Considering the language used to describe her poetry; “ill-formed” “irksome” she must have written this poem in a moment of sadness and even anger. When she heard about how her poems were received, she was probably
(Dickinson 8) from the beating of the drums, and she felt people “creak across my Soul” (Dickinson 10) which implies a painful and uncomfortable experience. Goldfarb argues the speaker moves “into a new realm of perception,” Moran asserts she loses her sanity throughout the poem and Pineiro reasons the speaker passes into an endless world after death. When analyzing Emily Dickinson’s “I felt a Funeral, in my Brain,” critics acknowledge something dies, but many differences are present, and the extent to which their theories diverge demonstrates the power of diction to create complexity. The way in which a critic interprets the first line develops the interpretations of the rest of the poem and the differences in the topic among the analysts prove the power of diction to create intricacy. Although Goldfarb and Moran both interpret the first line as a metaphor, the
It never reveals where he truly was when he supposes to be on the train. Chopin only suggest that Louise was unhappy and her husband was to blame. She loves him sometimes, but not enough to be too sad if he was dead. Brently stands in the door when his sister in law discovers his wife and never know how he feels about his wife death. The Story of an Hour suggests that Louise is unhappy in the marriage, and is relief when he is dead, while Jim Mather is upset that he did nothing to save his wife from collapsing on the streetcar in Hot and Cold
First of all, the power that close family holds creates fear inside of Rosina when she thinks her father is lying to her. When Thomas Wentworth, Rosina’s father, calls her to his office, he tells her “”Your sister is dead, as she deserved. There will be no mourning, and no further mention of her. You may go.” His look said, as clearly as if he spoken, “Disobey me, and the same may happen to you.”
Rather than caring about Montag who was about to be killed for having books, she is more worried about her walls and her ‘family’ being burned. Bradbury uses techniques such as repetition, extended sentences, and a distraught tone of voice to establish Mildred’s unhappiness. Ultimately, Ray Bradbury adequately examines the recurring theme of the repression of authentic human relationships through his use of extensive literary
To me, both stories are very similar; tales where the “blind” husband is made a cuckold of by one of his close friends. The reason why the Wife of Bath’s prologue is last is because she seems so unhappy. The fact that her tale was about her wishes, proves that she is not content with her life. She has yet to be loved as more than just a pretty face or a wealthy noble. This tale is known for the “Dorigen’s Complaint,” where she talks about all of the women through history who have killed themselves when in a position where they might lose honor.
“The Story of an Hour” is a great short story written by Kate Chopin in 1894. This story is full of ups, downs, and surprises that keep the reader on the edge of their seat. Chopin begins the story by introducing the main character Mrs. Mallard, who upon learning that her husband has been killed in a tragic railroad accident does not respond the way the reader anticipates. Instead of trying to process what has happened, or even denying it, Mrs. Mallard immediately begins crying hysterically. After a few minutes she decides that she needs to be alone.
Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz, a self-taught philosopher, poet and forward thinker, wrote many empowering poems that captured how she felt during the time she was living in. Two of which “Foolish Men” and “On her Portrait” express how she didn’t like the stereotypical roles women were put in during her life. These poems show true anguish and express a slight distain for men. In the poem “Foolish Men” Cruz starts off by explaining how men are so quick to blame women for their ailments but in actuality it is themselves causing them.
The sound of “h”, “r”, and “d” gives this poem a more hateful and negative tone, because it represents her anger. Words like “hard his heart’s” (WL 43), “bitter with briars” (WL 31), “rocky, rimed” (WL 48), and “dreary, drenched” (WL 49) are used near the end of The Wife’s Lament to show her anger towards her
Emily from “A Rose for Emily,” is oppressed by her father who passed away. Faulkners writes, “We did not say she was crazy then. We believed she had to do that. We remembered all the young men her father had driven away, and we knew that with nothing left, she would have to cling to that which had robbed her, as people will” (Page 4). In the short story, Emily’s father is proven to have been oppressive to her after running off every young gentleman that came around looking to court Miss.
One strong emotional reaction is when Aibileen always mentions something about her past like with her ex-husband, Clyde and her deceased son, Treelore. It’s sad when you keep on remembering your loved ones dying and leaving you. Another strong emotion I had was when every time the maids were discriminated against. It’s not fair that just because of your color that you have to be made fun of. My last strong reaction in the book in my opinion is when the maids get fired.
