A mythological story can express a valuable message to its readers, advising them to choose a certain path when making decisions and to stray away from what can harm them. It can also give an artist, whether it is a painter or a poet, the inspiration to express their intake of what was given to them. The expression can show support of a character’s decision, show sadness towards a character’s place in the myth, or relate the myth to a real-life occurrence. When poet Eavan Boland was reading Book 1 of Ovid’s Metamorphosis, she wanted to express a different meaning of the story of Daphne by writing “Daphne with her Thighs in Bark”. She did this by using a feminist approach while looking back at Daphne’s fate.
Emily Dickinson shows rebellion as she talks about wild nights figuratively. At the time the story was written, her wild behavior would have been frowned upon since she is a lady. In Dickinson’s first stanza, an image of two lovers is visible as the audience reads “were I with thee” and “our luxury”. In comparison to the theme of Emily Dickenson’s “Wild Nights”, William Shakespeare’s “Let Me Not to the Marriage of True Minds” shows readers the theme of true love with the help of metaphors, personification, and symbolism. William Shakespeare talks about what love is, what love isn’t and what love cannot possibly be.
Then when we hit Cyprus the whole plot begins with the cheating and it becomes more interesting and then back to being to be slow because everything is over. I also chose “Institutionalized” because it talks about being a minority and the struggle with that. I thought this would fit best with Othello because Othello himself is an outsider in Venice despite being respected in the play. I also chose “Miss Right” to represent Cassio because it’s a song that has a flirty tone to the song. I chose “Dark Day” for Iago because as the song says Iago is a dark character and brings destruction everywhere.
It has also shown the effectiveness of using figurative language and sound devices to portray an idea. By using these devices, the poet created a literal and a figurative meaning to the poem. After analysing the poem, Hughes showed that the concepts listed after the first line were all the things Hughes compared a deferred dream to. He gathered things that an average person wouldn’t like and compared it to a deferred dream. These unappealing things may be rotten meat, a dried raisin, a stale sweet, or a heavy load.
Poetry is an important part of literature which conveys an author 's ideas across to the reader through the use of descriptive language. Poetry helps an author to express their inner emotions and often incorporates various poetic devices which enriches the text. Poetry gives the reader a different perspective and when read closely, can give the audience a look into the authors imagination. Likewise, poetic devices enhance the writing and can drastically change the mood of the poem, as well as, how the reader interprets the poem. Poetic devices are important in literature because they help to convey a message, add spontaneity to a poem, and give the reader a strong visual.
Conversely, the trailer format adds onto the poem since visual and audio aids alter the pathos. What impacts the viewers is not the the mental image of the poem but rather the actor’s verbal emphasis on the inscription, “Look on my works, ye mighty, and despair”. The pathos lies in the actor’s impactful oration rather than the imagery from the poem. Also, in the same moment, dramatic music swells up before abruptly stopping, just as the great Ozymandias’ kingdom has fallen. The trailer even visually “updates” the kingdom for the modern tyrant the trailer is directed to.
The topic I would like to introduce is Surrealism/ Surrealistic/ Surreal imagery and the significance of its movement and how it influenced many artist all over the globe in the past and still is today. My understanding of this style of art is basically having something out of this world but juxtaposed. Fantasy like objects, effects, perhaps hallucinatory quality of a dream or simply just something unreal. In this essay, the example I have chosen or artist work I found interesting is Sabina Nore, (a modern artist) her work, Divine Fury (Figure 1). I am also going to compare her work against Salvador Dali (historical artist) as his work influenced her.
For irony to be used correctly, the reader must be able to clearly understand the difference between what is being said and what is expected. In the first page of the short story The “Lottery”, Jackson uses Dramatic Irony to put readers off guard by them expecting something good to happen, but it actually was the opposite. “ The lottery was conducted-- as were the square dances,the teen clubs,the halloween program--by Mr.Summers”(Jackson 1). Another example of how the author used irony to develop the story is when she used situational irony to give you a hint on about who was going to be the “winner” of the lottery. Irony helps the story, it increases the focus on the difference between the way things could/should be, and the way they are.
Poetry is one of the most elaborate works of art in our society. There are numerous literary elements that go into writing poetry and as Robert Frost once said, it has countless “rhythmical compositions of words used to express attitude and arouse emotional response” (pg, xxix). The beauty of poetry though is that it can mean so many things to one person and be interpreted entirely different by another. One way that this is done is by establishing what the tone is in a particular poem. The tone ii the poem is immensely important because it tells the reader the attitude or feeling the poet takes toward a theme or subject.
Response to Statement 2: In Biographia Literaria, Coleridge states that his part in the Lyrical Ballads was to dedicate himself "to persons and characters supernatural, or at least romantic"(see LB ch.14, reader p. 44). His challenge was to do this in a way in which the readers would be willing to forget their disbelief and the implausibility of certain aspects or actions of and around said characters. As I interpret it, the audience should thus allow themselves to accept an altered reality where supernatural things occur, without having to question them. This should ultimately help them to get a deeper meaning out of the text. There are several different aspects within "The Rime of the Ancient Mariner" where we can see how Coleridge managed to fulfill his task.
Authors use figurative language to engage their readers and make their story more convincing or interesting. Authors also use it to help add mood fluency and imagery to their books. For example, in Ender’s game the author uses figurative language a lot to help the reader understand and help picture what 's going on in the scenes. The author uses metaphors, and hyperboles to create vivid images. The author use these literary devices to enhance the novel.
"Rewind That" epitomizes Scott 's brag about what you 'll need to do with his music. Notwithstanding my envy, I can 't even number the times I replayed the title track to assimilate that executioner guitar riff, that swooning bass, and that magnificent trumpet. The second and third tunes, "Say It" and "Like This", present the collection 's initial two "stories." Genuine, their musical courses of action and rhythms are distinctive, however they appear like allies ("Say It", "Like this" – go on, say them together a couple times). On "Say It" the wonderful guitar work keeps, giving the essential undercurrent to supplement Scott 's engaged lead, especially when there 's an extension.
