After reading Wilbur’s poem multiple times the reader can notice a theme with ... ... middle of paper ... ...ewhat reserved like the narrator in “The Writer”, usually watching me and my sister and rarely speaking his feelings unprovoked. “The Writer” and “High School Senior” by Richard Wilbur and Sharon Olds, respectively, are two poems that speak about a parents child growing up and finding themselves. The storyteller in “The Writer” watches his daughter explore the liberties associated with maturing as she writes a story. The narrator in “High School Senior” describes her thoughts as her daughter prepares to depart for college, and describes the immense love and connection she has with her daughter. Both authors attempt a similar theme and show affection for their daughters, as well as their views of life and growing up, using like and unique literary devices and techniques from the other two create two poems with many similarities written in different ways.
The piano teacher commented to my mother, that I must have heard the song or got it from my memory, and then wrote it down. When the same thing happened with my English teacher, I knew I had written something so good that she could not believe I had written it myself. I wrote another poem for the English teacher. I followed the poem writing formula. Then, she accepted the poem.
The author uses voices in the essay while remembering what her mom and dad were saying to her about memories of each other. So in other words, the author remembers what her parents said to her about each other and includes their voices in the essay. She also includes what she remembers exactly from her parents. "If it wasn't for you two, my mother told us, I could be off somewhere else". The quote obviously shows that this is what she remembers her mom saying.
She often created her own stories in her mind but never wanted to write them down (“Christie, Agatha” 176; “Agatha Christie Biography”). Christie’s father died when she was young. She was raised by her mom. She grew up in family full of stories- from dramatic, suspenseful tales her mother told her at bedtime, to her elder sister’s frightening creations. Agatha Christie was encouraged by her mother to write poetry and stories from a very early age.
I have read poem twenty-six several times and have read it aloud to myself in the mirror. Charlotte Pence pens a concrete image of life with her father, intertwining in specific diction an event that has impacted her adulthood. This prose technique allows me to understand that the remembrance of one specific event in a relationship can affirm the infinite effect a relationship between a father and daughter has on the future. The lesson I learned from her work is that a good poet must avoid corny language in the process of writing a poem. I took this lesson to heart when I revised my poem “Stolen Trust” and my attempt to remember how one specific life event impacts how I view the world.
from California State University in 1979. She lists her political affiliation as Democratic and her religion as "recovering from Catholicism." Marjorie Rosen writes of her: "Growing up the only daughter of Robert George, an estimator for a conveyor company, and his wife, Anne, a nurse, George was influenced early by her parents' enthusiasm for literature. 'When my older brother, Rob, was 6, he was struck in the eye by an arrow and had his eyes bandaged. My parents spent hours reading to him, and I listened,' she Ms. George and Titch--photo credit Patty Smiley says.
When her sons where asleep, she started writing. She dusted off the story in which she had written for discussion in her writers group and decided to make it into a novel.

In “Passed On” by Carole Satymurti, the central purpose of this poem is to tell a narrative, as it show's the narrator's reflection of coping with her mother's death, even though the narrator is strongly suggested as a woman. The second stanza in the beginning of line 8, “Only, after opening it, I saw/ how she'd rendered herself down in flesh/to paper...”, suggests that she is reviewing memorabilia that represented her mother from the past, and in line 15: “I'd shuffle them/to almost hear her speak” reminds her of the memories and helps her to relive her experiences with her mother. Overall, the poem reveals her emotions and experiences after her mother's death. This purpose is achieved through the utilization of visual imagery, use of diction, and transitional structure, and by showing a sense/tone of dependency in the second and third stanzas. However in the fourth stanza, a shift of tone suggests that the narrator is ready to live on her own and think independent thoughts.
It is strange that such a revelation happened so late in life, considering the poet Vachel Lindsay was a houseguest of her parents not to mention the academically freeing ambiance. But Kizer herself references this change of direction to repressed “psychic energy” (O’Conner) after her divorce from her first husband and the tutelage of her mentor and teacher Theodore Roethke. Through this awakening and beyond, Kizer has left a trail of politically, socially and culturally relevant poetry that has won her many awards and accolades, including the Pulitzer Prize in 1985 for her collection Yin. One of her most well-known works, entitled “Bitch”, was published in 1984 in the collection of poems Mermaids in the Basement. The poem written in a single stanza of 34 lines depicts the scene of a woman meeting an ex-lover in a random encounter.
