  • Truthful Charter Of The Mirror
    759 words
    In the first stanza, the 'I am not cruel, only truthful' phrase reveals the mirror's personality and charter. Unlike humans a mirror cannot judge her with opinions. Sylvia Plath uses onomatopoeia to give the mirror human characteristics. On line five she writes 'The eye of a little god, four-cornered' which shows that the mirror is given God-like powers over the women. It becomes almost an obsessive relationship between the mirror and the women because she looks to the mirror for comfort only to...

    Dudley Randall -- Ballad of Birmingham (1966) Response The Ballad of Birmingham resembles a traditional ballad in that it tells a story in a song-like manner.

First of all, the most visible element of importance is the irony. A kid dying in a church where his mom told him to go to be safe is very ironic and it c...

  • Ideas Of Shadows And Eldorado
    739 words

From a realists point of view, when times become challenging or success is unlikely, it is wiser to give up and stop wasting time. A romantic, however, views the pursuit of passions and human nature as the only goal; every worry or concern that lies in the way of emotional thought is only arbitrary. This poem is written in an AAB CCB rhyme scheme and consist...
