Creating The Melancholic Tone In “The Raven”
Number of words: 1136 - Number of pages: 5

.... is Poe’s use of the first person. Poe used the first person by virtue of the situations in "The Raven" taking direct influence from Poe's life experiences. Among many other misfortunes, including living a life of poverty and being orphaned at a young age, Poe’s beloved wife Virginnia, died after a long illness. The narrator’s sorrow for the lost Lenore is paralleled with Poe’s own grief regarding the death of his wife. Confined in the chamber are memories of her who had frequented it. These ghostly recollections cultivate an enormous motive in the rea .....

Harwood's "Impromptu For Ann Jennings" And "Home Of Mercy"
Number of words: 1690 - Number of pages: 7

.... and joys of motherhood. The way Harwood presents to us the women in this poem are that through childbirth they have been bought closer together and have become emotionally stronger. There is no mention of the husband's in the poem which also leads the reader to believe that the women are independent and strong. The opening two stanzas are very reflective of their times together. "Sing, memory, sing those seasons in the freezing suburb of Fern Tree, a rock-shaded place with tree ferns, gullies, snowfalls and eye-pleasing prospects from paths along the mo .....

A Duke's Dominance Dooms Duchess
Number of words: 882 - Number of pages: 4

.... The designer was a monk who perfectly captured her heartfelt expression in but one day, showcasing her for all eternity. He directs his guest to look upon the painting. There is limited access to the art since the duke keeps it covered by a curtain, and only permits those to his liking to look at her. He states that in the past, those he has let see the fresco, have asked where such an expression on her puss originated. He goes on to admit that it was not him alone that provided her with such joy, but perhaps it was flattery from the monk that caused her .....

T. S. Eliot's "The Hollow Men"
Number of words: 1263 - Number of pages: 5

.... softness and to regard the poetic medium rather than the poet's personality as the important factor. Eliot saw in the French symbolists how image could be both absolutely precise in what it referred to physically and at the same time endlessly suggestive in the meanings it set up because of its relationship to other images. Eliot's real novelty was his deliberate elimination of all merely connective and transitional passages, his building up of the total pattern of meaning through the immediate comparison of images without overt explanation of what they a .....

Analysis Of The Poem "The Soldier" By Rupert Brooke
Number of words: 487 - Number of pages: 2

.... greatest of good. Images in "The Soldier" are extremely strong and persuading. One image is the line "Gave, once, her flowers to love, her ways to roam." This line evokes images of a beautiful woman cherishing and caressing the man who stands at her side. Another line is "Washed by the rivers, blest by suns of home." This line creates a feeling of tranquillity and a unity with nature. Another line that evokes a feeling of peace and happiness is, "Her sights and sounds; dreams happy as her day." Without such strong images, the poem would probably not have .....

Analysis Of WH Auden's Poem: Eternal Love
Number of words: 395 - Number of pages: 2

.... as the clocks' chime tells of the world that is powerless before time. To say that " vaguely life leaks away," the author is possibly attempting to covey that every moment lost cannot be retrieved, that every second that goes by is a second closer to the death of the body and to the death of love. The images of the frozen, cracked landscapes, and the crack in the teacup are examples of lost, passed time. The verdant valleys shall always be sheathed in snow, they cannot resist; and the teacup, once cracked, cannot be mended. All that is left is the memory of t .....

Criticism Of Keats' Melancholy
Number of words: 1902 - Number of pages: 7

.... articles helped me to understand “Melancholy” better. They also convinced me that Robert Burton had an influence on Keats’s poem. In Keats’s Ode on Melancholy, Gaillard explains that the original “Melancholy” was composed of four stanzas, the first of which Keats’s decided to remove before the poem was published. According to Gaillard, the original “stanza did survive in Brown’s transcripts, but many critics have made only passing references to it, avoiding discussion of the structure, language, theme and imagery of the poem as a full four-stanza work”(19). G .....

Beowulf: The Ultimate Hero
Number of words: 1771 - Number of pages: 7

.... bravest in his land to go help Hrothgar. Hrothgar was Beowulf's father's close friend who had been plagued by attacks for twelve years that threatened an entire kingdom. Beowulf did not have to offer Hrothgar's kingdom help, but does so because he wants to uses his God given strength to the best of his ability. As soon as Beowulf heard of the troubles in this land he set sail immediately. Beowulf continues to show his thankfulness by thanking God for giving them safe travel across the sea. Beowulf is lead to Hrothgar and offers him is "services." "-Now s .....
