    Most children who have grown up in an American household have at one point in their lives looked up to sports figures as heroes. Whether it was your grandfather telling his stories of watching Babe Ruth become a legend, your father’s stories of Mickey Mantle and the legendary Yankee teams of the 1950’s and 1960’s, or your own memory of Mark McGwire and Sammy Sosa chasing the home run record, the feeling of wholesomeness that baseball provides has always found its way into many people’s hearts.

    Tuwhare* Hone Tuwhare uses symbols and figurative language to develop themes in his poetry. Tuwhare’s strength is his ability to use effective imagery and symbols to develop persistent ideas that, in the poetry I studied this year, relate to the purity and beauty of natural things. Rain, an apostrophe to a “rain god”, and No Ordinary Sun, another apostrophe to a tree and Tuwhare’s protest against nuclear weapons, reflect ideas about nature that are persistent in many of Tuwhare’s works. In No Ordinary

Finally, the pouring water re-iteratres this sense of purity and nature; the waterfall-like motion generates feelings of tranquility and harmony. (The text found in the advertisement supports these sentiments of purity, carlessness ["allergy tested" = worry free] and nature, and for the purpose of my examination require no further mention.)

    longer his decision whether to not go further in the cave. From here on, fate takes control of his life. The only character that has gained a form of justice from this encounter is Diana. By disposing of Actaeon, she won back her purity- the essence of her virginity. This purity she had lost when Actaeon saw her exposed. Her only means of regaining her chastity is by ridding herself of Actaeon. In comparison, there is no justice in this tale for Actaeon. He was simply a victim of fate, which put him in

    relationship with God. From a broader view, many of the things the speakers learn can be applied to the relationship between God and the ordinary man. In "A Complaint to Her Lord in Her Loneliness," the speaker uses red and white to embody passion and purity. The two extremes are never reconciled, and, by the end of the poem, juxtaposed in their meanings. As the poem begins, the speaker prays to God, saying, "There is a rosebud on your altar / Which waits unopened. / Who knows if it is red or white?"
