The poem, “Apostrophe to the Ocean,” is one of the most renowned masterpieces of George Gordon Byron, which conveys the author’s love for nature by including his unique, romantic style of writing. As this poem is entirely dedicated to the mighty ocean, the main subject of this work is about man versus nature. George Byron also discusses his views about the industrialization; throughout the poem, he hints on the deleterious effects of human exploitations. Therefore, the poem, “Apostrophe to the Ocean,” paints George Byron’s view of the concept – man versus nature – by revealing his belief: the power of nature is insurmountable.
To begin with, unlike the other romantic poems that were

Earth has been called the blue planet and not without reason. The ocean covers about three quarters of the earth’s surface and plays a vital role in our survival. It bounty feeds millions of people daily. Its surface absorbs more than ninety five percent of the solar radiation that reaches our planet. It is integral to the water cycle and it regulates our planets climate. But none of these roles would be fulfilled without the movement of the ocean. The currents, ribbons of movement within the greater body of water, provide the means with which our ocean distributes the nutrients and energy necessary for continued life upon earth. What are these currents and why are they so essential to our

This report breaks down and compares key aspects of three separate ocean wave power generators: permanent-magnet tubular linear generators, hybrid air-wave turbine generators and wave tunnel generators. Each individual generator type is to be described and analyzed on topics such as a general background on design and functionality, applicable locations, costs and efficiency using research and diagrams to support explanations where necessary. Though these forms of power generation are not effective enough to serve as a substitute for fossil fuels entirely, they are capable of reducing human reliance on strictly fossil fuels and are thus a worthy subject to invest research into.

In 2004 The US Ocean Commission proposed several critical recommendations to address the health and management of our oceans. These recommendations range from better organization of current management offices to education of the public on issues pertaining to oceans and coastal areas. The importance of healthy oceans, waterways, and coastal areas cannot be denied. As humans we rely on these areas for food, fuel, materials for various products, and recreation just to name a few. Aside from the human aspect the health of the earth’s oceans is also bound to the air and land. Many other creatures throughout the world depend on a harmonious balance of the human species with the waters that

Effects of the Apostrophe on Communication in “Ode to the Apostrophe”
Elizabeth Zeitlin's poem titled “Ode to the Apostrophe” immediately reveals the topic of the poem; with an “Ode” referring to a type of lyrical poem meant to be sung, and the subject being the apostrophe. Zeitlin shows through an informal and welcoming style that the apostrophe is an important vessel of communication, acting as a messenger with no innate characteristics of good or bad. In that regard, the misuse of the apostrophe leads to conflict and often results in miscommunication. Towards the end of the poem, Zeitlin elaborates on the human nature of mistaking the state of being, with the act of possession. “Ode

Another figurative language applied in this poem is apostrophe. Apostrophe is a kind of personification in which a person calls out to something or someone who isn’t there or can’t answer you back. Apostrophe can be seen in stanza 2, “O heart! heart! heart!”, as heart can’t answer the speaker. “O Captain! My Captain!” in stanza 3 is also an apostrophe, since the captain has already described “fallen cold and dead”. Lastly, “Exult, O shores, and ring, O bells!”, as neither shores nor

Of course, it is known that wind can not have a trumpet, as it does not have the fingers, lips or knowledge to play that instrument. However, Shelley uses an example that a human can do to wind, so another person can understand the respect of Nature, and his respect for it. “Shelley personifies many of nature's elements by attaching descriptions of remains of death that are typically human” (StudyMode).

Douglass would never have been given the passion to learn to read. Frederick's realization that what was good for his master was inherently bad for him might not have come, and he would have remained enslaved, never escaping to write his autobiography. Certainly Douglass realized this, and the importance of that afternoon on the outcome of his life, and therefore chose to highlight its importance to us as readers through the use of the chiasmus.
A third chiasmus can be found at the beginning of Douglass' apostrophe to the ships on Chesapeake Bay. In this emotional outpouring to the personified ships on the water, he again uses the chiasmus to highlight the irony of slavery. "You are loosed

Ocean and Climate
The ocean and its massive flow of water or currents are vital to how the heat energy moves between the Earth’s bodies of water, landforms and atmosphere. The ocean is a crucial factor in the storage and transfer of heat energy across the earth. The movement of heat through the ocean currents affects the regulation of weather conditions and temperature extremes. The global climate is directly impacted by the ocean’s current. “The ocean covers more than 71 percent of the Earth’s surface and holds 97 percent of its water” (National Geographic). Ocean currents are located on the surface of the ocean and deep in the water below. The currents can move horizontally and

Making up almost ¾ of the worlds surface, oceans are easily the biggest bodies of water on land, and home to the biggest ecosystem of animal life on the planet. The ocean is so big; researchers say that not even half of the ocean has been explored yet. I agree with Sylvia Earle's argument. I believe that oceans do need to be protected along with all life forms inside it. Of course, there will always be fishing, but we need to look beyond that.

