Example text

Gentles—do not reprehend if you pardon, we will mend. And, as I am an honest Puck if we have unearned luck. Now to scape the serpents tongue. We will make amends ere long else the Puck a liar call. So—goodnight unto you all. Give me your hands if we be friends. And Robin shall restore amends. Shakespeare’s plays are the greatest achievements of English drama, but they are also amazing pieces of poetry. The sound, which includes the meter and all other aspects of the sound, and the sense work together, and that is the key to all great poetry.

Drive my dead thoughts over the universe, Like wither’d leaves, to quicken a new birth; And, by the incantation of this verse, Scatter, as from an unextinguish’d hearth Ashes and sparks, my words among mankind! Be through my lips to unawaken’d earth The trumpet of a prophecy! O Wind, If Winter comes, can Spring be far behind? ” To me they perfectly represent the poetry of the Romantics.

And he had many hardships to endure; From pond to pond he roamed, from moor to moor; Housing, with God’s good help, by choice or chance; And in this way he gained an honest maintenance. LECTURE EIGHT The Old-man still stood talking by my side; But now his voice to me was like a stream Scarce heard; nor word from word could I divide; And the whole Body of the Man did seem Like one whom I had met with in a dream; Or like a man from some far region sent, To give me human strength, by apt admonishment.
