Death of a Salesman - Willy

The differences between eighteenth-century literature and

romantic poems, with respect to history is constituted here. This is

seen through the influential works of John Keats and Alexander Pope.

These works are acknowledged as, "The Rape of Lock" and "The Eve of

St. Agnes." Alexander Pope takes his readers on a hatred filled epic.

A robust piece of literature and love induced psychoses in, "The Rape

of Lock." On the other hand, "The Eve of St. Agnes" told a tale of

life, love, death, and eternal fate in heaven. These two brilliant

writers have given two magnificent poems. Pope exhibits many

characteristics of a narcissistic human being. His independence in

life shows through his writings in fiction. Which inevitably portray

his deeper feelings of life. Popes' efforts here are of outezding

quality. However, his poem did fail to convince Arabella to r?sum?

her engagement to Lord Petre. Most of Pope's efforts here were

written with time. Now, Keats has romantically serenaded his reader

with descriptive lust and desire, which can be compared with popes'

efforts by the difference in eighteenth century literature and

romantic poems, their descriptive natures and ideas they portray to

the reader through their writing.

Pope has written an eighteenth-century poem which he calls,

"An Hero-Comical Poem." This poem has exalted an over all sense of

worthlessness for common rules. The mentioning of Achilles and the

ever-popular Aeneas, are symbols of Pope's Gothic style. Pope speaks

(almost) G-D like throughout, "The Rape of Lock." Contrary to Keats,

who is more down-to-earth with his sense of realism in his writings.

In the beginning of Keats romantic premise to life in St. Agnes, all

is cold. The opening sequence brings a sense of realism to this

bitter cold scene. Cold owls, rabbit's, and numb fingers on a holy,

"Beads man." The Beads man symbolizes the sense of age and spirit.

Much of this poem is a test of Keats inner soul or spirit. He has

lead himself to St. Agnes for his own personal account of life in a

time long gone. Keats' romantic style has brought visionary raw

emotion to the aching hearts of all his readers. Then, both poems go

separate ways in their tales of body and spirit.

Taking account of all differences in these two works, has

brought out a sense of unknown extasy. Pope displays morality with

his own twists on fate and man kind's inability to rationalize right

decision making in life. He complicates this with, "Moral

superiority" and his visions of old styles blended with his attitude

for recognition. Pope has indulged the reader in consistent religious

order, and awkward justice for mankind. However, when viewing Keats

poem ezza by ezza, much is revealed. Keats' tale starts as a

direct eagerness for future considerations. His image of love and old

age creates a stifled knot in the stomach of the reader. Enthusiastic

resiezce is overcome by Keats smooth flow, and harmonizing beauty in

heaven. Angels and death are brought together like osmosis. His

ability to start off in a cold bitter atmosphere of regret, and then

sway the reader's emotion to a peaceful loving atmosphere is in itself

astonishing. Desire brings Keats to the heightened point of emotional

gratification within, "The Eve of St. Agnes." St. Agnes is such a

peaceful age-old memory for Keats. He presents strength when pain is

being inflicted. His early images of purgatory, show Keats in a bind

of human emotion and regret for past sins. However, Pope does this

as well throughout, "The Rape of Lock." Although, Pope is less

likely to find a happy medium in his tale of tolerance. He does

manage to relinquish all his desires for the sake of his own inner

strength. This strength is portrayed more intensely through his soul.

Memories are key to the anguish of the poem. In all of Keats

mediocre issues come love and honor. The entire tenth ezza is

caused by the emotions involved with love. However, this must leave

some readers at a loss. Keats doesn't seem to really care whether

anybody underezds him. Keats only concern is to repent and achieve

harmony in life with his body and soul. Each of these two poets has

signified their lack of realism with a subeztial concern for age-old

myth, and undeniable love. The portrayal
