Introduction, Out of Chaos
Poetry is as old as the human heart. Long before there were libraries, before people were writing down lines, before there were even cities, commerce or any manifestation of what we think of as culture, there was poetry.
More than one critic has noted that literary works are, in some way, an attempt by writers to take the unacceptable chaos of human life

The slogan is meaningful and imitating the familiar idiom delivers great information to audience. “The drive rise safer when the road is dry; the road is safer when the drive rise dry.” This traffic slogan reminds people “if the road is dry, and the driver doesn’t drink, all the drivers will be much safer.” Here, the “dry” is the pun that refers to the road as well as the drivers. Furthermore, the slogan uses comparison and rhyme in order to make it smoother and memorable.

beauty in a modern day format. Although “Dim Lady” and “my mistresses’ eyes are nothing like the sun” share many similarities in the areas of subject matter, style, and rhyme scheme, the two pieces also present many differences.
Shakespeare’s sonnet “my mistresses’ eyes are nothing like the sun” exhibits a very traditional style and poetic structure. The poem includes a rhyme schemes that is used as the conclusion for the piece. Shakespeare uses a traditional form of sonnet in his work because this was the honored style during his period. Shakespeare’s sonnet includes many outdated and invalid stereotypes as well as some vocabulary that is not utilized in present day. For instance, in

his well-known idiosyncrasies of manner, it could not be mistaken for any other poet’s writing – “Blessings emblazoned that day; Everything glowed with a gleam” has the authentic Hardy ring. Its themes are the universal emotions of loss and missed opportunity. It starts by describing the setting, then moves on to feelings with which the reader can identify. Here Hardy shows his strengths of setting, voice and tense. The past and present tenses in the first stanza signal that the narrator is talking about past and present simultaneously – a paradox, like the title of the poem. The poem’s narrator exhibits feelings of futility in this view of the past and the dead. The metre/rhyme scheme

“The Image of Desire” is a narrative poem about a group of boys keeping vigil for a fox during the night. They have the desire to protect their “fortress” from the undesirable foe. The boys believed that their honor was on the line, as if they are soldiers in a war. The poem is enjoyable to read and not something one can take figuratively. The poem has some great rhythmic qualities and displays the story of the boys as it unfolds. I will walk you the reader through the poem line by line for a better understanding of the poem.

“The market economy” by Marge Piercy, is a free verse with no rhyme or rhythm, and has very few poetic technics. Piercy was born in 1936, and grew up during the rise of capitalism in the United States. This suggest to me that her intended speaker is a mother in search of work during this time. The speaker could also be Piercy herself.
The tone of the poem is consistent throughout. Piercy’s subject matter along with her choice of blatant words create a gloomy, depressing, and disheartening tone. I feel that this tone reflects the attitude American society had just after the Great Depression: “You’ve been out of work for a year and they’re hiring at the plastic factory” (26-27

the swans, emphasized
by words such as ‘scatter’ and ‘wheeling’. Likewise, Yeats recognizes the futility of these
memories due to the inevitable changes of time, contemplating how ‘from dream to
dream and rhyme to rhyme I have ranged/ In rambling talk with an image of air’. In the
same way, this poem uses the paradoxical language of ‘cold/ companionable streams’
emphasized by the alliteration of the harsh consonant, to emphasis the consistency and
tranquillity of the swans, compared to Yeats’s loneliness—the streams are ‘cold’ because
Yeats knows that he himself will never enjoy the tranquillity and love the swans enjoy;
these are memories that will never be realised again—unlike him the swans’ ‘hearts have
not grown old’. In this way, Yeats uses the imagery of swans to depict the changes of
time and the pains caused by his memories of previous experiences at Coole Park, the
home of Lady Gregory, which he greatly enjoyed visiting when young, contrasting this
to his present lonely and unhappy state.

know it’s weird to think that I like performing, since I’m so quiet. It would become something I love, so I might as well try it. It started with a ballpoint pen and a blank page. Writing down my feelings, from what gave me joy to what instilled rage. Getting my point across so abstractly, that if you asked yourself, “who does he sound like?” the answer would be, “exactly.” Eventually, I found five others, and together, we formed a team. We saw ourselves making it, so I can never call this a dream.
Individuality is defined as the particular qualities that distinguish one person from the others. I’m the unique one in my family, so my parents stopped comparing me to my brother. From my name to my passion, I still haven’t met another person like me. If you enjoy being who you are, I would hope that you’d agree. Individuality is what I believe during my time. That’s why I made it an effort to make this essay rhyme. You may see a quiet kid, and that’s how I may appear. But I have something to say, and I think I made that clear.

