Examples Of Imagery In Macbeth
The use of imagery invokes pictures with the use of all five senses. The readers can understand the
emotions of the characters and feel empathy. Symbols are used to represent ideas, and to connect
very different topics. There are various examples of imagery and symbolism throughout this scene.
"Here's the smell of the blood still. All the perfumes of Arabia will not sweeten this little hand." This
quote is an example of literal imagery, because it allows the readers to imagine the smell of blood
that Lady Macbeth is trying to rid her hand of. By saying that no perfume can take the smell away,
Shakespeare gives readers a vivid experience that appeals directly to their sense of smell. This quote
is also a hyperbole and displays figurative ... Show more content on Helpwriting.net ...
While unconscious she confesses to all of her crimes. The Superego and the Id clash to gain control
on Lady Macbeth. The fight between her morals, values, and ambitions are evident throughout the
play, but her mental instability is clearly shown in this scene.
"What need we fear who knows it, when none can call our power to account?" This quote shows the
struggle between the Id and Superego. Lady Macbeth worries that someone will find about their
crimes, and fears the punishment, but at the same time, she believes that there is no one who can
oppose their power, so she needn't fear. The Superego is her fear of punishment for their
wrongdoings because she knows it's a grave crime. The Id is her pride on being the queen and
having no one to oppose them. She believes that as long as they stay in power, no one can reveal
their dark deeds.
"What's done cannot be undone." This shows Lady Macbeth's guilt on killing so many people, to
achieve her desires. She understands that she cannot right her mistakes, and her hands will forever
be stained. By thinking this way, she deepens her guilt. Her behavior and personality is severely
affected, as she starts sleepwalking, and becomes depressed and remorseful. This shows how her

Theme Of Sensory Evidence In The Duchess Of Malfi
The Duchess of Malfi by John Webster is a tragic play, which deals with love, power, and madness.
The madness derives from the use of sensory evidence. In many cases, Webster uses sensory
evidence to push his characters to the limit of their own mind. The concept of sensory experience is
a way to grab your readers attention while using the five senses to do so. Webster employs this
concept in ways that progress the plot. However, it causes much trouble for most of the characters,
especially The Duchess herself. Although there could be many factors that affect the death of the
Duchess, the use of the sensory experience is the most evident. We can easily observe this by her
marriage to Antonio, her relationship with Bosola, and her problems with Ferdinand. To begin, a
crucial conversation shapes the course of the play in a subtle but immense way. In Act 1, scene 3,
The Cardinal and Ferdinand insist that The Duchess does not remarry after the death of her husband.
However, they are not aware that the Duchess is planning on marrying Antonio, her old steward.
The following citation shows Ferdinand's thought of those who remarry. "Marry! They are most
luxurious/will wed twice." (John Webster, Act 1, scene 3, line 6–7) His comment uses the word
"Luxurious" which means lecherous. Ferdinand is saying that widows that remarry are driven by an
excessive desire for sexual relations and nothing more. After both brothers have spoken of their
thoughts on the matter, The Duchess assures

The End Of The Dark Passage Essay
At the end of the dark passage was a room identical to the secret alcove in his court. For all of
Jingyan's trepidation and anticipation, nothing happened. He kept a hand on the wall and followed
the sound of Su Zhe's footfall through the unobstructed passage until dimming sunlight split the
darkness. They exited into a crumbling structure with moldy beams and tangled spider webs, a
deserted court with a backdoor into the mountains that rose on the east border of Hua. Jingyan
followed Su Zhe through a grassy meadow and into a forest. Sometime in the middle of their walk,
the last rays of the sun slinked behind the horizon and left them in the shadows of the gnarled oak
trees. Twigs and fallen leaves crunched under his boot as Jingyan picked his way through the damp
moss of the forest path, dodging sagged branches and stepping over surface roots. The wind was
beginning to pick up, gently rustling the thick, dark green leaves of the shrubs nearby. Su Zhe
walked on his right, body obscured by his oversized cloak. "Don 't you have anything to say to me?"
Jingyan 's question broke the silence that 'd hung about since the hidden corridor was revealed.
"When you follow me without a question or comment," said Su Zhe. "Was it trust?" Jingyan glanced

Analysis Of Flying By Alice Miller
"Flying," by Alice Miller tells the story of woman reminiscing on the time that her cousin taught her
how to fly when they were kids. It begins with the main character, Allie, flying in the air with her
cousin, Mack, when she was six years old. Allie has many questions and Mack tells her that all boys
can fly and instructs her to not tell anyone that she knows this secret. He also tells her not to ever try
to fly without him and compares this secret to the myth about Prometheus giving the God's fire to
man and being punished for it. As the years went by, Allie wonders if she would ever fly again and
even doubts if the memory was real. She becomes a wife and a mother to two sons and a daughter
but still wonders if flying is possible. One night, she decides to test her memory and tries to fly out
of her backyard. She slowly ascends just as she did when she was young but even higher. Over the
next few days, her urge to fly again grows. One night, she sneaks into her children's room and picks
up her daughter to take her outside and show her how to fly. The story ends with Allie telling her
daughter to promise not to tell the boys what she is about to experience and excitement building in
Allie for her daughter. The central idea of this story is the pursuit of satisfaction never ends. Most

There were two things I took away from the article, the first being finding out the root cause of
where self–concept stemmed from. For example, according to the article self–concept is first shaped
by our mother; we respond back with decisions or judgments based on our initial experiences from
our first caregiver. "A child who had an unresponsive mother will act obnoxious or withdrawn so
that people will want to keep their distance. Those with consistently responsive mothers are

Essay about What it means to be human

"The common outcry, which is justly made on behalf of human rights – for example, the right to

Let me go with him. ( 1.3. 248–259).
Now, in John Gunther's novel, Death Be Not Proud, this type of love is family based. Johnny's love
is strong and death will not tear his family apart. " Nobody else was in the room, and Johnny looked
straight at him. 'Do my parents know this? How shall we break it to them?' Then, some months later,
when he seemed to be getting better, he felt the edge of bone next to the flap in the skull wound, and
looked questioningly and happily at the doctor–– a different doctor–– then attending him. The
doctor was pleased because the bone appeared to be growing back, but with a crying lack of tact he
told Johnny, 'Oh, yes... it's growing... but in the wrong direction, the wrong way.' Johnny controlled
himself and said nothing until the doctor left the room. His face had gone white and he was sick
with sudden worry and harsh disappointment. Then he murmured to me, 'Better not tell Mother it's
growing wrong.'" (Gunther 5). Regardless of Johnny's illness, Johnny manages to love his family
and enjoy life as much as possible.

The Central Theme Of Secrecy In Lanval By Marie De France
Some people keep secrets in order to keep the peace, to keep the happiness, and to keep others safe.
There are many people in the world who feel that keeping a secret is wrong or may feel disrespected

the influence secrets have on people. Medieval author, Marie De France, wrote the story of Lanval

He is so consumed by keeping his secret safe; his loved ones are murdered as a result. For example,
Henry Clervel has his life taken as an outcome of Victor's betrayal to the creature. Victor's failure to
warn Henry creates increasing guilt which continues until the death of Elizabeth. He thinks of
himself instead of logically warning his wife of the monster's dangerous threats, "I shall be with you
on your wedding–night." (176) Right until Victor's death, science is viewed as the only way of
knowledge, as quoted, "the more fully I entered into the science, the more exclusively I pursued it
for its own sake." (77) This knowledge is ultimately used against him; the monster knows what
Victor is capable of and uses his ability of creating life as a threat to make a new creature to acquaint
the monster. As Victor contemplates this idea, he is also threatened by the possibility of new life
being created, "... a race of devils would be propagated upon the earth" (174) which dictate his
actions in destroying the wife of the creature. Knowledge ultimately consumes Victor. The power of
knowledge is portrayed in the monster because of his ability in absorbing intelligence from the
environment and applying it to the applicable situations. Victor built the creature as an overgrown,

