This poem takes a rather interesting twist, while not being High Minne is certainly has its few little quirks that separates it from that genre of love song/poetry that other’s have exhibited. Still it does seem to keep true to some other key components of a High Minne piece. The unattainable lady for instance is a driving theme in this piece by Walther von der Vogehueide. Though it’s not mention in the first stanza it’s becomes quite clear that our speaker is in love with a woman who is held far above his head, only in this case it seems to be him that has put her there rather than her being naturally unattainable. Which would mean that she might not be the “lady” we’re accustomed to in classic high minne pieces and she could indeed be a common woman that tends to the manor but has been able to capture this minstrel or knight’s heart. Though we are uncertain of what roll our speaker takes, though service is mentioned in the last verse. Along with the unattainable woman we have an egregious amount of suffering, which we the reader are made clear of in the very first verse, “I shall sing and make up words and do what they desire; then they must lament my grief.” The first verse is a peculiar one in of itself as it almost seems like there’s a lack of modesty in our speaker as he almost seems to be bragging about being dragged by into songwriting and singing, though he needs to do so in order to eat as he’s not an active knight. But pushing past that it seems as that in his own drive to make a certain woman his lover he boosted her up to such a high place that not even he can reach her and for that he suffers. He can’t even get her to look at him so much as talk to her and yet he continues to sing and boost her esteem even further. The suffering is a very strong theme and it’s rather clear that it could be so easily broken should she return some kind of affection. He makes it sound like it’s almost physical torment that he’s going through just from being in love. Of course there’s little to absolutely no description of our fair lady only that she herself is someone much higher that he and is essentially holding his life in her hands and in another sense her own fate depending on what she does with his heart. “if she frees me from this distress, her life receives the glory of my life; if I perish, she is dead.” Which could only mean if she makes him suffer to a point where he either grows tired of her and abandons his ways that she herself would soon be in that same position or should he somehow managed to die from a broken heart that she too would somehow suffer a similar fate. The stanza before it stated, “Lord what curses she’d endure, were I know to stop my song! All those who praise her now, I know they’ll rebuke her then--against my will.” That however brings up a new sort of topic,…
growing process and community issues. Every single one of these disadvantages can affect kids deeply that any advantage will not be able overcome.
First of all, school age kids need their family’s care, love, and education more than living under a high expectation environment. They are at the age of defining themselves and realizing who they are or what they have to do for their future. According to the “Shenzhen Daily” newspaper, thirty percent and above of Chinese students who study abroad are…

the alumni of Monroe County High School.
Graduation day was the end of one life, and the beginning of a new life with different problems, worries, and joys. The days were finally over that we dreaded the most, but also, loved. The exams were over for some us, and for others, we would go on to college and continue our education. Graduation day for me was a memorable one. My family rocked the auditorium with thundering applauses, and the delightfulness of no more high school was the ultimate reward…
Howard, but he, at the time, was having health issues of his own and he would have ruined my FT% (Free Throw Percentage) on his own. So, I though the safer pick would be Bynum, who was coming off the best season of his career in which he averaged highs of 18.7 PPG (points per game) and 11.8 RPG (rebounds per game), while also maintaining a mediocre 69.2% FT% and an average 1.9 BPG (blocks per game). Unlike previous seasons, he missed only 6 games, playing 60 of the 66 games in a shortened season…

modern technology, such as the Ipad, replace or supplement all books in high school?
Modern technology such as Ipads must replace all books in Woburn Memorial High School. There are many reasons that textbooks are an outdated model in the 21st century. Ipads are much more portable, create less paper waste, and are a more economical way to update materials.
Normally, a book weighs 5 pounds, are not too bad to carry. At Woburn High, carrying one or two textbooks is very vexatious because of the complexity…

Mosinee High School
Since I have been in high school for four years now, I have learned many things about life, education, and my future. During my time here at Mosinee High I have been involved in everything I wanted to be in. This has given me a great high school experience. I also believe working has given me as much of an experience as any sport or club I was in did. I have been working since I was 14 and have learned many real life skills that…
Hypertension- High Blood Pressure
What is high blood pressure?
Blood pressure measures how strongly blood presses against the walls of your arteries (large blood vessels) as it is pumped around your body by your heart. If this pressure is too high it puts a strain on your arteries and your heart, which makes it more likely that you will suffer a heart attack, a stroke or kidney disease.
Blood pressure is measured in millimetres of mercury (mmHg) and it is recorded as two figures:
