11 April 2018 The Root of Evil
Nature seems to reflect upon humans and often times it can be through animals. In literature, animal comparisons are not only used to symbolize
different characteristics, but to also make the plot more dramatic and interesting. It is often used by many authors because it gives the reader a vivid
image as well as an understanding of the character. The use of this literary device is a clever way to expose underlying motifs and traits. In William
Shakespeare's play, Othello, animal imagery is used to portray the themes of good versus evil, jealousy, and racism which is influenced through the
characters of Iago and Othello.

Summary Of Animal Imagery In Toni Morrison's Beloved
Toni Morrison's main purpose of animal imagery throughout Beloved is to more deeply connect the underlying question of self–identity that African
Americans experienced as a result of slavery. This question specifically relates from the widely accepted subhuman treatment of African Americans in
the South even years following the emancipation of slavery, and it provides a deeper understanding of the brutal dispositions of white slaveowners.
Characters in Beloved, including Sethe, Stamp Paid, and Paul D, who have directly experienced this type of animalistic dehumanization as former
slaves find themselves frequently question their own fundamental self worth and identity. Through constant abuse and antagonization, these slaves
unavoidably accept themselves as subordinate to animals. This sentiment derives from several instances throughout the novel where these characters
directly confronted with comparisons to animals as a result of this sub humane treatment by former slave owners. Toni Morrison uses animal imagery
to more effectively emphasize the relation between the brutal and dehumanizing experiences in the South with the actual barbaric dispositions of white
slave owners. The first scene in the novel when a character directly involving Paul D's question of self identity is seen during a scene in the barn where
he compares his freedom to a roosters. Paul D maintains a generally strong willed attitude when confronting torment by his slave owners, as shown in

The Use Of Animal Imagery In Fairyland
More generally, animal imagery stresses the dark and frightening elements of Fairyland. When Titania is about to rest in the woods, her fairies perform
a soliloquy or lullaby, to ward off any vile creatures that would wish to harm Titania, and to make her feel safe.
"You spotted snakes with double tongue,
Thorny hedgehogs, be not seen;
Newts and blindworms, do no wrong,
Come not near our Fairy Queen.
(II, ii, 9–12).
Weaving spiders, come not here;
Hence, you long–legged spinners, hence!
Beetles black, approach not near;
Worm nor snail, do no offense.
(II, ii, 20–23).
Blindworms, snakes, newts, spiders and beetles are all insects and animals that terrify or disturb the average human. Some humans keep hedgehogs as
pets, thus lowering their scare factor, yet the 'thorny' description reminds the reader of their potential for harm and danger. Both Fairyland and its creep
creatures have the potential for deception and evil or can be harmless and lighthearted. The key words of "double tongue" and "be not seen," are
especially troublesome as this hints that the terrifying animals of the human world that are not usually seen are present in this world. The animal
imagery in this passage depicts a creepier Fairyland that is more of a nightmare than a dream. Oberon matches the harsh and creepy descriptions of the
fairies when he wishes that Titania fall in love with an undesirable creature. He suggests a "cat or bear," a "boar with bristled hair," or "some vile thing"

Animal Imagery And The Classical Period Essay
The use of animal imagery in Greek literature initially appears easy to understand as it is one of the simplest types of comparison found in poetry from
European tradition. In fact, Western culture seems to encourage us to contrast the human world with that of the animal. This habit makes it easy to
assume that no profound meaning can truly be drawn from such a clichéd analogy. I have not found this to be the case however when analysing the use
of animal imagery to describe women in the Classical period. Animal imagery, particularly that relating to birds and horses, is used ingeniously across
the period to dissect and often criticise the base nature of women. Women were seen as closer to the natural realm than men and something to be feared
but is it an overgeneralization to suggest that all Greek authors utilise animal imagery when describing women to negative effect? In this essay I will
attempt to illustrate Greek authors' reasons for using animal imagery to describe women and whether Walcott is right to suggest attitudes towards
women in literature and in the Greek world in general were 'conditioned by man's fear of women's sexuality' (1984: 45). One of the most distinctive
qualities of Homeric epic is the extensive use of simile, drawn almost entirely from nature. His characters are likened to 'almost every aspect of the
natural world, from locusts to lightning and from bats to beans' (Gariépy 1973: 89). Homer's use of animal imagery, although most often expressed

Animal Imagery In Yann Martel's Life Of Pi
In Yann Martel's Life of Pi, Pi shares a tough adventure with Richard Parker, which is a tiger, in Pi's imaginary story. However, in part 3 of the book,
when Mr. Okamoto and Mr. Chiba have a talk with Pi, Pi tells another story, which is what really happens in his adventure. Pi doesn't want to show his
adventure without animal imagery. In Yann Martel's Life of Pi, Pi wants to show his story through the use of animal imagery because it makes the story
more tolerable, humane, and also makes him feel less guilty about his action in his adventure. In Life of Pi, Pi tells his adventure in two versions. One
is the story with animals, and another one is the story without animals. However, in both versions of the story, the story with animals is more tolerable
for people to read. At the end of the interview between Pi, Mr. Okamoto, and Mr. Chiba, they are discussing which story is better: "So tell me...... The

So finally it comes to this: a Shakespearean play is a spiritual experience a spatial organization 'concerned with transcendental realities,'[ibidem] the

Professor Oscar James Campbell said that through imagery Shakespeare "made his figurative language intensely an auditor's response to particular
situations and also used it to create and individualize his characters." Bradley showed that the imagery helped to intensify certain themes (for example,
the animal imagery in 'Hamlet' and the fire imagery in Coriolanus') in the plays. Spurgeon demonstrated that the "Cluster" of imagery and certain
"recruitment images" revealed Shakespeare's "personality, temperament and thought," together with the "themes and characters of the plays". Clemen
showed that through imagery, Shakespeare reveals characteristic features of his characters and the atmosphere of the play. Such study of imagery is
purposeful and pertinent. But claims such as the purpose of imagery in Shakespeare is to probe the "transcendental realities, or, the imagery is
inalienably related to a "developing pattern", or, Shakespeare's play is a poem where characters are non–existent, sound rather preposterous and make

often use animal imagery as characters or to describe the condition of the characters in a story. Animal imagery is an important part of literature,
movies, and storytellings. Animal imagery reflects the relationship between humans and animals. Many children stories have animal imagery, such as

In Lord of the Flies, the author uses the pig head(lord of the flies) to symbolize the power of evil and control. In the novel, the boys were stuck on an
island, their condition evokes the beast and raw animalism within them. Another example is Animal Farm, the characters in the book were animals, but
they act as humans, have established a government, and overthrow the farmer. The story refers to the Russian Revolution. An example of using animal
imagery in movies is the Life of Pi, the author has used many symbolisms in the story. For example, Richard Parker, the tiger who lived on the sea with
Pi, symbolizes Pi's evil side. A book that has used animal imagery seems more likely to be a children's book, using animal imagery to write a novel or a
book for adults could make it become more childish. Animal imagery is used for describing the relationship between humans and animals. Using it
could represent the spiritual meaning of a historical event, for example: Animal imagery is an important part of movies, novels, poems, and all the
storytelling. It has a long history, writers use it to write children's books, historical novels, and also fictional novels. It's also used as a material in many

Animal Imagery In On The Subway
We share the same beating hearts under different skin. Through Olds, we are shown that race is simply just skin color, and she takes on how we view
people and life at face value. "On the Subway" gives a historical point–of–view of how some White–Americans have, and sometimes still deem
African–Americans. The comparison of the appearance of the boy sitting across from her to that of a cold, casual mugger, sets the tone; mysterious and
gripping. The speaker, in her furs and briefcase makes her an appealing target. Her tone implies that she feels she is in danger of this dark–skinned boy.
Throughout the beginning of poem, the speaker contrasts herself from the boy. Her light skin against his dark features. Her costly animal furs and his
blood red hood. The speaker then shifts her views from physical to introspective. The use of visual imagery and animal imagery in On The Subway lets

