  • Ode To The West Wind
    353 words
    In Keats "Ode to a Nightingale" and Shelleys "Ode to the West Wind" both poets show much inspiration within their poetry. The bird in "Ode to a Nightingale" represents a supernatural being conjured up by the speaker. The wind in "Ode to the West Wind" inspires the speaker while serving as a "destroyer and preserver". In the poem, "Ode to a Nightingale" the reader sees that the poet draws his inspiration through hemlock which the poet had drunk and some kind of opiate. The poet speaks about dying...
  • Singing Contest With The Muses
    776 words
    The Muses The Muses are the Greek goddesses who preside over the arts and sciences and inspire those who excel at these pursuits. Daughters of Zeus and Mnemosyne ("memory"), they were born in Pieria on the foot of Mount Olympus. Their nurse, Eupheme, raised them along with her son, Crocus the hunter, who was transported into the sky as Sagittarius upon his death. Their name denotes 'memory' or 'a reminder', since in earlier times poets having no books to read from, relied on their memories. The ...
  • Brilliant Description By Keats
    829 words
    Shelleys To a Skylark is very structured, and rhythmical, having the end of a line rhyming with the second line after it, for example heart (4) and art (5). This happens on every stanza, with the majority of the time there is two sets of these rhyming pairs. This is not the stereotypical romantic poem, full of chaos, and disorder as there is a lot of order and structure in this poem, enabling rhyme and melody (35) to shine though. Keats Ode to a Nightingale has a first impression of more length,...
  • Song Free Bird
    745 words
    On their Gold and Platinum album Lynyrd Skynyrd produced a song titled Free bird. It is a very popular song that turned out to be a big hit all over the country. It was written by band members Allen Collins and Ronnie VanZant. I think that this is a very good song with good lyrics that display a lot of meaning. Lynyrd Skynyrd is a southern rock band that has been very popular throughout the late nineteen hundreds. They have produced many songs on many different albums. Songs that come to my mind...
  • Spring As Life And Winter As Death
    1,907 words
    "Whistling of Birds" by David Herbert Lawrence is a depiction of the vividness of his writings and his own artistic vision and thought. In this essay he has elucidated the change of seasons- change from winter to spring- in an impressive way by the use of images, similes and metaphors... Winter, as he narrates, brings woe and causes wreck. The intense frost that sustained for several weeks caused the death of birds. The remnants of the beautiful bevy of birds - lapwings, starlets, thrushes, lied...
  • Actual Bird The Poet
    2,503 words
    Charles Brown, a friend with whom Keats was living when he composed this poem, wrote, In the spring of 1819 a nightingale had built her nest near my house. Keats felt a tranquil and continual joy in her song; and one morning he took his chair from the breakfast table to the grass-plot under a plum-tree, where he sat for two or three hours. When he came into the house, I perceived he had some scraps of paper in his hand, and these he was quietly thrusting behind the books. On inquiry, I found tho...
  • Birds And Sea
    2,124 words
    Palomo 1 Michael Palomo American Literature Professor Sanchez May 9, 2000 Walt Whitman: An American Poet The ability to pinpoint the birth or beginning of the poet lifestyle is rare. It is rare for the observer as it is for the writer. The Walt Whitman poem Out of the Cradle Endlessly Rocking is looked at by most as just that. It is a documentation, of sorts, of his own paradigm shift. The realities of the world have therein matured his conceptual frameworks. In line 147 we read "Now in a moment...
  • Birds And Other Living Creatures
    1,838 words
    Communication and Signaling in the Language of Birds Scientific research has revealed that throughout the living world, communication is just as important as it is to human beings. Countless living things lack the capacity for human speech, yet they employ entirely different methods in order to communicate with each other-and even with other species. Some of the most dramatic examples of this is displayed by birds. The astonishing behavior and ability to communicate that birds exhibit also total...
