The Rape of the Lock Question 4. ‘‘The Rape of the Lock’ is a very empty trifle without any solidity or sensible meaning’ (John Dennis, a contemporary critic of the eighteenth century). Was he right? A ‘trifle’ is defined as being ‘something of little importance or value’ (www.dictionary.com). Thus, ‘a very empty trifle’ would appear to be near devoid of importance or value. Criticism as bold as this must be put into context, since modern critics hold the general consensus that Alexander Pope’s

The Irony of Blindness In literature, the two prominent forms of blindness, physical and metaphorical, are often very closely related and dependent on each other to exist. In Sophocles’ Oedipus the King, the significance of this relationship is carried even further as it is soon established that the two cannot actually coexist. (Searle, 7) In this play, there are many hints of irony laced throughout the tragedy. “Oedipus Rex is a tragedy of a man who attempts to flee a prophecy out of fear of wh

Slap a label on that’s a general condemnation and then you needn’t look at the unique human being behind it. The title of the book pinpoints this theme: ‘to kill a mockingbird,’ says one of the characters, ‘is a sin (because mockingbirds) don’t eat up people’s gardens, don’t nest in corncribs, they don’t do one thing but sing their hea

Specifically, Borges questions the reliability of the past – something by which

Gender Issues in Antigone One of the most devastating problems for the Classical Greeks was the women's issue. Women in Classical Greece were not citizens, held no property, and indeed were not even allowed out of the house except under guard. Their status differed from that of the slaves of Greece only in name. This alone, however was not a problem -- the problem was that the Greeks knew, in their hearts, that this was wrong. Indeed, their playwrights harangued them about it from the stage of A