Essay on Animal Imagery in A Doll's House
Animal Imagery in A Doll's House
Animal imagery in Henrick Ibsen's play, A Doll's House is a critical part of the character development of Nora, the protagonist.
Ibsen uses creative, but effective, animal imagery to develop Nora's character throughout the play. He has Torvald call his wife "his little lark"(Isben) or
"sulky squirrel"(Isben) or other animal names throughout the play. He uses a lot of 'bird' imagery–calling her many different bird names. The name
Torvald uses directly relates to how he feels about her at the time. The animals Ibsen chooses to use are related to how Nora is acting, or how she needs
to be portrayed. For instance: Not even a dozen lines into Act I, Torvald asks (referring to Nora), "Is that ... Show more content on Helpwriting.net ...
Throughout the play Torvald refers to Nora as his lark, or songbird; two birds that are stereotypically peaceful, carefree, happy birds. At least on the
outside. On the inside the birds may have many struggles, but they don't show it, much like Nora avoids doing it. Torvald does not know the difference.
He thinks Nora is always happy, never sad, and energetic–characteristics of the song bird (at least on the out side).
Later, in Act II, Nora tells Torvald that she would "be a wood nymph and dance for you in the moonlight"(Isben). A wood nymph is a beautiful
hummingbird that is graceful in flight, much like Nora wants to be for Torvald when she dances. She wants Torvald to be happy with her, because she
knows he is going to find out about the note.
In Act II, Nora is begging Torvald to let Krogstad keep his job at the bank–which Torvald is the manger for–so Krogstad won't ask for the money back
the she owes him. Nora gets quite worked up about all of this. Torvald finally calms her down, and notices her "frightened dove's eyes"(Isben). A dove
has always been a symbol of peace–keeping, and Ibsen uses it effectively to show her efforts to maintain peace and order. Torvald notices that she is
just trying keep things right, and refers to her as a dove.
The animal imagery is consistent throughout the play, usually with references to happy, cheerful animals. In Act III

How Does Iago Use Animal Imagery In Othello

Animal Imagery in Othello
William Shakespeare's Othello utilizes animal imagery to develop themes in the play. Although this play is written in Shakespearian language, it is not
difficult to understand the animal references and how they contribute to communicating important themes. By comparing people to beasts, their true
evilness or goodness is shown through. The dehumanizing animalistic terms and dramatic imagery, develop themes of alienation and racism in the play
and also provide insight and clarify the contrast between the characters and how they are perceived.

Iago continues his campaign to malign Othello with animal imagery, by telling Brabantio that "your daughter and the Moor are now making the beast
with two backs" (Act 1 Scene 1). Each time, Brabantio must see in his mind, his virginal white daughter being molested by a black beast, nevermind
that his daughter is engaging in sexual activity. Iago knows his relentless use of symbolism plays into society's opinion of interracial marriages as 'good
vs. evil' where the black Othello is the evil.
The animal terminology also dehumanizes Desdemona, turning her into a sexual object, being as unable to control her beastly urges as Othello, or being
turned into a beast with sexual urges by Othello. There is also the idea that once Desdemona is an animal she is no longer a human and can be used by

Sigmund Freud once argued that "our species has a volcanic potential to erupt in aggression . . . [and] that we harbour not only positive survival

Parallels are drawn between the protagonist, Robert Ross, and many of the animals that appear throughout the novel. Robert appears to have a strong
kinship with his animal counterparts. After enlisting in the army, Robert takes a run out on the prairie, where he encounters a coyote. He instinctively
begins to follow the creature, and it leads him to a valley where it stops to drink at a small pond. As it drinks, "the sound . . . [crosses] the distance
between them and . . . [seems] to satisfy his own thirst" (The Wars 28). Before the coyote leaves, it turns and "[looks] directly at him . . . and [barks] . .
.The coyote had known he was there the whole time: maybe the whole of the run across the prairie. Now it was telling Robert that the valley was
vacant: safe–and Robert could proceed to the water's edge and drink" (28). Later that night, as he sits alone, Robert finds himself "wishing that
someone would howl" (28). Robert also seems to have a special bond with birds, which often appear in the novel, frequently at times of crisis for
Robert. After unwittingly leading his men through the fog onto a collapsing dike, the air is suddenly "filled with the shock waves of wings . . . [and] the
sound of their motion [sends] a shiver down Robert's back" (81). Subsequently, Robert steps into the sinking mud and is nearly sucked down to his

Examples Of Animal Imagery In Miss Julie
Miss Julie is a drama of paradoxes and reversals. It is a play by August Strindberg which is set on midsummer's Eve. It is a play that touches on
symbols through animal imagery. These references to animals as Miss Julie shows the idea that "human beings are the products of the forces
surrounding them". Strindberg adopted animals to parallel characters and convey ideas dramatically which would be otherwise be kind of inappropriate
with explicit representation of mortals. The animal imagery in this play demonstrates how society looks down upon the people they feel are inferior to
them. I believe that August has given the audience a deeper understanding of the forces acting on the characters in Miss Julie through the use of animal

This suddenly reveals the characters to both Julie and Jean himself. Strindberg decides to use animals to match characters and convey the meaning
behind everyone's actions. He firstly uses "stable yard" to show a place Miss Julie and her ex–husband were at and thus brings about a horse in mind.
Here we get to see Miss Julie putting his ex–husband in a horrible situation and treating him like a child. "Teach a dog to jump" [4] also shows how
proud Miss Julie is and wants to show that class rules but Jean eventually shows that no matter what, whether rich or not men are superior to women
when he takes control of the situation of Miss Julie and The bird. Even though Miss Julie wants to show that women too have a say in judgements, she
is easily weakened by Jean "flirts" and cannot say any more. Strindberg uses Julie's dog, Diana' which seems to serve as an epitome of Julie's fate or
fortune. The dog get into an ''affair" with a pug of the lower standing, the "gatekeeper's pug". Using these antitheses foreshadows Julie and Jean where

Theme Of Animal Imagery In Macbeth
Shakespeare is unarguably famous for his creative and vivid use of imagery in his acclaimed plays. Animal imagery is one literary device he uses often
to develop theme and characterize individuals in his plays. One of his most prominent tragedies, Macbeth, contains many examples of animal imagery,
most of which characterizes Macbeth himself. Animal imagery at the beginning of the tragedy, such as the comparison of Macbeth to an eagle and a
lion, characterize him as loyal, brave, and honorable. As the play develops, however, the animal imagery used, like a predatory bird and a ferocious
beast, begins to characterize him as power hungry, violent, and truly inhumane. In his tragedy Macbeth, William Shakespeare uses animal imagery to

Falcons are usually predators to smaller and less threatening birds such as mousing owls, and not considered their prey. In this unnatural scenario,
however; the falcon is the prey, and the mousing owl is the predator. Macbeth is symbolic of the mousing owl, conquering the more powerful and
usually predatory falcon, represented by Duncan. Although this may be a success in Macbeth's eyes, it signifies the beginning of his callous nature as he
now turns against his once revered and powerful king without regret or emotion.
Shakespeare demonstrates Macbeth's downfall to a king trapped in his madness in the latter portion of Macbeth by comparing Macbeth to a predatory
bird and a fierce bear. In Act 4, Macduff, one of Macbeth's enemies, has fled to England, and Shakespeare describes Lady Macduff as the "poor wren,
the most diminutive of birds, will fight, her young ones in the nest, against the owl" (4.2.12–13). Lady Macduff is the innocuous prey, while Macbeth is
the owl, a cruel predator; turning merciless, devoid of emotion. and choosing to kill an innocent lady and her children. Macbeth's reckless ruthlessness

In Maus, Jews are rarely seen socializing with other animals revealing the system of classification or how other races interacted and viewed status. The
Jews kept to themselves and welcome people of their kind. This is shown when Vladek was immediately accepted into the Zylderbergs, or Anja's
family, home with full trust. They were willing to welcome Vladek into their home without them getting to know him, due to being a mouse
(Spiegelman 21 Panel 1). It was undeniable that the Jews were also capable of being racist. They were known to only trust their own kind and this is
shown in multiple instances. In Maus II, Artie, his wife Francoise, and Vladek encounter a hitchhiker on their way home from the store (Spiegelman

Theme Of Animal Imagery In A Midsummer Night's Dream
An animal is any "living organism other than a human being" (OED). When the definition of animals directly divides them from humankind, examples
of half–human, half–animal creatures are meaningful yet complicated symbols. A Midsummer Night's Dream plays with the mystical and supernatural
by frequently breaking down the barriers between animals and humans. Fairies are neither human nor animal, and they live in a world, Fairyland, which
is separate from and invisible to humans. Considering the definition of animal is anything that is not human, the world of fae is unconsciously rooted in
animalistic imagery. This world is also home to other half–human creatures such as satyrs, centaurs, nymphs, mermaids and sprites. A Midsummer
Night's Dream thus highlights and breaks down the barriers between the human and non–human world, and with seemingly little purpose. This essay
will analyze the use of animal imagery, particularly through the donkey and serpent, to argue that animal imagery intensifies the emotions of the play,
from exaggerating comedic elements to accentuating the dark and nightmarish aspects of Fairyland. To provide some context, Shakespeare's A
Midsummer Night's Dream interferes with love through the deception of fairies. When Hermia's father insists she marry Demetrius, she runs away with

