Robert Browning's "Home-Thoughts, from Abroad" GRIN Verlag

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Seminar paper from the year 2008 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, printed single-sided, grade: 1,0, University of Vienna (Institut für Anglistik & Amerikanistik), course: Literature Course - Blockbuster Poetry, language: English, abstract: Home-Thoughts, from Abroad was written in about 1845 and appeared in Browning s collection Dramatic Romances and Lyrics. In 1844, before its publication, Browning felt himself in need of a change, a trip to southern Italy to complement his visit in 1838 to northern Italy, where he had found artistic renewal (Ryals 201). So Browning had already spent some time in Italy, which later became his second homeland, before writing this poem. Thus, the longing for England expressed in it is very likely to result from a biographical impetus and therefore gains in sincerity. Taking this biographical context into account, one might immediately have the impression that Home-Thoughts, from Abroad represents an expression of patriotic loyalty (Ryals 212). In order to substantiate this claim, it is necessary to take a closer look at it, and examine how Browning turns his feelings of longing, homesickness and nostalgia into a concrete poetic act.

Seminar paper from the year 2009 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 2,0, University of Kassel, language: English, abstract: In summary, in this paper the poem "Portrait of a Lady" written by T. S. Eliot has been placed in a beginning of the 20th century genre of portraiture in painting and regarded as a modern portrait. There is a remarkable similarity of techniques implied in Eliot s poem and used by modern portrait artists such as different media of expression, technique of deconstruc-tion, incomprehensible image and flatness. The poem represents a dual portrait of an elderly lady and her friend, the young narrator. Both figures are characterised by their dramatic monologues from different perspectives. A great deal of the impressive effect of the poem is achieved through dramatic verse that exactly express the tones of the lady s speech. The free verse and effects of rhythm help to provide this impression. The technique of disembodiment and fragmentation used by Eliot shows certain similarities to cubist portrait artists who broke the portrayed subject up and re-assembled it in a new form. Furthermore, "Portrait of a Lady" provides a shifting succession of thoughts, consciousness, protean in its variety of music and tone and depicts the figures internal drama without creating a comprehensible image of their appearance. In addition, the lady imitates in her speech Arnold and expresses her feelings through quotations and, therefore, is mentally absent, though she eliminates the narrator s consciousness of himself as facing her. However, the observer registers the look of absorption which dominates the imaginary face of the lady. This effect of flatness is directly connected with modern portrait painters such as Édouard Manet. Therefore, it can be concluded that Eliot s "Portrait of a Lady" is a notable example of the modern portrait in poetry.

Seminar paper from the year 2006 in the subject American Studies - Literature, grade: 1,2, Ernst Moritz Arndt University of Greifswald (Anglistik/ Amerikanistik), course: Proseminar: American Poetry, language: English, abstract: Analyse des Gedichtes "The Raven" geschrieben von Edgar Allan Poe. (In Englisch)Seminar paper from the year 2006 in the subject American Studies - Literature, grade: 1,2, Ernst Moritz Arndt University of Greifswald (Anglistik/ Amerikanistik), course: Proseminar: American Poetry, language: English, abstract: The power of literature is a great one indeed. It absorbs us, transforms our environment, changes our way of thinking. For a moment we are able to live another life, try different opportunities and imagine fantastic worlds. Especially poems seem to touch us within our deepest soul. A poem can often say things that might never be said in any other way. It gives us goose bumps and butterflies in our stomach; it makes us cry, makes us laugh, makes us feel better- makes us think. Poetry expresses not only love, or disgust, but also giddy elation, mild bemusement, wild imagination and any other feelings we can or cannot imagine. Throughout the years many authors have expressed their opinions, hopes and critics in magazines, in books filled with pages and pages of poetry. Nevertheless some of them clearly stand out with their life and their work. Some of them are authors that made great contributions to the world of literature and that are still unforgotten. One of them is Edgar Allan Poe. Edgar Allan Poe did not only have a great influence on the development of horror and fantasy genres, he also stands (with Mary Shelley) for a new strain in literary Romanticism, later called Gothic. Poe is known as the father of the American short story and the detective story, but furthermore he wrote wonderful pieces of poetry. (Magistrale 2001: xiii) Tony Magistrale writes in his book Student Companion to Edgar Allan Poe : Poe was one of those rare literary geniuses who not only labored successfully in multiple genres- poetry, fiction, the essay- but also went on to contribute significantly to defining and exploring the fullest range of possibilities inherent in these genres. (Magistrale 2001: xii) One of his most famous poems that spread out through the world and got translated into many languages is The Raven . This essay offers a summary and an interpretation of The Raven and tries to respect Poe s own analysis in The Philosophy of Composition . Nevertheless, when reading or analyzing a poem it is always profitable to read about the life of the poet, too. Some of his biographical facts may be the link to understand his way of writing. That s why this essay also deals with Edgar Allan Poe s life and the time he grew up.

Sigurd F. Olson was the most beloved wilderness advocate of his generation. His renowned writings, including the nature classics The Singing Wilderness and Listening Point, evoke the singular beauty and richness of the northern woods and lakes and reveal a philosophy of preservation that is as eloquent and relevant today as when he first wrote. The wilderness was the spring of happiness in Olson's life, and he devoted himself to the pursuit of sharing this magic with others and ensuring its future existence.Revealing Olson's understanding and love of wilderness, Spirit of the North gathers together for the first time the most quotable and memorable of his well-loved passages gleaned not only from published works, but also from personal letters, journal entries, and speeches. Reflective, anecdotal, and universally poignant, this book is a chronology of thoughts and experiences that ebb and flow in their assuredness and reveal the whole man, a wilderness icon mired in doubt while he doggedly refused to abandon his dreams. David Backes, preeminent Olson biographer and scholar, contributes an introduction to each chapter, illuminating the historical context and personal significance of Olson's words.Frequently, during a quiet moment of contemplation on a canoe trip, Olson would read brief passages of poetry and prose scrawled on small scraps of paper for inspiration and peace of mind. Similarly, Spirit of the North is the ideal wilderness companion, passionate, authentic, and deeply reverent of the natural world.Sigurd F. Olson (1899-1982) introduced generations of Americans to the importance of wilderness through his work as a conservation activist and popular writer. He served aspresident of the Wilderness Society and the National Parks Association and as a consultant to the federal government on wilderness preservation and ecological problems. He earned many honors, including the highest possible from the Sierra Club, the National Wildlife Federa
