He created beautiful works of art now exhibited in many places of the world. I picked him because I have had many experiences with his art, and I love his style of painting, especially how he made light realistic. Examples of this can be seen when light shines on water or when the moon is present. This and the amount of detail makes looking at Turner’s art very enjoyable. The first stage of his life was very hard. I think he may have started art to focus on other things. Early Life Joseph Mallord William Turner, was baptized May 14, 1775, but his actual birthdate is…

    One difference in the two pieces is based on the perspective each artist used when describing it. In Wordsworth’s poem, he conveyed his view of the Abbey as if it was far away. He writes “The day is come when I repose here, under this dark sycamore, and view these plots of cottage-ground, these orchard-tufts…. Once again I see these hedge-rows, hardly hedge-rows, little lines of sportive wood run wild: these pastoral farms, green to the very door; and wreaths of smoke sent up, in silence among…

    Disgrace is told from narrator’s point of view which basically follows that of the main character David Lurie. That is why throughout the novel a lot is omitted, such as other characters motives and thoughts, like those of Lucy and Melanie. The author leaves them to reader’s personal understanding. On one hand it may frustrate us readers a we are always looking for clarity. But on the other hand, that is a projection of our real life, where we are so often unable to understand others. Rachel…
