The writer then contradicts this with the description ‘signs of sleeplessness beneath his eyes’ which suggests to the reader that Gatsby has been over thinking and almost obsessed about this meeting. As well as this the writer suggest to the reader about how much Gatsby cares about appearance ‘I want to get the grass cut’ – it seems Gatsby believes everything must be perfect for Daisy. Yet the reader begins to doubt that all this extravagance is the real Gatsby as the reader discovers his ‘bedroom was the simplest room of all’. The bedroom is somewhere of security and is meant to reflect the person’s personality, in the end Gatsby like his room is the man without all his
One of the themes that dominate Slessors poem, Sleep, is the idea that the act of sleep is wholly overlooked as a beauteous daily act and the cleansing affect it has on the mind, body and soul. The first stanza is constructed as a rhetorical question asking the audience if they will give themselves wholly to the unconscious act of sleep. The answer “yes utterly” is italicised to show that a second voice is present. Whilst this second voice may seem unnecessary it conveys to the audience how one must be fully consensual in surrendering themselves to the hands of sleep. The use of alliteration, “blindly and bitterly”, assonance, “carry you and ferry you”, and the repetition of the word “you” throughout the poem enforces a hypnotic beat which symbolises the steady beat of the human heart as a person sleeps.
The middle classes in these times would have been somewhat 'socially censored' and surprisingly, know little about the slums to which they may well have lived literally next door. It appears evident from the level of detail and description in the text that Mearns expect his readers to know little or nothing at all about the topic ''The Bitter Cry...'' is written in a deeply emotive and detailed manner. The purpose of this is likely to be to capture the sympathy of the middle class readers, rather than sheer disgust and horror. This attitude in the writing works towards the main aims of raising awareness of this hidden class and inspire people to help For this reason the writer doesn't apportion blame to people, for the situation of the working classes. He almost begs
Character Essay The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock An insecure yet very opinionated character was Prufrock. A “seen it all” kind of attitude was through the whole poem, but there was still a simple love character beneath him that he was too shy to show. He expresses a lot of himself, though he lacks a sense of confidence. (40) “And indeed there will be time, to wonder, ‘Do I dare? And ‘Do I dare?’, Time to turn back and descend the stair, with a bald spot in the middle of my hair”.The poem starts out with verses of “what not to do with your love”, yet he fails to express the person he has feelings for but also fails to recognize himself in all this.
He did things most wouldn't find normal. It seems as though Blake had some things against him as a romantic writer. Blakes poetry tended to to have darker meanings than most romantic writers. While that still relates to the romantic theme, Wordsworths warmer poetry might've been the reason he is remembered as the Romantic Movement founder. Wordsworth would write about things related closer to love and with a more positive message.
And, is one category better than the other? Noel Gallagher voiced his frustration in an article in the guardian, stating that “read fiction is a waste of f***ing time” and that he only takes interest in factual books, in which things “have actually happened”. He points out how it is often difficult to suspend belief in something fictional, often reverting to thinking as he puts it, “This isn’t f***ing true”. Although Gallagher’s argument may appear rather blunt, it does raise an important point about ‘snobbery’ from people who feel comfortable with words, looking down upon those who aren’t. We must remember however that Noel Gallagher is a song writer himself, so naturally he writes his own fictions in his songs, which like reading, are just another medium of expressing emotion and creative ideas.
He (and we're just assuming it's a he here, since Houseman was a he and we don't have anything else to go on) doesn't refer to "unpleasant objects" or "disagreeable discourse" like a fancy poet might. He comes right out and calls it "stupid stuff." (At the same time that little bit of alliteration in "stupid stuff" is a reminder that this is still very much a poem). • So who is
Social Factors As Reflected in classical mythology society is complicated. When Thucictholous said 'people only know one thing'  he borrowed much from Sleeping late. Spanning divides such as class, race and uglyness, Sleeping late is quite good. Special care must be taken when analysing such a delicate subject. On the other hand anyone that disagrees with me is an idiot.
“If” By Rudyard Kipling POETRY ANALYSIS #1 If Rudyard Kipling If you can keep your head when all about you Are losing theirs and blaming it on you; If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you, But make allowance for their doubting too: If you can wait and not be tired by waiting, Or, being lied about, don't deal in lies, Or being hated don't give way to hating, And yet don't look too good, nor talk too wise; If you can dream - and not make dreams your master; If you can think - and not make thoughts your aim, If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster And treat those two impostors just the same:. If you can bear to hear the truth you've spoken Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools, Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken, And stoop and build'em up with worn-out tools; If you can make one heap of all your winnings And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss, And lose, and start again at your beginnings, And never breathe a word about your loss: If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew To serve your turn long after they are gone, And so hold on when there is nothing in you Except the Will which says to them: "Hold on!" If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue, Or walk with Kings - nor lose the common touch, If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you, If all men count with you, but none too much: If you can fill the unforgiving minute With sixty seconds' worth of distance run, Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it, And - which is more - you'll be a Man, my son! For my first poetry analysis I chose to do “If” by Rudyard Kipling. I really enjoyed reading this poem as it really inspired me and I felt it was empowering.
Hobbes states that because of our insecurity, we act upon our impulses to always look out and better ourselves. In this paper, while I notice the aims of Hobbes, I believe it is deeply flawed in its logic because this is not how human beings really function within the real world. In his Chapter XIII analysis, Hobbes lists some prevalent examples of our everyday behaviors that relate to our insecurity. They are; “When taking a journey, he arms himself and seeks to go well accompanied; when going to sleep, he locks his doors; when even in his house he locks his chests.” While these particular examples may appear to be valid, they are weighted down by the way humans actually behave in their everyday lives, and there are certainly plausible exceptions to the rule(s) that Thomas Hobbes presents. While mankind more often than not strives for survival by any means possible, it is not always the case.
