    Introduction Sonnet 130 is considered to be in the group of poems addressing the so called ‘Dark Lady’, who the speaker hates, loves and lusts for simultaneously. In the Sonnet Shakespeare characterizes the Dark Lady’s appearance with metaphors, which are extraordinarily out of character for the Petrarchan traditions. Instead of lauding the unavailable mistress in the highest terms, as the Petrarchan tradition dictates, Sonnet 130 humorously mocks those traditions by ‘placing innovative pressure

  • Simon Lord Of The Flies Microcosm Analysis

It is usually applied to human beings, who are considered to be “small-scale models” of the universe, with all their flaws and evildoings. The book Lord of the Flies, by William Golding is an example of a microcosm.

    The Christian influence in Beowulf’s epic adds certain meaning and connotations for the events that are happening within the story. Without it, many implications written would hold no meaning, and instead appear to be completely random and without any reason. In Beowulf’s fight against Grendel’s mother, Beowulf managed to survive a fatal blow due to miracles created by God (Seamus, pg 107). If Christianity is taken out and God is removed from the story, Beowulf’s survival would’ve been very unlikely

Satan is given the role of “inflicting punishment on sinful humanity”, but Christ,

  • Hesiod Truth Is Truth

    1241 Words  | 5 Pages

    I have been convinced that Hesiod is indeed a man that was influenced by the kingdom of darkness of the spiritual realm. Everything he writes is inspired by the governor of such kingdom or his workers, and I know I might be mocked at this, but truth is truth whether it is believed or not. It is indeed easier to believe he is a mere poet that writes myths and metaphors using the word “gods” in order to explain his worldview. Nevertheless, reasoning in this manner is ignoring the spiritual structures
