T.S. Eliot, The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock Very few of us are unfamiliar with the Genesis account of creation, where it is written that "God said, 'Let there be light,' and there was light."

Love in Pre-1914 Poetry - Love in Pre-1914 Poetry Compare and contrast the ways in which writers’ present ideas about love in a selection of pre-1914 poetry Poetry is usually used to convey strong feelings and emotions which may be difficult to express in any other form. Poems are especially good at portraying feelings of love because they have set rhythms which can flow better than ordinary speech; poetry can also be good at expressing anger as the rhythms are capable of being very harsh. From times pre-dating the Tudors, poetry has been used by men to win the affections of their prospective mistresses because, by using verse, they could show emotion without embarrassment....   [tags: Poetry Poems Love Emotions Essays] 2564 words

Dependency of Love - Love is the ubiquitous force that drives all people in life. If people did not want, give, or receive love, they would never experience life because it is the force that completes a person. People rely on this seemingly absent force although it is ever-present. Elizabeth Barrett Browning is an influential poet who describes the necessity of love in her poems from her book Sonnets from the Portuguese. She writes about love based on her relationship with her husband. Her life is dependent on him, and she expresses this same reliance of love in her poetry....   [tags: power, love, poetry, Elizabeth Barrett Browning]

First Love by John Clare - First Love by John Clare How do different poets convey the idea of Love. “First Love” by John Clare was written in the 19th century. It is a poem about how the poet had fallen in love but it turned out it was unrequited. Whereas “Song” by W.H.Auden written in the 20th century, is a poem about how someone has been in love but then lost them to death. They are both quite similar in the fact that they are both about loving someone but not being able to have them. However they are different because “Song” is about two people having been in love and then losing it, rather than “First Love” in which the love is unrequited, and not being fulfilled....   [tags: First Love John Clare Poems Poetry Essays] 2220 words

How To Write A Song - How To Write A Song Want to write a song to call your own. I imagine most would love the opportunity. All you really need is a little knowledge playing a guitar or piano, a voice that can sing relatively in key, and a touch of imagination spliced with creativity. Depending on someone’s personality, interests and experiences the type of song, how it is sung, what is sung, and how it is played can vary greatly. Writing the song can be easy enough if you have the skills and some patience. To start your creation, sit down with your guitar or piano, a pen, a piece of paper, and an open mind....   [tags: essays papers]

An Explication of The Garden of Love - An Explication of The Garden of Love       My original interpretation of "The Garden of Love" encompassed the speaker as a person who was scared to move on in their life and in love. I thought (he) was afraid of failure, afraid of losing childhood innocence in the wake of adulthood decisions and expectations. I funneled my theory into a neat little package that contained the Chapel as a symbol for marriage (or adult themes), and the Garden to stand for his life, or thoughts. I further belabored my opinion and interpretation....   [tags: Garden of Love Essays]

William Blake and The Garden of Love - William Blake and The Garden of Love   At first glance, the poetry of William Blake may appear simplistic; he writes most often in regular metrical rhythm, apparently sticking to the rules, blunt observations on such mundane subjects as tigers, lambs and roses.  But if one were to finish with Blake and move on, left with only these initial impressions, it would be a great pity; true enjoyment of this poet can only come about through some understanding of his life, background, and skill in the manipulation of the tool of simple lyrical poetry, to convey deeper meaning....   [tags: Garden of Love Essays] 1516 words

Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho - An Analysis of the Opening Sequence from Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho Just like a building, a film needs a strong foundation in order to be successful, a foundation which is made up of the starting moments of the film. In Psycho, Alfred Hitchcock successfully uses the opening credit sequence to establish a foundation on which to build an interesting plot, including techniques to elicit involvement by the spectator, and the suggestion of a "Psycho" theme. A musical composition consisting of quick strokes on tightly wound violins, later used in the famous shower scene, starts to play at the beginning of the sequence....   [tags: Film Movies] 1311 words

This story is showing how a person crushed his life somehow. My guess would be he had his heart broken and felt trapped in depression. In the beginning he talks about the scenery and how beautiful it is but he can’t get out to go where everything is ok in Camelot.

How To Analyze Poetry - Poetry is a compact language that expresses complex feelings. To understand the multiple meanings of a poem, readers must examine its words and phrasing from the perspectives of rhythm, sound, images, obvious meaning, and implied meaning. Readers then need to organize responses to the verse into a logical, point-by-point explanation. A good beginning involves asking questions that apply to most poetry. The Context of the Poem Clear answers to the following questions can help establish the context of a poem and form the foundation of understanding: -Who wrote the poem....   [tags: Instructional Poem Poetry Analysis] 1939 words

The Worries Of Aging - T. S. Eliot's poem 'The love song of J. Alfred Prufrock'; is quite a lengthy poem for the novice poetry reader, which consists of some 130 lines. Yet, it is the poem's mass that enables the rookie to discern the theme at length. In the beginning and later towards the ending of the poem, the narrator seems to be daydreaming, using a lot of imagery to portray fun or pretty places of solitude, which makes the stanzas ambiguous. In the center of the poem the narrator describes his human feelings towards the surrounding people and objects; here is where a logical connection can be grasped....   [tags: essays research papers] 862 words

Love´s True Reply - Love's True Reply There are many notions of love and perhaps numerous discerning views of the role that courtship plays between a man and women. The fact remains true: love like all emotions is directly tied to time, the passage of time and its effects on the given situation. The idea that the “courtier”, most often the active male, and the “courted”, or notably the passive female, represents a structure of power so prominent in traditional roles of courtship. This noted relationship between man and woman, can be seen in the poetic exchanges between Christopher Marlowe's, The Passionate Shepard to his Love and Sir Walter Ralegh's, The Nymph's Reply to the Shepherd....   [tags: what is love?] 766 words

Forever Spiritually Persistant - Forever Spiritually Persistant The structure of Preludes is governed by the notion of time and is experienced through the observation of the conscious but actionless individual. This ever advancing element of time suggests a journey of sorts, perhaps of spirituality or spiritual degradation. Similar to The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock, Preludes is a conscious journey through a world of torturous repetition, though unconcerned with topics of Michelangelo. This contrast of high and low ranking society between the two works suggests a common ground of spiritual decay, regardless of the classes....   [tags: Papers] 743 words

Understanding Modernist Writing - Around 1906, modernist writing was used, but did not yet have a name. James Joyce was the first person to write in a modernist way. It was not until later that the name modernism was established. It was mainly involved with language and how it is used. Modernism is known as a result of the struggle families went through during a certain period of time. Many other authors use modernism in a similar way. To fully understand modernist poetry, a definition and a break down is needed. Modernism is better known as a reflection of historical events....   [tags: essays research papers] 1293 words
