Myself in India by Ruth Prawer Jhabvala - ... This is according to Jhabvala the Indians' preference because in their believe in reincarnation “If things are not to your liking in this life, there is always the chance that in your next life everything will be different. It appears to be a consoling thought for both rich and poor”. Jhabvala herself uses isolation in order to cope with this. She basically shouts out the outside world and remains unaffected by the influences which exits out there. But She has come to the realization that this is not working due to the fact that this leaves her feeling lonely and shout off. There are two types of Indians according to Jhabvala....   [tags: Myself in India] 1135 words

Individuality in Whitman's Song of Myself - Individuality in Whitman's Song of Myself During a lecture in 1907, William James said "the philosophy which is so important in each of us is not a technical matter; it is our more or less dumb sense of what life honestly means. It is only partly got from books; it is our individual way of just seeing and feeling the total push and pressure of the cosmos" (Bartlett 546) Individuality has been a prevalent theme in every type of literature for quite some time.

Walt Whitman's Song of Myself - Walt Whitman's Song of Myself This paper deals with Walt Whitman's "Song of Myself" in relation to Julia Kristeva's theories of abjection--my paper does not point to abjection in the text, but rather the significance of the abscence of abjection. This abscence, looming and revolting, arises from Whitman's attemt to refigure a conception of sublimity which delimits the material which can trigger the sublime moment. Whitman's democracy of the sublime is inclusive of those figures on the American landscape, their lives and voices, which are functionalized into his world....   [tags: Walt Whitman Song Myself Essays] 3626 words

Walt Whitman's Song of Myself - Walt Whitman's "Song of Myself" Walt Whitman's 'Song of Myself' is, on the most basic descriptive level, a really long poem. Whitman is clearly a poet with a lot to say, or at least with a lot of different ways to say it. He meanders from the micro to the macro, from atoms to the whole earth. There are obviously myriad ways to explain what the poem is about, and myriad 'keys' to its true meaning. In what became Section 6 of the final edition (lines 90-121 of the 1855 edition ) Whitman himself addresses this sort of 'meta-question' of interpretation....   [tags: Walt Whitman Song Myself Essays] 1767 words

myself - Growing up in a town of less than 1500 citizens offered little or no diversity at all. I grew up around others that belittled people for their beliefs, color of skin, or sexuality.

Choosing Sides in Walt Whitman's "Song of Myself" - “Song of Myself” is an attempt by Walt Whitman to become the “American poet” as described by Ralph Waldo Emerson; he attempts to be “[T]he sayer, the namer, and [representative] of beauty” (Emerson 1182). Whitman wants to speak to and for America. Whitman does not explicitly choose sides on the slavery debate that was raging at the time of his writing, but he does express the equality of all people, regardless of gender and race in “Song of Myself”. While Whitman’s writing can be read as neutral but “Song of Myself” is, in reality, very anti-slavery and pro-equality....   [tags: Walt Whitman, Song of Myself, poetry, ] 1109 words

He even says of himself, "I contradict myself" (Lauter, p. 2793). This can make Whitman's poetry a little confusing to some. In his many stanzas, definition of the soul is ambiguous and somewhat contradictory. Whitman says, "Clear and sweet is my soul....and clear and sweet is all that is not my soul" (Lauter, p. 2745). What I believe Whitman is saying here is that his soul and everything else that is not his soul, including the souls of others, is clear and sweet....   [tags: Song of Myself Essays Poetry Papers]

Poetic Tools Describe Life in Walt Whitman's Song of Myself - Poetic Tools Describe Life in Walt Whitman's Song of Myself Walt Whitman is commonly known as the bard of America, a poet who wrote about the common man of the country as had never been done before. He was able to do so because he was a common man, as can be seen in lines such as "This is the city and I am one of the citizens." Within his poetry he often used certain tools of the typical epic tale, borrowed from such tales as The Iliad, and The Odyssey. All of these tools can be seen within the lines of his lengthy poem of fifty-two sections "Song of Myself." The first of these tools include an invocation of the muse, as can be seen in the lines "I loafe and invite my soul," which appears to be an invocation of a muse, or his own soul which may also be his muse....   [tags: Song of Myself Essays]

Song of Myself by Walt Whitman - ... Some stanzas are six lines long while others are only one, and the lines can be either concise or drawn out. The poem also lacks any apparent rhyming scheme or rhythm. Unlike Shakespearean poetry, where the foot of the poem stays the same, the lack of any apparent structure to the poem leaves the reader unable to predict what is coming next. In addition to this, at the time this poem was written, free verse was not common.

Song Of Myself: Individuality And Free Verse - Song Of Myself: Individuality And Free Verse Works Cited Not Included Forged in the fire of revolution and defined by manifest destiny, America has always been the land of the individual. Although the American dream has not always been consistent, (married with 2.5 kids, 2 cars, a dog and a satisfying job), the spirit of innovation, individuality and progress remains unchanged. The father of free verse, and perhaps the American perspective of poetry, Walt Whitman embodies these values in his life and work....   [tags: essays research papers] 1521 words

College English - A Holistic Dialogue with Myself - College English - A Holistic Dialogue with Myself The air was crisp and filled with the promise of snow. My first day of my first semester, I ran hurriedly upon the main thoroughfares of University Park, campus short cuts and walkways were yet unknown. Stopping occasionally, I took a knee, pulled out my highlighted map, and felt compelled to take an azimuth. Snow fell around me; my water tube dripped slowly; my muskrat hat caught the flakes within the fine bristles of the visor. Aviation glasses plastered to my face and cargo pockets bulging with my keys, student schedule, rolled up map, and glasses case, I stood up quickly and ran for class....   [tags: Teaching Writing Education] 1376 words

Myself: Now and Five Years Ago - Myself: Now and Five Years Ago What it takes to make a man great is his foundation, training, and drive for the dreams that his mind ponders. Greatness is a term not often used with a name of one human being. Dwight Eisenhower is a great man, and I use that term in the most noble way. He was a man formed by his country like an artist forms a piece of clay.

