She repeats the issues that go around in her life but in very precise detail. The repetition of words such as “I want…. food, house, wives, duties,etc.” shows what she wants and pictures a ignorant part of how men think what they believe they will receive from their beloved wives. Later Brady goes on to use
Colors that would represent Lady Macbeth are red, black and gray. First, the color red portrays Lady Macbeth because of her ambition and cruelty. A scene that illustrates this would be when Lady Macbeth is persuading Macbeth to murder Duncan. Lady Macbeth says “Does unmake you. I have given suck, and know how tender ‘tis to love the babe that milks me: I would, while it was smiling in my face, have plucked my nipple from his boneless gums, and dashed the brains out, had I so sworn as you have done to this.”
Nora begs Torvald to help her practice the Tarantella dance for the ball to postpone his discovery of Krogstad’s blackmail letter. Therefore, she suggests that “[he] must give [him]self up to [her] entirely” which he responds to be “wholly and absolutely at [her] service” then calls her a “helpless little mortal” (pg. 59). Torvald’s referral to Nora as a “helpless little mortal” suggests that he sees himself as the more dominant gender and it shows he enjoys the act of Nora begging him. Nora uses this to her advantage and tells Torvald to “criticize” and “correct” her which she knows Torvald will do “with great pleasure” (pg. 59). As Nora starts to practice, Torvald criticizes her to go “slower” and “not so violently” but Nora responds with “this is the way” which hints at the fact that Nora will start to break free from Torvald’s control and further challenge the traditional female
(Orwell 2.3.25). In this quote, Julia introduces the idea that the purpose of the anti-sex league is so that pent up sexual energy can be transferred into loving Big Brother. This is important because she brings a new idea to Winston and further pushes the reader to believe that Big Brother is bad. The reader can see how Julia’s ideas affect Winston when Orwell writes, “There was a direct intimate connection between chastity and political orthodoxy.
For example they know that if they are going to sting you they will try and go for the most vulnerable part, they can only sting once so they try and plant it on your face. Once their stingers have been attached to your skin it pulls out their intestines with it, so it will fly off and die. Another example is if one bee finds a large supply of nectar they will fill up and fly back to the hive. When they get to the hive they will do a special dance to let the others know where the nectar is. They know to follow the queen if she leaves, because she is the only way to keep the hive going.
In Sue Monk Kidd’s novel, The Secret Life of Bees, Kidd incorporates the literary technique of allusion to assist the reader in delving into Lily’s thought process. Furthermore, to incorporate allusion, Kidd compares the message Lily interpreted from the arrival of the bees in her room to the plagues God sent to the pharaoh Ramesses. Lily ponders: Back in my room on the peach farm, when the bees had first come out at night, I had imagined they were sent as a special plague for T. Ray. God saying, Let my daughter go, and maybe that’s exactly what they’d been, a plague that released me (151).

Hitchcock has treated Lisa as a remarkable portrait of American personality and Pomerance describes her thus: “There she is now, scampering up a fire escape, sliding onto a window ledge in her high heel, invading a presumed murderer’s cave, finding irrefutable evidence that something dark and unthinkable has undeniably been happening there, and transmitting that evidence back home” (Pomerance 161). Lisa by becoming a sleuth on behalf of Jeff wants to prove that she can be the sort of girl he needs and their marriage is possible. She now shows that women can also have power, agency, activity, and adventurous triumph within their grasp. No other character in Rear Window exhibits such derring-do, the prowess or the skill (Pomerance 161). Lisa proves that nothing is impossible
The men from lunch serve us some sort of dandelion tea, but I think it might actually be dirt water (mud). I look around for Bane, but he isn’t around. After we finish our tea, a very pretty blonde woman steps into the middle of our circle. She introduces herself as Thordis. She is here to share with us her story of “rape, revenge and resurrection.”
We are all born with a natural curiosity about the world around us. We are constantly asking questions and hypothesizing situations to better ourselves. It is only a natural reaction to take interest in ones’ origins and debate the rule of society. The movie, The Secret Life of Bees, focuses on the United States during the time of the Civil Rights Act. It paints a picture of a girl, Lily Owens, navigating life in a world divided.
In the auto-biographical excerpt from Ornithological Biographies by John James Audubon, he depicts his intriguing encounter with the wild pigeons of Ohio, while in Annie Dillard's engaging excerpt from Pilgrim at Tinker Creek, she illustrates her thought-provoking observation of the Starling roost migration. Both writers had an overriding passion that showed through in the diction, tone, and syntax of their pieces. Because of these different infatuations both authors use different literary devices that match their feelings of how they view the birds and how the birds affected them. The authors were very different in their tonality of the excerpts, as in how Audubon was a scientist studying the life of birds, but Dillard had a passion for the arts. Therefore both writers had a very different style of writing.
Rhetorical Analysis Writer, Annie Dillard, in her narrative essay, “It’s Not Talent; It’s Just Work,” opposes the idea of talent and instead argues that greatness is achieved by working hard and using discipline to hone in on abilities. In Annie Dillard’s “It’s Not Talent; It’s Just Work”, she effectively constructs her argument that talent is not crucial for triumph but is achieved through great effort as well as using discipline to enhance abilities by using logical appeals, personal anecdotes, and repetition. Her purpose is to reach out to an audience who believes that success is natural due to one’s talent. Dillard opens her essay about hard work being the key to success by emphasizing logically that any great accomplishment takes work
Annie Dillard's “Living Like Weasels” is a personal essay reflecting the author's interpretation of her first encounter with a wild weasel. From the very beginning, Dillard explains what it is that makes a weasel wild, saying that they, “[stalk] rabbits, mice, muskrats , and birds, killing more bodies than he can eat warm, and often dragging the carcases home” (Dillard, line 2). She uses very violent and visceral imagery and almost exaggerates to the readers how savage they live. Dillard is very clear in mentioning that the bodies are ‘warm’ as the weasel ‘drags’ it home; although written so casually, this can strike the readers as disturbing being that it implies the weasel does not even wait for death to completely consume the body of the prey. She continues to offer a distant naturalistic description of the location where she met the weasel, “under every bush [a] muskrat hole or a beer can...fields and woods, threaded everywhere with motorcycle tracks--in whose bare clay wild turtles lay eggs”
In the description of Living like a weasel , Dillard uses naturalistic diction and pure phraseology to contribute to her aim increasing such a contrast and guiding the reader towards a path of instinct above all else. The weasel, described as, “gazing”, “blossomed” and “disappeared” . She utilizes those words that usher in an ambience of natural beauty, letting the reader imagine being nested in the woods. Dillard introduces a contrast between the “musky” and “tender” nature of woods and pond versus the “beer can” filled and “threatened” tracks imprinted by human exploration and “physical senses”. She develops the idea by bringing the reader into her childhood world in pennsylvania suburbia with nature oriented diction and imagery.
The short story “The Chase,” an excerpt from An American Childhood by Annie Dillard, and the novel Out of the Dust by Karen Hesse share a similar theme of how strangers impact a person's life. The theme that they share is how strangers can have a positive, long-lasting impact on people’s lives. Dillard and Hesse use evidence throughout the text to support the theme. At the beginning of the text, Annie uses flashback as a method to explain how the boys taught her to play football and baseball.
