Exploring Self

... His attitude was one of hopeless resignation as he looked toward a distant bird winging its flight way from him.” (The Awakening, Page 25) This shows that music evokes Edna’s desire for sex and a more passionate life. Her imagination about the male figure clearly depicts the world of her own mind. Surely, it is common that she will be blamed for having a desire of sex and crazy actions. However, Mademoiselle Reisz serves as a force in supporting Edna to talk with her inner figure and find out the true self, regardless of other interpretations. In general, Mademoiselle Reisz nurtures the quest for individuality and female liberation: “Mlle. Reisz stands for the possibility of female independence”, (The Awakening, Page 269, Line 152) and this especially sets a good example for Edna to appreciate. According to the author’s argument, Mlle. Reisz encourages Edna to choose her own lifestyle and defy expectations, by writing, “Her music indeed seduces and entwines Edna, blending into, even as it seems to articulate, the nameless, shapeless longing that consumes and fires Edna’s soul”. (The Awakening, Page 260, Lines 154-157) Edna seems to recover from Reisz’s artistic and sensual seduction, and gradually chooses to live alone without any social restriction by dedicating herself to her lover and to art. Edna is willing to defy conventional expectations and becomes an artist with a brave soul. Searching for absolute individuality, Edna has to give up valuable things, like......

Once Upon a Time

...All the early anthologies, Le piacevoli notti (The Pleasant Nights 1550-53) by Giovan Francesco Straparola, Lo cunto de Ii cunti better known as The Pentamerone (1634-36) by Giambattista Basile, Histoires ou Contes du temps passe (Stories or Tales of Times Past 1697) by Charles Perrault, and Les Contes des fees (Fairy Tales 1697) by MIne Marie-Catherine d'Aulnoy demonstrate a shift in the narrative perspective and style which not only altered the original folk perspective and reinterpreted the experience of the people for them but also endowed the contents with a new ideology. This was most apparent in France at the end of the seventeenth century when there was a craze for fairy tales written by such aristocratic ladies as Mme d' Aulnoy, Mlle Lheritier, MIle de la Force, MIle Bernard, and Mme de Murat. 17 A good example of the drastic change of the folk tale for aristocratic and bourgeois audiences is "Beauty and the Beast."IB The transformation of an ugly beast into a savior as a motif in folklore can be traced to primitive fertility rites in which virgins and youths were sacrificed to appease the appetite and win the favor of a drought dragon or serpent. Parallels can be found in other tales and wall paintings during the Ice Age when people worshiped animals as protectors and providers of society. It was also believed that human beings were reincarnated after death as animals or plants and could intercede for the maintenance of a social order. Their magic power provided......

...normal boy. A boy’s natural interest in sexual adulthood differs by age and can be sparked by a girl in a class or something odd such as being punished by an authoritative woman. For Rousseau, his sexual opening began when Mlle Lambercier punished him by inflicting physical pain. He found that every hit made him have a special feeling for her. He could not understand why. Instead of learning his lesson in fear of repetition he chose trouble to insure another strike. He found “the pain inflicted, and even in the shame that accompanied it, an element of sensuality which left [him] with more desire than fear” (65). Rousseau did not understand why he enjoyed the pain afflicted on him but this minor event inspired his tastes, desires, and passions for the rest of his life. He included this embarrassing event to show he was not afraid to tell all about his life. He wanted the reader to believe everything he wrote was the truth, unfiltered. This event was not forgotten but became more distinct as he entered adulthood. It seems like he wanted to ask a women to afflict pain on him but he knew “[his] pleasure… cannot be extracted by the man who desires it, nor guessed by the women who alone can bestow it” (67). He is too embarrassed to ask a woman to do what Mlle Lambercier did to him, but craves the chance it will happen again. Sex is a natural way of life; the urges and everything that comes with it cannot be explained but only felt. These extravagant feelings are a way to keep......

Washington Irving as an Influence of the American Romantic Movement

...most prized possessions, and in them, he was constantly trying to improve on his writing. (Williams). Another source of inspiration for Irving was the European myths and legends that he learned of. In fact, “Irving's most important friendship in Granada, both now and during his second visit in 1829, was with this Spanish peasant, Mateo Ximénez, who acted as his guide and who told him many tales which later appeared in Irving book. (The Alhambra 1832)” (Williams) (22) “Irving wanders into the town of Sleepy Hollow, New York, and is told of the story of the Headless Horseman, also known as the Galloping Hessian.” (Characteristics) (Booksie)A final source of influence for Irving’s writings are the, “delightful letters,” that Irving wrote to Mlle. Antoinette Bolviller, a niece of M. D'Oubril, the Russian minister at Madrid. Irving took great pride in these letters, and he often sought help on writing them. There is speculation that this is one of the reasons that he decided to be a writer. To finish, Irving’s trip to Europe was a major stimulus in his becoming a writer. 
 Moving on, several writing characteristics considered to be defining factors of American Romanticism can be traced back to Washington Irving, as he was the first American who made his living out of writing. In his article on American Romanticism, Professor Bruce Harvey notes, “The characters of Romantics are often trying to seek the beautiful or ideal.” (Harvey) One of the first real American appearances of......

