The Stranger written by Albert Camus, gives the reader an insight in the life of Meursault and his family and friends, but also has a hidden moral behind it. In “The Stranger”, Camus uses metaphor to describe the relationship between Meursault and his mother. The assumptions people make has a chance of being right or wrong, but Camus uses Salamano and his dog as an extended metaphor to show that even though everyone believed that Meursault did not care about his mother, he in fact he did care about his mother, and it was the same situation with Salamano and his dog. Meursault had an estranged relationship with his mother. They did not have that tender mother-son relationship, because when they lived together they hardly had any communication between them, living completely separate lives while still living in the same house.
In many ways, Candy’s dog plays a significant role in foreshadowing Lennie’s death and the manner of the death itself. Certainly, George has taken responsibly of killing Lennie himself after Candy tells him, “I ought to of shot that dog myself, George. I shouldn’t ought to of let no stranger shoot my dog.” Candy and his dog lead a parallel relationship to that of George and Lennie. Alike Candy’s dog, Lennie depends wholly on George to take care of him. Vice versa, Candy alike George values his old dog not because of its usefulness but as a constant companion, someone who is devoted and loyal to him.
Friendship and misery take part as Candy 's dog follows Candy around but suffers all around, “his ancient dog lifted his head … peered … and then painfully got his feet” (28). Candy 's dog symbolizes the misery of life, and its nature brings from the pleasure of the early days to the desolation of the last remaining days. Misery is seen through Candy’s dog as everyone suffers, from Candy’s broken hand, to Curley’s wife isolation from the men
His compassion for the dog is clearly seen when he noticed the vulnerability of the dog, with “no master to take care of it...ugly and old” yet “squatted down and stroked his head.” (Endo, 2008:73) Here, Endo portrays an image of Gaston lowering himself and comforting the mongrel, which has been shunned away from the society and had “been pelted with rocks.” In the Bible Christ often offers protection and comfort particularly to those who have been rejected by the society, most noticeably the incident with a woman caught in adultery who was at risk of being stoned to death. The dog is used here as a symbolic device that represents the weak, orphaned and the
Van Gogh and the townspeople. Marshall’s Mr. Van Gogh is described as wearing “old fashioned clothes” and a tattered coat “with concealed buttonholes”, his hair is “in tresses”, he also maintain a good personal hygiene. The narrator of the story described his appearance as a “careworn lion”. Therefore, the readers are able to empathize with Mr. Van Gogh due to his stressed and worried appearance, suggesting the readers to think about what happened that causes the worried expression that he wears everyday. The demolition of the old house of Mr. Van Gogh is described as “walls stretched and tore” as if it was made of “fabric”, providing a image of what Mr. Van Gogh house was like during the demolition, adding to the depressed atmosphere.
His subconscious slowly eats away at him, but he does his best to ignore it. His companion dog, Essenc, whom used to frolic as he accompanied Tono everywhere, sits spiritless when Tono comes home. Tono gives the dog a nudge to no avail, and looks up at a piece of rope hanging liking a noose. In this scene the dog explicitly serves as a reflection of Tono’s conscience, and the rope is foreshadowing the death that is to come from Tono’s inaction against the Fascists. Tono fails to assist his friend Imrich, but is conflicted in whether or not he should
In this paragraph, he discusses how people experiences: hitting animals would affect their emotions: the man 's hand-if they really knew the basis of nature. This leaves the audience feeling guilty of their actions because they feel as if their everyday actions, such as driving are negatively affecting these animals everyday lives. Pathos and simile are two literary devices which have the capability of making readers connect Lopezs point of view on nature to their own. By doing this, Lopez leaves the audience feeling guilty because they haven 't been considerate enough to the animals that they
What people don’t see is how wrong their first impression could have been and how much of a struggle it is to keep a common understanding of what the term “negative” means in dog training. Negative dog training used correctly with positive dog training is the best way to have a well behaved and loyal dog. Dog training is an art in a way and not all art is understood, but some techniques work in a more lasting and beneficial way than others. In this case negative dog training has a bad reputation because people hear the term negative and see corrections and immediately think that the method being taught or used is inhumane and needlessly aggressive. One term used way too much for negative do trainers is “choke folks,” because people do not see anything but the rope leash and consider rope leashes to be inhumane.

Another dog, Billee, has a different personality. He is sensitive and pleasant and is stated, “Billee’s one fault was his excessive good nature, while Joe was the very opposite, sour and introspective, with a perpetual snarl and a malignant eye” (London 17-18). Lastly, the central character, Buck works hard to achieve his goal in being lead sleigh dog, and does so, like humans trying to try to accomplish certain objectives. The qualities of each dog such as Spitz, Billee, and Buck are extremely personified, embracing London’s use of the literary
