Comparing The Sovereignty Of Guinevere In Medieval...
The Sovereignty of Guinevere in Medieval Arthurian Romance I will be looking at the sovereignty
of Guinevere in medieval romance focusing on Launfal, and The Wife of Bath's Tale. I will look at
her as both instigator of trouble in Sir Launfal and as the power behind the throne in The Wife of
Bath's Tale. Sir Launfal, Sir Launfal is slighted by not receiving a gift from the queen at her and
Arthur's wedding feast: "Everych knyght sche gaf broche other ryng,But Syr Launfal sche yaf
nothing" Launfal (70–71). So Sir Launfal makes up a lie about his father being dead to leave court.
"That deth hadde hys fadyr ynome, he most to hys beryynge," (Launfal 77–78), He spends about
seven years, giving away all his money to the point that he is poor and ... Show more content on

Gwennore does not seem to use her "power" for anyone but herself. She is vain and selfish, using
the power that she has to destroy. This is the complete opposite of Dame Triamour, who has been
watching Sir Launfal for a while before she sends for him, because she loves him and wants to help
him succeed. One other huge difference between the women is that Triamoure is a woman of great
wealth and in a world where wealth equals power Dame Triamour is possibly more powerful than
Arthur, because she does not follow the traditional rules of a patriarchal society. Sir Launfal does not
seem to be ashamed of this as he allows her to help him out of poverty. This is opposite of the
Arthur and Gwennore relationship where he holds all the finances, thus has all of the power, because
they are a part of a patriarchal society, where women's rights and freedoms are

Structure, Theme and Convention in Sir Philip Sidney's Sonnet Sequence
The sixteenth century was a time of scientific, historical, archaeological, religious and artistic
exploration. More attention was being allotted to probing into the depths of the human psyche and it
was up to the artists and poets rather than the priests and scholars to examine and mirror these
internal landscapes. The 'little world of man' [1] was reflected through various artistic forms, one of
which was the sonnet, which was conventionally used for dedications, moral epigrams and the like.
Traditionally most sonnets dealt with the theme of romantic love and in general the sonneteer dealt
with the over–riding concern of the self and the other, the latter of ... Show more content on

Incidentally, although not a realistic autobiography, Stella is modelled on Penelope Devereux, who
was supposed to marry Sidney but was then forced to marry Lord Rich, and 'phil' in 'Astrophil' is
indeed an abbreviation of Sidney's first name, 'Philip'. After finding out about Penelope's marriage,
fate had it that Sidney started to truly have feelings for her although by this time it was too late.
Astrophil's actions seem to be forgiven by some critics because he is after all driven by love. In fact
Sidney's depiction of the male protagonist is one which makes some critics and readers empathize
with him during his lamentations and praise of Stella. This may be because it is thought that
Sidney's aim was to show readers how a man can let his emotions get the better of him, thereby
leading him into eventual despair. It is through Astrophil's mistakes and negative example that
Sidney is able to inculcate morality. This is also another typical quality of sonneteers, who aim to
morally instruct through their art.
Beneath the witty surface of Astrophil's lamentations, Thomas P. Roche seems to feel that 'Sidney is
using Astrophil's journey from hope to despair as a fictional device for the analysis of human desire
in Christian terms.' [2] Consequently Roche points out that in witnessing Astrophil's despair the
readers' reaction is supposed to make them conscious of his limitations from a

Hamlet's Antic Disposition
Hamlet's Antic Disposition
[See Hamlet, II.ii.159–185 in which Polonius proposes to use his daughter Ophelia as a bait for
Hamlet, while Polonius and Claudius conceal themselves behind an arras; at which point Hamlet
enters unexpectedly and is spoken to by Polonius]
Everything that Hamlet here says is capable of an equivocal interpretation reflecting upon Polonius
and Ophelia. "Fishmonger," as many commentators have noted, means a pander or procurer;
"carrion" was a common expression at that time for "flesh" in the carnal sense; while the quibble in
"conception" needs no explaining. And when I asked myself why Hamlet should suddenly call

Hamlet must have overheard what Polonius said to the King. The context allows no escape from this
conclusion, inasmuch as what Hamlet says to Polonius is only intelligible if the conclusion be
allowed. It remains to examine the text in order to discover, if possible, what Shakespeare's
intentions, clearly impaired in some way by corruption, may have been. We are left, of course, to
conjecture, but even so we are not entirely without clues. Says Polonius:
You know sometimes he walks four hours together
Here in the lobby;
and as he speaks we may imagine him jerking a thumb over his shoulder towards the inner stage
before which the three plotters stand, their faces to the audience. Words and the action are a direct
invitation to the spectators to look in that direction; and, as they do so, Hamlet enters the inner stage
from the door at the back, his eyes upon his book, quite unconscious at first that his uncle, his
mother, and Polonius are on the outer stage, which stands for the audience chamber of the castle. In
short, "Here in the lobby" is equivalent to a stage direction, and marks with practical certainty the
moment at which Hamlet comes in and the place of his entry. And it is the right moment; for the
entry should seem unquestionably accidental, lest the audience should suspect him of deliberate
spying. It would never do, for example, to let him linger in his place of

Death And Death In Margaret Donne's Post-Modern Poetical...
Donne's 17th century neo–classical metaphysical poetry is based around his own personal
experiences and the historic context. While Margaret Edson's 20th century metatheatrical post–
modern play Wit has exploited Donne's strong religious ideas and metaphysical conceits, it has
deciphered it towards a more secular context and audience. Despite contextual differences, the two
composers, through in textual reading, shares and explores the common values and ideas including
the value of relationships and the concept of death. Wit explores the post–modern nihilists
perspectives of death then offers comparisons and contrasts of approaching morality. The title itself
'W;t' being a metaphysical paradox, alludes further connection towards the structure of Donne's
work both visually and verbally, the semi–colon is significant as it is a symbolic play on death and
suggests the moment between life and death. The punctuation acts as a visual sign of 'insuperable
barriers separating life death and eternal life'. Further use of the extended metaphor of the semi
colon is shown in the deliberate intertextual allusion made by Bearing of 'And Death – Capital D –
shall be no more – semicolon'. The deviation surrounding the use of ',' or ';' contrasts to illustrate
shifting perceptions of death between the 17th to the 20th century with semicolon representing

