The Use of Similes in Auto Wreck

- The Use of Similes in  Auto Wreck           In his poem Auto Wreck (p. 1002), Karl Shapiro uses carefully constructed similes to cause the events he relates to become very vivid and also to create the mood for the poem. To describe the aftermath, especially in people's emotions, of an automobile accident, he uses almost exclusively medical or physiological imagery. This keeps the reader focused and allows the similes used to closely relate to the subject of the poem. Three main similes used are arterial blood, tourniquets and cancer....   [tags: Auto Wreck]

Theme Of Diving Into The Wreck

- In a beautifully descriptive poem titled “Diving into the Wreck”, author Adrienne Rich seems to be depicting a quest the narrator is on, to delve deep into the sea and explore a wreckage beneath the waves. The poem focuses more so on the preparation and process of the dive rather than of the search of the wreckage itself, which plays an interesting factor in the poem. But, as the narrator dives into the water, the reader is taken into a deeper journey along with them. Diving under the surface of the poem, and looking further into the meaning, there is a central theme of women who have been oppressed for hundreds of years struggling for their rights in a society that is mainly dominated by m...   [tags: Sociology, Oppression, Intersectionality, Poetry]

Selfish Decisions in “Wreck of the Hesperus”

- "She struck where the white and fleecy waves Looked soft as carded wool, But the cruel rocks, they gored her side Like the horns of an angry bull. Her rattling shrouds, all sheathed in ice, with the masts went by the board; Like a vessel of glass, She stove and sank, Ho. Ho. the breakers roared!"

This story describes a prideful man who made a selfish decision to not listen to a sailor's gesticulation and go out to sea during a ineluctable hurricane off Herman's Woe....   [tags: Literary Analysis]

The Movie Wreck It Ralph

- Labels Are For Binders, Not Humans Bad guys can be good and good guys can be bad as well. Stereotypes are not always true. Stereotypes are basically judging people without getting to know them, just because of their religion, colour etc. Never trust anyone because you don’t know who is being real and who is being fake with you. Humans judge too quickly, they do not even take the time to get to know someone. Usually media shows stereotypical kings as nice, a good leader and caring. In the movie Wreck-It Ralph, these theories are challenged when Wreck-It-Ralph (the bad guy) is actually a good guy who saves Vanellope von Schweetz from King Candy and reveals who, King Candy really is....   [tags: Antagonist, Villain, Supervillain]

Auto Wreck, by Karl Shapiro

The The Wreck of the Medusa

- “In the moonlight’s ghostly glow, I waken in a dream. Once more upon the raft I stand, Upon the raging sea. In my ears the moans and screams Of the dying ring, Somewhere in the darkness The siren softly sings…” “The architects of our doom Around their tables sit, And in their thrones of power, Condemn those they’ve cast adrift. Echoes down the city street, Their Harpies laughter rings. Waiting for the curtain call, Oblivious in the wings.” Excerpt from the lyrics, “The Wake of the Medusa”, By The Pogues “The Raft of the Medusa”, by Theodore Gericault, 1819, was inspired by the catastrophic wreck of the French frigate, The Medusa, on July 2, 1816, off the west coast of Africa, duri...   [tags: essays research papers]

Analysis Of Diving Into The Wreck By Arnold Rich

Feminism In Adrienne Rich's Diving Into The Wreck

- Adrienne Rich’s Diving into the Wreck confesses the oppressive conditions behind womanhood and Rich’s radical feminist protest to demand equal place in the “book of myths.” Being forced into the rot and damage in the darkness, Rich must confront a mission of conformity. With political and personal righteousness, Rich challenges the “wreck” that is the reality of patriarchal control. Her feminist point of view shows defiance towards the force men have held over woman throughout history. Rich’s work was not exclusive to the 1960’s and 1970’s, but such pieces were flooded with political and personal righteousness, and further empowered by feminism....   [tags: Woman, Femininity, Gender, Patriarchy, Feminism]