Essay about Powerful Animal Imagery in King Lear
In King Lear. Shakespeare uses imagery of great imaginative depth and resonance to convey his major themes and to heighten the readers experience of
the play. There are some predominant image patterns.
In my opinion, it is the imagery of animals and savage monsters that leave the most lasting impression. The imagination is filled with pictures of wild
and menacing creatures, ravenous in their appetites, cruel in their instincts. The underlying emphasis in such imagery is on the vileness of which

monsters. Lear often uses animal and monster metaphors when describing his daughters' ... Show more content on Helpwriting.net ...
The main one is that the worst representatives of humanity threaten to destroy humane values since they live by the law of the jungle. I also found a
close association between the animal images and the pervasive suggestion of bodily pain, horror and suffering in the play. As well as savage wolves and
other predators, the imagery feature stinging adders, gnawing rats, whipped, whining, mad and biting dogs.
King Lear is set in a brutal and savage prehistoric world, a Britain where violence, torture and physical suffering are all so commonplace as to be
unremarkable. All through the play we are conscious of strife, buffeting, strain and bodily suffering to the point of agony. the images involving the
human body are particularly grim. We have the repeated image of the body in anguished movement, tugged, wrenched, beaten, tortured, and finally
broken on a rack. even death is seen by Kent as a welcome release from torture, which is almost the permanent condition of those who live in the Lear
world. As Lear is dying, Kent makes the appeal: "O let him pass! He hates him/That would upon the rack of this tough world/ Stretch him out longer".
This image of the world as a torture chamber darkens the closing moments of the play. Lear, while imagining himself in some sort of afterlife, still feels
pain: "I am bound/ Upon a wheel of fire, that mine own tears/ Do scald like molten lead". Elsewhere, he sees himself wrenched and tortured by an

which he offers to share Vladek a box of food. The brief interaction does not add any significance to the cat and mouse metaphor seen throughout the
graphic novel because the frog has no impact or change on Vladek, thus making the animal metaphor less effective. Another reason why the animal
metaphor is also less effective is how misrepresenting the stereotypes can be. The pigs for example are usually stereotyped as self centered and lazy
animals. However, (Spiegelman 92) the pig doctor who helps Vladek's injured hand directly contradicts the stereotype that pigs are self centered.
Spiegelman's use of stereotyping and lack of other animals hinders the effectiveness of animal metaphor in the theme. One could argue that the lack of
images in Night could possibly allow readers to miss information, however, pictures aren't everything into understanding what is going on. "Dragging

The evidence proves that the motif reveals Medea's weakness to others around her because the nurse's warning to the boys is much like one a doctor
would give to an ill patient, the animal imagery the author uses shows how uneasy Medea has become since being left alone in Helias. Medea's
"Ways[being] too wild" is a way of the Author showing that she is becoming less and less of a mother to her children and more of an animal that is she
is uneasy because she is weak due to her unnatural behavior towards her own flesh and blood. Therefore, the motif of animal imagery shows Medea as
a weak and powerless woman at the start of the play in the eyes of those around her and herself.
Despite Medea's weak state, later on the animal imagery shows how strong she becomes and how she gains power. One example of this is when Medea
looks at her at her sons, while the nurse taking care of the boys and Medea in their home she watches them and notices that it is not a look of mother's
love "yet it's with a look of a lioness" with her glare as if she "just gave birth" (Euripides 6). The animal imagery here reveals Medea as a powerful
because the author gives her a look of "lioness" to emphasize the creature that Medea has become after being betrayed and abandoned. Much

Animal Imagery In Little Red-Riding Hood
Animal Imagery Plays an Important Role in Storytelling Did you ever read the story of "Little Red–riding Hood"? Or heard about the big bad wolf in
the Little Red–riding Hood? The big bad wolf is an example of animal imagery. Animal images help change people's perception of animals and create a
culture of sympathy and protection.
"The definition of animal imagery is the relationship between humans and animals. It is an artistic approach to the representation of the animal–human
relationship. It enhances the perception of people using animals. In literature animal imagery is used to define the characteristics of a human using
animal instincts and behaviors. It's another way of symbolizing animals in a way that humans can relate to." (Seguin)

In William Shakespeare's play "Othello" the use of animal imagery was evident throughout the telling of the story. Shakespeare explained several

His plan was to get Cassio drunk and have him mutter words of hate and disgust to Othello, a person who Cassio had great respect for, until he was

Shakespeare's animal imagery in this paragraph helps one to understand Cassio's burden of having too many questions and not enough answers. In
using the comparison of Hydra, the many headed monster, to Cassio explained how Cassio's burden would be lifted if he only had more mouths to
explain everything he had to say at one time. In Act Three Iago once again tries to manipulate another character in the play. This time he told
Othello of an alleged affair that Cassio and Desdemona were having. The affair that Iago spoke of was a complete lie, for the two were nothing more
than friends. Upon hearing of this alleged affair though,
Othello went into a fit of rage yelling, "Arise, black vengeance, from hollow hell! Yield up, O love, thy crown and hearted throne To tyrannous hate!
Swell, bosom, with thy fraught, for 'tis of aspics' tongues" (p. 149).
Shakespeare was attempting to illustrate a man, who was torn between his good friend, someone who he respected, and his lover. Shakespeare
portrayed a man going through an almost metamorphosis of emotions into this animal that he could not control. Othello yelled for this side of him to

Fahrenheit 451 Animal Imagery Essay
In many works of literature, motifs are utilized to enrich detail and develop meaning in the writing. The dystopian bestseller, Fahrenheit 451, written by
Ray Bradbury is filled with various symbols, imagery, and themes. Montag, the fireman, lives in a futuristic society where wildlife is disguised as
medical instruments, robotic machines, and warped representations. Throughout the novel, the idea of animals is a recurring symbol that illustrates the
theme of perversion of nature.
Animal motifs add significance to the narrative when Mildred, the wife of Montag, is treated with a snakelike mechanism. Bradbury's intent to use an
animal metaphor is to enlighten the reader about how wildlife is misrepresented during the work of literature. Within the world of destruction he
created, Bradbury explains the lack of construction; therefore, the natural order is distorted. Over the course of the writing, creatures portray the corrupt
environment; for instance, Montag describes, "They had this machine. They had two machines, really. One of them slid into your stomach like a black
cobra down an echoing well looking for all the old water and the old time gathered there. It drank up the green matter that flowed to the top in a slow
boil" (Bradbury 12). As Mildred lays unconscious in her bed the operator uses a snakelike pump machine to drain and replace Mildred's blood;

myself..." (pg. 43 Orwell). Later on, he fought in the Civil War, and then went to become a radio announcer for World War 2. His life experiences
inspired "The Animal Farm". George Orwell integrated imagery, analogy, and irony into "Animal Farm" through symbolism, thematic issues, and

Animal Imagery In John Steinbeck's 'Of Mice And Men'
"Slowly, like a terrier, who doesn't bring a ball back to its master. Lennie approached, drew back, approached again" (ch1, p7) wrote author John
Steinbeck, in his classic novella Of Mice and Men. Steinbeck uses animal imagery and symbolism throughout the novel, especially in the character of
Lenny Small, to reveal certain truths about the human condition. Lennie has a mental disability that prevents him from interacting and communicating
with humans on a normal level. His inability to communicate effectively has led to dangerous situations for him and his friend George. In the novel, the
animal imagery is used to reveal the way that humans, are 'outsider', are often viewed and treated by others as animals or animal–like. Lennie's
innocence and inability to recognize his own strength is shown through his interaction with the mice. He innocently intends to pet the mice but kills
them because he does not recognize his own brute strength. At the beginning of the chapter, Steinbeck expresses the extrabodily greatness of Lennie's
size and strength by comparing him to an animal at the beginning of the chapter. "He walked heavily, dragging his feet a little the way a bear drags his
paws" (Steinbeck, p9). Steinbeck strengthens this comparison by stating, "Lennie dabbled his paws in the water" (Steinbeck, p3). Lennie's strength is
also described in a scene where he is fighting Curley. The author explains, "The next minute Curley was flopping like a fish on a line, and his closed

