The White Umbrella Essay

  • The Mask By Rene Magritte

    picture is an average man wearing normal business clothes and does not have any defining features that would lead a viewer to think he is a particular or well-known figure. The man’s suit has no logos or symbols to give an idea of who he is, he lacks tattoos or an abnormal haircut, and has a generic face rather than an easily recognizable one. This confirms him as part of the general population, an everyday man who feels the need to mask his personality. The masks hanging on the coat rack are normal human faces, not clown, costume, or theatre masks. This shows that the masks are not particular to his career or made for a special occasion, but daily acessories used to camouflage himself. The masks are mixed in with other normal accessories; an umbrella and hat. If they were hanging with wigs and boa scarves instead, it would lead one to assume that they are special embellishments rather than everyday accessories. Everybody wears masks to make themselves appear different than they naturally do, but the people they mask themselves from are public, not…

  • Literary Analysis Of The Handmaid's Tale

    An important explanation that The Handmaid’s Tale lacks, is that of children. In the novel the children of Gilead are not mentioned very much, and therefore I wanted to elaborate more on this aspect. The bunny in my fan fiction symbolises the innocence of children in Gilead. White is color that is usually associated with innocence, purity, and goodness. This describes not only Kairi, but all of the children in Gilead. These children do not know what is going on around them, and are too innocent…

  • Advantages And Disadvantages Of Push And Precious

    Throughout Push and Precious, disadvantage is a theme that is painted very comprehensively as both the film and novel progress. While the book itself delves further into detail about Precious’s situation, it is clear to understand the disadvantage that comes into play in more ways than one. There are pivotal moments of both outlets that show disadvantage as not only Precious’s problem, but also a problem for her mother, grandmother, and even for the minor characters as well. In both the novel…

  • Wrigley Advertising Analysis

    Results: I have chosen a total of ten advertisements created by Wrigley’s gum company. The first ad is from the year 1910. It is a plain and simple add. The background is a solid evergreen color adorned only with a pack of spearmint gum in the center and a few words above and below. The words say, “Fine for the breath, Fine for the teeth.” The next ad puts us in the roaring 20’s. This add from 1920 has a more color on it and it is displaying a beach scene with a lady relaxing under an umbrella…

  • Global Queing Examples

    The ethnocentric nature of queer terminology means that certain labels are often at odds with the vernacular of non-western regions. While the word queer is a convenient umbrella term for different gender identities and sexualities, its history as a term used by mostly white American academics contributes to the overall hegemonic nature of queer identities and discourse. In Taiwan, the local term “tongzhi” (an umbrella term similar to queer) has been somewhat eroded by western queer terminology…

  • Religious Orientation And Racial Identity Attitudes In African College Students: A Comparative Analysis

    In "Determining the Identity of ‘Black Africans’ in UK Population and Health Policy Contexts: Ethical Issues and Challenges,” Martha Chinouya and Peter Aspinall argue that the term “Black African’ is a better way to identify Blacks that are born in Africa. The United Kingdom started including Black African and Black Caribbean in the 1991 census. Although this article talks about the use of Black African in the medical field in the United Kingdom I think it is useful to think about these…

  • Coca Cola Advertisement Essay

    One very important visual aspect can be seen almost every second during the minute long commercial: a Coke bottle. One is placed on the edge of the coffee table in the first scene, one in the middle of the table at the dinner table scene, and then at the very end next to the boy on the bench. As well, Coke is the only company logo able to be seen thought the ad, and even things such as the game controller and phone cannot be identified as a specific brand. This gets the audience to establish a…

  • What Is Harriet Jacobs Incidents In The Life Of A Slave Girl?

    its emphasis on modesty by giving a sanitized version of her book, and Harriet’s ultimate desire of a home of her own for herself and her children, perpetuating the idea that the home is a women’s ‘sphere’. But, in order to protect herself from Dr. Flint’s advances, Harriet is forced to throw away the Victorian standard of purity to protect herself. As a result, Harriet struggles to share her story as a woman who is now seen as being stained or tainted. During the 1880s to 1920s, the Victorian…
