Through the use of syntax, Cisneros portrays the message that trying to mature too early will result in loss of innocence.

The Metaphor Literary Paragraph In Budge Wilson’s “The Metaphor” the once young, enthusiastic 13 year old girl Charlotte is followed through her journey to becoming a 16 year old high school student who has been oppressed by society to match their standards. To begin with, in grade 7, Charlotte has an English teacher by the name of Miss Hancock, who is “plump and unmarried and overenthusiastic” (65). A vital role in Charlotte’s life is played by Miss Hancock because she introduces her to the beauty of literature and the importance of creativity.

For example She Said “When I think of the hometown of my young all that I seem to remember is dust-brown crumbly dust of late summer- arid sterile dust that the eyes and makes them water, get into the throat, and between the toes of my bare brown feet.

American poet, Robert Frost in his melancholy poem, “Nothing Gold Can Stay” presents the idea of nothing good lasting forever while using nature as a paradigm. This is represented through seasons with each season representing a different mood or stage in the cycle of growth. He develops his message through the personification of nature to show the drastic changes of plants. Specifically, this is presented in first couplet of the poem “Nature 's first green is gold, Her hardest hue to hold.” The line mentioned is giving nature human characteristics of possession and movement to enhance the meaning behind the words relating to the spring season. Additionally, symbolism is scattered throughout like the use of the biblical paradise Eden.
I found in the poem "Because I could not stop for Death" that line 22, 'Feels shorter than the Day' was using Figurative language. the 'Day' is figuratively referred to a long awaited wedding day of marrying death. Also in the poem "Barbie Doll" line 15-16, 'Her good nature wore out like a fan belt' is also figurative language. A fan belt does not wear out quick, so after being the 'fan' she exhilarated all her joy and happiness until she couldn't do it. Finally, in the poem "Batter my heart, three-personed God" line 4, 'Your force to break, blow, burn, and make me new' is another example of figurative language.
Complexity and Entrapment “Daystar” by Rita Dove, is part of a collection of poems entitled “Thomas and Beulah” which all poems in the collection are based very loosely on Dove’s grandparents (Cavalieri 1995). In this poem, the author gives an account of a young mother’s daily life, and her yearning for peace and space to breathe. The author gives voice to the complexities and struggles of being a mother which leads to the speaker feeling confined. In “Daystar” imagery, diction, and mood showcase how a person can grow into a situation where they feel overwhelmed and trapped. In “Daystar” the author builds a cramped, oppressive mood, with an undertone of quiet exhaustion throughout the piece.
" Lucy integrated with nature after a high transcendental sprite, she renounced the poor material world by enjoying her spirit of childhood and left this world to another one as if she go through out-of-body experience..

I believe that most movies, advertisements, music videos or TV shows that involve any form of decision making or situation of the ‘grass is always greener on the other side’ or even of ‘what might have been’ has influences from this particular piece of poetry. We see characters in shows contemplating a situation as minute as what dress to wear to something major such as should one quit their job or not, are they not all cases of which road to choose and which one will be the road not taken? After my 12th grade I too was caught at two roads, should I apply only to the college of my choice and risk taking a year off or apply to colleges I didn’t want to study in, in hindsight I realize that here too, there was a road not taken. Every decision we make is essentially a case of the road not taken. People have been making decisions before Frost even wrote this piece but now, for most people who have read this poem, when making a decision we associate it, possibly inadvertently with “The Road Not Taken”.