Poole know that "[t]here must be something terribly wrong...but neither one knew how to put it into words. The birds, being gone, had taken some
mysterious presence with them. There was an awful sense of void––as if the world had been emptied" (81). The birds return and when Robert nears the

narrator, questions the people in the town to hear everyone's side of the story of what happened. Several animals are mentioned, and they all specifically

the butterfly represents Santiago Nasar's innocence. Marquez uses these animals to provide mystery which creates a suspenseful atmosphere. Marquez
uses rabbits to emphasize that Santiago Nasar is a sensitive person. Victoria Guzman, who is the cook, says "he was just like his father... a shit" (10).
She says this because Santiago Nasar's father, Ibrahim Nasar, used to seduce Victoria Guzman and make love to her and she is afraid that Santiago
Nasar will do the same to her daughter, Divina Flor. Although Victoria Guzman sees Santiago Nasar as a bad person, Santiago is a caring person, "by

Ross is a candid recollection of a young man coming of age in the midst of horror and confusion associated with the "war to end all wars". Presented in
the form of an archivist trying to piece together the past from pictures and letters, the narrative account is full of rich imagery and deep meaning. The
abundant animal imagery in the novel is used to parallel and reveal the character of Robert Ross, foreshadow the situations he finds himself in, and
symbolize hope amidst war.

grave. His conduct greatly contrasts that of the soldiers who kill and torture cats and vermin. This only further exemplifies his compassion for the lives
of even of the smallest of creatures.

Chronicle Of A Death Foretold Animal Imagery Essay
The Animals Within Unless you don't eat meat, you've probably had to explain why it is okay to kill animals, but not okay to kill humans? In a
Chronicle of a Death Foretold, Gabriel Marquez explains that neither are okay but sometimes both need to happen anyways. This occurs when the cook
is seen cleaning the rabbits for dinner, and is begged to be more humane. Likewise, the pity and guilt Santiago feels for the pigs that the Vicario
brothers slaughtered. As well as, how dogs are used as a metaphor, to represent the community. Garcia Marquez uses animal imagery to depict the
brutal murder of Santiago Nasar. At the beginning of the story, Marquez compares Nasar's death to the death of the pigs. Pigs are not a well–liked
animal, and are often associated with negative feelings, which in turn portray Santiago as an unlikeable character. This forces the readers to only pay
attention to these characteristics and see nothing else about him. The motif of pigs is used throughout the novel, as a means to show the degrading
status of Santiago. "He was carved up like a pig an hour later" (Marquez, 4), this is an exceptional ... Show more content on Helpwriting.net ...

smell of death, increased the uneasiness" (Marquez, 73). Specifically, Santiago's own "loyal" dog tried to eat his insides during the autopsy, the same
way the dogs had eaten the rabbits. These dogs are a metaphor which are used to illustrate the loyalty of the community. The town had all been aware of

Jack's tribe. The boys play and dine, and circle together for a "dance" when Simon stumbles out of the forest to tell them of his discovery, and lands in
the circle, which results in him being brutally beat to death. This attack on Simon demonstrates how the fear of the beast that the boys are experiencing
is affecting their better judgment, and pushes their morals to the side, just so that they can feel safe. In chapter 9 of Lord of the Flies, William Golding

Through the life of Balram and his journey from rags to riches in The White Tiger, Aravind Adiga attempts to portray, in an exaggerated form, the daily

certain characters, and the societal hierarchy as a whole are among the many aspects of the novel that are related to animals. Through this imagery,
Adiga highlights the eat or be eaten, jungle lifestyle that encompasses India. The most apparent animal imagery is introduced to the reader before the
novel is even opened. The title, The White Tiger, obviously refers to the jungle cat. The white tiger is seen as the smartest and most noble animal in the

In fact, humans and chimps act so much alike it's scary. Lennie in Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck is often compared to an animal when speaking
about his actions and body features. Even though John Steinbeck uses animal imagery throughout Of Mice and Men to help show that Lennie lacks
common sense, the animal imagery is also used to show the reader that Lennie is innocent and childlike, and has a great work ethic.
Lennie definitely lacks common sense, much like an animal does. For one, Lennie would catch mice because they were soft and he liked to pet them.
But, whenever he would pet them, he would pet them or squeeze them too hard because he forgot how small they are and end up killing them. He
would also get mad at them for biting him, and also ended up killing it. He accidentally killed his puppy and Curley's wife, too, because he forgot his
own strength. On page 3, when Lennie and George reached the clearing they would be staying at one night, Steinbeck says, "His huge companion

Animal Imagery In Fairy Tales
Over time, historians have interpreted the use of animal imagery in western folk and fairy tales as a means for providing entertainment and moral
lessons to western society. However, many historians have different ideas about how animal imagery and stereotypes actually affect a society besides
keeping away from wolves and bears and such. Dr. Jack Zipes, a professor of German and comparative literature, promotes in his paper, "What Makes a
Repulsive Frog So Appealing: Memetics and Fairy Tales," that the story of "The Frog Prince" is actually a story about the strategies of mating and how
the frog symbolizes its appearance of an unsuitable mate to a suitable one. In a completely different turn on fictional fairy tales influencing society, Dr.
Anna Idström and Dr. Elisabeth Piirainen, experts on endangered metaphors, instead argue that animal imagery in metaphors, idioms and tales of the
Inari Saami people are actually based on real animal behavior in their work, "The wolf – an evil and ever–hungry beast or a nasty thief? Conventional
Inari Saami metaphors and widespread idioms in contrast." Finally, in addition to how specific animal stereotypes and imagery affect elements of
western society, Dr. Lewis Seifert, a professor of French literature, tackles the subject of animal–human hybrids in fairy tales and how they are able to

Examples Of Animal Imagery In Othello

  • 1. Examples Of Animal Imagery In Othello Diana Gonzalez Ms.Stinnett English IV Honors 11 April 2018 The Root of Evil Nature seems to reflect upon humans and often times it can be through animals. In literature, animal comparisons are not only used to symbolize different characteristics, but to also make the plot more dramatic and interesting. It is often used by many authors because it gives the reader a vivid image as well as an understanding of the character. The use of this literary device is a clever way to expose underlying motifs and traits. In William Shakespeare's play, Othello, animal imagery is used to portray the themes of good versus evil, jealousy, and racism which is influenced through the characters of Iago and Othello.

  • 3. Summary Of Animal Imagery In Toni Morrison's Beloved Toni Morrison's main purpose of animal imagery throughout Beloved is to more deeply connect the underlying question of self–identity that African Americans experienced as a result of slavery. This question specifically relates from the widely accepted subhuman treatment of African Americans in the South even years following the emancipation of slavery, and it provides a deeper understanding of the brutal dispositions of white slaveowners. Characters in Beloved, including Sethe, Stamp Paid, and Paul D, who have directly experienced this type of animalistic dehumanization as former slaves find themselves frequently question their own fundamental self worth and identity. Through constant abuse and antagonization, these slaves unavoidably accept themselves as subordinate to animals. This sentiment derives from several instances throughout the novel where these characters directly confronted with comparisons to animals as a result of this sub humane treatment by former slave owners. Toni Morrison uses animal imagery to more effectively emphasize the relation between the brutal and dehumanizing experiences in the South with the actual barbaric dispositions of white slave owners. The first scene in the novel when a character directly involving Paul D's question of self identity is seen during a scene in the barn where he compares his freedom to a roosters. Paul D maintains a generally strong willed attitude when confronting torment by his slave owners, as shown in this incident ... Get more on HelpWriting.net ...

  • 5. The Use Of Animal Imagery In Fairyland More generally, animal imagery stresses the dark and frightening elements of Fairyland. When Titania is about to rest in the woods, her fairies perform a soliloquy or lullaby, to ward off any vile creatures that would wish to harm Titania, and to make her feel safe. "You spotted snakes with double tongue, Thorny hedgehogs, be not seen; Newts and blindworms, do no wrong, Come not near our Fairy Queen. (II, ii, 9–12). Weaving spiders, come not here; Hence, you long–legged spinners, hence! Beetles black, approach not near; Worm nor snail, do no offense. (II, ii, 20–23). Blindworms, snakes, newts, spiders and beetles are all insects and animals that terrify or disturb the average human. Some humans keep hedgehogs as pets, thus lowering their scare factor, yet the 'thorny' description reminds the reader of their potential for harm and danger. Both Fairyland and its creep creatures have the potential for deception and evil or can be harmless and lighthearted. The key words of "double tongue" and "be not seen," are especially troublesome as this hints that the terrifying animals of the human world that are not usually seen are present in this world. The animal imagery in this passage depicts a creepier Fairyland that is more of a nightmare than a dream. Oberon matches the harsh and creepy descriptions of the fairies when he wishes that Titania fall in love with an undesirable creature. He suggests a "cat or bear," a "boar with bristled hair," or "some vile thing" (II, ii, ... Get more on HelpWriting.net ...

