I really like the way she describes the wood. She could have said covered or frosted but she chooses caked. This is where her husband enters the poem. “His back in a snug plaid shirt”(16) is describing how she sees her husband. We can also see a change in the tone of the poem as well.
Now the fun part, the analyst of The Shawshank Redemption’s use of light and color in painting the picture of its theme of hope. “Studies show that some people in northern climates are subject to severe depression in winter if they receive too little light. The importance of lighting in filming is suggested by the word photography, which literally means ‘writing with light’(page 70).”
Change and loss are inevitable Compare and contrast the ways in which change and loss are presented in ‘A Streetcar Named Desire’ and Carol Ann Duffy’s poetry collection ‘Mean Time’ Both Williams- in ‘A Streetcar Named Desire’- and Duffy – in ‘Mean Time’- present change and loss as central, complex ideas. The consternation of change is an intrinsic human fear, as demonstrated by characters in both works of literature. Setting, characterization and allegory are just some of the ways they present relatable characters who cower in the face of change. Another ineluctable element of life is loss; both Duffy and Williams understand this, intelligently indicating this using a variety of poetic and dramatic techniques. Throughout the play, Williams
Miller says in the stage directions, “He is not quite pleased.” He also shows the relationship to be both harsh and cold on both sides. “It is winter in here yet.” John makes a comment about lilacs to Elizabeth as she promises to bring some flowers into the house. “Lilacs have a purple smell. Lilac is the smell of nightfall, I think.” Purple lilacs have a symbolism of the feelings in early love. John wants to bring back those feelings of love.
In “Trees at the Arctic Circle,” Purdy discusses his opinion on the short trees that grow in the far north. He uses simpler language and creates meaning through direct adn forceful phrases like “I am angry to see them / like this / not proud of what they are” (Purdy, 9 - 11), whereas in “Arctic Rhododendrons,” he uses descriptive language to convey his point. I prefer “Arctic Rhododendrons” over “Trees at the Arctic Circle” because of its illustrative and very visual descriptions, as well as the personal addition at the closure. I appreciate “Trees at the Arctic Circle” for its statements and realizations towards the ending, but favour “Arctic Rhododendrons” for its subject matter and many uses of poetic
Repeating statements reveal the intention and heaviness of the words repeated. Mood depicts the emotions of the story. The weather and environment of the story control the mood. In the short story by Raymond Carver in “Popular Mechanics” magazine, the weather is present to affect the mood of the story. The melting snow signifies the melting away of their love for each other.
Since it did both that tells us as peers, he is in a dangerous environment where he shouldn’t travel alone. Since the protagonist subconscious mind fails to get an understanding how easy it is to freeze to death in the conditions he is in. He continues to go further down his menacing path to failure. Due to his lack of imagination, the character will not recognize how much of a threat nature will be as he dig deeper down his path. Since he fails at recognizing the strength of nature almost in a disrespectful manner, its treacherous force will soon hit him hard.
In ‘When we two parted’, the phrase “the dew of the morning felt chill on my brow-it felt like a warning of what I feel now”, uses natural imagery and foreshadowing to show that the “dew” was like a cold sweat, an omen of suffering o follow. Moreover, “dew” could also symbolise Mother Nature’s tears as she too felt misery as she watched their relationship come to a parting. Furthermore, “dew” could also symbolise the start of coldness as their relationship went on, reflecting a premonition of death. This is a typical description of Byron, as since he was a major figure in the romantic period, uses of overtly emotional natural imagery was especially
From Blake’s perspective, a passage through experience is necessary before entrance into a final state of vision, as it describes a journey from childhood innocence to maturity. In contrast to the omniscient narrator in the first poem, this poem uses the first-person singular ‘I’, indicating that he is now able to reflect deeply on his situation. The poem begins with the narrator amidst ‘a little black thing among the snow’, juxtaposing the experience of misery against the purity and whiteness of the snow. This stanza presents a self-contained introduction of the child’s plight, combined with monosyllabic phrases following the ABAB rhyme scheme which changes thereafter to an alternate rhyme scheme. Within this stanza, the conversation between the speaker and a sweeper establishes a slower, reflective pace and
Adversity draws men together and produces beauty and harmony in life’s relationships, just as the cold of winter produces ice-flower on the window- panes, which vanish with the warmth. (Soren Kierkgaard) Vikram Seth’s first novel, The Golden Gate(1986) is a survey of contemporary love relationships in an urban society and the search for harmony with or without love relationships when situations are adverse. Love and survival are the central themes in Vikram Seth’s novels. The present chapter focuses on TGG, which is a novel written in verse form with rigid sonnet parameter. This is a very daring work, considering the fact that poetry is usually written in free verse today and drama has been written in blank verse, but the said novel has been written in iambic tetrameter.
