The Romantic Poets And The Role Of Nature - 1,458 words
... Christianity. Here, however, he definately expresses the typical Romantic view of the natural world. Some critics have assumed that: " The Ode is 'Wordsworth's conscious farewell to his art, a dirge sung over his departing powers'" (Trilling, 123). Other writers dissagree, but none the less, the significance still remains. If Wordsworth has decided to describe his growing feebility, and loss of " the glory and the dream...", than nature has certainly been given a very important role to play (53). He chooses creatures from the physical world to relay his suffering and his intense hope. The flowers, fields and trees all ask him what has happened, where has his poetry gone too. Why can he ...

Victorian Life Through Color - 1,811 words
The use of color in Victorian literature and art has gone far beyond simple description to form it's very own sort of diction.

Furthermore, seeing these colors in the mind brings out any unconscious association, bias, or preconceived notion of what traits and emotions generally go along with a given color.

The Use Of Language By Robert Browning - 1,909 words
Robert Browning utilized the format of the dramatic monologue, the creation of expectation and surprise, and extensive use of figurative language to support the theme of possessive love in his works "My Last Duchess" and "Porphyria's Lover". The dramatic personae in these works provide surprising accounts of their tormented and often jealous love and the results of their actions determine the startling revelations within each monologue. Their possessive love not only drives them to violent acts, but provides them with seemingly rational excuses for their behavior. Though Browning utilizes the format of the dramatic monologue in both "My Last Duchess" and "Porphyria's Lover", there are a numb ...

"ah, Are You Digging On My Grave," Thomas Hardy Critical Analysis - 701 words
"Ah, Are You Digging on My Grave," is a poem written by Thomas Hardy. The central theme of this poem is death, which is also seen in several different forms throughout the works of Thomas Hardy.

Hardy takes us on a downward spiral through, as The Pattern of Hardy's Po ...
