  • Love And Desire In Sir Thomas Wyatt's Whoso List To Hunt

    A combination of Petrarch and English sonnet conventions construct love and desire in Sir Thomas Wyatt 's “Whoso List to Hunt”. However, from Petrarch 's perspective, love is transcendent and idealizes the beloved. The poet places his love on a pedestal. Desire, on the other hand, focuses on longing and frustration. The poet 's love is unwanted and injustice (Riddell). In this essay I will examine Petrarchan conventions such as the conceit, as well as illicit, thwarted, and unrequited love, and how they portray passionate pursuits. I will also explore Wyatt 's use of both Petrarchan and English sonnet structures and conventions such as conceit, and illicit, thwarted, and unrequited love. I will argue that Wyatt 's deliberate use of both…

    posed a threat to Tudor governance but it was not aimed at deposing Mary and thus posed Mary’s hold on the throne less of a threat.

    There are only a few classic American directors that have the distinction to be called one of the greatest of all time, and John Ford is in that esteem category. His talent of perfectly illustrating on film the American Frontier (1800s to early 1900s) is not just entertaining, exciting, and romanticized, but his films are laced with folklore, cultural relevance, and history that make him a one-of-a-kind director in the western genre.

  • Summary Of John Ford's Film 'Stagecoach'

    was represented well. The only ever present theme throughout the film was Western. Everything else was lackluster, in my opinion they didn’t give enough background on the passengers in the stagecoach for this to be justified with a drama genre theme.