Hot Power Yoga Review
Before landing myself in Yoga Sunné's studio in Cottonwood Heights, I had scheduled myself for
several different yoga studios across the valley. I never went to any of them, because I scheduled
classes titled "rejuvenating" or "relaxing" in the morning and then promptly slept through all of
them. I found that Yoga Sunné offered a free class at night, and that is how I found out that 90
minutes of hot power yoga is not for me. Right away, the 105–degree room slaps you in the face as

sergeant would be like if one ever took up yoga. She commands new poses in rapid succession,
progressively getting crazier as the class goes on. Breathe in, stretch every fiber of you in all
directions. Breathe out, and turn yourself into the human equivalent of tangled up headphones.
Repeat for far longer than anyone ever should. This would all be somewhat bearable if it weren't as

According to Shakespeare's intention, the whole text of Hamlet is narrated by one of the characters
who is Hamlet's half–brother, though we erroneously perceive him as if he were Shakespeare
himself.
The nature of the contradictions is explained with the fact that the text of Hamlet contains two
different plots, the one depicting the 'real' events in Elsinore (the prosaic passages), and the other
being the text of the drama staged in the castle (the pentameter portion.) The plot of the staged
pentameter drama features the 'real' persons with changed biographies. That is, the prince's age is
twenty within the plot of the staged drama while the 'real' Hamlet who instructs the actors and
watches and comments that drama is thirty. Moreover, it appears that he is king Hamlet's son only
within the plot of the 'inner' drama. In 'reality', he is a son to king Fortinbras killed by his brother on
the very day prince Hamlet was born. This feature was openly manifested in the First Quarto while
in the Second Quarto as well as in the Folio it became disguised, and to reveal it, it's necessary to
compare facts included in the text and apply some logic.

Essay about Metaphysical Poetry
Metaphysical poets use startling juxtapositions in their poetry to create a greater significance in their
arguments and intended meanings throughout the poem. John Donne is said to be the unsurpassed
metaphysical poet, metaphysical poetry being poetry relating to a group of 17–century English poets
whose verse is typified by an intellectually arduous style, admitting extended metaphors and
comparing very disparate things. In 17th century England new discoveries were being made and
social customs such as men being the dominant over women still applied. Through Donne's poetry
we can see that he is goaded and confused by the new discoveries and the social customs avert him
from reaching his desires. This is incalculably recognized in his ... Show more content on

These words help the reader to understand Donne's meaning; that new things have disrupted the old.
Donne reflects his one and only, with the most beautiful imagery in which he can imagine. Like love
itself, the woman in Donne's verse is addressed and praised in exaggerated terms. In the "Sunne
Rising" her eyes shine brighter than the sun, "if her eyes had not blinded thine". She is compared to
the "India's of spice and Myne", she is "all States, and all Princes" and "All wealth alchimie". The
"India's spice and Myne" relates to the east and west Indians, in the 17th century , the Indian's kept a
source of the world's most valued materials; spices, metals and jewels. All the exaggerated imagery
of the woman helps to stress just how exceptional she is. It helps to shape his meaning through the
poem, we see this grand, exaggerated imagery and it helps us to envision just how beautiful she is,
why she is the focus of the poem.
The movement through each stanza in "the Sunne Rising" also holds a number of dramatic contrasts.
Donne wants the reader to see just how exceptional his lover is, and through each stanza he uses
dramatic contrasts to help assert his lover in different ways. The first stanza conveys egotism and
insolence towards the sun and the pace and rhythm is very hasty. This stanza begins with a series of

The Importance Of Poverty In Poor People By William Vollmann
Poor people is a collection of interviews with first–hand sources of those in poverty mixed with the
authors, William T. Vollmann's, inner struggle and thought–process of what poverty is. Vollmann's
position on poverty is stated early on in the book "For me, poverty is not mere deprivation; for
people may possess fewer things than I and be Richer; Poverty is wretchedness."(Vollmann 36).
Poverty to Vollman is wretchedness meaning " a condition of extreme affliction or distress,
especially as outwardly apparent" (Wretched). He continues with, "It must then be an economic
state. It, therefore, remains somewhat immeasurable ... I can best conceive of poverty as a series of
perceptual categories." (Vollmann 36). These perceptual categories are the five categories in the
book, self–definitions, phenomena, choices, hope, and placeholders.
Vollmann's self–definitions include his pondering over how much education a beggar needs. If this
beggar does not want to become literate but is happy, who is he [Vollmann] to judge on whether the
beggar is poor or not, This leads him to the realization that we should respect others self–awareness
and self–judgments; Vollmann consecutively makes this point. Who is he [Vollmann] to judge
someone's sense of poverty. Being a Sacramento native, Vollmann constantly sees homelessness and
poverty, he discusses the phenomenon of everyday American citizens ignoring the unperceivable

The Flea and the Sun Rising Essay
The metaphysical era in poetry started in the 17th century when a number of poets extended the
content of their poems to a more elaborate one which investigated the principles of nature and
thought. John Donne was part of this literary movement and he explored the themes of love, death,
and religion to such an extent, that he instilled his own beliefs and theories into his poems. His
earlier works, such as The Flea and The Sunne Rising, exhibit his sexist views of women as he
wrote more about the physical pleasures of being in a relationship with women. However, John
Donne displays maturity and adulthood in his later works, The Canonization and A Valediction:
Forbidding Mourning, in which his attitude transcends to a more grown up one. The ... Show more