Hooper has suffered a great deal for the remainder of his life. Although the minister never explained
why he wore it, there was much speculation as to why he did. Adultery, disloyalty, addiction, and
alcoholism were just some speculations as to the secret sin he was paying penance for. The black
veil has power over Mr. Hooper because he chose to conceal his sin rather than show his fiancee
before he lost her. This also tells us that Mr. Hooper is a man of his word because even on his
deathbed, the black veil remained on his face. The black veil was a penance to Mr. Hooper because
he wore it to show his secret sin and that he acknowledged it rather than discarding it like most of
the parishioners did. This united him with the lower class and criminals because they felt like
minister harper was on their side because it sowed his imperfections. Yet at the same time, the close
bond he had with his parishes was basically lost. The black veil also gave this eerie aura to Mr.
Hooper and it made his sermons more powerful to the parishioners who took all his sermons to

Reflection On Shambhala Meditation
Reflection on Shambhala Meditation A couple weeks ago, while perusing the web for fun date night
ideas, I accidentally stumbled upon the official website for the Asheville Shambhala Center. The

tradition of Shambhala, a spiritual and philosophical school akin but not equivalent to buddhism.
Although I certainly couldn't picture dragging my boo to sit silently for four hours on a hardwood

dying to run to my car and privately cackle about the word tentacle like a ten year old, I recognized
how disrespectful my thought process was. I was in the presence of a woman sharing a sacred
practice used to connect to the divine, cracking up about a single word poorly suited to the context
of the American south. It reminded me of our discussion about Sundiata concerning the sacred and
the supernatural. To my horror, the practice of Shambhala was so foreign to me, after one awkward
moment my brain subconsciously filed Shambhala under the "strange hybrid of eastern and western
practices attempting to appeal to unsatisfied white folks while retaining its exotic appeal" category,
and discarded the spiritual significance of the practice entirely. After reflecting, I realized that the
way I categorized Shambhala was disgustingly riddled with egotistical, American–first bias, white–

Analysis Of Totilla Soup
An Analysis of Tortilla Soup Tortilla Soup is a film that does more than give the viewer a good
feeling. Tortilla Soup is a film with many uplifting qualities that the viewer can relate. The opening
scene draws the viewer in as the main protagonists, Martin Naranjo played by Hector Elizondo,
prepares a large meal with many different dishes for his family. The way that Naranjo manipulates
the kitchen cutlery demonstrates that he is more than a cook. His skill demonstrates that he is a fine
chef. The opening scene of Naranjo preparing the meal is very relaxing to watch his culinary skills
at work. It was interesting that one of the dishes was a melon blossom soup. The author had never
heard of or observed this dish being served, so it required some investigation. Tortilla Soup is an
enjoyable film that introduces romance and comedy during the preparation and sharing of a special
meal. This film has many protagonists. The main protagonist is Martin Naranjo. He is an
accomplished chef who is a widower. He lives with his three adult daughters who are very beautiful,
but remain single. Naranjo lost his wife approximately ten years prior to the setting of the film.
Since then he has assumed the role of father and mother. Naranjo works as a chef fulfilling is
fatherly role and he also does all of the cooking, cleaning and laundry fulfilling his motherly role.
Naranjo maintains that on every Sunday, the family shares a meal to share their life experiences of
the week with each other. The meal seems to be a tradition in that family that has been a part of the
family's ritual prior to the passing of the mother. Some of the daughters find the meal to be more of
a punishment than an enjoyment. Martin for most of the film has lost his ability to taste the flavor in
the food he creates. He relies at work upon his best friend and fellow chef, Gomez played by Julio
Mechoso, for taste. Martin is the main protagonist as he demonstrates the most change. He lets go of
his adult daughters, one at a time while gaining two more daughters, Eden the daughter of his much
younger bride than he and his unborn child with the same, Yolanda. Another protagonist of the film

An Analysis Of Stephen Dobyns 'Deceptions'
Secrets are precious vessels, travelling from a person's heart, out of their mouth, and into another's
ear. But sometimes, due to misplaced trust, the vessels do not stay sealed, or protected, as they
should be. Rather, they are exposed to the masses, and that person's heart is one display for all to see
and judge and interpret. Poems are the secrets of a poet's heart. When a poet writes, it is not intended
for an audience. Rather, it comes from a private place that can no longer be suppressed. There is an
overwhelming desire to tell, to reveal, that leads a poet to paper. The paper serves as a blank space
where they can express their inner desires, fears, or experiences without worrying about the
judgment of others. Once a poem is finished, ... Show more content on Helpwriting.net ...

It is not just Young Charlie living in a dream, for while Old Charlie is accusing Young Charlie of
this, he himself presides in a state of illusions. He just sees things from the opposite angle; for him,
"good" is a mask for evil and reality lies in a hellish place, almost the exact binary opposition to
Young Charlie's small town world. In fact, the whole family is separately locked in their own dream
world; this is apparent when Charlie comes to town and things are obviously amiss. There are
undeniable clues that Charlie is hiding something that the family remains oblivious to. The fact that

Sensory Deprivation Experiments Have Been Around Since The...
Sensory Deprivation experiments have been around since the early 1900 's. People have always
curious to know what happens if you take away the five essential human senses. Our senses help us
make sense of in the insane, fast paced, stressed world we live in. Not having one of our senses can
lead to the process of learning how to live comfortably without that certain input of senses. While
having none of the senses can lead to creating your own world by hallucinating. Without having any
of the senses, can you get in contact with the supernatural? One experiment suggests that it is
possible depending on the person. Is it possible that depriving all of the senses from a person could
be relaxing to some? Yes, having a break from the world can help relieve stress. What happens if
you just take away one of the main senses from a human? It can lead to fully understanding how
lucky we are to experience the world with each of our senses.
What would it be like to not be able to hear, see, touch, taste and smell? That is the question that
scientists have been trying to answer with Sensory Deprivation experiments throughout the years.

The relationship between siblings is a critical relationship. "The sibling relationship is one of the
longest lasting relationships in most people's lives and one of the most prevalent" (Avidan, p21).
The sibling relationship has many delicate and intricate issues like conflicts, rivalry, despite these
negative impacts this relationship is one of the closest relationships. The siblings help one another
and give emotional support when it is needed. The quality of sibling kinship is closely associated
with social development and the psychological characteristics of the children. Also, in this aspect it

Specifically, Tan uses sisterhood as a structure for the representation and regulation of cultural
differences among women. The Hundred Secret Senses does not offer an admired development of
sisterhood but rather gives a refined investigation of the philosophy of sisterhood and stresses the
impact of the sister relationship in creating ethnic consciousness and identity. For Tan, sisterhood
envelops biological bonding as well as poignant cultural heritage. The bond between the two half
sisters in The Hundred Secret Senses is loaded with equivocalness created by synchronous
sentiments of equality and difference. Psychologically, Olivia, the sister who typifies the ethnic
other, has been perceived as a fundamental piece of the American self. The key occasions in her
psychological development her isolation from Simon, her refusal of her heritage and rejection of her
sister, her guiltiness, her developing valuation for Chinese culture, and her longings towards
meaningful kinships are all associated with her sister Kwan and their advancing relationship. Kwan
turns out to be, in the expressions of Downing, an oblivious manual for Olivia's trip toward self and

