The Beautiful Song Of Solomon

- ... Overall the text appeared as being persistently consumed with hellfire and damnation; which, categorically, made me feel somewhat “creepy.” Indisputably, except for the book of Psalms, Song of Solomon, and a few other books, I basically did not like “that portion” of the text; whereupon, this section prevailed as the larger part of it. All I could visualize consisted of a bunch of old men successively threatening all and sundry with doom. Through time, I noticed quite a number of people also had an arm’s-length approach to the Old Testament God; primarily, referred to as a “God of War,” with little sentiments regarding a compassionate loving Creator....   [tags: New Testament, Bible, Old Testament, Jesus]

The Love Song of Alfred J. Prufrock

- The Love Song of Alfred J. Prufrock by T.S. Eliot is a striking poem that takes the form of a dramatic monologue. It is an internal dialogue and, because of this, there is a suggestion of something that is not said plainly and directly on the surface, a sort of underlying feeling put into words. At times it seems that it is really Prufrock’s subconscious mind speaking. However, over the course of the poem, Prufrock seems to be shining an almost pathetic light on himself. This is most clearly shown through his failure actually to succeed in his “love song” and acquire a lover, his allusions to Hamlet and fools, and his constant worry over what seem to be trivial anxieties....   [tags: Poetry]
