- Water Girl
Anne stood on the beach, paralysed with fear. Around her she could vaguely hear the sound of her mother’s terrified screams. She knew there was something she had to do, but her mind was blank, and her legs wouldn’t move. Then, a memory filled her mind. A horrible memory...
She was standing on another beach, a small, cold beach. Preparing to go into the water for a swim, when she heard a scream. Looking up, she saw her best friend, Amelia, wave her hand frantically,...
- Stopping By The Woods On A Snowy Evening - Symbolic Setting
Stopping by the Woods on a Snowy Evening - Symbolic Setting
Robert Frost’s love of nature is expressed in the setting of his poem "Stopping by the Woods on a Snowy Evening." His elaborate description of the woody setting brings vivid images to the reader’s mind. Frost explains the setting so descriptively that the reader feels he is in the woods also
The setting is a very important tool Frost uses in writing this poem. The setting is obviously in the woods, but these are...
- Wordsworths Style
Wordsworth did not write by using lofty, eloquent language, and great issues and personalities as subjects. Unlike his contemporaries, he recognized that good poetry is "the spontaneous overflow of powerful feelings," and therefore nothing along the lines of strait-laced, stoic little old women, or grandiose dining rooms. He wrote of bucolic life: not much was said, but never were the important things left out. Life’s most elementary feelings were revealed in th...
- Angle Reborn
Looking to the world,
Looking to myself,
I feel hurt, torn,
My heart feels crushed,
Crushed amongst the ones,
Amongst the fallen angels,
With broken wings,
I lie amongst the fields,
I wait for my scars,
To heal, but they never heal,
I just feel, no longer think,
I hate those, those that question,
I will make them pay,
I will make them pay,
Make them pay,
For all that they have done,
And soon, soon they shall be gone,
And once they are gone,
- Milton To Pope
Milton to Pope
In this essay I will attempt to contrast the type of society that would create a Milton to a society that would create a Pope. Although you may be able to understand what I'm saying from my essay, the depth of what I want to say can not be put into words, and therefore I suggest that you read and compare the same information that I have. I will now explain a bit about Milton and Pope to help you get an understanding.
Milton was born into the middle class and grew up ...
- The Road Not Taken - An Analyis
The Road Not Taken - an analyis
"Do not follow where the path may lead... Go instead where there is no path and leave a trail."
Everyone is a traveler, choosing the roads to follow on the map of their continuous journey, life. There is never a straight path that leaves one with but a sole direction in which to head. Regardless of the original message that Robert Frost had intended to convey, his poem, "The Road Not Taken", has left its readers with many different interpre...
- If I Could Give Freedom Away
If I could give Freedom away
this got me an A
I see on the news, a five-year-old girl is injured in a car accident. As a result, she becomes paralyzed from the waist down. The doctors say she will never walk again. This girl must spend the rest of her life confined to a wheel chair. The freedom to walk has been taken away from an innocent child.
When I stop to think about this I realize how much I take for granted the use of my legs. I remember how much I enjoy walking along a beach with warm...

- Elizabethan Sonnets
In Elizabethan Age, the sonnets had advanced into a form with new metric and rhyme scheme that was departing from Petrarchan sonnets. Yet, Elizabethan sonnets still carried the tradition of Petrarchan conceit. Petrarchan conceit was a figure used in love poems consisting detailed yet exaggerated comparisons to the lover's mistress that often emphasized the use of blazon. The application of blazon would emphasize more on the metaphorical perfection of the mistresse...
I know about things I shouldn't know about. Things most people dont know about, and dont want to. Rape.
A word that haunts many. A year ago, I was at a party with my best friend. We were drunk, apperntly she was more than I. I wanted to leave, I didn't want to go without her though. But, she wanted to stay with her new boy friend. So I left. I walked the 4 miles home, drunk.
From what I heard, after I left, she did the same... with her new guy. Everything I say is both specu...

- Kevin Rayburs Run
Kevin Raybur's run
1968, Six o'clock in the morning
The Olympic village was quiet in its lazy sleep, but Kevin Reybur was already awake, and ready to run. The easy 8-mile morning workout was only a part of the blonde-haired phenomenon's training schedule. Later in the afternoon he would suffer through fifteen miles of pace-work and intervals on the golf cart paths and quiet streets of the peaceful suburbs of Mexico City.
Despite his short legs and strong upper body -unusual character...
- Bruce Dawes Poetry
Bruce Dawe's Poetry
Discuss 2 of Dawe's poems which illustrates his belief that ordinary things in life are a good subject for poetry.
Bruce Dawe poems illustrate his version of "ordinary". The poems I have studied of his work have been about life and how people deal with everyday living. Such poems as Drifters and Homosuburbiensis are good examples of how Dawe captures the meaning of "ordinary". Drifters is about a family who move from place to place, as the father needs to move ...
