Three Topics about Art P1

The introduction of stainless steel enabled constructors to make
“walls of glass” because it facilitated construction of large
“free facades.” The free façade is an engineering technology that
created by Le Corbusier`s Domino House. This technique uses load bearing
concrete columns or pilates. Since the facades were no longer structural
(were not required to bear weight burden), builders could sufficiently
use glass in place of the walls. One of the significant effects glass
facades have on the environment includes enhancing the aesthetics. A
glass wall is more attractive than a brick and mortar wall. Moreover,
glass facilitates availability of a larger space in a room since it is
relatively thinner than traditional wall. Environmentalists advocate
use of glass in construction because it encourages conservation of the
environment. Humans will not have to upset biodiversity while digging
up construction bricks (Cobb & ASM International, 2010).
The Chartres, St. Peter`s, Sagrada Familia, and Notre Dame du Haut
Catholic churches convey similar religious values by the virtue that
they are all catholic churches. However, they depict distinct religious
values from the Hagia Sophia in Istanbul since it is presently a
secularized monument serving as a museum. Besides, the building had been
affiliated with different religious values such as Eastern Orthodox,
Roman Catholic and Imperial Mosque (Cobb & ASM International, 2010).
The repeated line in the poem that gives the highest impact, includes
“Rage, rage against the dying of the light.” The phrase affected me
positively because it encourages people to people to approach old age
with confidence and valor. In addition, the personal uses a negative
word to portray a positive meaning. In an ordinary context, rage is a
vice. However, in the poem, the speaker uses to illustrate that people
should ensure to utilize their time wisely before every day ends.
Another repeated phrase with a strong relevance includes “Do not go
gentle into that good night.” This phrase is conspicuous since the
speakers have used it as a motivation to the elderly people who are
approaching at the end of their life.
These lines do give the poem a musical seriousness because they are
motivational phrases that the author intends to use in encouraging
elderly people to face death with courage. The issue of death is a
somber matter hence, these lines elicit a sense of seriousness.
In 73rd Sonnet, the speaker uses metaphors to describe what he
recognizes as his old age. In the first section, he describes his age
as a time of the year. Then he describes it as late twilight. In the
third quatrain, the speaker compares himself to glowing remnants of his
youth. Lastly, the speaker emphasizes that the young man should
emphasizes that the young man should nurture the highest love possible
because they will soon be parted, after the speaker will be extinguished
by old age just like the fire will do to the logs. In Li Ho’s The
Grave of the Little Su, the speaker describes his/her death scene.
He/she has a good life (decorated carriage) while his/her darling
(death) comes in a blue-white horse. However, the speaker is not sure
where he/she will meet his/her death (tie the knot).
The land of tears
This lion is difficult to behold
Beautiful souls drain in Hitler’s wrath
To the land of silence
For our sacrifices to the gods differ,
We lie in wait
For the sun to light up this ghost of darkness
