Flaubert; Baudelaire; Rimbaud; Tagore; Yeats

1. There is sort of a reoccurring theme to these questions about the reading our class is going over and basically what I am recognizing is that these stories have plenty of morals to them. Felicite always had good intentions when going about her life. She was always a good person and always had faith towards God. Although she does not really appear to be a saint, she always tried to be a very warm person with good intentions. Compared to Madame Aubain, they both had to deal with deaths of people very close to them. Madame Aubain’s husband died and she had to deal with that. They are different because Felicite was a more loved filled person all around as for Madam Aubain’s intentions may not have been that nice in order to provide for her children.

2. In the poems that I’ve  read about women, she is always described as a very amazing and beautiful human being with such an elegance to her and then something bad after that or along with it. He also describes them in a way to be very sexy and more as an object in some eyes. So, I guess in a way it is contradicting. With men, he describes them as weak in the mind with only intentions to gain satisfaction.

3.  Chidam and Chandara and Rama and Sita are very different from each other. Rama and Sita have a very loving and dedicated relationship to where they want to do anything they can for each other to keep one another happy. Chidam and Chandara have almost the exact opposite of a relationship from Rama and Sita. They are constantly fighting with each other and they are both very conniving. Selfishness is a very good word to use when describing why the relationship is how it is.

4. I chose the poem, “The Rose Tree.”  In this poem, which is about a tree who grows.  Joy makes the tree shake its leaves. Yeats is telling his beloved not to look into the mirror, or only for a little while, because a dangerous image grows there. All things turn to barrenness and mirrors hold the image out of tiredness. In those frightening places the ravens of unresting thought fly, and make one’s eyes unkind.

    Justin, your analyzation of the poem in question four is kind of how I saw it too. Interesting poem and cool to see other students with the same mind frame.