  • 7. Animal Imagery And The Classical Period Essay The use of animal imagery in Greek literature initially appears easy to understand as it is one of the simplest types of comparison found in poetry from European tradition. In fact, Western culture seems to encourage us to contrast the human world with that of the animal. This habit makes it easy to assume that no profound meaning can truly be drawn from such a clichéd analogy. I have not found this to be the case however when analysing the use of animal imagery to describe women in the Classical period. Animal imagery, particularly that relating to birds and horses, is used ingeniously across the period to dissect and often criticise the base nature of women. Women were seen as closer to the natural realm than men and something to be feared but is it an overgeneralization to suggest that all Greek authors utilise animal imagery when describing women to negative effect? In this essay I will attempt to illustrate Greek authors' reasons for using animal imagery to describe women and whether Walcott is right to suggest attitudes towards women in literature and in the Greek world in general were 'conditioned by man's fear of women's sexuality' (1984: 45). One of the most distinctive qualities of Homeric epic is the extensive use of simile, drawn almost entirely from nature. His characters are likened to 'almost every aspect of the natural world, from locusts to lightning and from bats to beans' (Gariépy 1973: 89). Homer's use of animal imagery, although most often expressed ... Get more on HelpWriting.net ...

  • 9. Animal Imagery In Yann Martel's Life Of Pi In Yann Martel's Life of Pi, Pi shares a tough adventure with Richard Parker, which is a tiger, in Pi's imaginary story. However, in part 3 of the book, when Mr. Okamoto and Mr. Chiba have a talk with Pi, Pi tells another story, which is what really happens in his adventure. Pi doesn't want to show his adventure without animal imagery. In Yann Martel's Life of Pi, Pi wants to show his story through the use of animal imagery because it makes the story more tolerable, humane, and also makes him feel less guilty about his action in his adventure. In Life of Pi, Pi tells his adventure in two versions. One is the story with animals, and another one is the story without animals. However, in both versions of the story, the story with animals is more tolerable for people to read. At the end of the interview between Pi, Mr. Okamoto, and Mr. Chiba, they are discussing which story is better: "So tell me...... The story with animals is the better story'" (Martel 398). Pi asks Mr. Chiba and Mr. Okamoto which version of his adventure is better. Then, both of them prefer the story with animals. In ... Show more content on Helpwriting.net ... In his story, Pi uses animal imagery to tell his adventure because it can make him feel guiltless. At the end of the interview between Pi, Mr. Chiba, and Mr. Okamoto, Pi says: "Thank you. And so it goes with god" (Martel 399). Pi asks Mr. Okamoto and Mr. Chiba which story is better, and both of them think the story with animals is better. Pi then cries. In Life of Pi, Pi mentions he believes in three religions. However, in all the three religions he believes in, the thing he does in the adventure are guilty, for instance, killing the cook, eating the cook and also the animals in the sea. If the characters change into animals, Pi can feel less guilty because killing a human is worse than killing an animal.

Animal Imagery In Hamlet So finally it comes to this: a Shakespearean play is a spiritual experience a spatial organization 'concerned with transcendental realities,'[ibidem] the visionary whole," an expanded metaphor", and those figures which the ethical critics call 'characters' are simply "conceptions" or "passion unveiled" or a "theme" or a "symbol". If one looks askance in ones bewilderment and haltingly murmur that this "expanded metaphor" is cast in the mould of a drama and has characters who embodied with human sentiments which are manifested in such real human factors as greed, lust, ambition, frustration, rage, jealousy, revenge, racial hatred, religious bigotry etc., that they talk and behave like human–beings, that they have eyes, hands, organs, dimensions, ... Show more content on Helpwriting.net ... Professor Oscar James Campbell said that through imagery Shakespeare "made his figurative language intensely an auditor's response to particular situations and also used it to create and individualize his characters." Bradley showed that the imagery helped to intensify certain themes (for example, the animal imagery in 'Hamlet' and the fire imagery in Coriolanus') in the plays. Spurgeon demonstrated that the "Cluster" of imagery and certain "recruitment images" revealed Shakespeare's "personality, temperament and thought," together with the "themes and characters of the plays". Clemen showed that through imagery, Shakespeare reveals characteristic features of his characters and the atmosphere of the play. Such study of imagery is purposeful and pertinent. But claims such as the purpose of imagery in Shakespeare is to probe the "transcendental realities, or, the imagery is inalienably related to a "developing pattern", or, Shakespeare's play is a poem where characters are non–existent, sound rather preposterous and make us legitimately think that the critic is "using the façade of the Cavendish to hide a convective of impressionist anarchists".

  • 13. Animal Imagery In Aesop's Fables ' Tammy Chung Ms. Hottie Dollenberg 9ELB 17 May. 2018 The Importance of Animal Imagery Have you ever read a book that has animals as the characters in it? Using animals as characters or using the characteristics, instincts, and behavior in writing a book is called animal imagery. Writers often use animal imagery as characters or to describe the condition of the characters in a story. Animal imagery is an important part of literature, movies, and storytellings. Animal imagery reflects the relationship between humans and animals. Many children stories have animal imagery, such as Dora, The Three Little Pigs, Winnie the Pooh, Mickey Mouse, Finding Nemo, Tom and Jerry, Zootopia and the stories in Aesop's Fables. Authors create "mental images" for ... Show more content on Helpwriting.net ... In Lord of the Flies, the author uses the pig head(lord of the flies) to symbolize the power of evil and control. In the novel, the boys were stuck on an island, their condition evokes the beast and raw animalism within them. Another example is Animal Farm, the characters in the book were animals, but they act as humans, have established a government, and overthrow the farmer. The story refers to the Russian Revolution. An example of using animal imagery in movies is the Life of Pi, the author has used many symbolisms in the story. For example, Richard Parker, the tiger who lived on the sea with Pi, symbolizes Pi's evil side. A book that has used animal imagery seems more likely to be a children's book, using animal imagery to write a novel or a book for adults could make it become more childish. Animal imagery is used for describing the relationship between humans and animals. Using it could represent the spiritual meaning of a historical event, for example: Animal imagery is an important part of movies, novels, poems, and all the storytelling. It has a long history, writers use it to write children's books, historical novels, and also fictional novels. It's also used as a material in many movies to make the movie more interesting and entertaining. We are still using animal imagery in nowadays and its history will keep on ...

Through Olds, we are shown that race is simply just skin color, and she takes on how we view people and life at face value. "On the Subway" gives a historical point–of–view of how some White–Americans have, and sometimes still deem African–Americans. The comparison of the appearance of the boy sitting across from her to that of a cold, casual mugger, sets the tone; mysterious and gripping. The speaker, in her furs and briefcase makes her an appealing target. Her tone implies that she feels she is in danger of this dark–skinned boy. Throughout the beginning of poem, the speaker contrasts herself from the boy. Her light skin against his dark features. Her costly animal furs and his blood red hood. The speaker then shifts her views from physical to introspective. The use of visual imagery and animal imagery in On The Subway lets readers see the differences in the characters while also conveying their vast similarities. ...

In lines 13 through 17, it is very obvious that she is fearful "I look at his raw face, he looks at my fur coat, and I don't know if i am in his power– he could take my coat so easily, my briefcase, my life–". Yet the speaker's tone shifts to sympathetic at line 18 of the poem when she realizes the color of their skin dictates their lives; "the way i am living off his life, eating the steak he does not eat, as if i am taking the food from his mouth".

