They show the narrator’s thought-provoking opinions and indirect form of imagery. Though not describing something tangible or visible they create a vivid image of what it means to try and hide something behind words. That the more words they know to talk about their private sufferings the less so they have to confront it since it is behind a wall of words that may not even be true. The last two lines of the poem, “A train whistles through the far hills. One day I plan to be riding it.” , exhibits a picture of a train in rolling hills far away while whistling and gives the reader a sense of determination.
However, this quickly becomes evident through a further examination of the poem. This is artfully done through references to the “iron horse” or the train. In the poem, it states, “And neigh like Boanerges” and “At its own stable door” (Dickinson) Horses “neigh” and sleep in “stables”; suggesting that the “it” that Dickinson refers to may be of an equine family. Or, in this case, a machine that is bigger, and better than the horse. Additionally, the “it” is described “feed itself at tanks” and it can “lick the Valleys up” (Dickinson), this wording allows for the reader to assume the “it” may be mechanical because it feeds itself at tanks, and can “lick up valleys”.
The light source in Marie Josephine Charlotte du val d’Ognes comes through a cracked window and outside there is a man and women who seem to be in a relationship which directly contrasts The Love Letter. The art during the Rococo time period was themed in love and romantics, and the Neoclassical time period drew back and encouraged realistic elements and stripped its scenes of sentimentality which is deliberately expressed through the couple through the broken glass window. These beautiful effects illuminate their
It is fascinating how both writers, Milton and Shelley, created heroes with parallel position to their anti-heroes. The reader can be besides any of them according to his interaction and feelings towards the story. The same remark the critics, mainly the romantics, made about Milton’s principal character or hero in his poem: was it the source of evil or the divinity? Mary recreated the same debate but this time with intention to make the reader sympathize with evil. The reader is in reality not sure who makes harm to the other: the scientist or the monster.
Augustus Egg’s “The Travelling Companion” portrays two young women sitting in opposite direction inside a moving train carriage. The painting is almost symmetrical as there are many similarities between the two ladies. However, there are also subtle differences between them which enforces the main themes of this painting through symbolism adding layers of meaning in its reading. This painting was created in 1862 during the Victorian era, a time when industrialization took place, and hence having trains as a background in the painting. Although industrialization brought better income to the society, the people were dissatisfied with the government as it was moribund.
For example, Wordsworth compares ”She”(1) to a “violet”(5) in contrast to the “mossy stone”(5). The violet can be interpreted as standing out while a mossy stone has the connotation of dullness, ordinary, which emphasised through the useage of visual imagery. Another instance where he utilises imagery is when he is comparing her standing out to him like “a star, when only one/is shining in the sky” (7-8). As stars are a part of the night sky, it not only represents imagery but also shows his feelings towards her. Similarly, Yeats compares the beauty of his love to the beauty of nature.
John Erman brings the tragic story of Blanche DuBois to life in the 1984 film A Streetcar Named Desire. With his use of music, lighting, decoration, costume, common themes and conflict, the theme of reality versus fantasy is effectively portrayed to the audience. A Streetcar Named Desire opens with a soft piano tune, despite the harshness of the film later, and the harshness of the actual reasons for Blanche’s arrival. The opening is an example of the music portraying the fantasy, while the actual scene is much heavier in reality. Another example of this is when Blanche recounts to Mitch the story of her and her dead husband.
Elizabeth is on the right side of the frame (our view) and the door is open on the left side of the frame. However Elizabeth is asking Lionel to counsel Bertie with his stutter as he has lost hope. The open door signifies the honesty of the discussion between Elizabeth and Lionel and helps to express the message of the frame. In comparison the King’s Speech is saturated with dull colours, off centered camera shots and close up images. These elements help us to understand and relate to the emotions of all the characters.
The human body is physiologically made up of primarily three qualities. People paint each one in their own way; The conscious mind holds its walls up towards reality and rational occurances, while behind that layer is the unconscious mind that pushes the boundaries of our reality --perhaps even supernatural beings -- and both of these are tied to the soul: the purity and core existence for homosapians. Thus, this idea gets expanded on--even crosses the line--during the short story “The Fall of the House of Usher” by Edgar Allan Poe. During the story, the narrator goes to visit his ill friend Roderick Usher in his home and while there, he experiences rather bizarre situations that is merely brushed away until the very arch at the end of the story. This story brings along the imagination, and those qualities of the conscious
Jordan represents Fitzgerald 's theme of decay. She shows the corruption of the American dream and the decay of morality in the 1920s. Jordan’s significance in the novel is to play love interest for Nick and to tell us the story of Gatsby and Daisy. She is the one who is always there seeming to lurk and is very observant. She serves the purpose of filling in plot holes for the reader and an explanation to things that are unknown to us as the readers.
