The narrator speaks about the fish in terms of commercial, where every part of the fish can be sale for different purposes, but as the speaker look in the fish eyes, starts to compare the human life through the existence of the fish. What the speaker found beautiful about the fish is that as the speaker looks into the fish eyes and start looking in a different way to the creature, she starts to identify a living creature instead of a creature that will die imminently. The speaker starts seeing the beauty of the fish when she start to compare the fish to a soldier, when she sees through the eyes of the fish the victories over death that this creature has won, and I believe that the speaker compares her own battles and victories to the one of this creature in order to survive. I believe that the “ personality” of the fish is humble, brave and that this fish have been battling for a long time for his life, that he has been involved in some sort of violence many times in order to exist. I also feel that this fish is tired of fighting and that he is venerable to the speaker

In Haiti, building codes and regulations are all but nonexistent, so the minimum safety standard is not sufficient for people to be dwelling in the buildings. Since there is not a lot of wood available due to deforestation, concrete is the primary building material used for most of the structures, according to Alan Dooley, a Nashville architect (Fountain, 2010). Concrete is costly and the cement
I chose to respond to Elizabeth Bishop's "The Fish" because the poem seems so simple, yet there is much to gather from reading it. This is a narrative poem told in the first person about a woman who catches a fish on a rented boat and, after staring at him for a while, decides to throw him back. The narrator of this poem goes through a series of stages in which she is at first detached from the fish, then intrigued by him, and then finally sympathetic towards him.
Deforestation in Costa Rica is done for many reasons, but one of the biggest reasons is for economical gain. Costa Rica is a third world country so money for the government is tight. “Wood is very easy to extract and tends to have a very high value”(PersonalColby). And because most of Costa Rica is a dense rainforest, the use of the wood for money is being used. The deforestation of Costa Rica affects the rest of the world because with the removal of the forests also comes the destruction of the ways we regain oxygen after exhaling carbon dioxide. “The resource of wood is know as a renewable and nonrenewable resource” (fao). This is because the tree is a plant and another one can grow, but not at the speed in which humans right now use the wood. “It takes within 65 years for a small region of a rainforest to regenerate”(rainforestmaker).
The high levels of deforestation in Haiti has caused to the country to suffer from massive amount of soil erosion. This erosion is being washed into the sea and has highly degraded the reefs around the country. The degradation of the reefs has caused local fish populations to vacate the area. This erosion caused by deforestation has led to the failing of the farming, fishing, and forest related occupations. Global warming is having a large effect on rainfall patterns in many poorer countries in the world. This change in rainfall and access to clean water has the potential seriously threaten agriculture productivity in these countries. Brown believes that climate change will lead to increased violence because people will begin to lose
Bryant, when writing this poem, was only 17 years old, but that did not stop his amazing ability to shine through his work. Bryant’s similes are dynamic and powerful, not only because of the images that he uses, but also the simplicity in which he words them. Anyone can understand his flow from one image to another, making the figurative language commanding to the readers attention. Lines 77-81 demonstrates Bryant’s considerable range in depth, because he keeps his language simple and easy to understand. This allows more people to read and comprehend his poem, spending his purposes. “Thou go not, like the quarry-slave at night,/ scourged to his dungeon, but sustained and soothed/ by an unfaltering trust, approach thy grave,/ like one who wraps
“The fish” by Ellizabeth Bishop and “Out, Out…” by Robert Frost. In the poem “The Fish” and “Out, Out”, both narrators describe nature and his beauty like art. Ellizabeth Bishop begins with a clear description of what happened as the fish was caught. Later on Ellizabeth uses descriptive language to describe the fish. This helps the readers visually imagine what;s going i their head. In “Out, Out”, Frost describes a young boy doing a grown up job. Similarly to Bishop, Frost uses descriptive language to help the readers imagine.
Besides having the same name and subject, “The Fish” by Marianne Moore and “The Fish” by Elizabeth Bishop, don’t have much else in common. Moore’s poem, more or less, is about a fish swimming through the ocean after something terrible has happened to it (the ocean). Bishop’s poem is about a fish that has survived many encounters with death, a victor. Although they bear some minor similarities, the distinctions between Moore’s “The Fish” and Bishop’s “The Fish” are very prominent.
The nineteenth century was a time of economic, technologic, and population growth. These changes created problems in everyone’s daily lives. Two examples of things that affected the lives of many were disease and sanitation. Disease and sanitation led to high mortality rates in Nineteenth- Century England. This relates to North and South by Elizabeth Gaskell as it takes place during nineteenth century England and multiple characters died presumably due to disease.
Since poor people are in need of food, money and support they would lean in to destroying the plantation in the area to make room to create farms to support them and use the wood gathered to be able to sustain for themselves. In order to prevent this however the government would erect policies that would alleviate poverty and have policies such as creating more roads and dams that may at first may damage the environment but would in the end stop the people in poverty to think of other ways of surviving besides cutting down trees and making farms. In short term however many of these policies such as the construction of more roads and dams can affect the environment negatively. In order to build more the government would have to lead in to more deforestation to create space for the construction. These big construction plans can cause a big change in the ecological cycle and cause deforestation to continue even after these construction plans.
In "Surfacing," by Margaret Atwood, the unnamed protagonist acquires a radical perception of reality that is developed through an intense psychological journey on the island that served as her childhood home. Truth can be taken from the narrator's viewpoint, but the reader must explore the inner turmoil plaguing her in order to understand the basis of such beliefs. The narrator's perception of reality can be deemed reliable once all of these factors are understood; however, throughout the novel Atwood develops many unseen connections that are essential to such and understanding. Once the reader is able to understand the basis of the narrator's perception of reality, it is then possible to receive and accept Margaret Atwood's stance on the role of women and nature and, thus, discover the underlying meanings of the novel.
