What similarities and differences do you note In their poems "To His Coy Mistress" and "The Nymph's Reply to the Shepherd, both Marvell and Ralegh look at perhaps the most cliched topic of poetry: 'love'. Through these poems Marvell and Ralegh successfully put forward their original and unique thoughts and feelings on the topic. Divided into three sections, "To His Coy Mistress" deals with the sexual tension of the male character and narrator of the poem, and his courting of the female character and audience of the poem, his 'coy mistress'. Amongst the emotion...

... Art and Poetry While the nature of art and literature has greatly shifted over the years, it’s clear there are a number of universal human concerns that have emerged across historical epochs and artistic mediums. When examining perhaps the most central artistic mediums of the preceding centuries, one notes the strong importance of literature, poetry, and the visual arts. Even as these mediums vary greatly in form, in many instances the themes they explore rest along the same spectrum of human existence. When examining such prominent forms of artistic expression, it’s clear that profound and powerful connections emerge. From an overarching critical perspective one notes that these three works of art...

... In the thirteenth century, Europe witnessed a shift from sacred to secular literature, and in Italy, compilations of poetry that expressed the poet’s experiences became popular; this shift in literary style reflected the shift from story telling and oral mediums to the written word. Holmes states that the shift to the written medium did not abandon the performative nature of oral storytelling; rather, “the first great anthologies of troubadour poetry can be seen as visual representation of oral texts or even as theatrical ‘stagings’ (via illuminations and reading aloud) of what was both a visual and an auditory experience” (2000, p. 3). Through this form of poetry, poets were able to reflect inwards ...

... April 13, Explication of "Perfect Dress" by Marisa de los Santos De los Santos "Perfect Dress" is a poem which describes the feelingsthat women have about social ideas of beauty. Although de los Santos does not explicitly call these feelings unrealistic and bad for womens self-esteem, the language choice throughout the poem makes it clear that the ideas are unrealistic, and that believing in them with one hundred percent of yourself is probably a bad idea. The poem opens with the image of finding "in a students journal, a blue confession / in smudged, erasable ink" (1-2). Even before we see what that confession is, a lot of detail can be found.

Witnessing nature from this point of view allows for Burns to capture a true aspect, as in its, "sounding shore" (1) and its "dashing roar" (2) its "deep green-mantled earth" (7) its "floweret's" (8) and its "azure skies" (13). Moreover, while his focus on nature is beautifully displayed, he finds a way to capture the joys of a human essence...

... Emily Dickinson's Poetry One of the wonderful aspects of poetry is its ability to appeal to the inner emotions of the reader despite having just a few lines. By employing a number of common literary devices, poets are able to present their readers with mental images which convey a depth of feeling far beyond the obvious meaning of the few words actually used. The reader is always aware of the fact that the writer likely intends something more in their lines. “The very making of a poem involves a transformation from perceived reality or experience into a verbal utterance shaped by the poet’s imagination and craft” (Pettit). The effectiveness of the poem will therefore depend to a great degree on the...

The production of literature in trying times is something that Hughes needs to be given credit for. His role in gaining for the Black population of the United States of America a life of dignity should not be underestimated; at the same time, his work needs to be critiqued and looked upon analytically.

Similarly, in the poem by Sylvia Plath, Daddy, imagery depicting emotion is dark and almost morbid. In examining these two pieces, one can draw similarities and contrasts between the two poets and their work. Specifically, within Dylan Thomas’ work, it was essentially the dialogue, the words which were important even more so than what those words meant. The use of metaphor and imagery into this particular piece are a classic example of this. Thomas used words as a brick layer may use mortar, the words served to hold the meaning in place, “what th...

However, critics argue that modernity has always been there, as young writers were always emerging.

As a consequence of reforms implemented to address such issue, the 19th-century English poetics in certain occasions is found to deal chiefly with the realistic rather than the romanticized view of life.

The name of the pool is a symbol of the shortness of their youth days. The youths defy their seniors and surround themselves with an atmosphere of mystery that makes them appear cool. The poet proceeds to narr...

