This is the way how the boy falls in love with her. After that, the boy starts thinking about her all the time. One day, when the girl asked whether he is going to Araby, he says he will bring some gift for her from Araby if he goes there. Somehow, he convinced his uncle to go to the Araby on Saturday. However, he reached the Araby: bazaar, but he could not purchase any gift because the bazaar was almost closed, and if any opened, the stall owner was busy on talking and laughing with other men rather than doing her own business.
Siegfried Sassoon takes on a narrative style in his poem “The Rear-Guard”, and combines it with complex syntax to portray the speaker’s horrific experiences throughout war. The poem exposes a soldier’s experience of finding the violent battlefield above through the death-filled tunnels. Pairing the speaker’s point of view with specific word choice clearly demonstrates the excruciating mental and physical pain being a soldier inflicts, and leaves a glooming effect on the reader. Sassoon fills the poem with explicit imagery to reveal the pacifist theme he is trying to convey. Sassoon wants the audience to realize that war and violence is not the solution, and he reveals this through his poetry.
2 Analysis From the start of the first quatrain, the speaker declares his beloved one unappealing “In faith, I do not love thee with mine eyes/ For they in thee a thousand errors note” (1-2). He states that he truly does not love his mistress only with eyes, his love is not based on appearance. He explains that his love is not blind, all the blemishes, faults, physical imperfections or even wrong and arrogant behavior of the beloved one are clearly seen. The speaker does not praise the allure and grace of his beloved one as it usually happens in sonnets. The word “error” (2) is the first negative image, which meaning according to the dictionary is “the amount of deviation from a standard or specification, a deficiency or imperfection in structure or function”.
Humbert Humbert and his Lolita, Dolores Haze, are incomparable characters that toy with the reader’s emotions and are the basis of this story. While questioning the author’s intention in creating such a wretched tale, I discovered that Vladimir Nabokov, himself states that the novel has no intended moral, it was just something he had to get off his chest. And that is perhaps the best evaluation I can offer, one should read Lolita not for is sexual and emotional rawness, the beautiful prose, or a good and honest cry, but because it is book without an intended moral. Books like these have no gray zone, no middle ground, the reader is forced to love it or hate
Analysis of Larkin’s Aubade Philip Larkin is the poet of the Movement rejecting the modernist norms and differing from his counterparts. Thus, he can be regarded as an anti-modernist poet because he uses colloquial language -even slang- and avoids using many allusions and mythical references unlike T.S Eliot and Ezra Pound. It can be the reason why his poetry can be understood and enjoyed by the readers. The period of Philip Larkin was the period of chaos and displacement because of many anxieties such as loss of faith in religion and world wars that created political, economic and social problems. Due to those anxieties, people’s state of mind and the view of life have changed.
Well, the speaker of “My mistress’ eyes are nothing like the sun (Sonnet 130)” had a different idea. The speaker uses this sonnet to joke around with a variety of exaggerated comparisons some poets back then wrote about when talking about their beloved. In the poem “My mistress’ eyes are nothing like the sun (Sonnet 130)”, William Shakespeare develops a parody of conventional love through tone, imagery, and symbolism. In Sonnet 130, the Shakespeare uses a mocking and verbal irony tone. The title and
In Sir Philip Sidney’s Poem, “Thou Blind Man’s Mark,” Sidney presents a male speaker who struggles with a inner conflict of the human trait, desire. This desire is what the poem centralizes on and he wrestles with the human trait desire which causes conflict in his life and his mind. He knows he must deal with it and tries to figure out how to subdue or erase it completely. The motivation driving him to write the poem, is his burning ambitions and his want to always rise through problems. But the desire to rise above every ambition of his is dragging him down in his personal life.
This poem is an image, not a statement, and is not of the order of rational discourse. A poet like Enright states clearly and lucidly what he wishes to say: “Which is why I try to write lucidity, that even I /Can understand it--- and mildly, being loth to face the fashionable terrors, / Or venture among sinister symbols, under ruin’s shadow. /Once having known, at an utter loss, that utter in Comprehension/- Unseen, unsmelt, the bold bat, the cloud of jasmine, Truly out of one’s senses—it is
Postmaster is described as a conventional man and represents a patriarchal society where a man cannot view any emotions and relationships as a woman can and this is the only thing that gives rise to a feminist argument in the story. The postmaster is a story that primarily deals with the human relationships- the unconventional relationship between Ratan and the postmaster. The bond they shared had no meaning, just mutual attachments and understanding. Tagore with his story very well came up with oddities of human nature and its aspirations, that despite knowing the harmful consequences of something, the moment we depart from it, the desire to embrace those mistakes grips us again. RELATION WITH OTHER TEXTS- DELHI: A novel by KHUSHWANT SINGH is a book set up in Delhi, which shares the theme of unconventional relationship with the text between the narrator and a hijra named Bhagmati.
Stein combined several words together in her pieces because she liked the way they sounded abstract. The content of her pieces lacked narrative, but in reality appealed to the thoughts and feelings of Stein. "Stein was a bold experimenter and self-proclaimed genius; she rejected the linear, time-oriented writing characteristic of the nineteenth century for a spatial, process-oriented, specifically twentieth-century literature" (“Gertrude Stein" 1). Stein 's collection of literature included: dense poems and fictions, often absent of plot or dialogue, which yielded memorable phrases (“Gertrude Stein" 1). One of Steins more famous "phrases" that depicted this style was "Rose is a rose is a rose" (“Gertrude Stein" 1).
