When a person is in love with someone else, or maybe because of other events, he/she may pour all he/she feels into a form of writing called poem, some words which are arranged in certain pattern that contains a lot of meanings. From writing the poem, our feeling which can’t be spoken, could expressed with more strong meaning inside word by word. And in this writing, the writers discussed about a poet titled “Sympathy” by Emily Bronte. Instead of concerning that this writing is given as a task, the writers find out that “Sympathy” is a love poem. That gives an interesting impression in how she expressed her feeling about love.
The tone is set as Wordsworth states in his first stanza: Strange fits of passion have I known: And I will dare to tell, But in the lover's ear alone, What once to me befell (Poem Hunter, 2011, pg.8). Wordsworth sets the tone that he only wants serious readers who have known love to read his poem. The reader must have a full understanding of love and the passion that comes along with love to be able to sympathize with Wordsworth about his feelings for Lucy. The author uses several different types of poetic devices. The significance of the title in this poem is crucial to the reader understanding just how that the
The imagery found in this piece is used to emphasize on the more hopeful emotion, which prepares the reader for the shift into the next stanza. To give her emotions more of a realistic appeal, Leona personifies the features and qualities of love. By doing so, she creates a depth to the love she's describing, which allows her to speak of love so painfully and encouraging at the same time. Leona tells us that her "heart's crippled by the vein that I [she] keep[s] on closing." We find Leona conflicted between what she wants, what she feels, and what everyone is telling her.
The repetition of ‘only then…’ suggests the slow painstaking process of trying to mend his wounds. The poet also uses structure effectively to convey the meaning of the poem. Different injuries are being introduced in each couplet. The poem consists of rhyming couplets, this shows that it is only the two of them in this situation and that they had once connected before this incident which has separated them. The reader explores the husband’s body and mind the same way the wife has done.
White Room Jack Bruce and Pete Brown Explore how the poets have used a range of language techniques to convey a negative image. Without love and affection many will succumb to grief and regret. In the poem “White Room” by lyricists Jack Bruce and Pete Brown, a man shares his emotions towards a lost love and the sadness and depression caused by separation. The disorderly structure of the poem which is expressed in the jumbled imagery and stop-start stanza's, has been used to create a negative image of emotional difficulties and an unstable relationship experienced through heart break. As well as using metaphor, free verse, transferred empathy, refrain and litotes, the lyricists have used imagery to create a mental image of darkness and grief.
“Our Love Now”-Martyn Lowery In the poem, “Our Love Now,” written by Martyn Lowery, the poet effectively makes the two characters interesting and, hence, appeals to us as the reader. The poet establishes the poem as two lovers with conflicting thoughts; the persona wants to maintain the loving relationship, whereas the woman wants to stop the relationship and perpetuates that the relationship is “forever dead.” Lowery achieves the effect of making the characters interesting and by bringing into focus the two conflicting perspectives on the future of the relationship by making use of repetition, the usage of extended metaphors, and the overall structure of the poem. An aspect of the poem that makes the two characters thoroughly interesting is the poet’s usage of repetition. It can be observed that when the persona speaks, he makes use of the word “mend.” In the opening stanza, the persona claims that the “cut can be mended.” This is paralleled with the ending stanza of the persona where he says that “the breach” in the couple’s love “can be”, once again, “mended.” This repetition of the word “mended” shows his belief that the couple’s love can “heal” and that the “raging storm” or strife between the two “will soon be gone.” This makes the persona interesting to us as the reader and we see from this his relentless claims that the love between the two can be revived and will be “mended.” Repetition is also used distinctly in the woman’s dialogue, and the words “such is our love” is repeated. Interestingly, all but the last stanza of the woman’s dialogue contains the words “such is our love now,” whereas the last stanza merely says “such is our love.” This abrupt disappearance of “now” suggests that the woman feels that the loving relationship she had with the persona now belongs to the past, and this ultimately shows her reluctance to believe that the love can be
‘A Valediction’ explores the importance of the balance between physical and spiritual love. Harwood explores the nature of both form of love and how each is needed to develop ultimate love. Harwood suggests that poetry can offer comfort and deepen the human understanding of life and love. In ‘The Sharpness of Death’ Harwood explores the nature of love, life and death, and the relationship between each. Harwood highlights the extreme contrast in ones perception of love, life and death when influenced by either philosophy or poetry.
In “The Tide Rises, the Tide Falls” by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, which is an abstract diction and has deeper meaning lying inside it, the poet gives us a beautiful image by explaining different views in the poem .However; we can see the beauty of his art by understanding the deeper philosophical meaning beneath the poem. The poet used personification, metaphors, symbolism, synecdoche and refrain to compare the cycle of nature with cycle of life. The main message of this poem tells us that with all the different effects that we cause to nature, eventually nature will dissolve us, our experiences and ideas and continue on its path. The Persona in this poem is the poet himself who gives us different images from a town and it’s sea shore .In the first line of the first stanza “The tide rises, the tide falls “(l.1), the poet is talking about a repeating cycle in nature. By paying close attention, we see that at the end of all three stanzas in this poem, Longfellow used refrain by repeating the same line.
To love that well which _thou must leave ere long” there is a twist in which we may observe he is talking to his beloved and how their love is going to live forever. Shakespeare writes about the mortality of men in Sonnets 71 and 73. Even though they are both similar in context he uses different figurative language to help us understand both the tone and theme. In both sonnets the writer tries to say goodbye to the beloved one
He, therefore, allows the reader to become further engaged with the text. In this essay I will hope to examine how structure, language and form assist in either making Apologia pro Poemate Meo more or less effective as a poem compared to that of Birdsong. In Apologia pro Poemate Meo, by Wilfred Owen, Owen is apologising to the soldiers who he did not realise he needed till the end. Yet, at the same time he is thanking them for their bravery. Alternatively he tries to portray to readers the feeling of lost emotions, which the soldiers sense at the war front with other soldiers (or ‘brothers’).
