Oliver uses the words “one day” that tell us that the individual is getting this feeling to go on the journey all of a sudden (92:1). This leads the individual to begin out on this journey of their life. They have to break away from the shouting voices and the tugging at their ankles that have been holding them back from finding themselves. I believe that Oliver used this phrase as a way to guide us through the poem. She is keeping the point known of “you knew what you had to do” but repeating in different places throughout the poem (92:13).
To Rowling, aiding in others happiness as well as helping those who cannot help themselves is important. The use of repetition is to emphasize the idea of maintaining one 's values and working hard to make sure this happens. By placing her wishes for the students at the end of her speech, she leaves them thinking about what their values are, and how important it is to preserve them. Also, Rowling uses juxtaposition as a form of showing that there are two sides to every situation. She wants her audience to know that depending on perspective, outcome can be affected.
However, after reading it several times, I came to the conclusion as to what the meaning of the poem might be, because Roethke is trying to show us that we as humans often follow a path not of our owns that is often pre-determined by our brains or other meanings. In addition, I found this poem to be relatable to me because of how I was in the past, and how I currently am in the present, and how I plan to change for the better in the future. Sometimes the path that we want to choose to follow is led off the road by something. In addition, this can be the result of an outside force telling us that we are not capable of doing the said-thing or something else. Conversely, this is the message that I kind of interpreted from Lines 4-7 when he
I groped for the stair railing in the dark and felt a warm hand take mine. Startled, I looked up into Ultima’s brown, wrinkled face (Anaya 24).” The loss of innocence ties in with the mythical aspects of the novel because when Antonio feels saddened by an event that will eventually reflect on him, he turns to Ultima as a saving grace to treat him and make him feel better. The loss of innocence is an important theme in the novel considering it is a major issue that Antonio has to face upon aging, and Ultima acting as the supernatural force brings light to the hard-to-face
The big message is for the readers to live and learn from experiences. The authors want their audiences to use these tales and examples as life lessons and hope for them to utilize these sources in their future lives. These two ideas are presented through the use of figurative language, mainly metaphors. In addition, the similar tone of these pieces allows the author to connect more deeply with the readers. Toni Morrison’s Nobel lecture, folktales, and several poems illustrate how metaphors and tone are used to describe experience and caution the readers.
When people read others writing, whether it is contemporary or classic literature, they are taught about how it is human nature to always want more than they currently have and the dangers that can arise from not being humble, which helps shape their identity and can be used as a guide throughout life. People may want to learn about their fate, but when they hear it, they will act in ways that would normally seem strange, causing them to strive to be
The poem “Speech to the Young” by Gwendolyn Brooks is a poem talking to younger people that advises them on their lives going forward. It tells them to never give up, don’t let people deter them and always have sights on what you want to accomplish. Clarified explanation of the message, effective and clever use of hyperbole and metaphors, and choosing a certain audience all contributed to the overall relevance and flow of this poem. The message that this poem displays is one that is heard, taught and loved by many people. This poem encourages readers to face the reality that life throws all kinds of curveballs--which in this poem, resemble people who are negative, tough to deal with, and just simply get in your way and deter you from achieving what you desire.
The road is considered to be a symbol of his multiple life decisions. When you first read the poem your first instinct is to think that the “traveler” just needs to pick a path to take; but it has a greater meaning. The fact that Frost chose to use this symbol to portray the message makes us have a clear idea of what he is going through. Towards the end of the poem, Frost shows signs of regret because of the road he chose, it shows us how in life a decision can really impact your life and can shape who you are as a person and what type of person you become. The use of symbolism in this poem is basically what leads you into understanding what it’s really trying to say.
Fahrenheit 451 is a book of warning. It is a reminder that we need knowledge to survive, and we need people who crave this knowledge to take over in generations to come. We need knowledge to combat ignorance and we get this knowledge from reading books and listening to other people's opinions. It is a warning of what might happen if we were to let the ignorance win, and a warning to never let this happen. It is a warning that what we have is valuable and a reminder to never take that for granted.
Mary Oliver’s poem, “The Journey”, is a narrative on the many obstacles one must overcome in order to forge their own path. The way the poem is written makes the reader the subject of the poem because everyone must overcome an obstacle of some form in their life. “The Journey” illustrates the very real struggles everyone must go through to discover something in their life, whether it is their own destiny or their self-worth. Oliver’s poem states that the journey of life is difficult, but she knows that everyone must go through it. Although not stated within the lines of the poem, Oliver hints that the journey of life is a person’s own journey to discover themselves.
Even write out the stories that go against the new goal( not enough time, expensive gym fee, too busy, etc.). Secondly, you should re-write the story. “Tell the story of the new way of being. Tell the story of the person who appreciates life, and takes time to take care of him/her-self.” Research shows that self-story changing makes a profound change on whether or not a person sticks with and reaches his/her goal from the start. This author also says how she has tried both the 3-step method and the creating a new self-story.
First, he used a variation of sentences to make the reader pause and think of what will happen next which emphasizes the theme more. And also, Bradbury uses repetition to allow the reader to begin to think that a certain phrase has a deeper meaning that what you think. This story has a strong meaning that everyone should learn and follow by to have a
Their experiences allowed them to write about the types of issues that leaders hoping to begin a Safe Zone training program will be faced with. In their writings, they establish the importance of continuing forth in the development of these vital training programs with mindfulness to the types of resistance that they may encounter. Additionally, the types of people who decided to participate in Safe Zone training vary widely and may have different needs and motivations. This means that Safe Zone training can make some people uncomfortable and depending on the audience, there may be resistance encountered. Lastly, they establish that it is a significant commitment and people who take these leadership positions should note that they are choosing to be an active member in a vital role on their campus.
Contrarily, Morrie was more focuses on giving everyone a moral lesson on life. The idea of “Don’t let go too soon, but don’t hang on too long.” (Albom 162) really sums up the entire book. All throughout the book Morrie proclaims to us that we should always love and be compassionate but, you need a balance of the past and present. Without it, your life will not be fully lived. This lesson it so much more deeper than it appears.
