    urgent

    hello

    am in process of analysing the poem 'The Lamb' by blake

    it starts like the following

    Little lamb,who made thee,

    starts with apostrophe and ends with retorical question but my question is
    does the use of different technical devises change the meaning of the whole line

    please I need the answer as soon as possible

    thanks

    Little Lamb, who made you?
    It means, I wonder who made you. It's similar in structure to

    Hana, how are you?

    Hope that helps.

    A thing of beauty is a joy for ever:
    Its loveliness increases; it will never

    Pass into nothingness; but still will keep
    A bower quiet for us, and a sleep
    Full of sweet dreams, and health, and quiet breathing.
    Therefore, on every morrow, are we wreathing
    A flowery band to bind us to the earth,
    Spite of despondence, of the inhuman dearth
    Of noble natures, of the gloomy days,
    Of all the unhealthy and o'er-darkened ways
    Made for our searching: yes, in spite of all,
    Some shape of beauty moves away the pall
    From our dark spirits. Such the sun, the moon,
    Trees old and young, sprouting a shady boon
    For simple sheep; and such are daffodils
    With the green world they live in; and clear rills
    That for themselves a cooling covert make
    'Gainst the hot season; the mid forest brake,
    Rich with a sprinkling of fair musk-rose blooms:
    And such too is the grandeur of the dooms
    We have imagined for the mighty dead;
    All lovely tales that we have heard or read:
    An endless fountain of immortal drink,
    Pouring unto us from the heaven's brink.
    Nor do we merely feel these essences
    For one short hour; no, even as the trees
    That whisper round a temple become soon
    Dear as the temple's self, so does the moon,
    The passion poesy, glories infinite,

    this poem by john keats

    I think its something between celebrating eternity and the love of youth forever
    but how can you approach to the analysis of these lines
    Spite of despondence, of the inhuman dearth
    Of noble natures, of the gloomy days,
    Of all the unhealthy and o'er-darkened ways
    when I read this already I remember apoem because I couldnt stop for death

    and how people look for eternity .Is the speaker happy after having what he wants.is there any thing belong to greek mythologyEndymion .does he need heaven on earth like khubla khan.
