She repeats the words “to you” (19,20) as well as “only you” (23) to bring out the aspect that the siren is speaking to us, the readers, which deepens the effect of her tempting us into her trap. The missing rhyme scheme and meter does not only bring out the repetition Atwood places in the poem but also makes her emphasis on enjambment more profound. Comparatively, the excessive enjambment as well as the lack of meter and rhyme deliver the effect of the poem being read like a story and accentuates the intensity and suspense to the meaning of the poem which is the deadly song the siren sings to lure in her
By nature, shorter poems are more densely packed with cues and devices because authors cannot express their intended message over the sweeping length of a poem but rather they must be more concise and creative. A poet may write a shorter poem to juxtapose a simple surface message to a more meaningful deeper message. Thus, complexity and artistic value are unrelated to length, but rather, they are developed through masterful writing. “Good Times” by Lucille Clifton embodies the double-edged sword of complex storytelling within a short poem, as she identifies the speaker 's occasional good memories to develop an image of the speaker’s typical abject life. The short poem is crafted with patterns of repetition, for there are so few lines to fit meaningful insight into.
Another portion of the text that is worth analyzing is whether or not the poet is a real person or a generalization about all or most poets. All of the lines in the poem use general text and never label a specific person. What’s interesting about the text is that without the title it would be nearly impossible to distinguish whether or not the person the poem is about is a poet or not. The way the text allows the reader to find a figurative meaning to the poem is by being vague enough and
“ Sarah Cynthia Sylvia Stout would not take the garbage out” is mainly hyperbole. “From New York to the golden gate is an example because the garbage doesn’t actually go across the country the author of this poem said it to add a funny example to the poem, to show what happens when you do not do your chores . It has no personification unlike “Song for an April dusk”. “Song for an April dusk” is more personification. One example is “ Dusk's eyes a-mist with tears”.
I appreciate how literature has formed the person I am today, and I poured out these feelings in my essay. Adding a quote to my final essay was recommended to me by my teacher. This helped improve my essay a great deal, and I am glad that I listened to this advice. However, I could have integrated a quote into my essay in a more effective manner. Nevertheless, I am proud of how the paper turned out.
In triad K, I have been able to reflect on my literacy journey, create amazing study habits, and learn more about rhetoric. In addition, I have learned how I can use rhetoric in everyday life. Although I know I still have not achieved the complex writing, I strive to get to, I still make use of what I already know and just try to build on it. Writing essays such as these and the others we have done in the class have really helped transform me into a better writer. We talked about literacy sponsors and had to write a literacy narrative, where I reflected my growth in writing, and created goals on how I would like to improve.
When it comes to improving these skills, I believe that the only way to do that is to practice and work on incorporating those skills into each essay. I will not become comfortable with those skills unless I force myself to use them. I also found myself struggling to meet the word count requirement, I would easily be able to write a good portion of my essay, but I struggled to stretch and add to my ideas to reach the length requirement. In order to improve this, I need to further develop and elaborate on my ideas in each essay. Prior to AP Language I really enjoyed writing, but during that class my love and ease of writing went away
There are several different styles of writing and learning, and if an individual knows their style of each, it can help them improve on their learning and writing skills. My method of writing is free-writing, I tend to start writing, and not stop until I finish. Similarly, I tend to learn best by absorbing a great deal of information at once, then going back and processing it. My learning and writing styles greatly influence each other, with my learning style helping improve my writing style. Since I was a child, everything I wrote was done using a free-writing technique.
Moreover, she would of set more specifically how she wanted the writing assignment because some students wrote sentences that looked like they were formulated and others wrote it like a paragraph form. I personally, liked the paragraph form because it showed the students ideas more developed and their writing skills. Finally, I like how the writing assignment ended with a drawing and
I want to push myself to write outside of the class to practice what have we learned until I know I will not and cannot forget it. Another goal is to better understand the rules of grammar, even though I am mostly able to implement them, I am still slightly unsure of when they are used. My third goal would be to clearly communicate my thoughts in the form of an essay. I have always enjoyed writing,
Freedom For All! Alice Paul and Carrie Chapman Catt showed very similar objectives to a very similar cause. Both Paul and Catt wanted women’s suffrage, but both had a different point of view. Catt believed in a low-key strategy, but Paul believed in a more public protest ways. Catt showed that even a low-key strategy can prove to be more safe, and just as convincing as protesting was and probably even more.
warning.” This helps the piece by giving non-human objects human qualities. A metaphor is used in this piece because it says “but they bloomed without thinking besides the others, the ones that emerged from the underworld” I believe this is a metaphor because it is using the underworld as a playoff of the dirt and soil that lies beneath them. It helps the vision of the piece develop.
