Furthermore, He was inspired by Dorothy and Coleridge and other poets as well. William Wordsworth had written mostly for his poetic beliefs and political situation. I notice that he was a key to the Romanticism. You can also see William Wordsworth wanted to create poetry that had reunited the readers with their true feelings and emotions. People generally see the poems with rhyming and flow at first, in this case “I Wandered as a Lonely Cloud” by William Wordsworth has a rhyme to it which is (ABABCC).
One poem that caught my attention was that of Scorn not the sonnet. The poem is rather interesting and brings up other poets before his time. It also talks about the form and the meaning of a sonnet. He talks of the sonnet as a delicate work of art. Wordsworth describes each part of the sonnet by talking of another poet.
I noticed that the structure of the poem started off as “you-and-I” and then quickly shifted to “I”, in regards to Prufrock, and finally back to “we” (Pagnattaro). However, when I first came across to read this poem, these shifts confused me immensely. I started to think that Prufrock was selfish rather than thinking he was actually dehumanizing himself because he felt sorry for himself. After reading Pagnattaro’s critical essay on why he felt the way he did, I was able to better understand the shifts. I believe that T. S. Eliot did a great job with these shifts, adding emphasis to Prufrock’s unfortunate
In my opinion, to me a great poet is someone who writes a poem which affects many generations of readers, makes you think about what they have written, allows you to be able to visualise the words you’re reading and is able to make you get lost in the words. When I think of a ‘great’ poet, the first person who pops into my mind is Emily Dickinson. Over her life as a poet, Dickinson developed through phases, writing about different things as she passed through each one. She also used unique mechanisms in her writing such as dashes and capital letters. Dickinson was also renowned for her ideas and the concept of belonging, with her work being based on themes such as immortality, alienation and communication as significant events in her life affected the way she wrote and viewed the world.
Rather than describe how the poets' loves have changes, both the poets quantify their love and show this sensation through descriptive writing and similes. As it can be seen from this analysis, much of the poetry written prior to the 19th Century was devoted to many types of love, both the sensations and feelings related to this subject, and also the poet attempting to capture in writing how the feeling of being in love has changed him or her both for better and for worse. In the case of the poets discussed here, it is obvious that for those poets, love was experienced as both a burden and an inspiration, as something to long for, and as something to resist. Regardless it is obvious that for these poets, love did serve to change them forever.
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.
Using a sonnet form brings much meaning and expectation to the words in a poem. With “Sonnet 65,” the structure shows progression of the emotions and ideas about beauty versus time through the quatrains and closes with a couplet announcing the dilemma to the problem. Many sonnets also contain a metapoetic level because the authors know the power of language and they choose to write about that power of writing. “Sonnet 65” is a perfect example of words that adhere to conventional sonnet form to produce meanings on multiple levels in poetry.
Seamus Heaney, the poet with extravagant creativity and strong emotional authority over his poems has designed two effective long poems, 'Digging' and 'Punishment'. While both the poems deal with fairly different issues, they do have some strong mutual connections which make engross readers into the dealings described in the poems. Both topics deal with great emotional holds and a bit of melancholy, 'Punishment' more so than 'Digging'. In the poems, the poet recollects past events and relates them greatly to the present activities. These are to be broadly discussed in the later parts of this piece, how the past has been adhered to the present and how this is affecting recent events.
“William Blake’s The Mental Traveller” William Blake is a literature genius. Most of his work speaks volume to the readers. Blake’s poem “The Mental Traveller” features a conflict between a male and female that all readers can relate to because of the lessons learned as you read. The poet William Blake isn’t just known for just writing. He was also a well-known painter and a printmaker.
Poetry, like any other piece of literature, is written to express certain emotion,feeling or idea as desired by the author. Without a defined format, poems come in all sorts of variations, each with it’s own sound,smell, and taste. The most successful poems masterfully give readers the Ah Ha! experience and invoke in them incomprehensible emotions that render them vulnerable to the poets message. William Shakespeare’ s Sonnet 18 and Sylvia Plath’s Metaphors adequately contain imagery,lineation,and tone to shape the meaning and allow the rest to the readers perception.However, no matter how elegant the poem may be structured the poem is nothing without the readers interpretation.
