    I have chosen these two cycles to analyse because they represent the two side of one story, the masculine and feminine points of views of love. These two song cycles were composed shortly after one another. Frauenliebe und Leben was described by Gerhard Kaiser as: Her daughters of citizenry could find their womanly role in life sketched out for them, from first love, through wedding, motherhood and widowhood, to old age and death. Like Gretchen’s song at the spinning wheel, these poems too involve

    The Cycle of Life in Walt Whitman's Song of Myself In stanza six of the poem "Song of Myself", by Walt Whitman, he poses the question "What is the grass?" I believe that grass is a metaphor for the cycle of life. Throughout the poem Whitman points out images that grass could represent. All of these images stem from the life and death that we come to expect in our lifetime. During your life you will experience death, it at times surrounds you, but if you look past the grief and look

    In the following book, the author analyzes the different aspects of the Winterreise composition to figure out the climax point of the cycle. Due to the chromatic nature of this piece the position of the climax is not clear, rather it is challenging and people interpret it in different ways. The author agrees the position of the climax to be present in the last song ‘Der Wegweiser’ where the wanderer (character portrayed in the piece) reaches death. While other critiques suggest that it climaxes in

    the song to a more self-controlled and resigned tone. A common idea of Schubert’s lied and poetry of Schubert’s time was resignation to whatever troubles were about. A return to the first stanza of poetry suggests that the singer as resigned to his or her fate of lost love. “Pause” by Schubert contains similar aspects to “Die Liebe hat gelogen,” but it also contains distinct differences. One such difference is in the composition setting of “Pause.” This song is part of a greater song cycle Die

    Young Tuck, I know that you may miss me (of course), so I have left you this letter. As you may have already noticed, I have left many packs of smarties throughout the house, and have instructed Pa to leave more. Hopefully you learn how to fold clothes/wash dishes, or at least learn how to hide in your room until somebody else does it like you usually do. Don’t let cat pee on my bed too much, but you can let her sleep in my room so long as you’re sleeping in there as well (top or bottom bunk)

    The final poem could be considered an epilogue to the cycle. It gives a short summary of the couple’s time together and states the irrevocable truth that it has come to an end. The decay of autumn that the speaker feared in the previous poem has progressed, and the once beautiful plants turn now against him and chase him out of the disintegrating garden. The fifteenth song is the longest of the cycle and starts with a piano introduction that similarly to the poem reminisces on past events and expresses

    this matter in countless songs. For example, a pop single by The Crystals "He Hit Me (And It Felt Like A Kiss)" in (1962) uses amusing vocals with corroding strings and sorrowful drums to enhance this song and shed light on the issue of domestic violence, which describes that eventually individuals in our society become prone to the horrific phenomenon. Another example, is the blues song “Outside Of That” from the album Mama’s got the blues (1923) by Bessie Smith. This song also exemplifies how love

    This song reflects a dilemma between two choices where both sides have equal consequences. The song is about the progression of a relationship where they are so desperately in love with each other, but just can't seem to get along and have doubts whether it's really meant to be. The song is emotively effective because it touches on a very relatable subject of not knowing how to choose between two options and makes you think about what people will put themselves through to try and make something work
