In the same way that Jesus used the parable to symbolize principles of the Kingdom, Lewis has crafted a story which resonates the Gospel, Christ, and the redemption of all mankind. Lewis’ heroine is Orual, the ugly older sister, who represents all of mankind and the crucial journey to divine restoration. Orual learns there is a struggle between human and divine love, and that there is no understanding of God without the complete sincerity of the soul. We have prepared for you a summary of this story to be told in parts throughout the night. Our story begins in the barbaric country of Glome in a pre-Christian civilization.
And heaven and earth are destined to wear out, for so says Isaiah: ‘Lift up your eyes on high and see’ (Isaiah 40:26) and it is written: ‘Lift up your eyes to the heavens and look (on the earth beneath. For the heavens will vanish like smoke, and the earth will wear out like a garment, and they who dwell in it will die like gnats)’ “(Isaiah 51:6). He said to her: “With the (words of the) same prophet you have rebuked me I (shall) answer you, as it is written: ‘For as the new heavens and new earth which I will make shall remain before me, says the Lord, so shall your descendants and your name remain’" (Isaiah 66:22). Preface מטרונה ,מטרונא, מטרונית, מטרוניתא, מטרוניתה – Matrona, matronit, matronita, in Hebrew or Aramaic spellings – those words appear in the several
The burning fire blows out and the movie fades to black and white symbolising what was then and the dark times that the Jewish people will be facing. Also the black and white symbolises the documentary feel to the movie. The realism of the events that happened on the movie and what actually happened during Hitler’s reign. Candles represent mortality, the flame burning down the wax is like saying you can't run from the inevitable, which is death. However at the end scene when we once again see the burning candle, but this time the inevitability has been overcome through Oscars actions, as there are 1100 Jews saved.
The opening line “today I’m going to kill something” evokes a shocking and chilling image of the poetic persona. The first person narrative allows the narrator to directly interact his thoughts and plans the reader. Whereas in shooting stars “after I no longer speak they break our fingers” this creates a horrific image in the readers mind. The line is written in present tense, bringing the event of holocaust closer to us. In the poem she is kept anonymous which suggests she is one of the six million Jews that died in the holocaust.
In “No Humanity in War” Umelo Ojinmah examines the brutality and inhumanity of war portrayed in Adichie’s Half of a Yellow Sun. Ojinmah also examines the love/betrayal side of Half of a Yellow Sun. Comments on Adiche’s writing and narrative styles are also mentioned. Lastly she examines the chronological, character placement, and narrative flaws of the novel. In “No Humanity in War” Ojinmah states that: “Adichie raises the point of the universal inhumanity of all wars through drawing parallels of repulsion from other wars.” She mentioned: “the women who fled Hamburg with the charred bodies of their children stuffed in suitcases, the Rwandan women who pocketed tiny parts of their mauled babies.”(3) This proves Adichie’s point on the fact that all wars, no matter the time nor location of its occurrence, will always inflict the same inhumanities on the unfortunate souls caught in between.
Robert Frost's short poem, “Fire and Ice”. The frequently asked question about the destruction of the world and how it is going to end is put into the readers mind, wondering if the world is more likely to be destroyed by fire or ice. Only nine lines long, this little poem is a brilliant example of Frost’s literary style. People are on both sides of the debate, and Frost introduces the reader to provide his personal opinion on the question of the end of the world. Frost first concludes that the world must end in fire after considering his personal experience with desire and passion, the emotions of fire.
The speaker is convinced that the devastating war or the quick-burning fires of war will destroy the living record of your memory. It states “Gainst death and all-oblivious enmity shall you pace forth; your praise shall still find room,” which means that you will continue on strongly in the face of death and dispassionate hostility. In this case, “permanence” is seen as a lasting thing with high hope for immortality and will live in this poetry as long as the lovers read this poem. On the other hand, Sonnet 65 has a different way of thinking when it comes to “permanence” because it states “since brass, nor stone, nor earth, nor boundless sea, but sad mortality o-‘er-sways their power,” so it is saying that it will not resist the power of mortality and will die over time. It is also saying that beauty’s power is no stronger than of a flower, so it doesn’t have a chance of resisting
When analyzing “Because I Could Not Stop for Death” by Emily Dickson, the lyric poem on the theme is death, the two elements of her style considered as point of view, are the following: immortality, and the physical process of death. The framework of the poem is immediately identified in the first two lines creating a contrast between “dead” (line 1) and calm of acceptance “He kindly stopped for me” (line 2). The stanza continues describing the journey to the grave, where the last ride can surely become an enjoyable trip “my labor and leisure too” (line 7); in the next quatrain, stages of life are clearly review: like childhood, maturity and decay “We passed the school, where children strove, at Recess-in the Ring”, We passed the fields on Gazing Grain-, We passed the Setting Sun” (lines 9-12). The following stanza, continues describing the magical journey, “Or rather-He passed Us-” (line 12) perhaps that’s what death is like, a shining light that leaves nothing but cold darkness, that can also be interpret as sorrow and pain. “The Dews drew quivering and chill, For only Gossamer, my Gown-, My Tippet-only Tulle -” (line 13-15) the last attire is been described as an old fashion gown and a kind of cape that is usually made out of fur is only tulle, this cold garment may never get warm, this dress is not appropriate for an end, this is not wedding this is a funeral.

These are all translations of the Latin phrase ‘MEMENTO MORI’. It is a genre of art that varies in form but all has one common theme – to remind people of their mortality.

The poet is saying that people should not talk about war as enthusiastically as it gives the impression that war is glorious. Furthermore, he says that the idea that ’it is sweet and right’ to die for your country is entirely untrue. Through this, we are able to form the opinion that war is not okay because it is a serious thing that carries many negative consequences. In Wilfred Owen’s poem Dolce et Decorum est, the use of similes conveys the harsh reality of war on soldiers as it changes them dramatically and kills the majority of them. In the first two lines of the poem, Owen uses the similes “Bent double like old beggars under sacks, knocked kneed, coughing like hags” to paint a grim picture in readers minds of how the soldiers were.
