By adding sensory images into his writing, bringing the essay to life; allowing the readers to feel like they are at the time, place and feel the emotions he felt. An example of the use of sensory images in Once More to the Lake is, “ I remembered being very careful never to rub my paddle against the gunwale for fear of disturbing the stillness of the cathedral.” The use of sensory image in this sentence allows for the readers to feel the stillness and peacefulness he feels when he’s at the lake. In Death of a Pig, “In the upset position the corners of his mouth had been turned down, giving him a frowning expression which was shaded by their coy little lashes, turned on me in disgust and hatred.” This sentence shows the use of personification and sensory images by adding human like characteristics to the pig, thus making the readers connect more to the story and feel sympathy for it. All in all, through the use of sensory
They are that we can learn from their mistakes, improve upon their own brilliant inventions, and lastly because it will help us understand how our country’s foundation was laid as these civilizations played a major part in it. One reason to learn about the Anasazi and the Mound Builders is so that we can learn from the mistakes they made and therefore not commit them in the present. An example of this is a theory of the demise of the Anasazi. The theory is basically that because of a long drought, the Anasazi were forced to leave their first home and move to Mesa Verde. We can learn from this that if the population is becoming too large then we should expand our territory to therefore obtain more resources in order to sustain the population.
Pols 1003 – Ideas in Politics What is the type of freedom that Mill advocates? John Stuart Mill (1806-1873) was a British philosopher, economist and political theorist often considered as the ‘most influential English speaking philosopher of the 19th century’. The aim of his works were to develop a positive view of the universe and the place of humans on it, one which contributes to the progress of human knowledge, well being and most importantly, individual freedom or liberty. Mill famously asserted “a man who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.” Indeed, the significance and value in Mill’s analysis of freedom is unprecedented, particularly that of liberty. His piece ‘On Liberty’, published in 1859, was revolutionary and influential as the ideas presented in this book have remained the basis of liberal political thought ever since.
Arthur continues to speak about how he will come to rule again. “I perish by this people which I made through Merlin sware that I should come again to rule once more-but let what will be” (896) This quote expresses bravery because Arthur is on his death bed and he is thinking about how he is going to come back and rule rather than wallowing about the fact that he is going pass away soon. Another example of bravery in the selection is when Arthur decides to trust Sir Benivere with the task of giving Excalibur to the Lady of the Lake. The act of being faithful to a private person, to whom fidelity is due, is the definition of loyalty. Loyalty was portrayed by Sir Benivere in the story when he is asked to throw Excalibur into the lake “Yet I thy hest will all perform at full, watch what I see, and lightly bring thee word” pg.

In the painting, the focus is on the farmer plowing his field, while in the corner one can see the legs of Icarus drowning in the sea. Auden and Williams were both impressed with how Brueghel portrayed this famous Greek myth about Icarus. Icarus was obsessed with the idea of flying, but found his death in the water. Brueghel almost waters down Icarus’ demise, focusing more on the everyday life of a simple farmer, fisherman, and a shepherd. In order to draw attention to Icarus, William states, "Unsignificantly/ off the coast /there was/ a splash quite unnoticed".
The tone of Miller’s stage directions and dialogue ranges from sincere to parodying, but, in general, the treatment is tender, though at times brutally honest, towards the protagonist’s plight. The ‘American Dream’, ‘abandonment’ and ‘betrayal’ also work as important themes within the play. Many critics describe Death of a Salesman as the first great American tragedy, and Miller gained eminence as a man who understood the deep essence of the United States. After World War II, the United States faced profound and irreconcilable domestic tensions and contradictions. Uneasy with this American milieu of denial and discord, a new generation of artists and writers influenced by existentialist philosophy and the hypocritical postwar condition took up arms in a battle for self-realization and expression of personal meaning.
“Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely,” said by John Emerich Edward Dalberg Acton describes exactly what happened in George Orwell's world of Nineteen Eighty-Four. In today's modern society one can see some of the characteristics of Orwell's dystopia. These characteristics suggest that while many saw novels like Nineteen Eighty-Four as, "attractive to the primarily fringe thinkers" (Science) they are still relative to this day. In essence Orwell gave signs through his novel so that people of the world can avoid destruction brought on by their own government like that of Hitler and Stalin. Gwyneth Roberts says in her article about Nineteen Eighty-Four that, “Some of Orwell’s Newspeak vocabulary (Newspeak itself, Big Brother, doublethink) has entered the English language; certainly his vision of a drab totalitarian future has entered the general consciousness, although it is difficult to know whether his warning [have] been fully understood” (Roberts).
Aimlessly, he decided to go to the pond where he remembered Allie’s death and imagined his funeral. Finally, eager to talk to Phoebe, he risked to go home.

MRS. THOMPSON PRE.AP ENGLISH 10-3 APRIL 10TH 2014 “The Ministers Black Veil” Thesis: Paul Zweig’s analysis about Edgar Allen Poe’s work can apply to Nathaniel Hawthorne’s work as well because they both wrote gothic literature that addressed America’s dread of personal failure in the 1800’s. “The Minister’s Black Veil’ shows a fear of personal failure and unhappiness in relationships. Mr. Hooper a gentlemanly friendly man about thirty, though still a bachelor, was dressed with due clerical neatness, as if a careful wife had starched his band, and brushed the weekly dust from his Sunday’s garb (Hawthorne 472). The town’s people looked to be confused that the person “Mr. Hooper” was wearing a black veil.
