Both Nancy Scheper-Huges and David Valentine argues that anthropologist should not just study social problems but should also have an ethical imperative to help alleviate the suffering and preclude the violence they witness during research. Valentine consider his research important for helping transgender people gain social and political recognition. Valentine realized that in their efforts to build a community and identity based on gender variance, transgender activists were ignoring how other powerful social differences, epically race ethnicity, class and age which is intersected with genders. The dilemmas for Valentine is to know the role his research and advocacy plays in creating these eliminations. The ethical dilemmas he ended with in his research about the transgender was the effective advocacy based on careful research that doesn’t simplify the contradictory meanings of violence, pain and
In “Keats and Celtic Romanticism”, Grant F. Scott claimed that Keats 's interest was not simply artistic but there were strong contemporary political implications in his choice of embracing a culture that was pre-Roman, pre-Christian and a pre-colonized. Keats had a marginalized status as a Cockney writer in the main literary establishment which made him all the more sympathetic to the struggle of the Celts to Roman and English cultural colonization. Scott writes, “Keats 's emphasis on the Celts, Druids, and faerylore in his own poetry was a powerful defense against the depreciation of one 's self and one 's group by the patrician English ruling group in power” (Scott, Keats and Romantic Celticism by Christine Gallant, 2006, p. 226). Keats took up an idea in the Hyperion and he connected the Celts with the Titans. Scott explained that the faeries were associated with the realm of the dead and widely feared by ordinary folk.
The time has come for a reaffirmation of age-old concepts like pastoralism, romanticism, transcendentalism and naturalism, which define and explore man’s relation to nature. In the light of the present environmental awareness, redirecting human consciousness to a full consideration of its proper place in a threatened natural world can be the most important function of literature today (Love

Jennings sees a relationship between the developments of English literature in general and the development each individual poet has to go through. That was to a large extent the case in her poetry. Whereas her first poems had the directness and simplicity of early ballad poetry, she moved on to elaborate odes and lyrics which can be related to eighteenth century English poetry. In her adolescence her work resembled that of Romantic poets, who were asking questions about themselves and the meaning of themselves and the meaning of life. Eventually she reached the stage where she could use modern language and imagery in order to express her inner experiences, her thoughts about her own time and place (Jennings.
One of the poems, Retrospect seems to have influenced Jennings’s poem Delay for their endings are strikingly similar. Amis’s conclusion: “And love is always moving else” ((Amis, Collected Poems 32) resounds in Jennings’s words: “And love arrived may find us somewhere else”( Jennings, The Collected Poems 11).Their poetry appeared together in Oxford Poetry (1948). Amis noted two things in Movement poets held in common: “a desire to be lucid if nothing else, and a liking for strict and fairly simple verse forms” (Brennan 19). “Against Romanticism” presents Amis’s disavowal of romanticism and is one of the Movement’s most enduring poems, fixes its credo in both positive and negative terms. He explains the growth of romanticism but he makes no choice between its forceful principles and the dilemma it poses for adherents unable to harness its force.
What makes a text literary? What is poetic function and poetic language, why is some creative text seen as high – values such as poems and novels, while others saw as a little lasting value like the advertisements? Creativity can be seen through carter’s (1999) three main models of literariness. So in this essay, I am going to discuss and explore the nature and the features that make both the advertisement and the poem creative, the advertisement that I choose is about the environmental company green peace, and the poem is an ode to the west wind by Shelley. The three important approaches that reflect different views of the nature of literature and how to make the text creativity works that carter mention.
The development of the fifties and sixties to today illustrates an ever-expanding culture of autobiography and confession. Among those poets who were inclined to challenge certain aspects of the New Criticism, Robert Lowell, Anne Sexton and John Berryman introduced a poetry which some maligned as "confessionalism but others hailed as liberation from the tyranny of poetic decorum. Joseph Conte (Beach 154) The validity of personal experience as the matter for art has been the subject of considerable debate but perhaps never so positively expressed than by Emerson in his 1844 essay ‘The Poet’, a text which would prove central to the foundation of American poetry: The poet has
Ecocriticism: a Survey Abstract Ecocriticism is a literary critical branch emerging in the late 1970s attempted to explore the relationship between literature and environment. It attempts to reread major canonical literature by applying ecocentric and ecosystem related concepts to the same. The basic approach is to try to read literary works from the perspective of nature. It analyses human culture by positing it in comparison to the history of the natural world. The ecocritics are enthusiastically concerned over certain issues, such as: the role of the physical setting of a literary work; the metaphor of land or place; the connection between ecosystem and ecological literature.
While metaphysical poetry might be lyrical, the emotion of the poet is not the driving force of the poem. Metaphysical poetry often discusses large cosmic themes and political and philosophical ideas. Common themes are religion and love. Interesting to note is that while metaphysical
