If the father fulfills his son;s requests to the best of his ability, he believes their relationship will last. Lee uses allegory by taking this small story to represent an entire relationship between a father and son. Li-Young Lee uses several literary devices in his poem "A Story" to show the complex relationship between a father and son. Lee utilizes structure, point of view, and allegory to represent the intricate relationship between a father and
The father and son need to make their way to the south during the aftermath of a nuclear war that wipes out civilization. The father and son share an extremely powerful bond that gives them the strength each other needs to keep going. Love, perseverance, and strength; all words used to describe the phrase “carrying the fire.” The boy’s last words to his father before leaving him are “I’ll talk to you everyday…And I wont forget. No matter what” (286). The boy is telling his father that he will continue to “carry the fire” and that he will never forget him even though he will no longer be with
Word painting was then applied through Chromaticism, symbolic death. Chromaticism is an alternation/substitution for diatonic scale members. Which can be seen near the beginning in the second bar. Purcell had also used word painting on the words “laid”, portraying death and agony with the use of descending chromatic lines. As the syllabic text is repeated, “Remember me”, the presentation of the notes start to leap in register and take a sudden change with a crescendo.
The vicious chain reaction of fear continues. After Macbeth kills Duncan, he is too scared to even carry the daggers back into the king’s chamber. He is completely surrounded by the immense fear which takes root in his mind and repeatedly reminds him of the fact that the regicide will eventually be discovered. In order to relieve this horror, Macbeth has no choices but to blame the murderous deed upon the two drunken chamberlains who are instigated by both Duncan’s sons. After he is successfully crowned as the king of Scotland, the prior fear fades away and begets another fear which forms images in Macbeth’ head with the previous scene of the day where him and Banquo listen to the prophecies of the three witches.
that this too too solid flesh would melt … all the uses of this world.” (I, ii, 129-135) Hamlet’s life no longer serves any value to him. He longs for death, wishing that he could end his own life without being doomed to an eternity in hell. This feeling lingers in his mind throughout most of the play, as in Hamlet’s fourth soliloquy it is believed he is debating killing himself as he ponders approaches that would not leave him at fault for his death; “Whether t’is nobler in the mind … and by opposing, end them?” (III, i, 57-60) Meanwhile, he also fears death as many of us today still do. Upon meeting his father’s apparition and learning of his unnatural murder, he is introduced to a new factor of death that was not considered before: purgatory. “Thou poor ghost.” (I, v, 97) Hamlet pities his father, as he was murdered and was not given the chance to pray.
He had a massive inner conflict between his secret fears and desire for power, and they were all presented in his soliloquy in Act 1, scene 7. One of fears is evident when Macbeth stated, ‘Bloody instructions, which, being taught, return/To plague the inventor: this even-handed justice’ (1.7. 9-10) He realized that by killing Duncan, there were consequences. If he killed the king, he himself might be killed, and was afraid of the revenge of the fate. Because of these fears, Macbeth became agitated and decided to hold back on his previous thought of assassinating Duncan.
Using this word is enhancing the fearful mood of what is to come. Hell is a word/place that has fear associated with it. When Lennie continuously asks, “George you gonna give me hell?” (Steinbeck 81), over and over even though said eagerly, it gives the reader a sense of fear for what’s coming up in the story. “‘Go on George ain’t you gonna give me no more hell?’ [Asked Lennie] ‘no’, said George” (Steinbeck 83). Lennie expecting and eager for George to give him more hell does not get the answer he expects because George knows that he is about to end Lennies life.
In fact, Baumer faces adversity when he must visit Kemmerich’s mother to inform her of his death. Due to the challenge of telling Kemmerich’s mother the truth, Baumer’s esteem takes a huge hit and continually spirals downwards for the remainder of the story. For example, since Kemmerich has died, Paul must pull himself together and visit his mother to inform her on the tragic news of her son’s death. It is extremely uneasy for Paul to perform this task as he believes it is not fair for Kemmerich to die while he lives. Paul ponders, “[f]our days left now.
For example, in the first three soliloquies, Hamlet was hesitant about avenging his father’s murder; he was looking for ways and reasons to stall. In his fourth and fifth soliloquies, he finally began to understand why he had to retaliate for his father’s murder: because he was the only one left to defend his family’s honor. His mother’s hasty marriage and father’s murder caused their name to be soiled and he was the only one who could save it. Thus, as a tragic hero he was able to clean his name but because it took him so long, it prolonged the fall of Denmark. His tragic flaw, inability to act, created so much conflict within himself that he, in other words, caused the fall of Denmark through weak leadership.
