Compare and Contrast: Passage 1: Description of Tom, Passage 2: Gatsby - Compare and Contrast: Passage 1: Description of Tom, Passage 2: Gatsby seen The first passage is a description of Tom. He is portrayed as strongly built: "It was a body capable of enormous leverage-a cruel body." He also seems to be a brutal an supercilious man. Words as "arrogant", "sturdy", "gruff" and "husky" create a mood around him which is quite unpleasant. This description is very objective and we get a clear picture of what Tom looks like. We are also given a description of Tom's voice as being "...a gruff, husky tenor..."

The Power of Light in The Scarlet Letter - The Power of Light in The Scarlet Letter             Since the conception of humanity, man has been fascinated with that presence which illuminates, yet cannot be touched.  Mankind has brought it into his religions, giving it a great deal of importance in his creed.  Following in the footsteps of his ancestors, Nathaniel Hawthorne uses light as a tool of God that illuminates the darkness of human iniquity and exposes its permanence.  He studies the psychological theme of the impossibility of eradicating sin from the human heart in his novel The Scarlet Letter.  The use of light in order to fortify this psychological theme confirms its significance in the novel.  As though he were weaving an elaborate tapestry, Hawthorne meshes light's intense symbolism into his characters' natures until a chef d'oeuvre manifests itself upon the loom of the reader's intellect.  This tapestry serves as a subtle background upon which the characters' sinful hearts are bared....   [tags: Scarlet Letter essays]

The Scarlett Letter - Symbolism at it's best is limitless in conveying a feeling, mood, or atmoshphere that words alone can not define. It can trigger emotion, persuade the reader to question everything they know thus far, or inflict thoughts that, in the most twisted sense of the story, would seem barely justified. Symboloism reaches out to the reader in numerous ways, but no matter what the effect, it's almost always starts as something subconscious. In Nathanial Hawthorn's novel, 'The Scarlet Letter,' there is an immense ammount of symbolism; the structure and flow of progression are both held back by this element....   [tags: essays research papers] 664 words

Shakespeare Often Employs the Imagery of Darkness Throughout Macbeth - Darkness is invariably associated with evil and to a certain extent deception. In our society, darkness tends to be the primary characteristic of evil. A black cat, a dark and stormy night, and a dark alley, for instance, are all modern day symbols of wickedness and evil. Authors many times will use these and other symbols to describe an evil character or setting. In Elizabethan England night air was said to be impure and rheumy and it was the air in which evils were most free since it was not purged by the sunshine....   [tags: Shakespeare, imagery, darkness, Macbeth, plays, th] 763 words

The Details and Techniques of the Paintings of Jan van Eyck and Hans Memlinc - The two painters Jan Van Eyck (c.1390-1441) and Hans Memlinc (d.1494) are both considered great masters of Northern Art. Van Eyck is known for his execution of naturalistic detail and creating translucency in his panels. Memlinc is known for his financially minded cornucopia of work and for revolutionising the genre of portraiture. However, their differences are more pointed than there similarities. Both artists are mindful of the traditions of the Flemish school, such a the use of light to create a sense of the third dimension on the panel and the importance of landscape and background....   [tags: Jan van Eyck, Hans Memlinc, art, paintings, oil, ] 2341 words

The Drug War - The deep shadows cloaking the rear of the compound in semidarkness filled with imagined danger had finally begun shifting into an alternate state, darkness fading before light in a mathematically precise retreat as the sun began climbing over the top of the eastern perimeter wall. Waiting for something to happen, the slightest variation to the daily routine, was part of the punishment I had decided the previous day during the intake process.
