CHAPTER 20. SO DOES SEASON Lance Kloves Mrs.Geach September 28, 2011
Seasonal References In books, movies, and poems especially, the time of year plays a big part in the mood of the work. Seasons can refer to a group of different things such as age, life/death, feeling, and occasions.
Fall represents mid age, deterioration, warmer colors such as orange, and mild weather. Spring represents new age (life), learning, mild colors such as light green, and pleasant weather.
Winter represents death, anger, and cold colors such as light blue. Summer represents freedom, fun, and very warm colors.
WEATHER Weather plays a big role in the mood of writings and films. Weather is very stereotypical. If the main character is sad or angry, then it is raining. If the main character is happy, then it is sunny outside.
You can tell that it is fall in this poem. It mentions yellow leaves, which are often referred to in the fall. You can tell that it is towards the end of fall, because it says explains that it is cold. Fall represents older age. He is explaining his old age, and how he is on the edge of death. …force us to really see not only the thing he describesthe end of autumn and the coming of winterbut the thing hes really talking about, namely the speakers standing on the edge of old age (Foster 20).
GREAT EXPECTATIONS But the village was very peaceful and quiet, and the light mists were solemnly rising, as if to show me the world… (Dickens 168). This was right when Pip was leaving to go to London. The weather is clearing up in the morning representing a new stage of life. The rising fog represents that things are clearing up.
MY LIFE Seasons have a big effect on everyday life for me, and for us all. The way that people view the different seasons here is much apart from the opinions of some one who lives in Alaska. I, personally, like winter much more than I like summer, because summer here is 20,000 degrees. Also, most likely, Alaskans dont like winter as much as I do, because it is -20,000 degrees there at winter time, and maybe because the sun doesnt come up at all. So, if you asked me and an Alaskan to write a poem about winter, mine would probably not contain as many bad words.
