Bukowski: Betting On The Muse

- The Language of Violence, Language of the Heart Our world is not a pleasant one. Our everyday lives are punctured with graphic images of sex, violence and apathy. Unfortunately, people tend to ignore the holes in the social fabric all around them. As Bukowski wrote the poems that were compiled into Betting on the Muse, he realized this, and incorporated it into his poetry. In his narrative works he creates a living, breathing world. He tends to concentrate on the low points of life, though. The world is a dark one, where personal rotting begins with an all-too-early maturation....   [tags: Poem Poetry Betting Muse Bukowski]

The Song, Uprising, by Muse

- I am a millennial, a person born between 1980 and 2000. Millennials are possibly the most influential generation or, what some people may refer to as, the chosen generation. Our influence has been illustrated by the impact we had in the election of President Barack Obama. Throughout the last year, my dad has encouraged me to study millennials because he has been spending many hours studying them, himself.

I mean it was Advanced Latin for Geeks, Bowling for Advanced Dorks, or this: The Creative Self. Even though I had always looked upon poetry as a non-serious art, a flaky girly thing to do, I had done my fair share of writing, mostly put into teenage angst ridden song lyrics, but still, how different could this be--I could probably just use my old songs and hand them in as new poetry....   [tags: narrative, descriptive]

Analysis Of Anne Bradstreet 's The Tenth Muse

- Stiff white collars, harsh black clothes, and rigid beliefs characterize descriptions of early-American Puritans in present-day literature and movies. However, stereotypes such as this rarely hold up under scrutiny of historical accounts and works of these early Puritans, such as the poems of Anne Bradstreet, showcase the complex, true nature of Puritan settlers. Published without her knowledge in 1650, Bradstreet’s The Tenth Muse paints a picture of a complex woman with conflicting values. In her poems, Bradstreet struggles with her conflicting views on gender roles, sexuality, and religion....   [tags: Gender, Woman, Puritan, Gender role]

Satiation in John Milton’s Paradise Lost and Margaret Cavendish’s Blazing World

- Satiation in John Milton’s Paradise Lost and Margaret Cavendish’s Blazing World Hell is huge but it isn’t big enough. Within the text of Paradise Lost by John Milton, it is, A universe of death, which God by curse Created evil, for evil only good,Where all life dies, death lives, and nature breeds,Perverse, all monstrous, all prodigious things,Abominable, inutterable, and worse… (II.622-6)There is no satiety in Hell. Eden, by comparison, is a relatively small place in Milton’s epic poem, but it seems to be an environment replete with satisfaction....   [tags: Paradise lost Blazing World]

Ligeia as a Triumph Over Patriarchy

- Ligeia as a Triumph Over Patriarchy         From the time that "Ligeia" was written, critics have searched for meaning within Poe's story of a beautiful woman who died and returned in another's body. While all critics have moved in different directions, many have arguably found an allegorical meaning behind the tale. Because many literary theories depend on each other, contemporary critics tend not to limit themselves to any single theory.

Epic Characteristics of Paradise Lost

- Epic Characteristics of Paradise Lost Paradise Lost is one of the finest examples of epic tradition in all of literature.

By knowing the background of epic characteristics and conventions, it is easy to trace their presence in Book I of Paradise Lost. One of the biggest questions that a reader must face is that of the hero; exactly who is the epic hero in the poem.

- ... The form deepens the meaning of the poem by demonstrating how situations become appalling, but you shouldn’t lose hope and with those problems you should encourage yourself to do better. That is why the form of the poem is shaped as wings. Another important device used in the poem is paradox.

Use of Heroism in Epic Poems found in The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald

- The development of a hero always follows the same type of pattern and structure in epic poems. This characterization of heroes as valiant figures and has progressed through time to create a solid reference point on what a true hero should be.
