This implies that the chapel, representing institutionalised religion, destroys all elements of nature and innate human desire. This suppressing of natural human desire is also shown in Marvell’s poem as the mistress’s “coyness” is preventing the speaker from being intimate with her. Her flirtatious reservations, paired with the advances of time, lead the speaker to form an extremely coherent, philosophical argument; this results in a logical rhyme scheme which could also be said to resemble the constant ticking of a clock. The reasoned argument is extremely fitting for the Neoclassical period it was written it as other authors of the time also delved into the importance of individual satisfaction through coherent debates. However, Blake’s poem resonates with the Romantic period which differs immensely due to the inherent desire for personal freedom which was common amongst his
However, Jane Austen’s Persuasion is the story of Anne Elliot’s coming of age; when she frees herself from the expectations of society and subsequent pressure from her family, Lady Russell and herself. Persuasion is a reflection of the influence within each person to rise above the conflict of values as Anne must. Anne’s relationship with Captain Wentworth only furthers her connection to her values, therefore she is not hindered by the coincidence of her engagement and her freedom. Austen is not painting persuasion as a power that keeps individuals from their happiness; but rather, she is using it as a motivating factor towards that happiness. Anne Elliot proves that the individual is in charge of its own happiness, that all other factors are obsolete, through her friendships, her firm stance in morality, and her triumph of self-doubt.
Sherman Alexie writes the story “Indian Education” using a deadpan tone to build and connect the years of the narrator 's life together in an ironic way. Alexie is able to utilize irony through the use of separate, short sections within the story. The rapid presentation of events, simple thoughts, and poetic points made within the story enable the reader to make quick connections about the narrator’s life to draw more complex realizations. The art that Alexie uses to write this very short story is poetic in nature through the meaning and structure of his writing. By the fact that the reader can draw deeper conclusions about the narrator 's life from Alexie’s writing is evident that his writing is poetic.
The verses structure and poetic technique notable, particularly in the use of a refrain of ‘thou art fair’, enclosing the love comparisons and giving them further significance and intensity. The framing effect is furthered by the addition of ‘all’ to the end refrain, giving a sense of conclusion to the bridegrooms feelings. The difference in description of the first comparison ‘thou hast doves’ eyes within thy locks’ compared with the rest of the passage, where the body part appears first, and the metaphor second, is also interesting, as if the bridegroom speech’s structure develops after the first comparison and his way to express his love becomes more concrete. Further inversions can be seen in the order of features described. Gianni Barbiero suggests the order is ‘poetic, not logical’.
Despite the negative stereotype of American Indians, the objections and disapproval of fellow Natives, and the criticism of others, Sherman Alexie went on to become a successful writer that has inspired many. Alexie overcame many obstacles that would have deterred him from his goal, but he was able to remain steadfast and continue on in his pursuit of writing. As a result, he has published many literary works that include several short stories, poems, and a variety of novels. He allows his culture to seep into his writing, and continues to inspire young American Indians who also desire the path of knowledge. The Spokane Indian Reservation in Washington State was where Alexie first began to cultivate his love and understanding of reading.
When seeing the short film of “Cousin” by Adam Elliot’s for the first time I felt sad. I felt that there was a slow built up towards a sad ending. Adam Elliot’s focused on the various elements such as the coloring, diegetic narration and somewhat of a realistic character expression to create a sad feeling in which a viewer can relate too. In the film, “Cousin” by Elliots’s there multiple use of colors even though the colors were dull. It seems like Elliots goal was to build up sadness by using different color shades.
Abandoning the opportunity that getting an education had to offer plays a huge factor on their idea of being “cool” but the actual indication is not so. Youths seek attention and prioritize their time on the certainty of being noticed causing a lack of apprehensiveness about the outcomes of their actions. Along with the subtitle, Brooks uses the phrase “we die soon” to signify early death in the pool players due to their poor decisions. (line 8) However, as the poem is through the young men’s perspective the phrase may also be interpreted to be the reason they are not apprehensive of their engagements. As they “sing sin” (line 4 and 5), they show an enormous “level of comfort with the sin because they are singing it to the world” with no fear of judgement.
One of the main ones is that every action has consequences.Brooks demonstrates this by emphasizing the actions of the boys, as well as the last line “Die soon,” which causes the reader to reflect on the actions shown in the poem and infer that they result in death. The importance of education is another message exuded in the text; the grammatical mistakes and explicit statement “[We] left school’ tells the reader that the pool players are uneducated. Holding true to your own morals and beliefs is also projected. The young men are so busy trying to act “real cool,” they do not see that they are going down a dark path. Brooks promotes not pretending to be someone that you are not.
Because of the speaker’s immaturity, she cannot be classified and gendered as female, and, consequently, she is not part of this gender base structure. As a child, the speaker is free from this structure. In fact, she is beyond structure. Thus, she is more capable of climbing over the fence than God: “I could climb—if I tried, I know.” God could also climb over the fence “if He were a Boy,” but the fact is He is not a boy. He is a grown up and gendered and classified as a male, which makes Him part of the structure.
They both contain a similar introduction – a low bass note followed by a quick note in the right hand, and then the introduction of the theme. In addition, both works progress in the same manner. As the pieces move along, they become more complex and build upon what has already been played. They contain some rhythmic independence, and at least in the Chopin Nocturne, the ornamentation has an unfolding feel to it. That allows the melody to continue to move along where it may have started to become almost
