Have you ever heard of the phrase “Art is not what you see, but what you make others see”? To me this means that it’s not what you see in it, but what you can lead others to believe. During the novel Don Quixote he reads many, many books and convinces himself that he, although being nothing but a poor man, is in fact a knight as well. Being so strong willed about his knightly abilities he does not heed the warnings of his squire and almost dies. In Victor Vasnetsov’s piece shows a knight who has come to a crossroad, continue on his path as someone he is not and face the same consequences, or to accept himself as whom he is.

He has no human comfort, and hopes that he is able to see Lenore once more. Many people throughout the ages sought comfort from the bible. The characters i looking for comfort, and asks “Is there—is there balm in Gilead?—tell me—tell me, I implore!”(Poe 94). He is begging for the Raven to respond to him, but questioning if there really is a balm. Besides biblical references, the narrator is tormented by the Roman god of the underworld.
Due to this, Grendel lives a life of seclusion and rejection. He takes out his loneliness on the prosperous hall of the Danes. The news of Grendel terrorizing the kingdom became a tale overseas, which is how Beowulf hears of Grendel and his acts.

At the end of “The Raven” the protagonist accepts his love 's death as well with the help of the raven when he tells him that he will never be together with his love again. Poe did not write these two stories to create creepy gothic stories, he wrote these two stories because it had a lot of meaning to him. He wrote the stories and imagined himself as the narrator in both stories because he too lost someone very important to

Algernon Charles Swinburne’s poem, “A Ballad of Dreamland” presents the world of dreams as an escape from the sadness of his real life. The poem begins with the speaker describing the lengths to which he would go to hide his heart from the world. The speaker goes on to show his appreciation for dreams as they allow him to avoid the pain of life and love, at least temporarily. The speaker acknowledges, at the end of every stanza, that something always manages to force him out of his dreams without his consent. Swinburne uses imagery to paint the world of dreams as safe and beautiful.
Next, I will explore the narrator’s misconceptions on love and the Middle East, and his wishes to desert his mundane home in “Araby.” Finally, I will explain the protagonist’s inability to leave Dublin despite her domestic and occupational misery in “Eveline.” Dubliner’s “The Sisters” features an unnamed boy who narrates the aftermath of a priest’s death, and he vaguely recalls their inappropriate relationship with implications of pedophilia. The short story beings with the boy as he comprehends that Father Flynn has died, though the child’s tone appears unattached and distant. This offers reason for suspicion to the reader as a child would normally behave differently at the news of a dead friend. They should express grief, confusion, or even disappointment at least. Instead, the narrator maintains his composure and reacts minimally when Mr. Cotter brings up the clergyman’s passing.
The cliche describes a man, George, who attempts to bring reality to his dreams, but constantly debates whether or not he should leave his only source of companionship for his ambitions. Since the first introduction, George is witnessed to feel remorseful after howling at Lennie several times,clearly indicating that he cares about him. Secondly, George recognizes the consequences of traveling the land alone and indirectly thanks Lennie for their friendship. At last, even when George faced the ultimate sight of his friend, he hesitantly carried out the deed as a favor to end Lennie’s suffering. In the end, every novel, every work of literature has a basic cliche at the roots.
Sadly, more often than not, our irresponsibility in actions cost us our lives. Additionally, by saying thought is life; the poet depicts a clear difference between man and a fly. When the thoughts in a man cease, he is no more, while for the fly there’s no thought at all. He explores the notion of conscious thoughts verses lack of
