Wigglesworth 's vivid representation children and infants characterizes the inflexible doctrine of Calvinism. Some believe, the purpose of the poem is to be a reminder to those who are not close to God anymore. There are many different opinions and takes on Wigglesworth 's poem. "Day of Doom" discusses a theme of perdition. Salvation is preservation from harm, while perdition means eternal punishment.
Chinua Achebe and Barbara Kingsolver create objects and characteristics in their novels that have great symbolic meaning. In Things Fall Apart, Okonkwo’s representation of a living flame and how yams are portrayed in Umuofia’s society are good examples of symbolism. In The Poisonwood Bible, an example can be found within the native language. The word bangala can mean dearly beloved if spoken slowly, but it also refers to the poisonwood plant if spoken quickly. Nathan was accidentally preaching about the plant, not about God’s love for us.
The most brilliant controversial works of art are often banned and kept hidden from the lives of young children, adolescences and sometimes adults. Mark Twain’s notorious ‘Huckleberry Finn’ uses literature as an incredible tool in addressing certain aspects of the society. This provokes a troubling yet satisfying tension between the reader and the narrator. Mark Twain represents the societal crisis, racism, in a factious novel by illustrating the issue of racism in a way that portrays reality as infinitely more horrifying. Before beginning to discuss the artistic and political importance of “Huckleberry Finn” I feel that one must look at the book itself and the time in which it was written.
Another example, not from Poe, is the novel “Speak”; which the conflict brings the reader to know how the character is lonely, depressed, and even confused. Both authors, of “Speak” (Laurie Halse Anderson) and Poe, use conflict to develop characters in many ways. Edgar Allan Poe is a very descriptive writer, which in his texts he develops characters through conflict all the time. In one of Poe’s poems, “Annabel Lee”, the conflict of the poem is how the narrator 's lost the love of his life and he needs to find a way to get her back. Per the conflict, the author is letting the reader
Nevertheless, the last two lines of the poem are the most blatant indicators of the speaker’s regret. Everything else in the poem has only been hinting at the speaker’s realization of his childish ignorance, but he explicitly states that he didn’t understand the more understated ways of expressing love in the last two lines. Repetition serves as a powerful tool for amplifying the pain and regret felt by the speaker, as he openly criticizes his past self for thinking he had his father figured out without searching deeper. The son knows he can’t go back in time and teach himself the “austere,” or harsh, and “lonely offices,” meaning roles, of love. A parent’s love is mostly subtle, and his lack of understanding that as a child is something he can never take back.
It was not external but lay deep within himself. It was fear of himself, lest he should be found to resemble his father. (Achebe, 2010, p.12). In this statement, the writer explains his fear or fear of himself, because Oknokwo is basically afraid of himself and his capable. Oknokwo experienced his father’s failure and brought shame to his family whereby looking to his father’s fail it cause Oknokwo to fear

Mr. Ballen explains that it is due to a difficult life at home ,and an abusive father that led Ammad to where he is now. Ballen says “ ‘Yet with his father he had a lot of difficulty. In fact, he had one incident where his father hit him, and he felt that because his father hit him, he was going to hell. This drove him into the behavior and this drove him towards - ultimately towards religion, because he wanted to redeem himself, and in essence he wanted to find his father 's love.’ “(Ballen). Davies asks why this would affect Ammad in such a way and then explains that is because of their culture.
At this part of the story Dave was trying to come tell him that his father had passed away in combat, but he was too afraid to hear him say the words that he didn 't let him and just beat Dave up. While reading the suspense of how badly the boys wanted to beat Dave up was a release of anger and fear, which is terrifying in the position of
As evidence, in one of his poem he uses the word “flames” to indicate the harshness of life to the new world.
