In this journey, I discover new meanings and different interpretations by just reading one poem that can change one’s perspective multiple times. In John Donne’s “The Flea” can be taken in my different meanings to many people, but no one can figure out what the exact story the author is trying to illustrate. Before reading this poem, I tried to interpret the title
In the book “The Turn of the Screw” the Governess’s interpretation of the unusual events might be based on her fantasy and twisted thought. The governess first encounter with the man was not clearly described rather she brought the description of a man whatever she fantasizes. The irony is her conclusion why that man came for and said ‘it was not for me he had come. He had come for someone else.’31. This indicates that the Governess’s conclusion was baseless.
In the act of progression of “The Author of Her Book”, readers ascertain that Anne did not want her poems to land in “criticks hands”(20). To avoid the constant atrocious critique of media, Anne strongly affirms that her poems were just intended for family. She pictured them as mediocre and unsatisfactory stating that poems were poor and would never meet audience’s expectations. Humans naturally want to avoid criticism and other’s gross examination. To speak my truth, nobody likes to be criticized about something that took loads of hard work to achieve.
In conclusion, the thought of censoring in The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn is plainly idiotic. It suppresses the message Mark Twain is trying to send by, as Hetert-Qebu Walters says, “changes are another form of censorship, seeking to gloss over the complexities of life during a horrific period in American history.” therefore destroying the meaning of the novel. Children will not be tainted by the words used because they know why the words are used, because of education and the fact that they plainly won’t bat and eye at the words. People such as publishers who wish to reprint the book with censored words have no respect for literature and just care about printing more copies for more money. With all of this said I cannot help but to agree with Walters when she says, “choose an edition of Huckleberry Finn that respects the words of Twain as he wrote them & his critique of our nation 's history”.
In the test case Foster sees Persephone, the history major focuses on the conflicts between the character and the social implications of the garden party, then the English major perceives that it’s a coming of age story where the character realizes that others hardships are not her own thus insignificant to her. Another thing that got captured my interest was the meaning of character’s physical appearance and what ailments affect them and by what the author means by it. I never thought about how physical deformities show that character’s distortion of morals. It stood out more prominently considering the other book I was reading on the side, which I will mention more on later. The way authors kill off their characters was also interesting: heart issue equals emotional turmoil, and the difference between going out with a bang or a whimper.
Lastly, the narrator fabricates that the old man is simply not home to assure the officers. Readers may question Poe’s choice of a mentally unstable narrator. Though the narrator is clearly proven mad, his descriptions intensify the story greatly. It gives the tale purpose and proposes a captivating plot. A narrator: it is now made debatable if readers will ever have entire trust in another after Edgar Allan Poe’s remarkable
Because his novel does not follow any real structure, the novel shows the view point of Billy Pilgrim travelling in time and revisiting different points throughout his life. And in doing so, Slaughter-house Five does not show said events in chronological order. Vonnegut’s novel has been tried in many occasions to be censored by schools by giving reasons that the content and portrayal of sex is vulgar and a work that should not be studied in public schools but have all failed for the reason that a work cannot be banned simply because the system dislikes the work that they created. Adding Kurt Vonnegut’s Slaughter-house Five would be a work that could be studied on topics such as free will, fate, war, and the allusions such as the history of World War II, the Vietnam War and the civil rights protests that Vonnegut portrayed in the novel. Just as many have been able to study Harper Lee’s To Kill A Mockingbird which was published in 1960 is only nine years older than Kurt Vonnegut’s Slaughter-house Five and the notable difference in writing is seen in both novels.
However, this truth remains unknown to Parris, so one has to analyze the situation from his point of view. Disregarding the truth, the first thing Parris worries about is his own name and reputation, instead of his daughter’s wellbeing. Thus, having his estate and daughter involved with witchcraft and unnatural events obviously threatens his rank as a revered. While arguing with Abigail, he says “my ministry’s at stake, my ministry and perhaps your cousin’s life”(Miller, 11), explicitly revealing how he places the importance of his name before Betty’s own sake. Parris is afraid of what others might think of him and avoids facing the congregation in order to evade the topic of witchcraft.
I have done some research about this poem and I find the author 's story and background quite dark. But I 've done this because I was stuck on it, and wanted some other people 's thoughts and how they received the poem, after searching for a long time, I realised that there was no widely accepted single interpretation of the poem, (I had to do that because I felt guilty for reading other people 's interpretations, felt like cheating) eventually, I think I crafted my own interpretation, I also have some supporting evidence (or so I think) to back it up. I would like some feedback and see where you would fine loopholes in this interpretation of this poem. The first four lines are getting the reader to understand that "I" is a mirror, for it is silver and exact, having no preconceptions. This shows that it has a silver look, and "I" cannot be biased, which inanimate objects are, unbiased, since they can 't think, which could be a mirror since the title of the poem is Mirror, thus suggesting that the poem would most likely be connected to reflections or mirrors.
