Then I realized I could do both, but more in poetry form. A song is a poem, but it has a variety of materials a poem does not have such as, instruments, melody, and harmony. A song and a poem have differences, but they also have similarities, like style and rhythm. I joined the forms because they are a similar genre of literature; it helped me build a successful piece. The process of my final product was easier to write a poem, than writing a song and adding instruments, coming up with a hook, and figuring out the key or pitch.
To her poetry must be something that can be somewhat easily understood because people do not admire what they cannot understand. People must be true poets to write genuine poetry. These poems have many points where they are alike and they also have many points where they are different. Ars Poetica by Archibald MacLeish and Poetry by Marianna Moore are similar because they are poems that describe how poetry should be written, they are different because of their form and they do not convey the same ideas. Poetry is something ... ... middle of paper ... ...shall, Megan.
This is a little ironic, because in real life people always find it harder to tell others what they think. I believe that writing down your deepest emotions and having someone read it is much easier than telling them in person. In the end I think that my feelings towards poetry are much different now. I still feel the same way about some parts of poetry, but not all. I now have greater appreciation for poetry and poets.
Modern poetry is significant to everyday life because it dares us to break free from the safe strategies of a discreet mind, enabling us to honor the unknown, both in us and in the world. In poetry, a small amount of words may contain a lot of intensity. Compression allows fewer words to have more power. Poems in its entirety can be just as plenary as stories, because the crucial aspects of the experience are still there. Several simple lines can draw in year’s worth of emotions and sensitivity.
People listen to different type of music, prefer different type of movies and believe it or not people are very selective about where they get lunch from, so why wouldn’t they be selective about what they read? When I was going through the anthology I fell in love with the poem “The Tale of Custard the Dragon” and thought it was a great because I love fairytale stories and poem, but if someone dislikes fairytale like things would despise this poem base on its content and its rhythm. Whether a poem is good or bad depends on the opinion of the reader and his or her point of view on the topic, rhythm, rhyme and flow of the poem. In “The Making of a Poem, A Norton Anthology of Poetic Forms”, I found many pleasing and displeasing poems in my search for a bad poem. The poem that stood out as the most displeasing poem in my opinion was “My Last Duchess” by Ferrara.
In essence, excellent poetry is able to instill a state of emotion within its reader through compressed language. Unlike prose, poetry does not focus on developing a plot or character, but rather developing the feelings and mood received or creating a theme. Often, both can be done, in truly masterful poetry. Likewise, excellent poetry must achieve such in a comparatively brief manner, when compared to prose. Often, writing what is absolutely necessary is more impactful than deliberating extensively on a single idea.
What really is the road less traveled? Either way, that path or the other path would have been the chosen. It was a choice that needed to be made regard... ... middle of paper ... ...ot Taken” as title is fitting to the irony in which the poem embodies. It is easy to misinterept poetry, which is why it is important to reread the piece a few times as well as analyze it further. For example, the reader may miss all that Frost was trying to convey if the piece is hastily read through.
However, if an author is trying to create a light mood or tense mood, the excessive amount of words used to describe even the face of the protagonist or antagonist takes away from whatever mood the author is trying to create. If an reader has to lug himself through tons of description words to finally get to what is actually going on, the work ju... ... middle of paper ... ... clunky descriptions, yet it is listed as an imagery poem, so it is assumed that it is a very descriptive poem. The words are well chosen and line breaks are helpful (something novelists don’t really directly get), but the poem itself is beautiful both visually and audibly. Speaking for myself, I find that drawn-out descriptions are often times boring and make me liable to skim. Rarely do I really find a description I just find perfect, but I feel that J.K Rowling often does a good job at detailing her stories.
Reading is part of everyday life, but understanding what you have read is something less common. There are a lot of different types of literate that you can read. One of the most popular types of reading that people do would be to read poetry, but almost everyone that reads poetry reads the most common type; the ones that rhyme and are easy to read. These are very good poems, but when you begin to read different types of poetry you start to figure out that a lot of it seems to be nonsense and this is not the case. “Poetry might be defined as the clear expression of mixed feelings.” (Auden) This is a very good point because poetry is something that seems to be very clear, until you get to feelings and everyone has different feelings.
What is the point of life? Most would say it’s to survive; others say its finally finding “the one.” Others think more about not what is at the end of life, or the things you have accomplished. Moreover, it is the dreams that never happened that impact more people. Usually, it is the less-fortunate times that are easier to bring back to memory than the more benevolent ones. This is also shown in poetry because the author can more likely bring out feelings of hatred, regret, and sorrow.
