Unjustified Insanity After the London blitz, during the conclusion of World War 2, many people including families lived in horrible conditions. Many high-class families were poor due to so many bombs hitting their homes and businesses. In “The Destructors” by Graham Greene, Trevor's actions were unjustified because he had no reason to target a specific person. He just wanted to destroy everything in the house to make someone feel the same as he does. Trevor’s actions to destroy Old Misery’s home were not logical, due to Old Misery compassion to the gang.
The author while embarking her self-education has started creative work and began to write stories. The novel reveals about a status of women during the time of nineteenth to the twentieth century in which the author explains the dissatisfaction she felt at that point through writing her novel (Marie, 2013). “Tears, Idle Tears” written in 1847 in which author tells in the form of poetry how one has to struggle with the poverty and also discuss the roles of men and women in society. Also, the social issues of that time have raised in the poetry in which education of women and creating of female colleges were part of a contemporary controversy. The poem describes in an undefinable way that examines life through a perspective of life ends with the memories associated with it (Learning, 2009).
Judge Danforth’s unwavering egotism culminates in the unfortunate deaths of Salem townsfolk. Arthur Miller’s classic play The Crucible demonstrates how the actions of one person can affect many others. Judge Danforth cares more about his own reputation than what is right. Often times people try to think of what is right instead of saving their own face, Judge Danforth is an exception to this stereotype. The Salem Witch Trials were a horrible time where many people lost their lives due to an unjust court system.
An Analysis of “Death and the Turtle” In “Death and the Turtle” May Sarton examines many aspects of death. At first glance her three stanza and twenty four line poem seems to remain constant by maintaining a stringent rhyme scheme and steady iambic pentameter. However, upon further examination there are three major shifts that contribute significantly to the meaning of the poem. As the poem progresses there are shifts in the scale, emotion, and inevitability of death. All of these shifts contribute to the poem’s deeper meaning that although death is unavoidable people still have the ability to resist it.
She teaches the children that the town does not “believe in persecuting anybody” (Lee 329) because of the U.S. democratic government. Gates then goes on to share how “there are no better people in the world than Jews” (Lee 329), and it is beyond her comprehension to know why Hitler could commit acts against them. The irony lies in her blindness to the similar oppression happening in her home town. The children are taught that Hitler is a monster for his anti semitic actions in Germany; meanwhile, African Americans are forced to face daily suppression in Maycomb County. Both groups have stereotypes that cause others to perceive them as
This reiterates the idea that individuals can go their whole life and then, die alone. It is also shown that that go to the same church by this line: “Father McKenzie, wiping the dirt from his hands as he walks from the grave.” Burying Eleanor, Father McKenzie was at the funeral and that is how they end up being together, he was the only one to attend her funeral, and that was because he was doing his job. Consequently, these outcomes are the negatives of lonely, maudlin ,and hopeless. In the end, the Beatles’ song “Eleanor Rigby” uses two individuals stories to make a statement of humans and loneliness, and how no matter what a person will feel alone from time to time. Consequently, “No one is saved”, neither Eleanor Rigby or Father McKenzie, from the human emotion of loneliness.
The repetition is evident as he writes “I have a rendezvous with death” (Seeger) several times in the poem. The personification of death as the subject of the story is a unique aspect of the story. Seeger also personifies spring in an ironic manner. The irony is evident when Seeger writes, “When Spring comes back with rustling shade… I have a rendezvous with death.” (Seeger). This allows for an interesting contrast between the life and beauty of spring and the cold and grim nature of death.
Eliot’s poem, titled “The Burial of the Dead,” he uses a lack of water to show the absence of fertility in the minds of modern Europe. Eliot very closely relates his ideas to those in Heart of Darkness. In the poem, the narrator says, “Your arms full; and your hair wet, I could not / Speak, and my eyes failed, I was neither / Living nor dead, and I knew nothing” (Eliot 38-40). Water has become quite scarce, but when water becomes available, people remain empty of knowledge. There is water right in front of the narrator’s face, but because the narrator does not take the chance to get to know it, this person remains ignorant.
For instance, there are multiple lines that begin with My as the widow describes her sorrow throughout the poem. As Auden wrote, “My noon, my midnight, my talk, my song’…” Despite the person who reads the poem, it causes one feel unhappy and to start see the sorrow the widow is facing thru as she unfolds her unhappy ending. Towards the end of the poem, is where one truly feels the greatest emotional intensity as she expresses her bliss is no longer alive, so her joy transformed into miserable. “He was my North, my South, my East, my West, My working week and my Sunday rest. My noon, my midnight, my talk, my song; I thought that love would last forever, I was wrong.” (W. H.
Throughout the poem, death is personified through the use of capitalization as seen in the quotation “He Kindly Stopped for Me”, implying that the narrator has accepted the idea of death; the adverb describing death as “kindly” indicates how caring and courteous he is. Death leads the narrator into an afterlife through a gradual progression of events rather than an abrupt end, as seen in Heaney’s ‘Mid Term Break’. The end of the poem sees the narrator obtaining immortality and living in “Eternity”. Dickinson hints at the idea of immortality at the beginning of the poem where she describes that there are three people present in the carriage: the narrator, death and immortality: “The carriage held but just Ourselves - And Immortality”. The inclusion of time and the juxtaposition of “Centuries” and how it feels “Shorter than the Day” develops the idea of “Eternity” and immortality as time has lost
