The stranger – blackout poetry

The poem “The Stranger” by Gord Downie includes a few poetic devices and when the readers understand that, they can get the denotative meaning as well as connotative meaning. Firstly, literal meaning is the boy is escaping from residential school and recalling his memory in the past. The poem has repetition. Speaker keeps saying “I am the stranger” (Downie, 1) and its emphasis on the struggle for identity. “What is in my head/ What is in my chest” (Downie,15-16) this is end rhyme that gives the meaning like no one understands his experience. Moreover, this poem has few symbols one of that is the ‘path.’ The path means freedom, and the speaking is waling a long path. Its connotative means; the speaker is walking for his freedom. Also, “Let me catch my breath” (Downie, 20) this means he wants to escape from those who wish to detain for the school. For the imagery, it helps and build abundant emotion of the poem. “Navigate the mud” (Downie, 5) this shows that he is trying to find the better lifestyle. Looking at the meaning that the author wanted to convey through this poem, you cannot change somebody from who they indeed are, or people run from their problems when there is not an outlet to communicate them. While reading and analyze this poem, readers can find out the historical fact about residential school. The author creates many poetic devices, and it makes the situations and emotions more realistic. The readers analyze that author’s poem’s devise and get indirect experience.

“The Secret Life of Walter Mitty” Narrative

BANG. The big and robust sound came out. At that moment Mitty closed his eyes. In a short time, he thinks his past like a panorama in the dark. “Scot!” shouted his sergeant. Soon the surrounding is noisy. He thought ‘Am I already came to the afterlife?” Mitty opened his eyes slowly the man who aimed at the rifle was laid down and bleeding in his left eye. A sergeant cries a lot. Mitty thought perhaps they were best friends. He spoke in a sarcastic tone. “Gun miscarried. Too bad, but well, thanks to that, I am alive. “He feels guilty. A man died before his eyes, but he should not show off his guilty. At that moment the rope descended from heaven. His team tried to rescue him by sending a helicopter. He thought, ‘if they come more early before you die.’ However, he looked at eyes which staring at him and said, “if you want to follow your friend, come to visit me.’ A colleague of Mitty, who came down from the rope, hit him on the shoulder a few times.

“Hey, Hey! Get out of here; I have to go down.” A painter dangling from the rope hit Mitty’s shoulder. “Oh, sorry. Did you paint his building?” Mitty said. “yep.,” said painter. “Honey, what are you doing here?” said his wife. “Nothing,” said Mitty. “Ahh…oh here!” his wife gave a mask to him. “What is this?” said Mitty. “Can’t you remember? We have a recital in the church on this weekend!”Says his wife with disdainful. She continued, but it’s fade out slowly. “How could you forget? What are you thinking? How come you’ve been so space out lately!” …“hey dud, are you coming tonight?” a woman said. “Of course everyone is coming! This ball is the only time to see the royalty! I’ve never seen them. They’re pretty much be shrouded in mystery. I can’t wait for it!” Two women passed Mitty. “See? Today is the big opportunity for stealing costly things. Everyone in this town, come to this royal ball. Also, it’s a masked ball! The golden opportunity of life!” Said Pitter who is Mitty’s peer. “Yes. My children are waiting. I couldn’t feed them this week, but if success today, we don’t need to beg for a month’s worth of food.” Said Mitty. “Okay, good luck my friend,” Pitter said. Mitty covered his face with a mask so anybody could not see his face. Looking at the back of the Pitter who goes farther, he said, “Mitty Just think about kids. Nothing matter for me. It’ll be fine.” Mitty walks naturally into people, and a clock pointed 9 o’clock. The entrance to the castle was frantic with crowds of people. Mitty tries to put his hand into a woman’ bag for steal something. But suddenly, an uncovered memory makes confusing Mitty. ‘What is this…?’ These inscrutable memories come up frequently these days. Which is considered his memories even though he knows it is not his memory. Mitty can’t-do anything. “Hey! I was looking out you! Wow, man, you look cool today.” Pitty suddenly came to Mitty, and he snatched his hand with a green tone. “Watch out! You almost got caught.” Pitty whispered. “Thanks,” Mitty said with wobble voice. “Take care.” Pitty disappears into people. Mitty keeps wondering around “I..I can’t….” Mitty goes to the terrace, and he takes a sigh. Suddenly the fireworks cover the sky. He looked at the fireworks and missed it very much.

At that moment, every sound fades out, but only one voice comes out. “Prisoner number 1004. Frank Downey. Suspicion, theft, and murder. Punishment, public hangings. Do you have any last word?”

“For goodness ‘ sake, lose all memories of life in the next life.”

Tears ran down Mitty’s cheeks. “No…” the night of the pandemonium is deepening with fancy fireworks.

Living with memories of past life, is it an opportunity or a punishment? Mitty struggled with his affliction.

Capital punishment “Two Fishermen”

  1. In 1865, the execution of hanging from murder, rebellion and rape was legalized and actualized. In 1966, it was restricted to the murder of a police officer or officer, but the death penalty was removed in the 1976 Canadian Criminal Code.
    Thereafter, although the reintroduction of the death penalty was discussed, it was replaced with a life sentence without parole. In recent years(2001), it has been ruled that all but exceptional cases require the Constitution not to impose the death penalty. The setting of the “Two Fishermen” is 1900′-1930′, so capital punishment is allowed when people did Crimes of murder, treason, or rape.
  2. Even if Thomas Delaney is acting to defend his wife, murder can not be justified. The law should be concluded with only the situation and the facts of both sides in the most fair sense, and emotion and understanding can not be involved. So Thomas Delaney’s situation is understandable, but his murder is not justified for any reason.
