These concerns were firmly established early in twentieth-century American poetry by the New England poets Robert FROST and Wallace STEVENS, then later by, along with Bronk, Robert CREELEY and George OPPEN, and in the nineteenth century by Henry David Thoreau (an especially strong influence on Bronk), Ralph Waldo Emerson, and Emily Dickinson. Bronk was born in Fort Edward, near Hudson Falls, New York where he lived all his life except for his student years at Dartmouth College and Harvard University, a period of military service during World War II and a brief stint as an instructor at Union College. Even after he gained a wide readership, Bronk shrank from public attention and concentrated on his immediate surroundings. His writing expresses his refusal to compromise his life style and point of view as in his poem "The Abnegation" (1971): "I will not / be less than I am to be more human." He believes that what he knows of the world is only a semblance of the truth at best.
The Academy of American Poets has commented more broadly on Cohen's overall career in the arts, including his work as a poet, novelist, and songwriter, stating that "[Cohen's] successful blending of poetry, fiction, and music is made most clear in Stranger Music: Selected Poems and Songs, published in 1993, which gathered more than 200 of Cohen's poems … several novel excerpts, and almost 60 song lyrics … While it may seem to some that Leonard Cohen departed from the literary in pursuit of the musical, his fans continue to embrace him as a Renaissance man who straddles the elusive artistic borderlines."
Snow in the suburbs is a poem written by Thomas Hardy, an English novelist, short story writer and poet of the natoralist movement. Hardy saw himself mostly as a poet and wrote novels purely for financial gain, although he wrote a great deal of poetry that went mostly unpublished until after 1898. Thomas was remembered for the series of novels and short stories he wrote between 1871 and 1895. In 1898 Hardy published his first volume of poetry, Wessex Poems, a collection of poems written over 40 years. Hardy did not get the recognition he deserved from the contemparies of his time, however recently his poems have been applauded because of the influence of Philip Larkin but they are still not as highly regarded as his prose.
Throughout history, many American poets are influenced by where they live, their family, jobs they have done, events in their lives, and many other significant points in their life. Poet Walt Whitman is no different. His life events, family, jobs, childhood, and education all play in the writings he produced. It can be traced through his many poems, few stories, and even a few of the articles he wrote in newspapers across the country. Walt Whitman had very unique characteristics.
Sierra Lewis Dr. Ryan Guth ENG 4604 October 7, 2014 Analysis of Edgar Allan Poe’s “To Zante” A distinct contrast to his more popular poems like "The Raven" or "Annabel Lee," Edgar Allan Poe's lesser known sonnet exemplifies his diverse poetic skill. "To Zante" was first published in The Southern Literary Messenger in 1837 and is one of only three true sonnets Poe is ever known to have written. Weaving together a nostalgic moment about a beautiful island that reminds him of a woman he once loved, Poe creates a Shakespearean sonnet that adheres to the rules of proper meter and rhyme scheme. The use of vivid imagery with a mournful tone helps to further his contrast of the isle Zante and the long lost "maiden." Written as a sonnet, this particular form of poetry typically deals with themes like love, heartbreak, and affection, and "To Zante" is no exception.
Nobel Prize winner John Steinbeck, most known for his novel The Grapes of Wrath, also wrote two collections of short stories. With over thirty works in his career, Steinbeck developed a unique style of his own. A few of the commonalities in his work include a setting in the Salinas Valley, his works also often have “a recurring theme [of] frustration resulting from isolation, loneliness, or sexual repression” (Werlock). These elements of Steinbeck’s writing provide “open-ended and thought provoking” ideas that allow new generations to relate to his characters (Werlock). For example, in John Steinbeck’s “The Chrysanthemums”, he reveals that in the patriarchal society of the 1930s women serve more as a decoration and have little purpose in the world; he does so through character, symbolism, and point of view.
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
