England in 1819

- England in 1819 Great poetry is great not because of what it says but because of how it is phrased. Few poems say anything that is very profound; instead, the best of them use language in novel, memorable, and effective ways. Certainly this is true of Percy Bysshe Shelley's famous sonnet "England in 1819." In this poem Shelley describes the depressing, dark, and dirty state of affairs caused in Britain by political, social, and spiritual corruption. However, this poem would not be nearly as effective if it were not for Shelley's powerful use of such classic rhetorical devices as adjectives, alliteration, assonance, imagery, irony, lists, themes, and verbs....   [tags: essays papers]

The Differences and Similarities Between Caged Bird and Still I Rise

- The Differences and Similarities Between Caged Bird and Still I Rise ‘Caged Bird’ and ‘Still I Rise’ are in their own ways similar, because they are both noticeably about the coloured race and the entrapment of that race and their bid for freedom. But both poems also display many differences, like the use of metaphors and ways of expressing their determination and the segregation of their race. Their titles almost sound like opposites with a capture of something and a rise above something, but ‘Still I Rise’ would also be a rise above a capture or an attempt at a capture Maya Angelou, the author, was raised in segregated, rural Arkansas, and so this could be the reason for the content of h...   [tags: English Literature]
