As the author distinguishes the similarities between the scarlet ibis and the broken vase, it highlights how the ibis is fragile, in its broken state, but it is still beautiful. However, the bird was still driven to a tragic death that it did not deserve, thus making readers feel pity and embedding a melancholic mood in the section. Therefore, as the author uses symbolism and similes, he establishes a melancholic mood during the death of the ibis in the
He may not have loved her, but once she was gone he realized how much he missed her. The poem Your Last Drive is a very palpable poem. Hardy wrote this poem with the intention of sorting out his emotions. On the other hand, the poem The Workbox has a deeper meaning and possesses many qualities of a Hardy poem. Thomas Hardy focuses on making this poem fluent and meaningful rather than the plain and ordinary.
This development of love was not easy for Yeats and neither is the loose of love. He is writing a poem here to express the difficulty he is having losing his first love, Maud. He expresses this in a poem and compares poetry to falling in love. This is a curse from God to all men. He wants it to be told that to write poetry is just as difficult as his attempt to court Maud.
The speaker of the poem is standing by a pond in the dead of winter staring into the bleakness that has become his relationship. The poet uses imagery and symbolism to convey the precise state of the relationship. By setting the poem in the winter, Hardy is able to convey a feeling of vacancy, which not only describes the landscape, but the feelings within the hearts of the speaker and the woman in the poem; they are both vacant of feeling for each other. Hardy uses the lack of color to his advantage. He only speaks of white and gray, even calling attention to the color of the sun, saying, “And the sun was white” (Hardy, Neutral Tones).
Poetry Comparison on Wordsworth's Lucy and Tennyson's Dark house, by which once more I stand Wordsworth's and Tennyson's poems are both about someone who was close to them and is now gone. However Tennyson uses the physical surroundings to portray his emotions as well as his own reactions whereas Wordsworth's poem is less specific and less obvious about his feelings, focusing his attention on the lost person. Tennyson's poem is more about himself, "I stand, my heart, Behold me, for I cannot sleep, I creep". Because he describes his own actions, the poem is very self absorbed and the reader doesn't get to know about the person that is now gone. On the other hand, Wordsworth does focus his attention on the lost person and in fact the whole poem is about her: only at the end does he refer back to himself, "The difference to me!"
(Complete 7) This shows how he sets up the setting for the story. This sentence makes you think of a dark lonely night. This is a good example of how Poe?s literary style is dark. Poe also wrote ?Ah, distinctly I remember it was in the bleak December, and each separate dying ember wrought its ghost upon the floor. Eagerly I wished the morrow;---vainly I had sought to borrow from books surcease of sorrow---sorrow for the lost Lenore---for the rare and radiant maiden whom the angels name Lenore---nameless here for evermore?
The rhyme scheme Elliot uses in this poem depicts the disenchanted and confused mind of the narrator. The poem is written using a non-uniform meter and rhyme. Various stanzas are not of uniform length. This method is probably used to represent the mood and feelings in the verse. Prufrock is feeling confused and overwhelmed by the adversities of life so his thought probably has the same types of characteristics.
This sorting of emotions leads the speaker to question the many possibilities and consequences concerned with love. Such concerns are brilliantly intertwined with Wyatt's poem as he includes rhyme scheme, structure, and imagery to express his feelings of love. Most often love poems are written in the form of a sonnet, but such is not the case in "It Is Possible", which is an ode. When poets have chosen to work within such a strict form it usually encircles their intentional message. In other words, the poet is using the structure of the poem as a means of communication so that the reader might find the "meaning" not only in the words, but partly in their pattern as well.
These Lesbia poems not only show the range of his feelings, but also his own range in style, from heightened, elaborate language, to simple expressions of complex feeling, although the latter probably shows his sincerity more effectively, for example poem 85 in which Catullus manages to demonstrate how torn he is in only two lines. Throughout the selection of the poems, Catullus conveys to the reader that he feels both wonderful and torturous elements of love.
