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. “Here Yet Be Dragons” certainly demonstrates this idea. When I first read this poem, I was very confused, especially by the first sentence because it makes no sense in today’s world. so many languages have fallen off of the edge of the world into the dragon’s mouth. (Clifton, pg 132) However, this is purposeful.
The novella The Turn of the Screw by Henry James is a spooky masterpiece that uses repetition throughout the story. Beauty is an example of a word that is continually used, so it is memorable to the story. Whether James is referring to the children, the governess, the master, or their property, beauty is an adjective that is frequently used, so this suggests that looks are important throughout this story. The governess is a young women who radiates with beauty and is infatuated with the master because of his handsomeness (most likely the reason she took the job). Of the children, the governess first meets the little girl, Flora.
The poet's intention with the use of celestial metaphor characterize Juliet with love and beauty.

Byron was an English poet and leading figure of Romanticism. "She Walks in Beauty" is a short lyrical poem written in 1813 by Lord Byron and is one of his most famous works.

Many volumes that he wrote were also based on his live and the events he went through.
Romanticism glorified art, poetry, music, and nature. Two examples of Romantic poets are Edgar Allan Poe and Emily Dickinson, whose writing exemplifies the Romantic theme of individuality, or the divergence from traditional societal norms and beliefs. The poems “A Dream Within A Dream,” by Edgar Allan Poe, and “Much Madness is Divinest Sense,” by Emily Dickinson perfectly display this theme of individuality. Within these poems, one can see both the similarities and differences regarding the theme, numerous elements of Romanticism such as individualism, imagination, and insight, the impact the theme has on societal norms, and the timelessness of the theme by being incorporated into modern day culture. To begin, there are many similarities to be found within “A Dream Within A Dream” and “Much Madness Is Divinest Sense”.
The verses structure and poetic technique notable, particularly in the use of a refrain of ‘thou art fair’, enclosing the love comparisons and giving them further significance and intensity. The framing effect is furthered by the addition of ‘all’ to the end refrain, giving a sense of conclusion to the bridegrooms feelings. The difference in description of the first comparison ‘thou hast doves’ eyes within thy locks’ compared with the rest of the passage, where the body part appears first, and the metaphor second, is also interesting, as if the bridegroom speech’s structure develops after the first comparison and his way to express his love becomes more concrete. Further inversions can be seen in the order of features described. Gianni Barbiero suggests the order is ‘poetic, not logical’.
One of the most prominent poems written during the post-war era was Warning by Jenny Joseph. Joseph’s most popular poem, Warning, expresses her excitement and terrify process of maturing. Her satire poem became so popular among the ladies who found themselves relating to the poem, under those circumstances, they invented The Red Hat Society. As a matter of fact, The Red Hat Society is a group of women who greet middle age with humor, amusement, and energy, about the poem. Therefore the poem includes specific features from the post-war era, such as being against the Neo-Romanticism and writing with a realistic and reflective diction.
Hate Equals Jealousy In the poems, "To Helen" by Edgar Allan Poe and “Helen” by Hilda Doolittle, both creators depict their differentiating perspectives of Helen of Troy by exclaiming how her beauty is a life or death situation by the use of figurative language throughout the two poems. In "To Helen", Poe adores Helen and exclaims on her as a person who can charm anyone by her beauty. He underscores her looks through symbolism and he portrays her "hyacinth hair", and "classic face", as he analyzes her excellence to that of Ancient Greece, his home. It's obvious that Poe respects Helen, as this poem gives off an impression of being a vow to her. Poe proceeds with, "Like those Nicean barks of yore that gently, o'er a perfumed sea, the weary

The hook that opened the paragraph was interesting, but further in, Brecht’s poem was introduced then left without sufficient analysis or an explicit statement of the theme that I would be connecting to the memoir. The said memoir is also introduced without enough analysis, and the introduction overall lacks any clear statement of theme, although it does state that the themes from each piece connect in some vague way. The methods of improvement for these aspects of my essay are similar to those already said - the addition of transitions will make the essay less choppy to read, and planning early in the writing process will help with the flow and meshing of ideas, as well as clear statements as to topic and