He uses the flea as an excuse for marriage and that they are now permitted to have sex. Out of
desperation Donne shifts to a more religiously point of view by saying, "And sacrilege, three sinnes
in killing three." (Line 18) This means that if the woman kills the flea, she is killing the flea, him,
herself, and God. However, the women squashes the flea along with his argument and Donne is left
with one final go at convincing the woman. The final stanza of the poem expresses his sheer
desperation to have sex with the woman as he deviates to using a lenient approach. He blames her
not for killing the flea, but says that her act did not damage her honour in any way, and that she
should still "yeeld'st to mee" (Line 26), or should still sleep with him. The content of The Flea
demonstrates the exact sexist attitude that John Donne possessed when he wrote his early love
poems. Likewise, the same desire for physical pleasure can be seen in the poem The Sunne Rising.
This poem encompasses Donne's ignorance of his surroundings and his obsession for sexual
pleasure. Throughout the poem he attacks and challenges the sun with contempt, and does so by
personifying it. He is obviously disturbed and troubled by the "unruly Sunne" (Line 1) and tells

Views on Colonialism in Donne's Elegy XIX and Wroth's Sonnet 22
Introduction
In the midst of Lady Mary Wroth's sonnet cycle, a sudden reference to the colonialist discoveries of
dark skinned natives appears. Bringing to mind her participation in Jonson's "Masque of Blackness,"
she depicts dark–skinned Indians worshipping the sun as their god. In the midst of her ruminations
on love and her preoccupations with her unfaithful lover, Amphilanthus, this sonnet touches on
issues close to her personal life as well as some of the preoccupations of her era on the nature of
colonialism. In particular the role of religion in England's colonialist efforts was of prime
importance. An examination of John Donne's Elegy XIX, "To His Mistris ... Show more content on

Over 300 settlers were killed, however the main settlement was spared due to the last minute
warning delivered by the Indians who had been converted by the missionary efforts of the colonists
(www.apva.org). In May of this same year, Donne was made an honorary member of the Virginia
Company. However, he was not "by either gift or subscription, an adventurer or shareholder"
(Johnson 130–131).
Of critical importance to understanding the depth of Donne's preoccupation with this issue of
colonialism is the sermon he delivered on November 13, 1622 before the Virginia Company. It was
immediately published as "A Sermon vpon the VIII. Verse of the I. Chapter of the Acts of the
Apostles" (Johnson 135). The sermon itself is often considered the "first missionary sermon ever
preached in England" (Johnson 128). Donne admonishes the investors of the Virginia Company for
not placing their duties as missionaries above, or even equal to, their economic interests. "O, if you
would be as ready to hearken at the return of a ship, how many Indians were converted to Christ
Jesus, as what trees, or drugs, or dyes that ship had brought, then you were in your right way, and
not till then" (Donne 229).
Johnson makes the argument in his article, "Donne and the Virginia Company," that Donne's sermon
was delivered at a critical time in the history of the Virginia Company.

What Is The Mood Of The Poem Corinna's Going A Maying
In Robert Herrick's poem 'Corinna's going a Maying', the male protagonist is effectively courting a

use of charms and riddles. A charm is similar to a lullaby; it exists to turn the mind off, while a
riddle is challenging; it pushes the mind and asks us to think outside the box. The use of charms
within the stanza is found through repetition, rhyme and the rhythm or sound of the stanza. Herrick

Herrick uses similes' to establish the popular pastoral nature imagery of the time. He states, "... our

judges our day, it's somewhat obvious, but it highlights the connection of the passing natural world
and the couples own inevitable death; their youth may escape them. He goes on to use a metaphor
for the shortness of life, 'and as a vapour, or a drop ofraine' (l. 63): once a physical being on this
earth, soon gone forever. These examples of similes and metaphors enforce the nature imagery this
pastoral poem is proud to boast. However, in line sixty–five and sixty–six this imagery is flipped on
its' head. Herrick connects the natural world to that of the supernatural; "So when you or I are
made... a fable, song, or fleeting shade," (ll. 65, 66). He is stating that their physical beings will be
gone, and all that will remain will be their ghosts. Soon both characters will be nothing, pulled to the
world of the unknown; like a raindrop evaporating into thin air. This knowledge also comes with the

the Elizabethan audience, birthright would still initially guarantee honor, and respect for a noble,
honor that could be lost if it was not maintained or if the gentleman's good name became dirtied.
Mowbray
despairs over his lost honor, "I am disgraced, impeached, and baffled here,/Pierced to the soul with
slander's venomed spear" (Richard II 1.1.170–171). Honor, being an extremely important
commodity in Elizabethan England, was something to fight over.
In Richard II, Mowbray and Bolingbroke are set to have a judicial duel to the death. The duel is
judicial because the winner, the survivor, is credited with being true and virtuous. The loser, in
death, forfeits claims to honor and innocence. They have told Richard their charges against their
rivals, and are prepared to defend their honor, and innocence through personal combat. Their honor,
their accumulation of virtuous deeds, has been soiled by the accusations brought against them.
Slanderous comments and claims were not to go unheeded; in fact, Mowbray and Bolingbroke

Corinna's Going A Maying Poem
Living in the moment is a sentiment that has been repeated throughout most of our lives; so much so
that most of us have long since come to view it as nothing more than an abstract concept. This way
of living is called into question in the poem "Corinna's going a Maying", where author Robert
Herrick explores the concept of living in the moment. The poem is a riddle due to the high amount
of similes and metaphors throughout it, its purpose being to make the reader think about the idea of
how important it is to seize the day and make the most of life while you can. In the first quatrain, the
speaker says how "our dayes run as fast away as do's the Sunne". Though the simile seems obvious
since the movements of the sun govern our lives, what the speaker is suggesting is that despite the
sun being such a powerful influence, we do not realize just how much it is so and that once it sets,
that is one less day we have to live out. The couplet following restates that life is short using a
simile comparing life to a raindrop – "And as a vapour, or a drop ofraine / Once lost, can ne'r be
found againe", once again reiterating the point that life is short, for when a drop of rain evaporates,
it is gone forever. This simile also forces the reader to consider that just like a raindrop which is here

