The prop of the Shoe-Horn is used as a unifying symbol throughout the play, symbolising the reconciliation of the women in the final scene. The stage direction depicts that it is offered symbolically to Bride as a token of the importance of their relationship. Equivalently, the poem South of My Days employs imagery enabling the readers visualisation of a metaphysical relationship between the persona and his surroundings, which is evident in the visualisation of the drover. The personification of the tablelands as ‘’bony slopes wincing under winter’’ utilises internal rhyme to draw the attention of reader’s as well as strengthening and signifying the relationship between the persona and country. The landscape is personified as ‘’lean and hungry’’ attaining a positive connotation, through the epithet, ‘’clean’’ and creates an atmosphere of vitality and freedom.
In Joe Wilson’s Courtship, Lawson conveys Joe’s strong emotions by giving his heart a human characteristic. “And, my heart gave a jump.” The way that Lawson portrays his characters emotion is very visually helpful through the use of personification, allowing the audience to further understand and reinforce the image from the emotion that the composer creates. In the Drover’s Wife, Lawson uses personification to reflect the landscape; to reinforce the tone and dry typical Australian outback. “She-oaks ‘sighing’ on the creek bed”. This visual image also provides a little bit of relief to the ear from the dry tone in the eye in the view.
Culture can therefore be defined as much by the land we inhabit as the rhythm that accompanies it. Rachel Perkins’ familial experience with reconciliation and acknowledgement of the journey all Australians must embrace centres around our cultural heritage, or song lines, past and present. This storytelling through music is an inherent part of successful cultures as music aids the land in either welcoming or rejecting us. Though cultures may vary, depending on the type of people involved, there can be a strong connection between cultures. In ‘One Night the Moon’ when Albert gives Rose Emily’s toy, it symbolizes that cultural differences can be overcome through understanding.
It prevails a tone of life, a feeling that there may still be hope in a time of such darkness, and gives an air of fierceness that proliferates around the bride. The message that develops from the emotion held with in Bullet Proof Glass # 2 is more of a yearning question, a need to understand the world and all the evil that befalls
After migrating to England, her memories of Australia are vividly illustrated by the naturalistic and liberating imagery of “lake, hills, blue green light and high sky.” This accumulative listing, formed into one fast paced sentence reflects how Australia’s landscape has a profound influence on her Australian sense of identity. This deep spiritual connection is reflected through the personification of the mountains which “wooed her.” Similarly to Feliks, this need motivates her to find a familiar “piece of landscape I could breathe in.” This mirrors the idiom of a “piece of cake,” which highlights her deep hunger and the satisfaction in finding a sense of Australian familiarity. References to well known icons such as “Home and Away” and “Neighbours,” reflects her patriotism, providing verisimilitude and connection to Australian readers. The continual references to her past highlight the enduring nature of belonging which may provide our identity from a young
Chelsea Widjaja Warren AP English 3 P 3 29 November 2012 Romanticism Synthesis Essay Romantic literature tends to emphasize a love of nature and a valuing of the common, "natural" man; Nathaniel Hawthorne portrays this theme throughout many of his romantic novels. Throughout his novel, The Scarlet Letter, and numerous of his romantic short stories, the presence of allegory is apparent as the author uses characters and events to symbolize his ideas and concepts. Through his use of allegory he was able to display a deeper meaning of his characters and symbols. Initially, a surfeit of allegory is used throughout The Scarlet Letter; through this, the author is able to establish the relationship between an image and an abstract meaning. One example of allegory in Hawthorne’s novel is when he presents Hester during the first scaffold scene, “… giving up her individuality, she would become the general symbol at which the preacher and moralist might point, and in which they might vivify and embody their images of woman's frailty and sinful passion …as the figure, the body, the reality of sin” (71-72).
Country in the tile connotes the serenity and peaceful beauty found in it that soothes the viewer. In this poem, the physical journey – a drive in the country, is a catalyst for reflection first on the calmness and sureness of the natural world, and then, dramatically, on death and hopelessness. The poem probably reflects Skrzynecki’s experience of living and working in northern NSW and he appears to be unhappy in this environment. The poet takes a trip to the country and this trip denotes a physical journey as an escape from the reality of life. This physical journey in the country acts as a temporary escape from reality.
The except opens with the description of a “valley of ashes” that Nick Carroway and Tom Buchanan is going to, to meet Tom Buchanan’s mistress, Myrtle Wilson. Fitzgerald uses alliteration to create a musical effect in the first paragraph. His alliterations, such as “grotesque gardens, cars crawls, obscures operations”, helps the passage flow, creating a musical ring to it. This device is used to help the reader along with giving the book a nice little tone to it, and it also gives a vivid description of the narrator’s surroundings, which makes it easier to draw pictures of the events and places that the author is talking about. The “valley of ashes” Is described to be a desolate and forsaken undeveloped land that marks the intersection of the city with the suburbs as it is said to be where “ashes grow like wheat into the ridges and hills and
Romantic artists, musicians, and writers were people in society who expressed their views with an emphasis on feeling, emotion, and experience. They viewed nature as an extreme power full of beauty and uniqueness. Their admiration for creativity plays an important role in the way they express. Romanticists didn’t like the materialistic things in the world. Romantic artists, musicians, and writers responded to the social, political, and economic changes in the 1800s by conveying their feelings and views in the work they were creating.
The items to the right of the little girl are beautifully portrayed. Her dress and apron are draped perfectly. This painting is an example of Naturalism; this is one of the most potent elements of design in the nineteenth century.
