Introduction, Out of Chaos
Poetry is as old as the human heart. Long before there were libraries, before people were writing down lines, before there were even cities, commerce or any manifestation of what we think of as culture, there was poetry.
More than one critic has noted that literary works are, in some way, an attempt by writers to take the unacceptable chaos of human life...

The Highest Standard of Beauty
The poem “Dim Lady” by Harryette Mullen skillfully mimics the sonnet “my mistresses’ eyes are nothing like the sun.” Mullen’s expert use of poetic structure and subject matter highlights the similarities and the differences to the original writing by Shakespeare. Despite Mullen and Shakespeare’s pieces being written more than three decades apart, Mullen identifies the same slanted view of beauty that is present in Shakespeare’s original work, although Mullen presents his view in a contemporary fashion. The poem “Dim Lady” provides current readers with a lively satire that is concerned with flawed standards of...

Same as the other commercial advertisement, public service advertisement aims to deliver some kinds of information to the public in a short time. The reason why it is so attractive is not only the vocabulary or the grammar, but also the adoption of figures of speech, which implies some new meanings on the original idea that are lively and vivid, in order to leave a deep impression to people. There are some common figures of speech that PSA generally adopts. \

The Self-Unseeing – Notes This lilting, serious, elegant poem illustrates several of the salient qualities in Hardy’s lyrical poetry. We see here, for example, what has been justly termed his “natural piety” – the “he” and the “she” are his father and mother. We notice how the subject of beloved things in retrospect calls out here, as it seldom failed to do, the poet’s lyrical tenderness. The poem illustrates, too, that love of music and the dance which affected Hardy from an early age, and clearly influenced his style. It shows his delicate skill in suffusing pathos with gaiety, his sense of the transient haunting all scenes of present happiness. And, although it is not strongly marked by...

“The Image of Desire” is a narrative poem about a group of boys keeping vigil for a fox during the night. They have the desire to protect their “fortress” from the undesirable foe. The boys believed that their honor was on the line, as if they are soldiers in a war. The poem is enjoyable to read and not something one can take figuratively. The poem has some great rhythmic qualities and displays the story of the boys as it unfolds. I will walk you the reader through the poem line by line for a better understanding of the poem.
The poem is written as an Italian sonnet. The poem contains fourteen lines and written usually in iambic pentameter. The octave rhyme scheme is a b b a, a b b a,...

“The market economy” by Marge Piercy, is a free verse with no rhyme or rhythm, and has very few poetic technics. Piercy was born in 1936, and grew up during the rise of capitalism in the United States. This suggest to me that her intended speaker is a mother in search of work during this time. The speaker could also be Piercy herself.
The tone of the poem is consistent throughout. Piercy’s subject matter along with her choice of blatant words create a gloomy, depressing, and disheartening tone. I feel that this tone reflects the attitude American society had just after the Great Depression: “You’ve been out of work for a year and they’re hiring at the plastic factory” (26-27). ...

Discuss ways in which Yeats considers change in The Wild Swans At Coole
In your answer, explore the effects of language, imagery and verse form, and consider how this poem relates to other poems by Yeats that you have studied.
In The Wild Swans at Coole Yeats uses a memory of his youth, caused by his viewing
of the swans before him, to contemplate how his relationship with Maud Gonne has
changed over time, as well as how he himself has changed.
He opens the poem with the line ‘The trees are in their autumn beauty,’ emphasising
the word ‘autumn’ to suggest things coming to an end, the end of youth and the
approach of death. This is reflected in the following line with the word...

Parents tell it to their kids and teachers tell it to their students: “Be yourself.” It’s easier to say it than to do it. Being an individual is more than just looking different; it’s in the way we talk, think, react, and the way we listen. It doesn’t mean following a crowd of rebels because they’re not mainstream. That would just lead to another crowd that has the same scheme. Individuality is the most powerful form of expression. It all starts with your name, better known as “the real first impression.”
For a long time, I really hated my own name, first and last. I didn’t know if I was named after someone, or if these names actually had a past. If it was actually a name, I wanted to know...

