Love is everywhere, it drives people and it creates people. It is represented through forms of art and media. It is an emotion every human is dependant on and plays a role in every person’s life. Love is the centre of acts of passion yet what leads many people into self-destruction and denial. ‘I Wanna Be Yours’ by john cooper Clark portrays the emotive experience of being in love.
“The feeling of guilt is your conscience calling your attention to the higher road, and your heart wishing you had taken it.” The poem “I Can Stand Him no Longer” by Raphael Dumas and “The Tell-Tale Heart” by Edgar Allan Poe are pieces of literature that develop the thematic topic of guilt using literary devices such as metaphors, connotations, similes and etc. Both stories are about a person who commits a deed that he is later guilty of doing. In “The Tell-Tale Heart”, a man commits a murder of an old neighbor and tries to hide the crime. However, he later finds himself guilty of doing so and accepts his crime in front of the police.
The fountains mingle with the river And the rivers with the ocean, The winds of heaven mix for ever With a sweet emotion; Nothing in the world is single; All things by a law divine In one spirit meet and mingle. Why not I with thine?— 
Poetry is an effective means used to convey a variety of emotions, from grief, to love, to empathy. This form of text relies heavily on imagery and comparison to inflict the reader with the associated feelings. As such, is displayed within Stephen Dunn 's, aptly named poem, Empathy. Quite ironically, Dunn implores strong diction to string along his cohesive plot of a man seeing the world in an emphatic light. The text starts off by establishing the military background of the main protagonist, as he awaits a call from his lover in a hotel room.
In the epitaph from Minerva Jones the village poetess appears to be unattractive but yet still gets ravished by a man who hunted her down. She later ends up enceinte with the ravisher 's baby and peregrinates to a medico designated Dr. Meyers and becomes dispirited. She expresses her woebegoneness by the cessation of the poem where she verbalizes, "I hungered so for love! I hungered so for life!" The poetess must 've done something to get ravished or the ravisher himself was either sexually
“The White City” written by Claude McKay depicts the issues and conflicts based in the 1920s and 30s regarding race. Although slavery had ended in 1865 there was still a sense of tension between the African American and Caucasian American peoples during the 20th century. The piece itself is justified, triumphant, and spiteful, in the point of view of the African American civilian during the beginning of segregation in the 1920s. The rebellion and pride found between both African Americans and Caucasian Americans began to dramatically clash after the first World War.
Desire-a strong feeling of wanting to have something or wishing for something to happen. Although it is a powerful feeling, desire can disappear, as soon as the want is fulfilled. Desire is created by the barrier, preventing one from reaching his or her destination. In both of these poems, “I had been hungry all these years” by Emily Dickinson, and “The Lighted Window” by Sara Teasdale, the theme of desire is shown. Dickinson and Teasdale both suggest that desire is no longer present once it is fulfilled, and that what is desired can be changed over time.
“Love is when the other person 's happiness is more important than your own”-H Jackson Brown Jr. This idea exhibits the importance you give towards someone’s love is more necessary than yours.

Reflective Statement: Paradise of the Blind Before the Interactive Oral, I did not fully understand Vietnamese culture and familial roles. I did not know why women in Duong Thu Huong’s novel, Paradise of the Blind, would bend to the will of the men in their lives.

This shows that this act could reveal the answers to all the world 's great mysteries-or somewhat explain the weird acts that are happening in Iping. The opening and shutting of the doors go along with the revelations of Griffin 's invisibility. When his door breaks down in the London house, this forces Griffin out of his own research room and directly into the streets. While in Iping, Griffin has his first physical contact with another person. This results in Cuss 's running out of his room while leaving the door behind him wide "open behind him."
