Essay Comparing Two Poems - 1123 Words

H/W Monday, 27 September 2010 Compare the similarities and differences between two Ballads, Charlotte Dymond and John Lomas. Charlotte Dymond and John Lomas, are two poems which share several techniques. They also, however are different in many ways. This essay will explore their similarities and their differences and explain reasons why the two ballads are different or similar. For example, both poems have a theme of murder. Ballads normally have a sad or shocking story, so this is very common. In both poems the murderer is always hanged after murdering another person. In Charlotte Dymond, the murderer is her lover. In John Lomas, the murderer is John Lomas. The murder controls the ballads and there is no point in the ballads†¦show more content†¦A difference between the two poems is that Charlotte Dymond uses metaphors for example; her cheeks were made of honey and; her throat was made of flame. Whereas in John Lomas there are no metaphors in the whole ballad. This may be because the ballad only has fourteen stanzas and the poet could not fit any metaphors in or it could be because, he chose not to put any metaphors in the poem. A metaphor is when you say something is something for example ‘my dog is a great big ball of fluff’ in this I am saying that my dog is actually a great ball of fluff not as or like when you use a simile but he is a ‘great big ball of fluff’ this is very direct and as though the writer is actually talking to you as a reader if the writer is talking in third person like in Charlotte Dymond so the writer may not want to write something so direct. Whereas in John Lomas the writer is talking about when he killed the victim and so he might want to be direct when he is talking to the reader. Another difference between the two poems is that in Charlotte Dymond the poet writes in third person as in talking about something happening in this case the murder of Charlotte Dymond. This means that the murder could be changed to fit the criteria of what the murderers friend or the victims friend. This means that the poem could have been changed to fit what the writer wanted for example the writer might be the murderer’s friend, so he might wantShow MoreRelated Comparing Two Poems about Prejudice Essay579 Words   |  3 PagesComparing Two Poems about Prejudice The poems Telephone Conversation, by Wole Soyinka and You Will Be Hearing From Us Shortly, by U A Fanthorpe are both about prejudice.

It’s safe to say that â€Å"Toads† and â€Å"Toads Revisited†, both by Philip Larkin, have two very different viewpoints to work. Although written by the same poet, I feel they discuss the statement about ‘duty’ interestingly; both relay their points in a number of clever ways. Looking at â€Å"Toads†, in the perspective of the poet, we start to see that there is certain imagery in the poem that tells us a lot aboutRead MoreEssay about Emily Dickinsons Use of Humor and Irony1306 Words   |  6 Pageshumor and irony in many of her poems.

Marriage Is A Sacred Action, And The Bondage Between...

Marriage is a sacred action, and the bondage between individuals is powerful. Marriage is one of the greatest moments in ones’ lifetime. Throughout different cultures marriage has a different meaning. In some groups, marriage and your spouse is not your decision and in others you can have multiple spouses. There are several different forms of marriage and different cultures practice those marriages in different ways. Marriage brings about happiness but in some cases it can bring grief and discipline. Marriage is a bond between individuals and no matter the circumstances, whether it’s for power or love, any form of marriage should be recognized. The definition of endogamy is a â€Å"marriage within a particular group or category of individuals† (Cultural Anthropology, 204). Cultures who practice this type of marriage require that the marriage be within his or her social group, or ethnicity. For instance, certain areas of India, especially the Hindu community, prac tice endogamy. Marriages outside of their social group are forbidden and extreme consequences, from disowning to death, will be given. â€Å"[Endogamy] is a common practice among displanted cultures attempting to make roots in new countries as it encourages group solidarity and ensures greater control over group resources. It helps minorities to survive over a long time in societies with other practices and beliefs† (New World Encyclopedia).

My Leadership Initiative Develop A New, Simpler And...

