Diction in Disillusionment of Ten O' Clock

- Diction in Disillusionment of Ten O' Clock What do you dream about. Do you dream of exciting adventures and think of colorful worlds. Wallace Stevens claims that sailors are the ones scattered throughout society who dream of these things.

The denotation in Stevens' poem displays his weariness of society's dull approach to life. When he begins talking about how, The houses are haunted by white night-gowns....   [tags: Ten O' Clock Essays]

Disillusionment Of Ten O ' Clock, By Wallace Stevens And The Lamb

- Poetry can be easily separated from other pieces of literature. Often when I think of poetry I think of someone expressing themselves in a particularly imaginative way.

Neutral Diction in Disillusionment of Ten O'Clock

- The Disillusionment of Ten O'Clock, what a time of night. "The houses are haunted by white night-gowns." Everything is the same from one house to the next. Not only does Wallace Stevens hint at the Disillusionment of Ten O'Clock, he also brings forth feelings of loneliness and despair through his select use of neutral diction. Stevens emphasizes neutral diction using parallelism and repetition, the sameness of the syntax, and an ironic change in wording. Nevertheless, the emotion of the poem is only brought about by Stevens' specific use of neutral diction....   [tags: Wallace Stevens]
