The Ode On A Grecian Urn By John Keats

- An “Ode on a Grecian Urn” by John Keats is one of five great odes, characterized by great technical difficulty. The speaker, presumably Keats, addresses an “unravish’d bride,” which is the first of many figurative language techniques used in the ode, in five stanzas, each stanza complete with a separate subject. It is assumed that Keats was diagnosed with tuberculosis as he was composing this poem, which can explain the interest with immortality throughout the narrative. The structure Keats crafts along with his usage of figurative language allows for the overall theme of the poem to be presented; however, Keats usage of paradoxes implies a dual theme with several lines of his ode, which is...   [tags: Poetry, Sonnet, Rhyme scheme, Poetic form]

Death Is The Inevitable And Unavoidable Conclusion

Shakespeare’s “Sonnet 73” tackles the theme of aging and death with an aging speaker who compares his late life to late autumn or early winter. The speaker goes on to explain to his loved one that he/she must express his/her love to him more than ever, as death is upon him. The song “When I Get Where I’m Going”performed by Brad Paisley also tackles the theme of death....   [tags: Poetry, Poetic form, Rhyme scheme, Sonnet]

William Shakespeare 's Sonnet 130

- Although many people find flaws in others, there always comes a time where one seems to let go of these imperfections and replace the defects with love Sonnet 130 is a unique love poem in which William Shakespeare describes the women he claims to love, in many critical ways. Although the first twelve lines describe the women to be distasteful and vile, the last two lines create a shift in which Shakespeare explains that despite her unsavory ways, he still loves her. Shakespeare illustrates that there is not a perfect person in the world, but that one day everyone will be able to find someone who will look past their faults and love them the way they are....   [tags: Poetry, Sonnet, Iambic pentameter, Poetic form]

Aristotle's Poetics: Complexity and Pleasure in Tragedy

- Aristotle's Poetics: Complexity and Pleasure in Tragedy Aristotle 384-322 BC First, the instinct of imitation is implanted in man from childhood, one difference between him and other animals being that he is the most imitative of living creatures, and through imitation learns his earliest lessons; and no less universal is the pleasure felt in things imitated. We have evidence of this in the facts of experience.

An Analysis of Wallace Stevens' "Sunday Morning" Poem

- Transcendentalism, a spiritual, philosophical, and literary movement, flourished during the mid-nineteenth century in response to a major disagreement within the Unitarian Church. Boston ministers at the time thought that the church was too conservative, so they established a new philosophy honoring individual wisdom over religion. Although this philosophy, Transcendentalism, received its inspiration from European Romanticism, it became a unique American movement emphasizing individualism. Indeed, with the rampant materialism stemming from the Industrial Revolution, many Transcendentalists encouraged individuals to seek a solitary and harmonious relationship with nature....   [tags: Language, Religion, Nature]

Wilfred Owen

- Wilfred Owen can be considered to be one of the finest war poets of all times. His war poems, a collection of works composed between January 1917, when he was first sent to the Western Front, and November 1918, when he was killed in action, use a variety of poetic techniques to allow the reader to empathise with his world, situation, emotions and thoughts. 'Dulce et Decorum est' is a poem written through Owen’s eyes, based on his own experiences and views of sheer horror of war. Owen mounts a powerful argument against the complacency of those who believe the war to be a glorious patriotic duty and that dying for your country was noble and heroic....   [tags: War Poet, Poetic Analysis]

Poetic and Pictorial Considerations for the Understanding of Frost's Birches

- The first word that may appear into a reader's mind when dealing with Robert Frost's "Birches" is remembrance. Every picture in the poem supports the word: the child playing with the Birch, the swinging movements that goes back and forward, the snow painting the trees deeply white. "Birches" is an extremely pictorial poem. Its images are of a profound emotion. There is a fact that can not be omitted: the year 1914, time in which the poem was written; World War I. Though that fact won't be taken much into consideration, so as to make the interpretation in a more personal approach, it is noticeable that by not leaving that year aside, the poem grows beautifully stronger; not only because the...   [tags: Poetry]

Vladimir Nabokov 's The Gift Deviates From Standard Literature

- Rich in its complexity, Vladimir Nabokov’s The Gift deviates from standard literature in its lack of a standard narrative form. The Gift is structured in five chapters that vary significantly in tone, voice, pacing and narrative purpose; although Fyodor can be considered the main protagonist, the stylistic changes, shifting perspectives and "presentation of time" (Dolinin 7) within each chapter suggests that Fyodor 's voice cannot reliably be considered as the voice of the narrator. This is further complicated by Fyodor 's decision to write a novel at the end of Chapter 5, which will presumably be The Gift; by creating a scenario where the main protagonist declares his next work will be the...   [tags: Narrative, Fiction, Vladimir Nabokov]

However, each poet manipulates these techniques to represent their monsters as very different beasts.

