Jonathan Swift is a Misanthrope In the book Gulliver’s Travels the author, Jonathan Swift portrays humans as ignorant creatures and wild beasts; Jonathan Swift shows how he is a misanthrope throughout this novel. When Gulliver is in Lilliput Swift represents the majority of human beings as Lilliputians. When in the Country of the Houyhnhnms he represents humans as stupid wild beasts, yahoos. The author shows his hatred of humans through Gulliver and his adventures. Throughout the book we are represented as different things, but in the end they all have some fault in which Swift expresses in the book. People are not kind and intelligent; they are only shown as savage, ignorant and stupid creatures in this novel. In Lilliput Swift makes a metaphor showing how Gulliver is the “bigger” person and will not hurt people for his own gain. Gulliver is bigger at heart and in reality while the Lilliputians are “small” people who would hurt other for their own gain. The Lilliputians are mini people no more than 6 inches tall, and because their small their hearts are small too. The emperor wants to completely annihilate the Blefuscu fleet, but Gulliver refuses and “would never be an instrument of bringing free and brave people into slavery” (51). The Lilliputians represent how humans are selfish creatures who will completely destroy and ruin other peoples’ lives for what they want. In Lilliput they choose politicians and leaders through silly obstacles and challenges. They are just requires to have great dexterity and strength, Leaders are elected through how they entertain the emperor. Swift show how human beings elect leaders through idiotic and absurd trials and tests. We do not elect leaders who are qualified and prepared to be leaders, but we select them through silly trials. To get reelected people do not try to do a good job while they are leader, but they increase their strength and dexterity. The leaders would even allow for their own citizens to be eaten; the emperor gives Gulliver Lilliputians and allows him to eat them. The Lilliputians are creatures who try to be the strongest, and this shows how humans want to always win and be on top; it’s human nature. They do not care who is hurt as long as they succeed and are safe. When Gulliver was in the Houyhnhnms humans were represented…
in The Monkeys Paw its very relaxed with the rain in the setting, with the father and son playing chess by the fire. Throughout this story it gets darker unlike Tell Tale Heart, where the story seems to be on fire in a sense of insanity.
In both stories we are left with a feeling of horror. They both state opposite ideas but further analysis provides proof both of them being similar. Proving both similarities and differences by using commentary, quotes and details. Both stories The Monkeys Paw and…
Dreams by Langston Hughes is a great poem. It is very short but it also has meaning to it. It amazes me how this man can write a poem in less than 9 lines and still have the ferociousness as the greatest writers did back when they were alive. Dreams has different poetic devices used throughout the poem such as, imagery and metaphors. This is the poem.
Hold fast to dreams
For if dreams die
Life is a broken-winged bird
That cannot fly.
Hold fast to dreams
For when dreams go
Life is a barren…
in the garden, two little monkeys survey this sorry landscape with bored, expressionless, yet disturbingly human eyes.
The balmy, verdant jungles of their native South America are a very long way away.
This is their life, shut outside a house in the West Midlands 24 hours a day. There’s nothing for these marmosets — typically sociable, playful, curious and intelligent animals — to do, not even a toy to play with.
Inside the house in Walsall, the monkey couple’s four-month-old son…
Group Animal: Monkey
Monkeys are fascinating animals in many ways; one way being how they communicate with other monkeys and animals! All monkeys can make at least twenty-five sounds to converse with. For example, a loud hoot is used as an alarm. A whimper is used as a way of showing fear. Another example is a roar which is used for anger while a purr is used for happiness. Also, a rumble is used for pleasure. Tamarian Monkeys whistle while Howler Monkeys bellow. Furthermore…
Monkey See Monkey Do
Have you ever seen someone who sees something in the television and mimics it after seeing it. Would seeing a show that promotes friendly atmospheres be worst for a young teenager, or is watching a show about violence, partying, alcohol, and sex be better for the young audience. Jersey Shore, a MTV Reality show, is about a household of people who party and drink in every episode. They drink irresponsibly, they are not afraid to pick a fight, and treat every women as if the…
The article was about a small boy that was found in a jungle. That statement wasn't a big deal
after it states that the boy has the behaviour of a monkey such as him jumping from place to
place like a monkey and also his hands were clenched. He even eats grass and anything he finds
and this boy stared a debate whether he is a monkey or a human being.
Referring from the seven traits of human beings put forth by the Catechism of the Catholic
Church I have choosed two traits…
Analysis of “Alone”
Edgar Allan Poe's poem “Alone” is a stunning deception of the inward depression its author felt, it was written in 1829; making it one of the first of Poe's poems. Themes of loneliness and isolation come through the poem as Poe is successful in conveying a sense of heaviness in mood and attitude. The prosody of the poem helps effectively express the darkness within Poe, while maintaining a dark and heavy rhythm. The symbolism he included…