Next Death speaks of being "taught by a teacher who knows the Self and Brahman as one, a man
leaves vain theory behind and attains to truth." This I find very interesting because, I to believe that
all forms of life are different facets of the large diamond that Hindu's would call Brahman. Knowing
this is one of the first things that you must realize, as you begin your path to enlightenment. The
Hindu idea of the Self, being separate from the body, doesn't seem to be that hard of an idea to
grasp. The human body is simply the form that the Self has been given to take in this little bleep of
time. The mind though has a tendency to be overtaken by the senses and forgets the true Self. To
find ones true Self again one must follow the path of meditation. OM is Brahman, know this and any
man can obtain his desires. OM is the highest symbol, the supreme syllable. Just hearing this sound
brings about a feeling of peace and serenity. What is it about OM that gives me that feeling? I can't
be sure I know that the deep vibrating brings calm but beyond that I can't explain it. With the help of
OM and meditation one can free oneself from desire, with his mind and senses purified, he beholds
the glory of the Self and is without sorrow. It also talks about the Self being all–pervading and
supreme, which to me makes perfect sense it is simply just reinforcing the

How Literature Enhances our Perceptions Essay
Jeremy Hsu, Luis Urrea, and E.B. White have different writing credentials: one is a science
journalist, one a creative writing professor, the other an essayist. Although from different
backgrounds, each has explored the power of literature. Through Hsu's "The Secrets of
Storytelling", "Life is An Act of Literary Creation" by Urrea and E.B. White's pieces in Essays of
E.B. White, each author shows how literature is used to enhance our perceptions of the world around
us, creating a sense of community. "The Secrets of Storytelling" explores why humans love stories

home," (Urrea). In order to light this fire, he also learns "that [he has to go] into the world and [pay]
attention" (Urrea). Paying attention to details and to the small things in the world is what brings our
world together. White's body of work synthesizes the ideas that Hsu and Urrea find so important in
literature. The importance of community is exemplified in "Death of a Pig" and "Home–Coming"
through the telephone system: "There is never any identification needed on a country phone; the
person on the other end knows who is talking by the sound of the voice and by the character of the
question" (White 21) and "the entire New England Telephone & Telegraph Co. deserves to be shut
up in a closet for having saddled us with dials and deprived us of our beloved operators, who used to
know where everybody was and just what to do about everything" (White 9). By taking note of
small things around him, like the "cast of characters [he] depend[s] on" outside of his home on

This is known as the spiritual embryonic stage and represents the intellectual development of the
child. The child's personality unfolds and a unique human being emerges. This child unconsciously
acquires his/her basic abilities i.e. gain control of hands, walk, talk etc and tries to be independent.
Around three the child moves onto the next stage i.e. social embryonic. Here the child learns
consciously becoming aware of the people around hence he/she becomes socialised. The child is
able to exist independently, develops an identity/personality and becomes sensitive to people around
him/her. The social aspects of life such as culture, friendships etc are highlighted. The child begins
to understand that he/she belongs to a unit be it family or friends at school. After being bombarded
with his/her environment the child is enthusiastic and driven by impulses during this adjustment.
According to Montessori, adjustment doesn't occur unaided, there seems to be a perfect time frame
for optimal adjustment to occur. She says "A child learns to adjust himself and make acquisitions in
his sensitive periods" (Montessori, 2007b, Ch7, p40). A sensitive period relates to the child's mental

Archetypes In Fifth Business
Fifth Business by Robertson Davies explores the theme of Psychology through several characters.
Each character has a certain archetype which will affect how they think, showing different
psychological effects. Specifically, the archetypes mentioned are the introverted, the confidant, the
egotist, and the saint. These four archetypes correlate to being the side character, the secret keeper,
the self–absorbed brat, or the painfully charitable woman respectively. Davies attempts to explore
the relation between an archetype and the psychology behind it.

the protagonist, and narrator. Typically, all characters have their own problems, traumas, and

Dempster, also known as Mary Dempster, is a typical example of the sacred feminine. Her presence
explains why Dunstan is conflicted throughout his life. Through Dunstan's point of view, Mrs.
Dempster is a saint. Mrs. Dempster is seen through rose coloured glasses as Dunstan sees her
differently than what one would normally see. In Dunstan's eyes, she is capable of miracles, to
which he names three. The miracles Dunstan refers to consists of saving his "dead" brother Willie,
Dunstan's memory of her face on the battlefield of WWI, and the transformation of Joel; the
philanthropist who would have been a rapist. The third miracle only happened because she was
willing to have intercourse with a vagrant solely because "he wanted it so bad." Her archetype leads
to her being painfully giving, often giving what any normal person would not. Dunstan is constantly
conflicted by Mrs. Dempster's presence, as he believes that she is a saint. Dunstan has grown too
attached to her, enough for her to be considered a mother figure. Dunstan is constantly reminded of
the snowball thrown by Boy that leads to the accidental premature birth of her child, Paul. Knowing
this, Dunstan lives knowing exactly how this happened and is conflicted from her presence.
Although this archetype is viewed only through Dunstan's eyes, it is extremely visible. Mrs.

The Tell Tale Heart Analysis
1.Why do you think Poe has set his story at night time, in the night?
The Tell Tale Heart talks about a neurotic nameless narrator claiming to be sane by how cunningly
he sneaks into the old man's room, but one night he was caught by the old man and his "vulture
eyes", so the narrator killed him . Therefore night time has a direct connection with the plot of the
story, our unreliable narrator would sneak into the chamber of the old man every night to shine a
lantern onto his eye. Another element could be to instill fear into readers' minds, night time is
symbolized by darkness and sins, a perfect time for a vicious murder to be committed.
2.How does the writer let us know that this is an unreliable narrator telling the story?
A unreliable narrator is a character whose telling of story isn't completely credible due to problems
with the character's mental state. First, throughout the book our narrator tell us his story almost in a
satirical sense, "calmly" as if it was something casual.
The disease had sharpened my senses ––not destroyed ––not dulled them. Above all was the sense
of hearing acute. I heard all things in the heaven and in the earth. I heard many things in hell. How,
then, am I mad?
Second, it's clear that our character suffers from schizophrenia and paranoia, his deluded mind made
him believe that he has special powers. It also shows how paranoid he is, when a person is paranoid
they're more sensitive to their surrounding. At the end, when he a loud noise kept

Sylvy seems to come to her senses in the twelfth hour when she climbs high into the trees early one
morning to see the white heron fly in ever so close. It was as though their was a kinship between the
two, an understanding. Because of this special feeling for the bird, Sylvy could not succumb to the
hunter's desire for knowledge of the nest and never divulged the secret.
May Bartram in the &quot;Beast in the Jungle&quot; contrasts Sylvy quite interestingly she is
assumed to be in her twenties and time is starting to pass faster making the need for a man in her life
more immanent with each passing day.
Suddenly one day, the right time, the right place, John Marcher enters her life forever. Just as the
hunter offered bribery of money in exchange for help in securing the heron, John Marcher offered
his presence in exchange for every ounce of self May Bartram would give. To the reader, this was
not so attractive or tempting but to May, in consideration of the alternative, John Marcher became an
obsession, even a career. Just as Sylvy would daydream, surely May would dream also, altering her
real existence, feeding on her infatuation. Otherwise, the relationship, left to John Marcher, would

What makes people want to guard their secrets so close to their hearts? What lengths would people
go to to protect their secrets? Everybody has knowledge and experiences close to their hearts that
they would rather not share with the world, for fear of being judged or for fear of being exposed.
Sometimes, though, a secret still gets out regardless of the measures taken to ensure its demise, and

