The scarlet, red letter on Hester’s chest melts with her unbreakable and iron individuality. “On a field sable, the letter A gules”, or “On a black background, the scarlet letter burns”, means that even surrounded with all the darkness and not accepted by the society, Hester’s pride sparkles and is not unseen. "Blackness of your sin,Hester Prynne," said the clergyman….” The sin of adultery is seen as black, as evil and as a devilish act by the members of the Puritan society. But by embroidering the scarlet letter in gold, Hester gives it holiness and purity, showing them that the child in her is a product of love and is pure and nothing to be ashamed

Good Morning Mrs Menhert, Good morning Classmates today I will discuss my topic which was Analyse how the different characters in Of Mice and Men react to their broken dreams. Throughout the novel, several of John Steinbeck’s characters have to experience the pain of realising their dreams can in no way come true. However, due to their distinctly different personalities, their reactions are not similar, some like those of Curley and His wife are extremely emotional, while others like George's reaction, can be seen as indifferent. These varying reactions can be closely linked to the five stages of grief, each character posing as a personified version of a stage of grief as they grieve the loss of their respective dreams. George, one of the
When Montag reevaluates his life after Clarisse’s comment, he realizes he is unhappy. He starts to notice how wrong and unhappy the rest of his community is, too. Montag tries to find happiness by exposing books. He also finds happiness with Granger and the other intellectual men that no longer reside in the city. Another theme in Fahrenheit 451 is censorship and political correctness.
Abigail also tries to get John to acknowledge that he, at least, used to lust for her by calling him out on, “sweating like a stallion whenever I come near,”. The second sin that Abigail commits is Envy. Envy is defined as the desire to have an item/experience that someone else possesses. In Abigail’s case, she envies Elizabeth for being John’s wife. “It is her dearest hope, John, I know it.
Within the novella Of Mice and Men, written by John Steinbeck, characters have trouble forming meaningful relationships, which cause them to live lonely lives because of their own insecurities, society, or because of someone else and events in one's past. To start off, Curley struggles to bond with the men in the bunkhouse, and his own wife. Being a good friend to someone means that you support them, have their back, and are able to have a good time with them. However, he has trouble following those guidelines because he is blinded by his own jealousness and desires. He continually tries to intimidate any individual that he is threatened by.
Similarly, Hawthorne uses symbolism of sin in The Scarlet Letter and “The Minister’s Black Veil” to display the negative effects of guilt and sin. Hawthorne uses symbolism in The Scarlet Letter to convey a deeper meaning about the sins the characters have committed. Symbols such as the ‘A’ Hester Prynne is forced to wear on her chest, and the mysterious mark on Dimmesdale’s chest are used to represent the sins the characters committed. When the Puritans of Hester’s community look at her, all they see is sin due to the red letter on her chest. Hawthorne describes this scene as, “Thus the young and pure would be taught to look at her, with the scarlet letter flaming on her breast,—at her, the child of honorable parents,—at her, the mother of a babe, that would hereafter be
She had told him that she loved him, and Tom Buchanan saw.” Daisy’s and Gatsby’s desire for eachother is so strong and evident that you can just tell by the way they look at eachother. It was so strong in fact that with a couple words and gaze Tom was able to discover their affair which lead to the tragic happenings later in the story and ultimately their downfall. Infidelity is also evident in a streetcar named desire. Although, unlike the characters in "The Great Gatsby", the act of infidelity is less obvious. Characters like Blanche merely demonstrate her ability to cheat if she wanted to.
We also see a quick glimpse of anti-homosexual protests on a TV screen. Through these images Hozier is using the rhetorical strategy, Pathos. He is pressing to prove that being anti-gay is absolutely worst than being a homosexual. Another example of a Rhetorical Strategy being used is the language Hozier uses in the lyrics, which are very powerful. Judging by the way he describes her, Hozier reference’s this lover in third person, similar to the way we would with God or someone of higher power, and he worships her the same way you would worship a kind of religion.
The dish is red because it is a symbol of marriage and marriage is held together by love and that is what the red represents.
