...Analysis and comparison of Sonnet XIX and To His Coy Mistress To understand the poem Sonnet XIX, it is important to that the English Poet John Milton lost his sight at one point in his poetry career, but his blindness did not affect his writings. This poem shows how he fought and struggled with his own emotions after blindness to continue writing. Milton says that suicide can provide him with escape from the dark world of blindness but he cannot use this way out, so that would continue to be a “useless talent” for him. Milton refers to suicide as a talent because people normally do not commit it. One thing that kept Milton from using this...

...Poem Analysis When considering the poem, “O Princely Heart” by Elizabeth Browning, it can be interpreted using a Marxist view. According to Marxism, it uses materialism to analyze historical events. It also discusses the relationships of class and conflicts that arise in society. Developed by Karl Marx, there are many Marxist theories and it can be applied to several subjects. Using this information about Marxism, Browning’s poem can be analyzed to see how it relates to this social theory. The title itself, “O Princely Heart,” already determines that it is written about a person or describes a heart that is royal. This establishes a class.

...Poem Analysis “The Road Not Taken” is a poem by Robert Frost that tells about a traveler’s decision to take the road less used by other travelers when he comes upon a fork in the woods. The interpretation of his journey and the plot can be looked at in two different ways -- literally and ironically. In a literal sense, the traveler’s decision to go down the path less traveled can be seen as a choice of individualism and non-conformity. While many others before him seemed to have taken one path, he decides to take the one that has seen less activity. In regard to the ironic interpretation, the traveler’s choice could have been for nothing,...

At times, looking at the condition of the lover, one is obliged to think that lover’s body has no other parts, except the heart. The conditions of some of the lovers are like the ocean and the moon.

...Analysis of ‘Because of You’ by Kelly Clarkson This poem is about pain, mistrust, fear of getting hurt, emptiness, and the bitter lessons that one gains after witnessing someone else’s pain and misery. It begins with a resolution: “I will not make the same mistakes that you did/ I will not let myself/ Cause my heart so much misery.” (1-3) This resolution is a reaction of the pain that the other person has felt so deeply and poignantly that the narrator resolves to live and act otherwise. “You fell so hard” (5) is an example of symbolism employed to explain how deeply the other person must have experienced the blow of life.
