  • Those Winter Sundays By Langston Hughes Analysis

    One of the most challenging jobs in the world is raising a child. There is nothing comparable to the constant worry, love, and nurture that a parent provides for their child. It is a nonstop job that follows one to the grave. It is a job that holds many joys, but holds many adversities as well. Robert Hayden’s “Those Winter Sundays” and Langston Hughes “Mother to Son” are two different poems that share the same theme—Parents continuously face hardships, struggles, and obstacles when raising a child. What makes these two poems extraordinary in conveying this theme is that they are told from two different points of view. “Those Winter Sundays” is told from a son’s perspective of how his father treated him as a young boy. The speaker, as a young boy, thinks that his father is a cold and unloving person. When he becomes an adult, he realizes all the sacrifices and hard work that his father does to show his love. His father wakes up early to warm the house for his family, has rough, cracked hands from a hard labored job, and “No one ever thanked him” (Hayden 1,3,5). The speaker takes these actions for granted as a young child, but grows to appreciate them and feel guilty for not acknowledging his father’s love sooner. “Mother to Son” is told from a mother’s point of view. She is explaining to her son that her life “ain’t been no crystal stair” (Hughes 2). The mother is saying that her life has not always been easy. There has been pain, complications, and hitches all along the way.…

  • Pathetic Fallacy In William Shakespeare's Romeo And Juliet

    Juxtaposition is placing two contrasting ideas next to each other. In act 2, scene 6, Romeo and Juliet get married. In the next scene, a fight breaks out. Friar Lawrence says, “So smile the heavens upon this holy act/that after-hours with sorrow chide us not.” In the next scene, Tybalt states, “Boy, this shall not excuse the injuries/that thou hast done me. Therefore turn and draw.” By following the wedding scene with a scene filled with conflict, Shakespeare created drama and excitement. When…

  • Jealous Husband Returns In Form Of Parrot Summary

    Love is first literal then converted into a metaphor through marriage. Love begins as literally loving someone when sharing experiences because of love that is contained. Profound love then changes to a metaphor; it asks why experiences with someone they love are meant to happen, the purpose to marry someone by finding deeper love to know how attached a person’s love is. Robert Olen Butler wanted us to understand when we interpret ideas as a metaphor, we understand why things are meant to happen…

  • Recount In Political History

    The race for the presidency in the year 2000 was very controversial. Now after watching the movie Recount it is obvious that George W. Bush illegitimately won the election.

  • The Convergence Of The Twain Analysis

    Thomas Hardy’s “The Convergence of the Twain” is a cautionary tale against Man’s attempt to transgress his myopia. Mirroring the Greek traditions of architecture and tragedy, Hardy impassively elevates the catastrophic accident to an cosmic ‘intelligent design’ - an orchestrated ‘convergence of the twain.’ Hardy presents this tragedy of human “vanity” through a detached, almost reportorial tone, developed from an omniscient point of view. Particularly, he uses sophisticated diction and wordplay…
