Musée des Beaux Arts by W. H. Auden

- Suffering is embedded in our daily lives. There are devastating things going on in our daily environments and yet, people seldom realize this as they occupy themselves with other tasks. W.H. Auden’s, Musée des Beaux Arts, is a statement on human perceptions and how we use them to observe, or block out human suffering. While we are doing ordinary things like eating, or opening a window, bad things can be happening to others and it is as easy as looking up, to see what is actually going on. Auden illustrates societies’ indifference to human suffering through the form of his poem and by alluding to artwork that compares human perceptions and juxtaposes ordinary images with images of suffering a...   [tags: suffering, poem]

Role of Works of Art in Ode on a Grecian Urn and Musée des Beaux Arts

- While differing in technique and subject matter, John Keats’ “Ode on a Grecian Urn” (1820) and W.H. Auden’s “Musée des Beaux Arts” (1940) demonstrate how using the rhetorical device of Ekphrasis in poetry helps to guide the reader to the central themes and messages of the poem. Both poems confront and explore the works of art differently: while Keats uses the rustic urn (in which scenes and myths are depicted upon it) to confront the nature as well as the limits of the world of art and fantasy; Auden uses Brueghel’s painting, The Fall of Icarus, in his second stanza to help reinforce the speaker’s comments (stated within the first stanza) on the apathy or indifference that seems to be presen...   [tags: ekphrasis, poetry, composition]

Comparing Museacutee des Beaux Arts and Life Cycle of Common Man

- Comparing Musée des Beaux Arts and Life Cycle of Common Man "Musée des Beaux Arts" and "Life Cycle of Common Man" share a common theme, though the imagery they use to express it is quite different.  Both poems have the theme of life goes on or life stops for no one.  The difference in imagery is the difference between the general and the specific.  I believe that the theme of both poems lies in the same vein, but they take different paths to its development.  Auden speaks more about society in general; then, he gives an interpretation of a painting as an example.  On the other hand, Nemerov expresses the theme through the "life cycle" of one man, but is this one man--everyman?  The "they"...   [tags: comparison compare contrast essays]

Analysis Of The Poem ' Musee Des Beaux Arts '

- Modern Life "Musee des Beaux Arts" is a poem written by W.H. Auden in December of 1938, while he was staying in Brussels Belgium. The poem ‘Musee des Beaux Arts’ means ‘Museum of Fine Arts’ in French, he composed this after he visited the museum in Paris. This poem may be hard to understand when you first read it, and has the feel of being much older than 77 years of age. Although, this poem is very complex it is still relative and can be applied to our current modern day life. Many issues and problems the world had 80 years ago still exist today, and they will continue to exist for another 80 years after us....   [tags: Art, Modernism, W. H. Auden, Arts]

Analysis Of Musee Des Beaux Arts

- ... Anyone who enjoys art at a philosophical level understands this type of thought process, one where a painting catches your eye and you are left captivated. One begins to think existentially about humanity and life as a whole with several epiphanies. It is almost as if we are beginning to start this emotional journey with the narrator but using our own experiences of human suffrage given that his are so vague. Lines three and four start to give the reader more detail as he begins to explain “how it takes place / While someone else is eating or opening a window or just walking dully along; (3, 4).” Auden uses the term “it” referring to suffering but continuing to play with the vagueness in...   [tags: Suffering, Emotion, Personal life]

W.H. Auden's Musee des Beaux Arts and Pieter Bruegel's The Fall of Icarus

- W.H. Auden's Musee des Beaux Arts and Pieter Bruegel's The Fall of Icarus W.H. Auden and Pieter Bruegel were both keen observers of the ordinary. In Bruegel’s painting “The Fall of Icarus”, he is able to look past the tragedy of the death of Icarus and focus on the simple scene surrounding the event. Auden’s poem, “Musee des Beaux Arts”, has the same qualities: it glazes over the nature of tragedy, and chooses to instead examine the fact that life goes on while disaster occurs. Arthur F. Kinney highlights this idea of calm in the face of tragedy in a critical essay entitled “Auden, Bruegel, and Musee des Beaux Arts”....   [tags: Auden Bruegel Icarus Arts human nature Essays]

Theme of Suffering in Musee des Beaux Arts by W.H. Auden

- A poem is a great way to express your feelings as well as get your point across. Each poet tells their story but sometimes it isn't so easy to figure out what it is trying to say.

A Deeper Look into Auden’s Poetry

- In two of Auden’s major works he uses the idea of absent-mindedness to express how humans can be self-centered, and tend to have a blind eye towards other peoples’ issues rather than their own. In “Musée des Beaux Arts”, Auden uses a painting by Pieter Brueghel called, Landscape with the Fall of Icarus as a setting for his poem, and uses the characters in the painting as proof that people can be very self-absorbed and unaware. Auden also portrays this same idea in his poem “Funeral Blues”, in which he expresses the feelings of losing a loved one of extreme importance....   [tags: funeral, self-centered, witness]
