The implied line puts an emphasis on the bone that is shaped like a knife. The color of the bones also matches the yellow tint of the clouds adding to the decaying and eerie mood of the artwork. On some of the bones there are also boiled beans, and the geometric figure appears to be resting on a box or shed. Stepping back, the viewer notices a balance in the painting from the geometric figure with having the head of the man on one side and a heavier part of a bone on the
Creative story The pool of dried crimson, clung as the fallen warrior prized his cheek from the gritty stone floor. The biting chill of the floor contrasted with the torridity of the room. The narrow beam of light that was cast upon the ground split the two sides of the darkened room. Even though jack squinted he could not identify the faint object positioned on the opposite side. His memory was blunted by piercing fuzz but his senses were still as sharp as the knife that he could not find.
The cover for “Façade” summarizes the visual style for The Sandman: Dream Country. In The Wolves in the Walls, the illustrations also portray a dark tone. The illustrations are drawings and abstract art mixed with real images. The opening cover page is a good example of this mixture between drawings and real images. This mixture confuses the audience’s perception of reality and imagination.
Texture is kept to a minimum in the specific work as it is a very two dimensional art work and as is common of the cubism style. He has made extremely good use of space as nearly the entire canvas is used, while maintaining the balance which is necessary to keep the composition aesthetically pleasing. Among the many symbolic images in the work are a bull, a horse a soldier with a broken sword and a woman looking out of a window with a very concerned look on her face. The broken sword in the soldiers hand, which can be seen at the bottom center of the composition was used to symbolize the broken spirits and the failure to resist on the part of the people. The woman is a symbol of concern for the fighting people by people who have succeeded in being able to see the whole picture.
Silent, smashed, charred and bitter are only a few examples of the many in 'What Were They Like'. The use of these negative adjectives shows the authors disapproving opinion of the events described in each poem. Chinua Achebe uses alliteration to9 show his feelings in phrases such as 'drizzle of one despondent' and 'Praise bounteous Providence'. The structure of 'Vultures' is interesting; the first section describes the love and evil shown by the vultures which is linked by another collection of short lines to a description of the Commandant and the way in which he shows both love and evil. The use of short, sharp lines in the poem makes it seem more powerful.
“Wind and cold and violent exercise had turned his face crimson” causing Billy to be designated by Vonnegut as a “filthy flamingo” (Vonnegut 42). By utilizing black humor, Vonnegut is able to convey not merely the tragedy, but also the absurdity, of an event. Vonnegut’s uniqueness of style includes not only the descriptions of events but their arrangement as well. The narrator tells his friend that “It is so short and jumbled and jangled Sam, because there is nothing intelligent to say about a massacre” (Vonnegut 24).

As the author distinguishes the similarities between the scarlet ibis and the broken vase, it highlights how the ibis is fragile, in its broken state, but it is still beautiful. However, the bird was still driven to a tragic death that it did not deserve, thus making readers feel pity and embedding a melancholic mood in the section. Therefore, as the author uses symbolism and similes, he establishes a melancholic mood during the death of the ibis in the

In conclusion, the three symbols of the blue-flies, the knitting, and the grindstone scene shows how savage one man is to another, the cold and inconsiderate feelings a man has for a suffering one, and how passive to life one man is to another. Dickens uses these symbols to portray the theme of man’s inhumanity to the reader and through the symbols embodies the harshness of the French Revolution. The French Revolution grounded men and women down to their most primitive state of mind, which took over all sense of feeling and humanity. Overall the inhumanity of the people in the novel is hard for the reader to believe or imagine, but Dickens showcases this defining element of the revolution through the symbols of the grindstone scene, the blue flies, and the knitting.
The title ‘Darkling Thrush’ suddenly illustrates to the reader that the poem is written in a dark style of writing. This is shown through Hardy’s choice of Diction and his style of writing. Words like ‘Haunted, Desolate Hard and Corpse’ allow the reader to build an image of an isolated landscape. His strong use of alliteration creates a dull image in the reader’s mind examples of this alliteration are ‘Dregs made Desolate’, ‘bine-Stems Scored the Sky’ and ‘Think There Trembled Through’. Hardy also uses similes in his style of writing to grasp the reader’s imagination and full attention.
In this essay, Frankenstein and Of Mice And Men will be critically compared and contrasted. Themes in the novels will be taken into account, as well as the use of language and the social and historical background to the novels. This will be closed by a conclusion where the main points will be brought up again. Isolation is one of the most frequent occurrences in the two novels. In Of Mice And Men, Lennie is disassociated from the others, not because he wants to be, but because of his low intellect he is considered 'different' by the men on the ranch, and society.
