Analysis Of Elizabeth Carey 's The Tragedie Of Mariam

- ... This last example illustrates Mariam’s lack of growth throughout the play. Mariam begins and ends the play filled with pride. Mariam lived in a traditionally non-Catholic setting but her pride as seen through Carey’s perspective was sinful. I believe this privilege in turn affected Mariam’s decision in choosing not to reconcile with Herod later on. Mariam chooses death over life with the tyrant Herod, and her demonstration of female agency leads to the death of others in her life. Mariam understands her virtue as related to chastity, and that her virtue is a private matter, “Oh what a shelter is mine innocence, / To shield me from the pangs of inward grief” (3.3.171-172) Mariam believes...   [tags: Ethics, Virtue, Life, Death]

Parallels Between the Monsters

- Mike Carey once summarized something very profound in one of his novels: “We make our own monsters, then fear them for what they show us about ourselves”. This idea, that perhaps one’s biggest fears are simply reflections of themselves, could be applicable to all aspects of life - more specifically, a certain gothic horror novel that was written years ago. The idea of being reflections of one’s own monsters perhaps was first put into words in Mary Shelley’s classic Frankenstein. Since the widely-adapted story was written in 1818, there have been constant debates and questions raised about who is protagonist and who is the antagonist in the story, a question Mary Shelley herself may have not...   [tags: Mike Carey, Mary Shelley, Frankenstein]

Her general nature to question was obvious, and just as everyone had fallen for him, Elizabeth overheard his comments to Mr. Bingley, declaring, “You are dancing with the only handsome girl in the room.” (Austen, 12).

- “The Fish,” written by Elizabeth Bishop in 1946, is perhaps most known for its incredible use of imagery, but this analysis does not merely focus on imagery. Instead, it is based on a quote by Mark Doty from his essay “A Tremendous Fish.” In it he says, “‘The Fish’” is a carefully rendered model of an engaged mind at work” (Doty).
