The Tail On The Pony Stood By Discord

- From a distance it appeared a grey earth pony stood by Discord. Celestia and Luna prepared to confront Discord, but a creature they met earlier stood between them and his throne. It had showed itself to be above outside influence when Luna failed to make mental contact, and Discord 's corruption was shrugged off. Which made its aiding Discord of its own accord bewildering. Discord turned to meet his guests, "This is so much fun. How about a game of pin the tail on the pony?" He showed off Celestia 's tail....   [tags: Moon, Lunar phase, Debut albums, Luna Gotra]

The Use of Compression in My Life Had Stood a Loaded Gun by Emily Dickinson

- The Use of Compression in My Life Had Stood a Loaded Gun by Emily Dickinson Emily Dickinson is quoted as writing to Samuel Bowles that "the old words are numb—and there a'nt any new ones" (4). This absence of variety in Dickinson's life urged her to redefine the words that already existed by creating more or less of an emphasis on certain words. She achieved this effect by omitting key words and dislocating punctuation in a sentence and therefore giving new meaning to them. In her poem My Life had stood—a Loaded Gun--, her use of compression gives more force to each fragmented sentence, breaking it up into almost metaphoric terms of the components of the gun itself....   [tags: My Life Had Stood a Loaded Gun]

Emily Dickinson's My Life Had Stood a Loaded Gun

- ... In the fifth section, the gun comes to the peak of her power and sounds like she has autonomous agency, or as Vendler describes it, the gun takes a “grammatically independent action” (319). The speaker says that “I lay a Yellow Eye” as if she is doing something on her own. However, guns cannot kill people; they cannot pull their own trigger. In this gun/master metaphor, the wife/gun is an object entirely reliant on other people to give direction and purpose in her existence.
