The messy kitchen symbolizes Mrs. Wrights incomplete, empty life. When most kitchen are the place you come home to and feel warmed. Instead, Minnie's is dirty and unkempt. The dead bird in the the play is one of the main symbols. The deceased bird explains the motivation behind Minnie's crime but also describes the way Mr. Wright abused his wife.
The common house fly is a pest all over the world. The adult has the fourth wing vein sharply angled and four lengthwise dark stripes on the top of the thorax. Its face has two velvety stripes, which are silver above and gold below(Dame et al., 2002). The female fly has a much wider space between the eyes than the male. The house fly is often confused with the face fly, which also infests structures.
I will be focusing on the quote “All the weak ones were left here” Which represents the great depression and how America was left behind just like the characters in the novella. So as I progress through the essay you will learn in detail events of the Great Depression and how that links with the novella also how prejudice and discrimination overpowers the novella. “The worst thing about that kind of prejudice... is that while you feel hurt and angry and all the rest of it, it feeds you self-doubt. You start thinking, perhaps I am not good enough.” Perhaps in America prejudice and discrimination is acceptable just like John Steinbeck represents in the novella. The characters represent a daily life person.
Tone is the most important for a reader to understand. It can be contradicting in many different ways. An example of a contradicting tone is in the novel, The Great Gatsby by F.Scott Fitzgerald as he establishes a foreboding, gloomy and wistful tone through the setting, Valley of the Ashes and, main characters Gatsby and Nick. Despite the perception of the “Roaring 20’s” as a time of glamour and prosperity, Fitzgerald establishes a gloomy tone through his portrayal of the barren, ashen landscape, presided over by a neglected billboard. Fitzgerald’s ironic use of the natural imagery of the farm and garden establish this setting as a dead, depressing place.
Bowling will set up an idea in one line, then take it in an entirely new direction in the next. The description of “scarecrow of iron” (6) is simple enough; however, the addition of “with its head lopped off, dangling, waiting / for some kid to smash it in the face” (7-8) takes it in an entirely new and disturbing direction. In the fourth layer, muddy potato fields are compared to the battlefields of Passchendaele, an extremely costly battle in World War One. This comparison is unexpected, and seems to make light of a serious subject. In the next line, however, he changes direction again, saying that the two are so alike that “they weren’t alike at all” (13).
Eventually Gregor begins “[battering the door] shut with the cane” (Kafka 1214). The battered door is a symbol of isolation form the outside world and his family. Kafka’s novella is a critique of modern times and bring issues like alienation to the eyes of the reader. Kafka critiques the modern ideals and how we get caught up in our ways of life. The story dives right in when the protagonist Gregor Samsa transforms into a huge cockroach.
In her text, “Cognition, Convention and Certainty,” Patricia Bizzell describes the writing process through both inner-directed and outer-directed theories in order to illustrate that the writing process is infirmed by both student’s natural thought processes and their discourse community She uses her text to explain both theories, and to argue for the implementation of a new pedagogy focused on discourse analysis.First, Bizzell introduces the inner –directed theory, which seeks to discover the writing processes through the universal and fundamental structure of language. Conversely, she explains that the outer-directed theory instead argues that the individual’s discourse community does not teach a generalized form of language but rather the
The characters must be relatable to evoke sympathy from readers and must have a unique storyline. No one will feel attached to a character that has a plain, boring story. Second, the book must have an intriguing plot and/or plot twists. To keep readers engaged, a novel must have good or interesting plot. A key element of this is having plot twists or unexpected turns to keep readers guessing or to keep them “in to” the book.
This is similar to Fahrenheit 451 because people are disrespecting literature, and not appreciating it’s value. This is shown when the characters in this novel speak out against a concept they know nothing about. Therefore, the literary terms an author uses can make an immense impact to the connections the reader makes to a novel, and help to shape a theme that is found throughout
Without this physical contact there is a need to compensate for the emotions normally exchanged through tone of voice and body language. Text messages integrate a unique set of abbreviations and “textisms” that can be interpreted subconsciously as emotions, which allows texting to fulfill the role of a new language apart from face-to-face communication. While evaluating the abbreviation LOL, John McWhorter, an associate professor of English and comparative literature at Columbia University, states, “Instead of having a literal meaning, it does something — conveying an attitude — just like the -ed ending coveys past tense rather than ‘meaning’ anything.” Such abbreviations take on multiple roles in the new texting language that allow the communication of emotions rather than only the literal meanings of the words. This conceptual idea is similar to the connotation and denotation of words, where a single word can have a literal meaning, but, when used in certain situations, can have a completely different meaning that is sometimes not related to the dictionary definition of the word. McWhorter demonstrates this when he states, “Jocelyn texts ‘Where have you been?’ and Annabelle texts back ‘LOL at the library studying for two hours.’ LOL signals basic empathy between texters, easing tension and creating a sense of equality.” As McWhorter shows, LOL can convey attitude and emotion rather than just meaning “laughing out loud.” The ability of these abbreviations to take on multiple roles allows people to express themselves through the subconscious interpretations of text messages, even without being able to see another’s body language or interpret their tone of voice as traditional face-to-face
