The right answer is to look out a window to the white cliffs of Dover out to sea. Matthew Arnold was a poet during the Victorian era. Explanation: The poet's eye ranges over the world his mind reviews its past history and dreams of its future glory thus imagining how things will be when he is gone.
Now, think about that question for a minute. What does it mean? How could they know what he dreamed of? And why would they want to imagine such a thing? Humans have always wondered about their future; it's what drives us to create art, science, and technology. But what good is imagination if nobody ever uses it?
Arnold addresses this issue in his poem "Dover Beach". It's a meditation on mortality written in iambic pentameter (a type of poetic metre). I'll let him speak for himself:
There is some trouble at the back - Ah! Some one calls from the front of the house! Now, he must be quick! Oh, but there is a lady too, and she must be taken into account! They cannot hear me, but they must not wait! They must hurry down!
And now they are coming! They are coming down the path, two figures dressed in black.
When Keats, Shelley, and Byron were major lyrical forces and Coleridge was a foundational thinker on social and theological issues, Matthew Arnold grew up under Wordsworth's personal as well as literary influence. The great Romantics, however, were not always favorable influences. They were often volatile and extreme, with little regard for conventional society or its rules. Thus, they had much in common with other writers of their time, such as Byron and Dickens, who were also famous for their criticism of society and authority.
Byron described himself as a "Romantic, but not as the Romantics are." He meant that he shared many of their values and attitudes, but not all of them. For example, while Byron was willing to risk his life for his beliefs, others preferred to escape danger by running away from it.
Arnold also believed in love and faithfulness toward those who held no power over you, but he did not want to destroy society through violence like the Romantics did. Instead, he advocated change through education. Like the great poets, Arnold wanted to inspire people with noble thoughts and create leaders who could improve society.
Matthew Arnold is considered one of the founders of modern literature. His work can be found in every language of the world because of its importance in shaping modern poetry around the globe.
Emily Dickinson was a poet. She wrote about 400 poems and they were published between 1874 and 1955. The longest poem that she wrote is called "Because to Hear Is To Listen - And Who Can Tell What May Be Heared?"
This poem was written in 1876 and it's one of her most famous poems. It has been described as a woman's poem because it uses female imagery, such as flowers and music, to express its message which is love and nature. Emily Dickinson was a sickly child and she lost her mother when she was fourteen years old. This caused Emily to think deeply about death and listen carefully to everything around her because she didn't want to lose anyone else she loved.
In the poem, the speaker tells us that they would like to hear "a little voice," perhaps someone singing or even just talking. They say this because they don't want to miss anything important or fun. But the only response they get from the world are flowers that grow in their garden and some music in the distance - maybe a bird singing or two dogs barking. So the speaker concludes that they can only hope that what they want to hear will not be missed by others.
In the beginning, the poet was depressed. He had lost his love, Heliodromus, to another man. The sun didn't shine as it should have done because of this loss. So the poet decided to go into a dark cave and cry. There he met Circe, a beautiful goddess who could turn people into animals.
Circe told him that if he wanted to see the sun again, he would need to find a mortal with whom he could fall in love. So the poet went out and saw some pigs grazing near a river. He fell in love with one of them and made her his wife. The wife's name was Eurydice. One day when the wife went down to the river to drink, she didn't come back. The husband went in search of her but never found her. At first he thought that she had been eaten by a wild beast, but then he realized that something else had taken her away from him.
After many years, the poet decided to see what had happened to Heliodromus. So he went to the place where they used to live.
Answer The poet is captivated by the smooth and soothing sound of the waves lapping on the coast, both day and night. In his mind, he hears this wonderful melody. It fills him with joy and happiness.
In the beginning of the poem, the poet compares himself to a cloud because he is roaming around in a condition of loneliness and detachment...
In the morning, the poet observes the unburned limbs of a dead person by the ghat. This is an indication that new life will come today. If any of the limbs are black, it means the person was not pious. If all the limbs are white, then the person was very pious.