Marine pollution is the cause of materials entering the ocean and harming the marine life as well as the water. Marine pollution has been going on since the beginning of time. As time has gone by the problem has been helped by many organizations and federal governments taking action with this cause by adding laws to try and protect the oceans from many harms.

A former teacher, Augustine was known as a dazzling rhetorician, and became an orator for the city, gradually moving up the imperial hierarchy. In this passage from his Confessions, Saint Augustine turns the literary artistry of his oratorical talents to the task of describing his disillusionment with Manicheism in the form of a prayer addressed directly to the Heavenly Father.

There are two causes of ocean currents: wind and convection. The more important of the two is convection. The act of convection in a fluid is the tendency of a heated part of the fluid to rise up due to the fact the it is less dense and it is replaced by cooler fluid which is then heated, rises up, and again replaced by cooler fluid. There has been plenty of recent research on the topic of ocean currents and convection, some of which might change the way we view the ocean. In this paper I will explain exactly what convection is, I will explain how and why it makes such a drastic effect in our ocean, and I will discuss the latest research that has been done on ocean currents.

Ocean acidification is an increasing problem that many people do not realize or understand. Ocean acidification is a result of excessive amounts of anthropogenic carbon dioxide dissolving in the ocean. The carbon cycle helps dissolve carbon dioxide into ocean water for photosynthetic sea creatures, however, too much goes in and not enough comes out. The excess carbon dioxide reacts with the water to form carbonic acid, which is a weak acid (Ocean Carbon Uptake). Carbonic acid has such an unstable bond that it loses a proton and decomposes into two bicarbonate anions and a hydrogen cation. The hydrogen cation is the most common proton that is lost.

Emerson’s “The Rhodora” is about a purple flower in the rhododendron family. Unlike its sister plant, Rhododendron ponticum, the Rhodora grows near bogs or unfertile and acidic soil. The Rhodora has no leaves and its blooms sprout directly from the stem. The Rhodora grows in solitude, away from other flowers that are considered to be immensely beautiful. “The Rhodora” contemplates the beauty of a simple flower and its effect on its surroundings. In the poem, Emerson’s speaker discovers that nature is beautiful and needs no excuse for being. This is accomplished by the uses of imagery, personification and apostrophe, and metaphor.

Apostrophe provides a speaker the opportunity to think aloud. Another figure of speech is an overstatement or hyperbole, which is the use of exaggeration to emphasize something such as the statement. For example, we can say “I would eat a cow,” but it is only to convey being hungry. Additionally, paradox is a statement that initially appears to be contradictory but turns out to make sense. It is useful in poetry because it grabs the reader's attention by its seemingly stubborn refusal to make sense. Finally, Meyer

Human activities have led to an exponential increase in the use of fossil fuel. The benefits of using fossil fuels are short lived in comparison to its long-term negative effects. In the last couple of decades, the major consumption of fossil fuel played a significant role in the rise of concentration of CO2 in the atmosphere. Roughly two trillion metric tons of CO2 have been emitted in the atmosphere and over a quarter of these got mixed with the ocean water resulting in ocean acidification (Buffie and Carr, 2010).

Everything in this world we use comes from the ocean in some way. The air we breathe, the water we drink, even the products we use day to day, would not be possible without the ocean. That's why the issue of ocean pollution is so important and needs to be addressed as soon as possible. We depend on the ocean for so much in our life, without it we would surely become extinct. People seem to think that since the ocean is so large and vast, we can dump as much waste as we'd like into it and it will never have an effect on us. However, since we've been polluting the ocean as far back as Roman times, the evidence of ocean pollution becoming a major problem is all too clear.

Surface current are found in the upper four hundred meters (400m) and makes up about ten percent (10%) of ocean (Briney, n.d.). Surface ocean currents are as a result of friction between the water and atmosphere interface. The wind exerts a force or stress to the ocean surface and causes the water to move.

Especially that other people see it not just one or two people but thousands of people see it. When people see that there’s trash all around the area there not going to want to go back to that ocean or that part that they went to because they see that it’s all trashy there and it’s not healthy for humans and the ocean. I just don’t like seeing trash anywhere just all over the place I think it’s gross. So I want to talk about this because I don’t like it and I think it’s a good subject to talk
