Relationships are the core of everything we do in life. We love someone, so we do something for them; we value someone 's opinion, so we respect them; we dislike someone, so we avoid them. Relationships cause people to act on their emotions which impact how and why they do the things they do. Ernest Hemingway’s short story “Hills Like White Elephants” is about a couple trying to come to a conclusion on a delicate matter. While the man strongly promotes his opinion the girl is hesitant but wants to do whatever will make him happy.
The poem is a slow tempo poem wanting the reader to take in all of the information at once. While doing this she tries to bring up past memories that maybe the reader may have relating to the poem. This is very clear in the poem “Flowers remembered their colors and trees / were frothy and the hospital was / behind us now, its brick indifference / forgotten by our car mirrors” (“Sight”, 4-8). That section helps represent the poems tone, being smooth and easy to read while being very descriptive. While showing imagery to help the reader better understand what she is trying to say in her poem.
*INTRO* *BLACK ROOK IN RAINY WEATHER* “Black Rook in Rainy Weather” is focused on her feelings and thoughts, her lack of inspiration – although it appears as if she is writing about the outside world. She uses her nearby surroundings as a metaphor for her feelings and ideas. Plath feels empty and longs for nature and her mundane surroundings to ‘speak’ to her, to provide her with inspiration for her poetry “A minor light may still lean incandescent out of kitchen table or chair as if a celestial burning took possession of the most obtuse objects now and then…” She is in a state of desperation, and describes her life as a “season of fatigue” with “brief respites from fear of total neutrality.” The poem is suffused with her fear of failing.
Her habits from when she was younger, such as reading and thinking backwards, can directly relate to her disability and is seen as her way of handling how it feels to be so different from those around her. Not only does Adah have her own unique ways of thinking, but also she is very connected to poetry. She uses it often to connect her problems to other people, since she cannot always relate to those in her family. “Because I could not stop for death, He kindly stopped for me,” (Kingsolver 365).

When he arrived, Daisy greeted him be saying, “‘I’m p-paralyzed with happiness.’” Fitzgerald chooses this phrase for her first words to show that Daisy has a loving heart, but is insecure to show it because she doesn’t want to be hurt. By stuttering the paralyzed, it shows that she is somewhat hesitant when it comes to connecting with people. Also, the pairing of paralyzed and happiness shows that Daisy tries to love people but holds back to an extent. One reason she is hesitant to love people is because she loves Tom, but he also has a mistress that she knows about. This can explain why she is hesitant to love people because she has been hurt before while loving
This incident shows the reader that she wants to be taken seriously by her colleagues. It also displays that Hilly deeply treasures her reputation because of her reaction towards the situation. On the other hand, Aunt Alexandra has also shown the reader signs that she values her family’s reputation. In chapter 23 of To Kill a Mockingbird, Aunt Alexandra did not allow Scout to play with Walter Cunningham because of his poor background. She said, “Because-he-is-trash, that’s why you can’t play with him.
In Grapes of Wrath it seems that the women look on silently, trying to read their husband’s expression while the man considers the loss. Ma Joad isn’t the type to sit back when the family is in trouble. Her great compassion for everyone in her family greatly contrasts Mama Elena’s. Her main concern throughout the novel is her concern for her family’s happiness, and she controls it, as best she can, through tough
Prynne sees Pearl as being exactly that. To her mother, Pearl is uncooperative even when she’s in a good mood, and is cold more that she is loving, but to counteract these things, she kisses Prynne’s cheek, and Prynne cannot help but absolutely adore Pearl, just because she is who she is. Lastly, Hawthorne compares the sunshine, to the way Hester Prynne feels about her social status. Because of the sin Prynne had committed, she was shunned by her community and cast away. While walking with Pearl through the woods, Prynne notices the sun’s behavior, almost as if it is “running away from her”.
It is human nature for someone to want to be around other people, and everyone has the common need to be loved, no matter who they are. However, isolation and loneliness are two circumstances that can prevent this ordinary desire. The reality of being apart from society can cause a person to think and act in a different way than others would.
