Streaming Good Writers: The Evolution of Television Writing
The 1970s saw a big push in public consumption of television. With well written programs like The Mary Tyler Moore Show, M*A*S*H, and Good Times, society scheduled their evenings around television programming. This trend continued into the 00s until the rise of reality tv and the advent of DVR and streaming networks like Netflix. The public began moving away from tv for a more niche market suited for individual experience. Analyze the rise of binge-watching and how this reality changed the ways writers approach script.
The Hard Truth: Analyzing George Carlin's take of Soft Language
Analyze the way George Carlin, in his comedy routine titled "Soft Language", discusses the evolution of language through jargon and euphemisms in daily society and interpret the effects of this evolution over time, beginning with the groundwork laid by Carlin in his 1990 Comedy Special Doin’ It Again and ending with modern day jargon and euphemisms.
As are many Romantics lol. It’s not for everyone. You may enjoy Modernist poems from the likes of Ezra Pound, William Carlos Williams, and Gertrude Stein.
That’s great to hear. Keep expanding that world view. Also, check out Jack Gilbert if you’re a fan of emotion filled poetry.
I can see that as well. That’s the beauty of poetry, right? There’s no one way to discuss or try to explain it.
Wordsworth seems to be the primary focus of most Romanticism classes. It’s sad sometimes because we forget about other greats like Coleridge, William Blake, and John Keats.
How exciting! You’ve just made me more happy than you can imagine. Knowing I had even a small part in generating another’s interest in experiencing poetry means a lot. I’d love to know what you were drawn toward.
That’s great! My dad’s not a big fan of poetry. It’s not a part of my life he entertains often. I’m glad you two could share in Coleridge’s work.
Beautifully explained. It’s amazing how a literary device such as dramatic irony can lift the inclusion of the reader in a story. When a reader feels as if they are part of the story as opposed to a simple viewer, the stakes change a bit in regards to character(s). While I may have a bias being a fan of Poe and enjoy reading what others have to say in regards to his work, I believe this analysis is extremely clear and insightful. The explanation of terror vs. horror is a refreshing angle for a repetitive theme found in Poe. Thank you for your contribution.