  • 17. Essay on Animal Imagery in A Doll's House Animal Imagery in A Doll's House Animal imagery in Henrick Ibsen's play, A Doll's House is a critical part of the character development of Nora, the protagonist. Ibsen uses creative, but effective, animal imagery to develop Nora's character throughout the play. He has Torvald call his wife "his little lark"(Isben) or "sulky squirrel"(Isben) or other animal names throughout the play. He uses a lot of 'bird' imagery–calling her many different bird names. The name Torvald uses directly relates to how he feels about her at the time. The animals Ibsen chooses to use are related to how Nora is acting, or how she needs to be portrayed. For instance: Not even a dozen lines into Act I, Torvald asks (referring to Nora), "Is that ... Show more content on Helpwriting.net ... Throughout the play Torvald refers to Nora as his lark, or songbird; two birds that are stereotypically peaceful, carefree, happy birds. At least on the outside. On the inside the birds may have many struggles, but they don't show it, much like Nora avoids doing it. Torvald does not know the difference. He thinks Nora is always happy, never sad, and energetic–characteristics of the song bird (at least on the out side). Later, in Act II, Nora tells Torvald that she would "be a wood nymph and dance for you in the moonlight"(Isben). A wood nymph is a beautiful hummingbird that is graceful in flight, much like Nora wants to be for Torvald when she dances. She wants Torvald to be happy with her, because she knows he is going to find out about the note. In Act II, Nora is begging Torvald to let Krogstad keep his job at the bank–which Torvald is the manger for–so Krogstad won't ask for the money back the she owes him. Nora gets quite worked up about all of this. Torvald finally calms her down, and notices her "frightened dove's eyes"(Isben). A dove has always been a symbol of peace–keeping, and Ibsen uses it effectively to show her efforts to maintain peace and order. Torvald notices that she is just trying keep things right, and refers to her as a dove. The animal imagery is consistent throughout the play, usually with references to happy, cheerful animals.

Although this play is written in Shakespearian language, it is not difficult to understand the animal references and how they contribute to communicating important themes. By comparing people to beasts, their true evilness or goodness is shown through. The dehumanizing animalistic terms and dramatic imagery, develop themes of alienation and racism in the play and also provide insight and clarify the contrast between the characters and how they are perceived.

All of these lead to the perception that Iago is trying to perpetuate, that Othello is unfit for the gentile Desdemona. Iago continues his campaign to malign Othello with animal imagery, by telling Brabantio that "your daughter and the Moor are now making the beast with two backs" (Act 1 Scene 1). Each time, Brabantio must see in his mind, his virginal white daughter being molested by a black beast, nevermind that his daughter is engaging in sexual activity. Iago knows his relentless use of symbolism plays into society's opinion of interracial marriages as 'good vs. evil' where the black Othello is the evil. The animal terminology also dehumanizes Desdemona, turning her into a sexual object, being as unable to control her beastly urges as Othello, or being turned into a beast with sexual urges by Othello.

Animal Imagery in Timothy Findley’s The Wars Essays Animal Imagery in Timothy Findley's The Wars Sigmund Freud once argued that "our species has a volcanic potential to erupt in aggression . . . [and] that we harbour not only positive survival instincts but also a self–destructive 'death instinct', which we usually displace towards others in aggression" (Myers 666). Timothy Findley, born in 1930 in Toronto, Canada, explores our human predilection towards violence in his third novel, The Wars. It is human brutality that initiates the horrors of World War I, the war that takes place in this narrative. Findley dedicated this novel to the memory of his uncle, Thomas Irving Findley, who 'died at home of injuries inflicted in the First World War" (Cude 75) and may have propelled him to feel ...

Robert appears to have a strong kinship with his animal counterparts. After enlisting in the army, Robert takes a run out on the prairie, where he encounters a coyote. He instinctively begins to follow the creature, and it leads him to a valley where it stops to drink at a small pond. As it drinks, "the sound . . . [crosses] the distance between them and . . . [seems] to satisfy his own thirst" (The Wars 28). Before the coyote leaves, it turns and "[looks] directly at him . . . and [barks] . . .The coyote had known he was there the whole time: maybe the whole of the run across the prairie. Now it was telling Robert that the valley was vacant: safe–and Robert could proceed to the water's edge and drink" (28). Later that night, as he sits alone, Robert finds himself "wishing that someone would howl" (28). Robert also seems to have a special bond with birds, which often appear in the novel, frequently at times of crisis for Robert. After unwittingly leading his men through the fog onto a collapsing dike, the air is suddenly "filled with the shock waves of wings . . .

It is a play that touches on symbols through animal imagery. These references to animals as Miss Julie shows the idea that "human beings are the products of the forces surrounding them". Strindberg adopted animals to parallel characters and convey ideas dramatically which would be otherwise be kind of inappropriate with explicit representation of mortals.

Here we get to see Miss Julie putting his ex–husband in a horrible situation and treating him like a child.

  • 25. Theme Of Animal Imagery In Macbeth Shakespeare is unarguably famous for his creative and vivid use of imagery in his acclaimed plays. Animal imagery is one literary device he uses often to develop theme and characterize individuals in his plays. One of his most prominent tragedies, Macbeth, contains many examples of animal imagery, most of which characterizes Macbeth himself. Animal imagery at the beginning of the tragedy, such as the comparison of Macbeth to an eagle and a lion, characterize him as loyal, brave, and honorable. As the play develops, however, the animal imagery used, like a predatory bird and a ferocious beast, begins to characterize him as power hungry, violent, and truly inhumane. In his tragedy Macbeth, William Shakespeare uses animal imagery to reflect ... Show more content on Helpwriting.net ... Falcons are usually predators to smaller and less threatening birds such as mousing owls, and not considered their prey. In this unnatural scenario, however; the falcon is the prey, and the mousing owl is the predator. Macbeth is symbolic of the mousing owl, conquering the more powerful and usually predatory falcon, represented by Duncan. Although this may be a success in Macbeth's eyes, it signifies the beginning of his callous nature as he now turns against his once revered and powerful king without regret or emotion. Shakespeare demonstrates Macbeth's downfall to a king trapped in his madness in the latter portion of Macbeth by comparing Macbeth to a predatory bird and a fierce bear. In Act 4, Macduff, one of Macbeth's enemies, has fled to England, and Shakespeare describes Lady Macduff as the "poor wren, the most diminutive of birds, will fight, her young ones in the nest, against the owl" (4.2.12–13). Lady Macduff is the innocuous prey, while Macbeth is the owl, a cruel predator; turning merciless, devoid of emotion. and choosing to kill an innocent lady and her children. Macbeth's reckless ruthlessness shows his decline in emotion, he isn't killing for honor and as a job anymore.

It is, if not, the most important theme and factor centered around Maus graphic novels. By looking at the cover, we can see that the book is about issues during the Holocaust but Spiegelman deals with these issues in a different way. As we look deeper into the story we begin to notice that Spiegelman isn't just choosing animals he likes and placing them in the plot.

In Maus, Jews are rarely seen socializing with other animals revealing the system of classification or how other races interacted and viewed status. The Jews kept to themselves and welcome people of their kind. This is shown when Vladek was immediately accepted into the Zylderbergs, or Anja's family, home with full trust. They were willing to welcome Vladek into their home without them getting to know him, due to being a mouse (Spiegelman 21 Panel 1). It was undeniable that the Jews were also capable of being racist. They were known to only trust their own kind and this is shown in multiple instances. In Maus II, Artie, his wife Francoise, and Vladek encounter a hitchhiker on their way home from the store (Spiegelman 258 Panel 7). Vladek is cruel and hesitate about taking the hitchhiker because he was black. Furious, Francoise called him out as a hypocrite by stereotyping African–Americans and after calling the man a "shvartser". Vladek wasn't able to see the connection do to his stubborn nature.

  • 29. Theme Of Animal Imagery In A Midsummer Night's Dream An animal is any "living organism other than a human being" (OED). When the definition of animals directly divides them from humankind, examples of half–human, half–animal creatures are meaningful yet complicated symbols. A Midsummer Night's Dream plays with the mystical and supernatural by frequently breaking down the barriers between animals and humans. Fairies are neither human nor animal, and they live in a world, Fairyland, which is separate from and invisible to humans. Considering the definition of animal is anything that is not human, the world of fae is unconsciously rooted in animalistic imagery. This world is also home to other half–human creatures such as satyrs, centaurs, nymphs, mermaids and sprites. A Midsummer Night's Dream thus highlights and breaks down the barriers between the human and non–human world, and with seemingly little purpose. This essay will analyze the use of animal imagery, particularly through the donkey and serpent, to argue that animal imagery intensifies the emotions of the play, from exaggerating comedic elements to accentuating the dark and nightmarish aspects of Fairyland. To provide some context, Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream interferes with love through the deception of fairies. When Hermia's father insists she marry Demetrius, she runs away with Hermia and Lysander. Contrastingly, Helena chases after an uninterested Demetrius, helplessly in love.

