Spend Time with the People who Love you What is your favorite winter song? What does the song try to tell you? The song Baby its Cold Outside is an amazing song in which the writer does an outstanding job describing how lovers want to spend as much time together as they can during the winter. The writer of the song uses several literary devices to portray their theme. The theme may change for another person depending on their opinion.
In the poem by Sax, he uses anaphoras in the end of the poem by using “this is … this is…” (l. 9-11) in the beginning of each sentence to describe the likeliness of each object to his emotion. The setting of his poem is more ambiguous than Levine’s poem but it could be inferred that it’s at night during winter it could also be in the character’s house during that time as the character remembers the memories that cause him to grieve. Levine’s poem uses symbolism to describe the character’s time of revelations during his process of grieving which is mentioned as a dance but is really the time spent walking in the woods (l. 19). The setting of Levine’s poem is in the woods which can be inferred from the imagery of pinecones and mountain
This shows the transitions in her thought processes between looking at the beauty of the world and being unable to forget the struggles of the world. The placement of these two ideas could also be an example of juxtaposition, showing conflicting, or antonymous, ideas next to one another to emphasize how these same occurrences take place in the modern world. Furthermore, examples of juxtaposition are also present in “Winter Stars.” “From shadows shaken on the snow,/ I saw Orion in the east,” uses several literary elements to show the changes in thoughts. “Shadows shaken on the snow,” serve an example of visual imagery. Teasdale uses conflicting images, and ideas, of light and darkness to represent her thoughts.
Evidently, we can already see some connections between the two poems through the plots and themes. In addition, Keats uses specific literary techniques in both poems to attract the audience better and to convey his message easier. Firstly, Keats makes use of nature, season and time in both of the poems. This, then contributes to the use of metaphors and imagery. For example, in La Belle Dame Sans Merci, although it is warm season, perhaps spring or summer, when the knight is in love with la belle dame, the reality is in cold and harsh winter.
The authors, Linda Thomas and Joan Didion intersect and diverge from one another in the passages. They use moves in their writing in order to shape their message about the winds. Both “Brush Fire” and “The Santa Ana” have different purposes for the readers. The purpose of “Brush Fire” is to entertain the audience and the purpose of “the Santa Ana” is to inform the readers of the behavior and the mood of Santa Ana during these times. The authors use rhetorical devices like tone and
Robert Frost has so much enthusiasm about life in his poems. Other events that may have influenced him to write poems the way he does are, visiting different places and things. When he moved, he went to different colleges and got different experiences to write poems. In Frost’s three poems, “Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening (“SBW”), “The Road Not Taken” (“RNT”), and “Nothing Gold Can Stay” (“NGS”), there are both similarities and differences in form and style, theme and meaning, and tone and mood. First off, in the poem “Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening”, the form of it is a traditional form.
Robert Frost’s poem “Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening” takes the reader on a journey through the his experience of traveling to snowy woods with his horse. The woods do not only provide the speaker with feelings of isolation, but with ideas of contemplation regarding his future actions. In the first stanza, Frost emphasizes that he stops at a house in a village where he is watching the woods become covered in snow. In line 2, Frost says, “His house is in the village though.” The word village typically refers to houses that are located in a rural area with a small population. Since he is in a village, the reader knows that the area that is clear from the chaos of city life.
Once again, some other force designing the situation has placed them together. The partly ambiguous, “what but design of darkness to appall” (Frost 13) comes as something taken for granted, a relief almost, in its mere statement and generalization, after the almost unbearable actuality and particularity of what has come before. Frost expands on the idea that perhaps life was made to “appall” but if that’s the case then life seems to be heavily embedded with evil and misfortune. Perhaps this poem is not questioning religion but merely questioning meaning behind the essence of life. In this line Frost tries to allow the reader to experience what it’s like for life to have an impending notion to
This act of decision serves as a retreat from the urban horror of the sectarian warfare. While away, Heaney progressively understand his role in the society. The structure of the poem begins with the poet wandering around during a winter season. It can also be seen that the poet describes his surroundings in a first person point of view. “And I sometimes see a falling star.
Adversity draws men together and produces beauty and harmony in life’s relationships, just as the cold of winter produces ice-flower on the window- panes, which vanish with the warmth. (Soren Kierkgaard) Vikram Seth’s first novel, The Golden Gate(1986) is a survey of contemporary love relationships in an urban society and the search for harmony with or without love relationships when situations are adverse. Love and survival are the central themes in Vikram Seth’s novels. The present chapter focuses on TGG, which is a novel written in verse form with rigid sonnet parameter. This is a very daring work, considering the fact that poetry is usually written in free verse today and drama has been written in blank verse, but the said novel has been written in iambic tetrameter.