...lifes and interiors that are themselves pervaded by a sense of great stillness. His Silver Tureen (59.9) dates from this year. • 1731 François Boucher (1703–1770) returns to Paris after a three-year stay in Italy, where he studies the works of Baroque masters as well as Italian and Dutch landscapists and Venetian vedute. He is soon received by the Académie Royale (1734) and numbers among his patrons King Louis XV (r. 1715–74) and Madame de Pompadour, the king's mistress (see 20.155.9; 49.7.46). Boucher's paintings—with their bright palette and sentimental or erotic themes—as well as his prolific designs for furniture, tapestry, and other decorative objects, exemplify the spirit of the Rococo. • 1732 Jean-Marc Nattier (1685–1766) paints Mlle de Lambesc as Minerva with the Comte de Brionne (Louvre); the idealized, mythologizing portrait type secures for Nattier great popularity at court and remains fashionable until late in his career. • 1737 The Salon, an annual exhibition of paintings selected by a jury of artists from the Académie, is permanently established; it is held at the Salon Carré of the Louvre. • 1745 Louis XV allows the pottery at Vincennes to manufacture porcelain bearing the royal fleur-de-lis emblem; pleased with its output, he later moves the factory to Sèvres (1756), near the château of Madame de Pompadour. The workshops at Sèvres produce costly objects such as small sculptural figures, tableware, vases, clocks, and plaques with brilliant ground......

...any one man. She explains to Mlle. Reisz that “[t]he house, the money that provide for it, are not mine” (Chopin 113). It all belongs to her husband and therefore she feels that she must move out in order to be completely free of male dominance. She “had resolved never again to belong to another than herself” (Chopin 114). She is “no longer one of Mr. Pontellier’s possessions to dispose of or not. I give myself where I choose” (Chopin 151). Edna’s sexual affair with Arobin makes her feel remorseful because she has been unfaithful to her own feelings of love towards Robert. The problem is that Edna does not want to belong to Robert as his wife, so when he says that maybe her husband will let her go, she laughs and tells him that she chooses for herself now. Her choice is never to marry again, but Robert cannot handle that kind of a relationship and that is why he leaves only with a note: “Good by—because I love you” (Chopin 156). Edna now realizes that not even love can give her the relationship she desires. To go against the social system Edna needs support and this is something that she lacks. Tyson writes that in order to resist the system “we must constantly struggle to understand and resist the various ways in which patriarchy dictates our lives although we can’t always see all the ways in which it does so” (93), and this is hard to accomplish without support. It is necessary for Edna to have someone to talk to, but not even the emancipated Mlle. Reisz offers any real......

This one day though, it was different and it changed my life. I sat down in my typical seat, two rows from the front. As Mlle. Confiant began her class she advised us all to open our binders to a new page, and pay very close attention because we are about to do something very different. The board was so clean you could see the new LED lights reflecting off the white, dry erase material, you could smell the odour of Windex lingering around the room, what was she about to do? With her skinny, narrow back facing a crowd of hormonal teenagers, passing along contagious yawns, she wrote “DNA”.

Even though It can get confusing, everyone should study human biology at least once, the way she explained it, there was something about it that just sparked in my mind causing a wild fire of excitement, the passion in her voice was contagious. “Your DNA is like a blue print to your body.” Those words that Mlle.

Louis 14th, Lully, Moliere

...impose the thought of glorifying the monarch and monarchy through the arts and also he used art as a tool for political gain. For this purpose he created the Royal Academy of Dance in 1661 and the Academy of Music in 1671. He supported the artists in order to establish a unique French style both in literature and music, thus these artists were able to try to create new forms, feeling the king’s protection and support. Following the glorious years, his personal rule was affected by problems from 1685 until he died in 1715. During the Louis 14th era, Jean- Baptiste Lully ( 1632- 1687 ) was the major composer of the French Baroque style. He was originally Italian born, a Florentine, who moved to France at the age of eleven in order to tutor Mlle de Montpensier in Italian. He was studying dance and music in Italy and then he continued to study composition and harpsichord in France. His landmark in his career was the ‘’Ballet de la nuit’’. The relationship between Louis the Fourteenth and Jean-Baptiste Lully began in this ballet which they danced together for the first time. One of the most interesting aspects of Louis XIV’s interaction with the arts was his involvement as a skilful performing dancer. Generally he played the most attractive roles and displayed as a a god-like figure like the ‘rising sun’. In this ballet, Louis XIV gained his nickname the "Sun King" from the role of the same name that he played so successfully (Harman and Milner 1959, 171). After this......
