  • Title Of The Poem
    1,196 words
    Expressing love for a woman can be done in such a way, that it causes the destruction of her soul. A very thought provoking poem, Rape, written by Adrienne Rich, provides a rich example of a world that is often hidden. Although the poet uses numerous elements, such as imagery, to disguise her true intentions, a good understanding will allow us to see it for what it truly is, a cry for help. The title of the poem doesn t leave much for the reader to uncover. Using Rape as a title shows her direct...
  • Seafarer's Suffering At The Sea
    1,862 words
    The Two Voices of The Seafarer There is much argument in the literary field as to whether there is more than one speaker in the Old English poem The Seafarer. In this brief essay we will look at some of the previous criticisms of the last two centuries, and through them attempt to prove that the speaker of the poem is the same one throughout. The author of The Seafarer is unknown. Its manuscript is untitled and unique, and is thought to have been inscribed around 975 AD. It survives on four page...

    ... you sit and the chair where I sit. The law says two strangers shall eat breakfast together after nights on the horn of an Arctic moon. Mag By Carl Sandburg wish to god I never saw you, Mag.

  • Pagan And The Poem
    873 words
    Beowulf and Christianity There are stories told all over the world handed down from generation to generation. Some remember these stories by memory, but are lost in time, and some write them down to be remembered forever as a part of history. Beowulf is one such story that has been mysteriously remembered for many centuries. I've very much enjoyed reading Beowulf. However, since this story has been around for so long many people have added, reduced, or omitted bits and pieces of the story. In ot...
  • Structure And The Meaning In The Preludes
    380 words
    In this paper I will explain The Form, The Structure and The Meaning in the Preludes I through IV written by T.S. Eliot. Form is the metrical and stanziac organization of a poem. T.S. Eliot write the first Prelude in a 13-line stanza. He writes the second Prelude in Cinquain's. He uses 15 stanza form in Prelude three. For Prelude four he uses 9-Quatrain-Tercet. I believe that he wrote these Preludes in Traditional writting because it has metrics and stanziac writings and Can dence which is phras...
  • Poem Kubla Khan By Samuel Taylor Coleridge
    587 words
    A wise man once said, Nature in all its glory can be the deliverer of life or the destroyer of all that is good. In the poem Kubla Khan, by Samuel Taylor Coleridge, nature takes up a major portion of the poem as Coleridge described the dream world of Khan. This poem reveals the romantic elements of nature, championing the individual and freely expressed emotion. Nature is a dominating element in this intriguing poem. Khan was a savage Mongolian ruler who enjoyed chaos. This chaos plays a major p...
  • Angelou's Guilt
    304 words
    Angelou's poem My Guilt addresses racism and the apathetic reactions of African Americans. Rhythm and tone are key elements in conveying the mournful message of a person who has identified their sins, and wishes to repent. In the first stanza, I believe that Angelou is trying to give the idea that over the past few centuries, blacks have grown deaf and blind to the injustices being done against them. The lines "My guilt is "slavery's chains", to long / the clang of iron falls down the years" sug...

    1,422 words
    WHY IS SHAKESPEARE REGARDED AS THE GREATEST IN ENGLISH LITERATURE, AND WHAT IS IT ABOUT HIM AND HIS WORK THAT DISTINGUISHES HIM FROM THE REST In the process that it took to choose the topic, which I was supposed to write about, I had a couple of choices that I could ve written about. Maybe An tigon and Oedipus, or maybe another poet or poem that was discussed in class, but I couldn t think of anything that I could write five pages about or anything that I would enjoy learning and writing about, ...
