Sherman Alexie writes the story “Indian Education” using a deadpan tone to build and connect the years of the narrator 's life together in an ironic way. Alexie is able to utilize irony through the use of separate, short sections within the story. The rapid presentation of events, simple thoughts, and poetic points made within the story enable the reader to make quick connections about the narrator’s life to draw more complex realizations. The art that Alexie uses to write this very short story is poetic in nature through the meaning and structure of his writing. By the fact that the reader can draw deeper conclusions about the narrator 's life from Alexie’s writing is evident that his writing is poetic.

The work could have been redone. Yes, it would have taken him a substantial of time to rewrite months worth of ideas, but it was definitely replaceable. Life, however, is not replaceable. Blinded by the obsession with his work, Tom went out on the high ledge to retrieve his paper. Finney writes, “he stood on the ledge outside in the slight, chill breeze, eleven stories above the street.” Tom didn’t realize at the time how shortsighted he was being until the possibility of death was staring him right in the face.
Because the beach was where the poem was where the poem was set, we wanted to film the majority of the scenes at the beach. On the day of filming, we had to reschedule because it started raining and snowing so we decided to go to downtown in the freezing weather instead and shoot as many things as we could during the time given with the camera. We decided to wear all black in our video not only because none of us were comfortable acting in front of a camera, but in reference to Trayvon Martin who died after being shot by the owner of a store who thought he was trying to rob him just because he was black and wore his hoodie up. We also decided not to have a voice over because we thought it would take away from the serious message of the video. There are no extreme angles and minimum distortion in our video because we wanted it to be as realist as possible, although we did use high angles to represent vulnerability and low angles to
In “Piano”, the piano take D. H. Lawrence back in time to his childhood and an evidence of that would be what he said in his poem “Taking me back the vista of years”. This added nostalgia to the poem; this helps him convey his emotions as this tells the reader how much did the poet actually miss his mother. In “Poem At Thirty-Nine”, Alice Walker goes back in time ,as Lawrence did, as she said “since I was born”. After “since” in the beginning of the poem, the poet talks about her father; this nostalgia helps her tell the readers how much she misses her father. Walker is remembering him in the poem and talking about and describing him which helps the readers understand her emotions towards
“Poetry is the spontaneous overflow of powerful feelings: it takes its origin from emotion recollected in tranquility” (Wordsworth, Preface to the Lyrical Ballads.). Quoted above is an accurate depiction of how sentimental and felicitous the poetry of Wordsworth and Coleridge are, in response to the description in the question. Both poets allow themselves this space “in which to move his wings” through exploring lamentations on the past and reminiscing on the natural world and places that granted them gratification. Ultimately, the blank verse style, in which both are composed, acts as a blank canvas, allowing them this opportunity to delve into their senses. Moreover, their poems Tintern Abbey and Frost at Midnight are prime examples of the
Twelfth Night surrounds itself with stories of love, but not all of them end with positive outcomes. The definition of tragedy written by Oxford Dictionary as: “A play dealing with tragic events and having an unhappy ending” (Oxford Dictionaries), and of comedy as: “A film, play, or broadcast programme intended to make an audience laugh.” (Oxford Dictionary), helps to differentiate between these different outcomes of love, some as tragic and others as positive or comedic. Keeping these definitions in mind will help to further develop the lack of comedy and presence of tragedy that surrounds the sub plot concerning Malvolio. Nancy Lindheim continues to broaden the themes produced in Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night. Lindheim’s Rethinking Sexuality and Class in Twelfth Night, notes that “critics of course usually recognize that marriage is the desired closure for comedy”, (Lindheim, 680).
The Woe of Flotsam and Jetsam and the Guide to Escapism “Flotsam and Jetsam” is a short story that appeared in the collection “Elsewhere: There” (2012) and is written by the Scottish writer Alan Bissett.

Hood until she had to introduce him to someone else. I wanted to express her feelings of the party and to show her worries of bringing Toby, a man she had just met, to a party with many races of people. Anna does not know Toby enough to know how he would react to the situation she is bringing him into. Throughout the memoir it is mentioned, every so often, that Anna notices Toby studying someone intently or with a strange look on his face.
During this camping trip, the weather was very clear and cool. But by the end of the weekend, the weather transformed into cloudy and rainy. Because of the bad change in weather, my mood went from good to poor. This relates to my poem because in “Nothing Gold Can Stay”, the gold, flowers, and Garden of Eden all change for the worse. So this is just like the weather and how I felt.
I remember it was unusually cold that night, with stiff gusts of wind doing most of the work of pushing the swing. I didn’t care about the cold giving me frost bite, I was too deep in thought. Never did I think about why they fought with Briar, or why Briar would come back from his friends house at eleven in the afternoon wearing different clothes than what he started out with. The door slammed open cracking through my thoughts like lighting bringing me out of my scattered mind and snapping me into cold reality. Briar Bursts out of the
