William Blake's The Sick Rose - William Blake's The Sick Rose "The sick rose" is a very ambiguous poem and open to several interpretations, Blake uses lots of imagery and effective metaphors.

I think the poems about two lovers, one of which cheated on their partner and the other wants revenge. The poem is very contradictory, this is shown in the first line 'O Rose, thou art sick.' A rose usually symbolises beauty, romance and love, it?s a very feminine image but then it is said to be sick so we instantly sense something is wrong....   [tags: Blake Poetry Poem Sick Rose Essays] 619 words

Bitter Imagery in Hamlet - Bitter Imagery in Hamlet In Hamlet, imagery of disease, poison and decay, are used by Shakespeare for a purpose. The descriptions of disease, poison, and decay help us understand the bitter relationships that exist in the play and Hamlet’s own cynicism.

The resentful relationship that exists between Claudius and Hamlet is heightened with the use of imagery when Claudius asks about Polonius. Imagery enhances Claudius’ abhorrence of Hamlet....   [tags: GCSE English Literature Coursework] 958 words

Imperfection and Love in Blake’s ‘The Sick Rose’ and H.D.’s ‘Sea Rose’ - William Blake’s poem ‘The Sick Rose’ and H.D.’s poem ‘Sea Rose’ both deal with the imagery of a flawed rose, yet their imperfections arise from different origins.

In contrast to this, H.D.’s poem examines the sea rose’s weakness with respect to the ordinary rose, yet these shortcomings of the rose are a product of nature rather then the rose’s own....   [tags: literary and poetic analysis]

Effects Of Overfishing Atlantic Cod on East Coast Ecosystems - ...
