The image of his wrestles contorting allows the audience to see just how emotionally effected Hitchens was. His audience feels sympathy for his distress and understands the extent of Mark’s effect on the author through the use of his striking imagery, hear the audience begins to understand the enormous force one can have on another. However great the effect of Mark’s death was on Hitchens, it cannot compare to the effect on Mark’s parents. Hitchens uses imagery again when attempting to illustrate the parents feelings, writing that they live in “a world that alternates very sharply and steeply between grief and pride” (2). Hitchens creates an image of another world, as if to say that in this world, one could never understand how the Dailys must feel.
With the new belief that people he loved and trusted had succumbed to evil, Goodman Brown’s faith was shaken. He returned home as a changed man, “Young Goodman Brown came slowly into the street of Salem Village, staring around him like a bewildered man” (Hawthorne 383). Faith burst into such joy at the sight of him and went to kiss her husband before the whole village, but “Goodman Brown looked sternly and sadly into her face, and passed on without a greeting” (Hawthorne 383). According to Hawthorne, it was a dream of evil omen for young Goodman Brown. “A stern, a sad, a darkly meditative, a distrustful, if not a desperate man, did he become, from a night of that fearful dream” was the unfortunate outcome for Brown (Hawthorne

Firstly, living with the Hubermann’s has a lot of effects on Liesel’s actions. For example, it teaches Liesel to be selfless. “ There was a trace of a grin on her face as she and Rudy Steiner, her best friend, handed out the pieces of bread on the road.” (Zusak 440). Although times are hard for not only the Hubermann’s but Germany as a whole, Liesel demonstrates the same selflessness that Hans does.

As the creature explains to Frankenstein in their meeting, “I admired virtue and good feelings and loved the gentle manners and amiable qualities of my cottagers, but I was shut out from intercourse with them, except through means which I obtained by stealth, when I was unseen and unknown, which rather increases than satisfied the desire I had of becoming one among my fellows,” (Shelley, 2000, p.110). He utilizes his observations of the cottagers to create his own ideals of humanity. He remains true to these words as he is very compassionate about the De Lacey family’s poverty.

His instincts, like any child in Romantic writing, are positively driven even though, unlike the boys in the Innocence poem, he understands his oppression.” Norton and I had the same ideas about why the parents sold him, and thought that he was happy. Norton said, “It also serves to absolve them from feelings of guilt as ‘They think they have done me no injury’. Having forced their son into enslavement, teaching him to sing ‘the notes of woe’, the parents then head to church to praise ‘God and his priest and king’, who, the boy tells us, ‘make up a heaven of our misery’. Interestingly, in an earlier draft, Blake wrote that this grim trio ‘wrap themselves up in our misery’, suggesting that they take comfort from the misery of others. The final version is far more powerful; the speaker’s parents collude with Church and State, actively constructing a heaven out of the misery of others, or, as Nicholas Marsh argues, ‘they “make up” a heaven where, in fact, there is “misery”’.

Edgar Allan Poe was often described as being intelligent and talented yet cocky.
