While showing imagery to help the reader better understand what she is trying to say in her poem. Another good representation of Faith Shearins smooth and detailed tone is this part of the poem ”No longer remember, we were seeing / one another after seasons of darkness” (“Sight” 24-25) this part of the poem shows how descriptive the writer is and how smooth and precise she is in her writing. It also shows how she likes to add detail so the reader can try to think what she was thinking while writing the poem. Faith Shearin is an amazing author; she helps the reader understand what she is saying by being very descriptive. From her thoroughness she helps the reader better understand the information that she writes; and still leaves openness for the reader to have their own ideas about her poems and
Granny Weatherall cannot wait until Cornelia gets old and her children start talking down to her. Symbolism expresses many things in a story. One example is that the color blue is found throughout the story itself. It symbolizes tidiness which Granny appreciates a lot. The color is shown everywhere in the story like in a reference of her husband, when she dies and, in this quote “Their eyes followed the match and watched the flame rise and settle in a blue curve, then they moved away from her (Porter, Page 624).
Her habits from when she was younger, such as reading and thinking backwards, can directly relate to her disability and is seen as her way of handling how it feels to be so different from those around her. Not only does Adah have her own unique ways of thinking, but also she is very connected to poetry. She uses it often to connect her problems to other people, since she cannot always relate to those in her family. “Because I could not stop for death, He kindly stopped for me,” (Kingsolver 365). This
The flaws can affect the plot in negative and both positive ways. For instance, Doctor Frankenstein’s flaw caused all his problems in the book, but in stories like The Most Important Day by Helen Keller, her flaw caused all the good things to happen to her. Although in both stories the main characters had a grand realization. Doctor Frankenstein realized that he doesn’t want to be godlike anymore. Helen Keller’s realization was that life is beautiful, and this quote affirms that, “ It would have been difficult to find a happier child than I was as I lay in my crib at the close of that eventful day and lived over the joys it had brought me, and for the first time longed for a new day to come” (Keller 84-85).
She says, “Dad was perfect,” even though the quote provides information that he is flawed by being an alcoholic. Rex Walls made Jeannette’s life scary and eventful, but she continued to love him and keep him on a pedestal. Jeannette 's mother, on the other hand, came across more negatively according to my classmates and I. While there are some extreme situations in the book that are absolutely horrible for a child to experience, many of the situations with her mom were the worst. Sure she was starving and that was bad, but it was the mother who was mentioned more, not the fact that Jeannette was hungry.
As Pearl faces the same shame as her parents, such as being called “an imp of evil, emblem and product of sin" (Hawthorne, 129), her need for care and attention grows larger. The final aspect of love in the novel is one of the importance and connection to family. The humiliation and contempt they all felt brought them closer together as they did not want to witness any of their suffering. Pearl’s reaction to her father’s death exemplifies the depth and strength of their connection. The narrator describes their final moments by saying “Pearl kissed his lips.
1. Short stories often utilize suspense to peak a reader 's interest and keep them reading until the end of the story. One story that utilizes suspense is CP Gillman 's "The Yellow Wallpaper" as a woman 's experience with a rest treatment is described through an intriguing stream of consciousness. By looking at how the narrator describes her mental state, and using the syntax of the text, the reader is better able to understand exactly how the narrator is feeling and discern her mental state. In the last section of "The Yellow Wallpaper" CP Gillman destabilizes the reader by using unique syntax to describe the wallpaper and the narrator 's actions illustrating the narrator 's descent into madness.
The tone of the poem is slightly sad, but reassuring. The first stanza is somber because the woman is old and seemingly alone. But, when the second stanza is read, readers are reassured and are able to see the love the speaker has for the woman. "But one man loved the pilgrim soul in you, / And loved the sorrows of your changing face."(7-8). This quote draws an emotional experience to many readers.
Although there is no clear statement that shows Louise to have an oppressive marriage, there are ambiguous statements about the marriage that show she feels caged. During the event of finding out about Brently’s death, Louise did not respond “as many women have heard the same, with a paralyzed inability to accept its significance. She wept at once, with sudden wild abandonment” (Chopin), due to Brently’s death she is finally able to let out emotions that she has held in for so many years of being a dutiful wife. Once Louise is left alone to grieve she reflects upon her feelings and her marriage. The narrator points out that Louise knows she will cry again for him when she sees his funeral, remembering his “kind, tender hands...the face that had never looked save with love upon her” (Chopin).
“Bishop’s carefully judged use of language aids the reader to uncover the intensity of feeling in her poetry.” Elizabeth Bishop’s superb use of language in her introspective poetry allows the reader to grasp a better understand of feeling in her poetry. Bishop’s concentration of minor details led to her being referred to as a “miniaturist”, however this allows her to paint vivid imagery, immersing the reader in her chosen scenario. Through descriptive detail, use of metaphor, simile, and many other excellently executed stylistic devices, the reader can almost feel the emotion being conveyed. Bishop clearly demonstrates her innate talent to communicate environments at ease. Throughout her poetry she remains honest, painting an unflattering self-portrait through lyrical beauty, allowing us to empathize with her.

In this book, unlike the play, her daughter has not yet passed away, and that is a crucial piece of information. The book is full of love for her husband, and she creates a character for him that, as a reader, I felt I was going to miss despite that face that he was dead from the very beginning of the memoir. Through her memories of him, she made me get to know him and care for him, and she got me invested in their relationship, but his death made it so that I knew it was over. In a strange way, I felt myself wanting him to come back, but I knew this is impossible due to the fact that it was a
