Perhaps Tennyson and Browning choose to write about solitude, which every reader must confront to some extent, to compel their readers to examine the relative morality of their own actions.Despite their mutual focus upon solitude, the poets use personification to highlight the different personalities of their characters and to foreshadow their future actions.Thus, solitude in these poems forms a background that places the characters’ actions in sharp focus.While at first the connection between solitude and individual rights might appear elusive, the contrasting behaviors of Mariana and the narrator serve to strengthen the link.Similarly to Tennyson, Browning emphasizes the effect of solitude upon the individual in his poem “Porphyria’s L...

In order to illustrate the benefits of the “practice of the art of solitude,” Anne Morrow Lindbergh uses a variety of passionate diction, such as “quality,” “incredibly precious,” “richer,” “vivid,” “whole,” and “complete.” These words clearly demonstrate how embracing solitude generates one into a completely different person, as it paves way for a pure and replenished soul.Lastly, Lindbergh’s application of deceptive syntax, such as dashes in between sentences and a plethora of commas, introduces new ideas and creates pauses to show calmness, implying that solitude mollifies our inner soul.Through the utilization of passionate diction, depressing figurative language, and deceptive syntax, Anne Morrow Lindbergh describes the benefits and...

Edna’s Search for Solitude in Kate Chopin's The Awakening Home from a summer at Grand Isle, separated from the company of an agreeable and, eventually beloved, companion and in the stifling company of a disagreeable, oblivious husband, Edna Pontellier sees her home, her garden, her fashionable neighborhood as "an alien world which had suddenly become antagonistic" (76).As she swims out, her senses revive in memory of her father and sister's voices and the odor of dianthus; once again she is being lulled, but this time toward a resolution.Looking at examples of Edna's increasingly acute and outward responses to stimuli and her equally willful behavior, her search for solitude evolves as a woman becoming aware of her choices.Her path to th...

It portrays an image of a man who is fully in despair, left with nothing not even the will to live since he is no blinded by the illusion of life.This poem definitely gives an appropriate definition to the word solitude.This vision that Emily Dickinson mentioned might also be referring to Plato’s “the cave” philosophy which states that all of us (human beings) are in the a cave, chained and blinded towards a wall, seeing a reflection of what we only want to see.In my opinion, the solitude that was discussed in this poem is not the just solitude that just merely means loneliness, but the complete emptiness of life.Continuing to the last line of the poem, “are free to see the angels”, this line has a simple meaning that this man is now fre...

It is even said that his grandmother inspired the character of Remedios in One Hundred Years of Solitude, who, while hanging sheets out on the line to dry, was taken up to heaven.Through Marquez’s use of ghosts and apparitions who manifest themselves only for certain characters, omens and apocalyptic prophecies that are often mistaken or ignored until they come to fruition, and fortunetellers and spiritual guides, like Melquíades and Pilar Ternera, he is able to capture the essence of the tales of his grandparents and the fantastical nature of the Caribbean (Hart 116).Magical Realism is defined by Stephan Hart, author of “Magical Realism in the Americas: Politicised Ghosts in One Hundred Years of Solitude, The House of Spirits, and Belov...

The old man is first seen as very lonely and in search of solitude and quiet.In addition, music would only be a distraction from his thoughts and a disruption of the solitude which quiet brings.The use of shadows and light, along with solitude, gives the sense of loneliness.It is clear that Hemingway's use of direct description, visual and auditory clues, and sense imagery to establish setting help the reader to understand the old man's loneliness and the comfort he receives from the café.The setting, and the use of several literary mechanisms, however, further develop this old man and enable the reader to not only "see" his loneliness but "feel" and understand it.

García Márquez frequently uses miracles in One Hundred Years of Solitude to further express the hypocrisy he finds with religion and social constructs of Latin America.In “One Hundred Years of Solitude”, one largely recognizable theme that Gabriel García Márquez presents is the role of religion.García Márquez portrays how José Arcadio Segundo finds a bit of salvation in his solitude, when he describes, “Free from all fear, José Arcadio Segundo dedicated himself then to peruse the manuscripts of Melquíades many times, and with so much more pleasure when he could not understand them” (336).The passing down of the manuscripts, the devotion to their study, and the impact of the knowledge on the members of the family give the study of the man...

In reality, solitude best describes social withdrawal symptoms, which include passive withdrawal, inhibition, and shyness.William Deresiewicz claims that technology is taking away our privacy, thus ending any sense of solitude.It is unfortunate that Deresiewicz views technology in such a negative light, as I believe he would benefit from technology as much as everyone else has.Solitude is simply a form of isolation that prevents people from understanding and accepting each other.Deresiewicz claims that solitude is important for spiritual growth, citing “the prophet and the hermit, the sadhu and the yogi…” as his sources to support his argument.
