The playful tones also cover up some phrase like in the “lap the miles” and “lick the valley up”, the verbs seems to be fresh and energetic. What I can find is quite shallow, but I think Emily Dickinson, in this poem, I LIKE TO SEE IT LAP THE MILES, use a train as the imagery for this poem, it become more like a riddle because she imagining train as an animal such as horse which it can run so fast like a train. It is hard to catch the imagery of this poem when people especially me just read I LIKE TO SEE IT LAP YHE MILES once and not reread to understand better. The more I reread this poem, the imagery of a train become more visible, I start to feel it and imagine the train climb up the mountain and run down to the peak of the mountain. The words “Complaining all the while, horrid, hooting stanza” (line 11-12) shows that the writer begin to enjoy the flow of the poem by using alliteration for “horrid” and “hooting”
A Lady of Letters ‘You’re funny you, Irene. You don’t mind being in prison.’ You don’t hear or see very often someone enjoying himself or herself in prison but for Miss Ruddock in “A Lady of Letters” that’s exactly what we do see. It’s a monologue by Alan Bennett and it’s well known due to how well Bennett exploits the comic genre. In this essay I will analyse Bennett’s use of structure, characterisation, theme and humour. I will also comment on the relevance to modern society for example, loneliness and isolation.
In most of her works, O’Connor describes the scenery and lifestyle of the Deep South and her characters speak with a southern dialect, reflecting her background. “She possessed a keen ear for southern dialect and a fine sense of irony and comic timing; with the combination of these skills, she produced some of the finest comedy in American literature”(Gordon). Even though she spent the last years of her life battling Lupus, O’Connor did not let the limitations of her disease stop her writing. Characterization is a process that authors use to help craft their characters and create rich images of them for
November Graveyard Analysis ‘November Graveyard’, by American poet Sylvia Plath, was written in a somewhat unique manner in comparison to the rest of her poems (the ones we had studied). Plath had used the poem as a representation of nature’s rather negative yet honest depiction of death and putridity. However, in order to apply this portrayal to reader’s minds the poet puts an emphasis on the images, efficiently sorting them into groups. By doing this, she is moving the poem in a particular direction while maintaining the same backdrop throughout the poem. This brings forth the message of the poem in the end.
Explore how Dickinson presents the concept of fear in her poem ‘A narrow Fellow in the Grass’. Compare and contrast this with her other poems. Emily Dickinson has become one of the most well-recognized poets of the nineteenth century, with her creations of literature still being explored and evaluated to this day. Her utilization of a strange rhythm in all of her poems - due to consistently uneven rhyme schemes and caesuras - combined with metaphoric discussion of themes that were seen as not suitable for Victorian society (notably death, nature and the human psyche) meant that Dickinson’s style of writing is easy to differentiate from other poets of her time. While Dickinson herself was very open and comfortable with the ideas of death, she understood that for many people this was not the case, and so presents the concept of fear very clearly in her poem ‘A narrow Fellow in the Grass’.
One way in which she does this is by using specific language to give the poem a sense of loneliness and separation, for example when she writes: ‘in a lonesome place’ and ‘corridors’. She illustrates to the readers that the mind can produce images that are much more terrifying than realistic experiences. Your ‘brain’ is more likely to haunt you than a ‘ghost’. Another way she compliments the poem with language is her use of horror language: ‘haunted’, ‘assassin’. These are both threatening words, which can imply that the brain can imagine things that are much scarier than reality.
Unique ways to personify Death In many different ways death can be personified and by many people, But by three very unique authors they personify death each in a very simple way and compared to The Book Thief they are very different. Emily Dickinson is unique because all of her poems can be sung to the same song. She personifies death in her poem as friendly when she states “We passed the school, where children strove, we passed the fields of grazing grain, and we passed the setting sun”. It seems that death and the body do everything together. Also the poem all together is flat compared to the book which is more round compared to the state of beings death is.
Finally her economy of language was an element of her poetry which her ideas accessible to wide audience we see this technique used in all of her poems, particularly “I Heard a Fly Buzz When I Died” Firstly, Dickinson’s poetry stands apart for its ability to explore themes, such as, death. Her seclusion may have contributed to her obscure view point. She had a morbid fascination with death; however her portrayal of it was largely positive. She was strongly influenced by religion, although she didn’t conform to conventional religion, this theme is explored in “There’s a Certain Slant of Light” even the title of this poem depicts Dickinson’s optimistic side even in the evident darkness she can see a certain glimmer of hope. Dickinson speaks of the “Heavenly Hurt… Sent us of the Air” Dickinson suffered bouts of depression which often led to oppressive verse like this “Winter Afternoons- That oppresses, like the Heft Of Cathedral Tunes”.
She often exprienced "periods of unhappiness and questioning the loyalty of her friends" witch became her motivation to really begin writing. She talks about death and anti-love in many of her stories. That became her niche, and she used that to her advantage. Both authors seem to write about diffrent topics but try to reach the same audience
The Simpsons paradox is free to decode the poem as they desire, and they often kept exactly loyal to Poe’s original text creating a different meaning using only visual effects and erratic voices. At the beginning of the segment, Lisa’s voice merges into the voice of James Earl Jones (the Narrator) and the first lines of “The Raven:” are heard. One way The Simpsons used to satirize Poe’s poem was to interpret the original poem in a comically literal method. The Simpsons made fun of the rich, rhythmic language that “The Raven” is known for. The Simpsons pointed out how comical some of Poe’s supposedly deep, gloomy lines are if they were read individually of the rhythm.