Compare/contrast Whitman’s Song of Myself with Ginsberg’s Howl - ... The self of Whitman is all-encompassing; it absorbs all activities rural or urban. There is a unity in all diverse ‘items’ of the self and in the self. Ginsberg uses the same device in “Howl” to pay his tribute and as a parody of Whitman. He projects this self in the very first line: “I saw the best minds of my generation destroyed by madness starving hysterical naked,” (Ginsberg 49). Ginsberg’s ‘I’ wanders the United States unlike Whitman’s ‘I’. America of Whitman is full of endless diversity....   [tags: Poetry Analysis ]

Stigma In Me, Myself, and Irene about Schizophrenia - Most people gather what they know about mental illnesses from television and film. Unfortunately these media portrayals are inaccurate and create stigma. They depict people suffering from mental illnesses as different, dangerous and laughable. Characters are often addicted to drugs or alcohol, are violent, dangerous, or out of control. Horror film characters like Norman Bates in Psycho, Jack Torrance in the Shining, or Hannibal Lecter in Silence of the Lambs associate the typical 'psycho- killer' with people who suffer from a mental illness....   [tags: Psychology Mental Illness] 1162 words

An Annotation of Section 24 of Walt Whitman's Song of Myself - An Annotation of Section 24 of Walt Whitman's Song of Myself Walt Whitman's "Song of Myself" is a vision of the American spirit, a vision of Whitman himself. It is his cry for democracy, giving each of us a voice through his poetry. Each of us has a voice and desires, and this is Whitman's representation of our voices, the voice of America. America, the great melting pot, was founded for freedom and democracy, and this poem is his way of re-instilling these lost American ideals. In this passage from "Song of Myself" Whitman speaks through his fellow man and speaks for his fellow man when his voice is not socially acceptable to be heard....   [tags: Whitman Section 24 Poem Poet Essays] 1355 words

What I have Learned about Myself - What I have Learned about Myself I can remember sitting in class, feeling eyes burning through me, dodging inquisitive glances from all sides, and anxiously awaiting the bell to ring for lunchtime. As most people know, lunch is the most dreaded part of the first day at a new school. First day of school memories are still fairly vivid for me; my father was in the JAG corps in the Army and my family moved with biannual regularity. In fact, I even attended three different high schools. While this may seem highly undesirable to some, I learned an incredible amount about myself, the world, and other people through moving that I may never have learned otherwise....   [tags: Law College Admissions Essays] 692 words

Discovering Myself - Day one. I was pretty much similar to everyone else. I was born through Caesarian methods. As I was brought forth from the recesses of my mother’s womb, I let out a loud cry that sent my grandma running into a glass door trying to get to me. The people at the delivery room patted my back and washed me. Then, they sent me home with my mother. It was all pretty much normal: it happens to everyone. In my first years of life, I was the diva.

Proper Use of the Term Myself in Please Forgive I; Myself Just Isn't Me Today by Mike Kelley - Proper Use of the Term Myself in Please Forgive I; Myself Just Isn't Me Today by Mike Kelley In Mike Kelley's essay entitled, "Please Forgive I; Myself Just Isn't Me Today," he makes reference to the use of the term "myself." Kelley makes it clear that he does not believe in the use of the term "myself" in such a way as, "Dr. Richards and myself will talk about..." (As if heard on TV). This sort language is accepted modern usage, but as Kelley reminds us, "I refuse to accept any usage that is defined as modern." He believes this sort of language is what leads to other appalling statements like, "Hopefully it won't rain again today," which should then be answered with such a comment as, "Yes, hopelessly the sun will shine on little children all over the world, you benighted, salivating nit." He goes on to convince us that, according to him, there is only one correct use of the word "myself" which is to indicate agreement....   [tags: Papers] 637 words

Many attitudes remain the same as they were in my parent's youth. Some people still stare at others because they are different and some still carry hatred and anger in their hearts because another person's skin color is not the same as theirs.

Walt Whitman’s Song of Myself and Alice Fulton’s You Can’t Rhumboogie in a Ball and Chain - Walt Whitman’s Song of Myself and Alice Fulton’s You Can’t Rhumboogie in a Ball and Chain When I read poetry, I often tend to look first at its meaning and second at how it is written, or its form. The mistake I make when I do this is in assuming that the two are separate, when, in fact, often the meaning of poetry is supported or even defined by its form. I will discuss two poems that embody this close connection between meaning and form in their central use of imagery and repetition. One is a tribute to Janis Joplin, written in 1983 by Alice Fulton, entitled “You Can’t Rhumboogie in a Ball and Chain.” The second is a section from Walt Whitman’s 1,336-line masterpiece, “Song of Myself,” first published in 1855....   [tags: Comparison Compare Contrast Essays]

I watched as the waiters tirelessly travelled laps from table to table in search of fresh orders and annoyingly small tips.
