How does the writer present her thoughts and feelings about WW1? In the extract the writer presents her thoughts and feelings by using contrast. She starts off with all of the good points about the men going to war, by being very hyperbole about it all, and then the contrast comes in to present her feelings of anti-war and protest, displaying the reality of what the war is doing to our country. For example ‘How important, how joyously important they were.’ This line displays how, now the men have gone off to war, the women have to take place of the men’s jobs and therefore are needed all of a sudden, and how great it is to feel part of society. In the contrasting paragraph, she presents how she is anti-war, by saying ‘stop all this!’ this use of short a sentence emphases her thoughts about war, and how in fact it is ruining society.
In the film these retainers are his loyal soldiers who stand by him all the way to the end. They follow him to battles as well as look out for him when it seems as though danger is near. It seems as if they reflect the exact ideas as him but do not possess the same strength nor leadership to be in his position. Just like the basis of William Shakespeare’s romanic tragedy, Romeo & Juliet, the archetype of Star-crossed lovers also has a role in this story. The woman that William Wallace loved dearly and even secretly married did not survived throughout the story.
The poem is a very nationalistic example of the type of propaganda that was used to help inspire young boys and men to join the army. It made war sound like a fun sport game shown in the quotation, “Who's for the game, the biggest that's played, the red crashing game of a fight?” This of course contradicts what war is like in reality. Jessie Pope also endorsed patriotism by saying that going to war is “giving your country a hand.” She appeals to their passion for fighting their country, over their fear of being killed. She personifies England as feminine. She married the idea that it is every man’s duty to protect or save their women to it is also therefore every man’s duty to protect their country; thus making them a hero.
Improve An example of Homer contrasting Achilles' selfishness and Hector's nobility is when they have their discussion about their reasons for fighting in the war. Hector reveals his reasoning for fighting when he talks with his wife Andromache and states, "Wife, I too have thought upon all this, but with what face should I look upon the Trojans, men or women, if I shirked battle like a coward? I cannot do so: I know nothing save to fight bravely in the forefront of the Trojan host and win renown alike for my father and myself." This quote shows that Hector is fighting for respect for his family name, his city, and to protect his family from harm. This contrasts with Achilles who fights for fame and abundant wealth.
Would you do the same? Does Patriotism still matter? Some people are true Patriots, while others are not. Patriotism shows that you love and respect everything your country stands for, and you will fight to protect it. When soldiers get sent overseas, they leave their family to protect and keep our country safe.
“Tell me, my daughters/ (Since now we will divest us both of rule, / Interest of territory, cares of state), / Which of you shall we say doth love us most, / That we our largest bounty may extend/ Where nature doth with merit challenge.” (I i 50-55) At this point Lear’s love towards his daughters was uncertain, he took advantage over the love he had and used it for his own pride. In order for Lear to value unconditional love, he had to loss his beloved daughter Cordelia. Her death thought Lear many lessons. From the moment Lear understood Cordelia’s
Sophocles’(496-406) second most famous play Antigone contains many contrasts. According to G. M. Kirkwood, “A contrast between Antigone and Creon lies at the heart of the drama can be taken for granted” (118). In the story, Antigone wants to bury her brother, who fought bravely and died on the battlefield, but to do so would be to break the law since her brother fought on the side of Argos, the enemy of Thebes. Creon, her uncle, who has become king, represents the law. Although she cares for and respects her brother, her conscience will not let her disrespect her brother.
However this character is submerged beneath men for she is working as an assistant to a wealthy man. Even though the 20th century brought about feminist rights and respect for women they are still somehow dismissed in comparison to men. So is there really much difference in the way the dramatist’s present women? The representation of women is often used as a tool for developing the male characters in plays. This is very clearly illustrated in Arthur Miller’s Death of a Salesman; the primary female in the play is Linda, Willy Loman’s wife.
All through out the poem she is trying to put pressure on those who don’t want to go to war.
