He points out that many people may still be afraid of the dark (solitude) or paranoid when within it even though “the witches are all hung, and Christianity and candles have been introduced.”. By using those words, he’s painting a realistic picture of solitude while simultaneously trying
In William Golding’s Lord of the Flies the fire is a symbol of the theme The downfall of society without consequences. When there is no home there is only fire to keep warm and when that is stolen it shows a degrading society. Ralph relies on the fire for warmth, signals, and cooking but when it gets taking away a society starts to fall apart. As referred in this quote ‘“ They’ve got our fire.” Rage shrilled his voice. “They stole it!”’ (Golding 195).
Being in that situation leads you to many paths like some people can cry and cry for days, others will be sad and be by themselves until they don't feel down anymore, some other people would like better be surrounded by their loved ones and friends, others will lost their consciousness just like the narrator, and even some other people would just go to the extreme by killing themselves. Not all human beings are the same, all will react differently to different situations that we pass, and that's normal we are different and that's what makes us ourselves. I think this poem this poem is real by the fact of this poor man passing a horrible situation. This man lost the love of his life and now is December the month of love, family and happiness but he does not know
The mask is like putting a pretty painting over a hole in the wall. The wall would now look appealing on the outside but, broken behind it. Montag didn’t want that pretty painting anymore to hide his brokenness, but learn to express them and understand his emotions. These “happy masks” relate to my theme because in a perfect world you are not acting happy but living happy. The crying women represents Mrs.Bowles and her new found emotion of sadness.
. ], but in this chamber only, the color of the windows failed to correspond with the decorations. The panes here were scarlet – a deep blood color” (Poe 286). In constructing this room, Poe associates the colors black and red with time and death. The Scarlet, blood color, is used by Poe to emphasize the power death holds, while the gloomy black drapes and carpet create the ominous sense of mourning and grief that death brings.
The color pallet consists of mostly dark values of red and neutral colors with one pop of bright red, two areas of low saturated yellows, and two areas with low saturated blues. Merisi brilliantly uses sight lines and lighting to create movement and emphasis
The 1808 painting The Valpincon Bather by Ingres, is said to be “controversial”(oil painting techniques). At first glance, one may only see the back of a nude woman. If one looked closer there is a lot of different types of elements of composition. From the curtains, to the tassels it all plays a role. In the painting there is a great detail that is shown.
The color violet hints at injury and the bruises of an older body that is nearing a death clocked in shadow. Then lastly is the black room. However, Poe does not settle for a simple black colored room. He creates a sense of alarm and panic by coloring the window panes a deep blood red. Black and red are both colors often paired together and symbolize an inevitable end in death.
Edgar Allen Poe’s “The Raven” use of negative tone words and word choice effect the overall mood of the poem by making the poems very dark and gloomy mood and then in later on in the story the tone words create a very angry but sorry mood. The words used in the stanzas lead you into a creepy and chilling mood that makes the story very suspicious and alarming because it makes people feel very overwhelmed with terror and fear. The words midnight, darkness, and dreary set the tone for a dark and gloomy time because dreary means gloomy or dull and midnight and darkness, well mean dark. In stanza one it states “Once upon a midnight dreary…...” this is part of what starts the story off with a dark and gloomy mood. Furthermore, in lines 81,85,
The statement “it was getting dark on the inside too” is really left to the reader’s interpretation. In a few words Raymond Carver once again paints a powerful scene as the woman and man start to fight over the baby. One can feel the tension build as the baby is quiet in the beginning and by stanza number 26 the baby is “red- faced and screaming.” The reader immediately feels for the innocent child caught in the conflict spiraling out of control. The couple starts out fairly civil. The dialog between the man and woman is short and to the point.
