As you have explored this website you may have noticed a connective thread. The speaker of each subtopic of the literary works is in pain. Although most would like to deny it, writing and drawing about the emotion pain is rather easy due to the fact that everyone has experienced it once in their life. With minor differences the speakers of the poems Atlantis and Not Waving but Drowning, the song Unknown Soldier, the drawing Resignation, the play Romeo and Juliet, Aphrodite from the novel series the House of Night, and finally the movie How to Train Your Dragon have all experienced pain and displayed it through their works. The speaker of Not Waving but Drowning written by Stevie Smith is literally drowning within their own sorrow instead of waving to show their happiness. The speaker within Atlantis by Conrad Aiken lost their happiness and friends as it sunk to the bottom of the sea. Within the song Unknown Soldier sang by the band Breaking Benjamin is contemplating suicide as a release from the pain they are experiencing. The woman in Resignation drawn by Fransisco Goya is giving up on any notion of joy just as she is giving up on staying awake and is resigning herself to a life filled with pain. Aphrodite from the House of Night written by P.C. and Kristen Cast may seem like the antagonist but in reality she is a creature alone and filled with pain. How to Train Your Dragon directed by Dean DeBlois and Chris Sandersat looks like the perfect child's movie at first glance but once analyzed the viewer realizes that the world filled with dragons and vikings is a fantasy world created by a person in order to escape their pained-filled reality. Pain is an emotion that can be found everywhere whether it be a poem, song, fine art, play, novel, or even a movie. It is one of the few emotions that everyone can relate to and the authors and artists take advantage of this to make their works more realistic. One just have to look hard enough and perhaps just as they find the speakers in pain, they can also find the happiness that so cruelly evades the speaker.