Death Be Not Proud By John Donne
The progression of societal beliefs regarding our approach towards death is dependent upon the
changing nature of both cultural and historical contexts. In Donne's Holy Sonnet 'Death be not
proud' he uses second person narration to address "Death" as "thou", "thee" and "thy", death is not
considered conceptually but anthropomorphised as the poems fundamental pride. In 'Death be not
proud', we see how the rumination of death is shaped by Elizabethan values. Through the subverted
Petrarchan structure and style, Donne's use of apostrophe denigrates the omnipotence of death and
lowers its statue to the level of the poet. This corresponds with contextual religious values of
certainty in external afterlife and death as a transitory stage. This ... Show more content on

Vivian's reversion to the punctuation, "Death – semicolon – thou shalt die," is symbolic of the 1990s
literature culture wars, as Edson argues that a personal interpretation of the text is crucial to
understanding its virtues. This is seen as Donne's religious context only saw a mere pause,
"comma," between life and eternal life, whereas, modern existential beliefs see this transition as
more potent and vivid, "semicolon." This uncertainty can be seen through the final stage directions,
"the instant she is naked and beautiful, reaching for the light," which symbolises purity, peacefulness
and hope. Therefore, we see the modern context produce an uncertain, yet uplifting approach to
death. Donne's poem, 'The Sunne Rising,' expounds how his view of life is shaped by relationships.
We see this as the poet defies the natural order by apostrophising the Sun, "Busie old foole." In
Donne's context, the Sun was seen as the centre of the natural world and the source of energy and
life. Donne's irritated, jesting tone denounces the Sun's power when compared with his lover. This is
seen through the metaphorical description, "This bed thy centre is, these walls, thy sphere," which
extrapolates the apotheosistic nature of his relationship, and is

A Brief Description of the Concept of Courtly Love
For a brief description of the concept of "courtly love", a few characteristics must be highlighted.
Courtly love appeared in Provence (southern France) in the eleventh century. It consists on the
expression of love in its most sincere, chivalric and noble form. It tended to be chaste and
adulterous. It was also secret and, in general, always took place between the members of the higher
classes of society. Andreas Capellanus defines it in The Art of Courtly Love as "the pure love which
binds together the hearts of two lovers with every feeling of delight. This kind consists on the
contemplation of the mind and the affection of the heart; it goes as far as the kiss and the embrace
and the modest contact with the nude lover, omitting the final solace, for that is not permitted for
those who wish to love purely. [...] That is called mixed love which gets its effect from every delight
of the flesh and culminates in the final act of Venus" (p.122). In Capellanus' definition, it seems to
me, that the previous elements mentioned are placed out of the game of love, as long as we consider
courtly love to be expressed by the total submission of a young man towards his lady. The fulfilment
of the souls in courtly love can rarely be obtained, because there is no equality in the relationship of
the individuals. The lover's love is immanently pure, genuine in essence, but the beloved is usually
characterized as unachievable because her self is so perfect that there is not much the lover can

Summary Of Amelia LanyerSalve Deus Rex Judaeorum
Eve's Apology: Analytical Essay The lines 809 – 840 of Amelia Lanyer's poem "Salve Deus Rex
Judaeorum" is an argument for why women should have an equal place in society to men's. The
poem is actually a piece of proto–feminist writing using religious examples as a way of getting
across the message of equality between the sexes. Lanyer uses examples from the Bible to explain
how Eve is not at fault for women having a lesser place in society and why males should have a
religious motivation for women being equal with men. The poem makes it clear that Eve is not the
sole person to blame for humanities sin of eating the fruit of knowledge. In these lines, "If any Evill
did in her remaine, / Beeing made of him, he was the ground of all;" ... Show more content on

These lines directly compare the death of Jesus with the sin of eating the fruit from the Tree of
Knowledge of Good and Evil, and makes the point that killing God's dear son was a large sin
compared to what Eve committed. These lines," This sinne of yours, surmounts them all as farre /As
doth the Sunne, another little starre. "(823–824), use a simile to compare that the sin of men and
women to the light of the sun to a little star. Lanyer used this simile to show how far greater the sins
of men are to the sins of women. Lanyer is trying to make a case for why men are guilty and don't
have a right to act superior then women. In the next part of the poem Lanyer makes a direct
argument for women to have liberty. "Then let us have our Libertie againe, And challendge to your
selves no Sov'raigntie; You came not in the world without our paine, Make that a barre against your
crueltie; "(825–828) These lines are directly making the case for why women should at the time it
was have the same rights as men. The last two lines of the section use the pain of child birth as a
stipulation on why men should avoid their cruelty towards women. The way Lanyer rhymes
sovereignty with cruelty brings forth images of the subservient nature women had in society. "Your
fault beeing greater, why should you disdaine Our beeing your equals, free from

John Donne
John Donne is the name in English Literature who gave new direction to the literary activities of his
age. He is in a sense founded the metaphysical lyric, which was practiced by scare of writers. As
Dowden says, "We are told that in the decline of the greater poetry of the Elizabethan period, a
metaphysical school arose and that John Donne was the founder or the first eminent member of this
school." John Donne set up a new tradition in versification by and large Donne must be regarded as
an original poet, "a poet who gave much more than what he borrowed from his age." The word
"metaphysical" has been defined by various writers differently. The learned critics feels that
"metaphysical poetry" is inspired by a philosophy, ... Show more content on Helpwriting.net ...
Then comes a conceit which also expresses the passion of the lovers:
SHE'S ALL STATES, AND ALL PRINCES I;
NOTHING ELSE IS. The most striking and famous one is the comparison of man who travels and
his beloved who stays at home to a pair of compasses in 'A Valediction Of Forbidding Mourning'.
Here soul of the beloved is like the fixed foot of compasses as by her inborn nature she stays at
home whereas the soul of the lover is like the other foot of compasses which moves beyond the
center to complete a circle of journey.
IF THEY BE TWO, THEY ARE TWO SO
AS STIFF TWIN COMPASSES ARE TWO,
THY SOUL THE FIX FOOT, MAKES NO SHOW
TO MOVE, BUT (DOTH) IF THE OTHER DOE.
In The Relique, John Donne imagines himself lying in a grave as a skeleton with the undeniable
token of spiritual love in the sphere of his beloved's bright lock of hair forming a bracelet about his
wriste borne and because of their great love, he and his beloved will be honored like saints,
ALL WOMEN SHALL ADORE US, AND SOME MEN. Another feature is the use of colloquial
speech which marks the metaphysical poetry. In John Donne's poems, the vigor of colloquialism is
especially apparent in the abrupt, conversational opening of many of his poems. He selected
colloquial diction which has vigor, freshness and originality. He discarded literary words and
phrases which became rusty because of repetition. Another characteristic of metaphysical poetry

