Question description

I need help answering attached workwheet

Literature analysis worksheet 2 The poems “Richard Cory,” “Sonnet XVIII,” “Ozymandias,” and “Famous” all deal with fame in some way. Is fame fleeting? Is fame eternal? Is being rich and famous all it seems to be? What does “famous” really mean? 1. How does Shakespeare say he will preserve the beauty (and fame) of the person he loves? Why do you think the person he’s writing about is unnamed? 2. “Ozymandias” is based on a broken statue of Ramses II. What is Shelley saying about fame? 3. Do you think Shakespeare’s sonnet and “Ozymandias” are saying contrasting things about fame? Does it make a difference that Ramses II was a powerful ruler and Shakespeare’s sonnet is personal? 4. What is the meaning (argument) of “Richard Cory”? 5. What is the meaning of famous in Naomi Shihab Nye’s poem? Why do you think she chose to use the word famous? Is there a more accurate word she could have used? Would that have made the poem better, or worse? 6. “To Be of Use” does not use the word famous or talk about fame directly, yet isn’t the poem in a way saying something about fame? What is it? Is its meaning the same as the meaning of the poem “Famous”? Explain.
