Landscape with the Fall of Icarus by Pieter Bruege

In this picture I see many different things. One of the first thing I saw was a men with really old style clothing with a whip riding a horse o some short of hill. I see the sun rising and the reflection of the sun in the sea. I see many different types of colors, I see green from the trees I see yellow from the sun and the horses hair, I see gray from the cliffs and mountains, I see brown from the horse the ground, the dog, the stick the men, I see red from the undershirt o the men riding the horse, I see blue from the sea and the sky and the blue shirt of the men holding the stick, I see white from the clouds and from the clothes from the men by the sea. I also see lots of ships in the sea about four of them. I see cliffs, mountains a little island with a cliff and some trees . I see waves, I see plants next to the horse and near the edges of the cliff. I see a men holding a long stick, and a dog next to him and more animals surrounding him, looks like his trying to lead the heard. . I see a staircase up ahead in front of the horse going up steeply. I also see a men sitting by the cliff watching the sea wearing white, looks like his touching the pointing at the water. I see that far up ahead toward the left there is place with buildings , looks like a little city. I see leggings the men whore back in the days I see the men in red wearing a dress type thing. I see tile for a path, I see rock in the sea. I see a knife with a little pouch right next to it , on top of a flat type of rock. I see long braches coming out the side of the cliffs looks dry with little amount of leaves, I see more braches nest to the heard but not dry with many leaves and very green, I see a little and two skinny straight trees to the left of the heard, and a big tree in front of the horse and more trees up ahead the fist ship. I see that in the island there is also a whole in the cliff there must be a cave. I see grassy hills on the left, behind the big tree that’s leads to the city. I see the men’s footwear looks like some rounder type of boots. I see flags on top of the ship, a white flag with a symbol. I also see something a little unusual, looks like there is a men drowning next to the ship in front of the men looking at the sea ,he has both his feet upside down coming out of the water , the men that looks at the sea might see that that men is drowning.


I was born in the Unites States but in the age of four i was taken to Brazil. Most of my childhood was in Brazil. I can write and speak two languages which are English and Portuguese. As a reader i find my self a little too inpatient, but when its a good book that gets my attention i can read it just fine. When i write i may have some mistakes like punctuations, but i make sure to always make sense. I'm a god student but sometimes i slack a little.

Landscape with the fall of Icarus

In the Poem "Landescape with the fall of Icarus" By William Carlos Williams, Williams demonstrates a short of distraction or wondering off. In the poem Williams starts of by talking about when Icarus felt, he said that when Icarus had fallen it was spring. William C.W starts to describe spring, and what was going on during that day and it seems the he drifted off into talking about how the spring day was, rather than keep explaining how Icarus fell and why he fell, and i think that he does that meaningfully to show us to show the readers purpose. Another reason is toward the end of the poem when he tells us that "of the coast there was a splash quite unnoticed " showing us that the fall of Icarus was unnoticed, just like how the poem is read.

In the Painting "Landscape with the fall of Icarus" by Brueghel Also shows no one noticing that Icarus had fallen and that he was dying. In the Painting it shows us lots of the setting , the painting is bright, sunny, the tress are fully leaved, but if you really pay attention to the painting very hidden you will see a person upside down in the sea drowning, and that suppose to be Icarus. The painting also shows us distraction, because it show every one doing there own thing during the beautiful spring day, but no one noticed Icarus falling to his death.

In the Story of "Daedalus and Icarus'' by Ovid Metamorphoses, the author makes a more detailed story of Icarus. In the Story "Daedalus and and Icarus", Ovid M. tells us the story from another point of view that had more focused on Icarus, he describes where Icarus was, and how he fell in more details.
