Curly’s wife walks into the bunkhouse and “the rectangle of sunshine in the doorway [is] cut off” (31). She is a sign of trouble, and her blocking the light foreshadows a terrible event that will occur with her. Soon, Curly’s wife will get Lennie into trouble when he ends up killing her, which causes a ripple of terrible events to follow. Carlson insists that Candy’s dog is worthless, smelly, and needs to be killed. Confident in his opinion, Carlson “[leads] the dog out into the darkness” (48).
Night portrays various symbols amidst the novel, Night, by Elie Wiesel. The description represents the loss of great memories and strengths as darkness fills individuals’ lives. As the stars’ rise, faith in God is replaced with the atrocious attention of Satan’s ways. One begins to doubt Gods miracles and protection. Therefore, lives are tormented as they live in fear of death.
In lines 11-12, Cullen writes “Gaunt eagle whose raw pinions stain the bars/ That prison you, so men cry for the stars!”. Here, the usage of gaunt describes the eagle, a symbol for freedom, as an animal who is haggard due to suffering or hunger. Cullen further demeans this symbol of freedom when he writes “raw pinions”. This is a term that indicates that the zookeepers have cut off the eagle’s pinions, the parts that are necessary for flight, forever trapping it in its cage. Further in the poem,
"I frigging hate you, Jimmy Neutron." Jimmy looked back, even more Glad and still fingering the Hard book. "John, I hate you," he replied. They looked at each other with Mad feelings, like two fierce, fluffy foxes hopping at a very Depressed Christmas, which had R & B music playing in the background and two special uncles rampaging to the beat. Suddenly, John lunged forward and tried to punch Jimmy in the face.
In the South, Attaway highlights the exhausted land, Big Mat 's barren wife Hattie, the family 's excessive hunger, and the chore of plowing all day with no incentive. Additionally, the urban landscape of the North is also painted as dull and dying. In the North, Attaway demonstrates the destruction of natural landscape, evident " in the pollution of the ‘dirty-as-a-catfish-hole river with a beautiful name: the ‘Monongahela,’” as well as the “mountains of red ore, yellow limestone, and black coke, that line the river banks” (43). Blood on the Forge follows the three Moss brother- Big Mat, Chinatown, and Melody. They move to the industrial wasteland of western Pennsylvania from the Jim Crow South.
A jabbering bird makes an appearance a few times and asks the question “Poo-tee-weet?” There are no words to describe the horrors of Dresden and war in general. The bird symbolizes that lack of anything worth saying while asking a question that has no answer. Some more animals that hold some meaning are the horses that draw the carriage through Dresden after the bombing. They are desperately thirsty and their hooves have cracked and bloodied so that every step is torture. The horses are almost driven mad with pain.
One of the biggest representations of this is the sky going dark. “By the clock ‘tis day, / And yet dark night strangles the traveling lamp,” (2.4.6-7). Darkness is often associated with wrongdoing, and the dark sky in the middle of the day is the world rejecting the abnormality of Macbeth murdering the King. Two of Duncan’s horses - trained to be obedient and gentle at all times - broke out of their stalls despite their usual calm and ate each other. This unbalance in nature affects not only the physical world of birds and horses, but also disturbances in Macbeth’s very human nature.
An example of the evil aura coming from this monster's cave is that “At night there, something uncanny happens: the water burns” (Beowulf 95) and “On its back, the heather-stepper halts: the hart in flight from pursuing hounds will turn to face them with firm-set horns and die in the wood rather than dive beneath its surface.”(Beowulf 95) While the Danes and Beowulf’s warriors sleep peacefully unaware in Heorot, and Beowulf is away, Grendel’s mother attacks and in the process kills Hrothgar’s friend and adviser, Aeschere. In good blood with Hrothgar, Beowulf seeks out the hiding spot of the”monstrous hell-bride”(Beowulf 89) and commences battle with the mother. his sword failing him he turns to a found sword in the depths of the water cave, it being a sword of a strong warrior and slays Grendel’s mother with a slice to the neck that beheads her. Beowulf then finds Grendel’s body and cuts off his head to bring back to Heorot with him as a
The Wolves in the Walls has a very harrowing tone to it mostly portrayed in the illustrations, The people in the story are very ghastly in the way the author drew faces, especially eyes. The beady eyes of the characters leave an unsettling feeling in the reader that makes the story feel more nightmarish. The way everything is fragmented and seemingly spliced together look of everything from the carpet to the faces is very eerie. The narrative also is reminiscent of a child 's nightmare, When the other characters tell Lucy that, “when the wolves come out of the walls it’s all over,” it is very terrifying especially for a child. One of the themes of the story is how to overcome fear.
“A plague o’ both your houses!” mercutio 's face has grown serious and pained as he yells at tybalt and romeo. His voice echos, thunder claps sound and the camera switches to a long shot showing the clouds swirl around the group of enemies this sets a grave scene making the viewer feel a sense of inevitable doom.

This scene uses many film techniques very effectively such as close up shots far away shots slowmo and fast pace and is a major turn point for
Death was almost inevitable due to the kill-all order if the Americans were to win the war, the grotesque conditions the camps were under with rats everywhere, “climbing up his waste basket and wallowing in his urine pail, waking him at night by skittering over his face” (Hillenbrand 187), and the “floor was a thin [straw mat], which would be his bed, with three paper sheets… The walls were flimsy, the floorboards gaped, the ceiling was tarpaper” (Hillenbrand 199). Not to mention that the guards, wanting nothing but the suffering of the enemy internees, would beat the POWs with “such intensity that many of us wondered if we’d ever live to see the end of the war” (Hillenbrand 200). On the other hand, even though Manzanar was completed, “although finished was hardly a word for it. The shacks were built of one thickness of pine planking covered with tarpaper” (Houston 20), the intentions of the camp were as good as they could be considering the circumstances. “The Caucasian servers were thinking that the fruit poured over rice would make a good desert.” (Houston 20) The restrictions differed greatly in each camp endured as well.
Ava Modin 4th hour LINC Escape The pouring rain crashed down onto the dark, cold grounds and smashed against anything in it’s path. It was a monster which would soak anything and the poor dog was a victim. Rufus laid upon the doubtful and depressing ground of the dark and gloomy alley as the hunger and bitter emptiness clenched his stomach like a fist pounding up against the inside of him. The dog hadn’t eaten in over a week and was starving. He rested upon the dumpster while the unbearable smell outrageously and unbearably came across his nose.
5. Evidently from the documents, the most frequently recurring phenomena the accusers felt was the witch 's presence awakening them in their slumber and in some cases said to be sitting on their chests choking them. The bewitchment of animals and creatures being another apparent part of testimonies. For instance, John Louder states "And some tyme after that I being not very well stayed at whome on a Lords day and on the after noon of s 'd day the dores being shutt I did see a black pig in the Roome Comeing towards mee soe I went towards itt to kick it and it vanished away,"(Bridget Bishop,TSB-4,11). He also "...did see a black thing Jump into the window and came & stood Just before my face, upon the bar the body of itt looked like a Munky only the feete ware like a Cocks feete w 'th Claws and the face somewhat more like a mans than a Munkies," which threatened him as well.
