The central theme of his poetry is his own intense personal dispositions, as a lover, a friend, a psychoanalyst of his own experiences, worldly and religious. Classical poetry cannot unify these experiences; it is John Donne’s use of the metaphysical that allows him to present his poetry as a whole experience, and to show feelings as they are. This technique proves him not only successful in teaching and delighting audience, but achieving both so effectively that they have the ability to affect readers deeply.
But all of these things are what makes poetry pleasurable for me. Poetry isn’t simple as ABC for everyone. Poetry exists to tell of significant experience cleverly and creatively, expanding our knowledge of the senses. Modern poetry is significant to everyday life because it dares us to break free from the safe strategies of a discreet mind, enabling us to honor the unknown, both in us and in the world. John Keating stated in “Dead Poets Society” “We don’t read and write poetry because it’s cute.
I would say that he was passionate about his work . He was blessed with the skill to write and express his feelings through poetry . He was an English poet who was mostly concerned with elemental forces of his life .Barker was one of those poets many people fail to remember .I think he should be remember better than he is .He is one of those poets people struggle to remember . After my research I found out that Barker was no minor poet. He was very passionate about his .
I believe that now he is more recognized for his works of poetry. The two quotes by him that affected me in a positive manner were, “Freedom lies in being bold” and “Forgive me my nonsense, as I also forgive the nonsense of those that think they talk sense.” He informed that life is not only about what we see with our naked eye but what we don’t see. It’s about what we feel in our hearts, as well. Works Cited Hollander, John. “A Close Look at Robert Frost.” Poets.org.
For example, he wrote ... ... middle of paper ... ...ems as this can be seen in Wordsworth's poem 'The solitary Reaper'. She is a labourer in a field and this work in reality is very hard, back-breaking work. But Wordsworth does not see this and his romantic style, he beautifies the poem destroying any sense of harshness to be found. With Thomas however, it can be seen that he views the harshness and reality of life giving his poetry a more realistic touch. I prefer reading Thomas' poems because these topics actually are involved in my life.
"The Road Not Taken" is literally a story about a walk on a road one fall morning. The title even tells of the idea that a choice has been made before reading the poem. The opening line tells how the road broke into a "y." This simple "y" in the road alludes also to Frost’s first line of the poem and his choice of yellow ("y") to describe the fall trees. This is a simple natural symbol but, when looked into further, shows how he is looking to the winter, the future, which is a harsh season.
Walt Whitman According to the critics, Walt Whitman is one of America's most inspiring and imaginative poets. Taking ordinary thoughts, Whitman develops ingenious and beautiful stanzas that capture the attention of readers to this day. "Re-examine all that you have been told... dismiss that which insults your soul" (ThinkExist). Taking everyday moments, Whitman provides descriptive, yet intriguing ideas pertaining to the human soul. As many past authors, Whitman's life outside of being a writer was somewhat disruptive at times.
Imagery is one of the most powerful tools in any writer’s tool box. Both Robert Frost and Walt Whitman were innovative poets ahead of their time. Whitman had invented “free verse” writing and pioneered naturalistic writing. He also used powerful imagery to depict the norms of everyday life, even in the times of the Civil War (“Vigil Strange I Kept”). Robert Frost used more traditional rhythm and meter, but also used nature to paint a literary picture for his readers to “see” the settings in his poetry and put his readers from the West Coast of America, or across the Atlantic in the United Kingdom, in the beautiful winter scene of New England (“Birches”).
He decides that he must take Goya as his role model and accept responsibility for the atrocities in the north and reflect them in his poetry. While “Summer 1969” may not be considered as compelling as the previous two poems mentioned it is the most responsible, honest and well thought-out poem of the three. It was indeed Goya that inspired this change of heart in Heaney when he saw the painter was not afraid to accept responsibility as an artist and allow himself be stained with the blood of history. “...He painted with his fists and elbows, flourished / The stained cape of his heart as history charged”.
However, these quotes support the importance of emotion within poetry, but what about the importance of emotion within the poet? Throughout this essay, Lord Byron will be the main poet of focus, as his notorious lifestyle suggests that true emotion may have been his weakness. His poems 'Fare Thee Well!' (composed 18 March 1816: From Poems (1816)) and 'When we two parted' (composed August or September 1815: From Poems (1816)) will also be the primary focus, as they represent two negative influences which happened in Byron's life that would have produced an emotional response. When first approaching Byron's poetry, the reader would find it difficult not to judge the poem without putting it in the context of his famous reputation.
