When reading poetry, I use his three main rules to understand the work; without these rules comparing a pilgrim to a poetry reader understand poems would still be difficult. The comparison gives readers a mind set to shift to, one of a pilgrim in a new land. This opens the readers mind just as the pilgrims opened their minds to new ways of life. Most poems are based on emotions, these feelings can be different from reader to writer. by following Hirsch’s
Poetry tends to be more focused on the importance of rhythm and meter, especially the older poetry. Prose tends to be less focused on the rhythm and meter. Another difference between prose and poetry is whether the imagination is active or not. In prose, we are taken by the hand and show everything in detail, whereas in poetry, we fill in the description more with our imagination and thoughts. Compare to prose, poetry is more attractive and enjoyable whereas prose seems to be dull and monotonous.
The idea that “…poetry presents us with images, ideas, concepts, which connect in such a way that makes the experience of the whole poem meaningful with a deep sense of significance. This shows that the perspective can come apart from a narrative structure.” (Simecek, 503). This means that not everyone will have the same experience with the work of literature as another and just because one individual feels that there is a strong connection between two characters when in the authors perspective may not be the case. The thoughts that we associate with these images may cause our own perspective shift which is true in all works of
How Is A Poem With other types of literature, poems often have profound or unclear meanings, but with in-depth analysis, poems can turn up somewhat unique. Many people may think that poems take the definition of a short piece of writing where feelings and emotions flourish, but in reality, poems confront more with the “how” factor, how can a poem express feelings or how can a poem turn up unique. From long poem books to two words shortest poem in the world, they all have something in common to make them exclusive to every other type of literature. Poems truly uniqueness comes mainly from the four areas of structure, musical character, language, and the reading of poems. First of all, poems can take very outstanding structures, including the
Poetry can be used as a completely separate language on how someone can express him or herself, voice their opinions on issues, as well as create something a person can enjoy reading and writing. What makes poetry unique is that it takes ideas and puts them into simple language that the reader can understand and relate to through emotion and imagery. On the other hand, poetry in its form can also be a puzzle in how to interpret what the poem has to say or what the meaning behind or the subject of the poem. The construction, as well as the heart and soul that goes into the creation process of the poem, is what drives the poems to be as unique as the poet intends them to be. Two examples of this are Terrence Hayes and Harryette Mullen who are both amazing at what they do as poets as well as creating a ton of great and award-winning poetry collections which drew readers into reading and trying to interpret their poems.
Yet, he was not a person who would let people 's opinions hinder him, instead, he used it in his writing. Therefore, Wilde’s style of poetry reflects his time as a Victorian writer, even if his topics and ideas did not, and this is because his own lifestyle did not fit into society, especially since his feminine side and sexuality were a big part of his life on which he
Often people come to a fork in their lives that demand a decision. Unfortunately, the decision may not be easy to make even when evaluated closely. Robert Frost the author of “The Road Not Taken” intelligently emphasizes using theme, conflict, setting, mood, clever narration, and symbolism to express that making decisions is inescapable, a path can be researched thoroughly but is unknown unless it is traveled. This poem reveals the difficulty of decision-making as well as the human nature when confronted with conflict. Robert Frost develops a theme in “The Road Not Taken” that is relatively confusing simply due to being a short poem that causes readers to perceive the concept differently depending on their worldview.
Rina Morooka Mr Valera Language Arts Compare and Contrast essay on “The poet’s obligation”, “When I have fears that I may cease to be”, and “In my craft of sullen art” The three poems, “The poet’s obligation” by Neruda, “when I have fears that I may cease to be” by Keats, and “In my craft of sullen art” by Thomas, all share the similarity that they describe poets’ relationships with their poems. However, the three speakers in the three poems shared different views on their poetry; the speaker in Neruda’s poem believes that his poems which were born out of him stored creativity to people who lead busy and tiring life, and are in need of creativity, while the speaker in Keats’ poem believes that his poems are like tools to write down what
-says Nigel Watts in his book Teach Yourself Writing a Novel about the block that many of us comes across while we try to come up with something creative. It is entirely different from simply conveying information and is more inclined to the expression of thoughts, feelings and emotions. Many people find writing help give a vent to their innermost feelings, which they are otherwise forced to keep bottled up within themselves. It can also be a way of creative expression as expressing creativity may be a way that helps to foster meaning in our lives. Writing often helps to flush from the deep thickets of the self some thought, feeling, comprehension, question, music, the writer didn’t know was in him, or in the world.
Preamble When the word literature is being mentioned; regardless of what genres it might be, the only thing that will pop up in our minds, especially those who are learning literature would feel that literature is hard, complex and sometimes nonsensical. The word hard comes from the notion of literature itself - as a piece of art where it is made up of complicated words; as it is hard to tangle the meaning and hard to make sense of what actually is the intended meaning or the message that needed to be grasped by the readers. The question that is now raised is how should the idea of “literature is hard” can be dismissed and what are the suitable approaches needed to be taken to prove that literature; when being taught with the accurate methods
