Metaphysical poetry is defined as poetry dating from the 17th century in Britain that has an abstract and ethereal style. Such poetry used a variety of forms and structures, but employed similar styles. The term was first coined by John Dryden in 1693 when he described a poem by John Donne as affecting “the metaphysical.” It was later popularized by Samuel Johnson in 1781. Poetry was described by Aristotle, in his “Poetics,” as describing emotions. This was compared with prose, which described facts and actions. Poetry does not have to adhere to such narrow constraints; in fact, descriptive poetry and epic poetry go against Aristotle's ideas and describe events or things. Metaphysical poetry, of all types, veers towards not only emotion, but emotional ideas of the abstract. They are not concerned with war or love, but with the world in a non-scientific sense. Seventeenth century lyrical poets gave rise to the idea of metaphysical poetry in Britain. The 1600s were a complicated and fast-moving time ...

Mac Flecknoe BY JOHN DRYDEN A Satire upon the True-blue Protestant Poet T.S. All human things are subject to decay, And, when Fate summons, monarchs must obey: This Flecknoe found, who, like Augustus, young Was call'd to empire, and had govern'd long: In prose and verse, was own'd, without dispute Through all the realms of Non-sense, absolute. This aged prince now flourishing in peace, And blest with issue of a large increase, Worn out with business, did at length debate To settle the succession of the State: And pond'ring which of all his sons was fit To reign, and wage immortal war with wit; Cry'd, 'tis resolv'd; for nature pleads that he Should only rule, who most resembles me: Shadwell alone my perfect image bears, Mature in dullness from his tender years. Shadwell alone, of all my sons, is he Who stands confirm'd in full stupidity. The rest to some faint meaning make pretence, But Shadwell never deviates into sense. Some beams of wit on other souls may fall, Strike through and make a lucid interval; ...

William Shakespeare ("Bard of Avon") 26 April 1564 to 23 April 1616 “The first thing we do, let's kill all the lawyers.” An English poet and playwright, widely regarded as the greatest writer in the English language and the world's pre-eminent dramatist. He is often called England's national poet and the "Bard of Avon". His extant works, including some collaborations, consist of about 38 plays, 154 sonnets, two long narrative poems, and a few other verses, the authorship of some of which is uncertain. His plays have been translated into every major living language and are performed more often than those of any other playwright. Shakespeare was born and brought up in Stratford-upon-Avon. At the age of 18, he married Anne Hathaway, with whom he had three children: Susanna, and twinsHamnet and Judith. Between 1585 and 1592, he began a successful career in London as an actor, writer, and part-owner of a playing company called the Lord Chamberlain's Men, later known as the King's Men. He appears to have r ...

Just doing some research and came upon this: The Royal College of St. Peter in Westminster, better known as Westminster School and standing in the precincts of Westminster Abbey in London, is one of Britain's leading independent schools, with the highest Oxford and Cambridge acceptance rates of any secondary school or college in Britain. With a history going back to the 11th century, the school's notable alumni include Ben Jonson, John Dryden, Robert Hooke, Christopher Wren, John Locke, Jeremy Bentham, Edward Gibbon, Henry Mayhew, A. A. Milne, Tony Benn and seven Prime Ministers. The school traditionally encourages independent and individual thinking.

