To Fathers With Daughters Poem Analysis

Improved Essays
My poetry anthology is a collection of poems that I thoroughly enjoy and relate too. There is no set theme in my poetry anthology. Despite having no set theme, love is a frequent theme in my poetry anthology. Love is a frequent theme because I am a clichéd hopeless romantic who simply loves anything to do with love. Some of the greatest poems come from those who are in love, take W.B Yeats for example who writes of his unrequited love for Maud Gonne. There's a quote that says all lovers are poets and I believe certain poems in my anthology portrays this. My poetry anthology also features poets that I enjoy, but believe are underrated such as Lily Cigale, Caitlyn Siehl, and Rupi Kaur. Some poems in my anthology are ones that I can relate too …show more content…
This poem's a great representation of that. I also enjoyed how it portrayed the reassurance given by the new partner. To Fathers With Daughters by Rupi Kaur
I'm a fan of assertive methods and strongly oppose against any form of physical and verbal abuse. Often, I believe men, in particular, raise their voice loudly too frequently towards their children and this poem is written for those who do. I picked this poem because it's one that needs to be heard. We're All Fragile, Us Humans by Matt Haig
I picked this poem for my poetry anthology because I'm passionate about human rights and equality. Like the previous poem, this is a poem that I believe needs to be heard.

Welcome by Rupi Kaur
I really just like the poet Rupi Kaur and wanted to give her more exposure in my poetry anthology because I believe she's deserving of it. I picked this poem at random, but looking back, I can see why and that's simply because it's true. I Kissed A Feminist Once by Lily Cigale
This is my favorite poem in my poetry anthology. I believe it portrays the ignorance of someone who views a person as no more than a feminist, which often, society does. We are objectified by our beliefs and causes, not by who we are.

    At the start of the semester, I was so drawn to this idea that I had to write about feelings that everyone understood. For some reason, I was under the impression that relatable poetry was automatically “good” poetry. Yet, when I wrote poetry that everyone immediately understood, I was not happy with it. My poems that were relatable were dull or cliché. That is why I loved writing “To My Grandmother”.…

    This allows readers to fully understand her fiery personality, and relate to what drove her to create and to pursue her dream of becoming famous through her poetry. One of the points that Mr. Wilbur made was that Miss Dickinson, “was deprived of literary recognition.” To further this statement he also explained, “The truth is, I think, that Emily Dickinson knew she was good, and began her career with a normal appetite for recognition.” We see this ambition in Dickinson’s poem, “Success is counted sweetest.” The beginning lines are as follows: “success is counted sweetest- By those who ne’er succeed.” This poem leaves its reader with the sting of bitter resentment toward the paradox of one’s own mind set. She describes the disappointing feeling of losing the drive to reach a goal that you have already achieved. Perhaps she is trying to reason with herself that if she had become a successful author, then she would not appreciate being successful. Mr. Wilbur also believed that, “she seems to have found her life, in great part, a history of loneliness, separation, and bereavement.” This means that while she was ambitious and driven, her illness prevented her from achieving many of her goals, and her poetry often covertly conveys this…

    The attitude of love life in Ezra Pound's poetry. The memory of love in someone's mind has always been found in someone's poetry.

    "Of ever two were one, then surely we" (1). This quotation is probably the most important in the entire poem due to the fact that Bradstreet is pointing out that she does not feel as though she is one individual person. After a couple of times of reading this poem I began to think that while writing this poem Anne Bradstreet wanted readers to use this piece as an example of how marriages should be. Maybe not though. She wanted to set us up with some expectations of true love, and I believe that is precisely what she…

    In early 17th century literature, there are several poems and texts that praise the beauty of carnal passion and the cleverness of seduction, but there is also a whole genre of text that glorifies the platonic love of a friend. Friendship is a powerful and essential aspect to understanding the connection writers have to their community and the way that society affects their work. In particular, Katherine Philips devotes herself to her friends through her writing and often creates Neoplatonic pieces specifically for female writers in the Society of Friendship. Philips is adamant that sexual love is not the absolute expression of love, but that true friendship is the testament of affection. Although some of her verses can be interpreted as homoerotic…

    Although love has a different meaning in both relationships, it is still the most powerful emotion felt for both. During the novel, Morrie is constantly saying that “[t]he most important thing in life is to learn how to give out love, and to let it come in.” ( Albom, P.52). To further discuss, he is trying to explain that love is not as it is perceived as, it is not something that makes one weak but creates strength. By accepting that, love will be easier to give and it will not be as scary to let people love you. In addition, love is what reassures the population about death.…

    “The theme is that love is not an earthly concept but an eternal, everlasting thing that lasts well beyond the cold grave. The poem is not related to how she loves or why, but just the way in which she does so; freely and purely. They had never met but they were just expressing how much they loved each other and this is one of the love poems that they shared. She defines herself with the ways she love Robert. She certainly would not be the speaker of the poem without her love, or her beloved.…

    In the end he says “And yet, by heaven, I think my love as rare/as any she belied with false compare.” (Shakespeare 772) Shmoop.com says “the speaker thinks that his lover is as wonderful as any woman who was ever misrepresented by an exaggerated comparison.” (Shmoop Editorial Team) What Shakespeare is saying in the last two lines is his mistress is rare and that she is falsely compared to those things he wrote about. Shakespeare wrote this sonnet to joke that he could still be a good poet even if his poetry isn’t a love poem or romantic. He can us figurative language and write out a poem like this pointing out all of someone’s flaws and it still be a good poem and people still admire it 400 years…
