“A cool breeze came up behind us, sending shivers along the spines of the mesquite trees.” The text contains elements of the unconscious process of shivering and allows Taylor to project her inner feelings onto the landscape. The language mirrors how Taylor’s mind works and shows this by sending “shivers along the spines of the mesquite trees” as well as up her own spine, almost personifying the trees. Kingsolver’s descriptions of the natural landscape, shows her consciousness of the environment.
Mary Oliver, born in 1935, is most well known for her descriptions of the natural world and how that world of simplicity relates to the complexity of humanity. Her poem, “Flare”, is no different, as it illustrates the relationship between human emotions; such as the feeling of nostalgia, and the natural world. “Flare” is featured in her book published in 2000, The Leaf and The Cloud: A Poem. At the time of writing the book, Oliver was 65 years old, living with her partner Molly Cook in Provincetown, Massachusetts. Oliver is said to have based most of her poetry on her experience living in Provincetown and has found inspiration from walks by the water near her house.

Before the performance started, speakers played songs about women, by women. Kelly Clarkson declared “what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger,” Cyndi Lauper reminded the audience that “girls just want to have fun,” and other, similar songs introduced the female empowerment and female-driven themes throughout the play. Within the production, characters played songs to convey their moods, such as when Michaela turned on Adele, music about heartbreak, while she was upset with her husband, and when Devon played “Everybody Hurts,” a song about the universal nature of emotional pain, when she satirized empathy for Michaela, who Devon believed could have no real problems due to her extreme wealth. These were the only uses of music, as no further soundtrack or orchestra was used during the production to indicate mood not acknowledged or controlled by the
This simile reveals the strong individual Harrison can unleash. After going through the transition and “smashing” his handicaps, Harrison without any demeanor, overcomes and quickly adapts to the new lifestyle. He proposes to be followed, and “swaying like a willow” a ballerina rises. As the simile intends, the ballerina accepts Harrison’s new, overconfident, yet graceful mood.

Another, one I loved was “Kakinomoto no Hhitiomaro” because with its short lines it gives off a strong feeling of loneliness, for example, in the last line, it tells the readers that as the boat fades away so does the heart meaning someone has left
“The charm of the hour lay in its approaching dimness, the low-gliding and pale-beaming sun” reveals the time of day through a detailed portrayal of the sun and how it appeared to Jane. Moreover, “in a lane noted for wild roses in summer, for nuts and blackberries in autumn, and even now possessing a few coral treasures in hips and haws” illustrates where Jane is walking through and provides contrast of the place throughout the seasons. Brontë’s use of detailed descriptions recreates the scene and use of long sentences gives the reader time to visualize and experience Jane’s walk. The imagery establishes the setting and mood that in conjunction with the first-person point of view provide an intimate perspective for the reader.
During the prom scene, the camera revolves around Carrie and Tommy slowly as they are dancing to give off a romantic state. Suddenly the motion accelerates faster, almost out of control to hint that something bad is brewing. When Carrie goes to accept Prom Queen, the shot becomes slow motion to build suspense until they drench her in pig’s blood. This later shifts to Carrie visible on only one side of the frame to suggest the instantaneous effects of Carrie’s wrath. In the first frame, the audience is able to witness Carrie’s sharp head turns, widening of eyes and gazes as she sets her sights on a tormentor.
In the opening passage, I adore how the author made the setting a more peaceful scenario to take away all the darkness that occurred in the previous two chapters. An example would be, “I started appreciating Mother Nature, what she’d done with the world.” (Monk Kidd 57). This passage reminded me of my grandmother because she loves and admires nature. Nature’s creations leave her in awe just like Lily.
