During the Romantic Era, music was not detached from the emotions of a composer as it was in the Classical Era. A distinctive trait of subjective Romantic music was the use of musical instruments to simulate sounds from the environment (Kauble n.p.). Subjectivity provided listeners with tangible images of the intangible subjects that music touched, such as emotions. Even though emotions were a key factor to music since the beginning of the said art, it was only in the Romantic period that emotions were vividly and explicitly highlighted in pieces. This expression of emotions was possible through different techniques such as chromaticism and modulation (change of key) (Kauble n.p.).
The common factor between music and painting is that they are both compositions. Wassily Kandinsky was fascinated by music’s emotional power and used music as an inspirational tool. Music expresses itself through sound and time. The beauty of music is that it allows a listener a freedom of imagination, interpretation, and emotional response that is not based on the literal but also on the abstract qualities of painting. In other words, one can deduce that music is the language that the soul is affected by in a very powerful manner; music is subtle, invisible, but its effects are tangible and profound, even though it is not always empirically provable.
Introduction This paper aims to investigate the language variation and changes and the rhetorical analysis of the poem ‘Sonnet 144’ by William Shakespeare. By using language variation it will help me understanding the language used in the poem, and how language has changed through the years. To get at good insight of the meaning of the words there are used I will do a rhetorical analysis to look at metaphors in the poem. The Poem ‘Sonnet 144’ by William Shakespeare was first published in 1599 together with sonnet 138. The whole collection of 154 sonnets was later published in 1609 called Shake-spears sonnets.
The book and the poem have great works and uses of literary devices that show us that love is an unbreakable bond. The poem uses metaphorical symbolism to reveal that his emotions are as enormous as an ocean. Knowing that this poem is a metaphor we can assume see that the textual evidence is very keen and mild to find. However, the poem uses other ways to convey its messages such as hyperboles. In the last line, it indicated the hyperbole by mentioning, “ Below us, as far as my eyes could see”Tennyson 12.
Firstly the simplicity of the lyrics, but the complexity of the sound; which Handel is known for. I would like to employ the use of motifs in my own composition. This is so that I can emphasize the words being said, and focus more on the music and changing the way they sound to make my own composition more “interesting”. Also by using motifs I am able to incorporate more of Handel’s characteristics such as the use of imitation, and the combination of motifs. To further the Baroque influence of my work I would incorporate one mood throughout the whole piece.
His theories about syntagmatic and paradigmatic relations are significant in studying a metaphor. Mikhail Bakhtin is a critic who is influential in aesthetics, semio-tics, and intertextuality. He elaborates the dialogic aspect of texts. Words or utterances associate with other words and utterances, and they enter into a "dialogic interaction" (Bakhtin, 1984: 90). Therefore, Bakhtin's (1984: 21) "polyphony" shows the plurality of meaning of signs in William Shakespeare's sonnets.
Shakespeare 's first period included epic and verse sonnets and in addition plays. Both these classifications, so commonplace of the Renaissance, discovered ripe soil in England. His sonnets Venus and Adonis (1593), and Lucrece (1594), however more customary in style than any of his works, uncover his trademark way. Their common tone and clear authenticity emerge in sharp help and recognize them from the work of his counterparts. Given us a chance to contrast Shakespeare 's Venus and Adonis and Ronsard 's ballad on the same topic; rather than Ronsard 's appeasing, stylishly frosty treatment of the emotional end of Venus ' adored, and her incredible distress, we discover in Shakespeare a veritable and fervent enthusiasm.
Researchers mainly concern about the psychological and spiritual growth of the self. A. Alvarez however considered that some poems in Life Studies seemed “more compulsively concerned with the processes of psychoanalysis than with those of poetry”. Peter Porter echoes this opinion when he writes in London Magazine: “Snodgrass is a virtuoso, not just of versification but of his feelings. He sends them round the loops of self analysis with the same skill he uses to corset them into his poetry.” The impact of Snodgrass’s self-analytical approach is clearly felt in Stanley Moss’s statement in the New Republic that the poet “has found a place for emotions felt, but previously left without words and out of consciousness. He has identified himself with exquisite suffering and guilt and with all those who barely manage to exist on the edge of
In Paradise Lost he uses number of allusions and archaic vocabulary. The diction, the prosody and the syntax ,the subtle co-operation of the meaning and music, are all of them token of an underlying permanence, the sweep of the grand style towards its destiny. According to Addison, “It is requisite that the language of a heroic poem should be both perspicuous and sublime”(38). Milton maintained sublimity by using
If such elements are destroyed then the beauty of the original poem is gone. It is at this point where the concept of poetry untranslatability begins. However, despite the fact that poetry requires specific translation techniques and lots of efforts to maintain both its meaning the beauty, the excellent translations of masterpieces of the world poetry support the claim that translation of poetry is possible. There are different strategies which translators adopt for translating poetry. The two main strategies all translators are familiar to are: the free and literal translation where poetry
