Furthermore, Broe is creating an emphasis on the word ‘own’ in this sentence because she claims Plath is uneducated about Mein Kampf. This allows the audience to assume Broe is accenting Plath’s stupidity through the stanza written about Mein Kampf in her poem, “Daddy.” Later Broe goes on to say Plath “loses her own powers of descriptions to a senseless German prattle,” (Broe, 284). Moreover, Broe believes Plath’s allegory of Nazi-Jew is random and stupid and does not justify the proper of example of the relationship she ultimately held with her father. Broe also infers that by alluding to Nazi-Jew, Plath is only succeeding to put herself
In Cosi, the characters who seek to fulfil idealistic ambitions, such as ending poverty or opposing the Vietnam War, also – ironically and hypocritically – exhibit callous indifference to the suffering of those closest to them. Thus Nick and Lucy believe fervently in ‘free love’ and saving the world from oppressive governments. Lucy’s claim that ‘love is an emotional indulgence’ is a reflection of her view that ending the Vietnam war or that ‘bread’, ‘shelter’ and ‘equality’ are more important than staging an opera she derides as, ‘reactionary drivel’. Her views, and hypocrisy, shared by Nick are seemingly driven by compassion but blind her to the needs of those around her. Her affair with Nick destroys Lewis’s hopes of marriage with Lucy, and their dismissal of Lewis’s project in directing ‘Cosi Fan Tutte’ downplays the positive role he plays, improving the lives of the patients.
“It is when his absence is glaring that God is most necessary.” Sulphuric Acid by Amelie Nothomb p. 44 To believe in a higher being is a natural human comfort; it helps to put our minds at ease when we are confronted with a question we cannot answer and gives us hope about life in general. However, perhaps the downside of believing in God is that during the times that we need him the most, it appears that He is ignoring our cries for love and support by simply disappearing. This quote from Nothomb’s novel Sulphuric Acid not only applies to the story she portrays, but also in George Clooney’s Goodnight and Goodluck. Although these two stories seem to be completely different expressed in two different ways, they have one thing in common: the subject on relying on God when there’s nothing or no one else to turn to. Since this quote was derived from the pages of Sulphuric Acid, the meaning best applies to this story.
Emma and clueless – - Use of an omniscient narrator to allow reader to reassess their impressions of the characters. - Occasional intrusive comments by the use of irony (mr knightley’) - Over loud, face paced, non diegetic, over bright colours - Music establishes mood and highlights the emotional states of characters - Mr knightley provides correct evaluation of the characters’ behaviours and personal worth - Emma’s lack of perception and the pain she caused Harriet was the first stage of self-awareness relinquishing by Harriet of mr elton’s memorabilia and her confession that she loves mr knightley forced emma to realise she loved him - Emma needs to accept her personal faults and demonstrate social responsibility through her actions,
She just knows words to say. This is shown by her shock in Manly’s change of behavior, from a simpleton and Bible salesman to someone who declares about the truth he sells, “I hope you don’t think I believe that crap! I may sell Bibles but I know which end is up and I wasn’t born yesterday and I know where I’m going!” leaving Hulga alone, “sitting on the straw in the dusty sunlight.” (O’Connor 1030). Similarly the Grandmother would like to think of herself as a good person, but it takes her encounter with The Misfit to really make her a good person. All throughout her encounter with The Misfit she begs and pleads not for the life of her family but for The Misfit to spare her life.

Mentioning where an individual sleeps conveys their innocence when an individual sleeps they are no longer in control and their mind takes over, they are innocent of their actions. Shakespeare demonstrates that when an individual destroys family ties they also damage innocence, the Secret Life of Bees mirrors the sense of familiar betrayal. Bythewood demonstrates the human need of an individual to have a connection beyond memory, this is conveyed through Lily speaking to her mother in heaven, "bet my hair must have annoyed you when it went off in 11 different directions." The use of speaking to her mother through her religion demonstrate her purity and innocence. T-Ray, Lily's father betrays her through lies, "god damn woman didn't give a shit about you".
The Minotaur is a particularly fierce example of Hughes’ poetic criticism against his wife Sylvia Plath. Hughes presents a very subjective view of a situation that happened in Hughes and Plath’s married life. He trivialises the situation through juxtaposing strong words like “demented” with the insignificance of “being twenty minutes late for baby minding”. Hughes uses direct quotes to present himself as a supportive and helpful mentor and takes credit for her creative pursuits through the personification of Plath’s conscience as a goblin. His calm and supportive nature is juxtaposed through his portrayal of Plath as an unstable, explosive woman through the use of personal pronouns and strong onomatopoeia such as “you smashed” and “you swung”.
For many, if not all individuals, belonging is a complex challenge involving identity, relationships and connections to the greater world. An individual’s choice to either embrace or resist the challenge is heavily influenced by past experiences and the ramifications of these experiences on an individual’s sense of self-worth and ability to trust. Both genuine relationships and connection to a particular physical environment can also influence the response of an individual; encouraging them to embrace the challenge of belonging by providing physical security and acceptance. These statements are investigated in both Stephen Herrick’c contemporary verse novel ‘The Simple Gift’ and Isobelle Carmody’s post apocalyptic sci-fi novel ‘Obernewtyn. These texts also reveal that regardless of the response of the individual to the challenge of belonging, within each person is an inherent desire to be accepted and understood.
Another technique that Rossetti uses to create memorable characters is Maude Clare's repetition of 'half'; this illustrates another side to Maude Clare's seemingly arrogant character 'queen'. It conveys that she feels betrayed and rejected by her 'Lord'; 'Here's my half of the golden chain/ You wore about your neck.' Many critics believe that Maude Clare giving back Thomas' gifts along with the repetition of the plural pronoun 'we' reveal a significant factor of Thomas' character; he is fickle. Therefore, throughout the poem
