The storm condenses itself to affect into the narrator 's house, which is most likely made to weather the storm, “Against the keyhole draught, the insistent whine of weather through the unsealed aperture (lines 24-25).” the pedantic selection of detail gives the tone apparational image, slithering itself in. The “keyhole draught” shows the small space that the storm travels through to let itself in. The power of the storm makes the narrator admit that a strong defense is the only way to stay safe and sheltered in a subtle tone of diction, “this is our soul defense against the season (line 26).” The noun “defense” gives a tone of safe keeping a protection.

It passes its time unhappily with the flower until, evaporated by a sympathetic sun, it reunites with its “native element” (8). Intriguing in and of itself, this fanciful account of the dewdrop ultimately serves to enrich the description of a more important topic: the human soul according to Marvell and many Christian theologians, who believe that the soul dwells uncomfortably in the beautiful

From reading Section V What the Thunder Said of T.S. Eliot’s riveting poem The Waste Land it is clear that it a complex yet the detail and material of the section adds to the mystery and depth of poem as a whole. Based on the form of the poem Eliot has chosen his techniques wisely, the use of alliteration and onomatopoeia give emphasise the feelings in useful manner. The structure seems to be quite consistent and although some of the stanzas and lines may vary in length, over all there does appear to be a constant flow in rhythm and flow. This poem contains very powerful imagery; the subject of religion is very prominent throughout the text, especially in Section V. The first part of the section immediately incorporates religion
