American poet, Robert Frost in his melancholy poem, “Nothing Gold Can Stay” presents the idea of nothing good lasting forever while using nature as a paradigm. This is represented through seasons with each season representing a different mood or stage in the cycle of growth. He develops his message through the personification of nature to show the drastic changes of plants. Specifically, this is presented in first couplet of the poem “Nature 's first green is gold, Her hardest hue to hold.” The line mentioned is giving nature human characteristics of possession and movement to enhance the meaning behind the words relating to the spring season. Additionally, symbolism is scattered throughout like the use of the biblical paradise Eden.
Sara Teasdale’s poem Spring in War-Time dramatizes the conflict between ever occurring natural forces and the new or accentuated unnatural forces brought on by World War I. Teasdale uses literary devices such as repetition, word choice, capitalization, and structure to convey this conflict. In Spring in War-Time, the natural occurrences that make up the world struggle to remain relevant. The first stanza presents the hope of spring in the distance, but in a war stricken world, it seems to be much further off than it actually is. The narrator is hopeful, saying, “I feel the spring far off, far off,” (1). The repetition of “far off” places extra emphasis on the fact that although spring is coming, it won’t be any time soon, specifically not until the force of warfare relents.
Poe would still continue to love her as he did before and to me, that was the beauty of it all, that he was able to love her regardless of her death. Edgar Allan Poe is irrevocably in love with Annabel Lee at the start and throughout the whole of this poem. Annabel Lee is just the same reciprocating the exact same feelings if not more. “With a love that the winged seraphs of heaven coveted her and me” this portrays to me a love so strong and so passionate that even heaven has reckoned it by blessing their relationship with an angelic power. Both characters are mercilessly separated at the
For Romantic poets, there is no greater force upon humans than one of the many forms of the imagination. For William Wordsworth, this force is exemplified in memory. The greatest example of his exploration of memory comes from "Lines written a few miles above Tintern Abbey, On Revisiting the Banks of the Wye during a Tour, July 13, 1798." In it he displays his opinion of memory as a powerful source of enlightenment and pleasure through his interaction with the natural world. It becomes something he recalls time and time again to ease the ills of everyday life, giving him solace that he hopes can also affect the companion of the poem, his sister, Dorothy.
William Carlos Williams puts in a description about Icarus’s fall “sweating in the sun that melted the wings ' wax” he also starts off with spring, “Themes of rebirth and renewal often use symbols from the spring season. Spring also refers to love, hope, youth and growth.” The poem starts off with talking about spring, which symbolizes new beginnings, love, joy, and happiness, which completely throws Icarus’s fall out of the picture considering he died, William Carlos Williams talks about how he died as well, which is important because it describes how his death wasn’t random and him falling out of the sky isn’t confusing, it also links back into spring and how his fall was irrelevant and unnoticed. This poem gives people more than just a description, it has a wider explanation when you look into it, there are many symbols that truly define the poem which is extremely
Almost I would venture to assert that all complete fairy-stories must have it.” (13). Happy endings leave us with a cozy and heartwarming feeling and they “offer a kind of satisfaction and consolation.” (Tolkien 12).

Progressively, the poet uses liquid imagery and enjambment in order to convey how the past brutality act flows like a river to the present. Thus, it can be acknowledge that the poet’s message serves to depict how violent and atrocious act is endless. In the “Exposure” the poet conveys his message differently. Unlike The Grauballe Man, Heaney progressively come to an understanding that poetry is a tool that can voice his opinions with the society. The final stanza of the poem, “who, blowing up these sparks for their meagre heat, have missed the once-in-a-lifetime portent, the comet’s pulsing rose”, represent the poet’s message about time.
He experimented with his writing skills and showed his readers both present and past in one poem, he glorified the past in contrast withthe corrupt present. Eliot plays with the concept of time and the stream of consciousness. Understanding the time structure of the poem is known to be the only key to understand the meaning of this poem. The complex movement from past to present is represented via allusions and references. The opening lines of the poem indicates that the poem is set in the month of ‘April’ and it is the present.
