I have chosen the poem titled Oxygen by Mary Oliver, found on page 373 in the Meyer text for first analysis. This poem is essential about someone who is seriously ill, however, the tone is rather appreciative and hopeful. In line 5-6, the individual–might be the author herself– kneels by the fire, and this may connect to the fuel that is keeping her partner alive. The burning logs correlates to the life within her partner, that as long as they burn, he will be kept alive. The oxygen fuels the fire burning and also keeps her man alive; however, he is ill and “in his usual position, leaning on his shoulder.”
The flaws can affect the plot in negative and both positive ways. For instance, Doctor Frankenstein’s flaw caused all his problems in the book, but in stories like The Most Important Day by Helen Keller, her flaw caused all the good things to happen to her. Although in both stories the main characters had a grand realization. Doctor Frankenstein realized that he doesn’t want to be godlike anymore. Helen Keller’s realization was that life is beautiful, and this quote affirms that, “ It would have been difficult to find a happier child than I was as I lay in my crib at the close of that eventful day and lived over the joys it had brought me, and for the first time longed for a new day to come” (Keller 84-85).
Laertes was always supportive of his sister and was very upset when he found out that she had gone “mentally insane”. Hamlet was so envious of him for this reason because he was in love with Ophelia. The fact that Hamlet couldn’t show his love for Ophelia like Laertes did, set a fire inside of him. After Ophelia had drowned, (committed suicide), they had a funeral for her and Hamlet confessed his love for Ophelia feeling relieved and equal to
This situation was quite ironic as most children would be scared or anxious, but Walls was optimistic and enraptured by the simple pleasures and basic necessities provided at the hospital. Her burns also represent her obsession with fire and fascination with chaos. “Like build the Glass Castle.

Glorifying the 1920’s, F. Scott Fitzgerald captivates readers with his rich passages and vivid imagery depicting the iconic moments of romantic tragedy in The Great Gatsby. one of Fitzgerald 's more famous works of art, emphasising Gatsby 's life, that reflects parts of his own life. Daisy empitomizes the least moral in the novel, due to her lack of caring for her daughter, her affair with Gatsby, and her “fake” love for Tom. Her surroundings throughout the novel diversify the different mortality levels people exert. The “Golden Girl”, Daisy Buchanan, lacks in morality when it comes to caring for her daughter.
The author then says, “I hunched in its belly till my wet fur froze”, which without meaning is viewed as birth as well, the gunner is sitting in the mother’s womb, but Jarrell compares the belly to the ball turret, he is sitting or “hunched” in the turret until his “wet fur froze”, which shows the gunner is so nervous that he is sweating in through his fur bomber jacket. The fact that the gunner is nervous shows he is scared for his life, knowing it could end at any point in time due to the darkness of war. Jarrell portrays the mother and the birth to be the light of life, as birth is a beautiful thing, and portrays the bomber and the turret to be the darkness of life, as these things cause death. The metaphor in place shows that the soldier feels as if he is wronged, he was thrown into war where he can lose his life, but at the same time there are millions of
While it stirs them from the norm, it also enlightens Lilly as to what she’s missing in her life, and what she desires most in her relationship with Morgan. A connection of family and care can be easily sensed between Lilly and Morgan given how they converse about Morgan’s recent heart attack and Lilly’s nightly sleeping pills. The concern, however, comes off as cold and mandatory rather than genuine affection, highlighting the key issue in their relationship; the exhaustion of the normal. The dysfunction of their marriage comes to light even further as Parker, bleeding from the head, stumbles into their bedroom one night.

The repetitive nature of the main character’s attempts to win his girlfriend back really remind me of the cycle of events that is characteristic of fairy tales. He tries to get Kim back, “I can win her back... I know what to do... I will use my patience... my complex problem-solving skills… I will cook with gas,” he says as he cleans the apartment, but he is met with indifference, “I can’t believe you cleaned,” Kim says right before she goes out to hook up with the caveman (p 541).
This reaches a climax when he comes home intoxicated which shows that he expressed his true feelings towards Catherine, “He reaches out suddenly, draws her to him, and as she strives to free herself he kisses her on the mouth.” From the stage directions we can see that Catherine strives to be free which can be argued that she is fighting due to unwanted admiration. This scene was extremely uncomfortable for the audience to view due to realization of Eddie being her uncle. Despite many warnings from Beatrice and Alfieri, Eddie’s blindness is shown as he ignores their concerns.

Personal relationships are often seen as positive, full of meaningful conversations and have caring interactions but in a utopian world it involves many challenges.
