  • Form Prufrock
    574 words
    This poem, the earliest of Eliot's major works, was completed in 1910 or 1911 but not published until 1915. It is an examination of the tortured psyche of the prototypical modern man -- overeducated, eloquent, neurotic, and emotionally stilted. Prufrock, the poem's speaker, seems to be addressing a potential lover, with whom he would like to 'force the moment to its crisis' by somehow consummating their relationship.

  • Group Of Frost's Poems
    616 words
    To refer to a group of Frost's poems as 'early' is perhaps problematic: One is tempted to think of the term as relative given that Frost's first book of poetry appeared when he was already 39. Moreover, Frost's pattern of withholding poems from publication for long periods of time makes dating his work difficult. Many of the poems of the first book, A Boy's Will, were, in fact, written long before -- a few more than a decade earlier. Likewise, Frost's later books contain poems almost certainly w...

    Preface from Lowell's Men, Women, and Ghosts (New York: Macmillan Company, 1917) vii-xii. This is a book of stories. For that reason I have excluded all purely lyrical poems. But the word "stories" has been stretched to its fullest application. It includes both narrative poems, properly so called tales divided into scenes; and a few pieces of less obvious story telling import in which one might say that the dramatis personae are air, clouds, trees, houses, streets, and such like things. It has l...
  • Metaphor For Childhood
    330 words
    In the poem "Blackberry-Picking" by Seamus Heaney, the author uses powerful metaphors, strong diction, descriptive imagery, and an organized form to compare picking blackberries to holding on to your childhood. Metaphors are the strongest tool the author uses to convey his deeper understanding of the experience of picking blackberries. The blackberries in themselves are a metaphor for childhood.
