ENG 361 Professor Prescott March 29, 2018 Falling for the Devil John Milton wrote one of the greatest epic poems of all time when he wrote Paradise Lost. The book portrays the story of man’s creation and fall while detailing the characters and plot beyond what the Bible teaches. When reading Milton’s poems, one must determine which character is the hero of the epic poem. One of the most controversial characters within the story is Satan. When thinking of a hero, the reader would normally presume the Messiah as the hero, or Adam, or perhaps even Eve.
Religion Is Not Always as It Should Be During the early twentieth century, Samuel Taylor Coleridge began his quest to strive to create works of literature for the common man; an ambition that was rare among his contemporaries. In 1800, he published "The Rime of the Ancyent Marinere," a poem immersed with didactic and religious undertones. Since Coleridge intends to use this poem as a lesson for his reader, the common man of the 18th century, he demonstrates that religion works in unexpected ways, and religious repentance is ultimately not a complete vindication of sin. Specifically, in lines 264 to 283, Coleridge dictates both a bizarre and disheartening account of religion by using obscure imagery, peculiar word choice, and a unique rhyme scheme. His stylistic choices proceed to not only raise doubts about the preconceived concepts of prayer and religion, but also act as a religious deterrent to the reader.

Introduction: The idea of poetry falls under being a literary work in which intensity, passion, emotion and expression is produced within a series of stanzas containing rhythm, style and aesthetics. Within the 18th century, William Cowper was a man of religion as the century was filled with distinct and specific types of style such as metaphysical poetry. On the other hand, Edgar Allen Poe was one of the most famous poets of the 19th centuries and had a darker presence within his poetry, as that century was filled with a more range of imagination. Cowper and Poe both have many differences throughout a 2-century difference, but can compare as well within poetry techniques and topics. Both poets like to have a dark aura in their poetry making the reader feel critical, sultry and engaged through poems about death and religion.
Over the decades, Gerard Manley Hopkins has been a perpetual source of controversy regarding his peculiar manner of writing poetry, as well as an obvious detachment from the typical Victorian mentality. In a time of a terrible religious decay, his poetry has a highly Christian foundation. This essay aims to scrutinize the presence of Jesus Christ under different representations in one Hopkinsian poem, namely The Windhover. First and foremost, it is of significant importance to acknowledge the influences under which Hopkins created poetry. He was the product of two Victorian doctrines merged together: scholasticism and aestheticism.
With obvious intent to publish on America 's celebration of independence, Whitman provided the nation with an epic designed for Americans-Leaves is an adaption of mid-nineteenth century American values, carved into a booklet with only 12 poems on 95 pages.

Critics have also revered Whitman 's poetry, claiming it has "fathered many of the popular poets of the day" (Brown 33). That Whitman 's
In “London 1892”, William Wordsworth says, "Milton! thou shouldst be living at this hour:, England hath need of thee" (William Wordsworth). From the poem, “Paradise Lost” to “When I Consider How my Light is Spent” and “On Time”, John Milton proves to be one of the most influential poets in literary history. The variety of subjects, form and literary devices used in “Paradise Lost” to “When I Consider How my Light is Spent” and “On Time”, is case for his overdue nomination for the Nobel Prize in Literature. Born in London in 1608, John Milton was raised with heavy religious influences; which is evident in his poetic works.
