In Search of Lost Perspective - Often in Rainer Maria Rilke’s poetry (of which four poems shall henceforth be examined), the speaker discusses the other, some existence far removed from the typical experience by a lack of humanness, or simply a minority perspective. Yet the speaker does not presume to take this outside perspective onto himself; rather, he emphasizes its extraneous nature. Through this emphasis, he points out and challenges the audience’s assumptions about the typicality of their own reality, namely, the subconscious associations between their everyday lives and the concept of ‘the everyday.’ By relating the perspectives of such beings as panthers or those perished too soon, Rilke’s speakers force the audi...   [tags: Literary Analysis, Maria Rilke] 1526 words

The Futility of War: an Analysis of Erich Maria Remarque’s All Quiet on the Western - Front Stories of wars and the resulting victories are usually told in highly embellished narratives that seek to cover the grim realities of war as much as they aim to whip up popular emotion in order to ensure support for any future wars among the masses. However, war, by its very nature, is neither desirable nor its outcome praiseworthy. Erich Maria Remarque’s All Quiet on the Western Front lays bare the gritty, gruesome and ultimately self-defeating nature of wars. As Paul Baumer and his soldier comrades enlist and join the Germany Army in order to defeat the enemy, they themselves are slowly vanquished, first psychologically and finally physically through death....   [tags: Literary Analysis ]
