Marie De France’s portrayal of “Bisclavert” is a commentary on the expected social roles in the mediaeval time period and how deviations from upholding these expectations lead to undesirable consequences. Her allusions to the importance of maintaining loyalty and chivalry allows one to determine the significance that these values held in society. For example, the betrayal of a husband by the wife was deemed to be prohibited and a harsh punishment would have been considered the norm. All major characters in this lai do not uphold to their social roles, and as a result are subjected to negative consequences. The author introduces the character of a werewolf which she uses as a tool to symbolize a man’s desire for rage and revenge.
Anne Bradstreet’s poem “To My Dear and Loving Husband” was written between the years of 1641 and 1643. “Not until the year 1678, six years after Bradstreet’s death, the poem was published” (Ruby 228). A poet with Puritan beliefs, this poem uses the religious language, hyperbolic metaphors, paradox, and antiquated diction and style in order to explain the devotion and love for her husband as she struggles with the Puritan way of life along with the uncertainty of her reassurance of love. Reading this poem over and over for countless hours I came to the conclusion that there are two messages that Bradstreet was trying to project in this poem, the Literal way and the sarcastic way. The Literal way clearly shows the readers the love of a wife for her husband.
1 In Hawthorne 's essay “Young Goodman Brown”, does it matter whether or not the protagonist, Goodman Brown, dreamt the events in the story? The idea and drive behind religious faith and belief is a concept consistently explored in Young Goodman Brown (YGB). The story explores Brown 's journey in a single night which inexplicably ends with a tarnished perspective on religious faith as portrayed by his fellow villagers. Brown himself grows to be disillusioned on faith but the events leading up to this shift however, is ambiguous at best, with the debate mostly centred towards the notion that Brown merely dreamt the events, resulting in an unfair and biased outcome in terms of his sentiment towards the villagers and his own belief.
As the Navajo people chant, “Oh beauty before me, beauty behind me, beauty to the right of me, beauty to the left of me, beauty above me, beauty below me, I am on the Pollen Path. In the house of life I wander, On the pollen path.” (“Wandering the Navajo Pollen Path” 1). This chant is a Navajo Ritual, that is meant to remind the Navajo people that our journeys will have many starting points, stalling points, opportunities to develop, that people will be there to support us in our journey, until we are ready to emerge into the path and continue our journey. As a Navajo woman, who is Carmelita Graymountain and what is her journey like?
Have you ever suddenly felt as if you were being watched? Maybe the next door neighbor distractedly trimming a bush in your peripheral vision became a vaguely threatening figure lurking in the shadows, or the dark sky seemed to prelude the arrival of something far more sinister than rain. Or maybe you’ve felt overwhelmingly guilty, possibly for no good reason at all, and listened as the sound of the wind rushing through the trees morphed into condemning whispers, or watched as every person within a mile seemed to turn and stare at you with eerily accurate conviction. It’s highly unlikely that the little old woman pruning her rose bush was stalking you, or that the darkened sky was foreboding any horrific event other than your brand new shoes getting soaked. Likewise, it’s improbable that every resident of your town, along with nature itself, was judging you.
