She is wearing a golden cross pendant and golden bracelets on both her hands. Enriquez’s utilization of the color gold gives the Virgin Mary a regal aura and establishes her importance by dressing her in one the world’s most coveted and reverenced metals. Enriquez also uses more gold than the original perhaps to appeal to the Spanish merchant he painted for. Furthermore, the painting creates a heavenly imagery and establishes the Virgin Mary as divine as she pictured surrounded by white clouds and being carried by an angel while standing on the moon. As the painting is about 2 feet tall, one would stare up at this painting and feel the majestic ambience as the Virgin Mary
Both of the works focus on what the morning means on a deeper level. They make the recipient deliberate the meaning of nature and its beauty by using their imagination. Emily Dickinson’s Will there really be a “Morning”? is incredibly short, and that is what makes it brilliant. The author uses very few words, but the questions the poem asks really makes you ponder what morning and other times of the day really mean.
For example artists may use the color “red” not only because of the color theory, but to convey love, passion, and maybe even health. The Epic of Gilgamesh is an example of a piece of literature that uses symbolism frequently. For example, it uses “garden” meaning paradise and even refers to The Garden of Eden.In the Epic of Gilgamesh by anonymous, the symbols cedar meaning immortality, mountains which represents proximity to the gods, and gates and portals symbolizing a passage to the unknown are very important within the epic itself. Cedar within the epic does not only mean a tree, but has a deeper definition as well. Cedar can often represent immortality because it doesn’t decay and it is very hard to break.
To continue, Colors also contributed to the ongoing patterns of mood and atmosphere in the book. In the novel itself red mean anger, Green means happy and Meursault points out different times of the day, the ocean, and places with colors which brings out the significance of the color. For example when he associated the color green with happiness. "The sky was green; I felt good. "(Camus 26).
But, in the end the harder route or choice will pay off. No matter how dire the circumstances may be at the time of choosing, by picking the easy way out or the choice that everyone chooses, one will always look back at the road the did not choose. Hence, Frost titled the poem, “The Road not Taken”. Robert Frost’s “The Mending Wall” was published in 1914. One of his narrative poems, it also incorporates the theme of nature and connects it to human behavior.
Haringer managed to reuse the images of the first stanza very artistically. Life, death, kisses and stars appear again to support the conclusion. The metrical change at “ohne” (v. 11) and the alliteration “Stern/Sterben” (v. 11-12) lend emphasis to the speaker’s message of how lucky the addressee should feel. Like other poems by Haringer, “Sommermüd” ends without punctuation mark
American poet, Robert Frost in his melancholy poem, “Nothing Gold Can Stay” presents the idea of nothing good lasting forever while using nature as a paradigm. This is represented through seasons with each season representing a different mood or stage in the cycle of growth. He develops his message through the personification of nature to show the drastic changes of plants. Specifically, this is presented in first couplet of the poem “Nature 's first green is gold, Her hardest hue to hold.” The line mentioned is giving nature human characteristics of possession and movement to enhance the meaning behind the words relating to the spring season. Additionally, symbolism is scattered throughout like the use of the biblical paradise Eden.
Robert Frost once said in a poem, “Two roads diverged in a wood, and I - / I took the one less traveled by, / And that has made all the difference” (The Road Not Taken 18-20), and what he means by this is that taking the riskier or harder path can yield a better outcome. A different route that nobody takes is a change that potentially can be positive. This is demonstrated in the texts, The Metamorphosis by Franz Kafka and We grow accustomed to the Dark by Emily Dickinson because both show mostly positive changes in the characters. In The Metamorphosis by Franz Kafka, change is portrayed as mostly positive. The text states, “The office assistant was the boss’ man, spineless, and with no understanding” (Kafka 95).
As a child, the speaker did not truly recognize the beauty in nature. Returning to the Abbey, he has matured and has a deeper connection to nature. Wordsworth’s style the poem in blank verse that creates the flow of the poem to progress in the speaker’s change in mood. The portrayal of nature communicates the emotions of joy and bittersweet through imagery and diction. The poem encompasses the romantic movement from his experience at the abbey.
As the poem progresses, there are indents that indicate a new stanza and the focus shifts or topics. The blank verse enables Wordsworth to easily alter topics to describe his emotions, past memories, and the impact of nature. The poem is Wordsworth encounter of a location that he has not been to in awhile and the nature is a "tranquil" environment. The Wordsworth acknowledges how he has change from the last time he was there. As a child, he saw nature consist of waterfalls, mountains, trees, and sky.
