This view of modern love is hopeless, full of despair for both the man and his distraught wife. Intense simile and metaphor throughout “Modern Love” accentuate this grim view on the concept of modern love. The muffled cries of the wife are called “little gaping snakes,” showing how afraid and vulnerable the husband is to them. The man’s wife has a “Giant heart of Memory and Tears,” revealing the heavy, unused organ that the wife carries around within her, empty of the love that it represents, only able to remember the sadness to which she has been subjected. Then, the husband and wife are said to be “like sculpture effigies” in their “common bed,” lying “stone-still.” This metaphor includes grim imagery of two people “moveless” and silent, looking back on their “dead black years” together.
"Ralph wept for the end of innocence, the darkness of man's heart, and the fall through the air of a true, wise friend called Piggy. "(LOFTF, pg 207) These lines from the end of Chapter 12 occur near the close of the novel, after the boys encounter the naval officer, who appears as if out of nowhere to save them. When Ralph sees the officer, his sudden realization that he is safe and will be returned to civilization plunges him into a reflective despair. Another important character in the novel is named Jack. Jack is the antagonist in Lord of the Flies.
“I’m nearly dead of it,” (Tolkien 104) Bilbo said a little upset after Gandalf told The Great Eagle that they were starving. Victor suffered after the horrible murders and deaths of each and every one of his loved ones. This happened several times in the book so he was also miserable quite a bit. Another time was while he was on his journey to find the monster. He stated, “I have endured misery,” (Shelley 206) because he was travelling over dangerous grounds with little food.
shawnzelle dillon Sept 10th 2012 Mr.Jones Active reading , critical thinking, and the writing process is important because it helps you to become an active reader, and a better writer. Active reading, critical thinking, and the writing process shows you how to read authors work properly, how to analyze, and discover and really take a deeper look at the authors words in a different way. Its helps you to find evidence beneath the text and find a new meaning to what the writer is trying to portray. Active reading is reading an authors work and examining it, and looking at how they are thinking. It is looking at and reading how others write, and at the same time comparing it to the way you write.
Isaac Lee Period 2 A Deadly Song As Odysseus was approaching the dreaded island of the sirens he is keen on protecting his men from the voices of the terrible beasts. The sirens were monsters that could lull any soul into coming upon their island by their beautiful song but only to devour that unfortunate person which is slightly ironic because signs of death were all around the sirens yet their song is too powerful. In the Homer’s epic poem the “Odyssey” and Margaret Atwood’s poem the “Siren Song” the sirens are described similarly and differently using tone, point of view and various poetic devices. The tone of the “Odyssey” is rather ominous and also a little sad while in “Siren Song”. The tone is melancholy and is rings of sadness and boredom.
The captain remarks ‘there don’t seem to be any signs of life’. This statement is ironic since land is where people live and not the sea; where a ship full of people has been stranded. Due to this very reason all the crew members on the boat assume that there is life on the distant land. Later on in the passage the cook says ‘funny they don’t see us’. This statement is repeated thrice in the whole passage emphasizing the irony of the predicament that the men face, and also that when people are in harsh situations they tend to blame everyone but themselves.
Reflective Practice and writing are according to Moon (2004) is a process where we clarifying procedure are being sorted out. Reflective writing is in cooperation both a records keeping and an evaluation of the work that you has accomplish. Pritchard (2009) explains that teachers are able to deliver appropriate learning situations, which enables learners to learn effectively. I can relate both points in studying the module 2001(Professional Development). I was able to gain experience in reflective learning by various activities, such as group presentation and mock interviews that was as part of the module.
Ishmael is a lonely, alienated individual who wants to see the "watery part of the world" (Melville 1). Ishmael tells the reader about his background and creates a depressed mood for the reader. Ishmael compares to Melville because he goes out on the “whaling ship out of spiritual malaise” (Delbanco 146). By Ishmael boarding a ship at such a young age, it was his own way of committing suicide. Ishmael’s boarding of ships compares to Melville’s own reality of his time at sea because it caused Melville to create a sense of social suicide (Delbanco 132).
Both Coleridge’s “The Rime of the Ancient Mariner” and De Quency’s Confessions of an English Opium-Eater are marked with the Romantic character to add strangeness to beauty. What are the “beautiful” things that surprise you most in these works and how do the two authors represent them? “The Rime of the Ancient Mariner” The poem tells the story of a mariner who kills an albatross and, by his crime, receives a series of terrible punishments. The ship where the mariner traveled was trapped in a frozen sea, an albatross comes to save the crew and stays with them, but the sailor kills the bird with a harpoon. This crime without motive brings death to the crew, except for the mariner to kill the bird's neck hangs footprint wickedness as unjustified.
He takes the blame alone, loses his navigation certificate, and retreats to ‘Patusan,’ an island in the South Seas, where he sacrifices himself in an affair of honor. In the epigraph above, Jim reflects on his position among the officers of the Patna. The quotation shows his haughty sense of himself as an upright man in the tropics, standing out from among indolent “natives” and dilapidated Europeans. But Jim’s cowardice and public humiliation put the lie to his grandiosity. Lord Jim offers two important lessons in writing the history of the British Empire.
