  • Love Song Of J Alfred Prufrock Analysis - 668 words
    Love Song of J Alfred Prufrock - Analysis "The Love Song of J Alfred Prufrock" has some incredible and magical imagery, yet the individual images are not the guiding force or theme of the poem. The theme of the poem is Prufrock, split between two worlds, between a world of beauty and art, and one clear, cold, and calculated, "measured out with coffeespoons," and his indecision to reveal this split to another person. He begins by describing an evening, "like a patient etherized upon a table." This is his way of pointing out the beauty in the sky, with its millions of stars and special things, it really is quite tremendous but it's something we're used to, hence we've learnt to take it for gra ...

  • Love Song Of Prufrock - 1,013 words
    Love Song Of Prufrock In his poem "The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock," Eliot explores the timeless issues of love and self-awareness - popular themes in literature. However, through his use of Prufrock's profound self-consciousness he skews the reader's expectations of a "Love Song" and takes a serious perspective on the subject of love, which many authors do, but few can create characters as deep and multi-layered as Prufrock; probably the reason that this poem still remains, arguably, Eliot's most famous. The beginning of the poem is pre-empted by an excerpt from Dante's Inferno which Eliot uses to create the poem's serious tone, but also to begin his exploration of Prufrock's self-consc ...

    ... 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 ...

  • So Called Love Song - 1,405 words
    So Called Love Song The so-called Love Song The ironic character of The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock, an early poem by T.S. Eliot (1888-1965) in the form of a dramatic monologue, is introduced in its title. Eliot is talking, through his speaker, about the absence of love, and the poem, so far from being a song, is a meditation on the failure of romance. The opening image of evening (traditionally the time of love making) is disquieting, rather than consoling or seductive, and the evening becomes a patient (Spender 160): When the evening is spread out against the sky / Like a patient etherized upon a table (2-3). According to Berryman, with this line begins modern poetry (197). The urban l ...

  • The Love Song Of J Alfred Prufrock By Ts Elliot - 448 words
    The Love Song Of J. Alfred Prufrock By T.S. Elliot Nobody Can Hear Me In the poem "The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock," T. S. Elliot uses a vast amount of symbolism to depict the fantasy feelings of his character. Of the many he chooses, I feel the epigraph is the most important in setting the overall feeling of J. Alfred Prufrock. T. S. Elliot chose to take the lines, spoken by the character of Count Guido da Montefelltro from Dante's Inferno," and use them as the epigraph to his poem. In this story, Dante meets the punished Guido in the Eighth chasm of Hell. Guido explains that he is speaking freely to Dante only because he believes Dante is one of the dead who could never return to earth ...

  • Ts Eliots The Love Song Of J Alfred Prufrock - 325 words
    T.S. EliotS The Love Song Of J. Alfred Prufrock Philosophers recognize the harmony and duality of the universe with symbols like Ying and Yang. The title character in T.S. Eliot's poem, "The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock," has not. The poem is an internal monologue where Prufrock reveals himself as lonely and timid. Prufrock is a man in conflict with his duality, the society he has to live in, and the long lost dreams of his youth. Hot and cold, fire and water; duality is part of nature. Prufrock is not in harmony with his two sides. On the surface Prufrock is like a field mouse, frozen by fear who asks, "Do I dare? And Do I dare?" Inside is a tiger that knows there is time to murder and c ...

  • Aurally Alarming , Use Of Sound In Blue Velvet - 972 words
    Aurally Alarming , Use Of Sound In Blue Velvet Aurally Alarming With Blue Velvet, David Lynch did an effective job in dividing both popular and critical opinions about his odd piece of cinema. While some hail it as a masterpiece, others retain that it is pure perverse nonsense. Despite the initial shock of the overly violent sequences, Lynch's vivid revelation of baseness and depravity in small-town America makes its point clearly, if not bizarrely. One of the most obvious and effective ways by which the film's themes are conveyed is through an absolutely brilliant utilization of sound and score. Similar to how advertising companies pair food ads with love-scene type music, or make sock-pupp ...

    ... way (Acceptance). Eliot believed that poetry was the only way to bring the world together. He believed that through writing feeling and emotions people of all backgrounds and races could connect. Eliot thought that if people could connect on this emotional level the world would be a happier place. Another remarkable event was waiting just around the corner for Eliot. In 1956, he proposed to his secretary of eight years, Valerie Fletcher. They were married in January of 1957. Finally Eliot had a happy life. While talking to a friend about his new marriage, Eliot stated, I am the happiest man in the whole world (T.S.E.). His happy life was cut short, however. In 1962, he went into coma. He ...

