U2ologists and lyrical specialists reply by midnight!

NEEDED FOR A TERM PAPER:

An example of the most beautiful, poetic, brilliant, whatever lyric that the band has ever done; why you think it's beautiful/brilliant/whatever/; and a comparison to/commentary on a similar work in the canon of Western literature.

Convince me! If I use your words/ideas, you will be credited properly.

My cousin wrote a paper comparing The Scarlet Letter to Running to Stand Still, I still don't know how, but he got an A+.

Go get Into the Heart. You'll get alot of ideas of U2's lyrics and how they relate or were stolen from from the canon of Western literature.

Is Dante's Inferno considered Western literature? If not, use Heart of Darkness which is based on Dante's Inferno. The Inferno is referenced in Wild Horses "oh the deeper I spin, oh the hunter will sin for your ivory skin, took a drive in the dirty rain, to a place where the wind calls your name, etc. etc." actually, that is pretty close to both the Inferno and H of D. Try that.

Yeah, I know, but I didn't really plan on putting this in the paper until today...it's not even really a term paper, more like a final exam essay or something.

Running to Stand Still stands alone. No Scarlet Letter references, though. Thanks, all.
