Both the poem “Warren Pryor” by Alden Nowlan and the short story “Harrison Bergeron” by Kurt Vonnegut, Jr express a depressing tone. “Warren Pryor” is about a son who chooses a career that he dislikes in order to please his parents. “Harrison Bergeron” is about a dystopian society where excellence in any way is considered a disadvantage and inequality for others. In both texts, the protagonists all face the barrier of having their nature being stifled; however, the speaker in the poem chooses not to fight back for himself, while the majority in the short story is not even able to realize the barrier that they face.

He also references biblical allusion to create a metaphor between the positive reception of their petitions and the kiss which Judas gave to Jesus before his betrayal.

The ground that is prepared to receive seed is called the “good ground” (v23). So then when the modern day worship leader leads the congregation into praise and worship, they create an atmosphere for the congregation to prepare their heart (their ground) for the Word of God (the seed). This is why it’s important for the praise and worship team to sing songs that prepare the people’s heart for the

But none of this meant that Strang was illiterate or simple. Although his teachers "not unfrequently turned me off with little or no attention, as though I was too stupid to learn and too dull to feel neglect," Strang recalled that he spent "long weary days ... upon the floor, thinking, thinking, thinking ... my mind wandered over fields that old men shrink from, seeking rest and finding none till darkness gathered thick around and I burst into tears."

The Role of Art in “The Fall of the House of Usher Art can be expressed within writing pieces, poems and short stories in various types of forms. Edgar Allen Poe uses music as a form of art to help the main character Roderick try to cope with his unstable state of mind.

The Lamb and The Tyger: The Use of Contrast to Develop an Idea In William Blake's two short poems "The Lamb" and "The Tyger", Blake uses the stark contrast in imagery, theme and tone between the two complimentary poems to comment about Christianity and god in the industrial age. “The lamb” and “The Tyger” are poems engraved in Blake’s book Songs of Innocence and Experience (cite Herbert ). Blake uses the two poems to demonstrate the contradiction between the church view on the world and the other more realistic and experienced view. “The Lamb” is a representation of the church view on the world and how god created such a beautiful creature like the lamb. On the other hand, “The Tyger” is a representation of the new industrialized world that Blake does not want us to ignore.
