Leuce could help smile through her sadness, at the innocence and inventiveness of the child, she couldn't remember much of her own child hood, but she was sure to never have been as imaginative as the young Goddess. 'Yes I can make a beard for your doll. It will look even more like you,' she affirmed getting busy on the unnamed doll. 'Please Zeus, please give them life,' she added presenting the doll to the air. Leuce froze in terror and dread at the mere mention of the child's father.
But it is, and honestly it's one of the worst things I would ever wish upon someone. You constantly feel alone, but you don't have to be. These are the things I would tell my daughter should she ever get alopecia. I love you You are beautiful The stares from strangers passing by will become less uncomfortable The little girl or boy who yells, "Mommy, why doesn't that girl have hair?" doesn't know any better The
O’Connor’s depiction of the wooden leg in the story is a mild comparison to the amputation of her very soul threatened by imminent death relating to Lupus. To O’Connor her life became ugly and she voiced this matter of fact to Langkjaer in her comments about a self portrait that she had painted that was not flattering or attractive. Just as Hulga was highly educated, Flannery did know that she had high intelligence though she couldn’t spell and wasn’t good at Math. When her once last chance at love before her death was gone, it sparked emotions that had to quickly be dealt with and so O'Connor penned her masterpiece about her pain, her broken heart, her broken spirit and broken soul. Through this experience of loss of love and her imminent decline fo her life to Lupus, the author wrote a story to cleanse her healthy mind of pain and sorrow.
While she wept, her mother filled music tunes into her crying and taught her a unique method of breathing in which every breath, looks a bit of music.She also taught her that to feel the love from the soul is only a law of love and whatever the life is ,to live life by the beautiful way is a love. No cradled of flowers and no pat of happiness. After the birth,She played with sea,eat a hunger and drink, a music.Sorrows were her companions . She's was made of different soil because she never wept, and passed on any signs of sorrow . Moreover, She was very genial and fled all of her regrets with a smile.
“Ignorance is learned; innocence is forgotten” by José Bergamín, As the story continue Myop resemble the theme of innocence again “stepping smack into his eyes” Myop encounters death, but she was unafraid as she “frees herself”(line line 25) Myop a ten year old girl was filled with innocence, curiosity. “Myop gaze around with interest”(line 31) she had no idea about what had happen but she was curious to know more about the scenery. As Myop picks her wild pink rose which is a symbol of beauty, she spots the noose and has her epiphany, she saw how the person lying in front of her had his death. Myop lost her innocence on the spot, “she places her bundles of flowers in front of the dead body as if she was at a funeral”. Myop placing her flowers to the ground meaning that she was giving her childhood and entered to a world of hate and sins.
The second metaphor lies in stanza seven, line 39, when the woman speaks to her child, saying, “Thy mother bears thee far, young Fawn!” (cite). The woman compares her child to a helpless animal that requires aid (cite). Hemans depicts the woman in this metaphor as caring for a young animal, saving it from a sad life. This is a prideful translation of what most likely is extreme pain. The woman is not saving her child, but is killing them both in utter grief.
3.If a mother loses hope in her child, then nobody else will show hope. A mother is the last person that would lose hope on her child so the quote “she had long ceased to care” the theme loss of innocence is showing here as a mother losing hope in her child would be the worst thing to happen in a human’s life. 4.As well as ‘Mother in a Refugee Camp’ talking about a child’s death and the themes of growing up & loss of innocence, the poem ‘Prayer Before Birth’ takes a similar approach. In the first stanza of prayer before birth the reader can quickly notice the child like vocabulary stepping forward and written by MacNeice. This expresses the theme of loss of innocence as already knowing this is going to be a sad poem, it’s taken from a
Tess- a victim of church/religion Tess is a victim of religion as according to society norms. Probably the most obvious and the most discussed mistakes Tess makes in her life, are her “sins against society”. The first is quite obvious, she gives birth to an illegitimate child and is resolved to keep living her life and raise her child as well as she can in spite of the society’s contempt: “The baby’s offence against society in coming into the world was forgotten by the girl-mother; her soul’s desire was to continue that offence by preserving the life of the child”. (112) The second one is not so apparent and in the eyes of the author just formal or perhaps unnatural – her love for Angel Clare and her eventual marriage to him: The full recognition of the futility of their infatuation, from a social point of view; its purposeless beginning; its self-bounded outlook; its lack of everything to justify its existence in the eye of civilization (while lacking nothing in the eye of Nature). (TOD
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? Considering the language used to describe her poetry; “ill-formed” “irksome” she must have written this poem in a moment of sadness and even anger.
She understands birthing a child out of marriage is a sin and she accepts the Scarlet Letter as punishment. However, she does not let consequences halt her from being the beauty she has always been. When Hester is publicly seen for the first time with her newborn daughter, Pearl after being released from prison, towns people stated that it was as if she had no other purpose than to reveal the punishment she was given. “Those who had before known her, and had expected to be held her dimmed and obscured by a disastrous cloud, were astonished, and even startled, to perceive how her beauty shone out” (51) Before the Scarlet Letter was given to Hester she was like any other Salem woman in society. However, once the Scarlet Letter was imbedded onto her clothes everything changed.
