Sir Walter Raleigh (1552-1618) was called a “silver poet of his time because of the way he did not conform to the poet writing style of the Renaissance era.

Reflecting on the Past and Future
Poetry is a way to express a deeper truth and to move people or make them feel emotion. This is true in “The Road Not Taken” by Robert Frost and “Combing” by Gladys Cardiff. In “The Road Not Taken” the speaker is at a fork in the road and must choose a path. They are both worn down about the same and he tells himself he could always come back for the other. The deeper meaning is the speaker has a dilemma and must make a decision. In “Combing” a mother...

The first poem ‘Sonnet 130’ by William Shakespeare has a humorous view on the traditional ideas of
beauty. The poem is a five duplet metre with the stressed sounds starting on the second word of each line.
Each line has the same amount of stressed and unstressed patterns which is very common for sonnets to
make it quick and easy to read. The five duplet pattern never mimics human speech in the way a four duplet

He is that fallen lance that lies as hurled,
That lies unlifted now, come dew, come rust,
But still lies pointed as it plowed the dust.
If we who sight along it round the world,
See nothing worthy to have been its mark,
It is because like men we look too near,
Forgetting that as fitted to the sphere,
Our missiles always make too short an arc.
They fall, they rip the grass, they intersect
The curve of earth, and striking, break their own;

Poetry is an imaginative awareness of experience expressed through meaning, sound, and rhythmic language choices so as to evoke an emotional response. Poetry has been known to employ meter and rhyme, but this is by no means necessary. Poetry is an ancient form that has gone through numerous and drastic reinvention over time. The very nature of poetry as an authentic and individual mode of expression makes it nearly impossible to define. Poetry is sometimes hard to understand but other times...

1914 poetry - 763 Words
In the poetry of 1914 there is both crude propaganda and poems that are subtle and deeply moving if naïve.
The poetry in 1914 had purpose for why they were written. Some were written with the intent of trying to enlist more men for the war because the authors believed that all men should fight for their country. While others were to show everyone that war is not so glorious and there is nothing sweet about fighting for their country. Either way, they all used naïve idealism or sometimes crude...

Is Hip-Hop/Rap Poetry?
Over the past several years, hip-hop's/music standing has been tumbling. Criticizers of the genre often arguably point at the extreme cursing, degradation of women, and adoration of the "gangsta" lifestyle as major flaw in rap songwriting. However, it is important that these characteristics only describe a small section of hip-hop. Most rap songs are actually very poetic, as they feature the rhythms and verses, poetic devices, and themes that are crucial elements of...

Metaphors in Poetry - 260 Words
The use of metaphor in poetry is one of the most important aspects of poetic style that must be mastered.

One may try and seek a definition for poetry, but there is no correct answer. In fact, each person will have his own version for the definition of poetry.

John Orley Allen Tate
Many poems that we ordinarily think of as good poetry -- and some, besides, that we neglect -- have certain common features that will allow us to invent, for their sharper apprehension, the name of a single quality. I shall call that quality tension. In abstract language, a poetic work has distinct quality as the ultimate effect of the whole, and that whole is the “result” of a configuration of meaning which it is the duty of the critic to examine...
