Carl Orffs philosophies in Music Education
Carl Orffs philosophies in Music Education While Carl Orff is a very seminal composer of the 20th century, his greatest success and influence has been in the field of Music Education. Born on July 10th in Munich, Germany in 1895, Orff refused to speak about his past almost as if he were ashamed of it. What we do know, however, is that Orff came from a Bavarian family who was very active in the German military. His fathers regiment band would often play through some of the young Orffs first att

Emily Dickinson
Emily Dickinson Emily Dickinson was raised in a traditional New England home in the mid 1800s. Her father along with the rest of the family had become Christians and she alone decided to rebel against that and reject the Church. She like many of her contemporaries had rejected the traditional views in life and adopted the new transcendental outlook. Massachusetts, the state where Emily was born and raised in, before the transcendental period was the epicenter of religious practice. Founded by t

Massachusetts, the state where Emily was born and raised in, before the transcendental period was the epicenter of religious practice. Founded by the puritans, the feeling of the avenging had never left the people. After all of the Great Awakenings and religious revivals the people of New England began to question the old ways. What used to be the focal point of all lives was now under speculation and often doubted. People began to search for new meanings in life. People like Emerson and Thor

Nemerov's contribution to our literature--as a gifted writer of fiction and critical prose, but pre-eminently as a poet-- does not seem to me to have received as much celebrity as it deserves. Nemerov's virtues are all in fact unfashionable ones for our time: vivid intelligence, an irreverent sense of humor, a mastery of formal verse, an awareness of mystery (Books 3). Although known primarily as a poet, Howard Nemerov has also distinguished himself as a critic, short story writer, and nove
Lesbian Poetry
Lesbian Poetry
Lesbian Poetry Since the beginning of time writers have expressed their deepest thoughts and desires through poetry. In poetry, writers have found that they can express a thought, a memory, a person, a landscape, etc. More often authors write about love, both physical and mental. Found in this genre of love is intimate imagery, suggestive language, and exotic fanticies. Most published love poems express love relationships between men and women but what most anthologies and collections leave out
Metamorphosis
Metamorphosis
Metamorphosis The method in Kafka's Metamorphosis is very direct. From his attention grabbing first sentence until the end of the 58 page story, Kafka bluntly tells the story of Gregor Samsa who found himself changed in his bed into a monstrous vermin. While most, if not all, critics treat the story as an extended metaphor, the text presents almost no evidence that Gregor’s predicament isn’t genuine. It can not be that Gregor simply sees himself as this hideous creature, because everyone who

Dickinson, Emily Elizabeth (1830-1886), America’s best-known female poet and one of the foremost authors in American literature. Dickinson’s simply constructed yet intensely felt, acutely intellectual writings take as their subject issues vital to humanity: the agonies and ecstasies of love, sexuality, the unfathomable nature of death, the horrors of war, God and religious belief, the importance of humor, and musings on the significance of literature, music, and art.

What brought Hitler to power Adolf Hitler did not live a very long life, but during his time he caused such a great deal of death and destruction that his actions still have an effect on the world nearly 50 years later. People ask what could've happen to this small sickly boy during his childhood that would've led him do such horrible things? For Adolf it might have been society, rejection from his father, failure as an artist or was he born to hate? Adolf was born in Braunau, Austria in 1889.

When one thinks about Hitler, one probably doesn’t think about his childhood. Hitler had a very rough and harsh upbringing. His father was a drunk, and he moved a lot when he was a child. Not many people thought Hitler would amount to anything. He was lonely. He thought that all of the Jewish people had nice houses, food and slept in comfo
