1194 words - 5 pages Fahrenheit 451 is a well-written book that tells a story ofa dream world and one man who wakes up from that dream. Montag, the protagonist of the story, brings home a book of poetry one day and begins to read the poem Dover Beach by Matthew Arnold to his wife and her guests. Many critics think that Bradbury picked this poem because it paralleled life in his book. The poem Dover Beach can be compared to Fahrenheit 451 because both pieces of writing talk about themes of true love, fantasy and allover hopelessness.
One of the ways Fahrenheit 451 can be related to Arnold’s Dover Beach is by connecting the absense of true love in bothVIEW DOCUMENT

These phrases include “lah”, “waliao”, and “makan”. This Singaporean Slang is known as Singlish.

In this way, Coleridge successfully employs the variation of structure to help assert his ideas and give meaning to “Kubla Khan.”

'Dover Beach' by Matthew Arnold, written in 1867, and 'Prayer Before

despite being written nearly on hundred years apart from each other.
This essay will explore the issues and ideas that both poems share, in
addition to drawing attention to some of the key differences.
'Dover Beach' is about the thoughts ofa man on his honeymoon, who
shares his sentiments about the suffering of the world and that fact

Although the two pieces of literature portray vastly different feelings, Wordsworth and Arnold both use nature to elucidate the speaker’s outlook. Interestingly enough, Matthew Arnold was a big fan of William Wordsworth’s work, which is most likely why his poetry is so similar to Wordsworth's. Even though Wordsworth is a poet from the Romantic Period and Arnold one from the Victorian, the two share a simplistic style of writing as well as a unique ability toVIEW DOCUMENT
