- Faerie Queen And Love - 621 words
Faerie Queen And Love As we have discussed in class, there are several different types of love. And in identifying the perils of "inventing" love in The Faerie Queen, many of these kinds of love can be related. In addition to the romantic love that Spencer and the Redcrosse Knight invent, one also must consider the love for faith and God. Throughout the book, most of the problems that Spencer and the Redcrosse night with inventing love stem from the fact that they are doing it in a physical sense. The Knights service to a lady can be looked at as nothing more than submission to her desires. There is always a hidden anxiety inside in proving oneself to be a worthy knight, driven by male ego. ...

- Edmund Spenser Vs Virgil And Ariosto - 1,825 words
Edmund Spenser Vs. Virgil And Ariosto Edmund Spenser vs. Virgil and Ariosto Some scholars believe Spenser did not have sufficient education to compose a work with as much complexity as The Faerie Queene, while others are still "extolling him as one of the most learned men of his time" (587). Scholar Douglas Bush agrees, "scholars now speak less certainly that they once did of his familiarity with ancient literature" (587). In contrast, Meritt Hughes "finds no evidence that Spenser derived any element of his poetry from any Greek Romance" (587). Several questions still remain unanswered: Was Edmund Spenser as "divinely inspired" to write The Faerie Queene as Virgil and Ariosto were in their w ...

- Midsummer Nights Dream - 898 words
Midsummer Night's Dream More strange than true. I never may believe These antic fables nor these fairy toys. Lovers and madmen have such seething brains, Such shaping fantasies, that apprehend More than cool reason ever comprehends. The lunatic, the lover, and the poet Are of imagination all compact. One sees more devils than vast hell can hold: That is the madman. The lover, all as frantic Sees Helen's beauty in a brow of Egypt. The poet's eye, in a fine frenzy rolling, Doth glance from heaven to earth, from earth to heaven And as imagination bodies forth The forms of things unknown, the poet's pen Turns them to shapes, and gives to airy nothing A local habitation and a name. Such tricks ha ...

- Renaissance - 574 words
Renaissance When the Renaissance crept into the world's social senses people were moved. However, when the Renaissance began to affect the literature of the sixteenth century, the world was changed forever. The Renaissance, meaning a "re-birth," was a time of many changes. These changes wrought pandemonium among the civilized people of earth. There was a recovery and discovery of medieval texts in which scholars were deeply impressed by. Those in love with the arts and literature now had more choices to view and read. There was an outpour of those individuals attempting to create paintings that exemplified the feelings that saturated the minds of the brilliant scholars. Most importantly, how ...

- Separate Peace By John Knowels - 1,089 words
Separate Peace By John Knowels Dealing with enemies has been a problem ever since the beginning of time. In A Separate Peace by John Knowels, the value of dealing with your feelings and dealing with your enemies is shown by Gene Forester, a student in Devon during World War 2 dealing with few human enemies, but his emotions create a nemesis far greater than any human enemy. "I never killed anybody," Gene had commented later in his adulthood, "And I never developed an intense level of hatred for the enemy. Because my war ended before I ever put on a uniform; I was on active duty all my time at Devon; I killed my enemy there." Now about the enemies that Gene had put into his own life. Gene had ...

- Star Wars - 3,479 words
... d Han had to cope with a space station full of enemy soldiers, but the rescue is eclipsed by Luke's destruction of the Death Star at the end of the movie. This was presumably done because A New Hope was an action movie, which as a rule needs to present a final conflict at the conclusion rather than the climax. Therefore, Luke's Supreme Ordeal, the destruction of the Death Star, is separate from his prize, the rescue of Princess Leia. Upon entering the Land of Enchantment, the Hero is typically left to his own devices to complete his quest. If the Hero has learned his lessons well and fulfilled his role, he will do well and succeed. If not, his quest is doomed to fail. The Greek Hero Orph ...

- Watership Down By Richard Adams - 986 words
Watership Down By Richard Adams The novel Watership Down by Richard Adams, like Edmund Spencers The Faerie Queene, is an allegory. Watership Down also embodies many romantic ideas. Fiver, a rabbit who sees visions from Frith, represents the turn toward imagination that occurred in the Romantic period. The rabbits in the novel also value freedom and rebellion against tyranny, two important Romantic ideas. Many of the rabbits that left the Sandleford warren were unhappy with authority there, and the Watership Down warren helped the rebellion against Efrafa. Hyzenthlay, a doe in Efrafa, questions authority and longs for freedom from tyranny. She embodies the individualism valued in the Romantic ...
