The author is trying to give the readers a heroic image of the men by writing statements like “Boldly they rode and well” and Honour the charge they made!” This gives an image of brave soldiers riding through war like heroic-figures.

The diction helps Tennyson express his respect because it allows him to talk highly of the men, therefore, exposing his respect for the men.

The Use of Eyes in “The Rocking Horse Winner” by D.H. Lawrence As William Shakespeare said, “The eyes are a window to your soul”; author D.H. Lawrence puts this quote to practice in his short story, “The Rocking Horse Winner.” He uses the eyes of his characters, in particular the protagonist Paul, to show changes or advancements of these characters over the course of the story. The first description of Paul`s eyes occurs when he is speaking with his mother Hester about luck and are described as “Uneasy eyes.” (371) This description shows that Paul is interested in what Hester has to say and desires her approval and love but doesn’t fully understand what she means.
Karl Marlantes, in his book What it is Like to go to War argues that, “concepts of loyalty change…and warriors have to cope with that” (134). Marlantes supports this thesis by presenting a strong emotional appeal to the audience and supporting his appeal with ethos and logos. He mentions that he, “was facing a hard choice between duty and heart…as a unit or even ideals and loyalty to a person” (139). Marlantes uses ethos and pathos to connect the reader with sympathy and have credibility for being a part of a unit.
Viktor Chemmel and Franz Deutcher are examples of cruel personalities; concentration camps give us goose bumps on the very sound of the word itself. We can also observe different examples of love: Rudy’s love for Liesel, Max and Liesel’s love through friendship, Han’s parental love for Liesel. I could feel love between the characters even though they were swearing at each other. Love will always be present despite the war, damage, death and
The setting is filled with the contrast of light and dark colors that appear in the background, skies, and lighting. These bring about certain emotions in the viewer. Gandalf and his horsemen charging into battle and illuminating the scene can be compared to how hope can repel despair. A best friend can help bring about hope, and in this movie Sam is distinctly the best friend archetype because of his enduring faithfulness towards Frodo. A best friend’s attributes mirror Sam’s; they are faithful, honest, and give wise counsel, which bring about hope in the friend.

The most memorable, however, is the “Fight the Power” song which regularly inspires the battle against oppression, racism, and prejudices. The pattern viewers hear when listening to the song throughout the film is that it is played whenever there is a major event, such as the beginning, the burning of Sal’s, and the end to name a few. The use of patterns and repetition help the viewer understand the complexity of the struggles as a result of systemic
In the film Rear Window, the director, Alfred Hitchcock uses a variety of techniques to create suspense and leave viewers on the edge of their seats throughout the film.

A common theme throughout the movies we watched, Paths of Glory, Beasts of No Nation, and City of God was that of Brotherhood. Brotherhood is a common theme throughout all war movies but especially prevalent in these. For example, to develop this theme in Paths of Glory, Stanley Kubrick, uses the costumes to show uniformity, which in turns represents brotherhood. Another example of this in Paths of Glory is the use of the dialogue by Colonel Dax as he is constantly trying to defend his company from the council. In Beast of No Nation the director, Cary Fukunaga, develops the theme of brotherhood by showing how close Agu and Strika were, and showing them go through their hardships together.
The geographical setting in the novel All the Pretty Horses written by Cormac McCarthy can be tied to Thomas Foster's insights in chapter 19 of How to Read Literature like a Professor. In the chapter, Geography Matters…, it introduces geographical symbolism that is apparent in John Grady and Lacey Rawlins’ escapade in rural Mexico. Foster claims cardinal directions can symbolize behavior by stating “when writers send characters south, it’s so they can run amok” (pg. 173). In All the Pretty Horses, McCarthy creates chaos which burdens the boys as they head south. Before leaving America to work in Mexico, they tell a man that they are bank robbers.
Two different words are presented in Lanval, the courtly love at the beginning of the lai where Lanval is rejected; and the world of fantasy, love, and erotic pleasure. This two different worlds most of the time find a way to coexist with each other. Like my classmate Juan Linares said with the example of Eric and Enide, by how they eventually find a balance between love and duty. However, with Lanval this is not the case. During all the poem one cannot find a part where both can actually coexist, it is always one or the other.
