Here, Phoebe debunks every stereotypical view on love that was shown in the pastoral age, where lovers loved each other to painful lengths, where the mental pain of not being able to be with one another transformed into physical pain. Phoebe, seeming almost cynical in the way she is dismissing Silvius, simply states she does not believe in the myth of what love feels like. She assures Silvius this is not what he feels, because those feelings could simply not exist, and if that time ever comes, not to “pity” her, because she “shall not pity” him (3.5.34-35).
Bradbury is essentially advertising the sun throughout the text, making it seem like much more than it truly is, and in doing so, the reader is left with a harsh, yet frank truth at the end of the story: yes, hope can be a good feeling to have, but in reality, it can also be a menacing force that can mentally drain someone. In contrast, “See You Again” highlights the exaltation that comes with hope, and how it can turn a dark situation into a lighter one. Not only this, but the artists focus much more on reuniting with lost friends. This isn’t shown in the other piece, as Margot never truly has the opportunity to do this. Wiz Khalifa states, “How could we not talk about family when family's all that we got?
However Steinbeck shows us the fear of isolation is worse. Steinbeck portrays the theme loneliness in different ways. He sets the tone of the book in subtle ways that could go unseen but if you look clearly all point to loneliness being a major theme in the book. He illustrates the loneliness of ranch life in the 1030’s and shows how people are driven to try and find friendship in order to escape loneliness. From the get-go, Steinbeck
The exclusion of older people is also one among the major factors leading to isolation, loneliness and social relationship. Social isolation affects about million older people and has a serve impact on people’s quality of life in older age. Loneliness is not currently a priority for service providers but is vital if social exclusion has to be stopped. Identifying the similarities with their situation, these people are drawn to Singer and believe that he cares about them as they are isolated. The inability to communicate and connect with others in The Heart is a Lonely Hunter is regarded as a dominant theme.
In “An Answer to Another Persuading a Lady to Marriage,” which may more accurately be considered an anti-love poem, Philips condemns marraige for restraining women. Philips writes of women who marry “First make the sun in private shine, / And bid the world adieu” (lines 9-10). The ‘sun’ is a metaphor for the bright personality and gifts of the woman she is concerned about. Philips believes married women are expected to remain confined to their homes, and are discouraged from allowing their gifts to be enjoyed by anyone other than their husbands. The woman in question is simply “More bright and large than this” (16).
The role of relationships remains a predominant factor in moral reasoning, and as a foundation for understanding human choices. The relationships between characters in F. Scott Fitzgerald’s novels tend to be based on superficial means, devoid of love and honesty. These failed relationships are very dangerous and destructive in the longer
But, let me consider the reasons to reach this conclusion. First, what captivated my attention was the position the author assumed to tell her story in a moment where mourning was inevitable. I think the author had two clear choices: to write with resentment or to do it with gratitude. “Resentment” is what you feel when you do not receive what you deserve; it always manifests itself in envy; where darkness and pain prevent you to cope with your mourning as well as to regain, step by step, the balance lost. “Gratitude,” instead, is the opposite of resentment; they cannot coexist.
She makes it clear that man cannot understand the way Providence works all things out for good because people only sees confusion and disorder and they cannot know other’s inward motives and inclinations. This means that Boethius cannot find comfort in logic and reason alone but must have faith as well. In Prose VI of Book IV, Lady Philosophy seeks to comfort Boethius in his dire situation by reasoning with him through several concepts. Boethius himself says that he is “very much disturbed” by parts of the explanations given by Lady Philosophy in the previous prose. Consequently, he asks her to “unfold reasons veiled in darkness” in Prose VI (CP 4.6).
In today’s world, one can find many instances of selfishness, whether it be corruption, killing, or even breaking a heart. However, like a diamond in the rough, someone who is truly selfless is hard to come by. One example of a selfless writer is C.S. Lewis, author of Till We Have Faces. Lewis wrote some of his novels in a way to not only educate the world that selflessness will always win but also the fact that selfishness will always lose.
According to Boker it was “the nostalgic fantasy which allowed Hemingway to acknowledge the fact of loss and disappointment, but at the same time to recapture in fantasy, and through the reveries of memory, a lost ideal state of the self” (1996: 253). The meaning of the loss is not homogeneous, different short stories portray different aspects of losing something – either metaphorically, like the loss of happiness, or literally, like losing a wife. I would like to put forward a hypothesis that Hemingway's loss also very often does not only mean emptiness after losing a thing but an unfulfilled void because something has never actually
