Wallace Stevens a well-known American poet once said, “In poetry, you must love the words, the ideas and the images and rhythms with all your capacity to love anything at all.” In these lines, Stevens beautifully reveals that poetry is all about enjoying each line and each and every part of the poem as it would give you satisfaction and love to poetry as never before. Similarly, Stevens wrote a magnificent piece of work “Sunday Morning”, with various pieces of literary devices to enhance his poetry making it descriptive and enjoyable to read. For example, by the use of techniques such as symbolism, theme, imagery, and tone “Sunday Morning” displays the clash that the speaker endures as she questions the Christian religion and her discovery of love for nature. It is evident throughout the poem that the women has difficulty finding happiness in religion and enjoys nature finding it to be inspiring unlike religion that can be destructive and disappointing. Stevens’s use of tone and structure of the poem allowed the readers to better comprehend what the poem was really conveying.
He added a book on the Yoga of Savitri, making twelve books and forty-nine cantos in all and completing Parts Two and Three. Poetry I take to be the measured reflection of emotion… it is the instinctive and preordained commingling or rather indivisible existence of great matter with great verse producing high emotions or beautiful matter with beautiful words producing soft emotions that gives us genuine poetry. Poetry like everything else in man germinates. This antiphon advancement, phylogenesis and change of concepts posit some difficulty for the readers to form a defined idea about Sri Aurobindo’s views, as may not easily be gained even from Wordsworth, Shelley and Eliot’s writings. If asked for a resolution of poetry, the researcher cannot come up with one single resolution.
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 much about his writing and literature skills. From reading all these poet’s work, it was very difficult to choose which one to analyze. But for some
The first time reading through a poem, literary devices such as symbolism, figurative language, hyperboles or oxymorons can throw a reader off. However, after the reader analyzes and truly understands the poem, these devices can add more depth and understanding, allowing the readers to see deeper inside the poet’s mind. In his poem, ‘The Broken Heart’, John Donne incorporates specific devices to portray that love is an all-consuming, vicious monster that can ruin you. In ‘The Broken Heart’, John Donne’s descriptive vocabulary, explaining the way the speaker’s heart was shattered beyond repair, forces the reader to imagine his or her heart as splintered or crushed as Donne’s. In other words, Donne uses rich imagery to add tangibility to his piece and aide the reader in accurately picturing what’s being discussed.
He also uses this craft to develop his tone on line 1 of the poem, where it states," First they came for the Socialist, and I did not speak out- because I was not a Socialist." Martin likely does this in the poem so the reader can easily comprehend a large experience in a short amount of time and words. Niemoller use's short-precise words to give his tone more of a depressing and reflective feel. Contradictory to Niemoller, Scott Simon's, " SEVEN DECADES ON," use a different type of sentence structure in his style to contribute to his tone. He prefers to use more quotes and longer sentences in his writing.
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
“But presentism asks too much; the poem’s subject is the connection between physical labor and the paradox of the individual/American voice, in which Whitman includes women as well as men, and which must by necessity focus on the identity Whitman wanted to see America achieve. The color of a worker’s skin is irrelevant in Whitman’s America, and singing is free, both by law and by expense”. (Robish ) this proves that Whitman thinks in america that each person works individually on their job but in the end all of them come together as a nation. This is prove in the poem how Whitman uses individualism. “Each singing what belongs to him or her and to none else (Whitman).
Well, I do not think there could be something more added, as long as we are all aware of the fact that poetry is a fine art that requires not only a developed vocabulary, but also a brilliant mind to put all those words in a specific order. (Billy Mills,2008) A Romanian writer, Tudor Arghezi , wrote in his poem Testament that he had chosen for his poem only “right words” : “Eu am ivit cuvinte potrivite”. That means he did a tough work to find the exact words, so that the reader could be able to understand the
This pattern is not common and not many poems followed this structure. The writer intended this to highlight the message of the poem and impart a new point. He was indicating that when people determine, they should keep going forward with the decision that they think is right as it is their own life as the narrator did in the poem. In addition, the depiction of various punctuations in different situations emphasise the theme that the reader perceives. He mainly utilises commas, semi-colons, and full stops.
