Poetic Analysis of Fern Hill

- Poetic Analysis "Fern Hill" Dylan Thomas's poem "Fern Hill" represents the passage of one mans life from boyhood to adulthood and the realization of his mortality. The speaker in this poem uses expressive language and imagery to depict a tale of growing up. The use of colour adds life and character to people and abstract ideas. He looks up to "Time" (313) as an authority figure who has strict control of his life, and with descriptions of biblical figures we can presume that he is a religious person who believes that God is in control of his destiny....   [tags: Poetry Essays Poem Fern Hill ]

Analysis Of The Poem ' Fern Hill '

- "Fern Hill" “Fern Hill” was written to show Dylan Thomas’s disappointment for the lack of appreciation he had for his carefree life as a child. Figurative language is used to create a deeper connection between the layers of the poem from the surface story to the underlying allegorical meaning. These layers, as well as the lilting pattern of the poem, add to the mood’s progression throughout the story. The overall point, involving the change through the narrator’s life and his nostalgia for the carefree life he no longer has, sums up the theme: that the changes of life over time are not always pleasant....   [tags: Metaphor, Adam and Eve, Life, Poetry]

Fern Hill by Dylan Thoma

Time in Thomas’ Fern Hill and Cummings’ anyone lived in a pretty how town

- "Historically speaking,…time is lost; poetically speaking,…time is regained in the act of visionary creation" (Crewe 400). Poetry allows for the capture of a moment in time otherwise lost in the blink of an eye. British poet Dylan Thomas and American poet E.E. Cummings have both been noted for the recurring themes of passage of time in their poetry. In Thomas’ "Fern Hill" and Cummings’ "anyone lived in a pretty how town," both modern poets utilize a juxtaposition of paradoxes to express the irrevocable passage of time and the loss of innocence attributed to it....   [tags: anyone lived in a pretty how town]

- Gothic Horror in Susan Hill's The Woman in Black and H.G. Wells' The Red Room As with all things, the gothic horror genre of literature did not begin at one definable point, but evolved gradually.
