In viewing The Royal Tenenbaums one cannot miss the importance of the musical score. Wes Anderson relies heavily on the use of diegetic music to draw the viewer in and accentuate the message on the screen. Although Anderson does, on occasion use non-diegetic music, most of the music comes from with the story itself. From the opening introduction of the movie, which plays an orchestral version of the Beatles’ classic Hey Jude, through to the closing scene where we hear Van Morrison’s Everyone, during Royal Tenenbaum's funeral, It is obvious that the music plays an important role in helping us to understand and relate to the characters. It was not until the end of the film that I realized the significance of Anderson's choice of Hey Jude, (the lyrics "take a sad song and make it better"). As the Tenenbaums reveal how truly dysfunctional the family is, we realize that is what the family proceeds to do; "Take a sad song and make it better." Another good example of diegetic sound takes place as Margot Tenebaum steps off the Green Line bus and proceeds to walk in slow motion towards her adopted brother Richie. This slow-motion accent is accompanied by Nico's, These Days. Upon close attention you will hear the lyrics, loosely quoted, "I've been out walking, I don't do too much talking these days. These days, I seem to think a lot, about the things I forgot to do". The best example of how Anderson uses the diegetic sound in the film, occurs during, what I…
er a dream, he changes his mind, however. Mardonius, the luckless commander of the first expedition to Greece (above), the sons of Hippias, and the royal family of Thessaly (a Greek state) all urge him not to let Athens go unpunished. Xerxes is persuaded to undertake the large scale invasion of Europe. His uncle Artabanus (a brother of Darius) objects to the plan; the stakes are too high. Although Xerxes thinks the old man is a coward, he later admits that he is right and has some second thoughts…

Greek Mythology: Demeter
A myth is traditional or legendary story, one that includes epic heroes and gods and explains a cultural practice or phenomenon. Many of the gods or goddesses in these stories have special gifts that make us comfortable in what we know and believe in. One of these goddesses is in fact Demeter, Goddess of Bountiful Harvest.

The Battle for Education
In 1952, Ralph Ellison wrote a short story entitled “Battle Royal.” It is a story about an anonymous man and his journey to receiving a scholarship in the 1950's. The young African-American man was assigned to give a speech to all of the town's leading white citizens and this is how he would receive his scholarship. It may sound like an easy task; however, the man faces many oppositions along the way (Ellison)…
BATTLE ROYAL ESSAY
The American dream is something that people always look for when they come to America. But what is the American dream? In my opinion it’s the ideals of freedom, equality, and opportunity traditionally held to be available to every American. But that wasn’t the case before because in America slavery was present. In “Battle Royal” we can observe that slavery it’s gone but racism stayed. And with that present not everybody can be part of the American dream.

As a result, Lear’s excessive pride was what made him suffer the most; it caused him to be blind towards…