Voluntary Memory In Edmund Wilson's An Old Stone House
." He goes on to explain that unlike voluntary memory, a madeleine moment is dependent on
chance. Furthermore, Proust's "madeleine experience initiated for him a whole chain of association,
and from this he achieved the eventual restoration of an entire vanished world." While voluntary
memory can help develop an informal timeline of events along with major details such as location,
involuntary memory fills in the gaps to a greater extent or even uncovers a different timeline while
restoring feelings and senses connected to the recollection. This type of memory is simulated by
something as simple as a pastry, or in Edmund Wilson's case, a window. In "An Old Stone House",
Wilson uses voluntary memory to recollect the history and major details of his childhood home.
Furthermore, his journey back to this childhood home is what triggers his involuntary memory.
Sitting on a train to Talcottville, Wilson narrates, "As I go north for the first time in years... I look
out through the dirt–yellowed double pane and remember how once, as a child, I had felt thwarted
till I had gotten the windows up so that there should be nothing between me and the widening
pastures." Suddenly, when submersed in a familiar setting, Wilson remembers how he felt as a boy
on the same train. The window reveals to Wilson exactly how he felt decades ago, thus restoring a

How Secrecy is Presented in The Millers Tale Essay
How Secrecy is Presented in The Miller's Tale
Secrecy is a prominent theme in The Miller's Tale and Chaucer uses it to not only make the tale

way that secrecy is presented and what effects it has will be discussed.
Chaucer introduces the reader to secrecy at the beginning of the tale in The Miller's Prologue,
indicating its importance, 'An housbande shal not been inqusitif of Goddes privetee,' and this
immediately makes the reader assume that at least one of the characters will in fact be inquisitive of
'Goddes privetee' and that there will be secrets in The Miller's Tale.

This also applies to Alison, but secrecy is initiated in an indirect manner. Chaucer describes her as a
'hoord of apples leyd in hey or heeth', making it unambiguous that there is something 'secret' about
Alison.
But the secrecy that Chaucer presents in Alison and Absolon are not the same as the secrecy that he
presents in Nicholas, this shows that these two characters are not as 'deep' in personality as
Nicholas, this can also be proven by the way that Chaucer gives Alison and
Absolon extensive physical description thus making no secret of their vanity and superficiality.
The element of secrecy is maintained throughout the tale and Chaucer makes secrets and secrecy
dominate the relationships between the characters. The most palpable been Nicolas and Alison. The
actions in their first encounter are described as 'prively' and this adds to the bawdiness of their
relationship. Alison also says 'That but ye waite wel and been privee' and this line makes it clear to
the reader that there is and will be more deceit in the tale.
Alison and John's relationship is not only surrounded by possession but also secrecy, and even

where they interact fully, the way that the plan is concocted by Alison and Nicholas, in which there

throughout the decades have the chance to demonstrate their freedom of expression, and as well as
using their imagination to conduct dramatic plots with compelling characters. In particular, there is
one specific literary form that expresses the author's mood, tone and profound messages, in a way
that is rhythmic, allegorical and visually creative pertaining to the human senses. In this case, the
form of poetry matches with the mentioned criteria, from its promising structural styles, such as
limericks and haikus, as well as its repetitive alliteration that attracts readers to recite the poems, in
an emotional manner. It is a fact that poetry is also used to enhance the author's theme, according to
many descriptive literary techniques, such as similes, personification and symbolism. In particular,
the theme of love can be portrayed in various meanings and visual representations, according to
each author's contrasting perspective. Specifically, there are three poems that briefly describe three
perceptions of love, whether it can be prominent in regards to the loss of virginity, the appreciation

Analysis Of Flying By Alice Miller
"Flying," by Alice Miller is a complex story about a woman named Allie, who reminisces about a
time spent when her cousin Mack taught her to fly when she was just a young girl. On different
occasions when Mack visited, he would show her how to do new things. As Allie grew up she found
herself thinking of the secret that Mack shared with her and how he told her not to tell anyone or she
may get hurt. Allie longed for the feeling of flying, if she could just reach out and talk to Mack but
too much time had passed. She dreams of flying in her sleep, not for long periods of time, but just
enough to embrace that feeling she had years ago. She wonders if many people have experienced
flying the way that she has and if she could fly by herself without Mack. One day, Allie tries to fly
on her own and succeeds, soaring higher than she did with Mack. Before Allie knew it, she was
flying through the clouds and around town. Now that Allie has experienced the feeling of flying
again, more than ever she wanted to share with her kids. One night after the children were asleep she
wanted to share her secret with her boys but instead chose her daughter. Miller suggests that when a
person is afraid of doing something on their own, sometimes it just takes a little bit of courage to
step out and let go of the things that could be holding a person back. Allie appears to be a lonely
person, although married and with three children of her own. She has no one that she can share her

One of literatures greatest quality is allowing the reader's mind to uncover subliminal messages in
an attempt to form their own understandings and ideas. Perhaps, this particular process is commonly

aspect into their works, this essay focuses on a specific parable written by Nathaniel Hawthorne

In this parable, Mr. Hooper gives an invisible element in sin a physical appearance in the black veil
which now makes his sin a connection between himself, God, and the townspeople. It is apparent
that Mr. Hooper is dealing with some sort of internal conflict and his way of confronting his issue is
by covering his face from everyone with the black veil.
Lastly, there are several themes in The Minister's Black Veil relating to topics including sin, guilt,
fear, and judgment. The first theme focuses on people's reaction to change. Soon after Mr. Hooper
covers his face, people secluded themselves from him and gave him bewildered stares even after he
showed them courtesy. Likewise, his wife Elizabeth left him after she failed to persuade him to
abandon the black veil. The narrator also explains how Mr. Hooper created a group of converts as
well as how people at their deathbed would not take their last breath until they received consolation
from Mr. Hooper. Strangers began to travel from long distances just to hear his sermons and gaze at
his figure. Another theme found in The Minister's Black Veil is that people fear what they do not
know and do not understand. The mystery of the black veil perhaps was the biggest thing that
intimidated the townspeople. Mr. Hooper is overcome with the same horror as the townspeople
when he catches a glimpse of himself. In an attempt to solve the mystery of the black veil, the

The Goodness Of Matt Kaizer Character Analysis
Matt Kaizer, the protagonist in Avi's short story "The Goodness of Matt Kaizer," is a 6th grader who
develops a new perspective on himself as a person. After being told his entire life to act good like
his father, Matt Kaizer now struggles to find himself; he turns to be unlike his father and becomes a
daredevil. However, a dare to visiting a dying man leads him to see the goodness in himself. After
visiting Mr.Bataky, Matt's perspective of himself begins to change.
"The Goodness of Matt Kaizer" begins with Matt as insecure and heartless. He attempts to change
the image that everyone expects of him due to his father's reputation. Early in the story, Matt Kaizer
was insecure; he tried to do anything that would help him fit in. Reverend Kaizer, Matt's father, is
known as an upstanding member in the community. He is a well–respected man and Matt is adamant
to be unlike him. Because Matt and his father converse, Matt's insecurities are revealed, "'Matt, I do
believe that there is goodness in everyone. That goes for you too'... 'I'm not good' Matt insisted...
'Long as my friends dare me to do bad things, I'll do them'" (Avi 36). Matt Kaizer is insecure about
how others perceive him, since he is the son of a minister. Matt Kaizer would have taken on any
dare that his friends give him. No matter how deplorable it would seem, he would take it as he is
desperate to not to be as his father's son. He is insecure about the way people perceive him as a
reverend's son, because a large weight rest on his shoulders to be good. He surrounds himself with
bad children; he hoped that they will be a poor influence on him. Likewise, Matt Kaizer is heartless
throughout the beginning of the story. While he takes a dare to visit an alcoholic on the verge of
death, his lack of feelings is uncovered, "'My mother said that he may die at any moment.' Mary
Beth informed us... 'Who cut the cheese?' he said with a grin" (Avi 42–43). The insensitive remark
Matt spoke about Mary Beth's household suggests he does not care about how she must be feeling.
He never cares about the people around him, because he desires to be unlike his kind father in every

all about ONE thing? Bonding. The secret of happiness is explained perfectly in the stimulating
voice of Masami Sato in the excerpt of her book, ONE.
What are we trying to find out?
There are many things we do in our life.
However, have we ever wondered why we do what we do? What are we actually looking for?
The world is a confluence of millions of people of all continents, races, religions, and ideologies,
doing different things. They look different and also act in different ways. All of us have different
interests and each have a different viewpoint. We converse differently using different languages. We
have different emotions and desires.
Still, if there could be ONE thing that we are ALL trying to get, what would that thing be?
While I journeyed all over the world, I asked people a seemingly straightforward question, "What
would you like to achieve in your life? What do you really want?"
At first, it seemed everyone was looking for different things as they randomly said, "Good job",
"My own house", "A nice partner", "A

