Sherman Alexie writes the story “Indian Education” using a deadpan tone to build and connect the years of the narrator 's life together in an ironic way. Alexie is able to utilize irony through the use of separate, short sections within the story. The rapid presentation of events, simple thoughts, and poetic points made within the story enable the reader to make quick connections about the narrator’s life to draw more complex realizations. The art that Alexie uses to write this very short story is poetic in nature through the meaning and structure of his writing. By the fact that the reader can draw deeper conclusions about the narrator 's life from Alexie’s writing is evident that his writing is poetic.

In this essay I will be analyzing the poet Julio Noboa Polanco with his poem “identity”, how different he is to other poets, and lastly how he used his poetic elements with his poem. Though, Julio only made one poem, but with that one poem, it shows so many about his writing and literature skills. From reading all these poet’s work, it was very hard to choose which one to analyze. But for some reason Julio Noboa Polanco stood out more. In his poem “Identity” talks about
“Poetry is when emotion has found its thought and the thought has found words.” (Robert Frost). Robert Frost wrote his poems with emotion and with a connection to his personal life.

In ‘On My Songs’ by Wilfred Owen, his ideas about poetry and its importance are voiced throughout the duration of the poem. He does this by using various techniques like metaphors, diction, and personification amongst others. One of the main ideas we can gather from this poem is that he believes that poetry is a form of release. It begins with: ‘Though unseen Poets, many and many a time/ Have answered me as if they knew my woe/…fashioned so their rime…easing the flow/ Of my dumb tears’. In this quote, Owen seems to be paying homage to all the romantic poets (like Keats and Shelly) whose poetry has been able to soothe him and has even often resounded deeply with his situation or with the problems he was going through.

Keating, however, has a unique approach to education not seen anywhere at Welton. Teaching to his students (carpe diem) self-expression and self-thought, and not Welton’s standard hard single-mindedness and conformity.

The society was a place for Keating and his societal partners to talk and read about poetry to
Shakespeare outline: Thesis: The Sonnets hold a strange space in the Shakespeare works of literacy, for they are studied as often by literary historians searching for biographical clues to who the author was and whom he loved, as they are by readers finding solace and stimulation in his poetry. However as much as we try and read the poems as poems – at times flirtatious, at times romantic or feverishly passionate, often cynical, sometimes bitter and frequently mournful – lurking behind our readings are 400 years of rumour and speculation about Shakespeare’s sexuality and the identity of his addressees. Perhaps that is inevitable for a collection written in the first person, as the temptation to merge the narrator’s ‘I’ with the poet’s own
