Tennyson's In Memoriam - Tennyson's In Memoriam In Memoriam is an elegy to Tennyson's friend Arthur Hallam, but bears the hallmark of its mid nineteenth century context, 'the locus classicus of the science-and-religion debate.'Upon reflection, Hallam's tragic death has proved to be an event that provoked Tennyson's embarkation upon a much more ambitious poetic project than conventional Miltonian elegy, involving meditation upon the profoundest questions faced by mankind.

Stages of Greif in Memorium A.H.H. by Arthur Henry Hallum - It is something that all suffer through. It is something that many question. It is one of the hardest things to understand and bear.

Lord Tennyson, for example, dealt with the death of his beloved friend, Arthur Henry Hallam, in various stages, which he expressed in his poem In Memoriam A.H.H. When Hallam, Tennyson’s closest friend, died suddenly at the age of twenty-two, Tennyson felt as if his life had been crushed right before his eyes (Robson, Christ 1189)....   [tags: death, poem, denial]

The Washington Memorial and its Reconstruction - The Washington Monument was built between 1848 and 1884 as a tribute to George Washington's military leadership from 1775-1783 during the American Revolution.

Later that year, his son Lincoln finished the project, which had spanned 14 years (6.5 years of actual carving and 8.5 years of delays due to lack of money and bad weather) at a cost of $1 million Every mo...   [tags: Mount Rushmore, national parks, John Gutzon de la ] 940 words

Replacement of the Book with Computers - The Book Is Dead. Long Live the Book. The book, so post-structuralists critics have long been assuring us, just isn't what it used to be—or, to be more accurate, what we used to think it was. It's no longer a discrete entity, a little world unto itself wedged between two covers, a piece of discourse that speaks to us with a unified voice, the work of an individual author. Instead, as critical discourse by the likes of Barthes (1979) and Derrida (1974) have informed us, the contents of one book or article are inextricably linked to dozens, even hundreds or thousands, of others, and its contents, in turn, are absorbed by other texts....   [tags: Reading Electronic Text] 2531 words

This work of art is a Grecian Urn, one side adorned with a woman being pursued by a “bold lover” and on the other a priest leading a heifer to be sacrificed. The beauty of this poem is given in five stanzas of iambic pentameter with a two part rhyme scheme, giving the poem a sense of a two part structure and, furthermore, two meanings just as there are two sides of the urn. The manifest meaning is one of the picture being timeless and the love eternal, while the latent meaning is that of silence and how love can be expressed without word or sound....   [tags: Poetry Analysis]