INTRODUCTION Imagine you are watching a group of Hawaiian women dancing to soft and
filling ukulele music. Your Hawaiian friend, watching with you, exclaimed, "What a beautiful
story!" You keep staring but neither see nor hear any story. You merely hear a pleasant melody and
see some women waving their arms and wiggling. As your friend explains the meaning of each
dance movements you begin to recognize a charming story about the wind. Obviously, the dancers
never change their dance movements. Why did your perception of the Hawaiian dancers change?
This is what you called perception. You perceive sensory inputs giving a meaningful ... Show more

Information from the outside world comes through our senses. The information is then interpreted,
and this interpretation gives meaning to what is sensed. For example, when you hear your alarm
clock, the actual sound you hear is the sensation. How you construe the meaning of the alarm is your
interpretation. If it is 7 a.m. on a weekday, you would probably interpret the alarm as a signal to get
moving and begin the day. However, the same alarm may have a different meaning on a holiday.
You might perceive yourself as an absurd for setting the alarm, or you might snicker at the alarm
and roll over. In both instances, the sensation (the ring) was the same, but your interpretation
changed because of other factors.
The process of interpreting or giving meaning to the stimulus received by the senses. The stimulus

Hidden Text In Morrison's Jazz Essay
In an essay that discusses Toni Morrison's authorial voice and her deconstruction of Western realist
epistemology Susan Sniader Lanser focuses on the two areas that Morrison highlights in her
depiction of human life and behaviour – the inexplicable, and the unknowable. The first revolves
around the idea that characters and events cannot be explained with certainty because it is
"impossible to assign causes to effects or to delineate clear boundaries of responsibility" (Lanser
131); besides, human behaviour "remains only partially amenable to explanatory forms" (Lanser
132). The unknowable, meanwhile, has to do with the inarticulable or "what realism has designated
non–existent or impossible" (Lanser 133). On the one hand the inexplicable ... Show more content

The diction and syntax accentuate the paradoxical and the strange:
Sth, I know that woman. She used to live with a flock of birds on Lenox Avenue. Know her
husband, too. He fell for an eighteen–year–old girl with one of those deepdown, spooky loves that
made him so sad and happy he shot her just to keep the feeling going. When the woman, her name is
Violet, went to the funeral to see the girl and to cut her dead face they threw her to the floor and out
of the church. She ran, then, through all that snow, and when she got back to her apartment she took
the birds from their cages and set them out the windows to freeze or fly, including the parrot that
said, "I love you." (3)
Near the end of the novel the narrator realises the limitations in the depiction of character and event:
Something is missing there. Something rogue. Something else you have to figure in before you can
figure it out. (228)
The attempt to delineate responsibility and blame leads ultimately to an admission of helplessness.
The narrator remarks:
I missed the people altogether.... Now it's clear why they contradicted me at every turn... They knew
how little I could be counted on.... That when I invented stories about them – and doing it seemed to
me so fine – I was completely in their hands.... Busy, they were, busy being original, complicated,
changeable – human, I guess you'd say, while I

Examples Of Imagery In Macbeth

  • 1. Examples Of Imagery In Macbeth The use of imagery invokes pictures with the use of all five senses. The readers can understand the emotions of the characters and feel empathy. Symbols are used to represent ideas, and to connect very different topics. There are various examples of imagery and symbolism throughout this scene. "Here's the smell of the blood still. All the perfumes of Arabia will not sweeten this little hand." This quote is an example of literal imagery, because it allows the readers to imagine the smell of blood that Lady Macbeth is trying to rid her hand of. By saying that no perfume can take the smell away, Shakespeare gives readers a vivid experience that appeals directly to their sense of smell. This quote is also a hyperbole and displays figurative ... Show more content on Helpwriting.net ... While unconscious she confesses to all of her crimes. The Superego and the Id clash to gain control on Lady Macbeth. The fight between her morals, values, and ambitions are evident throughout the play, but her mental instability is clearly shown in this scene. "What need we fear who knows it, when none can call our power to account?" This quote shows the struggle between the Id and Superego. Lady Macbeth worries that someone will find about their crimes, and fears the punishment, but at the same time, she believes that there is no one who can oppose their power, so she needn't fear. The Superego is her fear of punishment for their wrongdoings because she knows it's a grave crime. The Id is her pride on being the queen and having no one to oppose them. She believes that as long as they stay in power, no one can reveal their dark deeds. "What's done cannot be undone." This shows Lady Macbeth's guilt on killing so many people, to achieve her desires. She understands that she cannot right her mistakes, and her hands will forever be stained. By thinking this way, she deepens her guilt. Her behavior and personality is severely affected, as she starts sleepwalking, and becomes depressed and remorseful. This shows how her Ego was ... Get more on HelpWriting.net ...

  • 5. Theme Of Sensory Evidence In The Duchess Of Malfi The Duchess of Malfi by John Webster is a tragic play, which deals with love, power, and madness. The madness derives from the use of sensory evidence. In many cases, Webster uses sensory evidence to push his characters to the limit of their own mind. The concept of sensory experience is a way to grab your readers attention while using the five senses to do so. Webster employs this concept in ways that progress the plot. However, it causes much trouble for most of the characters, especially The Duchess herself. Although there could be many factors that affect the death of the Duchess, the use of the sensory experience is the most evident. We can easily observe this by her marriage to Antonio, her relationship with Bosola, and her problems with Ferdinand. To begin, a crucial conversation shapes the course of the play in a subtle but immense way. In Act 1, scene 3, The Cardinal and Ferdinand insist that The Duchess does not remarry after the death of her husband. However, they are not aware that the Duchess is planning on marrying Antonio, her old steward. The following citation shows Ferdinand's thought of those who remarry. "Marry! They are most luxurious/will wed twice." (John Webster, Act 1, scene 3, line 6–7) His comment uses the word "Luxurious" which means lecherous. Ferdinand is saying that widows that remarry are driven by an excessive desire for sexual relations and nothing more. After both brothers have spoken of their thoughts on the matter, The Duchess assures ... Get more on HelpWriting.net ...

  • 7. The End Of The Dark Passage Essay At the end of the dark passage was a room identical to the secret alcove in his court. For all of Jingyan's trepidation and anticipation, nothing happened. He kept a hand on the wall and followed the sound of Su Zhe's footfall through the unobstructed passage until dimming sunlight split the darkness. They exited into a crumbling structure with moldy beams and tangled spider webs, a deserted court with a backdoor into the mountains that rose on the east border of Hua. Jingyan followed Su Zhe through a grassy meadow and into a forest. Sometime in the middle of their walk, the last rays of the sun slinked behind the horizon and left them in the shadows of the gnarled oak trees. Twigs and fallen leaves crunched under his boot as Jingyan picked his way through the damp moss of the forest path, dodging sagged branches and stepping over surface roots. The wind was beginning to pick up, gently rustling the thick, dark green leaves of the shrubs nearby. Su Zhe walked on his right, body obscured by his oversized cloak. "Don 't you have anything to say to me?" Jingyan 's question broke the silence that 'd hung about since the hidden corridor was revealed. "When you follow me without a question or comment," said Su Zhe. "Was it trust?" Jingyan glanced at Su Zhe. Trust was a heavy word. He didn't dare to trust, but being by Su Zhe's side brought him no small amount of familiarity and amenity.

