But there is another way of fighting for freedom without arms: we can fight with our mind” (936). Through this polysyndecton , the repetition of or signifies the need to take action. Through the rhetorical questions, women begin to compare the difficulty of peace. Woolf is trying to paint a picture of the war zone to bring an emotional connection with the audience. She writes, “A bomb drops.
But as their civilization starts to collapse, as strange echoes at night fill the sky, terror begins to reign. As the their “adventure” is far from over their only hope is to be rescued. In the novel, Lord of the Flies, William Golding uses symbolism in order to communicate that there are two competing impulses, good and evil, that exist within all humans. In the scene when Jack tells Ralph to paint his face so he can be one of “them”, Golding uses symbolism in order to communicate humans will always steal power from others in order to regain power themselves. In this scene, Ralph is at Castle Rock with Jack arguing with him in order to get Piggy’s specs back.
These lines are preceded by a soliloquy of her scolding the other witches for not including her in the downfall of Macbeth. Lady Macbeth says to her husband “But screw your courage to the sticking- place/And we’ll not fail” (1.7.66) by this she means if he can pull himself together and think with her cunning he will be able to murder the King. The Witches tell Macbeth prophecies in an attempt to very publically destroy him. Lady Macbeth lets these prophecies take root too deeply inside of her ultimately leading to her convincing her husband to command the murders of the innocent and also causing her to take her own life. Lady Macbeths bold ambition is used against her because in the era of Macbeth women’s
It was feared that communism would grow so large and overpowering that if anyone were to challenge the system, they would be punished, which is displayed in “One flew over the Cuckoo’s nest” by McMurphy’s demise. Kesey and Chief’s view of the Combine are very similar as Kesey was rebellious towards the at time President Eisenhower’s 1950’s conforming and corporate system, this being an proficient, organised and compliant society, which is very similar to the Big Nurse’s ward. Nurse Ratched’s matriarchal ran system has the power to emasculate the patients, by figuratively castrating them and stealing their power. Chief experiences his own downfall of his and other patient’s dignity, until McMurphy arrives and distorts and
Yeats' interest in Eastern Philosophy influenced many of his poems. His widely anthologized poem, "Lapis Lazuli," is about finding tranquility in chaos. The speaker begins by telling us that “the hysterical women” are disgusted with artists who are always detached, because the times demand some serious action or else they will all be obliterated. Yeats wrote this poem in 1938 just as WWII was beginning in Europe. So those women are fearing they will be become victims of the airplane and Zeppelins that were used to bomb London during WWI.
She chose to put this particular poem right in the centre of the collection because it is the most taboo poem and shows just how much men can influence women in relationships or even just for sex. A good example of this is ‘I went mad for the sex’ from ‘The Devils Wife’ shows she is with him for the sex and she’d do anything to keep getting it. The poems in the first half of the collection the women always escape from the betrayal of men take control. ‘Delilah’ and ‘Mrs Quasimodo’ are good examples of this as in ‘Delilah’ she cuts off his hair, ‘Then with deliberate, passionate hands, I cut every lock of his hair’ shows she took control of the situation and did it as a duty because his hair is what makes him strong, and without it he has nothing. Also ‘I fastened a chain to the door’ is ironic as she is trying to escape from being controlled by him yet she is ‘chaining’ herself inside the door so she cannot escape.

The character of Jack in Lord of the Flies serves to highlight the uneven cruelty and power distributed through society. His character depicts a battle between good and evil, this theme is one that was influenced by Golding's own experiences in World War two. Jack represents the breakdown in society and how the “blood thirsty”, savagery in human nature can cause the fall of man and lead to autocratic tribalism. Jack’s craving for power is made evident right from the beginning of the novel. when the boys decide that they “ought to have a chief”, Jack jumps at the chance with “simple arrogance”, and states that its because he is “chapter chorister”, and can “sing C sharp”,so in other words, for no valid reason at all.
She uses evidence of herself to explain why her troops are fighting for her. These speeches are all similar, yet different. Queen Elizabeth and Knox are similar because they both use strong phrases and words to allow the audience to grasp how they feel. For example, Knox uses the words “repugnant” and “phrenetic” to describe the idea of women bearing rule. These words make what Knox has to say, more meaningful.
Explore how the writer presents the horrors of war in ‘Not So Quiet’ The book ‘Not So Quiet…: Stepdaughters of War’ was written by Evadne Price under the pseudonym of Helen Zenna Smith. Evadne was originally approached to write a parody of All Quiet on The Western Front, Remarque’s iconic novel, she instead decided to write a war-story from the point of view of a serious woman war-worker. In this essay I will be looking at how the writer presents the horrors of war. The book is written in first person narrative, it is almost a stream of consciousness and this makes the readers feel as if they are experiencing everything with the protagonist, Helen. It opens with a harsh and unflinching description of Helen’s life as an ambulance driver in France.
