A Textual Analysis of Nothing Else Matters by Metallica: An Open Mind and True Heart "Metallica plays heavy metal music." This is a common stereotype of the band. "Their songs consist of nothing but meaningless screaming, while banging their guitars as loud as possible. Hordes of incomprehensible fans jump around in circles flailing their arms in the air screaming the so-called lyrics to their songs. It is not music." Numerous people believe this in all sincerity. The song "Nothing Else Matters," by no means falls under the heavy metal category. It is the type of song that would be played for a slow dance. Through the use of ethos and pathos, the author, James Hetfield, connects with his aud ...

- Leda And The Swan - 1,406 words
Leda And The Swan Yeats's 'Leda and the Swan': Psycho-Sexual Therapy in Action W.B. Yeats's heavily anthologized poem, Leda and the Swan, can be read in endless ways: as a political poem, a poem influenced by Nietzsche's idea of Will to Power, a poem of knowledge ultimately achieved through violence.

However, to understand fully the poem and its implications, a formal close reading of th e text must be combined with supplementary biographical information to inform a final psychoanalytic reading of the poem. ...

- Richard Ii By Shakespeare - 1,594 words

The American Renaissance is a time that American writers received more recognition as to the quality of their works. Before this time scholars looked upon the works of the artist and writers in America were looked upon as secondary to the across the Atlantic. The novelist Gustave de Beaumont warned Europeans not to look for poetry, literature, or fine arts in this country'. (McQuade et al pg. 462) When one of the proprietors of the North American Review first read young William Cullen Bryant's blank verse, Wordsworthian Thanatopsis (1817), a poem subsequently hailed as the finest yet written in America, he assumed the author was British: No one on this side of the Atlantic is capable of writ ...
