Keats in his poem “Ode to a Nightingale” uses precise diction to illustrate his morbid view on the body, seeing it as a decaying shell while in Whitman celebrates the body in “I Sing the Body Electric” through the use of repetition. Keats composed “Ode to a Nightingale” in 1819, shortly before his brother Tom died from tuberculosis with the realization that he in all likelihood had the infection and would suffer the same fate as his brother. The sorrowful acceptance of his death is evident in “Ode to a Nightingale”. The entire poem (except for the eighth line) is written in iambic pentameter. Most of the lines are 10 syllables long and each line there is an alternating use of stressed and unaccented syllables.
With the author’s specific use of diction, structure, parallelism, irony, and symbolism, the poem emerges into a metaphorical tale about the coldness and negligence, rather than sympathy and consolation, many people display during a great misfortune. BODY Diction and structure are the foundation of any literary work. To begin with, Parker uses words like “them” and “they” in her poem rather than more specific and definitive names. This word choice creates a mysterious atmosphere and raises the question: Who are “they” and “them”? The diction the Diction and structure 1 HOLT, RINEHART AND WINSTON Analyzing a Poem writer uses leaves the perpetrators nameless.

In order to create a sense of authenticity, Nam Le abides by verisimilitude in his short stories “Love and Honour and Pity and Pride and Compassion and Sacrifice” and “Tehran Calling” in his collection The Boat. His short story narratives utilise compression, poetics and sentence structure which are artifices to create mood and meaning. In this sense this type of fiction is realistic, but untrue. Readers are aware of this from the outset of the novel with Le’s first short story, which overtly illustrates that the stories in the collection are works of fiction. The autobiographical nature of the first passage in “Love and Honour and Pity and Pride and Compassion and Sacrifice” introduces the reader to the apparent truth and reality of the story, signalling also what is to be expected in the rest of the collection.

Addie's genuine character as a living human will be a mystery; a few may view her as someone who was playing with the devil and others might see her as someone with admiration because she was one to believe that actions speak louder than words. The different characters throughout the novel and the difficulty stream-of-consciousness method all work together to create a novel that is open-ended and a matter of understanding. There is no intent truth to the narrative any more than there is any ideal certainty to the events that happen in it. The way that Faulkner uses the multiple narrators serves the purpose of trying to figure out what is the truth of these events that took place throughout the story and this is what makes this novel such a success. Faulkner desires to enchant his audience and grasp their mind.
The essay is written in a stream- of -consciousness style, showing the multiplicity and complexity of the relationship between truth and freedom. The purpose of A Room of One’s Own was to comment on Women and fiction. However to achieve a conclusion on this statement she has to disentangle herself from a web of inextricable connections such as the relationship of truth and freedom; what women have to do to write fiction; and how does an artist create an intellectually-valued piece. Woolf’s approach is holistic. She says that she might “never be able to come to a conclusion” or produce “a nugget of pure truth” for her audience to take away.
At the age of thirteen, he spent most of his time focusing on writing poetry for the daily “La Manana”. In 1935, the Spanish Civil War commenced, and Neruda closely followed and recorded the events, including the execution of his friend Federico Garcia Lorca.

Following the war, he joined the Communist Party of Chile in 1945, but by 1948, he fled Chile because the government was after him.
