His poetry was used to portray his feelings toward the Age of Reason and revolt against it. William Wordsworth’s poems The Tables Turned and London, 1802 both stick to the Romanticist idea of going against the industrial period but through different means such as approach and similar means such as diction and themes. Wordsworth uses similar means in his poem to share his message. The diction ,word choice, used in London, 1802 and The Tables Turned poem correlate by the strength of the words used and literary devices used to describe specific aspects of society. In London, 1802 Wordsworth uses many similes to compare his lost friend Milton to other things.
1. Brief introduction “Anthem for Doomed Youth” is a sonnet written by Wilfred Owen during the World War I. It is a traditional war poetry which builds a contrast between the mourning rituals and the brutal warfare. The writer shows his hatred of the warfare and sympathy for the soldiers who died during the unjust war. “The Diameter of the Bomb” is written by Yehuda Amichai, who is an Israel modern poet.
At one point in college, he as he was reading a short story he wrote, a friend made a negative comment directed toward the literature and he immediately hurled the book in the fire. While Poe’s fame grew so did the people who objected to his writing they were often trying to force Phone into a writing style that Poe had no intention of being in; Poe attitude towards those people are what created the his famous work such as The masque of the Red Death .In The masque of the Red Death, the main character the Prince has provided a shelter for his most loved citizens and him leaving the people of his to fend for themselves against this brutal disease; “ The eternal world will take care of itself… the prince had provided all of the appliances for pleasure”(64). Not only was this fictional prince cowardly, but he was also revealed how Poe himself felt about being left out because of his odd behavior. Poe was always writing with hash vocabulary, in The Pit and the Pendulum he did not disappoint. Poe again talked about being trapped in deadly situation this time it was about a man being “tied by no separation
Owen was taken out of the war where he began writing poems. He wrote his poems to show both his anger at the cruelty and waste of war. (BBC) Owen used this poem to show the misconception that war is. While people outside of the war thought it was honorable, soldiers like Owen himself, know how cruel and it really is. Through the use of imagery, figurative language, and tone, Owen is able to portray the misconception and cruelty of war.
W.H Auden was a poet who had influences from several other English poets, along with this he was inspired by his past experiences to write this poem, “Refugee Blues”. He visited Germany, Iceland, China and served in the Spanish civil war and in 1939 he moved to the United States. The poem “Refugee Blues” was written in 1939. It portrays the living standard of the Jews at the time, and strongly dramatizes how they were treated, as well as also showing the hatred the German Nazis had for them. The poem evokes empathy from the reader as it shows the desperation of the refugees seeking asylum and seeking hope.
3. In the film Dead Poets Society and using poem “O me! O Life!” by Walt Whitman was Neil`s choice making a suicide wrong, because how bad his life was it was never so bad, that he could made a suicide. Because always is an answer or solution for situation. In the poem is the writer put into question too life existents and the thought of living.
Both of the authors write their text in the time period of the Holocaust. Niemoller list names of groups that were persecuted during the Nazi Revolution, while Simon is writing about a Holocaust victim. They most likely both mention the time period not only because it contributes to their topic, but to give their tone more of a serious and hopeful ambience. The two writers also both use irony in their styles, although they use different types of irony they both use it to farther develop their text. The poem, "First They Came...," uses dramatic irony to make the reader feel a sense of his regret and to make the reader personally reflect what he experienced.
Everyone knows that war has been a necessary evil since mankind has set foot on the Earth, but most people don’t understand the full scope of how horrible war can be. Wilfred Owen is a poet that experienced the horrors of war firsthand, so Owen’s personal experience allowed him to create two poems that reveal what war was like. These poems may have a similar subject, but the poems accomplish their tasks in very different ways. “The Parable of the Old Man and the Young” is an allusion to Genesis 22:1-19, but with a twist to reveal the truth about war. In “Arms and the Boy” Owens uses a more direct path to tell the reader the truth of war, which is through imagery and personification.
The physical delivery of a spoken word poem is just as significant as the verbal delivery of the poem because sometimes actions speak louder than words and the poet is able to accentuate the emotion and meaning of the poem. The poem “Reincarnation” begins with a short narrative that Vaid-Menon gives their audience about their father. They immediately give the audience a bad impression of their father by associating him with being an “evil man.” In the narration, Vaid-Menon essentially compares their father to a person on drugs and from their
Auden's poem puts in an idea of suffering, and the cycle of life, and how people move on whether you like it or not. The poem starts off with suffering, “About suffering they were never wrong,” and also talks about the cycle of life when you move further down “That even the dreadful martyrdom must run its course”. W.H. Auden gave a different point of view of his idea on the painting, he seemed to focus on the little details that no one else has focused on, he also started off with suffering, and connected it to his description on Icarus’s fall, but like other poems he used the idea that people will move on, by adding other organisms into the topic, about how a dog moves on with his life just like the people do. W.H.
