Powerful Or Helpless : The Ruse Of Choice With Meticulous

- “Powerful or Helpless: The Ruse of Choice with Meticulous Nuance” Poem 303, or “The Soul selects her own Society,” is a strong poem written by Emily Dickinson. Dickinson creates a strong, unmoving voice belonging to “the Soul” who is supposedly choosing her companionships, but there are small nuances that may cause one to read the poem in various ways. The poem may be read with a tone that is godly and/or royal. It may also be read as the Soul having a choice on her companionships or the ruse of having a choice....   [tags: Poetry, Rhyme, Poetic form, Half rhyme]

Sonnet 80 By William Shakespeare

- Sonnet 80 Explication In William Shakespeare’s Sonnet 80, he presents a speaker that reveals his affections and afflictions for a young man about whom Shakespeare often writes. The speaker begins by bringing up a rival poet that he has referred to before in previous sonnets. In the second quatrain, Shakespeare begins his conceit by comparing the speaker and his rival to boats on the young man’s “ocean” (5) of worth. The speaker then acknowledges the possibility that he may be of little worth in the eyes of his beloved when such a comparison is made, or when his words are portrayed side by side with those of a superior poet....   [tags: Poetry, Iambic pentameter, Poetic form, Iamb]

The Splendor Falls On Castle Walls By Alfred Lord Tennyson

- “The splendor falls on castle walls” by Alfred, Lord Tennyson, despite its talk of beautiful scenery by a castle and his discussion of the color, light and sound there is a more underlying somber theme. He is writing about the memories that are left behind when someone leaves, moves on or dies and how some things are passed from person to person like an echo bounces off the walls of the mountains but also how those memories can also be lost like how an echo eventually loses the sound. While he says the echo is dying, it could be interpreted as someone not only dying but leaving in a different way such as moving away and the memories fading just from not seeing them....   [tags: Poetry, Rhyme, Rhyme scheme, Poetic form]

John Donne 's Holy Sonnet 14 : Batter My Heart, Three Personed God

- “For he who is called by the Lord as a slave is the Lord 's freedman. Likewise he who is called as a free man is Christ 's slave.” What the Apostle Paul was writing to the church of Corinth, Greece, seems to be intellectual paradox as a man cannot be a freedman and slave at the same time. This same idea is dealt with in John Donne’s “Holy Sonnet 14: Batter my Heart, Three Personed God” published in 1633. In this poem, the speaker is crying out to God to be set free from his slavery to sin and the evil one....   [tags: Poetry, Sonnet, Poetic form, Iambic pentameter]

Free Verse Is An Open Form Of Poetry

Free verse seemed to be the form of choice in ENG 407/507, and those who wrote in a traditional form usually did so as part of an assignment. Addonizio and Laux write: The issue, of course, isn’t whether anyone should write free verse or formal; that decision should come out of the poem’s requirements, out of the integration of form and content. Free verse, after all, has form, too.

- Authors and poets primarily use literary devices to provide a greater understanding for their own work, yet some writers use them effectively while others fail in doing so. In “Grenadier” the poet, A.E Housman effectively uses symbolism, meter, rhyme and imagery to emphasize the cheap price of human life during a war, within the perspective of a dying draft soldier. This poem follows a common meter that consists of an iambic tetrameter followed by an iambic trimeter.

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.

An Analysis of the Epic Poem, Beowulf - Poetic Devices in Beowulf

- Poetic Devices in Beowulf       There are a small variety of poetic devices employed in the composition of the poem Beowulf, and they are repeated numerous times.   The Old English poetry of Beowulf is distinguished primarily by its heavy use of  allliteration, or the repetition of the initial sounds of words. In the original manuscript version of the poem, alliteration is employed in almost every line (or two half-lines); in modern translations of the poem this is not so. In lines 4 and 5 of the poem we find:   Oft Scyld Scefing                               sceapena preatum monegum maegpum                           meodo-setla ofteah   The repetition of the “s” sound in line...   [tags: Epic Beowulf essays]

Poetry Conveys Deeper Feelings with Poetic Devices

Poets use rhyme scheme, structured pattern in the sonnet that rhyme the words at the end of a line.
