Octavio Ocampo Every person has feelings. These feelings are aroused by a catalyst. A touch, a smell, a sight. When a person does art, his or her duty is to titillate the viewer. His or her work must be passionate, captivating and able to be thought about. When an artist renders a piece, be it a painting, water color, sculpture, dance or poem, he or she must inspire the viewer to come back and look at it a second and a third time. The artist must expand his or her mind to engulf others. Octavio

Medicine remained attached to astrology and other beliefs such as the supernatural. (Davis) Elizabethan times was the era in which Queen Elizabeth I and Shakespeare lived.

Crimes of the Heart by Beth Henley
Crimes of the Heart by Beth Henley The play, “Crimes of the Heart,” written by Beth Henley, is brilliantly charming, and Henley is completely deserving of her Pulitzer-Prize for this piece. My mother suggested I read this play because she says that I am very much like one of the main characters Lenny Magrath, and she said that I would be able to relate to many parts of the story. I found that the beginning of the play was somewhat slow and not very uplifting, but as the play progressed, I found

Edgar Allan Poe By: Tommy Smith Short Story Perversity Edgar Allan Poe is perhaps the best-known American Romantic who worked in the Gothic mode. His stories explore the darker side of the Romantic imagination, dealing with the grotesque, the supernatural, and the horrifying. He defined the form of the American short story. As one might expect, Poe himself eschewed conventional morality, which he believed stems from man\'s attempts to dictate the purposes of God. Poe saw God more as process than

Discrimination within the Death Penalty “They [prisoners sentenced to death] are almost all poor, usually white, often high school dropouts. Most have never killed before.

There is some critical information that is important to know before going more in depth on this discussion. The purpose of this paper is not to discuss whether capital punishment is effective in deter

Most of the time the brain is on autopilot, meaning that most of the activities preformed are just automatic. Our five senses; sight, sound, touch, taste, and smell, are automatically preformed in our brains.

They were the gods Shu and Geb and the goddesses Tefnut and Nut. Shu and Tefnut became the air, who stood on Geb, the earth, and held up Nut, who became the sky. Ra ruled over all. It was not
