Watanabe, or the Bird, would push Louie to extreme limits, depriving him physically and slowly shattering his mentality. Even after being rescued and arriving back home, the suffering never left. “All he had left was his alcohol and his resentment, the emotion that, Jean Amery would write, “nails every one of us onto the cross of his ruined past”” (Hillenbrand 374).
Darwish mourns the loss of Anat, and calls for her return in his poem “Phases of Anat.” He states, I want you both, together, love and war. "Oh Anat to hell with me …. I love you, /Anat! ... We broke/like a fence over your absence …/Our prayers calcified. Nothing/lives after your death … Perhaps/new goddesses will descend upon/us in your absence and we’ll be/ruled by a mirage … You’ll return./You’ll return the land of truth and/allegory, the land of Canaan—the/beginning/the land that opens/between your communal breasts/and your communal thighs, so that the miracles will
The power of Tita’s tears has been demonstrated multiple times throughout her life. Magical Realism: “She felt and urge to run far, far away, to shield the tiny flame John had coaxed up inside her from her mother’s chilling presence. It was as if Mama Elena’s spit had landed dead-center on a fire that was about to catch
Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I’ve watched c-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain. Time to die.” Batty pierces Deckard’s blind hopes by these sentences, transmitting to Deckard a massage that people’s lives are only “tears in rain.” This soliloquy reminds people of Nietzsche again: in Thus Spoke Zarathustra, Zarathustra speaks: “My death I praise to you, the free death which comes to me because I want it. And when shall I want it?
Within the lines 12 and 13 the reader can began to acknowledge that he suffers from feeling lifeless and defeated without her presence. The insertion of the words, “Mute, motionless, aghast,” provide the reader with evidence he has become silent,
For example, the scene really shows how much Gatsby went out of his way to get as many flowers as he can fit in Nick’s house. Also in the movie, Gatsby is extremely awkward around Daisy, even though he is in “love” with her. For instance, he first runs away and is soaked after running outside in the pouring rain, he then clumsily breaks Nick’s clock, and when Nick tries to leave the two alone, Gatsby runs with Nick yet again. All these actions are emphasizing Gatsby’s creepy, stalker-like characteristics. However, the flowers really stresses the main topic; Gatsby is overly obsessed with Daisy.
While both Macbeth and Banquo fought valiantly together during the war to ensure a victory for Scotland, Banquo remains a loyal supporter of King Duncan during the play, while Macbeth turns on the king and anyone that he perceives as an enemy, due to his ambitious desire to become Scotland’s ruler. This will lead to his plans to murder Duncan and eventually Banquo, to ensure his place on the throne. For Macbeth, his ambition to become king intensifies when the three witches declare “All hail Macbeth, that shalt be king hereafter” (I.3.50), knowing of his ambition and desires. To Macbeth, the witches revealed his destiny, and so his newly founded quest to achieve this destiny leads to him planning to kill Duncan so that he may take the throne for himself. However, the three witches also reveal to Banquo that a line of kings will come from his family, describing to him that “thou shalt get kings, though thou be none” (I.3.67).
In the last two lines given below a tune of melancholy produces suppressed pains of crying somewhere in our universal human soul: “When she danced like a torn wagtail in Indra’s court Bengal’s river field, wild violets wept at her feet like anklet bells.” (Lines: 14-15) Here by using images of Behula’s mournful dance, torn wagtail, weeping Bengal’s river, field, wild violets the poet marks very artfully a melancholic atmosphere. Even such remorseful crying is not absent in the poem “Ah Kite”. In this poem every line echoes the sound of crying creating a melancholic mood into our thoughts. The title itself heaves a sigh in the first two lines: “Ah kite, golden-winged kite, stop crying this noon Of tearful clouds, while flying around the Dhanshniri river.” (Lines: 1-2) Here the poet requests the mournful golden-winged kite to stop crying in such a state of melancholia already prevailing in this country of Dhanshniri river, signifying our country Bangladesh abounding in rivers. Such moribund river partakes naturally of Jibanananda’s melancholy.
Saviour Without Sin It was the end of the world, their eyes watching God. Clouds of smoke covered the sun as a misty rain fell from the heavens, as though God himself was crying over the brutal sacrifice of his army. The tears burned faintly on Jane’s skin; the pain of loss, the fear of never falling in love again. She closed her eyes and covered her face as another explosion rocked the ground. The roar of the guns and screams of their victims echoed in her ears.
