Meaning: Acceptance of being emotional and crazy from traumatic experiences. The song is about a character who was just kidnapped by a “Big Bad Wolf” figure and the figure is trying to make the character do things for him. But in return she poisons and kills him and accepts she is crazy and emotional, and insane and is tired of holding everything back from her previous traumatic experiences. In this line of lyric “need my prescription fill,” this is the turning point of her acceptance by saying she needs her pills to not be as insane. The next line of lyric “sing you a lullaby where you die at the end,” is where she is really accepting her insanity and taking back the control in her life.
In conclusion, “A streetcar named Desire” by Tennessee Williams, uses characterization of the main characters to convey theme of the desire and how it can influence and change someone’s personality. Because of the situations and arguments the characters get in, Williams is able show how desperate the characters are to get what they want. Stanley was willing to put his wife and his baby’s lives at risk, only to prove that he was the man of the house. Blanche ruined her chance of getting married because her promiscuous past caught up with her. Tennessee Williams uses his upbringing to show the theme of male versus female in many of his plays and it especially shows in “A streetcar named Desire”.
For example, during the scene when Mia is driving down the street after rehearsing for her play, the song City of Stars plays in the background with a slightly slower rhythm using xylophones. This alternative version of the song sounds like a lullaby, which reflects the dreamy state Mia is in while thinking about her career and relationship with Sebastian, who is always on tour. Mia’s misery is thrown back to me and I can feel myself slowly start to feel sad. The music not only reminds me of the illusory world of La La Land, but also creates an emotional intimacy between me and the characters of the film. This reinforces the idea of how La La Land transports me to their world.
It has been said that the setting of a story shapes its course of events, its narrative and the perspective of its characters. This notion is proven to be true in the play A Streetcar Named Desire by Tennessee Williams. The city of New Orleans, Louisiana provides the perfect backdrop for A Streetcar Named Desire; The home of Mardi Gras, Jazz and Bourbon Street provides a unique blend of old wealth, traditional southern sophistication, and a new immigrant blue collar culture. This blend of different cultures provides the ideal environment for the development of the main character, Blanche Du Bois. Much like Blanche, the once pristine city has fallen onto hard times in the post World War Two world.
The final poem of significance is Jazzonia, in which Hughes experiments with literary form to transform the act of listening to jazz into an ahistorical and biblical act. Neglecting form, it is easy to interpret the poem shallowly as a simple depiction of a night-out in a cabaret with jazz whipping people into a jovial frenzy of singing and dancing. But, the poem possesses more depth, when you immerse yourself in the literary form. The first aspect of form to interrogate is the couplet Hughes thrice repeats: “Oh, silver tree!/Oh, shining rivers of the soul!” Here, we see the first transformation. The “silver tree” alludes to an instrument used to perform jazz (probably a saxophone).
The supernatural is referring to all the unusual events that take place. In Jane Eyre, we have some incidents of that sort. For example when she thought that her uncle came to revenge her because Mrs. Reed did not treated her well, the thought that Gytrash was approaching to her, when the gypsy predicted her future and described her personality, when the chestnut tree, under which Mr. Rochester and Jane proclaimed their love was struck by lightning, the moment when she had a premonitory dream right before her wedding, or when, when she heard Mr. Rochester calling for her. Being imprisoned in the Reed Room, her childish mind made her perceiving the things around her in a supernatural perspective. The streak of light that stopped on her head made her think of Mr. Reed`s spirit who, awaken by her suffering, came to avenge his niece.
Not only are the interactions between the characters identical, the notes of Beethoven’s sonata also reflect the notes in Mozart’s. The two pieces begin with a forte C minor chord, establishing the bold and powerful tone of the first character. The notes of the first two measures are meant to jump from one to the next with a strong, downward motion on the piano keys. This kind of motion creates the anger that can be heard in the music. Continuing on, the phrase builds up to an E flat, followed by filler rests that set the stage for the second character to enter.
Explore the relationships/love presented in A1S1: In act one scene one, which is the opening of the play, Shakespeare firstly presented Lysander and Hermia as forbidden lovers. Hermia was just told that if she disobeys her father’s orders to marry Demetrius she can get killed and Hermia answers Lysander’s question: “Belike for want of rain, which I could well Beteem them from the tempest of my eyes.” the metaphor “rain” suggests her tears are like rain, she is crying so hard that her tears flowed like rain; this means that she is very melancholy that she couldn’t marry the love of her life, Lysander. Additionally it might also be shocking and weird for the audience back in the Elizabethan era, because they were living in a Patriarchal society, and that if you don’t obey your father you can die; because Hermia isn’t like the other women characters
In the play Romeo and Juliet, William Shakespeare’s use of stylized language promotes a deeper understanding of Juliet’s struggle with her conflicting feelings for Romeo. Specifically, she shows her adversity through her monologue of paradox. In this scene, her nurse confesses to Juliet that Romeo, her beloved husband, has killed Tybalt, her kinsman. This leaves Juliet conflicted; she doesn’t know what to do, how to act, or who to choose. This passage is important because it not only shows that Juliet is confused about her feelings for Romeo, but also that she feels as though she is a victim of deceit, and for one fleeting moment, is unsure of whether or not she can trust him.
