With the word whistle giving off the impression of a soft melody, and the word roar acting as the anchor of the phrase with its thundering implications, these words create an almost paradoxical situation. The two contrasting words establish an ominous atmosphere as well as giving off more abstract tones than usually found. In this single line of the poem, Tu Fu proves the point that silence can overwhelm someone just as much as clamor can by juxtaposing two contradictory words into the same idea. Tu Fu also uses diction to touch the reader’s emotions. There is not a single person that wants to think about dying only to become part of the earth, becoming nothing more than ash and dust, but “Jade Flower Palace” covers these thoughts head-on.
A beautiful portrait of the fair is built with Larson’s detailed depictions of “the buildings, waterways, and scenery” (Larson 274) within this spectacle. The clear pictures painted in the reader’s mind transports them to this wonder-filled attraction. However, more disturbing images are depicted in subtle ways, like the fact that Holmes “often smelled vaguely of chemicals” (Larson 46.) An image of horror conjures within the mind of the reader at this seemingly minuscule detail. The beauty and novelty of fair existing parallel to the grotesque nature of Holmes’ past times can only be excused as pure and unadulterated dramatic irony.
The American Dream or the American Nightmare? The American Dream is the goal that makes Americans work hard while simultaneously making American’s feel stress out and depressed. But what makes this popular dream a living nightmare? The American Dream is defined as working hard in life to achieve success in America without worry. This worry comes as a highlight to many Americans who struggle to make a living and feel as if the dream isn’t achievable in their perspective.
In the end, Piff tries to prove why the audience should care about his studies. He shares with the audience that the American Dream is unattainable because people are never satisfied with their money or morals. This appeals to the audience because Piff is relating his explanation to them. If a person is rich, they are mean, and if they are virtuous, they are poor. Americans never seem to be fulfilled, and they end up spending their lives trying to fill an endless desire.
How purposeful is this information with regard to the character 's psychological condition? What is important in analyzing and understanding the character? The chosen poem has confused audiences literally from the beginning. The complication with understanding of "The Road Not Taken" starts, appropriately enough, with its title. Revoke the poem 's conclusion: ″Two roads diverged in a wood, and I -/ I took the one less traveler by, / And that has made all the difference.″ these are not only the poem 's best – admitted lines, but the ones that gain what most readers take to be its central image: a lonely path that we take at tremendos risk, possibly for great reward.
I know how hard is it to find a decent job. Many occupations wont take applicants unless they have experience in a demanding and skilled environment. If a ready to work American went out to find a job, they would be out of luck because they don’t have the needed requirements and will never have them because they can’t get hired, in other words it’s a new ending loop of not having the requirements that will never be gained in the first place. After reading this novel, I also understood the true meaning of American poverty and what is it to be “poor”. The novel also revealed to me the difficulty of the less fortunate, and the free flowing lives of the people who didn’t get thrown in the never-ending loop of poverty and despair.
What Muir is saying is that someone who understands the value of nature would see a blank spot on a map and know that that piece is as important as any other. Another quote from Krakauer that describes nature us: “I wished to acquire the simplicity, native feelings, and virtues of savage life; to divest myself of the factitious habits, prejudices and imperfections of civilization; … and to find, amidst the solitude and grandeur of the western wilds, more correct views of human nature and of the true interests of man. The season of snows was preferred, that I might experience the pleasure of suffering, and the novelty of danger” (Estwick Evans, Krakauer 157). This shows that Krakauer sees the wild as a more correct and true place; a place away from civilization that deserves respect. Leopold has said something very similar to that, “Conservation is getting nowhere because it is incompatible with our Abrahamic concept of land.
Within the forest, the Puritan civilization ends as the darker forces of the shadow express themselves. (Maus 2005) In the story of “Young Goodman Brown”, the traveler carries a serpentine staff and towards the climax of the story, he makes a new stick by stripping twigs, wet with dew. However the moment his fingers touch them they withered and dried up. The traveler is as destructive as they come; he is feared by Puritans. The whole point of the Puritan’s journey into that forest, although each individual’s is different, is so they can get a glimpse of this traveler and what he is capable of and in turn realize how much they actually need God.
John Muir’s essay, The Calypso Borealis, and William Wordsworth’s poem, I wandered Lonely as a Cloud, are two wonderfully written works centered towards their love for nature. They were able to create vivd images in the reader’s head through their writing as well as emotional transitions. Both works, inspired by events in the 19th century, have their differences, however, their emotion and love for nature is the same and creates the same impact with the
Athletes tend to leave college early to go pro to earn money to make a living. Athletes that are not on scholarship are in the toughest of positions. These are players that have to pay for college, but have no time to make money for their college. In other words, they pay the college to make money for the college. Most athletes cannot play a college level sport and try to maintain a job.
