How does Plain Demonstrate the Courage of Aria in lines 1-16? Plain demonstrates Aria’s courage very firmly In this passage through his tremendous choice of words, use of superlatives, trillions, sentence structure, punctuation and religious symbolism. He illustrates in great depth how Aria had the ability to conceal her grief by putting on a brave face seemingly at the flick of a switch and hide the death of her son from her husband.
Plinks use of the superlative greatly demonstrates Aria’s courage.Aria’s son was a “livens pulchritude” making his death seem all the worse. Plinks use of the superlative is very powerful as he wasn’t Just a young man but the most handsome of young men. The fact that RNA “dust squeals” shows how much courage she could muster in the strength she had to not succumb to her grief when in view of others; Poplin’s use of the superlative to describe her son highlights and strengthens this demonstration of courage.
Plinks use of trillions exhibits Aria’s courage impressively. For her son, Aria “tit funds parfait, tit digit… Gnarls asset Mauritius” shows her fortitude In being able to prepare and even lead her son’s funeral procession, all while Pupates her husband was completely unaware of his own son’s death. The writer’s demonstration of Earl’s grit here Is quite poignant because it shows she has made the conscious decision not to tell her husband that their son has died, and conceals this from him.
Whether she was trying to protect him and keep him healthy because he “aggregated… Aggressive” the reader will never know although it is a reasonable assumption to reach.Plinks general choice and position of words display the depth of Aria’s mettle even when confronted with her beloved husband. “Quotient” Aria entered Pupates’ bedroom, she would “Islamabad fiver failure delta commodore”_ The word “Quotient” shows that he didn’t pretend that her son was alive just once but ‘every time’ she entered his bedroom which shows astounding pluck even faced with her husband when checking on his health.
She even lies about her son being “commodore” covering up his death and her grief when speaking to her husband. Through this woman’s spoken word, Plain reinforces her backbone.When Pupates was lying Ill In his bed inquiring about his son, RNA would reply that “been doorbell, Libertine clubs consult.
” RNA shows great presence of mind telling her husband that he slept well and Is willingly eating food. She must have felt tremendously guilty and Plain has shown ere that she Is very brave and courageous in being able to lie straight to her seriously ill Husband. Whether she was right to lie to him is another matter, however Plain shows she still greatly cares for her husband and doesn’t want him to possibly become depressed or grief stricken which In Itself Is brave and shows great sacrifice on her part.In the last paragraph Plain continues his emphasis through punctuation, the length of description and through religious symbolism. After Aria had stabbed herself in the chest with a dagger she “porringer Marriott, adder voice immortal AC pane divined: “Pate, non doled. We can deduce that she killed herself in a calm way because of the punctuation Plain employs and how he has structured this section.
Each stage of her stabbing Is split by a comma to show that n us Kill nearest quickly to get It over Walt; seen 010 It In a very controlled manner withstanding great pain for a prolonged time.She utters in an immortal and almost divine voice: Pupates, it doesn’t hurt. This is very touching since Aria, a healthy woman, killed herself to show that it doesn’t hurt.
As she said this in an ‘immortal’ voice this connotes that it will last throughout the ages, along with some of the most arouses leaders’ words and shows a degree of epic heroism; again Plinks word choice showing her courage. Aria’s voice as well as being ‘immortal’ is described as also ‘almost divine’.This religious symbolism of being ‘divine’ connotes that her words were worthy of a god, or being godlike in their nature, and if the reader takes into account the time around which this was written when the vast majority of people thought the gods were almighty beings and worshipped them so dutifully, then it is clear to see that this is an extremely powerful comparison for Plain to make, proving hat Aria is almost akin to a god herself through her self-sacrifice.
Throughout this passage Plain has demonstrated and developed Aria’s character very powerfully. Through her spoken word and through his wonderful use and choice of interesting vocabulary, punctuation and varied sentence structure, Plain has worked them together adding up to a very brave character who kept her grief well concealed in the toughest of situations; a mother having lost her son. She had nerves of steel to have calmly committed suicide and Aria has indeed been shown to have been possessed of incredible courage.
