It wasn’t until I was voted to specialize in the oral competitions, when I realized that I was as good as my coaches said I was.

John Keats' Ode to Nightingale and Negative Capability Are Poems of Feeling

- In a letter written to Richard Woodhouse on October 27, 1818, John Keats addresses the idea of his poetic identity. According to Keats, “A poet is the most unpoetical of anything in existence; he has no identity…creatures of impulse are poetical and have about them an unchangeable attribute-the poet has none; …he is certainly the most unpoetical of all God’s Creatures” (Keats 1818). Therefore, Keats views himself as a poet with no self, writing not from his own identity. In his mind: “the poetical Character itself, (I mean that sort which, if I am anything, I am a Member; that sort distinguished from the wordsworthian or egotistical sublime; which is a thing per se and stands alone)...   [tags: poet, stanza, conflict]

The Rhyme Scheme Of Frost 's The Road Not Taken

- Introduction The rhyme scheme of Frost’s ‘The Road Not Taken’ negates the idea of the ‘choice’ of the author in the poem, insofar as each quintain is dominated by three lines of an initial rhyme in iambic tetrameter and only two of the second, the effect of this is to show the imbalance of the choice that the author is making and so helps to tell the story. However, it could be argued that the ending rhyme being the second rhyme suggests that the narrator is unwilling to fully let go of the less dominant choice, it is this human reluctance that Frost manages to capture within his poem, ‘And sorry I could not Travel Both’ (2), showing that the narrator had hesitations about the future and th...   [tags: Poetry, Stanza, Narrative, Rhyme]
