(Interviewee 7) Indeed, proclaiming that “K-pop stars do not imitate the U.S. pop stars” demonstrates their two different standards judging the U.S. pop and K-pop. While the interviews read the U.S. pop star images only with the images, they interpret K-pop star images with diverse contexts, such as who is the most influential figure to a singer or what kind of different images a singer shows in other TV shows. Unintentionally they ignore amplification of voyeuristic sex appeal images in K-pop stars. In doing so, their attempt to challenge the dominant discourses of sexism goes to
Throughout Frankenstein, Shelley uses Victor to warn the reader of the dangers of aspiring to godliness, and the consequences one faces in the aftermath doing so, even going as far as to compare Victor to Satan, tempting the crew of Walton’s ship, in the book’s final pages. The Victor Shelley creates is very similar to the Satan created by Milton in his book, Paradise Lost, which explores the biblical tale of Adam and Eve. In Frankenstein, Victor speaks of his desire to create the Creature, saying, “I deemed it criminal to throw away in useless grief those talents that might be useful to my fellow-creatures.” (152). Shelley’s diction choices, such as the word “useless” exemplify Victor’s excessive hubris, portraying him as a man who creates his Creature for, in his mind, the good of society.

One definition of an epic hero is that the protagonist must go on a journey where he learns something about himself and the world. Satan volunteers to go on this journey to Eden. As soon as he volunteers, the other demons worship him and praise him for his courage. Milton describes this scene by writing, “At once was as the sound of Thunder heard remote. Towards him they bend with awful reverence prone,”(2, 476-478).
The title of the book Lord of the Flies can translate to Beelzebub, which in Greek means devil. “the beast is seen as something external. Even in the next chapter the dead airman is seen as the beast - a beast from a dying world. But gradually the beast is internalized.
As Louis L. Martz dictates in his piece titled, “Paradise Lost: The Realms of Light,” Satan’s descent into Hell, following banishment from Heaven, catalyzes the entrance of light and dark imagery into the novel. Satan, now barred from the, “happy Realms of Light,” recognizes his separation from his former alliance with the divine essence (qtd in Martz 72.) In his brief period of grief, Satan finds himself struggling towards the light that radiates from Heaven, signaling the presence of innate light still within the fallen being. However, this light soon becomes squandered when Satan finds it, “better to reign in Hell, than serve in Heaven,” (1.263) In his decision, the prevalence of darkness within Hell increases and eventually seeps into the secular realms created by God.
The speaker creates an impression that denotes a sign of urgency by repeating the word “wind” through the poem. The entry of sin, fall of man, and the ultimate sacrifice by Jesus followed urgent decisions and risks equated to the pattern of wind. For instance, the description of the decay of a farmhouse in the first stanza ricochets the prophetic description of Jerusalem just before the destruction and the second advent as recounted by Christ. The narrator also uses imagery in some of the phrases in the initial stanza to create a clear message of sin and redemption. Exemplified by, the use of “knifing in the wounds” (I, 15) and “whipping the shoulders worry-bowed too soon" (I, 13) which pointed to the painful death of Christ through crucifixion.
For instance, a sentence such as “Love bled from him,” could be considered an allusion to the crucifixion of Jesus Christ for our sins. Likewise, words and phrases such as resurrection and silver coins also allude to historical, biblical events. Allusions such as these hint to other works and add greater depth to your story. Imagery underlines your theme with visual representation. The mockingly pin in The Hunger Games serves as imagery suggesting Katniss, like the mockingly, is a creature the Capitol never wanted to exist.
Assertion 4: In Hamlet, it is clear that Shakespeare presents the reader with the supernatural beings of God and Angels. A big part of Hamlet’s actions were purely based on the Catholic beliefs which were instilled in the society which he was apart of. Even though Hamlet often had conflicting views in regards to his religious beliefs and morality views, his Christian beliefs guided him through his plans for revenge against Claudius and his decisions about his life. In Hamlet’s contemplation on whether he should end his life or not he states, “Oh, that this too, too sullied flesh would melt, Thaw, and resolve itself into a dew, Or that the Everlasting had not fix 'd, His canon 'gainst self-slaughter! O God, God!

Islam and Christianity share similar ideas as the abstract religion in the coming of age novel “Bless Me, Ultima” by Rudolfo Anaya. Islam and magic each have stigmas connected to them from personal assumptions. Pagan beliefs in the novel and Christianity share the same concept of afterlife and symbolism. Magic and Islam are falsely accused of being malevolent in nature due to society using the religions for hate crimes.

In fact, Bradford uses Biblical allusion to the new world. For example, in his poem named “A Word to New Plymouth” he mentions, “the truce expired, and wars begun. But then a place God did provide...” By saying that, he means that there has to be wars, then God will provide a place for them just like the Bible says. Bradford also uses diction.
