It seems as if his dad was an alcoholic and cheating of his wife with another woman. These set the tone of sadness and depression in the poem. Imagery is used so much in explaining and providing evidence to the text. "The baby did not scream, but I remember that sigh/ when I reached inside for his tiny lungs and shook them out in the air for the flies. The relatives/ cheered.
She got out her curling irons and lighted the gas and went to work repairing the ravages made by generosity added to loveshe knew this sacrifice would bring joy to jim, her true love and was determined to not dwell but to move and do something great. She is a great example of selfless love and the love that ideally all spouses share. To describe the master-Jim, O.henry uses a very special way. When Jim reached home, after making his own christmas sacrice for Della, his true love, found his wife's long beautiful hair had been cut off, in the name of her love for him. Instead of reacting with frustration or anger he laughed at the irony of the situation.
Janie, though scared to death, appreciates these grand gestures. His commitment to her is reassured once again in this scene. In the second example of his protectiveness, Tea Cake helps Janie to survive the hurricane. Unfortunately, after a while his health starts to deteriorate and his “sick headache that made him lie down for awhile” (Their Eyes Were Watching God: 1990:
The storm is described in simple, direct language: it sets in early, it tears down tree limbs, and its force disturbs the calmness of the lake. The storm is also personified in a way that anticipates the mood of the speaker. The wind, the speaker explains, is “sullen”; it destroys the trees out of “spite”, and it deliberately tries to “vex”, or anger, the lake. Later in the poem the speaker is sullen and he uses his sullenness to elicit some type of reaction from Porphyria. Porphyria enters the speaker’s cottage, and immediately the tone of the poem changes.
Chanticleer taking too much pride in his woman Pertolete shows another example that is apparent in this selection. He says “let us speak of mirth and stop all of this; For when I see the beauty of your face, […] It makes my dreadfull terror wholly die.” The word mirth alone lends itself to the fact that Chanticleer is belittling the situation. Chaucer makes fun of Chanticleer when he tells Pertolete that all of his dreads vanish before her beautiful figure. Chaucer uses the pedestal
Blondness is often associated with angelic purity and with children. * Line 20: After pulling the speaker's head down against her bare shoulder, Porphyria spreads her "yellow hair" over him. It's the second time in three lines that her hair is described as "yellow." The speaker must really like that hair to be talking about it so much. * Lines 38-41: The speaker takes all of Porphyria's hair, wraps it three times around her neck, and strangles her.
Macy automatically charmed with Mrs. Warwick’s relaxed animated tone conjures up a cruel audacious way of thinking. The music playing in the background and Mrs. Warwick knitting composes a harmonious imagery blocking out the loud rainfall that’s considered to be irritating to Macy. Noticing how Mrs. Warwick’s calm, right-minded reaction to everything sets off his lonesome mood to worsen. Macy’s daily routine talking about tobacco crops and the annoying rainfall causes him to be incredibly bored and looks for an exciting thing to do, which in this case he “falls in love.” The high monarchy creates a respectful, royal, untouchable role that one imagines, evoking the rest to bow down and follow one’s action. Similar to colonialism, Macy considers this as the lifestyle that he desires with a bonus which is having a wife like Rhona.
VI. Deep, as drops from a statue's plinth The bee sucked in by the hyacinth, So will I bury me while burning, Quench like him at a plunge my yearning, Eyes in your eyes, lips on your lips! Fold me fast where the cincture slips, Prison all my soul in eternities of pleasure, Girdle me for once! But no---the old measure, They circle their rose on my rose tree. VII.
She states how “the tears that welled [for him] like springs are dry” and that in her dreams even a gnat “piercing like a trumpet” wakes her as she sees him suffering in war (878, 884). In these statements, the use of simile proves effective in showing loyalty to her husband despite her deception. Clytaemnestra clearly exploits her female stereotype to make her husband believe in her happiness and that she truly regrets his absence. She strives to calm his concerns, so that he will never suspect her to betray him and “stab” him in the future (1369). She attempts to gain sympathy from Agamemnon in speaking with exaggerated emotions.
Agony Aunt Dear Romeo, I have heard your story many times before, one of woe and love. My advice to your problems is simple, do as your friend tells you, go and see the world, experience other things and enjoy yourself. For your love for this girl Rosaline, will only worsen and you will only get more miserable. You are young and you don’t know true love, maybe you don’t even know love at all. I can tell that you don’t love this Rosaline, for when you say “feather of lead, bright smoke, cold fire, sick health” and “love is a smoke made with the fume of sighs, being purged, a fire sparkling in lovers’ eyes” I know that this “love” is really an infatuation, a want to be with someone, not real love.
