The perfect standard of a situation based on a persons morals; An ideal goal
Joy and Inspiration:
Joy: A feeling of great pleasure and
happiness; deeper than normal

doing what brings us joy
ROBINSON: RICHARD CORY
Other people admired Richard Cory and wished they were in his place as they thought he was a rich gentleman. Richard did not admire himself and did not see in him what others saw, he saw himself as worthless and committed suicide. I think he had a bad sense of self because what others thought of him did not match what he thought about himself.
ROBINSON: MINIVER CORY
Miniver wishes and imagines living in the mid-evil era and because he cannot accept his reality he drinks to cover up his pain. He has a low sense of self because he drinks to avoid knowing who he is and lives in his imagination instead of facing reality.
FROST: MENDING WALL
-The speakers Neighbours ideal is that “Good fences make good Neighbours”
- Neighbour is stuck in his ways of his father and thinks walls make good relationships
- The speaker doesn’t understand the point of having a wall, and would think it would be ideal to not have it.
FROST: THE DEATH OF THE HIRED MAN
- Warrens resents Silas for never because at the farm when they needed him
- Silas came back to the farm to his wrong doing before he died
- Mary’s compassionate Character softened Warren into forgiving Silas
- Silas’s Ideals were to come back to the farm and fix things with Warren before he died
CRANE: WAR IS KIND
Talks about the many tragedies of lost loved ones and bitterly/ sarcastically states that “War is kind” when it’s nothing but that.
- the speakers ideal is that there shouldn’t ever be war and that we shouldn’t have to go through losing our loved ones
CRANE: A Newspaper
This poems talks about the different things a newspaper can have in it and how they all make loud rumours that spread quickly.
- the poet is saying that all types of people read them, the kind who mock and spread rumours and the kind that feel bad for them
- the poets ideal is that the world would be Newspaper free so that people could live freely without worrying they will be mocked
There are three travellers, the first one believe that truth is a mighty fortress. The second traveler believes you can pursue truth but never touch it/ get to it
The third traveller (the poet) agreed with the second traveler
- The first travellers ideals are that Truth is his base and what keeps him strong
- the second and third travellers ideals are that they will never get to truth but always be chasing after it
CRANE: ONCE THERE CAME A MAN
A man orders all the men in the world to stand in rows (go to war) the men agreed over whether they should stay in the row or not and those who didn’t were killed.
The poets ideals is that it’s better when you take your own path and don’t conform to the world
WORDSWORTH: I wandered lonely as a cloud
The Poet was wandering and being lonely and ran into a field of daffodils that brought him happiness afterwards while he was thinking about it laying on the couch.
He got joy from the daffodils which inspired him to dance with them
WORDSWORTH: She Dwelt among the untrodden ways
was most comfortable when she wasn’t around people so she lived where people never went
he was inspired by her and missed a lot when she died
SANDBURG: THE RIGHT TO GRIEF
- The poet is saying it’s okay to grieve even if others don’t even though they should.
- he feels sorrow for the deaths and the families who lost don’t
- the poet is inspiring the readers that it’s okay to grief even when others don’t
In the first Stanza he talks about how he regrets meeting and marrying mag and in the second stanza he regrets having kids and the responsibility that came with them
MASTERS: DAISY FRASER
-She was a prostitute who had to pay a fine even though rich ppl did bad things and didn’t pay.
- She’s confused about good/evil and depends on her status
- She has a high sense of self because who she is matched with what others think of her and she knows where her status is
Masters: judge Selah Lively
- He worked hard to get a high position and then mistreated the people who mistreated him
MASTERS: REUBEN PANTIER
- He got in trouble when he was still finding out who he was and was with a prostitute and Emily Sparks care and love for him is what reminded him of what was right
-She had a strong Sense of self because she knew her purpose and knew how to help her student
MASTERS: CONSTANT HATLEY
She raised her niece, Irene and Mary only so that she would look good to others and not because she actually wanted to. The nieces didn’t like her because the knew her motives.
- I think she had a low sense of self because what she portrayed to others did not match up to what her actual motives were in raising her Niece.
