They are both men fantasies of living a lavish lifestyle through illegal methods.

Both protagonists, Jordan Belfort from The Wolf of Wallstreet and Henry Hill of The Goodfellas both come from humble beginnings who end up getting exactly what they want.

Maria avoided social relationships which is common in people with panic attack and agoraphobia. But with the lack of information about her fears I would want to dig deeper before diagnosing Maria with agoraphobia. I thought it was interesting that Maria was diagnosed with school phobia as a child. I would want to explore the circumstances and symptoms that led to that
Symbolism In Red Death Symbolism has taken form as an object, person, or situation that can represent a different meaning other than its literal meaning. It can be personal, emotional, physical, mental, memorable, or something with significant importance described to the reader. In many works done by Edgar Allen Poe, he expresses symbolism in his writing to let readers think about the things he included in his stories and what they mean.

Knowing too much can be perilous. It is far better to be naïve - ingenuous and credulous in life rather than being disheartened by the truth. Having a little too much knowledge about the truth sometimes comes with a price of disappointment and disillusionment. The movie, Forrest Gump by Robert Zemeckis is more than just a story of a life saga told by a so-called ‘local idiot’. It portrays the character of Gump who achieves great things in live aided by the bliss of ignorance alongside with other characters such as Jenny and also Lieutenant Dan who in contrast, is disillusioned and discontented by the harsh reality that he goes through.
In my poem I wanted to incorporate some Emily’s main ideas and themes she uses throughout all her poems involving nature, metaphors, similes, and personification.
