Also, on the second stanza the poetic voice alerts the reader to “don’t laugh”, implying that a person like this would be a target for mocks and jokes. Furthermore, the “clown punk” is also portrayed as a depressed individual since the narrator mentions his/her “deflated face and shrunken scalp” covered with “sad tattoos”. These powerful adjectives cause the reader to imagine a humiliated and repressed person who is slowly being killed by the several problems facing his life. Another verse which causes a great effect on the reader is when it mentions “think what he’ll look like in thirty years time”, followed by a dash which is used as a pause on the poem for the audience to imagine their own image of this clown punk in the future. Moreover, by stating how the kids “wince and scream” once they are faced with this person, the poetic voice shows how he is someone who people should be feared of.
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. Angel either loved Tess or he did not. She, in fact, probably did not consult her morals when murdering Alec, although it is clear she thought through her motives - ‘when I struck him on the mouth with my glove, that I might do it (murder) someday for the trap he set me in my simple youth’. It is interesting to note that it was a glove, rather than Tess’s hand that struck Alec on the mouth, indicating that Tess was detached from him from the beginning, that she almost feared touching him. However, a strike with a glove also conjures
Holden’s fear of change contributes to his resistance of the process of maturity. This is because Holden considers becoming mature a substantial change in his life and he, therefore, resists it. When Holden hired a prostitute, he realised that having sex with a prostitute would contribute to his progress to adulthood. Therefore, he attempted to get out of it by diverting the topics of the conversations he had with the prostitute, even though he knew it was a ‘childish thing’. It is notable that Holden never directly mentioned that he disliked sex; He merely says that he was ‘feeling so damn peculiar.’ His thoughts about the museum of Natural History demonstrate his fear of change.
Sure, so what if Lush Life is meant to portray the life of a detective correctly, showing readers that detectives usually have to mess up, be frustrated, meet obstacles, be bored, and deal with injustice? People read books to escape reality, but Lush Life, instead, paints a portrait of reality and not leaving out any piece of crap involved. We already know that life sucks, the police sucks, and bad guys always get away so even if Price was trying to show that we don’t live in a perfect world and that televised and dramatized versions are ultimately inaccurate, he didn’t have to turn Eric Cash’s life upside down and have the justice system be portrayed as incompetent and unfair. However, Price did and it’s just darn unfair. Turning Eric Cash’s life upside down seemed like a fun past time for Price.
Falling From Grace Since the beginning of time people have enjoyed reading books in which the “hero” falls from grace and struggles with the consequences. This is very much the case in the novel The Scarlet Letter by Nathaniel Hawthorne in which the reader learns about the journey of Hester Prynne, the women caught in adultery and sentenced to wear the shameful “A” on her chest. This journey, which includes Mr. Dimmesdale, the man Hester was involved with, Pearl, the daughter of Hester, and Chillingworth, the man who was married to Hester brings the reader into the exploration of the many themes apparent in the novel. In The Scarlet Letter, Nathaniel Hawthorne uses the characters in the story to help develop the themes of identity in society, the nature of evil, and secrecy versus exposure of sin. To begin, the theme of identity in society is developed through the characters of Hester, Mr. Dimmesdale, and Pearl.
“Half heresy, to wish the taps less vocal, the panes relieved of grime.” The speaker is not even up to cleaning windows on her own. The speaker uses the panes of glass a symbol, she might not want the bright light to shine through and shine upon the possible mistake she made. “Meanwhile, he, with a yawn, sounded a dozen notes upon the keyboard, declared it out of tune, shrugged at the mirror, rubbed at his beard, went out for cigarettes…” The lover shows up in this line of the poem during her inward panic attack showing the lover’s actions using an understatement to show the lack of their relationship. He takes everything in a laid back fashion somewhat like a joke—something easy—as she goes about cleaning up the room a bit still shaken from before. The speaker uses “…jeered by demons” to imply that she’s torn between her pros and cons of living where she does and with
Anders critiques the bank robbers as he would criticize one of the books he would read for work. For example, a reader can tell Anders is criticizing them, when he says: “Great script, eh? The stern, brass-knuckled poetry of the dangerous classes.” He finds these bank robbers to be predictable in their actions, and he cannot take them seriously. “‘Did you hear that?’ Anders said. Bright boy.
'Miss Gee' and 'Victor' are Responsible for Their Own Fate Discuss Auden is a famed poet not just for the fanciful tales his poems seem to tell on the surface, but because of the multiple layers of intricacy entwined within his words. By unraveling the lines of his verse, and looking more deeply at the meaning he was trying to convey behind his stories, we can see how he intended us to believe the fates of 'Victor' and 'Miss Gee' came to pass. A theme running through the entirety of 'Miss Gee' is one of repression. Everything Auden tells us about her gives the impression of an insignificant, narrow-minded woman, whose only goal in life appears to be to cope with it for as long as possible. 'She lived in Clevedon Terrace at Number 83', just one more house in a long line of identical houses.
And, is one category better than the other? Noel Gallagher voiced his frustration in an article in the guardian, stating that “read fiction is a waste of f***ing time” and that he only takes interest in factual books, in which things “have actually happened”. He points out how it is often difficult to suspend belief in something fictional, often reverting to thinking as he puts it, “This isn’t f***ing true”. Although Gallagher’s argument may appear rather blunt, it does raise an important point about ‘snobbery’ from people who feel comfortable with words, looking down upon those who aren’t. We must remember however that Noel Gallagher is a song writer himself, so naturally he writes his own fictions in his songs, which like reading, are just another medium of expressing emotion and creative ideas.
Morally, Mr. Martin’s plan is not correct but he does it anyways. Mr. Martin then pretends to be a smoker, drinker, and drug abuser in front of Mrs. Barrows to try to deceive her. Although his plan is clever his actions are not morally justified. Because Mr. Martin knows that if he pretends to act as a drug abuser, alcoholic, and smoker in front of Mrs. Barrows, she will go tell on him to their boss. Mr. Martin, however, is aware of the trust his boss has on him and knows that no one would believe her and in return his boss would think she needs psychological help and fire her.
