He sputters out his sentences, pausing, and gasping. On a deeper level his brain function is also affected by the oxygen flow. This is clearly conveyed by his callous behavior and lack of thought to his future endeavors. His desire to avoid discipline is dimming as he realizes his time to receive punishment is approaching. Preceding his nerve-rattling last conversation with Porfiry, Raskolnikov seems to be lost and disoriented.
He is also filled with resentment and anger as is made evident by his "bitter-bitter" heart. This whole scenario represents the dependence of man on the love of another and his state of total denial and sadness when it is taken from him. The only beam of hope that I could find in this poem is when the man says that he likes his heart despite its bitterness.
Next, Byron emphasizes the way he feels even now that time has past without the women he loves. He expresses the feeling of mourning and he is still in the grieving stage. The dew resembles what he is feeling now, suggesting his own emotional detachment at this point.Byron states "The dew of the morning Sank chill on my brow - It felt like the warning, Of what I feel now"(). He turns his attention to his beloved’s apparent infidelity “Thy vows are all broken And light is thy fame: I hear thy name spoken, And share in its shame" Byron explains that the promises they once made have now been broken since she has left. However, every time he hears somene speaking of her he suddenly feels ashamed of the relationship he had with
We move from confusion, then to hurt and pain, all the while seeking clarity and prayerfully closure. But before closure Lewis cleverly paints the picture of not only dealing with his own pain but the pain that others might assume he is dealing with. Even more so, pain that others who loved H are going through. Lewis parallels this to awkwardness to embarrassment, “It isn’t only the boys either. An odd by-product of my loss is that I’m aware of being an embarrassment to everyone I meet”.
Comparing the Way in Which the Poets of Funeral Blues and First Love Portray Their Experiences of Love Both poets emphasise and depict the agony and discomfort of love. Auden is utterly distraught due to the loss of his romantic other and because of the immense pain he is suffering he wants everyone else to tolerate the same anguish. Phrases such as 'Stop the clocks' and 'Cut off the telephone' suggest the narrator is demanding the whole world to stop and listen to him. He wants the world to share his grief. He uses strong negative imperative verbs such as, 'Stop' and 'Cut off' to portray his vituperate anger.
Even though there are differences in the characters I will be exploring how confusion is caused due to the instability of their emotions such as grief, jealousy, anger and madness. ‘Education for Leisure’ is a poem about an individual who feels that they have been neglected by the world for too long and decides that it is now time for them to make a stand and become known by the world. They are a psychotic character who feels undervalued as a result of their treatment from others. They feel it is time to ‘play God’, It shocks the reader at the end as they are directly spoken to by the person in this poem as they say, ‘I touch your arm,’ this frightens the reader because it is the first time that they are addressed directly by the narrator. It seems that this person has a condition of some kind which gives him the compulsive urge to channel his anger through violence.
Prufrock laments his physical and intellectual inertia, the lost opportunities in his life and lack of spiritual progress, and he is haunted by reminders of unattained carnal love. Through the use of stream of consciousness, visceral imagery, and unconventional rhyming pattern, Eliot imbues readers with longing and frustration, and an awareness of mortality deploying lines that become deceptive musings in “Prufrock”.
He is almost sleeping while doing this. This creates a very powerful visual image. It epitomizes how the people left to grieve act. Many people stricken by death want to be left alone and bottle themselves up. The first few lines of the poem illustrate how deeply in sorrow the man is.
Though, he did mean what he said about going away, which shows how discontent he is with his life. Another symptom is crying, which Holden does multiple times in seemingly peculiar situations for unknown reasons. “I was sort of crying. I don 't know why” (52). Holden has trouble managing his thoughts and feelings, and although he feels happy to be leaving Pency he begins to cry.
There are many themes, such as depression and death that are found in this poem. In the line 1 it reads, “My heart aches, and a drowsy numbness pain” (Keats). This quote shows Keats’ depression and how he is numb to the pain now. This shows that since he has endured so much pain in his past he is numb to the hurt and heartbreak, he considers this pain an everyday thing. Critic, Bill Delaney feels that he is very depressed as well.
