Matthew Arnold

- Matthew Arnold was a poet of the 19th century. In his work, he often expressed a melancholy mood. Arnold was considered a perceiver based on his poetry. As Richard Hutton stated, “[Matthew Arnold] is neither the poet of mere self-culture, nor the solitary interpreter of nature, but something between the two.”(10) Arnold analyzed certain concepts or ideas in an effort to explain and understand life and the world around him. He was also known as a critic, because in his poems he criticized the elements of life, anything from aging to death, dissecting each element through description and subliminally informing the reader of his view on the matter....   [tags: Elements of Life, Melancholy Poetry]

Analysis Of `` Dover Beach `` By Mathew Arnold

- ... This image expresses happy thoughts. Arnold uses perfect word choices such as: “calm” and “tranquil” to create an image of stability, or “glimmering” and “vast” to describe the visual of the sense. However, as the poem develops, the calmness becomes the sadness. At the end of the stanza, it refers to all negatives consisting of “moon-blanched land”, and “grating roar”. Arnold shows the readers contrasting images: the image of the happiness as well as sadness. The sound “of pebbles which the waves draw back, and fling” creates a note of sadness in Arnold’s heart....   [tags: Poetry, Stanza, Allen Ginsberg, Perception]

Analysis Of Matthew Arnold 's Poetry

- ... Euphony can be found throughout all of his writing- essays and letters alike- but is especially visible in his poetry. Truth is more difficult to connect- as truth is more difficult to define in all respects- but perhaps one may see the construction of truth in relation to a poet’s construction of meaning. In other words, a poet’s use of devices to create greater meaning demonstrate the representation of his or her own personal truth, which is also depicted by Arnold through his sound devices....   [tags: Poetry, Rhyme, Rhyme scheme, Stanza]

Further on in the stanza, Arnold creates an atmosphere of darkness that sets the rest of the poem in motion through the lines “With tremulous cadence slow, and bring/The eternal note of sadness in” (Arnold). Not only do these lines set the mood, but they drastically undercut the beautiful nature scene originally depicted; not to mention creating a sense of unspecified or unrelenting sadness, as Bergquist suggests....   [tags: Religion, Faith, Poetry, Charles Darwin]

Matthew Arnold 's Culture And Anarchy

- ... Consequentially, Arnold believed that the industrialisation; the growth of the economy and the demands of business were futile, as intellectual and emotional development had not even been considered. Arnold’s work “argued that the rapid process of industrialism… had undermined traditional communities” (Mills & Barlow, 2012, p. 60), which is a reason I disagree with his writings. This is because I think that culture does not fit into arbitrary, static categories and isn’t something which can be measured....   [tags: Culture, High culture, Popular culture]

The first stanza contains qualities of an English sonnet; although it has no pattern of rhyme, it does have fourteen lines and posses a turn within the emotion and tone the poem has in the final two lines of the stanza:...   [tags: Poetry, Rhyme, Stanza, Iambic pentameter]

- Friendship, although conceptually understood by the youngest of children, is one of those things that seems elusive when we try to explain it fully.
