The principle dealt greatly with individualism. Humanism affected every cycle: politics, philosophy, religion and arts.

Sister Corita Kent CORITA KENT By John Keleher 12/14/00 American Pop Art was born of the newly found self-confidence with which American art had asserted itself. The subject matter which provided the initial impulse was the cultural concept of Americanism itself: the idea of progress, the media industry sensation, and the relative boom of stardom and cultural icons in Hollywood. The birth place of these new phenomena seems to have its roots in the city of New York, the so called cultural center

The infant Spike, much like the man he grew into, was small but loud. The family he was born into was great for a number of reasons.

How often have we heard somebody mention these things, yet, how often have we said something similar? Our society is based on face values where we categorize people because of the actions of a few.

Whether it is Calvacante dei Calvacanti struggling to see what happened to his son, the diviners in Hell condemned to walk backwards, or the blind Sapia in the second terrace of Purgatorio, the contrapasso of these characters does not allow them to see.

Such is the case of tragic literature and the cathartic effect it has on the reader, which has deteriorated a great deal from Sophocles’ writing of the true tragedy, Oedipus. Hamlet exemplifies partial decomposition of catharsis whereas Miss Julie epitomises an almost total collapse of the cathartic effect. It is assumed that the higher the status of the tragic hero, the easier for the 1990’s audience
