An affair that is dark in its sinister nature, and warm building up to the heat of passion that will arise. Next, as Monsieur Alcèe rides up to the house, “big rain drops began to fall.” The falling of the rain drops signifies the true beginning of the storm. Chopin significantly lets this occur at the same moment that Alcèe is first introduced in the story. Then the “water beat in upon the boards in driving sheets” showing the intensity of the storm outside, as well as the “driving” emotions building up as Monsieur Alcèe and Calixta move inside the house. Chopin further describes the rain as a “force and clatter that threatened to break an entrance and deluge them there.” When read closely the word “deluge” means more than a literal flood.
There is a real sense of danger and fear. The poem sets a stormy scene, with the word “wild” repeated at the start to show how wild and violent the storm is, and leaving us in no doubt as the mood of the poem. The sea is high and the gale has a steady “roar” with use of onomatopoeia emphasizing the sounds of the wind blowing brutally. There is a sense of personification with the “undertone muttering” with “incessant” showing that this noise continues all the time. This develops into ‘demoniac laughter’, which links the devil to the storm, making it seem evil and hostile.
This includes tragedies such as the Twin Towers being brought down on the 9th of November in 2001. Laing's anger and despair toward such events is intertwined into Bullet Proof Glass #2 demonstrating tones of darkness, questioning, and morbidness. Laing has incorporated a vast variety of techniques in her artwork such as powerful colours, the style of editing on the photograph, and how the brides body language speaks to the viewer, to portray her own pain. Its poetic touch is enhanced by the colours foreseen in the background and the brides burning emotions that seep through her arms. Her body image makes the viewer feel as if she were asking for something in a time of despair.
This cry continues to haunt Paul’s thoughts and is personified as having lips that cried and pleaded and “eyes that were mad.” By characterizing the woman’s cry, it offers the reader Paul’s view of Ellen’s pleading. Furthermore, Ross correlates the ceaseless dust-filled wind to Ellen’s consistent cry by the use of the metaphor. Ross describes “the wind [as persistent] as a woman’s
He uses the words 'a young man and his girl', as to say that this could have happened to anyone. Morgan creates very violent images using his great word choice; 'ragged diamond', 'shattered plate glass' and 'broken window'. He uses onomatopoeia to add sound effects to the silent image in your head; 'shattered plate glass', 'bristling with fragments of glass' an 'spurts'. Also, Morgan uses contrast; 'spurts arterial blood On her wet-look white coat', which gives you an image of how deep red blood looks on a snowy white backround, and helps you imagin how dangerous and deadly the injury is. Morgan also uses contrast of the young couples emotions of 'surprise, shock and the beginning of pain' to the youths whose 'faces show no expression'.
Both good and bad people receive rain for their crops. Chaos and disaster befalls both the good and the bad. The difference in the aftermath of tragedy is the lesson learned or not learned.” Through the cases of Mary Shelly’s Victor in Frankenstein and Shelley’s monstrous Frankenstein, Shelley’s Robert Walton, Maupassant’s
A great lies is about to happened as the storm about to come and “it shook […] ripping great furrows in the distant field” (159). Calixta (Bobinôt’s wife) suspects what is to come and “stood at the window with a greatly disturbed look on her face” (160). What is to come is a secret that must be kept. As the couple were distant apart, the “rain was coming down in sheets obscuring the view of far-off cabins and enveloping the distant wood in gray mist” (160). Implied that the truth is about to be covered up.
In her story "The Storm," Kate Chopin illustrates the sexual constraints of marriage during the late nineteenth century through symbolic representations witnessed during an affair. The storm itself is a literal symbol for the fear, desire, and damage that are all associated with the act of an affair. While Calizta's husband and son are out at the general store, she indulges in her own carnal desires and takes away a positive experience and new outlook for having done so. In the beginning, Calizta's young son, Bibi, when speaking to his father, Bobinot, describe his mother as being a worrisome woman. As the storm begins to approach, the two began to banter about what she will be doing during the storm.
She didn’t decide to throw them and decided to do a quail in rose petal sauce. “To spare the quail the pain she felt, Tita moved sharply and decisively, finishing him off as an act of mercy”. What this magical realism shows is how Tita is trying to make peace and just forget about the past. Later the family tried out the dinner that Tita did. “On her the food seemed to act as an aphrodisiac, she began to feel an intense heat pulsing through her limbs”(Esquivel 51).
Calixta invites him in, and then she realizes that the man, Alcee, is someone that she once shared a romantic past with. Part two also contains the climax of the storm outside the house, as well as within. As the storm intensifies, so does the interaction between Calixta and Alcee.
