This English Course explored different poets’ poetry. Throughout this course a wide range of different poems was presented for analytical purpose to understand the history during those times. This course helped bring to light on the meanings behind of each poet 's poems. For me taking this course I was not interested in poetry at all but now after taking this class I have learned to appreciate the beautiful poets that express their beliefs in many of their poetry, yet the stimulating moment when my mind engaged with an author 's thought. As William Blake once said “As a man is, so he sees.
First, Is my work leaves an impact on you when you read. Are you able to connect to my theme easily? In other words, is my writing explicit? Finally, what do you miss in poetry that you would like to see in my future poems? Even though, I wasn 't able to obtain many critiques from my peers, I was more inspired by their writing techniques and how they expressed themselves.
I was surprised to find that I could use so many of the techniques that poets use in writing my own essays. For example, by choosing certain words, I can set the tone for the essay and demonstrate certain attitudes. Also, I can take advantage of several technical methods, such as abstractions, assonance, and figures of speech to make an essay more interesting. Further, I think it is important to try and understand the poets meaning behind their word choice.

Furthermore, the goals and plans I would have for poetry in my life are unknown as of now. I enjoy writing poetry, I get comfort from it, but in my future I hope to concentrate on a more narrative form of writing, like books, short stories, and screenplays. However, what I’ve learned in this class will benefit my writing greatly outside of the poetry field, the techniques that help capture us in our writing, as well as those that captivate our
College Admissions Essay - I Grew Up with Emily Dickinson Emily Dickinson was a part of my household ever since I can recall. She was introduced to me quite dramatically. My mother, with her omnipresent distant look, would suddenly begin to recite the famous poetry as though taking inspiration from some preternatural cue. I understood that a transmigration was occurring, although it was hard to pinpoint the direction. At times, it seemed Emily was contacting my mother, giving her a phantom tap on the shoulder, indicating she would like to hear one of her poems recited in earth time.
Confessional poetry emerged partly as a reaction to this train of thought; rather, the Confessional poets originated their school on the idea of themselves as unique individuals bringing something personal and distinctive to readers. The rise of this brand of poetry also coincided with the notorious political and social changes that occurred at the same time, and much of this was reflected in the poems. These changes allowed the Confessional poets to explore issues in their work that had previously been taboo, and had never been discussed before in such a public forum, such as abortions, divorces, mental disorders, and suicide.

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.

Romanticism seemed to be the time in which a sonnet moved past being simply a love poem and focused more on other emotions and events, such as death, nature, politics, deeper appreciations for things, imagination, and just overall a more heightened focus on the human condition. I’ve been researching just how that all has affected the sonnet as a lyric. The issues my project is researching is just how the sonnet is a lyric. How a sonnet is read as a lyric, as well.

Ultimately, I was able to create one after reading Marisa Pagnattaro’s critical essay, “An overview of “The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock”. I also picked to write about T. S.
