He is a "peoples poet" his poems' characters often provide "physiological portraits" of fictional and historical characters suffering an isolation of some sort (990). Robinson is considered a transitional figure; he is the precursor of Modernist poetry. He uses the older traditional influences of form and rhyme and his poems are often simple and neat. However, in juxtaposition of these old and highly stylistic forms, he uses personal subject matter in the make-up of his characters. The use of these very personal experiences is what contributes to the intrigue that most readers feel when reading his poems.
Learning more on the history and what the poets gone through. The poems having deep meanings rather than a lightly meaning. The poets believing in their beliefs and not considering what others thought of their writing but creating it more valuable so that the critics ended up liking it more than they did before. William Wordsworth poetry is incredible and the other poets that I was also fond of. William Blake and the other poets seen issue that was happening during their time and used how they felt and visualize it through their poems and wanted other to feel the same way.
Modern poetry is also known for its dependence of concrete imagery and rejection of traditional poetic structure. It also could focus is on a society falling apart due ... ... middle of paper ... ...em today. Each of these poets had different spiritual beliefs, but they all believed and had a passion for writing and expressing the time period in which they lived through their poetry. I agree with the works of these artists because they make you think of a bigger picture and not just on what you see or what you are around. I also enjoy learning about modern poetry now because of the meaning and the messaged behind it.
Many people while reading poems take the blunt force of what is being said word by word, but that is where people go wrong. Poetry is deep and meaningful pieces of literature making understanding poems very challenging for some people. The most misunderstood poem ever written would have to be Robert Frost’s poem “The Road Not Taken” mainly because people seem to be individualized and not read into the irony Robert Frost is telling. Being able to go deeper into your own thoughts and thinking outside of the box to find the true meaning of what is being said is how you figure out what the authors are trying to say. What seems like a straight forward poem that we constantly hear people saying “take the road less traveled” really takes on a whole
Dalloway and Preface to Lyrical Ballads and Wordworth’s and Woolf’s texts are similar in Essay on Criticism and Tragedy and the Emotions of Pity and Fear, also how modern poetry would relate to Wordsworth’s poetry, and how Woolf’s poetry can only be written dramatically. Woolf and Wordsworth wrote their life experiences. They wanted to make their writings very personable to the reader, so that one could read their piece and find a way to relate their life to the text. Also, if Wordsworth’s followers were to write poetry it would compare with music. Music is poetry with a beat and tune.
He was also known as a critic, because in his poems he criticized the elements of life, anything from aging to death, dissecting each element through description and subliminally informing the reader of his view on the matter. He used descriptive diction to paint a vivid image for his audience to not only contemplate his message, but to also visual it. This technique made him a literary artist, one who creates visual masterpieces through proper word choice. He also magnified his literary artwork by utilizing strong connotations in his poetry to infer meanings while preventing the poem from becoming prose. Due to the fact that his ideas in his writing related more to today’s time than his own, Arnold's conceptual style was said to be modern.
When reading the poem, It is easy to infer that he is upset over the issue. He states that poetry is for the intellectuals and those who use their brains, rather than those who just want to have fun and drink. He writes in “sad poetry,” in order to build up the tolerance for outrageous misfortune. He does not write to make peopl... ... middle of paper ... ... the poetry community (which liked to write about the valor and glory of war), wrote about the reality of war because they have all experienced it. Hardy also focused on the idea of war, but not as much as the others.
To me poetry is language written in an artistic way to show feeling to the reader. Readers read poetry to read a poem that brings delight to them or entertain them. Poetry can be different to everybody because there are different types of poetry. Poetry is written to please the mind and to bring a happy feeling into their body. In a poem the words should be as pleasing to the ear as the meaning is to the mind.
Even to the most trained eye, Ashbery's use of conversation pieces set his writings apart. Daniel Kane, who interviewed Ashbery, focuses on the writing technique of Ashbery's poems and how it directly relates to diverse ideas. In order to gain clarity, Kane delved deep into the meanings of lines within Ashbery's writing. "I frequently incorporate overheard speech", said Ashbery in the interview, "much of which obviously doesn't make very much sense when overheard…[it] obviously makes a lot of sense to the people who are talking…[it has a] special meaning for them" (Kane 2). Ashbery recognizes that his poetry is what sets his apart.
Thomas Hardy focuses on making this poem fluent and meaningful rather than the plain and ordinary. Thomas Hardy has specific standards which include a negative perspective on marriage and a lonely demeanor. In both Your Last Drive and The Workbox Thomas Hardy was very punctilious when placing each caesura and end stop. In both poems he used the word borough and rhyme to connect each line and produce an everlasting impact on the reader. Whether Thomas Hardy’s purpose for writing poems was an emotional release or to stimulate emotions in the reader, he disregarded any successful marriages and gave purpose to his writings because he went persevered through the relationship
