Cathedral by Raymond Carver and Car Crash While Hitchhiking by Dennis Johnson are two non-fiction short stories that have many similarities and differences. Cathedral is a story narrated by the husband of a wife who is friends with a blind man. The wife has her blind friend come stay at their house, and the speaker is not comfortable with this, but his views change throughout the story. Car Crash While Hitchhiking is about a man in his mid-twenties that is on a lot of drugs that he receives from previous people who have let them ride with them. He wakes up in a puddle on the side of the road, and eventually a man with his family picks him up, and the end up getting into a wreck.
It then turns out to be ironic and against normal expectations of the readers because there is the anticipation of something special to be spoken from the other party as well. Another piece of irony is toward the end of the poem when Prufrock shows his fear of death and becomes concerned with old age. Prufrock is talking to his friend as he narrates about the worries he undergoes because he is growing old and feeble (Eliot 371). The woman the speaker is referring to in a sense is not real because the presence of the woman is not there, which questions the legitimacy of the title for the poem. It can be the title is just pretending to more serious that it is since the monologue is what the character gives and sounds like a false love song.
Ethan would quietly lament this loss for as long as he lives. Not fully being able to express his true nature, a man with a refined mind who can’t show the world how he feels, and what he’s is passionate about. This can also be shown when the narrator states “His unfinished studies had given form to this sensibility and even in his unhappiest moments field and sky spoke to him with a deep and powerful persuasion”(Wharton 11). Second is Ethan hastily marring Zeena when she came to take care of his mother when she became sick, throughout the book you can easily pick up on the disconnect between the two. Although it is reasonable why he did so.
I return my cart 19 times out of 20. If I have Jack-Jack and Dash with me, I can let Jack-Jack get in the car, and Dash can return the cart. If I am by myself, I return my cart. When navigating through the parking lot with Jack-Jack, I push the cart while holding his hand or making sure he holds onto the cart. When I get to the car, I have him hop into his seat while I unload the buggy.
Were moving to the town of tarnish where your father grew up. tarnish sounded like a nice place, but Sterling would come to find that, that couldn’t be father from the truth. As the family car followed the moving truck, Sterling could slowly see the scenery change from very elegant to not so what he was use to. Finally the moving truck came to a screeching stop. As Sterling exited the family car he looked so shocked at his new neighborhood it was like he had been dropped off in a haunted town.
Later in the poem, the narrator also implies that, at times, he “taxes” himself with “forethought of grief,” which reminds me of something that I once heard or read about stress. Stress was described as the feeling or expectation when one thinks that he will not be able to accomplish something in a certain amount of time. This definition has remained in the back of my mind because it essentially argued that stress was only a person’s fears of failing of a task at hand; it had nothing to do with the person’s actual ability to complete the task. When I stress about completing weekly assignments, encountering future events, or simply being able to make it school on time, sometimes I have to take a step back and recognize that my worries are unjustified. Hence, I admire Berry’s observations
This anger is from the grudge she’s holding against her father which causes her to want to hide from her father. She wants to rid the memory of her father because she is “sick / of history dragging behind [her]” which goes back to the title of the poem, “Go Forget Your Father” (45). This shows that the speaker prefers to go back to her old morals and not hold a grudge against her father. To end the poem, Che presents the reader with another transition back to a softer tone. She wants to love her father again and let go of the grudge; to do this, the speaker and her father has to “show each other who [they] used to be” (66-67).
Through symbolism, you see his inability to feel comfortable in current situations by putting up facades or dreaming about unreal fantasies. Finally, conflict shows how Holden’s emotions are affected by the loss of his brother and is clearly seen through his inability to communicate. In the final scene of The Babadook when Sam holds his mother’s face proving to her that she is loved and she can share her grief, this relates to the final scene in The Catcher in the Rye when Holden watches Phoebe on the carousel realizing that his fantasy cannot come true and that he truly feels happiness at home. J.D. Salinger tactfully places society’s impacts on Holden throughout the novel in perfect places for the reader to interpret his crumbling emotional
That thing will come back no more’” (Fitzgerald 14). Fitzgerald repeats “That thing is gone” over and over again to emphasize the phrase and ensure that the readers know that he is intentionally emphasizing it. The phrase “That thing is gone” holds significance that Dexter lost his chance with love and he ends up in grief, but Dexter continues to let himself be obscured by his obsession for Judy as he stresses himself over not being able to achieve his securing Judy. Dexter locks himself in a never ending loop of despair and regret for not accomplishing his dream. Fitzgerald further reminds his readers that too much ambition can result in dissatisfaction by leading them on through blurred
I must have dozed off, because I was awoken by somebody poking my shoulder. I yawned as I unbuckled and stepped out of the vehicle. The man handed me a keycard with a number, then turned and once again got behind the wheel. I observed him for a moment, then closed my door and watched him speed off down the road. I did a full 360, taking in the scenery.
