The last consonant in both words are the same and the vowels before are also the same. This is an example of an end rhyme. Also, this example includes an alliteration. “Two-toned”, in Stanza 10, is an example of alliteration. The repetition of the consonant “T” makes this possible.
Memories are important treasures to hold onto as time goes by. In the poem “Old Memories” written by Carrie Williams, the subject is old memories. The speaker of the poem is someone who is reminiscing their sweet old memories. The speaker’s tone towards the subject is nostalgic.

By compressing the language Dickinson created her ultimate and unique signature. However, the downside is that this made her poems appear as a riddle to the reader. On the other hand, this kind of ambiguous writing helped her in keeping the reader engaged. Moreover, compressing her words within her poetry gave her the ability to write words with multiple meanings.
The rhetorical device used in this stanza it was rhyme. It all help the stanza sound helpless like there want no other way. Like in “To lie before us like a land of dreams, so various, so beautiful, so new,” (Matthew Arnold stanza 4).The quote mean to be hurt and not to have another help cause it hopeless. In the poem Dover Beach, many rhetorical devices it helps shape the theme of the poem. The theme of the poem is that there is good and bad in life it can go either way anytime in life.
Moncrieff’s translation preserves the medial caesura of the original with backslashes. His translation is also in a vertical form arranged by line, similar to the original epic. Francis B. Gummere’s translation of Beowulf is concerned with maintaining a similar style and tone to the original, although he is willing to sacrifice a few choice words from the original to do so. That indicates a looser formal equivalence philosophy. Gummere was careful in maintaining the alliteration built into Beowulf, most exemplified by the first five lines which contain ample alliteration.
Oned biographer, Arnold Rampersad, even went as far as calling Hughes “.. the most representative black American writer” This statement is made to ring true through the literary works Harlem  and PhD. In Harlem , the speaker reflects upon the lies told in the past, the “old kicks in the back”, and the times he/she was told to “be patient” in the face adversity, and racism. The tone is rather hostile as the speaker details the ways in which racism impacts his/her life. “Sure we remember” ‘We remember the job we never had, Never could get And can’t have now Because we’re colored.” the speaker goes on to detail the daily increase of the pricing on goods like bread and cigarettes. The speaker goes on, and suddenly, the tone shifts in the direction of sadness.
CRA: Anzaldua Borderlands In her poem “Borderlands,” Gloria Anzaldua strategically exposes readers to the true form of the Borderlands region as she conveys the internal incongruity that is rife with this state. As she characterizes the nature of the Borderlands, extending the idea of the Borderlands from a geographical region to an extensive social phenomenon, Anzaldua emulates an experience that is shared by many; conquered by fear. Anzaldua cogently employs the use of distinct structural elements within her poem as a form of illustrative depiction in order to express to readers the strenuous relationship between the inhabitants and their environment. The essence of this relationship is expressed through the internal conflict, both within
Both poems explore the idea of renewed hope that relationships bring either by starting a new one or ending an old one, while employing different stanza length, and creating different moods in the minds of the reader. The most obvious difference in poetic usage by both authors is mood. In “I’ll Open the Window” by Anna Swir, the mood is dark with the use of quotes such as “I am an animal.” and “I hear bones grind, I see our two skeletons.” These quotes from the poem contribute to the feeling that the speaker now detests the relationship between the speaker and her past loved one. She
The first time reading through a poem, literary devices such as symbolism, figurative language, hyperboles or oxymorons can throw a reader off. However, after the reader analyzes and truly understands the poem, these devices can add more depth and understanding, allowing the readers to see deeper inside the poet’s mind. In his poem, ‘The Broken Heart’, John Donne incorporates specific devices to portray that love is an all-consuming, vicious monster that can ruin you. In ‘The Broken Heart’, John Donne’s descriptive vocabulary, explaining the way the speaker’s heart was shattered beyond repair, forces the reader to imagine his or her heart as splintered or crushed as Donne’s. In other words, Donne uses rich imagery to add tangibility to his piece and aide the reader in accurately picturing what’s being discussed.
Trethewey immediately uses imagery to set the scene inviting your senses to help illustrate the image she has already relayed. This helped depict a more in-depth image of her poem “elegy”. After reading this poem several times, to build understanding, and break down literary elements; I came to the conclusion that Trethewey emphasizes the struggle to find balance. The balance between metaphor and symbolism, increasing throughout the entire poem showing battle between connotation and detonation. The struggle in which she used to connotation to portray the bigger picture, but also balanced out by denotation to show the subliminal messages of the relationship shared between the narrator’s father and herself.
In Moore’s poems, the syllabic count is one, three, nine, six, and eight. One last example of differences is Moore’s poem has a rhyme scheme while Bishop was written in free verse. Moore’s rhyme scheme was, a, a,b,b,c and was repeated through the poem. Some of the rhyming words included; wade, jade, keeps, heaps, and the sun and spun. These are just some of the various ways these two poems are similar and different in their form and
She uses nature as a figurative language, where something as simple as a flower can be code for something deeper within her. With all of her uses of her nature, her poems often have a mythical, almost spiritual, vibe about them. Her poems were also dismal and heavy. A poet with a highly similar style to Sylvia 's is Anne Sexton, who just so happens to have been a friend of Sylvia 's. The two met in 1958, while studying under the poet Robert Lowell.