Acceptance and understanding are major factors that must be met in order for people to come
together. In many circumstances, it is up to the minority whom are joining the majority to adopt and
change its customs and practices in order to assimilate into the majority. However, there are some
circumstances in which the minority somehow becomes able to overpower majority and take
control. This is the situation which occurred between the Natives and the Europeans during the 1513
conquest. The Spanish Conquest of Central and South America and the voyage to the New World by
Christopher Columbus in 1492 brought the Spanish crown a great amount of wealth. The native
inhabitants which resided in the Americas prior to the discovery, saw what was ... Show more

In 1514 he renounced his property and began to preach about the brutal treatment towards the native
people in the Spanish colonies (PBS, 2010). Therefore de La Casas treatise is more reliable on the
situation that occurred in the Americas because he was able to witness this first–hand. So indeed the
facts and arguments that Las Casas makes within In Defense of the Indians are all true because he
witnessed everything first–hand. Although there may be a discrepancy regarding the number of
Native deaths due to diseases versus those caused by the Europeans, his treatises is full of true
statements. Seigneur De Montaigne was known as a great renaissance thinker who was born into a
wealthy merchant family (Edelman). He spent his younger years being raised by servants who only
spoke Latin to him. He attended the college de Guienne , a highly reputable school (Edelman). In
1554, Montagine became councilor in the Bordeaux parliament (Edelman). In 1571 Montaigne
retired to a life of study and contemplation (Edelman). In all his writings he tries to first search for
the truth by reflecting on his readings, his travels as well as his experiences, both public and private.
Unlike Las Casas treatises, Montaigne essay was not based off of first hand experiences but rather of
other sources which he read about prior to writing his essay. For the most part his essay is

John Donne 's The Good Morrow
John Donne wrote "The Good Morrow" was written in 1633, and it was part of John Donne's
famous "Songs and Sonnets which was consider the corner stone of his career. Donne was a very
passionate writer when it came to his love poems. He was born in London in 1572 and educated in
many subjects and it showed in his poems with his very strong imagery, puns, and paradoxes. He
was considered one of the best metaphysical writers ever. He liked to show his vast array of
knowledge in many of his works. His love poems were a little different from his later works when
he became a preacher. His earlier love poems were very passionate and dramatic it seemed to
express how extreme his youthful years were. Donne was said to be part of many sexual rumors
during his youth, and the audience he wrote could see that in his poem. Donne's early life he was
branded as an outsider and it did not really change throughout his life; his place in society seemed to
jump around all his life from passionate bachelor to a preacher. His current status in life seemed to
influence his work tremendously. Looking at his life it tells us that youth is the part of life that the
idea of love is mainly concentrated during this time. Later in his life he seems to settle down with
his ideas on love, and his ideas of love become more subtle. Even though Donne has study the
sequences in the love poems and sonnets of Petrarchan. He has chosen a different style when writing
his love poems, instead of writing about every

Guinevere's Power in Medieval Romances

  • 1. Comparing The Sovereignty Of Guinevere In Medieval... The Sovereignty of Guinevere in Medieval Arthurian Romance I will be looking at the sovereignty of Guinevere in medieval romance focusing on Launfal, and The Wife of Bath's Tale. I will look at her as both instigator of trouble in Sir Launfal and as the power behind the throne in The Wife of Bath's Tale. Sir Launfal, Sir Launfal is slighted by not receiving a gift from the queen at her and Arthur's wedding feast: "Everych knyght sche gaf broche other ryng,But Syr Launfal sche yaf nothing" Launfal (70–71). So Sir Launfal makes up a lie about his father being dead to leave court. "That deth hadde hys fadyr ynome, he most to hys beryynge," (Launfal 77–78), He spends about seven years, giving away all his money to the point that he is poor and ... Show more content on Helpwriting.net ... Gwennore does not seem to use her "power" for anyone but herself. She is vain and selfish, using the power that she has to destroy. This is the complete opposite of Dame Triamour, who has been watching Sir Launfal for a while before she sends for him, because she loves him and wants to help him succeed. One other huge difference between the women is that Triamoure is a woman of great wealth and in a world where wealth equals power Dame Triamour is possibly more powerful than Arthur, because she does not follow the traditional rules of a patriarchal society. Sir Launfal does not seem to be ashamed of this as he allows her to help him out of poverty. This is opposite of the Arthur and Gwennore relationship where he holds all the finances, thus has all of the power, because they are a part of a patriarchal society, where women's rights and freedoms are ...

Structure, Theme and Convention in Sir Philip Sidney's Sonnet Sequence The sixteenth century was a time of scientific, historical, archaeological, religious and artistic exploration. More attention was being allotted to probing into the depths of the human psyche and it was up to the artists and poets rather than the priests and scholars to examine and mirror these internal landscapes. The 'little world of man' [1] was reflected through various artistic forms, one of which was the sonnet, which was conventionally used for dedications, moral epigrams and the like. Traditionally most sonnets dealt with the theme of romantic love and in general the sonneteer dealt with the over–riding concern of the self and the other, the latter of ... Show more content on Helpwriting.net ... Incidentally, although not a realistic autobiography, Stella is modelled on Penelope Devereux, who was supposed to marry Sidney but was then forced to marry Lord Rich, and 'phil' in 'Astrophil' is indeed an abbreviation of Sidney's first name, 'Philip'. After finding out about Penelope's marriage, fate had it that Sidney started to truly have feelings for her although by this time it was too late. Astrophil's actions seem to be forgiven by some critics because he is after all driven by love. In fact Sidney's depiction of the male protagonist is one which makes some critics and readers empathize with him during his lamentations and praise of Stella. This may be because it is thought that Sidney's aim was to show readers how a man can let his emotions get the better of him, thereby leading him into eventual despair. It is through Astrophil's mistakes and negative example that Sidney is able to inculcate morality. This is also another typical quality of sonneteers, who aim to morally instruct through their art. Beneath the witty surface of Astrophil's lamentations, Thomas P. Roche seems to feel that 'Sidney is using Astrophil's journey from hope to despair as a fictional device for the analysis of human desire in Christian terms.' [2] Consequently Roche points out that in witnessing Astrophil's despair the readers' reaction is supposed to make them conscious of his limitations from a ... Get more on HelpWriting.net ...

