A Review Of A Shakespearean Sonnet
Number of words: 628 - Number of pages: 3

.... the subject is better than a summer's day. The sonnet is essentially made up of two different parts, the first being the problem and the second part being an answer. The theme that Shakespeare has chosen is love and this theme works well with the sonnet format. The first half of this sonnet is written about how the subject is like a summer's day, for example: "Thou art more lovely and more temperate:" (line 2) and after line eight, Shakespeare concludes that the subject cannot be a summer's day because they are more beautiful and will last longer .....

Beowulf: Character Analysis
Number of words: 587 - Number of pages: 3

.... questioning, "Are you the Beowulf who competed with Breca...swollen with vanity..." So, while his cockiness was a flaw in the eyes of others, Beowulf saw it as self assurance and used it to his advantage. Beowulf also had a strong spirit of adventure. His spirit of adventure was part of the reason that Beowulf went to fight Grendel. Beowulf's strength and spirit of adventure had also led him to glory in many battles, including that with Grendel. Beowulf used his glory in previous battles to justify himself when coming to help Hrothgar. In addition, his s .....

My Interpretation Of Frost's "Birches"
Number of words: 871 - Number of pages: 4

.... compares this image to that of breaking glass and compares it to the "dome of heaven" shattering. I enjoy how he offers such different interpretations for the appearance of the bark. My personal favorite is the shattering of the dome in heaven. I think this creates a vivid image for the reader. He goes on to say that once the branches are bent, they never return completely upright again, but they are so flexible that they never break. “You may see their trunks arching in the woods/ Years afterwards, trailing their leaves on the ground." These are some of the .....

Poetry: Always And Forever
Number of words: 393 - Number of pages: 2

.... me and my love, Though both are simple I promise they are true. Even as I write this, I think of how to describe to you. Something I hardly understand, But I must tell you how I feel. So I close my eyes, And let my heart guide my hand. Perhaps the tears that falls from my eyes, Will show you my love and how much it means to me. To me our love is everything. I believe love will find it's way and show us the answers To the questions being revealed, I promise .....

The Book Of Exodus
Number of words: 1060 - Number of pages: 4

.... purpose in life. Moses was on a “mission from god” so to speak to deliver his people from bondage. His mission was similar to those of other typical epics. It was of course a very dangerous and exhausting journey that lasted a very long time. There were many obstacles to overcome as well as internal affairs among the Hebrews. Moses was born a Hebrew but was raised as the prince of Egypt. Just like Odysseus, Moses was a man of nobility. Moses did not know he was a Hebrew until he was a much older man. He was living a lie without even realizing it. .....

The Waste Land: Tiresias As Christ
Number of words: 544 - Number of pages: 2

.... Tiresias is able to use his other senses to see what is going on around him. He becomes an observer of everything around him. Tiresias is used in the poem as the observer of the typist and her young lover. He sees all of the hurt going on between the characters. Tiresias states that, "And I Tiresias have foresuffered all / Enacted on this same divan or bed (ll.243-244)." Tiresias seems most Christ like at this moment in the poem. According to Steven Helmling in The Grin of Tiresias: humor in the Waste Land, "Tiresias participates in the suffering he see .....

Number of words: 746 - Number of pages: 3

.... in such a way that it flows just as well on paper as it does on stage. She either writes in all capital letters or all lower case letters and never mixes them. This creates a style that she is personally known for. It sets her apart from other writers and makes her work original. None of the characters have names or any type of identity except for the color of their clothes. When the piece is done on stage the characters are never introduced they are just eventually recognized by the color of their dresses. This makes it a little difficult to follow fo .....

Number of words: 582 - Number of pages: 3

.... being around the antics on a Guy Falkes night bring back evil, unpleasant memories of war with people dying. Later in the poem we learn that the man's brother had dies in the war as the line reads : "I hear a corpse's sons -- 'Who's scared of bangers!' 'Uncle, John's afraid!' In the story the author uses a lot of comparisons, the first one we come across is between fireworks and "Curious cardboard buds" where he describes them as flowers that have yet to blossom and show their beauty. Again later in the same verse he describes the fireworks as .....
