I think that the theme in this poem that Sappho is trying to portray is that cicada’s are just like people in the summertime, loving life and coming out to have a good time. In line 1 Sappho opens with, “flaming summer”, which sends great imagery into the reader’s brain. It takes the individual who is reading the poem back to a really hot summers day that the reader has experienced. When it is so hot outside that all we want to do is jump into a big pool, or drink an ice-cold cup of water, or even eat a n ice cold popsicle. It makes the human being come out of our shells.
After reading the title "We Real Cool" one would assume that the intent of the poem is going to be about a group of people who are fortunate and live a flamboyant lifestyle. This is not the case for the "seven players" in Brooks's poem. After reading the entire poem, the true meaning is revealed. "We Real Cool" focuses on the life of "seven players" who drop out of school. Their daily life is carefree and consists of playing pool, drinking alcohol, and using vulgar language.
Memes can be universal, thus they have become a major source of entertainment. Generally speaking, people may be able to pick up the general message of a meme. For example the “Condescending Wonka” is known for its sarcasm, the structure of the meme typically asks a question, then responds to it in a condescending manner. Therefore if someone other than the intended audience views the meme, they will get the general concept. In the example I used, someone may not understand the insignificance of dancing twice a week, however they may understand that dancing twice a week is not enough to label yourself as a “devoted dancer.” That specific meme appeals to pathos, it triggers an understanding that creates frustration in how loosely the term “dancer” is used.
It originated as an adaption of neo jazz. The swing era arrived when the great depression arrived. This era was popular because it is said to be that people started dancing off their anxiety and depression. In the swing era there were dyads, which are two people groups. In the club there were many couples dancing and singing as popular swing bands enlightened the club.
The dancing moves are both exciting and sexy. In Cuba, they dance to a type of Salsa Timba. The movement is fast as in Afro Cuban music. Cuban Musicians have blended in the popular Reggae and Pop music in between the breaks. The dancing style is called “Casino” simply because when it was started it was played in gambling joints or casinos.
Jazz brought together individuals, who had the common goal of making music. This was especially true when evaluating the African American population. They knew that they had to bond together in order to survive the constant discrimination they faced each and every day, and jazz seemed to help them unite on a deeper level as they expressed all of their feelings through song. On top of that, each musician involved in a jazz band brought something unique to the table, and this diversity make some incredible things happen through the various instruments and notes being played. While playing, these musicians soon began improvising and playing “off the cuff” (Vernick, 2009).
The poet starts off the poem with a metaphoric Question of whether he "Shall compare thee to a summer's day?" this is a positive question asking whether the beauty of the summer is worthy of that compared to his lover/mistress. This is an effective metaphor because it suggests that the woman is either more or equally beautiful as the calm and warm summer which reinforces the idea of everlasting beauty. A summer day is calm and generally suppose to be filled with life and the beauty of the nature, which alludes to the beloveds' beauty. In line three of the poem the speaker compares the beloved to the summer day which is imperfect compared to the beloved.
