...Auden Work and labor are two terms, which are quite often, used interchangeably. However, these are entirely different terms when one would analyze it deeply. According to Hannah Arendt “as opposed to ‘work’, ‘labor’ does not designate a ?nished object, product or durable object. The focus is more on the activities making up the process of producing something rather than on the ?nished object” (Maycroft). In other words, work can be said to be done if a finished product is obtained out of the work. On the other hand, it is not necessary that labor produces any finished product. According to Stephen Palmquist, “labor is any form of life-sustaining effort that is rooted... in the "biological...

In the former, the fact that the poet settled for the title to depict a pink mustang harbors a lot about feminism as a pink car would largely suggest the owner is a proud lady in her own class. The latter is a poem about an unidentified soldier who died in war. The paper therefore compares the use of satire as a stylistic device used by the persona in the two poems (Clifford, 133).