Hamlet's Antic Disposition Hamlet's Antic Disposition [See Hamlet, II.ii.159–185 in which Polonius proposes to use his daughter Ophelia as a bait for Hamlet, while Polonius and Claudius conceal themselves behind an arras; at which point Hamlet enters unexpectedly and is spoken to by Polonius] Everything that Hamlet here says is capable of an equivocal interpretation reflecting upon Polonius and Ophelia. "Fishmonger," as many commentators have noted, means a pander or procurer; "carrion" was a common expression at that time for "flesh" in the carnal sense; while the quibble in "conception" needs no explaining. And when I asked myself why Hamlet should suddenly call Polonius a bawd and his daughter ... Show more content on Helpwriting.net ... Hamlet must have overheard what Polonius said to the King. The context allows no escape from this conclusion, inasmuch as what Hamlet says to Polonius is only intelligible if the conclusion be allowed. It remains to examine the text in order to discover, if possible, what Shakespeare's intentions, clearly impaired in some way by corruption, may have been. We are left, of course, to conjecture, but even so we are not entirely without clues. Says Polonius: You know sometimes he walks four hours together Here in the lobby;
  • 6. and as he speaks we may imagine him jerking a thumb over his shoulder towards the inner stage before which the three plotters stand, their faces to the audience. Words and the action are a direct invitation to the spectators to look in that direction; and, as they do so, Hamlet enters the inner stage from the door at the back, his eyes upon his book, quite unconscious at first that his uncle, his mother, and Polonius are on the outer stage, which stands for the audience chamber of the castle. In short, "Here in the lobby" is equivalent to a stage direction, and marks with practical certainty the moment at which Hamlet comes in and the place of his entry. And it is the right moment; for the entry should seem unquestionably accidental, lest the audience should suspect him of deliberate spying. It would never do, for example, to let him linger in his place of ... Get more on HelpWriting.net ...

While Margaret Edson's 20th century metatheatrical post– modern play Wit has exploited Donne's strong religious ideas and metaphysical conceits, it has deciphered it towards a more secular context and audience. Despite contextual differences, the two composers, through in textual reading, shares and explores the common values and ideas including the value of relationships and the concept of death. Wit explores the post–modern nihilists perspectives of death then offers comparisons and contrasts of approaching morality. The title itself 'W;t' being a metaphysical paradox, alludes further connection towards the structure of Donne's work both visually and verbally, the semi–colon is significant as it is a symbolic play on death and suggests the moment between life and death. The punctuation acts as a visual sign of 'insuperable barriers separating life death and eternal life'. Further use of the extended metaphor of the semi colon is shown in the deliberate intertextual allusion made by Bearing of 'And Death – Capital D – shall be no more – semicolon'. The deviation surrounding the use of ',' or ';' contrasts to illustrate shifting perceptions of death between the 17th to the 20th century with semicolon representing ultimatum while the coma representing continuation.

I never went to any of them, because I scheduled classes titled "rejuvenating" or "relaxing" in the morning and then promptly slept through all of them. I found that Yoga Sunné offered a free class at night, and that is how I found out that 90 minutes of hot power yoga is not for me. Right away, the 105–degree room slaps you in the face as if to warn you that at no point in the next hour and a half will this be comfortable. The class starts out calm with some gentle stretches, and the instructor providing us with a focus for the class; immediately following, the calmness of the instructor is flipped into what I'd imagine a military drill sergeant would be like if one ever took up yoga. She commands new poses in rapid succession, progressively getting crazier as the class goes on. Breathe in, stretch every fiber of you in all directions. Breathe out, and turn yourself into the human equivalent of tangled up headphones. Repeat for far longer than anyone ever should. This would all be somewhat bearable if it weren't as hot as St. George in August (I looked it up, that's accurate). Some of the poses were like ones we do in this course, or at least they start that way. What would end up ... Show more content on Helpwriting.net ...

According to Shakespeare's intention, the whole text of Hamlet is narrated by one of the characters who is Hamlet's half–brother, though we erroneously perceive him as if he were Shakespeare himself. The nature of the contradictions is explained with the fact that the text of Hamlet contains two different plots, the one depicting the 'real' events in Elsinore (the prosaic passages), and the other being the text of the drama staged in the castle (the pentameter portion.) The plot of the staged pentameter drama features the 'real' persons with changed biographies. That is, the prince's age is twenty within the plot of the staged drama while the 'real' Hamlet who instructs the actors and watches and comments that drama is thirty. Moreover, it appears that he is king Hamlet's son only within the plot of the 'inner' drama. In 'reality', he is a son to king Fortinbras killed by his brother on the very day prince Hamlet was born. This feature was openly manifested in the First Quarto while in the Second Quarto as well as in the Folio it became disguised, and to reveal it, it's necessary to compare facts included in the text and apply some logic. The character whom Shakespeare made to narrate the text had many reasons to conceal the truth; what has been apprehended as the content of Shakespeare's drama is actually the Narrator's faked account of the events in which he played an

John Donne is said to be the unsurpassed metaphysical poet, metaphysical poetry being poetry relating to a group of 17–century English poets whose verse is typified by an intellectually arduous style, admitting extended metaphors and comparing very disparate things. In 17th century England new discoveries were being made and social customs such as men being the dominant over women still applied.

