    Before one can discuss the eternity of God, he or she must understand what “eternity” means, but that also requires approaching it from the understanding of time. Aquinas argues that time refers to change in that it is the “numbering of before and after in change.” However, Aquinas is cautious to not place eternity as being somewhere. He is willing to connect eternity with time by declaring that anything that exists within eternity has neither a beginning nor an end. Eternity actually exists as an instantaneous

    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.

It puts a mirror in front of the world and presents an angle of an image that, though familiar, we have never seen or

    Lost for eternity I suddenly awoke to a loud bell followed by the thumping of 22 feet on hardwood. Instinctivly, I tried to leap to my feet, but fell down again. Then I remembered where I was.

    ‘proper noun.’ By capitalizing the first letter of certain words, Ginsberg gives a solid identity to intangible things and redefines their role in a corrupted society that has destroyed the “best minds” of his generation.
