Hemingway's Paris and the american exodus You are the lost generation, said Gertrude Stein, the woman that knew them well. You could see them sitting in the cafes all day long, busy drinking and socializing, or boxing in the gym, playing tennis. Ernest Hemingway was one of them, one of the many american expatriots that came to Paris in the 1920's. They were mostly writers, some artists, all reunited on the left bank, all in search of happiness and inspiration. Hemingway put his sejour in Paris

She Walks in Beauty
She Walks in Beauty
She Walks in Beauty George Gordon Noel Byron's poem titled, She Walks in Beauty, plainly put, is a love poem about a beautiful woman and all of her features. The poem follows a basic iambic tetrameter with an unaccented syllable followed by an accented syllable that allows for a rhythm to be set by the reader and can be clearly seen when one looks at a line: She walks / in beau / ty like / the night. T.S. Eliot, an American poet criticizes Byron's work by stating the poem, needs to be read

Lady Macbeth in The Tragedy of Macbeth; the Iron Butterfly In William Shakespeare's, The Tragedy of Macbeth, Lady Macbeth is the dominator of the play. Lady Macbeth's character is not as eclectic as her husband's but it is just as dramatic. Lady Macbeth has a rich and fascinating combination of qualities. She is not a monster without feeling; her husband adores her, for example, Be innocent of the knowledge, dearest chuck, (III, ii, 45). Macbeth also refers to Lady Macbeth as his dear partn

In the twentieth century, particularly the past two decades, the political power to influence others resides in information: the more information you have and the more you know how to use it, the more potential influence you have.

Lawrence Ferlinghetti's Politics I hope I won't seem too politically incorrect for saying this but after immersing myself in the writings of the guilt-obsessed asexual Jack Kerouac, the ridiculously horny Allen Ginsberg and the just plain sordid William S.

On Earth as it is in Hell Many times we hear of society’s affect on people; society influencing the way people think and act. Hardly mentioned is the reverse: peoples’ actions and lifestyles affecting society as a whole and how it is characterized. Thus, society is a reflection of its inhabitants and in The Great Gatsby, by F. Scott Fitzgerald, it is a wasteland described as the valley of ashes. Since the characters of this novel make up this wasteland, aren’t they the waste? Symbolically, thi

“The Quest For Love” In many novels in J.D. Salinger’s library of books, there is a recurring theme of the loss of innocence of children, the falling and the confusions of childhood, and many other ideas that apply to the ideas of adolescence and the life of the average teenager growing up. Many of his themes occur in a short period of time in a child’s life that affects him/her in a very profound and significant way. The idea of love is also a major theme that arises in many of his characters

In Hawthorne's revered novel The Scarlet Letter the use of Romanticism
In Hawthorne's revered novel The Scarlet Letter, the use of Romanticism plays an important role in the development of his characters. He effectively demonstrates individualism in Hester to further our understanding of the difficulties of living in Boston, the stern, joyless world of Puritan New England. It is all gloom and doom. If the sun ever shines, one could hardly notice. The entire place seems to be shrouded in black. The people of this society were stern, and of course repressive. They a

Nathaniel Hawthorne's The Scarlet Letter, provides us with intricate characters to analyze and evaluate. Hawthorne carefully constructs his characters, giving them each different emotions, values, physical attributes, and thus creating different souls.

A day at the beach I run down the boardwalk, not worrying about getting splinters in my tender feet. Every ten or fifteen feet I stop, sometimes to smell the salty sea air, but mostly to wait for my parents who plod along behind carrying chairs, coolers, and other beach paraphernalia. I yell back to them to hurry, and they reply that I can run ahead and find a good spot. I yelp with glee and run as fast as my little legs will carry me. I stop where the dark, brown of the boardwalk meets the lig

Every poem has an element of God in it's words. Just as God spoke through the writings of Peter or Matthew, elements of His word are in the beautiful themes in poetry.

Many poems written by the same author often have similar themes. The authors usually believe in something very strongly and their poems usually reflect such a nature. Sometimes poets reflect aspects of their personal life in their poems. In the poems The Lamb and The Tiger, by William Blake, the poet discusses similar themes in both. In the poem The Lamb, I interpret that William Blake discusses many points questioning creation and religion. He describes the lamb as being an object of inn

The sonnet ³London, 1802² written by William Wordsworth, and ³The Lamb² written by William Blake both contain elements of Romanticism. Both of the poems clearly follow a structure similar to Abrams¹ Romantic formula, which is composed of a realistic setting, visionary experience, and return to a setting with insight. Both ³London, 1802² and ³The Lamb² are composed of the above elements yet they differ in their approach to each element. Each poem has its unique atmosphere or tone. This leads one

To be considered a human being one must be subject to or indicative of the weakness, imperfections, and fragility associated with human beings.
