Differences In "Ode On Grecian Urn" And "Sailing To Byzantium"
Words: 528 / Pages: 2

.... this poem: "That is no country for old men. The young in one other arms, bids in the tree. Those dying generations of their song." (1,2,3) Imortality hit you in the face start off these lines. It talks about old becoming young and birds and trees. This makes you think of spring and vegetation and animals and life. Yates uses vivified examples such as "An Aged Man is but a patty thing, a tattered coat upon a stick." (9,10) Yates is describing a scarecrow or what you might call death. He also talks about a maniacal bird in lines thirty and thirty-one. This is something that isn't dying and will go on forever. These two images life and death help ins .....

Analysis Of The Poems Of William Wordsworth
Words: 2657 / Pages: 10

.... once again, the peacefulness of his life was disturbed by his father's death in 1783. William was sent from relative to relative, all of whom thought of him only as a burden. It has been pointed out by biographers that Wordsworth's unhappy early life contrasts with the idealized portrait of childhood that he presents in his writings (Wordsworth, William DISCovering). Wordsworth went to college at St. John's College in Cambridge and later wrote that the highlight of those years was his walking tour of France and Switzerland taken with his friend, Robert Jones (Watson 1421). He graduated in 1791 when the French revolution was in its third year, bu .....

Beginnings--The Idea
Words: 824 / Pages: 3

.... he mean that she's "thorny"? O my Luve's like the red, red rose, That's newly sprung in June Probably not! At least, if he's smart. So how is his beloved like a flower? The rose is relatively rare and delicate; it needs to be treated with care. Being "newly sprung" implies that, as a fresh bloom, the rose is young. So what do these traits have to do with his beloved? Maybe she's uncommon ("rare"). Maybe she should be treated with courtesy and gentleness. Maybe she's young, or young to love (innocent), or just new to him. So translating the images takes quite a bit of time and thought to figure out what meanings probably fit the poem's context .....

Poetry Analysis: “My Papa’s Waltz”
Words: 561 / Pages: 3

.... While there are many negative ideas in the poem, the next is when Roethke states, “At every step you missed / My right ear scraped a buckle” (11-12). This in fact shows that the little boy is being drug around by the drunken father. In this particular instance the boy is being hauled around, but the author compares it to a dance when you would “miss a step” and stumble. Roethke then states, “You beat time on my head”, as if he were keeping time for a dance or a rhythm on the boys head (13). This all enlarges the negativity and sadness of the poem. The small boy also states, “But I hung on like death” (3). This proves that the .....

Thanatopsis: An Analysis
Words: 318 / Pages: 2

.... example of this is when Bryant writes: ..."the oak shall send its roots abroad and pierce thy mold"(29-30). In the third and final section of this poem, Bryant writes that you will die along with kings and others. The reader should get the most out of living he/she can possibly get because it is good, and do not be afraid to die but go pleasantly. This is described in lines thirty-one through eighty. The best example of this is when Bryants writes: ..."approach thy grave like one who wraps the drapery of his coach about him and lies down to pleasant dreams"(79-80) This poem has taught the reader that death is not a bad thing. It is just a ti .....

Shakespeare's Sonnet 19
Words: 387 / Pages: 2

.... destructiveness as well. Each line offers a different image of Time at work: on the lion, the earth, the tiger, the phoenix-bird. Time is indiscriminate in its devouring. In the second quatrain, the lover grants to Time its own will: "And do whate'er thou wilt, swift-footed Time," acknowLedging priorly that in its fleet passage Time does "Make glad and sorry seasons. n For the first time one sees Time in other than a destructive capacity--in its cycLical change of seasons, some Time does "make glad" with blooming sweets. So the lover changes his epithet from devouring to swift-footed, certainly more neutral in tone. For now the lover makes his most a .....

Poem: I Guess It Was Not In Jane's Mind
Words: 204 / Pages: 1

.... return my favors in kind. When I gave her my ring, She said “Oh, you sweet thing!” All that for just one crummy line!! I guess it was not in Jane's mind, That her figure was so well defined. So she went to health clubs, For health food and back rubs, Now look; if you do, you'll go blind!! I guess it was not in Jane's mind, That her teeth were poorly aligned. The boys did not go near, For, her chops they did fear, Till she had her mouth re-designed. I guess it was not in Jane's mind, That a job she needed to find. When .....

Words: 186 / Pages: 1

.... average of 9 feet a line. The rhyme scheme is every last word in each stanza rhyme's. Some of the imagery is with sight and sound.

Ceremonies In "The Waste Land"
Words: 1243 / Pages: 5

.... (ll. 322-328). The imagery of a primal ceremony is evident in this passage. The last line of "He who was living is now dead" shows the passing of the primal ceremony; the connection to it that was once viable is now dead. The language used to describe the event is very rich and vivid: red, sweaty, stony. These words evoke an event that is without the cares of modern life- it is primal and hot. A couple of lines later Eliot talks of "red sullen faces sneer and snarl/ From doors of mudcracked houses" (ll. 344-345). These lines too seem to contain language that has a primal quality to it. From the primal roots of ceremony Eliot shows us .....

A Review Of Dudley Randall’s “Ballad Of Birmingham”
Words: 754 / Pages: 3

.... is Birmingham, Alabama, and it is 1963. It is important for the readers of this poem to consider the time period during which this poem was composed. In the South, especially in the 1960’ s, relations were not good between African Americans and whites. African Americans were often the target of hate crimes and prejudice. The theme of the poem is not directly stated, it is to be understood by its audience. The poem tells the story of a young girl who asks her mother if she can participate in a Freedom March on the streets of Birmingham. Her mother refuses to let her go due to the fact that there is a high risk that the march is potentially dang .....
