(23) Clarification: This quote clarifies to the reader that the woman is legitimately just giving Taylor the child. This is a turning point in the novel and this quote accurately represents the change clearly. Taylor was trying to not get herself in situations like these which also shows the author’s choice of irony “The clouds were pink and fat and hilarious-looking, like the hippo ballerinas in a Disney movie..that in place of trees there were all these puffy-looking rocks shaped like roundish animals and roundish people. Rocks stacked on top of one another like piles of copulating potato bugs.”(47)
Marigolds Marigold Marigolds the book Marigolds was a very interesting Story From the author Eugenia Collier. The genre of the book was a Short Story And it was fiction. But to me the book was about there is beauty in life if you can find it. The first theme to me was when she was talking about herself when she was young. For example She Said “When I think of the hometown of my young all that I seem to remember is dust-brown crumbly dust of late summer- arid sterile dust that the eyes and makes them water, get into the throat, and between the toes of my bare brown feet.
In Ray bradbury’s All Summer in a Day that takes place on Venus jealousy can lead to worse things such as bullying. kids hurt others when they don't get their way. kids do bad things such as destroying things that aren’t theirs such as a human's hope.the kids make fun of a Margot's poem in the story because she had been on earth in Ohio. the kids lock Margot in the closet because she was remembering the sun from earth. Margot was made fun of because she had seen the sun.
The Flowers is the most descriptive short story of the three stories that have been read. The author of The Flowers easily could have stated that Myop carried a stick around and poked chickens with it, however she really said, “Myop carried a short, knobby stick.” This extra demonstration of description shows that Alice Walker was putting extra meaning into the story to spice it up a little bit. In addition, another way The Flowers is the most descriptive story is because in The Sniper, the author introduces the armored car and doesn’t do a very good job of putting a picture of the vehicle in the reader's head. Liam O’Flaherty said, “Just then an armored car came across the bridge.” This quote from The Sniper shows that The Sniper is not quite
Rather than looking back on the events surrounding dying like in the two previous poems, Emily attempts to describe the unknown experience of a mind facing its own collapse, “The Brain” representing both the concrete physical organ as well as the abstract idea of the speaker’s mind. In “I felt a Funeral, in my Brain,” Emily focuses more on the pain, loss, and panic of death, contrasting with the usual acceptance and readiness for one’s departure from life that she previously wrote about. This poem also extends to the idea of death in the mind, relating to both Emily’s usual topic of physically dying as well as the thought of losing one’s reason and sanity. This poem dramatizes the speaker’s growing fears and mental instability primarily through the use of sound, describing an attack of the speaker’s senses, mind, and sanity. Near the end, the sounds of the poem have grown increasingly louder and more menacing as the breakdown of both the mind and death itself creep upon the speaker.
If this poem is read literally, it is incredibly repulsive, as it talks about eating tongues and hearts in a cannibalistic nature.When read figuratively, however, the poem is seemingly understandable and somewhat humorous. The speaker uses a tongue and a heart to characterize her sister’s and brother’s issues with the speaker. The “small bones and gristle” (3) of the tongue indicate a sharp speaker, capable of conceiving sarcastic retorts. This description sounds harsh, and causes the reader to feel uneasy. She goes on to say, "it will probably grow back" (6), indicating that even if her sister’s attitude is resolved for a little while, it will come back.
Confinement and women meet once again. In “The Chrysanthemums,” John Steinbeck uses the story of Eliza and her flowers to portray the confinement that she feels; the theme of confinement is found throughout the entire short story. Steinbeck shows Eliza’s confinement using vivid imagery. In this work, the reader gets a glimpse of Elisa feeling free and alive but this is shutdown by the reiterated fact that Elisa is confined primarily because she is a women. The idea of confinement can be seen through the images that the author puts forth for the reader.
“Again, as if her mother’s agonized gesture were meant only to make sport for her, did little Pearl look into her eyes, and smile!” (p 82). Pearl herself being the product of sin, is a constant reminder to her mother that the scarlet letter cannot be neglected. Hawthorne shows this symbolism various times throughout the story. In Chapter two, during the first scaffold scene when Hester tries to hide away her scarlet letter with Pearl, Hawthorne indicates how useless that would be, considering that Pearl is the personification of her sin. “In a moment, however, wisely judging that one token of her shame would but poorly serve to hide another…” (p 45).
Emily Dickinson suffered lost of sight .She metaphorically used her tragedy and made it into poems of how she felt and how she got accustomed to losing her sight. In Before I Got My Eye Put Out Emily makes it seems as though it isn’t fair that she doesn’t have her sight and all other living things do. She uses metaphors to show the reader how unfair losing her sight was as well. Emily also wanted to show her readers how she accustomed to the losing her sight, metaphorically of course. In the poem We Grow Accustomed To The Dark Emily shows her readers what she had to go through while she was losing her sight as well as how she got through it.
Death can be a difficult topic to talk about due to the uncomfortable or ominous feeling that it gives people. This difficulty can also result from inherent fear that humans have of the unknown. We are clueless on what it feels like when your life is slipping away knowing that death is upon you. In Emily Dickinson’s poem, “ I heard a Fly- Buzz when I died”(1862), these unknown emotions are explored through a dying speaker. Dickinson acknowledges different emotional steps someone goes through and summarizes them as grief, acceptance, appreciation, and death using the stanzas.
