Mr. No Face

All the kids laugh and joked about him as he walked threw the park. They called him Mr. No face. He had this long gray and black beard that covered his whole face, all you could see is his beady hazel eyes covered with bushy gray eyebrows. He walked with a limp to the left as if his lefts foot always bothered him. His brown slacks, which were held up by black suspenders, were always creased perfectly down the middle. He wore a black hat with a red and white feather on the left side. His white button-down shirt was neatly pressed with military creases. His black pointy toe shoes slid as he walked. Though he never said a word to anyone, he would hum in a deep voice the National anthem. As he walked and passed anyone, he would just put his head down and keep humming. Never did he mess with anyone, but the neighborhood kids were so cruel to him. They would scream No face is coming, No face is coming, and gathers behind him imitating his walk. Most of the time he would ignore them, but every now and then he would stop, turnaround, lift up his hairy face and growl at the kids, rrrrrrrrrrr. And they would all start running. And if you were brave enough to look back, you could see him smile for a brief second. One day while Mr. No face was sitting on the park bench a little freckle face boy walk up to him as he sat humming the national Anthem. Mr., what is your name, the little boy said. But Mr. No face did not answer he just started humming louder. The little boy, out of curiosity, then said, why do you keep humming the same old Nation Anthem. But Mr. No face just got just louder and louder. But to Mr. No faces surprise, the little boy did not leave; he actually started singing the National Anthem as Mr. No Face hummed. The two were so loud that people started gathering to here them hum and sing. The little freckly face boy had a beautiful voice and Mr. No faces deep humming could sooth the soul. No time at all people started to give them money and clapping. The two sing from morning until noon, and at 12:30 on the dot, Mr. No Face stopped humming and the little freckle face boy singing. The crowd that had gathered went away leaving Mr. No Face and the little freckly face boy starring at each other with a hat full of money in the middle of them. Mr. No face stood up towering over the little freckle face boy, and said, my name is hop and I hum the National Anthem because gives me hope, that one day I will meet a friend like you, who will not judge me for what I look like but for what’s in my heart. Now let’s take this money and get some ice cream. And the two walked side by side to the ice-cream shop humming and singing our great National Anthem.

The Minister's Black Veil

...Throughout this eye- opening parable, “The Minister’s Black Veil,” by Nathaniel Hawthorne, there are both, positive and negative effects of Mr. Hooper’s black veil. Hawthorn reveals whether or not Mr. Hooper’s black veil is worth wearing by the time he dies at the end of the story. The first time Mr. Hooper wears his black veil, people immediately feel frightened and wonder why their minister “has gone mad” (Hawthorne 9). Mr. Hooper does not mean to scare everyone, he is simply covering his face from the world, in which he says, “If I hide my face for sorrow, there is cause enough and if I cover it for secret sin, what mortal might not do the same?” (Hawthorne 35). Everyone speaks only of bad things about him, “I would not be alone with him for the world. I wonder he is not afraid to alone with himself” (Hawthorne 16). Even his fiancé questions their relationship. No one wants a husband whose face is always covered by a depressing veil. He refuses to remove it and explain to her why he is wearing this veil. Mr. Hooper loves Elizabeth dearly and does not want her to leave him, “Have patience with me, Elizabeth!” (Hawthorne 39), he cries passionately. He watches her leave and he “smiled to think that only a material emblem has separated him from happiness” (Hawthorne 43). Why is Mr. Hooper choosing to face all these negative actions from all his closest friends?...

Representation of American Art History

...John Singleton Copley painted Portrait of Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Mifflin (Sarah Morris). This is the only portrait that I have selected that shows both man and woman. I feel that these six works of art show the growth of how women were presented from 1671-1893. The works of art that I have selected are Mrs. Elizabeth Freake and Baby Mary(1671-74), Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Mifflin(1773), The White Girl(1862), Miss Amelia Van Buren(1891), A Virgin(1892-93),and Lady Agnew of Lachnaw(1892-93. I believe that these paintings are similar in many ways, yet different as well. Anonymous, Mrs. Elizabeth Freake and Baby Mary, This painter, although unknown, can be attributed to half-dozen portraits that were painted in Boston. This colonial painter shows their knowledge of traditional British portraiture that is derived from representations of Elizabeth I. As you can see by looking at this painting, this artist gave more attention to the clothing that Mrs. Elizabeth Freake is wearing then to Mrs. Freake’s characteristics. This portrait was done in oil on a 42 ½ X 36 ¾ “ canvas. One way that I feel that this painting is different than the other paintings is that it is a pendant portrait. This was painted to hang next to the portrait of Mr. Freake. These paintings were meant to complement each other. This portrait is similar to Portrait of Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Mifflin in the way that the artists have made the background so dark it is almost black....

...On his way out, he passed Mr. Sam Carr, the little gray hair man who owned the store. Mr. Carr looked up at Alfred as he passed and said in a very soft voice, ''Just a moment, Alfred, one moment before you go.'' Mr. Carr spoke so quietly that he worried Alfred. ''What is it, Mr. Carr?'' ''Maybe you'd be good enough to take a few things out of your pockets and leave them here before you go.'' Said Mr. Carr.  ''What things? What are you talking about?'' ''You've got a compact and a lipstick and at least two tubes of toothpaste in your pockets, Alfred.'' ''What do you mean?'' Alfred answered. ''Do you think I am crazy?'' His face got red.
