Throughout this poem, Pound associates the image of the Sargasso Sea with the woman’s communication... ... middle of paper ... ... of war. I also like how the poet represents the way his society divide and classify people according to their classes. I found the language of this poem is easy to read, and this is because the poet wrote this poem using free verse, which is consider to be one of the main characteristic of modernism. I also like how E.E.Cummings uses irony in his poem, for example, when he said “Humanity I love you” and he repeats this sentence many times as a way to emphasis the opposite meaning of it, and he revels the real meaning in the last line of this poem, when he said “Humanity I hate you”. I found this poem a very emotional one.
‘I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud’ and ‘The Preservation of Flowers’: two notable poems, two very different styles of writing. This essay will look at their contrasts and similarities, from relevant formal aspects, to the deeper meanings hidden between the lines. We will examine both writers use of rhyme scheme, sound patterning, word choice, figurative language and punctuation. It will also touch a little on the backgrounds of the writers themselves and their inspirations, with the intention of gaining a greater understanding of both texts. The structure and form of both poems is evidently dissimilar.
Two Scavengers in a Truck,Two Beautiful People in Mercedes and Nothings Changed Compare and contrast of two poems from different cultures- ‘Two Scavengers in a Truck, Two beautiful People in Mercedes’ and ‘Nothings Changed’. ‘Two Scavengers in a Truck, Two Beautiful People in Mercedes’ by Lawrence Ferlinghetti, is a poem about four very different people brought together by traffic lights turning red. The poet is protesting against the inequalities within a democracy. ‘Nothings Changed’ by Tatamkhulu Afrika, is a poem which is also protesting, but about the way black people are treated in a place where the poet used to live, in District Six, in South Africa, where apartheid took place. In the poem ‘Two Scavengers in a Truck, Two Beautiful People in Mercedes’, the poet compares four people.
The lengths of the stanzas alone are of great help i... ... middle of paper ... ... varies more. This also contributes to the overall tone of the poem. When reading I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud, the readers can easily grasp a sense of happiness, because the sentences, which are neatly written, are more music like and are pleasant to read. However, when reading The Solitary Reaper, with the varying of the lengths of the lines, the readers? feeling cannot help being ?varied?
Emily Dickinson’s Hope the thing with feathers is a poem about the merits of hope and its absence in a significant amount of people. This poem is written in an iambic trimeter with three quatrains. When one reads this poem, it has a sense of rhyme and rhythm. Each line consequently goes with the next, and it continues like that smoothly. When writing poetry, the use of grammar is not needed.
The numerous internal rhymes, and the alliteration however, creates a smooth and leisurely pace. The rhythm of the poem is euphonically methodical, with all the stanzas except the fourth having iambic tetrameter in lines 1 and 3, and iambic trimeter in lines 2 and 4 of each stanza. The rhythm reinforces the almost cheerful atmosphere of the poem. The first stanza begins in an almost self-reproachful way: "Because I could not..." They short, hard sounds "could not stop for" supports this regretful feeling and emphasizes how "kindly" Death is to stop for her. "The Carriage held just but Ourselves" conveys an intimate feeling, perhaps showing what a personal death is.
In general, for my leisure, I would read Li Po due to the directness and the delight his poetry brings. Yet, Tu Fu's poetry gives me something to contemplate and requires a lot of thought. I find his poetry much more intriguing and worthwhile to read. For me, both poets can be enjoyed, pending on the mood of the reader and the desire to think!
Skillfully constructed structures and expressive imagery, and vivid symbolism lend a beneficial hand in helping these authors convey meaning. Ultimately, though both poems have differing perspectives of nostalgia, their poems express true nostalgia nonetheless. Works Cited Frost, Robert. “Birches”. The Norton Anthology of American Literature.
Even though they have similarities in style they are almost polar opposites in terms of meaning as Pound’s talked about art and LaRocque’s talked about politics. The two poems are extremely good examples of imagist poems, that used imagery and economy of verse. Works Cited Ezra, Pound. "In a Station of the Metro." The Harbrace Anthology of Poetry.
Authors, William Wordsworth and William Blake convey different messages and themes in their poems, “The World is Too Much with Us” and “The Tyger” consecutively by using the different mechanics one needs to create poetry. Both poems are closely related since they portray different aspects of society but the message remains different. Wordsworth’s poem describes a conflict between nature and humanity, while Blake’s poem issues God’s creations of completely different creatures. In “The World is Too Much with Us,” we figure the theme to be exactly what the title suggests: Humans are so self-absorbed with other things such as materialism that there’s no time left for anything else. In “The Tyger” the theme revolves around the question of what the Creator (God) of this creature seems to be like and the nature of good vs. evil.
