It is barbaric, awful and a terrible waste of human life. The rain is constantly flooding the trenches and turning the floor into mud, it is so bad that many of the men are getting open sores on their feet, they call it trench foot and they can hardly walk because of the pain. Life here is gruesome. Yesterday I saw my friend, Michael Phellps, die right in front of me because he had lost his gas mask and the enemy's gas was everywhere in the air. We couldn't do anything but watch him die, screaming for help.
Poem Essay: Dulce et Decorum Est Hour 3 AP Lit and Comp Stippel January 26, 2015 Dulce et Decorum Est Wilfred Owen, 1893 - 1918 Bent double, like old beggars under sacks, Knock-kneed, coughing like hags, we cursed through sludge, Till on the haunting flares we turned our backs And towards our distant rest began to trudge. Men marched asleep. Many had lost their boots But limped on, blood-shod. All went lame; all blind; Drunk with fatigue; deaf even to the hoots Of tired, outstripped Five-Nines that dropped behind. Gas!
Roger saw Piggy holding the conch in his hands, and aimed a giant bolder at him. It stuck him with force sending him off the cliff to his death, and causing the conch to break in his hands. Now no power was in the right hand, and all the power was in the wrong
She sees the Kanun as a restriction on the life of the people; causing nothing but anguish, murder and a feeling of constant apprehension. On page 67, Kadare's use of juxtaposition is shown as they draw closer to a church along the side of the road. Described as having a bell that's “bronze shimmer [was] spreading abroad like a smile” (Kadare 67), the church is quite beautiful. Yet upon its roof soars a black cross, “Shaped like a menace” (67). Upon seeing the church, Bessian is overrun by a fit of joy; he begins pointing out every cultural symbol he lays eyes on.
The dragon caught them and breathed a breath of her fiery lava and tried to burn them to death. The shock led donkey who was now being carried by Shrek to full through to the floor below due to a miraculous whole in the floor. Once landed Shrek spotted Fiona and with his huge muscles he picked her up in his other arm and set to charge off once again. She was so shocked and had no idea what was going on and began rambling on about how Shrek should give her a true loves kiss as he is her “knight”. Shrek responds very sarcastically explaining that he is a little busy now and there is a slight problem.
I close my eyes and see frogs and beetles lined in the trenches filled with knee-high water. I can smell the pervasive stench of feces, body odor, and death. I see the maggots, and I feel the cold mud when I close my eyes. I still feel my body itching from the lice outbreak that never got under control because of our tight quarters and unsanitary conditions. I see men begging to have their feet removed, the flesh on their feet rotting away because of the chronic wet conditions in the trenches.
The road to suicide is paved with either delightfully scary dreams or Blood cripplingly beautiful nightmare depictions in a insane mind races with ideas pf death Kid draped in night whose eyes now cut out see no more sunlight, and a mute mother cleaning their clothes. Close to Dawn, and a father who sits in the middle of a pentagon Brainless. Literally head open as if severed with some tool brainless,and i too feel this way. I palm this 44 "Die now" my inner demon tells me but i hear him not and drift once again i am at a crosswalk between me and my insecurities dancing the tango to backwards Ozzy music, allowing my for my sins and transgressions to clap screaming "Encore!!!" one swallow of Spit allowed me to calm..then shes fucking him again
It is also an example of symbolism as rag-dolls are life-less just as Mrs Sweeney is. In this part of the story we also get suspicious of Mr Sweeney as he would not go to the hospital when Mrs Sweeney is taken there because “he told everyone he hated hospitals”. The graveyard Scene is very tense and full of dark and scary images of death. As you read it you will be in suspense as Stanley uses clever and skilful metaphors and contrasting techniques. An example of a metaphor used is ‘a floating pool of light’.
The first is a pair of sound-image vignettes that juxtapose the grief and mourning of a mother and father as they deal with the loss of their only daughter. In one, the father (Jim Ryan) searches desperately for some sign of his missing daughter. Disoriented by the immensity of the rocky landscape, he stumbles, collapses and cries uncontrollably on the hillside. Filmed with a shaky hand-held camera and set to a musical crescendo that clangs violently along to the camera’s spasmodic movements, this scene physically evokes disorientation and hopelessness. Rose and Albert (the Aboriginal tracker) walk back towards their home carrying the child’s corpse.
All of these are used to subtly reference the overall air of darkness and horror apparent in the novel. In one instance, Victor is at the cemetery mourning the loss of his loved ones, and he remarks that “Everything was silent except the leaves of the trees, which were gently agitated by the wind; the night was nearly dark, and the scene would have been a solemn and affecting even to an uninterested observer” (Shelley 193). Victor would also have nightmares about the monster suffocating him and he would hear “groans and cries” ring in his ears. The metonyms add a parallel between the reader and the story by using commonly creepy circumstances to expedite the preexisting airs. In Poe’s “Fall of the House of Usher”, Roderick informs his friend that Madeline had mysteriously died.
