But when thinking about poems and what they are supposed to mean, it seems acceptable to take it into your own hands. Just like Cummings, other poets use unconventional punctuation and capitalization to get their meaning across. While there are critics that say it isn’t right, the importance of the poem is truly the meaning and how someone interprets it. For example, when I read poems, I use the capitalization and punctuation as a way to look at what the words mean in the stanzas. Taking an example from Cummings work, he occasionally doesn’t capitalize the letter “I” because he wants us to focus on why he did that.
Even though he only wrote “Identity” this poem shows so many from just reading this. When reading this poem automatically could tell how much feeling was behind this, not knowing what he has gone through. He used a situation that was all around and such a huge issue that is important to the society today. Also using an issue and putting it into a totally different story, but with the same meaning. For example, in his poem, it states “I'd rather smell of musty, green stench than of sweet, fragrant lilac.
The question being asked is if Nick Carraway an honest narrator. This question is being asked due to mixed emotions of this particular narrator. At times it feels like Nick is holding back his honest opinion because he doesn 't want to hurt anyone or just because Nick doesn 't want to say the harsh truth. This affects the story at times such as Nick knowing about Tom 's mistress and never telling Daisy about her. Which in the end resulted in a very unfitting demise for Gatsby and Myrtle.
Humbert Humbert and his Lolita, Dolores Haze, are incomparable characters that toy with the reader’s emotions and are the basis of this story. While questioning the author’s intention in creating such a wretched tale, I discovered that Vladimir Nabokov, himself states that the novel has no intended moral, it was just something he had to get off his chest. And that is perhaps the best evaluation I can offer, one should read Lolita not for is sexual and emotional rawness, the beautiful prose, or a good and honest cry, but because it is book without an intended moral. Books like these have no gray zone, no middle ground, the reader is forced to love it or hate

Just as Shakespeare did, she uses a comparison to a relatable subject. She used her literature as her child, but unlike Shakespeare, she does not believe that her subject is perfect. Charlotte referred from the beginning of the piece to the work being “ill-formed” meaning full of grammatical mistakes and how the work no matter how much she tried to mend it she still did not see it as perfect. Both poets also hold a very close relationship to the subject of the poem. The attachments are alike in the matter that the author uses common metaphors.
The Underlying Motives of Brutus Understanding the human psyche is no easy feat. Often times, people do not even fully understand their own motives. This seems to be the case for Brutus in Shakespeare’s Tragedy, Julius Caesar. Brutus does truly believe that his actions are what is right for Rome; he truly thinks he has pure intentions. However, there are times when Brutus disregards what is noble in pursuit of his own glory.
The bits and pieces of rhyme become much more apparent when the poem is read aloud. Occasionally we’ll get a couple of lines of blank verse, which have no rhyme but a regular meter, usually iambic pentameter, where an unstressed syllable is followed by an accent. Eliot uses a lot of rhyming couplets. Eliot is making fun of Prufrock by using this old-fashioned form. The rhyming couplets are sometimes called "heroic" couplets, but our title character is anything but heroic.
Allusions play a very important role in enhancing the meaning in the poem The love Song of Alfred J. Prufrock by T.S Eliot. They undoubtedly help the reader understand certain themes and ideas that are present throughout the poem. The poem is about a middle-aged man named Prufrock that is very insecure and lives a very dull uneventful life. He is very educated and intelligent but he cannot work up the courage to approach a woman that he is romantically interested in. He constantly imagines what other people would say to him about his many shortcoming and insecurities.
This poem differs from your traditional love poem because the speaker challenges his feelings. He is essentially questioning love’s worth because of the other emotions it brings with it. The used literary devices show how the author believes love is a complex emotion. The poem was written in 2011, but it constantly refers to the past by using allusion. This can be symbolic of how the speaker most likely
