The Dark Lady— Mysterious World of Shakespeare’s Sonnets

"My mistress' eyes are nothing like the sun;
Coral is far more red than her lips' red."

William Shakespeare (1564 - 1616)
English poet and playwright.
Sonnet 130

In the whole mysterious world of Shakespeare’s sonnets, the most enigmatic personality to emerge is the Dark Lady raising ever-increasing curiosity among the readers of all times and climes. The few of the sonnets describe the devotion of a person, often identified as Shakespeare himself, to a young man whose beauty and virtue he praises and to a mysterious and faithless Dark Lady with whom the poet is infatuated. Many learned attempts to identify her with this or that feminine personality of the time have met with equally strong counter-claims making confusion worse confounded. 

Starting Point of Learning English as Second Language in the Classroom Situation

The early start English as Second Language prepares children for school both academically and socially in English atmosphere. It teaches children the alphabet so they will be ready to learn to read and write, and it teaches them fun of languages so they can learn the hidden joys in rhyming. The teachers at the primary stage while teaching English as Second Language read to children whose parents may not have the time or the ability to read to them. Children and teachers in the classroom often sing together, both to learn music and to encourage group participation by shy children. Children learn coordination through indoor and outdoor play.

T. S. Eliot's The Hollow Men : Cyclic Events in Human History both in Tautology and Monologue

"We are the hollow men
We are the stuffed men
Leaning together
Headpiece filled with straw. Alas!"

T. S. Eliot (1888 - 1965)
U.S.-born British poet and playwright.
The Hollow Men
In The Hollow Men T. S. Eliot explores what appear to be cyclic events in human history both in tautology and monologue. The story of everyman parallels the modern men of sanctimonious selfish ends of materialism. We are empowered by a powerful magical incantation of spiritual bankruptcy. The importance of these cyclic events is that they represent the repeated clashes between the powers of good and evil that seems to be occurring on an escalating scale over time. Farther, The Hollow Men presents nihilism, designation applied to various radical philosophies, usually by their opponents, the implication being that adherents of these philosophies reject all positive values and believe in nothing.
