She uses similes when she is judging the stranger sitting in front of her and uses them to compare his appearance. She is observing his shoes and mentions: “...complex patterns like a set of intentional scars,” and “He is wearing red like the inside of the body exposed.” she includes these comparisons to illustrate a more vibrant vision of his outfit to the reader. Moving forward, she also includes her judgment of his appearance and the way he comes across to her. “This life he could take so easily and break across his knee like a stick …” she mentions this to have the reader believe that the person sitting there with her looks shady and sketchy like a thug in a dark alley. This does not only illustrate how he appears to be but also how she feels in those moments that feel like the earth just stops rotating and the feeling of hopelessness is
Also, this paper will analyze the formal structure of the painting through color, lines, space and mass, and composition. And furthermore, recognize the symbolism documented in the painting for iconographic analysis. In doing so, this will highlight and comment on important characteristics of Omnibus Life in London as it yields new information regarding the emerging shift in social inequality. Through formal analysis, the visual characteristics of the work present an interesting insight into the painting. The first emotion that I experienced with this work was claustrophobia and crowdedness.
The portrait was 2D with 3D texture including the lines, and the color scheme use were majority dark colors. Harmony was use in this painting, combining the elements in this painting made the painting flow smoovely. The work of art that Mackalene created means that “Black is Beautiful,” from past to present notions of the black culture in America. The artistic choices made by the Mackalene in this portrait shows me, in my eyes that the women is doing what she wants, getting what she wants while also getting what she
In the play A Streetcar Named Desire, Williams shows that when one chooses to blind themselves in order to obtain desire, one sets up ruin. He emphasizes his meaning with symbols. Williams focuses on symbols that suggest enlightenment or ignorance in order to make his audience aware of the main characters chosen blind spots; as well as, their desires and the impacts that their blind spots and desires have. Williams meaning first appears when Stanley hits Stella. For a short moment after he strikes her, Williams allows Stella to be able to see Stanley clearly.
(This is relating the world 's darkness to these strong colors. She tells him that she can smudge the badness away with the crayons. The orange and red crayons are her child 's power and individuality.) 2. Is the poem itself a metaphor?
Lord Byron in this work describes the beauty of women by comparing her external and internal features to unordinary objects. For that matter he uses metaphors, simile and personification. Lines 9 is great example of poet’s usage of metaphors: “Which waves in every raven tress”. The historical research of the time when the poem was written showed that back in those days the beauty standards were different, this is what Lord Byron portrait as a beautiful in his poem. Blond hair and pail skin was defined as beautiful, though the poet said compare women’s hair to a raven tress which is more of a dark colour, he states that this is what makes her face lighter,
In this way, H.D. quite bluntly communicates his more cynical take on Helen. Because Helen embodied both beauty and violence, Poe and H.D. were able to write two poems on her at opposite ends of the emotional spectrum. Where Poe writes in an idealistic tone, H.D.
In conclusion, Emily Dickinson has her own personal and unique meaning for the words darkness/dark and sight. The metaphor of darkness in we grow accustomed to the dark overall is being compared to life and how you handle it. Moreover, the metaphor of sight in before I got my eyes put out is talking about how in life; we don 't appreciate things until it has been taken from us or we don’t have it anymore. Furthermore you could say that both of these poems refer to a different aspect of life. Everyone has their own perspective or idea of darkness and sight and this was Emily Dickinson’s unique view on these
Jonathan Swift’s scatological poem, The Lady’s Dressing Room, is used to satirise both women’s vain attempts to match an ideal image and men’s expectation that the illusion of perfection is real, both in public and in private. Strephon is a vehicle used in order to investigate and demystify Celia’s space, that is to say, to uncover the mystery behind female beauty. The female body is violated by the male figure, thus highlighting the key theme of intrusion. This is highlighted through Swift’s choice of vocabulary and the image of Strephon who ‘stole in, and took a strict Survey’ (Swift 7) of Celia’s dressing room. Both the words, ‘stole’ and ‘took’, explicitly suggest that he is stealing from her, and what he is stealing is Celia’s privacy.
The use of colors can help people to fully understand what you are trying to convey. In the story The Great Gatsby by F. Scott. Fitzgerald, color symbolism is widely used to show the emotions and the downfall of the characters as well as the underlying messages that are being portrayed. For example, the color white beautifully and adequately shows how Daisy was corrupt on the inside, but very lovely on the outside. Also, the color gray shows what happens after the bright green envy takes place within a person.
