  • May Swenson's Poetry

    poem, Out of the Sea, Early by May Swenson, the subject is the love of nature. The speaker tells a story about how beautiful the sun rise is by comparing it to things that have never been imagined before. The speaker however, is a more complex character with different outlooks on the ocean. The way the speaker delivers his tone is through a calm voice, representing the ocean that he or she is conversing about. Based upon the word choice, we can infer that the speaker is a sailor that comes the beach just before sunrise so he or she can experience the beauty every day. The unique thing about this particular poem is that this time, the sailor realizes how much the sun rise means to him. The grace and elegance astonishes him as he…

  • Women May Swenson Analysis

    When women let others define who they should be it only leads to a tragic end. Many women feel trapped by the expectations of others. People fail to realize that women are people not objects. Some even become stuck in a downward spiral because they are too busy trying to please the masses. In someone else’s head, we are all expected to act a certain way. That does not mean we have to do what they want us to do. Others opinions of our lives should not define how we live nor should it influence…

  • Mothers Of The Plaza De Mayo Analysis

    The Mothers of the Plaza De Mayo were direct victims of oppression. They were not only obvious victims of violence, but also victims of gender exploitation, powerlessness, and cultural imperialism as described by social justice theorist Iris Young. After reading Marguerite Bouvards “Taking space: Women and Political Power,” I have concluded that powerlessness can in fact be overcome, civil disobedience can work to bring awareness to grievances, and a three part strategy, as outlined by David…

  • Bohemian Rhapsody Controversy

    If vocal transparency alone can determine whether or not someone is the greatest singer of all time, then Freddie Mercury wins again. If one listens to Robert Plant sing “Custard Pie”, one may be lucky to pick up two out of every five words that are sung, but when you listen to Freddie Mercury sing one can clearly hear every word that is sung. Let us not forget that every band has at least one song where you cant clearly hear what is being sung, but no one has ever had the problem of…

  • Factors Affecting Brian

    these things. From the stereotypes above it may suggest that he did not know how to clean or he felt it was not his job to clean even though he signed the agreement. Brian had a job which he lost in the two week period; he may have not felt he could handle completing the cleaning, cooking and going to work all at the same time. This again may have been due to him having very traditionally views that women should complete household chores and he should only work. Therefore, he may have thought…

  • The Haymarket Massacre

    injured. People were afraid to get medical help because they could get arrested, causing many other deaths (Soucek 54). No one really knows who threw the bomb, but one theory is that the Pinkerton agents, who were hired by McCormick Harvesting Plant to break up protests, had thrown the bomb to control protesting workers and to discredit the labor movement as only wanting to hurt people.

    Mayo. These women focused their attention on finding their missing grandchildren who were either kidnapped with their parents or were born while their mothers were imprisoned and then given to “proper” families.

  • Analysis Of Bohemian Rhapsody

    I believe that they may have used heavy panning to make the song sound as though a large orchestra and choir are performing it. Some examples of where they have used panning are: - Harmonies in the opening section are panned on both sides. - On the vocals (0:36) the line “little high, little low” is panned fully left first and then fully right. - In the opera section (beginning at 3:02) there are many examples of use of the stereo field including “Thunderbolts and lightning” and…
