I loved these poems for the way they spoke about really events that had a significant impact in their lives. In Dulce et decorum Est I could believe it was written in WW1 I was stunned to be reading this, as I was reading this part (Wilfred)” He plunges at me, guttering, chocking, drowning.” Which made me think about how horrible that event was. Both poems had much to tell in their own way but what they explained their life was very moving. Finding a way to describe these poems is hard because they seem to be have some great points. In the events of the poem “Dulce et Decorum Est” I felt that he was really giving some stunning detail.
Daniel Halpern Poems are not only words, they are further more than that. Poems are a way for the poet to express their feelings, thoughts, ideas, and point of views. Poets can create poems that are fiction and made up or poems that give real-life situation, but,it will always have a purpose or a life lesson. Every poet has their own way of writing and way of building an idea in a reader 's mind. This essay will analyze a well known poet named Daniel Halpern.
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.
From here, a uniform mood and tone is set throughout the poem and can be seen heavily in not only the choice of words but, also the plot and structure of the poem. The theme of sympathy is really conveyed through Erdrich’s melancholic tone. Throughout the poem, we see a very gloomy and melancholic tone set by the events happening.“Until I could no longer bear / the thought of how I was” (51-52), these two lines portray her battle after she is rescued and how instead of her relief she is feeling a longing to be back with her captors. Lines similar to these two lead embody why the tone is so gloomy and sad especially when readers see the battle she is experiencing because she is safe now, away from her captors but, she doesn 't really want to be. The melancholic tone leads to sympathy as we can see the narrator having feelings towards her captors and the sadness of the situation and her sympathy is shown through the tone in this
I have chosen the task of interviewing Carol Ann Duffy, a prominent Scottish poet in order to familiarize and empathise with her struggle for creating her own identity as a poet in the creative field. The interview is designed to give a general impression of Duffy’s endeavors and how she has scripted ‘Valentine’, in my opinion a rather quirky take on the modern day sappy, romantic love poems. An interview will provide the readers with an insight into her personal beliefs and opinions, which in turn will make them connect to her voice. It will also demonstrate her emotions and feelings regarding love and affection and how she imagines the conceptualization of it. The interview will be structured in a formal manner for it to be highly informative
Blake is considered one of the romantic period poets. He is identified as part of the Romantic literary canon. One of the important goals of this period is to write poetry which appeal to everybody and this is what Blake uses when he write his poems. Through that period there were different attitude to the concept of childhood. This essay will discuss the understanding childhood in William Blake’s Innocence and experience poems.
In example, Toomer’s poem, “Her Lips Are Copper Wire” describes a rebellion against being silenced, “then with your tongue remove the tape/and press your lips to mine/till they are incandescent” followed by a tale of bright passion (PoemHunter V5). Poetry is an extraordinary form of self expression, one can follow the limitations of certain poem styles such as limerics, or let the words flow freely without common writing restrictions such as punctuation and grammar. In his poem “The Lost Dancer,” Toomer describes the
The poem I have chosen to discuss are, John Clare’s “I am” and “Ode to Autumn.” by John Keats. Both of these poems deal with the sublime and express the concern of self-consciousness that poetry addressed during the romantic period. John Clare’s “I am” is a refection upon ones last minutes of breathing life, or rather a pondering of death. The poem is cleverly constructed through the structured use of complex poetic techniques in the phonics and sense appealing aspects of the poem. Clare writes to manipulate the reader, not to show them his grief and despair from his point of view, but instead, a point of view of which he would like them to see from.
There are a multitude of techniques poets use to make their poetry both pithy and complex. Due to the limitations of certain poetic forms, poets may be forced to use the devices of meter and diction to accurately express their commentary. Some poets may choose to use allusions to relate a number of scenarios to a certain theme, utilizing the historical context of these scenarios as further material for interpretation. Other poets may choose the opposite approach to economy, intentionally writing little, but carefully using diction and metaphor to allow the reader to “say a lot” themselves by interpreting the work in a number of different ways. Although the poets John Keats, W.H.
The mood and manner of these writings explain why in certain minds Sri Aurobindo is equated with “The Philosopher as Poet”. An unequal volume, there are however, exceptions to the philosophizing mood. For instance, in a poem like Who, the poet speaks about the
