John Keats

... of medicine for poetry. Keats's first volume of poems was published in 1817. It attracted some good reviews, but these were followed by the first of several harsh attacks by the influential Blackwood's Magazine. Undeterred, he pressed on with his poem `Endymion', which was published in the spring of the following year. Keats toured the north of England and Scotland in the summer of 1818, returning home to nurse his brother Tom, who was ill with tuberculosis. After Tom's death in December he moved into a friend's house in Hampstead, now known as Keats House. There he met and fell deeply in love with a young ne ...

... the blood of an artery. The idea that a light is spurted out like blood is abstract and bizarre. In addition to that metaphor, Shapiro writes: "One hangs lanterns on the wrecks that cling Emptying husks of locusts, to iron poles." This rhythmical sentence paints a picture of locusts, grassÄ hopper like creatures, clinging to a luscious green jungle of grass. Yet symbolically this jungle is the twisted, black, and crisp auto wreck. This depiction of the auto wreck is extravag ant and almost unreal. Using metaphors, Shapiro portrays the fantasy-like auto wreck in which wildness is indispensable. ...

... finally are expressed, and each is surprised by what the other says. The husband speaks from the bottom of the stairs, she from a step just above the landing. Significantly, they don't come together on the architectural bridge and, when the poem concludes, readers are not assured that this marriage will regain the closeness it might have had prior to the child's death. The highly dramatic poem underscores the impact of loss and the need for communication or discussion of loss by those involved. When no reconciliation occurs, the loss intensifies to become destructive.In the poem “Home Burial”, Robert Frost ...

An Analysis Of Frost's The Road Not Taken

... the road that one chooses that makes him the man who he is. "And sorry I could not travel both..." It is always difficult to make a decision because it is impossible not to wonder about the opportunity cost, what will be missed out on. There is a strong sense of regret before the choice is even made and it lies in the knowledge that in one lifetime, it is impossible to travel down every path. In an attempt to make a decision, the traveler "looks down one as far as I could". The road that will be chosen leads to the unknown, as does any choice in life. As much he may strain his eyes to see as far the road s ...

Secret Lion: Analysis
[ view this term paper ]Words: 331 | Pages: 2

... Nature itself is not human. The third passage is a metaphor. A metaphor is a figure of speech that makes a comparison between two things that are basically not similar. The passage stated, "It was just perfect in the way it was that place, that whole going to that place, that whole junior high school lion." That meant going to that place was like a lion. That is what makes this passage a metaphor. The fourth passage is a simile. The passage said that everything had changed. That it had changed so fast like the tablecloths magicians pull from under stuff on the table but the gasp from the audience makes it not mat ...

... he had reasons." Both Simon and Robinson had unattainable dreams. This can be proven by the following quotes from the two poems. Robinson stated this idea by writing lines 9, 10, 25, and 26. These lines read as follows: "...Miniver sighed for what was not and dreamed, and rested from his labors...Miniver scorned the gold he sought but sore annoyed was he without it..." Simon expresses the same idea in lines 4, 8, and 9, "He had everything a man could want: power, grace, and style...And I wish I could be Richard Cory..." Robinson and Simon dealt with subjects that were close to their hearts. What they wrote a ...

... the words, they would see that the play is actually the lives of everybody in society. I say this because everyone has their own hopes like getting a good job, succeeding, having a family and ultimately dieing happily. Along with their hopes, everyone also has their personal fears. The characters of the poem are also some very meaningful keys in showing the hidden meaning. The first stanza describes the crowd that has gathered to watch the enactment of our human lives. Lines three and four states "an angel throng, bewinged, and bedight in veils, and drowned in tears." Poe is stating that a group of angels ...

... the pain in our hearts. In the lines "Why should the world be over-wise, In counting all our tears and signs?" (6-7) Dunber is telling us not to show feelings. Why bother others with our troubles? We sing, laugh, and smile even though we are hurting and "let the world dream otherwise" (14) to hide our suffering. "Richard Cory" is about a man that everyone in town admires. "When ever Richard Cory went down town, We people on the pavement looked at him: He was a gentlemen from sole to crown" (1-3). He stood out in a crowd because of his polished fashion. "And he was always quietly arrayed, and he was always human ...

A Valediction: Forbidding Mourning: Love Between Two People

... when he compares the impending separation of the lovers to death. The speaker compares his parting from his lover to the parting of the soul from a virtuous man at death. According to the speaker, “virtuous men pass mildly away” (line 1) because the virtue in their lives has assured them of glory and reward in the afterlife; hence, they die in peace without fear and emotion. He suggests that the separation of the lovers be like this separation caused by death. In the second stanza the speaker furthers his comparison for a peaceful separation. “So let us melt, and make no noise” (line 5) refers to the mel ...
