For Blake, the act of creation is itself a fall into the material world, where flawed creators struggle with each other and with the intractable elements of the cosmos.

Hopkins has been seen as a precursor of the modernist poetry and the bridge between Romanticism and Victorian Era, due to his description of love of nature in his poems; since he was a contemporary of Charles Darwin world of Nature , and we can see this kind of description in his poem: Pied Beauty. This sonnet Pied Beauty was written when he was in St. In these authors religion plays an important role, as we will see when we analyze the poems.
But, it exists a small difference on the way to write poetry related to religion between them, because Hopkins was a priest and he had some topics prohibited, and for this reason when he became priest he had to burn some of his poems; while Blake had more freedom to write.
What would you choose?
It is said that they are two of the most relevant writers of English poetry. Their inspirations for writing poetry were very different. William Blake decided to write poetry due to his mystical visions; whereas Hopkins decided to do it, because his father published a volume of poetry the year before his birth; perhaps, he tried to follow the steps of his father. As we will see, both writers write poetry influenced by their period time. William Blake lived in a period of transition Enlightenment- Romantic period , and Hopkins lived in the Victorian Era.
The Age of Enlightenment in 17 th century is the period of philosophers and rationalism, capitalism, liberalism, power of science, democracy, freedom… and the Romantic Period is the opposite to Age of Enlightenment, is a break, in which the importance of rationalism disappears and is replaced by the imagination, feelings, importance of nature, subjectivism… Romantic Period appears in Western Europe in 18 th century. The above mentioned period is marked by the French Revolution, which is a revolution against the aristocracy, because bourgeoisie wanted the same privileges than aristocracy.

Because in that moment, there was a crisis in the finances, and the taxes arose, and the aristocracy did not pay the taxes, for this reason the bourgeoisie were revealed against. So, Blake who was a bourgeois, he also revealed against.

The Victorian Era was the period of the Queen Victoria. This period was marked by the Industrial Revolution. During the Victorian Era, in England the society was structured in four classes: Church, Aristocracy, middle-class and working-class. The middle class were owners of factories, and the working-class the people who worked in those factories.
There was a separation in the working- class in people who worked and people who did not. And all of them had to pay taxes, and they lived under bad conditions. Both of them were rebels against the society of their time. But the difference was important because Blake was a well-known rebel in his time and was considered crazy by people, whereas Hopkins was popular after his death thanks to his friend Robert Bridges, who published his poems. As we know, and we have seen in my first paper, Blake lived during the French Revolution, and even he has a poem with this title; while Hopkins lived during Victorian Period, one of the best moments for England in which was richest and strongest country.
Now, we are going to talk about the difference between Romantic poetry and Victorian poetry, taking the examples of Blake and Hopkins. On the one hand, W.
On the other hand, Hopkins as a Victorian poet expresses optimism. And the Curtal sonnet, we will see it better when we analyze the poem. To conclude, we will say that both poems talk about the beauty and perfection of nature, created by God, and about the relation of man with nature. Blake describes the world of the Lamb as perfect and happy. It was a little strange, as I recall, as though the dialog was uncomfortable with relying on the audience's memory.
Also, there's the fact that, in a very material sense, the Dominion War would not have happened had Star Trek: The Next Generation stayed on the air. But that's another story I rewatched this a couple of weeks ago, and I thought tehy actually did a good job of making the "hey, audience, remember this?
Also, I really liked those two crewmembers and their interactions. I wish they'd brought them back, maybe in "Lower Decks" or something. I think maybe I didn't click in on the fact that she was the only one who'd been around for the prior episode, so I was wrapped up in the fact that the mode of her exposition wasn't markedly different from when they introduce a previously-unmentioned offscreen-backstory. Yep the Dominion War - I am actually looking forwards to that section in your analysis, not because I like the war I missed most of due to my own boredom with it when it aired in the UK , but just that it will be interesting to be looking at it with fresh eyes.
And it only makes sense that the Borg would turn to grimdark after assimilating the concept of individuality and self-worth that the Enterprise crew tried to teach Hugh, because grimdark is also fundamentally capitalistic. Because media is a defining force in modern society, and because modern media privileges the targeting of western adolescents and adolescent emotions above all others, grimdark has become profitable and successful to the point of becoming hegemonic: A perfect case study for the Borg in practice.
This and so much of what follows in the article is simply brilliant.
I have always loved Descent and what it represented - "Grimdark is the antithesis of empathy" - oh hell yes. The paragraph where you describe the actions of terrorists, fundamentalists and technoscientists is a perfect summation of the anti-empathy forces in our world. Thanks Josh for a great piece.

An entryist coup for your subconscious. Up front, it's the first time Star Trek: The Next Generation has done a cliffhanger season finale more or less only because this is the sort of thing it does to close off filming block seasons; in other words, the first time the cliffhanger finale structure is implemented as a matter of course and functional habit instead of being the result of unexpected necessity. Her very condemnation of Picard's choice lets us know that he made the right one.
They've taken two of the most sacred tenets by which Star Trek operates, ground them into the engines of capitalism and turned them back against us in an attempt to quell any resistance we could offer before we reached a point where we were prepared to effect change. The Borg's endgame is, and always has been, to kill off Star Trek as Star Trek: The Next Generation before it transitions to the form that will do battle with them on their own terms.
And even if they were to fail here, they'd still be ready for us in the future.
