    The subject is a small vulnerable boy and ‘he came seeking comfort’ (L5)- he looks up at his father. The alliteration of ‘blisters beaded’ shows the harshness of the skin on his ‘tender skin’ (L6). While the speaker succeeds in destroying the nettles at first, the final suggests that he will not be able to defend his child always. ‘My son would often feel sharp wounds again’. There seems to be a sad resignation about this…

    "The Cold passed reluctantly from the earth, and the retiring fogs revealed an army stretched out on the hills, resting. As the landscape changed from brown to green, the army awakened, and began to tremble with eagerness at the noise of rumors. It cast its eyes upon the roads, which were growing from long troughs of liquid mud to proper thoroughfares. A river, amber-tinted in the shadow of its banks, purled at the army’s feet; and at night, when the stream hand become of sorrowful blackness, one could see across it the red , eyelike gleam of hostile campfires set in the low brows of distant hills.”…

    Do not think my brains are squeezed shut, like the ram’s, by the roots of horns. Flanks atremble, eyes like stones, he stares at as much of the world as he can see and feels it surging in him, filling his chest as the melting snow fills dried-out creekbeds, tickling his gross, lopsided balls and charging his brains with the same unrest that made him suffer last year at this time, and the year before, and the year before that. (He's forgotten them all.) His hindparts shiver with the usual joyful, mindless ache to mount whatever happens near--the storm piling up black towers to the west, some rotting, docile stump, some spraddle-legged ewe. I cannot bear to look. "Why can't these creatures discover a little dignity?" I ask the sky. The sky says nothing, predictably. I make a face, uplift a defiant middle finger, and give an obscene little kick. The sky ignores me, forever unimpressed. Him too I hate, the same as I hate these brainless budding trees, these brattling birds.…

The first child was named April. The second child was named May. What was the third child’s name? 2. A clerk at a butcher shop stands five feet ten inches tall and wears size 13 sneakers.

What word in the English language is always spelled incorrectly? 6. Billie was born on December 28th, yet her birthday always falls in the summer. How is this possible? 7.

Which is correct to say, “The yolk of the egg is white” or “The yolk of the egg are white?” 10. A farmer has five haystacks in one field and four haystacks in another.

But they all illustrate several brain idiosyncrasies that affect how we make decisions in the world. Thanks to the way our brain works, we have a very strong tendency to see what we want to see and what we expect to see. This has huge implications when studying our customers, markets, competitors, and…

    In nettles imagery is used to describe the nettles: “that regiment of spite”, “green spears” “fierce parade”. Martial imagery is juxtaposed against the domestic setting. They portray the aggressive nature of the nettles but also signify the father’s perspective, as he sees the nettles as a threat against his son and therefore must protect him. This metaphor is continued as the nettles ,“tall recruits”, are “called up” (echoing the language of conscription) and his “son would often feel sharp wounds again” suggesting that this army cannot be defeated, or maybe simply that the father cannot protect his son from the inevitable. “White blisters beaded on his tender skin”: the alliteration of the ‘b’ sound is soothing and emphasises the pain he must feel on his “tender skin”. “He offered us a watery grin”, shows the vulnerability of the son again showing the parents need to protect him but makes the reader question if it justifies the father’s aggression as he “slashed in fury” to get rid of the nettles.…

    « The silence of the forest was more oppressive than the heat, and at this hour of the day there was not even the whine of insects. Only when Jack himself roused a gaudy bird from a primitive nest of sticks was the silence shattered and echoes set ringing by a harsh cry that seemed to come out of the abyss of ages. Jack himself shrank at this cry with a hiss of indrawn breath, and for a minute became less a hunter than a furtive thing, ape-like among the tangle of trees. Then the trail, the frustration, claimed him again and he searched the ground avidly. By the trunk of a vast tree that grew pale flowers on its grey bark he checked, closed his eyes, and once more drew in the warm air; and this time his breath came short, there was even a passing pallor in his face, and then the surge of blood again. He passed like a shadow under the darkness of the tree and crouched, looking down at the trodden ground at his feet. »…
