"Bridging" By Marge Piercy: Analysis
[ send me this paper ]
5 pages in length. Analyzing the formative and symbolic nature of Marge Piercy's Bridging will lead the student to consider paralleled issues of fluctuation and inconsistency as they are reflected within this short but powerful literary piece. As much as Piercy's formative approach indicates a wavering existence between two obvious friends, it also suggests that life sometimes doles out situations that prevent friends from coming together as often as they might like. This inner conflict with life is clearly illustrated through the poet's atypical rhythm and expressive symbolism, serving to support and enhance the poem's many meanings. No additional sources cited.

"Damn braces. Bless relaxes." William Blake
[ send me this paper ]
(8 pp) Did it ever happen while you were growing up, that someone would say -it is an "acquired taste." It meant that supposedly when you got "big," you would really like whatever it was. In our family the three items that wee given that label were coffee, scotch and avocadoes; and in some aspects the sage old advice was right, - at least I like two out of three now. I mention this, because it seems for some, William Blake (1757 - 1827) as an English romantic poet, falls somewhat in the same category. In this discussion we will examine one of his "Proverbs of Hell," from The Marriage of Heaven and Hell (1790-93), and make the effort to acquire a "taste" for Blake. Bibliography lists 3 sources)
