It’s something that usually puts the fear of God into students and leads to a good deal of ineffectual moaning. Unfortunately, moaning isn’t going to help you, so try to embrace it and ignore temptations to dismiss it as nonsense… Hopefully, with the help of my notes and analysis, you’ll enjoy the poems covered and understand that studying them is not as painful as it at first seems.

At 12, her family moved to the USA where she had to learn English from scratch. CIE Lit Poems 2013 Revision. I said that one of the things I most liked about Brewster’s poem “Where I Come From” was its simplicity: “It’s a beautiful example of a poet doing exactly what a poet should do: realising something quite profound, and sharing that idea with us in a beautiful, accessible, thought-provoking way.”
That’s what the best poetry is to me. It doesn’t have to be simple (though simple is beautiful: read Wendy Cope), and it doesn’t necessarily have to be immediately accessible (“immediate accessibility” isn’t a criteria for the lovers of the poetry of Gerard Manley Hopkins or Shakespeare), but for the more complex poems, there has to be that chink of approachability, that glimmer of light, that is the opening for you to “get into” the text. And for me personally, there has to be emotion behind it: explicit, implicit, whatever – poetry needs to make me feel. Why So Pale and Wan, Fond Lover? (Study Guide)

Megan Behrent, Brown University '97 The Dilemma of a Ghost , Aidoo's first play, puts on stage a wide array of characters from diverse heritages, educational backgrounds and thus, linguistic backgrounds.
Language plays an extremely important role in that it is the primary way in which differences in background and educational status are represented, and it is also central to the miscommunications that occur between the different characters.

Wodehouse Jeeves & Wooster (based on 'Jeeves' by P.G. Wodehouse) Matthew's Poetry Analysis: Summer Farm - Norman MacCaig. Summer Farm Norman MacCaig Summary: The poet lies within the depths of his mind, probably in his happy place as his mother’s family lived in the rural area, which is reflected in this story.
Everything described in the story is part of his mind, with perhaps every animal representing a different aspect of his mind. This poet always discusses the concept of having layers and layers of dreams, like how the mind is made up of layers and layers. Sounds like inception to me. The Importance by Cecilia L on Prezi.

A Martyr to Love: Mary Wroth’s Sonnets in the Early British Literature Survey Course. In the undergraduate early British literature survey course (beginnings to 1660) that I teach at a small liberal arts university, I like to introduce students to Sir Philip Sidney’s niece, Mary Wroth, also a sonneteer who began writing in 1613. Her Pamphilia to Amphilanthus, the first complete sonnet sequence by a woman writer in England, was published with her longer prose work, The Countesse of Montgomeries Urania (1621). Because we study so many sonnets by the conventional writers, Petrarch, Wyatt, Shakespeare, Spenser, Sidney, and Marlowe in the course first, students are aware of basic sonnet forms and conventions before we read her.
By this point in the course, they understand the differences between Italian and English forms and notice when a writer significantly departs from established sonnet traditions. Wroth works especially well also in courses that look at later women writers who revived the form in the late eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. Rainbow Literature.
