GRIN Verlag, 2009 - 28 pages
Essay from the year 2007 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 1, University of Gottingen (Englisches Seminar ), course: English Poetry Through The Ages, language: English, abstract: Gedichtinterpretation von Oscar Wilde's "The Harlot's House" This paper wants to examine Oscar Wilde's poem "The Harlot's House." For that purpose, two steps seem necessary to me. Initially, the prosodic, metric and rhetorical elements and figures should be analysed in a sort of "survey" to get a first approach to the poem. Building on these observations, an interpretation will be attempted."
