She states “we all often feel like we are pulling teeth” when it comes to constructing and composing a piece of work (Lamott 468). This simile makes Lamott feel more relatable to the reader because this is a feeling that most inexperienced and discouraged writers go through. Saying things like “feel despair and worry settle on my chest like an x-ray apron” only connects the reader to Lamott even more (Lamott 469). Once the reader becomes engaged and forms a connection with what the writer is saying and feeling, continuing to read the essay is easy. At this point the reader wants to know what can be done to shake the feelings of “despair and worry” when it comes to
Just as Shakespeare did, she uses a comparison to a relatable subject. She used her literature as her child, but unlike Shakespeare, she does not believe that her subject is perfect. Charlotte referred from the beginning of the piece to the work being “ill-formed” meaning full of grammatical mistakes and how the work no matter how much she tried to mend it she still did not see it as perfect. Both poets also hold a very close relationship to the subject of the poem. The attachments are alike in the matter that the author uses common metaphors.
The first time reading through a poem, literary devices such as symbolism, figurative language, hyperboles or oxymorons can throw a reader off. However, after the reader analyzes and truly understands the poem, these devices can add more depth and understanding, allowing the readers to see deeper inside the poet’s mind. In his poem, ‘The Broken Heart’, John Donne incorporates specific devices to portray that love is an all-consuming, vicious monster that can ruin you. In ‘The Broken Heart’, John Donne’s descriptive vocabulary, explaining the way the speaker’s heart was shattered beyond repair, forces the reader to imagine his or her heart as splintered or crushed as Donne’s. In other words, Donne uses rich imagery to add tangibility to his piece and aide the reader in accurately picturing what’s being discussed.
This is seen to be true in The Kite Runner when Amir learns about remorse and absolution through his life experiences. Over the course of the novel, Amir is presented as a morally ambiguous character because of the two traits, guilt and self-forgiveness, he is presented with. This moral ambiguity comes into play when Amir commits a hurtful act, but is not seen as totally corrupt. The reason for this is, “we can relate to [morally ambiguous characters]...” (Zafar, Paragraph 1). People can relate to Amir’s character because many have gone through similar situations in which they had to overcome remorse for their actions.
Language can be manipulated as an instrument of control. In Animal Farm, by George Orwell, the pigs gradually twist and distort a rhetorical world of socialist revolution to justify their behavior and to keep the other animals in the dark. "People say they love truth, but in reality they want to believe that which they love is true." Quotes: Old majors speech: Comrades _> they are friends makes them equal on some level what does this do to me?? Ive had a lkong life _ experience Speaks directly to his people Animal Farm Topic Tracking: Propaganda Propaganda 1: Old Major uses some techniques of propaganda in his speech to the animals - he identifies humans as the enemy, and attempts to unite them all against this common enemy.
In the novel that is demonstrated when Lennie says to George: “But I would eat none, I’d leave it all for you George.” With those words Lennie demonstrates the admiration and loyalty he has for his best friend. Thus, Steinbeck uses Lennie to demonstrate the purpose of the novel. He wants to indicate that no matter what are the circumstances or what people thinks about it, if you care a person, you have to be loyal and unconditional with
Hughes and cullen both state their opinion using poetry but they don't both are read with the same types of emotion. Hughes and cullen both use an underlying emotion to write their poetry. Hughes uses anger and force. Cullen uses a more informational and calm approach. Hughes uses strong descriptively forceful phrases like “fester like a sore” or “stink like rotten meat” when writing to gross out the reader but also to entice them to read more.
Poems are short meaningful pieces of literature that can be interpreted in multiple ways depending upon the reader at hand. That is what makes a poem unique compared to other literature pieces because in a poem the author tends to use figurative language to fulfill meaning behind their work. One poem “Love is a Sickness Full of Woes” by Samuel Daniel describes the pains of being lovesick. Love can either benefit us if nurtured and cared for, but if not tended to then let loose can ultimately hurt us. As to another poem “American Solitude” by Grace Schulman describes a life of solitude being most warming to the soul to ward off loneliness.
According to James G. Southworth, Professor of Poetry at University of Toledo, “Theodore Roethke is an intensely introspective poet (Southworth 326).” Most of his poems are difficult for readers to understand, but his poems help us to think deeply and gain knowledge about life. “The Waking” is an example of Roethke’s thoughtful work. He uses metaphors to express his feeling of human life. Metaphors are tools that help us to compare one thing in terms of another without using like or as. According to Joni J.
Allusions play a very important role in enhancing the meaning in the poem The love Song of Alfred J. Prufrock by T.S Eliot. They undoubtedly help the reader understand certain themes and ideas that are present throughout the poem. The poem is about a middle-aged man named Prufrock that is very insecure and lives a very dull uneventful life. He is very educated and intelligent but he cannot work up the courage to approach a woman that he is romantically interested in. He constantly imagines what other people would say to him about his many shortcoming and insecurities.
