Alfred Prufrock” by T.S Eliot, the audience is introduced to an extremely lonely man who has a hard time with making decisions in fear of failure. There are literary and modernistic devices such as imagery, similes, allusions and stream of consciousness used to express the themes of this poem. From the title and the beginning of this poem the audience is lead to believe that this poem is a love story, however, early on there is a change in the topic and the poem focuses on death from that point forward. The message that is being conveyed in this poem is not to waste your time in life. This message is very clear because Prufrock is a perfect example as he wasted a lot of his time by not truly living to his full
Living in a society today makes it hard for many teens and kids our age. We all struggle and stress about this one thing, being unique or different. This is such a huge thing now because they’re are so much people out there who are willing to go to every extent to try be unique, or there are people out there who would go to every extent to just satisfy people. We all struggle with this one problem but yet no one really cares talks about it. In this essay I will be analyzing the poet Julio Noboa Polanco with his poem “identity”, how different he is to other poets, and lastly how he used his poetic elements with his poem.
Though, Julio only made one poem, but with that one poem, it shows so many about his writing and literature skills. From reading all these poet’s work, it was very hard to choose which one to talk about. But for some reason Julio Noboa Polanco stood out more. In his poem “Identity” talks about our society now. Most people nowadays are trying their hardest to stand out, not caring if they're the ugliest or the

The point of this inquiry is not to consider whether the readers of “Mending Wall” prefer one of the two neighbors more than the other. The point is to inquire whether Robert Frost does—and what his preference says about him. The speaker in a poem often reveals more about himself than he does about the person of whom or to whom he is speaking. The reader of “Mending Wall” discovers more about the narrator than about the neighbor he is talking about, and by extension, the reader learns something about the author of the poem. When a writer picks up a pen, he necessarily opens an artery of his heart, whether he wishes to or not.
At first, an external source, such as an object in nature or a personal experience, influences and inspires the poet so deeply, that an overflow of emotions is created. Even though this experience provides the poet a basis for his poetry, Wordsworth doesn’t believe sensibility alone should dictate poetry. At this stage, the poet is too overwhelmed by his feelings; he is unable to evaluate his emotions and articulate them rationally. A certain amount of time must pass in order to distance himself from the original experience and mental state along with it so that the poet can focus and convey the emotions needed for his poetry. Then the poet goes through a calm recollection and evaluation of the incident and his emotions.
Like, Alfred North Whitehead has said that, "We think in generalities but we live in detail." To live in details we have to be knowledgeable, critique what the poets present to us, have information about the history of things to comprehend the context of poetry or any other literature. Many poems are open to interpretation. However, a lot of poems are not and are overtly political. A reader is likely to profit from some knowledge of the poet’s previous days and epoch.
The laconic messages make it difficult to interpret and each reading may bring new discoveries, provoking readers to wonder and thrive to decipher the poetic message. For example, another critic, Miller finds a peculiar ambivalence in the first verse “This was a Poet-It is That”, which she considers could be replaced by “It is He”, while others state that the phrase “It is that” is proof of Dickinson’s “definition of the poet as a nearly suprapersonal asexual force” (Passion, 324). Thus, the line can have these two readings. The metaphoric ambiguity, irregular shape and lighthearted tones are a trademark of Dickinson’s poetry, though it is difficult to stick to a fixed interpretation or to analyze it in a didactical way. The third and last poem I wish to discuss is “I felt a Funeral, in my Brain” (poem 340), a self-reflective poem of crisis which reveals an ars poetica.
Arnold works hard to make his friends. He sticks up to himself and doesn’t bully others even though he has been many times. Another time Arnold is kind to his friend is when he is talking about Rowdy, “It makes me think of Rowdy. I missed him so much. I wanted to find him, and hug him and beg him to forgive me for leaving(217).” He and Rowdy have been friends for a long time and that is because Arnold appreciates him.
