Reading the poem entitled Hymn to Beauty by Baudelaire I picked up on some familiar characteristics that I myself find in some of my random writings I do in my spare time I often think of a simple subject to focus my thoughts on sometimes these subjects being complex but often I find at the end of my writings they have begun with no specific subject but something brings it all together in the end and many times they can be boiled down to one specific word or idead Baudelaire chose to write about beauty Now when I read this poem I didnt move on to read the next one because I think that poetry needs to be analyzed deeply without outside distraction In this case I figured that reading on to the next poem would pollute my mind with the ideas and emotions that the writer Arthur Rimbaud conveyed through his poem By reading through both poems from the initial standpoint I think that myself as well and anybody else would in a sense combine the emotions and the meanings behind the writings To me any poetry or song lyric needs to be read and studied alone in order to find out what the emotional state the writer was in and the overlying message the writer was attempting to portray Maybe I am wrong by doing this for this class assignment but I am sure that my approach would be accepted by the writers of both of these literary works Hymn to Beauty Obviously this piece is about Beauty But why does this writer want to speak of beauty He questions beauty and I like it To me personally I believe beauty is a learned thing It differentiates between personalities What is one mans junk is another mans treasure He personifies beauty as if it were a person standing before him I believe through this work he is questioning the positive aspects
