Even before one reads this book they cannot understand what it truly means to break away from hardship and into love without reading and comprehending the passion and love in each and every line of this poetry. Thus, I will explain to you why exactly I feel this form of poetry is good if not the best way to express ones experience with falling in love! For instance, the very first page of Street Love says it all. It explains where Junice comes from, where she has grown up, and how this life has made her who she is today! Page one (1), line thirteen, states “Harlem is not an easy place to grow old” – and this is very much backed up throughout the story in her case.
Furthermore, they made me to focus more on one aspect of the poem than the others. I was significantly drawn to the aspect of old age and its prevalent connotations. This is due to the manner in which the author applied the literary elements all through. I cannot deny the great relevance of the above elements on my experience. William Carlos Williams makes great use of several elements in the presentation of the poem.
Both poets use both color as well as natural imagery in order to depict the emotions of these women throughout the length of the poems. In Plath’s ‘Spinster’, the protagonist in the poem realizes that she does not desire to share her life with this man because it may result in her losing control over her own life, Duffy’s ‘Havisham’ is a reimagining of Dickens’ infamous spinster, and ‘Mrs. Midas’ is a poem written from the viewpoint of the wife of the mythological King Midas, who had a wish granted which caused everything he touched to turn to gold. The use of color within the poems “Spinster” and “Havisham” are portrayal of the feeling of the speaker at the given moment in the poem The use of color within the poems “Spinster” and “Havisham” are a portrayal of the feeling of the speaker at the given moment in the poem. It can be noted that brighter, vibrant colors, appear at the beginning at the poem, and begin to deteriorate into bleaker, darker colors as the poem progresses, along with the speaking voices emotions.
In “The Author To Her Book” by Anne Bradstreet, the speaker who takes on the role of an author, displays her insecurities for a piece of literature she has written. Through the extended series of comparisons between the speaker’s poems and her children and the vivid personification, the poet expresses the strong and intimate bond she develops for her work and her ambivalent feelings towards it. Also, Bradstreet’s self-deprecating poem explores the idea of perfection in literature. Firstly, the title reveals the relationship between the author and her book. The tone of the title is set apart from the rest of the poem.
The words were somewhat difficult to understand since this was written in the 1800s. The phrase “when thou art gone, I hate the sound (though those who speak be dear) Which breaks the lingering echo of the tone Thy voice of music leaves upon my ear.” Images: Did the poet create strong images? What could you see, hear, smell, taste, or feel? The poet created strong images of the bright, blue sky and the quiet stars. There was solitude that she created with her words that was very powerful.
This is the theme of Love. I know this because William Shakespeare explains within every line of Sonnet 116 that love is forever and unbreakable. Marvell also uses the theme of love, but slightly differently. Marvell tries to persuade his mistress that he loves her, when really he just wants sexual intercourse with her. He uses persuasion at the start of the poem, but then starts charming his mistress by saying he’ll love her once they have sexual intercourse.
She dwelt among the Untrodden ways William Wordsworth was a Romantic poet who believed that poetry was an overflow of feelings and emotion according to what he wrote in the Preface to Lyrical Ballads. His poem "She Dwelt in Untrodden Ways," part of the grouping called the Lucy poems, certainly shows the reader a wealth of emotions. The Lucy poems "variously ordered in different editions tell...of an uneasy courtship, blissful domestic life, and abrupt and devastating loss" (Jackson). According to most, the Lucy poems are seen as a "lyrical sequence," according to Mark Jones, but that interpretation may be much too simple. However, in any event, the power of Wordsworth's poetry is undeniable and the feelings that he brings forth are remarkable.
All throughout the poem, the speaker addresses this woman in a kind of mini-drama in which only one voice is heard. (Browning uses much the same technique in "My Last Duchess"). In "The Flea," however, the woman responds through her actions if not through her words, thereby making the poem even more dramatic. Some poems actually contain dialogue between two or more characters, thus making them even more dramatic in the literal sense of the word. Some of the poems in the final third of Edmund SpenserAmoretti sonnet sequence display this feature.
When reading a poem in terms of the deconstruction ideas, there are always several layers of meaning for each individual word and for the punctuation or lack-there-of as it was in Emily’s case. There are also obvious meanings that change with each reading depending on punctuation and line breaks. In Emily’s poems there is a notable lack of punctuations and an overuse of dashes, which she is now famous for, that helps place more emphasis on how the poem
Shrouded Sorrow Robert Frost is known for writing about the beauty and majesty of New England. Although on first read this seems to be just another one of these simple poems, he actually uses breaks, cadence, figurative language, and a flexible persona in his poem “Never Again Would Birds’ Song be the Same” to deal with death and grief in his life. Without multiple stanza common to many poems, Frost had to rely on end-stops and enjambments to create meaning through breaks just as we must rely on them to interpret his meaning. More than half the poem uses enjambment; however, this brings emphasis to the end-stopped lines. Whenever Frost end-stops a line, the next seems to to take on a tone of mild opposition.
