S. Eliot’s title “The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock ironic is that the woman he speaks of never responds to him anywhere in the poem. This makes it to be the realization of Alfred Prufrock’s loveless life. The failure and breakdown of communication from the other side tell about one aspect, which is the symbol of isolation among humans. The beginning of the poem seems like the speaker is talking to a woman whom he loves. It then turns out to be ironic and against normal expectations of the readers because there is the anticipation of something special to be spoken from the other party as well.
The poem, “Pity Me Not,” by Edna St. Vincent Millay has a theme of heartbreak. The woman the author is writing about replays in her mind how things used to be compared to how they are now. The woman realizes things will never be like they once were and she is ready to accept that. She is heartbroken over that fact that her husband no longer loves her anymore but instead of asking for sympathy, she says do not pity me.
“A Streetcar Named Desire” contains a strong lighting motif that repeats throughout the play. This usually involves Blanche, a character who shies away from any light that is drawn upon her, and is especially sensitive to light when her suitor Mitch is around. To Blanche, she is still young and beautiful in her mind, but when light shines on her she becomes afraid that Mitch will notice her aging skin, her beauty falling. This motif heavily implies how Blanche sees herself and the significance to her sexual innocence. To begin, throughout the play the audience begins to understand how Blanche sees herself.
Basically saying that she did not look like herself she looked the way society wanted her to be presented. Marge gives us a vivid image of how beautiful she looks in the casket. She does not tell us that she's dead, but because of her use of words one can come to a conclusion. Piercy also adds a little sarcasm in the last line “Consummation at last. To every women a happy ending (Piercy 25)”.
Ann Landers the person who wrote this quote, “Love is friendship that has caught fire. It is quiet understanding, mutual confidence, sharing and forgiving. It is loyalty through good and bad times. It settles for less than perfection and makes allowances for human weaknesses.” , kind of tied together what “Button,Button” and “Love In L.A” and “The Gift Of The Magi” because in all these stories there was either love without trust and loyalty or love with trust and loyalty. This is true in Matheson “Button,Button”, Gilb's “Love In L.A”, and O.Henry’s
‘Of Mice and Men’ is a novella set at the time of the ‘Great Depression’, this time period was extremely tough for all Americans due to the lack of stable jobs. Unfortunately, discrimination against black people was extremely prevalent as America was a very racist place. ‘Of Mice and Men’ highlights the discrimination towards black people through Crooks, a black stable buck. One way Steinbeck demonstrates discrimination towards Crooks is through Candy’s explanation of the boss’s attitude towards him. In chapter two, when George and Lennie arrive late at the bunkhouse, Candy tells them about the boss giving the stable buck “hell” as they did not arrive on time.
In Louise Glück’s poem “Terminal Resemblance,” the speaker tells about her relationship, or lack thereof, with her father. The speaker explains a relationship with their father, saying it is not existent. They have a conversation that is supposed to be meaningful, considering he is dying, but it seems to have no meaning to her at all. The speaker wishes her father the best and leaves him and her mother at the door, with the same relationship she had with him before. The poem seems to be about how the speaker does not have a relationship with her father and the news she receives of him dying soon has made her realize that she wants to pursue one with him and start fresh.
sexuality. Millay expresses that love is not an object nor does it help when it falls within her sonnet “ love is not all”. She writes “ Nor yet a floating spar to men that sink/ And rise and sink and rise and sink again; /Love can not fill the thickened lung with breath,” (“Love is not all” 3-5). She realizes that love has its difficulties and one cannot force love.
George Orwell portrays Joseph Stalin as Napoleon the pig in the book Animal Farm as a ruthless tyrant that manipulates the public with a false hope in order to have things in his favor. The main cause of the Russian Revolution was due to the failing leadership under an autocracy. Before the Russian Revolution, the working class would endure poor working conditions and suffer from poor wages. “As a result, there were many strikes and constant conflicts between the workers and the police” (“The Russian Revolution of
Today, the idealistic nature of love presented in the poems seems a bit obsessive. However, at the time, society did not look at this as obsessive, but rather as a heroic act. For instance, in “When the Sweet Air Turns Bitter,” the poet states that “nothing fills me with such longing / As the thing I cannot have,” yet still refuses to “tell her my desire” (Medieval 2, pg. 2). Naturally, if the speaker of the poem was completely in love with a woman and tormented by this feeling, but refused to tell her anything, it would traditionally be looked at as obsessive to a certain extent.

Thoreau and M.L.K Henry David Thoreau’s “Civil Disobedience”, published in 1849, and Martin Luther King Jr.’s “Letter from a Birmingham Jail”, published in 1963, have profound similarities while still having underlying differences. The one of the most distinct similarities in “Civil Disobedience” and “Letter from a Birmingham Jail” is the choice of action both authors decide to use, nonviolent measures, and who they are protesting against, which is government and its actions. On the same note, both essays express the dissatisfaction in the average white citizen’s acceptance for the status quo on slavery and then segregation. For example, both essays have a strikingly similar sentence; King states, “I had hoped that the white moderate

For my Quaker essay I focused on John Woolman. He was British-American Quaker leader and abolitionist whose Journal is recognized as one of the classic records of the spiritual inner life. John was born on October 19, 1720 in Rancocas, New Jersey and died on October 7, 1772, while on a trip to England John Woolman died of smallpox. He is best known for his Journal, and for his lifelong work to end slavery. Both were sources of inspiration to the emerging abolitionists of his day, and continue to inspire readers today.
