Personal response to Sonnet 73

This poem is comparing seasons and our life. He is especially focusing on towards the end of our lives. His description of the autumn of our life is very dreary. He portrays like this:

Upon those boughs which shake against the cold,

Sonnet 18 is a poem written by Shakespeare, and it’s a love-related poem. The general image of the poem is pretty sweet. The writer is comparing his love with summer’s day. He uses a lot of metaphors and poetic expressions, mostly to describe his lover.

Personal response to Death, Be not proud

This poem, Death, Be not proud, gave me a chance to look back on my thoughts about death. John Donne, the writer of this piece, did not fear death. Through out the whole poem, his attitude was very bellicose. He tried to deny death and considered it as a long rest and sleep. He came [...]

Metaphors were used through out the whole poem. The writer was referring to a man who always love larking, trying to call for help but [...]

Why did R&J die?:First BP

The play “Romeo and Juliet” ends in a bad way because of fate. There are plenty of evidence in the play that deaths of Romeo and Juliet was all decided by some supernatural power. For example, in the prologue, “A star-crossed lovers take their life” (prologue.6). It’s an ancient idea that the stars are related [...]

My personal response to Bog child Ch.1

A lot of exciting things were going on in the chapter one of the novel we’re reading; Bog Child.

When Fergus and uncle tally said they don’t know if they were in [...]
