What do Duke Ellington Bessie Smith George Gershwin and Louis
What do Duke Ellington, Bessie Smith, George Gershwin, and Louis Armstrong mean to us today? All these names to us don't really mean anything except Jazz musicians. But, about eighty years ago in the 1920's, these names meant a lot more. These names meant "father" of the trumpet, Empress of Blues, the Song Plunger, and the Greatest. Every musician wanted to be a Louis Armstrong or a Bessie Smith, and everyone looked up to them. The 1920's was a huge decade for the phenomena known as "Jazz". It w...

Emily Dickinson was not considered "normal" by most people's standards, and neither was her poetry. She used her sheltered life in Amherst to contrast the expansive universe her poetry encompassed. As a child, Dickinson appeared like an average schoolgirl. Inside, she knew she was different, a mourner among the children. She came from a religious and well-to-do family. She chose to follow he...

They were greatly inspired by African sculpture, by painters Paul Cézanne (French-1839-1906) and Georges Seurat (French, 1859-1891), and Fauvists. In Cubism the artist will break apart the subject matter, analyze it, and reassemble it in abstract form. This can produce some very strange and intriguing images....

A substantial portion of the poetic works of William Wordsworth tends
fairly autobiographical, or, at the least, highly concentrated upon his own experiences of enlightenment or lack thereof. Wordsworth has an obvious and deliberate propensity to be intensely self-revealing in his works, not only in assessing and describing his own morality and mysticism, but, also, in his perceptions of the world (more specifically, his perceptions of nature). Wordsworth closely examines his self-attributed position as a poet in The Prelude and asks himself whether or not it is h...
