  • George Eliot: History And Style - 471 words
    George Eliot: History And Style One of the most astounding facts about George Eliot is that he is actually a woman, whose real name is Marian Evans. She was born during the era of Victorian literature, and she grew up with a wide variety of people, including her family, who have all played an influential role in her life. Besides people and her family, her love life was also a very influential factor in her style of writing and the content of her works. This can be seen in works like Adam Bede, The Mill on the Floss, Middlemarch, and Scenes of Clerical Life. These works reflect her Victorian style and influence on society. George Eliot, a writing pen name, was born on November 22, 1818 under ...

    Hamlet And Eliot Over time many opinions have been formed about William Shakespeares work Hamlet. Yet through the quagmire of confusion surrounding the tragedy none have spoken than T.S. Eliot.

  • Hollow Men By Eliot - 390 words
    Hollow Men By Eliot In T.S. Eliot's poem The Hollow Men, T.S. Eliot contrasts his straw-filled hollow men with the "lost violent souls" of Mr. Kurtz and Guy Fawkes. Mr. Kurtz is a character in Joseph Conrad's Heart of Darkness. T.S. Eliot is saying that it is better to have met death and to have strong opinions than to sit idly and remain stagnant. Both Eliot and Conrad are portraying the general society to be decaying. The hollow mean are in a state of stagnation. They can neither choose life nor death and are therefore damned to a life where they will waste away to nothing. The hollow men are said to live in a gray, bleak wasteland full of cactus. This idea contrasts with Conrad's use of s ...

  • The Waste Land By Ts Eliot - 809 words
    The Waste Land By T.S. Eliot SPEECH/LANGUAGE (I) In the poem, The Waste Land, T. S. Eliot gives a primarily positive connotation by using the theme of speech, language, and failure of speech.

  • Thomas Eliot - 1,393 words
    Thomas Eliot Thomas Sterns Eliot wrote the poem "The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock" over a period of six years and published it circa 1917 at the ripe old age of twenty-nine. As his first published poem, Prufrock revealed Eliots original and highly developed style. Its startling jumps from rhetorical language to clich, its indirect literary references, and its simultaneous humor and pessimism were quite new in English literature. (World Book, 236) Prufrocks quest for a life he cannot live and a question he has difficulty confronting is intriguingly played out in various aspects of his humanity. He is doing battle in all aspects of his personality, which establishes him as a neurotic charac ...

  • Ts Eliot Ezra Pound Comparison - 713 words
    Ts Eliot - Ezra Pound Comparison The essay "Tradition and the Individual Talent" by T. S. Eliot incorporates many ideas sympathetic to those found in Pound's poetry, thus allowing Pound to be comprehended more completely by one who has first read Eliot's essay. If one were to read Eliot's essay, he could in turn pick up ideas central to understanding Pound's poetry, such as: the importance of tradition and the classics to poetry, the reader's knowledge of great works of the past, and that an authors poems often consist of ideas and feelings foreign to them. If one were to keep these general ideas in his mind while reading Pound's poems, his understanding would be much more complete, and woul ...

Both Prufrock and Preludes are based in the same rootless world of sordid tedium. In Prufrock Eliot is conveying a theme a strong theme and is based heavily in the Persona of Prufrock himself. Preludes is a poem of changing moods, some subtle, some profound but this time conveyed primarily through diction and repetition. One theme of Eliots, The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock, is the exposure of the modern individuals inability and refusal to address inadequacies that he sees in both him and his society. Two ways Eliot conveys his theme is through th ...

    America... land of the free and home of the brave; the utopian society which every European citizen desired to be a part of in the 18th and 19th centuries. The revolutionary ideas of The Age of Enlightenment such as democracy and universal male suffrage were finally becoming a reality to the philosophers and scholars that so elegantly dreamt of them. America was a playground for the ideas of these enlightened men. To Europeans, and the world for that matter, America had become a kind of mirage, an idealistic version of society, a place of open opportunities. Where else on earth could a man like J. D. Rockefeller rise from the streets to one of the richest men of his time? America stood for i ...

When Tom and Huck take the candles from Miss Watson, "Tom laid five cents on the table for pay" where Huck would have simply "borrowed" them (HF 6). This shows the striking contrast of the two characters and their views of the world. Tom Sawyer also represents the cruelties and evils that characters such as Pap and the Grangerfords displayed. In his discussion of the cruelties of the society that Huck finds himself in, Cox states that "all the other cruelties are committed for some reason for honor, m ...

  • Bananafish - 713 words
    Bananafish Just why did Seymour kill himself Picture walking into a hotel room and finding a man dead on a bed. Upon closer inspection it becomes obvious that he has supposedly taken his own life with the gun that lay beside him. In talking to his wife who was asleep on the bed next to him when this incident occurred, it is learned that he just walked in the door and shot himself late the previous night. Out of the many questions that could be asked from this story, I believe that it is probably extremely important to consider why the main character, Seymour Glass, decided to commit suicide. What I believe to be the reason for Seymours suicide has two basic components: the spiritual depravit ...

    British In 19th The nineteenth (19th) century was a period of great change and accompanying social unrest in the British Isles. Most outstanding among the changes was the industrial revolution.

The industrial revolution combined with the expansion of the British Empire made the United Kingdom, the richest and most powerful country in the world.

  • Carson Mccullers - 1,564 words
    Carson McCullers "With poignant insight and compassion Carson McCullers (1917-1967) wrote of human loneliness, unfulfilled love, and the frailty of the human heart." Of all the characters in the work of Carson McCullers, the one who seemed to her family and friends to be most like the author herself was Frankie Addams: the vulnerable, exasperating, and endearing adolescent of The Member of the Wedding who was looking for the "we of me." However, Carson once said that was, or became in the process of writing, all the characters in her work. This is probable true of most real writers who often with pain draw from their unconscious what the rest of us would just as soon keep hidden from ourselv ...
