  • 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 ...

  • Song Of Solomon By Morrison - 634 words
    Song Of Solomon By Morrison The Icarus Myth in Toni Morrison's Song of Solomon Throughout literature it has been common for authors to use allusions to complement recurrent motifs in their work. In Toni Morrison's Song Of Solomon, Milkman learns that his desire to fly has been passed down to him from his ancestor Solomon. As Milkman is figuring out the puzzle of his ancestry, he realizes that when Solomon tried to take his youngest son, Jake, flying with him, he dropped him and Jake never arrived with his father to their destination. Sound familiar? Well, it seems quite probable that Morrison drew from the Daedalus/Icarus Greek myth. Daedalus was a well-known architect and engineer in Athens ...

  • Song Of Solomon By Toni Morrison - 845 words
    Song Of Solomon By Toni Morrison The book called Song of Solomon, by Toni Morrison, deals with many real life issues, most of which are illustrated by the relationships between different family members. One archetypal relationship that Morrison includes in her book is the father:son relationship. Although it is obvious that Morrison does talk about this topic, it is not so obvious what she is trying to say about it. So, one might ask, how does the author establish the father:son relationships throughout Song of Solomon and do they fit some sort of archetype? To answer a question such as this, it would be beneficial to examine the actual father:son relationships throughout the book. One estab ...

  • Subject: English Whitman: Song Of Myself - 1,239 words
    Subject: English - Whitman: 'Song of Myself' Divinity, Sexuality and the Self Through his poetry, Whitman's "Song of Myself" makes the soul sensual and makes divine the flesh. In Whitman's time, the dichotomy between the soul and the body had been clearly defined by centuries of Western philosophy and theology. Today, the goodness of the soul and the badness of the flesh still remain a significant notion in contemporary thought. Even Whitman's literary predecessor, Emerson, chose to distinctly differentiate the soul from all nature. Whitman, however, chooses to reevaluate that relationship. His exploration of human sensuality, particularly human sexuality, is the tool with which he integrate ...

    The Science of Inspriring People Through Song Only every once in a while does a band come out with music that truly inspires people. Some good examples of such bands are The Who and Rush, with recent additions such as Weezer and Oasis. In an industry filled with people who have lost all sense of what good music is and whose only goals are to make money and become popular, it has become hard for bands such as those mentioned above to be noticed. Lately there has been a serious lack of quality in the music that has come out. In the early 90s bands such as Weezer and Oasis set a positive image of rock. Now, however with bands such as Korn, Limp Bizkit, and Slipknot musical quality has seriously ...
