Your anathemas against poetry itself excited me to a sacred rage. I had the greatest possible desire to break a lance with you Editorial introductions[ edit ] Shelley sought to show that poets make morality and establish the legal norms in a civil society thus creating the groundwork for the other branches in a community. Hutchins and Mortimer J.
Poets introduce and maintain morality. The mores so created are codified into laws. The social function or utility of poets is that they create and maintain the norms and mores of a society.
Shelley was mainly concerned to explain the moral and thus the social function of poetry. In doing so, he produced one of the most penetrating general discussions on poetry that we have. InWilliam Stigant, a poet, essayist, and translator, wrote in his essay "Sir Philip Sidney"  that Shelley's "beautifully written Defence of Poetry" is a work which "analyses the very inner essence of poetry and the reason of its existence, — its development from, and operation on, the mind of man".
Shelley writes in Defence that while "ethical science arranges the elements which poetry has created," and leads to a moral civil life, poetry acts in a way that "awakens and enlarges the mind itself by rendering it the receptacle of a thousand unapprehended combinations of thought".
In A Defence of Poetry, Shelley argued that the invention of language reveals a human impulse to reproduce the rhythmic and ordered, so that harmony and unity are delighted in wherever they are found and incorporated, instinctively, into creative activities: Those who possess this faculty "in excess are poets" and their task is to communicate the "pleasure" of their experiences to the community.
Shelley does not claim language is poetry on the grounds that language is the medium of poetry; rather he recognises in the creation of language an adherence to the poetic precepts of order, harmony, unity, and a desire to express delight in the beautiful. Aesthetic admiration of "the true and the beautiful" is provided with an important social aspect which extends beyond communication and precipitates self-awareness.
Poetry and the various modes of art it incorporates are directly involved with the social activities of life.
Shelley nominated unlikely figures such as Plato and Jesus in their excellent use of language to conceive the inconceivable. Shelley's conclusive remark that "poets are the unacknowledged legislators of the world" suggests his awareness of "the profound ambiguity inherent in linguistic means, which he considers at once as an instrument of intellectual freedom and a vehicle for political and social subjugation".
From Sir Philip Sidney to Macaulay. With Introductions and Notes. The one distinction he finds between his character and the others is that Owen does not care what other people think of him. McKidd told TV Guide: There's a really interesting conversation to be had because of those choices: How do you move on? How does that change the dynamic of the relationship? If you can really dive into that -- there's two betrayals, very big ones.
I don't know how they sustain that relationship. I don't know how you come back from that kind of betrayal. Certainly if you're married, the notion of the next step would be to have children and if that's been taken away, I would find it very hard for Owen to stay in that relationship.
Owen's story and connection with fellow character Cristina has been a topic of discussion. McKidd offered this insight on his character's relationship with Cristina: What I read when I read the season premiere, and this is just my take on it, is that it was very much two very analytical people, Owen and Cristina. They're very similar in a way, I think, as people. Two analytical people see each other over a crowded ER room and their eyes meet.

It's almost more complicated, but on a really simplistic level, it's almost a love at first sight scenario that happened on the season premiere. And then, what we're seeing is the road to connect that back, because obviously the season premiere was before he went back to Iraq and this event has happened to him that's changed him. And so, they're trying to get that feeling back because there's obviously something really true and meant to be between these two people.
But it's complicated right now because she's damaged because of what's happened to her, and he is certainly struggling with himself and the people around him and the world in general, and trying to keep himself together after what's happened to him. So, I think, it's exciting to see what happens with these two guys because, in a way, they're the two people you'd least expect to have a love affair, but it's happening to them and they can't stop it. But so far the writing room is handling it beautifully.
They're not banging people over the head with it but exploring it in a sensitive and interesting way.
Directly before the episode involving the affair aired, McKidd said to Entertainment Weekly: I hold out faith in Cristina and Owen, even though they go to the darkest places out of all the couples on the show. It's going to get worse but it's going to get better soon.
Carter of USA Todaydescribes Hunt as "hardcore" and "the antithesis of the other males on the show. Cristina leaves for Zurich with surgical intern Shane Ross, who chooses to leave in order to study under her in Switzerland.
Casting and creation[ edit ] Sandra Oh 's character was not supposed to be of Asian descent. On the creation of Yang, Shonda Rhimes said the character contained "a little bit of [her] personality".
There's something interesting about a person who is that driven, a little bit emotionally disconnected but still a caring, sweet, and smart individual you could be friends with. From the beginning, I've been shaping Cristina around Sandra a little bit.
One of my favorite things to do is take as much of her dialogue out of a scene as possible because she does so much nonverbally. Then I just watch what she manages to do without having a word to say. Oh said her character was "a pert little blonde and the thing is the woman who runs the show, Shonda Rhimes, is a black woman, which makes a big [expletive] difference. It's a changing time on television because five or ten years ago you wouldn't have a major network show where half of the cast were not white.
Online reported in Maythat Oh, as well as all original cast members, had signed on for two more years. I mean, in real life there aren't many of them.

But the ones you encounter are at the very top of their game. You have to have a kind of ascetic personality to survive.

Rhimes commented, "[We see] her struggle to suppress all of her humanity in pursuit of perfection. And in my mind, what we realize is that she is not cold.
Scared that if she lets her emotions out, they will overtake her and she will be hurt. And you can't hate her. Because it's so incredibly human and understandable. This led to the two being dubbed "the twisted sisters".
At the conclusion of season threethe duo went on a "honeymoon" together, and Rhimes called it her favorite detail of the finale. It has long been her defining characteristic. If it occasionally makes her into a caricature, it has also unquestionably established that she would have an abortion in this circumstance.
As for the abortion in the eighth season, Rhimes commented: And I feel like that is a character who has never really wanted to be a mother. The idea that this woman would have a child that she did not want and resented for ruining her career and resented Owen for making her have [it] would have been hideous.
What I read when I read the season premiere, and this is just my take on it, is that it was very much two very analytical people, Owen and Cristina.

They're very similar in a way, I think, as people. Two analytical people see each other over a crowded ER room and their eyes meet.
We would shoot all our scenes for a day or two straight, and that was extremely challenging because emotionally and physically it becomes really exhausting.
To see someone being pulled apart so intensely, which honestly most everyone goes through in their life in some ways, if you're lucky you're completely pulled apart and then you have to pull yourself together, which hopefully will be the exploration within hopefully the next season. I hold out faith in Cristina and Owen, even though they go to the darkest places out of all the couples on the show.
It's going to get worse but it's going to get better soon. The character was well received by the critics at the time of its inception and as the series went on the reviews became increasingly positive and Cristina went on the become an iconic character not just for Grey's but for television itself.
Viewers could clearly see a softening of the typically hard-edged Cristina, a pleasant change for what had become something of a one-note character. Is it because they're both married now? Whatever, it's the opposite of Blair and Serena's annoyingly fickle frenemy status on Gossip Girland I can't get enough.
Mark Perigard of the Boston Herald considered the friendship to be "the secret core of Grey's". Aisha Harris of Slate called their relation The Best Female Friendship on TV adding that "With those two characters, showrunner Shonda Rhimes and her team of writers created one of the most nuanced and realistic portrayals of female friendship on television. There's nothing fake about them, which is a rarity in how female friends are portrayed on television.
She further went on to call them 'soulmates', "And even though they'd never dare get sappy enough to say it, they're soul mates. List of awards and nominations received by Grey's Anatomy Oh received five straight nominations at the Primetime Emmy Awards from —
