Two equally strong but antithetical voices speak in Christina Rossetti’s poetry: the sensuous, which is with some justice associated by critics with Pre-Raphaelitism, and the ascetic, which is not confined to her devotional verse, but speaks also in her secular poems. The critics Sandra M. Gilbert and Susan Gubar have defined the aesthetics of renunciation as the key element of all Rossetti’s writing, and they suggest that her aesthetics derived less from her ascetic Christianity than from her position as a woman poet in Victorian England. The tension between the sensual and the ascetic, between revelry and renunciation, however it may be interpreted, is central to Rossetti’s poetry.
One temptation is to view this tension as the meeting of two intellectual movements in Victorian England: the Pre-Raphaelite movement in art and poetry and the Oxford Movement in theology, both of which profoundly influenced Rossetti’s thought and art. The Pre-Raphaelites got their name from their conviction that after the Italian painter Raphael (1483-1520), European art and poetry took a wrong turn toward representational realism and away from symbolism and simplicity. The poetry and art of the English Pre-Raphaelites, consequently, celebrated sensuality, minute detail, formal simplicity, and a symbolic system emulating medieval iconography. It is true, as Rossetti’s most recent critics have maintained, that she cannot be considered merely a passive learner of Pre-Raphaelitism—indeed, she must have influenced it as much as it influenced her. She was there at its beginning, and Goblin Market, and Other Poems was the first poetic voice of the movement, shining in popular and critical praise while the poetry of William Morris and Dante Gabriel Rossetti lingered unnoticed. Her connection with the movement may be overemphasized, but it cannot be ignored.
The Oxford Movement, on the other…...

Thank You for Smoking (Film Review)

...Thank you for smoking „Thank You for Smoking“ is a political satire film by Jason Reitman. The film is adapted from a novel by Christopher Buckley. „Thank you For Smoking“ tells a story about Nick Naylor (Aaron Eckhart), who is a tobacco lobbyist. His job is to questioning opposing health claims and advocating personal choice and smoking. As he says in the film, he has a bachelor's degree in kicking ass and taking names. At the same time he tries to be a good father for his twelve year old son, Joey. As the tobacco sales are falling and anti-tobacco campaigns getting more influential, Naylor suggests that putting cigarettes back to movies could once again boost tobacco sales. His boss, called BR (J. K. Simmons), sends him to Los Angeles to meet the Hollywood superagent Jeff McGall. They work out a plan to put cigarettes in upcoming movies. Everything goes perfectly until Nick has an affair with ambitious journalist, Heather Holloway (Katie Holmes). Nick belives he can trust her and tells everything about his life and work. But Heather publishes an article about his life and secrets. After that, Nick gets kicked from his job. Eventually, he talks himself out of that mess and gets another job. Actors carry out their role perfectly especially Aaron Eckhart and J.K. Simmons. This film portrays perfectly the pain spots of America's society. However, in my opinion, I did not like the way how film portrays anti-tobbaco people, because they seemed to be rather ridiculous, which......

Thank You Ma'Am - Analytical Essay

...Analytical essay of Thank You M’am The short story “Thank You M’am” is written by the famous black writer Langston Hughes. This fictional text is about the teenager Roger, who tries to steal the purse of the large woman Mrs. Luella Bates Washington, who instead of reporting the boy to the police or run frightened away chooses to learn him an alternative lesson, by taking him to her house and wash his face. There is no place in the text that tells where the story takes place, but it is most likely that the location is somewhere in the United States, as Langston Hughes is American. The action in the story is in the street, where the boy and the woman meet, and in the woman’s house. The time of the story is probably around the 1950’s, as it is within the living period of Langston Hughes, but also the character Mrs. Washington works in a beauty shop (p. 3, l. 41), which was not a very common thing before the 50’s. There is no indications in the text that tell anything specific about the social environment, but as the boy, Roger tries to steal from Mrs. Washington, he is in all probability poor, and Mrs. Washington is probably from the middle class, as she has a house. In the story we meet two persons: The teenager boy, Roger and the woman, Mrs. Luella Bates Washington. Roger is around fourteen or fifteen years old, wearing blue jeans and tennis shoes, and he was also looking frail (p. 1, ll. 35-36). It is possible that he does not have any one to take care of him, but it is......

They claim that their research has found no defective evidence of any linkage.

Senator Finistirre is the promoter of a bill to add skull and crossbones poison warning to cigarette packaging. During a televise debate with Finistirre, Naylor receives a treat from a caller. Despite the treat, Naylor still plans to appear before a U.S. Senate committee to fight Finistirre’s bill. Naylor is then kidnapped and covered in nicotine patches. Awakening in hospital, the very high nicotine tolerance level resulting from his smoking has saved him from death, but now he is hypersensitive to nicotine and can never smoke again.

You Decide John and Jane Case

...business income like in our situation here with John, then it will be treated as a self-employment income that will be taxed after deducting any business expenses. “Self-employed individuals generally must pay self-employment tax (SE tax) as well as income tax. SE tax is a Social Security and Medicare tax primarily for individuals who work for themselves. It is similar to the Social Security and Medicare taxes withheld from the pay of most wage earners. In general, anytime the wording "self-employment tax" is used, it only refers to Social Security and Medicare taxes and not any other tax” http://www.irs.gov/businesses/small/selfemployed/index.html B. How is the $25,000 treated for purposes of federal tax income? The 25,000 is treated as an income and at the same time as a business expense. The $25,000 should be included in John’s income since he received it, while he still can claim this amount as a business expense, so he will be taxed on this amount. C. What is your determination regarding reducing the taxable amount of income for both (a) and (b) above? The $25,000 has been used already as business expenses, so it is not taxable income. The $300,000 is considered a lump sum payment for two years of work on this case; therefore John needs to see what his best option to report this income is. If John reports his income in one year, that will put him in a higher tax bracket. The more income you make, the higher taxes you pay, so the better option is to review last......
