With the first couple of lines the poet is telling us that she is a liar. A loss of physical innocence is shown here, "I can 't see my own arms and legs or know if this is a trap or blessing" She is telling us that she has become physically detached from her body and she is confused as she doesn 't understand if this moment is a "trap of a blessing." The loss of innocence clearly links up with post-apocalyptic times in The Road to Winter where Finn lost his innocence when he decided whether to kill Ramage or not and him discussing his emotions. The novel has many dangers moments in it and this is shown in the poem as well, "rises up silently like dark bread." This simile reflects the dangers of the natural world in post-apocalyptic times.

Danforth's power blinds him to the truth, and prevents him from seeing the effect that his actions have on the lives of innocent people Arthur Miller argues that being fearful or damaging one's reputation is what caused people to act irrationally and against their morals, coming off as selfish and arrogant, and leading to the Salem Witch Hysteria. Through the characterization of Hale, Parris and Danforth, it is evident how excessive pride makes people unwilling to admit to their mistakes, with the fear of a reputation damage. Miller's descriptions of the frailty of arrogance, can be used as an example of how arrogance turns people against each
One of three examples of the way that Jem 's character developed in Part one of the novel , is that Jem in Part one of the novel intervenes when Scout was whaling upon Walter for circumstances that were far beyond his control. He thus in this way, shows that he is changing, and learning the meaning of respect and empathy. Although respect and empathy are certainly hard lessons for him to learn, as he later attacks Mrs. Dubose 's camellia bush in chapter 11, and he certainly doesn 't show any respect or empathy then. This, then brings us to the second example of how he is changing and developing as a character in Part one of the novel for he softly pets the petals of the camellia. Which, is shown here in the following excerpt “I saw him
“Daddy” reflects two completely different time periods in Plath’s life. The first age it reflects is her youth, particularly right after her father died. She confesses in an interview that her life was “sealed off after the age of seven and that her adolescence was not too happy, causing her to become introverted and to write diary poems between the ages of nine and sixteen” (Butscher 14). Her father’s death was the reason behind many of the poems she wrote, often serving as her muse (Rietz 418). This traumatic event appears in Plath’s poetry as an end to her wholeness and her perfect childhood (Kroll 1).
Throughout the entire novel, Christopher experiences a series of increasingly destabilizing events, such as learning of Mother’s affair and Father’s deceptions, revealing that Christopher’s narrow focus on order at the beginning of the novel actually keeps him—and the reader—blind to the complex tangle of relationships within his family. This disorder grows increasingly prominent as the story progresses. When Christopher leaves Swindon to find his mother in London, he becomes literally demobalised at times by the disorder of the massive urban landscape he passes through, which symbolizes the disorder he faces in his family. The novel concludes with the various characters resolving some of their issues, but with their lives remaining essentially as untidy as
People always say that “the road won’t be easy.” Unfortunately, in life bad things happen to good people. For example, people have a loved one die, and they cannot control it. This is also the case for Oedipus, because he does not know the truth about his life and does not know that he is actually fulfilling the prophecy about him.Oedipus was blind to the truth almost the entirety of the play. In Oedipus Rex, Jocasta is to blame because she complained to Oedipus and then killed herself, and Creon is to blame because he made Oedipus angry and brought Teiresias to Oedipus. The Herdsman revealing the truth to Oedipus brought grievance to him.
