John Donne's The Sun Rising - John Donne's "The Sun Rising" In his poem, "The Sun Rising," Donne immerses the reader into his transmuted reality with an apostrophe to the "busy old fool, unruly sun" that "through curtains" calls upon him, seizing him from the bliss which "no season knows." This bliss, a passionate love, stimulates him to reinvent reality within the confines of his own mind, a wishful thinking from which he does not readily depart, much like a sleepy child clings to the consequences of a dream. In his address to the sun, he bids "the saucy, pedantic wretch" "go chide late schoolboys, and sour prentices," resembling a petulant youth imploring for more time to slumber....   [tags: Sun Rising Essays] 451 words

John Donne's The Sun Rising - John Donne's The Sun Rising Critics of John Donne's "The Sun Rising" often note that the poem's displacement of the outside world in favor of two lovers' inner world serves to support its overall theme: the centrality of human love amidst a permanent physical universe.

Hence the microcosmic world of love becomes larger and more important than the macrocosm" (135)....   [tags: Donne Sun Rising Essays]

The Rising Sun and Death be not Proud by John Donne - ... He extends this metaphor throughout the poem. In the second last line of the poem he says to death: “One short sleepe past, wee wake eternally.” (13). Line 13 completely defeats the purpose of death; it even redefines the word.

Climate Change and Rising Cancer Rates - How does climate change increase people’s probabilities of developing cancer. Global warming, a rise in the average global temperature, is a form of climate change that has caused glaciers to melt, acid rain to form, and sea levels to rise killing both vegetation and animals.

The Significance of Gender Roles in Shakespeare's The Taming of the Shrew and Lorraine Hansberry's A Raisin in the Sun - Gender roles are undeniably a fundamental topic of critique in literature, particularly since expected gender roles have evolved in recent years. More importantly, the transcendence of these gender expectations indicates the possibility for transformation and increasing liberation in society. History explores many different stages for the sexes and their respective roles, from traditional anti-feminist times in which certain roles were strictly enforced, to more modern beliefs entailing free will and a lack of restrictions....   [tags: Literary Comparison, Analytical Essay]

Fitzgerald and Hemingway: The Lost Generation of American Writers and what They Lost - Following World War I, American society enjoyed high levels of prosperity during the "roaring" 1920s as the economy soared. At the same time, Prohibition made bootleggers rich and led to an increase in organized crime. During the 1920s a group of American writers were able to be recognized as the lost generation. The term "Lost Generation" was originally coined in a conversation by Gertrude Stein, a member of the expatriate circle in 1920's Paris. These men went off to fight in World War One, and returned home to find that things have changed....   [tags: 1920's, World War I, Sun Also Rises] 618 words

Mind the Sun in William Faulkner's A Rose for Emily - The beast in a human is subdued by our milquetoast delusions, we are animals of compulsion and repetition. It seems to me the point of art is to explore the idea of humanity as a whole, mankind’s view of itself and the artist’s own concept of humanity. William Faulkner is one such artist who delves deeper into his own ideals, almost breaching the membrane of technicalities before exploiting them on an atomic level, too close to see everything the writer aimed for. His story A Rose for Emily, despite it’s macabre subject, persists as a tremendous exemplification of how the happenings found in the story’s subjects and in reality adhere to the essences of humanity....   [tags: nobel prize, journey, crime]

A Raisin in the Sun, by Lorraine Hansberry - A Raisin in the Sun, by Lorraine Hansberry, has often been dubbed a “black” play by critics since its debut on Broadway in 1959. This label has been reasonably assigned considering the play has a cast that consists primarily of African American actors; however, when looking beyond the surface of this play and the color of the author and characters, one can see that A Raisin in the Sun actually transcends the boundaries of racial labels through the universal personalities assigned to each character and the realistic family situations that continue to evolve throughout the storyline....   [tags: A Raisin in the Sun, Lorraine Hansberry]

Power and Authority in "A Raisin in the Sun" - As I have written about over the last few months: A Raisin in the Sun is a play of many themes. Besides the central idea of the blacks trying to get out of the ghetto, it has many side plots. One of the most predominant of these side-plots is the role and effects of power and authority. In general, most people strive for power and control, whether they can handle it or not. Humans don’t like to be subservient to one another. The same idea applies in the play as well.

Michael Joseph O’Rahilly and the 1916 Easter Rising in Ireland - The role of Michael Joseph O’Rahilly (also known as “The O’Rahilly”) in the Easter Rising of 1916, is not much talked about, and this, in my opinion, makes it all the more fascinating. Many would feel, that he has, in a sense, been ‘written out of history’. O’Rahilly was a man who believed that the Irish people could not achieve independence of the British without confrontation in an armed struggle. It was for this reason that he joined played a large part in the foundation of the Irish Volunteers in 1913....   [tags: Michael Joseph O’Rahilly,1916, Easter Rising, Irel] 1719 words

Stereotypes and Identity in Lorraine Hansberry’s A Raisin in the Sun - In Langston Hughes’ poem “Harlem,” he discusses the idea of unfulfilled dreams and their plausible outcomes using symbolism and imagery. He initially describes a “deferred” dream as a sun-dried raisin, depicting the dream originally as a fresh grape that now has dried up and “turned black” (Jemie 63). This idea provides Lorraine Hansberry’s play A Raisin in the Sun with its basic foundation, for it is a play about a house full of unfulfilled dreams. As the poem goes on, Hughes depicts the idea of a deferred dream as something rotten or gone bad....   [tags: A Raisin in the Sun]

Raisin in the Sun Essay: A Dream Deferred - Dream Deferred in A Raisin in the Sun      "What happens to a dream deferred?" (l. 1) Langston Hughes asks in his 1959 poem "Dream Deferred." He suggests that it might "dry up like a raisin in the sun" (ll. 2-3) or "stink like rotten meat" (l. 6); however, at the end of the poem, Hughes offers another alternative by asking, "Or does it explode?" (l. 11). This is the view Lorraine Hansberry supports in her 1959 play A Raisin in the Sun. The drama opens with Walter reading, "Set off another bomb yesterday" (1831), from the front page of the morning newspaper; however, he is unaware that bombs will soon detonate inside his own house....   [tags: Raisin Sun essays]

Comparing the Plays, A Raisin in the Sun and Death of a Salesman - In history there have been an uncountable amount of plays made, but there have only been two that fully captured the American dream like A Raisin in the sun and Death of a Salesman. In both plays the protagonist is trying to achieve the American dream, but it is near impossible when neither of them has the respect of their superiors or the people around them. It is amazing that two different plays can so closely parallel each other when they have a time gap of over 10 years. Both Miller and Lorraine created a theme of achieving goals, Willy Loman just wanted to earn the respect of the people around him while Walter Younger wanted to get rich quick and support his family....   [tags: A Raisin in the Sun, Death of a Salesman] 911 words

Dreams Deferred in Lorraine Hansberry’s A Raisin in the Sun - Lorraine Hansberry’s classic play, A Raisin in the Sun, culls its title from the infamous poem “Dream Deferred” by Langston Hughes, and both works discuss what happens to a person when their dreams -- their hopes, their aspirations, their lives -- are endlessly put on hold. For this analysis of the dreams and character of Beneatha Younger in Raisin, I would like to pull on another dreamy poem of Langston Hughes’ entitled “Dream Boogie.” Like all the characters in the play, Beneatha has dreams that are dear to her, but their deferment does not cause them to dry up, fester, rot, crust, sag, or explode....   [tags: A Raisin in the Sun Essays] 721 words
