Musée des Beaux Arts by W. H. Auden - Suffering is embedded in our daily lives. There are devastating things going on in our daily environments and yet, people seldom realize this as they occupy themselves with other tasks. W.H. Auden’s, Musée des Beaux Arts, is a statement on human perceptions and how we use them to observe, or block out human suffering. While we are doing ordinary things like eating, or opening a window, bad things can be happening to others and it is as easy as looking up, to see what is actually going on. Auden illustrates societies’ indifference to human suffering through the form of his poem and by alluding to artwork that compares human perceptions and juxtaposes ordinary images with images of suffering a...   [tags: suffering, poem]

Role of Works of Art in Ode on a Grecian Urn and Musée des Beaux Arts - While differing in technique and subject matter, John Keats’ “Ode on a Grecian Urn” (1820) and W.H. Auden’s “Musée des Beaux Arts” (1940) demonstrate how using the rhetorical device of Ekphrasis in poetry helps to guide the reader to the central themes and messages of the poem. Both poems confront and explore the works of art differently: while Keats uses the rustic urn (in which scenes and myths are depicted upon it) to confront the nature as well as the limits of the world of art and fantasy; Auden uses Brueghel’s painting, The Fall of Icarus, in his second stanza to help reinforce the speaker’s comments (stated within the first stanza) on the apathy or indifference that seems to be presen...   [tags: ekphrasis, poetry, composition]

Comparing Museacutee des Beaux Arts and Life Cycle of Common Man - Comparing Musée des Beaux Arts and Life Cycle of Common Man "Musée des Beaux Arts" and "Life Cycle of Common Man" share a common theme, though the imagery they use to express it is quite different.  Both poems have the theme of life goes on or life stops for no one.  The difference in imagery is the difference between the general and the specific.  I believe that the theme of both poems lies in the same vein, but they take different paths to its development.  Auden speaks more about society in general; then, he gives an interpretation of a painting as an example.  On the other hand, Nemerov expresses the theme through the "life cycle" of one man, but is this one man--everyman?  The "they"...   [tags: comparison compare contrast essays] 1486 words

W.H. Auden's Musee des Beaux Arts and Pieter Bruegel's The Fall of Icarus - W.H. Auden's Musee des Beaux Arts and Pieter Bruegel's The Fall of Icarus W.H. Auden and Pieter Bruegel were both keen observers of the ordinary. In Bruegel’s painting “The Fall of Icarus”, he is able to look past the tragedy of the death of Icarus and focus on the simple scene surrounding the event. Auden’s poem, “Musee des Beaux Arts”, has the same qualities: it glazes over the nature of tragedy, and chooses to instead examine the fact that life goes on while disaster occurs. Arthur F. Kinney highlights this idea of calm in the face of tragedy in a critical essay entitled “Auden, Bruegel, and Musee des Beaux Arts”....   [tags: Auden Bruegel Icarus Arts human nature Essays]

A Deeper Look into Auden’s Poetry - In two of Auden’s major works he uses the idea of absent-mindedness to express how humans can be self-centered, and tend to have a blind eye towards other peoples’ issues rather than their own. In “Musée des Beaux Arts”, Auden uses a painting by Pieter Brueghel called, Landscape with the Fall of Icarus as a setting for his poem, and uses the characters in the painting as proof that people can be very self-absorbed and unaware. Auden also portrays this same idea in his poem “Funeral Blues”, in which he expresses the feelings of losing a loved one of extreme importance....   [tags: funeral, self-centered, witness] 859 words
