Where the tree 's nearly almost had no leaves covering their, thin scraggly branches. Each of them he discovered looked like twisted and grotesque fingers. The once bright blue sunny sky above them had suddenly turned dark, and quite dusky, while the air around them was strangely quiet. It hung with a very unnerving and uneasy silence. The darkness had formed into a thick mist, that seemed to
Sister James is worried about his odd behaviors and she states: “He look frightened and … he put his head on the desk in the most peculiar way. And one other thing. I think there was alcohol on his breath” (Shanley 22). From this, the idea of Donald being raped is born, yet it was created with no distinct evidence. Secondly, Sister Aloysius even announces that she has no evidence.
For example on page 91 where it states, “Look out now, you’ll mess it up.” She jerked her head sideways, and Lennie’s fingers closed on her hair and hung on. “Let go,” she cried. “You let go!” Lennie obviously has a hard time comprehending no and it leads him to be frightened and do something he’ll later regret. Overall Lennie’s loneliness is caused by his lack of understanding which leads to disastrous
Annie Wilkes' "unique" point of view about the world around her effects her personality and Paul. The way that Annie seems to freeze up and become catatonic is one of the main reasons for the reader's and Paul's horror. On page 12 Paul describes the way Annie changes as such, "the black nothing of a crevasse folded into an alpine meadow, a blackness where no flowers grew." From that point on the narrator's fear of Annie escalated to a new level. Later on in the book, Annie becomes very casually terrifying, as if it were natural for her.
Some of the soldiers were dressed in rags (Powell 149). The soldiers had so few clothes that they dressed in rags. The clothes were in such bad condition that they could be seen through (Waldo 151). You need thick clothing when you are out in the snow. The Army does not have enough clothing.
Lizabeth tells the reader "Then I lost my head entirely, mad with the power of inciting such rage, and ran out of the bushes in the storm of pebbles, straight toward Miss Lottie, chanting madly, "Old witch fell in a ditch, picked up a penny and though she was rich," (3). Lizabeth proves herself to be very out-there. Furthermore, Lizabeth refers to herself indirectly as "the zoo-bred
The irony in her hat being destroyed shows that she is no longer considered to be a “lady.” Also, the imagery in the story is very easy to see and hear. Charlotte Perkins Gilman’s story “The Yellow Wallpaper” shows its symbolism in the wall paper that the narrator’s room is surrounded by. The narrator, who seems to be suffering from some kind of depression, is absolutely appalled by the yellow colored wallpaper that surrounds the room by stating, “I never saw a worse paper in my life. One of those sprawling flamboyant patterns committing every artistic sin.” (381) Her constant mention of hating the wallpaper seems like it becomes an odd obsession for the narrator. The woman who she is seeing
A quote that shows this is deep in the darkness peering, long I stood there wondering fearing, doubting, dreaming dreams no mortal ever dared to dream before.” this shows how Poe is disconnected from reality and is mentally unstable because his mind produces a delusional version actuality. Another quote from “Dr.Jekyll and Mr.Hyde” is, “I saw two figures: one a little man who was stumping eastward at a good walk, and the other a girl of eight or ten who was running as hard as she was able down a cross street...for the man trampled over the girl 's body.” These quotes show how both characters are insane,which is a common factor that connects these two stories. This shows how the the stories are alike from insanity, which is shown in the theme of problems can manifest into other things (insanity in the case of these
With seemingly unimportant phrases Ellison further develops the man’s mental instability. The idea of his insanity is again induced when the narrator tells the audience that the man “had seen the picture three times,” (251). This a bizarre statement so casually thrown into the passage, but holds a significant amount of importance in characterization. Lastly, the man laughs when the woman is shown on screen “tied to a bed, her legs and arms spread wide, and her clothing torn to rags,” (251). The actions the man makes are out of place.
He is so used to these walls, and so scared of the outside world where he’d rather kill his friend and stay in the prison than go out into the world. “These walls are funny. First, you hate ‘em, then you get used to ‘em. Enough time passes, you get so you depend on them. That’s institutionalized.” [Red, The Shawshank Redemption].
Just like that, the creature ran off awkwardly, carrying that poor girl’s body between its sharp teeth. He stood a moment in shock, hardly believing what he saw. He kept trying to tell himself it was all just an illusion. He couldn’t tell anyone what it was he had seen. They’d think he was crazy for sure.
