'Mending Wall' is an interesting poem that is symbolic of the differences in human thinking on barriers Robert Frost is known to make use of nature and pathetic fallacies in his poems and a lot of symbolism that leaves the reader to imagine what he really means,making his poems highly subjective. In this piece, Frost has used words and phrases that we could draw parallels with,he uses a sense of underlying meanings with these phrases. In the title itself, ‘Mending wall’ the poet lets us know that the poem is about a wall or a fence,but later the reader realizes that it’s more than just the words on the surface that Frost wants us to recognize. The poet refers to the wall as a solid object but also a psychological or invisible wall,this wall signifies the differences between the two neighbors. Ironically,when the wall is actually supposed to separate two beings,this wall reunites the two neighbors ,this is seen in the title ‘Mending wall’,where one might suggest that this is grammatically incorrect, what Frost might actually be intending is that the poem is more about the wall mending the relationship between the two individuals than the two merely mending the wall itself !This wall maybe built due to differences in thoughts and ideas or merely just because of social awkwardness of the two characters.

This essay is about her poem “ Nomenclature Dance and stumble” at first this poem seems so twisted and confusing, at first look it seems she just compiled a few complicated dictionary words and mixed them in with verbs and adjectives.

However, there is a deeper meaning beyond the obvious surface reading. Coming from a more analytic perspective, Bradstreet’s subtle diction causes the reader to question her spiritual sincerity. The couplet in the second section of the poem is one such area where the reader is able to sense a feeling of injustice on the
In “The Author To Her Book” by Anne Bradstreet, the speaker who takes on the role of an author, displays her insecurities for a piece of literature she has written. Through the extended series of comparisons between the speaker’s poems and her children and the vivid personification, the poet expresses the strong and intimate bond she develops for her work and her ambivalent feelings towards it. Also, Bradstreet’s self-deprecating poem explores the idea of perfection in literature. Firstly, the title reveals the relationship between the author and her book.

Key points on Rebecca L. Walkowitz Rebecca L. Walkwoitz starts her article by giving us Coetzee’s “Diary of a Bad Year” as an example of what she calls Comparison Literature. Coetzee’s novel meets the criteria of comparison literature due to its circulation and production formally, typographically and thematically. Rebecca goes on to state clearly the difference between the field of national literature in which the scholars share the locus of production, and the field of comparative literature in which scholars share a structure of analysis. In Rebecca’s point of view, two requirements are necessary for comparison literature: First, new geographic lines are to be drawn for the literary works. Second, preserving the study within the historical context including the different editions and translations.
By initiating the first-person narrative in the title, the speaker sets herself apart from the antagonistic white man. This separation continues throughout the piece, as she continues to use the “I’ and “my” pronouns when referring to space we would normally consider communal, including land. Also of note is her decision to place the word “between” in lowercase, which goes against normal grammatical conventions. The word “between” signifies space separating two entities. The choice to have the reader stop to ponder this separateness after the capitalized “War” and before the capitalized “Races” calls attention to the deep division that inherently exists in the society of this poem.
“Good poets make readers think about their own lives not only by What they say but how they say it” A personal reflection. The value of poetry to me is its power to move my emotion with ideas. Poets depict their experiences using words, creating feelings in me about situations I think about but may never experience. Poems act like art; somehow they bypass the conscious and go straight to the heart. The two poems I wish to discuss are, “Anthem for Doomed Youth”, which is about the senseless waste of young lives on the battlefields of World War One, and “Dulce et Decorum Est” which is about how fighting wars for your country isn’t sweet and patriotic, but war is actually a waste of lives.
