  • Arcadia - 1,400 words
    Arcadia Throughout the play Arcadia by Tom Stoppard there is a distinct difference between the characters who have a science background and those who do not. One of the recurring themes is that those characters and actions of those characters which are against science often lead to conflict and disaster. Even those characters that are of logical thinking for the most part are prone to disaster when they let go of this rational thinking and give in to their irrational side. Bernard is a main character who is not a scientist and has basically no scientific background. From the moment he is introduced, he is portrayed as eccentric and odd. Here Bernard is described for the first time: Bernard, ...

  • Bram Stoker Report - 1,073 words
    ... ublishing house of Sampson, Lowe wrote to Stoker expressing interest in a collection of his stories. He published Under The Sun, a collection of children's stories in 1881. Many critics thought the book was unsuitable for children because of the dark, and macabre stories that were in it. One story tells how an orphan girl tries to warn the people of her town of an impending plague, portrayed as a ghost that loomed over the town. In 1883 Henry Irving took the entire production on tour to America. They traveled by train from New York to San Francisco and from New Orleans to Montreal never once canceling a performance. Their first tour of America was such a success they toured every year up ...

  • Democratic Outlaws - 1,100 words
    Democratic Outlaws DEMOCRATIC OUTLAWS ? Pirates, the outlaws of the sea. If like me, the first idea that comes to mind regarding pirates is a group of raiding and plundering individuals. This is due to today's society glamorizing the pirates as fascinating characters. Historically, not much written information has been left behind. The pirates did not leave ship logs or accounts of plunders, because it could be used to incriminate them. Society today has invented the pirates to fit a romantic mold. Therefore, we grew up thinking of treasure hunts, sea battles, sword fights and plank walkers, when in actuality the pirates of old were loathed by society. During the Golden Age of Piracy, during ...

  • Kubla Khan - 2,827 words
    Kubla Khan Kubla Khan If a man could pass thro' Paradise in a Dream, & have a flower presented to him as a pledge that his Soul had really been there, & found that flower in his hand when he awoke -- Aye! and what then? (CN, iii 4287) Kubla Khan is a fascinating and exasperating poem written by Samuel Taylor Coleridge (. Almost everyone who has read it, has been charmed by its magic. It must surely be true that no poem of comparable length in English or any other language has been the subject of so much critical commentary. Its fifty-four lines have spawned thousands of pages of discussion and analysis. Kubla Khan is the sole or a major subject in five book-length studies; close to 150 artic ...

  • Lord Byrons Darkness - 481 words
    Lord ByronS Darkness "Darkness": An Outlook Into Time Lord Byron's "Darkness" illustrates a dark and pessimistic outlook for the world as we know it. The world loses all sense of hope and is left with only despair and darkness after the loss of the provider of thought and hope-sunlight. With the extinction of sunlight comes the destruction of social classes due to inevitable fear of death, and, as a result, all that is left is chaos. The psychological mind drastically changes its mannerisms and mode of thinking when faced with life and death situations. In the solitude of pitch-black infinite space, "men forgot their passions"-all values were lost, hopes and goals were put on hold, and only ...

  • Mary Shelley - 1,818 words
    Mary Shelley Mary Shelley and Her Yearning for Knowledge Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley, was the daughter of the radical feminist, Mary Wollstonecraft, and the political philosopher, William Godwin, and the wife of the Romantic poet, Percy Bysshe Shelley. Through these familial affiliations, she was also acquainted with Lord Byron Samuel T. Coleridge, and other literary figures such as Charles and Mary Lamb. Surrounded by such influential literary and political figures of the Romantic Age, it is not surprising that as an adolescent, at the age of 19, she wrote Frankenstein. Though critically a failure, (British Critic, 1818 and Monthly Review, 1818) the novel has never been out of print and has ...

  • Mary Shelley And Frankenstein - 1,744 words
    Mary Shelley And Frankenstein Godwin Shelley was the only daughter of William Godwin and Mary Wollenstonecraft, a quite dynamic pair during their time. Mary Shelley is best known for her novel Frankenstein: or The Modern Prometheus, which has transcended the Gothic and horror genres that now has been adapted to plays, movies, and sequels. Her life though scattered with tragedies and disgrace, was one of great passion and poetry, which I find quite fascinating, but not desirable. Shelleys other literary works were mildly successful their time, but are little known today. Her reputation rests, however, on what she once called her "Hideous Progeny," Frankenstein. To understand her writing you m ...

