Once upon a time a frog croaked in Bingle Bog all the night beginning from dusk to dawn. All the creatures hated his loud and unpleasant voice but still they did not have any other option. The voice came out from the sumac tree where every night the frog sang till morning. He was so determined and a…lso shameless that neither stones, prayers or sticks nor the insults or complaints could divert him from singing. One night, a nightingale started casting her melody in the moonlight to which both the frog and the other creatures were left dumbstruck. The whole bog remained, rapt and admired her voice and applauded her when she ended. The frog was obviously jealous of his rival and had finally decided to eliminate her. So, the next night when the nightingale was again preparing to sing, the frog's croak disturbed her. On being asked about himself by the nightingale he answered that he owned the sumac tree and he had been known for his splendid voice. Also he said that he had written a number of songs for the Bog Trumpet. The nightingale asked him whether he liked her song or not. The frog said that the song wasn't bad but too long and it lacked some force. The nightingale was greatly impressed that such a critic had discussed her song. She said that she was happy that the song was her own creation. To this the frog said that she needed a proper training to obtain a strong voice otherwise she would remain a beginner only. He also said that he would train her but would charge some fee. Now, the nightingale was flushed with confidence and was a huge sensation, attracting animals from miles away and the frog with a great accuracy charged all of them admission fee. The frog began her vocal training despite of the bad and rainy weather where even the nightingale had first refused to sing. But the frog forced her to sing for six hours continuously till she was shivering and her voice had become rough and unclear. But, somehow her neck got clear the next day and she was able to sing again collecting a breathless crowd including rich ladies kings queens etc. To all this, the frog had both sweet and bitter feelings. Sweet because he was earning lots of money and bitter because of jealously as his rival was earning name and fame. Everyday, the frog scolded her to practice even longer finding out her little mistakes like nervousness not laying more trills and frills etc. He reminded her that she still owed him sixty shillings and that s why the crowd should increase. But the condition of nightingale was getting worsened. Her tired and uninspired song could no longer attract the crowd. She could not resist this as she had become used to applause and thus had become miserable too. The heartless frog scolded her even then calling her a brainless bird. She trembled, puffed up, burst a vein and died. The frog said that he had tried to teach her but she was foolish, nervous and tensed and moreover much prone to influence. Then, once again the frog's fog horn started blearing unrivalled in the bog. The moral of the poem is that being inspired and influenced by someone much unknown and strange is indeed a foolish work. The nightingale could have very well judged that how could the frog with such a harsh voice be music maestro and she had to suffer for her misjudgment. Many people in the human society also try to take advantage of the innocence or ignorance of the people. ( Full Answer )

The first stanza of the poem illustrates the practice of self-confidence and expresses that, in being confident; the reader must have the courage to face unpopularity and disagreement. This stanza advises against self-confidence that does not allow for the consideration of opposing ideas. In urging …the reader to ignore doubt and make allowance for doubt Kipling creates a paradox that is characteristic of the tone of the entire poem. Line 5 advises patience, line 6 advises honesty, and line 7 advises fortitude of character. These three lines, along with the first four lines of the poem, share a common thread: they provide instruction in the maintenance of righteous behavior in the face of unrighteousness. However, in line 8, Kipling is quick to qualify his advice, telling the reader "yet don't look too good, nor talk too wise." That is, in behaving righteously, a person must avoid self-righteousness. The meter of the first stanza moves along at a set and predictable pace. If it were to be read aloud, the smooth pace of the regular meter would reflect a quietness of tone-a tone that reflects the humility Kipling seems to be advocating in the last two lines of stanza 1.

