Throughout both poems, the writer makes use of these poetic devices in similar and contrasting ways to relay to the reader his inner battle with the concept of death. Within both
Poetry in its simplest form still contains great value and often has a hidden meaning that is not initially apparent. One subject that plagues many poets is death. Death is viewed in a negative manner and very rarely has any aspect of hope. Furthermore, poets treat death with different values and viewpoints. William Wordsworth is one poet who focuses about death in many of his poems.
This era was the First World War, the Great War, or the War to End All Wars. Wilfred Owen’s poem The Next War, was written from his own perspective. The imagery in the poem was actual circumstances he had to cope with when on the front in 1917, during World War One. The tone of the poem is reasonably miserable, but somehow Owen has captured one of the most sorrowful events of our lives, death, and turned it into a tolerable situation, where death is not the enemy; rather the companion. Throughout the poem, there are continuous references to “Death”.
In Marks perspective he is stranded on this planet with no help. The author described the planet as a dust bowl which enhances the reader’s experience of the atmosphere and situation. Another literary device that the author uses is a rhetorical question. Mark asked “But who cares?” then after answers his own question “I just need to survive for four years”. All these examples show the effectiveness of the author uses of literary devices.
As the man progressed through his journey with his son, his realization of death strengthened the bond between him and the boy. As the boy grew up with the changing reality of his father’s growing sickness, he began to accept the fact that he would soon be on his own and have to undergo the desolate world by himself. Both underwent momentous transformations through the course of the novel. The man, whose sole purpose was to protect his son, soon came to terms with his death and sought to bestow knowledge onto his son necessary for survival. The boy, who was extremely young towards the beginning of the novel, gradually begins to mature under the growing strain of his father’s forthcoming death.
Two scholarly writers brilliantly conveyed nature in their own opinion, an essay written by John Miller called, ”The Calypso Borealis," and a poem by William Wordsworth called, "I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud.” Both authors created work that acquires their idea of the beauty of nature while showing their compassion and love for nature. They each endured the essence in their own way. Each author also used their memory as descriptive imagery to creative share the scenery and amazement of their experience. Each individual has their own personal opinion about nature and how they decide to express their feelings can be diverse, and both authors, John Muir and William Wordsworth, expressed their compassion and love for nature in their own way. Once the piece of literature begins, the reader begins feeling captivated in the imagery that the author created to be envisioned.
I believe the author wants us to realize how helpless he was in the situation and how he couldn't help out but could only watch. From a reader's point of view it is almost like we are there reliving these devastating moments with the author. Most of all the reader wants us to realize no matter how much he wanted to help or prevent these other soldiers from suffering he couldn't. He doesn't want to be looked at as neglectful or as a bed person but he wants us to know he feel terrible and these tragedies are something he thinks about often. 4- ‘DEATH BE NOT PROUD” In the poem “ Death Be Not Proud” the author wants us to view death as something that is not bad but almost like a reward to eternal or after life .
Connect this to the other lines 1-12 in this poem, it is evident that unless he can write the magnificence of nature down before he dies, which may be anytime, love and fame in the world means nothing to him. The tone in the last 2-3 lines shifts compared to the other lines. It becomes uncommitted to matters, such as high aspirations. His relationship with his craft exists solely due to nature and its unchallenged beauty, and Keats’s craft’s purpose is to write on nature’s charm. It is a necessary link on the poet’s part.
There is no mistake in diagnosing the death-complex at the back of his mind. The poets have often beguiled themselves with the idea that death is not fearful, as to be slain by death is quite easy. Death is the world of mystical poems has often been subjected to divine adulation. Tagore is no exception of the rule. The soul of a mystic
Barth roland deals with the term of intertextuality as a concept and not as a term in his article “Death of the Author”. Barth was able to destroy the origin of the meaning, as the text consists of the previous text elements( citations and citations).Also, he considers writing is a destruction of every sound and origin . ( Deborah Cartmell, Imelda Whelehan, 2007: P107) Mikhail Bakhtin argues that the text is the interaction of the dialogue "with the ego of someone else" which means that our speech is only the discourse of the other in the language of the other, it is like many scientists and critics denies the authenticity of the text, speech and absolute ownership. The text and the speech is a result of historical and social interactions except the news, realities and so on Bakhtin puts the text in the border of the history and the community, viewing them as texts read by the writer, and unify with them when write them.
