Hill further builds up a calm atmosphere by expressing Kipps’ admiration of the house, with the quotes ‘I rather liked this lonely spot’ and his description ‘isolated, uncompromising, but also…handsome’. These quotes foreshadow the isolation that will be felt by Kipps much more strongly later on in the book, but also give a sense of quiet and calm, which further contrasts the din of London. The calm atmosphere starts being subverted when Keckwick leaves Kipps alone in the house for the first time and Kipps begins feeling ‘alone, outside that gaunt, empty house’. This builds tension and strengthens the mood of isolation, as Kipps will encounter the woman in black shortly. Another major factor in the theme of isolation is the Nine Lives Causeway, because it physically stops Kipps from entering and leaving Eel Marsh House with the fog; ‘…a thick, damp sea mist that had come over the marshes and enveloped everything’ (p 73).
The Indian prefers the soft of the wind darting over the face of the pond, the smell of the wind itself cleaned by a mid-day rain, or scented with pinion pine.” First Perce states that the white man only conquers the land then leaving everything else behind. This implies that the white man pays no close attention to the land. That he only sees as a mission or enemy that needs to be conquered. Then leaving sentimental objects such as father’s grave. Then sarcastically says “perhaps it is because the red man is savage and does not understand.” Saying that their tatics make no sense, that wasting so much is smart or more civilized, and which must be because he is “savage”.
’a wire fence and a few ragged gums…Then you’ll have the bush’. This effective use of a direct imperative followed by bland but valuable concrete sensory description as well as the listing of ‘a public house and a general store, with a square tank and a schoolhouse’ to describe the towns contents and the afterthought ‘but the shutters are up and the place empty’ pressure the responder to picture an idle and unfruitful image. The monotony of the environment is highlighted through these techniques and the responder instantly dislikes the Australian bush due to its sameness, predictability and desolation. Distinctively Visual Language creates images that allow the responder to establish relationships with the personas and their environment. Lawson wields a generous amount of sarcasm and humour into the sketch.
It was indeed a paradise, compared to the bleak forest, my former residence, the rain-dropping branches and dank earth”, I had a thought that the monster is too frustrated and timid at the reactions of people and already withdrew his hospitality from the attacks of human beings. But in this way, he would not be able to be integrated in the human society. He must be more dignified at himself and making some different approaches towards people although they might throw stones at his appearance. Another characteristic that I would like to write about is the monster’s lack of self-esteem. We have talked about a similar topic in class on why the monster was isolated from the society, and while the discussion I thought that it was the monster’s lack of self-esteem that eventually caused his exile from the society.
Compare and Contrast Essay Although Rainsford and The Man have distinct differences on their characters, they share similar internal characteristics that connect them by their personalities and behaviors. There are certainly more differences than similarities between the characters, however when comparing the similarities, the features of their personalities are strikingly alike. The following similarities between the Man and Rainsford show how two completely different characters in a story can be connected by certain radiating features. Both Rainsford and the Man disregard the life of animals which they hunt and exude a personality of dominance over the hunted. An example of this can be observed when the Man was on the brink of losing his fingers due to the cold weather and thought of killing the dog to simply warm his hands by using its body heat.
Their morose and depressed attitude becomes apparent when they say, “I brought a heart into the room, but from the room I carried none with me” (19-20). These types of words and phrases throughout the poem create the tone. The author tries to give examples of how saddened the speaker feels. Through these words and phrases of the poem, the author creates and apathetic tone and a morose attitude of the speaker. Although the poem’s tone words reveal the morose attitude of the speaker, the imagery in the poem also have that effect.
In this story foreshadowing was used throughout the story. An example of foreshadowing was when the story states, "Fifty degrees below zero stood for a bite of frost that hurt and that must be guarded against.... “This example hints that the cold will be the man's destiny. Another example was what the old timer told the man. The story displays how the forces of nature can surprisingly overwhelm even the most confident people, just like the man (protagonist). The first reason that led to his death is his stubbornness, which is a horrible character flaw for the man in the story.
Even though these images and diction are scary, the poem still manages to be more settling than Collins’s poem. Collins is softer with his images, but the poem is more unsettling. “… the Enola Gay dropped one tiny atom on Japan.” The image of this is much softer, but it feels more sinister. The teacher has just managed to make a horrific event seem like something very harmless. This “harmless” lie is in fact hindering the students.
Some feel that the sigh near the end is a sigh of relief because choosing the path less taken made all the difference in a positive way. Others argue that the sigh was that of disappointment. Looking further into the tone and the use of yellow, a color often associated with hope and happiness, I feel that the theme is a positive, encouraging one. When asked about the writing of the poem and what the sigh meant, Frost stayed true to personal interoperation as he would not answer one way or another. With this poem, one must come to the two paths and decide to take the road everyone else has taken, or to take the path that has been less traveled.
Merci 'less', which indicates being less mercy, this could suggest that war has no mercy on the soliders and the word iced gives the impression that war is bitter and cold just like the weather conditions not only i think it shows the effect of pain, also it partly shows that everyone (In war) and everything (weather) is against them. Never the less also in the first stanza wilfred owen uses imagery. For example: " winds that knive us.." The word Knive is a voilent object. The wind that knived them shows voilent actions. In war the opposite soliders fighting are obviously enemies, when Owen says the wind knived them he is tyring to say through words and imagery that the weather condition him and the rest of the crew were in was established as an enemy along side with the opposite soilder enemies.
