None of the authors of these horror books planned to make a sequel to their book; therefore I did not like how the authors left a lot up to the reader’s imagination since they did not plan on explaining more later on. What bothered me so much about the ending of these two stories was the fact that I would never know the real answers to any of the questions I had. Before I got to the end of The Exorcist and the story of Young Goodman
It is very much feared also. If the world did end, it would be very scary for people that may have survived. “The city was a dead place,” (Benet 411). For John, it was a place with no excitement, and nothing at all. The apocalypse is supposed to happen because of the sun burning up, so it would be very cold and lonely.
The saddest part of the Illinois mine disaster is that 111 lives have been altered forever in order for the government to be “politically correct” instead of doing what should have be done without even thinking of their own positions and how it would affect them. Considerations should have been taken into account on how the lives of the miners would be affected forever should an explosion took place. There were many that could have prevented the disaster on March 25, 1947. (Illinois Labor History Society, 2012) Scanlan could have taken a more proactive course of action and taken his reports to even a higher level of officials and government. He could not have let it rest that the mine was not safe.
They both used tone, but they were opposite. Wilbur wrote “the warping night air having brought the boom of an owl’s voice into her darkened room.” (Lines 1-2) By reading the very first lines of the poem, one can tell that the tone is mysterious, dark, and serious. Whereas Collins wrote “he told them that the Ice Age was really just the Chilly age.” (Lines 2-3) Collins is using a more informal approach and a light- hearted, satirical tone. After explaining the “Chilly age” Collins said that it was just a period of time when everyone had to wear sweaters. Both of the poems simplify the truth, or “sugar coat” it.
How the Japanese are just going through the struggle, understanding that life cannot be predicted. Hersey has ironic meanings in this novel. Things that nobody would have put together or looked at in that perspective. “There, in the tin factory, in the first moment of the atomic age, a human being was crushed by books, (Hersey 23).” In all of reality, books are somewhat outdated or obsolete today but then, books were power; books were only known to help. But in this case books hurt or injured Ms.
Yet, it was before this moment when one of the the first major turning points of the novella took place in this extract. Stevenson purposely wrote the story that Enfield would foolishly open the chapter with the naive thought that “We shall never see more of My Hyde”. This statement is beautifully ironic; Enfield believes that because of Hyde’s prolonged disappearance from the face of society, the case is closed, and that the “story’s at an end”. Unfortunately for all of the characters in this story, it couldn’t be further from the case. If we look into Henry Jekyll’s confession, we discover that slowly Jekyll does indeed spends less and less time being Jekyll, rather he is slowly transforming into Hyde without the presence of the dug.
Yet many of these novels are unjustly banned for reasons that may not be faulty at all. The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, written by Samuel Langhorne Clemens, or Mark Twain, has been banned across the nations for fairly unjust reasons regarding its language, yet those who wish to ban this novel do not take into consideration the historical accuracy and the main purpose of the language throughout the
The novel includes many motifs from the gothic genre and cleverly combines this with the romantic themes and plot to produce a novel very different to others when it was first published. One motif that Bronte uses is the use of fire and ice, especially in imagery. The use of this motif also helps the reader to understand more about the way that Jane is feeling. Bronte’s use of the fire and ice shows Jane’s struggle to find her place in society as a strong independent woman. The fire is Jane’s passion and independence while the ice is representing the forces that try to crush her spirit, and make her conform to the expectations of society.
Symbolism In both stories we read this week there was symbolism in them. The authors had some similar symbolism in the fact they both symbolized fear. As you read further on I will explain the symbolism in each story with examples of why I believe that was what the author was trying to symbolize. In The Birth-Mark by Nathaniel Hawthorne Aylmer tries to make Georgiana perfect by removing the birthmark on her face. Though when describing the birthmark it was described as relatively small and in the shape of a hand and crimson color in nature against her pale skin “a crimson stain upon the snow (pg.291).” By nature we as humans are imperfect and sometimes we try to be by changing things about ourselves.
