  • Influences of Nature and Biography in the Works of Emily Dickinson

    This is a 5 page paper discussing Emily Dickinson and two poems from her Nature class. Emily Dickinson (1830-1886) wrote well over 2,000 poems during her life in Amherst, Massachusetts but only seven were published while she was still alive. After her death, her poems were classified and published. Dickinson was heavily influenced by several factors in her life: the religion of her father, the impact of the Civil War, and nature. A look at two poems from her “Nature” class shows how Dickinson combines all of these symbolic elements to depict a time of loneliness, longing and false hope. Although the poems describe a time in nature when summer is just out of reach, the meanings run much deeper for Dickinson and her readers, as for her summer is a time of life, fruitfulness and happiness which has been lost. Bibliography lists 4 sources.

  • Life and Works of Nineteenth Century French Composer Cesar Franck

    This is a 9 page paper discussing composer Cesar Franck and his works.

While he was known initially for his organ music and playing, especially in the new church of Ste. Clotilde in Paris, he became considerably better known for his range of compositions throughout his lifetime. The organ and the Church played significant roles in some of his early works but his talent was truly revealed through his exceptional range in compositions which included not only singular pieces for the organ, keyboards and other instruments but also symphonies, chamber music and the nineteenth century phenomenon symphonic poems, among others. Much of Franck’s work showed the influence of the Church within his work and life and many of his works are still used within the Catholic liturgy.

  • Was Thomas Edison a Genius or Simply Seeking the Limelight?

    10 pages. There are those who feel that Thomas Edison was clearly a thinking man but certainly no genius. When asked to further explain, they would tell us that Edison enjoyed being in the limelight and achieving monetary success, as would most of us. There are also those who believe that Thomas Edison was a remarkable genius, and that nobody but another genius would be able to replicate the designs he devised. The interesting thesis of this paper is to point out that while Edison was possibly a genius, the fact is that almost anyone can learn to think the way Edison thought and to be as productive an inventor as the man who is best known for inventing the incandescent light bulb.

  • The Photography of Walker Evans

    This is an 8 page paper discussing Walker Evans’ life and photography with the Farm Security Administration (FSA) from 1935 to 1938. Walker Evans (1903-1975) was an American photographer who is probably best known for the introduction of documentary style photography which depicted the people and places of the United States through his extensive collection of still photographs. His style was one in which he faced his subject matter straight on and used a small aperture with a large 8 by 10 negative to enable him to produce sharp detail in his work. One of his better known collections was derived from his contract with the Farm Security Administration (FSA) from 1935 to 1938 when he took photographs of the buildings and people in the southern States during the Depression. His photographs of the poor tenant farmers were commissioned by the FSA to illustrate their need for government relief. Rather than create sympathetic scenes however, Evans remained formal in his approach to his subject matter and simply let the facts which existed provide ample evidence of the dire conditions of the farmers. Other photographs taken during his contract with the FSA were considered collages of local merchant life which again provided documentary-like detail in their context. Paper includes detail about three photographs taken during the contract with the FSA. Bibliography lists 10 sources.
