Words: 882 / Pages: 4

.... to a fresco of his former wife. He has a new appreciation for the work since her passing. He likes her better this way; in his complete control. 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 jo .....

Words: 616 / Pages: 3

.... often grow over time, the soul of this man, and the soul's of his ancestors and descendants, have grown/will grow deep with patience for a better time to come, and determination to go on until that time finally arrives. All things that have been experienced, all hard rains of troubled times, have added to his river, his soul, and helped make him who he is. Without these times, both the good and the bad, he would not possess the beauty of who he is, knowing the limits and possibilities of his body and soul. In "I, Too," Hughes portrays utmost assurance and serenity. He accepts the ways of today, but has faith in a change for tomorrow. He does no .....

Words: 1706 / Pages: 7

.... editions of Owen=s poems and the agendas of each editor.

Analysis Of Stephen Crane's "War Is Kind"
Words: 1323 / Pages: 5

.... Civil War praised Stephen Crane for his uncanny image, to envision and replicate the essence of actual combat.

His graphic description of a soldier shot from his mount in the first stanza shows his contempt for the acts of war .....

Andrew Marvell, "To His Coy Mistress"
Words: 376 / Pages: 2

.... in the second section's focus on lust (the loss of it in death) and the third section's focus on intercourse. The third section does contain the "philosophical" proposal that, as lovers, the couple will turn the tables on time, but it's not clear if this idea is, again, empty rhetoric. A variation on this interpretation is that the speaker wants not only sex, but also to develop the spiritual aspects of their relationship--the two go together.

From this perspective, the speaker's final proposal about the lovers' taking control o .....

Hardy says "...quaint and curious war shoot a fellow down you'd treat if met where any bar is..."

Ex: His best poetry is composed largely of representations of representations, meditations “on” objects or texts that are themselves reflections of other artists’ creative acts (Scott, xi).
