The very first line, “She walks in beauty, like the night” (Line 1) is a simile. Byron is comparing her beauty to the beauty of the night. He believes that she is simply beautiful, and she has no clue about it. He goes on comparing her looks to certain subjects in the night. “And all that’s best of dark and bright,” (Line 3) “Thus mellowed to that tender light.” (Line 5) Those lines here, as well as in the whole poem, are in a b open form rhyming scheme.
The concept of the artists’ imagination as a separate entity, able to transcend the physical is a rather Romantic one. However Harwood does not limit the idea to only artists or poets in particular; she extends the creative drive to mean individual, spiritual passion. This allows the poem to appeal to a wider audience, as the reader is enticed with the idea of possessing a passionate self. The ‘space between love and sleep” is an intangible time between two definite states of universal human experience. The phrase incites the reader to reflect on such moments in their own life, and to consider “space” with renewed significance.
Edna St. Vincent Millay and Anne Bradstreet express both similar and different uses of literary elements such as theme, tone and style. This is made evident in the two love poems, “To My Dear and Loving Husband” by Anne Bradstreet and “Love is not all” by Edna St. Vincent Millay. The authors vividly convey the general idea of love to the audience and readers. Although both poems are similar, there are many differences between these poems as well. In Anne Bradstreet’s poem, “To My Dear and Loving Husband,” she intensifies the meaning of love by suggesting to the reader that she adores and loves her husband.
The interpretation of poems, plays, and stories will depend on the person’s thought and values of whoever is reading them. Thus, any theme derived from a body of work depends on that person’s interpretation. Robert Browning’s “My Last Duchess,” Henrik Ibsen’s A Doll’s House, and William Faulkner’s “A Rose for Emily,” each tell widely different stories about the life in the eighteen and nineteen hundreds. However, most would agree that there is an underlying theme of love in each author’s work. Each work of fiction demonstrates the differing aspects and motivations that can result from the feeling of love.
The process is just like weaving a rug: the words are the threads, the literary elements are the beautiful patterns, and the form and structure is the shape. This distinctive feature of Emily Dickinson’s poetry can been seen in almost all her poems, as it will be further discussed in the poem, “Because I Could Not Stop for Death—.” In this poem, Dickinson inspires the readers with a different interpretation of death and immortality, speaking from the viewpoint of eternity. She exposes the beauty of death through most notably, the vivid imagery, other exquisitely exercised literary elements, and the poem’s unique form and structure. The creation of imagery is the soul of poetry. Emily Dickinson dresses the scene such that mental picture of sigh, feeling and sound come to life.
The Lady of Shalott Alfred Lord Tennyson makes the story in “The Lady of Shalott” intriguing through an array of well-crafted and note worthy techniques. The charming and magnificent poem takes the reader through a selection of emotions. In the first of the four part poem, Tennyson uses metonymy and contrast to make the story in the poem captivating, Tennyson also uses foreshadowing to hint at the unavoidable fate of the Lady. In the second part of the stimulating poem, Tennyson uses pun to describe to the reader the dire situation in which the Lady of Shalott has found herself. Later on Tennyson uses catalogue to illustrate the activities in Camelot, in addition, towards the end of the part is where the rising action takes place.
Exploring Human Hurt and Loss in Carol Ann Duffy's Poems Carol Ann Duffy has written a wide range of popular books and poems. War Photographer, Valentine, Stealing, Mrs Tilscher’s Class, and Before You Were Mine, each appear to portray a particular aspect of her life, be it past or present. There is no doubt that pain and loss are part of these aspects, as she includes these emotions in all of her pieces. Each poem is easy to understand, however extremely powerful in its meaning. Carol Ann Duffy mentioned concerning her own work “I like to use simple words but in a complicated way”.
The Holy Temple In the poem The Holy Temple the author uses literary devices and imagery to get his message across. In the poem the author, in contrast to the title, is talking about a woman or women and how he longs for a relationship with one. He speaks on how beautiful a woman is, how soft a woman is, how precious a woman is, and how delicately created a women is. It seems to me that in the poem the author idolizes every inch of a woman and this is why he refers to her body as well as titles the poem The Holy Temple. As I stated in the first paragraph, the author uses many different literary devices to make his message clear.
