Provide a 5 pages analysis while answering the following question: The Present Concept of Beauty. Prepare this assignment according to the guidelines found in the APA Style Guide. An abstract is required. Often these standards of being beautiful are far from something that is feasible and healthy. This exerts pressure on people and often has lethal consequences. Take for example the case of Laura Willmott, 18 years old who is not only beautiful but is also bright and talented but still did not feel “thin enough”. So she starved herself to “barely five stones in weight” until she “collapsed and died from cardiac arrest” (Harding). Another straight-A student Anna Wood who was only 16 years old died from anorexia. Anna was never fat as her mother would describe her but she was already watching her weight and dieting herself to death at age 15 (Hull) when she should just have fun just like any normal girl her age should. The concept of beauty is now becoming unhealthy because it is being exploited to peddle some products and services that would make a business profit. In this essay, I would argue that the present concept of beauty is problematic because it is driven by commerce that is already becoming unhealthy and is something that is far from feasible. An examination of the definition of beauty reveals that it has nothing to do with weight, skin color and other standards of beauty imposed by commerce. From John Maynard Keats definition of beauty as “A THING of beauty is a joy for ever: Its loveliness increases. it will never/Pass into nothingness, but still will keep /A bower quiet for us, and a sleep/Full of sweet dreams, and health, and quiet breathing” to Lord Byron’s “She Walks in Beauty” who spoke of her “eyes” likened to “starry skies”. Even the eastern concept of beauty has nothing to do with the physical aspect but rather on one’s ability to appreciate as Confucius would put it “Everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it.” Indeed being thin is not a universal standard of beauty but rather an invented concept of business and the West. It is because, in societies .where commerce has not yet penetrated, the standard of beauty differs from those in the West. . .
