What this is referring to is that no matter where in your life, you will always have your hope to cling to, unwavering and and free of charge, as shown by the lines “Yet - never- in extremity It asked a crumb of me”. A similarity in the poems is that both authors use metaphors that
During the poem, the narrator goes on a mental journey to her past. A great part about analyzing things is that there is no one right answer. Literary works can be interpreted in many ways, none of which are flat out wrong is you can explain your
Both texts provide insights into the nature of journeys and how the influences of journeys on individuals may differ. The concept of circumstance shaping an individual’s journey is a notion deeply rooted within Guterson’s ‘Snow Falling on Cedars’. Through the
Understanding symbolism, metaphors, foreshadowing, and the construct of stanzas is essential to understanding difficult poems. For the pilgrims they had to outwit wild animals, and hostile natives in their new home. As said by Hirsch in his essay, “It crosses frontiers and outwits the temporal.” Every person once in their life has crossed a frontier, for some it’s a mental frontier, others it’s a physical untraveled land. In “The Mother” the reader must cross a mental frontier, to understand the emotions the writer is expressing. Unless the reader has experienced what is described in the poem some of the emotions will be foreign to them.
Both poems explore the idea of renewed hope that relationships bring either by starting a new one or ending an old one, while employing different stanza length, and creating different moods in the minds of the reader. The most obvious difference in poetic usage by both authors is mood. In “I’ll Open the Window” by Anna Swir, the mood is dark with the use of quotes such as “I am an animal.” and “I hear bones grind, I see our two skeletons.” These quotes from the poem contribute to the feeling that the speaker now detests the relationship between the speaker and her past loved one. She
Furthermore, in the finally two lines I use a metaphor to compare how free I felt while at practice to that of a wild horse: “ I was more free than a wild horse / galloping about, carefree and unphased by what society expects” (Tarbrake 21-22). I choose wild horse for this metaphor because a few summers ago my family and I stayed near Assateague Island and got to see the wild horses; I
The word path means that it is the route he is taking. The quote means that the shell he built and the magnetic field is stopping him from doing a easy task. The final quote is “besides, my own world, in those days, extended only as far as the mailbox besides my front door, i went back to bed.” The keywords are world, far and bed. The word world means that the world he lives in is his shell. The word far means he only goes as far a the mailbox.
It creates the image of them looking from item to item, remembering the events that took place with them, almost like a timeline that leads right into the present. After reading the poem, one gets the sense that this old pair lived a satisfying life. Whilst it may not have always been easy or preferable, it was still a life that was worth living. To be able to look
The interpretations and meanings given to novels written in the past may be greatly different to what the author wanted to convey, and vice versa. With our current point of view and perception we observe these dots that the author provided us with, and according to our current social standards, we connect them in a way that seems most true to us. However, the meaning brought upon by these connections is far from absolute truth and can be subjective. For instance, “the curtains were blue”, might mean that the curtains represent the author’s immense depression and lack of will to carry on. Even though this example is taken from a meme, it can prove a substantial point about patterns.
Examine the view that Marvell presents love as entirely physical Although the role of sexual intercourse within the context of love is heavily emphasized by Marvell in “To His Coy Mistress”, suggesting that the Carpe Diem poem presents love as solely physical is arguably hyperbolic. Marvell’s structural establishment of a perpetual hypothetical implicitly addresses the nature of romantic asexual love and presents it as something fundamentally positive. This is structurally established in the first verse through Marvell’s diction choice of “had we” and continually utilized until the twentieth line. A hypothetical context is essentially presented to the love interest addressed in the dramatic monologue, where the speaker and his lover have enough “World and Time” and her sexual
