Robert Browning When the Victorian period comes into someone’s mind, they may think the Industrial Revolution. This period was a specific time of change, many people who lived during this period would agree. The Victorian period lasted during Queen Victoria’s reign, which is how the name was established. Queen Victoria started as Queen in 1837 which is when the beginning of the period was. The period ended in 1901, which was the death of the Queen. Other then the Industrial revolution, there were many other events that happened in the 64 years of this era like a depression, “The Hungry Forties”, The Potato Famine, and most important very poor working conditions. One poet that really stood out during all of these tragic events was a man named Robert Browning. Robert Browning wrote many different works, but two works that are common but different are “Prospice” and “My Last Duchess” which both come with common themes but different approaches to those themes. Robert Browning was born on May 7th, 1812 in Camberwell, London to a middleclass family. When Browning was a very young child he decided that he wanted to be a poet. His love for poetry came from his father, also a Robert Browning. His parents were completely supportive with his decision to become a poet. His father specifically educated Browning at home. It is said that the reason of his “wide range of unusual information the mature poet brought to his work” (Poetry Foundation) is because of his father homeschooling him. They would cover his financial needs and any resources he needed to achieve his dream as a poet. Another part of Browning’s life to be a poet was that his father built a library in their house with over 10 thousand volumes in it (poetry foundation). One of his works, “The Pied Piper” reflects the Victorian Period by its charm and its…...

Robert Redford

...Emotional Appeal and Religious Symbolism in American Film Director/Actor, Robert Redford It can be noted that in the majority of all the films directed by Robert Redford, there is a strong resemblance between the films and the characters he creates. Redford is strongly opinionated on politics and ethical rights. Political and religious symbolism can be found in almost all of his films. One of the most notable hallmarks of Robert Redford’s work, A River Runs Through It, is a profound example of the raw emotion Redford instills within his character that resonates so well with a wide range of audiences. Within the films he directs, Robert Redford’s characters seem to harbor emotions that bleed through the screen and into the viewer’s home because—much like the filmmaker himself—Redford’s films truly wear their heart on their sleeves. The films themselves seem to creep into the audience’s minds, leaving viewers longing for more or to simply be there in that moment feeling just like the characters Redford creates on screen. Born August 18, 1936, in Santa Monica, California, Robert Redford has proved to be one of the greats in American filmmaking; starring in classics such as The Sting and Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. Robert Redford is also notably known for helping kick-start The Sundance Film Festival in 1978, which has since evolved into one of the film industry's most prominent affairs. However, before experiencing success within the American filmmaking community,......

Robert Frost

...Robert Frost: Poetical Analyzed Robert Lee Frost was a poet who wrote most of his poetry based on his past. After college, Frost experienced many tragic events throughout his life. He lived a depressing and miserable life. Unfortunately, Frost had to experience the death of four of his children and his wife, although he still had two children alive with him. Frost had so much loneliness in his life that it ultimately led to his death (Sullivan).

My Last Duchess Robert Browning

...My Last Duchess Robert Browning was in his 50s before he achieved universal popularity but the lean years prior to his recognition allowed the poet to experiment with genre, form and language. As well as poetry, Browning had a great love of theatre and one of his early ambitions was as a playwright but after failing to find success on the stage, he accepted that he lacked the skill to engage audiences for several hours. However, his apprenticeship was not wasted for Browning, honing his skills by endlessly editing scripts, took the dramatic monologue (a new genre of poetry invented by Tennyson) and perfected it. His preoccupation with individual introspection that was a disaster in theatre, once transferred to poetry, added richness and depth. And by employing dramatic techniques learned in the theatre, he created complete poems that could be viewed as vignettes of a larger text. In other words, he was able to successfully write shorter pieces but in a new dramatic fashion. My Last Duchess is not only an example of a dramatic monologue, it is also one of Browning’s most famous and, generally regarded as, his best work. Published in 1842, the poem is the influence of a month-long trip to Italy, a country where he ultimately spent a large part of his life, and can be considered one of his ‘Italian’ poems. The back story is usually considered to be that of the last of the Este line, the fifth Duke of Ferrara, Alfonso II, a Renaissance aristocrat who is famous for......

Robert Latimer

...Euthanasia and the Canadian LAW: Robert Latimer Robert Latimer, a farmer working in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan killed his 12 year old daughter Tracy in 1983. Latimer admitted he loved his daughter and killed her to the police. He said he couldn’t bear to watch Tracy suffer from a severe form of cerebral palsy. Thus causing Latimer to kill his daughter and “free her from misery”. Latimer was charged of first-degree murder and a year later convicted of second-degree murder. This case arose many legal questions including: * Should courts abide by the book or the situation of the accused? * Would a decision favorable to Latimer legalize euthanasia? * Would it put the disabled in danger? The decision of this trial would determine the fate of the disabled. Any leniency towards Latimer would suggest the disabled are regarded as second-class citizens. Other laws such as abortion were referred to the deliberation of this case. The case soon became complex as the idea of ‘compassionate homicide’ vs. ‘cold-blooded murder’ proceeded. After that idea, Latimer was later given a constitutional exception in 2008 due the case being labeled as ‘compassionate homicide’ and the fact that the accused poses no threat in society. Plus, Latimer had killed his daughter for altruistic reasons. Before Latimer’s constitutional exception, it was taken in consideration that Tracy was a relatively a merry child and her rights had been violated by her father. Although, Tracy’s......

