Stylistics is a branch of Applied Linguistics and deals with the various levels of language – graphological/phonological, lexical, syntactic, and semantic/discourse. In this book, each level is lucidly explained with relevant theoretical concepts, and they are practically applied to two poems as model-exercises. With the evidences explicitly available and insinuations implicitly conveyed in the text, each poem is insightfully examined through a linguistics lens to explore the stylistic nuances embedded in it. It can be exciting and interesting to anyone interested in the English language and poetic style in addition to students of literature.

The Image of Modern Man in T. S. Eliot's Poetry The book , presents an original understanding of The Image of Modern Man in T. S. Eliots complex and difficult poems in an easy and understandable way. Eliots vision of the Modern Man and the modern world is depicted throughout Eliots most well-known poems. Eliot was criticized by some critics for the quality of his work. The aim of this book is to show what an excellent and successful writer he is, to reveal the value and the contemporaneity of his work. His poetry is highly evaluated for its unique way of depicting the Modern humanity by realizing their problems as well as finding solutions for them. The book is a great help not only for students, but also for researchers as the writer has spent much time in reading Eliots Poems. He has also written an ample introduction about modernism, modernity, modern literature and modern poetry, which might be enough to understand the rise of modern poetry. ... All of Eliots poems especially The Waste Land has presented readers with all the aspects of the modern life. Life is depicted as a mirror, broken and shattered into pieces as it is clear in the different parts of the poem. Eliot unlike many poets did not leave the modern man lost in despair but he finds them, their peace of mind by having a true and stable faith as well as their turning to God. The only solution for the entire problems of modern man is to turn to God and neglect the world that completely occupied them spiritually. ...Modern man has lost his values especially women by only looking after children, many of them turned to prostitution because they did not have any source of income; therefore, they used that as a way to earn money to maintain life. These are the characteristics of the modern city, which are shared by all the countries, especially Europe. Eliot insists on the necessity of turning from world to God. He believed that God can solve their problems, because man or any other earthly power could not change that gloomy and aimless life, which modern man complained against.

Mastering Arabic Through Literature

The book aims at enabling students to read, enjoy, and appreciate Arabic poetry through a set of activities--pre-reading; reading; follow-up; and reading alone.

In an innovative approach to teaching Modern Standard Arabic, this new content-based book aims to bolster study for advanced high students in both linguistic skills and literary appreciation through the reading of a wide variety of original modern Arabic poetry by ten prominent writers: Abu al-Qasim al-Shabbi, Mahmoud Darwish, Abd al-Mu'ti Higazi, Said Aql, Fadwa Touqan, Elia Abu Madi, Salah Abdel Sabour, Adonis, Nizar Qabbani, and Ahmad Shawqi. The book aims at enabling students to read, enjoy, and appreciate Arabic poetry through a set of activities-pre-reading; reading; follow-up; and reading alone. These activities facilitate the student's grasp of the structural complexity, lack of conformity to standard grammatical rules, and unfamiliar cultural perspectives that are known to make reading poetry difficult in any language. Mastering Arabic through Literature, Volume 3: Poetry adopts an integrated skills approach that emphasizes all language skills in the effective articulation of ideas and meaningful communication. It also fosters the learning of vocabulary and idiomatic expressions and boosts learners' metaphoric use of the language. The book is divided into four units, each unit drawing on the works of the ten poets to explore and analyze a particular aspect of Arabic poetry. It begins with coverage of the literary theory on modern Arabic poetry. Unit 1 then outlines main topics and issues in modern Arabic poetry, using reading and analysis of excerpts from the works of the poets covered; Unit 2 focuses on imagery in modern Arabic poetry with samples for study from the works of the ten poets; Unit 3 focuses on music in Arabic poetry and how rhythm is used by different poets for different purposes; and Unit 4 focuses on poetic language and style in modern Arabic literature.

Wallace Stevens: Poetry as Life delves into every phase of Stevens' life--from his childhood in Pennsylvania, his years at Harvard, and his short stay in New York to his life-long choice of a home in Hartford, Connecticut, and a career in the insurance business. The importance of Stevens' relationship to his father is stressed, and also the contribution to his growth of Santayana, Bergson, Pater, and Pascal, among others. His deep feeling for things French, and his unusual appreciation of painting are also assessed, as they relate to the development of his finely tempered artistry and special conception of art.

Sometimes it seems like there are as many definitions of poetry as there are poems. Coleridge defined poetry as “the best words in the best order.” St. Augustine called it “the Devil’s wine.” For Shelley, poetry was “the record of the best and happiest moments of the happiest and best minds.” But no matter how you define it, poetry has exercised a hold upon the hearts and minds of people for more than five millennia. That’s because for the attentive reader, poetry has the power to send chills shooting down the spine and lightning bolts flashing in the brain — to throw open the doors of perception and hone our sensibilities to a scalpel’s edge. Poetry For Dummies is a great guide to reading and writing poems, not only for beginners, but for anyone interested in verse. From Homer to Basho, Chaucer to Rumi, Shelley to Ginsberg, it introduces you to poetry’s greatest practitioners.
