  • Process Memo Sample

    Process Memo I came up with the idea for “beautiful and serene” after thinking about the memories I’ve made with my Dad. This is because I realized that whenever I write a piece about him, it seems almost intricate, yet effortless. Moreover, I chose that specific memory because it was one filled with action and it gave the reader a brief view into my family dynamic. The way my Dad reacted to my antics are indicative of his character. Also, this poem changed the least from draft to draft because…

  • Ode To My Socks Poem Analysis

    audience. The message that flows out of this poet is what is going through his mind. With this, he discusses how life is, and how to live it too. Even though this literature is a poem, it is actually sounding like a song type of meter known as a villanelle. Notably, Theodore Roethke uses the first stanza of the poem twice. The metaphor he is trying to imply in, “I wake to sleep” is that it means life and death, which is the beginning to end of a human soul. The fate he is mentioning is how…

  • Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night And Margaret Atwood's

    Margaret Atwood’s “Flowers” and Dylan Thomas’s “Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night” are similar in which both themes revolve around the death of a father. Both authors use symbols to strength what they are trying to say. For example, in Atwood’s poem, she compares the dying of her father to dying flowers. When she talks about cutting the dead stems of the flowers, she writes, “... [I] put them in a jar I brought from home, because they don’t have vases in this hotel for the ill.” She uses…

    In Response to One Art The poem that I have chosen for review is “One Art” (Strand and Boland, pg.11-12), written by Elizabeth Bishop. This particular poem focuses on the simplicity of loss. Specifically, on how easy it is to lose and then move on.

    Negradas, Rouvinn Uy BA Communications Arts 4 2010-67914 Lit21B An Analysis on the Collection of Poems by Keith Douglas Most of Douglas’ poems are confessional and direct. While reading his poem it seems that he is taking my imagination to the precise moment when he was writing it.

    The speaker further highlights the eagerness and positivity of his father towards death, "I think he wants to go,/ a little bit – a new desire/ to travel building up, an itch/ to see fresh worlds" (Hudgins 6-9). In addition, the speaker knows that his father has a positive outlook on death because of what heaven promises. Further evidence supports, as the speaker uses yet another euphemism for heaven, "to travel building up" (Hudgins 8), we can see how far he distances himself from his father 's…
