The death of his mother doesn’t even bother him so show sadness. When Meursault realized that his freedom was gone away for good he begin to see things different.”And I felt ready to live again too. As if the blind rage had washed me clean, rid me of hope: for the first time, in that night alive with signs and stars, I opened myself to the gentle indifference of the world.”(Camus Stranger122). The quote explains that maybe he took the world for granted and there was so much to accomplish in the world of freedom. In The Myth of Sisyphus -Sisyphus stole the gods secrets and he was punished for this action.
The light in the café is man-made or artificial and can be turned off; giving us the sense that it can only be a temporary and incomplete relief from the emptiness of the dark. The light that shone on the brass number that was on the collar of the passing soldier is perhaps an indication of how meaningful this soldiers’ life was, which can be further emphasized in that he had a companion next to him. The old man likes to go to the café late at night “because he was deaf and now at night it was quiet and he felt the difference”. Daytime, with its busy streets, probably reminded him of his disconnection from the world, while the darkness of the night made him feel as if he was not missing out on much. In essence, being deaf can bring him darkness and a separation from the rest of the world which can be the symbolic reason why he chooses to sit in the shadow of the well-lighted café.
The theme of the story is the growth of the boy and the dissatisfaction when he found his belief was so weak in the darkness of the real world. The author uses many negative words to describe the place he lived. In “North Richmond Street, being blind, was a quiet street except hour when the Christian Brothers School set the boys free, An uninhabited house of two stores stood at the blind end.” (1) The word “blind end” implies there is no way out and there is no place for the boy to escape for his belief. Also, in the third paragraph, the word “somber” (10), “the dark muddy lanes behind the houses” (12-13), and “the dark dripping gardens”(14) show the image of the dirty place to the readers. He also shows his attitude at the beginning of the story, “I imagined that I bore my chalice safely through a throng of foes.” (29) He trusts his belief and believes it will keep his soul far away from the dirt.
The analogy of the cave tells us nothing about reality. Discuss  To explain the way in which Plato’s analogy of the cave could tell us something about reality, one could use the example of a small town, in the middle of nowhere. Many people live in this town, and it has a school, a church, a post office and a shop. The population of the town rarely leave to visit other places. These people can be considered to be the prisoners in Plato’s analogy, chained together, facing a blank wall, assuming to know everything about the world from the small part of it they’ve seen.
It is immediately obvious that he is not fit to take care of the children, but Mr. Poe seems to be oblivious to this fact and leaves the children in his care. During the children's stay with Count Olaf, they are forced to put up with less than satisfactory living conditions, a very dirty home and a myriad of chores. Justice Strauss, a neighbor of Count Olaf, provides the one bright spot in the orphans' lives.
This makes the people staying in Omelas just as inhumane as the ones who walk away. This is revealed when “They keep walking, and walk straight out of the city of Omelas, through the beautiful gates... They go on. They leave Omelas, they walk ahead into the darkness, and they do not come back.” (Le Guin, 3). This quotes that the ones who leave Omelas never return because they are unable to face the cruelty in their city and they refuse to be a part of it.
The form of section 1 seems to be very disjointed and especially Eliot’s lack of information on where the “hollow men” are. He says very little about their location and this helps us to portray them as stuck in nothingness, with nowhere to go and nothing to do. In Section 2, the language Eliot uses again gives us a sense of stasis of the “hollow men”. His use of biblical imagery with
The re-education village is almost completely void of entertainment and intrigue, which ultimately results in a community that is dull and culturally lifeless. Even the smallest portrayals of beauty, perceived by the eyes as well as the mind, is important in this novel because it proves to the narrator and Luo that there can be an escape from their gloomy surroundings, a change from their bland scenery, and hope for the future. The observation and appreciation of beauty represents a change in the culturally deprived setting that the narrator and Luo have been sentenced to. The Little Seamstress is unique to the two boys, as no other person they have come across in their village has been nearly as beautiful. She is described as, “the princess of Phoenix mountain… without doubt the loveliest pair of eyes in the district….” (21).
‘weep!” (3), shows the agony of the child who’s not even old enough to pronounce the term“sweep”. The child states, “so your chimneys I sweep & in soot I sleep” (4). The use of the “s” sounds hint towards the childs sadness at what life has brought him.Nevertheless, the child tries to make the best out of his situation & help others like “little Tom Dacre” and accept their situation, Tom cried at the loss of his innocence, but the child convinces him that it’s better that way because then, the “soot cannot spoil your white hair” (8). This means that the impurity & disgrace of his position can no longer touch him or hurt him. This nature is unusual for a child, but was produced because society pushed the child to mature into becoming an adult before he was even a child.In the poem an Angel tells Tom that if he is righteous and acts with the goodness of his heart then God will be his father and he would never wish for joy because he will forever have it.
