  1. By what means and how effectively does the poem present the monologist?

    I feel that to paint someone is to capture and keep them as a memory, or to 'freeze' them as an object, in the sense that you can transform a person in to a muse at which to look at, in to a thing of pure aesthetic beauty, without the portrayal of possible protest or strife that may be present in true life. I believe the latter thought to be very relevant in the Duke's way of thinking regarding his wife.

  • Discuss Blake's treatment in the Songs of the forces that hinder human potential

    "In conclusion, Blake presents a scathing indictment of the forces which he saw all around him in his home in London that were working to limit human potential. Blake explores several of these forces in a variety of different manners, from stark presentation to subtle, haunting imagery. At every turn, Blake forces the reader to acknowledge exactly what is going on around them with such indignant questions as those asked in The Chimney Sweeper of experience. However, although it is in this way that Blake explores the forces of evil around him, the Songs are also a source of great joy. His perception, incite and resultant cutting critique of the society around him is placed with a simpler, more pastoral ideal that many believe to be truly, glimpses of heaven.

  • To what extent does religious poetry appeal to readers who hold religious beliefs?

    "In conclusion, poetry has a wide audience and therefore should not be limited to one view or readers. As shown from Blake's poems and Robert frost, poetry has many hidden meanings which can appeal to people who not only hold religious beliefs but who also hold a general interest in it."
