ODE TO THE POET’S CURTAIN

Eh! What a screen with a heavenly picture;
picturing an artistic fixture
turning my bedroom to a museum of culture
handsomely showcasing the native of passion
with the exhibition of these heavenly creatures.

Hi! You scattered lightening of
illumination!
I embarrassingly cherish your illustration.
What a great explanation
for illuminating heaven’s innovation!

And you, banana shaped f

Discuss The Major Regrets Of The Slain Soldier In Strange MeetingWilfred Owen

According to Pass Question And Answer by Johnson Publishers Limited, "At the strange meeting, the soldier who has had the upper hand in the battle tells 'strange friend' that 'here is no cause to mourn', to which the soldier agrees. However, the victim regrets 'the undone years', the curtailed joys, hopes and aspirations.

The victim soldier pours out his regrets of the lost opportunity of experiencing love. Priding himself on being affordable and a comfort to others by his cheerfulness, he regrets that he will not be able to make people laugh. But then, his sorrow lies buried with him as the truth about the gloomy side of war does not get told completely.
The slain soldier thinks it unfortunate that men will not learn from the bitter lessons that war teaches. Men, he laments will continue to antagonize and fight each other continually.

The best aspiration of the strange friends has been to change the world through sheer honest labour and humane actions or deeds. Knowing that there is pain enough without the inflictions of physical wounds, he would have aspired to assist in resolving matters w

Preoccupation Of Gbemisola Adeoti In Ambush

Though the poet made use of well crafted repetition and metaphor to create perfect imageries, the evil that confronted the people of the Land was the major enthrallment or preoccupation of the poet.

Firstly, the title of the poem was an insight to the poet's preoccupation. It relates to unhealthy situations or dangerous happenings that would be read in the poem.

Secondly, the poet focused on how the harsh conditions of the people could shown with harsh dysphemistic metaphors: “The land” was repeated many times in the poem while servering as metaphors. Examples are “The land is a giant whale”, “The land is a saber toothed tiger”, “The land is a giant hawk”, etc.

Thirdly, the danger, the deceit, the people's helplessness and h

Overview Of African Religious Poetry

African religious poetry can be traced far to early Egyptian days which later spreads through the whole of Africa where it was, at first, a mere advertently undocumented chanting before it metamorphosed into written form.

The main purpose of African religious poetry is for worship or reverence to God or some supernatural beings. Over the years, different styles of African religious poetry have been seen, based on different languages and dialects.

Taking Yoruba religious poetry as a case study, the poetry was from the oral tradition of the Yoruba people. Though, strange religions have tried so hard to crowd its existence and modernizational changes have re-carved few of its contents to suit their tastes; no wonder, some music crew carved out a particular song, they called "gospel-apala" with voice so similar to that of Celine Dion.

According to O. R. Dathorne, whose article is the motivation behind this post, "Religious poetry is usually centred upon a particular cult. For example, the religious poetr

Connotation Of Mending Wall By Robert Frost

In the Literature-In-English class, which was the first period this morning, I briefly explained "Mending Wall" by Robert Frost to my students and to better their recollection, I wrote the explanation you'll read below on a marker board which was an excerpt from one of my poetry textbooks:

The wall becomes an image of limitations set by people between and around themselves so that others do not have the chance or avenue of knowing or approaching them. This was an actual happening in Frost's area-rebuilding walls annually during spring time.

[if you're a fan of Philip Larkin, you can CHECK HERE]

To Frost, the questions should be, what or who destroys the fence to make the action of rebuilding necessary annually? What is the rationale behind building and rebuilding the fence?

These, his neighbour could not answer whereas he professes humourous and ironical answers: the "elves" and "something" do no
