The Benefit of Believing Southern Gothic writing has been around since the 18th century. Many have written under this genre, but writers such as Flannery O’Connor have perfected it and made it popular. In Flannery O’Conner’s literary works, she gives both the characters and various events a grotesque persona in order to give an exaggerated point of view of life. She over stresses in order to show how life can be horrible if you don’t put your faith into something. Having no faith leaves one feeling baron, empty, and in tragedy.
The speaker states, “I wish I had feathers, a fine sweeping gown, / And a delicate face, and could strut’ about Town!” While the victorian society creates the mindset of the people to believe that if you are ruined you are going to have a horrible life, but Hardy insists that those who are ruined do not suffer as much as those who are pure. Thomas Hardy may have put a twist on the poem, to make you believe the one who is “ruined” is Melia, where in reality it is those who still have their virginity. Throughout “The Ruined Maid,” Thomas Hardy displayed anapestic meter, rhythm, closed-form poetry, and imagery explaining the views of the victorian society among those who have become ruined. Satire was also demonstrated by irony with how the “ruined” maid was actually the happier
This poem is written during the hardships of World War I which would gives a life threatening mood to a reader. Without that specific information a reader would clarify quotes such as “The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere” (5)will help the reader acknowledge that chaos has appeared somehow. The idea of a chaotic society gives a understanding that something terrible has happened as the author expresses that a last hour is upon us with the quotation “ And what rough beast, its hour come round at last”(21) implies that a previous quote “The darkness drops again”(18) has foreshadowed the darkness has done its job by awakening Jesus once more for the Second
All Starkfield was at supper, and not a figure crossed the open space before the church. The sky, swollen with the clouds that announce a thaw, hung as low as before a summer storm.” Throughout the novel, there is also a very visible overarching theme of determinism. Determinism, the theme in this novel, is the philosophy that all events are caused by an individual’s environment and prior events outside of an individual’s control. One example is Ethan’s marriage to Zeena. He married Zeena because “he was seized with an unreasoning dread of being left alone on the farm,” (59).
It has been said that “beauty is pain” and in the case of this poem, it is quite literal. “For That He Looked Not Upon Her” written by George Gascoigne, a sixteenth century poet, is a poem in which the speaker cannot look upon the one he loves so that he will not be trapped by her enhanced beauty and looks. In the form of an English sonnet, the speaker uses miserable diction and visual imagery to tell the readers and his love why he cannot look upon her face. Containing three quatrains and a rhyming couplet at the end, this poem displays a perfect English sonnet using iambic pentameter to make it sound serious and conversational. This is significant because most sonnets are about love and each quatrain, in English sonnets, further the speaker’s
Throughout William Shakespeare’s “Sonnet 130,” the reader is constantly tricked into thinking he will compare his mistress to something beautiful and romantic, but instead the speaker lists beautiful things and declares that she is not like them. His language is unpredictable and humor is used for a majority of the poem. This captivating sonnet uses elements such as tone, parody, images, senses, form, and rhyme scheme to illustrate the contradicting comparisons of his mistress and the overarching theme of true love. Shakespeare uses parody language to mock the idea of a romantic poem by joking about romance, but ultimately writes a poem about it. In the first quatrain, the beautiful image of a woman usually created during a romantic poem (i.e, having red lips, pure skin, silky hair) is parodied as he portrays his mistress as plain and not following normal beauty regulations.
This echoed all throughout their big empty castle, and all the fountains stopped flowing and all the plants were silent. The guards stopped all their activities and focused all attention on the two. It had become obvious, This was all an effect of the curse. “What will we do with a mortal son” Gaea exclaimed. “ He will never be able to live up in olympus with the concept that he is a mortal” Gaea continued.
Nothing could grow there. It was a barren stretch of emptiness for as far as the eye could see – and beyond. There was not a house within fifty miles, no game, no berries, no edible roots.” 282 By summer of 1863 the vast majority of Dakota had left Minnesota, heading into western territories or north into Canada. Little Crow and his followers had escaped capture and headed west. He settled in Devils Lake, North Dakota.
Eventually this system will stop. Smaller animals will feed off dairy cows, and other farm animals, but when they die out completely, dogs, and cats will be left to find food from other sources. When those other sources run out it is just minimal time before the small animals die out as well. As time goes on things disappear, and are destructed by the wrath of time. Cities slowly fall apart, human existence gone, and now no animals roaming the earth we once lived upon.
