This quote, “As whence the sun’gins ... shipwracking storms and direful thunders break.”(Act1,sc2), tells of one such storm during the battle in the beginning of the play. Storms, battles, that’ll make anyone a “gloomy Gus”. Lightning is a very gloomy sort of deal because with lightning there is rain and dark clouds and its scary.

14-16). Shakespeare uses a metaphor in this quote to compare the terrible weather to King Lear’s terrible daughters. King Lear has to deal with the disaster of this storm.

All over the world there are storms of varying lengths and strengths occurring, and many writers try to capture what it feels like to face them. Storms have destroyed towns and cities, caused death, and uprooted lives and homes. There have been many artistic ways of showing these storms—how they rose, came, and conquered. Writers have taken that and tried to portray those actions on paper, but not many have succeeded in showing the storm.

Throughout the poem Heaney is describing the elements that have to be faced during a storm, he describes the wind, the sea and the fear they produce. In contrast to Heaney, Whitman begins his poem with a prompt and vivid description of the storm and his dramatic account of a storm continues throughout the poem. Whitman’s portrayal of the storm is somewhat different to that of Heaney as it is more sophisticated and complex, “Steady the roar of the gale, with incessant undertone muttering”. The attitude of each poet towards the poem plays a prominent role in the style and rhythm of each poem.

In Porphyria’s Lover a poem written by Robert Browning the irony is sharply clear, the narrator has committed a very brutal act and justifies it as not only acceptable, but as noble. Throughout the poem the imagery and symbolism along with theme and setting suggest an overextended darkness. The narrator starts by describing the storm outside. Strangely, he describes the storm with adjectives that suggest that the weather knows what it's doing. After all the weather isn't aware of emotions.
For instance on a ‘dreary night of November’ (p38 Frankenstein) the creature is born and during ‘a heavy storm of rain’ where the wind ‘rose with great violence’ (p164 Frankenstein) Elizabeth is murdered. The connection between the two is that the reader can sense when something bad/traumatic is going to happen due to the weather alone. However doom and gloomy weather does not fill the entire novel.

The threatening roar of Alcee seduces Calixta to have a passionate moment with him. Lawrence I. Berkove stated “The mood for the entire story is set by the section’s description of the storm clouds rolling in with ‘sinister intention’” (225). Chopin uses “the clouds” to symbolize Alcee coming with an evil intention into Bobinot’s home, accompanied by his gloomy mind. Their affair is as strong as a big roar in the sky. Chopin uses the color white again and again in “The Storm” symbolizing the purity and innocence.
