Stanza 26 was seventeen syllables. There is not a consistent poetic foot. Scansion was very difficult when it came to this particular writing piece. The style of how the poem was written tells a lot about the diction of the poet. This unique rhythm and meter of poem makes this poet different from others.
In “O Captain! My Captain!”, the rhyme scheme is, “AABBCDEDFFBBGDHDIIAA”. On the other hand, in “Elegy for J.F.K.”, there no rhyme scheme. Although they have completely different rhyme schemes, neither poem has perfect rhyme. This is because if the poems had perfect rhyme it would sound like a song.
What one person may view as Sappho’s intentions and general reflections on cultural values may be different that another persons. There is no way of knowing for sure what the meaning is because it was written so long ago and there are limited resources available to help interpret it. Additionally, small details pertaining to this primary source can significantly change its meaning. The article mentions how a simple “us” in a lyric instead of “me”, can change the entire interpretation, as it changes the speaker. (Mendelsohn 75) Thus, the issue of translating is important concerning the interpretation of this poem.
Paine used “Logos” technique to persuade the colonists to help him, support him for peace and freedom. “If there must be trouble, let it be my day, that my child may have peace”(Paine 109). This quote shows that it supports the soldiers were to fight for their children, so they will also be able to experience peace. “Logos” was clearly effective to the quote, mainly because it remains the children to get peace anyway possible. Due to more reasons why it persuades the colonists to give away their peace and freedom.
It is written in free style, so there is no real structure or rhyme scheme. This lack of structure manages to make this odd poem even more chaotic because you never know what the next line, or stanza, will bring, either in structure or in meaning. One device that this poem does invoke is the repetition of certain sounds, specifically the “oo” sound. The first two lines alone, “You do not do, you do not do anymore black shoe,” (705) show this device magnificently. In just those lines the “oo” sound is repeated seven times, and while that doesn’t stand true for every set of two lines, that specific sound is used exponentially more often than any other sound within the poem.
“Kissing” by Fleur Adcock deals with the transitions in a relationship. There isn’t any noticeable rhyme scheme or meter to the poem; the syllable count is almost regular. Since the poem only has two stanzas - both focusing on a relationship very different from each other in terms of time - there is a strong contrast between the modern and the traditional relationships. To expand on this further, the events seem to have been chronologically arranged as things would progress in a relationship. Figurative techniques such as enjambment has been used throughout the poem to refer to the passage of time.
The Aesthetic Movement, as exemplified by “The Indian to His Love,” by W. B. Yeats, seems lifeless and insipid when compared to his “The Hosting of the Sidhe.” The images of the two poems are so completely different that they almost demand a different set of rules dealing with their creation. It would be virtually impossible for Yeats to deal effectively with the subject matter of “The Hosting of the Sidhe" in the same manner as “The Indian to His Love” because he is viewing the world from a different perspective for each poem. There is little relationship between the characters of “The Indian to His Love” and those of “The Hosting of the Sidhe.” In the former, Yeats deals exclusively with mortals, idealized perhaps, but nonetheless mortals who must deal with the world as mortals: “Here we will moor our lovely ship/ And wander ever with woven hands," and. "How we alone of mortals are." These characters are not only mortals but are anonymous in that they have no personal identities, and there is no representation of them as individuals.
The book “The Odyssey” has many inspiring moment in the book. The most inspiring Character is Odysseus. I think he is inspiring because he can be very inspiring to people that are having hard times in their life. If Odysseus can be very inspiring to kid in the world today. I think that he is very inspiring because he will not stop and will push you to finish.
There were many pieces that the poem did not follow, but that was expected. A writing piece will never hit every single aspect of a layout of how that story/poem should be. They mostly hit the big, main points as Beowulf did. Beowulf did follow how a Hero’s Journey Archetype laid out for the poem, but yes, it didn’t completely follow the outline that was given to the
"Live life to the fullest, and focus on the positive." This quote by Matt Cameron (brainyquote) is telling us to live life freely and as best as we can. Life can be tough at times, but it's all on how you perceive your own life. Instead of going through the motions and letting life guide you, take life as a positive and live it to the fullest. In Elie Wiesel's (2006) book Night and the movie "Life is Beautiful" (2000), there are many different views and outlooks on life, but it's how you handle them that make it so much richer.