What is immediately obvious to me in Blake's 'The Tyger' is the powerful rhythm the poet has created coupled with the apparent simplicity but great power of the language. Blake does this by using repetition, stress and rhythm, reinforcing this further by punctuation and alliteration ('Tyger! Tyger! burning bright'). The strong rhyme adds yet further to the power of the lines and the images they create. The power which comes from this apparent simplicity is, perhaps, what makes the poem so memorable. It would be an easy poem to learn by heart.
It might be easy to read and remember, but it is certainly not so easy to understand. Some of Blake's phrases are strange ('immortal hand'), some

In “A Barred Owl” by Richard Wilbur and “The History Teacher” by Billy Collins, adults attempt to explain the unknown to children by lying. In both poems, literary devices are used to convey exactly how the adults manipulate the children to believe everything other than the truth, mainly to keep them in a state of calm and ignorance. Devices such as rhyme scheme and juxtaposition are used in Wilbur’s poem to demonstrate the effectiveness of lying to calm one’s fears while other devices such as tone and metaphors are used in Collins’ to show the effects of misinformation on the actions of the youth, as well as the ignorance of the individuals who spread it.

The language used in the story is childish: “moocow,” “tuckoo,” and “nicens” all of which can be considered childish mannerisms.

is an ode or tribute to flowers. ‘To An Athlete Dying Young’ has a AABB rhyming scheme whereas ‘a contemplation Upon Flowers’ has a ABABCC rhyme scheme. Both poems however have a tone of admiration to flowers, or the athlete who died young. The mood in ‘ To An Athlete Dying Young’ however is more reflective.
Death is a taboo topic which is presented and perceived in many ways. However contrasting, both poems are admiring something or someone for their death or bravery towards it. Despite how death is viewed, it is still unavoidable… like taxes.

Firstly, Yeats presents his negative attitude towards ageing by idealising youth in his old age. As he looks upon a youthful Maud Gonne, he describes ‘and thereupon my heart was driven wild’. The lexical choice ‘wild’ emphasises Yeats’s uncontrollable and obsessional love towards Maud Gonne and how he feels that it has held him back in his old age. Yeats is left feeling bitter towards ageing as he reminisces about the memories of unrequited love in his old age. The hypnotising ABABACC rhyme scheme emphasises the hypnotic effect of Maud Gonne’s face and how Yeats is being drawn back into his youthful memories. This line mirrors the line ‘imagination

Activities need to be linked to some interesting everyday activities about which they already know, eg: sharing an English picture book, saying a rhyme in English, having an ‘English’ snack.
Activities are accompanied by adult language giving a running commentary about what is going on and dialogues using parentese language.

and Orlando set up by Shakespeare in As You Like It. Adam promises that he will “follow thee to the last gasp with truth and loyalty” when Orlando decides to go to the forest. By changing the rhyme scheme for Adam’s declaration of commitment to Orlando, Shakespeare effectively emphasizes the lack of superficiality that exists in this relationship as opposed to other relationships he sets up in the play. In their relationship, Orlando finds purpose and stability in his life, knowing he has another person who will always look out for him, just as Adam finds purpose knowing he will always be in the company of Orlando, seen where he states “Fortune cannot recompense me better than to die well

For example, “If your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him drink; for by doing so you will heap burning coals upon his head” (Romans 12). If Paul in this verse meant it in literal terms, there would be thousands of people with blistering scalps.

The disciples did not prioritize the spiritual needs of others like Jesus did.

He also broke barriers and turned the conversation to spiritual matters. In this example, Jesus moved from the physical water to her need for the living water.
