“Once Upon a Time” is divided into two stories with two different readers, but they contain same problems which is fear and reactions to it. In both cases, the stories include perceived dangers to the protagonists. In the first story, the female narrator hears sounds in her house, and believes that the noises come from an intruder. The second story poses a threat to a wealthy family as riots form outside their city. In each story, the characters act irrationally to these dangers.
12) In chapter one, the author uses examples of imagery to foreshadow the upcoming tragedy that Ellie will face. Although Ellie realizes that harsh conditions are approaching, similar to the growing darkness when a day transitions into night, he does not have any clue about the extent of the horror that is to come. The “growing darkness” can be translated into their hope quickly extinguishing, leaving only a depressing feeling of emptiness. In addition, the title itself, Night, portrays Elie’s hope decreasing, parallel to the decreasing amount of light during the night time. Furthermore, the quote, “No more Fear.
In both the play The Crucible and the film Good Night and Good Luck, the characters reflect the people during the Red Scare of the 1950’s and the Salem witch hunts of the 1600’s. Even though in different time periods, both events caused controversy and chaos that made people very afraid of having a communist or witch reputation. Both Edward Murrow and John Proctor are similar in the manner that they both fight against the government’s power. For example, Proctor was against Judge Danforth because he was accused of association with the devil, just like Murrow was accused of communism by Senator McCarthy. Both were willing to stand up against hysteria even if it would ruin their reputation.
In Julio Cortazar’s story, “House Taken Over,” Cortazar creates an atmosphere of fear by giving the illusion of the unknow. He does this by not letting the character or the reader know what is going to happen. For example on page 39 paragraph “ the sound came through the muted and indistinct a chair being knocked over onto the carpet or the muffled buzzing of a conversation he later the narrator describes hurling himself at the door to stop the intruder. The second way the author creates fear is by making the characters fearful of the intruder, on page 42 paragraphs 26-28 the narrator asks irene “did you have time to bring anything” and him remembering leaving behind fifth teen thousand pesos in his wardrobe. The third thing that the author
“Dr. Mortimer turned the manuscript to the light and read in a high, crackling voice the following curious, old-world narrative:” (page 7). That built up suspense for the reader and made them want to understand what is on that old transcript, the movie took it away and swiftly told only a shortened explanation. The burnt letter presented to Holmes by Barrymore gave a lot of suspense to the reader, introducing a huge possible lead to the detectives. It was an important moment that was never even introduced in the book, it made the reader wonder a lot about who this person was and what she had to do with the
The scarlet letter ‘A’ did not stand for “adultery” anymore. It stood for “able.” “The letter was the symbol of her calling. Such helpfulness was found in her, —so much power to do, and power to sympathize, —that many people refused to interpret the scarlet A by its original signification. They said that it meant Able; so strong was Hester Prynne, with a woman's strength.” (Ch. 13, pg 107) She had gained respect for having raised her child as a well behaved young girl, and having provided for the both of them with an honest living as a seamstress, all the while being cut off from the rest of society.
In Addition, Miss Emily committed the crime because the fear of being alone. Reverse to Miss Emily, the narrator committed his crime because the fear of that person being around. Moreover, Poe does not share his main character name or if the narrator is a male or female, but Faulkner does which is Miss Emily. While there are a major differences between the two narratives, the main characters in both stories have many similarities in how their desires led them to murder.
Well I have and let me explain how the quote from my first paragraph can support this. Well in the book “A Tale of Two Cities” there are a lot of examples of evil signs or “Good vs.Evil”, for example "Keep where you are because, if I should make a mistake, it could never be set right in your lifetime." Book I, Chapter 2, The Mail. This quote from the book basically shows what I mean by the word “evil’” because someone is warning somebody else in a harassing why, if they do or don’t this then the rest of there lives would be horrible or hard. Another example would be "I am a disappointed drudge, sir.
His rhetorical questioning goes straight to the readers’ hearts by bringing up the possibility that their children or grandchildren will never get the chance to view the beauty of night as Bogard sees. This strategy is the appeal of pathos by compelling the audience to directly face the emotion that he has with the idea of darkness. Thus proving that night can and will spark some kind of emotional response. His purpose in writing this story is to show his reaction to artificial light and how it is slowly destroying his beautiful darkness. Bogard then argues that we must preserve true darkness.
The difference here is that Goodman Brown could have been imagining his encounter with The Old Man or Devil, while Rainsford fell off the boat and landed on an island with a crazy murderer after him. Understanding Young Goodman Brown Young Goodman Brown leaves his home in Salem village, says goodbye to his wife, Faith. Brown has an errand to attend to and Faith doesn 't want him to go. Faith is afraid of the dark and she thinks something bad will happen to her. Brown tells her to pray and go to bed.
In late September, Willkie began to speed up the race, largely by saying that if FDR won a third term, "you may expect that we will be at war." Roosevelt said Americans would not fight in "any foreign war." Over the last month, the campaign turned into outrageous mud-slinging. On election day, FDR won 55 percent of the popular vote and the electoral votes of
Isolation is a dangerous thing. It can push us into thinking very pessimistically, which can lead us into doing harmful actions. As Miguel de Unamuno once said, “isolation is the worst possible counselor.” In Charlotte Perkins Gilman’s The Yellow Wallpaper the narrator is portrayed as psychotic as a result of solidarity; this shows us the dangerous effects of complete isolation. Women with mental illnesses in the 1800s were not taken very seriously. They were often told to get some rest, and they would be fine.
"I am world trapped in a person." I did not like reading until I came across a novel called The Secret History by Donna Tartt. Tartt shows the dangers of romanticising people and the past. She creates this ideology that no matter how good, everybody is bad. Tartt uses her characters to portray how literature does not shy away from the truth.
War isn’t always what it seems to be, as there is always a catch to it. This theme is evident in Catch-22, due to the fact that the novel revolves around the concept of a paradox known as catch-22. The decrees of war state that any soldier with a mental disorder can request to be “grounded” or sent home. Due to this decree, Yossarian constantly requests Doc Daneeka to send him home, as his behaviors are out of the ordinary and he has symptoms of the mental disorder, PTSD. Yossarian was likely afflicted with PTSD when he witnessed the morbid death of Snowden in the sky and the amplification of PTSD due to many more of his fallen and dear comrades.
The awareness of this concept definitely affects one’s writing and behaviors in that, it provides the best foundation to craft an engaging and effective piece of writing. If you have a keen awareness of who the audience of a text is, what the purpose of said text is, and have analyzed the best tool or mode to achieve that
