Releasing the Moment in Clampitt’s Poem Fog - The photographer sights, clicks, stops; the moment is captured; the vision settles. The poet sights, clicks, begins; the moment is released; the vision starts. Tess Gallagher says, "the poem is always the enemy of the photograph." The art of poetry demands more than external vision; a poem takes the reader outside and inside to see, hear, touch, and feel every detail. In Amy Clampitt’s poem "Fog," she immerses the reader’s senses in the entirety of the moment’s external grace and its secret inner core....   [tags: Clampitt Fog Essays] 698 words

He has been the ruler for 41 years, he is not going down without a fight and the coalition has to be prepared for that. If these factors are properly addressed than that is a huge advantage on behalf of the coalition. McNamara’s fifth lesson centered around proportionality. Proportionality, in a general context, is defined as a body not taking any more action that exceeds what is necessary to achieve its objective. According to McNamara himself, the way to go about this is to make sure at all times you are engaging in a “Just War.” “The human race will not eliminate war in this century, but we can reduce the brutality of war, the level of killing, by adhering to the principles of a ‘Just War’.” McNamara went on to add the principle of proportionality is key to a Just War....   [tags: Literary Analysis ]

Portrayal of London in the Opening of Bleak House - The first paragraph of Bleak House alone gives the reader an instant idea of how Charles Dickens saw London to be around 1842. He has portrayed the streets to be muddy and extremely polluted, "As much mud in the streets as if the waters had but newly retired from the face of the earth." Here Dickens has used a slight amount of Hyperbole to emphasize his point. He also uses personification when referring to the snow flakes, saying that they have gone into mourning, ?smoke lowering down from the chimneypots, making a soft black drizzle, with flakes of soot in it as big as full-grown snowflakes?gone into mourning, one might imagine, for the death of the sun.....   [tags: essays research papers] 799 words

Plato's reference to `poetry' does not apply to the poetry of contemporary society, as it was a performance art and not meant for silent reading and reflection.

Symbols and Symbolism in Long Day's Journey into Night -   Symbolism is used throughout O¹Neill¹s Long Day¹s Journey into Night, a portrayal of the  author¹s life.  The three prominent symbols, the fog, the foghorn, and Mary¹s glasses, represent the characters¹ isolation from reality.  The symbols in ³Long Day¹s Journey into  Night² are used to substitute illusion for reality.  Although Mary is the character directly associated with living in illusion, all characters in the play try to hide from the truth in their own ways. At the beginning of the second act, O'Neill notes a change in setting which has taken place since the play opened.  No sunlight comes into the room now  and there is a faint haziness in the air.  This haziness or fog obscures one¹s perception  of the world, and it parallels the attempts of each member of the family to obscure or hide reality.  Tyrone, for example, drinks whiskey to escape his son¹s criticism of how cheap he is.  The reference to fog always has a double meaning in this play,  referring both to the atmosphere and to the family.  Much of the activity carried on by the Tyrone family is under-handed and sneaky, they are always attempting to put something over on somebody  and obscure the truth....   [tags: Long Day's Journey into Night] 659 words

Essays on The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock:Tthe Missing Female - The Missing Female in The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock For Eliot, poetic representation of a powerful female presence created difficulty in embodying the male. In order to do so, Eliot avoids envisioning the female, indeed, avoids attaching gender to bodies.  We can see this process clearly in "The Love Song of J. Prufrock." The poem circles around not only an unarticulated question, as all readers agree, but also an unenvisioned center, the "one" whom Prufrock addresses. The poem never visualizes the woman with whom Prufrock imagines an encounter except in fragments and in plurals -- eyes, arms, skirts - synecdoches we might well imagine as fetishistic replacements....   [tags: Love Song J.

Elisa’s Unhappiness in The Chrysanthemums by John Steinbeck - John Steinbeck’s short story “The Chrysanthemums” centers on Eliza and her relationship with her husband Henry. Critic Gregory Palmerino brings light to their relationship issues. He argues: “everywhere there is conflict in ‘The Chrysanthemums,’ but nowhere is there a fight. This absence of friction prevents Henry and Elisa’s relationship from progressing, whether it be as lovers, partners or parents” (Palmerino 1). What Palmerino does not focus on is where these deep-rooted communications stem from....   [tags: The Chrysanthemums 2014]

Comparing Story Openings of Bleak House by Charles Dickens to The Outsider by Albert Camus - At the opening of the story 'The Outsider', the writer Albert Camus places time in the wrong order. This creates the impression that we are seeing into the character's thoughts rather than a story being told to us. It works very effectively as the paragraphs are spontaneous and not in any form of order, thus creating a mental picture in our heads of one or two day?s worth of events, as if we were remembering them ourselves. This, however, does not apply to Bleak house. Dickens does not use any form of time, but instead decides to describe what is happening and makes the days, time, week or month irrelevant....   [tags: essays research papers] 952 words

They believed it was “wrong” to be sent to their deaths. Sadly, no one realizes a person’s significance until they die.

Theme of Control in "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest" and "Brave New World" - One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest by Ken Kesey and Brave New World by Aldous Huxley both deal with enclosed cultures tightly controlled by an authority. Cuckoo’s Nest takes place in a psychiatric ward ruled by the ‘Big Nurse’ while Brave New World encompasses a wider society governed by the World State. Both societies function because dissent is prohibited. In each community an outsider appears who attempts to disrupt the control by exerting his free will.

This is only strengthened with the argument that “war is an instrument of policy,”(Clausewitz). It is with the government’s intentions that war is even fought at all. All three of these forces interact with each other and must find a balance for a success of a war. Looking back into history, one can find the “trinity” working into collaboration with Serbia and the Bosnian War. The break-up of Yugoslavia was motivated by politicians to find a new basis of legitimacy for their continuance in power, the government and the rational force....   [tags: Biography ]

One such parallel is the scene in which McMurphy takes twelve of the ward’s patients out of the hospital for a life-changing fishing trip. This scene is an intentional allusion to the famous fishing-trip parable of Christ and his twelve disciples (Sherman 190). McMurphy even acts as a peacemaker and a teacher on the boat, resolving conflict between the other patients and sharing with them his knowledge of fishing and boating techniques, as well as some less obvious life lessons....   [tags: Character Analysis ]

She vicariously is demonstrating her nurturing ability when creating these gigantically, beautiful chrysanthemums and transplanting sprouts. The innate nurturing characteristic of Elisa can also be another example of the stereotypical ideology of women in the 1930’s.