Donne reflects his one and only, with the most beautiful imagery in which he can imagine. Like love itself, the woman in Donne's verse is addressed and praised in exaggerated terms. In the "Sunne Rising" her eyes shine brighter than the sun, "if her eyes had not blinded thine". She is compared to the "India's of spice and Myne", she is "all States, and all Princes" and "All wealth alchimie". The "India's spice and Myne" relates to the east and west Indians, in the 17th century , the Indian's kept a source of the world's most valued materials; spices, metals and jewels. All the exaggerated imagery of the woman helps to stress just how exceptional she is. It helps to shape his meaning through the poem, we see this grand, exaggerated imagery and it helps us to envision just how beautiful she is, why she is the focus of the poem. The movement through each stanza in "the Sunne Rising" also holds a number of dramatic contrasts. Donne wants the reader to see just how exceptional his lover is, and through each stanza he uses dramatic contrasts to help assert his lover in different ways.

Vollmann's, inner struggle and thought–process of what poverty is. Vollmann's position on poverty is stated early on in the book "For me, poverty is not mere deprivation; for people may possess fewer things than I and be Richer; Poverty is wretchedness."(Vollmann 36). Poverty to Vollman is wretchedness meaning " a condition of extreme affliction or distress, especially as outwardly apparent" (Wretched). He continues with, "It must then be an economic state. It, therefore, remains somewhat immeasurable ... I can best conceive of poverty as a series of perceptual categories." (Vollmann 36). These perceptual categories are the five categories in the book, self–definitions, phenomena, choices, hope, and placeholders. Vollmann's self–definitions include his pondering over how much education a beggar needs. If this beggar does not want to become literate but is happy, who is he [Vollmann] to judge on whether the beggar is poor or not, This leads him to the realization that we should respect others self–awareness and self–judgments; Vollmann consecutively makes this point.

  • 19. The Flea and the Sun Rising Essay The metaphysical era in poetry started in the 17th century when a number of poets extended the content of their poems to a more elaborate one which investigated the principles of nature and thought. John Donne was part of this literary movement and he explored the themes of love, death, and religion to such an extent, that he instilled his own beliefs and theories into his poems. His earlier works, such as The Flea and The Sunne Rising, exhibit his sexist views of women as he wrote more about the physical pleasures of being in a relationship with women. However, John Donne displays maturity and adulthood in his later works, The Canonization and A Valediction: Forbidding Mourning, in which his attitude transcends to a more grown up one. The ...

Out of desperation Donne shifts to a more religiously point of view by saying, "And sacrilege, three sinnes in killing three." (Line 18) This means that if the woman kills the flea, she is killing the flea, him, herself, and God. However, the women squashes the flea along with his argument and Donne is left with one final go at convincing the woman. The final stanza of the poem expresses his sheer desperation to have sex with the woman as he deviates to using a lenient approach. He blames her not for killing the flea, but says that her act did not damage her honour in any way, and that she should still "yeeld'st to mee" (Line 26), or should still sleep with him. The content of The Flea demonstrates the exact sexist attitude that John Donne possessed when he wrote his early love poems. Likewise, the same desire for physical pleasure can be seen in the poem The Sunne Rising. This poem encompasses Donne's ignorance of his surroundings and his obsession for sexual pleasure. Throughout the poem he attacks and challenges the sun with contempt, and does so by personifying it. He is obviously disturbed and troubled by the "unruly Sunne" (Line 1) and tells ...

Views on Colonialism in Donne's Elegy XIX and Wroth's Sonnet 22 Introduction In the midst of Lady Mary Wroth's sonnet cycle, a sudden reference to the colonialist discoveries of dark skinned natives appears. Bringing to mind her participation in Jonson's "Masque of Blackness," she depicts dark–skinned Indians worshipping the sun as their god. In the midst of her ruminations on love and her preoccupations with her unfaithful lover, Amphilanthus, this sonnet touches on issues close to her personal life as well as some of the preoccupations of her era on the nature of colonialism. In particular the role of religion in England's colonialist efforts was of prime importance. An examination of John Donne's Elegy XIX, "To His Mistris ... Show more content on Helpwriting.net ... Over 300 settlers were killed, however the main settlement was spared due to the last minute warning delivered by the Indians who had been converted by the missionary efforts of the colonists (www.apva.org). In May of this same year, Donne was made an honorary member of the Virginia Company. However, he was not "by either gift or subscription, an adventurer or shareholder" (Johnson 130–131). Of critical importance to understanding the depth of Donne's preoccupation with this issue of colonialism is the sermon he delivered on November 13, 1622 before the Virginia Company. It was immediately published as "A Sermon vpon the VIII. Verse of the I. Chapter of the Acts of the Apostles" (Johnson 135). The sermon itself is often considered the "first missionary sermon ever preached in England" (Johnson 128). Donne admonishes the investors of the Virginia Company for not placing their duties as missionaries above, or even equal to, their economic interests. "O, if you would be as ready to hearken at the return of a ship, how many Indians were converted to Christ Jesus, as what trees, or drugs, or dyes that ship had brought, then you were in your right way, and not till then" (Donne 229).

What Is The Mood Of The Poem Corinna's Going A Maying In Robert Herrick's poem 'Corinna's going a Maying', the male protagonist is effectively courting a young woman, and is currently trying to remove her from their bed to experience the day. In the given stanza, the speaker is focusing the attention on Corinna, asking her to look at her life and judge what is meaningful. There are stylized elements of poetic tradition in this piece, including the use of charms and riddles. A charm is similar to a lullaby; it exists to turn the mind off, while a riddle is challenging; it pushes the mind and asks us to think outside the box. The use of charms within the stanza is found through repetition, rhyme and the rhythm or sound of the stanza. Herrick uses repetition specifically with the verb "come" ...

