He uses numerous words to express ideas and emotions instead of quickly being straight forward and conclusive. He uses diction in almost every sentence to boost our intellect; make it seem more real. In the passage Hawthorne writes “Although she hid the secret from herself, and grew pale whenever it struggled out of her heart, like a serpent from its hole,” instead of simply writing a conclusive passage such as “She hid the secret from her mind and grew sick to herself whenever she thought of her committed sin.” Hawthorne also uses devices such as syntax in his writing of The Scarlet Letter; his sentence structure is often very weighty. Hawthorne’s paragraph includes one-two drawn out sentences. With an abundance of asides, which the whole passage is, and bits of detail that create and amazingly complex set of ideas, Hawthorne manages to successfully conjure his image of Puritan society and how they treat Hester.
Book Spine Haiku No safe place out of My mind a pack of lies- the Smile breaking through This haiku focuses on the real world and the fight to be one’s self. Inside one’s head, in one’s mind, he or she knows who he or she is. The struggle comes when a person tries to remain who he or she is out of his or her mind in the world. Another problem occurs when people try to mask who they are and they cover up the truth with “a pack of lies.” These are not only lies, but also insults, insecurities, bullying, backhanded comments, and other ways people put down other people ultimately hiding who they are. When people are put down, they believe they have two options: they can either fall apart, or grow stronger and push through.

Generally it’s acceptable to lie to protect yourself but at the same time many take advantage of that. As you live you learn when and when not to lie.

It could also be a chivalrous gesture against an evil tyrant, even if it is not sincere like in “A & P” by John Updike. “Quote here.” (Updike). Any point in a story where two or more characters have opposite goals that they are trying to accomplish, and it creates a problem for the characters involved. Every character has a Voice in which they speak, and a Point of View in which they see the events of the story and think about them.

For example when we find out what the mistress is lying about one may not assume the word “unjust” to mean “infidelity” and in this case that is the prime meaning, it’s very important to the poem as a whole because it’s revealing the mistress to
They are the reason that Willy cannot seem to find success, and when he cannot meet his high expectations for himself, he lies and cheats in order to keep the unachievable ideal alive instead of being satisfied with less than perfect. The theme of dreams as aspirations, in this way, is what drives the main characters choices and therefore the entire play. Dreams also represent an escape from reality in Death of a Salesman, many times in the form of hallucinations. It is through Willy’s hallucinations that the audience is exposed to the past and they also provide a window into his feelings of regret. The audience learns about Willy’s affair through his delusional memory at the Chophouse, this form of a
