The short poem is crafted with patterns of repetition, for there are so few lines to fit meaningful insight into. In Lucille Clifton’s short poem, “Good Times” she uses repetition for emphasis and uniformity. In her use of repetition and anaphora, Clifton gives the seventeen line poem a lengthier, list-like feel and emphasizes the emotional impact of memories on the speaker, revealing a deeper, more complex aspect to the short, simple poem. The most apparent repetition in “Good Times” is the anaphora that prompts half of th lines. In repeating “and,” Clifton transforms her poem into a uniform, rhythmic list of the speaker 's memories (Clifton 2).
She gives in to Arnold Friend and does not bother to fight him back any longer. In Greek mythology, Apollo (the god of music) challenged the Satyr Marsyas to a musical contest after finding out that he was spectacular at playing the double flute. Though beliefs like this seem to have nothing in common with this story, they do. Apollo challenges Satyr to prove who is the best and Arnold Friend challenges Connie to come to him and be his. Apollo, knowing that he is a god, is confident that he will win and Friend, knowing that had the ability to manipulate, is confident as well.
. with a great misshapen head and a shock of tangled, disheveled hair,’ ‘a little blood-thirsty imp’ with ‘venomous, menacing eyes’ and ‘thick lips’ who exhibited ‘bestiality and cruelty’ and ‘a half animal fury’.” (207). But he fails to interpret the racism of that description, causing his idea to look underdeveloped. It would be beneficial and interesting to have this idea be examined, but it is certainly not necessary due to it not being the main idea of the essay. While Bertman’s essay may be short in length and lacking explanations for smaller ideas, it is still well developed enough to be cited in someone else’s
But this as we soon come to realize is merely a literary subterfuge. Manoj Das being a creator of many modern fables and fantasies appears to have perfected a creative technique peculiarly responsive to the various levels of readership. His short stories are a delight for the lazy reader seeking merely to while away the time in the over-crowded railway
O. Henry (1867 – 1910), an American writer, who is famous mainly for his short stories. These stories usually focus on the image of the poor who spends their daily living to earn. Perhaps O. Henry knows so well about this kind of life that his stories always convey the heartfelt sympathy with the characters. Besides his sympathy, he expresses his humor through every story so that his stories always contain unexpected climaxes, which lead to an amazing ending. Some of his celebrated stories are “the Ransom of Red Chief”, “The Cop and the Anthem”, “A retrieved Reformation”, “The Duplicity of Hargraves”, “The Caballero’s Way”, and especially “The Gift of the Magi”.
“Dusk,” by Saki (H.H. Munro) – From “The Complete Saki,” by Saki – Section: “Beats and Super-Beasts.” “Dusk,” is a story by Hector Hugh Munro, who goes by the pseudonym Saki a master of the short story. Most of his stories satirise the entire Edwardian Era and its culture. “Dusk,” is not like any other Saki tale. It does not have the humour; however this also shows his versatility.
The last poem for analysis is written by George Barker and seem to be completely different from others that have been represented above. Despite of a really short form, the poetry consist of a lot of symbols, it is higly symbolical piece of poetry. The poem is not just short, also rhyme scheme is very simple – ababab. Barker combined simple form with complex symbolism that makes the poem unique and not simple at all. On the first glance, the reader spots the themes of paradise, beautiful surroundings and bright, promising future.
What we cannot help but notice is the apparent simplification of the aspects of the double that Poe set up in his short story. Where the eye doubled with “I”, only the symbolic Evil Eye, reminder of death, remains. Where it was not very clear whether the madman and the old man were two distinct persons, all adaptations choose two actors to play them –the only ones which seem to deviate from this are the spoken words and Lou Reed’s songs, as only one man speaks for the entire tale and thus gives the impression to be all the characters. Simplification, or elision, is an inevitable process which every adapter must apply to their work, otherwise they risk ending up with a film like Erich von Stroheim’s adaptation of Frank Norris’ McTeague. Indeed, when this Austrian-American filmmaker decided to adapt this novel as faithfully as he could, it resulted in a nine-hour film which he eventually had to cut down to two hours of nonsense.
Here are a few concise sentences of an article, friendship: "Not to mobilize the company faces is just a gallery." "There is no sycophant as self-Man." This phrase conveys the idea that every human being has the highest opinion possible of it. In other words, each man has his ego, and that in most cases, significantly inflated ego. Article, studies abound in aphoristic sentences or some epigrammatic who became famous for what they are on the lips of those men who had never heard the name of Bacon.
