The poet is very precise in using the term "fair" which ... ... middle of paper ... ...eems more astonishing. This sonnet mocks this woman by pretending to praise her, all the while proving that her fairness is contingent upon certain external manifestations. The fact that the beloved has a "gentle sprite" does not matter much because she is prideful. The subtle language of the sonnet hides the speaker's ridicule, just as her smile hides her pride. The author uses economic, oceanic, and nautical imagery to show how her fairness is merely revealed through temporal circumstances, and never makes mention that she is "fair" alone.
However, having a voice is only half of the battle, knowing when and how to use it is just as important. At the store opening in ... ... middle of paper ... ...Hurston added this scene to show the importance of culture. By not accepting her heritage, Mrs. Turner leads a miserable life because she is rejecting her identity. Janie is not influenced by the white standard of judgment. Unlike Mrs. Turner’s marriage, Janie’s is real; she truly admires her husband and his ability to “take most any lil thing and make summertime out of it when times is dull.” (173).
Her love is boundless, but not expressible through flattery. Though she makes little effort to elucidate her simple words, her bond is substantial, having been "Begot, bred and loved,(I,i,96)" by her father. Cordelia speaks in her explanation of performing her duties as she sees "right fit. (I,i,97)" Acting with such perfect purpose defines the princess as possibly the only absolutely righteous character in the play. But apart from merely confronting the possibility of losing her fortunes, she accepts her king's decision with silence.

Hester transform the meaning of A from adultery, alone, and agony to aid and angel with her virtue.
In this passage of George Eliot's Middlemarch, the narrator reveals a complex attitude toward one of the main characters, Dorothea Brooke. She is portrayed as a plain girl who cares less for worldly, material things, yet eventually turns into a character to be pitied because of her childlike view of marriage and conception of the world. The author's attitude in the beginning is one of reverence and respectability shown through his admiration for the way she dresses and bears herself. However, the tone develops into one of pity and criticism. This tone begins with a satirical approach to her philosophy which is too overbearing (for some people) and her ignorance towards the subject of marriage.
Despite the negative connotations of his mistress, Shakespeare speaks a true woman and true love. The sonnet is a "how-to" guide to love. This poem speaks of a love that is truer than denoting a woman's physical perfection or her "angelic voice." As those traits are all ones that will fade with time, Shakespeare exclaims his true love by revealing her personality traits that caused his love. Shakespeare suggests that the eyes of the woman he loves are not twinkling like the sun: "My mistress' eyes are nothing like the sun" (1).
This poem, like “Caged Bird” is also unstructured verse, and sporadic rhyme; this is very common of Maya Angelou 's work. This poem is extremely blunt in it 's working making it very easy to understand. “Phenomenal Woman” is all about being proud of who you are. What makes you special and noticeable is not the world 's standards of what you should look like but the confidence that you live by.

He extends his affection through the emphasis of his love and how it has endured and survived all hardships. He uses the truth of his poor and difficult situation as a tool to entice his love. In the "Passionate Shepherd", the speaker offers his lover a multitude of delights to persuade her emotions in his favor. At the very beginning of the poem he states his intention that "we will all the pleasures prove" (2) , creating a basis upon which all his promises are centere... ... middle of paper ... ...ing power of words and objects, and the increasing effect of truthfulness as the means to achieve true love. By contrasting the poems, the reader is convinced that truthfulness rather than spoken promises is the most effective means of achieving true love.
The voice of the poem claims that her hips are free, “they don’t like to be held back” (Clifton 7). She is a woman with drive like abolitionists, prohibitionists, suffragettes, and civil rights activists. There is a connection between Mae in “Like a Winding Sheet” and the speaker in “Homage to My Hips” through their confidence. Mae finds her confidence through her perfecting her appearance and the speaker of the poem is confident with her hips and her ability. Where Mae takes pride in keeping her overalls as tidy as possible, it ultimately ends up being her downfall, the tipping point that leads to her abuse.