  • 9. Analysis Of Flying By Alice Miller "Flying," by Alice Miller tells the story of woman reminiscing on the time that her cousin taught her how to fly when they were kids. It begins with the main character, Allie, flying in the air with her cousin, Mack, when she was six years old. Allie has many questions and Mack tells her that all boys can fly and instructs her to not tell anyone that she knows this secret. He also tells her not to ever try to fly without him and compares this secret to the myth about Prometheus giving the God's fire to man and being punished for it. As the years went by, Allie wonders if she would ever fly again and even doubts if the memory was real. She becomes a wife and a mother to two sons and a daughter but still wonders if flying is possible. One night, she decides to test her memory and tries to fly out of her backyard. She slowly ascends just as she did when she was young but even higher. Over the next few days, her urge to fly again grows. One night, she sneaks into her children's room and picks up her daughter to take her outside and show her how to fly. The story ends with Allie telling her daughter to promise not to tell the boys what she is about to experience and excitement building in Allie for her daughter.

There were two things I took away from the article, the first being finding out the root cause of where self–concept stemmed from. For example, according to the article self–concept is first shaped by our mother; we respond back with decisions or judgments based on our initial experiences from our first caregiver. "A child who had an unresponsive mother will act obnoxious or withdrawn so that people will want to keep their distance. Those with consistently responsive mothers are confident and connect well with their peers" (Flora). Evidently, this has always been the case, specifically true in a sense where our self–perception would be a result from how our ... Show more content on Helpwriting.net ... However, my question is what if they are using their own bias judgment what this would mean to them based on their initial definition from whomever (parents or caregivers) taught them. This statement would then contradict the first initial statement made from the article where it claims we establish self–concept through growing up under our parents or care givers? Same goes for the person observing if they see someone slouching or poor posture they will see this person as lazy based on their own definition of lazy ascending from their own experience with the word lazy. 3. WHO did you ask the question, "HOW DO YOU SEE ME?" to and what were their responses? I interviewed my Sister–in–law, Sabrina. We had an interesting conversation about how she perceived me when she first met me five years ago compared to how she views me now. According to her, I had an attitude that made approaching me hard. Sabrina claimed, she struggled to trying to be friendly with me in the first couple of months because she perceived my personality, as someone who didn't want her part of the family. Now five years later, her definition of my character changed. She sees me as an outgoing person who can make conversation with just anyone.

Sure, one must have the usual physical features such as fingers, eyes, arms, hands, feet, etc., but what does it really mean? Must the human be able to speak? To take upon the actions of themselves? Whatever it means, it can be interpreted in any way from anyone. The physical attributes of any human can be ... Show more content on Helpwriting.net ... Let me go with him. ( 1.3. 248–259). Now, in John Gunther's novel, Death Be Not Proud, this type of love is family based. Johnny's love is strong and death will not tear his family apart. " Nobody else was in the room, and Johnny looked straight at him. 'Do my parents know this? How shall we break it to them?' Then, some months later, when he seemed to be getting better, he felt the edge of bone next to the flap in the skull wound, and looked questioningly and happily at the doctor–– a different doctor–– then attending him. The doctor was pleased because the bone appeared to be growing back, but with a crying lack of tact he told Johnny, 'Oh, yes... it's growing... but in the wrong direction, the wrong way.' Johnny controlled himself and said nothing until the doctor left the room. His face had gone white and he was sick with sudden worry and harsh disappointment. Then he murmured to me, 'Better not tell Mother it's growing wrong.'" (Gunther 5). Regardless of Johnny's illness, Johnny manages to love his family and enjoy life as much as possible. Third, a human must be able to have, and cope with emotion. In George Bernard Shaw's Pygmalion, Professor Higgins is a very emotional man.

The main focus of Frankenstein is the power of knowledge and how dangerous it can be. This power is portrayed in the main characters of the novel: Victor Frankenstein and the monster. The theme of knowledge helps to answer the question as to why Victor decides to tell Walton his secret. Both of these characters reveal a passion of discovery and intellect, which Victor has made his past and Walton only his future. Their obsessions of knowledge are mirrored in one another through the journeys they take until their paths cross.

He is so consumed by keeping his secret safe; his loved ones are murdered as a result. For example, Henry Clervel has his life taken as an outcome of Victor's betrayal to the creature. Victor's failure to warn Henry creates increasing guilt which continues until the death of Elizabeth. He thinks of himself instead of logically warning his wife of the monster's dangerous threats, "I shall be with you on your wedding–night." (176) Right until Victor's death, science is viewed as the only way of knowledge, as quoted, "the more fully I entered into the science, the more exclusively I pursued it for its own sake." (77) This knowledge is ultimately used against him; the monster knows what Victor is capable of and uses his ability of creating life as a threat to make a new creature to acquaint the monster. As Victor contemplates this idea, he is also threatened by the possibility of new life being created, "... a race of devils would be propagated upon the earth" (174) which dictate his actions in destroying the wife of the creature. Knowledge ultimately consumes Victor. The power of knowledge is portrayed in the monster because of his ability in absorbing intelligence from the environment and applying it to the applicable situations. Victor built the creature as an overgrown, hideous "baby" with immense physical traits. Victor quotes, "I had been the author of unalterable ... Get more on HelpWriting.net ...

Analysis Of The Minister's Black Veil In this well known American Romanticism story, The Minister's Black Veil by Nathaniel Hawthorne, we encounter a bizarre character who is our protagonist What American Romanticism was is that it was a movement in the arts and literature that originated in the late 18th century, emphasizing inspiration, subjectivity, and the primacy of the individual. Mr. Hooper was the protagonist and minister who have decided to pay penance by wearing a long black veil over his head for the rest of his days. He was judged and criticised by his own parishioners for his black veil as rumors about sin and adultery were going around the town. This was a serious issue that even results in his ex fiancee breaking off their engagement for he vowed to never remove ... Show more content on Helpwriting.net ... Hooper has suffered a great deal for the remainder of his life. Although the minister never explained why he wore it, there was much speculation as to why he did. Adultery, disloyalty, addiction, and alcoholism were just some speculations as to the secret sin he was paying penance for. The black veil has power over Mr. Hooper because he chose to conceal his sin rather than show his fiancee before he lost her. This also tells us that Mr. Hooper is a man of his word because even on his deathbed, the black veil remained on his face. The black veil was a penance to Mr. Hooper because he wore it to show his secret sin and that he acknowledged it rather than discarding it like most of the parishioners did. This united him with the lower class and criminals because they felt like minister harper was on their side because it sowed his imperfections. Yet at the same time, the close bond he had with his parishes was basically lost. The black veil also gave this eerie aura to Mr. Hooper and it made his sermons more powerful to the parishioners who took all his sermons to heart.

Reflection On Shambhala Meditation Reflection on Shambhala Meditation A couple weeks ago, while perusing the web for fun date night ideas, I accidentally stumbled upon the official website for the Asheville Shambhala Center. The website broadcasted the center as a safe space for meditation and literary discussion under the tradition of Shambhala, a spiritual and philosophical school akin but not equivalent to buddhism. Although I certainly couldn't picture dragging my boo to sit silently for four hours on a hardwood floor in honor of our anniversary, the message of basic human goodness included in the center's description intrigued me. I decided to attend one of the Sunday morning meditation sessions in order to further investigate Shambhala ideology. My GPS protested ... Show more content on Helpwriting.net ... Unfortunately, the lady described the importance of the senses in Shambhala meditation by describing them as "the five tentacles of goodness with which we reach out to the world". I spent most of the rest of her speech mortified I would burst out laughing. Even in the moment, while I was dying to run to my car and privately cackle about the word tentacle like a ten year old, I recognized how disrespectful my thought process was. I was in the presence of a woman sharing a sacred practice used to connect to the divine, cracking up about a single word poorly suited to the context of the American south. It reminded me of our discussion about Sundiata concerning the sacred and the supernatural. To my horror, the practice of Shambhala was so foreign to me, after one awkward moment my brain subconsciously filed Shambhala under the "strange hybrid of eastern and western practices attempting to appeal to unsatisfied white folks while retaining its exotic appeal" category, and discarded the spiritual significance of the practice entirely. After reflecting, I realized that the way I categorized Shambhala was disgustingly riddled with egotistical, American–first bias, white– people first bias. Since I was not familiar with Shambhala, it was easy for me to categorize the practice as ineffective and wrong, disregarding the deep spiritual significance the practice ...

