Comparing and Contrasting Ozymandias and Saddam

- The poem “Ozymandias”, is a poem based around the fall of power and is written as a short and rhyming story which is written to show how nothing is permanent, nothing lasts forever. The article on "Saddam" is much of the same as his legacy is literally been torn down in the form of his statue. “Ozymandias” is a sonnet, with fourteen lines. Although it doesn't have a simple rhyme scheme or punctuation. Rhyme is partially present in the poem, but no clear rhyme scheme is used and this makes the reader think that something is out of order....   [tags: poem, power, statue]

An Analysis of Adam’s Song

- An Analysis of Adam’s Song      Bob McKenty suggests in the poem "Adam's Song" that life is not a stationary event, it is forever changing and that in order to handle those changes humor serves as a good buffer.

The first couplet of the poem is iambic tetrameter and expresses a sentimental, romantic and lyrical tone. The speaker in the poem at this point could be described as a possibly young and naive lover....   [tags: Adam’s Song]

God's Silence in Anthony Hecht's The Fire Sermon and George Herbert's DenialL

- ... One such difference between “Deniall” and “The Fire Sermon” appears in the last stanza. Unlike Hebert, Hecht chooses not to finish the rhyme sequence, and the musical suspension is not resolved. On this alteration, Peter Sacks writes, “Hecht breaks open the wounds of the earlier poem, revives its greatest pain, then leaves it unredressed. By this, he draws attention both to the unavailability of Herbert’s prospective consolation, and to the inefficacy of a merely formal renewal, however virtuosic, of Herbert’s poetic artistry alone” (Sacks, 41)....   [tags: English poetry analysis]

Various Attempts to Translate Dante's Divine Comedy

- Throughout the past two hundred years, many linguists have attempted to translate Dante Alighieri's Divine Comedy into English. While all have been successful in conveying the general meaning of various passages, diction and wordiness have varied wildly; no two translations are identical. This can be attributed to two factors: normal translational variation and the intent of the linguist. Taking both of these into account, John Ciardi's 1954 translation is far superior to the others. Unlike previous literary works, The Comedy (divine was added to the title some two hundred years after Dante), written between 1307 and 1320, was originally published in vernacular Italian....   [tags: Linguistics]

The use of cumulatively descriptive words was confusing. I had to slow down to absorb each new definition and reconcile it to each preceding definition.
