Vowell’s use of hyperbole is very important to this story because it allows the story to have a comedic effect so the story won 't get too serious and then turn into a sad story about a girl who can 't find something in common with her father. An example of how the author uses hyperbole for a comedic effect was when she was talking about the main characters experience with guns. The main event refers to guns as sticks of death, the author is also able to make the first time the main character fired a gun into a funny story. That the sound that the gun made was as big as God, and the recoil kicked her back to the ground like a bully. The main character claims that her experience was so bad that she doesn 't want to even touch guns
The Nature of Symbolism within Trethewey’s “Elegy” In this poem “Elegy,” Natasha Trethewey depicts the relationship between herself and her late father by means of a metaphor that carries throughout the entire poem. We see that an elegy is typically used to lament the dead, however the abstract language of this poem sends a more demining message. This connotative thought is exactly what Trethewey chooses to address through subliminal metaphors equipped with items typically used to destroy rather than build, along with symbolism that alludes to fighting adversity. The narrator immediately incorporates symbolism insinuating the emphasis on struggle in the first stanza. Symbolizing adversity, she tells the reader “I think by now the river must be thick with salmon.
With a close reading of Emily Dickinson’s poem 764, ‘My Life Had Stood – A Loaded Gun’ and poem 320, ‘There’s a certain Slant of Light’ I will be comparing and contrasting both poem in terms of the metre, language and themes that can be seen in both and others that are opposite to one another. The main aspects of Emily Dickinson’s poetry is the varying length of each poem, unusual capitalism throughout each, the variant of word choices and the slant or approximate rhyme. I choose poem 320 to compare to poem 764 because while it has similar aspects and themes it is in Dickinson’s ‘Death’ category rather than the ‘Poetic-Self’ category that poem 764 belongs too. ‘My Life Stood Still – A loaded Gun’ is written in common metre, which is popular
She makes it clear when she also uses uncertainty in a universal way because of “We”. Dickinson is also so critical about her emotions and feeling in the poem by expressing:” The Bravest – grope a little.” (Emily Dickinson 13). This means that she is talking about how the bravest people also get scared. This is associated to the point of view, when she tells about all of us are brave but we tingle a little by using “We”. On the other hand, Robert Frost only talks about himself, which makes it first person, by seeing at the poem, “I”.
“Get a Knife, Get a Dog, But get Ride of Guns” is an opinionated short story in which Molly Ivins, the author, presents a different point of view on guns. When Ivins is writing her opinionated short story, she is writing it in first person and how she strongly believes in gun control. Ivins ton comes off as concerned that the definition of the Second Amendment, which is one of the twenty-seven Amendment found in the US Constitution, is being stretched beyond its original intent. In her story Ivins talks about “Judicial doctrine of original intent”, she is referring to the original reasoning that the people who formed the constitution used to create the Amendments. A great example she used in her essay was “How do they know it was to dearest wish of Thomas Jefferson’s heart that teen-age drug dealers should cruise the cities of this nation perforating their fellow citizens with assault rifles?

She writes, “I keep on dying, because I love to live,” in her poem “The Lesson.” Lastly, Angelou commonly wrote about her internal struggles through life. She often used the form of questioning the reader in her work. For example, ¨Does my sassiness upset you? Why are you so upset with gloom?” (“Still I Rise”). Angelou used questions to make the reader feel and understand her point of view.
Baldwin states, “This is explained by the nature of Mrs. Stowe’s subject matter, her laudable determination to flinch from nothing in presenting … and to leave unanswered and unnoticed the only important question: what is was, after all, that moved...people to do such deeds” (“Everybody’s Protest Novel”). Throughout the novel, Stowe writes about many unfortunate events, but does not explicate why the characters are being treated in such a way; it leaves readers asking many questions about why characters feel a certain way. In Chapter 43, George states, “When I think of all she suffered, of my own early sufferings, of the distresses and struggles of my heroic … I have no wish to pass for an American, or to identify myself with them. It is with the oppressed, enslaved African race that I cast in my lot; and, if I wished anything, I would wish myself two shades darker, rather than one lighter” (Stowe 491). This passage leaves the reader questioning why George decided to leave to Liberia rather than stay in America to fight for people like himself.
The way Owen crafts the poem clearly shows the ‘pity’ that he emphasizes throughout his poetry. His choice of language and structure illustrate his experience and emotions regarding the tragedy of war. Also, the image of horrendous conditions and psychologically disturbed soldiers continuously remind
This is yet another example of how a man can tragically break the spirit and heart of a woman unknowingly. This tool is only used though so authors can begin to unravel the true purpose of literature, and the purpose of their literature focuses on why these women are in so much pain and why they won't leave or try to escape their situation and what keeps them trapped there. The author builds the catalyst so they can focus on their true goal of writing about what occurs during the reaction, this is the true purpose of authors literature, and in this case, the purpose of the literature is to tunnel deep into the female heart and mine out its troubles, its problems, and everything that makes it tick. All of these authors are focusing on the affliction of the female heart. The authors write these women in instances of weakness so they can take a reader through the process of all the things they had to overcome to emerge stronger and more empowered on the other side of their situation,or tragically takes a reader through the events that lead to the main characters not being able to hold on any longer and what lead to their ultimate
