However, in reality, symbols can interpret what we experience as humans in our lives that can be characterized as symbols in a story we create. In Faulkner 's case, he did an outstanding job in connecting his past experiences in the civil war by symbolizing the falling of the south in conjunction with the symbols in the story. Moreover, in "A Rose for Emily" the symbols that are embedded within the story, create a new kind of depth as well as emphasizing the importance of every aspect that is in the story that Faulkner had in
The text performs its own undoing through its medium by constantly unravelling its own inherent contradictions. The novel turns out to be a contesting site for the warring forces of signifiers and consequently disseminates into an indefinite range of self-conflicting significations. It is to Faulkner’s credit, the absolute artist that he is, could produce a sublime reading experience of it. In As I Lay Dying, Faulkner pushes language to its limit through Addie’s and Darl’s unconventional use of language. Their agrammatical, asyntactical, apertinent, and asemantic language questions and destabilizes the established orders embedded within the major language.

Again this theme of war solving all of his issues is seen in his poetry. This is such a minute detail that can easily be missed, but when noticed creates a completely different and deeper meaning to the poem. This poem is so little known, but for Seeger’s use of understatement and control over words, it is by far the most well written from a technical
At first, an external source, such as an object in nature or a personal experience, influences and inspires the poet so deeply, that an overflow of emotions is created. Even though this experience provides the poet a basis for his poetry, Wordsworth doesn’t believe sensibility alone should dictate poetry. At this stage, the poet is too overwhelmed by his feelings; he is unable to evaluate his emotions and articulate them rationally. A certain amount of time must pass in order to distance himself from the original experience and mental state along with it so that the poet can focus and convey the emotions needed for his poetry. Then the poet goes through a calm recollection and evaluation of the incident and his emotions.
War, an idea that has been in the history of man even before modern civilization or even civilization itself. Due to this, war itself has become the topic of many forms of literature, because of its ability to transcend he normal aspects of life, allowing authors, writers and poets to include many pieces of knowledge, lessons and themes in their work. Two authors that have attempted to do this are John A McCrae in the poem “In Flanders Fields” and Thomas Hardy in “Channel Firing”, in these works there holds many similarities and differences. Such as in both works the authors are clearly speaking on the negative gory aspects of war, and both have a point view of a person who is in a middle of the battle.

In As I Lay Dying, the darkly humorous story of the poor white Bundren family's journey from farm to town to bury its matriarch Addie, Faulkner uses the experimental forms associated with modernism to depict the impact of the sociocultural era called modernity, and the processes of urbanization and industrialization known as modernization, on poor whites in the rural South. Understanding the novel's engagement with rural life in the modern era redefines the relationship of Faulkner's work to the literature and politics of its Depression era context, exposes the social and aesthetic import of rural obsolescence, and suggests a means of rethinking modernism writ large. Through this personage, the novel explores the creation of the modern, laying
Diction is a key component in writing because it helps define a writer’s style. With Kafka, he decided to use many words that tended to have the same articulation to help bring out different forms of emotion. These sentences included words with similar spelling, making the diction of each word sound similar. “He began to crawl, crawled over everything, walls, furniture and ceiling, and finally in desperation, as the whole room was beginning to spin, fell down onto the middle of the big table,” (Kafka 35). This, in turn, these emotions would draw out the themes that Kafka wanted to display, like alienation for example.
