  • The Slave Mother Analysis

    The question, “And arn’t I a woman” is asked several times in Truth’s text. Moreover, each time the phrase is repeated it gains more inclusiveness in a universal fight for rights due to the context it is placed in. For instance when Truth states, “I could work as much and eat as much as a man--- when I could get it--- and bear the lash as well! And arn’t I a woman?”, she has juxtapositioned the repetitive phrase to point out the flawed argument that men and women cannot perform the same amount of work (47). Overall, Truth use of anaphora and juxtaposition logically leads common people to feel deserving of equality rather than creating a hierarchy of a dominant gender and…

  • Symbolism In Creative Writing

    In an effort to keep things succinct, we’ll focus on three: Option 1: Repetition Authors use repetition of ideas and objects to form symbolism.

  • Personification And Anaphora In Annie Dillard's

    Annie Dillard uses personification and an anaphora in section 4 to illustrate the significance of the total eclipse that awakens the mind and brings it back to reality. She conveys, “ people on all the hillsides, including, I think, myself, screamed when the black body of the moon detached from the sky and rolled off the sun.” (889) In this instance, the moon is the devil that covers God’s angelic light from glistening over the land and the people. The experience is life threatening because the…

  • I The Anaphora Poem Analysis

    energy tempts the performers to be too direct, but the beginning should be soft and searching yet with an underlying tension and very clear.

Atwood’s use of anaphora when repeating the phrase “opening and closing” generates an image of the valves of the heart pumping blood. It also carries a metaphorical meaning—that of opening one’s heart. This is supported by Atwood’s decision to leave the line without punctuation, ending with “opening.” The lack of a period leaves the…

  • No Firemen At Ground Zero By Michael Burke Summary

    Anaphora is a repetition of a word or phrase in the beginning of a sentence. They add emphasis and get straight to the point to show exactly what the author is talking about. The main examples of anaphoras in this article are two one sentence paragraphs; “And still they went in” and “And still they went up” (Burke).
