The writer uses more complicated words in this stanza such as perne and gyre. The poet is talking with the sages “Consume my heart away; sick with desire”(21). He wants the sages to purify his soul from the sickness he has. It is a metaphor where the writer asks the sages to teach him how to listen to spiritual music. Then, Yeats asks to be transformed into a piece of art that will have no age and will last forever.
The writings of William Blake are inspired by Romanticism and some good old bible stories. His most famous poems are ‘’The Lamb’’ and ‘’The Tyger’’ or better known as ‘’The Songs of Innocence’’ and ‘’The Songs of Experience’’. ’’The Songs of Innocence’’ remind me of the story in the bible about a little lamb that got lost in the meadow. The little lamb didn’t know any better because its innocence although in the ‘’The Songs of Experience’’, that’s a whole different story. ‘’The Song of Experience’’ evoked me of another bible story called ‘’The Prodigal Son’’.
Clarke would speak to me from time to time and tried to get me to commit myself to the Lord but in my early teens all these pleadings were of no avail and I just could not take Christianity seriously. Until that night. Many times previous to that memorable night I knelt at an altar of prayer primarily because others were doing so and copy-cat fashion I followed suit. Many times I went because the preacher preached a frightening message
The prominence of one’s name or reputation in the Crucible by Arthur Miller is a vital one. In the restrictive Puritan society of Salem, one’s reputation is established through the demonstration of their honesty, hard-work and strict adherence to the Christian doctrine. Reverend Parris is the first character in the play that openly addresses the importance of his reputation to himself. Even though people dislike his personality, they respect him for his strong belief in Christianity. He is unfavourable of his name getting defamed in the town even when he has seen the girls and Tituba attempting to perform witchcraft: Later in the novel when he suggests a stop on the witch hunts to Danforth, he is afraid that if he reveals too much, he would himself get accused of being associated with the devil.

In the end, Claudius’s use of deception becomes too crafty for his own good when he plans for Hamlet’s death. Claudius starts off by calling Hamlet’s grief “sweet and commendable” (I.II.92), praising him for the “mourning duties to [his] father” (I.II.94). Then, Claudius contrasts his praise with a subsequent condemnation, calling it “unmanly grief” (I.II.100) reminding him that many have lost a father. He sides with the Queen’s
At a glance, Banquo may appear innocent in regards to the tragic events that plague Scotland, yet he demonstrates how he ultimately surrenders in the battle against evil. He originally cautions Macbeth after being confronted with the witches, and declares, “The instruments of darkness tell us truths,/ Win us with honest trifles, to betray us/ In deepest consequence” (1.3.126-128). However, he makes it clear he does not heed his own warning when they next encounter each other. When given the chance, Banquo revisits the topic: “I dreamt last night of the three weird sisters:/ To you they have showed some truth,”(2.1.19-20). His curiosity is evidence that the corrupt thoughts planted by the witches have been festering in his mind.
I understand that his last sermon was all about the evils of alcohol and how it’s ruining the health and lives of our Coloured folk.” (Fugard 2003, Act 1:12) Thus we can see how Marius sees God as salvation and finds his spiritual comfort in God and the salvation He can bring. This can be seen when Marius says he is doing his doing his Christina duty by taking care of Miss Helen. However, we later learn that it was more for his love for Miss Helen than his christianly duty. Finally we have Elsa Barlow who is neither here nor there when it comes to her faith and spirituality. We don’t learn too much about Elsa’s spirituality other than the fact that she ridicules the Afrikaners old church ways.
However, Sawyer repents and condemns the Devil. An old man urges Doctor Faustus to repent which Faustus rejects, but no one urges Sawyer to repent. Finally, Mother Sawyer leaves the stage with difficulty and professes a new feeling of goodness in her repentance: These Dogs will mad me: I was well resolv’d To die in my repentance; though ’tis true, I would live longer if I might; yet since I cannot, pray torment me not; my conscience Is setled as it shall be: all take heed How they believe the Devil, at last hee’l cheat you. OLD CARTER, Tha’dst best confess all truly. SAWYER, Yet again?
