 I don't want to post the villains we chose on here to keep them a secret so if you are curious just email me and I can send you the list.

Have a great weekend! :]

  2. Jason Dziadosz1:56 PM CST


    FQ: What did Santayana consider to be "a certain kind of poetry"(85).

    DQ: Santayana considered the beauty we perceive in art as a subjective experience. That is, our experience dictates what we find beautiful. Two people with different life experience can see the same work of art as either beautiful or ugly and terrifying. Do you agree? Or is the beauty in art there because the artist is talented?

    If you thought this was a well done piece of art, do some possible preconceived notions about this man affect the way you feel when you look at it?
