In “The Author to Her Book”, Anne Bradstreet deceives everyone, even herself. The poem uses a metaphor to describe her poems. ; her “children” refer to her poetry, and she employs vivid imagery to describe these “children” as ugly, deformed and abhorrent. Nevertheless, she employs this poem to tell the world that her works are ill-formed since poetry is the best way she can communicate to the world. However, she lies in this poem.
The poem “Hate Poem” written by Julie Sheehan is a poem that is filled with details of the speaker’s hatred for another person. The poem itself contains personification and metaphors, all used to describe hate and the amount of hatred felt for the other. “The blue-green jewel of sock lint I’m digging/from under my third toenail, left foot, hates you” Stanza 3 lines 9 and 10. The speaker is extremely detailed, which exemplifies the speaker’s obsession with the person. “I hate you truly.
This shows her families hate brought about her love; the two opposing forces are vital to each other and are ever so knotted. These ideas reinforce how hate may very likely transform into a blooming love, such as when Friar Lawrence speculates its purpose within nature and states: For naught so vile that on the earth doth live But to the earth some special good doth give; Nor aught so good but, strained from that fair use; Revolts from true birth, stumbling on abuse. Virtue itself turns vice, being misapplied And vice sometimes by action dignified. (II, iii, 17-22) Here, the explicit theme of the play signifies love as virtue good concept and hate as vicea bad topic. In the natural world, love may turn to hate when misapplied and hate into love by an honorable action.
As she passes Montag, she repeatedly says “poor family” and “everything’s gone”. Rather than caring about Montag who was about to be killed for having books, she is more worried about her walls and her ‘family’ being burned. Bradbury uses techniques such as repetition, extended sentences, and a distraught tone of voice to establish Mildred’s unhappiness. Ultimately, Ray Bradbury adequately examines the recurring theme of the repression of authentic human relationships through his use of extensive literary
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
Because McKay turns his country into a person, the offenses against him seem much more personal. He begins the poem by writing, “Although she feeds me bread of bitterness, And sinks into my throat her tiger’s tooth…” (1-2). Immediately, because McKay morphs America into a person, the reader is able to see that the relationship between the poet and “her” is abusive. It is obvious that America has caused the author of the poem distress and that “she” is constantly looking for ways to make him feel small. Since McKay describes his country as a person rather than a thing, it makes the poem more emotional which adds to the severity of his hardships.
In “My life with the Wave” poem that is written by Octavio Paz, he speaks about the phases a couple goes through when in love and how jealousy eventually ended the relationship, a passion that turned cold. The surrealist prose poem is a story stating the elements of love and hatred running through the relationship amid the narrator and the wave, which are both, physical and emotional.

Othello angrily turns to Iago and yells “ O, devil, devil!” (IIII.i.273) in frustration with his loyal bride. Iago is getting into Othello's head so much that Othello fails to see the truth. As the play goes on, you see Othello’s actions become violent. As Desdemona approaches Othello, Othello strikes her causing her to cry and leave the room is sadness
Enjambment helps the reader either empathize with the claws, or villainize them. This device shows the difference in view that the poets took in conveying their heroes and villains. Enjambment magnifies how oppositely the writers felt about Fate. In Beowulf, she is depicted as a mother, or a god, looking out for her favorites. “Human” despises her though, and says that she didn’t care for anyone but the humans.
The hate poem by Julie Sheehan struck my attention starting with the first time I read it, I immediately thought that I could relate to this poem. Julie Sheehan has quite a few pieces that I had read because of my initial interest in the hate poem but none of the other poems I have read have been as relatable as this one. Julie had many different forms and ways of showing her hate for the person or people that she is talking about. She helped to show me that you can take almost anything happy and put it into a hate poem in someway, which is quite funny when you read the poem. “I dissect you cell by cell, so that I might hate each one individually and at leisure.” (Hate Poem, Sheehan).
