There are many cases in which you see people finding beauty in things they don't even understand, such as an Italian Opera or Ancient Hieroglyphics painted on a pyramid wall. Poetry can be silly, cheesy, boring or down right appealing and consuming to the readers eyes. The poem I read was "From the Hazel Bough" by Earle Birney. This poem paints a great picture of a specific situation and also represents an aspect of life that I am sure we all have experienced in one way or another. In order to get the full affect of this poem, you have to clear your mind and envision the close details that Birney is using in the descriptions of the characters.
Ekphrasis poetry can be written as either an exhibition of the sensational aspects of an artist’s life or as a act to explicate the artwork itself. Gehrke balances both options by opening the gaze of the audience to witness the life of the artist but also the process, aftermath, and desire to paint. Gehrke respects the creative process of the painters, but also gives voice to the torments of the artists, their subjects, themes of death, life and love. The book as an entire collection gages the immediacy of art and time, because life is but a fleeting glimpse of fractured memories and light. Moreover, the images presented in Gehrke’s collection are intertwined capturing the urgency to paint, the transcendence of the artist from their body, as painting is an out of body experience, but also maintains the humanity of the artist’s by examining the fascination of the human body, medical crises and emotional turmoil.
In dance, there was ballet, that was a traditional and classical in movement. Theatre is expressed in tragedy where it has no overall positive ending to the play, but it is a lesson to be learned about the faults of humans. Art song, a musical form has given us a way to view poetry in a different light, by the musical background that is added. Finally. Oil paintings give us broader possibilities of colors and its textural manipulation.
When it comes to dramatic monologue, the concrete information is the initial portrait that the poem paints of the speaker by taking the reader into their world. The initial portrait we get of the speaker is that of an irrational and jealous man, as much of the poem discuses the Duchess’ flirtation with other men. For example “she had... ... middle of paper ... ...re is a lot they do not know about other characters, and therefore a lot of possibilities beyond one character’s monologue. This is not to say that the reader writes the narrative themselves or can simply make up their own story. It simply means that the dramatic monologue –a form known for being limited to one character- actually has much greater possibility and a much great ability to tell a larger story.
Humor and Irony are a unique combinations Collins displays in many of his poems, challenging the readers to interpret his work in different perspectives. In “Introduction to Poetry,” Collins offers a witty comparison between the definition of poetry and various other experiments. He asks the reader to “hold [the poem] up to the light/ like a color slide” (1-3), “press an ear against its hive” (4), “drop a mouse into a poem” (5), “walk inside the poem's room” (7), and “waterski across the surface of a poem” (9-10). Rather than stiffly explaining the definition of a poem, he finds creative and humorous approaches to explain his methods of enjoying the poems, and promote the readers’ interest towards discovering the true meaning of poetry. Just as the surrounding would seem different through color slides, he asks the readers to see the world in diverse viewpoints while reading and writing poems.
Written in romantic era of literature, in 1804 Each poet creates a different mood in their poems. Hughes’ use of imagery creates a bad and nasty mood. It even creates horrible and mean moods, and sometimes a scary mood. The use of imagery has a reason to it as well; the purpose of it is to make people get a vision, a small scene, and a picture in their minds of what thistles look like, and what they do to be so painful. Hughes’ way of using imagery is good as it explains whatever he sees; it shows that he can use other things or words to explain his views.
Despite one’s background they can imagine what that would feel like. To ensure all his readers had similar experiences with this poem, Eliot doesn’t use simple terms. Eliot captures J. Alfred Prufrock in such despair and internal struggle so well. Eliot takes us through what the surrounding is like, what is going through Prufrock’s head, and what ultimately ends up happening. Eliot describes the moment so well that it feels as though the reader is there at the party, maybe even as
Simon Armitage and Duffy both bring their characters to life in ‘Hitcher ‘and’ Education for Leisure’ by using many poetic devices and language techniques; these portray the characters in many different ways. Armitage uses a strange and unusual structure which makes the poem itself more tense and chilling than if it had a regular structure because it matches with the poem, this adds emphasis to the unusual topic of murder. The poem is split into five stanzas each which adds to the final part of the story. The poem is in the first person in which give us the narrator’s point of view. The long and short sentences in the poem builds up tension by making the reader not know were they are in the poem.
It is the second reading we will be exploring in this revision programme. Either way, the attitude to water in the poem should make us in the West wonder at how much we all take for granted, and how too often we squander the earth’s resources. Dharker paints for the reader a vivid scene using visual and aural imagery. For instance, after opening with a powerful visual image, the poet goes on to make us hear the smallest noise ‘echo/ in a tin mug’, before upping the sound level with the ‘roar of tongues’ as people descend on the pipe. The title of the poem appears to be ironic.
Comparing How do I Love Thee by Elizabeth Barrett Browning and A Brithday by Christina Rosetti Much of the poetry written prior to the 19th Century was devoted to the 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. For these reasons, it is important top analyse examples of this poetry in terms of how the different poets have captured the sensations of being in different types of love. Also, how the poets have conveyed to the reader the different types of love one can experience. Finally, how the poets convey to the reader a sense of how being in love has changed them, for the better, or for worse. The two poems I have chosen to compare for this essay are 'How do I love thee?'
