The narrator kills Doodle indirectly, as a consequence of the lack of knowledge he has about Doodle’s medical issues, and as said before, being enveloped in pride. After Doodle dies alone in the storm, the reader grasps the “true love” the narrator had for him, which he never expressed toward his younger brother. In the closing paragraph, the narrator reveals his “true love” that was hidden inside him, “ I began to weep, and the tear-blurred vision in red before me looked very familiar. ‘Doodle!’ I screamed above the pounding storm and threw my body to the earth above his. For a long long time, it seemed forever, I lay there crying, sheltering my fallen scarlet ibis from the heresy of rain” (604).
It is said that John Keats has a depressing style of writing, which many could not understand the answer to if they had not learned about his life. Since Keats was constantly surrounded by death and loss, he found writing about it was his only way of expression. His poems mainly consisted of the themes such as fear of death, loss of time, and love. Ode on a Grecian Urn is a 5 stanza, 10 line work of art done by the poet John Keats. This poem is extremely confusing even to experts today, in the sense of its wording.
He wrote about the true horrors of war, often carping about and chastising people such as generals, politicians, and churchmen who blindly supported the war and ignored the brutalities that people would face. After he was wounded in action, he openly protested the military and wrote a letter refusing to fight anymore. He was hospitalized in 1917 instead of being court-martialed after a fellow poet stepped in saying he was sick. He continued to write after this and published many poems, including How to Die. Based on the poem Dulce et Decorum Est and How to Die, it is not
in this short story, the author would like to denounce firstly the war and the conditions of leaving that known soldiers. Moreover, this story underlines the importance at this time of the duty in terms of the family. In fact, Druse, a young man has to leave his family to defend his state and at the end of the story, he kills his father under the pressure of the duty. Then, we can say that the duty has clearly a destructive power over family and a negative impact on relationships and life. Indeed, family is less important than military duty at this
They have been completely dissolved by the incredible pain they experience. In his novel, All Quiet on the Western Front, Erich Maria Remarque uses figurative language, such as apostrophes, personifications and metaphors to convey the theme that war destroys men by causing emotional, physical and psychological pain Apostrophes are used to foreground the pain Paul feels due to the fact that war has caused him severe emotional despair. For Example, as Paul speaks to his mother, he feels an incredible sadness due to the fact that it is no longer acceptable for him to show emotion: “Ah! Mother, Mother! You still think I am child- why can I not put my head in your lap and weep?
After some time, the anti-war protest began to increase which ultimately ended with the withdrawal of U.S. forces in 1973. Vietnam War is a depiction that wars are full of sadness and destructive to human through a political cartoon “Name a Clean One”, newspaper article “3.7 million served during 15 year-war experiences haunt many Vietnam veterans” and movie
But in the end of both Sonnets he gathers up his feelings and cries and stops once he thinks of a better thought Sonnet 29, Him being happy with himself, Sonnet 30, the thought of a dear friend. 44. In Sonnet 71 He is saying that he only wants his love to mourn over him when she is at his funeral. And when she reads this he needs her to forget who wrote it and know that he loves her so much that he needs her to move on. That if she holds onto him she will not ever be happy and he needs her to be so the towns people
Dickinson emphasizes that her gown is made of “Gossamer” and her “Tippet” which is only made of “Tulle”, which isn’t enough to warm her up. This suggests that Dickinson wants the reader to feel that the objects are alive through the use of personification. Both poems convey the theme of death; the poets Seamus Heaney and Emily Dickinson present the conclusion differently. Dickinson has created a very negative representation of death as it is about the death of a young family member, whereas Dickinson, gives a more calm, relaxing feeling as she gives her opinion on what she thinks will happen after death and is optimistic as she talks about Eternity in his final sentence. To conclude, I think that both poems successfully served their idea by giving the reader the feeling or idea that the poet wanted to
The poem is about the regret Fischl is feeling for the little Polish boy and the millions of people who lost their lives. Fischl wishes he was the one to suffer that pain and feels that he could have done something to stop it. Fischl uses parallelism in his poem he states, "and the world who said nothing" he repeats this line repeatedly to show how there were millions of people getting killed, no one stood up to help not even himself that is why he feels regret and wishes he could have done something. One of the important lines that made me like this poem was, "The world watch and did nothing" by this we know that millions of people like the little polish boy, who are getting targeted with war machine guns and no one standing up or they pretend nothing is there but, there is a lot. The world was blind and not noticing or acting on what is occurring in the world.
The abandonment of religious values leads way to accepting new stoic values. He supplants the values of his school with his own sense of honesty. In Good-Bye to All That, Robert Graves buries the beliefs of his youth and replaces them with the values he learned fighting in the trenches. Graves sees the trench warfare of World War I as a true nightmare, which makes him not have any respect for the trivial rules and etiquettes that his superiors want him to follow. When he and his comrades have to worry about being killed or wounded in thousands of horrific ways, his manners seem like the last thing he should be caring about as a soldier.
