As was portrayed in the novel, “Louie and Phil’s hope displaced their fear and inspired them to work toward their survival, and each success renewed their physical and emotional vigor” (155). This shows that just a sprinkle of hope can benefit a person’s life and give them the determination to carry on. Without hope, no one would feel inclined to change their circumstances and so some might continue to live in a damaging environment. Louie had this same experience, “The alcohol had brought on a pleasant numbness….When the harsh push of memory ran through Louie, reaching for his flask became as easy
At the beginning of the poem, “You do not have to be good” is used to not only speak to the narrator but set the course for which readers will follow. “You do not have to walk on your knees… repenting.” is another example of the mesmerizing words Oliver uses to aid in the reader’s emotional connection to the narrator. The poem begins with these lines to represent how a person dealing with limitations may feel and respond to these. Still, these thoughts are quickly disregarded by the narrator and readers become informed that such feelings of self-blame are petty and unnecessary.
Trethewey immediately uses imagery to set the scene inviting your senses to help illustrate the image she has already relayed. This helped depict a more in-depth image of her poem “elegy”. After reading this poem several times, to build understanding, and break down literary elements; I came to the conclusion that Trethewey emphasizes the struggle to find balance. The balance between metaphor and symbolism, increasing throughout the entire poem showing battle between connotation and detonation. The struggle in which she used to connotation to portray the bigger picture, but also balanced out by denotation to show the subliminal messages of the relationship shared between the narrator’s father and herself.
In Dunbar’s poem “Sympathy” there is end rhyme present but no real rhyme scheme. Those are some of the rhythmic elements Dunbar uses in his writing. Dunbar writes his poems on very serious matters, such as life and dreams and identity. In his poem “We Wear the Mask” Dunbar writes about people wearing masks but the true meaning of the poem is how people will try to hide their identity to look like a better more perfect person. In his poem “Life” dunbar writes about how life is not always good and at t8imes life seems to be really bad.
This, in turn, this would contribute to a central idea and the overlying themes that encompass this poem. At the beginning of the poem, Neruda states “I can write the saddest verses tonight,” a line which is repeated two other times and is the same as the title of the poem itself. The repetition of these lines helps establish both the mood of the poem, sadness and sorrow, and in the emphasis of the idea that this is the moment for Neruda to fully express his own feelings. This mood is further established in the beginning of the poem, in the form of imagery, where “the night is full of stars, twinkling blue, in the distance,” creating an image of luminous and shining stars that are able to emit light and be seen from.

All the works in the gallery were exploring different ideas that are important, but often overlooked in today’s culture. The idea of loving yourself, seemingly obvious, but often when an individual does truly love himself or herself, it is confused for cockiness, egotism, and narcissism. Czech’s work counters this cultural norm with her manipulation of Ginsberg’s poem, creating an important reminder to love oneself. Another work, by David Horvitz called “Mood Disorders”, explores the idea of different types of mental illnesses as defined by different Internet sources.
Using figurative languages such as symbols and metaphors and combining it with musical devices like repetition, allows Dylan convey the theme of the poem, which is to stir up anger and rage to fight against mortality. Dylan practices the use of metaphors to help provoke anger in his poem. By using metaphors, he is able to say something that has more meaning than using singular words. For instance, when he writes in the first stanza, “Do not go gentle into that good night” (1), and “dying of the light” (3), whenever he says “good night” or “light,” it is a metaphor for death and life.
The cruise ship was actually quite big and more spacious than I originally thought; however, that did nothing to ease my anxiety of being trapped in an enclosed area for so long with my family. Before you say anything, yes, I do love my family (most of the time), but no one wants to be that close to your family for days at a time. Anyway, our first day aboard the ship was fine because we knew that when we awoke the next morning we would be at our first island and that would give us a chance to leave the constricting room we stayed in and go explore. This pattern continued on for most of the trip, us going to sleep while being crammed together and waking up in a new place that would allow us to run free. I enjoyed those days, the islands were beautiful and with them came many opportunities.
