  • Help with Poem allusions! ?

    Out of these two poems, what are three examples of allusions? (can be two from one or one from both) 

    On First Looking Into Chapman’s Homer

    -John Keats

    Much have I travelled in the realms of gold,

    And many goodly states and kingdoms seen;

    Round many western islands have I been

    Which bards in fealty to Apollo hold.

    Oft of one wide expanse had I been told

    That deep-browed Homer ruled as his demesne:

    Yet did I never breathe its pure serene

    Till I heard Chapman speak out loud and bold.

    Then felt I like some watcher of the skies

    When a new planet swims into his ken;

    Or like stout Cortez when with eagle eyes

    He starred at the Pacific—and all his men

    Looked at each other with a wild surmise—

    Silent, upon a peak in Darien.

    The World Is Too Much With Us

           -William Wordsworth

    The world is too much with us; late and soon,

    Getting and spending, we lay waste our powers;

    Little we see in nature that is ours;

    We have given our hearts away, a sordid boon!

    This Sea that bares her bosom to the moon,

    The winds that will be howling at all hours,

    And are up-gathered now like sleeping flowers,

    For this, for everything, we are out of tune;

    It moves us not. –Great God! I’d rather be

    A Pagan suckled in a creed outworn;

    So might I, standing on this pleasant lea,

    Have glimpses that would make me less forlorn;

    Have sight of Proteus rising from the sea;

    Or hear old Triton blow his wreathed horn.

  • The Alchemist Help ASAP! (book) ?

    I finished the book "The Alchemist" by Paulo Coelho but am struggling to pin point certain parts in the book where different religions or beliefs are demonstrated. Could you help me??

    “A priest climbed to the top of a tower and began to chant; everyone in the market fell to their knees, touched their foreheads to the ground, and took up the chant.” That was in the town of Tiger if that helps. Also, a comment was made on this as "A practice of Infidels."

    "But the only God I serve is Allah," The caravan leader is telling this to the people.

    "Holding out a white stone and a black stone that had been embedded at the center of the breastplate. 'They are called Urim and Thummim. The black signifies 'yes' and the white 'no'.'" The man with the stones also called himself a king.

    "a group of Arabs passing by told the boy that it was a place inhabited by genies." What religion or belief are Genies from?

    That's all I got but if you could help me out, that'd be awesome!