The story 'Tribute' traces the process of repentance that starts for Babuli when he receives a letter from his elder brother about the partition of his village property amongst the three brothers. This letter removes the strands of complacency, which have gathered around him in his pursuit to become… a 'city babu'. Preoccupied with his wife and job, he had forgotten his mother, brothers and their families. Discussing the partition with his wife only reveals her greed for money and total indifference to Babuli's feelings. When he goes back to his village, the sight of his brother brings back a flood of childhood memories. His elder brother is an epitome of sacrifice and selfless love. Babuli remembers how his elder brother would carry his school bag for him, serve him his favourite fish curry prepared exclusively for him and cover Babuli with his own blanket as an extra protection on a cold winter night. His elder brother had mortgaged his watch to raise money to send Babuli for an interview to Delhi. Everything was done so ungrudgingly and with so much love! Nothing had changed him - his seven children, cattle, fields, and household responsibilities. The second brother, pressurised by his wife, had sold his soul to greed and had become adamant about the partition. Babuli compares the partition to the act of a butcher, slicing out the flesh of the domestic body which bad been nourished with years of love and care. When the partition actually takes place, the elder brother watches on stoically and dispassionately giving into the second brother's demands in everything. When the elder brother shows Babuli his share of the paddy fields, Babuli's repentance is complete. He sees the fruits of his elder brother's hard work in every crop. He realises that his only true wealth is his brother from whom he has harvested everything in life. Finally overcome with acute guilt and shame, he goes back to Bhubaneswar, leaving his share of land to his elder brother as a tribute to his brothers concern and exemplary love for him.

Rain in Summer is a short poem about all the joy and comforts the rain brings. It begins by simply stating how beautiful the rain really is; everything seems to become more alive and vibrant in nature. It can make something as ugly as dull and dirty streets seem to glisten with beauty. The way the r…ain flows reminds the author of animals scurrying freely. It clatters on rooftops and gushes in drainpipes trying desperately to push through. The pouring rain flows as swift and mighty as a raging river, but is always welcome. It has a mysterious power to soothe even the sickliest souls as it twists and turns. It brings certain calmness and people are grateful. Children run outside almost as if to greet the incoming rain. And no matter how high the waters get, it's never high enough to spoil their fun. But nothing welcomes the rain more then the dry plains and hillsides. It brings refreshing moisture to quench the dry and longing roots. The author mentions the thankfulness of the oxen as if they were being given a break from their tiresome labor. Just the smell of the rain only gives them joy and inspiration to toil on. The look in their eyes says thanks to God more effectively than any humanly spoken thank you. And as the rain beats on the farmer's crops, to the point of bending, he takes a moment to soak it all in, and in that, he sees it as no great loss. The author then sticks himself in the poem saying that only someone as open-minded as a poet can see all the beauty the rain brings. It dances freely amongst the clouds and over the abounding fields.

