    Marianne Moore The Fish

    • 1146 Words
    • 5 Pages

    Marianne Moore was one of the most famous poets of the modernist era, appreciated in both social and literary spheres, yet differed from other poets of her time because of how her language was condensed and precise, capable of suggesting a variety of ideas. Her ability to combine multiple associations into a single, compact image allows her characters to be conveyed intricately, as seen in her poems “Radical,” “Poetry,” “Silence,” and “The Fish.” Within the poems I have chosen to analyze, through the use of her imagery and syntax, Moore demonstrates the challenges humans have to comprehend emotions and detect truth while encouraging her readers to uncover the underlying, principle meaning beneath everything. Imagism was a movement popular…

    ''Poetry'' by Marianne Moore was very interesting. For you to understand this poem you have to break it down paragraph by paragraph to truly understand the meaning that's in this.

I think out of all the other poems I think this one was the hardest to crack down, but the best thing out of this poem was when I finally understood it, I was…

    Marianne Moore Marriage

    • 1446 Words
    • 6 Pages

    rejection of traditional poetry allows for new contrasting and often conflicting ideas to come together into one. The poetry of Marianne Moore in particular is full of contradictions; she examines average subjects in hyper-detail and employs both precision and an overabundance of metaphor and anecdote in order to develop her own personal style. Her poem “Marriage” is a fragmented piece that tackles the inherently contradictory “institution” of marriage. This caustic poem nearly totals 300 lines,…

    the poems, short stories, and novels we read are not clear-cut on what the author is trying to propose. Kurt Vonnegut and Marianne Moore begin their writing with a weird concept. They use first person in their first line or chapter and then switch to third person. This left many people including me questioning the point. Vonnegut and Moore share some similar features in their writings, but also have their own reasoning on why to start in such a odd, effective way. Slaughterhouse-five 's first…

In, “Poetry” Moore used concrete objects to emphasize the difference between materialistic views as opposed to the meaning of meaningful and emotional text. In “Nothing Gold Can Stay”…
