She means for him to realize that, unless he finds the strength and the courage to shed his developed false image, his poetry, the thing he cherishes most, the figurative encapsulation of Jason, will inevitably lose its value. His falseness, in a sense, plagues the beautiful realities of his poems, which are symbols for Jason’s self. In many ways, Mme. C is Jason 's call to reality. In a
Furthermore various literary techniques such as symbols, extraposition, and imagery add to the meaning of the poem Through form and literary techniques, Robert Pack emphasizes, through the answers of the “echo,” that no matter how frightening life seems to be, it is important to take a “leap.” The form of the poem is structured effectively to enhance the readers’ understanding of the author 's intentions The voice B the superficial aspect of the author’s person, or it can be said to represent the goural people on their fears and insecurity about the future.

He just wanted his fellows to stop being miserable in this horrid cave, but in return he just has received rejection. It’s absolutely comprehensible if his sadness turns into rage. It’s completely understandable if he loses his patience, if he decided to leave them in the cave to rot, if he in the light of the sun cracked his fingers just about to tell all of them in 240 characters the little capacity that their brains
He is truly alone in a cruel world. Nature seems to mock the creature, as “the cold stars shone in mockery” because “all, save [him], were at rest or enjoyment”, due to the creature’s loss of his only near-companions (117, Chapter 16). Simple cottage folk that he observed from a great distance were his only source of contact to the world. He wished for their friendship, however, he was only met with their horror and disgust. The creature only desires friends who will show him love and affection but receives only pain and suffering.
Isolation of the human heart results in the inability to connect and take part in a greater existence, whereas blindness of the human eye gives way to the truth and tenderness of humanity found in the wonders of this world. In Raymond Carver’s short story, “Cathedral”, the nameless narrator seems to exhibit behavioral patterns of an addict, tending to detach himself from the plot and all relationships that he continually fails to confront throughout life. The central figure, who abhors the blind, is ignorant of his own constraints, which prevent him from recognizing the traces of transcendence in humanity that lies beyond the temptation of physical pleasure. Through the utilization of the communion model, by way of first-person narration, characterization, and extended metaphors, Carver reveals the main character’s journey of rapport, which is indicative of a human’s limited sight of truth and understanding, leading one to search outside the scope of curiosity for a more fulfilling life. One may begin to apprehend Carver’s true message throughout “Cathedral” by first considering the significant role that the first-person perspective of the main character plays in the basic plot scheme.
It is spoken from the perspective of the Hollow man, “The Hollow Men” seems to be in a wasteland, living between salvation and Damnation. The whole text gave the reader a sense of gloom and despair. It is interesting how the narrator spoke from an objective point of view on his own experience. The statement like tone gave us a sense of lifeless emptiness. From the description of the setting we can conjecture that these people are in the progress of

After the First World War a generation of men returned home with distorted views of life, questioning their purpose and existence in this world. The Waste Land offers no consolation to those searching for answers, instead it cements the absence of spirituality and religion in the modern world, and extinguishes any glimmer of prospect in the afterlife. While it appears that Eliot directly addresses this lost generation of aimless men, desperately searching for reassurance or even support in their beliefs, Eliot maintained his high expectations of readers. The Waste Land, upon first reading, can be a perplexing and obscure experience due to the amount of allusions, interrelationships and of course the overwhelming amount of voices that are constantly interrupting each other. However, it becomes clear that Eliot’s use of these literary techniques is to emphasis the idea that the modern world is no world at all, but actually a living Hell.
It is based on the view of the modern man who expects nothing in life, or indeed after death. Its main effect is one of misery, hopelessness and nothingness” (Thornley, 163).

As such, the play carries the elements of the existentialist philosophy; it believes that man is left in a spiritual void. As well as, it is used to evoke the aimless existence and the loss of hope of the characters.
