  • Eliot's Poems Run Christian Themes And Values
    2,169 words
    Throughout Thomas Stearns Eliot's poems run Christian themes and values that evoke a critical view of society.

He himself has been criticized for "unnecessary obscurity" and for "author ian severity" (Bradley, 1163). Throughout his poems and other works, he professes a distinct critique upon society due mainly because of his belief that Christianity should play a majo...
  • Jack Kerouacs Poems
    1,360 words
    The Life and Tragedy of Jack Kerouac Jack Kerouac was a poet who focused on the forgotten people of the world. Wherever he traveled he found the places nobody wanted to find and turned the un-pretty into magnificent poetry. Kerouac used the people no one wanted to remember and turned them into poetic works of art. Jack Kerouacs life was filled with adventure and self-destruction. Born on March 12, 1922, Kerouac grew up in the poor city of Lowell, Massachusetts. His life was tormented with povert...

  • Its Twenty Eight Six Line Stanzas
    1,487 words
    Elizabeth Bishop's 'The Moose' is a narrative poem of 168 lines. Its twenty-eight six-line stanzas are not rigidly structured. Lines vary in length from four to eight syllables, but those of five or six syllables predominate. The pattern of stresses is lax enough almost to blur the distinction between verse and prose; the rhythm is that of a low-keyed speaking voice hovering over the descriptive details. The eyewitness account is meticulous and restrained. The poem concerns a bus traveling to Bo...
  • La Belle Dames Sans Merci
    1,558 words
    GCSE English coursework: comparison of poems. There are many similarities and differences between the two poems: "When We Two Parted", written by Lord Bryon, and "La Belle Dames Sans Merci", written by John Keats. I shall be exploring these poems and seeing connections and differences between them, so that I am able to compare them. The storyline of both poems is based around love, and so they are similar in that respect, however I think the poems bring out different types of emotions. When We T...
  • Specific Part In The Poem
    704 words
    1) "America" is written in a Public voice. McKay writes this poem as though it is meant to be heard by all. However, there are some parts in "America" where it takes a more personal approach. For example, when McKay states "Stealing my breath of life, I will confess I love this cultured hell that tests my youth". and also when he mentions how he gazes into the days ahead. I find in those sections of the poem McKay takes a more personal approach because of the specifics mentioned solely about her...
  • Part Of The Poem
    490 words
    The Tyger In the poem the tyger William Blake shows a lot of symbolism, imagery, and irony. He likes to explain to his audience how he writes with all the knowledge he knows. Reading this poem makes me think of how a person feels when he is taken advantage of at work. Like when ones work is difficult to cope with, suffering, and pain is all that is left. It seems to that in the end all the pain endured happens to what is left for this person and suffering is what hurts the most. William Blake sh...
  • Bishop's Poem To Hughes
    1,490 words
    LADY SINGS THE BLUES What is a song but a poem set to music? Take away the music from a good song and the rhythm of the words will create its own musical sound. "Songs For a Colored Singer", a poem written by Elizabeth Bishop, is a song without the music. Bishop's use of repetitive rhymes creates the lyrical, song like, structure to her poem. The voice of the song belongs to a black woman who encounters adversity throughout the poem. The sum of the elements, a black woman singing about hard time...

  • Eliot Pound Collaboration On The Waste Land
    4,725 words
    Richard Ell man Pound's criticism of The Waste Land was not of its meaning; he liked its despair and was indulgent of its neo-Christian hope. He dealt instead with its stylistic adequacy and freshness. For example, there was an extended, unsuccessful imitation of The Rape of the Lock at the beginning of "The Fire Sermon". It described the lady Fresca (imported to the waste land from "Gerontion" and one day to be exported to the States for the soft drink trade). Instead of making her toilet like ...
  • Duality Among Christabel And Geraldine
    1,174 words
    Christabel by Samuel Taylor Coleridge is a poem that precious itself of being ambiguous. This is because, apparently, its author had conceived it as a larger poem and said to have the complete plot in mind. However at some point he gave up his idea of writing it complete and published the first two parts. The highlights of these two parts is what I pretend to comment on inthe following text. The thing that called my attention the most about the poem is its vivid, if somewhat dark, imagery. At th...
