As a consequence of trying to follow the birds that appear on the arras it hits against the ceiling. The impact that it receives is so hard that the bird falls into the ground. When it recovers its breath, it sees the window and tries to reach it because it can see the outside, but it smashed itself. This is related with the society of the time in which it was believed that women did not have any kind of capacity, so they were supposed to write, talk and know about easy topics.

Blanche is fearful of the light because of her traumatic past that she has faced. Her fear of being revealed in the light shows her true nature, manipulative, delusional and malevolent. Tennessee Williams uses the motif of light and dark to explore and delve into the characters of Blanche Dubois, Stanley Kowalski, and Mitchell. The two opposing forces in a streetcar named desire are Light and Darkness. To show this Tennessee Williams brilliantly disguises multiple words with double meanings.
In order to advance the storyline and the personalities of the characters, Kidd incorporates indirect characterization, symbolism, and allusions.

In the song "Liability," by Lorde develops the central conflict by saying she 's a liability and the cause of the relationship ending to show her experience of fame and relationships as a celebrity. Lorde also shows that throughout the song, not everyone has a perfect life with money and fame. Lorde uses a metaphor to describe the challenges of fame. For example, she stated, "He made the big mistake of dancing in my storm, Says it was poison" (Lorde).The word storm is important because it makes you think about a tornado, rain, and damage. Dancing in my storm is representing how challenging their relationship was and how difficult she was.
Also in the film, Miss Lonelyheart begins to commit suicide because she is not happy. In this scene, minimal lighting is used to capture the gloom of the situation. Once she finally finds love, the lighting is very bright to illustrate the happiness she feels.

One way Miss Lonelyheart breaks the mold of the stereotypical is by rejecting the man that made advances on her even though she wanted love.

The other symbol is the next part of the previous one I wrote which is “I’m meaner than my demons, I’m bigger than these bones”, the singer tries to convince herself that she can indeed defeat her inner demons, with this she compares herself to madness, which is why she calls herself a demon, as big as the demon can be, she will always be a harsher and meaner side. But as the song goes she loses this, losing control of her emotions. While this song is bursting with metaphors I shall only explain three at most. One of these metaphors is: “they send me away to find them a fortune, a chest filled with diamonds and
Dove-feathered raven, wolvish-ravening lamb!” (3.2.76-77). Juliet feels conflicted and confused when she finds out that Romeo killed her cousin.
