She has also added an ironic turn to the phrase “I, too, dislike it” (Line 1) because of her dislike of poetry has not stopped her from continuing to complain about such a system in the form of something does not like. The speaker is very forward and harsh in s... ... middle of paper ... ...no one is willing to break the mold per se. (Line 8) Everyone would rather stay with their own ideas of safety and uniformity. This “place for the genuine” Moore refers to in both versions of her poem is considered the setting of her poem. It is only here that people who have succeed in telling the truth, and staying true to the craft of writing poetry can exist.
Without her use of sarcasm this poem would have been good but not great. Her sarcastic wording brought great attention to her poem, and allowed her to convey her message that love and hate are such passionate emotions that are so closely connected and can be intertwined into one another. The use of figurative language is one of the strongest assets of the poems tone. Without the passionate emotion portrayed she would have lost some of the tone and the tone is what enables the speaker to affectively get her meaning of the poem across. “Poet Billy Collins has said of her work, “Julie Sheehan possesses a range of tones- tender, sassy, quietly observant, deeply cutting” (www.poetryfoundation.com).
(Line 21) From this sentence we can find out that the persona is an abnormal person, because a normal person would not eat him/herself even though if they were bored. The interesting bit of the structure is that it is unique. Since that some of the poems always have the same structure which seem to be normal and dull, therefore if the poem structured in a different way will make the reader feel it's an extraordinary poem. In contrast, in "Hitcher", "My Last Duchess" and "The Laboratory" although, the languages that the poets have used are not violent, but what the character does in the poem makes the poem seem to be violent. For example: - In "Hitcher", the murder killed a person in the poem, "once with the head, then six times with the krooklok in the face".
Music is poetry with a beat and tune. Then lastly, Woolf is very dramatic when it comes to her texts. She makes sure to include numerous characters, in which have a conflict. With this form of writing she, not only grasps the reader’s attention more the amount of suspense, but she also creates a story that others can relate too. Poetry is such a diverse topic, with each poet have a certain method or style preferred to than another, and others prefer different subjects.
To the Lighthouse by Virginia Woolf Reading To the Lighthouse was more than just another literary experience for me. Virginia Woolf wrote in such a way that challenged my mind, spoke to my emotions and in essence she shut me up and made me listen. Listening was not hard seeing that she had much to say and a unique way of saying it. I found a sensitivity in Woolf's work that I appreciated as it is not a style seen in the work of today. I am only afraid that due to its subtlety, it may go unnoticed by some of my generation of readers.
The speaker sets up the sense of resignation with the first three lines and surrenders an aspect of her control, she may not be able to control when or how loss occurs but she refuses to let this affect her on a deeper emotional level. The next line “lose something every day, accept the fluster” is the entrance into the lie, the speaker is referring to loss in such a nonchalant manner which will continue until the end eve in regards to the loss of a loved one, which is in no way healthy. The speaker tries to convey that loss in inevitable and one should just accept that and move on; wallowing in the effects of loss is pointless and just causes more loss, through the loss of time “the hour badly spent” (line 5). Any time spent toward thinking about, looking for or trying to hold onto lost things is pointless in the speakers mind and should be avoided by just closing the page of that book and accepting that the things will not be coming
Ironically, if the speaker feels that she is “Nobody” because others ignore her or have negative perceptions of her, then her poem is a way of defying that kind of treatment—a way of making sure that she is indeed noticed. The meaning of the saying by itself “I am Nobody,” calls herself to our attention. The second half of the first line of the paradox then asks, “Who are you?” Although, the speaker maybe ignored or humble, or both, she seems to not unfriendly or have issues socializing. She immediately reaches out to the unknown persons referred to in the poem as “you,” a reference perhaps to the reader. It is as if the speaker were trying to establish a dialogue with another
Past events play integral parts in both the poems and help continue to express the ideas intended by the poet. Title is probably the most important aspect of a poem or story other than the author's identity. It's the title that attracts the normal readers to check out a certain poem, considering the reader is not familiar with the author's stand in the world of poetry and writing. 'Digging' is probably the most suitable and logical title of the poem. But is the... ... middle of paper ... ...'s had to receive and by observing those events through his eyes he can feel the sufferings of those women in his mind.
In Poetry by Marianna Moore she shows a different style, but she is also stating rules that she thinks should be followed when writing poetry. In her poem it is unclear what she is writing about until you analyze it closely. In the first few lines she says that there are things more important that poetry but once you read it you realize that it is really cool. In the following lines she says that poems are important because they are useful and when they are not original they are basically garbage. To her poetry must be something that can be somewhat easily understood because people do not admire what they cannot understand.
In adding Imagery as well as figurative language into her poem she was able to paint a picture for the reader of the bitterness that she was feeling, and the theme of rising above or overcoming. Angelou incorporated the poetic device repetition into her poem to be sure that the reader received her theme of overcoming and rising above and to make known that she did overcome her trials. In using these poetic devices Angelou was able to get her theme and experience that she wanted express through her poem.
