The Greek Song Culture with Reference to Odyssey

- The Greek Song Culture with Reference to Odyssey The Homeric epic, Odyssey, begins with the invocation of the muse. The muses are the goddesses of total recall.

The Beatles Song Blackbird and the Frankenstein Creature

- The Beatles composed and sang many beautiful and timeless songs during their musical career. One song, however, captures the essence of Victor Frankenstein’s creation. Mary Shelley wrote Frankenstein in 1818. The Beatles wrote a song off their The White Album entitled Blackbird in 1968. Generations apart from each other, these two artistic masterpieces are more similar than one may deem. Although the era during which Blackbird came out most likely suggests it was written for the African American race to associate with, it very much correlates to Shelley’s being in Frankenstein....   [tags: Essay on The Beatles]

Love Song By William Carlos Williams

- When reading the title, we often associate a love song as something jaunty, pleasureable, and celebrating, or its other extreme, regretting, nostalgic, and full of pity for the singer’s troubles in love. With Williams the singer, the main idea revolves around the concept of an incomplete union in first person point of view, which makes the reading more personal as the reader is using I instead you or he. From this concept stem the ideas that this poem is about hopelessness or happiness, communal sex or masturbation....   [tags: Poetry]
