Through the means of Strike’s investigation we are introduced to a string of characters, from Lula and John’s terminally ill mother to their seemingly mean and heartless maternal uncle. Then there’s Guy Somé, Lula’s designer friend who featured her and her model friend Ciara Porter in a famous ad for his company. Adding more to the mysterious air, there is Rochelle, Lula’s pal from rehab. Not to forget her dysfunctional neighbors: an odious movie producer named Freddie Bestigui and his now-estranged wife, Tansy and a famous American rapper by the name of Deeby Macc. Strike interviews nearly everyone who knew Lula personally, right from her driver to the watchman to the Polish cleaner of the building where Lula stayed.
Kawabata simultaneously delves into Chikako’s individual flaws and appeals to her humanity to reinforce the idea of how, similar to traditional Japanese culture, Chikako obstructs a clear vision of the future. Kawabata reveals Chikako’s multifaceted nature as he reveals how she deals with the aftermath of her affair with Kikuji’s father. Such a rejection allows resentment to fester. However, Kawabata does not polarize the situation. For instance, Kawabata mentions: “upon [Kikuji’s] father’s death, it came to him that [Chikako] had repressed the woman in her after that one brief, fleeting affair” (Kawabata 13).
Furthermore, his belief was focused that one needs to participate in negative emotions to relieve the pain that he or she feels. Edgar Allan Poe creates a character in desperate need of aid in “The Fall of the House of Usher,” utilizing an aspect of art: music, to try and relieve Roderick of the pain he is dealing with a the solution to his suffering, but does not provide permanent relief. Art in “The Fall of the House of Usher” is structured to have Roderick arouse feelings of cheerfulness as he listens to music. For instance, his mental state was abnormal based on the narrator 's initial description, “He suffered much from a morbid acuteness of the senses; the most insipid food was alone endurable...could wear only garments of certain texture...flowers were oppressive...tortured by a faint light...and these from stringed instruments, which did not inspire him with horror” (Poe 164). The narrator 's depiction of Roderick portrays him
William Shakespeare’s "Sonnet 141" like many other sonnets is based on the theme of love. But in the sonnet 141, which will be analyzed in this paper, love is pictured as an inner conflict between mind and heart. In this sonnet, the speaker declares the discrepancy of the heart and mind, feelings and thoughts. The author emphasizes the conflict with the help of the negative images. In the first quatrain, he contrasts the real vision of his beloved, which does not correspond to the standard canons of beauty with the feeling of his heart that loves and accepts her.
The theme is made present in the characters lives and is revealed to the readers in many ways throughout the novel. The main protagonist of Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, Oskar Schell, copes with the grief from the tragedy of losing his father by focusing on something other than the loss of his dad. Oskar goes on a long adventure through the five boroughs of New York City in order to find out what a key he found opens. Oskar found the key when he broke a vase that belonged to his dad, and the key was in an envelope with the word “Black” written on the outside of it. After determining that the word “Black” was a last name, Oskar decided to “spend my Saturdays and Sundays finding all of the people named Black and learning what they knew about the key in the vase in Dad’s closet” (Foer 51).
The human experience is influenced by a series of emotions that affect how people act on an everyday basis. Two emotions that drive people toward severe actions include love and loneliness. O Henry illustrates the theme of how loneliness and love can make the human heart act in ways it would never normally act, in the short story “The Furnished Room”. Although the circumstances in the story may come across as far-fetched, the theme expressed in the story through O Henry’s descriptive word choice, figurative language and more provides a brilliant display of how love and loneliness can drive someone to do the most outrageous of things. Despite the tragic circumstances in the story, O Henry’s descriptive word choice serves as an aid to help people accurately interpret how the influence of love can affect our actions.
Throughout the passage from Chinua Achebe’s Things Fall Apart, Achebe meticulously integrates diction that evokes both strength and vulnerability, repetition of questions that Okonkwo asks himself, and a depressed tone from his point of view following Ikemefuna’s death. These methods enable Achebe to not only emphasize the importance of masculinity and unfair gender roles to Okonkwo and in Igbo society, but also to illuminate how Okonkwo’s perception of fear being associated with weakness and femininity eventually drives him into disbelief and remorse as well as reveals his insecurities. One of Achebe’s most evident devices in the passage is his use of diction tied with masculinity to elucidate the male dominance and distinct gender roles that exist among the people of Igbo. Okonkwo justifies his own manhood by recalling how he was known for his “valor in war” and for being the “man who has killed five men in battle”(Achebe 65). Although he is clearly disturbed from killing Ikemefuna, Okonkwo refuses to show any weakness or in his case, qualities resembling femininity that may affect his reputation as being powerful.
The author mentioned popular media people (like Rita Moreno) and literary characters (“Mammy” from Gone with the Wind) to show the source and the deepness of stereotypes. She includes dialogues and description of own ruefulness during the current event to create more emotion-oriented essay. Several main issues and single words are highlighted with the aid of italics, like the word ripen (Cofer 4) that showed boy’s expectances to Cofer’s sexual behavior. Was it author’s choice or not, the decision helps readers to see an important topic. The Myth of the Latin Woman explains the negative impact of stereotypes on Latin people from the point of view of the representative of this social group.
Though elaborated descriptions can lead to a sense of dreariness that causes readers to oversee important pieces that contributes to meaning, the use of sexual descriptions in action scenes are articulated with the perfect amount of narration, building mood and establishing tone to emphasize purpose. Subsequently, writing Simon as a Christ figure allows for Golding to exaggerate the contrast between his innocence and the brutality of his murder. Finally, driving thematic development through the symbol of the conch enables readers to grasp the purpose that Golding conveys in a more easily understandable yet artistic way. The novel brings forth a dystopian view of not only certain individuals, but the society as a whole as well through the maturation and descend of these young boys into the primitive evil that resides within mankind. With effective incorporation of Golding’s style, it enables him to trace the defects of society to the defects of human nature; afterall, the beast cannot be easily killed, is it part of
Companies make considerable investments for the sole purpose of matching their brands with the relevant celebrity endorser, perfectly. Furthermore, a huge decline in the productivity and effectiveness of other marketing communication tools (Blondé & Roozen, 2006) has led to the firms wanting to pay whatever ridiculous amounts of fee these celebrities demand for endorsing their product. Since there is an enormous impact of celebrity endorsement on the profitability and image of the firm (Endorgan, 2001), the continuous involvement of the senior management in the decision-making process can be seen regarding which famous personality to select to endorse their product. Due to the considerable costs involved in hiring celebrities, it becomes essential for the marketing and advertising managers to not only form a proper link between the quality and characteristics of the endorser with the endorsed brand's equity (Dwivedi, Lester & McDonald, 2015) but to also identify any other variables, determinants or factors which play an influential role between the relationship of endorser credibility and brand equity. "Brand schematicity" has therefore been adopted in this study as the third variable, to assess its impact on the former two
