All in all, Daisy's recklessness started the events that caused great suffering, destruction and distress of many characters. Jay Gatsby's death affected the plot of the novel because it allowed the audience to recognize one of the true meanings of Fitzgerald's work. Gatsby's death represents the corruption of the American dream. Myrtle Wilson's and Jay Gatsby's death helps to illuminate the meaning of the work as a
The moment he genuinely watched what he'd made he felt pounded and he said it unmistakably "and breathless horror and disgust filled my heart". Furthermore, Victor is affected very deeply by the unjust murders of Justine and William. He is completely devastated by the fact that indirectly he was at fault for both of their deaths. He explains this guilt and regret through his statement, “It was to be decided, whether the result of my curiosity and lawless devices would cause the death of two of my
War Photographer Comparison In War Photographer, the poet portrays that conflict is severe and explores the disastrous effects of it. This is implied through metaphors especially when it describes seeing a man ‘a half-formed ghost’. Remains similarly explores the idea of conflict but shows its lasting effect through similar techniques like repetition as when the poet repeats ‘dozen rounds.’ In War Photographer, Duffy uses a range of techniques to explore the idea of conflict and its evil nature. As said before, metaphors are used like ‘half formed ghost’ to portray the photograph that he took was of a dying man and to get the reader to understand the severity of war and the lives cost in it. The overall point of this poem is to convey the cruelty of war and what it accomplishes.
He is upset about the fact he was murdered in such a cruel way “To die so miserably, to feel the murders grasp”(60). The moments of supernatural and mystery are also seen in this novel and have a huge impact
‘Anthem for Doomed Youth’ written by Wilfred Owen. In both poems, the poet has described life in the World War One but at different stages of war. ‘Attack’ is a poem that revels the realness and harshness of war while on the other hand ‘Anthem for Doomed Youth’ revels the horror of war and how unfortunate it is to die in war. For the structure of ‘Attack’, the first six lines describes the vile landscape and the next six lines describes the soldiers as they go over the top. The poet draws a very clear picture of the scene and creates atmosphere while the tension builds up then shows the destruction of war.
In one instance, it is used to convey that the mourners believe they should try to prevent such a tragedy from occurring again because of the impact the deaths had on them. For example, in the fourth, stanza it states, “for there we strike by day and by night, / there we kick by day and by night, / there we spit by day and by night / until the doors of hatred fall” the repetition allows the reader to realize that the narrator is frustrated by the war that has caused the militiamen to die. The repetition of “there we…by day and by night” indicates that the mourners are greatly impacted by the militiamen’s deaths because they are willing to take action “by day and by night” to make sure this does not happen again. In addition, repetition is also used to relay how strongly the mourners feel about the loss of the soldiers. They feel “more than anger, more than scorn, more / than weeping,” and the “mothers [are] pierced by anguish and death”.
He set the tone for an entire generation of men and women affected by the war to think and write about the events that had resulted in a blood bath around the world. Owen’s gripping realism is important today because when we read his poetry, we feel as though we are with him on the battlefield, watching as men suffer in a frantic struggle to stay alive. Throughout this essay, I will explore the techniques used by Owen to illustrate the notion of the horror and futility of war. The reader is introduced to the horror of the war in the first lines of the poem through the description of the poor physical condition of men: “bent double, like old beggars under sacks” (1). The comparison to old beggars is interesting; it depicts how soldiers have aged prematurely by their experiences even though soldiers are usually supposed to be young and
An example of imagery would be “The “Red Death” had long devastated the country. No pestilence had ever been so fatal, or so hideous. Blood was its avatar and its seal-the redness and the horror of blood.” In this quote Poe is giving the reader an idea of the “Red Death”. The reader can really get a sense of fear or horror from this imagery. This imagery also give the reader a beginning
Twain is actively painting a picture in the reader 's mind of how Huck found the corpses and what he did with them. This added description provides the fact that grief is added on to an already mourning Huck because he went out to search for the corpses and covered their dead bodies. The added description mostly seems grotesque which adds onto the point that Huckleberry Finn portrays a fear of death. Meanwhile, the other text by Sylvia Plath ads imagery to mystify death. For example, in the text it states “thoughts gone dim.
The worst part about the physical violence in this poem is how detailed and descriptive the scenes of the battles are. How the author writes about the blood pouring out of the bodies and things like that. This leads to some psychological violence and problems because of how many men died in this war and watching their friends die right in front of them. There is a lot of physical violence, but there is more to violence than
After running out she blest god for saving her. “I blest His name that gave and took.” (Bradstreet) In the other story, Edwards’s sermon, God wasn’t never joyful like in Bradstreet’s. For example, “So that, thus it is that natural men are held in the hand of God, over the pit of the hell.” (Edwards) He hated everyone who sin and they deserve to go to hell. Edwards’s sermon and Bradstreet’s poem weren’t very similar. The meaning of fire was the only thing that was similar.
Yehuda Amichai’s Poem, The Diameter of the Bomb, describes the physical boundaries that the bomb can reach and the tangible materials it destroys within that mathematical radius. On a more complex level, the bomb does not just obliterate physical objects in it direct path, but instead violence radiates and emotionally destroys a multitude around the world. The speakers tone plays an important role throughout the progression of the poem, helping emphasis the true nature of this disaster. Starting with a detached almost robotic recitation of cold technical facts about the bomb- its diameter, “effective range”, and the number of casualties resulting from the explosion. The way these sentences are presented is almost as if these first two lines
This quote from the last page of Lord of the Flies is probably one of the most memorable ones. I feel as though Ralph felt truly damaged by the horrors of humankind. “the darkness of a mans heart” is a metaphor for the savagery witnessed on that island. I think that the word ‘fall in the next line of that quote is figurative and literal because piggy literally fell to his death but it could also be a metaphor for his decline in power throughout the
Because I cannot have another in my life!” and to rip up his confession paper, because he put a lot of respect to his name and did not want the confession hung on the door of the church. In the Crucible, John Proctor tries to save everyone from the vendetta of the afflicted girls by admitting his
