Poe uses very complex syntax in many of his short stories and poems. He also uses irony and vivid imagery in order to convey a series of eerie truths that have resonated in the hearts of millions of readers. Poe uses great examples of situational, dramatic, and verbal irony in The Cask of Amontillado, Annabel Lee, and Tell-Tale Heart. His sentence structure tends to be long, flowy and intricate in the beginning “ Hereafter, perhaps, some intellect may be found which will reduce my phantasm to the common-place — some intellect more calm, more logical, and far less excitable than my own, which will perceive, in the circumstances I detail with awe, nothing more than an ordinary succession of very natural causes and effects.” (The Black Cat p.1). However, in the middle, the sentence structure tends to be short and almost staccato in nature, allowing the reader to quicken their pace and become more interested in the story “With my aversion to this cat, however, its partiality for myself seemed to increase.” (The Black Cat p.18).

The main analysis is in terms of the images the poet presents and how the objects in the poem enhance meaning. The poem talks about how different people see what can never change in life.

This part of the poem uses the idea of going into a poems room as a symbol for looking deep into the poem to find it's true meaning. Billy Collins is trying to say that there is not any specific process you have to go through in order to understand poetry. He's saying that they are many different ways to understand poetry and different understandings of poetry, that their is no certain steps to take when understanding poetry. He is trying to explain that to understand poetry you simply have to read it.

The poem end did not really present its self in a way that i could put a finger on i would love it if we could discuss this poem in class.

Modernism is a movement that arose from wide-scale and far-reaching transformations in Western society in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
Elliot simply used these allusions to tell his own story, sometimes giving new meanings to quotes, or adding emphasis to new words or phrases. Often, these references had to be understood themselves for a reader to truly know what was being said in one of Elliot’s works. One such work that contains so many references to past writers and works, is “The Love Story of J. Alfred Prufrock”. The story of Prufrock is an intriguing one dominated by allusions and many references to earlier works of literature that Elliot himself read, and applied to a story of a modern man. The love song is actually a poem, but one of the meanings of love song, is a poem.
