Despite the differences, both ballads effectively display the typical ballad traditions through dialogue to both involve and mystify the reader, such that, imagination can be applied to it. Although, “Bonny Barbara Allan” and “La Belle Dame sans Merci” slightly differ in their ballad stanzas, both ballads are characteristic of destructive love and allow readers’ imaginations to resolve unanswered questions. Traditional folk ballads are characteristic of series of quatrains wherein the last words of the second and fourth line rhyme – end rhyme. First and third lines of the quatrains consisted of four beats (tetrameter), while the third and fourth consisted of three beats (trimeter). “Bonny Barbara Allan” effectively demonstrates the Iambic rhythm and the end rhyme: o HOOly HOOly ROSE she UP to the PLACE where HE was LYing and WHEN she DREW the CURtain BY, "young MAN i THINK you're DYing.
* There is a lot of rhyming in the poem, which is to be expected in a song form. It doesn’t follow a regular pattern, in the same way that the structure is irregular. It is usually end rhyme, and the 'ee' sound of “"chapatti"”, “"chutney"” and “"Punjabi"” tends to dominate. This use of rhyme gives a swing to the poem, and speeds up the metre. Towards the end of the poem, in the stanzas set at night, rhyme disappears and the metre slows down, appropriate to the intimate feeling of the most affectionate section of the poem.
Said by Richard Wilbur (b 1921) poetry draws emotions also express strong feelings. Poetry is also imaginative. The language gives poetry power. With short stories they are usually first, second, and third person point of view. The poem Wild Geese.
However, both poems were different in terms of purpose. Seemingly the imagery of both the poems revolve around similar but yet quite different notions. The imagery used in both poems revolve around the pictured relationships that both Fanthorpe and Harrison try to emphasise. This is expressed clearly in both pieces of work by the poetic features used by both poets, with Fanthorpe stating that 'you haven't both gone shopping' and that 'I believe ends with death', showing use of personal pronouns and varying it. Notably, Harrison also had a few change in pronouns which complimented his rhyme scheme and used repetition of the phase 'let me'.
Song writing is a very special form of poetry, there are so many elements to each presentation of a song that can change the overall message received by a listener. The way in which a singer stresses the lyrics or plays the instrument can all change the feeling of a song even if the words and actual sheet music are exactly the same. Also a lot is left up to the person listening to the song. So many different literary devices and plays on words are used in songwriting that you can usually take the meanings to be very different depending on which way you look at the song. You can even just listen to it for some four minutes of just listening pleasure if you so please, but I think most songwriters have some sort of message in mind that they are attempting to communicate through their music.
There are many times in life which we comes to accept things we cannot understand. Often we come across situations where someone tries to draw similarities to certain situations. More times than not there can be some similarities drawn, but for the most part it is just not the same. No matter how hard that person(s) might try to convince you how similar the circumstance is, you know the truth. This same situation applies in the short stories " Young Goodman Brown" and " The Rocking Horse Winner."
In both plays Shakespeare explores the ideas of love at first sight, everlasting love, love being able to overcome anything and lust. Both Plays contain similar ideas and themes however since "Romeo And Juliet" is categorised as a tragedy and "The Merchant Of Venice" is described as a 'problem play' there are some key differences in their presentation. The context in which love develops also appears to have a major influence on the nature of this love. Shakespeare uses a variety of different techniques including oxymoron, sonnets and vivid imagery in his presentation of love which in turn helps to create an intimate relationship between the characters. Some may argue however that the theme of 'true love' is not presented between the main characters.
This ideology of writing is an attempt to establish a secure or ultimate meaning of a text. Generally, when reading poetry, one does not try to find the purest form of a word. There is always an obvious meaning to the poem on the surface, when each word is taken at face value. So, the superficial meaning of the poem does not change drastically from read to read. However, in each poem there are always several layers of meaning that exist for all readers to discover.
Emily Dickinson has written many poems about belonging, but of these it is her number 161, or “What mystery pervades a well!”, that has increased my understanding of this complicated and variable concept the most. This is because of her use of many techniques such as insight, personification, metaphor and word choice to make her ideas about belonging easily known to a widespread audience. Belonging is thought to be an internal feeling, achieved through acceptance. It is generally believed that when you belong with someone or something, you know everything about them. However, Dickinson teaches us in “What mystery pervades a well!” that this is not necessarily always, or even ever, the case.
Once these poems began to be briefly analyzed, the word of this imagist movement began to spread across the whole country. The Imagist movement, although short-lived and complicated by some basic contradictions and controversies, definitely left its mark on the literature of its time as well as on many works that would follow. As more poems began to emerge, Pound and Hulme acquired other authors, notably Hilda Doolitte (H.D. ), William Carlos Williams, and eventually Amy Lowell (Hamilton 1), which compose the canon of
