"Anyone Lived in a Pretty How Town" Analysis

- The poem “anyone lived in a pretty how town” by E.E. Cummings talks about the cycle of life and the importance of structure, symbolism, and language of the poem. For instance, the poem has nine stanzas, which has a rhyming pattern of AABC. The rhythm of the poem is significant for it supports one of themes, the cycle of life. Cumming uses season to explain the poem's progress. “spring summer autumn winter” (3) and “sun moon stars rain” (8) symbolizes time passing, which represents life passing.

Analysis Of ' Korea 's Place On The Sun And William Stueck 's Book ' Rethinking The Korean War '

- Arnold makes the assertion that the history and the past are different terms and have different meanings. I intend to asses and qualify this assertion by using Arnold’s opinion as well as two separate readings. Bruce Cumings book “Korea’s place in the Sun” and William Stueck’s book “Rethinking the Korean War” both tell the history of the Korean War and the events that took place. However, both have an extremely different narrative and take on the war and this is because they are telling the “true stories about the past” but from their own interests and that differentiates history and the past because if they were the same thing we wouldn’t need so many history books....   [tags: Korean War, World War II, North Korea]

Overwhelming Patriotism

- E.E. Cummings poem “next to of course god America i” can be interpreted, on the surface, as a stark criticism of patriotism in general. However, he is not just criticizing patriotism, but, criticizing blind patriotism and abusing blind patriotism to further an agenda. The poem itself is a reflection of the picturesque American life portrayed in snap shots of patriotic songs and colloquialisms that are indicative to American life. These snap shots help highlight how excessive patriotism begins and how it can be overwhelming....   [tags: Poetry]

New Love Is A Powerful Force

- New love is a powerful force. It can be overwhelming, inspiring, and a bit scary. Ultimately, though, as REO Speedwagon once said, it can “make everything so clear” (“Can’t Fight This Feeling”). In “since feeling is first,” e. e. cummings utilizes contrasting metaphors, as well as unconventional syntax and form, in order to portray this sentiment. The speaker, in a flash of romantic interest, experiences a sudden realization of his past follies in the way he has approached love, and shares this new understanding with both the reader and the object of his desire....   [tags: Poetry, Stanza, Emotion, Life]

The Many Ways Of Life And Agriculture By Thomas C. Foster

- Since ancient times, a stable civilization could only subsist if it were able to take advantage of the earth and its weather. Agriculture heavily depended upon the cycling of seasons to grow food and therefore, if one could not adapt to the different phases of weather, he or she would simply not survive. Subsequently, this way of life and agriculture ultimately united people and led to the formation of agrarian societies. Essentially, the ability to harvest food meant the ability to live. Consequently, seasons naturally became symbolically associated with life since it was directly tied to farming and food....   [tags: Season, Autumn, Winter, Spring]

The Conflict between Man and Machine in The Naked and the Dead

- While the surface of Norman Mailer’s The Naked and the Dead centers around World War II, its focus is on “the conflict…between the mechanistic forces of the ‘system’ and the will to individual integrity” (Waldron 273).
