The Subject of Choice in Shakespeare's Hamlet

- The Subject of Choice in Shakespeare's Hamlet It is said that life is nothing more than an endless stream of choices. Every day before work or school, we must all make choices—what to eat, what to wear, whether or not to bother with that homework assignment—some of which are trivial, while others have the direst consequences. In Shakespeare’s classic play Hamlet, the inner thoughts that accompany each decision, as well as the quest for what is actually truth and what is lie, is brought to light in Act 2.2....   [tags: Shakespeare Hamlet Essays]

Reciting Latin Verse

- Reciting Latin Verse One of the great difficulties in teaching ancient languages like Latin is the general lack of a spoken component. Whereas modern language students can reinforce the grammatical material they learn in a book through oral drills and conversational practice, students of Latin are faced with the prospect of studying a complex, inflected language entirely through the written word. While students still manage to learn the grammar and vocabulary, they often lack an appreciation for Latin as a living, breathing means of communication....   [tags: Graduate Admissions Essays]

The Road Not Taken And Stopping By Woods On A Snowy Evening - Analysis

- Robert Lee Frost (born in San Francisco, March 26, 1874 and died in Boston, January 29, 1963) was one of America's leading 20th-century poets and a four-time winner of the Pulitzer Prize. Although his verse forms are traditional, he was a pioneer in the interplay of rhythm and meter and in the poetic use of the vocabulary and inflections of everyday speech. His poetry is thus both traditional and experimental. After Frost’s father died in 1885, the family left California and settled in Massachusetts....   [tags: essays research papers]

William Shakespeare 's Sonnet 130

- In Shakespeare’s sonnet 130, the speaker ponders the beauty, or the lack thereof, of his lover. Throughout the sonnet, the speaker presents his lover as an unattractive mistress with displeasing features, but in fact, the speaker is ridiculing, through the use of vivid imagery, the conventions of love poems and the way woman are portrayed through the use of false comparisons. In the end, the speaker argues that his mistress may not be perfect, but in his eyes, her beauty is equal to any woman who is abundantly admired and put through the untrue comparison....   [tags: Poetic form, Poetry, Iambic pentameter, Sonnet]

Matthew Arnold versus Aristotle's Poetics

- The value of imitation: a vision of Aristotle's Poetics Aristotle wrote his Poetics thousands of years before Matthew Arnold's birth. His reasons for composing it were different from Arnold's reasons for using it as an element of his own poetic criticism. We can safely say that Arnold was inclined to use the Poetics as an inspiration for his own poetry, and as a cultural weapon in the fight for artistic and social renewal. Aristotle, by contrast, was more concerned with discovering general truths, and with formalising truths already known intuitively within his own society....   [tags: Aristotle Imitation Matthew Arnold Poetry Poem]

Literary Criticism : An Essential Tool For Successful Writing

- The idea of literary criticism was not utilized until Aristotle, renowned philosopher, initiated and supported the idea. Literary criticism still exists in modern day literature proving to be an essential tool for successful writing. The publication of The Poetics left many in the literary world unsatisfied and baffled by the idea that works of literature could even be criticized. The Poetics suggests that literary criticism does not only focus on the aesthetically pleasing side of writing, but also on the social and psychological purpose of a piece of writing, and by doing this Aristotle introduced the concept of catharsis to readers and writers....   [tags: Tragedy, Drama, Poetics, Aristotle]

Perrine initially defines poetry as "a kind of language that says more and says it more intensely than does ordinary language" (517). After defining literature as writing concerned with experience which allows us to imaginatively participate in it (518-19), Perrine adds, "poetry takes all life as its province" (522); no sharp distinction between poetry and other forms of imaginative literature exists (52...   [tags: Room of One's Own Essays]

Cognitions on Craft and Culture in "My Last Duchess"

- Loosely defined, poetry consists of compressed and regularly rhythmic statements. Thus the examination of meter, the means by which rhythm is measured and described, assumes great importance in the discussion of poetry. Scholars have attributed the discrepancy between our system of meter and the classical-Latin and Greek-system of meter to the Germanic origins of our language. Classical meter measured the length of the syllable. English language poetry, on the other hand, marks meter according to the pattern of "stressed and unstressed, or accented and unaccented syllables." Emphasis on particular syllables may come from the natural patterns of the words themselves or may come from the emph...   [tags: Poetry]
