Bereft By Robert Frost A Stylistic Analysis

Bereft By Robert Frost A Stylistic Analysis

Robert Frost, an American poet has a vast compilation of famous poems to his credit and ‘Bereft’ is one of those collections.

Poet feels secluded in his life but he has a enormous faith in God. The close noticeably states that the poet is all by

Inscribed on blank page before copy statement, “To Cliff and Gladys, who have already made it so much theirs – and made me so much theirs, Robert, January 26 1950, Chapel Hill.” Back endpaper has a note, “This is a copy of the 1949 Limited Edition of Complete Poems of R.F., 1949, a copy given to us by Mr. Frost. On one of his visits to C.H. in the early fifties, and as always a guest in our home, I asked him if he would give his ratings of some of the poems. He readily assented. He went, not systematically, but skippingly down the Table of Contents. In addition to the ratings, he made comments on some of the poems, which I copied down in the margins. Unhappily, as we were getting into A Further Range, we were interrupted by someone coming to the door (a man from Porlock [sp]) and we did not get back to it. Clifford Lyons.” Condition: Good. Faint black lines on back cover. A small piece missing from title-page. Heavily annotated Table of Contents, and other annotations throughout (see Lyons’ note).

A SOCIOLOGICAL STUDY OF SOME SELECTED POEMS BY HATIM ALTAI

A SOCIOLOGICAL STUDY OF SOME SELECTED POEMS BY HATIM ALTAI

These are the founding fathers of sociology, however, a great deal of modern thinkers and sociologists also contribute significantly to expound the methodology, nature and scope of sociology. In addition to these founders and thinkers, many factors have a tremendous influence on the progress of sociology as an independent and significant branch of human science. These influencing factors are the French Revolution, the Industrial Revolution and the intellectual ideologies such as socialism, individualism, humanitarianism, positivism, colonialism, and the mushroom growth and developments in modern natural sciences. Notwithstanding, the credit for founding and systematizing sociology as an independent scientific discipline indisputably goes to August Comte, Herbert Spencer, Karl Marx, Emile Durkheim and Max Weber who were the pioneers in their leading role in establishing sociology a scientific discipline of social science. Put in a historical perspective, one can say that the first one who attempted to study sociology as an approach to analyzing literature in a scientific and systematic way was H. A. Taine. His work entitled History of English Literature (1886) constituted a turning point in the history of the sociology of literature. Many critics who significantly contributed to the progressive wheel of the sociology of literature came later such as Karl Marx and Frederic Engels who gave it a new turn. However, the sociology of literature occupied an important place among critical theories only in the late twentieth century at the hands of such prolific social critics and thinkers like Lucien Goldman, Leo Lowenthal, Robert Escarpit, Alan Swingewood, Diana Laurenson and John Hall. To particularize, Rene Wellek, Austin Warren, Swingewood and Diana Laurenson profoundly carried out their studies on the sociology of literature.

Grice’s Conversational Implicature: A Pragmatics Analysis of  Selected Poems of Audre Lorde

Grice’s Conversational Implicature: A Pragmatics Analysis of Selected Poems of Audre Lorde

Florence Indede (2009) in her article entitled “The Prag- matics of Kiswahili Literary Political Discourse” attempt a pragmatics analysis of Kiswahili literary political discourse using Grice’s Cooperative Principle. She bases her analysis on the following poetic texts: Chembe cha Moyo by Alamin Mazrui, Sautiya Dhiki by Abdilatif Abdala and Jiho la Ndani by Said Ahmed Mohamed. She maintains that her article em- ploys the Cooperative Principle developed by Grice whose Conversational Implicature is central to her discussion. She argues that the interpretation of meaning requires high lev- el of application of the Cooperative Principle by both the reader and the author. Indede avers that the poetic dialog- ic understanding of the author’s theme or message involves recognizing his rationale for using an utterance in context. Indede’s analysis, as in Rochmawati’s, provides a robust pragmatics analysis of selected Kiswahili political discourse poetry, but once again no reference to diaspora poetry in general nor to Audre Lorde’s poetry in particular. Hence, there is an existing lacuna that my study will address.

