Realize what words Poe wants to emphasize; “Sea” for example is repeated throughout the poem hinting the importance of the sea. “Lee” in the other hand stands out well for the obvious reason that Poe is madly in love with her. While, “me” is emphasized in a peculiar way because it’s not until the end that we see why “me” is so important (correlating to the depression he faces due to the parting of his beloved).

Ode on a Grecian Urn and Ode to a Nightingale and a part of Keat’s Greatest Odes of 1819. This paper will attempt a close reading first of Ode to a Nightingale and then a close reading of Ode on a Grecian Urn. A comparison of the two will follow the close readings. Keat’s Ode to a Nightingale opens with a declaration of the heartache and “drowsy numbness pains” that the speaker feels. He speaks to an unseen “light-winged Dryad of the trees,” a nightingale, of feeling a “drowsy numbness” from sharing in the nightingales happiness because it is singing of summer while sitting hidden in a plot of trees and shadows.
The voice tries to answer this by the repetition of "It is" referring to how important and huge it is. The whole poem portrays a visual image that conveys the idea of love as a fire, which provokes favorable pain. Mr. Peele accomplishes this with a bit of irony in the third line, "It is a pretty, pretty thing", emphasizing on how beautiful love is despite the "prick" and "sting". Also, the speaker handles an accurate use of memorable words creating a powerful feeling of the unstoppable cycle of love which fills our souls. This idea is perfectly transmitted with the phrase "Whose flame creeps in at every hole" and contrasted with "From whence do glance love`s piercing dart" bringing apart Cupid Angel whose arrows shock us but at the same time complement us.

Addiction is usually considered wrong and the fact that the persona refers to “Bluebeard” (a fairy tale pirate who used to kill his wives) compares their sins to Bluebeard’s. In the second stanza the berries start to rot and the enjoyment starts to fade away however the persona wants to linger on to it. This can be compared to the fact that all the enjoyments and pleasures of childhood seem to fade away but the desire for it to remain. The same blackberries become stinky and disgusting which reflects to the story of Death of a Naturalist.
Their poems consist of imagery and diction within the writing to demonstrate the tones in which contrast admiration and adoration to hatred and cruelty. Each author used diction to better portray the tone in their writings. In “To Helen”, King Menelaus is simply love struck by the most beautiful woman in the world.
