... o the different social classes that existed, so he wrote in a more indirect approach towards life. Although he did not see the different social classes, by being a Christian and/or Priest, he was likely able to associate with people that he could relate to, such as the ones who did not believe in Christianity or simply did not know. The situations that both authors were in gave both of them an excellent perspective on the characters that they were writing about. Chaucer included characters from all classes except the nobility, which is indicative of the classes he was welcomed into by the participants. The author of Beowulf is dedicated to serving his God and it is acceptable to believe ...

- The Poetry Of A E Housman - 858 words
The Poetry of A. E. Housman Housman was born in Burton-On-Trent, England, in 1865, just as the US Civil War was ending.

For example, his story, "The Child of Lancashire," published in 1893 in The London Gazette, is about an child who travels to London, where his parents die, ...

In his poem, William Carlos Williams criticizes poets like Thomas for using too many stylistic formalities, thereby obscuring their poetrys true literal content. He also scolds them for placing themselves into the poetry when, in his view, there really is no place for them there. Finally, he ends with an offering of recourse for all the poets like ...
