FIGURATIVE LANGUAGE Figurative language uses figures of speech such as similes and metaphor to evoke emotions in the reader and write a more impactful and appealing work of art. H.R Kulet employs these styles heavily, firstly to create likeable protagonists e.g. Resian, Taiyo and Minik and unlikable antagonists e.g. Oloisudori, Olarinkoi and Ole Kaelo. Building […]

There is an absurdity to the everyday which art does not have to exaggerate. It can be heightened and expanded slightly, yet never conjured, never willed into existence. “The world is a wasteland,” filled already with the constant pressure of menial daily tasks, social upkeep, and repeated over itself again & again & again & […]

When you think of magic you probably first imagine wizards on flying broomsticks or witches chanting over bubbling cauldrons. But if there is one thing I know for sure, it’s that true magic exists everywhere I look, and it’s not always sparkles and…

21 and counting By M.Schinke I’m not going to fight your war, OpinoinNerds When it comes to the MCU and it’s myriad of, “SuperHero” movie offerings I am not an unbiased observer. My opinion on the franchise as a whole has been built on ten years of storytelling which I have been in the theater […]

The Utah Review

In the heart of one of the country’s reddest states, it might surprise more than a few that some of the Utah Enlightenment’s finest arts organizations are putting substance behind the talk about diversity and inclusion. Women have pioneered two of the nation’s longest running contemporary dance institutions. The state’s arts and museums division was […]

I am going to use Propp’s theory to analyze The Lion King. The basic story of The Lion King is that Mufasa, Simba’s father, is the king of Pride Rock. However, Mufasa’s brother, Scar wants to be king. Since Simba would be next in line for the throne, Scar tries to kill both Mufasa and […]
