  • Romanticism In Stephen Crane's Maggie A Girl Of The Streets

    Stephen Crane characterized the characters of the novel through their actions and interactions with other characters during the story. Such as Jimmie, from the opening scene it was obvious he was violent and did not care much for rules and even his own safety. In the opening fight scene Stephen Crane wrote,“In the yells of the whirling mob of Devil’s Row children there were notes of joy like songs of triumphant savagery. The little boys seemed to leer gloatingly at the blood upon the other child’s face”(4). This quote shows that Jimmie was a violent fighter who was almost animal-like in his viciousness. Mary is also characterized in the same way and her negative traits, habits, and attitudes are shown throughout the book. When Maggie broke her plate Stephen Crane writes,“The fervent red of her face turned almost to purple. The little boy ran to the halls, shrieking like a monk in an earthquake”(10), to show Mary’s temper and alcohol abuse problem. Maggie and Pete are characterized in a slightly different way than Jimmie and Mary. Maggie and Pete are characterized throughout their relationship they have during the story. The quote,“Maggie came to him, the anxious look disappearing from her face and a smile wreathing her lips. “Oh, Pete—,” she began brightly. The bartender made a violent gesture of impatience. “Oh, my Gawd,” cried he, vehemently. “What deh hell do yeh wanna hang aroun’ here fer? Do yeh wanna git me inteh trouble?” he demanded with an air of injury. Astonishment…

  • Analysis Of The Grimms Brothers And The Little Snow White

    Further, I analyzed that sexism in the narrative, especially in the scene where she was with the dwarfs and the only way that she could be accommodated, she was to serve them, cook for them, clean, sweep and wash to keep the cottage tidy. This is portraying that the roles of women are clean while the dwarfs symbolizing men go out to do menial jobs. Additionally, the plot of The Little Snow-White is straightforward, and it narrates a story where the beauty of the Little Snow-White attracts envy…

  • D Angelo The Parlor Scene Analysis

    played. One of the obvious metaphors in this scene is the direct comparison between the pieces in the chess game and the players in the wire. The king is Avon and as D’Angelo says “The king stays the king”. No matter how much you do, no matter how many of the Kings enemies you kill or how much money you make for the organization you will never be king. The king does not do any work, he uses his pawns or soldiers and even the queen to do his dirty work. As you see in The Wire, Avon rarely…

  • Universal King Lear

    Throughout the study of king Lear and the queen, an increased knowledge and understanding of universal ideas about humanity have been gained. The three main ideas that Shakespeare and Frears present include, civil unrest, challenge to authority and the divine right of kings. Despite these texts being set in different times, universal ideas are extrapolated from the two texts.

  • Symbolism Of Fire In Dante's Inferno

    As far as we know, Hell itself is located deep underground, far below Earth. It is a sharp contrast to Heaven, which is traditionally said to be far above Earth, way up in the clouds. We can assume that Hell’s center goes even deeper into the ground, to the darkest, most secluded part of the Underworld. It is supposed to be the place where the very worst offenders are sent, so my description of it makes logical sense. It would also be fair to say that absolutely no light can get into Hell, for…
