  • Georgian Book Of Poetry
    10,668 words
    WHY WE SHOULD READ POETRY WHY should one read Poetry That seems to me a good deal like asking: Why should one eat One eats because one has to, to support life, but every time one sits down to dinner one does not say, 'I must eat this meal so that I may not die. ' On the contrary, we eat because we are hungry, and so eating appears to us as a pleasant and desirable thing to do. The necessity for poetry is one of the most fundamental traits of the human race. But naturally we do not take that into...
  • Meaning Of Plato's Theories Through Poetry
    518 words
    I thought this reading was relatively difficult to follow. The first part went into explicit detail. This seemed unnecessary, because Havelock could have explained his logic with less detail. The second part was much easier to follow, but nonetheless was still relatively difficult. Again Havelock went into great detail when it was unnecessary. I generally agreed with Havelock's argument. Although, I found that I did not completely understand the reading until the final pages. These pages had som...

    David Ossman What [did you learn from]... the Black Mountain people, and [William Carlos] Williams From Williams, mostly how to write in my own language-how to write the way I speak rather than the way I think a poem ought to be written-to write just the way it comes to me, in my own speech, utilizing the rhythms of speech rather than any kind of metrical concept. To talk verse. Spoken verse. From Pound, the same concepts that went into the Imagist's poetry-the idea of the image and what an imag...
  • Short Stories And Poems
    474 words
    For as long as I can remember, I've loved to read: short stories, fiction, nonfiction sometimes, even philosophy if nothing else were available. This term I've been given more reading assignments than I can ever remember having to deal with. This term has been extra special because we studied no less than three types of literature: short stories, poetry, and drama. While I was in high school, a short story was a book with less than three hundred pages. This term I learned that even though a shor...
  • Thylias Moss
    1,702 words
    Thylias Moss: A Poet of Many Voices and A Spellbinding Delivery by Eve Silberman Her hands clasped, her head lowered, Thylias Moss sits in a chair in a small room at Ann Arbor's Concordia College and waits for what she calls her "poetry experience" (she dislikes the term "poetry reading") to begin. The 4'10" associate professor of English at Michigan looks timid and school girlish in her high-buttoned blouse, short skirt, tights tucked into rolled-up socks, and high-laced shoes. But once introdu...

    The Victorian Era was a time of originality, elegance, and creative imagination. However, it was also a time of change and of contrast, of very wealthy people and very poor people. It was an era filled with emotion that dominated the lives of many of its poets and its people. The poetry of the period reflected the intensity and depth to which emotion was felt. Poems were filled with images of beauty, romance, love, and sadness. Alfred Lord Tennyson was among the most well known of Victorian poet...
  • Rumi And Mirabai's Poetry In Different Ways
    425 words
    Rumi and Mirabai's poetry, in different ways, has the ability to convey a deep longing for something sacred in their time. Mirabai sometimes refers to herself in the third person that deepens her desperation of being heard by the dark one. In overall poetic structure, Mirabai's work is seldom more than one page whereas Rumi's poems tend to be several pages in length and the different sections broken down into smaller poems. After hearing the Songs of Mirabai in class, the persistent longing for ...
