Journey As Metaphor in Literature - Metaphor is most frequently employed as a literary device in which a word or phrase that ordinarily designates one article is used to designate another, thus making an implicit comparison. Journey serves as an effective metaphor because it can accurately portray many concepts from all walks of life without becoming vague. This feat is accomplished by utilizing the inherent characteristics of the word "journey" itself, as a journey can be representative of a process, physical travel, or any undertaking involving a goal....   [tags: Journey Metaphor Literature ] 1635 words

Symbols and Symbolism in Long Day's Journey into Night -   Symbolism is used throughout O¹Neill¹s Long Day¹s Journey into Night, a portrayal of the  author¹s life.  The three prominent symbols, the fog, the foghorn, and Mary¹s glasses, represent the characters¹ isolation from reality.  The symbols in ³Long Day¹s Journey into  Night² are used to substitute illusion for reality.  Although Mary is the character directly associated with living in illusion, all characters in the play try to hide from the truth in their own ways. At the beginning of the second act, O'Neill notes a change in setting which has taken place since the play opened.  No sunlight comes into the room now  and there is a faint haziness in the air.  This haziness or fog obscures one¹s perception  of the world, and it parallels the attempts of each member of the family to obscure or hide reality.  Tyrone, for example, drinks whiskey to escape his son¹s criticism of how cheap he is.  The reference to fog always has a double meaning in this play,  referring both to the atmosphere and to the family.  Much of the activity carried on by the Tyrone family is under-handed and sneaky, they are always attempting to put something over on somebody  and obscure the truth....   [tags: Long Day's Journey into Night] 659 words

Journey Motif - In literature, the Journey is often a metaphor for discovery.

In addition, religion plays a part in each of these stories. Typically, in journey literature the hero encounters several obstacles that he or she must overcome.

The Journey of the Dialectic - The Journey of the Dialectic ABSTRACT: This paper argues that: a) philosophy generally, and the dialectical tradition in particular, first emerged in Ancient Greece in response to the nihilism and relativism generated by the development of a market economy; b) despite differences between its 'idealist' and 'materialist' wings, it is possible to speak of a basically unified dialectical tradition extending from Socrates, Plato and Aristotle through the great medieval Aristotelians (Ibn Sina, Ibn Rusd, Maimonides, Albertus Magnus, Thomas Aquinas), up to Hegel, Marx and their interpreters, a tradition unified around the proposition that we can rise by rational means to a first principle which in turn serves as a principle of value and a criterion for ethical norms, thus becoming a standard by which to criticize the market order and argue for an alternative allocation of resources; c) the historic difficulties and current crisis of the dialectical tradition arise from a failure to demonstrate that the universe is a teleological system ordered to the perfection of form or the development of increasing levels of organization; and d) recent developments in the physical, biological and social sciences suggest that we may soon be in a position to remedy this difficulty....   [tags: Argumentative Persuasive Philosophy Papers]
