Here Keats uses words such as “pale”, “death”, “cold” and “horrid” to show how the knight has become the victim of this unpleasant experience. It then ends with the silent mood it started off with, as if the knight is going in an unending circle. This clever ending was designed to surprise the reader, and leave them with a sense of mystery. In When We Two Parted, the reader does not share the experience with the character as they do in La Belle Dame Sans Merci, and so doesn’t go through the emotions that the reader is feeling. Lord Byron wrote the poem as if looking back on the experience and the entire poem has been written so that the reader understands the characters feelings, and is sympathetic towards him.
Dickens also uses weather to create atmosphere and tension by making it seem bitter, and cruel. The weather is described as a “raw afte... ... middle of paper ... ...e tombstone obviously isn’t Pips he thinks he is going to die because of how the convict is acting physically and verbally. It feels personal to him and this is a fear-building phrase. Pip is portrayed as being venerable and young. Dickens wants you to see him as an innocent, to see him scared of what is going on as it is a new and shocking experience.
Some symbolic object/place for example a knife, a key must play a major part in the narrative. The story should also have lots of detail to get the feeling as if the reader is there to create different types of atmospheres, such as horror, terror, and excitement. They should also have a mysterious end, to make the reader go away thinking about it. Most people are interested in ghost stories because of the thrill and horror that is in it. Ghost story's challenges us to see how much of the paranormal we can take onboard and because it is a story they can always back away from it if it gets too unnerving.
Carol Ann Duffy's Stealing and War Photographer In the poems "Stealing" and "War Photographer", Duffy presents two very different characters, a thief and a war photographer. Although they are very different in many ways they are both people on the edge of society. Duffy offers a fascinating insight into their situation through exploring their thoughts, feelings and actions. In the first poem, "Stealing", Duffy allows the character to speak about his actions directly to the reader through a dramatic monologue, which has the effect of creating a sense of intimacy. The thief describes himself as a lonely and sad person who needs a friend in his life who is just as mean and sick as he is "I wanted him, a mate with a mind as cold as the slice of ice within my own brain".
The poems moved me and sadden me, and also opened my eyes to the horror of war. The poems I will be studying are ‘Spring Offensive’ and ‘Futility’; they differ from each other in a variety of ways but each communicates a feeling of compassion for those who died in 1918. While one will use perhaps horrific detail, another will use a milder and gentler method. In answer to the essay title, I will show which techniques Owen uses in each poem and how they move the reader. The first poem I will look at is ‘Spring Offensive’.
(xx) By making a conscious decision to leave the censored parts in the novel, Aldington allows the reader to paint pictures of the war with their own minds. This censorship forces the reader to think and imagine what is supposed to be in there. This also forces the reader to put themselves into the mindset of George as well as the narrator in order to fill in the blanks within the novel. This can sometimes be difficult, due to the narra... ... middle of paper ... ...me in England becomes more and more evident, with characters not understanding, knowing or really caring what is happening in France and the western front. The duel use of the theme of censorship makes it almost impossible for the audience to not notice the use of censorship and think about the importance of the theme to the novel, to George’s experience, the narrator, and the war.
With reference to two poems from the anthology, compare and contrast the respective portrayals of war. In this essay, two poems will be compared and contrasted on their views of war. The two poems to be analysed will be ‘Exposure’ by Wilfred Owen and ‘Base Details’ by Siegfried Sassoon. These two poems appear incredibly similar at first because the poets are both satirists who convey the war as being both horribly gruesome and stupid. They satirise generals and high command officers in particular for the hypocritical way the officers live.
Owen presents us a sarcastic view towards the idea of being honorable to sacrifice for their country and buttresses it with abundant of horrific images. It is a war sonnet that captures the feelings of survivors to those who lost their lives in war. The use of a sonnet creates a sense of intensity in his poem, briefness and portrays the nature of death on a battlefield. Moreover, Owen uses the rhyme scheme of “ababcdcdeffegg” to show the strong division between the lines. The choice of a sonnet allows Owen to convey his message effectively and remain emotional to keep the readers interested.
A catholic is indeed supposed to grow with his religion, and catechism is supposed to guide and help a catholic through these important stages of life. This important element of Catholicism is considered, alongside universal prayers, the basis for main tenets and beliefs that this group of Catholics may have. Next, we are going to talk about Roman Catholics’ deity. Roman Catholics believe in one and only God, which of course holds a very important place in the religion. God and Mary, Jesus Christ’s mother, also known as the “immaculate conception”, are prayed for by Roman Catholics and looked upon.
This type does not outright tell readers what they should picture or feel in their mind; rather it prompts them to think of some situation based on what they consider fear provoking. It still is considered imagery because the diction stimulates the senses; it simply relies on human thoughts to fill in the specifics. This makes for a very effective type of terror since at its root it demonstrates that humans always find ways to fear the unknown or what they do not understand. In an attempt to create a genuine piece of horror, and therefore unsettle or perhaps even scare the readers of his poem, Howard Phillips Lovecraft wrote “The Messenger” ... ... middle of paper ... ... feeling of anxiety, because readers would still find themselves wondering what was coming even after they finish reading the poem. Ultimately Lovecraft found a way to write imagery that terrifies readers through their fear of what is unknown, and that really solidifies “The Messenger” as a positively macabre poem.