Shakespeare uses imagery of great imaginative depth and resonance to convey his major themes and to heighten the readers experience of the play. There are some predominant image patterns. In my opinion, it is the imagery of animals and savage monsters that leave the most lasting impression. The imagination is filled with pictures of wild and menacing creatures, ravenous in their appetites, cruel in their instincts. The underlying emphasis in such imagery is on the vileness of which humanity is capable. It is often used in connection with Goneril and Regan.

I also found a close association between the animal images and the pervasive suggestion of bodily pain, horror and suffering in the play. As well as savage wolves and other predators, the imagery feature stinging adders, gnawing rats, whipped, whining, mad and biting dogs. King Lear is set in a brutal and savage prehistoric world, a Britain where violence, torture and physical suffering are all so commonplace as to be unremarkable. All through the play we are conscious of strife, buffeting, strain and bodily suffering to the point of agony. the images involving the human body are particularly grim. We have the repeated image of the body in anguished movement, tugged, wrenched, beaten, tortured, and finally broken on a rack. even death is seen by Kent as a welcome release from torture, which is almost the permanent condition of those who live in the Lear world. As Lear is dying, Kent makes the appeal: "O let him pass! He hates him/That would upon the rack of this tough world/ Stretch him out longer". This image of the world as a torture chamber darkens the closing moments of the play.

In novels Maus II: And Here My Troubles Began, by Art Spiegelman, and Night, by Elie Wiesel, both authors use literary devices to exemplify animalistic attributes found within the story. Elie Wiesel uses animal imagery to describe the characters in the novel, Night as opposed to Spiegelman, who uses animal metaphor to represent characters in the graphic novel, Maus II: And Here My Troubles Began.

In Night, Elie Wiesel utilizes animal imagery to convey the theme ... Show more content on Helpwriting.net ... Throughout the story of Maus II: And Here My Troubles Began, cats and mice are used metaphorically to represent Nazis and Jews. Pigs and frogs are also used metaphorically, however, due to their lack of relationship with the cat and mouse metaphor, they do not add on to the effectiveness in relaying the theme of identity being shaped by adversity. (Spiegelman 93–94) These pages are the only ones that the frog appears in with only a minor role in which he offers to share Vladek a box of food. The brief interaction does not add any significance to the cat and mouse metaphor seen throughout the graphic novel because the frog has no impact or change on Vladek, thus making the animal metaphor less effective. Another reason why the animal metaphor is also less effective is how misrepresenting the stereotypes can be. The pigs for example are usually stereotyped as self centered and lazy animals. However, (Spiegelman 92) the pig doctor who helps Vladek's injured hand directly contradicts the stereotype that pigs are self centered. Spiegelman's use of stereotyping and lack of other animals hinders the effectiveness of animal metaphor in the theme. One could argue that the lack of images in Night could possibly allow readers to miss information, however, pictures aren't everything into understanding what is going on. "Dragging himself on all fours."(Wiesel 101) This quote offers the reader a visualization on how animalistic the Jews have become, ultimately proving that Elie Wiesel's use of animal imagery is more effective than Spiegelman's animal ...

Medea's "Ways[being] too wild" is a way of the Author showing that she is becoming less and less of a mother to her children and more of an animal that is she is uneasy because she is weak due to her unnatural behavior towards her own flesh and blood. Therefore, the motif of animal imagery shows Medea as a weak and powerless woman at the start of the play in the eyes of those around her and herself. Despite Medea's weak state, later on the animal imagery shows how strong she becomes and how she gains power. One example of this is when Medea looks at her at her sons, while the nurse taking care of the boys and Medea in their home she watches them and notices that it is not a look of mother's love "yet it's with a look of a lioness" with her glare as if she "just gave birth" (Euripides 6).

In using the comparison of Hydra, the many headed monster, to Cassio explained how Cassio's burden would be lifted if he only had more mouths to explain everything he had to say at one time. In Act Three Iago once again tries to manipulate another character in the play. This time he told Othello of an alleged affair that Cassio and Desdemona were having.

The dystopian bestseller, Fahrenheit 451, written by Ray Bradbury is filled with various symbols, imagery, and themes. Montag, the fireman, lives in a futuristic society where wildlife is disguised as medical instruments, robotic machines, and warped representations. Throughout the novel, the idea of animals is a recurring symbol that illustrates the theme of perversion of nature. Animal motifs add significance to the narrative when Mildred, the wife of Montag, is treated with a snakelike mechanism. Bradbury's intent to use an animal metaphor is to enlighten the reader about how wildlife is misrepresented during the work of literature. Within the world of destruction he created, Bradbury explains the lack of construction; therefore, the natural order is distorted. Over the course of the writing, creatures portray the corrupt environment; for instance, Montag describes, "They had this machine. They had two machines, really.

Lennie approached, drew back, approached again" (ch1, p7) wrote author John Steinbeck, in his classic novella Of Mice and Men. Steinbeck uses animal imagery and symbolism throughout the novel, especially in the character of Lenny Small, to reveal certain truths about the human condition. Lennie has a mental disability that prevents him from interacting and communicating with humans on a normal level. His inability to communicate effectively has led to dangerous situations for him and his friend George. In the novel, the animal imagery is used to reveal the way that humans, are 'outsider', are often viewed and treated by others as animals or animal–like. Lennie's innocence and inability to recognize his own strength is shown through his interaction with the mice. He innocently intends to pet the mice but kills them because he does not recognize his own brute strength. At the beginning of the chapter, Steinbeck expresses the extrabodily greatness of Lennie's size and strength by comparing him to an animal at the beginning of the chapter. "He walked heavily, dragging his feet a little the way a bear drags his paws" (Steinbeck, p9). Steinbeck strengthens this comparison by stating, "Lennie dabbled his paws in the water" (Steinbeck, p3). Lennie's strength is also described in a scene where he is fighting Curley.

The dogs emphasize horror, the birds show irony, and the butterfly represents Santiago Nasar's innocence. Marquez uses these animals to provide mystery which creates a suspenseful atmosphere. Marquez uses rabbits to emphasize that Santiago Nasar is a sensitive person. Victoria Guzman, who is the cook, says "he was just like his father... a shit" (10). She says this because Santiago Nasar's father, Ibrahim Nasar, used to seduce Victoria Guzman and make love to her and she is afraid that Santiago Nasar will do the same to her daughter, Divina Flor. Although Victoria Guzman sees Santiago Nasar as a bad person, Santiago is a caring person, "by his nature, Santiago Nasar was merry and peaceful, and openhearted" (8).

  • 57. The Use of Animal Imagery in "The Wars" by Timothy Findley. The Use of Animal Imagery in The Wars Timothy Findley's The Wars describes the history of Robert Ross, a Second Lieutenant in the Canadian Army, during World War 1. The story of Robert Ross is a candid recollection of a young man coming of age in the midst of horror and confusion associated with the "war to end all wars". Presented in the form of an archivist trying to piece together the past from pictures and letters, the narrative account is full of rich imagery and deep meaning. The abundant animal imagery in the novel is used to parallel and reveal the character of Robert Ross, foreshadow the situations he finds himself in, and symbolize hope amidst war.

The rabbits reminded him of Rowena because she shares the same characteristics as her rabbits such as fragility and innocence. Therefore he risks "a blow on [his] head...to help the helpless [animals]" (Quenneville 1). He even helps a rat, an animal associated with disease and death, escape a muddy grave. His conduct greatly contrasts that of the soldiers who kill and torture cats and vermin. This only further exemplifies his compassion for the lives of even of the smallest of creatures. Among other animal imagery, birds appear frequently throughout the story in times of crisis. The birds often foreshadow dangers that lie ahead. For instance, when Robert's team takes a wrong turn, "the fog is full of noises"(80) of birds. Then the birds fly out of the ditch and disappear. Robert and Poole know that "[there] must be something terribly wrong...but neither one knew how to put it into words. The birds, being gone, had taken some mysterious presence with them. There was an awful sense of void––as if the world had been emptied" (81). The birds return and when Robert nears the collapsing dike and "one of the birds [flies] up cut[s] across Robert's path" as if it is trying to prevent him from going any further. Robert does not heed the warning and almost dies in the sinking mud. Another ominous bird appears when Robert and his men are close to enemy lines.

