The author’s use of satire is superbly honed in this essay. A satirical work ridicules stupidity in other people, and through the use of ironic language implies ideas that are the opposite of those expressed. No finer example than the Proposer of this story, considering cannibalising infants, as a “modest” suggestion for curing poverty in Ireland. Swift spares no one in this essay taking every chance to have a gibe. About landlords he says “I grant this food will be somewhat dear, and therefore very proper for landlords, who, as they have already devoured most of the parents, seem to have the best title to the children.” (Swift, 1729).
Images can evoke strong human emotion, both positive and negative, and Marjane Satrapi effectively uses graphic images to symbolize events in her life and to tell the reader of her deep, moving story of nationalism, social classes, and the loss of innocence. The use of images to symbolize important events in a story is a beneficial strategy that can be seen throughout the book. Topics that play huge roles in Persepolis are nationalism (one’s pride of their country), social classes (the separation of the rich and poor), and the loss of innocence (when a person loses their naive nature to the corruptness of the world). These ideas shape the story through persuading people’s actions. For example, nationalism gives people the courage to stand up for their country, as Marjane’s family did during the war.
In countless fairy tales and myths, passion is praised as a beautiful and moving emotion. A prince’s passionate kiss awakes his sleeping soul mate; a mother’s passionate love for her daughter makes her journey across the seven seas to find her; a father’s passion and care for his son causes him to sacrifice himself for his son’s life. However, a picture that the stories often don’t paint, is the truth behind passion, how dangerous passion is and the actions it can force one to take. In the tragedy Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare, two households, the Montagues and the Capulets, are engaged in a life long feud. The next successors in line to each house, Romeo to the house of Montagues and Juliet to the house of Capulets, fall in love with one another at first sight.

Contrary though, in scenes where Ellen takes a step back her clothes become drab and layered. The makeup used in these scenes add dark circles to Ellen’s eyes and make Ellen’s face look more angular or thin.

These details as they are used, greatly increase the emotions and realistic tone the movie tries to

Today marriage is acknowledged as a commitment between two people who love each other and want to spend eternity together, but marriage has not always been perceived like this. During the 19th century in America marriage was much like a contract, where women were to give up many of their freedoms to uphold their husbands’ demands. Too often for the women of the 19th-century, rights were taken from them and the rights they did have were always being infringed upon. “The Story of an Hour” by Kate Chopin is a great representation as to how married women felt oppressed. In the short story, Mrs. Mallard suddenly finds herself a widow and grief quickly erupts within her.