Resuscitating the Earth: A Linguistic Analysis of Selected Poems in Niyi Osundare’s The Eye of the Earth

Resuscitating the Earth: A Linguistic Analysis of Selected Poems in Niyi Osundare’s The Eye of the Earth

From Table 5 and Figure 5 above, personification is highly used in ‘Let Earth’s Pain Be Soothed’. Even the title is personified. This might be due to the greater number of lines of the poems. The usage of all other figures of speech is low in two of the poems: First Rain and Meet me at Okeruku. Hyperbole, Euphemism and onomatopoeia are not used in the ‘First Rain’ at all while paradox is not used at all in ‘Let Earth’s Pain Be Soothed’. In the use of ‘simile’, there is uniformity in two of the poems even though their number of lines varies. In the use of alliteration and paradox, ‘First Rain’ which has fewer numbers of lines has the higher usage of the two figures of speech. The usage of figures of speech reveals that the beauty of any poem lies in the choice of words and the figures of speech used by the poet. The poet uses run-on lines in the two poems and this brings out the coherence and sonorous effects found in the poems. 7. Conclusion

Greening of Resistance in Arabic Poetry: An Ecocritical Interpretation of Selected Arabic Poems

Greening of Resistance in Arabic Poetry: An Ecocritical Interpretation of Selected Arabic Poems

Unlike the traditional Arab poets who used to apply the natural images and the images of animals to depict glowing pictures of the setting of the poems or as symbols for conveying certain ideas of their own, Zayyad appropriates animals and the natural world such as elephants, fish, crocodiles, the sun, the galaxy and the wind in a situation of resistance which is very crucial in the human world. Albeit the tone of the poem seems to be quite political as it involves themes of resistance, destruction and suffering, the use of the elements of nature and animals make it a vivid engagement for the greening of resistance. The poet, exceptionally, draws a parallel between the strength of animals in the surrounding world for any imposed deed and the steadiness of humans in their resistance against the occupation of their land. The impossibility of imposing power on animals and natural world, like passing an elephant through the needle’s eye, putting out the sun, capturing the wind and making a crocodile speaks out, has been transcended into human world to illuminate the steadiness of the Palestinian resistance. The transmission of the readers from the world of animals and nature into the human world lends the poem to ecocritical implications. Throughout Zayyad’s poem, it seems that the poet means to emphasise that the human world is in tune with the natural world in Palestine. However, it seems to be less concerned with the organic interconnectedness of Darwish’s poems than it is with conveying the sense of stability, strength and steadiness of resistance to the occupation by the whole biotic community of Palestine expressed through the images of the powerful animals and elements of the surrounding world such as the elephant, the galaxy, the wind, the sun and the crocodile.

Poems for the dance

Poems for the dance

Poems  for  the  Dance  invites  us  to  investigate  how  this  language  moves  us,  how  we  dance   in   words.   Thurston   threads   pathways   between   parts   of   the   self   that   may   not   yet   have   realised  their  silence.  The  breaks  in  Momentum  incite  you  to  jump,  break,  stop,  stumble,   stutter,   gasp.   This   stop-­‐start   rhythm   reawakens   you   to   your   moving   language   self   in   a   way   that   might   feel   uncomfortable   or   destabilising.   By   contrast,   the   line   breaks   in   extracts   from   Reverses   Heart’s   Reassembly   (2014)   offer   us   space   to   pause   and   savour   a   series   of   micro-­‐moments;   an   assembly   of   which   presents   a   shadow   outline   of   the   scaffolding   from   which   ‘Dancing   the   Five   Rhythms’   may   have   grown.   Excerpts   from   Internal   Rhyme   offer   windowed   opacity.   These   quadrilling   quatrains   explore   a   tension   between   absence   and   presence   in   the   breaks   and   continuity   of   syntax   as   words   are   arranged  across  blank  space.  The  arrangement  of  these  texts  tests  the  tension  between   words,  bodies,  selves:  how  far  can  you  stretch  this  space  before  relation  shatters?  Even   the   relation   between   letters   cannot   be   relied   upon,   as   Thurston   demonstrates   in   the   slippage  between  words,  present  and  implied,  in  the  first  of  his  ‘Two  Sonnets  for  Clare   Backwell’:   should,   shoulder,   solder.   Thurston’s   scrutiny   is   relentless   and   perhaps   it   is   only   this   that   threatens   to   collapse   or   explode   the   bonds   between   words.   In   the   space   between  letters  and  words,  in  the  absence  of  speech,  Thurston  attends.  In  both  the  prose   and   the   poetry   elements   of   this   book,   Thurston   listens   into   that   felt   moment   between   question  and  answer.  But  where  there  is  relation  there  must  also  be  release.  It  is  for  the   reader  to  make  space  in  this  text,  to  occupy  a  questioning  of  this  conglomerate  thinking-­‐ feeling  self,  to  resist  or  to  extend.  Thurston’s  poetry  offers  to  rewire  you.  How  will  your   body  respond?

David Ignatow's Against The Evidence:  Selected Poems 1934-1994

David Ignatow's Against The Evidence: Selected Poems 1934-1994

There are other elements in the prose poems of Ignatow that also bear mentioning: his use of direct address, the wry humor, and the self-reflexivity. A poem such as "Talking to Myself," for example, documents how the poet consciously works through a poem (or how a poem actually works itself out; the speaker of the poem doesn't make the distinction for us, and doesn't hint at which is preferred). "About my being a poet, the trees certainly haven't expressed an interest standing at a distance," says the speaker, yet that doesn't keep him from describing the work of the poet: "Wouldn't these trees want to know what they'll be doing in a hundred years, what they look like now, how they stand, what is their name, where they are and what they actually do in winter and in summer, deaf, dumb, and happy as they are?" The work of the poet, then, is to describe what it is to be: to be a tree, to be human, to be a poet, to be a poem—seeming to echo MacLeish's "a poem should not mean / But be."

