This text suggests, if hardships come in your way, learn from them because pains strengthen and encourage us in the time of sorrows. Accepting adversity, helps you overcome it. “One who has never tasted what is bitter does not know what is sweet”. We cannot appreciate joy in our lives without a measure of sadness. Adversity puts people in undesirable
Instead of a pen it is our actions and instead of the ink on paper it's our words. Cesar uses a mixture of Personification, Irony, and Antitheses to prove and justify his point about non violence being the solution to life's problems. Chavez’s uses of Personification such as the use of it within the sentence “ This observance of Dr. King’s death gives us the best possible opportunity to recall the principles with which our struggle has grown and matured.” helps us to better grasp what he is talking about by giving it a human trait that we can relate to. In another sentence Cesar says “ The burdens of generations of poverty and powerlessness lie heavy in the fields of America.” describing the problems we have within every

How then am I mad? Hearken! and observe how healthily, how calmly, I can tell you the whole story.” To put simply, the main character through using hyperbole to show that his senses have increased sharply. we see that through denial of his guilt we see that his refusal to accept his problems result him into ultimately revealing his plans. While one story adresses the thematic topic of guilt, in “I Can Stand Him No Longer” Poe Writes, “How could it be that they did not know,How the fires of hate made me glow?Through my guilt, my secret would not remain concealed,A heavy conscience will always make what’s hidden revealed.”Through rhyme scheme, it differs from the first one showing that the narrator knew himself to be mad but rather revealed himself thinking that people already knew.
For example, Smith’s personal feelings are further seen in his statement saying “Supporting another’s self-destruction … sends an unintentional but clear message to the person: Yes, your life is no longer worth living; you are a burden; you are better off dead (and we’re better off with you dead, too)” (Smith 8). Smith is basically and obviously testing the reader’s soft-heartedness with this statement by suggesting that one might think this at one point in the chaos of your loved one being sick. It strongly shows that making the best and most accurate choice of care after being done with treatments, that are not working any longer, is critical. Even though Smith disagrees with the care choice that Caplan suggests and thinks there are plenty of better options, Smith is still respectful towards Caplan and doesn’t bash him for his views. Smith suggests and believes in giving terminally ill patients both hope and the care of Hospice.
In Frank Furedi’s reading, “Our Unhealthy Obsession with Sickness”, he concludes that the health care crisis which we are going through will not change nor get better. To some extent I agree with Mr. Furedi’s writing. He discusses how in recent times, people in society are normalizing having an illness and are willingly open to talking about them (471). Furedi also mentioned how people now embrace having an illness, rather than noticing their worth before they were sick. I too have noticed that it is becoming increasingly acceptable to the extent that people want something to be wrong with them, which I find extremely odd.
Beckett’s drama is based on his perception of human condition, that is, being born and mostly living in pain, suffering ordeals, a short rough and unpleasant existence. Man’s needs and desires are all reduced. Therefore, “All Beckett’s work comprises a unity in which certain attitudes are expressed in different ways with much force and rare imagination: life is cruel and painful; failure is no worse than success because neither matters; what is important is to avoid giving pain to others and to share misfortune”, there is neither a meaning nor an explanation; there is and there remains only nothingness, thereby putting Beckett closer to existentialist beliefs which puts him close to the Existentialists. Life and its meaning gets reduced to cruelty, frustration and absence of hope revolving around the repetitive themes of birth, death and emo-tions like despair, anxiety and physical limitations. The reader is insistently and rather forcefully reminded that his existence is
A broken dream is a very emotional experience no matter how one reacts to it, and Hughes demonstrates this with his various analogies. The life of an individual revolves around their passions, goals, and dreams. When these are taken away from one, they will experience great pain. This experience is a commonality amongst all people who had the courage to pursue something important. The theme of this poem is that loss and denial are part of the human experience and effect everyone differently.
That being said, it is ignorant to say that his fatal flaw is the sole reason for his downfall, as there were many contributing factors such as his jealousy and insecurity that factored into it. Nevertheless, his gullibility is ultimately the root cause as it enabled for these factors to come into effect. His fatal flaw is first pointed out by Iago, who comments that “The Moor is of a free and open nature/ That thinks men honest that but seem to be so” (1.3, 392-393). As the play progresses, Iago capitalizes on this weakness to plant seeds of doubt in his mind of Desdemona. Iago points out that “[Desdemona] did deceive her father, marrying you” (3.3,204), and thus brings to Othello’s attention that Desdemona is capable of lying.
Change is a major theme throughout Brave New World and like many other literary themes is most prominently displayed by Bernard Marx. At the beginning of the story he was an intelligent, sad, and flawed character that had many faults in his personality. These faults manifested themselves as extreme jealousy and suspicion of everyone around him as shown when he thought, “That horrible Benito Hoover!” even though he acknowledged he was meaning well, “And yet the man had meant well enough.” (Huxley 4). These character flaws leave many holes in his psyche that allow for a corruption of his base personality. On the other hand, Bernard has a very admirable trait in his ability to see beauty where others cannot such as when he and Lenina were flying
It’s a deeply emotion read for me, that has had me all choked up. In each chapter, all of the emotions are heightened and are always tangible. Hothouse Flower is about guilt, pain, misery, grief, forgiveness, discovering yourself, the power of friendship, family, and relationship and, most importantly, love. We lived in this story. One way or another this story has something that will touch your heart.
The literary criticism I chose for the Heart of Darkness focuses on how is “easier to give good advice than to take it.” This criticism was written by Theodore Dalrymple, who is a doctor and provided an example of how he would prescribed his patients an act that they should do to improve their life and they would nod and say they would. At first, one believes they would take measures, but they would not. This he related to this book by demonstrating that is difficult to change individuals but it more difficult to change nations and even more cultures. Darkness (and light) is the main motif and he tells, not directly, that the characters are stuck in the darkness. In their setting and how hard it will be to change the minds of individuals
His letter to his mother allows every audience member to think back on personal conflicts they may have had when it came to disappointing someone close to them. The detailed sadness and attempts to better/correct himself, puts the reader in a state of sympathy towards the author, allowing them to feel what he had gone through and effectively immersing them in the article. This use of Pathos benefits him as he effectively reaches his audience on a personal and emotional level, reminding them that though everyone is different, we are all still humans. Kefalas makes an effort to blend these emotions with his argument, making an attempt to win over his audience and bring them to his side. This effective strategy aims straight at the hearts of the readers as he/she must question if what they recently believed in, is truly humane and justified.