What is immediately obvious to me in Blake's 'The Tyger' is the powerful rhythm the poet has created coupled with the apparent simplicity but great power of the language. Blake does this by using repetition, stress and rhythm, reinforcing this further by punctuation and alliteration ('Tyger! Tyger! burning bright'). The strong rhyme adds yet further to the power of the lines and the images they create. The power which comes from this apparent simplicity is, perhaps, what makes the poem so memorable. It would be an easy poem to learn by heart.
It might be easy to read and remember, but it is certainly not so easy to understand. Some of Blake's phrases are strange ('immortal hand'), some seem...

In “A Barred Owl” by Richard Wilbur and “The History Teacher” by Billy Collins, adults attempt to explain the unknown to children by lying. In both poems, literary devices are used to convey exactly how the adults manipulate the children to believe everything other than the truth, mainly to keep them in a state of calm and ignorance. Devices such as rhyme scheme and juxtaposition are used in Wilbur’s poem to demonstrate the effectiveness of lying to calm one’s fears while other devices such as tone and metaphors are used in Collins’ to show the effects of misinformation on the actions of the youth, as well as the ignorance of the individuals who spread it.
Wilbur utilizes the rhyming...

Death is a topic rarely discussed in society, however, in the poems ‘To an Athlete Dying Young’ and ‘A Contemplation Upon Flowers’, death is openly portrayed as the natural, inevitable conclusion to life. They depict how death should be accepted and in some instances commended. Though death is the main theme in both poems, it is reflected from different perspectives.
In the poem ‘A Contemplation Upon Flowers’ by Henry King the comparison of the life of a simple flower is made to the life of a human, in the sense that we both are born, we both live, and we both must die. Majority of people fear death, because of their attraction to worldly possessions or because of the ignorance of what...

An end to dream
Forever I loved you

One summer never ends
One summer never began
It keeps me standing still
It takes all my will

Sometimes I never leave
But sometimes I would
Sometimes I stay too long
Sometimes I would

The Paradox of Death
Death comes to us all one way or another, there is no escaping death. Our natural life’s cycle must take its course. The core focal point of this exposition is to compare and contrast the symbol of death and impermanence in the poems Because I Could Not Stop for Death by Emily Dickinson and Do Not Go Gentle into that Good Night by Dylan Thomas. Each poem offers a different perspective towards accepting death. In one literary work we have someone who welcomed death submissively, in contrast to another literary work where the author is willing someone dear to him to fight against death. Together the two literary works incorporated the same theme with dissimilar points of...

Discuss the ways in which Yeats presents his ideas about ageing in ‘Among School Children’
The theme of ageing is central in the poem ‘Among School Children’ as surrounded by youthful children during his visit to a convent school in Waterford, Yeats reviews his own deteriorating state and contemplates whether old age is a state where people can express their true selves. In 1926, Senator Yeats visited St Otterans, which inspired him to write ‘Among School Children’. The poem shows an external persona, Yeats as the ‘smiling public man’ but blurs this with Yeats tormented inner persona where he writes about his true emotions towards ageing and his disgust of his and his desired lover, Maud...

Based on the theories of first and second language acquisition, how do you think the average Malaysian student learn English? Discuss your reasons.
Young children are natural language acquirers; they are self-motivated to pick up language without conscious learning, unlike adults. They have the ability to imitate pronunciation and work out the rules for themselves. The idea of “English is difficult” does not occur to them unless it’s suggested by adults, who themselves probably learned English academically at a later age through grammar-based text books.

Due to the complex and abstract nature of the concept of belonging, a true sense of belonging can be found in different circumstances for different people. As each individual has their own desires, needs and values, they find their place in the world and a genuine sense of belonging in various avenues. Many individuals find the strongest sense of belonging through relationships, due to the fact that by nature these connections fulfill the human need for social interaction and enrich the lives of the persons involved.

