Swallow The Air Essay

  • Shiloh: An Interpretation Of Death In Melville's Poem

    “Skimming slightly, wheeling still,/ the swallows fly low/ over the field in clouded days,” The birds (swallows, to be exact) are mentioned twice, once at the beginning and once at the end of the poem. They are the first and last powerful image we see. They are solemn and peaceful, yet are also reminders of the battle. The swallows represent the chaotic war, still lingering over the battleground.

Additionally, swallows fly erratically in order to catch insects from the air (Barn Swallow), and because the men are lying on the ground, the swallows can fly lower to eat bugs in the air without running into standing…

This unique style can also be seen in Two Swallows, created in 1981, which is ink and color on paper. Wu considered Two Swallows the most representative piece of his works. Even the…

    Respiration starts when oxygen enters either the passageways of the mouth or nose, where the air is moistened and warmed to avoid irritation to other parts of the system. In the nose and other air passages, there are hair-like structures covered with mucus called cilia that filter out debris and other foreign particles from the passages to provide clean air to continue respiration.
