Example of a Free-verse poem
"After the Sea-Ship" by Walt Whitman:
After the Sea-Ship-after the whistling winds;-
After the white-gray sails, taut to their spars and ropes,-
Below, a myriad, myriad waves, hastening, lifting up their necks,-
Tending in ceaseless flow toward the track of the ship:-
Waves of the ocean, bubbling and gurgling, blithely prying,-
Waves, undulating waves-liquid, uneven, emulous waves,-
Toward that whirling current, laughing and buoyant, with curves,-
Where the great Vessel, sailing and tacking, displaced the surface;-
Example of a Limerick poem
"The old man" by Edward Lear:
There was an Old Man with a beard-
Who said, "It is just as I feared!-
Two Owls and a Hen,-
Four Larks and a Wren,-
Have all built their nests in my beard!"-
Example of a Narrative poem
"The Raven" by Edgar Allan Poe:
Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered, weak and weary,-
Over many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten lore—
While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping,-
As of some one gently rapping, rapping at my chamber door.-

HtVIII: Theme of Manipulation
At the beginning of the play, the King only values advice from Wolsey. Wolsey has been flattering Henry so that Henry acts in a way that will only benefit Wolsey. Different Nobles directly accuse Wolsey of manipulating Henry.
HtVIII: Theme of Women and Feminism
Only the female characters are portrayed as being good and virtuous (possibly a bias since Shakespeare's patron was Queen Elizabeth). The men talk about having principles, but eventually fail at it.
HtVIII: Theme of Having Principles
Many of the characters talk about the importance of having principles. The characters that oppose Wolsey try and show they are not being persuaded by him by having strong principles. However, since most of them are trying to achieve social status, they fail in other areas anyway and do not turn out to be as principled as they claim
From the very beginning, Buckingham sees right through Wolsey and knows he is not upstanding. Wolsey's doesn't want it to get back to the king, so he arranges to have Buckingham executed.
Katherine is stubborn and righteous and from the outset speaks out against Wolsey and his influence. When the king falls in love with Anne Bullen and wants to divorce Katherine on the grounds their marriage was not lawful in the first place, Katherine pleads her case before the court with passion and accuses Wolsey of exactly what he will repent of later in the play
At the beginning of the play, Cardinal Wolsey is King Henry's right-hand man. We learn from Buckingham that he also has a habit of spending too much of the king's money. He dislikes Queen Katherine because she questions his decisions. He is a master at manipulation. He writes to the Pope to keep Henry from marrying Anne Bullen. Henry finds the secret stash of letters and strips Wolsey of his title.
An attendant to the queen, who catches the eye of the king at a banquet. Anne is an intelligent, sympathetic young woman who expresses pity for Queen Katherine's plight, even though she becomes Henry VIII's next wife in Katherine's place
even though Elizabeth is a mere infant in the play, she grows up to be none other than Queen Elizabeth I. Elizabeth was on the throne when Shakespeare first began writing plays. Even though Henry VIII was written after she died, it was still important to give his former queen major props.