Tortilla Soup is a film with many uplifting qualities that the viewer can relate. The opening scene draws the viewer in as the main protagonists, Martin Naranjo played by Hector Elizondo, prepares a large meal with many different dishes for his family. The way that Naranjo manipulates the kitchen cutlery demonstrates that he is more than a cook. His skill demonstrates that he is a fine chef. The opening scene of Naranjo preparing the meal is very relaxing to watch his culinary skills at work. It was interesting that one of the dishes was a melon blossom soup. The author had never heard of or observed this dish being served, so it required some investigation. Tortilla Soup is an enjoyable film that introduces romance and comedy during the preparation and sharing of a special meal. This film has many protagonists. The main protagonist is Martin Naranjo. He is an accomplished chef who is a widower. He lives with his three adult daughters who are very beautiful, but remain single. Naranjo lost his wife approximately ten years prior to the setting of the film. Since then he has assumed the role of father and mother. Naranjo works as a chef fulfilling is fatherly role and he also does all of the cooking, cleaning and laundry fulfilling his motherly role. Naranjo maintains that on every Sunday, the family shares a meal to share their life experiences of the week with each other. The meal seems to be a tradition in that family that has been a part of the family's ritual prior to the passing of the mother. Some of the daughters find the meal to be more of a punishment than an enjoyment. Martin for most of the film has lost his ability to taste the flavor in the food he creates. He relies at work upon his best friend and fellow chef, Gomez played by Julio Mechoso, for taste. Martin is the main protagonist as he demonstrates the most change. He lets go of his adult daughters, one at a time while gaining two more daughters, Eden the daughter of his much younger bride than he and his unborn child with the same, Yolanda.

But sometimes, due to misplaced trust, the vessels do not stay sealed, or protected, as they should be. Rather, they are exposed to the masses, and that person's heart is one display for all to see and judge and interpret. Poems are the secrets of a poet's heart. When a poet writes, it is not intended for an audience. Rather, it comes from a private place that can no longer be suppressed. There is an overwhelming desire to tell, to reveal, that leads a poet to paper.

It is not just Young Charlie living in a dream, for while Old Charlie is accusing Young Charlie of this, he himself presides in a state of illusions. He just sees things from the opposite angle; for him, "good" is a mask for evil and reality lies in a hellish place, almost the exact binary opposition to Young Charlie's small town world. In fact, the whole family is separately locked in their own dream world; this is apparent when Charlie comes to town and things are obviously amiss. There are undeniable clues that Charlie is hiding something that the family remains oblivious to. The fact that Charlie shows up, out of the blue at the same time the authorities are searching for a widow murderer does not seem strange to them. Maybe the connection gets lost, but surely they must wonder about the amount of money that Old Charlie carries; the father who is a banker and spends his free time solving mysteries does not ask any questions.

People have always curious to know what happens if you take away the five essential human senses. Our senses help us make sense of in the insane, fast paced, stressed world we live in. Not having one of our senses can lead to the process of learning how to live comfortably without that certain input of senses. While having none of the senses can lead to creating your own world by hallucinating. Without having any of the senses, can you get in contact with the supernatural? One experiment suggests that it is possible depending on the person. Is it possible that depriving all of the senses from a person could be relaxing to some? Yes, having a break from the world can help relieve stress. What happens if you just take away one of the main senses from a human? It can lead to fully understanding how lucky we are to experience the world with each of our senses. What would it be like to not be able to hear, see, touch, taste and smell? That is the question that scientists have been trying to answer with Sensory Deprivation experiments throughout the years. "Sensory deprivation is the deliberate removal of stimuli from one or more of the senses," (Hanchett 1). Sensory Deprivation can be scary.

Paying attention to details and to the small things in the world is what brings our world together. White's body of work synthesizes the ideas that Hsu and Urrea find so important in literature. The importance of community is exemplified in "Death of a Pig" and "Home–Coming" through the telephone system: "There is never any identification needed on a country phone; the person on the other end knows who is talking by the sound of the voice and by the character of the question" (White 21) and "the entire New England Telephone & Telegraph Co. deserves to be shut up in a closet for having saddled us with dials and deprived us of our beloved operators, who used to know where everybody was and just what to do about everything" (White 9). By taking note of small things around him, like the "cast of characters [he] depend[s] on" outside of his home on Forty–eighth Street (White 7), White acknowledges that our surroundings are what brings a community together.

Through Dunstan's point of view, Mrs. Dempster is a saint. Mrs. Dempster is seen through rose coloured glasses as Dunstan sees her differently than what one would normally see. In Dunstan's eyes, she is capable of miracles, to which he names three. The miracles Dunstan refers to consists of saving his "dead" brother Willie, Dunstan's memory of her face on the battlefield of WWI, and the transformation of Joel; the philanthropist who would have been a rapist. The third miracle only happened because she was willing to have intercourse with a vagrant solely because "he wanted it so bad." Her archetype leads to her being painfully giving, often giving what any normal person would not. Dunstan is constantly conflicted by Mrs. Dempster's presence, as he believes that she is a saint. Dunstan has grown too attached to her, enough for her to be considered a mother figure. Dunstan is constantly reminded of the snowball thrown by Boy that leads to the accidental premature birth of her child, Paul.

The Tell Tale Heart talks about a neurotic nameless narrator claiming to be sane by how cunningly he sneaks into the old man's room, but one night he was caught by the old man and his "vulture eyes", so the narrator killed him . Therefore night time has a direct connection with the plot of the story, our unreliable narrator would sneak into the chamber of the old man every night to shine a lantern onto his eye. Another element could be to instill fear into readers' minds, night time is symbolized by darkness and sins, a perfect time for a vicious murder to be committed. 2.How does the writer let us know that this is an unreliable narrator telling the story? A unreliable narrator is a character whose telling of story isn't completely credible due to problems with the character's mental state. First, throughout the book our narrator tell us his story almost in a satirical sense, "calmly" as if it was something casual. The disease had sharpened my senses ––not destroyed ––not dulled them. Above all was the sense of hearing acute. I heard all things in the heaven and in the earth. I heard many things in hell. How, then, am I mad?

Sylvy seems to come to her senses in the twelfth hour when she climbs high into the trees early one morning to see the white heron fly in ever so close. It was as though their was a kinship between the two, an understanding. Because of this special feeling for the bird, Sylvy could not succumb to the hunter's desire for knowledge of the nest and never divulged the secret. May Bartram in the &quot;Beast in the Jungle&quot; contrasts Sylvy quite interestingly she is assumed to be in her twenties and time is starting to pass faster making the need for a man in her life more immanent with each passing day. Suddenly one day, the right time, the right place, John Marcher enters her life forever. Just as the hunter offered bribery of money in exchange for help in securing the heron, John Marcher offered his presence in exchange for every ounce of self May Bartram would give. To the reader, this was not so attractive or tempting but to May, in consideration of the alternative, John Marcher became an obsession, even a career. Just as Sylvy would daydream, surely May would dream also, altering her real existence, feeding on her infatuation. Otherwise, the relationship, left to John Marcher, would have surely died starving.

