Marilyn Hacker’s Selected Poems 1965-1990

- Marilyn Hacker’s Selected Poems 1965-1990 Without question, I found Selected Poems to be the most challenging book we've read for this class. Strangely enough, in my rush to finish this book, I remained certain that somewhere in this often unsettling collection Marilyn Hacker would find a way to touch a cord or demand a response. When I reached Towards Autumn, the picture finally cleared and crystallized, and I realized I had arrived. Towards Autumn Thinking of her's (the daughter) like thinking of a lover I hope will someday grow to be a friend....   [tags: Hacker Selected Poems 1965-1990]

Marilyn Hacker's Mother-Daughter Relationship Exposed in Selected Poems 1965-1990

- Marilyn Hacker's Mother-Daughter Relationship Exposed in Selected Poems 1965-1990 If Selected Poems 1965-1990 can be taken as an evenly representative sample of Marilyn Hacker's work, motherhood does not seem to be the single central focus of her life or her work. Hacker has quite a few poems about or for her daughter Iva, and Iva is mentioned in many other poems, yet much of Hacker's work focuses on other aspects of her life and interests. The fact that Hacker does not focus exclusively on her motherhood seems important in and of itself....   [tags: Hacker Selected Poems 1965-1990]

Analysis of Fifteen to Eighteen from Marilyn Hacker’s Selected Poems

- Analysis of Fifteen to Eighteen from Marilyn Hacker’s Selected Poems In the poem 'Fifteen to Eighteen', Marilyn Hacker uses the rebellious years of adolescence to analyze the effects an illness can have on the relationship and family roles for both parent and child. Diabetes puts the mother and daughter in opposite roles than are traditionally seen at this age. The illness which occurs at least over the last four years of this girl's childhood forces her to grow up prematurely, take on some of the mother roles, and suffer the sacrifices that accompany it....   [tags: Hacker Selected Poems 1965-1990]

Islamic Feminism in Mohja Kahf's Selected Poems

- As an Arab American, a Muslim and a woman writer, Mohja Kahf challenges the stereotypes and misrepresentation of Arab and Muslim women. Her style is always marked by humor, sarcasm, anger and confrontation. “The Marvelous Women,” “The Woman Dear to Herself,” “Hijab Scene #7” and “Hijab Scene #5” are examples of Kahf’s anger of stereotypes about Muslim women and her attempts to fight in order to eradicate them, in addition to her encouragement to women who help her and fight for their rights.

Islamic Feminism in Mohja Kahf’s Selected Poems

- Mohja Kahf, a Syrian American poet, novelist and scholar, lives in America where Muslim Arab women are described as exotic, oppressed, inferior to men, and as Evelyn Shakir says: According to popular belief, all Arab women can be divided into two categories. Either they are shadowy nonentities, swathed in black from head to foot, or they are belly dancers—seductive, provocative, and privy to exotic secrets of lovemaking. The two images, of course, are finally identical, adding up to a statement that all Arab women are, in one sense or another, men's instruments or slaves....   [tags: nonentis, belly dancers, stereotypes]

Ideas of Gender and Domesticity in Leaves of Grass and Selected Emily Dickinson Poems

- Ideas of Gender and Domesticity in Leaves of Grass and Selected Emily Dickinson Poems Though both Walt Whitman and Emily Dickinson were highly self-reliant and individualistic, he found importance in the “frontiers” and believed the soul was only attainable through a physical connection with nature, whereas she chose to isolate and seclude herself from her community in order to focus solely on her writing. In this analysis, I will look at excerpts from Walt Whitman’s Leaves of Grass and Emily Dickinson’s poems, “I’m ‘wife’— I’ve finished that”, “What mystery pervades a well!” and “I’ll tell you how the sun rose”, to contrast their representations of self-realization and domesticity and the...   [tags: Dickingson, Whitman, Poetry]

Samuel Taylor Coleridge 's Poetry : Conversational Poems And Poems Of Imagination

- Exploring Samuel Taylor Coleridge’s Poetry: Conversational Poems and Poems of Imagination To say Samuel Taylor Coleridge is a brilliant and proficient poet would be an understatement. His creativity, imagination, and prose are beyond his time. His conversational poems contain elements of universality with a focus on nature and your place within the natural word. His poems of imagination on the other hand explore depths of creativity that are powerful and dream-like.

Mortailty and Eternity in Emily Dickinson Poems

- Emily Dickinson is the epitome of the modern poet. Her poetry breaks from the traditional style with dashes to separate ideas. Dickinson, also, challenged the religious belief of her time. Growing up as a Puritan in Massachusetts, Emily Dickinson knew the bible, yet as an adult, she questioned that belief. Many of her poems seem focused on death; death of the body, death of the soul, death of the mind. Why was she so intrigued with death. The poems that embody this theme are: “Success is counted sweetest” (#112), “Safe in the Alabaster Chambers” (#124), “I like a look of Agony” (#339), “I felt a funeral in my brain” (#340), “Because I could not stop for death” (#479), and “I heard a Fly buzz...   [tags: Literary Analysis ]

The Range of Feelings Associated with Love in Catullus and Lesbia' Poems

- The Range of Feelings Associated with Love in Catullus and Lesbia' Poems Of Catullus’s poems, the Lesbia poems are the most memorable, particularly as they contain such a wide range of feelings and emotions. Whilst we do not know what order the poems were written in, it is tempting to arrange them in a progression from constant love, to confusion and despair and finally hatred. Poem 87 appears to be at the beginning of the relationship between Catullus and Lesbia. The symmetry of the couplets beginning “nulla” and ending with “mea est” emphasizes the idea that no one loves Lesbia as much as Catullus....   [tags: Papers]
