In his soliloquy, Romeo states that Juliet is “ a snowy dove trooping with crows”( 1.5.46). Doves are a symbol of light,peace, and beauty while crows symbolize death and darkness. Shakespeare compares Juliet’s beauty to a dove and crows to show that her beauty will overpower everyone else’s. However, Juliet’s beauty was not enough to overcome the darkness that will leave her powerless in the end. Romeo also describes Juliet as a “rich jewel in an Ethiop’s ear”(1.5.44).
The bird symbolizes the manifestation of Yolanda’s words: “Delight and surprise are written all over its wing grin. It plummets down towards the sunning man on the lawn.

• Metaphor is well used in the story “The Ones Who Walk Away from Omelas” written by Ursula K. Le Guin. Metaphor is a comparison stated in such a way as to imply that one object is another one. Guin uses a lot of metaphors in the beginning of the story to help build the setting of Omelas. “Children dodged in and out, their high calls rising like the swallows’ crossing flights over the music and the singing.” (Lines 7-8, Guin).

First, the mood was changed through colors from dark and gloomy to bright and light. “If I had sense enough,” replied Beast “I would make a fine compliment to thank you, but I am so dull, that I can only say, I am treaty obliged to you.”
There Will Come Soft Rains by Sara Teasdale shows nature’s apathetic viewpoint on the actions carried out by humanity. The poem opens with a beautiful description of nature, with “ Swallows circling with their shimmering sound” (Teasdale 2) accompanied with “Wild plum trees in tremulous white” (Teasdale 4). Juxtaposing the beauty of nature, Teasdale continues to describe in the second half of the poem, how a war that completely obliterated the human race had just occurred; thus, revealing a human on human conflict. The poem ends with nature being either oblivious, unaffected, or indifferent to mankind’s absence.
This is the theme because in each of the stories, both main characters do the smallest of things which lead something bad happen to both of them.

In Being Prey Plumwood decided to go out on the water even though it was a bad day even though she had a feeling that something was watching her. On page 101 it talks about Plumwood going out on the canoe knowing she had a weird feeling.
Now, the parrot withdrawals much of Edna throughout the novel since her feelings are fatigue in every aspect with Mr. Pontellier. The parrot voices Edna’s unspoken remarks which impelled her to a stage of an overwhelming sense on numbness. The parrot being caged was identical to Edna’s abandonment of freedom; lack of freedom and happiness. In comparison to the parrot being caged, the mockingbird was ideally symbolizing much more than imprisonment.
First, Edna is initially symbolized by the caged green-and-yellow parrot because like the bird she is confined. At the start of the book, the parrot shrieks and swears at Mr.Pontellier. Chopin writes, “A GREEN AND yellow parrot, which hung in a cage outside the door, kept repeating over and over: ‘Allez vous-en! Allez vous-en!
Odysseus went through many obstacles throughout his journey. For example, the Lotus eaters who gave Odysseus and his crew the intoxicating fruit of the lotus. Polyphemus the one-eyed cyclops that Odysseus stabbed in the eye and the Cyclops asked the gods to punish him. As Odysseus went through his journey, Poseidon made it very eventful because of what he did to his son Polyphemus. The most important obstacle that affected his journey back home to Ithaca was seduction.
They were miracles! I ran to them and swatted and tried to catch one, at least one in the brisk air of autumn. But, when I reached out for one they all slipped away from our universe into an infinite abyss of a forever black night and tiny specks of
