    corpse in order to reflect her negative impact on Grenouille. Giuseppe Baldini’s death is the most dramatically clear representation of a positive death. He treated Grenouille with more respect than he’d ever received, and taught the young boy everything he needed to know to live his dreams. “Maître Baldini fell asleep and awoke no more in this life.” (Süskind 111). Süskind portrays this death in a nearly poetic manner, reflecting the so to speak poetic ending of his life. This allows the reader to see the colossal difference between the negative impact of Gaillard and the positive influence of Baldini. Where Gaillard’s death reflects punishment, Baldini’s death reflects true happiness. “Only one thing remained of Giuseppe Baldini, Europe’s greatest perfumer: a very motley odor – of musk, cinnamon, vinegar, lavender, and a thousand other things…” (Süskind 111). Whereas motley generally describes unpleasant odors, this assortment of various scents represents the inner machinations of Baldini’s life, the individual components of the art that makes him so content. Baldini’s undeniable influence on Grenouille’s life mirrors the beauty of his death. Grenouille often describes people as beautiful solely by the scent they leave behind, Baldini’s death portrays the first representation of this concept, Baldini leaves his scent and dies as he attains everything he’s ever wanted. Neither the death of Gaillard, nor the death of Baldini are at the hand of Grenouille. After the deaths…

    In Giuseppe Verdi’s Otello, many compositional aspects change greatly between the first duet between Otello and Desdemona in act one and their second duet in act three. One of the most significant of these changed elements is the emotional position of Otello. Between the two duets, due to the skillfully crafted deceptions of Iago, Otello’s profound love and respect for Desdemona, his partner, is compromised and he moves to a place of interwoven devastation and rage (Kelly 351). This emotional…

    On the surface, one might not think that the great Italian opera La Traviata by Giuseppe Verdi and the acclaimed indie group Dinosaur Jr. have much in common. One concert, for instance, took place in an intimate performing arts center to an attentive and quietly reverent audience while the other in a loud, rough-and-tumble rock venue to a lively and informal audience. Indeed, there may appear to be no similarities between the effortlessly skilled classical stylings of the UNT College of Music…
