I am fond of the word choice that makes us as readers feel like we 're actually in the story experiencing the events that take place. The amount of verisimilitude in the story is intriguing because they are closely related to real life events. I admire these sections. The best part of the story is that the protagonist always ends up enduring the many hardships. Foreshadowing is prevalent throughout the beginning chapters
But, the stories are different because of the poetic structure, tame or wild animals, and simple of sophisticated diction. First, the author’s style is similar in “Predators” and “A Blessing”. Both of the poems have sound devices. For example, in “A Blessing” the author repeats the word “they” several times at the beginning of each line, “they ripple tensely, they can hardly contain their happiness” and “they bow shyly as wet swans. They love each other.” In “Predators” the author has an alliteration, “in the trust that many tales spun this tract long before I came.” The sound devices give more details and can help the poem flow better.
In the novel "The Great Gatsby," the author Fitzgerald pays very close attention to how he introduces and then exemplifies his characters. He has a pattern of introducing characters boldly, like Tom Buchanan with his lover Myrtle. Fitzgerald also pleases the senses by describing his characters fully, but enough to allow the reader to imagine their faces or clothes. Lastly, it is evident that Fitzgerald created very clear motives and attributes
The stories of the huge acts of courage in this book John McCain wrote were very inspiring and extremely amazing. They have inspired me to stand up for what I think is right and for the people I care about no matter what others think or what the consequences might be. Why Courage Matters: The Way To A Braver Life is an excellent book that everyone should read so they know the different ways they can be courageous and do what is right. I am very happy and very thankful that my parents had this book and suggested it as a book I should read. The individuals mentioned in this book are fantastic and their stories of courage are interesting to read and should inspire anyone who reads them.
Symbolism plays a very important role in all works of literature by giving it a deeper meaning that increases the emotion in the story. “The Gift of the Magi” by O. Henry and “The Scarlett Ibis” by James Hurst have various symbols weaved into the plot of the story which add to the connotation. The symbols in “The Gift of the Magi” include Della’s hair, Jim’s watch, and the color gold. Della’s hair and Jim’s watch both represent Della and Jim’s love for each other and that they are willing to go to any extent for each other. They would make any sacrifice for each other and as Della even says in the story, “Maybe the hair on my head are numbered… but nobody could ever count my love for you” (O. Henry 206).
As well, Shirley uses themes in the hole story to not forget the main topic in different sections, and to understand how important the values and the manners are. My opinion of “The Lottery” is that sometimes the writer can express herself with the readers using different literary devices on the story, and this helps to understand the main purpose of the story. The story was very entertaining and it has a great conclusion because we never expected that kind of end. She also used a lot of different characters to demonstrate the different perspectives that each part of the
Mary Oliver’s lyric poem, “The Journey”, is an engaging and uplifting depiction of the slow yet crucial and significant path to individuality. Written in succinct free-verse and strewn with images illustrating the obstacles and hardships that fill one’s life, along with images portraying the eventual surmount of these afflictions, “The Journey” provides readers with a sense of hope that one day they will find their voice, their identity. Through the use of compelling visual and metaphorical imagery, contradicting tones, repetition, and simple diction, Oliver leads the reader to conclude that the journey to individuality is both demanding and rewarding. Oliver begins the poem by immediately highlighting the eventual acknowledgement of the persona’s need to strive for individuality as well as the depth of the ongoing pressures and challenges that come with doing so, developing a dismal yet almost optimistic tone. In order to focus on the enduringly long time that it took before the persona accumulated the power to know “what you had to do,” Oliver uses the voice of the persona.
To begin with, in Mary Oliver's poem, "Journey" the author expresses the theme of being able to work well under pressure by the use of symbolism. For instance, Oliver uses symbols to convey a significance to her poem, as she states, "...the road full of fallen branches and stones"(S.1 V.21-22). Oliver uses "branches and stones" as a motif to try and help prove the theme by stating
This affects Oliver's tone throughout the poem as well as infuses the poem with motivation and inspiration. The speaker's tone gives the poem a peaceful and accepting mood/atmosphere. The use of the title “Wild Geese” gives the reader a first glimpse of what they will experience throughout the poem. The poet uses the
Eavan Boland cleverly uses language features, such as metaphors, similes, references to Greek mythology and symbolism, to connect to her personal experiences, seen in the poems Motherhood and Love, celebrating the durability of love, the joys of motherhood and the ordinary everyday. She also conveys the cold and disturbing truths about society, like the ignored presence of War and Violence in places like suburban areas. Boland’s poem ‘The War Horse’ depicts the ugly truth about the war and violence that most of us don’t wish to think about. The houses in this poem are seen to be domestic places, safe within a perfect little bubble from the outside world; the neighbours and Boland herself take comfort of “the subterfuge of [their] curtains”
In conclusion, Dr. King’s letter brought to me strong emotions of compassion to everybody facing life’s challenges. It also encourages readers to treat others with respect and not to bow down to violence. This letter was beautifully well put and marvelous to
And- and we let them dictate the terms of who they are and what their story is.” When she says that, she 's appealing to the mental want of being accepted and wanting to truly be loved by someone for being themselves, and it 's a thing that a lot of people want in life so it can be associated to almost everyone. It 's one of her many ways of using the strength of mental love to make the viewers feel more passionate towards the point that she is trying to make. Laverne Cox has a beautiful way of speaking and appealing to the emotional and logical thinking of the human brain, she does it by talking about the things that people like to dance around and ignore, she as well does it in an exciting, powerful, and moving way. She is an experienced woman who was trying to get a message across to the viewers, that trans is
