Eliot. Its themes are, like many of Eliot’s poems, absurdity, fragmentation and overlapping, but it is crucial to connect this poem most with the World War 1 which caused the dark view since wars cause destruction and frustration. Moreover, the difficulty of hope and being optimistic. This poem is divided into five parts and consists of 98 lines. MUHSIN Al MUSAWI in his research about trajectories of Modernity and Tradition (2006) says: “Apart from scant collections of translated modern poetry and several essays in which literary critics try to account for the transformative nature of modernist poetic writing, modern Arabic poetry remains inaccessible and limited to articles on well- known poets.
Eliot (1). This is certainly true for his works “The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock” and “The Waste Land”. These works, written in the early days of the Modernist writing movement, show Eliot’s displeasure with the modern world he inhabited. This attitude is reflected in the two works mentioned above, and are expressed in the themes of isolation and miscommunication. While the title suggests that The Lovesong of J. Alfred Prufrock is a love poem, the poem centres around the theme of isolation, as can be seen by the use of pronouns and the isolation of certain lines on the type page.

"No Man Is an Island" Analysis Essay Poetry has an impact that not everyone tends to understand, therefore we underestimate the power of learning it. In "No Man Is an Island" by John Donne, the speaker talks about how all people are part of a whole, and how mortality is evitable. The Domino effect is evident is this poem because we all have an impact on everybody even stranger we do not know. With no particular rhythm scheme, Donne makes connections to his current life after what recently happened to him like losing his wife. This comes from Donne in a time of religious revival and the concurring thought of death on his mind.
“Ars Poetica”, written by Archibald MacLeish, is a Modernist poem that, through careful sensory images, provides guidelines and clear examples of the true form of poetry, and in effect, the poem reveals how life should be lived. “Ars Poetica” is a beacon poem of the Imagist era, yet, at the same time, breaks many Modernist traditions. Similes are utilized throughout the poem to provide examples of how a poem should be brought into existence and evoke instantaneous feelings. “Ars Poetica” breaks the cardinal sin of Imagist poetry, “wordiness”, when it uses repetition to bring across, surprisingly, the core idea of Imagism. This ingenious contrast and contradiction within the poem, presented through imagery, is yet another angle used by MacLeish
Conformity is gradually oppressing the world in which we live in. This ideal is prominently illustrated in the film Pleasantville which is directed, and produced by Gary Ross. Pleasantville is a great demonstration of the dangers of abiding by society’s expectations, and the freedoms that come with rebelling to these expectations and embracing change. Gary Ross uses several literary techniques such as; colour (symbolism), and character development to indicate the lack of creativity, and originality in society. Throughout the film, Ross illustrates how obstructive conformity can be to society, and how rewarding rebelling to societal norms can be for not only self growth, but societal advancement as well.
Metaphysical poets are unable to achieve their poetic goals because they do not represent basic human nature and human feelings in their poetry. Metaphysical poets are highly argumentative. They are the men of learning. In their poetry we find the union of soul and mind, thought and emotion, Sublimity and Triviality. T. S Eliot has rightly pointed out that passionate thinking is the chief mark of metaphysical poetry.
Thirdly, modern poetry is predominantly intellectual in its appeal, rather than emotive. Fourthly, modern poetry involved symbolism, greatest example being T.S. Eliot and W.B. Yeats. Lastly, modern poetry is impersonal, anti-romantic, and innovative in attitude and approaches to life.
