A Deeper Meaning

- Throughout early English literature, it is highly apparent that novels and poems had much deeper meaning than just a story for entertainment. Many of these stories were great works used for religious purposes to show that good will always triumph over evil. Two great works that utilize this are the epic poem, Beowulf and the great allegorical poem, the Faerie Queene. Though these literary works were written almost eight centuries apart, it is apparent through biblical allegories, symbolism, and descriptions that both were written for similar purposes of religious influence, but they were written to different Christian audiences....   [tags: Early English Literature]

A Deeper Meaning in Poe's Characters

- Although William L. Howarth stated that the characters in Poe’s works are undeveloped and inadequate, I believe that Poe is able to transform parts of himself into characters ad interpret a deeper meaning into the actions and behaviors of these characters. These abilities are illustrated in most of his characters. However, they are the most obvious in characters such as Lady Madeline and Roderick in “The Fall of the House of Usher,” Montresor and Fortunado in “The Cask of Amontillado,” and the raven in the famous poem, “The Raven.” In Edgar Allan Poe’s “The Fall of the House of Usher,” Poe uses characters like Roderick Usher and Lady Madeline to symbolize the mind and represent its internal...   [tags: literary genius, depth of characters]

- The Deeper Meaning of Pride and Prejudice     While Pride And Prejudice is demonstrably concerned with the subject of love, from Lydia's physical passion for Wickham, through Jane's slightly too patient and undemanding feelings for Bingley, to Elizabeth's final "perfect" match with Darcy, it would be doing the novel and its author a great injustice to assume that it is merely a love story, and has no other purpose or design. The scope of the novel is indeed much wider than a serious interest in who will marry who and who will have the manor that is worth the most money, or even the less shallow subject of women trying, failing, and succeeding at finding their perfect mates on a romantic l...   [tags: Pride Prejudice Essays]

The Meaning of Life in Frederico Garcia Lorcs's City That Does Not Sleep

- In Federico Garcia Lorca’s poem, City That Does Not Sleep, there are very prominent images and realistic ideas that are instilled upon the reader. The question is the meaning of life, one that is shrouded by dreams and countless deaths. Garcia Lorca expresses this idea through his use of surrealism to push a paradoxical idea onto the reader. In a sense, our existence is only a perception of our minds and there is not a reality that we truly believe in. The title of the author’s poem gives off a sense of uneasiness and causes the reader to dig deeper in order to find its true meaning....   [tags: poetry, nature, insignificant]

- “If a man hasn’t discovered something he will die for, then he hasn’t got a reason to live.” These were famous words of the late Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., spoken June 23, 1963 in Detroit, Michigan. Why do so many people fear death, fight for their country, defend their honor, seek love, stand up for their principles, go on living in the face of adversity, or believe in God.

The Deeper Side of Prufrock from The Love Son of J. Alfred Prufrock

- The Deeper Side of Prufrock from The Love Son of J. Alfred Prufrock Thomas Sterns Eliot wrote the poem "The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock" over a period of six years and published it circa 1917 at the ripe old age of twenty-nine. As his first published poem, 'Prufrock' revealed Eliot's original and highly developed style. Its startling jumps from rhetorical language to cliché, its indirect literary references, and its simultaneous humor and pessimism were quite new in English literature. (World Book, 236) Prufrock's quest for a life he cannot live and a question he has difficulty confronting is intriguingly played out in various aspects of his humanity....   [tags: Papers]
