“So, I take phosphates or phosphites whichever it is, and tonics, and journeys, and air, and exercise, and am absolutely forbidden to "work" until I am well again. Personally, I disagree with their ideas. Personally, I believe that congenial work, with excitement and change, would do me good. But what is one to do? (l.42)
In this poem, Dickinson is implying that forgetting someone or moving on is a lot harder when it is not certain if the feelings were ever shared. The truth may not be positive, but it is better than uncertainty. The narrator has been hurt somehow by her lover, and is not only angry with him but at herself. Pain makes it harder to forget someone as well. The narrator thinks that if the emotion goes away, so will the pain and the memories, which may be true, but the narrator is not entirely certain.
In Langston Hughes’ poem “Dreams,” he elucidates that life without dreams would be a similar existence to a pencil without paper: a life drained of purpose. Hughes posits that dreams are the crux of human life because every person needs something to aspire towards; a life void of dreams would be one void of hope. Yet, Hughes does not explore the value of dreams by lauding their beauty, but rather by lamenting
Sometimes I Cry by Tupac writes about the pain of feeling lonely and not having anyone to turn too to discuss or hear his true feelings. In this poem he writes how he wishes he could confide in someone and how selfish the world is by not having the time or patience to stop and listen to others pain. Tupac writes “The world moves fast and it would rather pass u by than to stop and see what made you cry”. Here he clearly admits to the lack of compassion the world has for those who are in pain. Feeling sad and not having someone ask you what’s wrong or care is what Tupac is writing about.
Therefore, it seems like his purpose is to take on the role of a mother to those who read his works and are going through the same struggles and to bring them ‘ease’. This is further proven by the epigram which brings a twist where the poetry he read was initially addressed to himself but later is intended for him to bring comfort and hope to his readers. This connects to his other poem ‘Storm’ where he reconciles with his emotions and realizes that they’re not wrong and in doing so, the poem is able to bring relief and comfort to others who would have read this poem in such a dangerous time for gay people. His experience is able to guide and soothe
But then as you read more of the poem, that rhyme scheme fades away as the lines don’t rhyme anymore. However, there are some slant rhymes in the middle. I feel that the effect this has on the readers is that it helps emphasize the mood the writer wants to convey and also helps with the meaning because she just starts listing things people do when a person dies,
It is obvious to readers that Huck is deeply afraid of dying because he is still a child but it almost seems that on every page that he is cheating death. On the other hand Sylvia Plath 's “I am Vertical” explains the bliss that she would enjoy if she was lying down dead rather than standing up living. Readers of both texts can see a clear divide in how the concept of death is portrayed. Through The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn and “I am Vertical”, the works of Mark Twain and poet Sylvia Plath reveal that the concept of death can be bliss for some and sickening for others by using diction, imagery, and point of
One poems is perfectly fine with dying and the other is skeptical on how it will happen and what happens furthermore. In the poem “ If we must die” the author states “ If we must die, let it not be like hogs” (Mckay 1) The author is okay with dying but does not want it to turn out horrible. He wants it to not be terrifying and just to be peaceful. In the poem “ Bowery Blues Excerpt” the author says “ I want to live, I want to die.”
In Marius’s case he did find love at first sight, but how will their relationship be in the long run? When throughout the book Eponine showed Marius so much love and support. Eponine even helped Marius out with finding Cosette which had to be hard to do when she loves Marius. Another part of the book where Eponine was frustrated with Marius was at the barricade before she was going to die. “See, you are lost!”(pg 289) What we got from this part of the book was that Eponine wanted to live with Marius and die with him that she had no other choice then to go to the barricade and end it like this with Marius.
The thought was agonizing …… But it added to my pain to think that the good old aunt, who had always been so kind to her sister's orphan children, should be shut up in prison for no other crime than loving them" (Harriet 579) well reflects the inner conflict, and guiltiness created by her escape. Nevertheless, there is a difference in a way each writing addresses those characteristics. " An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge" uses third person limited point of view, which is a common characteristic found in literatures of realism.
As the time went by inside the camps, many wondered if it would be better to just give up, give up and forget all the misery they have gone through. To just let go and fall in the arms of god. However, for some that was not the case, they fought until they no longer had a sense of what they were doing and if it was the right thing to do. They had hope, hope that made them feel as if this was not real, that it would all pass soon. For example, Elie Wiesel said ”I pinched myself: Was I still alive?
You keep walking and then look away as if there is nothing you can do, hoping that someone else will be able to help. It is time to give back and make a difference in the lives of Veterans. Leaving something different can be a scary experience. One of the hardest situations ever occurred to me is not doing what was expected of me. Always afraid to move against the tide, though I decided that was a valuable skill that I should leave.
I know that writers struggle at first and once they start there is no stopping them. I wait for that to happen to me, but I find myself stuck. I didn’t how to start writing because I kept over thinking that whatever I had thought already was wrong. Thesis: For me, the best author that provided me with the most valuable information was Anne Lamott’s “Getting Started” because she gave me ways of how I can begin to write when I have zero ideas as to what to write, how and where to write it.
“The Tide Rises, the Tide Falls,” and “A Psalm of Life” are both great poems written by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, however, “A Psalm of Life” is the poem that lies to my best interest. Yes, each one has it’s own unique style, but the reason why I like this poem is because it simply describes the people of today. This poem resembles how the people of today would rather blend in with the crowd instead of being the light of this world. This poem can be interpreted many ways, yet, if we truly anaylsis this poem, we know for a fact that people should start living in the present and live a life that is fruitful. In fact these to two lines from stanza 6 , “Trust no Future, howe’er pleasant!/Let the dead Past bury its dead!,” tells us that there are two kinds of people in the world.
I think these are noble motives and could motivate the youngest of people to write what they desire. Aesthetic enthusiasm is a motive to write for the beauty of it and to share and experience with others, this is my favorite because People can experience a different form of imagery other from pictures and videos. Motives keep writer attend in their topics and focus on their goal whether it is to inform or persuade.a One of my motives for writing is when I get a point across to reader this requires me to have prior
