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.
FROST VS. WILLIAMS Robert Frost and William Carlos Williams have different styles of writing poetry. In Robert Frost’s poem “ Gathering Leaves “, Frost explores the repetitiveness and mundanity of human lives. In Contrast, in William Carlos Williams poem “ Between Walls”, he discusses the exceptions that exist in such a mundane and plain world. While both poems are interesting, “Between Walls” is easier to read and more interactive with the reader which makes the poem more fun to read and analyze. Robert Frost uses rhyming scheme and imagery to help the reader feel the poem.
This physical journey in the country acts as a temporary escape from reality. In this poem, Skrzynecki also reminds the responder of the physical journey as an escape from the tedium of ordinary existence but the natural beauty of the place does not separate the poet’s discontentment from the thoughts of his usual life. The poem has a relatively regular stanza structure- 7/8 line stanza but the last two are shorter. Free verse but some implied rhyme (shed, wind, hands) created through assonance and alliteration. The poem has rhythm of conversational speech and assonance and alliteration (e.g.
In regards to literature in both of their eras, it becomes seemingly and obviously so that Whitman both inspired and paved the way for Ginsberg. Both Walt Whitman and Allen Ginsberg are reflecting upon political and cultural controversies they are experiencing in the times they are living in. While they again are living in different times and generations, they both are writing in respects to their own personal thoughts and opinions regarding their own personal political and societal changes within their current America. However, this is not where the similarities of the two end, while the likeness is expressed in the content of both author’s works, the structure and style in which each poem is written is also notably alike. Walt Whitman writes his poem in independent stanzas that despite flowing flawlessly with the rest of the poem could just as effortlessly tell a story on their own.
The Haunter Imaginatively, and most pathetically, Hardy writes this plaintive and moving poem from the point of view of Emma. It is written in the first person, with her as the imaginary narrator. It is almost as if, in putting these words in the mouth of Emma (who, in the poem, sees Hardy as oblivious of her presence) Hardy is trying to reassure himself that she forgives him and continues to love him. Detailed commentary Though Hardy does not know it, Emma's phantom follows him in his meanderings, hearing, but unable to respond to, the remarks he addresses to her in his grief. When Emma was able to answer Hardy did not address her so frankly; when she expressed a wish to accompany him Hardy would become reluctant to go anywhere - but now he does wish she were with him.
Whereas in our love now, the language used is very colloquial and also quite formal. Although the poet writes about common sorts of things, the language is complex. The poet uses words like prevails. As in the last poem, an intellectual person would have no troubles understanding the language or the situation, a less vocally diverse person would perhaps struggle a little bit. The structures of the poems differ quite a lot.
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.
Although Robert Frost appeals to the common man, he gives a deeper meaning in most of his poems. In the poem there are many sound devices such as a rhyme scheme, consonance, and alliteration. In line one, Frost says “world will.” The repeating of the W sound gives alliteration. He also gives another example at the end of line four when he ends it with “favor fire.” In line six, Frost shows consonance by saying, “think I know enough” with the repeating sound of the consonant N. Along with his poetic devices, he also has a rhyme scheme which appeals to the reader and makes it easy to read and connect to the narrator. Frost’s poem centralizes around the metaphors of fire and ice.
Hemingway has used his style to captivate readers of the novel The Sun Also Rises with the use of his most famous and praised concepts and theories to highlight the complex characterization, symbolism, themes, the setting and motifs throughout The Sun Also Rises which definitely kept the reader entertained. In The Sun Also Rises Hemingway’s style is simple, direct and somewhat plain and he avoids using direct statements and descriptions of emotion. He never explicitly states that Jake and the other expatriates’ lives are aimless or that their aimlessness is as a result of the war. However he implies these ideas through the use of the characters’ emotional and mental lives and hence the theme of aimlessness is brought out effectively. Hemingway uses few adjectives and adverbs, he writes concise and vivid dialogue and readers are able to read between the lines to gain
Whether the character is fictional or not, the poem was easy to relate to because they were based on life experiences and emotions that most people are familiar with. The poem triggered emotions that would make you think about what was truly important, being accepted by the society or one's happiness. "Funeral Blues", in this poem, the writer uses regular verse and traditional pattern of rhythm and rhyme to give impact to his unexpected imagery of the end of a relationship
