After reading this poem, one could truly feel the pain he is trying to overcome. This poem uses different key elements to help the reader feel the emotions of words. Being able to connect words with feelings is an amazing skill that Neruda has beyond doubt mastered.
The central theme of his poetry is his own intense personal dispositions, as a lover, a friend, a psychoanalyst of his own experiences, worldly and religious. Classical poetry cannot unify these experiences; it is John Donne’s use of the metaphysical that allows him to present his poetry as a whole experience, and to show feelings as they are. This technique proves him not only successful in teaching and delighting audience, but achieving both so effectively that they have the ability to affect readers deeply.
This poem manages to reach out on a personal level even though the method is transparent which validates the authenticity of Hardy’s poetic skill. He builds an image through the use of simple poetic devices to lull the reader into an easy read and proceeds to squeeze the reader’s sore spots to capture their attention. Hardy’s poem reads in the same manner it must have been written, in self loathing. Hardy was a tragic figure living within a tragic poem, this work accurately portrays Hardy in his futile attempt to understand and deal with the unavoidable trials of his life. He uses this struggle as a common thread to effectively tie his audience together, capturing the readers as they marinade in one of the defining qualities of life: regret.
Her/his way of expressing ideas and emotions summarises the poets craftsmanship and creativity. What the poet does is that he/she illustrates and exemplifies how language can be used to achieve the most effective way of expression. Poems deal with universal themes such as love and hate, birth and death, innocence and guilt, heaven and hell, which are familiar to all readers. For this reason, believing in the importance of literature and the contribution of poetry to language teaching and learning, we have decided to use poetry to act as a means to enrich the language awareness of ELT majors. 1.1 Background of the problem Until the late 60’s and early 70’s the teaching of literature in foreign and second language classes was an activity whose justification was assumed to be obvious.
It is all ones experiences, memories and inner thoughts that make us individuals and interesting to one another and by writing them down for others to experience, is poetry. Lees' poetry takes on its own unique style as most poetry does for each individual poet. This overall style is the due to the combination of subject, tone and texture in Lees' poetry. The subject in lees' poetry is based on his relationships with the people in his life, mainly his father. In many of his poems, Lees' demanding yet tender father is either the subject or in some way an influence seen in the poem.
Poets shared their experience of the lives in poetic verses. For this reason, history is full of the stories with passionate and deep love. The same idea was also the central point of one of the most famous poet of the history named Galib. He was a famous poet of the seventeenth century, and has several touching poetries in Urdu and Persian language on his credit. In his poetry, deep love seemed to be the main idea, but the true essence was the deep sorrow and a sad impression which made his poetry stands out among others.
He was very famous for his poetry because it contained visions of life, aspects of birth and death, fear, grief, joy, and beauty. At a younger age, Thomas was a very violent poet. As he grew older, he spoke for all men greatly when he wrote. He wrote his poems referring to the qualities and sensations of life. The strength of feelings, which were expressed in his writings, gave many different impressions about Thomas’ attitudes toward religion and spirituality, relationships, and the passion in his poetry.
These two poems are linked together by the idea of suffering created by love, this love is ironic because both poets are causing themselves to suffer more by pushing themselves to the edge. In conclusion, each of the poets expresses his or her opinion on love and suffering. Whether it is mentally or physically, the poet fully illustrated the warmth of love, and the pain of suffering when love is absent or lost.
The perfect use of language is combined with thoughtfulness and philosophy that matches that of the author. He has said that it is better to have loved and lost than not to have loved at all. The same thing happens in the poem, the speaker is full of grief but he knows that these memories that make him sad are also sweet because there was joy before death came. All these things make the poem one of the best representatives of the Victorian Age and of Tennyson himself. This work best presents the feelings that people have when they have lost a friend and this is the main reason why I chose it.
The Theme of Love and Loss in Poetry Have you ever looked up the word poetry in a dictionary? Poetry is defined as literature in its most intense, most imaginative and most rhythmic forms. For the poet, it can be a way to relieve their stress and just 'let go' and for the reader it can be an adventure into the state of mind of the poet. The Romantic Era, during the late 18th and early 19th century, was a period of time in which poets started to express their love and lust for others through poetic forms. This essay will be exploring the way in which poets use language, imagery and form to express their ideas to the reader.
