    2,860 words
    How Do You Interpret In 1956, Clive Staples Lewis wrote an intellectually deep book, which he titled "Till We have Faces". It is considered one of his best works although it is not one of his better-known works. This particular novel provides one with many ways to interpret. There are so many symbols, metaphors and at times the mythic retelling can appear to be an allegory. Till We Have Faces is a wonderful retelling of the Greek myth of Cupid and Psyche. In this myth, Psyche is not allowed to s...

  • Theme Of Eternal Innocence And Beauty
    1,172 words
    Ode on a Grecian Urn John Keats portrays the theme of eternal innocence and the sufficiency of beauty throughout this poem. The Grecian urn, passed down through countless centuries to the time of the speaker's viewing of it, exists outside of time in the human sense - it does not age, it does not die, and it is alien to all such concepts. In the speaker's meditation, this creates an intriguing paradox for the human figures carved into the side of the urn: they are free from time, but they are si...

    Review of 'Ode on a Grecian Urn' by John Keats The 'Ode on a Grecian Urn' portrays what Keats sees on the urn himself, only his view of what is going on.

And so we ask ourselves the ...
  • Beauty In Your Own Work
    1,485 words
    On Beauty in a State I once heard the comment "beauty can save the world". This struck me as whimsical because I had always thought of beauty as pleasing and enjoyable and that's about it.

To Plato, the presence of beauty in a state is the measure of the most important qualities of the state, primarily justice. In our day, beauty is often synonymous with such words as loveliness, attractiveness, charm, splen...
  • Truth And Beauty
    1,286 words
    Romantic literature, particularly poetry, often sees man in communication with natural world, rather than with other men. It trusts instincts, the emotions and the heart rather than reason, intellect and head. "The romantic believes and trusts only himself, believing that society and civilization corrupt humanity's natural innocence and instinct for good". (English Literature-Martin Stephen. 220) John Keats in his poems is captured by love, truth and beauty. "It appears to suggest that the whole...
