In the short story, " The Necklace", written by Guy de Maupassant .
and the poem, "Kindly Unhitch that Star, Buddy" written by Odgen Nash, .
both works deal with success. Everyone wants to achieve success in many .
ways, but success doesn't come very easily. In each work the authors use.
language and structure to convey ideas about success.
In "The Necklace", Mathlid Loisel wants to look and be successful .
anyway she can. Mathlid Loisel borrows a necklace for one night and loses .
it; she is forced to pay for it for the next ten years. During the time she is.
paying off the cost of the necklace, Mathlid Loisel becomes old and looks run down looking. .
Mathlide Loisel realizes that she had been relativity successful after losing .
the necklace. The theme of the necklace is that sometimes you are more .
successful than you may think.
In "Kindly Unhitch That Star, Buddy", the Poet Ogden Nash .
describes success in his poem. Nash is telling us that people would .
rather be successes than failures. Nash feels that it's best that we all can't be .
successful because then there wouldn't be anyone left to despair. In the .
poem Nash describes how people have to strive to become successful. The .
theme of this poem is that success doesn't come easily and that you must .
work to become successful.
In each work, the authors use language and structure to convey ideas .
about success. In the poem, "Kindly Unhitch That Star, Buddy", there are .
many examples of irony. Odgen Nash says in his poem, " and if all the ones .
who say no said yes, and vice versa, such is the fate of humanity that ninety-.
nine percent of them still wouldn't be any better off than they were before." .
He also uses alliteration, assonance and rhyme in his poem. Odgen Nash is .
very wise by using language and structure to convey ideas about success. .
This makes the reading much more interesting.
Therefore, in "The Necklace and Kindly unhitch the Star, Buddy, we .
