Taking an example from Cummings work, he occasionally doesn’t capitalize the letter “I” because he wants us to focus on why he did that. What is the meaning behind him capitalizing certain letters, and using a bundle of semicolons in his work? It makes us research the poems more to try to understand it better, it makes the poem worth reading. Works Cited Baum, S. V. Esti, E.E.C: E.E. Cummings and the Critics.
Even though he only wrote “Identity” this poem shows so many from just reading this. When reading this poem automatically could tell how much feeling was behind this, not knowing what he has gone through. He used a situation that was all around and such a huge issue that is important to the society today. Also using an issue and putting it into a totally different story, but with the same meaning. For example, in his poem, it state “I 'd rather smell of musty, green stench than of sweet, fragrant lilac.
Metaphor: A metaphor is a figurative language that can express the relationship between two things, and this relationship does not literally denote in order to suggest a similarity. In the novel Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, by J. K. Rowling, she use metaphor to describe the surface of the lake. “The surface of the lake was once more shining black glass: the ripples had vanished unnaturally fast” (525). The comparison in this sentence is between the surface of lake and the glass, implying that how smooth the lake is. Also, the words “shining” and “black” show the how the lake like at that time.
For her it’s a tragedy, since she needs all those items to prepare for the day. Despite the desperate situation she still manages to carry on day after day, which is a proof of an incredible strength of her character. Swift’s satire on women displays in the title; Corinna is the exact opposite of a beautiful young nymph and throughout the poem she is also sarcastically described as a lovely goddess or bashful muse. What the author tries to exhibit is that appearance is not the most important aspect of a human being and women who are not conventionally attractive can still be admired for her
In Annie John by Jamaica Kincaid, the author uses thematic symbols such as “the black thing” and Annie and her mother seeing “eye to eye” to guide the reader to a position where it is clear to see that Annie and her mother do not have the same, sweet relationship they used to have. Overtime, Kincaid develops the story in such a way where it is easy to see that the relationship between Annie John and her mother begins to go downhill and is not the same as it was in the beginning of the novel. Annie clearly begins to despise her mother as she realizes that her mother is not treating her like the little girl she used to be. In this passage of Annie John, the use of “the two black things” provides a clear example of how the Annie John and her mother are very similar, yet they are never able to retain a good relationship because there is space between them. Throughout the novel, there are many circumstances where Annie wants to be loved and treated like a child by her mother, however, her mother treats her in a different manner than what she expects.
In this book the social worker is very reluctant to as what's going on. She always tries to give Barbra the benefit of doubt, even though its not whats right for Dawn. Cathy calls Ruth trying to get better conditions for dawn. Everytime Ruth just says, “Well let’s give Barbra a call and let her know whats going on”(Glass 65). Ruth is really hard to like especially when we as reader see what's really going on with Dawn and what she's going through.
One line that I found interesting, "Figural development in a poem is possible in a villanelle. But the form refuses to tell a story. It circles around and around, refusing to go forward…" (Strand, Boland 8) At first I found this hard to believe and still have to ponder it more, that a poem can't tell a story, but if you look at it less figuratively you realize what the authors are trying to prove because the rules of writing a villanelle restrict it to be repetitive and looping the lines
Alfred Prufrock, Mr.Prufrock is considered emotionally. In the poem, he is debating with himself whether or not he should talk to a woman he is interested in. If we compare Mr.Prufrock to the standards that men are kept to, he wouldn’t be considered “manly”. Mr. Prufrock has many different emotions that are expressed in the poem. In the poem, it says “And in a short, I was afraid”.
“A Streetcar Named Desire” is a play which mostly revolves around Blanche’s delusional states. As from the beginning of the play till the end we are propelled into a world of truth and reality which is being hidden through the use of light. Light is a symbolism of truth and reality and thus avoiding light could be interpreted as hiding the truth. This is evident in the line “her delicate beauty must avoid a strong light”. The use of the adjective “Strong” allows the reader to visualize the scene of Blanche shying away from the light.
Louise Erdrich's poem, “The Lady in the Pink Mustang,” conveys the loss of self worth and identity felt by a prostitute. In lines 1 and 2, it is said that “The sun goes down for hours, taking more of her along / than the night leaves her with” (Erdrich 150). This shows that the prostitute feels as if the darkness of night chips away at her personality until she can no longer recognize herself.
(TITUBA:) I have no power on this child, sir. (HALE:) You most certainly do, and you will free her from it now! When did you compact with the Devil? (TITUBA:) I don 't compact with no Devil!” Abigail knew that soon her "sinful" behavior would come out. It was easy to blame Tituba, since not only was she a slave, but the mysteries of her culture would come to make it seem easy and that she was to blame.
The lake is 92 miles long and was created when the 2,543-foot Bagnell Dam to provide hydroelectric power, stopping the flow of the Osage River. Even though the lake was created for this purpose, it rapidly became a tourist attraction. Although most of the shoreline is privately owned, 17,500 acres was set aside at the beginning for a national park. This part of the shore is now owned by Lake of the Ozarks State Park, which is the biggest state park
Spotted Lake is a Lake near Osoyoos town, (British Columbia), Canada. The Lake has no input or outlet and contains extremely high levels of various minerals, mainly magnesium sulphate, sodium sulphate and calcium. A priori it may seem that a lake does not give much play beyond its beauty or its geological origin. But it is enough to pose the view on the surface to see that it looks nothing like others. Since during World War I a daily ton of minerals were extracted for the manufacture of ammunition, curiously with Chinese labor.
I admit that I lack confidence. I believe the main reason is because I was not born in the United States, and English is not my first language. I was always afraid to appear to be different, and I have worked really hard trying to fit in. I believe during the process, I have lost my identity. Therefore, I decided to read The Confidence Code by Katty Kay and Claire Shipman.
As a side note, clockwork orange is a vile, wicked movie, which you guys should not bother watching. It is a demonic, sicking piece of garbage. That is a warning. I do not suggest that you watch that disturbing, evil movie, at all. On a lighter note, the video that Bunnee just put up, not too long ago, was a waste of my time to watch, but she looks neat-looking in it in some ways, but the video is lame, for the most part, with the queerish-looking dude in it, which is not Dogman.
