... Reading Response on The Pool Players The Pool Players is a poem written by Gwendolyn Brooks. It was published for the first time along with a collection entitled The Bean Eaters by Harpers in 1960. With just eight lines, the poem is able to describe well the author’s own impressions and viewpoints on a prevalent practice among inner city and urban poor youth. Brooks had been known for writing poetry that oftentimes dealt with issues confronting America’s urban poor, particularly the African American communities. The Pool Players is apparently one of those poems that tackle with the problems confronting the youth not only then when it was first published but also now although it may be safe to state...

The Influences of Art on Fashion and of Fashion on Art The connection between art and fashion has existed for centuries with the intertwined concepts of reflection, communication, and elitism providing a space in which both ideas comfortably exist. Art has been a medium through which fashion has been expressed, the Renaissance providing the first examples of fashion having great importance in portraiture and extending to the twentieth century where photography took over the communicative media space in which fashion was used as an expression to the masses. Artists have actively participated in providing pattern and color concepts for textiles, thus physically influencing fashion through directly...

It’s sure that people observe and appreciate moral beauty in terms of vision, tastes, the senses of touch, taste, smell as well as hearing.

It is essential to note the differences between philosophy and other approaches used by humans, in addressing problems. It is also essential to note that philosophy immensely relies on critical thinking, reliance on rational arguments and systematic approach of issues (Munro 11). As a result, philosophy can be seen as a basic belief, attitude or concept used by a group or individual. Philosophy has crucial areas of inquiry, which include epistemology, logic, aesthetics, metaphysics, specialized branches, and...

In most instances, teachers use obsolete teaching strategies or at times insignificant content. Development and design of the curriculum and guidelines for effective teaching requires much time and concerted efforts. However, it remains unfortunate that most of the time such curriculum ends up in shelves while classroom instructions remain unchanged. Effective teaching loses meaning if a school’s curriculum is not strong enough.

This paper will aim at critically analyzing the views of Love by Plato and Solomon, both of which seem to defy each other while explaining the concept. In this context, Plato relates the concept of love with wisdom which is the highest form of love, i.e. philosophy drives love in a being where the sexual desires are driven by wisdom (Plato 84). In contrast, Solomon is of the view that that love is rather a convergence of various desires i.e. sexual, ethical or other practical...

To materialize the Counter-Reformation's outreach to its former members, artists utilized bright, inviting colors combined with loud contrast and the unique use of space to invoke passion and reverence in viewers. Such a display of contrasting light and dark is painfully obvious in the masterwork of Caravaggio. Caravaggio's paintings seem as if there is a spotlight on the central focus of the work.

People go to cinemas where nostalgic films, or movies that depict the past (e.g. American Graffiti, Titanic, The Battle of Algiers, etc.), are shown. Musical productions rekindle the music of the past decades. Nevertheless, what people feel or imagine when hearing the word ‘nostalgia’ varies considerably from its original connotation. The word ‘nostalgia’ originates from the terms ‘nostos’, which means ‘to return’, and ‘algos’, which means ‘pain’ (Trigg 2006, 53). Therefore, nostalgia has mostly been a representation of the ‘pain’ a person feels when s/he is not with his/her loved ones or...

... Book Cannibal Culture Book Root, Deborah Publication: 1996 Publisher: Westview Press Reviewer: Introduction The cannibal at the heart of culture and society remains a unique and actual part of our behavior even though it has in part, been ignored and vociferously denied, both in cultural anesthetization, and in the adjuration of our consumptive attitudes towards cultural differences.
