Initially, Brown is terrified of ever hurting or disappointing Faith, describing her as a “blessed angel on Earth.” Faith’s “peeping,” pink-ribbon-clad figure is clearly an idealized version in Brown’s mind of his wife as he trek’s into the unknown. In Faith’s first sentence of the story, she bids Brown to “sleep in [his] own bed,” overtly associating her with a sense of home (2). As Goodman Brown treks out into the dark forest, he tethers his sense of safety and familiarity to his image of Faith’s concerned face. Hawthorne also describes Faith as “aptly named” (1). Religious faith, to Goodman Brown, represents his family, his traditions, and his idea of proper society.
The black box in the lottery was symbolic of the tradition of the Lottery itself, as Mr. Summers even “spoke frequently to the villagers about making a new box…” because he had to interact with it, unlike the other villagers. So in this, he reflects the villagers thought for change when they personally had to face the reality of winning the Lottery. As even the color of the black box is representative of the murder that occurs if you pull out the slip with the dot. Likewise, stool that upholds the black box is representative of the person that upholds the tradition as the one who is stoned to death. As Jackson shows through the villagers "Keep their distance, leaving a space between themselves and the stool."
Although Truman Capote presents the reader with an ordinary, rural town filled with joyous elation and faith, He converts it into a melancholy town lacking any kind of faith residing in it; therefore, Capote reveals that even with the most splendid places, corrupt thoughts and people can taint it to the very core. Fresh in the beginning of the chapter Capote uses a metaphor to present the horrors of what happened in the previous chapters and how it affects those around the. Capote starts out with explaining Herb Clutter 's close friends then he tells of something unusual to the norm, stating, “Today this quartet of old hunting companions had once again gathered to make the familiar journey, but in an unfamiliar spirit and armed with odd, non-sportive equipment - mops and pails, scrubbing brushes , and a hamper heaped with rags and strong detergents.”(Capote 77) They came with different equipment because they came for a different reason. To cleanup the mess left by the murderers. They felt that it was “their duty, a Christian task” to clean up the Clutter’s house but it is actually cleaning the town of the bloodshed and uncertainty the people of Holcomb have.
Kiowa indirectly sets himself up as a very well rounded, gentleman numerous times in this book by what he says and thinks. For example, While everyone else harassed the inexperienced soldier Tim O’Brien for not shaking the dead Vietnamese man’s hand, Kiowa consoled him by saying, “‘You did a good thing today...That shaking hands crap, it isn’t decent.’” (215). It was rare to find characters in this very gruesome and distasteful war story that were as compassionate and kind as Kiowa was and that is why I easily
In the end though, they are both more similar than you’d think. The story “The Handsomest Drowned Man in the World” is a story about a small village that was very lowkey and didn’t have much going on most of the time, until one day while children were out playing on the beach and saw a man washed up ashore and eventually more adults found this man and brought him into their homes. While the men were out looking and checking to see if it were one of their own people, the women of the village were preparing his body for a proper burial. While they
“Homeless man Interviews Himself” By Albert Bliss is basically praising the homeless people and making them seem like heroes. Bliss states “I remember feeling jealous of their carefree lifestyle. No one to answer to and no rules to follow seemed to me like the best kind of life.” This describes how when Bliss was a child he would feel jealous of the homeless people, thus praising the homeless. Bliss also states “Even though I was only twelve years old, I thought of these homeless riffraff as rugged individualists. I equated these men with great American pioneers I was studying in school, guys like Daniel Boone, Davy Crockett, and Jim Bowie.
Bradbury is, again, known for his work in emotion and reader engagement, and he truly does captivate the hearts of readers within the lines of “Calling Mexico.” He leaves us feeling sad for the Colonel’s passing, and happy that he passed while experiencing the place he loved. Even what he could not hear from the window 2,000 miles away, over a phone, he could imagine, as he longed to be back in his hometown. But he couldn’t. With all of the build up about the beauty and grace of Mexico,
In the article “Young Goodman Brown’s ‘evil purpose’: Hawthorne and the Jungian shadow,” written in 2005, the author D.J. Moores is writing towards an audience of people that care about psychology. His audience also includes people that have read the short story “Young Goodman Brown” and have thought about the changes in the main character's life and how it affected him psychologically. Moores is a credible author having written five books and many scholarly articles along with teaching ecstatic poetry at Kean University. Issue section: Moores is writing this article based on the Jungian theory, which is referring to an unconscious aspect of one’s personality that the unconscious ego doesn’t claim as itself.
The writing was sad in general. Reflecting how the author went through a lot, the author even went as far as to rob a man of his money. Or how () described the atmosphere as happiness and joyful, but in reality when everyone was left with their own thoughts, we could tell that they where feeling anything but happiness and joy. They were masking their true feelings just so
He sneaks into his parents' apartment while they are out, and wakes up Phoebe – the only person with whom he seems to be able to communicate his true feelings. Although Phoebe is happy to see Holden, she quickly deduces that he has been expelled, and chastises him for his aimlessness and his apparent dislikes towards everything. When asked if he cares about anything, Holden shares a selfless fantasy he has been thinking about (based on a mishearing of Robert Burns's Comin' Through the Rye): he pictures himself as the sole guardian of thousands of children playing in a huge rye field on the edge of a cliff. His job is to catch the children if, in their abandon, they come close to falling off the brink; to be, in effect, the "catcher in the rye". Because of this misinterpretation, Holden believes that to be the "catcher in the rye" means to save children from losing their

3) In this screen-capture the long shot and contrasting colours of the sky, dark silhouette of the trees and dog kennel on fire cause the audience 's eyes to be immediately drawn to the centre of the frame, creating an underlying tone of shock when it is revealed that Sam had caused it, due to him initially seeming like an innocent character.
