  • Private Image Of Aeneas In The Handmaid By Virgil Vergil

    When they land, while Achates supplies dry fuel to their comrades, the first thing Aeneas does is “omnem prospectum late pelago petit” (seeks all the view far and wide on the sea) (passage B, lines 11-12). This shows how his first priority was to save all of the people he can. With no ship in sight, he then focuses on providing for his people and he goes out to kill deer. That shows that he is willing to care for them. He then comes back and delivers a speech that he knows that they want to hear. In the first passage, he addresses the gods and Diomedes. In this one, he addresses his “socii” (allies) (line 18). This shows how he views himself as an equal to them. He then mentions that they are not “ignari ... ante malorum” (not ignorant of evils before) (line 18). He wants to instill faith in them. Although he is “curis... ingentibus aeger” (sick with huge cares) (line 28), he “spem vultu simulat, premit altum corde dolorem” (he feigns hope with his face, he represses the deep sadness in his heart) (line 29). This is another case of him reporting “talia voce” (such things with his voice) (line 28). In this case, by mentioning that he is using his voice, it shows how he is using his words to give them faith that Troy can rise again in Latium. The verb “report” suggests that he believes in what he is saying and has thought about it. This separates the Aeneas in private who might panic…

  • The Theme Of Motherhood In Plath's Barren Woman

    found in Plath’s “Barren Woman.” As indicated by the title, this poem tells the story of a woman who can’t conceive. The narrator paints a picture of feeling, “empty” (line 1), and further makes an allusion to a life without grandeur like, “a museum without statues” (line 1).

  • The Unbiased In The Poem Grass By Carl Sandberg

    This vegetation doesn’t care that these soldiers had lives, friends, and families waiting for them back home. It doesn’t care how much these soldiers loved their country, or just felt like it was their patriotic duty to fight thee wars. The speaker sees these matters as trivial, and looks down at humans for caring for such concepts. This is shown the speakers use of the word “shovel” (Line 6.) The grass is in no position to demand this of mankind, yet it does so anyway. Furthermore, the speakers…
