The tone of a poem is almost always driven by the rhythm and flow of the work. If a poem has a happy and upbeat feel then it is almost always about a happy subject or could even be a nursery rhyme. If a poem is more drawn out and has less lilt to it then it is generally about death and sadness. When it comes to some poems, however, the reader needs to take a closer look into the imagery of the poem to get a better feel for the true tone and what the author is trying to purvey. Imagery is the true indicator of how the tone of a poem should really feel and often gives clues to how the reader should be reading it.
The pictures and the silly stories kept me interested and wanting to read more. However, the very best thing about these books was the rhyming; the more it rhymed the better it was! After reading close to every Dr. Suess book possible, everything that I wrote had to rhyme. That must have been why I picked up writing poetry, because it held rhymes and rhythm. Even to this day I cannot bare to write a poem without it rhyming, it just does not carry as much as appeal (at least to me).
Although some people don’t enjoy writing, I claim that writing is magical because I believe it has many benefits. Writing is magical because by organizing ones thoughts in a journal can help facilitate problem-solving and therefore reduce stress of negative thoughts and troubling situations. I personally turn to journal writing rather than other forms of writing because I see it as a form of emotional release. As philosopher and psychologist William James once said”. If you can change your mind, you can change your life”.
The language used in rubbish at adultery is very formal. Although at the end of the poem, the poet puts ‘you’re just as crap at it’ and ‘you stupid, stupid git’. Throughout the poem the language is very formal, for example, words like: Diatribes, ought, and fidelity are used. Although an intellectual person would be able to understand these words, and this poem, without any trouble, others who aren’t so vocally diverse would struggle to interpret this poem in the same way. Whereas in our love now, the language used is very colloquial and also quite formal.
Although they were poets from the same time period, they were extremely different from each other. Emily Dickinson was more of a dark, serious person, whereas Walt Whitman was more at ease with himself, and seemed comfortable in his own skin. Throughout their works, Whitman and Dickinson ultimately contrasted from each other by their use of language, poetic device, and theme. While their backgrounds and writing styles were quite different, both Dickinson and Whitman challenged accepted forms of writing and are rewarded today as important poets. Between these two authors, the use of language and rhyme in their poems greatly differ.
Furthermore, from the poem, we were asked what happens to dream’s deferred and by the end of the play we were able to answer that. Although the poem poses many negative factors about dreams being deferred, A Raisin in the Sun opposes that and shows us that with hard work and courage deferred dreams can still come true. The Poem “A Dream Deferred” is important in many different aspects of the play. While reading the poem most readers learn this is what the author based her story on, Dreams. First off, the poem is important because the first sentence asks “What happens to a dream deferred?” which is the main question in the entire story that Hansberry is trying to answer by the end of her story.
Generally the love poem revolves around the feeling of love, the pain, the good & bad experiences in love & the ironies of being in love. But “Love Is Not All” talks only about love practically & do not want the person in love to behave blind & get into the selfish feelings. “Love Is Not All” is written gracefully & is very much focused on the title. The poet suggests falling into love because it is the most wonderful feeling in the world but also consider few facts to know the reality of that love before loving someone. “Love Is Not All” is a short 14 lines poem but is very effective poem dealing with the importance, momentary life & deepness of love.
In the poem To his Coy Mistress by Andrew Marvell the speaker seem to be infatuated with a woman to whom he is writing to. The manner in which Marvell writes may convince readers it is a love poem, but behind his poetic devices and use of language the writer seems to have a different objective then originally thought by the reader. The title of this poem is particularly important to its entire meaning. Marvell uses the two words his and coy to describe the mistress. Most people would say using my instead of his would have the same meaning, but they would be wrong.
These words are also very encouraging and eye-opening to me because I used to think the emotions described were a sign that I was not truly a writer. It is refreshing and comforting to know that even a successful novelist such as Waters experiences the doubt, fear, and strain that I feel when writing. This statement discredits the idea that writing is always fun and free-flowing. I feel like I can now, after reading this, write with a little more confidence because I know there are others out there—groaning, wondering, and panicking—just like
The plot revolves around them and what happens to them. I believe that a story without characters is like the earth without humans; it would be incomplete! I don't think it's necessary to like the character, but more so important to at least be able to identify with the character. An interesting character should have at least one flaw or weakness, perfect characters don't draw in my attention as well. In the short story "The Yellow Wallpaper", the author, Charlotte Perkins, does an excellent job of painting a picture of the main character.