  • 59. Chronicle Of A Death Foretold Animal Imagery Essay The Animals Within Unless you don't eat meat, you've probably had to explain why it is okay to kill animals, but not okay to kill humans? In a Chronicle of a Death Foretold, Gabriel Marquez explains that neither are okay but sometimes both need to happen anyways. This occurs when the cook is seen cleaning the rabbits for dinner, and is begged to be more humane. Likewise, the pity and guilt Santiago feels for the pigs that the Vicario brothers slaughtered. As well as, how dogs are used as a metaphor, to represent the community. Garcia Marquez uses animal imagery to depict the brutal murder of Santiago Nasar. At the beginning of the story, Marquez compares Nasar's death to the death of the pigs. Pigs are not a well–liked animal, and are often associated with negative feelings, which in turn portray Santiago as an unlikeable character. This forces the readers to only pay attention to these characteristics and see nothing else about him. The motif of pigs is used throughout the novel, as a means to show the degrading status of Santiago. "He was carved up like a pig an hour later" (Marquez, 4), this is an exceptional ...

More often than not, dogs are shown as a loyal, protective and an obedient symbol – man's best friend if you will. Yet, throughout the novel, these dogs are used as a representation of just how disloyal the town is. "The dogs, aroused by the smell of death, increased the uneasiness" (Marquez, 73). Specifically, Santiago's own "loyal" dog tried to eat his insides during the autopsy, the same way the dogs had eaten the rabbits. These dogs are a metaphor which are used to illustrate the loyalty of the community. The town had all been aware of the murder to come, yet instead of warning him, they became excited by the idea.

Within chapter nine, Simon discovers the beast for what it really is; meanwhile Ralph and Piggy decide to join the other bigguns for a feast with Jack's tribe. The boys play and dine, and circle together for a "dance" when Simon stumbles out of the forest to tell them of his discovery, and lands in the circle, which results in him being brutally beat to death. This attack on Simon demonstrates how the fear of the beast that the boys are experiencing is affecting their better judgment, and pushes their morals to the side, just so that they can feel safe. In chapter 9 of Lord of the Flies, William Golding employs repetition, animal imagery, and natural imagery to convey the theme that fear can corrupt humans, which pushes them to engage in unspeakable acts. ...

For example, before Kino finds the pearl, he examines the ants "with the detachment of God while a dusty ant frantically tried to escape the sand trap an ant lion had dug for him.", but after he finds the pearl and tries to sell it for the greatest value, Kino "put his foot in their [ants'] path. Then the column climbed over his instep and continued on its way..." (70).

  • 65. Animal Imagery In The White Tiger By Aravind Adiga Through the life of Balram and his journey from rags to riches in The White Tiger, Aravind Adiga attempts to portray, in an exaggerated form, the daily life and corruption of India. One of the most prominent literary devices that Adiga incorporates into the novel is animal imagery. The title of the novel, certain characters, and the societal hierarchy as a whole are among the many aspects of the novel that are related to animals. Through this imagery, Adiga highlights the eat or be eaten, jungle lifestyle that encompasses India. The most apparent animal imagery is introduced to the reader before the novel is even opened. The title, The White Tiger, obviously refers to the jungle cat. The white tiger is seen as the smartest and most noble animal in the wild. These characteristics create a special aura around the white tiger. In the novel, Balram is referred to as the white tiger by his teacher in school. Balram's teacher states, "'You, young man, are an intelligent, honest, vivacious fellow in this crowd of thugs and idiot,'" and goes on to assign him the nickname of the white tiger (30). Balram describes India as being divided into two distinct sections that he calls the light and the dark. Those in the light are those with wealth and power, while those in the darkness are the repressed and poor of the society. Balram was born into a family that was not the elite of the society.

  • 67. Animal Imagery In John Steinbeck's Of Mice And Men Animal Imagery in Of Mice and Men One of the main differences between humans and animals is opposable thumbs. Aside from that, humans and animals have a lot more in common than you would think. We hunt for our food like wolves do. We care for and look after each other like elephants do. Our parents protect us like male lions do. In fact, humans and chimps act so much alike it's scary. Lennie in Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck is often compared to an animal when speaking about his actions and body features. Even though John Steinbeck uses animal imagery throughout Of Mice and Men to help show that Lennie lacks common sense, the animal imagery is also used to show the reader that Lennie is innocent and childlike, and has a great work ethic. Lennie definitely lacks common sense, much like an animal does. For one, Lennie would catch mice because they were soft and he liked to pet them. But, whenever he would pet them, he would pet them or squeeze them too hard because he forgot how small they are and end up killing them. He would also get mad at them for biting him, and also ended up killing it. He accidentally killed his puppy and Curley's wife, too, because he forgot his own strength. On page 3, when Lennie and George reached the clearing they would be staying at one night, Steinbeck says, "His huge companion dropped his blankets and flung himself down and drank from the surface of the green pool; drank with long gulps, snorting the water like a horse."

Imagery In George Orwell's Animal Farm Actions speak louder than words, which is why the Party and Napoleon must be delicate in their own personal advancements; or throw the spotlight onto an issue that their subjects can latch onto. Orwell brings life to his text though the use of political techniques, which include the use of a figurehead and a scapegoat to win the loyalty of the masses. Hence, Orwell created the figureheads of Big Brother for 1984, and Napoleon for Animal Farm. However, life in both novel become almost uninhabitable, which was conveyed through Orwell's use of imagery "Down in the street little eddies of wind were whirling dust and torn paper into spirals, and though the sun was shining and the sky a harsh blue, there seemed to be no colour in anything."

Such actions include a misguided sense of loyalty, where Napoleon acquires nine puppies, whom are stupidly loyal and are easily manipulated to bend to Napoleon's command.

  • 71. Animal Imagery In Timothy Findley's The Wars Essay Animal Imagery In Timothy Findley's The Wars Works Cited Missing The abundant animal imagery in Timothy Findley's book The Wars is used to develop characterization and theme. The protagonist, Robert Ross, has a deep connection with animals that reflects his personality and the situations that he faces. This link between Robert and the animals shows the reader that human nature is not much different than animal nature. The animals in this story are closely related to the characters, especially the character of Robert. Rodwell acknowledges Robert's close union with animals when he draws Robert in his sketchbook as "the only human form" among sketches of animals (155). When Robert sees the drawing, he notices that "the shading [is] ... Show more content on Helpwriting.net ... One of the horses breaks its leg and Robert is ordered to kill it. He shoots it once, but the horse is still alive and its mane is described as "a tangle of rattlesnakes" (68). The snakes symbolize the feelings of immorality that are welling up inside of Robert. He knows that killing an animal is against his moral values, but his role in the army is more important to him. He feels that he has "to show his nerve and ability as an officer" (66). Robert finally shoots the horse behind its ear and kills it. This is the first time he intentionally kills a living creature in the story. Robert's ethics return to him and take priority over military obedience when he tries to rescue horses from the cruelties of war. Robert disobeys Captain Leather's orders and tries to free the horses from the barn that is threatened by falling shells. Unfortunately, the horses die before he can save them all and Robert is filled with anger, shooting Captain Leather between the eyes for causing their death. From this moment on, he rebels against anyone who does not respect his love for animals. This rebellion continues when he barricades himself in a barn with the horses and shouts, "[w]e shall not be taken" (212).

  • 73. Animal Imagery In Fairy Tales Over time, historians have interpreted the use of animal imagery in western folk and fairy tales as a means for providing entertainment and moral lessons to western society. However, many historians have different ideas about how animal imagery and stereotypes actually affect a society besides keeping away from wolves and bears and such. Dr. Jack Zipes, a professor of German and comparative literature, promotes in his paper, "What Makes a Repulsive Frog So Appealing: Memetics and Fairy Tales," that the story of "The Frog Prince" is actually a story about the strategies of mating and how the frog symbolizes its appearance of an unsuitable mate to a suitable one. In a completely different turn on fictional fairy tales influencing society, Dr. Anna Idström and Dr. Elisabeth Piirainen, experts on endangered metaphors, instead argue that animal imagery in metaphors, idioms and tales of the Inari Saami people are actually based on real animal behavior in their work, "The wolf – an evil and ever–hungry beast or a nasty thief? Conventional Inari Saami metaphors and widespread idioms in contrast." Finally, in addition to how specific animal stereotypes and imagery affect elements of western society, Dr. Lewis Seifert, a professor of French literature, tackles the subject of animal–human hybrids in fairy tales and how they are able to separate their "animal half" from their "human half" in "Animal–Human Hybridity in d'Aulnoy's "Babiole" and "Prince Wild Boar'."
