We will see how desire and violence play out in the play through the processes of translation. Violence and desire are tightly linked in the play and nearly inseparable. Is it the desire to destroy a culture and a language or the desire to mingle and learn the language of the stranger ?To try to find an answer to that problem, we will study how the processes of translation show the destruction and the abandon of a language. The desire to colonize and destroy the Gaelic language is a main theme in the play. First, the process of translation is used by Owen to convey the message of the English soldiers to the small community of Baile Beag.
Donald Bruce Dawe’s literature makes society cognisant on the painful realities that are of the raw and dehumanising truth that plague this world. Donald Bruce Dawe, an Australian poet. His literature is predicated unto the dehumanising and defamatory experiences that he, the inditer himself had experienced through his time in the army, the RAAF. Though his literature, he conveys an opinionated point-of-view, urging the audience to optically discern the exploited and flawed practices of the regime. It is the truth obnubilated from society by propaganda and word of mouth, Dawe pushes the theme time and time again that authenticity is a painful experience, and that war is erroneous, wasteful, dehumanising.
Thus, the identity of the persona in the poem is created with the limitations felt by the persona. Once again, the themes: surveillance, entrapment and gender representations are a common characteristic in Plath’s poetry such as Munich Mannequins and
The use of imagery to describe trenches in both texts plays a big role in building up the theme that war destroys innocence and youth. For example, in Sassoon 's "Suicide in the Trenches", the phrase 'winter trenches ' is paired with words such as glum and lice, both of which have a negative connotation. (Sassoon, 5-6.) Sassoon also uses imagery to portray the front/the trenches as hell, and explicitly states that that is where youth, innocence, and laughter go to "die" because war destroys a person mentally, even if it doesn 't physically them. (Sassoon, 12.)
Pathos is “the quality of speech or written work that appeals to the emotions of the audience.” For instance, “plundered our seas, ravaged our Coasts, burnt our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people.” The words ravaged, and destroyed are emotional words to describe the unjust actions the king did to them. Also it is demonstrated in, “Cruelty & perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the Head of a civilized nation.” This proves the colonists opinions on the king, showing how he is not worthy to lead their uprising nation. Ethos is “the character and credibility of the writer in the eyes of the reader.” An example of this is, “We, therefore, the Representatives of the United States of America, in General Congress, Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions..”. The author shows their credibility by stating they are representatives of the United States of America. The authors also portrayed this by, “In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms.” By saying this, the authors show they have tried to set agreed terms with
"Bigotry or prejudice in any form is more than a problem; it is deep-seated evil within our society" (..) It is in Harper Lee’s “How To Kill A Mockingbird.” that the issue of Prejudice is shown throughout the novel. It is apparent in the novel which exhibits the unethical idea of individuals, particularly
Furthermore, Ms. Plath represents her husband as a burglar, who “ransacks the land” just in the manner as a panther ambush a parcel of hogs. The gruesome imagery and the excessive chauvinism from a male-criticizing perspective are highly inflammatory for the classroom environment. This subjectiveness of emotive lingers on in Ms. Plath as can be seen in hers “Mad Girl’s Love Song”. The wild imagery presenting “an arbitrary blackness galloping” into a civilized ballroom fragments the destructive subjectiveness contained in Ms. Plath. The internal emotions of world destruction on the stance of a broken relationship shows the unstable insight in Ms. Plath’s mind and her appalling emotions hints to a depressing character.
Claggart as naturally depraved: “depravity which marks the whole of the fallen human condition” This quote and specific word choice used by Melville point out John Claggart’s natural evil. The definition of natural depravity is a state of corruption due to original sin. This justifies how claggart is naturally evil. b. "soft yearning, as if Claggart could even have loved Billy but for fate and ban" (Melville 73) The specific word choice of fate means that Claggart had already been determined to apprehend Billy and in turn sabotage him for mutiny.
Carol Ann Howells speaks about Atwood’s technique as, Obviously revisionist perspectives have narrative consequences not only for narrators but also for readers, turning our attention towards process of deconstruction and reconstruction while emphasizing the provisionality of any narrative structure. Atwood’s novels are characterized by their refusals to invoke any final authority as their open endings resist conclusiveness, offering instead hesitation, absence or silence while hovering on the verge of new possibilities. Their indeterminacy is a challenge
Reprisal can degenerate; requital can transform a decent heart into unadulterated malice. It changes your identity, it adulterates the psyche, it makes you visually impaired, all retribution hurts you and others, and no good thing originates from vindicate. It makes you detestable and before you know it has transformed you into the individual you pledged never to wind up, it slaughters your spirit until there is not all that much yet a spirit brimming with abhor and fiendish. One character that knows exact retribution the best and knows how it can obliterate your life is Hamlet, his spirit is gone and there is only loathe left in his life, he has really lost everything and everybody. If not for the murder of Old Hamlet, Claudius would be viewed as an astute, maybe even considerate ruler.
