Salvation and Meaning in Elementals - Salvation and Meaning in Elementals    At least one of Byatt’s messages, possibly the overriding one in Elementals; is that art, curiosity, and stories save us. I would also agree with the philosophical premise that they do, in fact, give our existences meaning. Since these two facets are linked, I shall be pursuing both threads in my essay. There is ample evidence in this volume that aesthetic expression and desire play an important role in the makeup of characters' lives.

Use of Elemental Imagery in Philip Larkin's High Windows -   "High Windows" is viewed by many as an outcry, a severe description of everyday life that in it's bleakness does not leave space for the finesse or sensuous imagery that is associated with poets such as Wordsworth. However, in his array of supposedly 'harsh' poems one finds many moments of dreamy imagery dealing with an almost religious fascination with the elements, whether in length in "Solar" or as a thought in "Old Fools". What mesmerises him is the continuity of the elements, which constantly outlive the achievements and deeds of man and are in the end all that is left....   [tags: Analysis of Philip Larkin's High Windows] 787 words

Use of Elemental Imagery in Charlotte Bronte's Jane Eyre - Use of Elemental Imagery in Jane Eyre   The use of elemental imagery in Jane Eyre, sustained throughout the novel both metaphorically and literally, is one of Charlotte Brontë's major stylistic devices. The natural opposition of the two elements of water and fire ("the war of the earthly elements", as Jane puts it) highlights the need for the titular heroine to find equilibrium between points identified as extremes. However, as David Lodge notes, "we should be mistaken in looking for a rigidly schematic system of elemental imagery and reference in Jane Eyre"....   [tags: Jane Eyre Essays]

Hell: United Yet Contrasted By Fear - The fundamental ideals behind the afterlife have vastly changed between Grecco-Roman Tartarus and Christian afterlife; specifically pertaining to the idea of hell and punishment. While there are also essential commonalities between the two afterlife views, the adaptation that has occurred over time contrasts the two views harmoniously. Fear is the underlying theme that eventually connects yet juxtaposes the ideas of life after death. Hell threatens a peaceful life after death, it is abnormal where it is not tangible, and has horrifying views associated when referenced by the grotesque nature of punishment that some believe Hell provides....   [tags: Afterlife, Mythology, Religion]
