... his poems was "Absalom and Achitophel." He wrote this while he was Poet Laureate, the national poet of a country (Hopkins 5). In this poem he described a political predicament that is described by characters from the Bible. He uses a vast amount of symbolism in the story. "Absalom and Architophel" represents his lifelong affinity for seeing the present in terms of the past (Miner 15). One of his most famous poems is "Mac Flecknoe." He destroys Thomas Shadwell by taking very crude and harsh blows on the man. However, Dryden refers to Shadwell's appearance to only imply that he is fat: "A Ton of Man in thy Large bulk is writ, but sure tho'rt but a kildrekin of wit" (Sherwood 7). There is n ...

... pecially detached from society and burdened by his awareness of it. He thinks "I should have been a pair of ragged claws/ Scuttling across the floors of silent seas." Eliot not only uses imagery here to create a picture of a headless crab scuttling around at the bottom of the ocean, but he uses the form of the poem itself to help emphasize his point here. The head is detached from the crab, and the lines are detached from the poem in their own stanza, much like Prufrock wishes his self-consciousness would just "detach" itself. This concept is echoed in the very next stanza when he says, "Though I have seen my head (grown slightly bald) brought in/ upon a platter,"(83), an allusion to the ...

- Sex And Teens - 1,458 words
Sex And Teens Sex, or the lack there of, will always be a topic among teens. Teens date, and teens have relationships. Most of these relationships will inevitably come to a point where one must chose whether to seize the moment and have sex with their partner, or they will set standards ahead of time saying they will not have sex until marriage. Every teen is either on one side of the fence or the other; they either will have premarital sex, or they will abstain. These two stances shed light on why sex is out of control today, what the world thinks about sex, and what religion says about sexual immorality. The facts are evident: teens have sex. It seems almost impossible to calculate the num ...

- The Pamphleteers Protestant Champion: Viewing Oliver Cromwell Through The Media Of His Day - 3,436 words
The Pamphleteers Protestant Champion: Viewing Oliver Cromwell Through the Media of his Day The years between 1640 and 1660 witnessed in England a greater outpouring of printed material than the country had seen since the first printing press had begun operating in the 1470s.1 The breakdown of government and Church censorship in the early 1640s was almost total until the mid-1650s when Oliver Cromwell as Lord Protector reimposed some controls. Not until the return of the Stuarts and their royal censors did the flow of pamphlets cease. This tumultuous period of English history therefore became a crowded arena for free expression of radical religious, social, and political ideas. This fact, cou ...

... Charles Is execution, he declared that much to Cromwell is due. He stepped out of obscurity to cast the kingdoms of old into another mold. In what battle of the Civil War were [Cromwells] not the deepest scars? asked the poet, who also admonished the Irish who see themselves in one year tamed by Cromwell. Marvell honored Cromwell for selflessly giving his victories to England: [He] forbears his fame to make it theirs: And has his sword and spoils ungirt, To lay them at the publics skirt. Finally, the author denigrated the rebellious Scots valor, as he unabashedly compared Cromwell to Caesar and predicted that the Scots will Shrink underneath the plaid [their kilts] in reaction to Cromwe ...
