Browning over-exaggerates the features and beauty of the nature of England almost making them come alive with her use of personification. The poem is very descriptive and also plays on all the five senses. She shows the sense of taste with the use of the word ‘sweeter’ in line 12, ‘ Made sweeter for the step upon the grass’ and also line 20, ‘Fed full of noises by invisible streams,’ the sense of hearing is shown using the word ‘noises.’ Browning also used the repetition to give the reader a sense of continuity. She shows that nature is evergreen and will be omnipresent in this world. This can be seen with the repetition of words like ‘the’ and ‘and’.
“I taste a liquor never brewed” by Emily Dickinson describes the importance of nature to her. Through Dickinson’s use of images and figurative language she shows that nature can be as intoxicating as any alcoholic drink. To begin with, Dickinson’s uses of figurative language can be seen throughout the poem. When Dickinson uses figurative language, she also paints images in the minds of her readers. She accomplishes this by describing how she sees summer; “Reeling, through endless summer days, / From inns of molten blue.
Some of Monk’s works included: Manufactured Moon This poem was my favorite because it was completely different than any other poem I had come across. It was a collection of poetical emails and used funny language such as “hip hop squash” that was very appealing as an audience. The choice to do a collection of poems in an email format is a style I could see being copied as poets move forward in this era of advanced technology. The poem did show a heavily reliance on nature which is very common in poetry in my experience. She used lines like, “Where do birds sleep?” and other nature metaphors that give me the impression she was on a farm while writing this.
Hwawon Bae AP English 3 – 2nd period 12/10/09 IWA #2 Mary Oliver is a poet who is an “indefatigable guide to the natural world.” “Owls” shows us Oliver’s detailed perspective and emotional feeling on the big eyed, flying creatures; her love and respect towards them. Oliver’s style in writing conveys the complexity of her response to nature. Mary Oliver greatly exaggerates reverence to owls. Although they are simply animals, birds to be more specific, she refers to them like they are gods and very elevated. Oliver uses words like glory and delicate to show her thoughts on the owl.
The Ministers Black Veil and Nature How do they compare or do they compare? Both of these stories could fall in the romanticism line. Actual outdoor nature and human nature are both mysterious. Though neither is perfect in both stories it seems that is what we are looking for. When you read Emerson’s Nature you can feel how perfect he sees things.
The cartoon “Scenic Drive” by R.Cobb also exceedingly explores distinctive experiences in nature. We first gain the idea of nature in “Nesting Time” at the very beginning of the poem with the quote “Charming utterly disarming little bird” L2.Stewart describes the bird in behavioural terms and with the lack of commas used in the quote emphasizes the impression the bird has already left on the man and his daughter. The opening lines of “The Moths” which is “Such a blaze of snow, such a smoke of sleet, such a fume of moths in the air” however makes use of a recurring language pattern by the repetition of the phrase “Such a” to effectively illustrate the ‘snow’ and ‘sleet’ and as well as ‘fume of moths’ as it helps to capture the visual characteristics and features of nature. We gain an image of the shades of colour of the moths ‘snow-white’ as they blurring move and flicker in the light, moving as one massive unit through the air. Stewart brilliantly demonstrates the moths movements as the mass of moths move like a ‘wind’, assuming the colour of ‘dusk’ and enveloping the foliage and blossoms.
AP English 9-23 “I wandered lonely as a cloud” by William Wordsworth has both literal and interpretive SOAPStone’s. The literal subject on the poem is nature (field of daffodils, clouds), but the connotation of the subject is that a person should not be miserable because they have minor problems, in the quote “I wandered lonely as a cloud” (line 1) the speaker is alone but in “a poet could not be but gay” (line 15) explains that the speaker may be “lonely” but he finds/notices the positive rather than the negative. The denotative occasion in “I wandered lonely as a cloud” is romantic because of the poems connection to nature (examples of a connection to nature is the use of words such as “clouds” “vales, hills” and “daffodils”), the connotative is similar to the denotative but it also includes the comparison between people to nature. The literal audience of the poem is the general romantic crowds (mainly in the romantic era), the profound audience are people the speaker wants to notice/appreciate natures positives and beauty, most lines of the poem use personification (in this case human traits to nature within a field of daffodils) in situations that would seem undesirable if used with human figures rather than natural figures such as “daffodils … fluttering and dancing in the breeze”(lines 4-6) which give a pleasant image to the reader. The literal purpose of the poem is to inspire the reader to be outside and enjoy nature, but the deeper purpose of the poem is to encourage the reader to be more optimistic/or look at the positive, when the speaker states that he is lonely he also mentions natures beauty and clarifies “a poet could not but be gay” because of his experience with nature.
In the opening line of the poem, MacCraig provides the reader with a simile, comparing the ___________________ to _____________________________. This description is also oxymoronic as lightning is described as ‘tame’, whereas is nature lightning is often wild, explosive and threatening. By comparing ‘straws’ to ‘tame lightnings’, MacCraig gives the impression ………………………………………………… Another descriptive device is given in the run-on line in relation to the straws which ‘ hang …………………..’ which suggests that …………………………………… . In the second line of the first line a simile is used again ‘green as glass’. Here the poet is describing …………………………………………….
Have you practiced so long to learn to read?” I feel as if Whitman is saying that everybody has seen a thousand acres, everybody is constantly exposed to the Earth, but do you really experience it? Do you really read it and understand it? Both authors made a very clear theme in their writings that nature is an amazing human-like spirit. Emerson and Whitman both have this idea that you need to experience things on your own to really understand them. Yes, somebody can tell you something, or you can read a fact, but until you really feel it or until you find the truth yourself, you will never fully understand.
