Poor Clare Life Today

- The Poor Clares belong to the Order of Saint Clare, which originally used to be called the Order of Poor Ladies. They were the second Franciscan Order to be established. Poor Clare life today has similarities of how it was back in 1212, but it also has some minor differences. They have a strict schedule that they abided by while also still following the powerful mission that the Poor Clares founded. Poor Clare life today is entirely dedicated to God, just as it was back then. Saint Clare was born in 1193 in Assisi into nobility....   [tags: order of Saint Clare, Order of Poor Ladies]

John Clare and the Ubiquitous Editor

- John Clare and the Ubiquitous Editor Editors have always played an important and powerful role in the works of John Clare, from Clare’s own time until the present. An Invite to Eternity presents a model of that relationship between text and editor in microcosm, from its composition inside the walls of a mental institution to its transcription by an asylum attendant, to its early publication and its modern re-presentation today. Written in the 1840s, no extant manuscript of the poem exists in Clare’s own hand and each version of the poem is inflected by its editor in different but always significant ways....   [tags: Clare Poet Poem Poetic Essays]

First Love by John Clare

- First Love by John Clare How do different poets convey the idea of Love. “First Love” by John Clare was written in the 19th century. It is a poem about how the poet had fallen in love but it turned out it was unrequited. Whereas “Song” by W.H.Auden written in the 20th century, is a poem about how someone has been in love but then lost them to death. They are both quite similar in the fact that they are both about loving someone but not being able to have them. However they are different because “Song” is about two people having been in love and then losing it, rather than “First Love” in which the love is unrequited, and not being fulfilled....   [tags: First Love John Clare Poems Poetry Essays]

Audience and Expectation in John Clare’s An Invite to Eternity

- Audience and Expectation in John Clare’s An Invite to Eternity Although John Clare’s “An Invite to Eternity” appears to be a direct address to an unknown and anonymous “maiden,” in reality the poem is a much more complex appeal to the reader, which takes on the guise of traditional love poetry only to subvert it. In many ways, Clare’s poem seems to emulate and echo more classical poems such as Marlowe’s “The Passionate Shepherd to His Love” in its direct entreaty to a young lover. However, unlike that earlier poem, Clare’s offers his “sweet maid” a less than appealing prospect for future life, presenting her with an “eternity” filled with apocalyptic landscapes and almost monumental huma...   [tags: John Clare Invite Eternity Papers]

The story of Clare Soap and Chemical

- One of the stories going on in the book is the history of Clare Soap and Chemical. This company started back when the United States was not yet a country. A man named Jephthah Clare migrated to the New World. The company started off very small and grew to the international size. There were three brothers that really started the business. This story was solely historical, which made it less interesting. I found myself drifting off during these sections of the book. One part that really caught my attention was when Clare was trying to bring up the sales of one of their bar soaps and so they started a contest....   [tags: essays research papers]
