"Just the thought of being in an airless place made me gasp as if i were already down the mine rather then in the open heather-scented air". Not only for its deathlike appearance and catastrophic quality, yet also for what it symbolises to her feelings. The loss that she has experienced in the mine, of her best-friend who she could not help "I saw the noose go around Any's neck and knew they planned to hung her with her own rope, using the stow as the scuffled" and husband, not only leave her vulnerable and lost but can be seen to be her driving force to overcome herself walk into the darkness. "I had been afraid of the mines long before they had claimed my Sam." Anna does not go mining for personal benefits but just in order to help a girl who has lost her entire family recently.
They are frightened of the darkness of the jungle and what they cannot see. Neither group could clearly see the “beast”. This creature killed the pilot in Lost and the shadowy figure of a beast in LOTF shaped the behaviours of the boys. For example, the littluns would not go into the jungle to get firewood for fear of running into the beast. They preferred to stay on the beach and collect wet wood rather than venture into the jungle to find dry wood for the fire.
Rainsford recognizes that the animal fought, and was ultimately killed by the hunter. Although Rainsford didn’t know it at the time ,his struggle to make it to land and through dense jungle was only the beginning. “ All he knew was that he was safe from his enemy, the sea, and that utter weariness was on him.” But he was not safe on the “unbroken front in snarled and raged jungle…” The darkness, the
Gibbons uses language to create fear in his novel. Throughout the book, he adds different metaphors; one of which is when Rabia states, if you ‘choose to stand in no-man’s land you’re likely to be shot at’. This indicates, in her area of society, things are falling apart: people are picking sides, ready for war. The audience anticipate a conflict of some sort, therefore creating a sense of fear.

The initial shot that establishes the surroundings the darkness of the forest in the backdrop suggests the lack of mental security in Alex’s life; the darkness is a symbol of not knowing where to control yourself and overall provides the lack of clarity and structure in Alex’s mentality. The darkness also forms a reality of the situation, making it more sinister and frightening. The surroundings of the forest area make for an unsettling atmosphere and an eerie tone. The surroundings initially led me to feel uncomfortable with the silhouettes of the trees, with the illuminating ‘Home’ sign giving me a false sense of security amongst the darkness. The introduction of the car driving through the road adds to the intensity of the sequence, the car also represents phallic connotations and suggests the male dominance that the antagonists possess and thrive upon.
The silent scream reverberates within the painting and out to the viewer. The two shadowy figures in the background are somewhat mysterious, are they lurking and frightening the screamer or have they passed by and not even noticed the other person’s terror? Munch uses color quite dramatically in this painting. The vivid blood red of the sky, the yellowish cast to the skeletal face and the dark moody colors of the river add to the emotionalism of this piece. The work expresses the loneliness and awful despair felt by Munch, on realization of the might of the natural world in comparison to a single human being.
It appears has a very song like quality to it when the poem is read. However “The Tyger” is a very different poem. Its tone throughout is a more menacing and almost fearful tone. The speaker is fearful of the tiger, because it is so viscous and dangerous. The tiger is portrayed as a beautiful beast, but yet it is so dangerous that the speaker/reader is left to wonder how this is possible and why this would be created.
This system is flawed as it was never designed to ensure animal welfare. The animals are being whipped, their heads beaten onto concrete blocks and their throats only half-slit and died lingering deaths on these voyages. We, however, can change this. Now, in support of passing this bill to end live animal exports, I would like to present several ethical reasons why we should look at moving away from this cruel treatment of our animals. Firstly, the fate of our animals during transportation.
The behaviors of the exotic animals cannot be predicted, one may not order and command their steps each minute and therefore can kill or maim within few seconds. Many people according to studies have been killed and maimed by these animals within seconds. They can be extremely dangerous when provoked. Interference with the natural system As much as all the animals deserves to exist, keeping the exotic animals is taking them out of their natural habitats and may feel like they are lacking something. Keeping them also interferes with them since they are meant to be free and are used to hunting for themselves.
