Possession entails the poet composes their poems by losing all senses, yet poetry is a combination of senses, for the poet, in short, experiences the basics of life differently than someone who is not a poet. A passionate poet, instead of a possessed poet, doesn’t lose his or her senses but rather uses them to create poetry. Conversely, passion, or even being in the state of what Plato would consider to be irrational, is what consequently makes humankind fully human. The ontology of humans come from many different avenues of influence, but their state of being comes from the quest of insight. The act of coming to truth must be done from the basis of a humans own life.
T.S. Eliot once said 'a large part of ay poet's "inspiration" must come from his reading and from his knowledge of history. ' As he is writing the poem, his voice is sounded in the voice of the poem. The voice projected through a poem is a solid message projected by poetic techniques, but the voice that is heard inside the readers head varies from reader to reader, depending on their background. There are some core things that alter the voice that Eliot's poetry projects: the nationality of the reader and whether or not they are familiar with the society Eliot is writing about, what religion, if any, they belong to, and how well read a reader is (Eliot makes many allusions in his poetry) will effect the voice that they hear from Eliot's work.
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.
Why poetry is so important Poetry depends on the writers’ awareness, experiences, and observations, so everyone has the credentials needed to create poems. Poems express the senses it provides extended connections to the mind and feelings. At first, poetry might be specified as a language tha... ... middle of paper ... ...ealing manner. Some people just can’t see language as a work of art and graceful in itself. But all of these things are what makes poetry pleasurable for me.
I usually read to gather information and poetry is on the other end of the spectrum. Fredrick Gruber sums this up, “Poetry tends to give general truths while history gives particular facts.” (Gruber) Having said all of this though, I did see a couple of things that I could apply to my own writing. I will first start off with some elements of poetry that I don’t see myself applying. First I will talk about rhyming. This is one of the first things people think about when they think about poetry.
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).
It is trying to incorporate, to realize. Not ideas about the thing, writes Wallace Stevens, but the thing itself. As Denise Levertov has said, "The substance, the means, of an art, is am incarnation--not reference but phenomenon." This is of course what gives to poetry, to good poetry, a feeling of aliveness. Touch its body--the body of this particular "thinking" --and you will feel it pulse with hidden life.
However, he actually uses the word ‘Canonization’ to talk about love tribulations. John Donne’s poem, ‘Canonization’, is a unique creation which was not unusual for poetry written by poets of his day. Canonization, can be said to have a lot of hidden meaning that can be compared to the poet’s own life experiences and it is also contradictory to what the word ‘Canonization’ really means. Donne makes the readers change their opinion on what they already know about love and believe his concepts on love. Donne as poet, uses his experience to write poems such as the “Canonization” to show how he was able to adapt from Catholicism to Anglicanism and often reflects in poetry themes such as love and religion and approaches them in a transcendent manner.
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. Poetry is brought to life by the authors ability to use words in combinations that allow readers to create their own story. A poem is a moment captured by the poet and written tactfully without any limitations. Nevertheless, the poet writes the poem with the clear conviction of pulling the reader into its grip and taking them through a journey of inexplicable experiences. The vitality of the poem comes from the reader, if a poem is able to surprise and jolt those who read it then it has successfully come to life; something about that poem was able clasp the complex mind of a reader.
Robert Frost once said “A poem begins as a lump in the throat, a sense of wrong, a homesickness, a lovesickness.” “It’s when an emotion has found its thought and the thought finds words. Poetry is a vital language of the heart. Poems rely on the writer’s deep and intensive feelings toward a subject. Poems can help a person find their inner feelings that one could not express directly to someone, but only could explain with pen and paper. Poetry draws on the senses and the senses give deep access to the poet’s inside feelings.
