    In the poem 'The Last Day of the Year,' ; Annette Von Droste-H"hulshoff uses imagery and references to God to express the coming of the end of the year.

  • Duncan Campbell Scotts Poem
    500 words
    "Then there was a silence born deeper than silence, then she had rest". Those are the closing lines of "The Forsaker" by Duncan Campbell Scott. A poem that reads very simply actually brings a very important message for those who are able to look for it. "The Forsaker" is about how new generations are changing their culture and losing touch with their roots. The Chippewa woman, her son, and their society demonstrate this, past and present. The Chippewa woman represents culture and heritage. The p...

    1,018 words
    Jorge Graham's invention of her distinct literary style makes it possible to assume the complicated glamour of her poems is an examination of a deeper importance.

This quest for truth is rooted in her theme of desire. The world through her eyes is rendered into her poems of desi...
  • Rhythm Of The Poem Breaks
    424 words
    The poem "A Bird Came Down the Walk' reminds us of a nursery rhyme because of its rhyme scheme and rhythm. The poem starts with "A bird came down the walk. He did not know I saw. He bit the angleworm in halves and ate the fellow raw. ' The rhythm makes the poem very easy to read. The sentence or clause always ends in the end of the line with a punctuation sign and never get carried over to the next one, so that the poem is very easy to follow. With the simplicity of the plot and a sense of humor...
