The tree that yielded no flowers was compared to the willow tree, a tree that naturally doesn’t have flowers. Willow trees have branches that are bendable, whip-like and swing easily in a breeze. Without being tied down by the weight of the flowers, gave the tree the ability to sway in the wind and nature. If personified, having the ability to sway could mean the flexibility of travel and/or not having many responsibilities. I personally think that Chiyojo compared herself to a tree because she felt like she did not have any flowers
London uses relatively plain and simple diction, but at the same time using imagery. London describes the morning of the man. Day had dawned cold and gray when the man turned aside from the main Yukon trail. He climbed the high earth-bank where a little-traveled trail led east through the pine forest... There was no sun or promise of sun, although there was not a cloud in the sky.
One main idea of landscape architecture is to persuade people to interact with nature and to enjoy and help it, not to destroy or harm it. Nature is as much as part of this world as humans are; without nature or the wilderness there would be no society. Leopold states, “Wilderness is the raw material out of which man has hammered the artifact called civilization” (264). Human grew out of nature. In the essay “Wilderness” Aldo Leopold talks about nature as if it is a masterpiece painted by the earth or as if it is an ancient artifact in a famous museum.
the peom has a slow rhythm because, it is talking about serious topics. The poem uses figurative language to show deeper meaning, to help bring you into the reality of the dangerous time it was written. although it is a short poem, it brings you back into time and lets you see how it was durring those times The poem uses senses to help paint a picture of the spring time when every flower and tree is blooming.

The small sprout is growing without any sunlight or the help of humans or robots. Nature can flourish without humans because they pollute the world with trash. In “There Will Come Soft Rains”, the robotic house reads a poem by Sara Teasdale. “Not one would mind, neither bird nor tree, if mankind perished utterly;/ And Spring herself…. / would scarcely know that we were gone” (Bradbury 171).
Beams of warm light and soft background noises of chirping birds and distant running water while standing in the midst of grand shades of green and brown; this is often the image that pops into a person’s head once the word “nature” is uttered, not the extreme conditions it crafts that take more lives than one can count. Nature is all around us and it is a part of us, humanity was born from it and it can just as easily be destroyed by it. In the short story “To Build a Fire” by Jack London, the literary era of Naturalism is evident in how, in spite of all efforts to the contrary, the protagonist is ultimately defeated by nature. His death was not born out of some malicious hidden agenda by nature but rather by the man’s own arrogance; nature
In the quote, “There is no lack of water here unless you try to establish a city where no city should be” (Abbey 126), to support his claim of having enough water in the park since the park is not meant for a great amount of people to live in. This quote relates to the theme of Quality of Life because it deals with life satisfaction of living in the wilderness. In addition, it also deals with the environment because the wilderness contains water in different forms, and social connectedness to show that people should not live in the wilderness or else it would become a
Theoretical Physicist Albert Einstein says, “Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better.” Essayist John Muir and Poet William Wordsworth both had one thing in common; they saw the beauty of nature and the correlation it had with life and they rejoiced in it. While John Muir revealed his strong, spiritual relationship with nature. On the other hand, William Wordsworth’s colorless and tedious outlook on the world is enlivened by nature in his poem “I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud” He enlivened his outlook on the world and saw the beauty nature brought to it. Both authors use imagery and personification to vividly illustrate a picture of the natural beauty they were surrounded by and how they rejoiced in
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. He also points out in his writing that we would not know what good is if we don’t experience bad. Those are some examples of how Dunbar writes most of his poetry on serious
The essays “The Lesson” by Toni Cade Bambara and “Lions and Tigers and and Bears” by Bil Buford, both challenge the ideas that individuals sometimes feel bonded by, beliefs that stunt growth and freedom. These essays take place in New York City, circa 1970 and 2000 respectively. In Buford’s essay, the reader is given a historical account of Central Park, the murders, past visitors and lastly the people he meet that night. A park one might say mimics the atmosphere of a wilderness, though devoid of the animals that prevent one from immersing oneself with nature. Funnily enough, it is “our” nature that avert one from visiting, for fear of being targeted by murderers and senseless idiots Buford reasons.
This is similar to “Nothing Gold Can Stay” by Robert Frost because in both poems it speaks about the idea of things changing and never going back to what they originally were. Another similarity between these poems is that the central image you get from it is about nature. In “Nothing Gold Can Stay”, it’s based around flowers, gold, and the Garden of Eden. While in “Birches”, it is based around birches, obviously. A final similarity between these two poems is that they both talk about how a certain force causes change.
A Phrase 's Meaning and A Phrases Phrasing In the poem, "To Cole, The Painter, Departing for Europe" by W.C. Bryant, the narrator uses the meaning of words, phonetic phrasing, and poetic devices, to illustrate the major scenic differences between Europe and America. When the narrator describes America in stanza number two, the narrator uses personification, alliteration, and punctuation, to make the stanza, when read out loud, sound just as wild and undeveloped as the landscape it describes. When the narrator describes Europe in stanza number three, the use of commas and the sounds of the words make the stanza sound as developed and obedient as the narrator 's description of Europe. In the second stanza, the narrator depicts "A living
Art Abstract- "Cora Kneeling at the Feet of Tamenund" Of course, the Hudson River region during the eighteenth century was not all about Ferries, Canals, Railroads, and commerce. Even more, the unique beauty of the Hudson River Scenery and its mountainous is considered to be a manifestation of god. The transcendental nature of the Hudson River attracted many landscaping artists who were captive of its beauty. For instance, the Hudson River Art School did not had a physical location but it was a group of artists driven by their passion, to walk on foot along the Hudson River to appreciate nature and to be inspired by its beauty. Thomas Cole was the principal founder of the Hudson River Art School.
In Spring Marsh, there is no empty space since the entire painting is filled. In this two-dimensional piece, the trees in the background are smaller implying they are further away. Square is a very spacious piece because it is composed of long, thin lines and there are no solid masses incorporated into the sculpture. Two-dimensional
Transcendentalist leaders such as Ralph Waldo Emerson, Margaret Fuller, and as well as Thoreau focused on living a full and pure lifestyle away from corporate-created society. They had transcendent knowledge about themselves and the natural world. The transcendentalists concerned themselves with not only literature but also music, poetry and art. Emerson wrote an essay for “The Dial” titled Thought on art. In this essay, he divided art into useful art and fine arts.
