From his experience in the Negro League and discrimination, to running away from home and his prison time, to his life with Rose and his son Cory, Troy has learned some hard lessons, lessons that, as time goes on and become less true, he still feels responsible to his children to teach them. I believe Troy feels a constant, crushing responsibility to his family, and that what he sees as his “duty” to them leads him to make bad decisions. The first and foremost thing anyone thinks of when they hear the name “Troy Maxson” is along the lines of: Oh I know him, he cheated on his wife, but as we look deeper we can understand, if not agree with, his reasons for doing so.

I ain’t gotta worry about how I’m gonna pay the bills or get the roof fixed.” (Wilson page 68-69).
• Metaphor is well used in the story “The Ones Who Walk Away from Omelas” written by Ursula K. Le Guin. Metaphor is a comparison stated in such a way as to imply that one object is another one. Guin uses a lot of metaphors in the beginning of the story to help build the setting of Omelas. “Children dodged in and out, their high calls rising like the swallows’ crossing flights over the music and the singing.” (Lines 7-8, Guin). Guin is comparing the excessive joy to the behavior of a swallow bird.

Gallimard believes that Song “is outwardly bold and outspoken, yet her heart is shy and afraid. It is the Oriental in her at war with her Western education” (Hwang 27). Song, after all, cannot jump out from the character of the timid Oriental Butterfly and her inferior position. This conception motivates Gallimard’s desire of being the “foreign devil” and starts to drive him to deliberately do a cruel experiment on Song (Hwang 31). In addition to catching his Butterfly, Gallimard aims to bear witness this butterfly is willing to “writhe on a needle” for him like Cio-Cio-San (Hwang 31).

The rhyming couplets are sometimes called "heroic" couplets, but our title character is anything but heroic. The rhymes also have a singsong quality that makes them seem childish. One of the most prominent formal characteristics of this work is the use of refrains. Prufrock’s continual return to the “women [who] come and go / Talking of Michelangelo” and his recurrent questionings (“how should I presume?”) and pessimistic appraisals (“That is not it, at all.”) help describe the consciousness of a neurotic individual. Prufrock 's obsessiveness is a sign of compulsiveness and isolation.
Emily Dickinson’s poem often repeats features such as capitals, dashes, short phrases, and onomatopoeia. The poem’s elements include figurative language, metaphors, euphony. There are three stanzas including different elements and meaning. “Hope” is the thing with feathers - That perches in the soul - And sings the tune without the words - And never stops - at all - And sweetest - in the Gale - is heard - And sore must be the storm - That could abash the little Bird That kept so many warm - I’ve heard it in the chilliest land - And on the strangest Sea - Yet - never - in Extremity, It asked a crumb - of me. She compares hope to a flying bird.

Huck leaves the boat feeling guilty for thinking of turning him in, yet he’s still convinced that he has to do it, so he goes and continues on his way. He runs into two slave catchers, who ask to check the boat, which would’ve been the easiest way for Huck to turn him in. However, Huck feels obligated to protect Jim, and convinces the slave catchers that it’s his sick father in the boat, evading the capture of Jim. In this moment, Huck starts to question the ideas of society, thinking to himself, “What’s the use you learning to do the right when it’s troublesome to do right and ain 't’ no trouble to do wrong, and the wages is just the same?” (119). What he’s known to be right doesn’t seem right to him anymore, and he’s starting to question his own moral compass.
