In the meantime, the pain in his face from baking moved to sense a series of electric shocks, which continued to be a stable symptom. Having nothing concrete has been found as the cause, it is easier to be patient declared insane.
“The Scarlet Ibis” Paragraph Kaitlyn In the short story, “The Scarlet Ibis”, by James Hurst, there are many symbols shown throughout the entirety of the story but, the most prominent one is death. This gives light to another concept of taking those we love for granted and treating them like dirt when we should be loving them because, they won't always be there. This is shown multiple times as the story progresses and you see more and more into what was supposed to be a shorter life for Doodle. “Everybody thought he was going to die-everybody except Aunt Nicey, who had delivered him...But he didn't die, and when he was three months old, Mama and Daddy decided they might as well name him.¨, This gives notice that death was supposed to
Doodle!” (564) all the while shielding him from the rain, the final consequence of the pride that ruled the life of the narrator. His guilt from not saving or waiting for Doodle is evident in the way he reacts to Doodle’s body. He panics, realizing the mistake he made in leaving Doodle behind, repeatedly calling out his name as if calling for him to wake up. When it sinks in that Doodle is truly gone, the narrator weeps for Doodle, crying “for a long time, it seemed forever, [he] lay there crying, sheltering [his] fallen scarlet ibis from the heresy of rain” (564), knowing he would never get Doodle
2ND ARGUMENT. Secondly, Gregor Samsa’s diseased physical state can be referred to as the abject, since Kristeva associates illness with the repulsive bodily condition. To begin with, May argues that “human–animal transitions often act as a metaphor for disease and disability” (74). Similarly, Gregor’s parents perceive his transformation as a temporary plight: each time after Grete comes out of her brother’s room, they enquire about the state of things, namely “whether he [Gregor] had perhaps shown a little improvement” (Kafka “Metamorphosis” 84). Moreover, the(?)
the enhancing of the other senses, using blindness to one’s benefit and even the ethical demeanor of an individual who is blind. “In the course of the many lectures-too many lectures-I have given, I’ve observed that people tend to prefer the personal to the general, the concrete to the abstract. I will begin, then, by referring to my own modest blindness. Modest, because it is total blindness in one eye, but only partial in the other.” (377) The writer is uses aphorism refers to the feelings/emotions of himself and of others as well through his established credibility. “...[M]y father and my grandmother, who both died blind- blind, laughing, and brave as I also hope to die.
That choice was to blast spray paint into Paul’s eyes at a young age. Erik made this decision out of anger and by doing so, it has created a new foul relationship between the two siblings. “And I remembered Erik’s fingers prying my eyelids open while Vincent Castor sprayed white paint into them,”(Bloor 263-264). Next, there is the mistake made by Mrs. Fisher. Paul’s mother had enrolled her son into a new middle school with an IEP which considers Paul as being blind.
Page 263 talks about Paul’s memory of losing his eyesight and why it happened. Apparently, Vincent and Erik had spray painted something on a gray wall and all the kids knew who did it, but no one told the adults. Somehow their parents found out and Vincent was in trouble. Believing it was Paul, Erik decided to “punish” him. On pages 263-264, the novel says,
The other theme Good vs. Evil is shown with Atticus and his thoughts about good and evil creatures. He teaches these lessons to Jem and Scout to show them that it is possible to live through the racism in Maycomb. In the movie, Atticus trying to protect his children from the evil isn 't made clear. For example, when Atticus got spit on by Bob Ewell in the movie he makes a big deal about it.
In the poem “Ballad of Birmingham’’ written by Dudley Randal, some fellow peers might disagree with his ways of figurative captivation that he uses about the tragic events displayed to his audience, but believe it or not, there might be a few reasons behind this occurrence- and why it may have surpassed us all. First and foremost, the author took advantage of the heartbreaker and tear-jolter of literature known as Pathos. Pathos is the element of persuasion that was used to make his readers understand the mother’s pain and placement of losing an innocent child; your innocent child. Secondly, he clearly understood his adjectives and word elements throughout the poem and obviously objectified them to his own advantage.
Erik’s choices have caused Paul to be blind, made him think himself as a coward, and weakened the friendships between Paul and Joey. When Paul was young, Erik and a friend of his put spray paint in Paul’s eyes, which left Paul a visually impaired person for the rest of his life. “And I remembered Erik’s fingers prying my eyelids open while Vincent Castor sprayed white paint into them.”(Bloor 263) Erik accused Paul of telling on the teachers and getting Castor in trouble. Erik did not stop Castor, but rather helped him. If Erik had been a good brother, this wouldn’t have happened.
Therefore pain, celebrations and more choice would have made The Giver community more positive. One thing that would have made the community more positive is pain.One example on page 69 is “When he had crushed his finger in the door, he had quickly , gasping into the speaker notified his mother ; she had hastily requisitioned relief-of-pain medication which had promtly delivred to his dwelling.”This supports the claim because if they dont have pain they will not learn from there mistakes. If they don 't learn from their mistakes they will keep doing dumb things. Another detail to support the claim on page 86 is “His skin began to sting.”This supports the claim because if there was pain people would think more about something instead of just doing it. This is why pain would have been important in The Giver
He explains how he overcame his way of keeping his secret of how he was dyslexic, which he didn’t found out till college about after a friend was explains his situation, “ A friend of mine had just been diagnosed with dyslexia and was describing…. the problem I was having.” (Cook 159) Cook exclaims many reasons and information about dyslexia in his essay which he stating, “Dyslexics learn to read, but they are never fully fluent.” (Cook 159) Which I agree I’ve known many people that have struggled with dyslexia. And keeping it a secret must have been the best idea for him so no one will know since he was embarrassed with his condition. Cook already to learn how to read and write but with his dyslexia, it made it harder and harder for him to do his work. What Gareth had trouble with the most was when Cook exclaims, “If I try to write notes by hand write notes by hand while someone is talking…confused feelings” (Cook 159), he explain how when writing notes its harder for when someone is talking because of how fast the person is talking which can confuse a dyslexic person the most.
Harrison has carefully structured the sequence of scenes to create "an accumulation" of ideas about being "Stolen". This is particularly effective in the repetition of scenes to emphasise the stories and show subtle changes in the characters. A good example is the repetition of the Line-Up scene. In "Line-Up age twelve", Shirley is particularly cynical, as she believes they will only be chosen to be unpaid servants for white families, while in the horrific scene in "Line-Up 3" depicts Jimmy’s ignorance to Shirley 's warnings of being chosen and Ruby 's traumatic behaviour from the effects of being chosen. The "Unspoken Abuse" scenes are very effective in showing the deterioration in Ruby 's mental health as she returns from her weekends, as for Jimmy, the irony of wanting so much to be chosen, ends in him suffering corresponding and similar physical and sexual abuse to Ruby.
