In this essay I will touch on what intrigues me about Alison Bechdel’s creative and powerful art in Fun Home.

These images portray the harrowing feeling of desolation she is experiencing. The patriarchal Victorian society often compared images of Birds to women. They saw a bird as caged, fragile, and beautiful, who like a woman needed to protect her nest, but the bird must be nurtured, because on her own she was incapable, and vulnerable. (The British Library, 2014). Bronte used bird imagery to imitate human behaviour and feelings, allowing a connection between emotions and nature; she also used Birds to describe Jane’s progression over time.
Furthermore, I believe the poems: 'Poem at thirty-nine', 'Remember', 'Ode of Remembrance', and 'For My Mother in Her Mid-90's', do exceptionally well to express this theme of remembrance. 'Piano', being a poem which features remembrance through the use of language that the poet, D.H. Lawrence uses along with the subject the poem is written about, his childhood memories. We see a change in tense in each stanza as he is reflecting on his thoughts and memories. With each changing stanza, the fluctuating tense creates the effect of recollection going back and forth in his writing.
Setting is a literary device used by writers to paint the scene of their writing. Early in education students are taught that setting is the time and place of a piece of literature. But, later it is learned that there are five functions of setting, each contributing something to the piece of literature to form the images and emotions perceived by the audience. The functions of setting are used by an author to paint an image in the reader’s mind. In the 1960 movie adaptation of Edgar Allan Poe’s Classic Gothic Tale, The Fall of the House of Usher the functions of setting truly enhanced the readers emotions and understanding.

In his timeless poem, “The World Is Too Much With Us”, William Wordsworth bemoans the state of the world and how people so ignore creation. Wordsworth was an English poet in the in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries. His childhood was a traumatic time as he moved from one place to another after the tragic death of his mother.

The speaker uses the word brilliance instead of a window. Additionally, he compares the bird falling to that of a glove. The use of figurative language allows for the meaning to come across in a creative way. By setting the same scene for both instances, in the beginning and with the struggling bird, the speaker is relating the two together. The daughter, much like the wild bird, is struggling with her heavy cargo of who she is.

When reading the poem, “The Gift,” by Li-Young Lee, it can be interpreted many different ways. Upon initial reading, I took the poem very literal, but then I thought deeper and dug beneath the surface to realize the true meaning as to what Li-Young Lee was trying to say. As the author is removing a splinter from his wife 's hand, he has a flashback from the time when he was seven and his father removes a metal splinter from his palm. Although he was probably terrified at first, his father distracted him by reciting a tale.