He states, "... our days run/ as fast away as do's the Sunne" (ll. 61, 62). Since the movement of the sun technically judges our day, it's somewhat obvious, but it highlights the connection of the passing natural world and the couples own inevitable death; their youth may escape them. He goes on to use a metaphor for the shortness of life, 'and as a vapour, or a drop ofraine' (l. 63): once a physical being on this earth, soon gone forever. These examples of similes and metaphors enforce the nature imagery this pastoral poem is proud to boast. However, in line sixty–five and sixty–six this imagery is flipped on its' head. Herrick connects the natural world to that of the supernatural; "So when you or I are made... a fable, song, or fleeting shade," (ll. 65, 66). He is stating that their physical beings will be gone, and all that will remain will be their ghosts. Soon both characters will be nothing, pulled to the world of the unknown; like a raindrop evaporating into thin air.

To the Elizabethan audience, birthright would still initially guarantee honor, and respect for a noble, honor that could be lost if it was not maintained or if the gentleman's good name became dirtied. Mowbray despairs over his lost honor, "I am disgraced, impeached, and baffled here,/Pierced to the soul with slander's venomed spear" (Richard II 1.1.170–171). Honor, being an extremely important commodity in Elizabethan England, was something to fight over. In Richard II, Mowbray and Bolingbroke are set to have a judicial duel to the death. The duel is judicial because the winner, the survivor, is credited with being true and virtuous. The loser, in death, forfeits claims to honor and innocence. They have told Richard their charges against their rivals, and are prepared to defend their honor, and innocence through personal combat. Their honor, their accumulation of virtuous deeds, has been soiled by the accusations brought against them. Slanderous comments and claims were not to go unheeded; in fact, Mowbray and Bolingbroke refuse to throw their gages up to King Richard and settle their quarrel peacefully. Mowbray pleads with Richard to be allowed to prove his innocence and defend his honor: Mine honor is my life, both grow in one; Take honor from me, and my life is done; Then, dear liege, mine honor let me try;

However towards the end he gradually shifts the mood towards that of satisfied love.

  • 33. Corinna's Going A Maying Poem Living in the moment is a sentiment that has been repeated throughout most of our lives; so much so that most of us have long since come to view it as nothing more than an abstract concept. This way of living is called into question in the poem "Corinna's going a Maying", where author Robert Herrick explores the concept of living in the moment. The poem is a riddle due to the high amount of similes and metaphors throughout it, its purpose being to make the reader think about the idea of how important it is to seize the day and make the most of life while you can. In the first quatrain, the speaker says how "our dayes run as fast away as do's the Sunne". Though the simile seems obvious since the movements of the sun govern our lives, what the speaker is suggesting is that despite the sun being such a powerful influence, we do not realize just how much it is so and that once it sets, that is one less day we have to live out. The couplet following restates that life is short using a simile comparing life to a raindrop – "And as a vapour, or a drop ofraine / Once lost, can ne'r be found againe", once again reiterating the point that life is short, for when a drop of rain evaporates, it is gone forever.

In Donne's Holy Sonnet 'Death be not proud' he uses second person narration to address "Death" as "thou", "thee" and "thy", death is not considered conceptually but anthropomorphised as the poems fundamental pride. In 'Death be not proud', we see how the rumination of death is shaped by Elizabethan values. Through the subverted Petrarchan structure and style, Donne's use of apostrophe denigrates the omnipotence of death and lowers its statue to the level of the poet. This corresponds with contextual religious values of certainty in external afterlife and death as a transitory stage. This ... Show more content on Helpwriting.net ... Vivian's reversion to the punctuation, "Death – semicolon – thou shalt die," is symbolic of the 1990s literature culture wars, as Edson argues that a personal interpretation of the text is crucial to understanding its virtues. This is seen as Donne's religious context only saw a mere pause, "comma," between life and eternal life, whereas, modern existential beliefs see this transition as more potent and vivid, "semicolon." This uncertainty can be seen through the final stage directions, "the instant she is naked and beautiful, reaching for the light," which symbolises purity, peacefulness and hope. Therefore, we see the modern context produce an uncertain, yet uplifting approach to death. Donne's poem, 'The Sunne Rising,' expounds how his view of life is shaped by relationships. We see this as the poet defies the natural order by apostrophising the Sun, "Busie old foole." In Donne's context, the Sun was seen as the centre of the natural world and the source of energy and life. Donne's irritated, jesting tone denounces the Sun's power when compared with his lover.

  • 37. A Brief Description of the Concept of Courtly Love For a brief description of the concept of "courtly love", a few characteristics must be highlighted. Courtly love appeared in Provence (southern France) in the eleventh century. It consists on the expression of love in its most sincere, chivalric and noble form. It tended to be chaste and adulterous. It was also secret and, in general, always took place between the members of the higher classes of society. Andreas Capellanus defines it in The Art of Courtly Love as "the pure love which binds together the hearts of two lovers with every feeling of delight. This kind consists on the contemplation of the mind and the affection of the heart; it goes as far as the kiss and the embrace and the modest contact with the nude lover, omitting the final solace, for that is not permitted for those who wish to love purely. [...] That is called mixed love which gets its effect from every delight of the flesh and culminates in the final act of Venus" (p.122). In Capellanus' definition, it seems to me, that the previous elements mentioned are placed out of the game of love, as long as we consider courtly love to be expressed by the total submission of a young man towards his lady. The fulfilment of the souls in courtly love can rarely be obtained, because there is no equality in the relationship of the individuals. The lover's love is immanently pure, genuine in essence, but the beloved is usually characterized as unachievable because her self is so perfect that there is not much the lover can ...

The poem is actually a piece of proto–feminist writing using religious examples as a way of getting across the message of equality between the sexes. Lanyer uses examples from the Bible to explain how Eve is not at fault for women having a lesser place in society and why males should have a religious motivation for women being equal with men. The poem makes it clear that Eve is not the sole person to blame for humanities sin of eating the fruit of knowledge.

Lanyer is trying to make a case for why men are guilty and don't have a right to act superior then women. In the next part of the poem Lanyer makes a direct argument for women to have liberty. "Then let us have our Libertie againe, And challendge to your selves no Sov'raigntie; You came not in the world without our paine, Make that a barre against your crueltie; "(825–828) These lines are directly making the case for why women should at the time it was have the same rights as men. The last two lines of the section use the pain of child birth as a stipulation on why men should avoid their cruelty towards women.
