Sun Imagery in Shakespeare's Richard III - Sun Imagery in Shakespeare's Richard III      Shakespeare's Richard III is a play pervasive in figurative language, one of the most notable being the symbolic image of the sun and the shadow it casts. In an examination of a short passage from the text, it will be argued that Richard is compared to a shadow in relation to the sun, which has traditionally been held as a symbol of the king. The passage is significant not only because it speaks volumes about the plots of Richard, but also because it is relevant in understanding the overall plot of the play, which in the first few acts is almost indistinguishable from the plot of the scheming Duke of Gloucester....   [tags: Richard II Richard III Essays]

No Ordinary Sun & Rain by Hone Tuwhare - Essay Question: Discuss the ways in which symbols and figurative language (imagery) are used to develop themes in at least two poems you have studied. *No Ordinary Sun & Rain, by Hone Tuwhare* Hone Tuwhare uses symbols and figurative language to develop themes in his poetry. Tuwhare’s strength is his ability to use effective imagery and symbols to develop persistent ideas that, in the poetry I studied this year, relate to the purity and beauty of natural things. Rain, an apostrophe to a “rain god”, and No Ordinary Sun, another apostrophe to a tree and Tuwhare’s protest against nuclear weapons, reflect ideas about nature that are persistent in many of Tuwhare’s works....   [tags: essays research papers] 745 words
