Richard Wilbur’s “Death Of A Toad” successfully utilizes imagery, diction, and structure to describe the thoughts of the narrator who witnesses a toad’s death and begins to question life’s purpose for all creatures. The narrator describes the garden in which the toad spends its last moments of life with vivid and descriptive imagery to highlight the beauty of nature and signify the idea that even as life ends it is surrounded by more life. The lines, “the garden verge, and sanctuaried him, under the cineraria leaves, in the shade of the ashen and heartshaped leaves,” describe a beautiful sanctuary in which the toad will be able to take his last breath. When one life ends all other life goes on.
In Sonnet 16, written by Elizabeth Barrett Browning, the speaker is controlled by emotions and sees herself lowly, while her beloved is noble and is viewed as a worthier person. Through this sonnet, Browning shows that love has immense power. Throughout the poem, Elizabeth uses vivid images and detailed wording to show herself as a lowly, sad human and to show her lover like a higher being. From the first line to the seventh line of Sonnet 16, Elizabeth describes the lover like royalty, calling him “more noble and like a king” that “has” purple cloth (purple was commonly worn by the higher-ups); if he were to conquer her heart, it would make the lover “as lordly …/In lifting upward”.

Although the protagonists in “Wolf” and “Werewolf” bear harsh and cruel environments, the differences in their self esteem and reactions to certain difficulties are conflicting.
Barchou would remember them as these two as cowardice and had no fight left in them. These statements contradict many of his earlier encounters with how the author or other Algerians might have depicted the women and their mistreatment. On one hand, Barchou would have described the scene as a means to slander the women for their horrific act against another human being. While on the other the author along with the other Algerians saw them as Heroines and was praised for their courage.
In “furs, Rivers and black Robe” it refutes the film’s deception of life in the great Lakers region.

Vicki Hearne published Animal Happiness in 1994. The excerpt provided focuses specifically on her perspective with regards to Ludwig Wittgenstein’s argument on lions and language and a troupe of performing orangutans. Hearne’s main point in the first section titled “Wittgenstein’s Lion” is that Wittgenstein’s belief that lions do not have language is false.
