Analysis of Lowell's Poem, Patterns - “Patterns,” Amy Lowell explores the hopeful of women in the early 20th century through a central theme. A woman’s dream of escaping the boundaries that society has placed on her dissipates when she learns of her lover’s untimely death. She also expresses her emotions and what she truly feels. She mustn’t show any form of feeling, so she feels as if there is “not softness anywhere” about her. Confined by “whalebone and brocade,” the speaker continues to live up to the expectations society enforces upon her....   [tags: poetry, poem analysis] 1194 words

Poem Explication: “This Lime-Tree Bower My Prison” - Throughout life, we have all experienced the loneliness of being excluded at some point or another. In “This Lime-Tree Bower My Prison,” Samuel Taylor Coleridge shows how his experience with this resentful jealousy matured into a selfless brotherly love and the acceptance of the beneficial effects some amount of denial can have. Each of the poem’s three stanzas demonstrates a separate step in this transition, showing Coleridge’s gradual progression from envy to appreciation. The pervading theme of Nature and the fluctuating diction are used to convey these, while the colloquial tone parallels the message’s universal applications....   [tags: Poem Analysis]

Analysis of John Donne's Poem, The Flea - The Flea John Donne’s poems are similar in their content.

Emily Dickinson’s Poem It Was Not Death - In Emily Dickinson’s poem “It Was Not Death”, Dickinson is stuck in a mental state of hopelessness and despair which she cannot define nor understand.

The poem is written in ballad meter as it consists of four line stanzas that contain alternate lines of iambic tetrameter followed by iambic trimeter.

The Symbolism of Hands in Jon Stallworthy’s Poem - Jon Stallworthy’s poem is about the narrator comparing the nature of his hands to his father’s hands and more importantly, how it reflects their difference in personal abilities. The narrator says “hands so alike- spade palms, blunt fingers, short in the join - would have no more in common”, translating to even though their hands may be identical in terms of the physical appearance however, they are poles apart when it comes to their skills and functions. This quote directly links to the choice of the author’s title because “Two Hands” not only sets the theme of the poem but it is also built upon the idea of how two hands can look so similar and yet have such variance in their roles....   [tags: Poem Analysis, Poetry] 736 words

Class Struggle in Robert Frost's Poem Out, Out - Class Struggle in Robert Frost's Poem Out, Out- Robert Frost's poem "Out, Out-" is developed around a clear and unquestionable moment: a horrifying accident in which a young boy is mutilated by a buzz saw. Frost's underlying message, however, isn't nearly as straightforward. As the poem develops, two clear levels of interpretation seem to surface. While on the basic level the poem would seem to be a simple metaphor for man's struggles with nature, a more careful analysis suggests a level of interpretation far more relevant to humanity as a whole....   [tags: Robert Frost Out Essays Poem Poetry ]

Parent-Child Relationships in the Poems Refugee Mother and Child, Poem at Thirty-Nine and Piano - In Refugee Mother and Child, the nature of relationship portrayed between a mother and child is very tender and personal.

The Jaguar Poem - "The Jaguar" is about a trip that Hughes made to the zoo. In the poem, he describes the animals in a zoo and their behaviour. It compares the apes, parrots, tiger, lion and a boa constrictor to the jaguar, which is an animal that lives differently to the others in the way that it views its life. The poem begins by describing the apes 'yawning' and 'adoring their fleas', and the fact that they are in the sun adds to the sleepy air. I think this line was deliberately chosen to convey the monotonous lull of everyday life in the zoo and set a drowsy mood....   [tags: Ted Hughes] 1310 words

Once in a While a Protest Poem - ... Although Axelrod establishes a connection to the reader, he is particular with his word choice, choosing words carefully to secure his meaning and idea of inclusion of those reading the papers and exclusion of those experiencing famine. A fine example of this would be his choice of the word “tit” instead of a kinder word like breast, then proceeding to adding appalling adjectives such as “dried-out” and “withered”(Axelrod 2, 5). The effect this word creates is dehumanization of those suffering, since “tit” often refers to the breast of an animal; making the anguish less relatable....   [tags: Literary Analysis, David Axelrod] 870 words

Wheatley's Patriotic Poem - ... All in all, Wheatley uses allusions in “To His Excellency General Washington” to stress the merit of the American Revolution. In conjunction with allusion, the diction of Wheatley’s poem supports the value of the American Revolution. Wheatley uses many sophisticated words in her writings due to her extensive education. Literary critic Anne Applegate surmised that because of this background, in Wheatley’s poems, “Her diction is highly stylized and elevated.” (124). While this word choice often works to emphasize a specific attribute about a person or an idea, in the case of Wheatley’s poem to George Washington her diction simultaneously creates the impression that the American Revolution is an honorable cause....   [tags: Poetry Analysis ]

Stein asserts that, although he certainly caught some of the nuance of Heine's work, Schumann often ignored the text's "caustic" and "ironic" components which results in a "sweetening and sentimentalizing of Heine's sharp, pointed verse."
