In addition, he also uses repetition to create fluent yet unruffled, tragic feel for the reader. Throughout the poem, “The Raven”, Poe uses anaphora as a way that shows he is creating a mysterious setting that continues through the majority of the poem. For example, Poe repeats the word, “Nevermore” at the end of each line, to inform the reader of the great sorrow he feels, referring to the death of his love, drawing the reader in. He also repeats the line, “nothing more”. “Let my heart be still a moment and this mystery explore;— ’Tis the wind and nothing more!”.
Poetic mental pictures made in the reader 's brain claim to at least one of the physical faculties: visual, sound-related, olfactory, gustatory, natural, material, and sensation. Despite the fact that these are the fundamental significant pictures that overrun English poetry, poets for the most part utilize other sorts of imagery that are limited to specific themes. In truth, any theme in poetry can be related with certain imagery. In this way, nature, time, maturing, death, and numerous others constitute a boundless open arrangement of pictures that advance the substance
because of the verbs and adverbs and adjectives that he uses throughout the poem for example, “bleeding drops of red” (Whitman, “O Captain! My Captain!” ). This is only but one example from this poem. His use of verbs makes a very strong and impactful poem. He makes the reader feel their own emotions toward the characters he creates.
Hughes utilization of rhyme makes his poem come out lyrical and not too forced. Rhymes such as “To stand/On my two feet/And own the land.” draw a link between the two lines. These links place stress on the last words, ‘Stand’ and ‘Land’ making a relation. To stand and own land is one of Hughes definitions of freedom and because of his using of rhyming scheme he made the whole stanza memorable. When Hughes uses rhyme he makes the poem work as a continual build up, creating that tone of impatience that is felt in the poem.
The beginning stanzas are monologues of the siren. As the main subject of the stanzas, the song appears to be irresistibly attractive to the men, that it makes men jump over the board even if they see corpses where they are heading to. The footnote of the poem has clarified that this song is chanted
firstly, the poet said he was confused and later he becomes organized after having come in contact with nature , here he used contrast, also through the use of contrast we are able to see the Daffodils as better dancers than the waves. The poet employs the use of comparison to create rich emotional picture and to show the level of the topic being discussed. “I wandered lonely as a cloud” (line 1) the poet compares his random movement to that of a cloud that is floating on high over valleys and hills, he also simile comparing the wondering of a man to a cloud drifting through the sky. The poet links the dance of the Daffodils to the shining stars above across the sky: ‘the milky way’. He uses overstatement to emphasis and greatness; “A host of golden Daffodils ten thousand saw I at a glance”.
(lines 4, 5, 6, 16) He also adds to the poem by introducing a new stanza to the poem. By replacing the word “dancing” with “golden” Wordsworth introduces colour into the poem for the first time. The introduction of colour opens up new dimensions in the poem and adds a vitality that the original version of the poem lacked. In his essay, “Orchestra and the Golden Flower: A Critical Interpretation of the Two Versions of Wordsworth 's 'I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud”, Harvey Peter Sucksmith argues: “ 'I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud ' is that archetype of psychic order, harmony, completeness, even of the integrated Self which has sometimes been called the mandala” (page 155) The mandala, meaning ‘magic circle’, is frequently depicted as dancing and is often related to the stars and flowers. Mandala’s often take the form of a flower The flower is most often golden in colour; the flower or star of the mandala often plays a central role, much like the “golden daffodils” in this poem.
Weather conditions can make people vulnerable to the effects experienced. Examples of his hardships transformed into poetry can be seen with, “The Elements of San Joaquin Valley”, Too many tamales, “Where Sparrows Work Hard”,. Although his theme is visible in many poems, one in particular is, “The Drought” recognizes and conveys the hardships that were faced. Several poetic devices were used to aid the noticeable theme, such as simile, personification and hyperbole are used in order to successfully convey the powerful theme. Gary Soto uses personification for readers to relate to and to
Donne And Geography As A Hyperbole Something that John Donne continually does successfully in his poetry is using an altered reality via an extended metaphor to make seemingly complex, yet simple arguments. The motif of geography and mapmaking is one that persists in Donne’s poems even as he and they evolve from a secular tone to a more serious, religion oriented one in the latter years of his life. Much like his employment of the eroticism in both secular and religious poems, Donne uses cartography to create a paralleled understanding of reality and the abstract. He chooses to evoke geography and mapmaking as much as he does in his poetry because the illusions of maps and provide the kind of emphasis of space and distance that he requires for his visions of love and the metaphysical world. “The Good Morrow” is one of Donne’s earliest poems that uses geography as a tool for emphasis.
Summary When we compare the William Wordsworth to others poets Coleridge, John Keats and Shah Latif Bhatai, we have seen that every writer has own style and thoughts. Their poetry is different to William Wordsworth’s poetry. John Keats poetry was on truth, joys, beauty, life, death and also wrote on nature. When Keats writes about nature then he writes in two ways: first, Keats shows a true beauty of nature and second, he shows and tells about relief and happiness about nature can bring. Coleridge thinks that nature is that to be a preserved, in his poem he expressed that nature is a something mysterious, spiritual and imaginative way of happiness and nature lead us toward fancy.