Devotions for Week of 23-29 June 2013 Sunday, 23 June Quote “There is a lust in man no charm can tame, Of loudly publishing his neighbor’s shame. Hence, on eagle’s wings immortal scandals fly. While virtuous actions are but born and die.” John Dryden, Great Britain, 17th Century Scripture “An ungodly man digs up evil, and it is on his lips like a burning fire. A perverse man sows strife, and a whisperer separates the best of friends.” (Proverbs 16:26-27, NKJV) Devotional Thought from Chaplain Johnson If there is one thing which will cause friction to grown between soldiers in a unit, it is gossip. When one or more individuals spend their time speaking about others behind their back without giving them a chance to respond with a fair hearing, friendships are broken and morale is reduced. Even chaplains struggle with this because they are the “sounding boards” for commanders, staff officers and NCOs, and the junior enlisted. We have to be known as trustworthy if people want to confide in ...
John Donne, one of the most famous metaphysical poets. The metaphysical poets is a term coined by the poet and critic Samuel Johnson to describe a loose group of British lyric poets of the 17th century, whose work was characterized by the inventive use of conceits, and by speculation about topics such as love or religion. These poets were not formally affiliated; most of them did not even know or read each other. Origin of the name In the chapter on Abraham Cowley in his Lives of the Most Eminent English Poets (1779-81), Samuel Johnson refers to the beginning of the seventeenth century in which there "appeared a race of writers that may be termed the metaphysical poets". This does not necessarily imply that he intended metaphysical to be used in its true sense, in that he was probably referring to a witticism of John Dryden,[1] who said of John Donne: "He affects the metaphysics, not only in his satires, but in his amorous verses, where nature only should reign; and perplexes the minds of the fair sex wit ...

" Teacher Disciplined For Advising Students of Constitutional Rights Students forced to take survey about “drug use,” “emotions” A high school teacher in Chicago was disciplined by a school board after he warned students that they should assert their 5th amendment right not to self-incriminate in response to a survey which demanded students provide details about their drug use and “emotions,” leading to a possible visit with a social worker. Despite receiving support from eighteen speakers at a Batavia school board meeting yesterday, school officials hit social studies teacher John Dryden with a “letter of remedy,” which threatens more consequences if he fails to fulfil a list of demands. “Dryden told three of his classes that they had a Fifth Amendment right to not incriminate themselves when they took a social-emotional learning survey April 18,” reports the Daily Herald. “Some of the 34 questions asked students about their drug and alcohol use, as well as about their emotions.

Yes, yes, I know, but I find this kind of thing fascinating and I'm silly enough to tthink that some of you might too, lol. Turn of phrase Meaning A distinctive spoken or written expression. Origin 'Turn of phrase' is a commonplace but rather odd expression - in what sense can a phrase be 'turned'? Ladies are, or at least used to be, sometimes described as having 'well-turned' legs/thighs/ankles, but that derives from an allusion to the symmetry and precision of wood turning, which hardly seems appropriate for an abstract entity like a phrase. What is a phrase anyway? Well, there's no exact definition and so it depends on who you ask. Had you been around in 1530 when the word 'phrase' was coined, you would have been wise not to have asked the language scholar John Palsgrave. It was he who first put the word into print but, confusingly, gave two differing examples of its meaning. Palsgrave's aim was to help Englishmen to learn to speak French and to that end he published Lesclarcissement de la Langue Franc ...

When English arrived in America, they were quick to ascertain their identity on the language as American English as opposed to British English. As a result to have to study the American influence on the English language. Indians, on the other hand, have only licked the boots of the English even after booting them out of the country. English departments in India, instead of trying to foster a new Indian English (which already exists), have been too focused in trying to understand the Western counterparts (not all are English; Yeats is Irish, Eliot American etc). They, obviously, should be read, but not at the expense of Indian English writers. We know everything about Modernism in the West, from Pound to Eliot to Yeats, but hardly know anything about Ezekiel, Kolatkar, Mehrotra, P Lal, Kamala Das, Eunice D Souza, Mahapatra, Agha Shahid Ali, who brought in modernism to Indian English poetry.

Upon learning of the passing of legendary driver 'Irish' Jack Murphy, RPW's own John Meloling put together a small tribute album from better times at the Dirt Motorsports Hall of Fame. 'Irish' Jack Murphy was a native of Liverpool, New York and upon returning from the service, he began his racing career at Brewerton and Lafayette Speedways in 1949. A member of the gilded age of racing, much like Frankie Schneider, Jack quickly gained notoriety as not only a fearsome competitor, but also for the machine he wheeled on a weekly basis. His white and green racer sported the number 6, which he ran for his entire career, surrouded by a shamrock thus earning him his famous moniker. A track champion, in 1952 at Oswego Speedway, Jack also spent many seasons running at tracks like Brewerton, Dryden, Canandaigua and many other speed plants in the Northeast. A Hall of Famer, Jack's more notable victories came at Syracuse winning the first Labor Day race in 1959. An event that he would win again 11 years later. He also ...

