Where Eden was once a place of blissful happiness and innocence, and with just one quick change the idyllic atmosphere loses its golden heavenly traits. The change in the seasons can transition so quickly and your favourite season may only seem to last just an hour, this is exactly what Robert Frost was trying to get the audience to connect with. Robert implies that change can happen so suddenly, just as easy as “...dawn goes down to day”. Whereby all of the mornings beauty like when the sun just starts to come up or the birds start chirping is lost to the harshness of the mid day. The way in which Robert uses the Garden of Eden and the swift changes from dawn to day as symbols relates directly to his point that change is often quick, out of nowhere and that it might not be as beautiful
The Goldfinch, serving as a final link between Theo and his mother, and representative of his last moments with her, still remains so important to Theo because of the connection to his mother. While he disdains the life and its fleetingness, it is from the life of his mother that he gains such a high appreciation for art. Within Sarah Nicole Prickett’s “Style is Fate,” a literary criticism of The Goldfinch for The New Inquiry, Prickett asserts, “The Goldfinch is a brace against the void.” It is interesting to consider how the Tartt herself employs one of the main themes of the novel in the creation of her work. Within The Goldfinch, art is a brace against the abyss, and yet The Goldfinch, a piece of artwork itself, also serves this purpose, as a brace against the
Both of these stories teach you to believe in yourself and stay hopeful. In “If Only We Had Taller Been,” Ray Bradbury teaches the reader to stay hopeful, even when things look unfavorable.

This poem has taught the reader to always believe in themselves. The author says, “Short man, Large dream.” (Bradbury 4) Ray Bradbury is saying that no matter how insignificant you feel, you have to keep believing in yourself.
According to one scholar Song of Songs 8:6, “some read this as a wish for nearness: If only I were her little seal-ring / the keeper of her finger! / I would see her love each and every day..., A second alternative is to understand the seal as one that marks ownership, such as the engraved seals made of semi-precious stone used to stamp on the wet clay of a jar” (Dharamraj 4). All indications point to Mrs. Trent was Faiths mother, yet Faith did not acknowledge or ever mention her again. Eisner’s subtle message that even though a we may not know God, He always knew
Every day, we hear the term ‘love’ in several different situations. So, what is love? According to Shakespeare, in sonnet 116 - The first quatrain describes love as an unchangeable force in the lines “Love is not love / Which alters when it alteration finds, / Or bends with the remover to remove: / O no! it is an ever-fixed mark.” Shakespeare enforces the fact that true love always perseveres, no matter what it’s up against by using the metaphor, “That looks on tempests and is never shaken” in the second quatrain. In the third quatrain, he asserts that love doesn’t care for outer beauty that fades with time because true love goes beyond such boundaries.
With anything, whether a possession, an achievement, or even a life, it does not last forever. This is best described in the poem when the reader comes across the lines “Her early leaf’s a flower, but only so an hour.” Robert frost uses elements of nature as a metaphor in “Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening”. During the poem, a person crosses through woods to admire them before he continues his trip. His horse thinks he is here by mistake because there is no farmhouse nearby. Unfortunately, the man does not stay any longer because he has promises to keep.

Theme Essay Courage is never giving up, especially before you try. In the novel To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee the author shows courage in numerous ways.

This connects to the element of everlasting when she says, “it will never pay off in the long run”. Long run is a synonym of everlasting, so this connects to everlasting. Another example of everlasting in her article, is when she says, "morality is fundamentally good and those who follow it, even when it costs them, are the genuine heroes in a real classic" (Classical Literature Classic). In a classic, there are just some things that you do and some you just do not do. In To Kill a Mockingbird, an example of this is when Atticus says, "Shoot all the bluejays you want, if you can hit 'em, but remember it's a sin to kill a mockingbird" (Lee 119).
