The writer puts this effect on the reader to stimulate senses of idea or emotion. The poem is also called “Oranges” so it shows how the poem really is a symbolization of hope. The words orange and fire are good connotations that helps create effect in the poem because it shows how these are symbols that stimulate emotions from the poem. Soto uses metaphor as a literary device when he says, quote, “I peeled my orange that was so bright against the gray of December”, meaning that the description of the oranges intense, “bright” color in contrast to the wintery “gray” of the landscape brings all the focus onto the orange in the speaker’s hands. Soto uses another metaphor when he says, quote, “That, from some distance, someone might have thought I was making a fire In my hands”.
This writing was enticed by Ralph Waldo Emerson, who thought that the collection of poems were “the most extraordinary piece of wit and wisdom.” Many people throughout the century noticed the ideologies that Whitman portrayed in his writings, and it is still evident today.

Throughout the poem he uses the word “I” to describe himself which shows individualism which is a romantic quality. Mr.Whitman also uses imagery in his “Song to Myself”.
Robert Frost and John Frederick Nims are astounding poets from the 1900s. One of the many reasons why Robert Frost’s “Road Not Taken” and John Frederick Nim’s “Love Poem” are considered great pieces of literature is because of their brilliant use of literary devices throughout the poems. Their works have impacted not just the literature side of society, but every side of society through their sense of strong literary devices like point of view, metaphors, imagery, hyperbole, personification, and tone. In The Road Not Taken, Frost uses first person point of view in order to connect with his audience. In many lines, he uses “I” to show us it is his personal experience.
Have you ever read a poem and thought, “what does it mean?” You may ask yourself that question when you read the poem, “summer,” by Walter Dean Myers. “Summer,” by Walter Dean Myers, is about the little things the poet loves about summer.

In Walt Whitman’s “song of myself”, there is many reverences to himself. I am going to pick out some of the references to himself and explain what I believe that they mean to me. On the first line of the poem, “I celebrate myself, and sing myself” (Whitman 1330). Which says to me that Walt Whitman is proud out his accomplishments that he has achieved thought out his life. Even the accomplishments that were viewed as not good or not worthy of praise.
Thank you” (Krakauer 37). This excerpt shows that McCandless sincerely is at peace with himself and the world because of where his ideals have taken him. For this, McCandless should be admired for his views for allowing him to live his best life. In conclusion, McCandless is not a reckless individual who perishes due to arrogance. Instead, he is admirable because his ideals have allowed him to live with true happiness.
Throughout his poem, he constantly talks about the importance of coming together and merging. Whitman says, “I celebrate myself, and sing myself, And what I assume you shall assume, For every atom belonging to me as good belongs to you” (Whitman 1). On the surface, this quote may appear to illustrate that Whitman thinks highly of himself, but it is more than this. The last part of this quote emphasizes that we are all connected and even though we are all individuals, we should not forget that we are connected to one another. Whitman also says, “Urge and urge and urge, Always the procreant urge of the world.
Whitman Walt, Williams Carlos Williams and Audre Lorde are three great American poetic writers in the American Literature. These writers transformed the literature world by using reality to create language in their writings, which is very fascinating, as they all used the language tools of symbolism, metaphor, nature and imagery in their critical illustrations of their poems. Example, Whitman, related his poet to the growth and changes that occurred in his life, thereby giving nature the room to do his work without withholding it, whereas Williams poems talks more about his life towards moving forward and achieving his goal expectation in life. Williams poet, talks more about ‘’glazed with rain water’’ which is also the force of nature in action.
I have an infinite amount of love for my friends and will not hesitate to tell them when they look good or when they do something impressive. Slim is very nice and never puts his friends down or discourages them, he praises them instead, like a good friends does. I always try to be nice to others and give them compliments whenever I notice something I like about them. Another reason Slim and I are similar is because he has to make decisions. I do not just think twice when making a decision, I think many times before I decide what is the best choice to make.
different aspects of Romanticism was Douglass able to overcome the instructional oppression. In Walt Whitman’s Song of Myself , he uses nature to set the poem. Nature is constructed by divine imagination, and with the use of it, Whitman uses it to express his surrounding in a Romantic way. In Song of Myself, Whitman says, “I loafe and invite my soul, I lean and loafe at my ease….” (Whitman 1). As Whitman loafes physically, mentally he is well aware if the nature around him, “…observing a spear of summer grass” (1).
