For example, in his poem, it states “I'd rather smell of musty, green stench than of sweet, fragrant lilac. If I could stand alone, strong and free, I'd rather be a tall, ugly weed.” but in other words, this means “I would rather be unattractive and ugly, than pretty. If I could be alone happy and free I’d rather be ugly and unattractive”. Instead of just telling a straight up poem he used other ways to say it, like using flowers and people. Overall Julio’s poems are very different compared to other poet’s work.
The Romantic period’s aims are related with art, not beauty but the expression and feelings which can open wider horizons. In fact, it has been defined in so many different ways. In addition, the right to individual and collective freedom is developed; this is subjective, expressing deeper feelings, most of them dark ones. Some of the characteristics that defined Romantic poetry are glorification of the individual; strong emotion, intuition, and instinct which turned more important than reason and intellect. Besides, there is a special admiration for nature, a sense that the experience of a person is equally important as the religious experience inside the world.
As it stated he uses his story in other words, but still have feelings towards it. To make his poem “Identity” he used so much poetic elements. Using poetic elements makes the poem more emotional and have for feeling towards it. For example, “Let them be as flowers, always watered, fed, guarded, admired, but harnessed to a pot of dirt. I'd rather be a tall, ugly weed, clinging to cliffs, like an eagle wind-wavering above high, jagged rocks.” As it stated looking how there are emotion towards saying “I'd rather be a tall, ugly weed, clinging to cliffs, like an eagle wind-wavering above high, jagged rocks.” Added on, Julio has a good poetic element to his poem because it poetic element is also when a poem has a good imaginary.
The majority of the poem has a very carefree tone about how joyous life is, but it becomes darker when he brings up society and its influence on individuals. Whitman uses this shift in tone to emphasize the positivity of individuals, which is a stark contrast to his tone when he brings up society’s hold on you. Whitman stresses the importance of remaining an individual despite society’s constant pressure to
A scrutinization of “Identity” by Julio Noboa, reveals the powerful subject of freedom, and the dichotomy between the rugged individual vs. society. Based on the title, I’d anticipated that the content revolved around what defines a particular person’s identity. This free verse poem consisting of five stanzas is an extended metaphor, which speaks of two types of people in society: “flowers” and “weeds”. Rather than being a flower trapped in a pot, “Let them be as flowers/but harnessed to a pot of dirt”(Noboa 177), the speaker prefers to be a weed, living an unfettered existence of freedom and wildness. Incorporation of bold imagery successfully invokes the reader’s imagination, “Wind wavering above jagged rocks/to be swayed by breezes” (Noboa
Poems are short meaningful pieces of literature that can be interpreted in multiple ways depending upon the reader at hand. That is what makes a poem unique compared to other literature pieces because in a poem the author tends to use figurative language to fulfill meaning behind their work. One poem “Love is a Sickness Full of Woes” by Samuel Daniel describes the pains of being lovesick. Love can either benefit us if nurtured and cared for, but if not tended to then let loose can ultimately hurt us. As to another poem “American Solitude” by Grace Schulman describes a life of solitude being most warming to the soul to ward off loneliness.
The Themes in these authors writings are also different. Theme of Walt Whitman is very focused of celebration and unity of life, whereas Emily’s are the opposite with themes including: death, the end of life, sadness, despair, depression. Walt’s writing, for example in “Leaves of Grass” Whitman writes, “I loafe and invite my soul,/an and loafe at my ease observing a spear of summer grass”(whitman).Readers can easily sense a theme of life, joy and nature in his writing. In contrast
Theme is the message about life or human nature that is “the focus” in the story that the writer tells ( Glossary of Literary Terms 3). A theme in this story would be “Love and Blindness”. This falls under the theme category because it is saying love itself changes the way you are as a person but it also has its blindness. The “blindness” is not so much of not being able to see them physically but how they truly are as a person. A person can be very depressing, arrogant, or even abusive but the person in love will see past it hence the term blind.
To be Affected or Reflected - that is the Natural Difference In "Damon the Mower" Andrew Marvell portrays an imaginary world of his own. He creates this personal world with the use of his personal experience as a mower that spends much of his time being very close to Nature. In addition, with the use of delicate imagery, and the cryptic conceits, Marvell shows in this poem his general affinity to the work of John Donne. Even though, in "Damon the Mower" Marvell 's ingenuity of imagery and conceits can be quite tedious, from the reader 's view, as Harold Bloom cites Alice Meynell in his book Bloom 's Classic Critical Views: John Milton and the Metaphysical Poets. On the other hand, in "Twickenham Garden", Donne also succeeds to portray a
Throughout the story, it is made abundantly clear that Paul maintains, “a shuddering repulsion for the flavorless, colourless mass of every-day existence,” and holds a particular interest for, “cool things and soft lights and fresh flowers,” (Paul’s Case, 474). Paul wants to distance himself from the drab normalcy of the culture he is surrounded by, and instead, find solace in natural beauty--like that of flowers. The symbolic nature of Paul’s admiration for flowers is distributed all throughout the story, from the opening paragraph to the tragic
