“You beat time on my head, With a palm caked hard by dirt, Then waltzed me off to bed, Still clinging to your shirt” (Lines 13-16). The line, “You beat time in my head,” (Line 13), may be misunderstood to indicate physical violence.

All of these carvings provide Dante with whips, or virtues to model, to propel him towards paradise. Next, Virgil directs the Pilgrim’s attention to the approaching Penitents, who are bent low to the ground because of the huge weights they carry on their backs. During life, the Proud went around “stiff-necked, with head held high,” but are now forced toward the ground in a gesture of humility (Notes 116). As Dante begins to speak with one of the souls by the name of Omberto, he: “had [his] head bent low, to hear his words,” as he “moved with those souls, keeping [his] body bent” (X.73,75). Here, Dante is actually sharing in the purgation of the Proud.
Winter Rain “Receive the truth and let it be your balm” John Keats After the stock market crash of ‘29, Ernest Spaulding lost his job at a private school back east and came home to farm between two rivers running sand; he painted his house Tuscan orange in a valley of white farm homes, bought milk cows from a slaughterhouse herd and work horses from canny men who made their living buying horses cheap and selling them high. Reading late by lantern light, his window was single orange star low on the horizon, seen by men during calving season, shaking their heads at this idealism. Once a week he hitched his young team of horses to steel-rimmed box-wagon and drove them to town to sell milk and eggs and buy groceries, difficult because young horses only want to go back to pasture —undiscipline creasing smiles on sun-leathered faces of

They get fear for both for the Papa-Eugene and fear for the sin to Catholic. The front page of the book ‘Purple Hibiscus’ quotes LA Weekly, “As vivid a picture as Adichie paints of Nigeria-you practically taste the dust of the village roads on your tongue and smell the cashew trees after a heavy rain-it is her people, with their thwarted hopes for love and freedom, that stubbornly spring eternal hopes for love and freedom, that stubbornly spring eternal, that stay with you.” Kambili influences by modernism through Aunty Ifeoma and Amaka.

Sydney and The Bush The poem “Sydney and The Bush” (2000)by Les Murray talks about the clash between the first two cultures in Australia, the Aborigines and the White Settlers, from an omniscient 3rd person point of view while portraying White Settlers in a negative light, but also mentioning the ‘Australian’ identity using Australian history and the beloved and unique Australian bush. The author makes his intentions clear through the use of poetic devices such as rhythm and repetition, and because each stanza is four lines in total, the form of the poem is Quatrain. This poem describes the clash between the two races using select poetic devices to effectively communicate the author’s point of view and also what it means to be ‘Australian’.
It is evident that “Tony Birch revives Melbourne’s past” through the creation of structure, that creates images in the readers’ minds; and it is these images, that ultimately forms a type of a narrative, which restores Australia and Melbourne’s past – to the readers. The structure of – ‘My Words’, Beruk (Ngamajet) – 1835 – is interesting, because it creates a narrative accounting, the arrival of the British and the racism that prevailed, after their arrival. The poem’s structure can be unpacked by analyzing the poem thoroughly.

Historical Australian poetry illustrates what life was like, especially in the colonial era when a variety of poetry was written about personal experiences in the new country.

Mackellar and Paterson both romanticized the country but they were both longing for an opposite exposure.
