In the poem, Orange, by Gary Soto has put great effect to the poem by adding happiness and pride the write experiences. This poem is all about love and that warm gooey feeling that you have for someone when the relationship is just starting to floum. Throughout the poem he uses descriptive words in order to point out the world around him and his emotions towards it. Soto gets there by contrasting. We know this by contrasting the end of the poem when he feels like he made a fire on his first day even though that day, the climate was very dark and yucky.
If I had more time to revise my essays I would look back to my arguments and check to see if the sources that I used are valid and relatable to my sentence. Sometimes I get writer’s block and so I just whatever comes to my mind, even if it does not make sense. This
Jessica Christy Klayton Kendall English 121 7 September 2015 A Better Understanding In the essay ‘Disliking Books” Gerald Graff claims that he has an “advantage teaching literature”.

Her use of imagery paints a picture for the readers which ultimately helps to make learning the writing process easier. For example, when she says “the critics would be sitting on my shoulders, commenting like cartoon characters”, this creates a humorous and memorable image of shoulder sized critics (Lamott 469). This step in the process is unusual from what other authors say, yet it’s interesting which engages the reader. Lamott also uses similes and metaphors throughout the essay to explain what it is like for most struggling writers. She states “we all often feel like we are pulling teeth” when it comes to constructing and composing a piece of work (Lamott 468).
This proves that Jack is confident about poetry because he is being inspired by other poetics and he is now starting to write his own poems.

However, Gail Hemmeter's ""How to Read Poetry" does a better job. This is because he gives a list of things for the readers to think about when reading a poem. This clearly explains that Gail Hemmeter's understanding of poetry is that to understand poetry there a process of things that you have to do. "Introduction to Poetry" by Billy Collins doesn't clearly show his viewpoint on the understanding of poetry because it's a confusing poem trying to explain confusing poems. So overall "How to Read Poetry" by Gail Hemmeter better conveys his viewpoint on the understanding of
He also points out in his writing that we would not know what good is if we don’t experience bad. Those are some examples of how Dunbar writes most of his poetry on serious
Hughes openly declared Walt Whitman as one of his favorite authors, so naturally he incorporated that into his writing. In “I, Too” he makes the connection in the first line with “I, Too, Sing America”. This is a direct reference to Walt Whitman’s poem “I Hear America Singing”. Whitman’s poem describes what America looks like by the way that Americans works, and this ultimately makes America unlike anywhere else. The descriptions of the different people forces a sense of pride into those who read the words, but when one reads “I, too” the emotion grows.
He wrote in a variety of styles, including surrealist poems, historical epics, overtly political manifestos, a prose autobiography, and passionate love poems such this chosen poem. He often wrote in green ink, which was his personal symbol for desire and hope. This is one of the greatest poem I’ve ever came across. Pablo really expressed his love and feelings towards his no longer loved one.
By reading the poem I was able to understand the time period better and actually view the events like they were actually occurring right now. However, as a reader and a historian I could not necessarily rely on the poems because the poets may have faced great obstacles when writing which may have effected there writing. This primary source allowed me to learn a lot, in which I am able to learn the values of primary sources and how I should use it while researching and how I should avoid it during other research that may seem
The piece in my portfolio that I am most proud of is my Found Poem. I am really proud of my Found Poem because I put a lot of effort towards it.

Robinson seemed to be a poet to entertain the masses. He was a good poet I have to assume considering Theodore Roosevelt liked him enough to give him a job and encourage him to still write poetry. His poems seemed a little out there to me I had to read them at least twice to make sure I read the poem right the first time. I am curious to where he came about with his poem ideas because he didn’t have a bad life as far as I could tell compared to some of the other morbid seeming poets who had a rough life to draw from. The poem “Richard Cory” was easy to understand, but the first read through I did I thought it was a robot not a person with imagery to seem like one.
The Importance of Action John Ruskin was a famous artist and critic who composed multiple works including The Crown of Wild Olive in which the quote, “What we think, or what we know, or what we believe is, in the end of little consequence. The only consequence is what we do,” is found. Ruskin is saying that thoughts, knowledge, or beliefs do not have very much significance and only action can lead to tangible results. The ideas in this statement have been shown to be correct throughout literature and history in To Kill a Mockingbird, “The Gettysburg Address,” and “Letter from Birmingham Jail.”
Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, you are here because one person in this courtroom decided to take law into her own hands. The defendant, Mrs. Dominique Stephens, murdered the man that she vowed to love. This sole act by the defendant is violation of all morals and her husband’s right to live. Afterwards, she even felt guilty about this violation of justice and called the cops on herself, and she later signed a written statement stating that she is guilty of the murder of Mr. Donovan Stephens. Then the defendant later recanted this statement and said that she only killed Mr. Stephens in self defense.
