In fact, the dream might just “expire” altogether. This poem conveys all of the devastating disasters that could happen when a dream is deferred. “Harlem” uses the literary device, tone, to articulate the negatives on unfilling a dream. The powerful poem implies that horribles things happen when one does not attain their dream in the line” Does it dry up like a raisin in the sun?” This quote exposes that if a dream is forgotten it will rue. According to the line, “Maybe it just sags like a heavy load”, goals that are incomplete (or dreams deferred rather) can haunt a person with remorse.
Yunior is jealous by saying “My brother was backing to be Number One Son; in all other things he was generally unchanged, but when it came to my father he obeyed him with a scrupulousness he never shown anybody” (Diaz 140). Provably, Rafa respects his father and follows his father’s ways. Ironically, this close relationship turns into bad influence. Rafa has his father’s dark side because he grows up exactly like his father. Yunior asserts; “father used to take you on his pussy runs, leave you in the car while he run up into cribs to bone his girlfriends” (Diaz 165).
Beli, though her beauty was breathtaking, allowed for callous behavior of men in the way they treated her. The novel talks about one of her more “serious” relationships with the Gangster. The Gangster who falls under the spell of Beli’s physique does not truly love her as she did him. To him she was an escape “Life it seemed had struck the Gangster a dolorous blow and he was uncertain as to how to respond… which might explain why, when he met Beli, he jumped on her stat. I mean what straight middle aged brother has not attempted to regenerate himself through the alchemy of young p---y.
Rex proves to us in his final act that he was a good father deep down. Papi shares a different connection with Reyna in the way that it is his “American Dream” to have the children gain the knowledge he couldn’t have from free schooling. During the memoir there are numerous references to Papi’s influence on his children specifically Reyna going to school. The most compelling instance was Papi explaining that “Just because we’re illegal, doesn’t mean we can’t dream.” Reyna found solace in that statement that would help her achieve her citizenship and continue on to
Throughout the memoir, we learn about Baca’s father through the memories he would share. Baca does not degrade his father, even though his father was not there for him. The lack of a father only gave Baca a greater determination to become a loving father for his family and to live life the best he can (Baca, 6, 2001). As a young child, Baca was afraid of his father’s temperament, but Baca still yearned his father’s love “I want to go to him and hug him but I’m afraid.” (Baca, 144, 2001). Baca’s father was a strong factor that affected Baca’s life.
Wells also employs dialogue in the scene. When building the foundation, Jeanette mentions her father’s words, “”No point in building a good house unless you put down the right foundation” (Walls 155). This use of dialogue shows how Jeanette admires her father, as she acts upon words he said. The dialogue also conveys a hopeful message. It shows Jeanette believes she and her father share the same dream.

Warrants are the means used to justify taking actions against the social issue established while making grounds (Best 2007). Throughout Edwards’ speech, he makes several convincing arguments, but his most effective justification for action comes in the form of a challenge to men concerning the connection between the relationships they have with the women in their lives. He emphasizes the point that men could not possibly truly value their relationships with their daughters, sisters, mothers, or partners if they remained silent on the issue of sexual assault (Edwards 2016). Edwards goes on to explain that men are often taught to think about the four women in their lives that they value most to invoke interest in combating sexual assault. As a result, Edwards suggests this form of thinking “sells men short.” Edward’s tactic works to curate the desire to fiercely defend and protect all women by encouraging men to disprove the notion that they only have the capacity to care for the women in their own
Men are supposed to be brave and courageous- they reside in “the male realm of power and politics with, in the eyes of the true-blooded men to whom that world properly belongs ” (Long -64). Similarly, women are shown to be a weakness throughout the play. Lady Macbeth herself even calls upon the spirits to “unsex me here”, to remove her feminine qualities so that she may be filled with the cruelty of man (1.5.40). The characters that ultimately survive until the end are shown as being removed from women in some shape or form, as Michael Long states, “The young saviour, Malcolm, is not only a man but a man ‘yet/Unknown to woman’; the avenging warrior, Macduff, is not only a man but a man not ‘of woman born’” (Long -64). The definition of man that is developed puts the male gender on a pedestal, making them out to be brave and strong, with endless cruelty and few grains of kindness.
The overall meaning of “A Fit of Rhyme Against Rhyme” is that poets, should rather than ignore rhyme, accept it as something that has importance and tolerate its presence. The poem, A Fit of Rhyme Against Rhyme, by Edgar Allan Poe, states,” All good poetry hence was flown / And art banish’d, (Jonson line 14-15)” which has a tone of being disappointed since poetry seemed to evolve and all the originality seemed to disappear in the authors perspective. The text that shows a tone of frustration would be when it says, “Not a line deserving praise, / Pallas frowning, (Jonson line 29-30)” because with all the change, he doesn’t like the fact that they keep creating new forms of doing poetry and not considering the old way of rhyme. The tone hopeful
