The poetic techniques employed by Harwood effectively communicate distinctive aspects of her themes while allowing them to remain universal. Harwood captures ubiquitous tensions through her use of contrasting imagery and makes them familiar with vivid detail and a dramatic use of dialogue. It is Harwood’s unique ability to combine the philosophical and the emotive which allows for the continuity of her poetry. In “Triste, Triste”, Harwood explores the tensions between the creative spirit and the limitations of the earthly. The concept of the artists’ imagination as a separate entity, able to transcend the physical is a rather Romantic one.
It is my opinion the writer used this element well, as it grabbed my attention and made it a fun and interesting reading.

As I stated in the first paragraph, the author uses many different literary devices to make his message clear.
Illusionism is when an artist creates an appearance of reality by using certain artistic techniques, such as perspective and shadowing. It can give a sense of depth or motion, and it brings the painting or artwork to life. In the Young Woman Writing, there is a young woman holding a book with a stylus gracefully placed at her lips. The shawl that is draped over her shoulders shows signs of shadowing, in the sense that it is slightly darker on the left side, indicating a light source coming from the upper right corner. This makes her appear three dimensional, therefore more realistic.
