The Powerful Use of Imagery and Metaphor in a Noiseless Patient Spider by Walt Whitman

- The heart of poetry is in its imagery, which leads the reader to perceive all of the senses the poet was feeling – the sights, sounds, scents, touches. A poet uses imagery to evoke these emotions in the reader to paint a mental picture – to “show” the reader the experience that inspired the poet, not just “tell” the story. In “A Noiseless Patient Spider,” Walt Whitman’s use of metaphor and powerful imagery emphasizes the speaker’s own search for soulful connectedness to the world. As written in the second stanza at line six “And you, O my soul where you stand, / Surrounded, detached, in measureless oceans of space, /Ceaselessly musing, venturing, throwing, seeking the spheres to connect...   [tags: imagery, senses, metaphor]

This said, we see that both these novels show their characters with human traits, however they are all confined to their physical limitations as animals....   [tags: essays research papers]
