The Take Away from Words Poems are very unique from other types of writings. For one, a poem’s structure is very different and unique compared to an essay or story’s formatting. Poems are used to talk about experiences, express ideas or emotions, and imaginative thinking. Readers can make different connections and find their own different meanings in poems. Many poems, like the essayist’s Richard Harrison’s work, deeply explore universal ideas about death, love, grief, and the mystery of life.
Aristotle, in his Poetics considers poetry a mimes form that has language, rhythm and lyrics. Moreover, in those days, any literary piece of work could be written in lyrics. The using of delicate forms of transmitting the message distinguishes poetry from other forms of literary texts. (Billy Mills,2008) Samuel Taylor Coledrige has a famous quote: "I wish our clever young poets would remember my homely definitions of prose and poetry; that is, prose - words in their best order; poetry - the best words in their best order."

Most notably, Fitzgerald titled one of his works Tender is the Night, a line directly out of Keats’ “Ode to a Nightingale.” However, as Dan McCall explains out in his essay, “Keat’s influence on the Great Gatsby should not be understood exclusively in terms of ‘literary imitation’”(McCall 522). Not only does Fitzgerald include very similar style of writing to his role model, but he also deliberately writes in a way that encapsulates the same emotions, evoking the same feelings Keats does in his poetry. Reading Keats’ "Ode to a Nightingale" illuminates new meaning and comprehension on to Fitzgerald’s complex characters, especially the enigma of Gatsby who spends much of the book shrouded in mystery.
Indecisive Aspiration In his poem “Dream Deferred” (1951), Langston Hughes questions what would happen if a person put their dreams on hold.

The word “deferred” means to delay or hold back, Hughes asserts an emotional thought

These devices help the reader get their point across is a bigger way than just simply saying something like the black bird. Edgar Allen Poe used different types of literary devices to help make his stories more dark and dreary.
