    The line spanned street after street, it seemed. I waited for what felt like hours, watching the line ahead dwindle as the Barnes and Nobles workers funnelled us into the store, prodding the line up three flights until we reached that lone table, stacked high with bright orange books whose spines and covers read, in black matte letters, THE GLIMMER by RICHARD DUKE.

This can be inferred in line 7 when the speaker states, “in the heads of soldiers.” Throughout the poem, the speaker highlights certain objects such as: red guns, leather saddles, and hot muzzles because these little, but crucial, details help add a more depressing mood to the poem. Although the narrator does use depressing factors, it should be noted that the poem’s ghostly…

    This is evident in Beowulf’s second battle, the battle with Grendel’s mother. Grendel’s mother is a symbol for all things that affect a person through their life. These obstacles could range from work related problems to personal issues. Beowulf started battle two with his experience in swimming due to his match with Breka a long time ago.

The intensity of the battle, the intimacy, the choice to stay in narrow focus on Jon Snow in the midst of chaos during an extended long-shot, all worked together to create an experience that had me not only on the edge of my seat, but holding my breath as I watched. But…