...guts and the followers to effect the change. 2) What was Browning’s predicament at White Cap? Peter Browning is endowed with most of the qualities that one need to become a change agent. However, there are some impediments at White Cap that stand in his way for implementing his change agenda. He is facing the predicament at White Cap: Peter Browning is in a precarious situation. He has the task to take necessary action to revitalize and preserve White Cap’s profitability in the capping business considering the changing environment and the increasing competition. White Cap is already a successful division, but now he must improve upon not only an already successful division but the best of the nine divisions of the company - this creates a different set of challenges considering where he is coming from. He had more flexibility in implementing his vision to turn a failing Bondware Division into a succeeding one than he would in an already successful White Cap Division. It would be difficult for White Cap division to realize that change is necessary firstly because it is the most successful division and secondly because this change is dictated from external – Continental executives or corporate level. The image of Bob White, though he is retired, he is still very much alive in the hearts and minds of White Cap employees, he still live in the Chicago area, Browning in uncertain about the outcome because he has to change those values and style that White......

How Does Robert Browning and Shakespeare Present Jealousy in the Laboratory and Othello

...English essay: How does Browning and Shakespeare present jealousy in the poem 'the laboratory' and 'Othello' Jealousy is described as someone who is showing envy usually of someone because of their achievements or advantages, jealousy plays a major role in both Othello and the laboratory. throughout the both of them jealousy is used for destructive purposes only. as an audience we are led to feel that both jealousies are motivated not by hatred but by the passion for one another, crazy as that may seem. Shakespeare uses jealousy as a central theme throughout the play, without this aggressive and destructive emotion, there would be no solid plot. Shakespeare often refers to jealousy as a devouring emotion "Beware, my lord of jealousy! it is the green eyed monster which doth mock, the meat it feeds on" this fits extremely well with Iago's description of Othello being "beaten up with passion". This suggests exactly how strong Othello's monumental jealousy really is, once Othello becomes aware that his wife is unfaithful, Iago continues to feed his jealousy which causes Othello to indeed behave like a monster. however, its dramatic irony that Iago says this to Othello. the audience knows that Iago is perhaps the one "eaten up" with jealousy and Othello is none the wiser he holds; the form of personal and professional jealousy. The jealousy that is portrayed in 'Othello' is very similar to the one portrayed in Browning's poem The Laboratory, it explores the theme of......

How Does Browning Tell the Story in the Laboratory

...How does Browning tell the story in the Laboratory Robert Brownings, The Laboratory tells the story of a woman entering the “devil’s smithy” in order to create a poison, in which would kill the woman because she was seeing a man. The Laboratory is told in first person narrative so immediately it makes the poem very imitate with the reader and so we feel like the woman is speaking to the reader about her problems and how she is going to kill the woman. The quote “he is with her” shows how she doesn't like how the man has gone for the woman but also the tone of this is very spiteful when she says this and shows how the woman is arrogant. As the woman speaks she uses imperatives like “grind” and “pound” the use of these violent imperatives show her edging on and how she is reinforcing her pleasure showing how she is enjoying herself with what she is about to do. The quote “I am no it haste” also shows how she is enjoying the pleasure of the poison. The woman can also be viewed as scornful shown in the line "he is sure to remember her dying face", suggesting she wants a seemingly innocent woman to die ugly, simply because she spoke to a man she should not have by the woman. Browning also uses the use of exclamttives to show the characters journey through the poem, “a filigree basket!”, this exclamative shows how the woman is getting more excited about the poison and it shows the delight in which she enjoys. Browning also uses context in his he telling of the story in...

Robert Browning

...Robert Browning Robert Browning was born on May 7, 1812, in Camberwell, England. His mother was an accomplished pianist and a devout evangelical Christian. His father, who worked as a bank clerk, was also an artist, scholar, antiquarian, and collector of books and pictures. His rare book collection of more than 6,000 volumes included works in Greek, Hebrew, Latin, French, Italian, and Spanish. Much of Browning's education came from his well-read father. It is believed that he was already proficient at reading and writing by the age of five. A bright and anxious student, Browning learned Latin, Greek, and French by the time he was fourteen. From fourteen to sixteen he was educated at home, attended to by various tutors in music, drawing, dancing, and horsemanship. At the age of twelve he wrote a volume of Byronic verse entitled Incondita, which his parents attempted, unsuccessfully, to have published. In 1825, a cousin gave Browning a collection of Shelley's poetry; Browning was so taken with the book that he asked for the rest of Shelley's works for his thirteenth birthday, and declared himself a vegetarian and an atheist in emulation of the poet. Despite this early passion, he apparently wrote no poems between the ages of thirteen and twenty. In 1828, Browning enrolled at the University of London, but he soon left, anxious to read and learn at his own pace. The random nature of his education later surfaced in his writing, leading to criticism of his poems' obscurities. In......

Robert Frost

...Robert Frost’s in “The Path Not Taken,” Eudora Welty’s “A Worn Path,” and Jean Rhys’s “I Used to Live Here Once, ” focus on a common theme that is “Journey.” Although these three works of literature have a similar theme, each has a different point of view. Each of these show different paths and journey’s in which life may change. Although they are different, all three literatures have a common denominator. Each of these show the reader that regardless of which path in life a person chooses to take, life will always bring hurdles, and unexpected events along the way. Each of the three literatures offers different symbolism, characters, and historical context, although the theme of the three literatures is the same. Different people symbolize the definition of journey differently. While some people perceive a journey as a form of distance that they travel, many people forget that a journey may be a measurement or a milestone of progress in the making, and advancement in completing goals. As many people focus on the journey of the destination, they forget to recognize the accomplishments they are making along the way. The elation and excitement of an unpredictable expedition allow people to learn positive and negative things of different people one may meet while travelling and exploring different places that changes their though process, perceptions and ideas which later which certainly change a person......
