  • Sexual Images In The Poem
    509 words

Through structure and language Yeats is able to paint a powerful sexual image to his readers without directly giving the meaning of the poem. "Leda and the Swan" is a violent, sexually explicit poem with its plain diction, rhythm...
  • Poem Chicago By Carl Sandburg

    Poetry is the time old form of expression that allows one to explicate him or herself using very little words.

  • Last Stanza Of The Poem
    1,252 words
    The poetry of the Imagists is short, simple, and quite literal in its meaning in order to create a vivid picture in the reader's mind. When they describe an object, it means just what they say. A tree is a tree, a flower is a flower, and a bird is a bird. Imagists have little use for abstract words or ideas, and tend to shy away from them as much as possible. Emily Dickinson doesn't fall under the same category as the Imagists, as she doesn't use the same techniques as the Imagists. Dickinson's ...

  • Harper's Use Of The Metaphor
    556 words
    I have selected the poem titled "The Waterbowl" by Michael S. Harper from his collection Dear John, Dear Coltrane. Part of the reason why I have selected this poem is for its simplicity. Simplicity is a quality that I truly value in poem. I feel that poetry is left much more to the unsaid and the senses which the words of the poem trigger. In "The Waterbowl", the simplicity of the poem can be seen through the elementary vocabulary used in each short line. The line breaks also add on to the whole...

    Blackberrying by Sylvia Plath Within the poem "Blackberrying" by Sylvia Plath, she positions herself as the lonely walker and speaker, self-consciously communicating with and reacting to nature yet all the while assuming that at her worst this may cause her immediate surroundings to justifiably consume her (by the overwhelming sea) and that at best her surroundings are maliciously indifferent. The theme of "Blackberrying", on the surface at least, is of "place". Aside from this theme of "place" ...

Although my reaction hasn't changed much through numerous readings, my emotional reaction becomes more intense with each reading. This poem makes me feel like I am right there watching the soldier w...