  • Shakespeares Poems - 876 words
    Shakespeare`s Poems Time has seen an infinite amount of beauty in its long existence. Nature has produced so many wonderful scenes and objects that we cannot collect it all even in one life. We ourselves are keepers of such beauty and intrigue that poets and other writers have captured our essence in prose. Whether its beauty that is skin deep or the beauty of a face that makes you look twice, what attracts us is not always what attracts your neighbor. Shakespeares, "My Mistress Eyes Are Nothing Like the Sun," and Lord Byrons, "She Walks in Beauty," are the epitome of what men and women long for. Although different in their interpretations of beauty, they hold true to the meaning of beauty, ...

  • She Walks In Beauty - 959 words
    "She Walks in Beauty" George Gordon Noel Byron's poem titled, "She Walks in Beauty," plainly put, is a love poem about a beautiful woman and all of her features. The poem follows a basic iambic tetrameter with an unaccented syllable followed by an accented syllable that allows for a rhythm to be set by the reader and can be clearly seen when one looks at a line: She walks / in beau / ty like / the night. T.S. Eliot, an American poet criticizes Byron's work by stating the poem, "needs to be read very rapidly because if one slows down the poetry vanishes and the rhyme is forced" (Eliot 224). With this rhythm the reader can, however, look deeper into the contents of Byron's poem and discover a ...

  • Swimming History - 848 words
    Swimming History Swimming was invented before recorded history. Humans discovered how to swim by accident. A person probably fell into the water and struggled to shore using a dog-paddle stroke. There was an Egyptian hieroglyph for swimming dating from 2500 BC. The ancient Greeks and Romans made swimming an important part of their military training programs. There have been known swimming contests that were organized in Japan as early as the 1st century BC. During the Middle Ages in Europe, swimming declined in popularity. People felt that the water was contaminated and a source of disease. Not everyone feared the water, however, Louis XI reportedly swam daily in the Seine. During the early ...

  • The Birth Of Computer Programming Ada Augusta Byron King, Countess Of Lovelace - 1,937 words
    The Birth Of Computer Programming (Ada Augusta Byron King, Countess Of Lovelace) In a world of men, for men, and made by men, there were a lucky few women who could stand up and be noticed. In the early nineteenth century, Lovelace Augusta Byron King, Countess of Lovelace, made her mark among the world of men that has influenced even today's world. She was the "Enchantress of Numbers" and the "Mother of Computer Programming."

  • The Byronic Hero - 652 words
    The Byronic Hero John Wilson wrote, "It is in the contrast between his august conceptions of man, and his contemptuous opinions of men, that much of the almost incomprehensible charm, and power, and enchantment, of his poetry consists." The abstruse "he" that Wilson refers to is Lord Byron. This famed poet developed an unmistakable style that both praises and admonishes man. Byron was not a misanthrope, but he never forgot mans faults. Through his poetry, Byron developed his views and expanded them. In fact, Byron developed a hero; a hero that would not back down to a challenge, rather, a hero that would stand up courageously and fight for what was good and true. In "The Destruction of Senna ...

  • The Development And Impact Of Romanricism On The Eupropean World - 1,632 words
    The Development And Impact Of Romanricism On The Eupropean World Romanticism, in a way, was a reaction against rigid Classicism, Rationalism, and Deism of the eighteenth century. Strongest in application between 1800 and 1850, the Romantic Movement differed from country to country and from romanticist to romanticist. Because it emphasized change it was an atmosphere in which events occurred and came to affect not only the way humans thought and expressed themselves, but also the way they lived socially and politically. (Abrams, M.H. Pg. 13) "Romanticism emphasized the individual, the subjective, the irrational, the imaginative, the personal, the spontaneous, the emotional, the visionary, and ...

  • William Blake - 1,375 words
    William Blake William Blake (1757-1827) William Blake wrote during the Romantic period which was a span between 1785 - 1830. Other great writers during this time were Mary Wollstonecraft, Coleridge, Wordsworth, and others. Some said that the Romantic period was the fairy tale way of writing through symbolism and allegory and also an age for individualism. A crucial point by Romantic theorist referred to the mind, emotions, and imagination of the poet (Abrams, et al 5). In comparison to Blakes Songs of Innocence and Songs of Experience Northrop Frys distinction between the imagined states of innocence and experience is stated as thus: world of innocence: unfallen world/ unified self/ integrat ...

My final, and best example of nature as a theme in Wordsworths work comes from the poem Tintern Abbey. It opens with the speaker declaring that five years have passed since he last visited the location and encountered its peaceful scenery. He examines the objects he has seen before, and describes their effect upon him: the steep and lofty cliffs (5) impress upon him thoughts of more deep seclusion (6). The speaker leans against a dark sycamore tree and looks upon the cottage and the orchard trees bearing unripe fruit. He sees the wreaths of smoke (17) rising up from cottage chimneys betwee ...
