Modernist poetry is the affirmed break from the traditional literary subjects, styles, etc., specifically the nineteenth century Romantics and symbolist precursors. The modernists valued the construction of the literacy styles they sought to transform. An example of these literacy subjects is, compressed lyrics that would be used in a foreign, but curious verse. Additionally, modernist poetry emphasized the ideals of being marked by free verses and symbolism that contained visual creations. Along with their ideals and values, modernist poets believed that the late nineteenth century and early twentieth century has the ability to reinvent and revivify a language based on a variety of personal experiences.
This work is considered a major step in the creation of the cubist style. The work depicts five nude prostitutes from a brothel Picasso frequented. Figure 2 shows a work similar to that of what Picasso would have encountered before he created his work Les Demoiselles d 'Avignon.

These words create the soft sounds like what we would see at the sea and that was Neruda’s goal. His vision was not only that we can imagine the sea by the sounds used, but to physically see it with our own eyes by the structure of the poem. The structure of the poem underlies the secrets that Neruda creates for the reader. Furthermore, the poem consists of three stanzas and are fairly balanced, therefore, the poem is able to flow left to right identical to a sea’s waves. Furthermore, Neruda compiles the first two stanzas to have two periods while the third stanza only has one.
In his poem I explain some things , he even directly asks “Federico from under the earth”, to remember the peaceful life they led before the war. This poem is a turning point in Neruda’s life, since he explains why he can no longer “write about Lilacs”(1) or “metaphysics filled with poppies”(3), after having seen “the blood on the streets” in Spain. The lilacs are a symbol of Neruda’s previous poems about love and other physically beautiful things. By the use of rhetorical questions at the beginning of the poem “You will ask[…]?, Neruda tries to make the reader feel as if he can sense what they are thinking, making him and his readers feel like one. The poem contrast Neruda’s peaceful life in Madrid with life after the outbreak of the Spanish civil war.
Originally, the poet utilizes a biblical tone that leads to an epic and even mystical feeling, for the sound of the trumpet marks the commencement of the distribution of the entities that “Jehovah” (Schmitt 179) introduces to the world. Nonetheless, as the poem reaches its termination, the mood develops into a lament, as Neruda witnesses the rapine of his country. Similarly, the structure of the work suffers transformations: the first stanza consists of the creation of the planet, the birth of different countries, the dictatorship in South and Central America, and the idea of success of the American business. However, the next
Picasso creatively uses principles like color, space, shape, balance, form, composition in this artwork. Additionally this artwork showcases concepts that stems from cubism, surrealism and primitivism. Forms look flat and are cut presented geometrically, which make for an interesting composition in the scheme of the painting. It is also through these factors and the subjects that Picasso articulates his story. Briefly this artwork shows 2 fisherman, one holds a spear, and the other looks over the side of the boat and holds the spear with his foot.
Picasso had many drawings that indirectly supported men to be the superior and wiser. For example, in his La vie painting he drew a naked woman standing beside a man who is wearing underwear, as on the other side there was another woman who was holding a baby. One can judge Picasso as a man who looked at women as sexual objects or mothers depending on what his paintings were about, especially this one. Therefore, one can realize how Picasso’s art has supported the inferiority of
He created an important example at every stage of his career from the classical works of the 1920s to the works produced in occupied Paris during the 1940s. Guernica (1937) by Picasso is one of the most famous paintings of all time. The painting reveals the importance of Spain, war, and most of all bullfighting. Picasso’s connection to his homeland of Spain is evident in Guernica, named after a small country town in north Spain that was the target of a terror bombing exercise by the
Love and romance are a common genre found in poetry, where one is able to express their true emotions toward a particular person or thing. Love itself has come to represent both the emotional and personal connection between two lovers. Pablo Neruda, a renowned Chilean poet, explores the concept of love and separation in the form of the poem, “I can write the saddest verses.” In this poem, Neruda communicated his longing for his past love, whom he still loved at the time. While the words of the poem create an effect and feeling in the reader, which is related to the sad aspects of losing relationships, more can be uncovered about Neruda.
