Sonnet Analysis - Golden Hair, Rosy Red Cheeks, and Pride - Sonnet Analysis - Golden Hair, Rosy Red Cheeks, and Pride      This sonnet is an anti-love poem that ironically shows how the fairness of a lady is contingent upon nature's blessings and her external manifestations.  The Spenserian style brings unity to this sonnet, in that it's theme and rhyme is interwoven throughout, but the focus of her "fairness" is divided into an octave and a sestet.  The first eight lines praise her physical features (hair, cheeks, smile), while the last six lines praise her internal features (words, spirit, heart).  This sonnet intentionally hides the speaker's ridicule behind counterfeit love-language, using phrases like: "fair golden hairs" (line 1), and "rose in her red cheeks" (line 3), and "her eyes the fire of love does spark" (line 4).  This traditional love language fills pages of literature and song, and has conventionally been used to praise the attributes of a lover; but this sonnet betrays such language by exhibiting a critique rather than commendation....   [tags: Sonnet essays] 1276 words

They argue that if the death penalty is not administered fairly, and especially administered with racial fairness, it must be abolished.   Nobody would even think of trying to apply this principle in a consistent way.

The Language of Male Supremacy in She and The Sign of Four - The Language of Male Supremacy in She and The Sign of Four These days we have to be extremely careful when we write or speak.  In fact, at times it seems as if we must communicate as if tip toeing through a veritable minefield of the dangerous misinterpretations of our words.  Since many words and phrases can be construed or misconstrued as offensive, there is a heightened sensitivity to the use of language.  This is not necessarily a bad thing.  We certainly need to live in world where all people are treated with dignity and respect, and our use of language should reflect this ideal.  Most of us would not intentionally offend a person from a different race, culture, or creed, but the problem today is that there is such a subsurface tension that rage occasionally erupts over anything that even remotely resembles the offensive.  Where does this social extremism that condemns even ambiguous statements come from?  Things were not always this way.  If we were to look deeper into the history of the English language, we would typically find outlandish words and phrases that debased women and members of other cultures.  These expressions may not necessarily have been malicious in spirit in all instances, but they were certainly demeaning and ranged from the subtle to the intentional.  Certainly, some of the phrases that were commonly printed then would be socially unacceptable to print today.  For example, any representative sample of late Victorian literature will reveal misogynistic and racist remarks by contemporary standards....   [tags: She Four] 1335 words
