Amy Winehouse’s, You Know I’m No Good, she clearly states that she is the toxic one in the relationship and that even though she is an adulterer, she still longs for her partner. And lastly, Shakespeare’s sonnet 152, he expresses that he wants to continue an affair with a married woman, because he is egotistical and greedy. Not everyone walking this earth has pure intentions at heart, when it comes to things like love and these songs and sonnets prove that. Love is not always effervescent and alluring, it can be gloomy and full of malicious
“I only regret that I have but one life to lose for my country,” was one of Nathan’s last words when he died on September 22, 1776. Could you have imagined how it would feel to die then when he was so young. Those were not the only famous words he said though. He also said “I wish to be useful, and every kind of service necessary to the public good is honorable by being necessary.” I don’t know how these amazing people can come up with these words when they speak.
Many families bicker with each other, and there is a lot of strife in one’s experience from being a part of a family. But it is less common to have a conflict that keeps members from commutating and leaves them bitter. “Sonny’s Blues” by James Baldwin and “I Stand Here Ironing” by Tillie Oslen are short stories that depict the difficulty a family can face trying to survive below the poverty line. The circumstances that causes their struggle varies and the manner in which they pursue resolution varies as well. The dynamics of family for both short stories are very similar in that both narrators have conflict with the character for which they are responsible and care for.
Symbolically, the game of pool shows the struggles within the Emerson’s relationship. The relationship is illustrated as a lost cause and dragged on, when the narrator is exhausted, yet still continues to stay in the relationship. She fears that one day her partner will leave her.
In the Spoon River Anthology series, two of Edgar Lee Masters’ poems are about two characters named Lucinda Matlock and George Gray. In these poems, Masters describes Lucinda Matlock as being vivacious and lively while describing George Gray as dull and monotonous; despite differences, both characters seem to have the same philosophy on life. These two characters are similar and different in many ways, including tone and characterization. Although these characters differ throught the ways they live their lives, both Lucinda and George share the tone of reflection by the way they describe their past.
She shows how much of a negative impact it had made on Aunt Georgiana using imagery. She is always exhausted and has to look after her children. Cather admires the individuals who had enough strength to give up an old, comfortable, life for one that had uncertain outcomes. The use of symbolism is primal as well in A Wagner's Matinee. Aunt Georgiana symbolizes pioneer life, while Clark symbolizes city life.
The grandmother in “A Good Man is Hard to Find” has a moral code that she follows but by the end of the story the Misfit makes question her moral code. A moral code isn’t something that necessarily means good; a moral code is a set of beliefs and behaviors that people abide by to live what they consider to be a reasonable. The grandmothers moral code is based on appearance over substance, Christianity, and ladylikeness, for example, when the family was getting in the car to leave the grandmother was dressed very nicely so just in case there was an accident “anyone seeing her dead…would know at once that she was lady.”
In The Cog, Charles Fritch uses symbolism to show readers that life choices can cause regret in future years. The tough decisions that people make can cause the most fulfilling life or they can wake up one day miserable. James Maxwell was one who wished he had followed his dreams instead of living with a more practical life. He had a very successful life but he wasn’t doing what he had always dreamt of. He was the president of the world but by his standards, that wasn’t enough.
On the contrary, in Crane's story the ending is positive and is marred with optimism. The society was confined in a rigid way of thought, but this was changed when Jack Potter went against community norms and came back home with a bride. The ending of any story is essential in that it serves as a fulfillment for the audience, but the setting is also
One poems is perfectly fine with dying and the other is skeptical on how it will happen and what happens furthermore. In the poem “ If we must die” the author states “ If we must die, let it not be like hogs” (Mckay 1) The author is okay with dying but does not want it to turn out horrible. He wants it to not be terrifying and just to be peaceful. In the poem “ Bowery Blues Excerpt” the author says “ I want to live, I want to die.”
Some people might actually choose to die to save someone they love, rather than live and have to watch them die. But they don 't seem to take into consideration how lost and lonely the person they left might feel when they figured out someone they loved dies for them. In some cases, they may even begin to wish it was themselves who had died instead. That is how a character from the TV series "Supernatural" felt when his brother and best friend sold his own soul to save him. When he died, he didn 't think ahead to how his little brother was going to deal with his death, but it was his choice.
John Proctor died to protect his honor and the honors of the others that died but his death did just the opposite because he forfeited his treasured honor by becoming one of the hanged. Reverend Hale tried to warn him of this even till the point when he was hung. Hale screamed out, “Shall the dust praise him [Proctor]? Shall the worms declare his [Proctor’s] truth?”(Miller 134). Proctor’s death was meant to preserve his name, but he ultimately lost his life.
The poem of “A Psalm of Life” is less depressing than “The Tide Rises, The Tide Falls” from Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. Longfellow supports his claims by writing how a person needs to know how life works by not being happy nor sad. The author’s purpose is to point out that we're here for just a small amount of time and that we need to learn to survive to make the best out of it. The author writes in an influential tone for young adults and teens to recognize that there are still lots to learn up ahead in our journey.
The poem I will be analyzing will be “Uncoiling” by Pat Mora. The theme the author is portraying is the personification of a tornado . It has a dark/fearful/grim tone as she describes the storm that is accruing. The author is using similes, and personification to convey the theme. The very first figurative language used in the poem is personification.
“Life begins at your comfort zone.” Neale Walsh once said. Many share this same outlook in life while others may say otherwise. Al Young shares the same belief in life as Neale Walsh in his short poem. “For Poets”, by Al Young, is an uplifting and inspirational poem.
