Poetry Essay Writing Help

Words: 630 / Pages: 3

.... Shelley's "",there are two speakers; the first speaker introduced the poem for the first line and then the second speaker carries the poem to realization. It is ironic that the words inscribed on the pedestal "Look on my works. . . and despair!" reflect the evidence of the next line, "Nothing beside remains," that is, there is nothing left of the reign of the greatest king on earth.One immediate image is found in the second line, "trunkless legs.". One good comparison may be when the author equates the passions of the statue's frown, sneer, and wrinkled lip to the "lifeless things" remaining in the "desart." Another is when Shelley compares the .....

The Theme Of Death In Poems
Words: 817 / Pages: 3

.... down, and the carriage driver past the sun, but she realizes they weren't passing the sun, it was passing them; time was passing by, past her life. Her life has now past her by, and she is arriving at her final destination, which was her grave, yet she describes it as her house. In the end she is looking back, and sees how centuries have passed, yet she isn't passing by anymore, and to her this hundred years seems as no time at all. Finally she accepts her death, and is able to pass into eternity. To her death wasn't harsh like some see it, but a kindly, gentle soul, taking her for a carriage ride to her final home. A child experiences death mu .....

Poet's Use Of Mockery As Diction In Poem
Words: 382 / Pages: 2

.... is complete. The poet's diction choice, "Reading the Roll of Honor. `Poor young chap, ' I'd say - ` I used to know his father well; Yes, we've lost heavily in this last scrap.' " of casual language attempts to make the war seem carefree and nonchalant. The word "chap" conveys an casual attitude towards the heroes as people. It seems to elevate the status of the majors to a false superior position. "Scrap" makes it seems as if the soldier's death occurred on a playground, not a battlefield. It seems to trivialize war in general. "And when the war is done and the youth stone dead, I'd toddle safely home and die - in bed." .....

An Analysis Of "To A Friend Whose Work Has Come To Triumph"
Words: 424 / Pages: 2

.... poet to be able to catch the allusion to Yeats' poem. I believe she wanted her friend to know that what she did was the right thing. Perhaps she compared her friend to Yeats' friend. Sexton wrote "Think of the difference it made!" referring to Icarus' flight. She might have wanted her friend to realize a difference her defying her father made. The final line of the poem has a comparably different tone than the first 13 lines. The last line, "See him acclaiming the sun and come plunging down while his sensible daddy goes straight into town.", seems more mocking of Daedalus' flight. It seems that Sexton feels that Daedalus' flight was a wasted .....

Nature In Frost's Poems
Words: 671 / Pages: 3

.... to make and what one should I take. "Frost is sorry, but he can't travel both." He looks down the path, but can't see because of the undergrowth in the woods. Frost is saying that because the paths are so long he can't tell where they will end (Frost 84). "He looks down the other to be fair." "Frost thinks he would heave a better claim." Frost thinks he would do better if he took the one less traveled. "The paths are wanted wear." He is saying no matter what which one, he goes he will have to take a path (Frost 84). I should say this doubtfully because I know where I am going. "Two roads diverged in a wood, and I-I took the one less travel .....

Andrea Del Sarto: A Statement Worthy Of Examination
Words: 1814 / Pages: 7

.... the struggles of most poets and writers we’ve read this past semester, in particular Byron, Shelley and Hardy. Before the lines can be used to generalize a broad range of artists, first the lines must be thoroughly understood. Several themes can be inferred from these relatively simple lines. They seem straightforward enough, yet contain deeper, more specific meaning. First of course, the pessimistic mood of the statement must be identified. For to understand the implications of the quote, the pessimism needs to be understood. Browning is writing from the point of view of del Sarto, a severely depressed painter, yet comments like these co .....

Poem "Lucifer In The Starlight": New Meanings And Ideas
Words: 780 / Pages: 3

.... as "in starlight", so this means he has to rise to a place where the stars are visible, not the fires of hell. This rising from the underworld is summed up in the first line. It is later explained that he is doing so because he is tired of his ‘dark dominion." Ironically, the first line refers to Lucifer honorably, as a "Prince", while in the second line he is tagged as a fiend. This leaves the reader feeling perplexed, yet still thinking of Lucifer as the enemy. At first it may seem as Lucifer has risen to the Earth, but it is further clarified that he has elevated himself above the "rolling ball". However, god imagined the world as planar, with .....

Robert Frost Used Many Elements Of Nature To Show Fear And Uncertainty
Words: 1118 / Pages: 5

.... I suddenly heard – all I needed to hear: It lasted me many and many a year. The sound was behind me instead of before, A sleepy sound, but mocking half, As of one who utterly couldn’t care. The Demon arose from his wallow to laugh, Brushing the dirt from his eyes as he went; And well I knew what the Demon meant. “He represented himself as having conducted a search for the modern Demiurge named Evolution in hope of learning the secrets of life, but when finally found him all he was rewarded was indifference, atheism, and laughter” (Thompson 327). The uncertainty lies in the Demiurge’s answer of indifference and atheism. This answe .....

Robert Frost's Use Of Nature In His Poetry
Words: 423 / Pages: 2

.... is shown when he expresses that he is "sorry. . . [he] could not travel both" (line 2). He also shows his "hesitancy of the decision" (Barry 13) when it is stated "Though as for that, the passing there / Had worn them really about the same" (line 9-10). It seems as if he is expressing an "inability to turn his back completely on any possibility" (Barry 13) of returning when the poems reads "Oh, I kept the first for another day!" (line 13). He also knew that the possibilities of him actually returning to ever walk the path not chosen were very slim. He made a decision and "took the other" (line 6) path. It is obvious that these two roads in the .....
