An example of this can be found in paragraph 6 of "SEVEN DECADES ON," where it states, "'... On whose branches little raindrops shine,' she wrote, 'appearing like silver, and at the seagulls as the glide on the wind. While it last, I cannot be unhappy.'" Simon use's quotes like this to farther develop thinking, while giving much detail about what is happening. Simon use's these long detailed quotes from Anne to give his tone a feeling of hope and ambition.
My Wicked Ways, by Sandra Cisneros, has a unique rhythm and meter of poem. The poem does not include many perfect rhymes but the author does use imperfect rhymes throughout the duration of the poem. For example, My Wicked Ways, poet Sandra Cisneros states: that tips over one eye, a suit that fits him good,
They love each other.” In “Predators” the author has an alliteration, “in the trust that many tales spun this tract long before I came.” The sound devices give more details and can help the poem flow better. On the contrary, the poems are either written in a simple diction or a sophisticated diction. “Predators” is written with a sophisticated diction, meaning it has many unfamiliar words and it is sometimes hard to understand.
In the poem “Prayer at Sunrise” the author uses “thou”, “thee”, and ”thy”. While “The Jewish Year” uses regular english. I think the use of Shakespearean language makes it feel more uplifting and interesting. The specific translations I found for each of these words was “thou” translates to “you” subject, “thy” translates to “your” possessive and “thee” translates to “you” as the object in the sentence. The use of Shakespearean language also gives it an underlying meaning of the words in the poem while “The Jewish Year” has the meaning of the poem plainly written and you can understand the it much easier.
They also represent what kind of contemporary entertainment he enjoys. He also uses quite a few enjambments to drive the poem forward. The enjambments bring the lines together, even though there is a line break the idea of the line continues on. A example of one of Hughes’s enjambments is “ I guess you learn from me--/ although you’re older”(Hughes 38-39).
Shel Silverstein named them, Ickle, Pickle, and Tickle, which all end in that “ickle” sound. This adds a kind of rhythm and voice to the poem and helps the reader read it in the way that Silverstein would have read it. Kind of choppy and accented on the “ickle” part. He also uses rhyming throughout the poem by rhyming different words with the word “too.” For example, “too” and “shoe” and “flew” and “stew” and “blue” and “do” and “knew.”
Someone that we can "... Hear the fierce hammering Of his firm knuckles Hard on the door..." It goes on in this style throughout the entire poem, and it really adds to us being to understand the purpose of the poem. Truth, by Gwendolyn Brooks, is a wonderful piece of literature that uses much symbolism, comparing it both to life itself and the Civil Rights Movement. At first I was wondering how the title even fit in to the topic of it, but then I realized that Brooks was just trying to show us that this is what we truly do and that it is something that needs to stop.
They are a bit different though. Within the poem Tabeau it quotes, “In unison to walk,” The two boys, one white and one black create a friendship that means more to them than what others say. This is why the theme or the message of this poem is everyone should be equal. “ From May until December; of all the things that happened there, that’s all I remember,” Incident said finally. This poem put out a message showing that words are powerful.
Comparison of Olds’s and Uyermatsu’s Poems The literature has many examples of poems that do express the direct moo at the first sights. The Rite of passage by Sharon Olds and Deliberate by Amy Uyermatsu are in this list. The first poem describes the Birthday party of a small boy who should be about six or seven years old. Second work speaks about the growth of female representatives of ethnic minorities, as lines about the makeup and high heels suggest characters are girls.
“Bishop’s carefully judged use of language aids the reader to uncover the intensity of feeling in her poetry.” While studying Elizabeth Bishop 's poetry, it was remarkably clear that Bishop 's carefully judged use of language aids the reader to uncover the intensity of feeling in her poetry. In the six poems in which I studied by this poet, we can see how Bishop used the languages to her advantage in a way that helped the reader to uncover the intensity of feeling in her work. We can see the emotions in her poetry through a mix of language types and techniques within "The Fish", "The Prodigal", “In the Filling Station", "In the Waiting Room", "Sestina" and "First Death in Nova Scotia". Throughout my answer, I will discuss her language types and techniques within her poetry.

Art is expression through creativity that allows us to deliver a message that may be more significant than just words on a page. Art connects with people on a more emotional and spiritual level, and it is this that can help to drive home the artist’s message in his or her works. Natalie Czech’s “A Poem by Repetition by Allen Ginsberg” combines two powerful pieces of art, poetry and photography to create one cohesive piece of art. The art is inspired by writings documented in Ginsberg’s personal journal; not originally being a poet, Ginsberg later had his journal turned into a poem. Czech later discovered the poems and altered the ending to a broader form of self-appreciation, changing the last line of the poem from “anybody,” to “anything.”

“The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock” Essay In “The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock”, T.S. Eliot creates a rather melancholy, resigned tone through the application of multiple literary devices including extensive repetition, the deliberate use of punctuation in conjunction with varied rhyme schemes and meter to both direct attention and generally slow the reader, and repeated references to a few central pieces of imagery that particularly exude this tone. It is evident from passages such as, “For I have know them all already, known them all: — / Have known the evenings, mornings, afternoons, / I have measured out my life with coffee spoons” (3), that Prufrock feels an acute sense of monotony and boredom with the relentlessly repetitive nature
