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 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
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

The fact that he was flawed - a drinker, a gambler, a womanizer, driven by greed and a lust for high living - makes his life an enigma. Here is a man who saw his chance at the beginning of World War II and moved to Nazi-occupied Poland to open a factory and emplo

Felipe is the male equivalent of his mother’s name while Jacinto came from his uncle. The family lived in a small, rural

This modern drama effectively uses the aspects of music, splendid acting, and realistic scenery to create a must see movie that will strike the hearts of its viewers over and over again.

George Frederick Handel George Frederick Handel was born on February 24, 1685 in Halle, Germany. One of the greatest composers of the late baroque period (1700-50) and, during his lifetime, perhaps the most internationally famous of all musicians. Handel was born February 24, 1685, in Halle, Germany, to a family of no musical distinction. His own musical talent, however, expressed itself so clearly that before his tenth birthday he began to receive, from a local organist, the only formal musical

Hollywood's Attack on Religion The section that I have chosen to analyze from the book Hollywood vs. America is The Attack on Religion. In this part of the book, Michael Medved discusses the shift in attitude Hollywood has made toward religion, from acceptable to contemptible. He takes a look at the messages being sent in films, music and television in the last 15 to 20 years and analyzes their effects. In general, Hollywood depicts religion in an unfavorable manner, according to Medved. Moreo

The Rise of the Manchus Although the Manchus were not Han Chinese and were strongly resisted, especially in the south, they had assimilated a great deal of Chinese culture before conquering China Proper. Realizing that to dominate the empire they would have to do things the Chinese way, the Manchus retained many institutions of Ming and earlier Chinese derivation. They continued the Confucian court practices and temple rituals, over which the emperors had traditionally presided. The Manchus cont
