Comment on Shelley's Myth-Making Power as "Ode to the West Wind" and "To a Skylark".

Shelley's myth-making power in "Ode to the West Wind" and "To a Skylark":


By 'myth' we generally mean an absolutely invented narrative  involving mystic people and so forth and typifying mainstream thoughts on common wonders or such different things. The beginning of myth lies in  the old days when individuals, unfit to shape theoretical conceptions, described the marvels of nature in wording relevant to their personal activities. The presentation of fantasy in verse is a much later     development.

Give a Description of Hell as Milton Presents it in Book-II of "Paradise Lost".

Milton Presents Hell in Book-II of "Paradise Lost":

Paradise Lost by Milton is an excellent piece of writing. It is an epic. In Book-I of this epic, Milton presents a vivid picture of Hell. Hell was created by God after the revolt of the angels. It is a place of torment. It is the gathering place of bad wildness. It is situation of waste and wild. It is the hellish world of horrors. It is just like furnace where Satan and followers have fallen. It was a place where "torture without end afflicted its victims."

Essay on the Mysticism of Wordsworth Poetry.


Mysticism of Wordsworth Poetry:


Wordsworth's mysticism is remarkable for his meditative mood and pantheistic conception of Nature. In fact the mystic clings to the truth behind the shifting symbol. About mysticism Tennyson says, "By God Almighty! There is no delusion in the matter! It is no nebulous ecstasy but a state of transcendent wonder, associated with the absolute clearness of mind." The fundamental basis of a mystic is grounded in the belief of the mystic that there is an essential unity, oneness of likeness in all the objects of nature and human nature created by the Almighty God. As a mystic Wordsworth sees one undivided changeless life in all lives and sees the one inseparable in the separate. The transcendental feeling of ecstasy and cosmic consciousness comes to Wordsworth at intervals and in such moment he becomes a living soul forgetting all about his external existence.

Discuss Swift as a Misanthrope.

Jonathan Swift as a Misanthrope:


Whether Swift was a misanthrope basically identifies with the subject of his demeanor toward humankind in his ironical works. The title of misanthrope is saved normally for somebody who loathes or questions humankind. Quite a bit of Swift's humorous work display neither contempt nor doubt. Quick, nonetheless, plainly discovers mankind imperfect. Those blemishes, especially the pride of mankind, fill in as the meat of his work.

Blank verse refers to unrhymed verse, particularly that form of unrhymed heroic verse which is commonly employed in English dramatic and epic poetry. Blank verse can be composed in any meter and with any amount of feet per line (any line length), though the iamb is generally the predominant foot. Along with the iamb there are 3 other standard feet and a number of variations that can be employed in a blank verse poem. It is difficult--almost impossible--to write a blank verse poem consisting of all iambs and other types of feet get used more often than one may think. These are:

Critically Comment on Swift’s Satirical Technique in the First Two Books of "Gulliver’s Travels".

Satirical Technique in the First Two Books of "Gulliver’s Travels":


Jonathan Swift is one of the greatest satirists of English literature. He had a sort of political background in his early career. He worked as the Chief Publicity Agent and Adviser to the Tory Ministry of Harley and St. John from 1710 to 1713. He, therefore, saw at close quarters the working of the courtiers and the politicians and he was filled with disgust. This disgust is reflected in his famous prose "Gulliver’s Travels".
