I thought their stories were totally opposite. Edgar Allan Poe was a tricky, dark, and guess what it is type of writer, comparing to Hawthorne whose style did with sin and mystery of it and moral lessons, they both were the same to me because both of them were allegorical in a sense that every story had a message for everybody to see and analyze. .
Although a century apart, Allen Ginsberg and Walt Whitman share similar cultural, political and moral values, which they express in their literary work. Whitman's writing is considered controversial for the 1800’s. He sets the stage for generations to come breaking way from the strict Victorian poetic tradition by writing in free verse. Ginsberg follows his footsteps, when composing “Howl" by writing in long prose like lines and subdividing the poem into several parts. Likewise, he uses numerous repetitions to achieve rhythmicity of his verse.
He wished to make certain that there could be absolutely no doubt that the nymph in his poem was responding to Marlowe’s shepherd. Another association between these two authors is their use of alliteration. Both exhibit the same alliteration; however, there is a difference in the sounds. Marlowe gives his poem more of ... ... middle of paper ... ...thy love. (21-24) Though Sir Walter Raleigh modeled his poem to mirror Christopher Marlowe’s in many ways such as: structure, images, and use of literary techniques; it is very clear that the characters show differing perspectives on what love means.
In the poem, Donne structures each stanza individually as a different personification of love. In the first stanza, Donne compares love to a plague when he says, “Yet not that love so soon decays…that I have had the plague…” (3/6) It is the latter line that Donne implements his use of imagery and conceit. Love is not often compared with “the plague” and this is a very strong interpretation. However while these two images seem different, they do interconnect through the pain and anguish that love can foster. This first comparison of Donne’s is very ef...
According to Poe's values, the only productive thinkers were both educated and imaginative, and he described poets as people who do not understand the mechanics behind the Universe's laws, but they can obtain these principles intuition (Osipova 25). Poe wrote his poetry according to his beliefs, and every poem he wrote was a reflection on his intuition's insights and his state o... ... middle of paper ... ...riences in form of divine beauty, I believe the main limitation was his experiences through intuition because translating intuition into intellect cannot be complete. However, his sentimentalism and the ability to display the same situations and points from completely opposite emotional contexts remains one of his best qualities as a poet. It is still difficult to say if Poe was influenced by his emotions completely, or if his emotions were out of control, or if he could observe all experiences objectively. My personal impression is that Poe was an objective observer who could view the same object, person, situation, or experience from several viewpoints and express his impressions and insights through poetry.
Although they were not Jewish, they respected the religion so much so that they risked their lives to go against other’s beliefs and protect the precious book. Religion has the power to not only shape the mind of characters, but to dramatically influence their actions. Secrets play a significant role and are necessary in order to control chaos and provide faith in a community. In both novels religion has a direct impact on the way people live as well as their ethical beliefs and actions. Religion has a great influence on people, providing faith and direction to each individual while controlling a co... ... middle of paper ... ...be taken to the extent of life or death due to the importance religion has in one’s life.
The reader may have mixed views about Jekyll, and the writer may have intended that. We may have sympathy for him because he was unable to control Hyde's behaviour as he came more and more obsessed with sticking to the high moral values expected. On the other hand we may feel that he got what he deserved for taking such a dangerous and unpredictable potion in the first place. Today people are not so wrapped up in making themselves have a particular image as nowadays we are accepted for who we are. Anyhow, one message Stevenson clearly wants to get across is that good and evil exist together in man, which is agreeable today.
“It is not that the ancient custom of human sacrifice makes the villagers behave cruelly, but that their thinly veiled cruelty keeps the custom alive.” (Coulthard 2). Towards the end of the story, Jackson says, “Although the villagers had forgotten the ritual and lost the original black box, they still remembered to use stones.” (Jackson 7). Readers can see in this passage that the villagers do not remember the purpose, but they remember the evil action which takes place in this lottery. This is because the villagers have evilness within them and rather act out in evilness. Readers can also see evilness when one of the main characters, Mrs. Delacroix, tells Tessie to be a good sport.

The Kite Runner shows how illiteracy disadvantages people, but even illiterate people could be educated. To Kill a Mockingbird shows the other side, where literacy may not always be helpful, and a lack of education is always deadly. The two books show that literacy can be wielded as a tool, or it can be turned against its user.
A noticeable flaw in the book is the last 12 chapters, which are irrelevant to the rest of the story because they only act as distractions and take away from the main idea. Even though this flaw causes confusion for the readers, Mark Twain is able to overcome that flaw with his style of making Huck relatable and practical. Mark Twain’s strength of portraying Huck as realistic is shown by the feelings and relationships he has. Huck was adopted by the two sisters, harsh Miss Watson and the gentler Widow Douglas, who tried to civilize him into a proper boy. Huck said “so when I couldn’t stand it no longer I lit out.
