In this poem she creates a brilliant, grotesque description of her “children” proving her mastery of words. It also must also be taken into account the era in which her poems were written. Ordinarily, in this period of history, it was not common to find an educated and well-versed woman such as Bradstreet. But why does she go to such great extent as to write a whole poem of the ugliness of her poetry?
I talked about the importance for a poem to be song-like, joyful, and informative so that it would capture its reader. Reciting the poem “Sonnet in Primary Colors” by Rita Dove I used a squawky sound like a bird.

Juno’s most popular symbol is the peacock, but she is also often represented by lilies, horses, deer, rabbits, and cuckoo birds. It is important to note that her daughter, Venus, is represented by these symbols as well (), most likely because both gods represent love between two people. The tapestry depicts Pyramus’ dead body lying on the ground and Thisbe in the process of stabbing herself with his sword. Although this scene is the apparent focus of the tapestry, many elements are illustrated surrounding the lovers.
Also, Faulkner uses the house to represent Emily metaphorically as decomposing and change-resistant. Faulkner also uses a rose to symbolize irony. Whereas roses represent love, Miss Emily never actually comprehend the actual meaning of love.

6700 Engwr 300 Essay 3 Dr. Jordan WC: Reframing Feminism for Black Women Beautiful gardens and handmade colorful quilts are not often the symbols of rebellion, however, in Alice Walker’s In Search of Our Mothers’ Gardens, these are the pictures of defiance. As she speaks of resilience, spirituality and the need to create, Walker explores what happened to our mothers’ minds when they were placed in systems of oppression unable to pursue higher learning and ‘refined’ art.

Do not look too close because even the most beautiful things in life can still hurt you. In American Beauty (1999) directed by Sam Mendes, has roses in almost every scene of the film. The roses and the rose petals symbolize two different things. The actual roses symbolize reality, on the outside it looks pretty and perfect, but the thorn will stab you if you try to pick it up.

Human Weariness in The Metamorphosis Typically associated with the transformation of an ugly caterpillar into a beautiful butterfly, the word “metamorphosis” tends to represent promise and change. However, as Gregor and Grete prove, The Metamorphosis provides an almost ironic meaning of the word. In conjunction with Gregor deteriorating physically after his initial transformation, the reader can see this transformation take place on an emotional and psychological level as well. Young Grete diminishes from loving sister to an unsympathetic young woman. Through a variety of character developments, Kafka 's The Metamorphosis shows the effects that change has on people, proving that human weariness is inevitable.
Harwood suggests that the role of motherhood forces one to give up their passion and careers. In the poem, 'Suburban Sonnet ', Harwood uses the pseudonym of Miriam Stone to explore the loss of identity that a mother can experience. The use of personal pronouns not only shows the loss of identity of this women, but also Harwood suggests that this is universal and is affecting many other women. The women 'who played for Rubinstein ' shows that this poem is more than a personal lament, but rather a comment on society that in order to become a mother, you must sacrifice your passion and career. The use of unpleasant imagery 'children chatter, then scream and fight ' highlights the burn and 'annoyance ' of the children.

Beautiful Darkness presents the emotional, dark story of a small girl who simply wants the best for those who around her. The art within the story is done in a bright watercolor, which is very contrasting to the true nature of the characters represented.

On page 61 of Beautiful Darkness, the two lower panels say a lot without many words.

Van Honthorst’s use of line within this work of art, makes the girl seem to fade into the dark background of the image. The texture in this painting are characteristic of seventeenth century northern European art. The texture within this work of art are realistic as though what is in the painting could be touched and feel like silk on the sleeves of the dress and the feathers look like they feel soft and fluffy. There is a great range of value within this piece, the background of the painting is very dark while the girl in the painting has very pale skin making her stand out from the dark background.
