The White Doe, by Francesco Petrarch

- Through language a poet allows himself the license to hint at things unrevealed by the literal meaning of a poem. The use of one distinct word over another often suggests a double meaning. “The White Doe” functions on two levels. First on a literal level, a man on a pursuit after a beautiful white doe; and secondly on a figurative level, suggesting that the white doe is really the speakers ideal woman. The “antlers of gold” mentioned in line two represent the duality of the woman. The antlers conjure up images of pain while gold suggests a certain beauty....   [tags: The White Doe Essays]

This can make Whitman's poetry a little confusing to some. In his many stanzas, definition of the soul is ambiguous and somewhat contradictory. Whitman says, "Clear and sweet is my soul....and clear and sweet is all that is not my soul" (Lauter, p. 2745). What I believe Whitman is saying here is that his soul and everything else that is not his soul, including the souls of others, is clear and sweet....   [tags: Song of Myself Essays]
