Machan used an inverted sentence, “up pops this frog”(5), to show that Hazel doesn’t understand how the frog got there. She is mystified by the frog. On the next line though, she says, “musta come from the sewer”(6). When she realizes this, she is repulsed by it. After that, she tries to flush it, and the frog offers to make her a princess, and at first she might of considered it when she says “me a princess”(13), however, Hazel quickly remembers that she is happy not being a princess.
In his painting, Fuseli sought to capture arguably the most comedic moment in the play, which occurs when Titania awakens and falls in love with the donkey-headed Bottom. He does not simply represent the scene as Shakespeare portrays it in his words; instead, Fuseli interprets it, sometimes taking the figurative and making it literal and other times exaggerating Shakespeare’s portrayal of the beautiful Titania falling for the ludicrous Nick
Gatsby’s Tragedy: Falling for a Minx The Great Gatsby, like the Great Houdini, is an illusionist. Similar to the Great Houdini, the Great Gatsby has a tremendous rise to fame and an outrageous reputation. Jay Gatsby's tragic flaw does not seem horrendous at first when compared to Willy Loman, Macbeth, and other tragic characters in literature, but his love for Daisy shows that the power of love outranks all other flaws. During Gatsby's youth, he met a girl named Daisy, who he immediately fell for. Unfortunately, he had to leave Daisy to go to war.
And thou and Romeo press one heavy bier.” (III.ii.60-61) In Act 3, Scene 3 Romeo much rather be dead than be banished and Friar Lawrence explains how ungrateful he is to be alive and that Juliet still loves him. Similarly, in Act 4, Scene 3 where Juliet is about to take the sleeping potion, she expresses how she would not mind if the potion killed her or caused her to go insane, but if she was alive and well she kill herself immediately. Doubleness is also part of theme in the story. Doubleness is deception or dissimulation. When Mercutio gets stabbed by Tybalt he says “Ay, ay, a scratch; marry ‘tis enough/ Where is my page?
Both Saira Shah and Dillard portrays their “childish attitude” • For Dillard’s story, she called the chaser as her hero when he caught them because she imagined and felt like they were in a game and the chaser had won the game. • For Saira Shah’s story, she imagines that she is in a “fairy tale” where there will be a happy ending (lives in her original culture) by marrying a guy to live happily ever after like most of the fairy tales. 4. Different reaction of the characters that change the whole situation/reactions of Saira Shah and Dillard • In Dillard’s essay, the antagonizing redheaded guy acts in expected way by advising both of the child by breaking the rules (except in the term of chase) –it is adult’s responsibility to advise the children who acts in social unacceptable way. • While, in Saira Shah’s essay, the fiancé reacts in a way that readers would not expect a conservative Muslim in an arrange marriage match to react—her future husband flirts with her through phone where is unacceptable in the Afghani-Pakistani
Birthmarks could be like magic stones that can grant wishes. In the story (The Birthmark) Aylmer who is described as a brilliant scientist his wife after a couple days of their marriage has she ever thought about removing the birthmark on her cheek. Aylmer immediately upsets his beautiful wife by saying “dearest Georgiana, you came so nearly perfect from the hand of Nature that this slightest possible defect, which we hesitate whether to term a defect or a beauty, shocks me, as being the visible mark of earthly imperfection”(Hawthorne 340). Georgiana sees the mark as a charm. She embraces the imperfections and blemishes.
Moreover the shirts can also represent how a life with Gatsby would be “colorful” and full of life, while Tom just sucks the life and color out of Daisy. Again, the scene where Daisy rethinks her engagement and potential marriage with Tom is an excellent example which demonstrates that Daisy is indecisive when it comes to Gatsby. Even though she is in a drunken state at the time, Daisy still feels that happiness with Gatsby would win over a lifetime of wealth with Tom. Lastly, Nick simply states, “Their eyes met, and they stared together at each other, alone in space. With an effort she glanced down at the table.
Mercutio here expresses his disapproval towards love in the famous Queen Mab speech. He compares love to a wish which originates from dreams, these dreams are visited by the queen of the fairies Mab. In this speech Mercutio shows he is quick-witted and headstrong. He also used a lot of puns, like when Romeo tells him he is talking about nothing.
However, in the 17th and 18th century, not all was perfect. Fairy tales were horrific - illustrating gory details of incest, murder and cannibalism. According to The Guardian online newspaper, fairy tales exposed the dangers of the real world with lessons to be very courageous and careful.Recently, there have been many arguments on whether ‘happily ever afters’ are realistically possible, considering the gender stereotypes, patriarchal society and gruesome stories expressed in the original fairy tales. Therefore, to what extent have fairy tales had a positive impact on children when examined through a gender and psychological lens? Fairy tales that paint either a ‘rosier than reality’ picture or
The story is rather scary a theme that the author considers as a great way of expressing both the social and personal anxieties over war, bullies, parents, children, drugs, and sex. On the other hand, “Good Man is Hard to Find” is a somewhat cynical tale that is uncompromising especially in the way that it ensures effective bringing out of the manipulative characteristics of humans alongside pettiness. Both stories tend to have main characters having similar characteristics, and their dominant theme is death. The paper thus intends on looking at how the theme of death is brought out in both stories using the main characters. Edgar’s story tends to feature some of the significant issues that include death, love and plain horror.