Toads Revisited by: Philip Larkin The poem describe a midlife crisis from the viewpoint of a middle age man, and lists the prejudices he has adopted for himself to justify his life. What he does not realize is that in cleawing to those prejudices, by despising the weak and infirm, the recupera…ting and the young, he also distances himself from life and loses the ability to simply live it. Instead he is left only with his 'power' to lord it over his secretary and office workers, while dreading the end of working hours when he will have nothing to do but go home and be a person among others. A fate akin to death, in his view. ( Full Answer )
Poem Summary Lines 1-8 These lines describe the narrator having crossed paths with some of the Dubliners who would become leaders of the Easter Rising. Their vitality is set against a contrasting background of the deadening places where they work - "counter or desk" - that are old and perhaps dirt…y, indicated by "grey / Eighteenth-century houses." The vital souls Yeats meets occasionally will be those ushering in the modemera of Ireland. But with them, the narrator engages in only small talk. Lines 9-14 In describing these future revolutionaries, the speaker emphasizes their commonness, their status as ordinary "good old boys." Or, on the other hand, their commonness might be negative, serving as grounds for mocking in the company of more cultured men at the club. But whether these would-be revolutionaries are merely common or dreadfully common, the backdrop of a drab Ireland sets off the farcical character of its idealistic people and the cynical character of its realists. Lines 15-16 These two lines jolt, employing a shock cut from a depiction of a mundane and shallow Ireland to one of dead solemnity. If the reader has no knowledge of the Rising, he or she is immediately locked in: What could this "terrible beauty" be, one that completely changed everything? On the other hand, if the reader is in the know, he or she is likely to be intrigued or impressed with the description, which consists of an oxymoron - an especially provocative one at that. Lines 17-23 This stanza marks a change from the general to the more specific. The first person discussed is Constance, or "Con," Gore-Booth who, upon marrying a count, became Countess Markiewicz. For her role as an assistant commander in the Rising, she was imprisoned, although later released (see Yeats's "On a Political Prisoner"). Yeats had met Markiewicz and her sister Eva at their mansion, Lissadell, while she was doing charity work that the poet refers to as "ignorant good will". Apparently, she could imitate the cries of hares with her young and beautiful voice as she hunted them with her dogs (harriers). It was this voice that became shrill by politics. Lines 24-26 "This man" was Patrick Pearse, the founder of a boy's school in Dublin and the Commandant-General and President of the provisional government during the Rising. He was a member of the Irish bar and was also a poet. The winged horse is Pegasus, a symbol for poetry or the poet's inspiration. Pearse was a poet and one of the leaders executed. Lines 27-31 "This other," Thomas MacDonagh, taught English Literature at University College, Dublin, and was a poet, playwright, and critic. Yeats had met him and felt that "within [MacDonagh's] own mind this mechanical thought is crushing as with an iron roller all that is organic." MacDonagh was also executed for his leadership in the Rising. Lines 32-37 "This other man" refers to Major John MacBride, the man who had married and divorced Maud Gonne, Yeats's longtime passion who refused his requests to marry several times. The "some who are near my heart" are likely Maud and her daughter, Iseult, who Yeats had, also unsuccessfully, asked to marry. While Yeats did not like MacBride, he felt he owed him tribute for his part in the Rising. Like MacDonagh and Pearse, MacBride "resigned his part" (was executed) and no longer had to act in the "casual comedy" of Ireland described in the first stanza. Thus, political events are compared to theatrical events. Lines 38-40 Because of MacBride's martyrdom, he was changed from a lout to a hero. This is part of the meaning of "terrible beauty": that even a fool could become transformed into a thing of beauty. Lines 41-56 This stanza is another rapid edit away from specific heroes, even if unnamed, to abstract observations by way of images known as metaphors. Briefly put, this stanza says that those willing to sacrifice themselves and others to principle, ideology, or by another reading, the stone that refers to Ireland herself, are those "enchanted to a stone." They become stony because they are committed, while those around them ("the living stream") react and change with differing circumstances. Or as Yeats puts it, while stones do not change, most everything else does: moving horses suddenly veer off course; riders react to their horses (as poets react to Pegasus's inspiration); birds dive, careen, and call; and clouds and their reflections shift and mutate. The softer beings of animals, clouds, and water change; that hard thing - stone - does not. Lines 57-64 The transition into the last stanza, unlike the previous changes between stanzas, is gradual. From the description of stones as obdurate and perhaps unsympathetic things, Yeats moves on to explain the reason people become like stone: through self-sacrifice. Yeats's explanation makes it easier for readers to sympathize with the insurrectionists. In line 59, Yeats himself turns to sympathy. As if pleading to heaven, the poet asks how long people must sacrifice themselves, must make a stone of their heart, in order to gain what is just. Because the question is unanswerable, Yeats says that all we can do is remember the dead ("To murmur name upon name") as when a mother utters the name of her sleeping child to make sure he awakens and remains with her. Lines 65-69 Almost as soon as Yeats enters into his analogy between recalling the martyrs and "naming" the sleeping child, he exits with the words "not night but death," because, after all, the revolutionaries are not sleeping but dead. The poet wonders whether their deaths were needless since Britain had promised Ireland a great measure of independence as soon as World War I was over. In the meantime, Ireland felt forced to furnish the British with men and food, something that angered Irish dissidents and helped drive them to revolt. Lines 70-73 The revolutionaries dreamed of an independent Ireland, but the reality is that they are dead. Now the question is what to make of them. From the revolutionaries characterized as overly hard in stanza three, to those at the beginning of stanza four who sacrificed themselves to make a stone of their heart, the revolutionaries now become, in lines 72 and 73, those who loved too much and were confused by an "excess of love." Is this a contradiction, or can it be said that the revolutionaries turned to stone because of love? Lines 74-80 The new name in these lines is James Connolly. Under Pearse, Connolly was second in command of the Republican forces and Commandant at the General Post Office, the principal location of the Republican forces. Connolly was perhaps left to the end of the poem because Yeats did not know him well, even though they had been in demonstrations together in the 1890s. Due to their revolutionary action, the four men mentioned in the poem, and presumably the others executed who were not mentioned, will be transformed from the more or less average people they were into heroes - especially "Wherever green is worn," that is, in the Emerald Isle, Ireland. By the end of the poem, even if ignorant of the Rising, readers can venture a pretty sound guess as to what "terrible beauty" at least partially refers: martyrdom ( Full Answer )

