"The Raven" is the most famous of Poe's poems, notable for both its melodic and dramatic qualities. Emphasizing the "O" sound in words such as "Lenore" and "nevermore" underlines the lonely sound of the poem and establishes the overall atmosphere, and the repetition of "nevermore" gives a circular sense to the poem and contributes to what Poe called the unity of effect, where each word and line adds to the larger meaning of the poem. Like a number of Poe's poems, “The Raven” concerns an agonized protagonist's memories of a deceased woman. Throughout the narrative, the unnamed narrator’s emotional journey reflects the changes in his mind as well as the overall narrative. There are three sections in “The Raven,” most aptly described as the speaker
Sandra Cisneros is a famous poet from the late twentieth century. Most of her work is popular due to her profound thinking.

My Wicked Ways, proved her talent to be “extremely electrifying”, according to the The New York Times Book Review.
• Metaphor is well used in the story “The Ones Who Walk Away from Omelas” written by Ursula K. Le Guin. Metaphor is a comparison stated in such a way as to imply that one object is another one. Guin uses a lot of metaphors in the beginning of the story to help build the setting of Omelas. “Children dodged in and out, their high calls rising like the swallows’ crossing flights over the music and the singing.” (Lines 7-8, Guin). Guin is comparing the excessive joy to the behavior of a swallow bird.
In comparison to Bradstreet’s style was Phillis Wheatley, who wrote with a genuine spirit, straight forward simplicity, and was direct. Wheatley first found her fame with the poem “On the Death of the Rev. Mr. George Whitefield,” in 1770. Eulogies were very popular at the time and her work found attention in England as well as America. Examples of Wheatley’s sincerity can be found in all of her work, because she wrote from the heart and in a way that all men and women could connect to her work.
Sometimes in life you must break free to see the world. Like the poem “The Bird, the Star, and the Flower” by Milena Salazar, the song “Breaking Free” by Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens, is about breaking away freely like a bird from the ordinary onto finding a new destination. “We 're soarin ', flying. There 's not a star in heaven that we can 't reach” (Breaking Free) “I am as free as a bird; I hope to touch the stars one day; I see myself soaring over the sky” (The Bird, the Star, and the Flower) The main theme is to soar, explore, and fly onto a new journey like a bird or a star. Also, never lose hope of touching the stars because as you thrive like a flower you will see it is not as hard as you imagined.
1. After viewing the documentary and listening to each song by Rodgers and Hammerstein the song that made the most impact on me was the song “Some Enchanted Evening.” The song consists of very smooth and romantic melodies. Due to that I am a hopeless romantic I really enjoy the song lyrics and melody. The song was very catchy that I ended up singing the song for the rest of my day. One of my favorite lyrics of the song was.
“There is only one you.Stop trying to devalue yourself by trying to be a copy of someone else.” ~Susie Clevenger. Susie Clevenger is one of the greatest poet and author. Her poems connect to life and identity. In this quote she rightly states that, in the world there is only one of us, and by trying to be identical to someone we forget who we really are. Sometimes in life, we are so determined to get what we want that we forget who we really are.
In this analysis, he says that Kaye is one of America’s wisest writers. “Gibbon's wisdom is an insight into the human heart, an understanding of what is true or just or right in us” ( McMillan 2011). When Gibbons says “It took me a long time to learn that mistakes aren't good or bad, they're just mistakes, and you clean them up and go on.” (Gibbons 2011) it proves that what Eari in saying is right. McMillan also claims that “even when writing from the perspective of an emotionally wrecked, but fanciful young girl, Gibbon's is reporting the emotional wreckage and the fancy with a clear, dry eye.” It shows that in her writing she can make it emotional and adventurous at the same time, this is a sign of a great writer. Again the work of Kaye Gibbons was widely praised and honoured with awards.
The Heriodes is one of the works written by Ovid. This letter from Phaedra to Hippolytus appears to be an epistolary elegiac poem, considering the ultimate goal of Phaedra’s letter was to confess her love to Hippolytus and have him reciprocate those feelings. In the first eighteen lines of Phaedra to Hippolytus in the Heriodes, there is a profound introduction to the reader, who in this case would be Hippolytus. Phaedra does an impressive job during the first few lines of giving no details other than the fact that she is writing a letter. In this vague introduction, which is the first line, Ovid in the persona of Phaedra starts with introducing the characters as “a girl” and “a man”.
Adah’s experiences, values, and interests all come together through this single Dickinson poem, and her character in the book is even still further developed. It is yet another instance where Adah’s love for poetry allows her to connect her emotions and explain to the reader truly how she feels, because verbal expression was never Adah’s strong

It tells of how she is proud of who she is and she is not afraid to be a

Macha’s writing style varies. Poemhunter.com states that “The revival of alliterative poetry in Old Norse verse meters is one of [Macha’s] pet projects.” “Way Home” is not alliterative, but is an example of a poem written in Old Norse verse meters (Macha 1). “Way Home’s” tone is thankful, gratuitous, and praising, mimicking Macha’s feelings for her gods. It shows that Macha’s religion is her faith, her “beacon in darkness,” as stated in the poem, and found her when she needed it most (Macha 1). In conclusion, Michaela Macha is a German Asatru poet who has written many poems and songs about the religion that means so much to her.
