Question by Ivy: How and why is Jim Morrison still famous till today?
really need help its my english final and its the last question and I am dead i had finals all week what do u guys think?

Best answer:

Answer by Raivn
Because he was a poet and a musician, the lead singer of an extremely influential band. Because he defied the public’s idea of what a musician was. He blew through boundaries and refused to sell out when everyone else was doing so. Because he made love, drug use, crazy behavior, and sex art forms. Because he died so young, under mysterious circumstances, before the public had a chance to tire of watching him grow old and fat and ridiculous.

And probably mostly because he was such a jerk to so many people, constantly testing the ones that he loved, and people that he didn’t even know. The world loves a good mystery…and no-one was ever really able to get into Jim’s head and find out what made him tick.

Question by M: What is Gothic Romanticism and who were the famous authors?

What’s the difference between Gothic, Romanticism and Gothic Romanticism?

Best answer:

Answer by DaSha W
The gothic novel is a literary genre which is said to have been
created in 1764 when Horace Walpole wrote his novel ‘The Castle of
Otranto’. The main features of gothic novels included terror, mystery,
the supernatural, doom, death, curses and madness.

The term ‘gothic’ was originally used to describe both type of Art and
Architecture. Gothic novels were given a genre of their own primarily
because of their emotional extremes and their dark themes and because
it’s most natural settings were things like castles and monasteries
which were part of the typical gothic architecture. Some of the first
gothic novels included ‘The Castle of Otranto’ and ‘Byronic Hero’.

By about 1840, the gothic genre had played itself out and this was
partly due to writers who were developing the genre into the horror
fiction that it later morphed into. The gothic genre did, however,
have a long lasting effect and it led to a Victorian craze for ghost
stories and it also had an influence on Charles Dickens who read
gothic novels when he was younger and he later put the gothic
melodrama and gloomy atmosphere into his own books.

By the 1880’s, the gothic novel was revived and many authors of the
time such as Robert Louis Stevenson, Arthur Machen and Oscar Wilde all
wrote gothic works. Also, it was about this time that the most famous
gothic villain appeared in Bram Stoker’s ‘Dracula’ in 1897.

Elements of the gothic novel:

1. Setting in a castle.

2. An atmosphere of mystery and suspense.

3. An ancient prophecy

4. Omens, portents, visions.

5. Supernatural or otherwise inexplicable events.

6. High, even overwrought emotion.

7. Women in distress and sometimes threatened by a powerful,
impulsive, tyrannical male.

8. The metonymy of gloom and horror.

Question by Christian: Are celebrities brainwashed when they get famous?
I have been doing some research on social construction and found out that quite a few hip hop artists are siding with the dark side.Their videos are chock full of messages that refer to ancient teachings leading to matters of a spiritual nature.When they were younger their music may have been more honest and direct but after they become famous these mysteries begin to appear my question is this just a coincidence or are they being brainwashed by professors involved in the dark arts?

Nearly every piece of artistic expression, (especially one’s used to generate profit) is a rehash of old ideas.

Learn about Islam from Muslim Scholars and not Anti-Islam websites. Islam All Languages ══► islam.hotmailclub.com Read The Translation Of Quran And Do Whatever Appeals To Your Heart Quran 2 All Mankind ══► www.quranexplorer.com ══► zzrz.com ══► www.islam-guide.comMuslims believe that Jesus peace be upon him according to the Holy Quran is a wonderful, humble, generous messenger of God who came down and revealed God’s words to his people, the people of Israel. Muslims do not believe that Jesus is God, nor they believe that God ever chose to come down to earth in a form of a man to die for our sins to purify us and forgive us. Muslims believe that Jesus was sentenced to death, and people thought that he got executed on the cross. The Holy Quran rejects this idea, and claims that it is a false one. Jesus never died on the cross, nor he ever died for anyone’s sins. Let us look at what the Holy Quran (The Muslims Holy Scripture) says about this issue: Let’s look at verse 4:156-159 “That they rejected Faith; That they uttered against Mary A grave false charge; That they said (in boast): ‘We killed Christ Jesus The son of Mary, The Messenger of Allah.’ But they killed him not, Nor crucified him, but so it was made to appear to them, and those who differ therein are full of doubts, with no (certain) knowledge, but only conjecture to follow, for of a surety they killed him not. Nay, Allah raised him up Unto Himself; and Allah Is Exalted in Power, Wise. And there is none

Question by TheArabian3: What are some famous quotes or cartoons from the counterculture?
I have to make my own DBQ and Im having trouble finding documents and cartoons. Any quotes from the 1960′s would be appreciated because Im having trouble finding some.

Best answer:

Answer by Digital Age
What counterculture?
It was American culture. It was the culture of the world at the time.
Just because someone smoked a joint, popped a pill and listened to the Grateful Dead doesn’t mean they were another culture. That is a ridiculous myth.

Question by gsfortis: Does anyone know of any famous wizards in history, besides Merlin?
I realize Merlin is not a figure of historical fact. But I’m looking for wizards known in the lore of civilizations across the globe.

But not wizards of literature. So please, no mention of Gandalf, Dumbledore or Elminster.

Thanks.
