Not to mention how the entirety of the title is a metaphor, little additions and comparisons strategically placed by Hawthorn expose readers to the much deeper meaning to each of the scenes. It is amazing to see Hawthorne’s ability to use metaphor in beautiful ways, such as comparing children to flowers, as well as dark serious ways, such as Chillingworth’s resemblance to Satan. As previously mentioned, there is high importance placed on the underlying meanings of the natural world within the novel. Comparisons to season such as Spring represent growth and plentifulness all while Hawthorne is not afraid to represent suffering and death through relation to the decay or a garden once abandoned. It is common for Hawthorne to use people on the other ends of a metaphor in order to give insight into their true personalities.
We see here that Muir is using positive connotations, first word is rare, which could be taken bad I suppose but it is used in the same sentence as beautiful,”most beautiful” at that. By these words here, Muir is trying to describe the plant to us in a way that we would think just as he did, in awe and taken back in the beauty. Muir uses “bewildering” and “discouraging” which are both negitive connotations, The diction he chose was correct, after his journey he was tired discourage and most definantly at
“The Lord our God is merciful and forgiving, even though we have rebelled against him”, Daniel 9:9. In the Scarlet Letter, Nathaniel Hawthorne portrays Hester Prynne as a kind, strong, and humble character. Although as Hester sins, this does not define her as a person or take away from her value as a person. Hester is a humble person throughout the entire book because she is always caring nice and honest. As Hester is appointed for adultery and admits to it, she is completely honest and doesn’t lie and straight forward with the townspeople.

We are all very different and our neighborhoods are as well, but that ability to stand against adversity, our friendliness no matter the stratum, and that skill to enjoy life against all odds is what really compose that Magical Realism foreigners love so much about our city. Getting to know Cartageneros and their stories would really complement a traveler’s experience and leave not only with the memories of a beautiful place but also plenty of life
A common strength between the two mythological love stories is the use of symbolism to support the overall meaning of loyalty in love. In Baucis and Philemon, the symbol that most supports loyalty is the ramshackle home filled with warmth and joy. Baucis says to her visiting guests, “‘We are poor folk,’ she said, ‘but poverty isn’t so bad when you’re willing to own up to it, and a contented spirit is a great help too.’” This quote contributes to the author’s strength in the use of symbolism in that it effectively shows that even in their old age and poor economic condition, they are still devoted to each other and their home as seen in their cozy hearth and uplifted spirits. Similarly, in the love story Orpheus and Eurydice, Orpheus’ journey
Evil. The wild rose bush embodies beauty and pain and Hester’s Cabin represents the in between of good and evil. Pearl exemplifies how she was created and how it affected her and those who loved her. Each symbol connects itself to the theme of Good vs. Evil through the details of their deeper
“Whenever you’re in conflict with someone, there is one factor that can make the difference between damaging your relationship and deepening it. That factor is attitude.” William James explains that positive attitude can help in many situations. In “The diary of Anne Frank” by Anne Frank, she keeps her head held high in the Annex and has a positive attitude. A letter from “Dear Ms. Breed” by Louise Ogawa, has a similar response.
To be a considered a natural condition, it must remain its natural state—despite the movement or relocation. Norton v. Black, 469 P.2D 102. For example, in Norton, a young boy was injured while playing on a hedge that was planted by property owners. Id. 102. The court held that the hedge was natural.
He was drawn to the most dramatic sides of nature, such as waterfalls, chasms, holes, storms, the fury of weather, and the balance of light and dark. Nature’s life cycles became a metaphor to him for the human condition. All of his paintings are meant to tell stories about life and nature. He captured the sense of wilderness and the power of land that hasn’t been explored by humans. He loved nature and cared deeply for the health of the environment, not wanting negative consequences for the landscapes he painted.
The ethnographies of Zora Neale Hurstson's Of Mules and Men and that of the Clifford Geertz's Balinese Cockfight contrast significantly in their writings. They contrast in that they differ in their ethnographic approach, what or who they are observing and their judgements placed on those they are observing. The narrative voice remains the same between the two Anthropologist's writing but seems to be the only thing. Hurstons's Of Mules and Men made great contributions to African American culture as we know if today. She focusses her ethnography on African American folklore of the time in the 1930s.
