Depression in To Seem the Stranger, Fell of Dark, Carrion Comfort, and No Worst

- Depression in To seem the Stranger, Fell of Dark, Carrion Comfort, and No Worst   I believe that there can be seen a progressive deepening of depression throughout Hopkins' so-called terrible sonnets. The poems I intend to look at will show this, starting with "To seem the Stranger lies my Lot", "I wake and Feel the Fell of Dark", "Carrion Comfort", "No Worst, there is None", and finally "My own Heart let me more have Pity on". The first of the above poems shows the beginning of Hopkins' descent into depression....   [tags: To Seem the Stranger Essays]

Greek Influence in Finnegans Wake

- Finnegans Wake exhumes mythologies and theologies of cultures encompassing the whole of human experience. Not the least researched are references and correspondences to classical mythology, but the family of gods in the Greek creation myth offers a unique parallel to Joyce's ever-expansive Wakean family. In doing so, I will use as a guide a scholar of both classical mythology and the institution of family, Giambattista Vico. In the Greek creation myth (and also in Genesis), an unnammable god divided timeless and formless Chaos--"joepeter's gaseytotum" (FW, 426.21; 'Jupiter's gaseous universe,' L totum)-- into heaven and earth, the male Uranus and female Gaea....   [tags: Finnegans Wake Essays]

Analysis Of The Movie ' Dark Shadows '

- DARK SHADOWS It would not be hard to argue that Tim Burton has lost some of his magic in the last few years. Granted his bank account has grown considerable in this period especially since Alice in Wonderland. It seemed that financial wealth had paved the way to creative bankruptcy. Films like Charlie and the Chocolate factory and Planet of the Apes had shown that the director was less willing to take a chance instead trying to adapt his "quirkiness"" to already established properties. Trailers for Dark Shadows provided hope of the director 's return to form showing hints of both Beatle juice and Edward scissor hands....   [tags: Tim Burton, Johnny Depp, Dark Shadows]

Finnegan's Wake

- Finnegan's Wake is an old Irish tune, but these words were added later for music-hall use during the Victorian era.

My confidence was because of the environment, and some methods used by what Peter Elbow describes are needed to create a safe environment for the mother tongue. Pondiscio and Elbow both describe both situations and I believe it is important to understand both perspectives to help a writer mature.
