This essay is included my own understanding, plus some information that I gathered from a lot of researches and critics’ comments on this poem. I, myself interpret this poem through the first perspective I would explain about, and in two other perspectives my ideas hardly is included. "Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening" Complete Text Whose woods these are I think I know. His house is in the village, though; He will not see me stopping here To watch his woods fill up with snow. My little horse must think it queer To stop without a farmhouse near Between the woods and frozen lake The darkest evening of the year.
Onyekere 1 Chinelo Onyekere Julie Rea Eng 112 Date 08/14/2014 Hamlet 's statement “Frailty, thy name is woman” In Shakespeare 's, Hamlet is not happy with his mother 's remarriage to his uncle. He is referring to his mother when he makes the statement “ Let me not think on 't: Frailty, they name is woman / A little month or ere those shoes were old” (Act I.ii.146-147). Hamlet is in state of emotional distress due to his fathers ' death. In the statement,“Frailty, thy name is woman,” frail connotes delicacy, unreliability, and moral corruptibility,
The carriage in the poem can be taken literally, but some readers may also choose to interrupt it as a casket, which further outlines the poem’s relation to death. One of the great... ... middle of paper ... ...ltimate love affair with Death. In the final lines of this poem Dickinson states, “I first surmised the Horses' Heads, Were toward Eternity.” These final lines bring the poem full circle in the way they return the reader back to the first stanza, when Death shows up with his carriage. The horses drew the carriage that takes the speaker to the eternal life, she alluded to within the first lines. Through her poetry, Emily Dickinson takes her readers on a journey alongside her speaker.
The time aspect also can be indicated in this stanza. The narrator states that they see a wagon with a horse carrying it. A reader can infer the poem is taken place in the past, during the 1700’s, where people had to ride a horses and buggies because the car was not yet invented. The description the n goes on and tells how even the outside is cold and icy. This signifies that death is around
His mother, Gertrude, is apparently disturbed by this and requests of him: Good Hamlet, cast thy nighted colour off, And let thine eye look like a friend on Denmark. Do not for ever with thy vailed lids Seek for thy noble father in the dust: Thou know'st 'tis common; all that lives must die, Passing through nature to eternity. (1.2) The queen obviously considers her son’s dejection to result from his father’s demise. She joins in with the king in requesting Hamlet’s stay in Elsinore rather than returning to Wittenberg to study. Respectfully the son replies, “I shall in all my best obey you, madam.” So at the outset the audience notes a decidedly good relationship between Gertrude and those about her in the drama, even though Hamlet’s “suit of mourning has been a visible and public protest against the royal marriage, a protest in which he is completely alone, and in which he has hurt his mother” (Burton “Hamlet”).
For one thing they both are grieving over a loved one and it is this grief that propels them onto their path of challenging their uncles in their respective plays. Antigone just lost both her brothers, but she did not get closure with Polynieces and so she is still grieving over him, and that is part of the reason she defies her uncle, King Kreon, by burying him. Hamlet just lost his father and is still grieving when his mom moves on and marries King Claudius, so when Hamlet saw the ghost his still grieving heart pushed himself to challenge his uncle as well. Another way they are similar is that they have a one tract mind and they do not worry about the consequences, especially for their loved ones, of their actions. Hamlet was rude to everyone he cared about, especially Ophelia who killed herself partly because he was nasty to her, just because he was upset at the whole situation.
The fallacious choice Madame Ranevsky makes concerning her home and family leads them to destitution and separation. Ibsen shows Torvald as being an egotistical man who decides to mend his ways after his neglected wife leaves him while Chekhov shows Madame Ranevsky neglect as never effecting her at all. Ibsen, a modern realistic, represents Torvald as a condescending spouse who makes a social statement that husbands are portrayed as figures who protect their families, but in reality they are only there to serve themselves. Throughout the play Torvald constantly calls Nora “my little skylark” and “my little squirrel” and even “my little spendthrift” (Ibsen 2-4) Each one of the nicknames he gives her contains the word “little” in it; abasing her and making her inferior to him. He uses these frequently, especially when he wishes to make her happy.
Hamlet’s uncle, now step-father, even goes as far as saying Hamlet is acting like a stubborn girl for his prolonged misery, urging him to cease his weeping. Once his mother and uncle leave the stage, Hamlet mulls over the current situation. He starts off by stating that he longs to simply cease to exist, that his flesh would disintegrate back into the earth. He knows that the Lord condemns suicide, but wishes it was allowed for his sake. These first two lines point to Hamlet’s suicidal tendencies and his lack of self-esteem and self-worth.
What, wilt thou wash him from his grave with tears?" (Line 69). This sounds almost sarcastic and you can feel supportive for Juliet because she has lost a great deal. Lady Capulet continues and tells Juliet the news. "(Your father) hath sorted a sudden day of joyâ€¦ (You will) marry, my child, early next Thursday mornâ€¦" (Lines 109-112) To which Juliet replies: "He shall not make me there a joyful brideâ€¦ I will not marry yet, and when ... ... middle of paper ... ...e in the world, and Shakespeare emphasises this by leaving her alone in her room as she says the words "Myself have the power to die".
The loss of her beloved husband keeps Blanche’s mental state in the past, back when she was 16, when she only cared about her appearance. That is why at the age of 30 she avoids bright lights that reveal her wrinkles. Blanche does not want to remember the troubles of her past and therefore she attempts to remain at a time when life was simpler. This is reinforced by the light metaphor which illustrates how her life has darkened since Allan’s suicide and how the light of love will never shine as brightly for Blanche ever again. Although, throughout the play Blanche sparks an interest in Mitch, a friend of Stanley’s, who reveals in Scene three that he also lost a lover once, although his lover was taken by an illness, not suicide, and therefore he still searches for the possibility of love, when Blanche aims to find stability and security.
