Poetry Comparison on Wordsworth's Lucy and Tennyson's Dark house, by which once more I stand Wordsworth's and Tennyson's poems are both about someone who was close to them and is now gone. However Tennyson uses the physical surroundings to portray his emotions as well as his own reactions whereas Wordsworth's poem is less specific and less obvious about his feelings, focusing his attention on the lost person. Tennyson's poem is more about himself, "I stand, my heart, Behold me, for I cannot sleep, I creep". Because he describes his own actions, the poem is very self absorbed and the reader doesn't get to know about the person that is now gone. On the other hand, Wordsworth does focus his attention on the lost person and in fact the whole poem is about her: only at the end does he refer back to himself, "The difference to me!"
The mood of sorrow reflected in the poem by the previous line could be a visual description of closed up shops or rundown buildings looking worse for wear in the nighttime, deserted, and empty; it must be bad as it is not just sad but described as saddest. No mention of persons around the city lane, which adds to the solitude and emptiness of the night. The brooding by the speaker gives way to melancholy, as he... ... middle of paper ... ... alone at night. Although not mentioned in poem, there is an overture of a burden or “sigh” by the speakers tone. The symbolism of the night conveys a sense of fear.
In “The Dead,” snow shows an expression of a dark image through faith. Gabriel has a feeling the snow falls around him, as it covers Ireland, the houses of the living and the graves of the dead. Snow falls onto the “universe” lightly. It falls, upon the descendents of all the living and the dead (225). The snow is used as a sign of cold, where people are trapped in their houses and homes.
The harsh climate of Starkfield has a sense of changing the people that encounter it, especially the Frome household. Starkfield is an interesting name for a town in New England. The narrator’s first words of the town of itself are, “But when winter shut down on Starkfield, and the village lay under a sheet of snow perpetually renewed from the pale skies...”(6). The city itself closes down due to the harsh climate and forces people inside. When people are stuck inside, that is when trouble starts brewing, or in the case of Ethan, lust.Th author’s choice of naming the fictional town is peculiar as she starts the towns name with the word “stark”.
Charles Dickens' Great Expectations In chapter eight Dickens begins with a detailed description of Satis House, we are given a vivid idea of what is in store for Pip right from the beginning. The language and phrases used emphasise the darkness and forbidding nature of the house. When Pip first enters the house he describes it as having, 'old bricks, and dismal, and had a great many iron bars to it. Some of the windows had been walled up; of those that remained, all the lower were rustily barred'. This adds to the atmosphere of darkness, because all the 'windows had been walled up'.
Another reason was the Treaty of Versailles. This was the treaty that was signed at the end of World War 1. This treaty outlined the rules that Germany must follow because of their defeat by Britain and France. Many Germans were angered by the treaty, for most of the rules in the treaty were unfair and Germany lost a great amount of wealth. However, One of the cruelest reasons for the war was Hitler's racist hate for Jews.
The Nazis targeted anyone who they thought were “unfit” for their society. This is an example of how discriminations and social justice issues can destroy a society or harm it forever. To this day, the percentage of Jews in the world and Germany in particular is much smaller than it was at one time and from what it should be today. In conclusion, the holocaust was an extremely terrible event in world history and in the time frame of the second world war. There was large amount of discrimination and anti-Semitism against the Jews and others who were different from the societal norm in Germany at the time.
He then saw the same figure again at the funeral. It represents the troubled and social anxiety that was rampant in Germany at a time of great horror. It was then labeled as a film that portrayed the artistic style of German Expressionism. The German Expressionist movement was a number of movements that began in Germany during the start of the 20th century. It mainly dealt with poetry, painting, art and cinema.
