Analysis of the Elegy, In Memory of W.B. Yeats - In his elegy, “In Memory of W.B. Yeats,” written in 1939, English poet W.H. Auden asserted that “poetry makes nothing happen.” He went on: “it survives / In the valley of its saying where executives / Would never want to tamper …” The studied ambiguity of Auden’s lines makes it possible to read his meaning in a variety of ways. Mourning the death of a fellow poet, Auden may be lamenting the ultimate futility of Yeats’ life and art (and by implication his own). What could be less relevant to the world of “executives” and meaningful action or social change than poetry....   [tags: W.H. Auden English Poetry]

Coetzee's In the Heart of the Country - Discuss race with reference to - In the Heart of the Country. - In accordance with the Oxford Dictionary ‘race’ is defined as being ‘each of the major divisions of humankind, having distinct physical characteristics.[1]’ Hence race became an important factor in postcolonial fiction because race was after all the most obvious indicator in all colonial situations. ‘While in the Eurocentric world, skin-colour carries an automatic cultural content, it nevertheless masks ‘true’ identity.

Cry, the Beloved Country by Alan Paton - “Africa” is not even an African word. There is no certainty as to where it originated from but it could be connected with the Latin word aprica, meaning “sunny,” or the Greek word aphrike, meaning “not cold.” It seems more likely that it came from the Greek word; “aphrike” is the combination of “phrike” (cold and horror) with an “a” placed in front to give it the opposite meaning. Therefore, it means a land free of cold and horror. It’s such an ironic name for a country where people are living their lives with hunger and fear....   [tags: Cry, The Beloved Country Essays] 793 words
