The use of repetition and symbolism in “Blink Your Eyes” adds more depth to the poem, and highlights the societal issues that the author and others of his race have felt. Use of repetition in poetry directs the reader 's attention to that word or phrase, as Sundiata does in “Blink Your Eyes.” Along with how the stanzas are formed, the repetition used sets a pace to the poem.
On the date, July 4, 1776, the Declaration of Independence was published by its creator, Thomas Jefferson. The Declaration has multiple topics of what the people want America to represent, such as freedom, rights and human equality.

With the usage of metaphors and repetition, the audience had gained enough attention onto what Jefferson beliefs were.

Through out this semester we have gone through so many readings. The readings were different types of readings. These different types of readings were things such as poems and full on stories. In my perspective all of these readings were all wonderful, the reason why these readings were wonderful is because as you read these poems and stories you get a sense of what the writer is trying to convey. To me I felt like I was in the story or poem because its just the understanding of what the writer is trying to say that made me grow a connection to the story or poem.

There are many themes throughout the novel Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck. One of those themes is the American dream. The American Dream has been I thought in everybody’s mind since America was founded and Steinbeck shows each individual dreams of the characters and how they can be achieved. Some characters dreams are naive and unrealistic, others are achievable. Steinbeck’s themes shows that the dreams in the book that are realistic come true, but the ones that aren’t don’t.
On July 18, 1917, he published his first article in “La Mañana” (the morning) newspaper called “Entusiasmo y Perseverancia” (Enthusiasm and Perseverance) signed by Neftalí Reyes, this was his first publication. One year later, on November 30, the “Corre Vuela de Santiago” magazine, it published this poem “Mis Ojos” (my eyes) which it was inspired by the girl from the letter “I was yours, you were mine. What else? Together we did a bend in the path where love passed” he wrote. By the end of the year, he published thirteen more poems in the same magazine using his pen name Pablo Neruda, the main reason why he did choose that name was that his father did not allow Neftalí to be a poet, that is when he decided to use a pen name.
Gatsby had worked so hard to achieve the American Dream to American Literature was ever changing, but still held the same core principles that were founded from the Colonial Era.

And looking for an American idiom, naturally, it was a help to know that it had been created in a field that I considered light music. Very attractively the whole world recognized it as American, so it must 've been American.” He claimed he “began to consider that jazz rhythms might be the way to make an American-sounding music.”

Next, I went to the ELM site and clicked through three databases then on the fourth one I found a worthy article.

Elie Wiesel has a somber mood in the text ‘Night’. He does this by using imagery and symbolism, Wiesel does this so curiously, as not to plunge into a sad mood, but slowly eases the reader into the despair. The author describes a boy as “angel faced” that slowly moves towards a tragic ending. The angel is a power symbol throughout all cultures, and using that symbol to be placed onto a boy, and expressed through imagery creates a sense of dread and despair. Eliezer depicts a young boy to a “sad faced angel”, in the sense that the boy seems holy, and innocent, yet being in a labor camp, reinforces our idea that the Nazis have no respect for anything good or sacred in the world.
