Perks

...The “Wallflower” on the Big Screen “…And in that moment, I swear, we were infinite.” When I knew that Stephen Chbosky’s moving and illustrious novel will have a movie adaptation, I was real skeptic about it. With the overly mainstream use of infamous books as a direction for Hollywood films this generation, and being an aficionado of the book itself, I hoped that The Perks of Being a Wallflower will be done justice. Or else, I’ll be shouting, “No, damn you, Hollywood. Is nothing sacred to you?,” like Ezra Miller did in his Jimmy Kimmel Live! guesting. After watching the movie though, my wish was granted, sort of. Perks as a movie did not fully lived up to its original published form, but it was still able to leave its audience with a tug at the heartstrings. The Perks of Being a Wallflower tells about Charlie (played by Logan Lerman), who enters his first year of high school while coping with the suicide of his only friend in middle school, Michael and is pretty much trying to “participate” with the rest of the world. He also writes to his “friend,” an unknown persona whom he describes as nice though they’ve never actually met. However, high school isn’t so kind to him. If not neglected, he gets bullied. Luckily, Charlie befriends his English teacher, Bill, who believes in Charlie’s talent in writing. Charlie also makes a friend out of seniors, Patrick (Ezra Miller), who he approaches first in a football game which is his attempt to overcome shyness...

The subject of the poem is towards the speaker’s mistress. | Paraphrase | In Andrew Marvell’s poem “To His Coy Mistress,” the speaker is talking to his mistress throughout the poem. In the first stanza, the speaker tells his mistress that if there were more time, her coyness would not be a crime and that he would be able to compliment and admire her if they had to time to sit down, think where they would walk, and their love would grow slowly but vastly. Furthermore, the speaker also states that if he had more time, he would focus on each part of his mistress’s body for hundreds of years until he had gotten to her heart. In the next stanza, the speaker states that they do not have time, since life is short and death is forever. He states that eventually, beauty will no longer exist due to aging and when she is dead, she will not be able to hear the speaker’s song when inside her coffin. Furthermore, the speaker states that the worms will try to take her virginity and will result in his no longer feeling love for his mistress. In the last two lines of the stanza, he comments that a grave is a nice and private place but does not have much room to be together and embrace. In the last stanza, the speaker once again compliments his mistress’s beauty and youth and that they should embrace just like the birds of prey and play......

For me to have a better understanding about the poem and for me to use the four approaches, I looked for some information and the references are indicated at the last page of my paper. Andrew Marvell was a metaphysical poet usually focused on love and relationship with God. During the sixteenth and seventeenth century, the commonly used themes or motifs of literary pieces are about love, religion and the so-called Latin term carpe diem which means “seize the day”. Before we go on with the four approaches, let us first look into the text. So the literary piece is a lyric poem written...

Andrew Marvell puts it in words that make it seem as if it was very acceptable. The first twenty lines of the poem start to talk about how much this girl means to this perticular man. The main character in the poem talks about how he will wait forever to be with her. He mentions that “We would sit down and think which way To walk and pass our long love’s day.” (st. 3-4) His views as of now are that he wants to take his time and he doesn’t have go anywhere. This man certainly wants to plan things out so that it will be perfect. Another line from the poem that makes him the gentleman that he is portraying to be is “An hundred years should go to praise Thine eyes and on thy forehead gaze. “(st.13-14) I think he is saying that we will give praise to her eyes that are so magnificent. Her eyes are so beautiful, because of which he will praise them for hundred years before they can truly be together. Later on it mentions that he will praise her breast each for two hundred years. The mood is set that this man certainly wants to be with this woman. He is telling her how he feels and wants her to understand that he really wants to be with her.

The Perks of Being a Wallflower Analysis

...The Perks of Being a Wallflower analysis The Perks of Being a Wallflower is the famous book written by Stephen Chbosky about the 15-year-old boy Charlie, who is both the main character and the narrator in the story. Charlie is writing a bunch of letters to his “friend” who we do not know but Charlie is telling this friend absolutely everything he experiences throughout his first year of high school. These experiences include both friends, love, family and death. As mentioned Charlie is a 15-year old boy who is just about to start high school. At first he seems to be confused about his feelings because he says on page 3 that; “I want you to know that I am both happy and sad and I’m still trying to figure out how that could be.” He is also a strong person, even though he has a breakdown towards the end of the book, but he is still standing tall despite the fact that his best friend Michael shot himself and his Aunt Helen molested him as a child and died in a car accident. Charlie is a very observant person, he talks a lot about his family and his friends and how they are doing and that is what makes him a wallflower. Just like Patrick says to Charlie; “You see things and you understand. You’re a wallflower.” Charlie never says much but he sees things and he is aware of everyone’s feelings, like when he sees his sister’s boyfriend hitting her and then tells his teacher, Bill about it. He is also very sensitive and cries easily. He dreams about Sam naked and most boys would...

Perks of Being a Wallflower Conflicts

...1. Dating: In The Perks of Being a Wallflower, Charlie deals with the conflict of having a crush on Sam, and trying to figure out how to deal with his crush. Charlie deals with the conflict of his emotions, but does not just want to fall in love with someone. This is evident in the novel when Charlie states, “It’s just that I don’t want to be somebody’s crush.” Conflicts: Dating In The Perks of Being a Wallflower all of Charlie’s friends are dating except for him. Patrick is dating Brad even though their relationship is secret and Sam is dating Craig. Charlie really doesn’t like the fact that Sam is dating Craig because he doesn’t think Craig is the right person for Sam. “I want Sam to stop liking Craig…It’s just that Craig doesn’t really listen to her when she talks. I don’t mean that he’s a bad guy because he’s not.” (48). It seems as if Charlie wants what is best for Sam however he may be pointing out Craig’s flaws only because he’s in love with Sam and wants her to date him. Friendship Friendship is something that has been difficult but means a lot to Charlie, ever since his best friend Michael committed suicide. “And I think it’s sad because Susa ndoesn’t look as happy. To tell you the truth, she doesn’t like to admit she’s in advanced English class, and she doesn’t like to say ‘hi’ to me in the hall anymore.” (7). Charlie notices a lot about Susan during his first couple of days of school because she is one of the only people he knows. Charlie seems lonely in...
