- Chills traveled down my spine as my heart began to burst. I thought to myself, “How could a film be this powerful to my eyes?” Mike Newell’s “Mona Lisa Smile” hit me like a ton of bricks. I could not believe how well put this film was as the cried the last scene hearing lines such as “But not all who wander are aimless. Especially not those who seek truth beyond tradition, beyond definition, beyond the image.

Shakespeare's Bright Star

- 1. What are the effects of this poem’s structure. At first analysis of the rhyme scheme, many would describe the “Bright Star” as an English, Shakespearean sonnet. However, after a closer analysis reveals a structure of eight and then six lines rhymes interweaving, an octave preceding a sestet, it becomes evident that the poem conforms to the structure of an Italian sonnet. This merger of two sonnet types into one larger sonnet is deliberate. By harnessing the most powerful aspects of the Italian and English sonnets into a single sonnet, Keats is able to present structurally his ideas while also emphasizing the couplet....   [tags: sonet analysis]

Bright Star essay

- In Bright Star, Keats utilises a mixture of the Shakespearean and Petrarchan sonnet forms to vividly portray his thoughts on the conflict between his longing to be immortal like the steadfast star, and his longing to be together with his love.

The structure of Bright Star is unique in that it breaks free of the limitations of the sonnet form, a form that is notorious for its strict and constrained nature....   [tags: John Keats]
