Continuing with the train imagery, Wilner writes that the Holocaust was a "rush hour of ghosts" (7). But all hope is not lost; one day, the final train will arrive and "the final / trump [will sound]" (8-9). In the same line, Wilner lets readers who are familiar with Jewish theology in on what she is writing about. When she writes that "the Saved dead will rise" she is alluding to the coming of the Messiah, for Jewish theology asserts that the dead will be resurrected at that time
The Horses By: Edwin Muir I chose this poem because it is a poem, which contains a strong theme. The poem is about the aftermath of a war in which all technology and means of communication have failed the survivors. This forces everyone to resort to a more old-fashioned and basic way of life. This is brought about by the arrival of the horses. The main theme of this poem focuses on both failed and successful references to communication and technology.
Edith Wharton (1862-1937), one of the most outstanding American writers in the 20th century, won the Pulitzer Prize for her novel, The Age of Innocence in 1921. Many of her short stories and novels portray the conflicts that occur between individual desires and societal expectations. She also steadfastly extols the virtues of high society and criticizes seriously the hypocrisies of the upper class in the American society. Roman Fever is her typical story that implies some serious aspects, condemning the hypocrisies, the promiscuity, the deceit and the jealously through two main characters, Mrs. Ansley and Mrs. Slade. (97w) The first serious aspect in Roman Fever by Edith Wharton is making love with someone before marriage.
This technique is called word-painting and it was used mostly in the Victorian era since that period was famous for its usage of picturesque elements. Poets, including Tennyson, used this technique to bring closer certain emotion they wanted to evoke in readers. At the very beginning of the poem, right below the title, Tennyson quotes Shakespeare’s verse from the play Measure for Measure: “Mariana in the moated grange”, which is actually the first image of isolation he manages to create in reader’s mind. It leaves the impression of dereliction, and it seems as if he is foreshadowing the theme of the whole poem. With this short sentence, the reader is directly familiarized with the setting.
I couldn’t have picked a more suitable actress to play Hermione. Emma Watson depicts her character as a very confident, sharp, loving, and bossy character. The first appearance of Hermione is always a favorite. Harry and Ron first meet on the train to Hogwarts and Hermione comes into their train car and is portrayed as overly confident and ridiculously talented and smart for a first year (and muggle blood). Hagrid is played by Robbie Coltrane and is shown as a giant, but he’s extremely loving and emotional at some points.
“My Last Duchess” by Robert Browning Written in 1842 by Robert Browning, “My Last Duchess" is a poem in the style of a dramatic monologue from the point of view of the Duke of Ferrara. The title of the poem is undoubtedly ambivalent as it offers the impression that the woman was the final Duchess, though readers soon surmise the Duchess to have been merely the latest. The title also suggests that the poem’s focus is the Duchess when the focus is the Duke as well. This dual focus is evident in the scene in which the Duchess is revealed just as the Duke reveals the portrait and unveils himself (lines 9-10). “My Last Duchess” serves two functions, to verbally depict the portrayal of a painted lady and the self-disclosure of the Duke.
The moth at the end of the second line is our first sign the poem doesn’t sell us a peaceful view of nature. The poem continues in this meter – the one most natural to English – and allows him to ask with a simultaneous easiness and form “What had that flower to do with being white?...What brought the kindred spider to that height?” (l. 9 and 11). Not afraid to briefly quote again. In the penultimate line of the poem, Frost breaks with conversational syntax but maintains the order in an almost unpleasant to say and harder to
In Victorian society women were expected to be passive and honest, and competed for more wealthy and worthy men. In this poem Maude Clare has obviously had a relationship with Thomas. In the line ‘We plucked from budding bough’ which could be referring to Adam and Eve and how a woman brought evil into the world. The poem is in chronological order with flashbacks to Maude Clare and Thomas in the past. The poem begins as the married couple leave the church, then there is the argument between Maude Clare and Thomas, where Maude Clare reminds him of their relationship.
The Role Of Trains In Anna Karenina In the book Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy, trains are prevalent in bringing about change, both outright and in a roundabout manner, of a character, and ultimately bringing about death of the character from the change. The machines are portrayed as bad, bad for society and people in general, and bracket the novel in a negative light. Trains are a means of transport, and the metaphor of the train can be extended to Anna’s ‘transport’ of attraction, from Karenin to Vronsky. The metaphor of transportation, or transportation of ‘love’, for a quick change in scenery is a clear one. Anna knew she was never in a proper relationship with Karenin, and when she saw Vronsky for the first time, she found herself interested in his fascination for her.
The Ice Palace The short story “The Ice Palace” written by Francis Scott Fitzgerald who is an American author of novels and short stories, whose works are the paradigmatic writings of the Jazz Age.
