After realizing that the rose can no longer be held or reached, the tone shifts towards pessimism and negativity. The fact that the “aching heart” (10) desires to free the rose from the “ice so bitter cold” (11) implies that the snow is now seen as a prison that prevents interaction from taking place. The coming of winter allows for a shield from the suffering from autumn but at the same time freezes the rose and prevents it from carrying out the human characteristics that were addressed in the quatrain before generating a feeling of disdain for
Love is a complex idea to grasp, but the two texts help us better understand this concept by showing us the conflicting bonds of George and Lennie and Che and his son Jesse. Love is not when someone can not accept and care for themselves or others. This is also shown in the film “ La Mission” when Che finds out that his son Jesse is homosexual and can not accept him, at first. In the film, Che and Jesse begin to fight, then Che tells Jesse, “I want you out of my house. You make me sick to my stomach.
Milkman does this by going on a journey into his family's past to backtrack to his grandfather, Macon Dead the first, to find out his family’s past. He does this with the help of many people along the way including his best friend Guitar, his father, Macon Dead the second, and his aunt, Pilate Dead. Throughout the novel, readers will see many references to flight. Flight is a crucial part to both developing of the story and developing of the theme. Throughout Song of Solomon, Morrison develops the theme that no matter how long it takes, the flight of the soul will lead to a better life.

“The man was shocked. It was though he had just heard his own sentence of death” (London 85). The bitter, Yukon climate proposed numerous problems for the man in Jack London’s “To Build a Fire.” Often times, the man’s foolishness caused him to be unprepared in terms of survival. Yet, there are countless solutions that could have potentially saved the man’s life had he been prepared, navigated with someone else, and listened to his instincts instead of his judgment; similar to the dog who the man ventured with. These problems in London’s short story, which led to the man’s fatal end, are the man not being well prepared, traveling alone, and his confliction between his judgment versus his instincts.
Ice and cold also represent isolation and seclusion which occurred very often throughout the story. The reason ice and cold represent instability and inhumane activities is because Victor first created the monster in a very cold, icy place and also in the season of winter. Ice and cold also represent lack of love and affection which was in the case of the monster. The second the monster came to life Victor is filled with the horror at what he had done. “How can I...black lips.” This shows Victor realizing the inhumane activity he has done and how mentally unstable he has become.
This short story contains an important theme that differs from “The Cask of Amontillado”. Human nature is a muted balance of light and dark or good and evil. Often this unstable balance is maintained; except, when there is a transition, for any reason, the dark or evil can consume the mind. In this situation it is the evil eye of the old man that sends the narrator into a demented state. It is his irrational fear that eventually summons his evil side to commit an unnecessary murder.
In metaphoric terms this means Hardships in life. When Frost uses begin to die in fall he means the hardships start coming. Dally is represented by this part because as soon as Johnny died his life flipped around and started to get hard. “Damnit, Johnny…” he begged , slamming one fist against the wall, hammering it to make it obey his will. “Oh, damnit, Johnny, don’t die, please don't die…” He suddenly bolted through the door and down the hall.This just shows how dependent Dally was on Johnny and his friendship, but now he’s going have to struggle to make it without him in his life\ “So Edan sank to grief.” In literal terms this means All growth is dead.
This is effectively communicated in Robert Frost’s ‘Stopping by the Woods on a Snowy Evening’ through its use of imagery and dark sensory associations, portraying a pessimistic life of an individual. The catalyst of the reflective lake extrapolates that discovery does not need to be momentous, but merely reflective, allowing him to renew and re-engage with his own sense of reality. Furthermore this is efficaciously demonstrated in James McTeigue’s ‘V for Vendetta’ through high camera shots and low lighting to convey vulnerability and isolation. The hellish torture and the brutality of the government Evey endured behaved as a platform upon which she discovered and renewed her perception of herself and the world around her. Thus both texts are effectual in communicating that discovery and a change of perspective is made possible when we remove ourselves to a place of solace and reflection.
