The tone of the last three lines is kind of sympathetic, though. It is almost like England feels sorry for Ireland, because of the things he had done to her. The “opened ground” metaphor can be associated with that Ireland is “open” for the English, they can go there freely, and the author is certainly not happy about it. The poem appeared “near the heart of North”, Heaney probably put emphasis on the poem this way. In North, most poems are written in a free verse, but Act of Union consists of two standard English sonnets.
This is true so much that is often not even recognized as local color or regionalism for its fame. However, there are many examples of regionalist characteristics and styles in Mark Twain’s book. First of all, Mark Twain’s language in Huckleberry Finn communicates the typical, slang of Southern common folk by misspelling words and using phrases that show how people actually talked near the Mississippi River. For example, he allows the reader to see how the people pronounce words when he writes, “’Yit dey say Sollermun de wises’ man dat ever live’” (Twain 99). This technique used by many regionalist writers allows the reader to receive dialect that would not be communicated with proper English.
A Net with Holes- book review of Globalization: a short history The term globalization brings forth a broad phenomenon across temporal and spatial scales, covering multi-dimensional aspects of our society including social, political, cultural and so on.

Abstract Overall, globalization can be considered as the broadening, strengthening and growing force of a global interconnection. The conception of globalization has made it possible to map experiential patterns of worldwide relations and linkage of human activity from cultural to military. As companies expand globally, they need to understand how to compete successfully in each marketplace. Companies need to assess each local opportunity and market and understand the related influences on the customers. As companies discover new international markets, they must also face new workplace challenges, such as selecting appropriate overseas personnel and building and maintaining cross-cultural teams.

In Bombay, we call high school, Junior College. I studied at a very reputed college in the city, it was one and a half hour from my house so I rarely went.
