The enforcers then would use nets to guard their ship for protecting the lives of slaves. Essentially the main point of this article is some slaves didn’t want to live under the absolute and abusive control of their masters. To them, suicide was an easier painless decision that they wanted to face, instead of working as a hard laborer. As the article explains, Suicide was a freedom that they received after literally killing themselves. If someone were to ask me about this article; I would have to say, it’s the torturous decisions of slaves, and their painful journey to
Wiesel’s speech shows how he worked to keep the memory of those people alive because he knows that people will continue to be guilty, to be accomplices if they forget. Furthermore, Wiesel knows that keeping the memory of those poor, innocent will avoid the repetition of the atrocity done in the future. The stories and experiences of Wiesel allowed for people to see the true horrors of what occurs when people who keep silence become “accomplices” of those who inflict pain towards humans. To conclude, Wiesel chose to use parallelism in his speech to emphasize the fault people had for keeping silence and allowing the torture of innocent
The author composed the poem in such a way that it is dulcet to read. The message within the poem is evident because of the Metaphors of nature and the destruction of mankind. Andrew
The word “drowning” has connotation of death as it implies that Owen was “helpless” when he “saw” his friend ‘drowning’ in the “green sea”. Perhaps, it suggests that how dangerous and deadly the “green sea” could cause and the horrific nature of war. The word “sea” has connotation of vast as it states the range of the gas attack is broad. Also, it might suggest that the gas attack is perilous and unpredictable. Owen uses this gruesome and grisly image to emphasize it is not sweet and honorable to die for one’s country.
However, Heaney also does a good job of translating literally in several cases, the inclusion or shifting of phrases and words such a “God-cursed,” “race of men,” “mansion” and the change of the last line from the original cement this work as being more dynamically equivalent than formally equivalent (711-2; 728). Nonetheless, Heaney does well in maintaining the original tone and style and the work with kennings such as “God-cursed,” “cloud-murk,” and

Hamlet from Hamlet asserts, “To die, to sleep-- No more--and by a sleep to say we end The heartache, and the thousand natural shocks That flesh is heir to. ‘Tis a consummation.” (Act 3, Sc 1) Hamlet believes that death is the only way out. Death is to be embraced because it is the only way to escape the pain from this world. Death was an eye opener in a different way to Hamlet.
It has also shown the effectiveness of using figurative language and sound devices to portray an idea. By using these devices, the poet created a literal and a figurative meaning to the poem. After analysing the poem, Hughes showed that the concepts listed after the first line were all the things Hughes compared a deferred dream to. He gathered things that an average person wouldn’t like and compared it to a deferred dream. These unappealing things may be rotten meat, a dried raisin, a stale sweet, or a heavy load.
Although Laertes deliberately collaborates with Claudius to kill Hamlet, Laertes’ forgiveness and quick acceptance of his death suggest his platonic conception of morality. Before the match, Laertes receives Hamlet’s apology when he says, “I am satisfied in nature/… But in my terms of honour / I stand aloof” (5.2. 259-62). Laertes forgives Hamlet when he accepts the apology in “nature”; however, Laertes’ duty to protect his reputation requires him to avenge his father. In effect, Laertes evokes the distinction between honor and nature and the former’s influence over his decision to choose revenge over clemency.
Animals in Semonides: Women in a New Perspective One of the best ways to describe something is by connecting it to what one already knows. The ancient Greeks in particular were very fond of utilizing metaphors and similes to discuss scenes that they wished to better convey to their audience. Some uses would just be nothing more than a simple line or phrase and some would be vast, extended metaphors such as those by Homer. Many times these comparisons were made between man and beast and, in this specific case, between woman and their animal kingdom counterparts. Semonides creates an interesting perspective in his poem Women relating women and animals by means of shared characteristics.
Except rebellion, which is the bloodiest way to resist their enslavement, stealing form their owners, robbing their owners’ property and profit and damaging machinery are the less obvious way to resistant. But all of these resistance acts carried the potential risk to be punished, or killed if their master found out, and these acts were mostly what did male slaves did. In female slaves’ world, slave women “would terminate a pregnancy or even kill their new-born babies rather than bring a child into the world to be a slave,” (Slave Resistance) because the child of a female slave would be born as a slave. Due to knowledge of medicines, poisoning their master’s food was commonly what female slaves did to against their owners. Arson and murder were also happened in many enslaved African women’s resistance.
Throughout the narrative Douglass uses rhetorical imagery in order to provide readers with an insight to the true horrors of slavery. In chapter one of the narrative, Douglass speaks of the time when he would witness his aunt being tortured and beat by the master. He writes about seeing her “covered in blood” with “a whip upon her naked back”. Douglass uses and explains this experience in detail in order to paint a picture in the readers’ head and give them a firsthand experience to the harsh life of a slave. By using blood as an example of what he sensed, he is bringing in a word that is emotionally tied.
Ernest Hemingway uses many personal anecdotes along with anecdotes of others in order to draw an emotional picture for his readers. As soon as chapter one begins Hemingway references to his first bullfight experience. He then follows up with ethos when he mentions the ethics of the use of horses and at the time these ethics were Christian, a “modern” point of view. The killing of the horses in bullfight were modernly deemed as unethical. Throughout the rest of the essay, Hemingway takes a closer look at the deaths of these animals to, in a way, defend their deaths.
Samuel Butler views and describes it in a very complex way. He describes life to be the a conscious one then an unconscientious one. He describes the possibilities of life being short as we wait to die to live, and that the idea can be ridiculous. He shows that life can be and amazing and unique thing in its own way to everyone. He is able to effectively demonstrate his attitude towards life by using strategies like metaphors,similes, imagery, and in his use of diction and syntax.
