“Bishop’s carefully judged use of language aids the reader to uncover the intensity of feeling in her poetry.” Elizabeth Bishop’s superb use of language in her introspective poetry allows the reader to grasp a better understand of feeling in her poetry. Bishop’s concentration of minor details led to her being referred to as a “miniaturist”, however this allows her to paint vivid imagery, immersing the reader in her chosen scenario. Through descriptive detail, use of metaphor, simile, and many other excellently executed stylistic devices, the reader can almost feel the emotion being conveyed. Bishop clearly demonstrates her innate talent to communicate environments at ease.
The poem stays true to Oliver’s general writing style of relating to the natural world and, based on the sentimental and peaceful images throughout the poem, is clear to have been influenced by the stream of consciousness she had when writing the poem. Mary Oliver is clearly the speaker in the poem and often uses second person to directly address the reader, thus drawing the reader in and causing he or she to feel personally connected to both the poem and the poet. This poem is structured into twelve sections, each with different diction, imagery, syntax and tone. The combination of these twelve messages create a final takeaway for the reader; that although the presence of the past is important to acknowledge, the only way to move on from the negativity in your past, is to connect to the natural world and find
Anne Bradstreet states that “when she came into this country she found a new world and new manners, at which her heart rose in resistance” ( Baym, 2013, Pg. 110). Which is meaning that she has never felt so free and felt like she belonged. She believed that god has sent her through her path. Bradstreet wrote poetry to please her father when she was a young child. Bradstreet wrote 'The Prologue ' which is based on Greeks, Christianity, and psychology.
Adah’s experiences, values, and interests all come together through this single Dickinson poem, and her character in the book is even still further developed. It is yet another instance where Adah’s love for poetry allows her to connect her emotions and explain to the reader truly how she feels, because verbal expression was never Adah’s strong
She wanted to believe that her hardships were only temporary, so she looked to story book characters as her friends and a refuge from reality. She is very good at vivid description and dialogue as well as her prose- using ordinary language without meter and making it sound beautiful. It creates a mental image in the mind of the reader. She also describes things abnormally, which makes the reader think of whatever is being discussed in a different light. It is very colorful
The author had a great way of showing her feelings in her poetry writing. She urges her reader to “enjoy the word play” (Mora, About the Text) while they are reading and writing about her work. She uses human reactions such as; “she sighs clouds” (Mora, line 5)” head thrown back (Mora, line 6)” and “spins herself to
Linda uses philological techniques to keep her audience engaged in her fragments and she is able to get her point across to others. With Linda 's writing style, she demonstrates with writing assignment examples, this way others can relate to the information that she is giving. Linda uses this technique because she believes that it helps readers to see if they can relate themselves to the situations that she is describing. While going over the readings I believe that Mary and Linda carry some of the same characteristics when it comes to reaching out their audience for writing. It is very important to make the readers feel like they are actually in it.
Humans as a race are slowly forgetting their roots. In the Poem “Remember” the author Joy Harjo uses examples of literary devices such as repetition, symbolism, and personification throughout her essay. She does so to convey her message that people need to remember what they have and not to take things for granted. Her effective use of these devices helps persuade the reader to agree with her views.
Sarah Kay seemed not to be completely engaging because her poems were confusing. She defined what poetry is to her, and she explained her past with poetry and what she is doing now to give everyone else the opportunities to discover poetry like she did in high school. Her presentation was visual because whenever she talked, she used body language as an example her hands showed what her words were saying. She talked for a prolonged period of time. She did not use much pauses and it was all recited.
Life has been and will continue to be full of changes. From the time humans are born, their bodies, their minds, and their surroundings will be at a constant transition. It is inevitable. Change can be sad and hard to go through, but it should never be something that someone is ashamed of. Lisa Parker conveys change frequently in her poem “Snapping Beans” through imagery, similes, internal monologue, repetition, and foreshadowing.
“Each house-hunting trip I’ve made to the countryside has been fraught with two emotions: elation at the prospect of living closer to nature and a sense of absolute doom at what might befall me in the backwoods” (White 1064). In her essay, “Black Women and the Wilderness, Evelyn White describes her contradictory feelings about nature, and throughout her text, her experiences display a very complex perspective of nature. Raymond Williams, in his article, “Nature” describes the word ‘nature’ as the most complex word in language (Williams 219). When referring nature, people generally think of it representing something of peace, comfort, and a place where most can feel safe, almost as if it were a home. White revises our understanding of nature
