    One of the allegorical details that can be interpreted is the literal and figurative implication of Faith. As Goodman Brown commences his journey, his longing desire to meet the Devil hints at a slight shift in his belief. Abandoning his wife, Brown shows a sign of negligence. The Devil questions Brown for his delay to which he responds, “Faith kept me back awhile” (Hawthorne 2). The “faith” here symbolizes both Goodman Brown’s wife, Faith, as well as his religious belief. In a literal sense,…

    As still being a younger person, it is likely that the narrator has never experienced death before. The lack of experience could serve as an explanation for the vagueness of the poem. In the final stanzas the narrator delivers the strongest imagery in the entire piece to the reader. The narrator describes his brother as being “paler now and wearing a poppy bruise on his left temple.” Those descriptions serve to shock…

    In this decision, the Court’s granted a weight inconsistent with previous cases to the potential for coercion of students created by what the Court concluded was the essentially involuntary nature of the event. A comparable component is not present in the facts of this case. The voluntary nature of group’s meeting could lead the State to rely upon the decision of the Court in Sante Fe (2000), as the event at issue in that case, a high school football game, would be like the petitioner’s…

    that man is primarily evil” (432). Fogle’s perspective on the story is valuable to readers because it helps reinforce aspects of the reader's interpretation by providing a second-hand examination of them. Fogle helps confirm that there is indeed a vagueness to Hawthorne’s writing, but instead of being a flaw, the technique proves itself to be an enhancement to the story.

    In the flash fiction story of “Flowers” by Alice Walker, every sentence contains a specific meaning. Throughout the story, she uses language in order to establish her central theme - or what she desired the reader to learn.

The literal allegory is easily recognized in the story. Walker includes the word…

I disagree with Niemitz claim that a portion of the middle ages was fabricated.