"Twa Corbies" technically means the two ravens. They are sitting watching a dead man laying on the ground, killed in battle. They debate about whether or not to eat the remains, except a hawk, hound, and lady (probably his wife) are "guarding" the body. Ultimatetly though, the reader sees they are v…ery selfish and care very little about the man being dead and can move on quickly from the experience. The noble knight who dies in battle only gets recognized as food by the ravens. It contradicts the ballad "the three ravens," who honor the knight, and shows the selfishness of human beings.

Dust of Snow By Robert Frost The way a crow Shook down on me The dust of snow From a hemlock tree Has given my heart A change of mood And saved some part Of a day I had rued. Have you ever had just one of those days? You know what I mean. It would appear that our author, Mr. F…rost, has experienced that too. Now, what appears to be a simple and to the point poem, is actually a rather ironic ( the opposite is meant from what is written) and symbolic piece of literature. To begin with, a crow usually brings to mind a rather large, black bird, that is a scavenger, able to provoke fear. In fact, a group of crows is called, "a murder". However, in reality, there are forty different types of crows ranging in size from small to large. In addition, crows are unable to rip open the carcass of an animal as a true scavenger does. Instead, they wait until the carcass is opened by a scavenger, and only then can they eat the soft tissue inside. Are you wondering why? It seems that the crow's beak is not strong enough to break apart a carcass due to its stout shape. Furthermore, crows are not pure black in color. They are black-glossed with violet. To continue this ironic plunge, the color violet symbolizes, "a purpose". In our present day world, where stereotyping and misjudging others due to race, religion, sexual persuasion, etc. will hopefully be lessening, isn't it amazing that Robert Frost was able to use the black, fearsome, scavenger, crow to represent a wonderful purpose? It is the crow that was able to shake the dust of snow from the hemlock tree and bring about a wondrous change to the author's otherwise, gloomy, miserable day. The second evidence of irony and symbolism use is how Frost uses a hemlock tree. He could have used any type of tree he wanted to in this poem. But, the clever Mr. Frost, used the hemlock tree to further create his view of the world. A hemlock tree is known by several common names and is linked to toxicity. Let's name a few of these trees: Poison Hemlock, Irish "Devil's Porridge", Beaver Poison, and Poison Parsley. Yet, in this poem, it is the hemlock tree that holds the precious snow treasure that is pure and good bringing beauty to all. Its branches or arms opened up when touched by the crow. By using the fearsome crow and the poisonous hemlock tree to be the reason for Frost's mood to improve, he is showing us how the world should be viewed without prejudgment and stereotypes. Beauty can be found in the simple things, and heroes are sometimes not who you expect them to be. Did you ever wake up in the morning to a world covered by a blanket of snow? Nothing can be seen or felt for that moment, but pure beauty, tranquility, and peace. The dirt in the street is covered. Dead plants and animals are covered. All cars, trees, and houses are covered with this white stillness. At that moment, everything in the world is equal. You can't distinguish, one tree from another, one house from another, or one car from another. Isn't that the way we should view one another? Without prejudice, without stereotyping, without judgment? I think if you read, Dust of Snow , one more time, you will see all it represents and develop a greater appreciation of Robert Frost, who obviously, wanted a fair and equal world in which to live.

