The varied stanza structure that increases the emphasis allocated to each “We” creates an even stronger sense of unity between the group members. Inferring on the motives of the writing, it seems as if she wants to shed her subject in a cultish light. As the poem progresses the consistent line structure builds up a repetitive flow. The pattern is abruptly abandoned on the last line …We/ Die soon.” This ending leaves the last line bare as the rolling chant comes to a halt. Similar to how the pauses after each “We” created a resonating pause, the same can be said of the poem’s end.
The Haunter Imaginatively, and most pathetically, Hardy writes this plaintive and moving poem from the point of view of Emma. It is written in the first person, with her as the imaginary narrator. It is almost as if, in putting these words in the mouth of Emma (who, in the poem, sees Hardy as oblivious of her presence) Hardy is trying to reassure himself that she forgives him and continues to love him. Detailed commentary Though Hardy does not know it, Emma's phantom follows him in his meanderings, hearing, but unable to respond to, the remarks he addresses to her in his grief. When Emma was able to answer Hardy did not address her so frankly; when she expressed a wish to accompany him Hardy would become reluctant to go anywhere - but now he does wish she were with him.
The Elf Child October 4, 2012 In the novel The Scarlet Letter the character of Pearl is one that represents every since of the word ambiguous. Pearl is nothing but a child; she is an untamed and disobedient little “elf”, despite that she is a beautiful and loving child of her mother. Throughout the book, Pearl is depicted mocking her mother and other authority figures in her life, including governors, but she is also shown standing up for her mother and herself in various situations. These two different sides of Pearl make her highly ambiguous, and creates the effect of uncertainty in the reader of how they feel about her. Her ambiguity is significant because it represents the ambiguous atmosphere surrounding the affair between Hester

Because the elderly have a stereotypical image that they are useless they become a focus point as they have negative attitudes towards things and become more dependent on friends, family and social care services. This theory is like the disengagement and activity theory. The social creation of dependency theory is both sociological and psychological theory. An example of this theory is of a woman that use to participate in a hobby but can no longer do so because she is retired and has a low pension. Now she feels vulnerable and like she can’t enjoy life as she can’t take part.
Where did the genuine love of real people seem to disappear to? Montag dislikes this personified machinery that takes over his household and questions Mildred, “Does your ‘family’ love you, love you very much, love you with all their heart and soul, Millie?”(pg.77) Mildred does not, answer for deep inside, she knows that the life that she occupies, is unnatural.

It would seem that every character that we are introduced to in Steinbeck’s novella are indeed crippled in some way. There are the emotionally crippled, like George. There are mental and physical cripples, like Lennie and Candy. Then there are those who are crippled both physically and emotionally, such as the luckless Crooks. Throughout the story, we never really get a grasp of any sort of happiness in these people’s lives, so for these bleak men and women, an equally bleak ending seems almost unavoidable, if not expected.
