... for the mind. In stanza two, the poet continues the figure of the funeral. Now, with the mourners seated and the service beginning, a drumming noise associated with the service numbs her mind. The image of the seated mourners suggest that some order has been restored. However, the mind is again under attack, and the beating drum symbolizes the waves of feeling which numb the mind. In the third stanza, the poet states that she hears the mourners lift the coffin. Again, they move slowly across her soul with feet which seem encased in lead. Am intensification of attack on the mind by bringing together im ...

... Art" is simple, yet many literary devices are used. The last line repeated, to the effect of "The art of losing isn't hard to master" suggests that the speaker is trying to convince herself that losing things is not hard and she should not worry. Also, the speaker uses hyperboles when describing in the fifth tercet that she lost "two cities...some realms I owned."

Finally, the statement in the final quatrain "Even losing you" begins the irony in that stanza. The speaker remarks that losing this pe ...

... is demonstrated where the reader is provided with an image as well as language. Poetry expresses thoughts and opinions to the degree where the reader is left to incorporate personal meanings in order to make sense of the obscurity found in most poems. By describing the creation of a picture or ornamental love-knot, the poet is able to limit the multitudinous meanings found by the reader, allowing the poet to further implicate his or her beliefs and situations. Thus, the use of physical artifacts provides a freedom to express that which the characters in each poem lacks in their lives. Though unable to gras ...

... Victorian classification that women should sit quietly and ingest her husbands opinions. This might also symbolize the feministic movements of the early sixties. Hecht's view might have been that women could have equality to men, but its not important enough to let them talk about it. His display of faithfulness in the women's unfaithfulness is also a reaction to the Victorian idea that the wife should be there for her husband. It could also be a scary reality in Hecht's mind that times were changing and women wouuld not be at every beaconing call of their husband. Hecht reinforces his Ideas of change by taking Arn ...

... that. I just wanted to let some air in. I said, "Look hon, now we can see the stars." He brushed off the debris and put me to bed. He won't sleep tonight. His thoughts stay up with the moon trying to exercise the demons in his mind. Too intelligent, too spiritual for his own peace. A shaman, unstuck in time. A stroke of genius and a slap in the face of this world. Always restless, searching for answers. Impulsive and inspired, writing down his thoughts. Funny stories about Elvis and his followers, the Elvi, or dirty poetry. Painting his visions on sheets that hang from the eaves or painting me with psy ...

... how extremely great the fulfillment exists, the causes of this injustice to Coleridge the Poet are the splendor of the three poems of his which everybody knows and admires, and also the habit of regarding him as a mere satellite of Wordsworth, or at least as Wordsworth's weaker brother. These are his Poems of Friendship. They cannot be even vaguely understood unless the reader knows what persons Coleridge has in mind. They are, for the most part, poems in which reference is made with fine particularity to certain places. They were composed as the expression of feelings which were occasioned by quite definite even ...

[ view this term paper ]Words: 578 | Pages: 3

... Hrothgar's kingdom respected this king, and they all accepted his “very word far and wide as a command.” The people also give him great titles such as the “Lord of the Mighty Danes,” “ guardian of the Scyldings,” and “protector of warriors.” Much of these people's respect come in response to Hrothgar's generosity to everyone. This generosity can be seen towards Beowulf, when the king gives his thanks for the heroic deeds of the warrior. Hrothgar rewards Beowulf with priceless material as he says to the warrior, “You shall lack no earthly riches I can offer you.” The people of the land also t ...

... for evermore" to show Lenore is dead and gone. His use of italics on the word herealso shows through in this instance.As the rapping continues, the fear builds inside of the man. The natural reaction for anyone in this situation is to convince yourself there isn't anything there. That is exactly what he did. He says it is a late night visitor and nothing more. Then he begins to explain out loud that he was napping, and the visitor came rapping and woke him up. He opens the door to look at who or what is there, but all he sees is the darkness of the night. At that point the man's mind went wild, wondering, feari ...

... they are poor. Their existence is accompanied not by freinds or relatives--children or grandchildren aare not mentioned--but by memories and a few possessions(9-11). They are "Mostly Good" (5) , words Brooks capitilizes at the end of a line, perhaps to stress the old people's adherence to traditional values as well as their lack of saintliness. They are unexceptionl, whatever message they have for readers. The isolated routine of the couple's life is something Brooks draws attention to with a separate stanza: Two who are Mostly Good. Two who have lived their day, But keep on putting on their clothes ...
