This entertainment has seen many changes from jesters to hangings to orgies to finally the combination of all of these into a stage performance known to the masses as theatre or performance art.

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

People were to love each other, and there was happiness and bliss. The hippie philosophy, though, didn’t just create itself. The hippie movement was revolutionized by Eastern influence in the areas of spirituality, music, theater, art, and drugs. The views of the East made the hippie culture more than just a small group of extremists.

There is a strong undercurrent of racial inequality in today\'s school systems, which negatively effect the quality of education that its students receive. A schools potential to give a proper education often depends on the perspective economic, and social, or should I say racial backgrounds of its stude

Social Control Both Michel Foucault and Truffaut\'s depiction of a disciplinary society are nearly identical. But Truffaut\'s interpretation sees more room for freedom within the disciplinary society. The difference stems from Foucault\'s belief that the social control in disciplinary pervades all elements of life and there is no escape from this type of control. Foucault\'s work deals mostly with power and his conception of it. Like Nietzsche, Foucault sees power not as a fixed quantity of ph

Song of the Unsung Antihero Abstract: The sober treatment of a lowly, unheroic protagonist in Arthur Miller\'s Death of a Salesman flatters the audience. The more obvious way that it flatters us is by alienating us from the protagonist in his downfall so that we watch his destruction from a secure vantage. Less obviously, the form of the play, typical of modern American tragedy, romanticizes the protagonist through what I call the audience\'s paradox, that tension created when a serious work of
