Jim Perrin uses a variety of descriptive and informative language in his article when talking about the differences between the Welsh hills in the summer and winter months. In the opening few paragraphs use of adjectives and creates a stunning picture of the fells in the readers head. He describes the hills as the “shapeliest” of British hills and says that only musical notation can describe their stature. Musical notation is believed by some to be the most graceful and elegant creations at the best of times which is how Perrin is portraying the mountains. Jim Perrin uses a strong contrast of positive and negative description to persuade the reader that the winter seasons bring more out of Snowdonia than the summer months.
“Fifteen” is generally considered one of the finest poems in the collection and shows Stafford’s simple narrative style. William Edgar Stafford was born in Hutchinson, Kansas, on January 17, 1914, to Ruby Mayher and Earl Ingersoll Stafford. The oldest of three children, Stafford grew up with an appreciation for nature and books (Life Story par. 1). During the Depression, the family moved from town to town as his dad searched for jobs.
He also twists in some tricky order of word use to make it difficult to read through without having to stop and re-read a line. To me, his imagery portrays the perfect procession into the woods on a beautiful autumn day. The use of the adjective yellow really makes the entire poem for me. There are many interpretations of what the poem actually means. Some feel that the sigh near the end is a sigh of relief because choosing the path less taken made all the difference in a positive way.
Nostalgically wonderful author and narration of this poem and poet. Gary Soto’s Bio, is very interesting and written in a decade of with I can understand. Gary Soto is also the protagonist as well as the narrator in this simple poem of Oranges and a girl. The cool days of winter, and a road, the chocolate, the coin and oranges of California in his pocket. This poem is one of his many poems in his first collection of poems, would include, “The Elements of San Joaquin”, (MrAfrica@Akoot.com), just to mention one for example, in which he went on to win the United States Award for international poetry in 1976.
My first reading choice this summer was The Catcher in the Rye by J. D. Salinger. I found many connections and examples of aspects from Thomas C. Forester’s How to Read Literature Like a Professor and I’ve chosen the ones that stand out to me and give the most proof throughout the novel. In the tenth chapter, “It’s More Than Just Rain or Snow,” of How to Read Lit, Forester explains how there is always a reason the author included certain weather in the the setting of a novel and that it has an underlying meaning. Snow is known to symbolize challenges and unhappiness but can also can symbolize death, loneliness, or depression. The main character in The Catcher in the Rye, Holden Caulfield, is a very cynical teenageer who has had traumatizing events happen in his life that have caused him to debate connecting with other humans on an adult level or rejecting that thought entirely and categorizing the world as phony, all while trying to relive his childhood.
“Paul Revere’s Ride” is a very well written poem and is a very extravagant poem. “The Charge of the Light Brigade” was a very hard poem to read, but is very exploring into the world of war. Both poems were enjoyable to read and fun. As these poems show life before our time was very hard-fought and amazingly
It’s seems like the poem just talk about the beautiful scenes, in fact, behind the beautiful scenes, what William wants to express is the transition of his mood while the second time he visits the same place. From a specific aspect, he writes this poem to commemorate his childhood since he is not innocent anymore. At the end of the poem, he doesn’t forget about her beloved sister Dorothy. This poem also shows his love to his younger sister and who is also his best friend. “Lines Composed a Few Miles above Tintern Abbey” is not only a pastoral poem; it’s also a meaningful poem.
There is also the presence of a dilemma in the mind of the character between the transcendental and material forces working around him. The language used by Frost is simple and conversational though lyrical in tone. There is also evidence of occasional use of archaic poetic diction. The opening poem of A Boy’s Will “Into My Own” considers the dilemma in the mind of the speaker or the youth between the imaginative world of transcendence and the world of reality. The speaker wishes that he would like to ‘steal away’ into the vastness of ‘those dark trees .
Wright shows us what many of us have to face during our lifetime in his poem. Wright’s poem is effective because it includes visual images, a clear theme and a strong mood. Wright tries to explain the scene in detail. Therefore he includes visual images in his poem. Wright states : a pretty fourteen-year-old maybe, in black denim jacket and skirt not designed with your midwinter night wind chill factor in mind; one who somewhat resembled a very tall child who’d botched her first attempt at trying on her mother’s make up.
This poem is a free verse poem with eight stanzas containing two couplets. In addition, there is no consistent rhyme scheme, although it has some rhymes: “thumb” and “gun” (in the first two lines); “sound”, “ground” and “down” (in the second stanza); and “men like them” (line 28). Moreover, it is written in first person narrative; we can see that in the first line of the first stanza: “Between my finger and my thumb”. Related to the title, it is only when we have read the poem carefully when we realise that all the three generations are involved in digging: his grandfather dug turf, his father dug up potatoes, and he is digging up his memories and his past. So, the title is good and right, because reading it we can guess more or less about what we are going to be told in the poem; at least Tenses used by Heaney: the poem begins in the present tense as Seamus Heaney describes seeing his elderly father straining among the flowerbeds, then it goes into the past tense when he remembers his father and grandfather at work.
