Being different from society often leads to exclusion and the over complication of even the smallest things. Due to a constant existing fear of society 's response to what an individual may feel, an individual may maintain a feeling of isolation and would not want to demonstrate their feelings. When someone is different, they question every move they make because of how everyone else might react to the situation. T.S. Eliot’s poem, “The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock”, is about a well educated and modern man who wants to ask a woman a very significant question.
Love and a Question lacks of figurative speech because it is more a direct narration than a poem with deeper meaning. The story itself tries to narrate a story with a introduction, climax or conflict, and a denouement in a poetic way. In addition, symbolism is mainly from the term “Stranger” representing how the speaker can’t recognize himself, was doubtful about his love and didn’t know what to do to avoid a major loss. With the devices and clues, the reader can infer that the speaker shows a negative tone and an attitude of grief, regret or distress because he was loosing what he probably loved the most, questioned their love, and it was to late to avoid it. “The bridegroom came came forth into the porch with, ‘Let us look at the sky, a And question what of the night to be, Stranger, you and I.’” and “To mar the love of two By harboring woe in the bridal house, the bridegroom wished he
For example, in the novel neither of the characters were keen on being with each other, while in the song one character was attempting to persuade the other character to be with him. In the novel Prisoner of Night and Fog the main character Gretchen as well as another character, Daniel aren’t keen on working together due to the fact that one of them is a Jew and the other is a National Socialist; regardless they painstakingly decide to work together to achieve a common goal. Aside from the fact they end up falling in love with each other, in the beginning of the story both of them weren’t sure if they could trust each other let alone like each other. On the other hand, in the song both characters are in love with each other from the start and are craving to be together but society doesn’t allow it. Unlike the other text, in “Rewrite the Stars” one of the characters could care less about social boundaries while the other one abides by them.
But there were still critics that outwardly “condemned such openness” and Ignatow had not kept up his guard. Because of the raw emotion Ignatow expressed in his poems, Ignatow had not put on a mask, allowing for critics to aim at his unguarded heart. Many of Ignatow’s early works were heavily criticized because this ideal that a poet needed to put a mask on in order to hide the dark emotions of a story. Soon, however, Ignatow grew to ignore the criticism of his works but he also grew apart from his immature style and hatred for materialistic values. As his personal maturity grew, his poetry also matured.
In A Ritual to Read to Each Other, William Stafford speaks about a different kind of love than in Shakespeare’s sonnet. The love Stafford describes isn’t romantic, rather it is built on the fragile communication we have with the people around us. Stafford emphasizes the love of humanity, and begins his poem by pointing out how desperately bereft we are of this kind of empathy today. In the second stanza Stafford talks about the emptiness that exists between us. According to the poem we’ve become so inept at communication, that a misread of someone’s gestures could send the insecurities of childhood back to haunt us.
The magnetism that each culture holds for Walcott causes a tension which augments as the poem continues. The poet is unable to adopt the culture of his origin because of his sense of divided loyalties. It is all because of this ambiguity faced by the poet which does not resolve the paradox of his hybrid
Kilauea would have started out as a young submarine volcano by following the pattern of Hawaiian volcanic. It was building itself up through subsurface eruption of alkali basalt before emerging from the sea with a series of explosive eruptions about 50,000 to 100,000 years ago. Since then, the volcano’s activity has likely been as it is now. The oldest volcano Kohala, the northwestern volcano on the island had experienced almost 900,000 years of activity before going extinct. Kilauea at most only about 600,000 years old, hence it is still young for a Hawaiian volcano.
In a way, the lack of specific details about the narrator, and about the incident in general, makes the poem more relatable and more focused on the main topic. Many have experienced disappointment, when hopeful that a new place, situation, etc. would be better than the previous, and many have experienced the insults and rejections from peers due to perceived
When approaching Loretta 's conflict from a family perspective, the readers are exposed to analyze the differences between a male’s and a female’s determination. Because women are known as the more vulnerable and emotional sex, decision making turns upside down when men choose according to their sentiment. This occasion can be seen when Edward is forced to admit his feelings towards the complex situation between Billy 's and Loretta’s slight affair. Before Edward was presented in the short story Loretta’s portrayal was weak. Specifically, the narrator highlights: ”But she was not so sure about not wanting to leave Daisy.
Though there is a light side towards the end of the poem. Beginning with her opening verse “Love is not all,” gives the poem a negative appeal prompting the viewer to have a suspicious notion concerning the theme. The overall meaning is that love is not a requirement for our human survival. Many people who fall in love are constantly driven by factors to give up on love, of which some people give up and others do
