“…We are invited to see this significance in the perspective of the poem … but through our own perspective…” (Simecek, 504). The techniques of explaining your perspective can prove to be a rather challenging task. The authors William Shakespeare and Anne Bradstreet do just this. With the use of multiple literary devices, the poets used emotions and feelings to make you understand the connections between the author and subject. The perfect examples being the two titles, “Sonnet 18” and “The Author to Her Book”.
We can see the beauty of his writing through imagery because it is represented in such ways such as “the twilight darkens, the curlew calls” and so much more. Longfellow seems to suggest that time is not really something measurable.

It wasn 't always what hughes has written for us in his poetry, but what we take away from the poem. In such a cases, Hughes’ work is filled with meaning both for the poet and the reader. It must be first said that the poem follows no rhyme scheme or proper stanzas. Yet this does not in anyway detract from the poems effectiveness.
What one person may view as Sappho’s intentions and general reflections on cultural values may be different that another persons. There is no way of knowing for sure what the meaning is because it was written so long ago and there are limited resources available to help interpret it. Additionally, small details pertaining to this primary source can significantly change its meaning. The article mentions how a simple “us” in a lyric instead of “me”, can change the entire interpretation, as it changes the speaker. (Mendelsohn 75)

Anzaldua intentionally omits punctuation in this case to force readers move on to the next line despite a desire to pause; thus, the separate lines encounter a greater purpose. In effect, the author is able to fabricate a competing scenario between the distinct lines of the poem, as each line competes for the reader’s attention, so do the various sources of the inhabitant’s make-up.
