Whenever I see skulls I automatically think of death. In Harnett’s painting, the skull, candle that has been burnt completely down, and hour glass that has expired reinforce the symbolism towards death. He used a quote from Hamlet in his painting which can also strengthen theme of death in
In the book “Fahrenheit 451” by Ray Bradbury, fire is used throughout as a symbol of goodness and rebirth. Fire is one great example of symbolism in this book.. Each of us has our own image of fire burning within us, and depending on experiences, it could be positive or negative. Fire has a dual image in the book, a symbol of destruction, and a symbol of warmth. Bradbury’s use of symbolism throughout the novel makes the book moving and powerful by using symbolism to reinforce the ideas of anti censorship. The Heart and the Salamander, the title of part one, is the first example of symbolism.
In this essay, the novels Othello and The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde will be compared and contrasted to determine the connection between the two on the basis of the essence of evil in the context of mankind. These two novels both portray evil as a subdued yet easily activated—under the right circumstances—and self-conscious nature of humans. They show this through the connection between Iago and Othello in comparison with the connection of Jekyll and Hyde, the transition of the main characters’ mentality, and the “evil” character committing suicide at the end of the novels. These three examples define each of the two novels discussed in this essay’s perspective on the concept of evil and the way it infests every human as well as its effects on human behavior and mindset. Firstly, evil is shown in the characters that the reader sees in the novels through the “friendship” (less like friendship in Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde) of some of the most prominent characters.
Vowell’s use of hyperbole is very important to this story because it allows the story to have a comedic effect so the story won 't get too serious and then turn into a sad story about a girl who can 't find something in common with her father. An example of how the author uses hyperbole for a comedic effect was when she was talking about the main characters experience with guns. The main event refers to guns as sticks of death, the author is also able to make the first time the main character fired a gun into a funny story. That the sound that the gun made was as big as God, and the recoil kicked her back to the ground like a bully. The main character claims that her experience was so bad that she doesn 't want to even touch guns
Despite being on opposite sides of the law, the characters Guy Montag, from Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury, and DC comic character Mick Rory by John Broome and Carmine Infantio, are actually quite similar and share the symbol of fire. Both characters show some level of pyromania. In a story where books and building and even people get burned saying that some pyromania would be easy enough. However, according to britannica.com pyromania is, “an impulse-control disorder characterized by the recurrent compulsion to set fires.” In the beginning of Fahrenheit 451 it says “It was a special pleasure to see things eaten, to see things blacken and changed.” (Bradbury 1) when talking about Montag. He is getting pleasure from burning things.
The use of the vibrant color red is used throughout the book The Scarlet Letter due to the fact that the color red is associated with "passionate love, seduction, violence, danger, anger, and adventure." (Color Matters). The Scarlet Letter is a Nathaniel Hawthorne novel where the main character Hester Prynne commits adultery and is condemned to wear a scarlet letter A. Nathaniel Hawthorne's unique use of symbols is evident throughout the book as he gives simple everyday things, like the letter A, a rose bush, and the colors black and red, moral meaning to help the reader comprehend the content of the story. The letter A Hester Prynne is ordered to wear is meant to be a form of public shame. In the beginning, it stands for "adulterer" and the

Dickinson had a way to use metaphors and similes to compare and contrast her situations. A prominent focus within her poems is the split decision to choose between life and death. You can see this reflected in two of her poems “My Life had stood -a Loaded Gun-“ and “Because I could not stop death”.
