explication of cummings' poem since feeling is first

- explication of e. e. cummings' poem since feeling is first       e. e. cummings' "since feeling is first" is about feeling (802).  This is immediately evident from the title and first line, which emphasize the word "feeling" in several different ways.  The stresses on "feel-" and "first," as well as the alliteration between those two words, make explicit their connection and importance, and the repetition of the same line in both title and first line serves to enhance the effect.       The meaning of the first line is clear, but because of cummings' characteristic absence of punctuation and capitalization as well as sentence structure, the next few lines are more ambiguous.  The first t...   [tags: since feeling is first]

Emotion and Feeling in Lord Byron's Poetry

- The genre of poetry itself produces connotations based around raw emotions, especially when considering poetry from the Romanticism era. Furthermore, poetry which is based on emotions (whether negative or positive) is what makes it successful in evoking a more personal response from the reader.

Either enrolling in a new school, interviewing for a job, or just simply going to a party and meeting new people who happen to be at the party as well; our lives are filled with first encounters and we develop impressions about those people we encounter. To simplify the understanding a first impression is “like a Polaroid picture” (Flora,2004). They are brief snapshots that we use to gain physical knowledge about the new people we make....   [tags: Psychology]

Early College Academy at Southridge (ECAS) was a school made up of portables in an open and barely protected area. My first day of high school was the worst; it rained, and normal high schools don’t fret over such little matters but my high school didn’t have a roof, which meant that all my brand new school supplies and new clothes got soaked and ruined before I really got to use them...   [tags: High school, University, College]

So I wonder if that’s what holds us back from praying more. Fear of disappointment, fear of not getting what seems so obviously a good thing, fear that God will let us down, fear that our prayers are falling on deaf ears. Fear that God will make us mature in our faith. Fear of lots of things.

- The First Amendment "I'll need to see that before it goes to press." Almost every journalism student in America hears these ten inevitable words before the distribution of their school's newspapers. Recently, student journalists have been heavily censored due to the 1988 Hazelwood v. Kuhlmeier Supreme Court decision. One of the major consequences of this decision was that since the Supreme Court felt that the First Amendment, stating that, "Congress shall make no law…abridging the freedom of speech or of the press," (Amendment I, A6), was no longer sufficient to protect student journalists, the states would have to figure out a solution themselves (Foerstel 217)....   [tags: Papers]
