In Hold Up, Beyoncé somehow found a way to continue to love her husband, even with all of the grief he has put her through. 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
Nathan Hale’s Major accomplishments, later life, death, and how did his accomplishments change the world “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. They make you feel like you can do anything whenever you want.
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.
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. The purpose of the poem is to show that even doing everyday activities, such as a simple game of pool, can bring out a person’s deepest, darkest emotions. This poem inspires the reader to leave toxic relationships. Relationships should be a two way street and a couple should treat each other right.
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. In “Lucinda Matlock,” the character Lucinda was percieved to have a very eventful life.
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 doesn’t seem to develop in the story until she faces life or death at the end, she may have never developed if have it not been for the Misfit. 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.” The grandmother also, although she barely knew him, thought that Red Sammy was a good person because he let what he thought were good country people charge the gas. When the Misfit shows up at the
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.
He wondered what was wrong with Bartleby and tried many ways to help, but he never accepted the Layer’s requests. 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.” (Kerouac 10) The author wants to live and also so wants to die. Obviously he is not liking something in his life to make him think this.
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.
