The tension presented in the first stanza is due to childbirth, and the pain and difficulty involved with that. The first line, “ I can remember you, child” , is an automatic attention - drawer, it also causes tension as it shows how fearless the poet is due to the boldness of the statement. The enjambement used within the first stanza allows the tension to build, as it acts like a continuous build- up to something significant (in this case - childbirth). This tension is then continued with the alliteration of “first Fierce confrontation”. The emphasis supplied by the literary device means that this quote will stay in our minds, whilst allowing us to easily flow through the stanza.
Evolution of Reverend Dimmesdale One quote by Dave Grohl, “Guilt is cancer. Guilt will confine you, torture you, and destroy you as an artist. It's a black wall. It's a thief,” The feeling of guilt is one that may leave others in sorrow and despair. Without confessing what one has done will eventually lead to a life of fear, nervousness, and insecurity.
A Tale of Two Tragedies A tragic hero is a character with a great flaw; this flaw, once realized, will be the downfall of the character and the eventual destruction of themselves. Poisonwood Bible, by Barbra Kingslover and Frankenstein, by Mary Shelley both have perfect examples of tragic heroes. Nathan and the monster both are considered tragic figures in these novels. Each of them has given up their life to continue with one reason to live. The monster has realized that he cannot be accepted into the world because of his looks and Nathan believes that God despises him for being a coward.
However “Prayer at Sunrise” uses more high language than “The Jewish Year which uses much more low language. Now let us begin with the tone differences of these two poems.

She says “oh then, when God has kept his word, In peace we end the year.
Hazlitt argues that specific belief systems are justifiers to in act the inherent hatred in humanity. The worst offender of these belief systems, according to Hazlitt, is religion which is a “pretext… set up for men to wrangle, to quarrel, to tear one another to pieces”. Religion as a tool to induce human suffering, promotes Hazlitt’s argument that humanity hates itself because it means that all the differing religions are justifiers to fight . The willingness to cause human suffering, imbedded in amount of religions in existence, implies a deep hatred for others humans. Correspondingly Hazlitt’s conceptualization of religion exemplifies the toxicity of society, because religion is so key to society, and religion is only a justifier to in act human hatred.
Miles was cowardly while asking for Priscilla’s hand in marriage. Ichabod was quiet and meek, while Brom was loud and bold. All these relationships were great examples of the strong feeling in books and poem written in that time. After evaluating the different courtships and their results, we have come to a conclusion that all these men are very different, yet very alike. Each man who won the heart of his beloved woman had courage; the men who lost the heart of their ladies, lacked boldness.
Fighting the demons of his wings as well as fighting all of the other demons he is facing. The pictures he helps draw in your head help you to understand the point he is trying to get across. The themes of this book of poems like are very repetitive and reoccurring but personally I enjoy it.

Reverend Arthur Dimmesdale had an affair with Hester Prynne and Hester is the one being shamed for it. Being considered a god and being looked up to didn't help much either, being praised was a constant reminder of how imperfect he was and how cowardly he became because of his guilt. In conclusion, symbolism was greatly used in The Scarlet Letter to show how guilt can destroy someone. Dimmesdale has shown us that guilt can be more destructive than punishment imposed on others and that deception and secrecy can be destructive. Society has cause guilt to destroy a human by what they think
As we all know today’s school are a lot different than those in the 1960’s. During the 1960’s is was tradition to open each and every day with a nondenominational prayer, along with the Pledge of Allegiance. Today, prayer is accepted in schools as long as it is led by the student themselves, and not the teacher. In 1962 the case of Engel vs. Vitale went to the Supreme Court based off the idea of whether school sponsored prayer violates the First Amendment Establishment Clause. At this time there was a general law in New York State that required every school within the state to open each day with the Pledge of Allegiance, and a prayer that did not restrict denomination.
