Running head: DISCUSSIONS 1 1.1: Psalm 1:3 A reflection of the above bible verse is that there is only a single tree and only found in Jordan Valley, but the tree itself is very much beautiful to be passed over entirely; the oleander with its dark green leaves and bright blossoms, gives a feature of the ridiculous garden to any spot where it is growing. In the scriptures, it is rarely if ever referred to but it could be the tree planted by the water streams “whose leaf cannot wither” and which forth brings his fruit in due season (Creach, 1999). In His season, admirable and golden word by which is affirmed the liberty of Christian uprightness. The ungodly have their stated times, stated days, certain places and certain works; to which they so closely stick, and that if their neighbors are perishing with hunger, from them, they cannot be torn (Creach, 1999). However, this man who is blessed, free at all times for every work in all places will serve you each time an opportunity is given to him. He is neither a barbarian, nor a Greek, nor a Gentile, nor a Jew nor of any type of a person. He will so often serve his fruit in his period as either man or God requires his work. And therefore, his times/season and fruits have no name. Creach, Jerome FD. "Like a tree planted by the temple stream: The portrait of the righteous in Psalm 1: 3." The Catholic Biblical Quarterly 61.1 (1999): 34-46. 1. 2: John Donne’s Sonnet DISCUSSIONS 2 The literary device that is used in the verse is a metaphor. According to dadrus, a metaphor refers to a device which a vividly figurative concrete term is taken out from its normal context then being compared to another literal concrete term. For instance, the verse uses the word “like” to compare a growing tree by a watercourse and a righteous man. .“A man who is righteous is like a growing tree by a watercourse…” John Donne’s sonnet is an Italian sonnet. This is so because it has a rhyme scheme of abbaabbacdcdee which clearly shows that it fits in an Italian sonnet (Risanen, 1975). Looking clearly into its lines, the transition from octave to its sestet coincides with a ‘turn’. The problem the Donne is trying to preventing at the first eight lines in his poem is that he is preventing it to actually coincide with Volta (turn) in the mood or argument of the poem. The solution that Donne suggested for the problem of the octave is that he used the word “but” to compare between the octave and sestet in the poem. He began the sestet with the word “but.” An example of a paradox is in the first four lines is describing God as an attacker who is relentlessly “battering” the heart of Donne, and this is extended in lines 5-8 into the metaphor of God as an army attacking and Donne as a city which has been captured by someone. Lines 9-12 expresses the more striking comparison that Donne is “betrothed” to the enemy of God but that desires to be “imprisoned’ and “divorced” by God (Risanen, 1975). The last two line which expresses on Christian belief that freedom- the soul’s spiritual freedom that goes to heaven is based on God’s subservience. According to Risanen (1975), for one to be captivated (which also means to be“enslaved”) by God is considered to be the best thing and the contrary when God ravishes you, you will be made the “chaste” spiritual DISCUSSIONS 3 equivalent. Donne as always delights in these apparent violent contradictions and in the sexual imagery used in an unanticipated context. The word pun means a humorous use of a phrase in suggesting its different meaning. And therefore, the word “ravish” as used by Donne meant that he was taking advantage of someone even if it carried the connotation of the less sexual fill with delight. He deliberately gave both a sacred and sexual interpretation of the word. The poem is not a love poem. The poem is about a speaker who is crippled with sin, weak, broken and desperate, he is begging for God to come and moderate him as he knows that he does not have the courage of finding God himself. The specific position Donne takes in the poem on the nature of a sinner- “…use your power to break my desire to sin, to blow my sin away, to burn impurities from my life..” In John Donne’s poem, “"Batter my heart, three-personed God," he uses paradox on the last two line which express on Christian belief that freedom- the soul’s spiritual freedom that goes to heaven is based on God’s subservience to show out the theme of religion, love and violence in the poem (Risanen, 1975). A scripture that is agreeing with Donne’s position- If we claim we have not sinned, we make him out to be a liar and his word is not in us (John 1:10). I see this scripture because the speaker in the poem admits that he is a sinner,“ …can I ever be without sin..” Rissanen, Paavo Olavi. John Donne's doctrine of the Church. Diss. University of Glasgow, 1975. 1. 3: We Real Cool DISCUSSIONS 4 We real cool, a light and simple poem that allows a reader to visualize his own settings and characters but specific enough in keeping a consistent image of rebellion. The attitude of Brook towards the characters is undecided. The poem involved fictional characters as it is like the reader is in the presence of the characters as they are introducing themselves. They speak with defiance and confidence, describing their self-ideals and actions in a rhythmic form stanza (Brooks, 1976). The writer has not presented any specific character backgrounds or ethnicities, nor time or year but only provided a fictional setting place- The Golden Shovel. We strike again in the poem can possible means fighting as strike means to punch or hit while another meaning can also be to light a cigarette. Moreover, we sing in the fifth stanza can have multiple meanings. The innocence and gentleness of singing if taken from a paradox perspective contradicts with the literal sin meaning (Brooks, 1976). Another meaning can be possibly singing along. The use of “we”s is mostly repeated in the poem and is meant to be softly said as though the characters in the poem are questioning the validity of their existence. It is the last line where brook does not employ caesura pauses and he did so because she wanted the structure of that line to be effective and also it was an indication that their actions will lead them to a tragic short life end. Brook used a simple sentence structure and limited vocabulary so as she could effectively convey her thoughts on the uncertainties that the poem subjects feel about their coolness and about themselves (Brooks, 1976). Besides, she used as a means of expressing content. DISCUSSIONS 5 Brooks disagrees both with values of the characters and the worldview as although the speaker is associating with the cool people when she uses “we”, she distances herself by using a sarcastic tone which showed that she was actually mocking the group. In Gwendolyn Brooks’ poem “We Real Cool,” she uses a mocking tone, a structure and a simplistic tone that emphasizes their poor decisions and actions to show that the cool people in the poem are naïve, immature and simplistic (Brooks, 1976). The intended audience in the poem we real cool are teenagers who have dropped out of school. Generally, the poem could be used anywhere to mentor any group of rebellious youngsters to be either female or white. The poem since its very powerful is trying to convey that to drop out of school and to roam the streets is not cool but a dead end street hence appropriate for youngsters who have committed or are about to conduct this behavior. Brooks, Gwendolyn. "'WE REAL COOL'." (1976): 6-6.

1.1: Psalm 1:3
A reflection of the above bible verse is that there is only a single tree and only found in
Jordan Valley, but the tree itself is very much beautiful to be passed over entirely; the oleander
with its dark green leaves and bright blossoms, gives a feature of the ridiculous garden to any
spot where it is growing. In the scriptures, it is rarely if ever referred to but it could be the tree
planted by the water streams “whose leaf cannot wither” and which forth brings his fruit in due
season (Creach, 1999).
In His season, admirable and golden word by which is affirmed the liberty of Christian
uprightness. The ungodly have their stated times, stated days, certain places and certain works; to
which they so closely stick, and that if their neighbors are perishing with hunger, from them,
they cannot be torn (Creach, 1999). However, this man who is blessed, free at all times for every
work in all places will serve you each time an opportunity is given to him. He is neither a
barbarian, nor a Greek, nor a Gentile, nor a Jew nor of any type of a person. He will so often
serve his fruit in his period as either man or God requires his work. And therefore, his
times/season and fruits have no name.