... John Berryman's Life and Poetry: Henry Bones as the poet's alter-ego in The Dream Songs The Dream Songs (1964), John Berryman's Pulitzer Prize winning collection of beautiful 385 songs or poems, resembles a sonnet sequence and each song in the collection is composed in a three-stanza format, eighteen lines with rhyme. In The Dream Songs, Henry Bones, the white middle-aged American protagonist of the collection, speaks about himself and listens to his unnamed Friend who is a white American in blackface speaking Negro dialect. However, the protagonist interests the readers more as an alter-ego of the poet himself and the greedy, lusty, petulant character Henry can best be comprehended as Freud's Id....

... Task: Poetry paper Emily Dickinson is a famous American poet from the late 19th century. In her poem “I am Nobody! Who are you?” she shows experience in writing poems. By saying “I am nobody," the poetic voice tells readers that she is nobody meaning that she is not famous, but just an ordinary person who is doing what she likes without announcing it to the world. The poem keeps readers involved by asking questions that do not require answers leaving readers to wonder. This is interesting as it makes the readers ask and keep interested while reading the poem. From this point, Dickson ensures interaction with readers who at times find interests in particular parts only. By asking, “Who are you? Are y...

... Greek Poetry and Prose 2. 3 Words to Describe Achiles. Cocky You wine sack, with a dog's eyes, with a deer's heart. Never once have you taken courage in your heart to arm with your people for battle, or go into ambuscade with the best of the Achaians. No, for in such things you see death. He is not just a man of violent actions but also a man of violent words. This is not entirely common among men but he is surely an exception. He is not content to violently act, he needs to thrash talk and he had to do this in that in a seemingly witty way so much so that his insults are poetry. Egotist No more entreating of me, you dog, by knees or parents. I wish only that my spirit and fury would drive me to h...

... 'PARADISE LOST' MILTON BOTH ADOPTS AND ALTERS THE CONVENTIONS OF EPIC POETRY - A DISCUSSION "The noblest poem that ever was wrote in any language or in any age" [Sir John Denham Cited Wedgwood, 46] John Milton's Paradise Lost essentially belongs to the genre of epic poetry. Yet in retelling the biblical myth of God and Satan, Satan's enticement of Adam and Eve and their expulsion from the Garden of Eden, seeking to "assert the eternal Providence/ And justify the ways of God to men,"[Milton, I.26] Milton has perceptively shifted from the traditional track of epic narration, imaginatively transforming almost all the elements of epic narration- myth, history, form and language- into a classical, yet...

... The Fish is a poem by Elizabeth Bishop, and it documents the journey of a speaker from being detached from nature, to a situation where the speaker feels part and parcel of nature. The poem gives a suggestion that in the event of catching a fish, and releasing it back to the water, a bond is created (Bishop, 1983). This is because the fisherman sees the world through the eyes of the fish. The bond that exists between the fisherwoman and the fish emanates because of brief interacting of the aquatic world, together with the human world. Elizabeth Bishop better illustrates this notion by she denotes that the fisherwoman holds the fish, half out of water (Bishop, 1983). This means that the other half...

... of the Victorian Anguish in Mathew Arnold’s “Dover Beach” Mathew Arnold, the acclaimed poet and critic who lived in the Nineteenth Century actively shared the pervading anguish of the time. The century, which marked the Victorian Period, was in the tumultuous grip of the conflicting ideas propagated by religion and science. The Biblical story of creation detailed in Genesis was thrown to the winds by the revolutionizing Theory of Evolution propounded by Charles Darwin. Religious faith, man’s anchorage, was slipping away, offering no substitute. Arnold was obsessively concerned about the rise of materialism and the erosion of more enduring spiritual values. Standing in the direct line of poet-critics ...

... Emily Dickinson: Poet and Poetry Analysis Born in 1830, Emily Dickinson spent most of her time in Amherst, Massachusetts because she felt homesick living away from home. She was considered eccentric by locals who observed her as a shy person unwilling to greet guests and she would prefer maintaining friendships through correspondence. Her poetry was prolific but only a few were published during her lifetime, altered by the publishers to meet the conventional style of poetry. She went against the norm and found pleasure in the absence of a title, and incorporated capitalization and punctuation where unnecessary. She wrote more than four hundred poems including “Because I Could Not Stop for Death”,...