  • Evolution And Darwinism - 1,387 words
    Evolution And Darwinism In The Origin of Species, Charles Darwin poetically entailed, There is grandeur in this view of life . . .. Personifying Nature as the ultimate breeder, Darwin infers and hypothesizes what is arguably the most fundamental and profound scientific manifesto that governs what we now know about modern science and the science of discovering our past. His two theories of Natural Selection and Sexual Selection effectively bridge the gap that his predecessors could not. These concepts are imperative as their implications paved the way for Darwin's explanation of Evolution. The term Survival of the Fittest has been made synonymous with Darwinian ideology, yet to fully understa ...

  • Hamlet: Method In The Madness - 1,761 words
    Hamlet: Method in the Madness Method in the Madness: Hamlet's Sanity Supported Through His Relation to Ophelia and Edgar's Relation to Lear In both Hamlet and King Lear, Shakespeare incorporates a theme of madness with two characters: one truly mad, and one only acting mad to serve a motive. The madness of Hamlet is frequently disputed. This paper argues that the contrapuntal character in each play, namely Ophelia in Hamlet and Edgar in King Lear, acts as a balancing argument to the other character's madness or sanity. King Lear's more decisive distinction between Lear's frailty of mind and Edgar's contrived madness works to better define the relationship between Ophelia's breakdown and Haml ...

  • Imagery - 2,396 words
    IMAGERY The term imagery has various applications. Generally, imagery includes all kinds of sense perception (not just visual pictures). In a more limited application, the term describes visible objects only. But the term is perhaps most commonly used to describe figurative language, which is as a theme in literature. An example is animal imagery in Othello When Iago tortures Othello with animal images of his wife's supposed infidelity, "were they as prime as goats, as hot as monkeys" (3.3.403), his description so overcomes the Moor that later, in greeting Lodovico, he suddenly blurts out, "Goats and monkeys!" (4.1.256). SIMILE A direct, expressed comparison between two things essentially un ...

    ... s for God and those who are loitering by the withered tree are for salvation, which never comes. Many critics have agreed that Godot does not necessarly mean God, merely the objective of our waiting- an event, a thing, a person, a death. Another basic existentialist theme on which Beckett reflects is the meaninglessness of time. Because past, present and future mean nothing, the play follows a cyclic pattern. Vladimir and Estragon returned to the same place each day to wait for Godot and encounter the same basic people each day. Godots messenger does not recognize Vladimir and Estragon from day to day. This suggests that the people we meet today are not the same as they were yesterday an ...

  • Music And Censorship - 1,884 words
    Music And Censorship In our society today, some musicians and their music drain and plague the moral and spiritual well-being of the people; therefore, censorship offers a necessary action that we must take to keep the world from becoming a land of decadence. The musicians lives are not examples for the children or the adults. The lyrics of many songs are not suitable for anyone. All types of music need some kind of censorship. Censorship makes a person realize that music is good for the heart. Censorship totally makes people act better, and when thinking better, this sustains a better society. The lives of some musicians contain types of anarchy and self-gratification. Once the musicians re ...

The band members, are Mike Herrera who plays bass and sings, Tom Wisniewski who plays guitar and Yuri Ruley plays drums. They played about 10 songs, all of which I knew. Some of their songs have to do with society problems through the eyes of a teenager. At the show, the first song they played was one of my favorite's, Teenage Politics. Some of the lyrics to this song are, No I'm not mad but I think they forget what it's like and how hard it is to be a teenager. This is a new day and age, we read a differen ...

  • On The Universality Of Poetry - 683 words
    On the Universality of Poetry Like any art form, poetry is considered universal. It ranks with music, dance, and fine arts as a form or process of expressing Man's thoughts and passions. Unlike other art forms, however, poetry -- and in fact literature -- has a peculiar characteristic. As a medium it uses language, and unlike other mediums -- like rocks, paints, beat -- language is not universal, it is cultural. Since culture varies according to geography, time, religion, and gender -- it is without doubt that there are multitudes of different languages. Thus poetry becomes cultural or non-universal in form, a characteristic that confines the production and reception of poetry to people that ...

Painters use paints and canvas as their medium, chefs use food for their delicacy, and musicians use the words and musical instruments to create the art of sound. Even within this, the terms of chief, painters, and musicians encompass many facets. For example, some chiefs specialize only in pastries, some painters only work with watercolor, or the in the instance of music, musicians who create rap music.

  • Rosencrantz And Guildenstern Are Dead - 684 words
    Rosencrantz And Guildenstern Are Dead In response to the bloody battles of World War I, the Theatre of the Absurd was born. Soldiers surrounded by death and destruction often found no other relief but to laugh at the absurdity of noble, but increasingly meaningless traditional rhetoric and patriotism. This laughter was a response to not only the absurdity of their situation, but also to the absurd responses of others to their situation. Out of this response grew what we know today as the Theatre of the Absurd. A classic example of a work from the Absurdist Theatre is a piece known as Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead. In this work, John Stoppard uses allusion to T.S. Eliot's poem, "The L ...
