Despite choosing the haiku over the free-verse poem, I still savored the spirit of Alice Walker's poem. The haiku is simple, yet completely changes the atmosphere in my mind without filling up space with excessive words. Being so short, the poem gives the reader the ability to form their own image in their own mind. I absolutely loved this haiku and its structure, so I believe it is absolutely worthy of being
Throughout her poetry she remains honest, painting an unflattering self-portrait through lyrical beauty, allowing us to empathize with her. One of the key ideas in Bishop’s poetry is a moment of epiphany, this is always supplemented with excellent, stark language. Through Bishop’s poetry it is evident that her childhood experiences had a very negative impact on her life. She portrays these negative experiences through ingenious, immaculate writing. My personal favourite is ‘Sestina’, her superb technical ability is shown in this poem.
This shows that the story itself did not matter as much as the actual act of love. The theme of this poem is, “Physical things sometimes have deeper meanings.” The tone of it was heartwarming, reflective, and grateful. When the reader reads this, he or she can feel and relate to the narrator because we all have parents that we have learned from and are grateful for. That is one reason why this is a great poem because almost anyone can relate to it. This poem also has very vivid images and colorful language.
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
Stereo Hearts’ first sentence contains the metaphor “My heart's a Stereo”. In the line “Just keep it struck inside your head, like your favorite tune,” the artist uses simile to show how much he wants her to love him. Other elements such as personification and repetition were also shown. The most recognisable feature when one listens to the song is probably the slant rhyme, though not perfect, the words still sound similar to each other as it is in a poem. The song is even divided into
The theme dehumanization can be seen in different types of forms for example novel, poetry, art, etc. I will be using the novel, All Quiet on the Western Front, poetry, The Rear-Guard and I will be using a painting, Bathers with a Turtle that was painted by Matisse in 1907. The dehumanizing art is mostly used to trigger familiar emotions and feelings, and this is really the abiding subject of the viewer’s delight. This art is used as a narcotic way that allows us to enjoy what we are most familiar with, our own emotions. Gasset said: “Tears high noon of the intellect”.
Korb delivered with clarity, support, and structure. The essay may have been improved if it introduced more obscure and original ideas however, it was not necessary. Overall Rena Korb provided an eloquent critique of "Désirée's Baby." It showed how much thought is put in to the inclusion of each character and element of a short story, they each plays a vital role in the creation of a well-developed short-story. The essay overall increases understanding of the theme and purpose Chopin’s "Désirée's
The audience gets to witness two drastically different types of relationships. Claudio and Hero are much more formal; Claudio decided to marry Hero not because they were in love, but because she was pretty and wealthy. Their love may be formal, but could be suspected to be insincere. Their talk in verse may be more official, but their love is not that strong. On the contrary, Benedick and Beatrice are completely informal when they speak in prose, but their love is definitely authentic.
To me,writing is as indispensable as water to society. Keeping a good habit of writing makes who I am today.I write with relish, for the process affords much enjoyment as my mind flowing freely on paper. In my eyes,writing is conducive to recording my own stories from daily life. Human is forgetful. It will be quite difficult for me to recall wonderful moments happening several days ago,let alone even earlier time.
Hi Alexandra! I really like how you described how rhyme, rhythm, and tone are intertwined. It 's interesting to consider that they all have a close relationship and contribute to the poem 's impact on a reader. I completely agree with your analysis on the repetition used in the poem. Repeating specific words definitely added emphasis and made the poem 's message clear.
