This is used in the last line of the poem ‘Bide you with death and sin’; this symbolised her outrage at her sister and her hope that she will pay by going to hell after death. The word ‘Bide’ implies that she will have to live with what she has done, even after death. In contrast, Farmers Bride uses sibilance to emphasise that there are few good point about their relationship; ‘sweet as the wild violets, she, /To her wild self’ this symbolises his love and admiration for her, which is short lived as je cannot get near her. The word ‘wild’ has connotations of unspoilt freedom and rejection of people suggesting that she would rather be with nature than with another person, particularly a male. In sister Maude juxtaposition is used to show the emotion change from one stanza to the next.
The metaphors found in this poem bestow upon the reader a sense of the overdramatic; “the world drops dead” is an overstatement of the desperation she is feeling. Nothing exists but her lost love. The first line of the first stanza reads: “I shut my eyes and all the world drops dead:” (1) When she closes her eyes everything in existence fades from her mind and she is no longer thinking of the many problems that exist in the world, she can only think of her former lover. This line carries throughout the poem showing the significance of emotions. The second

Explore the Significance of Curley's Wife in 'Of Mice and Men' How is Curley's Wife presented in 'Of Mice and Men'? In this essay I will be discussing the significance of Curley's wife and outlining the main issues during the time era used in Steinbeck's novel. I will also be giving a brief look into the emotional turmoil of Curley's wife and why she was forced to mingle with others in hope of maybe achieving her version of the 'American dream' which ultimately is proven as useless since it leads to nothing but the demise of one of the main characters Lenny in a devastating turn of events. In some way one ciuld call this novel, very pessimistic or cynical, The novel reflects society's prejudice. People of color had no rights in America; they were considered sometimes 'unfit' for the world.
The two poems are also different in that in Suicide Note, the young girl has time to think about and give reason as to why she is taking her life. The college girl feels that she has to achieve perfection in everything that she does, and feels a sense of inadequacy. In Out, Out, the boy’s death is sudden (Frost, 1393). In conclusion, there are some similarities and differences in both poems. The authors in both poems portray how short life is, and unpredictable life can be.
When Lancelot is going to see the Lady of Shallot, she knows she is stepping into dangerous waters, but still goes along with it. Her image of herself turns so bad, that the basically kills herself and unhappy and lonely woman. After she is dead, Lancelot sees her and only says that “She has a lovely face,” demonstrating that he only cared about her looks and not really her inner beauty. The Lady of Shallot is a round character because she changes throughout the short story. At the beginning, she believes in herself and who she is as a person, but she is lonely.
Especially when she reminisces in the final stanza about the time she was young and beautiful, illustrating her complete lack of confidence. Nevertheless, she is still presented as a foul character who threatens the reader, with the line ‘Be terrified’. The poem also ends with the line ‘Look at me now’ which has a double entendre (double meaning). It could be read as a cry of despair or, as a threat – if you did look at Medusa you would die! This leaves the reader feeling conflicting emotions for the character, probably similar to how Medusa herself feels in the poem.
But what if you cannot believe the person telling the story? What if the story itself is not meant to be simply read, but translated? The Yellow Wallpaper is a short story that should be taken for what it is: the diary of a madwoman, but should not necessarily be believed as it is told. Charlotte Perkins Gilman penned this, what could be called a quasi-autobiography in 1892, as a “message from experience” to Dr. S. Weir Mitchell, a physician who treated Gilman’s ‘nervous disorder’ and prescribed his ‘rest cure’ to her in 1887: she was desperately pleading with him and others to alter this treatment, with warning of its horrific and detrimental effects. The dramatic and situational irony found over and over throughout the text in both narrative content and style are what in effect finally show the reader this story is not to be taken at the narrator’s word: a husband and wife lease a mansion for the summer so she can ‘rest’ to cure her ‘nervous condition’; family and servants tend to her, her baby and her duties- while she quietly obsesses about wall paper.
Additionally, it is likely that the fact Tess murders was enough of a controversial subject, without Hardy having to describe it, to shock the readers. The heartbreaking tragedy which radiates throughout the novel is particularly poignant when Tess gushes, ‘Say you do now, dear, dear husband; say you do love me, now I have killed him!’, with which Angel replies, ‘I do love you... it’s all come back!’ (page 448). Tess’s complete naivety and desperation for Angel’s acceptance and love has lead her to the extent of questioning her moral duty. As a reader we are unaware if Angel’s love has ‘come back’ because he’s finally seen Tess, or that it is because of Tess murdering Alec. Either way, further distress is created for the reader, as it is not possible for love to go away and then return and Tess seems completely oblivious to this.
At the beginning of the novella, Helga is reading Eva’s favourite book about The Ratcatcher, but throughout is often referred to as ‘Der Rattenfanger’. Similarly, Faith is in the scene too in a strange kind of freaky flash back sort of thing. The Ratcatcher in this scene is portrayed as an evil and dark mysterious figure, who gives a sense of fear and loss, especially, we realise this when Eva asks Helga what an abyss is: “What’s an abyss, Mutti?” this symbolises that The Ratcatcher is nothing but loss and no way of coming back from the abyss. When Eva gets to England she is about to be sent away to the country side because of the bombing raids. When she is supposed to go away this is symbolism of the Ratcatcher and she is about to be taken to a strange place this the same
