Why is Tuberculosis Coming Back with a Vengeance? - Once believed to be easily treated and prevented, Tuberculosis (TB) has recently been making a steady comeback. Previous to modern medicine, TB claimed millions of victims, spreading from person to person like wildfire.

However, as technological advances progressed, this seemingly ferocious viral disease became a primal, insignificant thing of the past.

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]
