“The Going”

- “The Going” by Thomas Hardy begins with the question ‘why’ a question which Hardy is asking as himself about the death of his wife. According to the footnotes this poem is written as eulogy to his first wife Emma, who died in 1912. Her death is sudden to him and he is questioning why he did not see it coming or if he missed any hints she could have given that would have pointed to her impending death. Her passing is described as happening quickly, calmly, and indifferent. Using the words ‘as if’ are key, because that is where he won’t admit that she would leave without telling him and he is protecting himself from having to outright call her indifferent....   [tags: Poetry Analysis]

Observations on Shakespeare's As You Like It

- Observations on As You Like It As You Like It will be for many of you a rather difficult play to appreciate and interpret simply on the basis of a reading. The reasons for this are not difficult to ascertain.

How To Lower Homes Going Into Foreclosure
