Bradbury additionally indicates that fear can be seen in literature found throughout the book. At last, the author expresses the importance that fear can be seen when the thought of trying new things comes to mind. To begin, the motif of fear, or lack thereof, demonstrates an adverse impact on the disastrous dystopian society through the characters false sense of security. This idea can be detected throughout the beginning of the book at the time when most of the society, including Clarisse, thought everything was normal. “Did it always use to be that way?” (Bradbury 27).
Dickens revealed how the jails were where the, “Dire Diseases were bred [and how the they] came into the court with the prisoners,” eventually infecting the judge too. The absurdity that the judges believe they are safe from illness even though the prisoners are ill exposes the horrific state of law by exposing the irony in the court. The sickness shows irony for the judges own prisons are so disgustingly kept that the prisoners being brought in are the reason the judges themselves get sick and eventually perish. Furthermore, by personifying the illness as able to multiply on its own shows how horrific the state of the law is in England by giving a sense that the disease is physically growing and infecting the people of the courtroom. The horrible conditions of the court parallel the mob in France by exposing the state of
He spent countless days, even years, doing everything he could to hide the affair from the town and his congregation, in order to maintain his power and elite status within the community. By burying his sins deeper and deeper within his heart, Dimmesdale only made the guilt and regret that oppressed his mind stronger. Throughout the book, Hawthorne used the metaphor of a prison to represent the mental effects of Dimmesdale’s sins isolating him from the world and ultimately driving him insane. He chose the prison as a symbol because many criminals go insane within their jail cell due to the constant isolation that forces them to become trapped within their own mind and heart, where they are left to face the constant guilt and regret from their sins. Hawthorne brilliantly expounded upon this metaphor and symbol in relation to Dimmesdale’s life when he wrote, “...the wooden jail was already marked with weather-stains and other indications of age, which gave a yet darker aspect to its beetle-browed and gloomy front”(Hawthorne 45).
a mad world Madness, lobotomies, electro-shocks, misfits, normality; these words are the ones the people use when they talked about mental illness in the 19th Century. The 50’s and the 60’s were difficult times to live with a mental disorder, due to the fact that they were a stigma to the society and we all know how a stigma works: it consumes the people with fear. In the novel, One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, Ken Kesey puts in the spotlight the mental institutions and the “great solutions” that the government and psychiatrists developed. And it makes you wonder: Were they mentally ill or they made them believe that? Throughout Ken Kesey 's novel, “One Flew over the Cuckoo 's Nest,” the use of manipulation is a recurring, the character that uses it the most if the Nurse Ratchet.
In “The Path Through The Cemetery”, by Leo Rosen, figurative language helps show that Ivan is terrified and fearful of walking through the cemetery. In paragraph 10, the author uses a metaphor (“The cold was knife-sharp”) to describe how Ivan was terrified to be out in such cold; this also establishes a creepy mood by comparing the temperature to a sharp blade. The author also uses personification in paragraph 11 (“The wind was cruel”) to create imagery, and add details to show how fearful Ivan really is. Overall, Rosen’s use of metaphors (and other fig. lang.

Rennie together with Lora ends up arrested and confined to a subterranean cell in an old fort. In the prison, she is forced to witness various scenes of violence and brutality, culminating in the sadistic beating of Lora by their prison guards. Although Rennie looks down on Lora, soon she realizes that her behavior includes an element of generosity that Rennie may have something to learn from her. Bodily Harm ends with the anticipation of Rennie’s release through the interference of Canadian diplomatic authorities, although there is some ambiguity as to whether this will, in fact, take place or is only an imagination on her
Trapped. She was trapped in a cage of poverty; a poverty cage. It was almost like she was incarcerated, she sat alone in a small metal cell. Bored and underprivileged, she was desperate to find a hobby. This woman picked up sewing.
Tinfoil is also an unnatural substance, adding a more negative connotation to the mood. The jail cells are compared in a simile as “small animal cages”, which shows the harsh and cramped conditions that the prisoners have to live in while waiting for their death (page 1). Describing the
The “prisoners” in the experiment have to deal with poor sleeping conditions, physical and verbal abuse and ruthless guards, while in a real prison, prisoners experience similar but more extreme conditions. In the film 13th we see examples of how prison guards act in a real life situation. Brutality and humiliation are common place in this environment especially when race is involved. Both of these scenarios are vastly different, the 13th dealing with the prison system from a racial standpoint as well as a breakdown of how the prison system works once you are in it, while the Stanford experiment focuses on how people react under the extreme conditions of a prison environment. Both situations have to deal with the breakdown of men and how they are reprogrammed to conform to the new set of laws they must now live
The setting appears to symbolize the world outside Puritan Salem, and thus, outside Goodman Brown’s capacity. The forest’s ambience triggers his acknowledgment of the true portrayal of life, embodying his fears and suspicions of what truly stands out of the norm. The path Goodman Brown journeys upon not only represents an embodiment of his fears and angst, but also as a passage of unavoidable sin and duality that later becomes the epitome of his pride’s destruction and ultimate recognition of the nature of life. During his solitary expedition through the woods, Goodman Brown also faces numerous Puritan citizens whom he originally assumes to be solely pure, such as Goody Cloyse and Deacon Gookin. He later realizes that the journey he has commenced upon is a ceremonial form of a sinful congregation; by encountering his fellow citizens, he fully acknowledges the nature of life.
With such a fighting spirit, even the damage of industrialization was no match for it. After using calming and soothing words to describe the beauty of the Arctic Refuge, the author immediately pulls the readers to the harsh reality and blackness of a “web of roads and pipelines, drilling rigs and industrial facilities’. He describes the effects that it will have on the ecosystem and on America’s only Arctic Refuge. He emphasizes on his point by giving examples of Presidents who had recognized the value of the Arctic wilderness as well as methods and legislative decisions that they had made to uphold it. While talking about Conservation Acts, he manages to successfully convey to the audience the fact that it was their duty as American citizens to protect, respect and maintain the Alaskan
Solitary confinement is one of your worst nightmares. Yes, worse than having sex with a fat orangutan. That could be quite pleasurable in comparison. It’s basically a hellish prison where prisoners are isolated in tiny cells for 22-24 hours a day and treated like animals. Pardon, worse than animals.
By the narrator saying that the people in prison are “discovering” the hell out of themselves means that the people in prison are starting to go insane from the lack of freedom and constantly having their actions placed under scrutiny. Hence, this quote reflects back to the thesis because the thesis states how Peter Malae focused on explaining about the lack of freedom and surveillance in prison, the narrator describes his perusal of the people around him getting tortured and having to be conscious about their own actions in order to avoid
