- Walt Whitman – Poetic Realist Walt Whitman, one of the great American poets of the 19th and 20th centuries, was inspired to further his passion and talent for writing by what some would refer to as a call to action, by the writer Ralph Waldo Emerson. Emerson, known in his time as an “American Transcendentalist” writer, called poets of the mid 1800s into action with his essay entitled: “The Poet.” The fact that Walt Whitman, considered a realist poet, was inspired in part by this transcendentalist perfectly illustrates the constant progression of literary styles of that time....   [tags: transcendentalism, poetic analysis]

The Death of a Poetic Revolution

- Throughout the late 20th and early 21st century many poets spent their careers attempting to “shift … writing away from the readable,” (McCaffery, 150) and create and avant-garde form of new and innovative poetry. Language poetry was first on this scene, primed and ready to start, according to Andrew Epstein in his essay “Verse Vs. Verse”, an “oppositional movement.” (46) The only problem is, with most avant-garde movements, the interest of the intellectuals soon follows.

Poetic Structure in Ozymandias

The Poetic Creative Process

- The poetic creative process is certainly a daunting task; one that takes the author through a world that distracts, terrifies, angers, and eventually elates the artist. It is difficult, attempting to create “a house that attempts to be haunted” in the span of a few, or even many lines of poetry. How can a poet possibly include ghosts that will haunt the reader in every single one of their poems. That seems to be the first test of success or failure as an artist. That is not to say that if every work is not perfect then it fails, but perhaps the author must continually revise their work in order to grow, which sets forth the frustrating, terrifying, and sometimes heartbreaking creative proce...   [tags: T. S. Eliot, The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock]

Poetic Wordplay

- One of the recurring themes within Manyoshu, a collection of over 4,000 poems (Keene 1955, 33) written by a variety of authors—some of whom were emperors and their paramours—is love and the coping with the loss of one’s love. The very nature of the Manyoshu lends itself to this subject matter, particularly since many of the poetic works contained within are tankas that are highly symbolic and suggestive of association. As such, many of the poets found within this work utilized various literary devices to express their notions of love and its absence, some of the most important of which include diverse aspects of diction, anaphora, alliteration, and other forms of sentence structure....   [tags: Poetry Analysis ]

French New Wave and Poetic Realism

- Since the very first actualities from the Lumière brothers and the fantastical shorts of Maries Georges Jean Méliès, cinema has continually fulfilled its fundamental purpose of artistic reflection on societal contexts throughout the evolution of film. Two French cinematic movements, Poetic Realism (1934-1940) and French New Wave (1950-1970), serve as historical bookends to World War II, one of the most traumatic events in world history. The Rules of the Game (Jean Renoir, 1939) is a classic example of French Poetic realism that depicts the disillusionment in society and government politics by a generation already traumatized by the monumental loss of human life during the First World War....   [tags: cinema, The Rules of the Game, Breathless]

Use Of Poetic Techniques And Video Performance
