It’s scary to think that there are certain things that will reveal itself only when the time comes. Being kept out of the loop, desperately trying to fit all the pieces of the puzzle, only to realize that there’s one piece missing, the last piece needed to construct the whole picture. That’s how Mary Boyne, the character from Edith Wharton’s short story “Afterward”, feels. Her husband suddenly disappears and she’s left alone to try and make sense of everything, only to discover the truth long after; a truth that shattered her reality. She was the one who “sent him to Ned”; she “told him where to go!”
Many might say this passage is cruel telling from a girl who wants to torment the wild animals and other say it 's just the circle of life. What could be said about this specific passage in which many readers have different opinions? In “Pilgrim at Tinker Creek”, the flippant and earnest tones mirror the events among the frog, the girl and the waterbug, but later displays an apprehensive and mournful approach. This girl would walk through edges of an island to see the water but to enjoy the the feeling of scaring frogs, but then thought about a water bug, which in fact eats frogs. Through the course of events there was remorse that the girl felt for what happened to the frog and anger towards the action that the waterbug had committed.
Lloyd Dendinger states in his analysis, “John Crowe Ransom,” the two largest points in Ransom’s poetry are, “irony,” and the, “texture of his verse.” In other words, the majority of Ransom’s poetry focuses on irony, diction, and how they are related. According to Dendinger, these devices occur in all of Ransom’s major works. Dendinger supports this idea of recurring devices like irony, with many examples throughout the analysis.
While Milton’s retelling of the biblical tale of man’s origin within Paradise Lost is true to the bible, he manages to reinvent it in a slightly different manner – a manner that brings to light new questions about the roles Adam and Eve played in the fall of human kind. Speaking more specifically, his retelling of the fall of man seems to bring up questions about how gender operates within the biblical world and how it may relate to the time Milton comes from. At face value, the portrayal of Eve suggests that she is inferior and subordinate to Adam. There seems to be a stark contrast between Adam and Eve: where Adam is strong, rational, and intelligent, Eve is naïve and narcissistic. These differences between Adam and Eve are not only evident;
I believe that in life everyone needs to find a purpose. Life is a long, painful and dark road and without a purpose it is practically meaningless. All we are as humans are walking flesh with brains, basically zombies. As humans, we have set responsibilities to go through when on this road through life. As humans work through these responsibilities at some point you find out what your purpose is, whether it 's getting your dream job or becoming famous.
As time presses on we can always look back at poetry to truly understand the emotions that were evoked at the time. In "The Pioneer Women" and "Grandma's Apron. " we are faced with similar although not exactly identical themes and imagery that conduct elements of interest in reference to daily life and objects that hide the truth of what we know. In “The Pioneer Women” we are shipped back to the west and the start of America; more specifically in the work of women.

His life journey helps people have an understanding about what others went through as well as reflecting on the past and changing it.
In this amazing satire created by Voltaire I found myself immerse in a surreal world from the past that still haunts us in our present time. This question of who we are and our purpose in life has been seek from centuries. Human beings are in a constant search for happiness and perfection, without realizing that happiness are only moments and instead we need to enjoy the journey of life. As stated in the “United States Declaration of Independence” by Thomas Jefferson: “Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness” in a way of denoting that happiness is not a constant state but a constant search. I firmly believe that there is always room for improvement, but sometimes things are just perfect in its own imperfect way.
We sometimes sit for hours and ponder the meaning of life. Every person has his own set of wants, needs, and desires. But it isn 't until we go out and do the thing that we have imagined, that we really explore that we love. Every person has a unique mind; every person has the ability to share different views. If we ask every person the entire world what they believe on the meaning of life is, we would receive several answers.
first noble truth is that life is about suffering. To live, you should suffer. We need to persevere through physical suffering like illness, tiredness, old age and in the long run death and we need to bear mental suffering like loneliness, frustration, fear, shame, disappointment and, rage. We spend our entire lives looking for happiness when in fact; we will never be able to achieve nirvana. How can it be when our incarnation on earth is a punishment, and a test to prove the purity of our souls Now that I have explained the philosophical reason to write about the beast in the jungle.
