This is a good example of darkness imagery because when crashing thunder, lightning and rain come to mind, they all remind you of evil and ominous things. There is also a total reversal of values shown by the use of oxymoronic language. In act 1, scene 3 Macbeth and Banquo come across the witches and when Banquo says
Using locations such as the heath, creates a sense of isolation and secrecy, and highlights the fact that the witches are separated from the rest of the characters and society. This is a common association with witches, who in Elizabethan times were regarded as social outcasts. Furthermore, the themes of isolation and loneliness that are emphasised here are key elements that conform to the gothic genre. In addition, the witches are surrounded by “thunder and lightning”, which produces a dark and violent mood at the beginning of the play. Shakespeare has employed pathetic fallacy, as the wild weather foreshadows the unnatural events that are going to occur.
William Blake also ties together Death and Intelligence. Is a human being’s death more significant because of its conscience intelligence and is the ignorance of an animal like the fly truly bliss? The relationship between the narrator and the fly starts out separate in the beginning of the poem, but ends in comparison. As if in the end, our lives are all simply equal in this world. “The Fox” by Kenneth Patchen explores the idea of Death through the story of a pregnant fox that is shot by a hunter.
Melanie’s only source of light is her flashlight. Hitchcock uses high angle shots of Melanie ascending the stairs and a low angle shots of the door, to show that the door as having power over Melanie. As Melanie opens the door, there is focus on the hole in the roof which makes us aware that something is wrong. The birds then come rushing down to attack Melanie. Quick cutting from Melanie to the birds shows the confusion of The short story “The Birds” is similar to the movie “The Birds” in many different ways.
In the chapter called 'Across the Causeway', the writer creates tension by using an isolated burial ground, which makes the reader focus on the sense of isolation. The fact that Arthur Kipps is in an unknown, mysterious place accentuates tension, because the word "burial" makes us think about death and loneliness which creates apprehension and tension in the reader's mind. Also, the word "isolated" suggests that you're alone and this creates tension because it implies a feeling of discomfort and insecurity. Furthermore, the burial ground is described as "decayed", and this makes me think about a abandoned decomposing corpse, and this fact means that this place is not visited often and that it is in a state of total ruin. This idea is supported by the fact that this burial ground is "enclosed by the remains of walls".
Labeling and stereotyping. They don’t seem like a big deal until it causes chaos in the book To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee. In Maycomb, this is a big issue in the community. Scout is watching and understanding this world differently, being young and very influential racisms changes her, in maturing and her personality. Scout is the main character, she is the reason the Finches get in all these dilemmas.
In thunder, lighting or in rain?” (I. i. 2-3). Shakespeare uses the weather to show that the witches represent evil, using the element of natural darkness. Because they would not dream of meeting while the weather is good, it shows imagery of something that is evil. Banquo also uses the metaphor of darkness to describe the witches as well when he refers to them as “instruments of darkness” (I. iii.
To Kill A Mockingbird Symbolism is woven throughout the timeless classic by Harper Lee, “To Kill A Mockingbird.” This story is based on the coexistence of good and evil and how one learns to hang on to hope, despite evil in the world. Harper Lee uses symbolism to make the story more interesting and more timeless. There are several characters in the book that can be seen as mockingbirds; a symbol of pleasantness and innocence. Symbolism related to prejudice is noted through the story. Fighting injustice and standing for the truth is symbolized in the story.
The Light in Maycomb In a town filled with poverty, racism and hate is a tiny bit of hope that lies on the shoulders of the honest Atticus finch. He is the defender of all that is good and pure in Maycomb. But with good there is always evil, and Mayella happens to fall in the evil category. She herself isn't necessary sinister, but the actions she commits only fuels the hate and prejudiced of the town which eventually condemns a man. In Harper Lee's To Kill a Mockingbird, there are two very distinctly different groups, the group of good and then the group of evil.
The tone is melancholy and is rings of sadness and boredom. The lines “our trim ship was speeding toward the siren’s island, driven by the brisk wind.” are rather dark because a brisk wind implies that the air was cold and coldness is associated with death. Also in the “Odyssey” there is a hint of sorrow when Odysseus could not satisfy his heart fully with the siren song, obviously for the better, “So they sent their ravishing voices out across the air and the heart inside me throbbed to listen longer”. In Atwood’s poem, the lines, “This song is a cry for help: Help me! Only you, only you can, you are unique as last.” Convey sadness for the siren who is portrayed as a involuntary prisoner on this island.