Restoration literature written during the historical period commonly referred to as the English Restoration (1660–1689), which corresponds to the last years of the direct Stuart reign in England, Scotland, Wales, and Ireland. In general, the term is used to denote roughly homogeneous styles of literature that center on a celebration of or reaction to the restored court of Charles II. It is a literature that includes extremes, for it encompasses both Paradise Lostand the Earl of Rochester's Sodom, the high-spirited sexual comedy of The Country Wife and the moral wisdom of The Pilgrim's Progress. It saw Locke'sTreatises of Government, the founding of the Royal Society, the experiments and holy meditations of Robert Boyle, the hysterical attacks on theaters from Jeremy Collier, and the pioneering of literary criticism from John Dryden and John Dennis. The period witnessed news become a commodity, the essay developed into a periodical art form, and the beginnings of textual criticism. The dates for Restorat ...

British literature journey for today: John Dryden/ Aphra Behn/struggles between religion and politics. Okay, his day is done.
The age of Elizabeth, memorable for so many reasons in the history of England, was especially brilliant in literature, and, within literature, in the drama. With some falling off in spontaneity, the impulse to great dramatic production lasted till the Long Parliament closed the theaters in 1642; and when they were reopened at the Restoration, in 1660, the stage only too faithfully reflected the debased moral tone of the court society of Charles II. John Dryden (1631-1700), the great representative figure in the literature of the latter part of the seventeenth century, exemplifies in his work most of the main tendencies of the time. He came into notice with a poem on the death of Cromwell in 1658, and two years later was composing couplets expressing his loyalty to the returned king. He married Lady Elizabeth Howard, the daughter of a royalist house, and for practically all the rest of his life remained an adherent of the Tory Party. In 1663 he began writing for the stage, and during the next thirty years ...

John Dryden (9 August 1631 – 1 May 1700) was an influential English poet, literary critic, translator, and playwright who dominated the literary life of Restoration England to such a point that the period came to be known in literary circles as the Age of Dryden. Walter Scott called him "Glorious John." He was made Poet Laureate in 1668. Early life Dryden was born in the village rectory of Aldwincle near Thrapston in Northamptonshire, where his maternal grandfather was Rector of All Saints. He was the eldest of fourteen children born to Erasmus Dryden and wife Mary Pickering, paternal grandson of Sir Erasmus Dryden, 1st Baronet (1553–1632) and wife Frances Wilkes, Puritan landowning gentry who supported the Puritan cause and Parliament. He was also a second cousin once removed of Jonathan Swift. As a boy Dryden lived in the nearby village of Titchmarsh, Northamptonshire where it is also likely that he received his first education. In 1644 he was sent to Westminster School as a King’s Scholar where h ...
"Love is the glue that cements friendships, but jealousy is the slime that keeps it from sticking." (John Dryden as quoted by Pat Riley in the Winner Within.
Bridget's older brother Erasmus Dryden later became the grandfather of the famous English poet John Dryden (see pedigree chart). Many in her family were Puritans, and at least one relative had been imprisoned in the Tower of London for suggesting religious reforms. The Dryden ancestry traces back through English nobility and the royal lines of Alfred the Great and Charlemagne.

What is Romanticism? The following are a few definitions of Romanticism and related terms that I have found to be very helpful. Please keep in mind that the term "Romanticism" has been used in varying contexts and has come to mean different things to different people. The following definitions are pulled from literary contexts and for the purposes of this web site are merely a jumping point for further discussion. The following definitions include the citation to their respective sources. Romanticism: A movement in art and literature in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries in revolt against the Neoclassicism of the previous centuries...The German poet Friedrich Schlegel, who is given credit for first using the term romantic to describe literature, defined it as "literature depicting emotional matter in an imaginative form." This is as accurate a general definition as can be accomplished, although Victor Hugo's phrase "liberalism in literature" is also apt. Imagination, emotion, and freedom are certainl ...
