Analysis of “Sympathy” In the 20th century poem “Sympathy” Paul Laurence Dunbar uses imagery, irony, and repetition to develop the three shifting tones. In addition, he points out that without freedom individuals will feel trapped and wounded. Throughout stanza one, Dunbar uses rhyme, repetition, and imagery to convey a tone of innocence. Imagery of a bird singing and the first bud of flowers opening gives us a visual representation of pleasure and being born new, thereby, a feeling of innocence. In the repeating line “I know how the caged bird feels,” to emphasize the pleasure of freedom that the bird feels.
The amount of effort you are willing to put into your work, contributes to the results you achieve. In the story, Horton sacrificed his time for Mayzie and the egg, despite being caught in terrible weather conditions, taunted by his friends for “trying to be a bird”, and nearly being shot by a group of hunters. At the end, because Horton remained faithful to his promise, the “elephant-bird” that hatched turned out to become his child, and not Mayzie’s, who gave birth to him. Seuss enforces the idea of dedication and effort by repeating “it should be, it should be, it SHOULD be like that!” (Seuss 28), emphasizing that those who work harder should achieve better
Brian Doyle, the author of “Joyas Voladoras,” passionately writes about hearts due to his own experiences with his son, who was born with only three chambers in his heart. In his short story, “Joyas Voladoras,” Doyle further discusses hearts and the symbolic meaning they possess. Through examples with hummingbirds, whales, and people, he is able to convey that feeling vulnerable is a part of life. He discusses vulnerability through multiple situations: how it exists while taking risks, how it exists while seeking companionship, and how it is exists due to harsh realities of the current world. In “Joyas Voladoras,” Doyle suggests that the heart is constantly in a state of vulnerability.
Persuasive Essay In the novel The Outsiders by S.E Hinton, a situation occurs and a decision has to be made that can change Ponyboy’s life forever. Some would argue that he should stay with his loving brothers, others would argue that he should be sent into the system. Sending Ponyboy into the system may be a good idea in some ways, but he should ultimately stay with his brothers.

The novel illustrates how Jody’s sense of responsibility helps him to resolve his conflict between meeting his own need to raise the fawn, and meeting his family’s need for survival.

By examining the childhood scene, us as viewers can begin to fathom how context affected Kane’s insanity. Mr Welles uses deep focus and the framing of the window as Kane’s father physically shuts Kane out to be ‘seen but not heard’ to allude to can emotional separation between the characters. Through a postmodern view of Kane wee see that he is a victim of heavy childhood trauma, do you all agree? As you can all hear Orson Welles uses specific positive musical motif to enhance the happiness in Kane’s life, Rosebud. The simulacrum of Rosebud, allows Kane to remind himself when he felt loved by his family and was happy without and material wealth.
Deciding to take matters into his own hands, Tom ran for it even though he knew there were high risks of him being killed, which shows how the caged bird in the poem “Caged Bird” is much like him. In the poem “Caged Bird” by Maya Angelou, the caged bird is compared and contrasted to a free bird and by examining the circumstances of Tom Robinson’s life, I say that he is very much like the caged bird. For instance, in stanza two it’s stated “His wings are clipped and/ His feet are tied/ So he opens his throat to sing.” If we compare the bird’s wings to Tom Robinson’s hope, the feet to his heart, and his action of running to the action of opening his throat to sing, we can visualize the song that Tom Robinson would sing, one about him losing hope and not wanting anyone to control his life anymore, and so in this manner he is very much like the caged bird in this poem. Similarly, Tom Robinson’s physical struggles can be compared to the caged bird in the poem “Sympathy”. In the novel it’s written “Tom
No one ever would have imagined that a killer whale would want love and companionship from humans, because of the huge differences in both. This story opened my eyes and point of view on how all animals no matter big or small experience feelings and emotions like people. There have been several studies in history that demonstrated and show the evidence that animals go thru a lot of feelings we the people tent to go thru. According to a studied and report by Jonathan Balcombe “following the death of an infant, baboon mothers show physiological and behavioral responses that mirror those of bereft women. Glucocorticoid hormones — associated with grief in humans — rise and take a month to subside again, and the bereaved mother monkey seeks therapy by expanding her social network through increased grooming interactions with other baboons.
As mentioned before, carpe diem has been used throughout many different types of literature. Two prime examples are “To the Virgins, to Make Much of Time” by Robert Herrick and “To His Coy Mistress” by Andrew Marvell. Both poems focus on the sole idea of living life to the fullest, as well as being able to enjoy it. This is shown through many different lines in both poems. In “To the Virgins, to Make Much of Time” Herrick talks about enjoying life as you can, because life goes by faster than you may realize: “Gather ye rosebuds while ye may,/Old time is still a-flying”(lines 1-2).
One of the many aspects that Hosseini added to his novel is the symbol of the kite. Amir takes this kite as a symbol of happiness and also of guilt according to (http://www.sparknotes.com/lit/the-kite-runner/themes.html) (1).

In Doyle 's passage “Joyas Voladoras”, he uses metaphors through hearts to explain about life and love. This poetic passage is one that is deep even though it may be a little over two pages. Through the hummingbird, Doyle explains about such a precious fast-paced life that is very threatening and compares those lives to the life of a turtle who lives a very slow long life. Through the blue whale, Doyle explains about love with the largest heart in any mammal. Talking about hearts in general, Doyle explains to live every moment in our life.
Graph A represents recordings of a transient killer whale, whereas Graph B represents recordings of a resident killer whale. Both graphs show the changes in each whale type; one documents a drastic change over the course of four hours, while the other one—over the same amount of time—shows a more consistent pattern. A transient killer whale is represented in the first graph because, although a majority of the data shows the orca keeping to the higher points of the ocean, there are still points in which the orca dives to the bottom depth of the ocean, which would make sense due to the fact that this particular type of orca is known for preying on marine mammals. Based on the information in the chart, it could easily be assumed that they dwell closer to the top of the water, but when they are ready to feed, they dive to the
Everyday all around the world whales are being kept in captivity against their will. Sure, attraction parks such as Sea World are an amazing experience for everyone. Every child wishes to experience large mammals up close doing acrobatics, splashing, and interacting with the trainers. However, whales are not choosing to participate. They are being forced, and rewarded with food, love and attention.
