Sonnet 64 of Spencer's Amoretti - Sonnet 64 of Spencer's Amoretti        Poets, in general, are fond of symbolism and figures of speech.  Instead of wallowing in the concrete and the obvious, it has always been the purpose of the poet to give "... to aery nothing a local habitation and a name."  The writers of love poetry are especially fond of imagery, metaphors, and similar devices, comparing their loved ones to such and such an animal or cosmic event.         It is therefore of no surprise that 16th century sonnets employ many figures of speech when elaborating on the finer points of the subject.  Spenser, throughout his masterful Amoretti, is especially effective at drawing forth emotions;  from feelings of despair (employing symbols of storms and lost ships), through to feelings of passion (and symbols of fertility and love, such as flowers), and eventually even transcending mere mortal flesh and glorifying the sensual spirit of his love, Spencer's use of symbolism and figures of speech not only remains constant and sure, but also create an effective mood and set the proper tone.          His 64th sonnet is a fine example of well used symbolism, where his love is compared to a ripe and blooming garden, resplendent with glorious scents and flowers.  More importantly, perhaps, the sonnet also draws from a powerful Biblical background, drawing from the Song of Solomon (4.10-14)....   [tags: Spencer Amoretti Essays]

Reaction To Who Moved My Cheese By Spencer Johnson - To start this paper, I initially typed in every one of Haw's motivational wall writings. I then analyzed them as they related to Johnson's message, my life, and to each other. Now, after writing this paper, I can assert that this story appeals to its audience on a level much more personal than their career. The story assists one's self in diminishing a fear of change. It is this core purpose that has the potential to influence the many facets of a human's life, be it in the workplace, love, or another achievement....   [tags: Spencer Johnson] 1206 words

Herbert Spencer - Herbert Spencer The most extreme reflection of nineteenth-century individualism is to be found in the encyclopedic system of Herbert Spencer (1820-1903). Both his paternal and maternal ancestors were of a long English and French nonconformists, dissenters and rebels, and Spencer traces in his "Autobiography" his "conspicuous disregard" of political, religious, and social authority to the tradition of independence and dissent so long cherished by his family.

Though Anne was a hard worker, she definitely was not a typical woman of the early 20th century.

Unfortunately, this book did not see the popularity of Social Statistics (Sweet, 2004). And although it is not clear whether there is a direct correlation or not, it was at this point in Spencer’s life that his mental illness began to take over. Spencer would describe a strange sensation in his head to which he would refer to as “the mischief”. He was also known to wear earplugs while out in public to “avoid overexcitement” and to keep his frustration levels down when debating with his fellow intellectuals if they did not share his view in the discussion (Wee, 2002)....   [tags: Philosophy]
