Emily Dickinson Poetry Quot Dickinson
4,482 wordsYVOR WINTERS The problem of judging [Emily Dickinson's] better poems is much of the time a subtle one. Her meter, at its worst that is, most of the time a kind of stiff sing-song; her diction, at its worst, is a kind of poetic nursery jargon; and there is a remarkable continuity of manner, of a kind nearly indescribable, between her worst and her best poems. [" I like to see it lap the Miles" ] will illustrate the defects in perfection... / 283 / The poem is abominable; and the quality...

T S Eliot Quot Quot
4,047 wordsThe On " Gerontion" Grover Smith The practice of allusion, justified in " Burbank" by the need to characterize the tourist, performs in " Gerontion" the function of condensing into decent compass a whole panorama of the past. If any notion remained that in the poems of 1919 Eliot was sentimentally contrasting a resplendent past with a dismal present, " Gerontion" should have helped to dispel it. What are contrasted in this poem are the secular history of E...

Quot Quot Depression Era
1,487 wordsNancy Berke Much proletarian literature of the 1930 s concerned itself with the pathetic plights of working men. Depression-era historical documentation and popular culture are filled with familiar images of male figures standing on bread lines, slouching over watery soup in church basements, flagging down rides on desolate highways, or fighting placement or scabs during strikes. While Genevieve Taggard's proletarian collection Calling Western Union contains poems that honor working men and thei...

2,767 wordsMargaret Dickie " The Arrival of the Bee Box" is more positive about this " clean wood box" that would be a coffin except for the " din" within, " the swarm feeling. " The owner wonders what would happen if she freed the bees; " I am no source of honey/ So why should they turn on me? " She resolves to set them free tomorrow.

William Carlos Williams Quot Quot
6,249 wordsEXPLANATION: " The Red Wheelbarrow" Line The opening lines set the tone for the rest of the poem. Since the poem is composed of one sentence broken up at various intervals, it is truthful to say that " so much depends upon" each line of the poem. This is so because the form of the poem is also its meaning. This may seem confusing, but by the end of the poem the image of the wheelbarrow is seen as the actual poem, as in a painting when one sees an image of an apple, the apple ...

3,080 wordsPreface from Lowells Men, Women, and Ghosts (New York: Macmillan Company, 1917) vii-xii. This is a book of stories. For that reason I have excluded all purely lyrical poems. But the word " stories" has been stretched to its fullest application. It includes both narrative poems, properly so called tales divided into scenes; and a few pieces of less obvious story telling import in which one might say that the dramatis personae are air, clouds, trees, houses, streets, and such like things...
