  • Beowulf Is Considered The Oldest Of The Great Poems Written In English, It May Have Been Composed More Than Twelve Hundred Ye - 352 words
    Beowulf is considered the oldest of the great poems written in English, it may have been composed more than twelve hundred years ago, maybe even the first half of the eighth century. The epic Beowulf is the establishment of every story or movie based on Action and Adventure. I found the story extremely descriptive and enjoyable. There have been plenty of movies and stories based on the storyline of Beowulf for example Predator with Arnold Swarzenegar or even the comic book character of Batman. They all have the same basic idea of hero that has to fight an enemy that is causing havoc. Also there is a time line in which it completely tells the life of the hero. Being that the story had no pict ...

  • Beowulf Is One Of The Oldest Existing Poems In The English Language Originally Written In Anglosaxon, It Has Been Translated - 728 words
    Beowulf is one of the oldest existing poems in the English language. Originally written in Anglo-Saxon, it has been translated to give readers the opportunity to enjoy this colorful, heroic poem of Englands epic age. It has been declared as a heroic-elegaic poem because of the various characteristics it clearly possesses. An epic consists of a hero who is larger than life. Beowulf is unquestionably a perfect example of this hero because of the amazing acts of heroism he commits. Epic characters also give numerous speeches that revel something about the past or the speakers characteristics. Beowulf does not give many, but from those he gives, the reader leans about his character traits. The l ...

  • Contrast And Comparison Of Ee Cummings Poems Humanity I Love You And A Man Who Had Fallen - 1,521 words
    Contrast and Comparison of E.E Cummings' poems 'humanity i love you' and 'a man who had fallen' Matt Semmler Through a comparison and contrast of e.e. cummings' poems - 'Humanity I Love You' and 'A man who had fallen' show how expression of his ideas is dependent on his art as a poet. E.e. cummings' ideas are dependent on his art as a poet. In the two poems, 'Humanity' and 'A man who had fallen', e.e. cummings develops a picture of mankind as weak and directionless, and of the poet as being the spiritual and compassionate guide for humanity. In both poems, these ideas are expressed through the subject matter, point of view, irony and imagery and sound. Through the subject matter of 'Humanity ...

  • Dickinson, Emily Two Poems - 608 words
    Dickinson, Emily Two Poems Two Poems. Two Ideas. One Author Two of 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 both poems were created less than a year apart by the same poet, their ideas about what lies after death differ. In one, there appears to be life after death, but in the other there is nothing. Only a number of clues in each piece help us determine which poem believes in what. In the piece, "Because I Could Not Stop For Death," we are being told the tale of a woman who is being taken away by Death. This is our first indica ...

  • Emily Dickinsons Death Poems - 1,073 words
    Emily Dickinson's Death Poems Emily Dickinson's world was her father's home and garden in a small New England town. She lived most of her life within this private world. Her romantic visions and emotional intensity kept her from making all but a few friends. Because of this life of solitude, she was able to focus on her world more sharply than other authors of her time were. Her poems, carefully tied in packets, were discovered only after she had died. They reveal an unusual awareness of herself and her world, a shy but determined mind. Every poem was like a tiny micro-chasm that testified to Dickinson's life as a recluse. Dickinson's lack of rhyme and regular meter and her use of ellipsis a ...

  • Even In Her Earlier Poems, Sylvia Plath Displays An Unhealthy Preoccupation With Sex, Madness, Morbidity And Obscurity - 993 words
    Even in her earlier poems, Sylvia Plath displays an unhealthy preoccupation with sex, madness, morbidity and obscurity. Discuss. There seem to be a number of common themes running through all of Plaths poems, which encapsulate her personal attitudes and feelings of life at the time she wrote them. Of these themes, the most prevalent are: sex, madness, morbidity and obscurity. The whole concept of sex to Plath appears to be a very disturbed and resentful one. This is conveyed strongly through the poem Maudlin (a poem about self-pity) in which Plath evokes her bitterness toward masculinity with the aid of the two characters, the Virgin and Jack. Jack is described as having a "crackless egg" an ...

  • Father Poems - 1,259 words
    Father Poems In examining the four father poems, I chose to talk about "Breakings", "Black Walnuts", and "My Papa's Waltz". In each of the three poems the speaker reminisces about memories he has with his father that take place when the speaker was young. The three texts discuss the father's importance in the son's maturation. In the poem entitled "My Papa's Waltz," the author is writing about a son and his father doing some sort of activity. Throughout the poem some negative sounding words are used to describe certain events in the poem. I happened to choose the positive side because of the ending. The poem reflects a positive feeling at the end, "Then waltzed me off to bed / still clinging ...

