"The Black Cat" Essay
Number of words: 397 - Number of pages: 2

.... who is never specifically identified, is running from his life by drinking alcohol. The alcohol eventually leads to the destruction of the first black cat, Pluto. The man felt the need to escape from Pluto even though the animal was one of his most beloved pets. His wife and the second cat are being run from merely for the disturbing conscious that they provide for him. Bizarre and unusual plots are often found in the Romantic period, and Poe does not hold back in his efforts. To deliberately cut the cats eye out of its socket is both bizarre and unus .....

Sharpio's "Auto Wreck": The Theme Of Death
Number of words: 1076 - Number of pages: 4

.... possible higher meanings. The thoughtsexpressed in the poem help to suggest these other meanings by clearly stating what is being felt by the speaker and the crowd around the accident. By stating clearly and vividly the emotions of the scene, it is easy for the reader to identify the theme itself, and also to identify with it. In the first stanza, the speaker describes the ambulance arriving on the scene more so than the actual scene itself. The ambulance is described using words such as "wings", "dips", and "floating", giving the impression of the h .....

A Critical Analysis Of The Poem Entitled "Tract" By William Carlos Williams
Number of words: 1984 - Number of pages: 8

.... this the coffin lies by its own weight. No wreaths please- especially no hot house flowers. Some common memento is better, something he prized and is known by: his old clothes-a few books perhaps- God knows what! You realize how we are about these things my townspeople- something will be found-anything even flowers if he had come to that. So much for the hearse. For heaven's sake though see to the driver! Take off the silk hat! In fact that's no place at all for him- up there unceremoniously dragging our friend out to his own dignity! Bring him down-bring .....

Analysis Of "13 Ways Of Looking At A Blackbird"
Number of words: 571 - Number of pages: 3

.... In the second stanza, Stevens goes on to say that he was of “three minds, Like a tree, In which there are three blackbirds.” This was the first time he makes the connection between seeing the blackbird and him himself metaphorically being the blackbird. He makes this connection even more clear in the fourth stanza when he says that “A man and a woman Are one. A man and a woman and a blackbird are one." In the sixth stanza he goes back to being the poet observer as he watches the blackbird fly by his icy window. Again in the next stanza he goes back to the point .....

Analysis Of Frost's "Home Burial"
Number of words: 444 - Number of pages: 2

.... will regain the closeness it might have had prior to the child's death. The highly dramatic poem underscores the impact of loss and the need for communication or discussion of loss by those involved. When no reconciliation occurs, the loss intensifies to become destructive.In the poem “Home Burial”, Robert Frost talks about a couple in the verge of breaking up. I believe that the main issue in this poem is the death of a child that has not been addressed by the parents. A staircase, where the action of the poem occurs, symbolizes both the ability of husband an .....

Dulce Et Decorum Est: Analysis Of Military Life
Number of words: 695 - Number of pages: 3

.... die in honor. Most of the men going off to fight during the World Wars could be classified as men at all. A person would be oblivious to this fact, however, if they relied on Owen's descriptive text alone concerning the way he saw his fellow soldiers in combat while describing his chimera, for they were "knock-kneed, coughing like hags"and "bent double, like old beggars under sacks". These words don't necessarily bring to mind a healthy 17-year old boy, does it? The other words he used- "drunk" "lame" and "blind,"- all showed soldiers' impaired state .....

Robert Frost's "Two Tramps In Mud Time"
Number of words: 491 - Number of pages: 2

.... for the common good/That day, giving a loose to my soul,/I spent on the unimportant wood." The narrator refers to releasing his suppressed anger not upon evils that threaten "the common good", but upon the "unimportant wood". The appparent arrogance of the narrator is revealed as well by his reference to himself as a Herculean figure standing not alongside nature, but over it: "The grip on earth of outspread feet,/The life of muscles rocking soft/And smooth and moist in vernal heat." Unexpectedly, the narrator then turns toward nature, apparently abandoni .....

An Examination Of Similes In The Iliad - And How Homer's Use Of Them Affected The Story
Number of words: 1887 - Number of pages: 7

.... upon story of the Greeks, their heroes, and their exploits, while the Trojan's are conspicuously quiet, sans Hector of course. It could almost be assumed that throughout time most of the knowledge of the battle from the Trojan side had been lost. Considering the ability to affect feelings with similes, and the one-sided view of history, Homer could be using similes to guide the reader in the direction of his personal views, as happens with modern day political "spin". These views that Homer might be trying to get across might be trying to favor Troy. It .....
