Kate Chopin's, "The story of An Hour" is about Louise Mallard discovering the death of her husband Brently Mallard. The way the message was to be communicated was to be soft-hearted since Louise had a pre-existing heart condition. We were told right off the bat that she had this heart condition. She was taken by surprise hearing that her husband had passed, she went through the stages of grief quickly to come to a realization that his death meant freedom for her, and her gaining back power that she lost when they had wed. But, Louise Mallard's death was not what everyone thought it seemed to be.
Majority of his poems was written in a little over a year, from 1917 to 1918, while only five of his poems were published. Wilfred Owen died in action at the age of twenty-five, he died one week before the Armistice, which ended the First World War. Through pararhyme couplet, onomatopoeic words and imagery, Owen describes the similarities of war and hell in order to signify war’s psychological effects on a soldier coming home. The narrator is a soldier who seemingly has escaped battle, now follows a path into a long, old tunnel by which had granite walls or formations. The soldier is walking and hears groaning of either sleeping soldiers, deep in thought or dead.
His poems were traditional but he often said as a dig at his archrival Carl Sandburg, that “he would soon play tennis without a net as write free verse.” Frost said this because he believed he was a pioneer of rhythm and meter and in the poetic use of vocabulary and inflections of everyday life and speech. Frost’s poetry is considered to be traditional, experimental, regional, and universal (Robert 1997). Frost was born of two teachers. At the age of ten, Frost suffered the loss of his father. After the death of his father, his mother moved to Lawrence, Massachusetts.
As Brother feels sorrowful due to Doodle’s death, Brother, “began to weep, and the tear-blurred vision in red before me looked very familiar” (12). By the author’s use of the word “weep”, readers can recall an event where they wept and it was most likely because of sadness. This applies to Brother because he is weeping over Doodle’s death, expressing his sadness to the readers, thus instilling a dreary mood in them as well. Additionally, as Brother lays there crying near Doodle’s body after his death, Brother “[shelters his] fallen scarlet ibis from the heresy of rain” (12). The use of the fallen scarlet ibis as a symbol for Doodle stresses the similarities in the fragility of Doodle and the bird.
People assumed suicide because at the time of his death Randall was in treatment for slitting his wrists in an attempt to kill himself. Most of Randall’s poetry reflects what he saw and experienced during the war. The structure that Jarrell uses in his poem, “The Death of the Ball Turret Gunner,” is quite unique. This poem consists of five uneven verses. All of these verses are combined into one stanza.
They reflect the poets own thoughts and feelings as he is heard as the narrator making the poems biographical, almost as if they were a page from a diary. They have both only recently (with some of his other poems written when at the asylum), been published from manuscripts and the full contents of his work recognised. When first read, it appears that they almost share an identical theme of loneliness and despair, but after a second and third reading, there is some remarkable dissimilarity. Both "A Vision" and "I am" are very personal, intimate poems, both displaying the inner workings and substance of Clare's supposedly deranged mind. While "A Vision" is a definitive statement about Clare's asylum life, "I Am" is a deeper exploration into the chaos of sanatorium life.
However, he has earned himself the reputation of Japan’s greatest contemporary novelist (Gale, Magill). Every night Mishima dedicated the late hours to writing his novels. Mishima had been nominated for the Nobel Prize twice in his lifetime, but lost first to his friend Kawabata, and later to Miguel Asturias (Stokes 192). Yukio Mishima should be remembered for his great novels, Confessions of a Mask, The Temple of the Golden Pavilion, and The Sea of Fertility tetralogy. Confessions of a Mask was a therapeutic effort for Mishima (Nathan 1057), but also a major artistic success in his career (1149).
In this story it explains about a man that was founded guilty for the murder of h... ... middle of paper ... ...of his poems they can be hard to find and very Rare at that because they are so old it’s hard to find some of them. At a very young age he learned to read write and also speck all different languages by the age of 5. Very educated man and a very bright man.

But goes off when he mentions a blackening church and bloody palace walls. Makes you think that he’s a confused person or that he is just setting his surroundings. He compares a Harlot’s curse to a new-born infant’s tears, which gives the reader the impression that he always thinks the worst of every situation. But the last line of the poem makes you think he’s going through something with his wife because he talks about a marriage hearse. A hearse represents death and so it could possibly mean the death of the marriage or the death of his wife in general.
If you think about it Louise died while she was feeling free; and maybe it was because when she saw her husband, she felt her new freedom was gone. This story also makes me wonder if the author felt somewhat guilty for wanting her “freedom” after her husband had died. Depending on the reader’s perspective, the story can be interpreted in various ways which leads to the real question of the story: did Louise die from disappointment or joy or neither?
