In the short story “The destructors”, Graham Greene writes about a gang of young people in London around an era of war. Throughout the story Greene uses all types of rhetorical devices to give the story emptiness feel. The use of imagery and symbolism were great factors in order to accomplish in the short story is to help convey the sense of hollowness that accompanies London in the wake of the bombing in World War II. We can see this because the imagery used throughout the short story is imitated in the employment of destruction. The bombed out parking lot, where the gang uses for meeting is an example of imagery.
When someone dies they are brought to the incinerator and everyone seems like nothing happened. This is a warning because in the future violence could be over used and part of life, but no one would notice because violent actions would be used everyday. Secondly, in Fahrenheit 451 violence is amusing to their society. The government wants to put on a good show for everyone to enjoy. “The search is over, Montag is dead; a crime against society has been avenged.” (Bradbury 142).

Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I’ve watched c-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain. Time to die.” Batty pierces Deckard’s blind hopes by these sentences, transmitting to Deckard a massage that people’s lives are only “tears in rain.” This soliloquy reminds people of Nietzsche again: in Thus Spoke Zarathustra, Zarathustra speaks: “My death I praise to you, the free death which comes to me because I want it. And when shall I want it?
Seven is a crime mystery film about two detectives played by Brad Pitt and Morgan Freeman. Detective William Somerset is soon retiring because he is tired of his unpleasant living in such a corrupt city and he is training his replacement, Detective David Mills. Throughout the film, the two are chasing a serial killer who designs his killings off the Christian seven deadly sins: lust, gluttony, greed, sloth, wrath, envy, and pride. He believes he is doing God’s good work by “turning each sin against their sinner.” Fincher again began this film with revealing opening credits of diaries and strange belongings that turn out to be owned by John Doe, our serial killer. Fincher also utilizes close-ups of non-speaking faces \to show characters processing information.
This is mainly because the first hour or so is a big set up for the main plot. Some of the best moments that follow are echoes of The Great Dictator, in which Chaplin ridiculed fascism. Unfortunately, the worst moments reminded me of a justly forgotten Jerry Lewis comedy from 1972, The Day the Clown Cried, about a clown whose job was to entertain Jewish children on their way to the gas chambers. I can well understand why anyone might be offended by Benigni 's portrait of a concentration camp. The brutality, racism and hopelessness are all underplayed.
Poe’s distinct explanations of imagery really put images into the readers head. As Montresor and Fortunato enter “the foot of the descent and stood together on the damp ground of the catacombs of the Montresors” (Poe), Poe explains the scene of where Montresor and Fortunato are at the moment, and paints the picture perfectly for the reader. Poe’s skilled use of imagery is a reason for his popularity when he was gone, and these quotes explain the pictures Poe can put into readers
After the explosion, as ash rains down through the air, a new atmosphere has suddenly set over the town. Though this town is primarily set by the orchestral music and the flames licking at the building, it is the constant present of ash and embers that set the mood across every frame. Each flake of ash has been individually drawn and directed across the screen, with attention paid to even the changing colors of the ash as embers burn out into dust. These small constant details are present throughout the film, creating a silent atmosphere that’s powerful to our instincts, but invisible to our eyes, formed by the clouds moving in the sky, the small storms of rain or snow that crowd the story, and even in moving grass among the country roads. These individual details, which would normally be elements of the natural environment where the film takes place, show the intense amount of attention that goes into every piece of motion in animation, where the amount of control and dedication that we have over these details could previously only arise in animation before the advent of CGI technology that we have
