The two poems have some similarities and major differences. The two poets write about a well-known person of the time. The poem “Cory” is done in four stanzas while the poem “Bishop” is free verse. “Cory” has standard punctuation and Bond’s poem does not. The main characters of the poems come from completely different backgrounds. In Robinson’s poem, Richard Cory is someone that is humble despite coming from a
In the history of America, few, if any, injustices were more cruel and severe than slavery. Millions of people were forced to work and die against their will and without pay. These slaves were viewed as property, not people. This atrocity inspired some of its victims to write or speak out against the injustice. Two such people were Sojourner Truth and Lucille Clifton. Through their unique experiences with the evil of slavery, they both composed literature to inspire others to take action. Both Sojourner Truth and Lucille Clifton used poetic and rhetorical devices, some of which they shared in common, to express their messages in ways that would be effective in creating societal change and dispelling the injustice from the zeitgeist of
The same thing goes for “On the Pulse of The Morning”. There really isn’t a different message between the poems they both say that we are the same but we still have our own unique features. We created the
¨Trumpeter of Lenox and 7th / through Jesse B. Semple,/ you simply celebrated Blues and Bebop / and beling black before / it was considered hip.¨ (Wesley Boone). Although the poems ¨Long Live Langston¨ by Wesley Boone, and ¨The weary Blues¨ by Langston Hughes were written in different time periods and with different purposes, the poems show similarities such as using similar figurative language to express an idea, and differences such as communicating different themes. Here are some examples of the similarities and differences shown throughout the poems.
Both readings were written in a time of immense promise and hopefulness. But they also both deal with choices and endurance of consequences from that choice. One of several particular elements in each of the stories that best emphasize the theme is the usage of figurative language in each text. Some of the different types of figurative language each author used is simile, personification, and metaphor’s. Another way that the author expressed the theme is in the story is the limitations of the American Dream for African Americans. Whereas in the poem, the author used sort of a cause and effect scenario. As well as using words that have meaning beyond their name.
In the story “Don’t Give Up The Fight” and the poem “Making Sarah Cry” there is a common theme of being different. In “Making Sarah Cry” the boys judge people based on their appearance, though in “Don’t Give Up The Fight” the boys on the team judge Ava because she is the only girl on the track team. They show the theme differently by their characters actions. In “Don’t Give Up The Fight” Amy doesn’t stand up to the bullies until her friend tells her so, in “Making Sarah Cry” Sarah stands up to her bullies when they bully the main character.
Both poem began off with the attention towards the artwork. In "My Last Duchess", the portrait is the discussion 's subject between the Duke and the emissary. In "My Ex Husband" the photograph in the frame is the subject of discussion about her womanizing ex. Both poems are comparable on the grounds that they began with a photo and the story and the story behind their loved one cheating ways. They are additionally comparable with the word 's rhyming toward the end of every verse. The end of " My Last Duchess" words which Browning rhyme are wall, call, hands, and stands and the rhyming through the poem made the break in the poem like a melody. That can likewise be said for "My Ex Husband" with Spera rhyming toward the end of every verse with
The film and the poem had some very similar events and characters. They also had their differences, but after reading and watching both, you can tell that they had to have used some ideas from the poem in the movie. In conclusion, they have greater similarities than there are
Sandra Cisneros is a famous poet from the late twentieth century. Most of her work is popular due to her profound thinking. Her work was very unique and incorporated an extraordinary type of dreamy abstraction. Most observers of her work can agree on this. My Wicked Ways, proved her talent to be “extremely electrifying”, according to the The New York Times Book Review. A poem written almost 3 decades ago, can be assumed to symbolize the childhood of the speaker. My Wicked Ways radiates an unsatisfied tone from the speaker, has a unique rhythm and meter of poem, and attributes different sound and consonants to help the poem flow better.
First, they are written around the same time period and both about blacks being discriminated. Both the poems gave African Americans a little bit of hope that one day they will be allowed to be around whites and looked at as the same. These poems may be different, but they both have the same meaning. If anyone is going through a rough time in their life, they can overcome it. Blacks were treated terribly and went through some of the roughest times, but they never stopped fighting and never lost hope. That is why these poems are about and why they are so similar.
In the same way, the two poems share the same imagery; birds being treated like slaves. Both birds are being tortured by their owners. In Sympathy, it says,
The two sets of poems share the same topic which is living through war, but they have different tones, diction, settings and symbols. Poetry set one views war as a way of gaining honor while set two claims that it’s a waste of lives and all these opposing ideas are due to the different timeline. Tone and diction are one of the most important elements in poetry, because tone is the general character or attitude of a place in a piece of writing, while diction is the choice and use of words and phrases in speech or writing. They can be simply differentiated in general terms as the way or style of speech of a person and the different pitches expressed due to the different emotions being experienced by him/her during speaking which I will go further in detail by the end of this essay.
Barbara Kingsolver is a world renowned American novelist, poet, and essayist. She has written many literary works including, but not limited to, controversial subjects such as politics, nature, and social issues. Kingsolver’s many unique experiences in life have made her the author she is today and ultimately inspired her to write The Poisonwood Bible; one of the most complex and controversial novel out of all of her works.
The two stories Black Swan Green by David Mitchell and Letters to a Young Poet by Rainer Maria Rilke are similar because both are about mentors and mentees in poetry. Both mentors have a young poet seeking help from them. The young poets both learn valuable lessons from the mentors on their writing. The mentors tell them to write what they think and about what they know and love. They tell the poets only to write if they need to write to live and want to dedicate their lives to it. The authors both use many literary elements in their writings. From Letters to a young poet, Rilke uses many different literary elements to teach the young poet more about writing. “So rescue yourself from these general themes and write about what your everyday life offers you.” Rilke is telling the young poet to be original and write about his own life experiences and his own original thoughts. He’s telling the young poet to not use cliches and to be his own self. In other words, Rilke also wants his mentee to look to himself for his ideas.
Poems can be analyzed in various ways ranging from their complexity to the emotions they convey to readers. The poems, “The Weary Blues” by Langston Hughes and “The Harlem Dancer” by Claude McKay will be analyzed based on their similarities and differences to name a few. The poems may describe different events; however the overall connection between the two can be identified by readers with deeper reading. Comparisons between the poems may easier to analyze and identify compared to the contrasts based on the reader’s perception. Overall, the concept and much more will reveal how the poems are connected and special in their own way.
