Analysis Of Sonnet 10 By William Shakespeare


Sonnet 10 is composed as one of the many William Shakespeare's sonnets. William Shakespeare (1564-1616) was born in Warwickshire, England. Everybody remembers him for the drama "Romeo and Juliet" among his many other beautiful contributions to art and literature.

Shakespeare held importance to love, life, death and nature; his poetry and drama mostly revolve round such subjects. In this poem, part of the message is (a) placing virtue above pleasure (b) love is give and take. The person addressed in the poem, pretend not to possess affection towards any; all in the name of maintaining virtue: "For shame, deny that thou bear’st love to any/ Who for thyself art so unprovident." The poet considered such act to be very unwise and self inflicting kind of pain.

Analysis Of A Postcard From The Volcano By Wallace Stevens


From the title of the poem, the poet considered this classic work of art to be a postcard that would be found amidst the wreck caused by volcano. The poet, through the eyes of foreshadowed imagination, was seen thinking about what the little children who later found their skeletons would think about them.

In his imagination, he assumed the children wouldn't know how agile and fast they could run like "foxes on the hill" and the reaction on their skeletal faces would tell the children how they felt when "The spring clouds blow/ Above the shuttered mansion house/ Beyond our gate and the windy sky/ Cries out a literate despair."
