The multifaceted nature of the human condition encompasses all aspects of human life at both an individual and collective level and delves into the notion of humanity and the values it comprises. Gwen Harwood’s poems’ “Father and Child” and “Mother who gave me life,” and Shirley Jackson’s short story, “The Lottery” (1998), explore the dynamic and often contradictory nature of the human condition. Harwood portrays the transience of time and inescapable truth of mortality, illustrating the ever changing complexion of the human experience. Whereas, Jackson examines the capability of all humans to be violent and cruel while questioning whether such tendencies can be masked by a constrictive society’s heartless ideals.

The attitudes to grief over the loss of a loved one are presented in two thoroughly different ways in the two poems of ‘Funeral Blues’ and ‘Remember’. Some differences include the tone towards death as ‘Funeral Blues’ was written with a more mocking, sarcastic tone towards death and grieving the loss of a loved one, (even though it was later interpreted as a genuine expression of grief after the movie “Four Weddings and a Funeral” in 1994), whereas ‘Remember’ has a more sincere and heartfelt tone towards death. In addition, ‘Funeral Blues’ is entirely negative towards death not only forbidding themselves from moving on but also forbidding the world from moving on after the tragic passing of the loved one, whilst ‘Remember’ gives the griever

The poem Two Lorries was written by Seamus Heaney an Irish poet born in Northern Ireland, precisely in County Derry, on April 13, 1939. He was one of the most remarkable authors of that time, which dealt with topics of violence and social issues as well as nature and Ireland history, which demonstrates the variety of his work. Heaney was awarded with a Nobel Prize in the field of literature, by 1995 since his work was of lyrical beauty and ethical depth, which exalt everyday miracles and the living past.

By the time he was 74 he died on the 30 of August in Dublin.

While the subject of “My Papa’s Waltz” by Theodore Roethke has spurred passionate academic debate from professors, scholars, and students alike, the imagery, syntax, and diction of the poem clearly support the interpretation that Roethke writes “My Papa’s Waltz” to show a beating of a son by his father that is told in a beautiful dance. Roethke uses imagery, syntax and diction which brings his poem together to reveal a profound meaning.
Repetition is a strategy used to attract a person 's thoughtfulness regarding a sure thought. Consider school. On the off chance that an instructor needs to express what is on her mind, is she going to say it once? No, she is going to repeat it various times so it starts to sink in. The same works with the repeated verses in this epic. While the use of repetition does not necessarily mean a poem is wonderful, it does help it to stand out.

The obvious repetition in the poem is at the end of every stanza, through the phrases” I am a woman, phenomenally, phenomenal woman, that’s me”.

Robert Frost wrote Nothing Gold Can Stay in 1923, just 5 years after World War 1. Although World War 2 had not started yet, Frost had a looming feeling that the world was going to end and created a poem from his feelings. I think that the style of this poem is confessional because it relates to the memories that Frost had during the time that he wrote this poem. It could also be a narrative because it tells the story of life and death. Because the title Nothing Gold Can Stay does not convey the meaning of the poem, the title's meaning is not obvious. A repetition that occurs in the poem is the reference to nature all throughout the poem. Though there is not any specific words that are repeated, the poem does refer to "her" a lot; her being

There is a very nonchalant tone and feel to the poem. The lack of detail in the poem lets the readers imagination create the situation in which the person dies.
