This quite literally means that the poet has trouble recognizing or simply cannot recognize anything that is absurd visually. Another portion of the text that is worth analyzing is whether or not the poet is a real person or a generalization about all or most poets. All of the lines in the poem use general text and never label a specific person. What’s interesting about the text is that without the title it would be nearly impossible to distinguish whether or not the person the poem is about is a poet or not. The way the text allows the reader to find a figurative meaning to the poem is by being vague enough and
Aristotle, in his Poetics considers poetry a mimes form that has language, rhythm and lyrics. Moreover, in those days, any literary piece of work could be written in lyrics. The using of delicate forms of transmitting the message distinguishes poetry from other forms of literary texts. (Billy Mills,2008) Samuel Taylor Coledrige has a famous quote: "I wish our clever young poets would remember my homely definitions of prose and poetry; that is, prose - words in their best order; poetry - the best words in their best order." Well, I do not think there could be something more added, as long as we are all aware of the fact that poetry is a fine art that requires not only a developed vocabulary, but also a brilliant mind to put all those words in a specific order.
Without writing, you wouldn’t be reading this. Without writing, we would live in the present and never know the happenings of the past. The message of the poem “Here Yet Be Dragons” by Lucille Clifton is to imagine a world without poetry and numerous other forms of writing. She uses specific contrast, line breaks and metaphors to prove this point. Something I’ve learned during this poetry unit is that poems can be anything and everything, but every poetic device, line break, and word is chosen for a specific purpose.
Poetry is used as a completely separate language on how someone can prompt him or herself, voice their opinions on topics, as well as generate something a person can enjoy reading and writing. What formulates poetry exclusive is that it takes ideas and puts them into humble linguistic that the bookworm can understand and relate to via emotion and imagery. It can also use techniques such as personification, apostrophe, repetition, rhythm etc. in order to form a comprehensible and innovative poem. However, poetry in its form can also be a mystery in how to interpret what the poem’s involvement is or what the connotation behind or the subject of the poem.
Many poets write poems to express themselves or convey a message. This is because writing things down has been a way of tracking or relaying information to others or oneself at a later time. The themes of these poems change not only with whom the poet is but, what they are writing about. Undoubtedly poetry such as Epics, Romances, and Ballads are used to express themes due to each type having a plethora of ways to convey the author’s message. Epic is narratively long poems that tell about a heroic feat or event that are important to the poet’s culture(Fogie).
Poetry is a powerful tool in that it enables a poet to express his or her ideas and feelings in a unique manner depending on the poetic style and device he or she employs. Poems can cover a myriad of topics from personal encounters to one’s reactions to experiences; through these narratives one can reflect his or her own ethnic identity or another the ethnic identity of another person. Ethnical identity refers to one’s belong to a group a due to common connections such as culture, language, or religion. In my poem, “The Mosque” I narrate my feelings and perspective while touring a mosque for my world religion class shortly after a string of ISIS supported terrorist attacks; I strived to convey the anxiety and uncertainty that I felt due

Being the chief faculty of conveying personal feelings so important for Romantic literature, the lyric poem was regarded as the most essentially poetic of all genres. Distinct from the conventional love poems of previous ages, the Romantic lyrics were mainly centred on the characters who shared recognizable traits with the poet. They often closely accorded the experiences and states of mind expressed by the lyric speaker with the facts of the lyricist’s living and the personal confessions in his letters and journals. The most favoured of the lyric poems was the ode of irregular form which allowed the Romantic poets to convey their strongest sentiments. The Romantic odes began in an intensely personal impulse and moved toward reflective or philosophical resolutions.
Poetry is a subtle form of writing, and reviewing poetry requires a deep understanding of the elements that constitute a poem. Poetry allows us to express feelings and emotions that are inside us all. It can also be put into any of these broad sub-genres: narrative, dramatic, or lyric. Often times people associate poetry with a short, and confusing group of words that usually leaves people scratching their heads, but surprisingly a poem can also be a favorite song. Songs are considered poetry as well because it gives people the ability to connect emotionally with the lyrics that are being sung.
This collection continues the reflective notes of her Collected Poems, sustaining a meditation on the nature of poetry and the other arts, especially music, and love, faith, joy, sorrow, friendship childhood and the passage of time. The preoccupation with music is dominant so to speak and there is a strong religious element in her affirmation of the artist as an instrument of God’s glory. The poems are entirely accessible, often intensely human in their vulnerality, and set firmly within the context of gratitude explicit in the book’s title. This underlying sense of joy, despite a real darkness that cannot be ignored, beautifully ignores the sequence “A Happy Death” , about the death of 57 of one of the poet’s friends , a Dominican priest. These four poems cover the same ground and ought to be repetitious merely, but mysteriously they are not - indeed they are very moving.
