Pain and suffering can make one say and do things that they otherwise would not. For instance, when Elie’s father was being beaten in front of him, Elie did not try to help him; he “had not even blinked” due to the fear he felt. Nonetheless, his father understood Elie’s actions and whispered, “It doesn’t hurt,” to make Elie feel less remorseful. Elie felt guilty for not doing anything to help his father, and if it had not been for his father understanding his actions, guilt could have consumed Elie to such a degree that it would have made it more difficult to live. By showing that he understood his son, Elie’s father made Elie’s survival more probable.
T.S. Eliot depicts Prufrock’s environment beginning with an evening that was “spread out against the sky” with “half-deserted streets” and the “restless nights in one-night cheap hotels” in order to show that Prufrock’s image of the world is gloomy, unhappy, and low-spirited. He completes the picture with the restless nights filled with “the yellow smoke that slides” along the gritty streets and “rubs its back upon the window panes.” This portrait draws on the senses because it sets a solemn mood that immerses the reader into the poem and causes him or her to feel the isolation that Prufrock felt. Eliot helps the reader grasp the inner conflict slowly deteriorating Prufrock’s mind and diminishing his insecurity about his appearance and what others think about him. His self-doubt and lack of confidence within his own mind reject the perpetual hope of having a romantic relationship with a woman.
Another feeling that is created within the reader for Peyton is a heartbreaking one. Some people may think the claim is that the the author uses description to make the reader question, create empathy, and create a mood. However, the problem with this claim is that describing something is not suspenseful nor empathetic or mood building. The original claim used above is stronger because the author has Peyton sink into the stream (creating suspense) and waits to tell the reader that he rises back toward the surface( making the reader predict). When Peyton is walking home to his wife he chooses a road which seems anything could jump out from the side of it (suspense) and describes it as barren and lacking any signs of civilization (creating a mood).
People experience love at different intensities. It can make you feel like you are at the top of the world and at the bottom of the pit in a matter of seconds. For some, the search for love seems like an endless process that seem to span over a lifetime while others seem to casually fall in and out of it on a regular basis. We can love anything, there is no right or wrong to that. However, here, love refers to two people.
These allusions were used to easily bring forth the impressions and characteristics conveyed by the sources alluded to, as well as creating flexibility for his readers. Hamlet, To His Coy Mistress, and The Bible are a few notable sources that Eliot alludes to within the poem. Eliot particularly favored the poet Andrew Marvell, the renowned author of To His Coy Mistress. To summarize blatantly, it is a poem about a man trying to convince a woman to sleep with him. The underlying message however is to seize the day.
Emerson uses Nature in all of his surroundings and especially in young, innocent children to connect innocent things to his beliefs to persuade readers. This is demonstrated in the quote “What pretty oracles Nature yields us on this text in the face and behavior of children, babes and even brutes.” At first glance, this seems to argue that children are so new to everything that they have not been corrupted yet; however it can also be used to connect people by Nature bringing out the child like qualities in people. Emerson wants his audience to reminisce running out into the woods and in Nature and how it makes an individual feel young and carefree
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.
Panic, pain, and suffering are all present at the same time. Elie’s use of diction and punctuation gives readers a chance to dive deep down and give a clear picture of how Elie feels about the events that are going on. Looking back on Elie’s first night in the camps. He used repetition and abrupt punctuation to communicate the shock that Elie felt for the first time. As the story progressed, Elie begins to catch himself beginning to have no pity towards others and having a pessimistic attitude.
Both Ginsberg and Eliot use the empty streets and darkness because of the feeling of loneliness it brings to people. In “The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock,” Eliot says, in lines 8-9, “Streets that follow like a tedious argument of insidious intent” and in “A Supermarket in California,” Ginsberg says, “for I walked down the side streets under the trees with a headache self-conscious looking at the full moon” (line 1-2). These quotes from the poems show how they both, as a whole, give the reader the feeling of loneliness and solitude. This is a successful technique for a poet to use because it makes the reader more invested in the story and more connected to the
Furthermore , in “ The Burial of the Dead “ ( First section of the poem ) , Eliot referred to Richard Wagner ‘ Tristan und Isolade ( 19th-century composer ) ( Line 31-34, 42 ) , and in “ The fire sermon “ ( third section ) , Eliot referred to a song from his GÖTTERDÄMMERURG opera ( Line 266-291) . Moreover , Eliot referred to the works of Dante Alighieri ( Italian poet ) , Inferno ( line 62 – 65 ) , Purgatorio ( Line 293 – 295 , 412 – 415 ) in order to present the modern life as a place like hell . In addition , In “ the fire sermon “ ( Third section ) , Eliot referred to Tiresias ( a character from Ovid “ a Roman poet whose famous for his group of myths “ ) , But Eliot transformed The character into bisexual persona who see into the gloomy lives of present-day Londoners .
