Merry-Go-Round: Critical Analysis
Words: 646 / Pages: 3

.... in the last three stanzas. The tone of excitement is depicted by "the silent waiting merry-go-round invites" and by describing the riders as "eager" leaning in "intent, lips parted" with their "brief smiles float towards the watching crowd". The last three stanzas show the emphasised view of the cynical adult who is simply observing the children from a detached outside viewpoint. For example, "almost I see the marvel they see" is informing the reader that he is "almost" caught up in the enchantment as the children are. McAvley's clever use of diction and imagery add to the enchantment of the merry-go-round as the children see it as a magical fantasy .....

Sharpio's "Auto Wreck": The Theme Of Death
Words: 1076 / Pages: 4

.... places in the poem, the words can easily be taken literally to convey scenery or an emotion, but they can also be taken so as to make the reader think about 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 "win .....

"The Princess, The Knight, And The Dragon" By Malarkey - Poetry Analysis
Words: 347 / Pages: 2

.... is taken prisoner and eventually eaten, for if she had not been so eager to be courageous she would have run home and avoided being captured by Faggon. The princess is directly contrasted by the characters of the maid and the knight. Where the princess follows her code of noble action and is punished, the knight and maid undertake unchivalrous actions and are rewarded. Both the maid and knight follow the natural instinct that is ignored by Miranda. Faced with the same threat the maid and the knight both react in a logical manner. They see that there is little chance of being in any way triumphant over Faggon, and violate the code of nobility .....

Songs Of Innocence And Experience: An Analysis
Words: 536 / Pages: 2

.... hope of attaining a state of innocence. In Songs of Innocence Blake suggests that by recapturing the imagination and wonderment of childhood, we could achieve the goal of self-awareness... the poems are presented from the views of the world as filtered through the eyes and mind of a child. It can also be inferred that evil can bring forth the loss of innocence. Therefore, one existing similarity is that they both concern the loss of innocence. Of his most well known poems are “The Lamb” from Songs of Innocence, and “The Tyger”, from Songs of Experience. Both poems contain many similarities according to their themes. "The Lamb" is an emblem o .....

A Critical Analysis Of The Poem Entitled "Tract" By William Carlos Williams
Words: 1984 / Pages: 8

.... rollers and small easy wheels on the bottom- my townspeople what are you thinking of? A rough plain hearse then with gilt wheels and no top at all. On 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 dragg .....

The Poetry Of John Keats
Words: 1473 / Pages: 6

.... Ode to a Nightingale, it is the ideal beauty of the Nightingale's song - as permanent as nature itself - in the Ode on a Grecian Urn, it is the perfection of beauty as art - transfixed and transfigured forever in the Grecian Urn - and in the Ode to Autumn it is the exquisiteness of the season - idealised and immortalised as part of the natural cycle - which symbolise eternal and idealistic images of profound beauty. In Ode to a Nightingale, Keats uses the central symbol of a bird to exemplify the perfect beauty in nature. The nightingale sings to the poet's senses whose ardour for it's song makes the bird eternal and thus reminds him of how .....

The Lost Trees
Words: 485 / Pages: 2

.... of how lengthy their recovery time can take. They listen incredulously to mans' promises that he will not make this deadly mistake again, but worry he is too weak to honor their promises. Levertov is implying there should be harmony between man and nature and the nature of how mankind conducts itself can have long-range effects on the course of nature. For example, we now know how the destruction of the rain forest in South America is affecting the percentage of oxygen available around the globe. Man's wholesale destruction of these areas for financial gain, despite the negative results, is a study of the nature of man's inhumanity to man. .....

Haughton: Am I A Gryphon Or A Queen?
Words: 700 / Pages: 3

.... they get out of reading a book. I would think not much. Then as Mr. Haughton says there are of course those types of people, who wish to enjoy the story for what it is, not trying to put too much interpretation into it. To them, I guess the interpretation of the story ruins the effect thus dulling the whole thing. And let’s not forget Mr. Haughton's Queens, the type who like to sit down and analyze the complete meaning of a book, ripping it apart page by page until they come into this complete feeling of self-actualization. Anyway, there are so many more types of reading styles out there, so many combinations. So the answer to the question a .....

"A Dream Within A Dream"
Words: 503 / Pages: 2

.... died of tuberculosis, he lost everything. He felt as though he had no control in his life. . . . I hold within my hand Grains of golden sand- . . . they creep through my fingers . . . O God! Can I not grasp Them with a tighter clasp? In the first stanza of his poem, Poe is speaking to a person who has seen him through some rough times. He is trying to convince her as well as himself that his life has not changed through the years. He questions the realness and significance of the everyday events of life and finally concludes that they are unimportant and superficial. "All that we see or seem is but a dream within a dream." The second stanz .....

A Critical Analysis Of "The Parting" By Michael Drayton
Words: 861 / Pages: 4

.... version of his feelings. Often, he has to sum up in one line of the poem what he would normally have written a paragraph or more on. For example, "Shake hands forever, cancle all our vows" sums up very concisely the idea of the break being forever, with no possibility of a reconciliation, whilst also adding to the ease of understanding and therefore also to the meaning of the poem. Another constraint of the sonnet is the length of the lines themselves. In a sonnet, the rythem is always iambic pentameter, which means that there must always be ten syllables per line, with each second syllable being stressed. Where the author breaks this pattern, .....
