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.
Emily Dickinson is a well know author of poetry that is known for her ability to pull the readers in and create a world within her poetry. In the poem “Because I could not stop for death” she is able to create a clear and crisp image for the audience that makes it very clear what is going on. Even after only one read through it can be easy to pick up on over 50% of her imagery and metaphors, which is not always the easiest to do with poetry since the writers are usually limited to smaller amounts of dialogue for the audience to infer from. This is also abundantly clear after reading another poem of hers called “Success is counted Sweetest”, where she creates the clear image of a solider who was wounded in battle that his side ultimately won.
Her work has encouraged modern poets to experiment with their language and form due to her altering of traditional form and thought (Huffstutler 3). Emily Dickinson proved time and time again to be worthy of her title as one of the best poets in American history. She not only contains all the essential qualities of a good poet, but she also contains rare qualities that make her stand out. Dickinson played a huge role in earning her title, but she did not earn it by herself. Dickinson’s life, from great tragedies to loving family members and famous poets, greatly inspired her poetry.
Most people could not so the metaphor she used out in perspective for those who are not writers. In a small sense this poem lets the reader gaze into Bradstreet’s nature and our own. This poem along with all the other she wrote was a way for her to express her emotions into words, in this case about something very specific. As a columnist I can appreciate what she is doing and I understand the feeling she was trying to convey about the judgment she was sure to receive from the publishing of here work. Through her use of this extended metaphor, Bradstreet weaves a brilliantly intricate web of parallels: Parent and author, child and book, creator to creation.
Christina Rossetti was also an English poet who wrote many melancholic poems with symbolic religious themes. Elizabeth Browning was a famous poet of Victorian England best known for her romance with Robert Browning and her "Sonnets From The Portuguese" which is widely read. Edith Nesbit was an English novelist, poet and writer of stories for children though her novels and poems never gained much recognition as much as her stories for children. "First Love" by John Clare is a romantic poem about love at first sight. This poem is linked to love and loss, and has got all the sweet memories of falling in love for the first time and all the pain for losing it at the same time.
Bra... ... middle of paper ... ...because the men of the time wrote about adventure and childbearing, while dangerous, was not thought to be exciting. Bradstreet brought her personal experiences as a woman into her writing and also provided an opening to a whole new dimension to American literature. Soon she would be the great poet being emulated by others. Edward Taylor is an example of this. In his poem "Huswifery," Taylor used the spinning wheel—a domestic item-as his metaphor.
This plea to men reflects her deep emotions within her poetry, although it seems she acknowledges that her pleas will go unheard. Anne Bradstreet and Emily Dickinson’s unique writing style allows them to be viewed today as gifted and respected poets. By specifically writing about their poetry within her poetry, Bradstreet and Dickinson were able to freely express their opinions and beliefs in a creative manner. These creative abilities set both Bradstreet and Dickinson apart from their peers; combining imagination, as seen through Bradstreet’s “The Author to Her Book,” and Dickinson’s poems 326, and 441; and emotion, seen in Bradstreet’s “The Prologue” and “The Author to Her Book,” and Dickinson’s poems 199, 326, and 441, to express their ideas. Their struggle as women is also heard in much of their poetry, casting light on the male oppression of female poets.
Poems such as the one at hand illustrate the occurrence of church in all aspects of life, and even though she chose not to accept it, it was still a part of her. Her outward resentment towards the church left a void in her life which, one could assume, acted as a catalyst for the mental breakdown that she depicts in this poem. Emily Dickinson was a poet that was very different from other poets of her time. The fact that she withdrew herself from society and that she was a woman made her poetry quite unique. Because she had no contact with other poets of her time, her style was quite original.
It is said that in her later years Dickinson refused to leave her house. When company would come to the door she would run upstairs to avoid them. She only totally secluded herself from adults. She made gingerbread for the neighborhood children and played games with them occasionally. No matter what rumors circulated there is no doubt that Emily Dickinson is a wonderful poet.
Elizabeth Barrett-Browning and W.B. Yeats Elizabeth Barrett-Browning and W.B. Yeats, examined together in the same sitting are as different as the Victorian and Post-Modernist eras they emerged from, yet they were both independent thinkers of their time. Browning, born in 1806 before Victorianism came into full play, was celebrated as a woman poet but also quite conformist to the Victorian movement in some regards. Browning did make use of her family's money to "give herself an exceptional education" (1858) and she thought outside of traditional lines in regards to gender roles for women as in her poem "Aurora Leigh".
