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.

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]

In “Sonnet 75” and “Astrophel and Stella” there is the presence of symbolism. This element is a cornerstone to these poems and helps the reader think deeper beyond the literal meanings of words, and how they represent something greater. The use of symbolism also makes the readers mind think about how the sentences state something literally, but also have a deeper meaning. If this element were not to be used, then the poems would lose some of their charisma because most sonnets have a deeper meaning to be conveyed with the use help of symbolism....   [tags: Symbolism, Poetry, Renaissance, Sir Phillip Sidney] 583 words

Edmund Spenser vs. Virgil and Ariosto - Edmund Spenser vs Virgil and Ariosto Some scholars believe Spenser did not have sufficient education to compose a work with as much complexity as The Faerie Queene, while others are still “extolling him as one of the most learned men of his time”. Scholar Douglas Bush agrees, “scholars now speak less certainly that they once did of his familiarity with ancient literature”. In contrast, Meritt Hughes “finds no evidence that Spenser derived any element of his poetry from any Greek Romance”....   [tags: essays papers]

Role of Women in Edmund Spenser's The Faerie Queene - Role of Women in Edmund Spenser's The Faerie Queene       Edmund Spenser in his epic romance, The Faerie Queene, invents and depicts a wide array of female figures.  Some of these women, such as Una and Caelia, are generally shown as faithful, virtuous and overall lovely creatures.  Other feminine characters, such as Errour, Pride, and Duessa are false, lecherous and evil.  This might seem to be the end of Spenser's categorization of women; that they are either good or bad.  Yet upon closer examination one finds that Spenser seems to be struggling to portray women more honestly, to depict the "complex reality of woman" (Berger, 92).  Spenser does not simply "idealize women or the feminine viewpoint" as he could easily do via characters like Una, but instead attempts to "revise and complicate the traditional male view" of women (Berger, 92, 111).  Spenser endeavors to show various female characters, in both powerful and weak roles, and also to emphasize the importance of women in his society.  Despite his intentions to give a fair representation, however, it is still obvious that Spenser was influenced by a society with a culture “whose images of woman and love, and whose institutions affecting women and love, were products of the male imagination” (Berger, 91).  Throughout The Faerie Queene, Spenser reveals his anxiety about women and their power....   [tags: Faerie Queene Free Essays]

Good vs. Evil in Faerie Queene by Edmund Spenser - Good vs. Evil in Faerie Queene by Edmund Spenser Good versus evil is one of the most commonly used themes in literature. Edmund Spenser’s “Faerie Queene” is no exception to this theme. The story consists of a knight who must save the day and win the hand of his true love. This plot in itself is really common in story plots. The “Faerie Queene,” however, adds a little life to this old tradition. Allegory is placed in this story and really makes up the theme and brings it to life. Allegory is a literary device where a metaphor is extended throughout the narrative and the characters in the story symbolize a type of virtue....   [tags: Faerie Queene Good Evil Allegory Essays] 888 words

All for Show – The Post-Petrarchan Poetry of Wyatt, Sidney, and Spenser - ... Their work responds to a tradition of romantic love that silences, commodifies, and objectifies women in order to show how truly insecure the balance of subject and object really is. An argument for objectification presumes not only a stable subject and object but that the writer’s dominance is at every moment reasserted by their phallic control of the text. What one finds, however, in Wyatt, Sidney, and Spenser, is that no such gendered, harmonious, and self-sustaining relationship exists.
