The Garden of Love and The Divine Image are two poems that William Blake has written that has so much similarities as well as differences. Although The Divine Image and The Garden of Love are about two different topics, William Blake used similar and different techniques to convey the meaning of his poem such as repetition, personification, story format, and rhyme scheme. First of all, One of the techniques
Rhyming can generally make you want to sing a poem, not just recite it. Prelutsky uses rhyming in many different places, using words such as “see, and me”. These two words are rhymed in the phrase, “there were chickens, chickens, chickens for as far as I could see… when I woke today, I noticed there were eggs on top of me.” There is a pattern to his rhymes. Every other line, he makes two
Poe uses strong words such as “demons” to help readers understand how strong the love was between the man and Annabel Lee and to help them make a connection to it. Last but not least, the poem “The Raven” is also an example of word choice. In the poem, Poe writes “Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered, weak and weary,” Poe uses word choice in this poem because he uses words such as “weak and weary” to emphasise the emotions he had and help the reader have a connection to his poem. Overall, Poe uses word choice in all of his poems to help readers make a connection to his writing. All in all, Edgar Allan poe uses imagery and word choice in all of his poems.
It is a habit I picked up from reading and writing poetry, one that can unexpectedly come in handy in all sorts of situations. A good text has to flow, it has to have a rhythm to it. I always refer to a quote by Borges as the golden rule of writing: “Poetry always remembers that it was an oral art before it was a written art. It remembers that it was first song.” Whether I am successful in this endeavor or not, it is not up to me to decide, but there is always more work to be done. For instance, as I was reading to my colleague, I realized — or rather, I was painfully reminded once again — that I should read and write more in English.
Both of Walt Whitman articles are transcendentalism; Mr. Whitman shows individualism and nature in “Song to Myself” which are qualities of transcendentalism. In “Song to myself” he mostly uses individualism as you can tell just by the title he is describing himself in a song. Mr.Whitman uses repetition in his poem “I celebrate myself”(Whitman 1). Throughout the poem he uses the word “I” to describe himself which shows individualism which is a romantic quality. Mr.Whitman also uses imagery in his “Song to Myself”.
In all of his poems you are always able to find some kind of rhyme in this case you can find it at the end of each line. In the first stanza there is an alternating rhyme but after that in the next stanzas they have continual rhymes. “To upstart Wealth 's averted eye/To supple Office low and high/To crowded halls/to court, and street/To frozen hearts, and hasting feet.” (lines 9-12 Good-by) In these lines it shows continual rhyming, in Ralph Waldo Emerson’s poems you normally find the rhymes at the end of each line. When he wrote poems he was very how he worded them and made them correlate with his thought of nature. “And when I am stretched beneath the pines/Where the evening star so holy shines/I laugh at the lore and the pride of man/At the sophist schools, and the learned clan.” (lines 25-28 Good- by) Rhyme is a huge part of poetry it brings the poem together.
To further the idea of nature 's influence, Sandburg develops the personified character of grass from which the point of view the poem is told. By having the grass state, “I am the grass; I cover all,” he personifies nature as a conscious being. This allows the grass to feel the emotions it forms through the poem and furthers the idea of indifference through the conscious decision to ignore human interference. This character that Sandburg creates is a callous being, who sees and recognizes the suffering that has taken place, but is only concerned with itself, and its own interests. The character of grass puts a twist on the stereotypical idea of a nurturing mother nature by ignoring the human disputes and just cleaning up the mess for its own
He probes the quality of truth and accepts that there may be no answer. . His poetic impulse starts with some psychological concern and finds its way to a material embodiment which usually includes a natural scene. Frost always takes time to describe it with sensitivity and care while using good poetic technique especially figurative language. Many of his poems are text book examples of the use of imagery and poetic devices of all kinds.
Poetry Comparison Using limited words, poets can tell a story, express heartache, or impart advice. Unique and artistic, poetry peaks as the most creative style of writing. By dissecting elements individually, text across different time periods can begin to relate to one another. While “Still I Rise,” “The Road Not Taken,” and “Daddy” may seem unrelated at first glance, they share the similar underlying theme that our personal mentalities and choices directly affect our lives; however, the differences in the ‘type’ of poem and rhyme scheme express these thoughts diversely. Poetry, by nature, allows for each reader to interpret the theme in a different manor.
The most profound poets of Walt Whitman’s day including Homer, Virgil, Dante, and Shakespeare were so well known because they wrote with rhyme and structure in every line they wrote. This is the way poetry was written until Walt Whitman published his first book of poetry called “Leaves of Grass” which, although had some harsh criticism when it was first published, completely changed poetry ever since. Walt Whitman abandoned the regular meter and rhyme patterns (Walt Whitman) and according to Robert Hudspeth created a whole new poetic form. (Walt Whitman Biography). Whitman profoundly created meaning in his poetry by using a technique not well known in poetry at his time known as free verse, innovative use of figurative language, and writing
1) Q: Beah moves around in time as he tells his story, flashing forward and backward. What is the effect of this technique of the overall meaning of the text? Would it be more effective if he stuck to strict chronology? Why or why not? A: Beah often went from flashback to flash forward in his writing and it tended to give off a slight DID (Dissociative Identity Disorder) feel but it was also written in an very powerfully way that really need not be changed.
Langston Hughes had a short range of word choice. Many words were repeated in the poem like shadow, walls, sun, rose, and dark. As I Grew Older, by Langston Hughes, is a great poem that can capture a reader’s attention with imagery, syntax, and diction that is used throughout the poem. Langston Hughes used Imagery, syntax and diction in his poem to explain the challenge of overcoming many obstacles in order to reach his dream. This poem, although it was sad and depressing, became very uplifting towards the end as he found a way to break through the darkness and reach his dream in the
