10. The tone is abandonment since Christine left Rayona to Aunt Ida without explaining anything. CHAPTER 3 1. Rayona’s life is monotonous and boring with Aunt Ida, and the two do not really know how to act with the other there so there is little interaction between them at all. 2.
Hill may have used this metaphor in order to suggest that Kipps has traveled as far as he can; he has traveled to the extent that he can go no further as there is physically no more road to travel on. The “edge of the world” is thought to be a dangerous place where no one wishes to go (if there were such a place) which could reflect on the villagers views on Eel Marsh house. Eel Marsh house is a place that was poorly maintained and Hill uses imagery of “the soil gave way to rough grass and I began to see dykes and ditches” to add a sense of lack of safety to the houses surroundings. As Kipps makes his way around the grounds it begins to give way to revel water and unstable ground, making Eel Marsh house a dangerous and unsafe place to be and Kipps starts to be concerned about his safety. “Rough grass” is used to imply that no one has visited the house for a considerable amount of time and that there is no body to maintain and care for it either because Mrs Dralow had no friends or family or because everyone was too scared which suggest the woman in black has a strong influence on the community of Criffin Grifford.
“A Sorrowful Woman” by Gail Godwin, opened with once upon a time, but this short story is far from a fairy tale. The woman is never named throughout the story, leading the reader to believe she feels she has no identity, and the fact that her family is never named either could lead one to believe there is no connection to them. In the very beginning, the husband is described as “durable, receptive, gentle; the child a tender golden three” (39), but the sight of them makes her “sad and sick” (39). As a reader, I want to know how these feelings of despise and disgust came to be. As the story unfolds, the unnamed wife becomes increasingly distant from the love of her husband and son.
The dust symbolizes accumulation of unremoved past. When the town gets free postal delivery, she alone did not let the postal service workers put a number on her house; she resisted change so much that she does not even accept her letters because she has isolated herself from the present (39).
Arriving late at the bazaar, he notices that “nearly all the stalls were closed and the greater part of the hall was in darkness” and also recognises, “a silence like that which pervades a church after service” (Joyce 114). The fact that the bazaar is almost closed and empty, means he will not be able to buy something for the girl he is infatuated with. More so, he could not buy an appropriate gift for the girl from the stalls that were still open because he didn’t have enough money. Thus, his disappointment begins as the bazaar wasn’t exotic and had no aspect of an “Eastern enchantment” (Joyce 112) as he had imagined. As the narrator continues to move around visiting the bazaar, moving from one of the stalls still opened to the next, his state of disappointment increases.
But when, because of their carelessness and laziness, ground drills and were abandoned. The army started to feel heavy to them since they started to hardly ever wear it. That negligence, and laziness, led them to asking the emperor to take away the breastplates and next the helmets. So when they went out and fought the Goths they had no protection whatsoever from the head to the chest, and were often beaten by archers. No one tried to replace the breastplates and the helmets.
B. No matter where you are, who you are, what school you are going to, what you are trying to achieve. I’m sure that you’ll find your answer in this book “I’m gifted, so are you.” III. The book is a gift from my best friend. She gave it to me when I go studying abroad with hope I’ll be ‘’gifted”.
Bronte uses negative adjectives to create the feeling of loneliness and misery. In the first paragraph Bronte starts with quite an unusual sentence. Instead of what a lot of auto biographies start with (I was born in..) she starts with, “There was no possibility of taking a walk that day.” Opening the paragraph like this makes the reader want to find out more. She then goes on to say “We had been wandering, indeed, in the leafless shrubbery for hours”. The word leafless creates the image of loss and emptiness.
She does not have any power neither in the society nor her family, thus she is led to alienation. Celie is driven into writing for expressing herself. Celie begins to write letters when she is fourteen years old, she is uneducated and the letters are addressed to god because of her father’s threat ‘You'd better not never tell nobody but God’ (Walker 1). Celie is alienated and must tell no ‘body’. Walker’s use of God allows Celie to be expressive in her writing as nobody actually sees what she writes.
