Samuel Coleridge's "Frost At Midnight"
Words: 356 / Pages: 2

.... about a certain day in school, when he was fairly young, "How oft, at school, with most believing mind…have I gazed upon the bars." At first, it appears he was very happy, "So sweetly, that they stirred and haunted me with a wild pleasure…" But as this paragraph progresses, he begins to show the loneliness in his life, "For still I hoped to see the stranger's face." Though his mood begins to change there still is a calm and somber feeling. In paragraph three, Colridge is holding his son, while appreciating nature and what it will give to his child, "it thrills my heart with tender gladness, thus to look at thee, and think that thou sha .....

Critical Analysis Of "The Indifferent" By John Donne
Words: 1136 / Pages: 5

.... and that 'Love's sweetest part' is 'variety'" (Cruttwell 153). The first two stanzas of the poem seem to be the speaker talking to an audience of people, w hile the last one looks back and refers to the first two stanzas as a "song." The audience to which this poem was intended is very important because it can drastically change the meaning of the poem, and has therefore been debated among the critics. While most critics believe that the audience changes from men, to women, then to a single woman, or something along those lines, Gregory Machacek believes that the audience remains throughout the poem as "two women who have discovered that th .....

Marvell's "To His Coy Mistress": The Essence Of Time
Words: 384 / Pages: 2

.... on her emotions of how sweet the opportunity to make love to her would be. Marvell tells his mistress that the act would be almost animalistic and intense. Throughout the poem, he uses the phases of time in an attempt to frighten her into having sex with him. All three stanza's in the poem represent a different time frame. The first gives his mistress a feeling of unconditional love. He leads her to believe he would give all he has to her as long as time will permit. During the second stanza, Marvell plays on her fear of getting old. He warns her that her beauty isn't everlasting and that she will end up unhappy alone if she doesn't .....

A Critical Analysis Of Tension's In Memorial A. H. H.
Words: 1631 / Pages: 6

.... defied the Old Testament version of creation (Ford & Christ 897). God seemed to be dissolving before a panicked England's very eyes, replaced by the vision of a cold, mechanistic universe that cared little for our existence. Alfred, Lord Tennyson was painfully aware of the implications of such a universe, and he struggled with his own doubts about the existence of God. We glimpse much of his struggles in the poem In Memorial A. H. H., written in memory of his deceased friend, Arthur Hallam. The poem seemed to be cathartic for Tennyson, for through its writing he not only found an outlet for his grief over Hallam's death, but also managed to reg .....

The Plight Of The Toads: An Analysis
Words: 1527 / Pages: 6

.... it warts or more precisely the myth that those "uglies" are contagious. When this interpretation is used the poet is saying that work is a ugly and repulsive entity, and its ugliness is contagious. A second interpretation of the word toad can be found from fairy tales. In these types of works the toad is often seen as something detestable on the exterior and yet of great value or beauty on the interior. An example of this is the toad that when kissed by the princess was turned into a prince. In order for the real identity of this amphibian to be realized, one must to get past the outer shell. In keeping with this explanation Larkin can also be .....

Analysis Of Plath's "Daddy"
Words: 568 / Pages: 3

.... and also repeats herself quite often. The last two stanzas of the poem, especially, portray a dismal picture of life for women who find themselves under a dominating male figure. The passage seems to show that the speaker has reached a resolution after being kept under a man’s thumb all her life. In lines 71-80 the speaker compares her father and her husband to vampires saying how they betrayed her and drank her blood--sucking her dry of life. She tells her father to give up and be done, to lie back" (line 75) and in line 80, she says, "Daddy, daddy, you bastard, Plath’s attitude towards men is expressed in this passage through her imagery of th .....

Shelley's "Ode To The West Wind": Analysis
Words: 1450 / Pages: 6

.... (1). He quickly introduces the theme of death and compares the dead leaves to "ghosts" (3). The imagery of "Pestilence-stricken multitudes" makes the reader aware that Shelley is addressing more than a pile of leaves. His claustrophobic mood becomes evident when he talks of the "wintry bed" (6) and "The winged seeds, where they lie cold and low/ Each like a corpse within its grave, until/ Thine azure sister of the Spring shall blow" (7-9). In the first line, Shelley use the phrase "winged seeds" which presents images of flying and freedom. The only problem is that they lay "cold and low" or unnourished or not elevated. He likens this with a feel .....

Poe's Literary Vengence
Words: 1277 / Pages: 5

.... but when he ventured upon insult I vowed revenge" (149). This line reflects Poe's despise of his estranging stepfather John Allan. This estrangement forced Poe to make decisions about his life that he would not have had to consider at such and early age. Fortunato was a wealthy man who was admired in his community. I feel that is how Poe relates Forutnato to his step- father. Martha Womack quotes from Kenneth Silverman's book Edgar A. Poe: A Never-Ending Remembrance. "Allan much resembled Fortunato being a rich man, respected, admired, beloved, interested in the wines, and a member of the Masons." Womack goes on to quote from Silverman's .....

Poem: My Heart Aches
Words: 368 / Pages: 2

.... quite forget What thou among the leaves hast never known, The wearinessm the feverm and the fret Here, where men sit and hear each other groan; Where palsy shakes a few, sad, last gray hairs, Where youth grows pale and spacter--thin, and dies; Where but to think is to be full of sorrow And leaden-eyed despairs, Where Beauty cannot keep her lustrous eyes Or new Love pine at them beyond tomorrow. Away! Away! for I will fly to thee, Not charioted by Becchus and his pards, But on the viewless wings of poesy, Though the dull brain perplexes and retards: Already with thee! tender is the night, And haply the Queen-Moon is on her throne, Clustered around by .....

Mother And Child In Sylvia Plath Poems
Words: 2030 / Pages: 8

.... and seven both seem to have a particular significance in life. There are triunes in religion, (Father, Son, Holy Spirit,) science (energy, matter, ether,) spiritualism (mind, body, spirit,) and psychiatry (superconscious, conscious, subconscious) to name but a few, while nine is the number of months in a human pregnancy (divided into three trimesters). Sevens also occur frequently: there are seven cardinal virtues; seven deadly sins; seven ages of man; seven days in a week and seven seals in the book of revelation. Although the range of emotions is spread between the poems, they do seem to follow a linear course as the sequence progresses. You’re b .....