  • Frost Poems Comparison - 1,368 words
    Frost Poems Comparison Robert Frosts poems "Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening" and "Acquainted with the Night" seem to be ordinary poems at first glance, but after an in depth look at these works and how they relate, they become much more. Frost seemed to keep a tone of mystery throughout each of these poems, never actually telling the reader exactly what was going on. By the same token, the poems gave off sense of darkness and gloom just adding to the mystery of what lies ahead. Neither of the characters in these poems seem to be very happy which also augments the gloomy mood of these poems. The characters in these poems also appear to be on some kind of journey, but are reluctant to go ...

  • In Edgar Allan Poes Poems He Writes About Death And Darkness Throughout His - 743 words
    In Edgar Allan Poes poems he writes about death and darkness. Throughout his poems, "The Raven" and "The Bells", Poe writes of death, darkness, and evil. Many say he writes about this because of his childhood problems. (Slovey p. 15) As you continue to read, it will show how others feel about his writings and his desire to write about death. In Edgar Allen Poes poem, The Bells, Poe tells how bells can play a part throughout death and this causes readers to dislike the poem but it also has a positive effect on readers when Poe tells of bells being used as symbols of love. For example, some feel that Poes desire for death makes the poem less interesting. W.M. Auden tells how the Bells was less ...

  • One Of Emily Dickinsons Poems, Formally Titled The Feet Of People Walking Home, Is Of Some Interest In Its Own Merit Unlike S - 918 words
    One of Emily Dickinsons poems, formally titled "The feet of people walking home," is of some interest in its own merit. Unlike some of Dickinsons other poems, such as the ones that exist among other versions due to a few dissimilarities, this poem is duplicated verbatim. To the untrained eye, this triviality would often be overlooked, were it not for the fact that Emily Dickinson had not intended on publishing many of her poems. Why, then, did she duplicate this poem? Perhaps a more in-depth analysis of the poem, as well as the current events in Dickinsons life, would answer this query. Estimated to have been written in the year 1858, the poem begins its first stanza by conveying the emotion ...

  • Poems By Robert Frosts - 818 words
    Poems By Robert Frosts Robert Frost is an American poet who drew his images from the New England countryside and his language from the New England speech. His poetry was mainly about the life of the rural New Englander. Frosts focus was on everyday subject matters. A lot of his poems were concerned with how people interact with their environment, and the beauty of nature. I will be analyzing some of Frosts poems including After Apple-Picking, An Old Mans Winter Night, The Road Not Taken, Acquainted with the Night and discussing the themes apparent in each. After Apple-Picking describes how after a hard day of picking apples the speaker dreams of the activity but in his dreams these activitie ...

    Robert Frost Poems From the later 1800s (1874) to the middle 1900s (1963), Robert Frost gave the world a window to view the world through poetry. From "A Boys Will" to "Mountain Interval," he has explored many different aspects of writing. Giving us poems that define hope and happiness to poems of pure morbid characteristics; all of Robert Frosts poems explain the nature of living. But why does Frost take two totally different views in his poems? Is it because of his basic temperament or could it be that his attitude towards life changed in his later years?

  • Robert Frosts Poems - 1,222 words
    Robert Frost`s Poems Robert Frost takes our imagination to a journey through wintertime with his two poems "Desert Places" and "Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening." Frost comes from a New England background and these two poems reflect the beautiful scenery that is present in our part of the country. Even though these poems both have winter settings, they contain very different tones. One has a feeling of depressing loneliness, and the other a feeling of welcome solitude. They show how the same setting can have totally different impacts on a person depending on their mindset at the time. These poems are both made up of simple stanzas and diction, but they are not simple poems. In the poem " ...

  • Robert Frosts Poems Analysis - 464 words
    Robert Frost`S Poems Analysis In the eyes of the poet, how can we describe the majestic cycle of nature? Nature is all around us and we are bound by it unpredictable transformations. Robert Frost finds the beauty of nature, yet is quite aware of its fickleness. He is infatuated with the regeneration of life with each seasonal progression. Nature is a mundane detail that we rarely take time to appreciate and sometimes take for granted its tendency to constantly make the world beautiful. When life decays, we see that the world around us is barren and desolate, but we know that it will change with the passing of time. In many of Frost's poems about nature, he recognizes the beauty of nature, bu ...

  • Shakespeare Poems - 1,027 words
    Shakespeare Poems Past, Present, and Future: Finding Life Through Nature William Wordsworth poem "Lines Composed a Few Miles above Tintern Abbey" was included as the last item in his Lyrical Ballads. The general meaning of the poem relates to his having lost the inspiration nature provided him in childhood. Nature seems to have made Wordsworth human.The significance of the abbey is Wordsworths love of nature. Tintern Abbey representes a safe haven for Wordsworth that perhaps symbolizes a everlasting connection that man will share with its surroundings. Wordsworth would also remember it for bringing out the part of him that makes him a "A worshipper of Nature" (Line 153). Five different situa ...

  • 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, ...
