The poem has a stilted metre and violent lexis ‘such as ‘Dead, strangle, puce, curse, and stabbed ’which emphasises this further. This poem is an intimate look inside the mind of ‘Miss Havisham’, a character in Charles Dickens ‘Great Expectations’. Both Dickens book and Duffy’s poem illustrate Havisham to be a bitter woman after having been left at the alter many decades ago. Havisham and Blanche are comparable characters as both display an intense refusal to change, both still live in the past. Havisham spends all her time focused on her ex-fiancé, in ‘Great
The way she sets herself apart from him is by calming herself down and holding herself back in order to be polite. She often beholds the hidden dog inside of her. The speakers initial hostility whenever she and her former lover meet reflect itself immediate warning she give to the “bitch insider [her]” not to start “growling”; while once the man may have been a “trespasser,” she says, he is now merely an “old acquaintance”. The conflict feelings suggested by this conversation with her inner self are quickly dramatized. However as this continues, “a kind word” from the man can easily show how dismissive and forgiving she may be at some points.
Kambili refuses to implicate her father in his own acts of violence through the formulation of her sentences. She removes the blame from her phrases and in this way power relations are depicted through the use of specific linguistic choices and language placement. I wanted to say “Yes, Papa,” because he was right, but the burning on my feet was climbing up, in swift courses of excruciating pain, to my head and lips and eyes.” (194) Her admiration and respect for him causes her to remove the blame and ignore Eugene’s abusive actions. Kambili continuously removes agency from her statements when talking about her father.

The poem "Kindness" by Naomi Shihab Nye speaks about how you experience kindness and what it really is. The main point in this poem is that in order to experience people's kindness you need to experience hurt, sorrow, and loneliness. The author says that when you loose everything and have no one or thing that when kindness comes along it lifts you up "and then goes with you everywhere/ like a shadow or a friend" (33-34). When portraying this message the author uses a sad but hopeful tone to send the message she wants to say. This tone helps portray the message because you can feel how sad someone is when they are lonely and they have nothing.
Through punctuation and allusions, Bishop manifests her theme that one can be hiding anxiety that no one else but the early mornings see. By using dashes, ellipses, and parentheses, Bishop conveys that the poem is simply what the speaker is thinking. “Questions- if that is what they really are-” proves that she is doubting everything running through her mind. While in “Five A.M.” the speaker release his worries as they occurred to him, here the speaker clings to her worries and multiplies them, a sure sign of anxiety that not everyone sees. “Of glassy veins…” shows getting lost in one’s own head.
The author conveys a clear image with words that translates the suffering of the character in a bright light to readers. The sentences are well constructed that even though they might not stop with periods in between, Tallent is able to get away with only using commas in his long sentences with the placement of the words. Turtle’s struggle with her inner monologue is interesting to analyze due to the fact that comes off as an authentic human emotion as she fights with herself over the words she has spoken to her classmate. The phrase, “that’s not me, that’s not who I am,” shows readers the instant regret she feels once her words are out in the open. The inner struggle through the use of language also demonstrates that Turtle is not very aware of the power she holds as a person.

In Anne Bradstreet’s “The Four Ages of Man,” “The Vanity of All Worldly Things,” and “Contemplations” – at length took quite some time to read and analyze – her use of vanity in each of the poems seems to be a recurring theme. Puritans believed that vanity was one of the key sins before God. Notice, vanity’s reference five times within the pages of “The Four Ages of Man” and in “The Vanity of All Worldly Sin.” She brilliantly alternates the use of vanity and vain throughout,” however, in “Contemplations” she cleverly uses vanity with a play on the word use as just vain.
Much like the Laughing Man, the Chief morphs from a childish happiness, to an adult realism. Throughout this story there are many reminders of these two characters’ dynamic progressions. The poppy-petal mask showcases their transition from child-like to adult-like throughout the story. This story focuses on the fact that the characters are faced with the unfortunate force of making this devastating switch of personalities, and it is all captured by a simple head ornament.

Dr. Martin Luther King was a famous leader of the African American civil rights movement from 1955 to 1968, most notably known for his peaceful protests and speeches. In his speeches and other writings, he would try to persuade those opposed to his cause to join him by using rhetorical devices. The most common rhetorical devices he used in his writing were pathos, emotional devices, and logos, logical devices. Both pathos and logos were used in his two famous pieces, “I Have a Dream” speech and “Letter From Birmingham Jail” to help persuade his audience. The effectiveness of pathos and logos can differ tremendously from person to person, depending on an individual’s thinking or emotions towards a group or cause.
