Thus meaning God has a place for her later on and it should not matter that her house is gone. Bradstreet trusts God and his sagacity. An additional example Bradstreet adds to her poem that makes it more puritanical, is her belief that God makes everything happen for a reason. Towards the end of the poem Bradstreet acts more pragmatic about the situation. She starts understanding she did not own her house or anything in it, God did.
What would you do if your house caught on fire, and you’re asleep? What would you say? Think? In the poem “Here follow some verses upon the burning of our house, July10, 1666”, Anne Bradstreet’s attitude toward the loss of her material possessions is similar to that of Job’s, from the Book of Job on the Bible. In the Book of Job, the Devil questions Job’s loyalty to God and asked him to test him.
“Look here; I won’t talk another inch with ye, if you say any jokes about him!” Tess clearly honors her family as she has threatened not to talk to her friends again if they mock her father any longer. However I believe that Tess is in denial about her father’s position and has to make excuses as to why her father is behaving inappropriately . For example it says “The clubbists tittered, except the girl called Tess- in whom a slow heat seemed to rise at the sense that her father was making himself foolish in their eyes.” If Tess honestly believed that her father was in a high position in society she would not feel embarrassed that he was raving about it in public. She would be encouraging him and proud of him. Then in addition she says “He’s tired that’s all,” showing that Tess is in denial about her father’s position.
These began to surely challenge the concepts of angel in the house and separate spheres and perhaps depict and criticise them as being something unrealistic and futile. Firstly, the angel in the house concept essentially refers to the belief that a woman's role within society should always be domestic. From the poem 'angel in the house' by Coventry Patmore published in 1854, the concept effectively suggests that women should create a loving home for their husbands and children, please their husbands endlessly and bring peace to everyone, all without even considering their own wants and needs. This idea is demonstrated well in Source A, which is a narrative painting that shows a woman comforting her distressed husband while clearly having already attended to her housekeeping duties. Moreover, it is clear that not only is she a good wife to her husband but she is a good companion of his too: she works to please him.
We celebrate Fourth of July the day the Declaration of Independence created the United States. Today’s ideal American still holds ambitious values and has dreams of leadership and innovation. Americans not only set the standards for United States, but also for other countries. An American is one who chooses the difficult path because it is the right one, protecting ideals while watching out for the other guy. The ideal American succeed, because they are hardworking, kind, and honest.
Anne Bradstreet, a poet during the Puritan Era, wrote “Here Follows Some Verses upon the Burning of Our House July 10th, 1666”. In this poem Bradstreet explains that her house has just burnt down. At first, Bradstreet is in distress, but quickly changes her attitude to an idealistic one. She realizes her house is with God, so she has no need of an earthly home because God built her spiritual house. Her very optimistic view of the disaster really reveals idealism in her poem.
Mr Brokelhurst is a Calvinist, so he believes that Jane is not going to change at Lowood, and will continue on her path to hell. At Lowood, Jane meets Helen Burns. In appearance, the two get on like a house of fire, but in reality they are exceptionally different. Helen keeps quiet about her thoughts and conforms with the other students at Lowood, whereas Jane speaks her mind and does not feel the pressure to conform. In conclusion I agree that appearance and reality is the cornerstone of the novel, with lots of hidden contrasting between the
Antigone is so determined to honour her brother, and equally certain that her path was the correct one that she believed that the punishment she would receive would ‘...not be any pain’ and would’ve been had she ‘...left [her] mother’s son lie there unburied.’ Antigone appeared to be unafraid of death, as she believed she lived in ‘...daily torment’ due to the inherited family “curse”. To Antigone, her death was unavoidable, and honourable thus she was able to bear the
The poet is explaining how the aftermath of bombings can be worse than during them, as you see the destruction and scream in horror. this leaves children in pain, and perhaps makes them bitter about how their homes have been destroyed. The poet also suggests that war breaks hope. The image of her "window spun with stars" represents hopes and dreams. "stars" especially do this as a child will typically wish upon a star to make a dream come true.
