It is different because in the movie the glass isn’t shot up on the trucks, but instead they were covered in blood. Also while watching the movie we see that the site of the drug deal was not far into the desert. In the novel it says that Llewyn Moss is somewhere in the middle of nowhere, so you can see that they over exaggerated in the novel a bit. In the novel No Country for Old Men the author did a better job at creating suspense than in the movie. In the novel, suspense is demonstrated a lot more then in the movie because in the movie they don’t spend much time explaining how the characters are feeling at certain points.
How does Blake present a troubled city in his poem London? In the poem ‘London’ by William Blake he uses a first person narrative, this makes the poem appear more personal, it is also written in the present tense which creates immediacy and gives the illusion that it is happening now. In the first line where he says ‘each charter’d street’ the word charter’d is repeated in the second line when he describes the Thames, the use of this shows that London is a city bound by law and there is a lack of freedom, the Thames is a natural river which cannot be changed, Blake is saying that he isn’t free and neither is the Thames this is a juxtaposition. Blake uses repetition again in this stanza with the word ‘marks’ the first is used as a verb. ‘Marks of weakness, marks of woe’ Blake uses marks as an abstract noun to describe the sadness of the people that he meets and also as a concrete noun to describe the physical cuts and scars.
But now, he is confronted to the monotony of pumping gas in the small town where he was born. John Updike does not take "good or bad" judgement on Flick's situation. He only uses some images to portray a dark, the world of the present and contrast it with the bright, shining glory of Flick's past. Some poets can made wrong judgements about the character of a story but John Updike doesn’t do that and that is why I loved this story. Those images are evident in the first two lines of the poem, where the avenue "bends with the trolley tracks and stops, cut off."
This showed the UK constitution to be very beneficial, and furthermore the Queen and the Royal Prerogative did not have to be consulted, which would have been different in a codified system and made the process much slower than in an uncodified constitution. Some may disagree with what seems to be one of the reasons why the uncodified constitution is advantageous and turn it on its head and say that the easiness of changing the constitution creates instability and unlawful action. An example of this was the use of rubber bullets and water cannons on the rioters in London. If the London riots occurred under an entrenched constitution there would have been no chance of the police being allowed to act in such a way legally, but under an
Both “The Prelude” by William Wordsworth and “London” By William Blake” convey strong ideas and feelings about a place. Blake’s poem is most subjective about the city, contrary to the title. The reader would think that the title “London” is objective and unbiased; however Blake’s condemnation of the city is apparent from the start of the poem. On a simple level, the poem is a description of the misery Blake sees as he “wanders” around London. On a deeper level however, he is criticizing not only the condition of the city itself, but the monarchy and government who oppress it.
Rorabaugh’s book Berkeley at War offers a reasonably objective look at the different components of, what came to be known as, the Movement. Because it is lacking the ideological influence of many books about this time period, it offers a much needed non-bias account. In order to avoid such biases, Rorabaugh utilizes documents from the period such as city records, manuscripts, and periodicals, without the advent of reflective interviews from participants in the festivities. It is a book written by a historian, “not the memoir of an eyewitness.”(XII) Berkeley at War deals with the development of radicalism within the city as well as city politics in general and offers one of the best accounts of the duality between the city and university. It follows the progression from the 1960 SLATE demonstration against the House Committee on Un-American Activities to the rise of the Free Speech Movement to the fall of People’s Park.
Another major factor in the theme of isolation is the Nine Lives Causeway, because it physically stops Kipps from entering and leaving Eel Marsh House with the fog; ‘…a thick, damp sea mist that had come over the marshes and enveloped everything’ (p 73). In this quote, Hill personifies the fog, which makes it seem more sinister and creates the feeling of Kipps being physically trapped by it. Furthermore, the sea ‘frets’ show pathetic fallacy, as Kipps is much happier and less fearful when they are not there, as shown in the quote ‘The air was crisp and fresh’. The mists also reflect the mystery around The Woman in Black and Eel marsh house. With the mists
Final Draft In the novel To Kill a Mockingbird Harper Lee uses imagery and diction to make the audience view Maycomb as a decrepit and poorly taken care of place. The author does this by using words to paint pictures in your head and using over exaggeration. Harper Lee uses words to paint the picture as Maycomb as an old town. The author does this by saying things such as “In rainy weather the streets turn to red slop” which implies that the streets are old fashion made and aren’t made of concrete like modern streets. Harper Lee also paints the picture of Maycomb as a hot place.
In chapter two of The Woman In Black, Susan Hill contrasts the emotions of the leading character, Arthur Kipps, with the pathetic fallacy to subvert the gothic genre. She does this by creating a sense of adventure and inquisitiveness through Arthur Kipps but describing the scenery to be dull and dreary. She portrayed the atmosphere to be flooded with thick yellow fog that “chocked and blinded, smeared and stained” the people of London. Describing the fog to have human abilities is an example of personification as it’s giving the fog, a nonhuman, the capabilities that humans have. By using the words “chocked” and “blinded”, it reflects on how vulnerable and exposed the public are due to this sinister fog.
Alan Mayne does not say there are not poor areas of urban cities, what he claims is that other writers exaggerate the extent of the problems of the nineteenth-century slum. Alan Mayne’s main arguments are that reading texts from that time are open to interpretation depending on the reader and that care should be taken when relying just on texts of that time. He states the slums are socially constructed by the bourgeois. He states that the newspaper article, that historians, rely on are written in a sensational style to sell newspaper, also the journalists that went to the slums so they could write about them were accompanied by “municipal officer” who had their own agenda and only showed the writers the worst part of the city Mayne claims the journalists in the nineteenth century use a number of different tactics to sensational the slums. They often used trigger words, metaphors, repetition and dramatization to capture the imagination of their readers and to sell as many newspapers as possible.
