  • Ode On A Grecian Urn - 1,536 words
    Ode On A Grecian Urn Ode on a Grecian Urn Summary In the first stanza, the speaker, standing before an ancient Grecian urn, addresses the urn, preoccupied with its depiction of pictures frozen in time. It is the still unravish'd bride of quietness, the foster-child of silence and slow time. He also describes the urn as a historian, which can tell a story. He wonders about the figures on the side of the urn, and asks what legend they depict, and where they are from.

What wild ecstasy? In the second sta ...

    Bartel By The Scrivener Hawthorne I began my Hawthorne reading task with The Birth-Mark. I picked this story because I am familiar with the Maypole of Merrymount and Young Goodman Brown, and I wanted to try something different. I was pleasantly surprised with The Birth-Mark, in my mind it far surpasses the latter two stories.

Men like Young Goodman Brown are everywhere in todays society, and, still, there are those who try and destroy that which they do not unde ...

  • Ode On A Grecian Urnjohn Keats - 447 words
    Ode On A Grecian Urn-John Keats Ode on a Grecian Urn-John Keats The second stanza in Keats Ode on a Grecian Urn begins with the statement, Heard melodies are sweet, but those unheard/Are sweeter. Keats views art as something that is eternal and lets you experience whats happening in the painting. While he cannot actually hear the music of the young mans pipes, he can just imagine how sweet the melody would sound. If one was to hear music played, it would only please him for the duration of the song, but in looking at a painting of a youth playing pipes one can take pleasure in it every time he looks at the painting. Of course, in Keats time there were no CDs or cassettes. In the same stanza, ...

  • 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.
