The need for love is first introduced in “Joyas Valodoras” through the metaphor of the hummingbird. Doyle discusses the life and times of the hummingbirds, citing their incredible abilities for their awe-inspiring nature. However, their glory must, as all do, come to an end sometime; when they rest, “if they are not warmed, if they do not soon find that which is sweet, their hearts grow cold,
But, the stories are different because of the poetic structure, tame or wild animals, and simple of sophisticated diction. First, the author’s style is similar in “Predators” and “A Blessing”. Both of the poems have sound devices. For example, in “A Blessing” the author repeats the word “they” several times at the beginning of each line, “they ripple tensely, they can hardly contain their happiness” and “they bow shyly as wet swans. They love each other.” In “Predators” the author has an alliteration, “in the trust that many tales spun this tract long before I came.” The sound devices give more details and can help the poem flow better.
This affects Oliver's tone throughout the poem as well as infuses the poem with motivation and inspiration. The speaker's tone gives the poem a peaceful and accepting mood/atmosphere. The use of the title “Wild Geese” gives the reader a first glimpse of what they will experience throughout the poem. The poet uses the
Galway Kinnell’s “Blackberry Eating” is an excellent example of how sound enhances poetry. Kinnell’s outstanding use of repeated alliterations gives the poem a different feel than many other poems. The constant use of soft sounds, interrupted quickly by a few hard sounds develops the feeling that Kinnell wanted me to feel. The repetitive use of certain words slows the reader down to allow them to cherish the poem, and the blackberries longer. The alliterations of this poem greatly increase its overall effect.
The poem “Rain, Snow, and Other Weather” by Lauren Stacks is about the weather, as the title may hint at. However, this is not all it is truly about. It follows the narrator of the poem, who is speaking to a friend about how they’re “like the weather” (1), through the usage of metaphors and vivid imagery. The most literal interpretation of this poem would then be, unquestionably, that the speaker has become part of the forecast. However, if one looks at the meaning in a more figurative way, it takes on a vastly different sense.
The use of pathos affects the purpose by contrasting two different emotions in the same sentence to emphasis that sometimes you have to do something that isn’t so pleasant to bring a feeling of accomplishment and bliss when you are living a simple life. The use of Organization in “Higher Laws” helps relate the purpose to the reader.The use of Imagery in the first paragraph establishes Thoreau’s desire to engulf himself in nature and and the thrills that nature brings him. When he says “I caught a glimpse of a woodchuck…and felt a strange thrill of delight… and was tempted to seize and devour him…,” Thoreau uses his senses to stress the importance of nature and the feelings that it brings. Thoreau uses periodic sentences throughout his writings such as “I have found repeatedly, of late years, that I cannot fish without falling a little in self-respect,” to emphasis the individual in nature and the importance of the individual and the role that individual plays in the possibility of simplicity in nature. The use of anaphora helps to relate back to the purpose as using the quote from Thseng-tseu "The soul not being mistress of
John Muir’s essay, The Calypso Borealis, and William Wordsworth’s poem, I wandered Lonely as a Cloud, are two wonderfully written works centered towards their love for nature. They were able to create vivd images in the reader’s head through their writing as well as emotional transitions. Both works, inspired by events in the 19th century, have their differences, however, their emotion and love for nature is the same and creates the same impact with the
Being yourself is better even though people don’t like you. In the end, the poem “Identity” by Julio Noboa Polanco talks about how it’s good to be unique, to be yourself. Julio Noboa Polanco uses the literary devices of alliteration, simile, and repetition. I think the message of the poem reflects certain things that happen in life. Like people can be someone but not
In the presence of nature a wild delight runs through the man, in spite of real sorrows. Every bit of alternation in the atmosphere in nature gives man happiness. At the same time, nature as a teacher teaches man to accept all the changes in life. It also motivates man. In the world of literature nature plays a very role to set the mood of the text.
