Thus, trapping them from achieving what they want. Both “Thoughts in a Zoo”(“Zoo”)by Countee Cullen and “All the World’s a Stage”(“Stage”) by William Shakespeare show similar perspectives on how stereotypes trapped people through metaphors. By using metaphors,“Zoo” compares a dreary outlook of how zoo animals live to the conditions of living in a stereotypical community. Cullen uses many fierce animals, animals that symbolize many things, to illustrate this dreadful situation, one of them being an eagle. In lines 11-12, Cullen writes “Gaunt eagle whose raw pinions stain the bars/ That prison you, so men cry for the stars!”.
Confinement through Glass Tennessee Williams once said “We are all sentenced to solitary confinement inside our own skins, for life.” In The Glass Menagerie, by Williams, the main character has a collection of glass animals that serve a greater purpose rather than being just for display. The play focuses on the idea of people being trapped and struggling to escape their reality. The play also mentions many characters and symbols throughout, but the glass animal collection gives the play a greater meaning. Laura Wingfield, who is 23-years-old, is the owner of the glass animal collection. “The Glass Menagerie is fragile and delicate, just as Laura” (Shmoop 1).
“Delve down” denotes “reach inside a receptacle and search for something.” Conversely, “Delve down”connotes darkness because it describes African Americans going deep in the unknown because they don’t want the attention given by society. They feel trapped like the zoo animals and don’t want to be seen like the mole in the zoo. They do not want to be seen because everyone around them judges each of their actions. The tone of ‘delve down’ is hopeless because people want to go deep down in the darkness when they feel
The similarities are that they both have animals involved, they are made by the government, and you can visit both establishments. The differences are that zoos do not give the animals nor the time or the care they need, they drug, imprison, abuse and kill animals; all for the public`s attention, they make animals feel uncomfortable with their environment, and last but not least, a lot of zoos still kidnap animals form their natural habitats in order for them to be part of the exhibition. In the other hand, nature reserves allow the animals to stay in their habitats, run freely, hunt their preys, explore, and all of that with human protection, meaning no one can harm them. Which are the living conditions in zoos and nature reserves? In zoos, the living conditions are poor, because there, animals sometimes starve to death, catch deseases and left to die, the medical care is very poor, and animals are forced to do whatever the crowd wants them to do, while in nature reserves, the animals get to do whatever they want and whenever they want .
He has written “Thoughts in a Zoo” which depicts the life these African Americans had to live through while living through the Harlem Renaissance. The poem says on how they were treated like animals locked up in a cage. They didn’t have any rights and couldn’t live freely as they should have. Another poem the he wrote was “The Wise”, which is about how older people have the greatest knowledge and are very wise since they have been through a lot in their lives and know what to do and what not to do. Another one of his poems “Song in Spite of Myself” is him telling the reader not to love all at once, never live with all your mind, never love with all your soul which is telling you not to love something right away and to take time to love for who or what they are because if something goes wrong then it will hurt you the
As he explains to Lennie that the ranch men don’t let him near them, Crooks tells him,“They play cards in the bunk house but I can’t play because I’m black” (68). Crooks uses cards as an example of one of the many things he is not allowed to do on the ranch. The fact that he isn’t even able to participate in leisure activities such as card games shows just how alone he is on the ranch. After that Crooks begins to talk more about his solitude and how “a guy goes nuts if he ain’t got nobody… [He] gets too lonely an’ he gets sick” (72-73). Crooks is explaining that although he’s used to being alone like this he is frustrated and bitter because of his loneliness.
This story illustrates the challenges that foreigners encounter in a new savage society and how ignorant people of the community can be. In the first appearance of the old man, he was neglected, and nobody was willing to help him, Peyalo ran away from the old man, left him lying in the mud instead of aiding him (Marquez, 15). The family of Pelayo did not welcome the angel into the house when his chicken coop collapsed; he was forced to remain outside. The old man faces rejection. When the priest, the wise neighbor, and the church hierarchy were unable to classify the old man, they certainly disregarded
Do you recognize that cute little animal you claim to love, well do you know that you are going more harm than good when you support zoo’s. I know you may think, “how could I hurt animals by going to a zoo” well did you know that a life of confinement doesn't compare to the life that animal would have in their natural habitat. When you support a zoo you are supporting the mistreatment of animals. Animals in zoos are forced to sit in small enclosure and are literally driven insane from frustration and boredom. You call yourself an animal lover but no real animal lover would stand for the mistreatment in zoos.
Old Major, for example, is a personification of Leon Trotsky, who was a Marxist. A pig character, Old Major is a personification or a historical leader on Manor Farm. The author also uses appeals to ethos and logos in the story “Animal Farm.” These rhetorical strategies are used to convey his message to the reader. "Man is the only creature that consumes without producing. He does not give milk, he does not lay eggs, he is too weak to pull the plough, he cannot run fast enough to catch rabbits.
When Grant first begrudgingly went to visit Jefferson in prison Jefferson was in a really low state. His attorney had just called him a hog, told the judge that Jefferson was not competent enough to be able to plan this theft and murder, and that Jefferson was only someone 's property.
