He supported the free verse and skillfully practiced the techniques of collage and allusion. Pound placed a value on novelty and experimentation that helps define what we see as the avant-garde today (Lewis and Domestico). Pound had the most contentious career of any twentieth-century poet, and his overall place in American literature is more controversial than that of any other modernist. As a poet, a critic, and a promoter of other writers, Pound was crucial to the growth of modernist poetry. T. S. Eliot, in dedicating his poem

In The Cask of Amontillado and The Tell-Tale Heart, Poe showcases a unique style of writing, rendering exceptional pieces of literature. Both stories are within the genres of horror and romanticism, however, Poe does not conform to these genres, as they were in the 19th century. Poe branches out of romanticism, and with horror, he developed gothic romanticism and pioneered psychological horror. Poe believed that art and literature were the most realistic and accurate depiction of individual human nature. Deviating from romanticism, which would have focused on external depictions of horror, he concentrated on internal depictions of the human mind which reveal a character’s internal struggle and therefore make his depictions more realistic and stylishly accurate.
Pride and Prejudice Literary Essay The novel Pride and Prejudice, written by Jane Austen, is widely known as the development story of Miss Elizabeth Bennet and Mr. Fitz William Darcy and how these characters represent society. Elizabeth and Darcy create a forceful impression on readers and their relationship dominates the novel, which is due to Jane Austen using their character development to foreshadow her perspective on individuals in society. Elizabeth and Darcy begin with a mutual distaste for each other, due to Darcy's pride in his social economic status and Elizabeth's prejudice that she holds over aristocratic members of society. Austen uses the mutual distaste of the main characters to set the plot of the novel.
As "prom time" approaches, colour and style are just as important as they were a century ago. The word "prom" is a shortened version of the word "promenade." A hundred years ago, a promenade was the formal march of couples into a ballroom after they had been publicly announced to the guests. For wealthy Americans, debutante balls were grand occasions specifically designed for their daughters' "coming out" into society. This meant that they were now ready to entertain and be courted by approved suitors.
Darcy. Through Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy’s prejudicial personalities, they experience a change in heart for the other person by realizing their own flaws. Additionally, the different social classes between Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy greatly contribute to their relationship; Elizabeth is often discriminated for her association with Mr. Darcy, and as a result, she becomes aware of how much she loves Mr. Darcy due to her defensive reactions to offensive comments. Lastly, Elizabeth’s stubborn attitude to challenge the specific behavior of women during the time only attracts Mr. Darcy to her even more; this factor essentially challenges and changes his own character. Austen’s Pride and Prejudice is an example of a classic love story showing how love can overcome all boundaries between any two people.
Before delving into the illustrations of the nineteenth century, it is first worth discussing the cultural environment which surrounded illustrators at that time. The period from roughly 1880 to 1900, called the fin-de-siècle, is often considered the pinnacle and the decline of Decadence. Attempts to define Decadence abound in academic writing, and it is necessary to take into account the different interpretations of this term. Linda Dowling defines two opposite assumptions in regards to Decadence: the older view which “is that of rumour and gossip, a truth doomed to exhaust itself in the mere telling” as opposed to a “more serious view of Decadence [which emerged] as a cult of artifice in art and literature. ”1
Shakespearean sonnets break the boundaries which are placed on a typical Elizabethan sonnet, in terms of style and content. Shakespeare modernised the form of the sonnet by applying different rhyming schemes and complex techniques. It can be argued that his work, unlike traditional sonnets, illustrates an intersection between poetry and theatre during the English renaissance. He also chose to discuss “love” in quite an abstract way in his sonnets. Shakespeare appeared to be mocking the worshipful attitude of the Petrarchan sonnet, as he used a different type of idealism and chose to write homoerotic poetry.

The composition of the scene, such as the relationship of the actors to one another and the spacing of each scene are all as important to the story as every other detail in the scene (Barsam & Monahan, 2013). In the film Citizen Kane an example of this design and composition can be demonstrated by the scene in which Kane is yelling at his wife, the failed opera singer. In one such scene there is an argument between the two characters about materialism. The wife only wants love from her husband and all he is willing to do is buy her love. The use of light and dark and shadow in the scene help illustrate the two sided of their argument (Welles,
Modernism is a literary and artistic movement of the 20th century that can be defined as a set of values produced between World War I and II. Some examples of Modernist Literature are the essays Modern Fiction by Virginia Woolf and From Romanticism and Classicism by T.E. Hulme. These essays characterize Modernism by it’s rejection of materialism and the sensible view of hopes and dreams that it holds. And though not all pieces created in this time were an example of modernist literature, All Quiet on the Western Front by Erich Maria Remarque is.