Where one feels fearless and honored, where knowledge is free, where the whole world is united, where one expresses sincere feelings, where one tries so reach perfection continuously, where new ideas are not disturbed by dead tradition and where the mind is directed to generous thought and action, l…et my country awake in such heaven of freedom. In the world our mind should be fearless and we should be respected. . Knowledge should be free there. The world should not be divided into smaller parts by the narrow conception of nationalism. The reality should be sincerely represented. We should aim to reach perfection. Our mind should be led towards selfless thought and action. In such an ideal place our country should be awakened. The poem might be trying to show the value of knowledge, courage, self-dignity, altruism, sincere, and reasonable thought. If all these qualities are found in the countrymen of a particular country, the country itself will be the heaven. . The poem has run away from the harsh reality and tried to establish an imaginary heaven. Will it be possible for us to create such an ideal place here on earth? How can we fight into remove evils if we run away from everyday life? Is such an ideal desire alone enough to face the reality? The poem has described how we should live fearlessly and proudly. It has also pointed out the cause of war between nations -- the artificial borderline. I came to know how dead habit hinders progress -the check of the reason. ( Full Answer )

I think that that the lines "the roses are red and white and vilets and lily cups" are a throwback to the poem we all know "roses are red and violets are blue" which is overused and shows that his meaning of life as a child was still premature to cliches, and life. He never really understood. For me… I dont see his brother dead, but still alive, he just cuts off because Hood wanted to show that the tree is still living despite all the problems of growing up. It shows that growing up is very much different from getting older, and Hood states that in his last few lines, "it was childish ignorance" shows that he has grown older, but still retains all the childish idealism in hoping to become a boy again.

The narrator tells his reader about his life's journey. The ups and downs in life. The trials and the tribulations. The triumphs and the victories, but suddenly towards the end of the journey, he found the path completely closed and cannot proceed any further.

But he finds that the will of God knows no end in him. And when old words die out on the tongue, new melodies; a sequence of single notes that is musically satisfying: the principal part in harmonized music; break forth from the heart; and where the old tracks are lost, new country is revealed with its wonders. Every man who chooses to tread on the path of righteousness in life in his own ways and understanding will discover to himself that each step that he takes is pre-determined by a divine power beyond his own understanding. So even if at some point of his life he finds that there is a powerful obstacle that closes his path, he needs not fear for God always provide an alternate way out. ( Full Answer )
Patriotism is written by poet Sir Walter Scott who has described the nature of unpatriotic person who only loves his money and power. So his death is doubly death; physical death and death of his soul. This is because he is unpatriotic to his native land where he is born an that country only gave hi…m that much power and wisdom but he is not utilizing it properly. He is wandering in foreign strand and collecting the boundless money. But according to the poem it is worthless. No one will sing for him if he comes in a higher post and also because he does not have any felling of patriotism. He will be happy because of his post and hard work but no one else will. He is a wretch; a miserable person concentrated all in himself. He always looks towards himself but no one else. According to the poem, he is like a dog who does not have any feeling of love towards his motherland and any other than himself. So his soul is dead. He is living but his heart is not buried in his body. When he returns home, his money and power lures him and he strives to return to the same place for his power and riches. When he dies, he will go to the useless dust from where he was born and upon his death, no one will sing for him, no one will honour him. And from this poem we can get a moral that we have to die for the same country, our motherland that gave us our life. We should really have respect and love to our native country no matter what the costs may be. Then only will our soul die in peace and in honour. We will be sung upon our death and will always be remembered. ( Full Answer )

My thoughts in William Blake\'s position.- Fair haired angel(Venus) angel of the evening(evening star), While the sun is starting to rest on the mountains, Rekindle the shining torch of love and wear your Radiant Crown, and bless our(other people and himself) resting bed(earth)! Smile on the ones w…e love may it be relatives or lovers, And while you draw the blue curtain(the blueish sky), scatter your silver dew(blessing in the form of a liquid in this case)on almost every flower that closes its eyes(petals of flower) in order to obtain calm and sleep. Command the west wind* to calm down and not destroy the floral beauty of the forest. Command silence and order in the forest through your beautiful and glimmering(shining) eyes. Paint the curtain(sky) with silver(stars and moon) so that their light reaches us and protects us. I know you will withdraw(leave) soon and when you do the dangers of the night(dangerous beasts, wild animals, thieves and robbers) will thrive. The wolf will howl in pleasure and the lion will pensively stare at a flock of sheep planning to attack... I pray you(Venus), let the sprinkled dew(blessing) cover the flocks of sheep(fleece is the wool of sheep) and protect them through it. ( Full Answer )
