Out of all of the different parts of the Silence Dogood letters, the actual content of the letters was the most important. The content is what kept the newspaper readers interested and what gave Ben his success in writing. There were 14 letters and each one was published in The New England Courant. Silence’s first letter was a letter of information on her background and her purpose for writing the letters. It told about her history of being born on a ship headed to Boston and the death of her father who died on that same trip.
It considers use of words for the purpose of evoking sensory encounters for the reader. These experiences, range from sound, appearance, touch and other senses. Poem 46 the poet states ‘Disavowal, says the silence’ then further in poem 47 she states ‘I wonder, as I steer my car through the forest of gargantuan billboards, ghostly palm trees, and light-fattened boulevards that have become my life’ line 2. The poet is in this sense trying to engage the reader through the sense of sight or appearance and sound. To the persona silence is a form of rejection then through that silence the poet goes on to illustrate the silence in which the persona is driving in to engage the senses of the reader she speaks of the gigantic billboards, ghost palm trees and further continues how the situation has become the personas life line.
Silence is the events that could have had an impact on the good of the future but never happened. In other words, the things that should have been done but weren’t. In Night, silence is demonstrated by using this quote. “I pinched my face. Was I still alive?
The sound of silence in this song symbolizes a person’s brain and their personal thoughts with meaning. The character in this song speaks of a dream he had in the first verse and in the lines that follow the effects the vision had, “And the vision that was planted in my brain/ Still remains/ Within the sound of silence (Simon and Garfunkel).” The lyricists purposely mention the metaphor “the vision that was planted in my brain” in the first verse before saying “within the sound of silence” to clue the listener into realizing the sound of silence throughout the song represents a person’s mind. These lines foreshadow the influence of media and emptiness into the character’s mind before it happens. The end of the next verse mentions the sound of silence as well after the character has his first encounter with the neon light, or the media. The character says that the brush with the media “touched the sound of silence (Simon and Garfunkel).” The lyricists cleverly included this line to indicate that the media has begun to taint people’s minds and thoughts.
In such inactivity and silence we can feel the strength of humanity. The poem begins on a note of meditation and introspection. The readers are asked to count to twelve as a start to an exercise of meditation and then sit still. This is a start to make the readers to talk to themselves in no rush of life and no noise of engines. The poet signifies this moment of silence to be exotic.

A world completely different from the where the protagonists are coming from. There is a close resemblance of the spatial difference which are displayed by the characters of the movie, where on one side in Do Bigha Zameen Shambhu and his son Kanhaiya enter as complete strangers to the city, on the other hand in Upkar Bharat’s younger brother Puran (character played by Prem Chopra) turn stranger to the rural once he comes back from his urban space. The estranged feeling showcased by the characters are very much connected to the space they come from, where Shambhu who is rural farmer tries to carries his values and ethics to a place which does not have a high regard for his integrity. While in another movie Upkar Puran distinctly show how the glitzy and glamour of urban life makes Puran blind of the integrity and dignity which his brother Bharat carried. So, in the both the movies the uncanny, hostile surrounding of the urban space is displayed in the movie.
“ The Sounds of Silence” by Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel presents a deep understanding and meaning of the topic that people lack the ability to communicate. Peoples thoughts are ordered by the media and forget about the true meaning of their own voices. Simon and Garfunkel represent this through the use of figurative language and poetic techniques which served really well to their song. Darkness is sometimes described as a depressive state to those who can't confide in no one and are all alone. In the first two lines, “Hello darkness my old friend/ I’ve come to talk with you again.”(1-2) describes mainly the key theme of this song, the lack of ability to communicate with other people.
