Broadbent holds the view that “Milton is among the few English writers whose style can be called scholarly, his images unique and his words elevated” (6). The ingredients of the grand style generally are: the greatness of the conception which inspires the poem; the exercise of a rich imagination; the employment of dignified words arranged in an impressive and harmonious order; and the use of certain technical devices which add to the interest and the dignity of the language employed. The grand style produces an impression of “bigness, or enormity, or vastness, or loftiness in the reader’s mind” (Nicolson 12). And this is the impression produced upon our minds while reading Milton’s Paradise
The dialogue of spy fiction’s role in regards to detective fiction does tie somewhat into realism, which is connected to the useful properties of American detective fiction. It still, however, stands apart because the focus is on the lack of realism and the glorification of violence. Though these things are not wholly removed from the topic at hand, the—fairly lengthy—discussion feels misplaced. The result of the long detour to spy fiction is that it is “no more a clouded mirror than any other” (9). While this conclusion is intriguing, it seems as though it could be another article in its own right, and it lessens the strength of the thesis.
Also, I was intrigued by the way the book does an excellent job in making its content relatable by incorporating true short stories told by the ancient Babylonians. By having these stories as examples it was exciting to see Arkad’s opinion. I also enjoyed the fact that the book was written and published in old English. I found the book inspirational because it discloses the secrets to being both wealthy and successful. This book holds the key to all you desire and everything you would wish to accomplish in life.
He uses wordplay, imagery, and personification to make the poem interesting. “Jabberwocky” has a unique and very creative feel to it and I enjoyed reading it because of how imaginative it is. The poem has the same rhyme scheme as seen in many of Lewis Carroll’s poems, which is abab (Carroll, Lewis Poetry for). “Rules and Regulation” is another poem written by Lewis Carroll. This is a poem about a list of rules and laws that Carroll came up with that are amusing and not very difficult to follow.

Shakespeare 's pieces are recognized additionally by a significant authenticity which uncovers the grouping of his individual encounters. His ballads were generally welcomed by his peers.

This book which attracts me as I enter on the study of legends of Britain heroes is one which gains excellent fame, since it is the most unique book in which we are apt to be close to the world of these who are undaunted, and, forevermore, retained in the river of history. These heroes vary from some aspects: background, family, birth, and experience, but they have one thing in common- bravery; what’s more, I also get some thoughts with which I may understand foreign culture easier. Then, my random thoughts are as followed. Bravery, intangible and indescribable, in the depth of our heart from which various feelings are produced, is the most powerful weapon, for it can defeat everything in the world. Taking Beowulf for an instance, when he
Also of value in the novel’s analysis are the terms simulacra and white noise. Postmodernism, according to Matterson and pbs.org is “skepticism toward the "grand narratives" that seek to explain and plot human life and history”, which is reflected by the plentiful short scenes that form the essence of this novel in its depiction of American society. Also evident in DeLillo’s work is a “discontinuity of tone” and the “random unexpected intrusions and disruptions in the text”, which strengthen the novel’s plot and message. Furthermore, point of view is crucial to the novel’s portrayal of America in that Jack Gladney reflects, critically and naively on his own country. In a broader context, postmodernism deals with the creation of hyper realities and “stems from a recognition that reality is not simply mirrored in human understanding of it, but rather, is constructed as the mind tries to understand its own particular and personal reality” This is in accord with the novel’s theme of media diffusing reality as opposed to the environment the Gladney’s are surrounded by.
He was the first man to create the British-style poetry, and he made great contributions to the history of English literature. The British and the world's writers are highly rated for Chaucer. Because of that he not only opened the British Elizabethan literature path, but also affected the later British literary writers. The change and evolution of his personal style can be seen from Chaucer's representative works. In the mature period Chaucer is not only to create his own unique style works, but also to use this unique style to open the Elizabethan period of literary peak.
2.3. Defoe and Crusoe Daniel Defoe is honoured as the pioneer of the English realist novel (Hammond 20). He introduced into the literary tradition not only scrupulous descriptions of the reality (Hammond 21), but also a believable and convincing protagonists (Hammond 67, Hammond and Regan 80). Defoe’s writing is characterised by “purity and clarity of description, … sharp focus on things and phenomena, on sequences and exact movements” (Richetti 190). The combination of these elements ensured the verisimilitude (Hammond 67) of his narratives.
Literature aims to flourish truth and beauty which resonate the elegance of delight and blow the breezes of spiritual well being in human thought. Rabnidranath Tagore, Sobriquet Gurudev,a Bengali Polymath and first Non- European Nobel laureate and John Keats, the great English romantic and poet of beauty reshaped their own distinctive region’s literature with profoundly sensitive, vigorous and well composed works where truth and beauty are merged as the majestic and all encompassing spirits. Tagore in his romantic expression has poured intense solemnity and comfort with a keen search of beauty in things. He has also sought to explore the greater underlying truth of these beauties in complete spiritual realization. To John Keats, beauty stands as the spirit of life and art.
