In 1984 by George Orwell, revealing imagery is used to establish the mood of the society in the book. Orwell uses dark imagery, coupled with totalitarian implications, that creates the terrifying influence of the state on its people. As well, Orwell uses several animal images to represent the deterioration of humans. In the first few paragraphs of the book, Orwell uses images that appear to be old and unclean to provide a dark setting which opens the story. Winston’s experience through “the hallway [that] smelt of boiled cabbage and old rag mats” creates the disgusting feel of one’s life in this dystopian society.
The silent scream reverberates within the painting and out to the viewer. The two shadowy figures in the background are somewhat mysterious, are they lurking and frightening the screamer or have they passed by and not even noticed the other person’s terror? Munch uses color quite dramatically in this painting. The vivid blood red of the sky, the yellowish cast to the skeletal face and the dark moody colors of the river add to the emotionalism of this piece. The work expresses the loneliness and awful despair felt by Munch, on realization of the might of the natural world in comparison to a single human being.
Between the dirt gathering with the sewage and the bacteria along with the dirty outhouses lead to the spread of diseases and eventually to the demise of some inhabitants. The overall conditions of the tenements waifs and children were near unlivable and were plagued by disease and crime. It
These conditions were horrific – the rooms were small, cramped and smelt awful, with people resorting to using their own sink as an alternative to the shared toilets. The walls often didn’t reach the ceiling, completely removing any privacy and increasing the likelihood of people informing on each other for expressing views that were against the state. In the novel, there are echoes of these dreadful conditions and the disquieting sense of paranoia in one’s own home. Winston himself inhabits a tiny flat in a building which smells “of boiled cabbage”, and included in his room is a “telescreen”. This invention of Orwell’s is a screen that “receive[s] and transmit[s] simultaneously”, meaning that any sound or movement he makes can be examined by the authorities.
Fitzgerald portrays Myrtle in such a 'scornful' manner , full of 'disdain'.However , if careful attention is paid , the reader will establish that 'she possessed' many 'turbulent' emotions one may sympathize with. Myrtle's house is displayed as a 'bare and unprosperous, 'dusty' garage.It did not seem like a civilized place to live in.It was a 'yellow block' , 'by the ash-heaps'.This indicates that she is from a poor background.The descriptions given to the house drives a person to feel pity for her mundane lifestyle. In addition, to add to her 'dull' house , her cheap clothes of 'brown muslin' and 'creme colored chiffon' convey her vulgar , unappealing taste in clothes. This gives the impression of a non-coordinated , unorganized, careless lady.

Brit K. Shakespeare Period 3 Quote analysis “Ignorance is the curse of god; knowledge is the wing wherewith we fly to heaven” (Henry VI, Part 2). Shakespeare talks about wisdom, and how a person lives their life. A person who lives their life in ignorance your life will be far worse “the Curse of God”. As opposed to a person who lives their life with knowledge, your life will be exquisite or just a better life “the wing wherewith to fly to heaven”. This is a far more delicate way of saying if you end up with ignorance you were not highly favored by God, but if you have knowledge you were and will be favored by god and will end up in heaven.
In the Sassoon’s poem “Aftermath,” he explains war as something that can never be forgotten. The distasteful thought haunts everyone to the point where war completely takes over the human mind. He documented the war environment as something that was unbearable to live at. Waking up next to a fellow member and seeing their body decay was worrisome. The rats crawling everywhere because the environment was not clean and unsanitary was frightening to see.
He then takes us back to the dark night full of nightmares and beasts. Overall, his poem is definitely not bright and cheerful. It mostly describes someone’s nightmare.

Moreover, as for “Leda and the Swan”, seems even more disturbing than “the Second Coming”.
The people of London are described as being weak and full of woe as the marks on their faces reveal. There is a repetition on the word "marks" which again stresses the despair and tiredness that they seem to be going through because of their oppressed way of
