...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. It may also refer to a bitter or a very painful... experience. The...

...William Blake uses different poems to trumpet home several issues and topics of concern as far as relationship between man and God is concerned. In the poem “The Lamb”, Jesus is made symbolic to a lamb by virtue of known characteristics of a lamb, which includes soberness and gentleness. The core message that the writer was putting across was however built around the theme of hope and confidence in the Christian faith. This is generally seen from the answer that came out of the series of questions that was being posed to the lamb. From the answer of “child’s play”, we see a sense of innocence for the difficulties and hardships of life... English Literature ic and Modern) In “Songs of Innocence”, William...

...William Blake’s ‘The Tyger’, William Wordsworth’s ‘Daffodils’, S.T Coleridge’s ‘Kubla Khan’, P.B Shelley’s ‘Ozymandias’ and John Keats’ ‘Ode on a Grecian Urn’. William Blake’s The Tyger is one of the most analyzed and discussed poems of the Romantic era in which Blake tries to demonstrate the world of corruption and repression with a rather stark and creepy choice of words and expression. He exhibits the darker forces of the world using similar dark selection of sentence structures and words. George Ehrenhaft (2008, p.118) argues that “To understand a poem you must understand its tone. The tone of William Blake’s ‘The Tyger’ has long puzzled...

...poem that mainly describes a world in chaos. It describes how a hopeless society, not knowing what to believe in and where to go is desperate for any conviction they can use to direct their lives. However, despite the anarchy, it also mentions the undying anticipation of people of the second coming which will eventually put an end to all suffering in this imperfect world. It also describes how a savior will one day come and judge people based on what they have done here on earth (The Second Coming – Yeats, n.d.). Comparing the lines in Yeats’ “Second Coming” with Sassoon’s “Glory of Women”, I would say that one of their similarities would be how their poem described... Second Coming” by Yeats is a poem...

...William Carlos Williams’ poem “This Is Just To Say” William Carlos Williams’ poem “This Is Just To Say” conveys a feeling of lustful transgression, commented in a manner of apology but with any profound regret. An imagist by nature (logically enough as a friend of avant-garde modern artists Francis Picabia and Marcel Duchamp and vastly predisposed by Dadaist and Surrealist principles), Williams’ poems generally inclines towards a utopian socialist overture. Complementing this ideology in his poems he is ever aware of maintaining an intense sincerity"; an honest expression of a particular feeling experienced by a particular subject at a particular time and place... that ultimately catches the...
