    He drew himself back then, back when he was happy, back when his muse was with him. He drew until exhaustion took over. His vision began to fade as he fell unconscious, black seeping into his eyes until sight was obscured completely. This was when he was happy, when he was able to remember. It was hazy and foggy but at least she was there even if he was forgetting her face. She could never abandon him here. It was him and his muse, nobody and nothing could get in his way. With a final glance at

    Muse or Method? My eyes cast a casual glance towards the clock across the room as I sit back down at my desk. With caffeine reinforcements at hand, namely the signature red, white, and blue can of Diet Pepsi I just pulled from the fridge, I quickly put away the mound of books that has grown since I came in the room at 4:00. After making a hasty mental check to reassure myself I am prepared for the next day of class, I review my lesson plans one last time, sit back, relax, and ponder just exactly

    Ellen Olenska as a Mythological Muse in The Age of Innocence Long ago in ancient Greece, mythology was used to explain our world, our lives, and most importantly, our interpersonal relationships. Still today Greek mythology is infused into the literature of almost every influential and lasting author, one of the more effective authors being Edith Wharton, author of The Age of Innocence.

    invocation of a muse, the use of language to generate emotion, and the use of symbolism to impose some bigger picture. There is irony between the two as Pope uses negatively to embellish beauty and Leapor uses beauty and imagination to mask slavery. In Pope’s Windsor-Forest, following traditional heroic, the speaker invokes a muse: “Granville commands; your aid O Muses bring! / What Muse for Granville can refuse?” (Windsor-Forest 5-6). This invocation is interesting because the muse is commanded and

    William Shakespeare, are two of the most well known Shakespeare sonnets. Both are similar in theme, however, the two poems are very much contradictory in style, purpose, and the muse to who Shakespeare is writing. Both Sonnets have different styles. Sonnet 18 is a much more traditional poem, showing the reader a picture of his muse in the most divine way. Shakespeare uses a complex metaphor of comparing his subject to the summer, but at the same time making it easy to understand. The poet goes as traditional

    Sappho’s Tithonus poem bears an interesting duality of historical and literary relevance. Within this essay I focus on the relationship between Sappho and her audience as well as her use of myth, bearing in mind historical context and literary language, and structure. Sappho’s historical background is limited, with scant concrete evidence as to how her poems were performed, what her life was like or what type of relationship she had with her peers. The generally accepted theory is that her ‘circle’

    In the novels of De Stael and Constant, women are used as a foil to their male counterparts. Corrine and Ellenore as the main female characters can be seen to be muses but in different circumstances. Corrine’s portrayal of muse is closer to classical mythology whilst Ellenore’s muse seems to be darker and closer to a femme fatale figure. This can be explored in the descriptions of Corrine and Ellenore, their relations to the male protagonist and the portrayal of other women. Corrine and Ellenore
