  • Poem By Isaac Watts
    630 words
    Does Poetry Matter To me poetry does not matter. I do not like poetry because a poem is just a passage that contains a hidden meaning and I can never figure out what a poem is about. If poetry was not around then authors would just come out and say what they wanted to say. Their thoughts would not get confused and people would not miss the meaning that the author is trying to get across. Poetry is just an art form like painting, music, sculpting, and writing. You could take away any art form and...
  • Two Poems
    359 words
    Judith Wright's second anthology Woman to Man (1949) is better known for the freshness of her approach in examining until-then taboo subjects of sexual desire and especially women's sexuality. Such economical though passionate poems as Woman to Child and Woman to Man, apart from confounding thousands of adolescents in their final school-year examination papers, provided a new language for exploring the sacredness of sexual union, pregnancy and birth. Even these poems, considered by many among th...
  • Carl Sandburg
    1,123 words
    Modernism stemmed from the need to overcome the repressed, overconfident Victorian dominant culture and forge a new, forward thinking culture aimed expressing a sense of urban cultural dislocation, along with an awareness of psychological theories. Carl Sandburg stayed at the forefront of the modernist poetry movement while compelling people to look deeper than the simplistic workingmen's language and free verse he employed in his poetry. While many modernist poets seemed to be exploring the mor...
  • 5 Slaves
    346 words
    Lucy Terry, who was a slave until 1756, wrote this poem while she was enslaved. This is a poem about the attack on Old Deerfield. In this poem, she talks about how the Indians killed 5 enslaved men. She seems to have a great attachment to making a point of saying their names so they will not be forgotten. They must be people that she knew, people that she knew to be great, or just people who were slaves also. It was August 25, 1746 and the Indians were out to kill some very fearless enslaved men...

    600 words
    Professor Vetter English 102 01 December 03 Analysis of an Irish man foresees his death. The reading does not reflects accurately the author's intentions, point of view, or feelings. Instead, it portrays a poor analysis of the poem. The author does not reject humanity; he does not imply Irish people cannot be happy because of the landscape. In addition, he does not suggest society should share his own feelings towards nature. The reading suggests since the aviator neither love the people his gua...

  • Auden's Poem September 1 1939 Review
    630 words
    On September 1, 1939, Hitler's forces invaded Poland as the rest of the world watched. The ramifications of this were immense for the Jewish people, as many of them were rounded up and shipped off to concentration camps. Hitler's ideas and actions as frightening as they seemed, were far from original. Mussolini rose to power in Italy and the fascists were the ruling party in Spain. Europe and her Jews were burning. W.H. Auden in "September 1 1939" could not help but be overwhelmed by the tragic ...

It is heaven just picturing it in your mind: sandy beaches, tropical drinks, and the sound of the ocean in the background. All of your colleagues will be jealous of your suntan when you return, and when you do, you must become disillusioned because your vacation is now over, and you have to live your life the way you left it before h...
  • Rise This Poem
    1,923 words
    African American Poetry The theme I chose for the anthology is African American poetry. I did not choose this topic to enhance my knowledge of other cultures or to deepen my understanding of other races or ethnicities. No, I cannot take credit for that. Rather, I chose this topic for the simple reason that it was different. I had gotten bored of reading poems by the same type of people in similar situations in life. So, I found poems written by poets from distinct backgrounds and a different dif...
