How have poetic techniques been used to reveal significant ideas in Dransfield’s poems? Michael Dransfield was a renowned Australian poet. His way of addressing the audience was very different to conventional poetry. He was active in the 60’s when Australia was undergoing a drastic change due to both social awakening and also in terms of industrialization.

Literary Commentary In “July Man”, Margaret Avison delineates a bleak mood of sorrow and nostalgia for the beauty of the past through intricate diction, specifically the choice of adjectives, and sound. The morose image portrayed by the poet’s words reinforces the theme of the decomposition of nature and humanity. The structure of the poem is chaotic and spontaneous as there is no specific rhyme scheme and the length of the lines randomly alternate. Being a free verse poem perfectly fits the theme of decomposition for no order or structured standards are followed anymore and all aspects are breaking down, including the poem’s own stanzas. The stanzas are of extreme natures with the first one being nineteen lines long and the following one
Both poems very different; one political based and the other for the sake of a kiss, yet both used many literary feature in common such as imagery which was present in “England in 1819” for example when the speaker says “A people starved, and stabbed in the untilled field” or “mud from a muddy spring” strong vivid images are created in the imagination of the reader, the use of imagery plays in the favor of him by moving the feelings of the reader. While in “Love’s Philosophy” imagery was present all through like when the speaker says “the mountains kiss high heavens, And the waves clasp one another” or “And the moonbeams kiss the sea” all imagery used by the speaker in this poem play in his favor to convince his beloved.

Another thing that is quite clever is the way language is used for effect in Item 1. The feeling of guilt spreads throughout the text and is used by the reader as we can associate completely with the writer and his attitude to the poverty of the people living there. In comparison to St Lucia, Fethiye market portrays a place I would not want to visit as I would not want to feel guilty on holiday. St Lucia seems to have everything ‘the wild west…the even wilder east’, ‘romantic hideaway hotels and the swish tourist resort of Rodney Bay’. Fethiye market has no more than ‘seven pitiful apricots’.
These are all characteristics one can find in his poem “Hysteria.” In “Hysteria,” Martinez criticizes Americans for their superficiality while also rebelling and showing his confusion toward the culture.

Melbourne High School | A Discussion of John Donne's Poetry | Literature, Dr. Prideaux | Jasjit Singh Manpotra 11B | "Use one or more of the passages as a basis for a discussion concerning John Donne's poetic works" Despite the prevalent theme of love, most specifically the contradistinctive feathers of love, Donne's works, "To his Mistris Going to Bed", "The Sunne Rising" and "A Valediction forbidding mourning" describe an underlying tone of male dominance, the power of argument and egotism. The notable disparity in the disposition and the mannerisms of Donne's love poetry, with some poems being concerned with the mere physical, in that the narrator gives the appearance of interest solely in the woman's body, to the commemoration the purity of love and the refinement of it, so that the point of interest to the narrator is inner beauty alone. These varying views on love present an interesting scenario depicting the styles of love. The dominance of males, is one of the established underlying ideas in Donne's works. "To his Mistris Going to Bed" is a prime example.
It is the sound of met lips.” The text made me see how he uses stereotism and multi-cultural differences, making what I read interesting. Also how he used Paradox in places of the poems that may have seemed stranged but contained meaning and truth if you were reading it between the lines.
