'What can loss of sight means? Physically and Imaginary. What can darkness mean besides being in the night, the dark without light? “We Grow Accustomed to the Dark” and “Before I Got My Eye Put Out” these two poems that is written by Emily Dickinson about sight and darkness, but it is not only about sight and dark, it has different meaning beside losing your sight or just about darkness. Yes, Dickinson’s poem is not just about losing of sight or darkness, it also is telling you different things.
This poem illustrates traits of aspiration. At the beginning of the poem, Dickinson has a darker tone. She discloses that people adjust to the dark. Literally, our eyes adjust to different shades of light, but also figuratively. What she proposes in lines 7-8, where she says “Then - fit our Vision to the Dark / And meet the Road- erect” (7-8), is that the darkness is the unknown and the road is our future.
Resilience, it’s the ability to return to it’s original state even after being pulled, stretched, pressed, or bent. If you’re resilient it means you’re adaptable and tend to “bounce back” after certain horrific situations. In books like Macbeth and Lord of the Flies, they showcase the ideas of how they see resilience in their own perspectives. We might as well have even experienced something in our lives that should be classified as traumatic but because we’re strong, we handled the situation well and continue to live past it. The Lord of the Flies, in my opinion, is a pretty messed up book now that you think about it.
The diction and tone in Woolf’s essay affects her message as it was melancholy and calm. The diction was clear and understandable to ensure that the audience could understand her message, rather than try and decipher large incoherent words. Woolf also uses many words with negative connotations, but takes a neutral attitude to the subject. At the beginning of the essay Woolf 's tone is very hopeful, but as the essay progresses it turns dark and somber. At the beginning Woolf used phrasing such as “ Pleasant morning” (Woolf 5) and “enormous energy of the world”(Woolf 24) .
Next, the second example is “He strained his eyes in the direction from which the reports had come, but it was like trying to see through a blanket.” This simile is comparing seeing through a blanket to trying to see where the noise came from. The author likely used this simile to better explain to the reader that the scene was very dark. In conclusion, these are the reasons why Richard Connell’s short story “The Most Dangerous Game” makes effective use of literary devices. “The Most Dangerous Game” makes effective use of both irony and similes. Irony helped develop General Zaroff’s character and teach the reader a lesson.
When I started, it was dark, there were shapes and things but nothing was clear. It was clear and I could see. It was like being born” (185). The story behind the cat’s name ‘Whittington’ is told as a reward and encouragement for Ben. It is told in an interesting way, as a story within the main story.
At that point he began to see his troubles as a psycho-scientific study rather than a meaningless misery. His numerous problems ceased to be an issue to me but it found it as an interesting case study. He could see a little light in the darkness the moment he saw a cause to suffer. Finding meaning in our suffering helps to present one’s self with dignity even in great pain. The moment we create a lucid understanding of why our suffering is important to our greater disposition and justification, we begin to see meaning in our suffering and then life will begin to make more sense.
I will be focusing my attention on various types of normality different characters in this novel pursue. Since normality is a polysemic word which assumes different connotations depending on the views and opinions of each person; it is without a doubt “a mere context dependent social construct (Freud, 333)” . In essence, what is normal for someone may not be normal for someone else. For this reason, it is easier to define what is not normal than what is. Not-normal means different and although being different is not always a bad thing, it usually has negative connotations, as we will see happening in Cloisterham; the town in which Dickens situated his story.
A moving piece written by Jane Kenyon titled as, “Let Evening Come” expresses what the main essence of life is, and the importance of now. What struck me the most in her beautifully written piece was in the last stanza of her poem where she states, “Let it come, as it will, and don't be afraid. God does not leave us comfortless, so let evening come” (1252). Generally, most people would associate evening into darkness or something that is terrifying. However in that passage from her poem, it asserts that there is no need to be afraid with the darkness that comes in our way because truly there is something beautiful beyond that.
Sweet soft serenades seem so warm and inviting, but once evil gets ahold of it darkness is always in the shadows. Odysseus experienced this first hand, and survived.

Odysseus plays the protagonist in the story.
