According to the American Heritage Dictionary innocence is defined as uncorrupted by evil, malice, without wrongdoing, sinless, and not experienced....   [tags: William Blake Infant Sorrow]

From a post-colonialist standpoint, one must take in account both works to get an accurate image of the war. The Sorrow of War is an excellent counterpoint because it is truthful....   [tags: Things They Carried Sorrow War Essays]

On Another’s Sorrow. - On Another’s Sorrow. There is a strong religious theme running throughout this poem. Black uses the idea of sorrow to show, and how we deal with it to show the difference between humans and God. He does this by splitting the poem into two halves and looking at how a person and then God would deal with sorrow. Blake asks several questions, as it is in first person at this point I feel that it is Blake asking the questions, which are, ‘Can I see another’s woe, And not be in sorrow too. Can I see another’s grief, And not seek for kind relief?’ This is an example of Blake’s use for the rhetorical question, which stirs thoughts of how we cope with sorrow, which is shown when he asks, if I can not feel sorrow when I see another feeling sorrow?, and when I see another feeling grief can I not go and find relief from it....   [tags: English Literature] 686 words

Virtue in Frankenstein by Mary Shelley - Virtue in Frankenstein by Mary Shelley In the book Frankenstein Virtue is found at the margins of society more often than at its center. If this is so, Victor Frankenstein's Monster is a real find. His creature is an isolate of great sensitivity, kindness, and insight. In reality the Monster was not a bad person. He is quite distress and asks Victor, "What was I. Of my creation I was absolutely ignorant: but I knew that I possessed no money, no friends, no kind of property.... Was I then a monster, a blot upon the earth from which all men fled, and whom all men disowned?" (Shelley 89)....   [tags: Papers] 436 words

Mother-Daughter Communication in Amy Tan's The Joy Luck Club - Mother-Daughter Communication in Amy Tan's The Joy Luck Club       Of the many stories involving the many characters of "The Joy Luck Club", I believe the central theme connecting them all is the inability of the mothers and their daughters to communicate effectively.    The mothers all have stories of past struggles and hard times yet do not believe their daughters truly appreciate this fact.  The mothers of the story all want their daughters to never have to go through the struggles they themselves had to go through, yet they are disappointed when their daughters grow up and do not exhibit the respect or strength of their mothers.  This is the ironic paradox of the story.    The Chinese mothers came to the United States to escape the difficult life they led in China and to start fresh in the United States.  They did not want their children to grow up as they had.  The short story in the beginning of the book describes this feeling.  "Then the woman and the swan sailed across an ocean many thousands of li wide, stretching their necks toward America.  On her journey she cooed to the swan:  "In America I will have a daughter just like me.  But over there nobody will say her worth is measured by the loudness of her husband's belch.  Over there nobody will look down on her, because I will make her speak only perfect American English.  And over there she will always be too full to swallow any sorrow!  She will know my meaning, because I will give her this swan - a creature that became more than what was hoped for."  Even though this is just a short story before the long one begins and is not actually attributed to any specific character in the story, I believe it accurately describes all the mothers' feelings about their daughters.  They wanted their daughters to live an American life in that they would not be discriminated against or have any sorrow in their lives.  In short, they wanted their daughters to avoid the sorrow and tribulations they had themselves experienced in life.  If this was the only thing they wished for their daughters, it would not be difficult to achieve.  Unfortunately, the wishes of the mothers had a catch to it....   [tags: Joy Luck Club Essays Amy Tan Papers]

Comparing the Trial in The Plague and Hamlet - The Archetype of the Trial in The Plague and Hamlet       Rare is the tale without a conflict, without a challenge to overcome. However, to even reach the challenge the hero must first pass through the Trial. The archetype of the Trial can be found in almost any folktale. King Arthur must draw the sword from the stone to prove himself fit to be king. Hercules must face labors to atone for the murders committed in his madness. It is prominent in other areas of literature as well; it is especially well represented in The Plague by Albert Camus and Hamlet by William Shakespeare....   [tags: comparison compare contrast essays]

Symbolization of Chillingworth as the Devil in Hawthorne's The Scarlet Letter - Nathaniel Hawthorne crammed The Scarlet Letter with religious symbolism. One of the most interesting symbols is that of Chillingworth as the devil. All through the novel there are numerous indications and relations that verify the fact that Chillingworth is a delegate for the king of darkness. One of the various ways Chillingworth serves as the devil’s advocate is by being the antithesis of Reverend Arthur Dimmesdale, the palpable Jesus figure of the narrative. Chillingworth keenly sets out to devastate Dimmesdale, as Hawthorne informs us when referring to Chillingworth's unearthing of Dimmesdale's secret, “All that guilty sorrow, hidden from the world, whose great heart would have pitied and forgiven, to be revealed to him, the Pitiless, to him, the Unforgiving!” The capitalization of the words "Pitiless" and "Unforgiving" confirm that Chillingworth is Satan in human form....   [tags: The Scarlet Letter] 519 words
