Psychoanalytical criticism

Psychoanalytical criticism is a form of literary criticism or literary analysis which uses some of the techniques of psychoanalysis, such as conscious and unconscious; ego, superego, and id; Oedipus complex theory; transference; dream work; etc. Psychoanalysis has not only applied in literature, it has also been applied in sociology, anthropology, ethnology, religion, and mythology, arousing the interest of audience that had no inclination towards the clinical realm.

Music

There is no place in the face of the earth where people do not sing and where music is not treated as an art. Everyone think music as a part of his or her life. Whether to entertain or to find tranquility in this busy chaotic world, people turned toward music. People believe that without music there is no refinement, no culture, and no particular identity.

Wordsworth theory of poetic diction

What kind of language is appropriate for poetry?

Aristotle, Horace, Dante, Sidney, Dryden, and Johnson, had all advocated in a certain degree that a serious poet should use a lofty/high style language. They briefly discussed that the language of literature, whether poetry or drama, should be different from the language used in the real world. Wordsworth opposes this view, and in doing so, makes an ‘Objective’ analysis of the language of poetry.

Shelly as a Revolutionary Poet

Revolution is a dominant spirit in almost all the Romantic Poets. Percy Bysshe Shelley, a Romantic poet, is also called rebel for his idea of revolution in his poetry. He was one of the major English Romantic poets, and was regarded by some as the finest lyric, as well as epic, poet in the English language. HE was born in 4 August 1792 in Horsham, England. As the French Revolution dominated all politics in those years, unlike Wordsworth and Coleridge, Shelly never appalled by the ideals of revolution, though he was appalled by the dictatorship of Napoleon. Shelley only experienced the revolution at second hand through the books of various writers. When he looked back, all he could see was the flame of revolution still flickering in spite of the terror and disease.
