For example in both Plath 's poems and in Macbeth, the loss of a male figure is made clear. A difference would be that Sylvia Plath was deeply unhappy and disturbed about her appearance and the fact that Lady Macbeth and Macbeth committed a sin. In this essay I will explore these similarities and differences are presented in Plath 's poems and in different productions of Macbeth. Early on in Macbeth we teach that lady Macbeth experience the loss of a father. This is shown when she declares ' had he not resembled my father as he slept, I had done ’t.
Near the end, the sounds of the poem have grown increasingly louder and more menacing as the breakdown of both the mind and death itself creep upon the speaker. “I felt a Funeral, in my Brain” is a poem that presents the impending mental collapse of its speaker, a collapse that Emily relates to the rituals of a funeral to ultimately explore the figurative “death” of the speaker’s

Especially in the case of Tereza, dreams communicate unconscious insecurities and feeling of love, dependence, betrayal, anger and guilt which she might not express. Nightmares haunt Tereza’s sleep, reflecting her body issues and insecurity about Tomas’ adultery. She has become so discontent with her and Tomas’ relationship that she dreams continually of his abandonment and her suicide. Influenced by Tomas’ actions during the day, Tereza 's jealousy is made clear by Kundera’s usage of symbolic
He reads it again, wonders what his family will think, wonders who will tell Mutti. He feels sad for Mutti. He knows his death will be hard on her.” A Lot of quite sad events happened like this in both stories, which built a lot of Tension. Also, we see a flashback of Helmuth dying and saying goodbye to his friends and his family in letters. In “The Devil’s Arithmetic,” on pages 160-161 it says “She stopped as the dark door into Lilith’s Cave opened before them.
By the end of the play, Lady Macbeth felt guilty about her role in the murders. She was having nightmares, regretful thoughts and hallucinations.”“The smell of the blood is still there. All the perfumes of Arabia cannot sweeten this little hand. Oh,oh,oh!” (IV, I,c 175)” Lady Macbeth felt she could not live her life anymore because of what she
Miranda's grief over George's death expresses the great Shakespearean theme of reconciliation that’s associated with “The Tempest.” In both Shakespeare and Naylor’s works, tragic loss occurs in the most painful of situations and although that loss cannot be restored, it’s illustrated in these stories that one can reconcile for the loss that they experienced. In the novel, Mama Day knows that George must do things his way, she expresses emotion for his loss when she "goes inside the coop to look around at the bloody straw, the smashed eggs, and scattered bodies. Now, she has the time to cry"
Text C and Text D present a different tone to communicate their ideas. Text C has a tone of complaint, in wish the author complains about what they feel and how their social class is being oppressed. In the lines seven and eight of the poem the author says, “Everything but Death comes to me and makes me work and give up what I have.” From the title and the first sentence of
Death can be a difficult topic to talk about due to the uncomfortable or ominous feeling that it gives people. This difficulty can also result from inherent fear that humans have of the unknown. We are clueless on what it feels like when your life is slipping away knowing that death is upon you. In Emily Dickinson’s poem, “ I heard a Fly- Buzz when I died”(1862), these unknown emotions are explored through a dying speaker. Dickinson acknowledges different emotional steps someone goes through and summarizes them as grief, acceptance, appreciation, and death using the stanzas.
Use of words like “lead,” “dropped,” “numb,” “plunged,” and “treading” give the poem a heavy, depressing tone. “Wrecked,” “solitary,” “space,” and “strange” further serve to evoke feelings of isolation. Imagery of a migraine comes to mind when envisioning the speaker feeling the beating like a drum, the creak of the floor, treading of feet, and tolling of the bell all within her brain until she is left alone with Silence. In fact, the “beating” in her brain becomes so extreme she feels as though her “[mind] was going numb.” Pain in death does not only comes physically, but mentally as well. “Mourners,” “breaking,” “beating,” “numb,” and “Wrecked” all illustrate the psychological pain the speaker is in during her death.
The first stanza of Emily Dickinson’s poem “I Felt a Funeral, in my Brain” hones in on the noxious idea of Dickinson’s own death, through creating a sad and dark mood. The first line, “I felt a Funeral, in my Brain,” talks about a loss of memories and images in her brain (1). It is as if her thoughts are gone from her mind, the most central and essential part of the body, and she is saying goodbye to them, like a funeral does for a person. Because she is a writer, not being able to express herself through words, which she uses her brain for, would be a nightmare for her. Dickinson’s diction choices, such as “treading” and “sense breaking through” portray an internal fight occurring, with sense finally being the concept to tip her over, making
One strong emotional reaction is when Aibileen always mentions something about her past like with her ex-husband, Clyde and her deceased son, Treelore. It’s sad when you keep on remembering your loved ones dying and leaving you. Another strong emotion I had was when every time the maids were discriminated against. It’s not fair that just because of your color that you have to be made fun of. My last strong reaction in the book in my opinion is when the maids get fired.
