- Both Robert Frost and Edward Thomas use the idea of searching as a main theme in their poems and this is shown in both ‘For Once, then, Something’ and ‘The Glory’. In Frost’s poem, the main subject is about Frost or the narrator of the poem, looking down into a well, while others taunt him. He looks into the well, and sees his own reflection in the water below, but hopes to find something beyond his reflection, something, anything that could give him peace of mind, “I discerned as I thought beyond the picture… and then I lost it.” ‘The Glory’ however is about one man’s self doubt, and wondering about what ‘glory’ actually is....   [tags: poetry, the glory, for once then something]

There are a few instances but the one that stands out the most is when he starts to inner monologue in mid-brawl with the “very bad [greasy] character” and he goes for his tire iron explaining that bad characters are always ready with a tire iron for occasion such as this. He then says, “Never mind that I [haven’t] been involved in a fight since sixth grade” that raises a few alarms (170)....   [tags: T. Coraghessan Boyle, Greasy Lake & Other Stories]

An Analysis of Robert Frost's Once by the Pacific

- An Analysis of Robert Frost's Once by the Pacific Most readers are familiar with the poetry of Robert Frost, but they may not be familiar with his poem "Once by the Pacific." This poem stands out from most of his popular poems, which frequently relate to rural New England life. Many critics have thus commented that his works are too simple. "Once by the Pacific," however, seems to challenge this opinion, as it is one of Frost's more "difficult" poems to interpret. Although this poem also is connected with nature, the theme is more universal in that it could be related to Armageddon, or the end of the world....   [tags: Once by the Pacific Essays]

The shift is long and detailed but in the end everything ties together. Although at points the plot is grim, White throws in a little bit of satire throughout every book, for example in Book II when the Orkney environment is harsh but then it is contradicted by the behavior of Sir Pellinore, Sir Grummore, and Sir Palomides. In Book III, it is very descriptive and tedious with a darker tone, but then also is offset by Lancelot’s adventures....   [tags: Once and Future King, White, ]

Sir Thomas More’s Utopia: An Alternative to European Life

- Presented as a conversation between friends, Sir Thomas More’s Utopia offers an alternative to European life that is hopelessly unobtainable, but undeniably superior. Utopia is absolutely fiction, and yet it is written in a style that makes its content remarkably believable. More’s conversational attitude towards a serious and scholarly piece of thought makes his thesis at once obscure and obvious. He spends a majority of the narrative describing small, unconnected details of the lives of the Utopians, ignoring the lengthy scholastic explanations which are to be expected of a man of his education, and yet through the detail he reveals an expansive and original hypothesis....   [tags: Sir Thomas More, Utopia]

He was largely intolerant of Protestants, to the point where when King Henry VIII split with the Catholic Church to form the new Anglican Church in 1532, he regarded the split as blasphemous. When Anne Boleyn passed away, he refused to attend the funeral, resulting in him being marked for death. However, in Utopia, Raphael describes the religion of Utopia, where any religion was allowed, however most religions were pagan versions of Catholicism (similar rites, and devotion to one entity, whether it be the Sun, Moon, animals, and whatnot)....   [tags: Henry VIII of England, Thomas More]
