    A Tale For Winter It was a cold and miserable January, filled with rainstorms, harsh frosts and a gusty wind that made the trees creak, as their roots clung to the soil for support. The grass was clothed in a cloak of silver and the trees were tipped in white. Most of the animals of the forest were still in hibernation from the autumn months, safely sleeping in their grassy beds and earthly homes. All except one, a young bat named Vladimir, who had not been able to sleep for the howling of

    Shakespeare’s play, A Winter’s Tale, has many magical and mystical elements throughout. A Winter’s Tale is true to form as one of Shakespeare’s romances. There are tragic scenes in the beginning with a romantic and joyful twist at the end.

    Season In The Bluest Eye

    • 561 Words
    • 2 Pages

    The organization of The Bluest Eye by season rather than the conventional chapter by chapter narrative suggests a cyclic occurrence, one of repetitive angst and in many ways irony. Pecola Breedlove’s life is a reflection of these seasons, the latter often being oxymoronic in relation to the actual chain of events. Each season connoted different aspects of Pecola's life and was often times the antithesis of her mere existence. The novel starts off with autumn, a season of maturity and harvest. It

Winter makes me feel claustrophobic with the scarves, and hats. I rather be loose and free. Lighter jackets, or maybe only a loose soft sweater, or long sleeved shirt to keep out the light chilled air in Fall. Even spring makes you feel miserable with allergies, the sudden heat after winter. Fall is the slow transfer back into winter.

    old days. These days were full of young innocence, and no worries. Wordsworth describes these childhood days by saying that "A single Field which I have looked upon, / Both of them speak of something that is gone: The Pansy at my feet Doth the same tale repeat: Whither is fled the visionary gleam? Where is it now, the glory and the dream?"(190) Another example of how Wordsworth uses nature as a way of dwelling on his past childhood experiences is when he writes "O joy! That in our embers / Is something

    in November, and Ursula Le Guin's The Left Hand of Darkness. All three novelists set current protagonist movement against a backdrop of immobility. Both Wharton and Le Guin set their protagonists' change against the seeming constancy of summer and winter, while Johnson sets a critical spring-to-fall family transition against her protagonist's assertion of year-to-year sameness. Thus, each novelist, while depicting the movement necessary to build a story arc, sets this movement within a larger context

    The Curse of the Orange Tree and the Artist "In a Green Night" by Derek Walcott is a poem about the conflicting feelings of life. "In a Green Night" focuses on the ever-present threat of death, and how our lives revolve around the inevitability of death.
