Collins opens up with this to show how important his lover is to him, by doing this he sets the tone of the poem. People tend to do this as well, often people tell each other how important or valuable they are to them to create a sense of love. Collins refers to Shakespeare when he compares a woman to his favorite season (1). As humans, love is a natural thing, and Collins makes that very prominent in the way he flatters his lover so easily. This is relatable because when people love each other they often say sweet complements.
The poem “My Love for You is so Embarrassingly” by Todd Boss is a poem about love and the whirlwind of feelings you get when experiencing it. In this poem, Boss uses many figures of speech in order to put ourselves in his shoes and help us better understand what love is to him. The title may cause confusion; why would love be so embarrassing? Throughout the poem he uses several metaphors ultimately explaining it.
First, we must begin with the emotional state that this story puts its readers in. In this story Chopin gives just enough imagery to see from Mrs. Mallards point of view. Being able to relate to how the character is feeling helps draw the reader in. While reading I could feel the emotional happiness Mrs. Mallard felt when she believed she was free after finding out her husband had died.
I have to admit that I spent a really good time while reading Myriam Gurba’s Painting Their Portraits in Winter. Personally I have always enjoyed reading novels that contain topics, stories out of common. Myriam Gurba’s novel is full of ridiculous, interesting, and, in some occasions, disgusting stories. What I really liked most about the book is the story about the tamales and the dead children. I am pretty sure that this December every time I see a tamal I would be thinking in this creepy story.
One example of this is when he stated ¨ Oh, of course it is! she cried sitting down on the sofa.¨ This helps create the tension between Billy and the old woman when she continuously forgets his name. Another good example of this craft move was when he wrote “Such charming boys a voice said behind him answered.”
My people believe romanticism is someone who falls in love with a woman and they live happily ever after but no they’re wrong it actually means, For instance, Edgar Allen Poe remains popular today for his haunting and suspenseful stories he makes intense and interesting for the reader's attention and makes everything more fun for the reader. The minister of the black veil is about the man who is a minister. One day he wore a black veil and since that day his life just instinct. For example, one of the American romanticism characteristics is used in The minister's Black veil by Nathaniel Hawthorne.
II. Comparison and Contrast: These two literary pieces are one of the saddest love stories in literature. In most romances, their love bloomed slowly and their love was truly above all and became the purpose of their lives, loving each other till their last breath. These two literary pieces are one of the best stories that I’d ever read, and it was so wonderful and breathtaking, reading this gave me a thrill of suspense, while thinking how to compare and contrast between the two literary pieces, the common is that both are all about love and tragedy. Romeo and Juliet is forbidden to fall in love because of their family having an ongoing feud, and had a love at first sight, they are expressing their love secretly and privately for their family
In the poem, Warren experiences regret and learns a big lesson to forgive and accept people before it is too late. Through his facial, the emotional and behavioral changes that Warren experiences becomes a lesson. In Death of the Hired Man by Robert Frost is an interesting and an eye opener story. It helps readers understand the lesson and use it in the real world.
When you read a piece of his art you feel like you get all the benefits. One of Frost’s more popular poems is “Fire and Ice” and this poem is short but hits you with raw emotion. It explores the two forces and how they bring destruction to the world, while, “The Mending Wall," is slower paced and shows us that humans like separations
He also shared another poem about his dad called “Shaving.” He also read two excerpts from the book. I really enjoyed hearing what I have read in the voice of the author. It just made the parts funnier and in a way more personal. At the end, he told us about what he hoped we got from the novel.
Other techniques that were used include hyperboles such as when the unknown hitchhiker also stated “If I opened my mouth it would spill out like a torrent of acid” (Page 24). The story also used the techniques of imagery where the hitchhiker described what their sister looked like “then the memory of Melanie’s grey face with the bruises around her neck and the dried blood in her hair jumped up to haunt me”. (Page 23) The writer, Sherryl Clark also used hook as she kept the reader guessing.
“Paul Revere was a successful silversmith” stated the Story “Paul Revere and the American Revolution” by Ethel Ames also that same poem has put how he rode away from the British to warn the Americans that the British were coming. On the other hand, The poem “Paul Revere's ride” by Henry Longfellow was about how he warned the Americans about the British with a lantern by himself. A different poem called “How accurate was Longfellow's poem” by Franklin Johnson. states how Henry Longfellow the person who wrote “Paul Revere's ride” was not accurate. Now, Longfellow had one person, Paul Revere, when there were actually three people. Samuel Prescott and William Dawes were the two other people that were there to help him with his ride.
Dulce Et Decorum Est and The Charge of Light Brigade are both very similar poems but they share many differences and the authors have a different viewing point. I am going to discuss the differences but also the similarities. I will also talk about how the authors are standing in different shoes and sharing different experiences. I will tie the two poems together here and talk about how they relate.
Comparing the Works of T.S. Eliot and Theodore Roethke When reading the two poems, one can definitely catch the similarities of both poems, yet how they vary differently. One poem talks about how the winter evening makes the day feel and the other talks about how dark it is in the cellar and the how life is down there. They both seem to have been written by someone going through depression or a difficult situation in life. Many poems can be written to sound similar to another piece of work, yet have different meaning and ideas.
