Beach Burial by Kenneth Slessor

The mood expressed by Slessor has alluded to the memory of the men who have been buried unknowingly who they are and what they have done.

The Bustle in a House

...Dickinson also has heavy use of symbolism to show that man must accept deaths as they come and not mourn over the loss. The only way for humans to overcome the loss is to put aside the emotions and the love that they once had Until Eternity. Eternity is a symbol for the next world, since death is not the end but the beginning of a second life. She uses a metaphor to show that emotions and love that one previously had for the individual must be [Swept] up and [put] away because life goes on; the ...

Cultural Influences On Emotional Expression and Perception

...Summing up, this paper talked about the different expressions the people in different cultures gave. Everyone is brought up differently and taught differently. Therefore, we express our emotion differently because of the surroundings we grew up in, and the people that influenced us. Although people in certain parts of the world are different in terms of the background, tradition, and norm and so on, all of us are crossing that barrier on having friends by effective communication. We shouldn't p...

Express Yourself Through Music

...Your feelings and expressions are closely associated with music. I personally don't know of anything else (outside of first hand interaction with other human beings) that can affect me the way music does. You can either express the way you feel and get out of that trap, or you can just drown in your problems by playing the sorry blues. All my life I've been involved with music and I also realize that music is a difficult, but beautiful thing that people should take more time to appreciate. It is...

The Metamorphosis by Franz Kafka

...Gregor's incapacity to recognize true kindness but ability to perceive anger develops the idea of hopelessness because it suggests that he can never be integrated into human society. Humanity is founded upon emotions, and benevolence and fury are the extremes of human emotions. Gregor's inability to understand one of these keystones, kindness, indicates that he is lost from humanity, creating the hopelessness that he can never be included in society. His ability to understand the other keystone,...

Speech: Emotion and True Happiness

...But human beings are not just physical beings, we are mental and spiritual beings. While we wallow in the quicksand of materialistic ambitions, we fail to realize that the only way to achieve happiness is to fell it from within us. True happiness, according to Mahatma Gandhi brings more richness than all the money in the world. Finally, for all my opponents who still believe that money buys happiness, this final information should prove them wrong. Research states that an average American billio...

Critical Analysis of Loneliness

...Mansfield exceptional usage of elements throughout her short story 'Miss Brill', allows her audience to pull apart the story piece by piece, and analyze the concept of the effects of an altered-reality contributed from loneliness. Miss Brill's imagination over-shadowed her cruel reality, making readers think, if she dedicated herself to making considerable connections with others, as much as she dedicated her time to her imagination, her story would have ended much differently. One can only imag...

"The Red Room" by H.G. Wells

...Another way in which the author creates tension and suspense is by withholding information. Immediately, we can see that the story begins mid-scene which creates suspense as it ambiguous and leaves the reader wanting to find out more; "I can assure you,". We can also see this in the ending of the story. The ending of this story is an anticlimax as it does not provide all of the answers that are put in the readers mind throughout the story, which leaves the ending of the story open to speculation...

...Hardy uses several imagery techniques throughout the poem Green blades from her mound, which allows readers to visualize the grass on her grave, Clouds spout upon her which helps readers envisage the image of rain spouting on the grave giving a melancholy effect.

Journal on "The Story of an Hour" by Kate Chopin

..."The turning point is when Louise saw her husband opening the door coming back alive. Chopin's satirical plot leaves an open understanding of Mrs. Mallard's death.

Refer to Poem 327 "Before I got my eye put out"

...The isolation and repetition of 'mine' in the third and fourth stanzas illustrates the tension and selfish nature of the narrator. The poem climaxes in terms of intensity in the fourth stanza and Dickinson then brings the intensity down to safer levels, which is highlighted by her use of the word 'safer' in the first line of the final stanza. The repetition of 'other Creatures' provides balance to the poem. The symmetry is strengthened as a result of the similar emotional tones in the first and ...

Victor Frankenstein Is To Blame Mary Shelly Frankenstein

...In conclusion, it has been proven that although it was the creature that committed the violent acts, killing innocent people, the ultimate responsibility for these deaths lies with Victor Frankenstein.

Understanding the Movie Black Orpheus

...On the other hand, the fire and dark smoke from the top of the hill where Mira and other Black women are coming from portrays the harsh feeling of a woman who has been deceived and the thematic angry emotion of the film.

Destroying Avalon


Mark Rydell's "On Golden Pond"

...To go back to the quote from before "Women's relationship's with their fathers are important to them all their life…" This quote ties my paper together perfectly. As much as it is a quote more to Chelsea than Norman it strongly shows how a daughter can be so affected without a father's love and support. This movie is not only based off of Norman's aging and one of his last summer's but it is about the growth of a daughter and father's nonexistent relationship. Throughout the movie Norman shows...

Of Mice And Men Pee On Crooks

...A: Use of hyperbole, 'nuts' stresses Crooks abhorrence of his seclusion and that being socially excluded has made him change negatively, by being 'sick'. The adverbial quantifier intensifier points out that his need for social interaction is literally killing him. Through the use of the words, 'nuts…lonely…sick', creates a semantic field of dehumanisation, as Crooks has no typical lifestyle or feelings in association to the other workers in the ranch. A lexical field of knowledge is made due...

Physical and Emotional Burdens

...Even though he no longer physically carries these things, he still emotionally carries them throughout the book because he can never get them out of his mind.

Personal Professional Development

...An example of my continual self-development in achieving organisational objectives is to continually ensure I am current and up to date with my knowledge of funding eligibility, which is governed by the Skills funding Agency (SFA).

This can have a detrimental effect on the company which could lead to loss of revenue or loss of contracts which in ...

A day of sorrow is longer than a month of joy

...It is said that unhappiness is a completely rational response to certain losses so when we lose our self- confidence, or our health, our family ties, our friends or even when we do things which are unpleasant for us, we end up by feeling bad and time seems to freeze. But, when we feel fulfilled or when we do things that we like, we feel good and time seems to fly. The problem is that most of us tend to stay with what we know rather than choose any form of change. As a result, we continue to be u...

Evaluation Essay of “In Too Deep”

Language and communication difficulties

...In adulthood in particular, sustaining relationships can be a very stressful situation. A lack of understanding between two people can lead to a distance in thought processes. The worry and anxiety levels of adults with SLCN can often be extremely high, and instead of “failing,” they may be reluctant to even try. Adults can often argue, which again would be a difficult task to overcome for someone with language and communication barriers. Many adults may not realise, or fully understand, wha...

Dream journal activity

...I will continue to seek this out when I have the opportunity. I noticed that I was better able to articulate my problems on day three because my body was more rested than I could on the first day.

When they do creep up, I need to address them other than escaping from them. Short term escapes only compound my emotional concerns and ultimately m...

The Lesson: Sylvia's Realization

...This is an interesting analogy as Bambara is indicating that the aura of the Catholic Church is akin to that one finds in a department store; this indicates that the nature of consumer culture has begun to occupy the place that religion previously occupied within social existence. While in great part Sylvia functions as a narrator in the later section it’s clear that the general thrust of her mental and emotional change is encapsulated in the reactions of her friends who have attempted to come...

The Lonely, Good Company of Books

...Yes, that is all true but those basics must be mastered and not every student has the ability to comprehend all of that. Students can repeat words on a page all day long but if they don’t have the necessary comprehension skills they will not be able to make predictions about what will happen next, identify the plot, recognize the important characters, clarify confusing parts, decode the meaning/ lesson of the overall text, and most importantly connect what they are reading to their own experie...