Live in harmony with one another; do not be haughty, but associate with the lowly; never be conceited. Repay no one evil for evil, but take thought for what is noble n the sight of all. If possible, so far as it depends upon you, live peaceably with all. Beloved, never avenge yourselves, but leave it to the wrath of God; for it is written, “Vengeance is mine, I will repay, says the Lord.” No, “if your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him drink; for by so doing you will heap...

Research suggests that students can be taught phonics skills that are needed to become proficient readers. The use of strategies such as guessing from context, predicting and re-reading may aid, to some extent, with reading comprehension. However, according to Becker (1977), a primary difficulty in developing comprehension in the early years in reading is an inadequate vocabulary. An insufficient vocabulary will have an adverse impact on reading comprehension....

Hasbro is now challenged to take the G.I. Joe brand to the next level and market it in such a way that will allow the brand continues to thrive while preserving the brands legacy.

African American music changed drastically during the film Dreamgirls. The film portrayed how African American music was centered on the feelings and emotions of the artist, with references to religion as well. R&B star Jimmy "Thunder" Early mentions early in the film that if is a part of a song, then the song must have some “soul.” This was a belief of African American artists at the time, which is the reason why the artists were only deemed successful within the African American community. Also, sex appeal was not deemed as necessary for the success of music in the African American community because music was viewed as a form of expression, not just a product to make music.

Journal Assignment (Oil Market)
Throughout the past decade there has been constant discussion about the United States attaining most of its oil from the Middle East. In fact, many journalists and news feeds have theorized how the majority of American oil has been imported by the Middle Eastern countries, and have even gone to the extent to claim that the American “War on Terror” in Iraq was simply to attain more oil. Whether these conspiracy theories are true or not, import data on oil to the United States has proven otherwise.

1) What could account for the reversal against expectation?
Answer: size of the mainland pool of species, lack of differences in dispersal ability among the mainland species, and competition between species.
2) Why aren’t all species equal in the larger context?
Answer: Some species live in much greater jeopardy of extinction than others. The rare species, the highly specialized species, the less competitive species, and the species having low aptitude for dispersal and colonization, all these species might be missing from a reserve system if the reserves were numerous but small.
3) Why should the number of extinctions be inversely related to reverse size?

Is asexuality a lack of sexual orientation and analogous to other sexual orientations and identities?
One of the most inescapable social assumptions is that all humans possess sexual desire (Cole, 1993; 192). A related assumption is that sexuality is not only something one does, but an identity or something one is (Weeks, 1986; Foucault, 1978, cited in Scherrer, 2008; 621).
Most inquiries into asexuality have approached it as either behaviour (lack of sexual acts) or a lack of desire for sexual acts. However, Scherrer argues that the complexity and variability of asexuality also encompasses those who are interested in romantic attachment but with limited or no physical contact,...

The view that working class children cultural deprivation is the reason of their underachievement can be very rightly true. Cultural deprivation is the lack of certain rules of behavior in social situations, values, belief that something is a worthwhile, attitude and skills these are all of what society calls “normal”. Working class children are less likely to succeed in life because they are less likely to be found in nursery schools, less likely to go to university and more likely to be poor readers when they start school, more likely to be in lower sets and streams in secondary school, more likely to leave school early, more likely to underachieve at GCSEs and a level, more likely to be...

No matter whether the discourse is of corporate social responsibility or of sustainability there exists a high degree of scepticism about the reality of corporate activity. Accusations of greenwashing – presenting a false picture – abound.
We argue that this is a legacy of past behaviour when such an accusation could reasonably be made about many organisations. Our argument is the CSR is a developmental process and changes as organisations mature in their behaviour and attitude towards both their stakeholders and their ideas concerning social responsibility. Of course we also acknowledge that there is a growing body of evidence to show that social responsibility behaviour becomes reflected...
