This action scene affects the story not only because it can be labeled as the climax, but also because it keeps the reader wanting to continue to read in the story. In another part of the story, the author of The Poisonwood Bible shows another action scene when she writes, "Ants. We were walking on, surrounded, enclosed, enveloped, being eaten by ants" (Kingsolver 299). The previous quote demonstrates a high-action scene because the village is attacked by ants. The ants destroy many of the houses and objects in the village.
The rainbow-ridge beautifully ties back to the first line of the poem, which links the idea of twilight, a colorful time of the day that is full of reds, oranges, blues, and yellows, to the coloration found in the baggy ridges of the iguana. This connection of the sun to the iguana almost gives the iguana a mystical aura, leaning into the poem’s fable-like quality and mood. This fable-like tone is further described in the prey that the Iguana eats. The anthill is described succinctly with one word, which was “monastic”, which means a monastery or monk-like quality. Not only does this word describe the ant-hill, the inanimate object the ants live in, which are full of cells and chambers like a monastery, but also describes the inhabitants inside the anthill.
Bond uses imagination to bring you to an Atlanta club early in Ray’s career. This illustration is presented in the poem with Ray working for tips. Even if I have not seen Mr. Charles perform, Bond does an excellent job with the metaphors “Sweat strangles mute eyes” and “Molded on Africa’s anvil, tempered down home”. This easily made me picture an African American man, from the south, without the use of his eyes. Bond used absolute precision in his word choice when he described Ray Charles.
Characters like Okonkwo and Nathan can represent different things or ideas. Objects like yams and a rocking chair can symbolize ideas like wealth and patriarchy. Both of these authors were very artistic in their symbolism, with even the slightest pronunciation failure making a preacher in the congo talk about death and pain instead of love and happiness. “Living fire begets cold, impotent ash”, the main character realizes his life and actions symbolically affect his family. Its novels like these that have so much symbolism and greater meaning, forcing you to constantly ponder what the author’s intent truly is, that make the read that much
Many people of the Harlem Renaissance and Black Arts movements, along with later movements, described Toomer’s work in Cane as an inspiration in their own works. “When the writers of the early Harlem Renaissance read Cane, they were pleasantly surprised. Jean Toomer mostly associated with progressive white writers of the late 1910s and 1920s. After writing Cane, he was proclaimed by the black writers as the most promising black writer of that time” (Whisenton 5). His work in Cane was applauded for its recognition of African American culture and struggles, along with its representation of sexual issues that are still overly present.
At sunrise animals wake up and move across the colourful plains to venerate the newborn king. The king’s successor, just a baby, is held up in the sun to be adored by the subjects. Quite the opposite is the place of hyenas and the dwelling place of Scar. Dark and almost desaturated colours here bring in an air of gloominess connected with the “dark” character of the king’s rival. This opposition has something in common with the religious images of paradise and hell, which contribute greatly to the promotion of understanding the importance of nature
I enjoyed reading this book primarily because of the vivid, descriptive writing style of the author. The verdure of storyline helps in development of reader’s curiosity as the eventful story proceeds. The characters are amusing and very synonymous to real life. With due course of time, the evolution in characters is the most interesting & exquisite aspect of the book, beautifully described by the author. The story ends just the way it should which; a positive happy ending is creating an excitingly effective impact over the reader.
In¨The Veldt¨ Ray Bradbury uses Personifications to bring his story to life. In ¨The Veldt¨ they rely on machines to do everything from doing dishes to tying shoe laces. They call it a happylife home but is that “happylife home” really a “happy life home” ? They soon have to rely on the machines to do everything for them, they cannot think on their own. When Ray Bradbury uses personifications it gives the story so much meaning and adds depth to the story.
It also provide the power which can influence someone action or decision and create a good image. In this article the author states that the leadership qualities can be built by telling the stories of celebrities and feel motivated regarding their work. by giving various examples. Because it provides practical ideas rather than theoretical and by understanding the storytelling leaders also supported the statement. It offer the initiative which has a great deal of things to do with stories and on the off chance that you concentrate on narrating – which goes once again the extent that fire, you will see things are moving
The Africans adored this cloth because it reminded them so much of home. Not home being a physical place but the ideas, memories, stories of where they were from. This cloth was then used to make items such as dresses, skirts, pants and tie heads. The significance of this cloth was very essential in the newly free
I really enjoyed the illustration of pirates called Endpaper Illustration Treasure Island. This is a bold yellow and white drawing of scalawags on the march. They look just like you 'd want a pirate to look, with hands full of old guns and long swords. Each man has a jutting chin and an air of menace. This art was originally used in a 1911 version of the book.
Aron Gwinner talked about the influence of technology in our lives and its impact on the workforce. Technology is changing drastically on a daily basis and it has blended in with our everyday lives. The tasks that are performed by human beings will be replaced by robots and automated systems, which will help employees cut down business costs. Machines cannot function alone and need help from humans to work. Since people depend on machines to an extent, there will be constant changes and growth in the IT field.
