Bradbury uses figurative language by saying, “The house was an altar with ten thousand attendants, big, small, servicing, attending, in choirs. But the gods had gone away, and the ritual of the religion continued senselessly, uselessly.” This excerpt from the story shows isolation can lead to someone not accepting change or problems in the world around them because the robots are thought of as human in this story, and even though the real humans are gone, the robots don’t change how they are or how they act or what they
‘100 $Bill’ and ‘Young and Beautiful’ both spoke for Gatsby strongly as they were played in a manner to present him in separate lights and represented both his hopes and his fears. His disregard for riches is easily expressed in the song 100 $ Bill as he pays no attention to the amount he spends in the secret bar or on his extravagant parties, it also shows how he takes business as a pastime not a necessity. However the song Young and Beautiful, brings up how he wants Daisy to love him even when he doesn’t have the riches anymore, which is both a hope and a fear as he is unsure of how far she will allow their ‘affair’ to go. The song also brings up bringing her love to heaven with her, which can be said for Gatsby but does Daisy really want to go with him. He seems to bypasses her wants there as well as in the confessing of who Daisy really loves and we never see him ask her.
Illusions are created by characters to hide different aspects of their lives. The outcome of Gatsby’s illusion is miserable in a way that he thinks Daisy still loves him instead of Tom. Gatsby was the main illusionist in The Great Gatsby, he mainly thought he could change the past. Fitzgerald makes sure the audience notices these illusions of Gatsby, by describing them through feelings. Gatsby is a man of loyalty that became useless due to the power of

The king begins to fear that Prince Hal’s mirroring of Richard II could cause their downfall. When speaking about Richard II, King Henry states, “That, being swallowed daily by men’s eyes, they surfeited with honey and began To loathe the taste of sweetness, where more than a little is by too much” (3.2 70-74). In short, this quote is a metaphor for Richard II’s presence. When Richard II became King, his presence was like honey in the sense that it was a special treat because the public rarely saw him. Overtime, as Richard II showed his presence much more often, people grew tired of it.

When given the chance to change their life, people take advantage of that and abuse it. Technology has taken over our lives and it could take our sanity if we let it.

While I read the article about Tyler Perry by Crunk Feminist Collection, I totally disagreed with the overall viewpoint. Tyler Perry is an amazing actor, comedian, and director. I believe that Tyler Perry is good at what he does. For those that know of Tyler Perry background, there would be some type of understanding for his movies. I don’t believe Perry hates black women.
1. The point I find to be the most crucial to the plot in Chapter 1 is the Buchanan’s blatant unhappiness. Tom is obviously unhappy in his married life because, not only is he restless in the sense that he moves frequently, but he also is having an open affair. Daisy is also obviously unhappy because of the way she so readily opened up to Nick, whom she did not know well despite their familial relation, and in the way she interacted with Tom. Even if I had not read this story before, I would have picked up on the fact that this singular point would be a catalyst to the rest of the plot.
“Jealous” by Nick Jonas shows Holden’s feelings for Jane Gallagher and how easily he gets jealous. Holden doesn’t like many people, but those that he does he hold on tight to. Jane is a childhood friend that Holden is fond of. Holden lays down thinking, “It just drove me stark staring mad when I thought about her and Stradlater parked somewhere in that fat-assed Ed Banky’s car. Every time I thought about it, I felt like jumping out the window” (Salinger 48).
In The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald, it has many moments that can be argued that Nick can be displeased with the people he surrounds himself with. Nick even states that Gatsby stands for everything he hates and despises about the rich he corresponds with but yet by the end Gatsby is the only one that Nick appreciates on some level. With an almost fleeting passage in The Great Gatsby though it clearly show that Gatsby had a glamor that secreted from him that Nick idolized but was slowly being squandered as he had ‘talked with him perhaps six times in the past month and found, to my disappointment, that he had little to say. ’(pg 64) Nick then goes on to say that Gatsby started to lose the glamour that built up after the parties, especially the rumors he was told about how Gatsby came into his money.
This key passage can strike the reader because it is an interesting metaphor. It stood out because Howard related to himself and others as lighting bugs, or fireflies. Although in this passage Howard said that he gives “the cheery red signal”, it is rather odd because fireflies glow yellow and not red. This could mean that his mood has changed from happy, carefree person to now a depressed soul that holds much guilt and aggression towards himself, which is a character change for Howard. This relates back to the previous key passage, since that turning point changed for the rest of the story, where this change is noticable in this passage.
