The poem May be about a mourner for his beloved Lenore being suddenly visited by “The Raven,” and he is trying to figure out what the commotion is all about at his window while attempting to get some probably nostalgic sleep as he pines for Lenore.
I’ve seen a lot of movies with this theme, including one starring (the wonderful) Michelle Pfeiffer, in which she was transformed into a bird of prey when her lover was a man, and back into a woman when her lover was transformed into a wolf or something. The plot of the film revolved around how they were able to “break the curse” and get all of sweetie pie together.

Emma Lazarus, a Jewish American poet, wrote “The New Colossus,” an Italian sonnet. Lazarus was a dedicated immigration activist who became particularly concerned about the plight of Russian Jewish refugees. The poem was written in 1883 to help raise money for the building of the pedestal for the Statue of Liberty, but it was not placed on the pedestal until 1903. The poem compares the Statue of Liberty to the Colossus of Rhodes from Greek mythology, portraying the “new colossus” as a patroness of refugees rather than a sign of military might. The statue’s position, as well as the poem’s optimistic, unironic tone, present an idealistic image of America’s role as a global welcomer and defender of immigrants.

Her mild eyes order from her beacon-hand7Glows world-wide welcome. 8The twin cities are framed by an air-bridged harbor. 9 “Keep your storied pomp, ancient lands!” she exclaims silently. “Give me your weary, your poor,11your huddled masses yearning for freedom,12the wretched refuse of your teeming sea. 13Send these homeless tempest-tost to me, 14I raise my lamp beside the golden door!”
Analysis of ‘between a rock and a hard place’ by aron
While an elegy is typically written in a reverent tone, Fitzgerald uses sharp, sardonic wit to undercut the sense of mourning in Gatsby. Nick’s account of Gatsby’s parties and Long Island culture is peppered with subtle satirical observations. “Instead of rambling, this faction had maintained a dignified homogeneity, and assumed the position of serving the country’s staid nobility—East Egg condescending to West Egg, and wary of its spectroscopic gayety.” Nick’s high level of education is shown by the ornate terms “homogeneity” and “spectroscopic,” which mean that the novel is written for a highly educated audience. Fitzgerald imbues the passage with a sense of elitism by portraying the relationship between East and West Egg as “condescending” and “on guard.” Nick’s refined demeanor contrasts with the guests’ behaviour, which becomes gradually less refined as the party progresses and the Champagne flows. The last guests are nearly incoherent by the end of the evening – “wonder’ff tell me where there’s a gas’line station?” – their inelegant speech contrasted with Nick’s elegant overview of the group.
