A brief history of the term is required for us to see why the term should be deemed problematical.

The Function of Symbolism in Gabriel Garcia Marquez's A Very Old Man with Enormous Wings - The Function of Symbolism in Gabriel Garcia Marquez's 'A Very Old Man with Enormous Wings' In Gabriel Garcia Marquez's "A Very Old Man with Enormous Wings" an angel symbolizes the unfamiliar.

A Very Old Man with Enormous Wings - The residents of the little town in the story “A Very Old Man with Enormous Wings,” by Gabriel Marquez, did not understand that they very well could have been in the midst of one of gods’ heavenly creatures.

But since he didn’t fit the exact “standards” of grandeur that the people thought that angels should have, they disregarded him, and set him aside as being irrelevant and “…father Gonzaga was forever cured of his insomnia…” (403)....   [tags: Literary Analysis, Gabriel Marquez] 916 words

Abuses of Power in I Only Came To Use The Phone, and Lord Of The Flies - The abuses of power displayed in The Lord of the Flies and “I Only Came to Use the Phone” show how power when given or assumed can change the person who has been elevated above others as well as changing the person who is being abused. When people in authority abuse this power, they can affect people’s lives and well being. A person that abuses power can often weaken the spirit of the person they are abusing and will change the person. In “I Only Came to Use the Phone,” the quote "Herculina standing in the doorway, Maria gave up"(Gabriel Garcia, pg 86) shows us how a person that will abuse or hurt us will weaken our spirit....   [tags: garcia marquez, william golding]
