Alfred Tennyson's 'The Lotos-Eaters'
[ send me this paper ]
A 10 page analysis of the poem in relationship to the Romantic period and Tennyson's personal relationship to his art. Although Tennyson dealt with romantic views of war and heroes, in contrast to other writers of his day, he felt that poetry should reflect a certain formality borrowed from Greek tragedy literature. In 'The Lotos-Eaters,' Tennyson was true to his heart. As such, the poem reflects the ideals of the imperialism and his own personal goals--war begets heroes, and heroes in death go to a glorious afterlife. However, although he borrowed from biblical and Greek-tragedy sources, his characters and nature are also contemporary, and transcend all the realms together. Bibliography lists 4 sources.

Poetry
[ send me this paper ]

Schumann, Purcell and Turner
[ send me this paper ]
Robert Schumann and Henry Purcell were musicians who were separated in time by a hundred years. Purcell was composing music during the Baroque period and wrote a number of Operas that continue to be in demand over 500 years later. Schumann is considered one of the greatest composers of the Romantic era; his short, tumultuous life providing the seeds of a prolific amount of work, mostly written for piano. Joseph Mallord William Turner was a painter in the era of Romanticism whose innovative style was a precursor to the modern style. This 5 page paper proposes that the music and the visual art of the Baroque and Romantic eras are indicative of the social context. In the Baroque period of the late 1600s Europe had finally accepted that the dark ages were over, however, there were lingering doubts that set the stage for the hopeful intervention of 'light'. By the age of the Romantic in the mid-1800s, the expansion of thought and experience had brought the social experience to a place of hope that only marginally allowed the dark to interpose doubt into the future.

The Speaking Picture in Poetry
[ send me this paper ]
A 10 page paper which discusses how renaissance poetry has often been seen as a body of work which presents a speaking picture. Poetry is much like painting in that it attempts to portray one moment in time, or one moment of thought, into words.

Literature, the other art form using language, cannot do this due to the fact that it focuses on a great number of events, people, and thoughts. The paper discusses considerations concerning this form of art, with the work of English poet Francis Quarles being the primary focus in relationship to speaking pictures.

Samuel Coleridge's 'Frost At Midnight' And John Keats' 'On First Looking Into Chapman's Homer' / Portraying Artists As Visionaries During The Romantic Period
[ send me this paper ]
6 pages in length. The poets of the Romantic Period often portrayed the artist as visionaries in their works. In addressing the approach to this concept, Samuel Coleridge's 'Frost at Midnight' and John Keats' 'On First Looking into Chapman's Homer' are compared so as to realize the legitimacy of this poetic tendency. The Romantic Period was rife with visionary artists who prevailed against the odds of a time gone by when artistic impression was not deemed as being an instrumental aspect of one's existence. Blooming forth to prove the truth is otherwise, the visionary element so prevalent in the poems of Coleridge and Keats brings to light the magically illusory component of artists. The writer discusses the portrayal of artists as visionaries in Coleridge and Keats' poems. Bibliography lists 5 sources.
