  • Alfred Hitchcock Movie Analysis Essay

    He was very possessive and controlling with his leading females. They all were gorgeous blonde women. He especially treated Tippi Herden horrible throughout the film, The Birds. She claims he was a very abusive and controlling man. She wanted out of her contract, but he would say to her that he is going to ruin her career if she did. In an astonishing story she tells how he made her film in close quarters with real birds. “ In one horrific sequence, the filmmaker withholds from Hedren that real birds, not mechanical ones, will be used in a scene in which she 'll be attacked at close quarters. Then he subjects her to five days of shooting, take after take, leaving her injured and distraught” (Stephens 1). She still has scars from that horrific week today on her face. But of course, this is only a sided agreement and Alfred Hitchcock can 't defend himself…

  • Life Of The Birds Analysis

    During this week I saw an episode of The life of the Birds presented by David Attenborough in which he showed the way which some birds have for catching the attention of a possible couple. Amongst all of them, he showed the lyrebird which seems to have more than 300 different sounds for that, and amongst those sounds there was one that sounded like the alarm of a car and other that sounded like a pneumatic drill, those which are utilized to break streets, all that while deployed the feathers of…

  • Bird Symbolism In Lord Of The Flies

    The Birds represents more than the threat post by nature Daphne Du Maurier’s 1952 novelette The Birds depicts a small town in England during WWII where all the birds inexplicably started to attack people. While it perfectly captured nature’s cruel mechanism, The Birds actually represents more than just the threat post by nature. In fact, It also represents the notion of a threatening presence, larger than human beings with unrivalled power, an example of this that people are more familiar with…

  • Bird Symbolism In Charlotte Bronte's Jane Eyre

    In Jane Eyre, Charlotte Bronte employs birds a symbol in order to highlight important themes in her novel. While birds traditionally symbolize freedom and expression, Bronte uses them to show independence (or a lack of), freedom, and rifts in social class. Bronte also depicts some of her most prominent characters as birds such as Jane, Rochester, Adele, Bertha, and even Rochester’s guests. Through the use of bird symbolism Bronte highlights important topics in her novel, while giving the reader…

  • Analysis Of Alfred Hitchcock's Psycho

    Psycho is a classic among the entire horror movie genre with many memorable iconic scenes by the only Alfred Hitchcock in the history of Cinema. Tense, horrific and a superb lesson in filmmaking, it offers complex characters and revealing dialogue with a huge regard for details. Psycho also features glorious use of mise-en-scene, a fancy French term for all of the visual elements in the frame used to infer meaning. Hitchcock famously uses this concept in the parlor scene, where Marion and Norman…

  • Bird Imagery In Henrik Ibsen's A Doll House

    In the play “A Doll House”, Henrik Ibsen utilizes bird imagery to represent the characters in the play and the obstacles that hold them back in everyday life. Birds are amazing animals that have the ability to fly wherever they want, giving them absolute freedom. However, it’s still possible to place limitations on these creatures through the use of cages, and other forms of restriction. We as humans are similar to birds, as every individual has the potential to accomplish great things, however…

  • Lagan Weir Poem Analysis

    It is very clear that this poem was carefully constructed, it was meant to be read meticulously. The author of the poem has spent hours working with the “precision of black and white and its close score and countercut that becomes what happens here, between these squat characters and a thinning fiction keen to aspire” (Groarke, 56, 22-26). Yet even with this meticulous care, the only way to escape the confines of the poem is “by way of leave”, or by flight. This is also,…

  • Summary In Ralph Ellison's On Bird, Bird-Watching, And Jazz

    In “On Bird, Bird-Watching and Jazz,” by Ralph Ellison, it provides many examples of diction and syntax. For diction, I came across questions such as why the author uses the word virtuosi, and if the author provided any examples of metaphors. In the sentence, “Mimic thrushes, which include the catbird and brown thrasher, along with the mockingbird, are not only great virtuosi, they are the tricksters and con men of the bird world,” it provides the answer to both questions. Furthermore, the word…

  • Alfred Hitchcock The Birds Analysis

    In the first scene of Alfred Hitchcock’s The Birds, it could be taken as a flirtatious-romance film; however in the opening title sequence of the film, an ominous tone is set—a more accurate portrayal of the film. The first shot after the opening sequence shows the main protagonist, Melanie Daniels (Tippi Hedren), at a street corner with the frame of the camera shooting the busy street scene and the skies above. While the sky is clear, it is only after when Melanie crosses the street that birds…
