The combination of these syllables gave the readers a sense of the true strength of the Tyger. Repetition is also used throughout the poem. Multiple lines were used were repeated to show significance. One example of repetition is shown when Blake wrote this line, “And what shoulder, and what art?” where the phrase “and what...” was repeated. This showed significance and abnormalities of the
This prompt lets me express myself, and that is why I chose it. 2. The style of punctuation and the amount that I use punctuation varies throughout the poem. I did this on purpose. In the first stanza of the poem, I try to emulate Sylvia Plath in that I use enjambment to separate ideas to help the reader discern what is important.
Poetic devices are important in literature because they help to convey a message, add spontaneity to a poem, and give the reader a strong visual. Some poems are lengthy, and some poems can be very short, however when analyzed, they all express a deeper message. For example, when examining the poem, "The Changeling," by Judith Ortiz Cofer, the reader can easily spot the important message which the author is trying to reveal to the reader through the use of poetic devices. When closely reading this poem, the language and the terminology applied by Cofer enhances the readers ability to make connections between the theme of this poem and how it can be applied to real world scenarios. The poetic devices incorporated into the poem, "The Changeling," reflect on how young children interpret gender roles in their own way.
The rhythmical nature of the poem alongside the "Da-Duh" poetic meters are key to Marvell 's writing. The poetic meters and repetition are just as important as the words written by Marvell, without the use of those poetic devices, the poems meaning would change and the stanzas would
The author uses rhyming, repetition, religious words, we/our statements, and words of pain to portray this rhetorical purpose. The author uses rhyming like most poets do. It makes the poem more enjoyable to read. He also uses repetition. The phrase, “we wear the mask”, starts and ends the poem.
Many language devices also have been used in the second poem. For example, numerous rhyme included at the end of lines to have an effect of building the atmosphere such as” sacks, backs, sludge and trudge”. Rhyme creates flow, making it easy to follow the images and the story of the speaker, helps get the point stuck in the readers’ head. The smile is another major factor of technique like “Bent double, like old beggars”, this is putting an image into the reader 's mind to help readers understand the poem. The author also has strong lines with different language devices to create an effect on tone.
The tone ii the poem is immensely important because it tells the reader the attitude or feeling the poet takes toward a theme or subject. In other words, how the author feels about the subject in the poem. This is done by the choice of certain words or the inclusion of certain details rather than others. There can be two poems that are written about the same subject, but mean entirely different things because of the tone conveyed by the poet. For example, Richard Lovelace “To Lucasta On Going to the Wars”, and Wilfred Owen’s “Dulce et Decorum Est”, are both poems written about war, but the poems’ difference in tones make the two very different pieces from each other.
There is a capitalisation of ‘Time’ because in this context, the use of this effect suggests personification. This use of repetition combined with a similar structure for most of the stanzas: three lines, with enjambment on the third, beginning with “I am”; reinforce the connection to time, routine and thus, the mundane tone of the events. Curnow’s ‘Time’ features a rhyme, that resembles the ticking of the second hand, found at the end of each line of the first four stanzas: “pines”, “lines” and “signs”. This technique appeals to the auditory senses of the audience and subtly emphasises the passing of time between the beginning and the ending of the poem. The aforementioned statement about the passing of time is also echoed and shown in the use of two tenses throughout the poem- past and present.
The poem is not good to read only because of its subject, however. The use of repetition and symbolism in “Blink Your Eyes” adds more depth to the poem, and highlights the societal issues that the author and others of his race have felt. Use of repetition in poetry directs the reader 's attention to that word or phrase, as Sundiata does in “Blink Your Eyes.” Along with how the stanzas are formed, the repetition used sets a pace to the poem. In the first stanza, Sundiata writes “thru a red light red light red light” (Sundiata 503). The use of repetition here is smart, because the “red light” that is spoken of has two meanings and is crucial to the overall theme of the poem.
By further continuing the sentence, as in the first poem, the poem is started off with a flowing feeling. Sentences are fluid and connect with one another, bringing about light and fresh feelings. The stark stop of the sentence at the beginning of the second poem gives the poem a more biting feel. The shorter, broken sentences frequently used in “Five Flights Up” in comparison with the flowing, descriptive sentences of “Five A.M.” provide contrasting feels that play a hand in the poems’ contrasting themes. Another form of syntax implemented by both poets is the use of questions.
“My Papa’s Waltz” is a simple and short poem that is filled with ambiguities, tensions, and metaphors, well articulated to create a unified piece of writing. The wordplay here creates a major impact to the overall theme of the poem creating a strong emotional connection to the boy 's experience. It is evident with the title which is essentially transparent. It sets the poem up for expectation before we even read the first line. This allows the author to concentrate on the rhythm of the language rather than using up precious lines to explain what 's going on.
The rhythm of unstressed and stressed added to the overall feel of the sonnet. The sonnet has that rhythm that makes the poem easier to read and provides a natural flow that accompanies the subject. I embraced the emphasis of emotions and thoughts that are associated with sonnets. For example, Petrarch focused on love, and he used the sonnets to show others the feelings he had inside. Petrarch used sonnets to share his true feelings, and I also used my sonnet to express my feelings.
