Yet, Sandburg was able to write about those times in a way that an average high school studen...
  • Sudden Change In Mood In The Poem

    DOVER BEACH Dover Beach is a very 'mood' evoking poem. We are first met with an appreciation for the sea and different emotions that is draws to the observer.

  • Hidden Meaning Of Shelley's Poem
    261 words
    Anyone who has been entranced by a Skylark in the summer sky will appreciate this poem. In fact, anyone that appreciates poetry will like it, however, I didn't like or appreciate this poem simply because I don't much care for this style of poetry and I especially don't care for picking apart hidden meanings in poems. This poem is obviously about a skylark, which I personally think is a really retarded thing to write a poem about. Anyhow, the skylark was Shelley's inspiration for writing this poe...
  • End Of The Poem The Sea
    545 words

He also uses the change in attitude from the first stanza to the last to emphasize his message. The poem starts with the normal image one would expect of a beach and a peaceful moonlit night, but quickly m...

'Beach Burial' by Kenneth Slessor, 'Homecoming' by Bruce Dawe and 'Letter XV' by...

    The passionate, involved, intellectually wide-ranging poems of this period have delighted, puzzled and alienated readers, both in their own times and later.
