He went insane and had to go to an asylum, all because of the strong feelings that conquered his life. It does indeed apply a negative effect on love. Overall, the writer successfully used various techniques and poetic devices that portray love as both a negative and positive emotion. He widely uses personifications as a technique that creates vivid images, as well as some similes and metaphors. I felt like love is an emotion that can either make or break your life, as I was reading the end of the poem where he was questioning himself and began to portray love as a negative emotion.
This creates a new depth to the character and begins to highlight the idea that he isn 't content with the way he is “living” and seeks something deeper. As the story develops, we begin to see that the Demon is motivated to cause terror by very real, human characteristics and begins to project them. The Demon has the desire to break free of his isolation and sees the chance to do so when he is captivated by his love interest Tamara in the Caucasus, who is to be wed making her unavailable to the Demon. It can be see that the Demon believes that love will fix what he has done wrong and end the distance that has been created between him and the rest of the world. The symbol of isolation and it’s cause of emotion is the first step that Lermontov makes to create a relatable main character.
This aspect can affect how the listener feels when hearing this song; the mood fluctuates between depressing and deep aspiration. The profusion of metaphors and personification explains the overall theme and story in a figurative sense. An illustration of a metaphor is the reiteration of the word “run,” which takes on a metaphorical connotation. “Running,” in this sense, is toxic; it only brings pain to the person who is performing the act, which is the singer in this scenario. The repetition also emphasizes how long the singer has been running in the relationship he is currently in.

He supports his idea with three possible hypothesis: first, the narrator was a victimized child that resulted with some psychotic symptoms; second, the narrator is re-enacting his abuse to make the old man feel what he suffered; and for last, the old man is a victim of the narrator´s threat of incest. In several occasions the narrator stated that he loved the old man and did not wanted his gold; making a clear connection between them. After re-reading the story it actually made sense what this essay is trying to explain. His obsession can be a result of the unknown truth that will haunt him forever. Kachur uses a study written by Etherington that states that children abused by the same gender parent will have a greater problem with self-differentiation and establishment of personal identity; which can be an explanation of how the narrator sees the “Evil Eye” and the old
“The Black Cat” by Edgar Allan Poe is a short story focussing around the mental and emotional stability of the narrator. Looking back through a course of events, the narrator describes his point of view allowing the reader to dive deeper into his thought process and psychological state. The narrator himself writes in first person in order to explain his side of the story. He does this in hopes that his audience will understand his actions; however, the narrator is subconsciously trying to convince himself of his sanity by his explanations. Through the fear of accepting the truth, that he is a cold blooded killer, full of hatred, and has a broken empty soul, the narrator lacks the ability to see that the black cat in his story is not real.
In The Uncanny, Freud strongly emphasizes the study and beauty of the fearful and the terrifying. He elicits this subject as what is left behind of aesthetics. Aesthetics is the theory of quality of feeling, which essentially includes positive and negative feelings. However, this theory, in its existence, has neglected to include the uncanny, preferring to concentrate on beauty and, generally, on more positive emotions. In Freud’s essay, he glorifies the subject of the uncanny by examining and elaborating on the feelings evoked by anxiety and why they are crucial in the minds of individuals.
This constant reminder of sin negatively impacts the one wearing the object because it causes other characters to judge and act evil towards them. Derek Maus discusses Hawthorne's use of symbolism throughout his work and claims that Hawthorne values the use of symbolism because it allows for him to deliver a message in a non traditional way (Maus 43). Hawthorne uses symbolism in his works because it allows for him to display the negative effects of guilt in sin in a way that will cause readers to become more engaged. Symbolism shows the negative effects of guilt and sin in both The Scarlet Letter and “The Minister’s Black Veil” because in both stories the main character faces hardship simply because of an object they wear that has no other meaning than to represent sin. Although these items were only symbols, the characters wearing them faced harsh judgement because of what they
However, others have been touched by the terror written in pieces of literature, wishing people to understand the horror and tragedy that befell those involved. Poet Wilfred Owen composer of"Dulce et Decorum est” presents to the reader a vivid elegy, aiming to prove that war is not heroic nor decorous. As an English soldier he had to endure the hardships, but wishes that through
The human body is physiologically made up of primarily three qualities. Although, people paint each one in their own way; the conscious mind holds its walls up towards reality and rational occurrences, while behind that layer is the unconscious mind that pushes the boundaries of our reality --perhaps even supernatural beings -- and both of these are tied to the soul: the purity and core existence for homosapians. Thus, this idea gets expanded on--even crosses the line--during the short story “The Fall of the House of Usher” by Edgar Allan Poe. During the story, the narrator goes to visit his ill friend Roderick Usher in his home and while there, he experiences rather bizarre situations that is merely brushed away until the very arch at the end of the story. This story brings along the imagination, and those qualities of the conscious and unconscious mind, along with the soul, are shown through the characters Poe has created.
