The poem “Nothing gold can stay” By Robert Frost is a very short poem but it’s a very realistic and honest poem that everyone can relate to. This poem relates to everyday life because as we age our youth and beauty fades away like how "flowers fade away". The meaning of the poem is that in the beginning everything is so beautiful and wonderful, but as time goes by nothing stays the same, nothing precious can last. I can relate to this poem because life for me back in the day was so much better than today. I miss the good old days.
‘Nothing’ sums up the golden hue of leafs, the golden shades of dawn and the Garden of Eden, which will all eventually die out and vanish. Gold is often considered as desirable, valuable and vibrant colour. As a reader, we are able to visualize the beautiful and pure hues of gold fading and corroding into nothing, and thus, nothing gold can stay. This finale undoubtedly delivers a feeling of inevitability to the readers, which allows them to wonder how death is unavoidable and how time is out of our
The passage of time is the only certainty in life, and for many people it is horrifying. Nothing can stop time from continuing day after day, and as one of the the common experiences of all people, is a common theme in literature. Shakespeare’s Macbeth briefly touches on the subject in one of the most famous passages from Shakespeare. After Macbeth drives away all of his friends, he loses all of his happiness because he believes time will make everything he has done insignificant, and no one brings joy to his life to convince him otherwise. When people commit evil acts, they may no longer be able to see the good in life.
The basic detail of this poem are that things do not stay beautiful forever no matter what they are, meaning he left out that his message was the world was going end because he knew it might freak some people out. Nothing Gold Can Stay expresses any cultural details such as the behavior, dress or speech habits of a particular group or a historical period or event. Nothing Gold Can Stay is an example of reality. Frost seems like he feels very strongly about the world ending, and it may have the readers feeling very tense or scared about what message he's trying to get out. The theme of Nothing Gold Can Stay is about nature, and things changing.
Nothing Gold Could Stay by Robert Frost is a poem about how valuable childhood is. This poem describes turning from childhood to adulthood and how youth is special and precious because of how it ends so quickly. The four lines of the poem represent childhood and the values of it. In the first line, “Nature’s first green is gold”, green means fresh, new and little experience, which refers to childhood, and gold means incredible, special, significant and valuable, so this line states childhood is amazing and precious. In the second line of the poem, “Her hardest hue to hold”, “her” means nature and how in nature, green appears and passes quickly, like childhood.
This connects to the element of everlasting when she says, “it will never pay off in the long run”. Long run is a synonym of everlasting, so this connects to everlasting. Another example of everlasting in her article, is when she says, "morality is fundamentally good and those who follow it, even when it costs them, are the genuine heroes in a real classic" (Classical Literature Classic). In a classic, there are just some things that you do and some you just do not do. In To Kill a Mockingbird, an example of this is when Atticus says, "Shoot all the bluejays you want, if you can hit 'em, but remember it's a sin to kill a mockingbird" (Lee 119).
In “All Summer in a Day” the children/characters try to “reach” for the sun, which they are so close to getting. Even though both of these stories include the theme of reaching for something you don’t quite have may be in place in totally different texts that use their imagery in different ways, you can still find similar themes in both pieces of
She is married to Tom Buchanan; a jerk who always thinks he is right. “Well, these books are scientific” insisted Tom, glancing at her impatiently.” (13) When we first meet these two characters they couldn't seem more different. Nick doesn't like Tom all that much when they first meet. But he loves Daisy. She’s this perfect woman that all the guys want but none can have.
His life had been confused and disordered since then, but if he could once return to a certain starting place and go over it all slowly, he could find out what that thing was” (87). Ever since Gatsby had left Daisy, he has felt content with his life because he knows something is missing. Gatsby feels lonely and will continue to feel lonely without Daisy. Gatsby’s diminishing life is full of loneliness because it is “the promise of a decade of loneliness, a thinning list of single men to know, a thinning brief-case of enthusiasm, thinning hair” (129). Gatsby never does have Daisy all to himself, and dies knowing he never achieved anything more than great wealth.
One novel in particular that I love is Kate DiCamillo’s The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane. What I find most remarkable about this novel is that although it is geared towards a younger audience, it still holds many valuable lessons that are applicable to older audiences as well. Edward Tulane is a rather cynical porcelain rabbit who had lived life too comfortably. However, everything changes when he is lost by his owner, and after spending months in a toyshop, Edward admits that he didn’t care about anyone anymore. When I first read his bitter words, I was astounded.
