Kinsley Kelso Professor Roberts ENG 102 12 April 2015 Symbolism Of A Parrot In the story, by Robert Butler, “Jealous Husband Returns in Form of a Parrot,” the point of view of the parrot helps to strengthen the themes and symbols within the story. He experiences the loss of almost all words and closure with his wife. Irony is presented throughout the story in the series of events. Containment in himself and giving up valuable chances while they were presented was something he was a victim of. He stays a victim of himself because of his transformation in to a bird.
As Montague observes, Romeo walks around before the sun rises, and Away from light steals home my heavy son And private in his chamber pens himself, Shuts up his windows, locks fair daylight out, And makes himself an artificial night (I, i. ll.135-138). Romeo does this, of course, because of Rosaline’s rejection. Romeo’s parents and cousin regard his darkness as “black and portentous,” and consider it a reason for concern. And indeed it is troubling, as this is not typical behavior for Romeo, nor is it expected of most people, and there is clearly something wrong with him. Romeo’s relationship with the dark is also strengthened through the object of his love, Rosaline.
“I waited for him to draw close enough for me to take off the tip of his finger” shows that his anger was present even as a bird. So anger also played a big role in his character also. The last characteristic trait of the husband is ignorance. His ignorance played a big role in his death. The lack of knowledge he had about his wife and what she was doing is kind of funny.

However, the book Inferno only focuses on his travels through the circles of Hell. As Dante views punishments in Hell, he often faints from the gruesomeness of them. Over time, his reaction to torture changes as he reflects them as a justice for sins. Another main character, Virgil, is a ghost that guides Dante through the depths of Hell. Virgil receives orders from an angel to lead Dante through Hell on a spiritual journey.
Leading off, conscience is reflected through the sleep imagery in Macbeth throughout the play. This is shown through the guilt in Macbeth, haunting nightmares and loss for sleep. Macbeth has a guilt within him that won’t leave his conscience, preventing him from sleeping in a peaceful state. He has not been at ease with himself since he went through with the murder of King Duncan. The troubles are hidden in Macbeth and are deteriorating him slowly and painfully, “And yet I would not sleep”(Shakespeare, II, I,8), to explain the consequences he faces now that he is a murderer.
The poem starts off with Archy giving the reader the setting and an idea that the moth is suicidal, but the next stanza explains that the moth and the cockroach do not understand each other’s lives. The cockroach sees that it is better to live
“Under the trees” (9) he hears “battle-shouts/and death cries” (9-10), using auditory imagery to appeal to the reader’s senses in showing the battle taking place. Then, meditating, he ponders on why that reality is not seen by the world, why it remains unknown in its secluded setting. The cries are “inaudible, so the eyes praise/to see the colors of these flies” (11-12), unaware of the warfare unfolding at their feet. The structure of the poem and the short independent stanzas show that each thought is simply an idea in the speaker’s mind, and each break is the few seconds he
My thesis changed because I felt if was very simple yet unclear. The main meaning or message of "The Raven" is, the irretrievable loss of unfathomable love can lead to a lifetime of affliction that leaves "nevermore". 4. "From my books surcease of sorrow - sorrow for the lost Lenore -For the rare and radiant maiden whom the angels named Lenore -Nameless here for evermore." The main character seems to be trying to withdraw himself from his thoughts about Lenore.
