One of those was an old letter which was from his mother to his father. She mentioned that she was grateful that Armand would never find out that his mother belongs to the race that is cursed with the brand of slavery. It turned out that Armand had the black gene that caused his son’s skin to be darker, not because of Desiree even though that nobody knew her origins. The author uses symbols, theme, and irony to develop the short story. A symbol is a letter, figure, or other character or mark or a combination of letters or the like used to designate something (Dictionary).
Misogyny is a theme throughout most literature work for centuries. Robert Browning in “My Last Duchess,” is a monologue about a duke who is from Ferrara, Italy. In the poem, the duke is talking to a nobleman whom is the father of his future wife. The duke explains why he murdered his previous wife who was just seventeen years old and is warning the matchmaker and his future wife that if she does not remain obedient, then the duke will not hesitate to murder her either. Andrew Marvel in “His Coy Mistress,” writes a monologue about a man wanting to have sex with a shy woman before marriage.
Irony is defined as a technique that involves surprising, interesting, or amusing contradictions or contrasts (“A Glossary....” 1). The author talks about how Armand is getting rid of Desiree’s things as they are no longer together. He then discovers some letters that he concluded to be hers when he noticed one in the very back. He reads the letter and discovers that it was his mother writing to his father. The letter read, “… I thank God for having so arranged our lives that our dear Armand will never know that his mother, who adores him, belongs to the race that is cursed with the brand of slavery” (Chopin 5).
It turns out that the baby is of mixed race and Armand blames Desiree. In the end Armand tells Desiree to leave with her baby. Once she does, Armand finds out that his mother was really a slave, when he found a letter that was for his father and so he was the one who caused his child to be mixed. In “Desiree’s Baby”, Kate Chopin uses themes, characters, and symbols to develop the short story. The first literary device is theme which is the message about life or human nature that is “the focus” in the story that the writer tells (Glossary...3).

This is what happened a few years later, when Elizabeth banished Raleigh because he married her maid without her permission. Moreover, Steven W. May in “The Elizabethan Courtier Poets: the poems and their contexts” affirmed that Raleigh wrote this poem when he was close to the Queen Elizabeth I, but he fear to be abandoned by the Queen who was beginning to prefer the Earls of Essex. The fear of abandonment is expressed in “Fortune hath taken away my Love” This poem is strictly related to the courtship and to his relationship with the Queen because it evokes the same Fortune that Elizabeth has mentioned in “Written on a Window Frame at Woodstock”. Raleigh explains that he is just another victim of fortune because Essex is superior to him as well as the Queen Mary was superior to Elizabeth when she imprisoned her. By affirming that they are both victims of bad fortune, he is attempting to attract the attention of the Queen in order to regain his position of
