In the sonnet, Barrett Browning repeats “I love thee” over and over again rather than using different words for love. This is to enforce the already existing knowledge about the strength of her love, and that what she feels is love, nothing more and nothing less. This is also called anaphora, and with that being used within the Bible it makes seem like her poem is a prayer. This links to the religious language used within the sonnet itself, in Elizabeth’s eyes her love is like her religion, and
Also after her show she began to show more of her true-self through her life-class. She has embraced christianity worldviews as well other worldviews. Which still leaves the question open for me what do she really believe. As I was reading the article “The Glory of Oprah” this one part Oprah makes this statement "To God be the glory," were her final words to us from her stage. She also answer the questions that she believe in the one true living God.
In the end she learns the understanding of compassion and therefore wants simplicity, not complexity like Donne’s sonnets. This shows her journey of change in literature, she is now aware that Donne has outwitted her and greatly regrets choosing words over
Kara gave Jordan numerous examples of how God has helped her throughout her life. She showed her that she should pray to God whenever she needs help or is in trouble. She also made Jordan go to a meeting about Jesus, which made her eventually believe and accept God into her life. The novel, Deep Green, proved to be delightful, inspiring, and enjoyable. Jordan overcame jealousy and fear to become a caring and thoughtful individual.
Disability Revisited Criticizing misrepresentation in media is much like complaining that a desert is too dry; completely obvious and there’s not too much you can do about it. To voice her frustrations, Nancy Mairs composes a very blunt, matter-of-fact, somewhat satirical, essay scolding media for their portrayal of the disabled. Although her position is understandable, her approach in the essay is slightly jumbled. Mairs tends to use too many different emotions to relay information and her opinions to her audience. As an introduction, Mairs attempts to gain sympathy and personal connection with her readers by describing her physical disabilities due to MS (multiple sclerosis).
Just like how we can deduce something about an artist by looking at his work of art. And this approach to express human understanding is something we possibly do on a daily basis unknowingly, the idea of using evidence to working backwards in order to derive information. And so this approach seems practical. Moreover, through myths we can express a human understanding of God because of the truths they portray and the fact that it takes us closer to the religious nature of belief. And so if poetry is the way to express understanding of a love affair, then perhaps myth in religion is best seen as an expression of the truth of faith to the believer, written from the perspective of faith.
Bradstreet’s greatest inspiration came from her religion. Her poetry was primarily personal in terms of content devotional/spiritual and emotional reflections. Anne Bradstreet was very devoted to her family, and she often wrote verses to and about them. The themes in her poets were Puritanism, motherhood, nature, feminism, sickness and death. Bradstreet's tone could be described as personal, humble, modest and soft.
In “We Real Cool,” Gwendolyn Brooks utilizes a series of internal rhymes in her fairly short and simple poem. The rhyming structure consists of: AA BB CC DD, however, she decides to end each line with “We” rather than the rhymes’ end words. This breaks up the flow of the poem and places more emphasis on each “We” as the line break causes a run-on pause. Instead of “We real cool./ We left school./” the writer fragments the natural flow of each phrase by writing the lines as “We real cool. We/ Left school.” I assume by setting up the poem’s structure in this way, the writer intended to isolate each “We,” allowing the pronoun to resonate a little longer in the reader’s mind or speech.
o Recently, I read the book " The Hiding Place" by Corrie ten Boom, edited by John and Elizabeth Sherril. While reading the book, I was noticed a pattern of major Christian qualities that Corrie possessed. Through her life story, we see her compassion toward others, her concentration on God's Will, and her godly character that challenged the lives of countless souls. Corrie never forgot that Israel was "the apple of his (God's) eye" (Zechariah 2:8). For that reason, she tried to service the Jews as much as they could - keeping in mind that Israel is God's chosen people, and she was to obey God's commands.
Then came the assistant rabbi Dr. Nadia Siritsky, asking everyone to inhale and exhale as a form of releasing anything that seem to be stopping us from experiencing Shabbat Shalon. Then she began to cite prayers while the cantor began to sing softly. One of the prayers that was cited, Mr. David informed me was the most important prayer and that was the prayer that said, “Blessed is God’s glorious majesty forever and ever. Hear O Israel Adonai is our God, Adonai is one.” I noted that some readings and prayers and songs was all done with the congregation sitting down and some were all done with the congregation standing up. Most of the service consisted of prayers, readings, and songs.