Part A The focus of my leadership initiative is to develop a new, simpler and leaner approach (Fillingham, 2008) to the assessment process, ensuring safe and reliable delivery of right care, in the right place and at the right time, to the patients. Recently we implemented monthly practice governance meetings in our team to regularly reflect on areas of improvement and discuss changes that would improve patient care. I have been using the practice governance meetings to present results from our recent audit demonstrating increased treatment-waiting times, share real stories highlighting the gap between the current and desired state of the service and encourage engagement of frontline staff in delivering this initiative. Staff was given opportunity to perform a Cause and Effect Analysis (figure1) and map patient journey (figure2) to identify activities that add value (Bennington, 2011) and reduce waste. I was hoping to use these meetings to frame and embed a strategy of implementing t he improvement initiative and whilst I have been successful in developing a framework of the new leaner assessment process, the process has suffered from poor staff engagement and conflicts with trusts’ agenda of standardising the delivery of care. During these practice governance meetings, the team was unable to come up with any suggestions to improve the assessment process and other agendas related to the new community service review policies were given greater priority.

Legalization of Marijuana Argumentative Essay Example For Students

Legalization of Marijuana Argumentative Essay Marijuana also known as cannabis sativa has been falsely criticized since the beginning of the century. The fact is that the legalization of marijuana can have positive effects. Marijuana has been proven to be less likely to create crime, it can be used as a medicine, and isnt any more harmful than most other legal substances on the market. Its hard to understand why it is illegal. Legalizing marijuana would reduce the numbers in our prisons, help the countrys Ill citizens, and make money for the government by taxing the plant. There is no feasible way to completely abolish drug use in the United States. As with Prohibition of Alcohol in the earlier part of this century, the fight against drugs has backfired. The United States is spending billions of dollars a year to fight a war, which over the last 60 years, has shown that it cannot be won. So lets use a little reverse psychology on the subject. What would happen if marijuana or other illegal drugs were legalized (Rosenthal, 133)? First, the billions of dollars that the government is spending trying to abolish illegal drugs would be put to better use and the government would be able to tax the new drugs just as they do alcohol and tobacco. These monies could then be spent to provide better education on the affects of drugs and drug abuse, better healthcare, and research on medical uses of drugs such as marijuana. Also, the government would be able to regulate the quality of products on the market, resulting in fewer deaths caused by overdosing and by junk drugs (Grinspoon, Lester, 167). Second, with government regulation, including sale and distribution, the big drug dealers would no longer be in control. The drugs would be made affordable or free to those who are addicted, thus decreasing crimes such as petty theft. The streets would be much safer to walk on, because the crack dealer on the corner would no longer be pushing drugs to young children. Since the drug dealers would no longer have areas of distribution (turf), there would be a decline in gang war crimes such as murder and accidental shootings(Matthews, Patrick, 205). Third, if legalized, hemp and marijuana crops could take the place of part, or all, of the small farmers regular crops. They are both good rotational crops that need little tending, and it has been shown that they replace nutrients back into the soil that are lost in the growth of normal crops such as wheat and corn. This would bring in additional revenue to the farmers, keeping them in business, and provide even more tax revenue to the government (Rosenthal, Ed, 97). Also, a new retail market would emerge since hemp can be manufactured into clothing, paper products, oils, and fuels, and marijuana has medicinal purposes. It is often prescribed to AIDS, cancer and glaucoma patients. If the plant were legal, people wouldnt have to sneak behind the governments back just to smoke it. If it relieves their pain, why cant people take advantage of it? How can the government hold this plant back based on false research and propaganda? ? Legalizing this plant would free this medicine. That eff ect can greatly help society. Glaucoma patients rely heavily on marijuana as it eases their pain and helps blood flow to the eyes. Marijuana is one of the better medicines recommended to Glaucoma patients. If it has been proven to be effective, why isnt it fully available to the people?As Adam Smith said, the market is regulated by an invisible hand this statement is as true with an illegal market product as with a legal market product (Rosenthal, Ed, 138). As was seen with the Prohibition, just because it was illegal to drink doesnt mean that it didnt happen. The black market for alcohol in the 1920s was just as big as the black market for drugs is now. Theres a saying We always want what we cant have; when something is prohibited more people flock to it because it is taboo (Zimmer, Lynn, 34). Once the Prohibition was over alcohol consumption was down and crime went down. If all it took was the legalization of alcohol, then why wouldnt the legalization of drugs do the same thing? A s outlined above if drugs are legalized and regulated by the government there are more benefits than pitfalls. Marijuana has been proven to be less likely to create crime, in some cases can be used as a medicine, and its legalization can be used to tax the people. The effects of its legalization would help society. No more sneaking behind the governments back to smoke this plant. No more locking up innocent, good, hard-working people. Everyone should be able to live in peace. Peace too many would be decriminalizing this plant. Hopefully well all see the day when marijuana is legalized.

