Hence, we make no moral demands on them, indeed, we lower ourselves to their moral level with our equivalences. Or do these designations represent merely the arbitrary and subjective assertions of competing individuals and groups? Critical work on the Book of Mormon text has been pursued (cf.

Isaiah 53: 10, in a metaphor, is the only place that speaks of substitution. Needless to say, these won't work because these are run by people that want to gain access to your account or make you pay money without receiving the object paid for. It draws inspiration from literary theories, and these can be nebulous or plainly wrong. Moojan Momen writes: "Even in Buddhism, where Buddha himself gave permission for the setting up of an order of nuns, the Buddhist scriptures represent him as having been very reluctant to do so [...three times] saying, 'If women go forth under the rule of the Dharma, this Dharma will not be long-enduring.' He said that it would be like a blight descending upon a field of sugar cane.

Every biblical writing arose in a particular historical setting or perhaps even developed over time in one or more historical settings. Charles Talbert, in a recent volume What is a Gospel?, has demonstrated�� that in Jesus' era philosophers, kings, and other benefactors were often glorified in terms of ancient legend. Further, the terms bne 'elim and bne 'elohim ("sons of the gods") likewise refer to these same beings. Greenberg, C. “Towards a Newer Laocoon.” 1940.

It all depends on the pause - the natural pause, the natural lingering of the voice according to the feeling - it is the hidden emotional pattern that makes poetry, not the obvious form", D H Lawrence, letter to Edward Marsh "Forms are unlike those sent by the IR, they are not to be filled in" - Alan Rawsthorne "Form is regarded not as a neat mould to be filled, but rather as a sieve to catch certain kinds of material", Theodore Roethke, in "A Poet's Guide to Writing Poetry", Mary Kinzie, p.345 "form isn't a container (of content) but rather a rule for generating a possible 'next move'", Foreman, "How to write a play", p.229 "It has been suggested that free verse is inferior to metrical verse because it provides nothing against which to make variations. [Louis] Simpson's ear is so good that some of his poems suggest ... that free verse can be rewardingly varied by the occasional use of meter" - "Compulsory Figures", Henry Taylor, Louisiana State Univ Press, 1992, p.46 "Meter is perceived in the actual stress-contour, or the line is perceived as unmetrical, or the perceiver doesn't perceive meter at all", p.262 "The governing principle of much Persian poetry is circular rather than linear; rather than a logically sequential progression, a poem is seen as a collection of stanzas interlinked by symbol and image - the links being patterns of likeness and unlikeness, of repetition and variation - which 'hover', as it were, around an unspoken centre", Glyn Pursglove, Acumen 25, p.9 "As stress-languages, English and German allow for great flexibility in the formation of lines; the French alexandrine however is based on syllable count, and so effective versification becomes a matter of observing certain norms: the caesura dividing the two hemistichs, the avoidance of hiatus, the alternation of masculine and feminine rhymes, and so on", Marjorie Perloff, "Lucent and inescapable rhythms: metrical 'choice' and historical formation" "Aristotelian logic, the reigning mode until the time of Coleridge and Hegel, analyzes the forms of coherence found in completed acts of thought.

Scrip., 1906), Murillo, Billot; also Professor Hoberg and Abbé Mangenot (L'Authenticité du Pentateuque, 1907). Shakespeare wished to exhibit a more sublime picture--an ambitious but noble hero, yielding to a deep-laid hellish temptation, and in whom all the crimes to which, in order to secure the fruits of his first crime, he is impelled by necessity, cannot altogether eradicate the stamp of native heroism. As Lee Patterson states, "Even scholars who are dealing with chronologically and geographically distant materials are in fact examining a cultural matrix within which they themselves stand, and the understandings at which they arrive are influenced not simply by contemporary interests but by the shaping past that they are engaged in recovering" (259).
