The vitality of the poem comes from the reader, if a poem is able to surprise and jolt those who read it then it has successfully come to life; something about that poem was able clasp the complex mind of a reader. The connection formed between the poem and its reader dictates the grandeur and entity of the poem itself. Poems, in their most essential and stripped form, are just a clever combination of words. Imagery, metaphors, lineation, assonance and consonance are elements that bring poems to life in the readers eyes, but what brings these elements to life? Words.
In conclusion, I am a contextualist thinker/perceiver of the world. Poetry is of the most mysterious and wonderful pieces of literature, in my opinion, because it allows your mind to reach into the depth of your soul and express emotion and truth through passion.

Donne experiments with rhythmical effect a he does with conceits and words. The thought in his poetry is not the primary concern but the feeling. It is this very feeling , a delight in his conceits, and a new understanding of what the conceit is expressing and teaching, that he successfully imparts in his readers. 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.
Poe wrote it when he was going through some difficult times and this is reflected in the overall feeling, which is emitted from the poem. Poe’s description of the setting in “The Raven” and his use of figurative language and symbolism help create one of the best poems he wrote and an atmosphere, which can still be felt by the readers today. One of the strongest elements of this poem is its setting and the atmosphere, which is created by it. Poe pays great attention to even the smallest detail, which has its significant meaning within the whole. In various lines he describes the setting and without even noticing it the reader is getting a very clear picture of it.
A large part of romanticism is the author expression raw emotion within the poem and Wordsworth is able to share with his reader a time when nature has helped him through a hard time. Romantic poetry is not just the freedom of emotion; but also includes the authors appreciation for common
Robert Frost once said “A poem begins as a lump in the throat, a sense of wrong, a homesickness, a lovesickness.” “It’s when an emotion has found its thought and the thought finds words. Poetry is a vital language of the heart. Poems rely on the writer’s deep and intensive feelings toward a subject. Poems can help a person find their inner feelings that one could not express directly to someone, but only could explain with pen and paper. Poetry draws on the senses and the senses give deep access to the poet’s inside feelings.

I personally think that my poems are really inspiring and I want other people to read them when they are feeling down and get carried away by them. I truly like writing poems because for me that is the only way to escape from reality and enter the world of imagination.
Another object of love is the boy in the poem, which the author's voice allows us to assume is Whitman himself.Another major factor affecting the communication of Whitman's ideas on death is the diction and tone of each poem.

I am not particularly keen on poetry, but I do like Whitman's poetry because it is so beautiful..The boy, the speaker, is transformed, and then translates his experiences in nature into a language the reader can understand. What is special about the boy, why he can become "The Poet" is the risks he takes. He's not only alone, which seems to be necessary in order to be a great Poet, but also "bareheaded, barefoot," to the natural elements.
Great poetry tells a story in a manner unique and improved by the nature of poetry. For instance, Edgar Allan Poe’s “The Raven” most definitely tells a story, but the method it is told is conveyed in a manner only possible through poetry. Usage of repetition, refrain, as well as highly detailed and connotative language convey the story, yes, but work alongside this to create the eerie and dreadful mood that is so very characteristic of Poe. All of the poetic devices are used tactfully and creatively to create a powerful sense of emotion in the reader, whether it pertains to the mood or theme. As well, excellent poetry is something that sticks with the reader long after it has been observed.
This use of imagery emphasizes the reflective nature of Keats, and I find it a very effective way to show how he is thinking. As the nightingale represents death, Keats embraces it and sees it as the only real painless way. “I have been half in love with easeful Death, Call’d... ... middle of paper ... ...other groan; Where palsy shakes a few, sad, last grey hairs, Where youth grows pale, and spectre-thin, and dies;” Conversely, this shows life as a painful thing, from which Keats wants release. He has made his mind up as to what life is like for him and others. This contemplation shows where he is in his life and musings.
