I found great interest in this concept, so I chose this poem. I have always been interested in history and different time periods and this ties into my belief that everyone, regardless of their race, gender, sexuality or nationality.

It also carries more of the poems meaning, as it means that you have to do something to be remembered, you cannot just do the baseline and hope for the best.
This essay focuses in the importance of poetry translation as said on his speech for the Neustadt International Prize for Literature, Tomas Tranströmer: “We must believe in poetry translation, if we want to believe in World Literature”.

Ms. Sylvia Plath, an acknowledged poet and the English lecturer at Smith College, has been an inspiration to the youth in poetic realm. The varied assortment ranging from “Pursuit”, to “Mad Girl’s Love Song”, to “Spinster” has given the poetic foundation a varying aspect of confessionalism. Although of providing a new paradigm for poetry, Ms. Plath’s course is so indulged in expression that is making poetry excessively subjective. The use of poetry as a form to express personal emotions is recognized, but lack of reason and overwhelming depression with gender bias is hurtful for all. Subjectivism is an integral portion of poetry to express human emotions.
One of the poems, Retrospect seems to have influenced Jennings’s poem Delay for their endings are strikingly similar. Amis’s conclusion: “And love is always moving else” ((Amis, Collected Poems 32) resounds in Jennings’s words: “And love arrived may find us somewhere else”( Jennings, The Collected Poems 11).Their poetry appeared together in Oxford Poetry (1948). Amis noted two things in Movement poets held in common: “a desire to be lucid if nothing else, and a liking for strict and fairly simple verse forms” (Brennan 19). “Against Romanticism” presents Amis’s disavowal of romanticism and is one of the Movement’s most enduring poems, fixes its credo in both positive and negative terms. He explains the growth of romanticism but he makes no choice between its forceful principles and the dilemma it poses for adherents unable to harness its force.

Summaries for C.S Lewis, An Experiment in Criticism Leif Coopman English 112 Section 113 Dr. Jon Vickery 2/8/18 Summary of Chapter 1 Here, C.S Lewis explains a experiment as the way one defines a book, as good or bad. He explains that a good book will be read in one way, and a bad book another. Lewis describes the two types of readers: the few and the many. The few are those who read with full attention, passion, appreciation, and tend to talk at great lengths about the text. The literature that the few read is constantly present in their minds, and they tend to repeat lines and stanzas when alone.
Literature has always been more than an academic pursuit to me; it fuels my yearning to further understand the human condition. I cannot separate my understanding of myself from my fervour for literature, and I similarly believe that the beauty of literature is that writers inevitably includes a part of themselves in their writing. This is the beauty of literature, which allows me to achieve a deeper connection with the characters that they have crafted with their life experiences. I have had the privilege of viewing the world in the differing yet meaningful perspectives of each author, and this is the power that literature grants the reader. I am especially fond of poetry because its diversity of forms and styles allow for distinctive expressions of emotion.
Rebels in Today’s Society Task 1 I found the poem “she must be from another country” quite interesting because of its many themes. Imtiaz Dharker wrote this poem, she is one of the most important and influencing Indian poets that are writing in English right now. One of the recurring themes in her poems are things such as the danger of exclusion, as she said in an earlier interview “"In a world that seems to be splitting itself into narrower national and religious groups, sects, castes, sub-castes, etc. we can only go on excluding others until we come down to a minority of one." The poem's title reminds us of how quickly we dismiss those who we categorize as different from us or as said in the poem, the others.
