Diahann Carroll was able to bring her rich, gentle voice to a well known piece of music and make it her own, through subtle acting and a powerful emotional connection to the words she was singing. In the beginning of the song, Carroll has a low volume with a gentle voice.

If her projection staggered any in the quieter beginning of the song she made up for it with superb and unique diction.

Some examples of literary devices that Atwood uses to have this effect on readers are imagery, anaphora, diction, tone, figurative language and irony, and these barely scratch the surface of how many literary devices are used in the poem. All of these literary devices are what makes Atwood’s poem as good as it seems. Imagery is one of the major literary devices used throughout this poem because of its drastic effect it can have on the reader.

In this essay, I will discuss the importance of Orfeo as a minstrel as well as the crucial nature of the harp throughout the poem. I will also discuss how his musical talent has a means of enhancing his ability to persuade those he encounters with particular reference to lines 417-473. i i i i i i i i i i i From the early onset of the poem, Orfeo is introduced as a king in England.
