Sandburg's style of writing is what changed the course of American poetry. Before Sandburg, most poetry and other literary works were considerably similar, along with dull and boring. He carried poetry to "new horizons." He, many times, wrote of reality, which was not always what people wanted to read, but it was reality and it had to be dealt with. This is how his writing became so known, because he dealt with what was real in our fantasy world.
Nikki means diary and although it was more common for women to write these, there were men that tried and wrote nikki’s too. The Ise monogatari was the earliest Uta monogatari, literally meaning poem tale. Ise monogatari is attributed to Ariwara no Narihira, although it is not documented and can’t be proven. The poems in Ise monogatari tell stories of feelings more elegantly than regular text. The imagery the poems can show and the strong emotion that the reader can feel from reading them really makes them popular.
"His customary evasions of logical and thematic closure allow his poetry to register cultural nuances and patterns that…more overt narrative or thematic intent might overlook" (Miller 3). John Ashbery's poetry, through the use of unique techniques that evade traditional poetry writing, allow said nuances to be discovered. His writing is a cluster of ideas shoved into a page too small to fit all the words. The patterns created in his writing may seem random and chaotic, but each line is a whisper of a bigger truth; his truth. John Ashbery is a post-modernism writer who incorporates into his writing elements of the Romantic era while giving it his own twist to discuss larger issues such as life itself, and the elements of life.
Thomas is a poet known greatly for his indulgence in his love for poetry and literature. Parallel to this is the unique way Thomas was able to write his works about ideas and themes outside the environment he was contained to live within. His strict childhood and middle age life, which was largely filled with drinking, and wondering slums played some part in shaping his work, but can be overlooked if studied correctly. Dylan Marlais Thomas was born on October 27, 1914, in the Welsh seaport of Swansea. Both his parents held respectable jobs and he lived under a middleclass household.
