Othello Imagery Journal Animal Imagery 1. a) Iago: And though he in a fertile climate dwell / Plague him with flies: though that his joy be joy, /Yet throw such chances of vexation on’t / As may lose some colour. (1.1. 71-74) b) Do your best in creating rage and commotion within Desdemona’s family, and destroy all tranquility there might be in Brabantio’s life. Iago is ordering Roderigo to go and make a commotion in front of Brabantio’s house, telling Brabantio that he’s been “robbed” his daughter by Othello, using the most primitive, vulgar description in order to make Brabantio angry and take action against Othello. c) Poison, incense, plague, lose some colour.

Room 101 Speech (edited) 1. Are you tired of cheesy adverts that make you cringe to the bone? Have you had enough of Barry Scott showing you how to clean your old pennies? Do you think it’s time to put an end to those irritating slogans constantly throbbing in your brain? If so, we can all agree that the world would be a better place without them.
These line are filled with connotations of the speakers dream drying like a sedimentary layer to be forgotten about and trampled down into nothing. Then, just as if one were on fire “Or fester like a sore— and then run?” (4-5), the speaker ravishes with the denotation of a festering sore oozing and infecting all of its surroundings, like people affecting each other with their moods. It is about the pain and misery people feel and that they do not want to be alone in their sorrow. The speaker knows that if someone can't be happy then they can always pull another down to their level. This is just another facet of the human psyche that Hughes conveys through his speaker.
They often committed a myriad of staggering sins and believed they were masters of perpetuity. They deviated from faith, and moved heaven and earth for their self-contentment, fulfillment of their lustful desires and attaining happiness and peace of mind and unwarily persisted not keeping in mind any future consequences which they would have to bear the brunt of and could even lead to their own bitter end. We can take examples of powerful rulers such as Sultan Suleiman I of the Ottoman Empire and Asoka who carried on committing ruinous deeds and inhumanities not caring for their consequences and were absolutely corrupt people from within. Sultan Suleiman I executed his own son, heir to the throne, himself and Asoka brutally and mercilessly slaughtered innocent men, women and children in his world
This was an awful situation and job to have, the citizens played Mr. Smith and he never fully got what he went there for. The words “kidded” and “abused” leaves the reader with a negative opinion and feeling towards the people in this book at this point. Even through all this pain the customers caused him, Mr. Smith “smiled through it all” (Morrison 8). This shows the reader that Mr. Smith really did love them all, corresponding directly to his suicide note talking about how “[he] loved [them] all” (Morrison 3). After receiving this information, the reader is dazzled, how could he love these people who called him a “nutwagon”?
Here the descriptors “blind” and “deaf” – conditions that affect them “all” – are particularly apt; it is as if their mental faculties have been entirely dulled by a sordid routine of “coughing”, “fatigue” and the abrupt interjections of “Five-nines” dropping a knell of death behind them. The soldiers’ apathetic reaction of ‘turning away’ and refraining from any engagement with their surroundings ultimately depicts a subversion of a more natural vigor of perspective that embodies the prime of youth. Instead, the psyche of the individual within war is pre-occupied with the corporeal misery of ‘cursing’ through the sludge of their battleground. The deplorable state of the mind is further established within the strained call of “GAS!” in the second stanza of the poem. For the first time in the poem we see a glimmer of tense and frantic activity – an “ecstasy of fumbling” for the gas masks – as the jarring descriptor “ecstasy” establishes a sense of the trance-like state that dominates their conscious actions.
