He shows a twist of emotions , and lacks to show identity. In the poem he says"...True i said "my grandmother" Because if i would have said my mother ypu wouldn't believe a word of it, since a mother should be leading,.." This means that through evry harsh emotion he makes lit of the situation by hiding the pain and hurtness and replacing it with joy, yet he makes you wonder of who the identity he truly is talking about. In the poems We Wear the Mask by Paul Laurence Dunbar and Glass Ceiling by T.R Hummer both have a significant amount of similarities and difference, although there is more similarities between them both.The similarities between both poes is that they both mask their central feelings, they express themselves but they dont want people to know how they really are inside. They wish to keep their feelings anonymous, so they always look happy. The main difference between the two is that one truly shows what they are say and mean what they say but the other poem twists what he says around as if he doesn't know what to
By telling the poem “The Raven “in first person point of view we learn that the narrator is alone Because we hear his thoughts as well as his spoken words we learn of the loss of his beloved, “For the rare and radiant maiden whom the angels name Lenore—“ the poem continues to chronicle the narrators search for the source of the noise. Without the first person point of view the narrators madness and anxiety would not be clear, Poe made it clear that the loss of a loved can create madness that can last forever. In the poem “The Raven,” Edgar Allen Poe uses repetition to builds suspense. The name "Lenore" is used repeatedly. Letting us be aware of the speaker's sense of love.
S. Eliot’s title “The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock ironic is that the woman he speaks of never responds to him anywhere in the poem. This makes it to be the realization of Alfred Prufrock’s loveless life. The failure and breakdown of communication from the other side tell about one aspect, which is the symbol of isolation among humans. The beginning of the poem seems like the speaker is talking to a woman whom he loves. It then turns out to be ironic and against normal expectations of the readers because there is the anticipation of something special to be spoken from the other party as well.
“Lives of the Dead” is a short story written by Tim O'brien. In the story he writes many important life lessons about death and the death of people cared about by the narrator. O’brien writes in a way that makes sense to people and makes people understand a little bit more about what death may be like. Because nobody actually knows what death is like, a lot of people get interested by it, he writes about it in a way that seems like it wouldn’t be scary to be dead as long as the people are remembered. “Lives of the dead” teaches that it’s ok to grieve, because stories can save people and when people are dead there almost dreamlike, it teaches about what it's like to lose a loved one, and it teaches about holding onto hope.
For example, Cauchon and Moore use a formal tone to narrate the story, but at some point, the audience can sense a sad tone when the authors describe the witness' testimonies as the authors did in their paper, "There was no human resemblance whatsoever, Thompson says." A person could easily sense the sadness in that sentence. Likewise, Doyle uses a nostalgic tone as if the couple jumping gave hope to the people who were watching them, but sometimes the tone turns into sadness, a good example of this situation in the text is when the author tells, "Their hands reaching and joining are the most powerful prayer I can imagine." The author seems happy as if knowing that they were holding hands gives the author the hope he needs it to feel better in that moment of darkness. In conclusion, both works have different purposes such as informing like "desperation Forced a horrific Decision" which has more details, has a more formal tone, and the settings are more detailed.
Miss Strangeworth writes these letters because she thinks that by doing so she is protecting her town by warning them about evil things that may be going on. 2.Explain the last line of the Story. In the last line of the story, they are getting back at Miss Strangeworth for all of the letters she has sent over the years. I believe the reason for this is because by writing these letters, she is getting in people's personal space and making assumptions that may not be true. They get back at her by killing her roses and I believe the reason why they chose to kill the roses is because they knew it meant a lot to her since her grandmother planted them and her mom took good care of them.
The poem Bored, written by Margaret Atwood, is telling us both of lost and how boredom can be a good thing than being out of boredom. Thoughout the poem the author talks about how she was bored in the past and wanted nothing more than to no longer be bored. However, once she escaped her boredom it look as if she wanted to be bored again, almost like there was a downside to her no longer being bored anymore. Another point to be made is that when she tells her story, she is also referring to a man being there during her time of boredom, mostly likely a family member of her’s. Then towards the end the poem seems to give the reader a sense of gloom or sorrow with this statement, “Why do I remember it as sunnier / all the time then, altough
“Someone will Remember Us,” holds the hope that even in death, someone will remember and thus those people will be a part of history. However, in Renée Vivien’s translation of the poem, concepts such as, “erotic suffering, obsession, and anxiety” are present. Nonetheless, those negative emotions resulted in “eternal devotion” within the poem (36). Through the translation of Sappho’s poem, Vivien takes on the role of Sappho’s lover, and thus she proves that someone did remember her. Love believes that Sappho and Vivien both represent loneliness and isolation within the poem.
It is sad to know that people did not really realize how beautiful she was until she passed away, but that was only because she was “made up”. Basically saying that she did not look like herself she looked the way society wanted her to be presented. Marge gives us a vivid image of how beautiful she looks in the casket. She does not tell us that she's dead, but because of her use of words one can come to a conclusion. Piercy also adds a little sarcasm in the last line “Consummation at last.
The expectations pinned on her by Jennie, contribute to that narrator's identity.
