For instance, canons may be from a particular country, or literature written within a particular set of years among other categories. In my opinion, literary cannon helps in establishing a group of similar works of literature that are critical to the literature lovers. Since the cannon apply a particular level of validity when classifying an artwork, they help in selecting the best quality work of a lifetime to prevail.

Analysis of the Poem “Spellbound” by Emily Bronte The poem “Spellbound” written in 1837 by Emily Bronte is set in the Yorkshire Moors where the poet herself lived most part of her life with sisters Anne and Charlotte. Like the gloomy picture and severe weather condition prevailing in Bronte’s only novel “Wuthering Heights”, a similar setting may be observed in “Spellbound” and is readily felt through the opening line “The night is darkening round me.” Though lacking in specific details that must convey the reasons for the speaker who is fixed to her spot in spite of the harsh encounter with nature, the author’s work subtly figures the collective ground.

It was further stated by him that education involves different meanings for different society and religion. But unfortunately, the present concept of education, does not impart us the basics for living and leading a simple life. In this context we can quote the statement of Henry David Thoreau, where he says, “I am self educated; that is, I attended Harvard College” (p. 67) and during the early 19th century, the college indeed primarily was renowned for its food fights....

In school, education is specifically accompanied with technical competence. The training for capability involves putting in mind that training is a key word for education. In the classical American society, training has a code word for educating the poor people. Spayde opposes this perceptive of the meaning of being educated.

This is mostly because of the way that language shapes meaning. Many words that we use in our language are actually very abstract.

In many cases, these meanings are given further nuance when taken into context with the history behind a given poem, such as realizing that it was written during a specific time period or that major world events were taking place at that time.

...Literary theory and literary criticism are interpretive tools that help us think more deeply and insightfully about the literature that we read. The most common way of thinking about literary theory is that these ideas are representative of different lenses used by critics to view and talk about art, literature and to some extent culture (Makaryk, 11). These different lenses allow critics to consider works of art based on some assumptions within that school of theory. In addition, these lenses enable critics on particular aspects of work they consider vital.
