Writers often use passive voice to remove the subject or the feeling out of a passage. In the novel Hard Times, Charles Dickens uses passive voice to help show his anti-utilitarianism ideas. When discussing the wedding between two people, Louisa and Bounderby, Dickens has the character speaking in passive voice, which takes out all the feelings that should come with a wedding. When thinking about a marriage it is often not thought of as though “love was made on these occasions in the form of bracelets.” When discussing the very heartless marriage between Louisa and Bounderby Dickens uses passive voice to further exploit the heartlessness that is within the ideas of utilitarianism. Utilitarianism contains the idea that the suffering of one is acceptable for a greater happiness.
The story is set up as a dialogue between the two, in which the man is trying to convince the woman to do something she is hesitant in doing. “Hills Like White Elephants” displays the differences in the way a man and a woman view pregnancy and abortion. The woman looks at pregnancy as a beautiful aspect of life. In the story the woman’s pregnancy is implied through their conversation. This couple is at a critical point in their lives when they must decide whether or not to have an abortion.
Hashmi notes, “Thus the girl, who now wants more than a relationship based on sex and alcohol, would have no reason to stay on with the man” (Hashmi) But, there are a few details that do not seem to fit into this. Why does she continue to smile at the man though she cannot tolerate him? Hashmi says “A mere smile would not be sufficient reason to cast doubt on an interpretation in the case of most writers. But this writer is Hemingway”. (Hashmi) According to Hashmi, Stanley Renners “innovative” and “challenging” statement is when the attendant says that the train is arriving; the American then brings the bags to the “other side.” He believes that the “other side” symbolizes not the other side of the station but the other side of the argument.
He is talking about Curley’s wife with the clear intention of discrediting her to George. This displays him to be a heedful rumourmonger amongst the other itinerant workers: “Well, I think Curley’s married a tart.” In addition, another language device that Steinbeck uses in this passage to present Candy is adjectives. There are a wide variety of adjectives used such as, “reassured” and, “safe” which also describe Candy’s inner thoughts and feelings. The fact that Candy feels secure when taking to George implies that he is reluctant to talk to any of the other ranch hands because they usually disrespect him and exclude him for who he is: a disabled individual. However, “reassured” may suggest a sense of caution and perceptiveness about Candy, and suggests that initially he did not trust George and Lenny.
Hills Like White Elephants In Ernest Hemingway's "Hills Like White Elephants”, the story illustrates a young woman named Jig and an American man challenged with the decision of abortion. Throughout the sequence of the story it is apparent that the man is persuading Jig to undergo the procedure. The apprehensive discussion the two are having suggests that they are avoiding the underlying issue at hand. In addition, the setting of the story establishes the stigma involved with the procedure, as Jig left her town and traveled to Spain. Hemingway’s use of symbolism in the dialogue and setting helps reveal the difficult matter through suggestion without the actual term abortion being mentioned.

Ernest Hemingway's Hills Like White Elephants is a short story revolving around a conversation between an American man, and a woman named Jig. It is apparent that there is tension between the two, as the conversation in the start is short and impersonal. They comment briefly on the hills they are facing, and then the conversation turns towards what is causing the tension between the two. Jig is pregnant, and the America man tries to convince the woman to have an abortion, but only if she wants to. She wonders if this will solve their problems and get the relationship back on track, where he argues that it is on track; but he is just worried about the pregnancy.
In Elizabethan society, women had to obey their fathers in choosing their future husbands, but we have to realize that Olivia is free to choose her man, because he has no father and no brother. This is a clear innovation which Shakespeare uses to make Olivia feel free, which will be very useful as a literary device to make the plot of the comedy more complicated, and to make Orsino insist to get her favour. In the beginning of the play (Act 1, scene i) we see Duke Orsino listening to his court, which is playing music. He first asks for more music to fill himself with love to feel totally depressed. In this scene music must be interpreted as our emotions; so Orsino wants to find a cure to his depression, and maybe through an excess of love (music) he can kill it.
The mother-woman role is another form of men control, because it dictates how women should idolize their children, worship their husbands, and honor their isolated but inferior positions. Kate Chopin bravely exposed an attitude of feminism to an unprepared society in her novel The Awakening. Her brilliant work of fiction was not recognized at the time because feminism had not yet become popular. Chopin defied societal assumptions of her time period and wrote the novel, The Awakening, using attitudes of characters in regard to gender, changed in the main character, imagery and Edna’s suicide to illustrate her feminist position. Society during Chopin’s time period believed women to be a weak, dependent gender whose position lay nothing above mothering and housework.
exclamation marks, this displays his emotional state and anger, giving you an accurate idea of the character. Browning has used a linear structure for the poem with flashbacks to different parts of about Fra Lippo Lippi’s life. This works as a metaphor for how the church works because even though time is moving on and forward they keep looking back into the past and using old traditional practices and views; exactly what about Fra Lippo is angered about. Sexual Imagery is used by Browning in line 196 'Oh, that white smallish female with the breasts' demonstrates how Fra Lippo thinks differently to the other monks. This kind of sexual fantasy is frowned upon by monks and the church, this circumstance helps to distinguish Fra Lippo from other members of the church.
