131: Vincent Van Gogh
... and paintings. Perhaps this was his way to a communion with God. In any case, it was in this crucible that his art was formed. In his short life Van Gogh wrote nearly a thousand letters, often several a day. Most were written to his brother Theo, possibly the one person in the world who understood him. Only to Theo could Van Gogh describe the impressions and feelings that boiled within him. The letters are extraordinary; literary critics have compared them to the works of the great 19th Century Russian masters of "confessional" writing. But even as he was writing so expressively Van Gogh apparently felt that words were ... an ear, he worked himself willfully, his painting interrupted only temporarily. As the anger of each attack passed, he became as bright as ever, painting landscapes, portraits, self-portraits and writing scores of clear, logical letters. Although he was troubled about his lapses, he knew they had not ruined his art. His work was not the work of a madman. His mature style, which flourished at Arles, became even freer; ...

133: Cyrano De Bergerac
... with Roxane, Christian sets out on a mission and dies. Cyrano never gets to tell her that it is really him that she has fallen in love with and it was he who wrote the letters because their conversation was interrupted when Christian is brought back dead. Not telling Roxane that it was him and not proclaiming his love to her then was Cyrano's tragic flaw and he suffered tremendously ... He is a hero because he helps many people including the baker and Christian. He helps the baker fight one hundred men in order to get into his house and he helps Christian by writing letters to Roxane and talking to Roxane for him.

135: I And II Thessalonians
The books of I and II Thessalonians, which are in the New Testament, are both letters to a church that Paul the apostle helped establish in the biblical city of Thessalonica. First Thessalonians is agreed by biblical scholars to be written by Paul. The author of II Thessalonians, however, is still ... believable in the first letter. (320) The major basis of the argument that Paul did not write II Thessalonians deals with the situation of eschatology. Eschatology is dealt with in opposite ways in the two letters. In Paul’s agreed work of I Thessalonians, he says that, “the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night” (5:2 NRSV). This is Paul’s way of urging his ... Thessalonians on this very subject. Evidence to support the argument that Paul is in fact the author of II Thessalonians can be found in the very beginning of the letter.

... one year had elapsed. Deeply shaken by this turn of events but far from broken, and taking hope in returning to school after a year, the narrator heads to New York City armed with seven letters from Dr. Bledsoe addressed to some prominent white people which he believes will help him in attaining a job.

139: He Got Game - Cinematography And Film Techniques
... as an adult, carefully putting away the same letter and starting to dribble the ball under his legs while sitting on his bed. He stops bouncing the ball and reaches for a box of unopened letters from his father in prison. Though we see both of Jesus' hands holding the box, the dribbling sound continues. The camera then cuts to a shot of his father dribbling the ball under his legs while sitting on the bed in his hotel room. Both the reading of the letters and the dribbling of the ball are actions that are matched in these match cuts. Lee shows a similarity between Jake and Jesus, and at the same time he differentiates how Jesus feels about his father and mother. The mother's letter has been fondly read many times, while Jake's letters are unopened. The best example of a match cut, however, comes in the very final scene of the film. The camera cuts back and forth between Jesus reading his father's letter and Jake ...
