explication of cummings' poem since feeling is first

- explication of e. e. cummings' poem since feeling is first       e. e. cummings' "since feeling is first" is about feeling (802).  This is immediately evident from the title and first line, which emphasize the word "feeling" in several different ways.  The stresses on "feel-" and "first," as well as the alliteration between those two words, make explicit their connection and importance, and the repetition of the same line in both title and first line serves to enhance the effect.       The meaning of the first line is clear, but because of cummings' characteristic absence of punctuation and capitalization as well as sentence structure, the next few lines are more ambiguous.  The first t...   [tags: since feeling is first]

Analysis of e.e. cummings' since feeling is first

- Analysis of e.e. cummings' since feeling is first   E. E. Cummings' poem "since feeling is first" is a poem which shows how emotions dictate people's actions and why the narrator thinks they should. The poem implies that to follow one's heart is better than following one's mind, yet, at the same time the poem is the narrator's analysis of why emotion comes before thought. The last line of the poem brings a twist on theme that the rest of the poem seems to be following. It speaks of death and of thought, rather than of life and emotion, showing that death is something that should not be ignored in life, and that thought is important even with the domination of feeling....   [tags: since feeling is first poem poetry]

The Feeling of Loosing a Family Pet

- While I was looking through chapter 16, I was trying to figure out what literary approach would fit. The approach I found the most fitting was the reader response approach. A Dog's Death could be considered a double entendre. On one hand, John Updike is replaying an emotional tone of sadness, frustration, and the feeling of losing a family pet. To the reader, you are able to feel his pain. But, it is even more emotional if you can relate to the poem. I lost both of my grandparents in a three month span to cancer....   [tags: john updike, dog's death, pets]

Happiness: It’s a Feeling, Not a Pursuit

- When I was little and up to my late teen years I always thought that the American dream was to own a big house with nice cars, a boat maybe, a dog or two, to live a happy life, make lots of money, have a couple kids and a nice chiseled piece of man candy on my arm. Seems nice right. Especially the money and man candy part.

Emotion and Feeling in Lord Byron's Poetry

Furthermore, poetry which is based on emotions (whether negative or positive) is what makes it successful in evoking a more personal response from the reader. When exploring poetry references such as 'The English Poetic Mind' by Charles Williams, he states how when 'We are told of a thing; we are made to feel as if that thing were possible to us; and we are so made to feel it-whatever the thing may be, joy or despair...knowledge is an intense satisfaction to us '1....   [tags: Poetry Analysis]

However, there is always a point when the pain becomes too real and it is hard to maintain that distance.

It is often called the Universal language because music can convey information like a feeling, an attitude or a mood (Chris Dobrian, 1992). It affects people in a way deeper than regular speech.

Letters to Juliet: What is Love?

- There are many mysteries in life; one of many happens to be love. Love is such an easy thing to grasp, but to hold and truly understand it will dumbfound philosophers for a millennia and a millennia more to come. To understand such a thing is like asking; why does the sun set. Why do the ones we say we “love” leave us. To give an answer in a matter of seconds would almost certainly be wrong.

After Great Pain, A Formal Feeling Comes--

- Elements of despair evident from the inner workings of Emily Dickinson are present in her poem, “After Great Pain, A Formal Feeling Comes--.” Emily Dickinson led a difficult life which left her alone.
