Although the content of the poems is totally different they still share the same theme of perseverance. Soto’s poem is about a working man who made poor choices in life, but strides to make a difference for his son’s and Fost’s poem displays the changes among seasons and how after a stormy season things are restored. Through the usage of symbolism, setting, and imagery both authors convey the message that through hard work and perseverance everything is worth the struggle. The crippled hands of the cotton field worker that are shaped like binoculars symbolize how the choices we make can affect our future.
In Into the Wild, Chris McCandless, a young man who left his family, took on a new name, and ventured out into the wild in Alaska, to find his meaning of life, wrote a letter to Ronald Franz, someone he had met on his journey. “You are wrong if you think Joy emanates only or principally from human relationships … Astonishingly, the eighty - one - year - old man took the brash twenty - four - year - old vagabond’s advice to heart” (Krakauer, 57-58). McCandless was telling Ron to have an adventure, to experience life without too many materialistic things, and to enjoy life simply and as it is. Ron was influenced to hit the road due to Chris’s character, the way he had lived life, and through the advice he constantly told him. While in South Dakota, McCandless wrote to Ron “If you want to get more out of life, Ron, you must lose your inclination for monotonous security and adopt a helter - skelter style of life that will at first appear to you to be crazy.
Equality 7-2521 expresses that he wanted his freedom from this society. They feel that collectivism is pressing on their opportunity to prosper. For example, Equality 7-2521 could not live under the collectivism because he wanted to introduce his new invention. In this situation, rational egoism is a cure of collectivism. Rational egoism promotes the idea of newer ideas, and gives individuals the opportunity to think outside of the
Mary Oliver’s poem “Crossing the Swamp” shows three different stages in the speaker's life, and uses personification, imagery and metaphor to show how their relationship with the swamp changed overtime. The swamp is personified, and imagery is used to show how frightening the swamp appears before transitioning to the struggle through the swamp and ending with the speaker feeling a sense of renewal after making it so far into the swamp. Finally, metaphor is used to compare the speaker, who has experienced many difficulties to an old tree who has finally begun to grow. Mary Oliver uses the literary element of personification to illustrate the speaker and the swamp’s relationship. She portrays the swamp as alive in lines 4-8 “ the nugget of dense sap, branching/ vines, the dark burred/ faintly belching/ bogs.”
To begin, The Catcher in the Rye relates to Holden’s ideas about life how children should have innocence and that society is vulgar and corrupted. He believes that if you stay the same way (possibly innocent or untouched), the world would be better. “The best thing, though, in that museum was that everything always stayed right where it was. Nobody'd move. You could go there a hundred thousand times, and that Eskimo would still be just finished catching those two fish, the birds would still be on their way south… Nobody’d be different.

The combination of individualism found in the division of labor and the use of reason found in the effort to stay on task contribute to the enlightened characteristics of the passage. Specialization and everyone at the garden doing “something useful” (Voltaire 79) avoids possible “misuse of [one’s] natural gifts … the fetter of an everlasting immaturity,” which inhibits mankind from enlightenment (Kant 58). The passage describes each character embracing their freedom to use reason through unique skill sets. No longer are they unwillingly taking part in undesired occupations or
The final example of Racism playing an impacting role in Maycomb is how Calpurnia was treated in general. ‘“....Lula stopped, but she said “ you ain’t got no business bringin’ white chillun here, they got their church, we got our’n. It is our church, ain’t it Miss Cal?”’ ( pg.198 chapter 12) She is saying and supporting that black people and white people should be segregated and shaming Cal for bringing them to a black people church. ‘“... And don’t try getting around it.
The Garden of Eden story in the book of Genesis indicates that humans pursue perfection, are easily manipulated, and are feckless. One of the illustrative human nature is the pursuit of perfection.

However, according to Elizabeth Bird’s review, even evoking a strong feeling is missing in Cooper’s narrative, “when Little Hawk returns to his village, you feel mildly bad for him but hardly crushed. You didn’t know these people […] they didn’t feel enough like people to you. So where’s the outrage? Where’s the anger?”. Historical representations aside, the lack of appropriate emotion and the lack of humanity in the characters renders them two-dimensional.
Edwards uses a harsh tone for readers to face the reality of what the consequences would be for not following the life a Puritan should be living. An example of this reality from his sermon, “ there is hell’s wide gaping mouth. ”(Edwards, 80) God has all the power of choosing what he wants to do with you and saying it’s as if he’s holding you above Hell getting ready to drop you without hesitation. Bradstreet uses a calmer tone in her poem, “Yet by His gift is made thine own; there’s wealth enough, I need no more. ”(Bradstreet, 70)
All stories illustrate the beginning, with value and insight; indigenous knowledge is innately given. In an indigenous worldview, knowledge comes from the creator and from creation itself.
