  • Cage In A Hunger Artist
    1,148 words
    Symbolism of the cage in Kafka's A Hunger Artist Grant Kohler The cage is a symbol of many things throughout the story, most noticeably irony, but the cage is also a symbol of animalism in the artist and a symbol of security through change. Irony is a tool used by the author in the plot of the story, which yields a resolution that is the opposite, or at least very different than what was expected from the characters. The protagonist of the Kafka story is an ironic character because he feels the ...

Each of the three stories uses symbolism as a way to relate conflicts in the story to...
  • Importance Of Danc In Native
    520 words
    Native American literature is, in general, not to my liking. I find that it is very often too far-fetched for even my imagination. Most Native American pieces are more like children's fairy tales, than serious accounts of Indian history. The tale of the first totem pole was no exception to this generalization. I found the piece very slow and quite far-fetched. However, I enjoyed the piece from a fictional literature standpoint. "Wikiash and the First Totem Pole" is a story about a man named Wiki...

Having read and admired his historical works, particularly The Philosophy of the Enlightenment, I was curious about his own d...
  • Animals As Symbols To The Character's Death
    383 words
    Animals as Symbols In both of Ernest Hemingway's short stories, The Snows of Kilimanjaro and The Short Happy Life of Francis Macomber, he uses animals as symbols to the character's death. In each of the stories the animals are used differently to symbolize the death. In The Snows of Kilimanjaro the animal is a hyena. The hyena moves closer and closer to him as death approaches. It moved up closer to him and now he could not speak to it, and when it saw he could not speak it came a little closer,...
