Sir Phillip Sidney exaggerates this expression to construct a drag of hate over time. Desire is depreciated by the speaker throughout the poem, yet not upon its enlightenment but for its golden coating. Sidney provoked pessimistic diction when calling desire just as bad as, “scums and dregs”. By this implication of downgrading “desire” to the lowest of the low, the reader feels the negativity received by the writer though the speaker. Sidney continues the cynical thought by quoting, “band of all evils”.
However, this poem was narrative thought the eye of a government official and his life was no longer seems quite the simply and joyful that it was. From the subtitle "To JS/07 M 378/This Marble Monument Is Erected by the State", we are able to tell that in the eyes of the government, who this character was referred to was not important, he was only being celebrated as he "served the greater community" and "he held the proper opinions". He was viewed as an ideal citizen for that society; this man has served the state in every aspect of his life, and the state is encouraging the others to do so. It is safe to say that one was not being respected as a human being in this society; what the state cares about is how this person behave and what parts does he take up in a society, individualism was not encouraged but instead, a communist-like idea was appeartly adopted. The quotation "found by the Bureau of Statics" let us know that the government is catagozing its citizen by nothing but statics and facts.
Clearly, no elements are more apparent than the tone and persona Raleigh creates with brilliant diction and fantastic structure. Raleigh’s sarcastic and challenging tone shows throughout this poem in order to drive home a vivid point to leave the world with. The ultimate message of not to trust the status quo and to challenge an unjust way of thinking crystalizes by the end of his rhetoric. First and foremost, the actual lie in this poem should not be thought of as a superficial lie, but something much more deeply rooted than that. When Raleigh writes of the lie, he means to challenge something at its own core and to prove it illogical, thus doing this by the use of his challenging and sarcastic tone.
Tory can only present facts about what happened, he couldn’t write about the emotional side because it is impossible for language to accurately bear witness. The narrator’s tone reflects the disgust that he has for the Rauca, the disgust at the simplicity the Rauca has with ending hundreds of lives. For instance, the Rauca, with the “cynicism and the utmost speed” decided who would leave merely by a “flick of the finger of his right hand” (225). Tory uses words such as “fiendish”, “separated”, “blood-stained”, and “scornful” in the passage (224-226). This is important because it forms within the reader’s mind the sentiment of the selection at the Ghetto.
For ATP, in the first couplet, the speaker is angry at his friend; in the second, at his foe. This difference immediately makes the simple poem less simple. As we continue on reading the couplets are beautifully rhyme, meter and show the importance of the purpose which is tolerance and forgiveness. In TMVTL rhyme is not respect and it too sentimental. The central idea is there but not coherent.
In "In a Mystery of Heroism" Stephen Crane uses the stylistic techniques of irony, dialogue, and realism, to create the theme of heroism. The stylistic technique irony created the theme of heroism in this mystery of heroism. The literary critic George Monteiro who wrote the article "After the Red Badger: Mysteries of Heroism, Death, and Burial in Stephen Crane's Fiction" says, "Fred Collins allows himself into performing a foolish dangerous act" (para. 8). The idea of dramatic irony since Collins is unknowing of this dangerous journey while the audience and his comrades are.
Assignment 1 From studying the novel “The Catcher in the Rye” by J.D. Salinger I discovered that Holden Caulfield, the main character in the novel is merely a confused adolescent filled with bitterness and resentment. His attitude towards others around him holds him back in life. He is a self-confessed compulsive liar and makes quick decisions without realising the consequences of his actions. The novel is narrated by him in the most colloquial of styles and it is obvious that his view on things could be an exaggerated truth in reality.
Seely states, “He is trying to sell a story that cant be sold”. Which I believe he means that these issues will never disappear as long as they continue to be avoided by ridiculous riddles. Although what Rumsfeld is saying makes perfect sense to me, could he have said it any better? His statements are very self-contradicting and a bit absurd but in reality it expresses a possible truth which is what I found most interesting. I have researched other poems spoken by Rumsfeld but “The Unknown was the one that I found made the most sense to me that is way I want to
HARDY’S TRAGIC VISION OF LIFE/ HARDY’S PHILOSOPHY Hardy and tragedy is a long story. The author is famous for his pessimistic vision of life, for his novels imbued with cosmic irony, his poems full of nostalgic feelings, the dreary existences and tragic destinies depicted in Tess of the d’Urbervilles and Jude the Obscure. The latter works even rely on an Aristotelian definition of tragedy. The author of Tess suggests that when the story ends, it means that “the President of the Immortals (in Æschylean phrase) had ended his sport with Tess” (384). In his preface to Jude the Obscure, Hardy explains his choice in depicting the protagonist’s sad fate through his marriage, his love story and his disillusions: [...] it seemed a good foundation for the fable of a tragedy, told for its own sake as a presentation of particulars containing a good deal that was universal, and not without a hope that certain cathartic, Aristotelian qualities might be found therein.
Our praise won't make his sky any bluer, his trees any greener, or his seas any deeper. He already has the glory there. How are we to give him glory, then? One way we can give God glory is by giving him the credit for what he does. When we say "thank you" automatically for a present those words do not have any effect on the present.
