Nonsense in Lewis Carroll's Poem Jabberwocky - Nonsense in Lewis Carroll's Poem "Jabberwocky" Roland Barthes’ "Toys" expresses the idea that French toys revolve around convention, preparing children to be adults by allowing them to repeat normal adult activities without much imagination. However, one only has to look in any modern toy store to see that today’s American toys focus more on imagination, not imitation. In contrast, however, children are usually taught language based on convention; certain words have set meanings and certain sounds do not mean anything when put together....   [tags: Lewis Carroll Jabberwocky Poet Essays]

Similar Themes in The Krakne by Tennyson and Carroll´s Jabberwocky - Tennyson and Carroll employ the same poetic techniques, such as third person narration, rhyme, manipulation of rhythm and meter, and descriptive language. However, each poet manipulates these techniques to represent their monsters as very different beasts. Both monsters are depicted, not through in-depth physical description, but through colourful imagery. Carroll gives some direct description, through metaphor, explaining that the Jabberwocky has "eyes of flame" (Carroll, in Muldoon, 1998, pp.135-136), but much of its nature is conveyed through action....   [tags: Poem, Monster]

Galumphing Back: Lewis Caroll's The Jabberwocky - “The Jabberwocky” is nonsense. Then again, so are Shakespeare’s works. Both contain words and phrases created by the authors who wrote them. Origin wise, “scuffled”, first heard in Antony and Cleopatra, is not unlike “slithy” or “gyre”. Emily Dickenson’s “I Could Not Stop for Death” is just as illogical as Carroll’s work. Both Dickenson and Carroll’s poems contain characters, which, in literal form, are non-existent in reality. One poem is just as hard to understand as another is. The difference between the three above poems, though, is that two live in the world of logical, adult understanding....   [tags: nonsense poems, poetry analysis]

A Comparison of "Jabberwocky" and "Hysteria" - Poetry and Function The consolidation of an artist's thoughts emerges in many ways. Through poetry, writers express themselves in the most lyrical and, more often, most concise way. All have carefully picked over the diction and structure of their pieces in order to precisely articulate their intention. The conventional forms, such as a sonnet, leave the poet with certain methods to emphasize their meanings. Nowadays, free verse is the more popular type of poem, as it gives the poet leave to mess with or completely disregard grammar, pattern, and rhyme....   [tags: Poetry]

Comparing Form and Content of Jabberwocky, The Raven, and Lady of Shalott - Comparing Form and Content of Jabberwocky, The Raven, and Lady of Shalott       In many poems, the use of imagery and sound causes the reader to consider them to be "good" or "bad". Repetition, alliteration, the use of metaphors and images together with rhymes and the text itself work together to create that special feeling or message the poet wants to share. The Romantics believed that poetry should express the poet's feelings or state of mind and should not be worked with or thought through too much, since the original feeling thus would be lost, but in order to share your feelings or ideas to the public, I believe it is important to present them in as good a form as possible....   [tags: compare and contrast essay examples]
