Throughout “Tell Tale Heart” and “Ministers Black Veil”, both Poe and Hawthorne use symbolism to show they cannot hide from their sins.

Every night when Poe opens the old man's door, the light shines upon the vulture eye, which always seems to be open. The pale blue film, also demonstrates Poes inability to see clearly; in this case representing Poe trying not to acknowledge his own sins.

I also chose “Institutionalized” because it talks about being a minority and the struggle with that. I thought this would fit best with Othello because Othello himself is an outsider in Venice despite being respected in the play. I also chose “Miss Right” to represent Cassio because it’s a song that has a flirty tone to the song. I chose “Dark Day” for Iago because as the song says Iago is a dark character and brings destruction everywhere. For Othello, I chose “The Dragon Boy” because it’s a very tense and fast song and that kind of description reminds me of Othello.
Jenny Wolmark, a renowned lecturer at the University of Humberside, suggests “that contemporary science fiction texts increasingly include both utopian and dystopian elements” (91). Butler include both a utopian and dystopian society in her novel. Traveling back into time towards slavery is considered a dystopian society, especially for a black person, as slavery existed.

The time travel science fiction aspect of her story where Dana inexplicably “fell, slowly it seemed, into a deep starless darkness,” (43) and returned back to present day 1976 to her unsuspecting husband, really helps fit push Butlers comparison of the two time periods.
Fitzgerald uses color to add mod and symbolize different things throughout the novel. The novel uses many different colors to provide imagery for the readers to understand and to live as if they are truly in the novel.

The idea that the captain is unimportant can help the audience focus on the main character, Macbeth, and what is happening to him. However, Shakespeare’s inclusion of the captain of “The Tiger” helps characterize the witches in many ways. For example, part of their characterization occurs in Act One, when the three witches are talking about who they have recently tormented. The first witch says, “Here I have a pilot’s thumb, wracked as homeward he did come” (I.iii. 29-30).
There are few stories of Chopins which do not foreground language. Language makes the main body of a text. When used correctly it can be manipulated to present certain themes. Throughout the novel, ‘The Awakening’ by Kate Chopin, the language used in the text conveys the struggles of the main character to find her own identity. The way Chopin uses dialogue, a secret language and the narrator’s descriptions relate to the theme of identity, and often places it subtly at the centre of the reader’s consciousness.

You must be unique. " There he goes again , demanding being distinctive.
The song, Moody Blue, sung by Elvis Presley, depicts not only the literal color of blue seen in the night and day, the contrast emotionally and visually night and day have, but also the personal attachment seen with blue.
