We can tell that the writer resents and is frustrated by his father as it says “and he being him can’t help but say.......... and I, being me” which shows that he is frustrated at their relationship. However the Harmonium is used to describe his father so therefore his family life whereas in Nettles it is reversed. The Nettles, that had caused pain for the boy, is actually describing soldiers and war therefore the underlying message is not about family but about war and the underlying message
By separating lines and starting new stanzas during mid-flow, she is able to portray a hesitance in the person’s voice. By writing in sonnet form, Shakespeare was also able to use regular external rhyme. This makes the poem feel as one and allows ideas to be linked throughout the poem. The use of para-rhyme can also be seen in Sonnet 116; ‘Love…Remove’. This gives a jarring effect, causing the words to stand out to the reader.
Holden describes Stradlater as a sexy bastard and maybe think that Jane is too much of an innocent girl. This could be a sign of his post traumatic stress disorder that he developed after Ally’s death. Session analysis: Holden was pressured to do Stradlaters homework which he clearly did not want too. Holden has a problem of saying no or telling people what to do. He is showing how he just wants to be left alone sometimes.
Hinton also uses metaphor in ‘’He laughed then, and his eyes were the golden…and this is now’’. She does this to allow the responder to see Mark’s change in personality and becomes a tougher person due to his experiences. The repetition of ‘’He didn’t understand’’ also emphasises on the break down between Mark and Bryon’s relationship and shows that they are slowly growing apart, losing the strong connection that was portrayed earlier in the story. In ‘The Man in the Mirror’, Jackson uses colloquial language in ‘’Gonna make a change, its gonna feel real good’’. Jackson uses this style of language to send a message to all people about how making our change will not only benefit others, but it will also benefit your own self.
This shows the distinction between the battle of right and wrong and how characters are either on one side or the other. Terry’s is influenced by his conscience throughout the film such as; when Joey Doyle is thrown off the roof, he thinks it’s unnecessary and that the guys were just going to talk to him but he trusts Johnny that it was the right decision. Another instance where Terry’s conscience effects his decisions is where he gives the tokens to Edie as he feels empathic of her brother and the damage he helped instigated. The sides of right and wrong are clearly
On page 62, Beatty says, “Don’t let the torrent of melancholy and drear philosophy drown our world.” Using words such as “drear” and “torrent” makes Bradbury’s diction distinguishable from other authors, while also being captivating. Also, his regular use of contradictions to show conflicting emotions is fascinating. For example, in Something Wicked This Way Comes, the father of a protagonist was debating whether or not he should follow his son, thinking to himself. “I’ll go there, thought Charles Halloway, I won’t go there. I like it, he thought, I don’t like it…Charles Halloway saw but chose not to see,” it says on page 41.
It is clear here that the speaker finds it difficult to accept the new start or regeneration which spring offers because they find it hard to let go of the past which winter holds on to. Furthermore from a more Freudian point of view, it could be argued that Eliot is the speaker throughout, subconsciously portraying his own envy of people who are happy because he isn’t for various reasons such as a disappointing married life which isn’t the fairy-tale new life marriage is envisioned as. Eliot himself claims that The Waste Land came from the state of mind he was in caused by his marriage. There is evidence of this particularly in part lll. ‘The Fire Sermon’ where there are allusions to marriage and also of regeneration.
This echoes one of the themes of this novel—adolescent confusion on the way to the adult world and the pain of growing up. As what Holden did before, he alienated himself from the outside phony world so as to protect the inner fragile, confused self. He labelled people around him as phonies and morons but it never downed on him that he was also one of the phonies who would flatter someone on mouth but curse him in heart. He didn’t know what he wanted to get from the adult
But after all he is not only internally troubled by his past and chained by his habits but also exposed to external judgements and other people’s prejudices based on his previous behaviour, both preventing him from moving on and living a full life. Paradoxically other people, except Julia, are requesting Dick to change and at the same time they only see what he was. External judgements are, however, even more
Andrew Wolff IB English Mrs. Singer Act 3 Commentary Hamlet’s soliloquy in Act 3, the “To Be or Not To Be,” portrays Hamlet as a very confused man. He is very unsure of himself and his thoughts often shift between two extremes. In the monologue, he contemplates whether or not he should continue to live, or if he should end his own life. Also, he considers seeking revenge for his father’s death. However, unlike Hamlet’s first two major soliloquies, this one seems to be governed by reason and not frenzied emotion.