First Person Narration in Jean Rhys essays

First Person Narration in Jean Rhys essays First Person Narration in Jean Rhys Good Morning, Midnight The dominant figure in Good Morning Midnight is Sasha Jasnen and all action is filtered through her perception. Her voice is the only one heard while the other characters seem to serve just as bit players filling out the scenes of her lifes routines (Nebeker 85). Concentrating on Sashas consciousness, Jean Rhys in fact encourages the readers not to focus on the plot itself but rather in the way Sasha conceives what happens both around and inside her. The authors goal is not to simply narrate a story but to show the rendered perceptions of an isolated and marginalized woman who wages her own battles (Emery 157). In order to achieve that, Rhys opts to use first person narration. This technique turns out to be very effective not only because it reveals the heroines first person awareness of herself and the world she inhibits (Nebeker 86), but also as it helps us understand the behavior of a character as complex as Sasha is. Indeed, comprehending the heroines behavior is not easy as Sasha is an extraordinary character and to a certain extent emotionally unbalanced. What makes it even more difficult to explain her conduct is the fact that there is great discrepancy between her thoughts and her final actions. This is amply demonstrated when she turns the gigolo away although she wants him to stay and make love to her: He has moved so quickly that I havent had time to put my arms around him, or to say Stay, to say Dont do this, dont leave me like this, dont (153-4). To make matters worse, Sasha not only fails to express her real feelings but often lies about them: Yes, I am sad, sad as a circus lioness [...] Then I say: But I am not sad. Why should you think Im sad? (39). To join Sasha in her spirit...

Identification of the Probable Causes of ER Conflict Term Paper

Identification of the Probable Causes of ER Conflict - Term Paper Example Since the company has been operating for 15 years, it means the company has grown wide in the 15 years span. Much growth comes from opportunities to discover creative solutions to conflicts in organizations (Hannaway, 2003). Conflicts in organizations could come up for different reasons. However, conflict provides additional ways of thinking about their sources and opens up the possibility of improving a relationship. Some of the main causes of conflict in the organization include organizational change. In most organizations, there is tension between opposing forces for stability or to maintain the status quo and change. If the management of the organization wants to shift, more health care costs onto workers tension may arise. If the organization has to attain much stability, it may lose its competitive position in the market (Farnhan, 2002). With too much change, the mission blurs and the employees develop anxiety, which in turn causes employee relations conflict. The conflict coul d also be caused by ineffective communication. It is a significant cause of conflict, especially personal conflict. It occurs if messages do not pass through the required message filters. It is often evident in a work setting where different people work closely together. It is always a challenge to achieve an effective two-way communication; thus, always triggering conflict. Values and culture clashes are also a vital source of conflict that is evident in many organizations. These conflicts arise from the presence of different value priorities amongst the employees (Hannaway, 2003). Today’s diverse workforce reflects a kaleidoscope of cultures each with its own unique qualities. The individual’s bearers of these different cultural traditions could easily come into conflict with one another. Generational influences are the most powerful forces that shape values in the modern workforce.
