• Context beforehand: A fight between the 2 family members took place, resulting in the death of Tybalt and Mercutio. The Benvolio tells Romeo to leave before anyone catches him. • The mood: serious, horrific and dread as he recounts the events of the fight and death. • The mood is important because it shows the major effects of the family feud (i.e. Tybalt and Mercutio’s death) • Elegy is about a “bloody fray”, but leaves out parts of Mercutio’s insults to Tybalt.
In the scene before the battle of Harfleur, he unites himself with his men, he says “We few, we happy few, we band of brothers. For he today that sheds his blood with me Shall be my brother; be he ne’er so vile, This day shall gentle his condition”. Another speech Henry V made is “once more unto the breach”, the meaning of this is ‘let us try again, one more time’. The breach is the gap in the wall of the city of Harfleur, which the English army held under siege. Henry was encouraging his troops to attack the city again, even if they have to ‘close the wall with English dead’.

Braveheart vs. Gladiator Both Braveheart and Gladiator are highly acclaimed movies with complex themes and motifs. Braveheart is the story of a Scottish man, William Wallace, who seeks to rid his homeland of English rule after his wife is murdered by English soldiers. Gladiator is the story of a Roman general named Maximus who escapes his execution and using an alias, rises in ranks to become a great gladiator in order to seek revenge against Commodus, a corrupt prince who murdered Maximus’s family. Both movies share the common themes of love, revenge, and freedom but present them in different ways. One of the greatest overriding themes in both movies is the concept of love.
One past influence he pulls inspiration from for this painting was a sculpture done by a highly regarded Italian artist in Rome in 1665. He was also greatly influenced by Classical Renaissance artists, one of which was the legendary Raphael. He made his figures look round and realistic and modeled them in light and shadow like Raphael (Basquin 34). A present day influence at that time that was greatly affecting the shape of art, was that of Dr. Sigmund Freud’s psychoanalytic views on the unconscious mind. Salvador Dali himself talked very highly of Freud and about how much he had influenced him.
Philip Mayerson is a professor at NYU. He is often recognized for the book, Classical Mythology in Literature, Art, and Music. During his writing he compares mythology with the modern literature, the influence over the artistic ambit, and the musical composition in the western civilization. During his book we can perceive the observations that Mayerson’s does on the three great tragedians of ancient Greece. He notes that Sophocles took his tales directly from the sources and gave them a fairly forward treatment in the tragedies.
Writers used the spirit of the revolution to distinguish their poetic sensibilities. The affects of war are apparent in my review of the following sources on the subject of war and rebellion in Mary A. Favret’s “Coming Home: The Public Spaces of Romantic War,” Nancy Rosenblum’s “Romantic Militarism,” J.L. Talmon’s “Introduction and Romanticism” in Romanticism and Revolt: Europe 1815-1848, and Samuel Coleridge’s “Fears in Solitude.” Although these works concern themselves with different themes, the central subject depicted in each is the perception of war from those who were involved—directly and indirectly—and the ways in which they were affected. Favret’s chapter depicts war from the perspective of the English public and discusses the effects it had on the domestic front, as well as the ideology of the “war-widow”. In contrast to this, Rosenblum’s article explores the perception of war from the view of the solider and the tension between “Romantic militarism” and liberalism.
Although Charles did many bad and dangerous acts, it wasn’t only Charles fault the civil war started. This essay will tell the reader who was to blame and why they were to blame. In my opinion I think that it was Charles fault because he made many greedy and stupid mistakes. Religious causes Long term causes Charles believed that when he became king he inherited from his father, the divine right of kings. This meant that he thought that God guided him in everything that he did or said.
He is noted for his controversial works such as the poem V as well as his works from Ancient Greek. Old Man Old Man written by U.A. Fanthorpe is powerfully about those who are dis empowered while Long Distance is about the permanence of the ones we love. Similarly, both poets wrote about their relationship with their parents and the transitions and changes that they experienced. However, both poems were different in terms of purpose.
fAnthem for Doomed Youth Anthem for Doomed Youth is a Petrarchan sonnet written by Wilfred Owen about the horrors of war. Owen himself, had fought in World War I and wrote about his first hand experiences as a soldier. In this poem, you can see a sense of irony in the fact that it is a sonnet. Other established poets such as Shakespeare had used sonnets to mainly write about love. Going on to the title, it can be seen as a strong contradiction by coupling together the phrases ‘anthem’ and ‘doomed youth’.