  • 52. A Lie Tree, By Frances Hardinge A common fact about secrets is that a secret shared is not a secret at all. So what exactly is a secret? What makes people want to guard their secrets so close to their hearts? What lengths would people go to to protect their secrets? Everybody has knowledge and experiences close to their hearts that they would rather not share with the world, for fear of being judged or for fear of being exposed. Sometimes, though, a secret still gets out regardless of the measures taken to ensure its demise, and the consequences can be devastating. Even more devastating is that oftentimes, the efforts that are taken to protect a secret can be taxing and self–destructive towards the keepers of the secret, a fact that is much chronicled in literature.

Furthermore, Proust's "madeleine experience initiated for him a whole chain of association, and from this he achieved the eventual restoration of an entire vanished world." While voluntary memory can help develop an informal timeline of events along with major details such as location, involuntary memory fills in the gaps to a greater extent or even uncovers a different timeline while restoring feelings and senses connected to the recollection. This type of memory is simulated by something as simple as a pastry, or in Edmund Wilson's case, a window. In "An Old Stone House", Wilson uses voluntary memory to recollect the history and major details of his childhood home. Furthermore, his journey back to this childhood home is what triggers his involuntary memory. Sitting on a train to Talcottville, Wilson narrates, "As I go north for the first time in years... I look out through the dirt–yellowed double pane and remember how once, as a child, I had felt thwarted till I had gotten the windows up so that there should be nothing between me and the widening pastures." Suddenly, when submersed in a familiar setting, Wilson remembers how he felt as a boy on the same train. The window reveals to Wilson exactly how he felt decades ago, thus restoring a series of memories essential to further recollecting his youth in upstate New York and writing his memoir. For Proust it was a pastry, Wilson ... Get more on HelpWriting.net ...

Chaucer describes her as a 'hoord of apples leyd in hey or heeth', making it unambiguous that there is something 'secret' about Alison. But the secrecy that Chaucer presents in Alison and Absolon are not the same as the secrecy that he presents in Nicholas, this shows that these two characters are not as 'deep' in personality as Nicholas, this can also be proven by the way that Chaucer gives Alison and Absolon extensive physical description thus making no secret of their vanity and superficiality. The element of secrecy is maintained throughout the tale and Chaucer makes secrets and secrecy dominate the relationships between the characters. The most palpable been Nicolas and Alison. The actions in their first encounter are described as 'prively' and this adds to the bawdiness of their relationship. Alison also says 'That but ye waite wel and been privee' and this line makes it clear to the reader that there is and will be more deceit in the tale.

William Blake Poetry Analysis In general, there are various forms of literature, whom many historical authors and analysts throughout the decades have the chance to demonstrate their freedom of expression, and as well as using their imagination to conduct dramatic plots with compelling characters. In particular, there is one specific literary form that expresses the author's mood, tone and profound messages, in a way that is rhythmic, allegorical and visually creative pertaining to the human senses.

Analysis Of Flying By Alice Miller "Flying," by Alice Miller is a complex story about a woman named Allie, who reminisces about a time spent when her cousin Mack taught her to fly when she was just a young girl. On different occasions when Mack visited, he would show her how to do new things. As Allie grew up she found herself thinking of the secret that Mack shared with her and how he told her not to tell anyone or she may get hurt. Allie longed for the feeling of flying, if she could just reach out and talk to Mack but too much time had passed. She dreams of flying in her sleep, not for long periods of time, but just enough to embrace that feeling she had years ago. She wonders if many people have experienced flying the way that she has and if she could fly by herself without Mack. One day, Allie tries to fly on her own and succeeds, soaring higher than she did with Mack. Before Allie knew it, she was flying through the clouds and around town. Now that Allie has experienced the feeling of flying again, more than ever she wanted to share with her kids. One night after the children were asleep she wanted to share her secret with her boys but instead chose her daughter. Miller suggests that when a person is afraid of doing something on their own, sometimes it just takes a little bit of courage to step out and let go of the things that could be holding a person back. Allie appears to be a lonely person, although married and with three children of her own. She has no one that she can share her secret of ... Get more on HelpWriting.net ...

In this parable, Mr. Hooper gives an invisible element in sin a physical appearance in the black veil which now makes his sin a connection between himself, God, and the townspeople. It is apparent that Mr. Hooper is dealing with some sort of internal conflict and his way of confronting his issue is by covering his face from everyone with the black veil. Lastly, there are several themes in The Minister's Black Veil relating to topics including sin, guilt, fear, and judgment. The first theme focuses on people's reaction to change. Soon after Mr. Hooper covers his face, people secluded themselves from him and gave him bewildered stares even after he showed them courtesy. Likewise, his wife Elizabeth left him after she failed to persuade him to abandon the black veil. The narrator also explains how Mr. Hooper created a group of converts as well as how people at their deathbed would not take their last breath until they received consolation from Mr. Hooper. Strangers began to travel from long distances just to hear his sermons and gaze at his figure. Another theme found in The Minister's Black Veil is that people fear what they do not know and do not understand. The mystery of the black veil perhaps was the biggest thing that intimidated the townspeople. Mr. Hooper is overcome with the same horror as the townspeople when he catches a glimpse of himself.

The Goodness Of Matt Kaizer Character Analysis Matt Kaizer, the protagonist in Avi's short story "The Goodness of Matt Kaizer," is a 6th grader who develops a new perspective on himself as a person. After being told his entire life to act good like his father, Matt Kaizer now struggles to find himself; he turns to be unlike his father and becomes a daredevil. However, a dare to visiting a dying man leads him to see the goodness in himself. After visiting Mr.Bataky, Matt's perspective of himself begins to change. "The Goodness of Matt Kaizer" begins with Matt as insecure and heartless. He attempts to change the image that everyone expects of him due to his father's reputation. Early in the story, Matt Kaizer was insecure; he tried to do anything that would help him fit in. Reverend Kaizer, Matt's father, is known as an upstanding member in the community. He is a well–respected man and Matt is adamant to be unlike him. Because Matt and his father converse, Matt's insecurities are revealed, "'Matt, I do believe that there is goodness in everyone. That goes for you too'... 'I'm not good' Matt insisted... 'Long as my friends dare me to do bad things, I'll do them'" (Avi 36). Matt Kaizer is insecure about how others perceive him, since he is the son of a minister. Matt Kaizer would have taken on any dare that his friends give him. No matter how deplorable it would seem, he would take it as he is desperate to not to be as his father's son. He is insecure about the way people perceive him as a reverend's son, because a large weight rest on his shoulders to be good. He surrounds himself with bad children; he hoped that they will be a poor influence on him. Likewise, Matt Kaizer is heartless throughout the beginning of the story. While he takes a dare to visit an alcoholic on the verge of death, his lack of feelings is uncovered, "'My mother said that he may die at any moment.' Mary Beth informed us... 'Who cut the cheese?' he said with a grin" (Avi 42–43). The insensitive remark Matt spoke about Mary Beth's household suggests he does not care about how she must be feeling. He never cares about the people around him, because he desires to be unlike his kind father in every way imaginable. This compels Matt to act as if he cannot be compassionate towards those around ...

The first revolves around the idea that characters and events cannot be explained with certainty because it is "impossible to assign causes to effects or to delineate clear boundaries of responsibility" (Lanser 131); besides, human behaviour "remains only partially amenable to explanatory forms" (Lanser 132). The unknowable, meanwhile, has to do with the inarticulable or "what realism has designated non–existent or impossible" (Lanser 133). On the one hand the inexplicable ...

She ran, then, through all that snow, and when she got back to her apartment she took the birds from their cages and set them out the windows to freeze or fly, including the parrot that said, "I love you."
