Young Pope struggled to receive a decent education. When he was six, he loved to read Peterson 2 books and later discovered the epic Homer. Later in that age, he was expelled from his school in London by penal law of the Parliament, prohibiting Roman Catholics living within 10 miles near London. Pope was tutored and given home school by his... ... middle of paper ... ...ing the 18th century since William Shakespeare.

I fell in love with Edgar Allan Poe when I first read his story The Raven, during my freshman year language class. Edgar was born January 19th, 1809 in Boston Massachusetts to Elizabeth and David Poe. Being an infant Edgar was moved vigorously because of his parents professions of traveling actors. The money brought in was very scarce and did not please his father David. At the age of two Edgars father abandoned the family leaving his mother Elizabeth alone with Edgar, his infant sister Rosalie, and his older brother Henry.
In his short story “Young Goodman Brown,” Nathaniel Hawthorne’s Puritan ancestry aids in developing ______symbols and the inner complexities of his characters. Born on July 4, 1804, Hawthorne spent most of his childhood years living in Salem, Massachusetts with his mother and sisters. His father’s death in 1808 left the family penniless, forcing them to rely on support from relatives. With the help of his wealthy uncle Robert Manning, Hawthorne enrolled at Bowdoin College in 1821. Although Hawthorne was not enthusiastic and hard-working when it came to his schoolwork, he was still an avid reader and writer.
The even awkward part of this story is that he graduated Lawrence High School as co-valedictorian of his graduating class. When I saw that I was very struck. I realized that changing is all up to one person and that one person is you. Robert Frost’s life took drastic changes and as a result of this his poetry varies quite a bit (Silberner 192). At the time he was writing his more depressing poems, he was having trouble getting his poems published, and he was doing oddball jobs to make ends meet (Gioia and Kennedy 522).
Though his years of studying, Housman became stunned when he fell in love with his straight friend, Moses Jackson. (The Academy of American Poets) Housman grades begin to fail and he barely passed his last year of college. After nearly passing the last year of college, Housman took a position as a clerk in the Patent Office for ten years. During his time in London, he studied Greek and Roman classics from beginning to end, Housman then became professor of Latin at The University College in London. (The Academy of American Poets) Housman studies paid off when his poetry began to gain popularity.
Carl Sandburg is so greatly remembered because his writing was considerably different from the writing of his contemporaries. He let his mind travel, and be free. His works included the use of free verse, colloquialisms, an original type of rhythm, and oddly structured, prosaic poetry that emphasized key phrases and images. (clc 35, 338) Sandburg was the first of a long line of poets and authors to use the words and phrases that he created in his poetry. Sandburg's style of writing is what changed the course of American poetry.
Our first poet, Macleish (who for time constraints we shall call “Archie”), who seemingly states something about poetry in his poem Ars Poetica (basically The Art of Poetry in Latin. O, the vestiges we cling to in order to feign importance! ), perhaps something ‘meaningful’, if you catch my cold. Within Ars Poetica, Archie Mac lays down a neat and simple jet disjointed verse for us to savor. About as simple as a modernized poem can get, his gist proposes that written verse is subjective, but also that the more succinct the verse, the more potent the message.
After almost twenty years as a professor, Longfellow retired and devoted himself to his craft of poetry. After tasting random stanzas and meters of Longfellow’s work, it is easy to identify his tone: uplifting, positive and somewhat glowing. Along with his shorter pieces that evoke positive feelings, Longfellow also tells stories with his longer poetry. He used lyrical verses to describe, weave and introduce new characters or feelings. From the poem "The Skeleton in Armor" to "Paul Revere’s Ride," Longfellow opened up worlds with his words, whether as real as the Revolutionary War, or as mystic as Nordic my... ... middle of paper ... ...t, overall, passion was underneath his skin.
Most of browning education came from his father because he was very smart when Browning turned 5 he was already proficient at reading and writing. Browning was very much influenced by Percy Shelley poetry and by his 13th birthday he wanted the rest of his works. Browning was very intelligent; he knew French, Greek, and Latin by the age of fourteen. Browning got homeschooled between the ages 14-16 by many different tutors for music, writing, and horsemanship. He wrote poems between the ages thirteen and twenty Browning wrote a volume of Byronic verse called ‘’incondita’’.
