  • Perfect Example For The Sound Of Sense
    805 words
    Alden Anderson English 102 Summer '05 2: 15 Frost's Sense Robert Frost has a certain theory. That a sentence has an overall sound and that word may be taken out and the sound analyzed. The theory is Frost's "Sound of Sense". Or I like to say, that you may sense the sound of a sentence, with a simple little trick. Put your hand over your mouth and speak the sentence, pay attention to the muffled sound instead of the words being spoken. That would be the sound of sense. This paper is an introducti...
  • Sound Patterns Of Hughes The Weary Blues
    1,522 words
    Hughes' 'Blues' Jazz music is often associated with long, lazy melodies and ornate rhythmical patterns. The Blues, a type of jazz, also follows this similar style. Langston Hughes' poem, 'The Weary Blues,' is no exception. The sound qualities that make up Hughes' work are intricate, yet quite apparent. Hughes' use of consonance, assonance, onomatopoeia, and rhyme in 'The Weary Blues' gives the poem a deep feeling of sorrow while, at the same time, allows the reader to feel as if he or she is act...
  • Brooks Poem The Rhyme Scheme
    1,132 words
    Sound in Poetry Poems usually begin with words or phrase which appeal more because of their sound than their meaning, and the movement and phrasing of a poem. Every poem has a texture of sound, which is at least as important as the meaning behind the poem. Rhythm, being the regular recurrence of sound, is at the heart of all natural phenomena: the beating of a heart, the lapping of waves against the shore, the croaking of frogs on a summer's night, the whisper of wheat swaying in the wind. Rhyth...

  • Simon's The Sound Of Silence A Poem
    1,205 words
    Paul Simon's The Sound of Silence A poem, like all other works of art, may appear as an inter-subjective truth, an intricate thread of images, a surreal yet realistic expression, and as a "creative fact" according to Virginia Woolf. In canon literature, a good poem is usually that which has fine structure, imagery, meaning and relevance; an art, which has sprung out not only of personal necessities but out of socio-cultural quagmires. Paul Simon's The Sound of Silence transcends the mediocre. It...

  • Very First Words Of The Poem
    866 words
    A Reading of "Those Winter Sundays " In Robert Hayden's poem "Those Winter Sundays" a relationship between the speaker and the speaker's father is expressed in short but descriptive detail, revealing a kind of love that had gone unnoticed for so long. Throughout the poem, Hayden's use of connotative diction keeps the poem short and sweet yet packed with significant meaning. The evocative sound patterns play just as great a role setting the harsh and reflective tone of the poem. Together, these d...
  • Chauvinistic Point Of View
    438 words
    Man-Sized Job was written by Sharlot Hall (1870-1943). It is a poem that defines a womans work from a mans point of view. Poems like this were uncommon in the late 1800's early 1900's, especially if women wrote them. The two aspects of this poem that I would like to analyze are the vocabulary used and the male chauvinistic point-of-view. If it werent for these two exaggerated aspects, the poem would not have as strong of a meaning. The vocabulary used in this poem is far form proper. It is an ex...

    573 words
    An appreciation of "To Autumn" by John Keats "To Autumn", a vivid and sensuous description of the scenery John Keats encountered and marvelled at in the midst of his Sunday constitutional is something to be marvelled at itself. Not only is his choice of language effective in conveying this idyllic image to the reader, but its tone is incredibly optimistic. This might strike some as strange, considering this poem was penned by a terminally ill author. The poem's nature is diametrically opposed to...

The theme of the story has taken two colors green and gold, green being when a person is young and gold being when a person is old. However, most people would just read half of the paper and say that the poem was about childhood and the people who read the poem thoroughly would argue that it was also about dying.
