At one point, main character Sal Paradise states that “the bug was on me again, and the bug’s name was Dean Moriarty” (page 115). Kerouac’s use of diction and imagery are heightened by the use of the word “bug”. If Dean is truly like a bug, then he must always be flying, buzzing, and darting around in a manner similar to many familiar bugs. Mosquitoes and flies are perceived as irritating and annoying, a perception Kerouac here places on Dean as well. He and bugs alike always seem to be in a rush, never waiting, and always on the move.
How does she give them this enormous impact on our own feelings? She mainly uses techniques such as the presence of spider, rhythm of sentences, vocabulary and repetition, or links to Mr.Kipps’ senses, combined with foreshadowing, imagery and finally flashbacks, to help us understand Arthur Kipps’ state of mind At the beginning of this extract, we see that Arthur Kipps is afraid of this rocking sound, as at the beginning of the paragraph, we can read that he “switches on every light he could find as he went”. But even being afraid, he knows that he must retain control of himself. In this part, Spider helps him being calm, and vice versa: “I must retain control of myself, rather as a mother will feel obliged to put a brave face in order to calm her frightened child.” Here, the “frightened child” is in fact Spider, who by being pet and soothed calmed him. At the end if this paragraph, we can feel that the rhythm of the sentences grow quicker, because of the numerous comas and exclamative sentences, as if he was beginning to lose his calm and reassurance.
What I’m trying to say is, bees are misunderstood because everyone thinks that bees are out to get them, when really they are just trying to help the planet. Bees don’t just want to sting you. Remember, when a bees stings you, it loses it stinger and dies. Think about it, why would a bee want to die? Bees only want to sing you when you try to touch them, annoy them, or get too close to their hive (Cole 10).
They went into contest and Arachne had won, out of spite Athena turned her into a spider so she could weave forever. Now when we look back upon history is it really likely that this ever happen? Now it seems that there is another really big difference with these two types of religions. In Christianity the followers of God believe that he loves them and of his other followers. But the Greek gods were to be respected and feared.
A Haunted House by Virginia Woolf (1882-1941) reminded me that happiness is an eternal pursuit and to embrace the joy that my mundane life has to offer. The “treasure” referred to in the story is life pleasures. The author cleverly masks this in the beginning by using the words “it” and “here.” I was drawn to this story because of its sinister title, believing the house or its occupants would be the traditional antagonists. However, as I became immersed in the imagery used in the story, I realized I wanted the ghosts to find their “treasure.” I was able to create a mental picture of what is being described. Examples of imagery include, “The doors go shutting in the distance, gently knocking like the pulse of a heart.” I felt as if I were right there with the ghosts as the moved through the house.
Nonetheless, during War time, it was politically correct to create patriotic poems, touting the country, propagandising the war against the evil beasts that want to kill your child and wife. The poem is therefore an engaged poem, which is a subcategory of modernism. “Soon, no doubt, if it be your pleasure To cross the sleeping green between.” the grenn between symbolize the possible peace and calm it would be during peace time Another very interesting image in this poem is the sardonic rat, that means he always smile in a disgusting manner. We could compare him to a god, making fun of them and at the same time pitying the whole human race: “ the rat can't understand why men are fighting against each other, it's a concept totally new to him, we can tell it by the way he goes from one side to another The author is fully aware of that last bit, and emphasise it with these lines: “What
This poem is deeply personal and intense. “Arrival Of The Bee Box” is a poem that encompasses all three adjectives i this question’s assessment. The intensity of the poem is created through her desire to trust the bees but her fear of trusting them. “I am not a caesar.” Plath feels she is inadequate to control the bees, comparing them to a “roman mob” in the extended metaphor. She fears their wrath but, ironically, also wants to set them free – “If I just undid the locks and stood back”.
Dali’s pictures may seem illogical and absurd to an uninitiated observer. However, the artist, employed extensive symbolism in his work. For instance, “melting watches” that first appear in his famous picture “The Persistence of Memory” suggest Einstein’s theory that time is relative and not fixed. Dali uses the image of an egg in “The Metamorphosis of Narcissus” to symbolize hope and love. There are some animals that appear throughout his work: ants point to death, decay and immense sexual desire; the snail is connected to the human head; and locusts are a symbol of waste and fear.
If the following paragraphs we will discuss in detail each phrase and how the spider and speaker relate. In the first stanza we read that the speaker is observing a spider with great detail: “A noiseless patient spider,/I mark'd where on a little promontory it stood isolated,/Mark'd how to explore the vacant vast surrounding,/It launch'd forth filament, filament, filament, out of itself,/Ever unreeling them, ever tirelessly speeding them.” At this point it would appear that the speaker is almost mesmerized by the spider’s actions and very drawn to the web that is being created by this little creature. The isolation of this spider is what the speaker is feeling so he immediately can relate to the spider. The use of “how to explore the vacant vast surrounding,” initially makes you think that he is lonely but could also lead to the belief that he has much to explore around him. The spider has so much to explore but how is he going to do it?
In James W. Hall’s “Maybe Dats Your Pwoblem Too” most children can interpret it as humorous while adults can analyze rhetorical devices and find the poem somewhat subliminal. When One analyzes the rhetorical devices in Hall’s poem it is clear to see his intentions to not only contribute humor, but provides the poem with a theme. By utilizing diction, irony, and metaphor, Hall not only keeps a reader entertained but advocates a relatable situation. Throughout the entire poem, Hall chooses to show the awe-inspiring Spiderman with a speech impediment. He demonstrates his characters less flawless side by replacing all R’s with W’s also introducing humor into the poem.
