In the fifth paragraph, Dillard describes Rahm’s appearance and juxtaposes that to vivid imagery. At the start of the show, Dillard was, “Idly paying...attention,” when she saw a “medium-sized, rugged man, dressed in brown leather, all begoggled…” who happened to be David Rahm. These mundane details describe Rahm as an average, ordinary man, who great things were not expected. By using mundane details, audience members understand how Dillard did not pay any extra attention to Rahm because he appeared to be average. However, once Rahm was in the plane, his actions demanded her attention.

Even though a lot of people consider William Golding a great British novelist and author, he has also written novels which illustrate a variety of life themes. As the gap between the date of publication of a work and the current date increases, the irrelevance of the novel to present society also arises. William Golding served in the British Navy during World War ll. During the war, he managed to see how people were able to cause violence, understanding that a human being can be shaped by savagery. Referring to the novel, at the beginning, a plane transporting British boys is shot down, the boys exit the wreckage of the plane and understand that they are on a deserted island, far from society.

Perhaps it is that the Golden Gate Bridge provides a stark juxtaposition of the beauty that humans can create during their lives with the deliberate destruction of human life. Perhaps the reason for the bridge is more simple – as the friend of one jumper put it, “maybe he just wanted to fly one time.” There is a lot to be learned from Steel’s film.

The depiction of Gatsby’s character in The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald has a big impact on the novel and through understanding his character the context and meaning of the novel become clear. Gatsby’s personality represents many of the extremes of American life and his rise and fall from fame and success show the unattainable aspect of the what was thought to be the achievable American dream. Gatsby’s true beginnings and origins begin as a mystery to narrator Nick Carraway and Nick first encounters his reputation before he actually meets Gatsby. This delayed introduction to Gatsby’s personality helps create the mystery and the impression that Gatsby is more than just a man. When Nick finally meets him at one of his parties he is surprised and doesn’t recognize him from the descriptions provided by the other people at the party “‘and this man Gatsby sent over his chauffeur with an invitation.’ For a moment he looked at me as if he failed to understand” (Fitzgerald 48).

Nicole Hero Mrs. Davis Cultural Foundations 23 December 2015 Symbolism in Lord of the Flies In the adventurous novel Lord of the Flies by William Golding, symbolism is used throughout the whole book.
