A very precise word choice keeps the reader’s imagination from being too broad while reading. Anne Bradstreet uses good word choice in “My Dear and Loving Husband” with the “Thy love is such I can no way repay.” (line 15, page 116). Her words mean that she can never thank her husband because he has loved he so much. Jonathan Edwards also uses a precise word choice in “Sinners in the Hands of Angry God”. “Who it may be are at ease, than with many of those who are now in the flames of hell” (Edwards, page 124, line 9).
Alfred Noyes apprises his audience about a personable maiden held captive by King George’s men and the significant other in her life in his highly acclaimed narrative poem titled “The Highwayman”. To prevent her lover from returning back to where she was being used as enticement, the young woman shoots herself in the attempt to admonish her love, the Highwayman. The speaker of “Annabel Lee” by Edgar Allan Poe, claims that the love and the admirable aspects of his beloved had encouraged many coveting angels to take her life. The speaker’s everlasting love breaks the boundary between heaven and earth, however, avowing continuous affection. Both authors imply the general topic of love, however they each make their own variations to compose juxtaposing
DP1: Within this Narrative, Antigone frequently uses the emotional values of others to convince them of what she believes to be right.The first illustration of this phenomenon is when Antigone compares her willingness to face death as the result of giving her brother an honorable burial, to her sister Ismene 's unwillingness in doing the same.The main character feels as though it is her personal and moral obligation to retrieve the afterlife that’s been taken from her brother.Therefore, she does not agree in abiding by Creon 's man-made legislation and makes it her mission to concede to the laws of the gods. Asking for her sister 's help, she hopes to obtain reliability, only to find her too intimidated by Creon, Their uncle, and king. Accordingly, she says to Ismene “You may do as you like since apparently the laws of the gods mean nothing to you” (Page 192 Sophocles Antigone).This sentence uses two rhetorical appeals. First, Antigone 's most manipulated appeal, pathos is demonstrated specifically when she says “ you may do as you like..” (Page 192 Sophocles Antigone).These words make it seem like Ismene is selfish in preserving herself, unlike Antigone 's decision to do the opposite. Antigone uses comparison to herself to make Ismene appear weak and self-serving in return.
When Granny realized that she was going to die, it came as a total surprise to her, when she said " So Dear Lord this is my death bed and I wasn't even thinking about it.”(219) people might be wondering what this has to do with her successful life. Well, this shows success because Granny was so happy with her life that she didn't want to die, especially when saying "There is nothing more cruel than this, I'll never forget it.” (220) If Granny hadn't led a successful life she would be miserable instead of seeking to live on. She would have just wanted to die and wouldn't have cared what happened. She just never wanna stop her adventure of success, she is doing well and she could be able carry on her achievement. The more time she lives will help her gain more price in life.
Barbara claims to love her brother, but tells the detective how fearful of him she is. In his eyes, Perry sees this as betrayal and may be a large part of the reason he detest her. Capote uses this lyric because it foreshadows the death of Perry. Otto and Perry conclude the song by asking “won’t you give me flowers while I’m living” (Capote 117). This lyric is essential because the “lilies” and the “flowers” symbolize mercy.
Porter explores how Granny Weatherall dies, how she sees herself as she dies, and how she interprets her life from her realization of death's imminence” (McClain).The characterization in Porters story, suggests that Granny Weathereall’s positive outlook was more easily influenced than that of Phoenix. Granny Weatherall thrives of misinterpretation and unhappiness, intensifying a sense of self-pity and disbelief for God as a result of being ditched on her wedding day. Her Self-pity is quite obvious when Granny believes to hear Cornelia’s and the doctor speaking and beliefs that they are talking poorly of her. Weatherall’s inability to let go of the past has caused her life to go from a once happy past to a dark and uncertain present. Even on her deathbed she cannot forgive George and believes God has also abandoned
Between King Lear and Cordelia is the embodiment of authentic self-sacrificing love. Near the end of the tragedy, Lear learns a cruel lesson in humanity, and recognizes his error which is vital to his reconciliation with Cordelia. He finally realized Cordelia’s sincerity, and the depth of her love that was far more authentic compared to her sisters. Likewise, on the last episode, Fiona is seen bald and weary from cancer. Fiona admitted to her daughter when a woman becomes a mother, she cannot help, but see life in the little baby’s face.
Finally, in the third poem, her grandson dies. She throws questions more toward God on why he would remove her loved one from this earth so soon. Bradstreet is merely in depression, yet she finds courage at the end and believes that something good will be coming their way after the loss. In poems one and two about grandchildren, Elizabeth and Anne, Bradstreet shows a difference in her feelings. In
From the text, one can understand that morality and religion were closely linked; therefore, I will treat the moral and religious aspect of suicide as one. In Hamlet´s days, suicide was considered a sin by the church, and people who died due to this would not receive a proper Christian burial. In Hamlet, Ophelia is only buried at a graveyard due to her status and her family´s close ties with the royal family. The priest still refused to treat her death as anything but a suicide, and this only emphasises the role Christianity played in society. Faith and righteousness were two things one could not live without, and the religious norms were to be followed.
Subsequently, through the knight’s patience in waiting for the woman he favours, Keats highlights the strong affection she has for the woman. Unlike the romantic love presented in “La Belle Dame sans Merci”, one could argue that Achebe portrays love in its purist sense through the relationship between a mother and a child in a refugee camp. At the beginning of the poem, the mother is described as “No Madonna and Child could touch / Her tenderness for a son” The noun phrase, “Madonna and Child” is an allusion to Virgin Mary and Jesus. Likened to Virgin Mary and Jesus, the pure and ultimate love a mother has for a child is illustrated. Achebe uses plosive