- Scotland, or “the land of Scots”, is home to many famous people and poets, including Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, the author of the notorious Sherlock Holmes novels. Besides the novels, the poetry published is very influential and astute. “The River of Life”, by Thomas Campbell, is one such example. This poem follows an ABABCDCDEFEFGHGHBIJIGIGI rhythm scheme for the entire poem. The pattern does change near the end, however. “The River of Life” is a poem describing mainly life and time. It describes the stages of life, of childhood, of middle age, of oldness, all thanks due to the slow yet quick passage of time....   [tags: Poetic Analysis]

`` Out, Out `` And `` Disabled `` By Robert Frost

- The authors of “Out,Out ” and “Disabled” present the idea that life is hard and unfair by portraying the horrible way in which two different boys have undergone a life changing event. Both protagonists are young, naive boys who’s lives have been ruined by war (in Disabled) or a saw (in Out,Out). Firstly, the theme in both poems is about being exploited and then being left alone to die. In “Out,Out ” “since they / Were not the one dead , turned to their affairs” after he had passed away by working hard for them shows this clearly, making the reader sympathise a lot with how manipulated he was....   [tags: Poetry, Iambic pentameter, Iamb, Meter]

Analysis Of Gerard Hopkins 's God 's Grandeur

- After reading and deeply analyzing Gerard Hopkins’s “God’s Grandeur,” I had a new clarification of God’s unconditional love for the human race. The components of this piece of literature exemplify the roles, both good and bad, that we play in our world; but more importantly, the role that we play in God’s eyes. I realized that the theme of this poem is to proclaim the splendor of our king’s undeserving love and his endowment through the symbolism, diction, and structure displayed in the Italian Petarchan sonnet....   [tags: Poetry, Meter, Sonnet, Iambic pentameter]

Analysis Of The Poem ' An Invite

- John Clare’s “An Invite to Eternity” is a poem that at first glance seems happy and inviting but once examined, is actually quite depressing and aloof. Although it appears to be a direct address to an anonymous “maiden,” in reality the poem is much more complex. Clare offers his “sweet maid” a less than appealing future life, presenting her with an “eternity” filled with harsh landscapes and loneliness. Most readers’ first impression when they think of eternity is almost dream-like or heavenly. However, Clare’s vision of eternity is dark and mysterious and uninviting....   [tags: Poetry, Stanza, Meter, Present tense]

The Dead Speak By Thomas Hardy

- The Dead Speak Introduction: Poems in general are meant to stimulate the senses of the mind, creating images and symbols that conjugate to help understand the meaning of the poem. Many of those poems can range from generic to unique, each with an atmosphere that varies from comical to very serious. “Channel Firing”, written by Thomas Hardy in 1914, several months before WWI occurred, is a unique type of poem. The overall ambience within the poem is quite serious, although it has a hint of humour, as it uses dialogue amongst the dead to describe war and how it disturbs their sleep....   [tags: Poetry, Syllable, Rhyme, Stanza]

Both poems have a lot of similarities’; they are both about how in this point in history, London is on its lowest, the both authors are explaining how they don’t see London going nowhere and just staying the way it is.

Epic of Beowulf Essay - Prosody of Beowulf

- Prosody of Beowulf          The prosody of Beowulf is the art of Old English versification, made to be chanted orally, not read silently. Therefore it uses alliteration and accent to achieve the poetic effect which Modern English poetry achieves through the use of poetic feet, each having the same number of syllables and the same pattern of accent (Wilkie 1271). Theory on the prosody of Beowulf is evolving.   In the manuscript version of the poem, alliteration is employed in almost every line (or two half-lines); in most modern translations of the poem this is not so....   [tags: Epic Beowulf essays]

William Shakespeare 's Sonnet 130

- Shakespeare’s sonnet 130 is a sonnet much different than the normal love sonnets of that time. A well-known re-occurring them in Shakespeare’s sonnets is love. Shakespeare’s sonnet 130 can be interpreted many different ways. Sonnet 130 describes what love is to Shakespeare by making the poem a joke in order to mock other poets. In sonnet 130, Shakespeare spoke of a courtly love. Shakespeare goes against the usual style of courtly love writing in this sonnet. “In comparison to Petrarch’s Sonnet 90 and Shakespeare’s own Sonnets 18 and 20, Sonnet 130 is a parody of courtly love, favoring a pastoral love that is austere in its declaration, yet deep-rooted in sincerity” (Dr....   [tags: Sonnet, Poetry, Iambic pentameter, Meter]

The Sonnet, By Billy Collins

- In “Sonnet,” Billy Collins satirizes the classical sonnet’s volume to illustrate love in only “…fourteen lines…” (1). Collins’s poem subsists as a “Sonnet,” though there exists many differences in it countering the customarily conventional structure of a sonnet. Like Collins’s “Sonnet,” Shakespeare’s “Sonnet 130” also faces incongruities from the classic sonnet form as he satirizes the concept of ideal beauty that was largely a convention of writings and art during the Elizabethan era. Although these poem venture through different techniques to appear individually different from the classic sonnet, the theme of love makes the poems analogous....   [tags: Poetry, Sonnet, Iambic pentameter, Meter]

What is Typical of Lyrical Ballads

- What is Typical of Lyrical Ballads The group title of the set of poems written by Wordsworth and Coleridge presents an interesting starting point of analysis. The phrase ‘Lyrical Ballads’ is a paradox as the genres of ‘lyrics’ and ‘ballads’ can be defined as in opposition to each other. A ‘lyric’ is ‘a poem about feeling… addressed to the reader in a manner of private and intimate conversation’. A ‘ballad’ is ‘a narrative poem from an anonymous point of view, often relating to characters from public or historical events, such as war.’ Therefore the two genres are combined under the title ‘Lyrical Ballads’, signifying an unexpected and unusual style from Wordsworth and Coleridge....   [tags: Wordsworth Coleridge Poems Poetry Essays]

Oedipus is often portrayed as the perfect example of what a tragedy should be in terms of Aristotle’s Poetics. Reason being that Oedipus seems to include correctly all of the concepts that Aristotle describes as inherent to dramatic tragedy. These elements include: the importance of plot, reversal and recognition, unity of time, the cathartic purging and evocation of pity and fear, the presence of a fatal flaw in the “hero”, and the use of law of probability....   [tags: Oedipus Rex]
