The Bat learned much in the story about himself. The story is symbolic of an artist finding their own happiness and creativity. The bat found both. The Chipmunk was a large reason that the bat didn’t give up. The Mockingbird was almost a rival to the Bat; but he accepted his art but thought his own was better.
Capitalist imagery is a key symbol used by John Cooper Clarke to describe his love for the recipient of this poem whilst also satirising the modern age of Britain: “I wanna be your vacuum cleaner Breathing in your dust” The poet, by saying that he wishes to be the recipients “vacuum cleaner” automatically brings a homely and domestic image to the readers mind, perhaps suggesting that he is longing for a life and a home together with the addressee. This makes it a very useful symbol for Cooper Clarke as he uses it to express the profundity of his love. This is supported by the alliteration of the soft ‘c’ sound in the line, insinuating a feeling of comfort and security for the couple. As a modern audience, this is the image that is brought to mind for us but in terms of the context of production and Cooper Clarke’s punk audience in the 1970’s, this line would have brought a different feeling to light. A “vacuum cleaner” would be seen as symbol for capitalist society and the ideal of normality that Cooper Clarke’s audience would be fighting by dressing as they did or listening to the music and poetry that they did.
In the same manner that a song on the radio can remind someone of a time in their life, an object in a story can help someone to further understand what is taking place. This method of hidden messages through inanimate objects is symbolism, a technique that is used countless times in the novel Lord of the Flies by William Golding. Although much of the symbolism that appears in this story is cryptic in meaning, one case of symbolism in this book really stands out. The white conch shell, being symbolic of the state of civilization on the island, helps to display the beginning of a mini-civilization, the slow deterioration of this civilization, and finally the extinction of all civilization on the island. With the early discovery of the conch comes the first symbolic use of the shell, as it before all else symbolizes the rise of civilization on the island.
The poets’ presentation of animals in The Cockroach and Pike The poem The Cockroach can be interpreted in two ways. The first, more obvious meaning is that the poet is watching a cockroach “pace” around the floor. However after a closer analysis the reader understands that the poet uses the “giant” cockroach as a metaphor to describe himself and his life. Through his choice of structure, language and various literary devices, the poet can convey his message to the readers effectively and shape their thoughts and reactions on the subject. The poem is written in the form of a sonnet.
Ellie should begin her campaign for the bees on the most populated community in the world – the social media community. But first she must create a strong and well-filmed movie to elaborate and spread awareness to the masses. We want people to not only watch the ‘advertisement,’ but also produce a reaction strong enough to compel each individual to help support the cause. One of the most effective ways to generate this response is to shape the ad around the shock value of the potential absence of honeybees in our environment. Although Ellie can add her own touch, it is crucial that the film begin with a powerful statement such as “Imagine Life without Fruit”… or whichever basic food group or product that people need for survival would produce the most effect in Bloomington.
Belonging is inevitable, and everywhere we go whether we notice it or not it is a prominent feature. Authors will exploit this core human attribute to create interest in the readers, evoke emotions and to explore the basics of human life. What does belonging mean to you? An example of this belonging is found in both Arthur Miller’s The Crucible and William Shakespeare’s Othello. In both of these plays, the playwrights have manipulated the concept of belonging and explored the belonging of humans to create strong characters in their texts.
Noble also showed me through the article how smart Shakespeare was by using comedy in “Titus Andronicus” right before some most violent scenes, so the audience would not get discomfort or turn off by seeing their normal practices being depicted on stage My favorite part of Noble’s essay is how he breaks down the parallel between Titus and Oswald Caroll recipe for human flesh. It let me, as a reader; understand how much research Shakespeare must have gone through to make sure his play matched up with medicinal cannibalism views. The explicit language of how cannibals cooked the human flesh and believed that eating humans could be therapeutic was very intriguing. Through reading this essay I have gained a greater appreciation for Shakespeare writing and “Titus Andronicus” as a play. Noble truly opened my eyes to a new world I never knew existed, medicinal cannibalism.

Likewise, in 2081, Harrison Bergeron is placed in prison and death-sentenced for promoting individuality and being very intelligent. Both governments condition people to associate intelligence with danger because it can take complete equality away and ultimately challenge the government’s authority. The idea of community in both worlds is expressed differently, however, because of the effectiveness and stylistic ways of the societies. In Brave New World, the community is run with a social caste system and one is born with a social standing depending on their physical and mental ability. Depending on their manipulated characteristics, they are placed with a job to suit
When the patients start to follow the ways of McMurphy, they start to recognize that he is an excellent guide in attaining individuality. One Flew over the Cuckoo’s Nest reveals that a true leader empowers his followers and gives them strength, rather than taking that strength away. During most of the group therapy sessions, the patients have a small window of time to express their feelings or reveal something that has been on their mind constantly. One session in specific, McMurphy proposes and idea to watch TV in the afternoon and do the cleaning chores in the night because the World Series is on and he wants to watch it.
