The snake , according to Lawrence represents Nature that ties Man to the earth .However, he criticizes the way the Man in modern age deals with this nat... ... middle of paper ... ...nique of modern poetry. Moreover, he used this technique to make the reader share with him his feelings and draw a realistic picture of his experience. However, at some points, the writer uses different vocabulary to atrract the attention to turning points in the poem , for example words like "mused", "dignified" , "humility" , " proceed" to refer to the majesty of the snake. To sum up, it is clear that D. H. Lawrence is interested in the idea of contradictions in life. He believes that life is bounded with oppositions.
This is because no one ever knows that death is around the corner, it suddenly appears when one is least prepared. The snake brings out the same feeling of being unprepared from its sudden appearance. It becomes obvious that Dickinson is describing a snake as she goes on to say: "The grass divides as with a comb A spotted shaft is seen/ And then it closes at your feet/ And opens further on" As a snake passes through the grass, the grass divides as would if one was to brush their hair with a comb. If I were to see grass divide, followed suddenly by a spotted shaft, I would unexpectedly encounter a snake. The closing at the feet describes the stopping of the grass dividing once the snake comes closer to you.
It demonstrates the superiority to the snake because the narrator wants to befriend it, but the snake owns up to drinking at the water-trough. Each stanza has a new perspective on the situation the narrator is faced
The sound of a hiss in the word "grass" in the poem relates to the sound a snake makes. When a poet uses a consonant like "s" repeatedly, it is known as alliteration. Also, the reiteration of the s sound is seen throughout the poem. For example, "occasionally rides" (2) and "his notice sudden is" (4). In the first two stanzas readers are introduced to a pleasant snake.
Lawrence uses figurative language in order to present his ideas of societies expectations of a man. Lawrence changes the structure and style of “Snake” in order to highlight the struggles of the narrator. Specifically, when writing about the snake he uses repetitive and flowing words. He also uses traditional devices like alliteration, for example “and flickered his two-forked tongue from his lips.” The use of these technics gives the snake an almost human like feel that the reader can connect to. At the same time, Lawrence writes about the log used to hurt the snake in a different style creating such a contrast between the snake’s description and the log.
The snake represents all the twists and turns and being able to find one's inner-self is very difficult and twisted. The snake represents some of the animal imagery in the novel. Perhaps this is a sign that the jungle is something living and not just an ordinary jungle.

Lawrence wonders why “petty” mankind always tries to rob the dignity from all Godly creatures (Masterplots, 1930). Some religious themes could be drawn from the poem as well. There was a snake in the Garden of Eden. Lawrence is drawn by the snake, just as Eve was in the Bible. He is in complete awe of it, and can not decide to turn away from it or get a chance to understand it.
This isolation the spider experiences is compared to the speaker's soul in the second stanza which is endlessly attempting to catch hold of something meaningful in its life. The poet's usage of vi... ... middle of paper ... ... “A Noiseless Patient Spider” contains the theme of isolation as representative of the lonely emotions experienced by society. The confinement experienced by both the spider and the man creates a true desire for events to lead to their lives to “catch somewhere” of importance (Whitman 520). Isolation in both the poem and in detective fiction causes the audience to feel the emotions that the characters are feeling themselves as well as creates the ideal scene for the desire of and for the actual finding of a solution.

In Mary Oliver’s poem “The Black Snake,” the narrator contemplates the cycle of life with the unpredictability of death. Mary Oliver’s work is “known for its natural themes and a continual affirmation of nature as a place of mystery and spirituality that holds the power to teach humans how to value one’s life and one’s place” (Riley). In the poem, The Black Snake, the narrator witnesses a black snake hit by a truck and killed on a road one morning. Feeling sympathy for the snake, the narrator stops, and removes the dead snake from the road. Noting the snake’s beauty, the narrator carries it from the road to some nearby bushes.
The Lord of the Flies relates to Snake because of the effects on society that they both had to face in order to achieve something. In the lord of the Flies the boys of the island gather around and makes a vote to see whom the leader of the group, and it was Ralph. Like the snake the kids in the island had subtle actions and there was nothing wrong that was happening. However later on many different things had started to happen.
