This prompt lets me express myself, and that is why I chose it. 2. The style of punctuation and the amount that I use punctuation varies throughout the poem. I did this on purpose. In the first stanza of the poem, I try to emulate Sylvia Plath in that I use enjambment to separate ideas to help the reader discern what is important.
How could a poetry reader and a pilgrim have any similarities? In Edward Hirsch’s “How to Read a Poem” he directly relates the two. After reading his essay, I too, understand the comparison. By using this he makes understand poetry easier to people struggling to find the true meaning of a poem. When reading poetry, I use his three main rules to understand the work; without these rules comparing a pilgrim to a poetry reader understand poems would still be difficult.
The first part will focus on Pound’s poetic principle of Imagism “Direct treatment of the "thing" whether subjective or objective.” (Pound, 1918:3) It will introduce the Imagist Movement, Pound’s definition of “Image” and how does Williams develop his own way of presenting images on the basis of Pound’s. The second part will be mainly about Pound’s second and third principles of Imagism: the economy of words and the forms of free verse. Williams’ famous Imagist poem “This Is Just to Say” will be analyzed by its language and its form. The third part will focus on how to make sense of Imagist poems. There will be a close reading of Williams work “This Is Just to Say”, and a discussion of how Imagist poems provide their readers with an aesthetic pleasure and a sense of openness for interpretation.
Poetry and prose are entirely different from each other. But both can be written gracefully. Poetry tends to have more figurative language, by that we mean things that are not taken literally. Whereas Prose tends to have less figurative language. Poetry tends to be more focused on the importance of rhythm and meter, especially the older poetry.
Poetry can be used as a completely separate language on how someone can express him or herself, voice their opinions on issues, as well as create something a person can enjoy reading and writing. What makes poetry unique is that it takes ideas and puts them into simple language that the reader can understand and relate to through emotion and imagery. On the other hand, poetry in its form can also be a puzzle in how to interpret what the poem has to say or what the meaning behind or the subject of the poem. The construction, as well as the heart and soul that goes into the creation process of the poem, is what drives the poems to be as unique as the poet intends them to be. Two examples of this are Terrence Hayes and Harryette Mullen who are both amazing at what they do as poets as well as creating a ton of great and award-winning poetry collections which drew readers into reading and trying to interpret their poems.
Second person point of view provides a more didactic tone because the speaker is trying to reach the reader by incorporating them into the poem. This didactic tone continues as the speaker addresses the “everything” that surrounds the narrator and wants them to “[k]eep off” (Rich728). A didactic tone is effective in this moment because the
To which we can argue that both these terms can be have several interpretations. The associated imagery and symbolism in the play manifests Sophocles ideas to the reader which gets them involved in reading and understanding the play. In my answer below, I will try and construe these terms in the context of the play and explicate
In addition, the author extensively uses personification in this poem. It is worth noting that using personification in this scenario makes a sense of familiarity to the readers. Speaking in the tone of first person to call for help in person instead of a plain description of a siren can somehow arouse the empathy of the readers. The technique of enjambment accelerates such haste to make sure that readers can feel the ambient tone alongside the empathy of reading in first person. Thus, the enjambment makes the scenario vivid by adding hasty tone and personification.
Davies (1995) define it as the different existing possibilities of relating sentences' words to produce comprehensible structures which is well linked and well connected. Therefore, reading a text without having cohesion cause difficulty in reading, remove connection between words and the reader mix the ideas which cannot see what refers to what. Moreover, he argues that coherence and cohesion are connected to each other, in which a text without cohesion would not be coherent. Yan (1993) explores that cohesion promote reading and lessen confusion, it helps the readers to depend on the content and predicting the meanings of the
