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.
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.
Script for IOP Rationale I chose to do my IOP as a TV show because I think that it is a good way of explaining the ideas in the poetry written by Sylvia Plath. My inspiration came from YouTube channels such as CrashCourse and tv shows such as Voices from the Air. I strongly believe that a creative presentation like this will help in the process of explaining the poem “Totem” than doing a purely analytical presentation. Thank you!
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.
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)
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.
The Pequot Tribal Nation criticize the Puritans by highlighting their brutality. One man remarks that the Puritans must "’destroy them by the Sword and save the Plunder’" (“The Pequot War”). Similarly, Flynn makes direct attacks on Zinn, stating that “This melodrama depends on simplistically dividing mankind into two groups – and only two: oppressors and oppressed. This is how Zinn describes and utterly distorts the early settlement of North America” (Flynn). He also calls A People’s History of the United States a “devious narrative”
One of Wiesel 's strengths in Night is to show the full face of dehumanization. It is something that the Nazis perpetrated against the people they imprisoned. The tattooing of numbers on the prisoners, something that Eleizer notes, is of extreme importance. A- 7713 is by definition an example of dehumanization because it robs the humanity of the individual. The abuses that the Nazis perpetrate on their prisoners is another example of dehumanization.
In every one of us, there is a savage monster. A monster, that, in our vulnerability, will silently kill off the good parts of ourselves. Lord of the Flies by William Golding is about a group of British boys who must survive on an island after their plane crashes. From the story, it is clear that the monsters inside us can destroy the bonds we work so hard to make. This is shown through symbolism, like the fire, which represents the fear in the group, the boys, which represents how humanity has corrupted the world we live in, and the Lord of the Flies, which represents the monster inside of us and how it affects our lives.
What makes human nature destructive? War could make a huge difference in human nature, changing it from being a civilized human into a savage. These changes can bring a catastrophic destructiveness in a society. In Lord of the Flies by William Golding, uses themes of how easy human nature can change leading it to collapse and be very self-destructive to itself and others. Some of the aspects that were found in the novel are destruction, demoralization, and panic.
The said memoir is also introduced without enough analysis, and the introduction overall lacks any clear statement of theme, although it does state that the themes from each piece connect in some vague way. The methods of improvement for these aspects of my essay are similar to those already said - the addition of transitions will make the essay less choppy to read, and planning early in the writing process will help with the flow and meshing of ideas, as well as clear statements as to topic and
