  • Analysis Of The Poem: The Fly - 637 words
    Analysis of the Poem: The Fly In the poem The Fly, much vivid imagery is employed in creating a graphic depiction of the housefly as the filthy, disease ridden scourge of man that it is. The author, having obviously spent a great deal of time observing and noting the characteristics of the housefly, creates a vivid summation of his observations and feelings about his subject. The descriptions and non-subtle metaphors are unique, to say the least. While the subject matter may seem too trivial to allow the poem to be taken seriously, it is nevertheless deserving of study. This poem shows a great deal of imagination on the part of the author. Few people would undertake such a detailed literal s ...

  • Babi Yar Analysis Of The Poem - 998 words
    Babi Yar - Analysis of the Poem Yevtushenko speaks in first person throughout the poem. This creates the tone of him being in the shoes of the Jews. As he says in lines 63-64, "No Jewish blood is mixed in mine, but let me be a Jew . . . " He writes the poem to evoke compassion for the Jews and make others aware of their hardships and injustices. "Only then can I call myself Russian." (lines 66-67). The poet writes of a future time when the Russian people realize that the Jews are people as well accept them as such. If you hate the Jews, he asks, why not hate me as well? True peace and unity will only occur when they have accepted everyone, including the Jews. Stanza I describes the forest of ...

  • Commentary On The Poem Of The Cid - 1,711 words
    Commentary On The Poem Of The Cid Chris Irwin Commentary on Poem of the Cid Poetry played a vital role in the dissemination of information during the Crusade period. It provided a compact, easily memorized way of spreading news in a time bereft of the benefit of mass printing. According to Michael Routledge, who penned a chapter on Crusade songs and poetry in The Oxford Illustrated History of the Crusades, poetry was not only a way of recording and spreading news of current events, but also served to record and extoll the virtues and values of the ruling Medieval aristocracy. These values included commitment to one's lord, and an acceptance of the feudal duties of auxilium (armed help in tim ...

  • Dickinsons Poem Because I Could Not Stop For Death - 938 words
    Dickinson's Poem Because I Could Not Stop For Death Thantos, Charon, Death. No matter what we call it, the idea that is death is always with us. It causes great pain, but also inspires. Dickinson's poem Because I Could Not Stop for Death is, obviously enough, about death. But rather than being sad about it, she wants the reader to view death as being an inevitable change, rather than an end to existence. By personifying death, she makes it seem relaxing and serene. She also adds to this effect by using vivid imagery and metaphors, as well as rhythm, to create a poem that plays out in the reader's mind like a movie, due also in part to the dramatic imagery. One of the major parts of this poem ...

  • Discuss The Meaning Of The Poem - 320 words
    Discuss The Meaning Of The Poem ^/^/ /^ ^/^ /^ /^/^ /^ ^/^/ /^ (Iambic dimeter usually expresses energetic position of author) This simple metrical pattern gives an illusion of simplicity of this poem. However, this simplicity isnt that simple as reader can think. The Red Wheelbarrow is the poem about life as a whole even though there is no people, action, and movement. All the reader has is somebody who observes surroundings without any conclusion. The meaninglessness of the content, in the first view, confuses readers and that stimulates them to think about possible meanings more deeply. Stressful words upon, barrow, water, chickens are archetypal so the special line stresses them out. Th ...

  • Emily Dickinson 2 Poem Comparison - 731 words
    Emily Dickinson 2 Poem Comparison Emily Dickinson's poems, Because I Could Not Stop For Death and I Heard A Fly Buzz-When I Died, are both about one of life's few certainties, death. However, that is where the similarities end. Although Dickinson wrote both poems, their ideas about what lies after death differ. In one, there appears to be life after death, but in the other there is nothing. A number of clues in each piece help to determine which poem believes in what. The clues in I heard a Fly buzz-when I died, point to a disbelief in an afterlife. In this poem, a woman is lying in bed with her family or friends standing all around waiting for her to die. While the family is waiting for her ...

  • Gilgamesh Epic Poem - 1,493 words
    Gilgamesh Epic Poem "But then I ask the question: How many men must die before we can really have a free and true and peaceful society?How long will it take?If we can catch the spirit, and the true meaning of this experience, I believe that this nation can be transformed into a society of love, of justice, peace, and brotherhood where all men can really be brothers." -Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Since the beginning of early civilization, differences in races and cultures have been a part of society.

    God's Future Is My Own (Original Poem) God's Future Is My Own Through the Bible's great words, And while learning my prayers, I was brought up to know, About the love God shares. And here I stand now, Trusting in what I've been told, I am believing, Though I have no proof to hold. Because I know blessed is he, Who believes without seeing, So therefore I trust, In this invisible being. But I sometimes I have questions, That come to mind, And the answers are what, I am longing to find. When will you come, And turn wrong to right, When will you show us, Your incredible might. This world is not, The paradise you meant it to be. When I look around, Paradise is not what I see. But this world has f ...

  • In His Poem, To Sleep, Wordsworth Talks About How He Cant Seem To Fall Asleep He Never Tells Us Why, But Maybe Its Because He - 300 words
    In his poem, To Sleep, Wordsworth talks about how he can't seem to fall asleep. He never tells us why, but maybe it's because he doesn't know. There probably was a significant event that he experienced that has either affected him psychologically that he doesn't know would affect him, or he has opted to not tell us about it. Either way, his insomnia isn't an uncommon thing. Insomnia is a condition in which a person has difficulty getting sufficient sleep. About 30 million people in the U.S. suffer from insomnia. It can be caused by a variety of things: overactive thyroid gland; diabetes; violent muscle twitching; drinking caffeine-containing beverages before going to bed; and painful arthrit ...

  • In The First Line Of The Poem, The Mirror Says It Is Silver And Exact This Can Be Interpreted Many Ways Obviously It Is Descr - 1,107 words
    In the first line of the poem, the mirror says it is "silver and exact." This can be interpreted many ways. Obviously it is describing what it looks like, but it is saying more than that. The color silver is reflective, and a mirror of course reflects what it sees. Exact, in this case could mean square, but it could also mean a lot more than that. A mirror shows you exactly what it sees; an image is reflected in the silver exactly as it appears. The mirror does not care if what it reflects is good or bad, as it says it has no preconceptions. Its job is to show you what you are. Mirrors are just a reflection of what we are on the outside, not what we are on the inside. The second line in the ...

    Love Poem My clumsiest dear, whose hands shipwreck vases, At whose quick touch all glasses chip and ring, Whose palms are bulls in china, burs in linen, And have no cunning with any soft thing Except all ill-at-ease fidgeting people: 5 The refugee uncertain at the door You make at home; deftly you steady The drunk clambering on his undulant floor. Unpredictable dear, the taxi drivers' terror, Shrinking from far headlights pale as a dime 10 Yet leaping before red apoplectic streetcars -- Misfit in any space. And never on time. A wrench in clocks and the solar system. Only With words and people and love you move at ease. In traffic of wit expertly manoeuvre 15 And keep us, all devotion, at you ...
