We had lots of victims of biasing in the novel but two of them were more remarkable. Phoebe and Sal had interesting comments about Mrs. Cadaver and the lunatic (or Phoebe’s brother) in the beginning of the book, but later on we see that both of them were good people. In chapter 44, Sal understood that Mrs. Cadaver wasn’t an axe murderer or John’s valentine. She was the only person survived from the accident her mom died and Mr. Cadaver died in another accident, so Margaret was just trying to help John (pg 237). And Mike Bickle, wasn’t a lunatic.
Suburban Sonnet by Gwen Harwood Suburban Sonnet is a bleak poem, highlighting the personal limitations that accompany maternal responsibilities and the role of a housewife. It is clear even from the title that Gwen Harwood intends to tell the reader tales of vain attempts by things of beauty such as sonnets to overcome the bleak and depressing reality of something as dull as suburban life. One of many important features of the poem, though only expressed in few words, is the powerlessness of anonymity. From the outset it becomes clear to the reader that the failed pianist has no name. As she is anonymous the reader is alerted that this woman is no one important and therefore should not be paid particular attention.
Most people would agree that Edgar Allen Poe's "The Tell-Tale heart" is a story about how guilt can consume one’s life and that the truth provides a sense of satisfaction. However, how much are we diagnosing what Poe was trying to tell us? This story is about a gothic examination of a type of unexpected sexuality that Poe found too horrifying to tell the audience, keeping in mind that this type of incest (father-son) had not found itself in literature in the 1850's. Poe, which married his 13-year-old first cousin, dabbles with a lot of intimation of incestuous union between sibling in “The Fall of the House of Usher” but never father and son (it was considered extremely taboo.) For that reason, Poe tells a story in which the disturbing act of father-son incest is reenacted without being uncovered to his audience became his only outlet.
The dust symbolizes accumulation of unremoved past. When the town gets free postal delivery, she alone did not let the postal service workers put a number on her house; she resisted change so much that she does not even accept her letters because she has isolated herself from the present (39).
Briony's tale shows the futility of atonement through her crime and initial indifference towards it, her later feelings of guilt, and her attempts to gain forgiveness from Robbie and Cecilia. Briony's guilt and attempts at atonement provide one of the central plots in the novel. The crime she has committed is the destruction of an innocent man. In the beginning of the novel, the first time Briony feels guilt is when she tears open and reads Robbie's letter to Cecilia. “It was wrong to open other people's letters, but it was right, it was essential, for her to know everything.” (144).
The community pities her but really doesn’t want to help her. Its almost like they talk about and keep an eye on her so that other people don’t find the “skeleton in their closets”. I like how the story is told, it helps us see how judgmental people can be in thinking they are helping someone else. Having the gossip tell the story brings more mystery into this short tale. I think that if they would have told it in any other point of view it wouldn’t have made as much of an impact on our society or southern society.
Intro: Katherine Mansfield's story "Miss Brill" doesn't appeal to Laurence Perrine's "Escape Literature" based on his writings in "Escape and Interpretation." Happines, pleasure, plot and the element of surprise and a happy outcome doesn't appeal to the immature reader. First Paragraph: Firstly, Miss Brill doesn't appeal to Laurence Perrine's "Immature Reader" because Miss Brill's life it the farthest thing from happy. Miss Brill is an elderly, lonely lady who treats a fur that she owns as if it were human and her only companion. By this you can already tell that she is someone who has a emptyness in their life.
Death “Alive, Miss Emily had been a tradition, a duty, and a care; a sort of hereditary obligation upon the town”, writes Faulkner. Faulkner expresses many diverse thoughts through symbolism. Symbolism is the use of symbols to invest things with a representative meaning or to represent something abstract by something concrete. Most symbols are not simple and easy to interpret. They are not made to stand for one idea, but for many.
But in this story the bad guy is the one you pity and want to help out at the end. The story makes you believe that Tub would be the one everyone pity and he was in the beginning, but when he defended himself and shot Kenny it was definitely not like any normal fiction story. 6. What other elements of the story suggest that this is a serious, literary work rather than merely an entertaining yarn about three hapless hunters? One key element that suggest that “Hunters in the show” is a more serious literary work is the plot twist in the end.
In this movie there are a lot of quotes which I love, but when Augustus said with an unlit cigarette hanging from his lips, “It’s a metaphor, see: You put the killing thing right between your teeth, but you don’t give it the power to do its killing.” Augustus shows that when his health is surely not the best, he associates the unlit cigarette with taking control over his health, which often feels out of his control. This novel, one of the many things it taught me is that everyone dies. Well that is command sense, but never really thought about it because of the fear of dying. There is nothing we can do to stop the process of dying, or all the side-effects of dying. Cancer and depression are just side-effects of dying.