Degradation of Moral and Ethical Values: A Study of Vihang.A.Naik's Poetry Manifesto (New & Selected Poems)

To conclude, the poet Vihang. A. Naik gives an account of degradation of moral and ethical values through his poetry. Not only talking about them but also tries to find the causes of this problem. ‘A Poem Comes Alive’ shows how a poet tuned the psyche of reader from negativism to optimism. The poet successfully presents his feelings through poems and beautifully gives his message to readers.

The Concept of Patriotism and Struggle against Imperialism in the Selected Poems of Mehmet Akif Ersoy and W. B. Yeats

The Concept of Patriotism and Struggle against Imperialism in the Selected Poems of Mehmet Akif Ersoy and W. B. Yeats

As it may be understood from here, the best solution that these intellectuals and scholars found is the idea of an Islamic union which will resist the divide and rule principle that is one of the most important methods of imperial powers. According to Yüksel Kanar, the basic reason why Ersoy adopted the idea of Islamic union is that “this ideal was the only remedy that would save Turkey and the whole Islamic world” (cited in Ersoy 1997, p.10). In many of Ersoy’s poems, one can find a lot of examples that demonstrate his resistance against imperialism and colonization. In this study, Independence March will be analysed with respect to its emphasis on anti-imperialism, independence and patriotism comparing with Easter 1916 by Yeats. The other poet who endeavoured to awaken the national feelings and the spirit of national consciousness in his people’s mind is the well-known Irish national poet, W.B. Yeats. He aimed to awaken the sense of cultural nationalism and resistance against British imperialism through cultural awareness. It is a fact that the role of cultural nationalism in the destiny and future of a nation cannot be ignored. As John Hutchinson points out “Cultural nationalism conceives of a nation as a creative force, nations are not just political units ‘but organic beings, living personalities, whose individuality must be cherished by their members in all their manifestations’ (Hutchinson 1987, p.13). In this sense, the efforts of Yeats to raise cultural nationalism in Ireland through his writings cannot be underestimated. On the other hand, Ersoy puts more emphasis on verbal struggle rather than cultural one.

‘He just isn’t my Frost’: Television adaptation of R.D. Wingfield’s Jack Frost.

‘He just isn’t my Frost’: Television adaptation of R.D. Wingfield’s Jack Frost.

Despite the forceful response from Linda, punctuated by her positive impolite insult ‘you bastard’ (line 54), Frost remains entirely undeterred by her high emotional state. He encroaches ‘brutally’ on her personal space again by pulling away her hands and ‘shove(ing) his face close to her’ (line 56). He employs the dismissal ‘I don’t care a sod about your feelings’ in line 57, and a pointed criticism of her ‘bloody hysterics’ (line 58). Again the negative impoliteness output strategies condescend, scorn or ridicule, invade the other’s space and explicitly associate the other with a negative aspect are employed by Frost to force Linda to concede ‘I…I had a man here’ in line 60. The effect of Frost’s impoliteness strategies is confirmed by Linda’s reaction: ‘she recoiled as if he’d slapped her face’ (line 60). That these series of impoliteness output strategies are consciously used by Frost to force this confession would seem to be confirmed by his abandonment of impoliteness as soon as this objective has been achieved. As soon as Linda Uphill begins to provide the necessary information, ‘Frost beamed and settled down in a chair, his tone friendly and cheerful’ (line 61).

Disturbance of Native Americans as Reflected in Selected Folkloric Poems of Luci Tapahonso, Joy Harjo and Simon Ortiz

Disturbance of Native Americans as Reflected in Selected Folkloric Poems of Luci Tapahonso, Joy Harjo and Simon Ortiz

Simon Ortiz’ observations about the fate of his race is scripted in "From Sand Creek" his cycle of poems published in 1981. Ortiz starts his preface talking about the Native American history and culture. Unfortunately, this is the same history Native American people felt foreign to sometimes. Moreover, Native American people felt they have no history. They intermingle between American history and U.S. history. Since they were alienated from history, Native American people felt that they were pushed away consciously. Ortiz believes that Native Americans were made to vanish, and the aim of his poetry is helping them retrieve their past. In “This way still we shall go on,” Ortiz emphasizes the idea of looking back to the past life of the Native American life. He tells his readers that the past life was perfect and well guided, and then they should follow it to get the right way in the present life. It is necessary to look back to the past.
