"To The Men Of England"
Rhyme scheme: The poem is written in a scheme taht follows the AABB patter. The smooth pattern adds to the rythmic flow of the lyrical piece. For eample, in the fourth zranza he uses calm with balm and dear with fear
Poetic Device: Metaphor
Imagery: In the last stanza he puts the image into our head taht if the people/ workers do not stand up for themselves then they practically might consider building their own graves for the fact the England is taking "advantage" of them
Hyperbole: He exaggerates in the last stanza symbolizing that if they allow England to continue taking "advantage" of them then they might as well dig their grave.... Not truly meaning to that extent
Theme: Shelley basically points ut his diddain for the blatant exploitation for the of laborers unmistakable. He makes the point that workers need to stand up for themselves because the upper men are just using them
Historical Connections: In England from the 17th century through the 19th century, The lowest class consisted of laborers, those who did not wn land, and tenant farmers. Tenant farmers rented plots of land from the wealthy landowners in order to raise crops for minute peofits and to sustain their families
Rhyme Scheme: The poem is written in a AABB ryhming scheme.. in the second stanza he uses growned with reowned and gained with maintained.
Poetic devices: Metaphor
Hperbole: In the second stanza he exagerates that the hope for England is "crowned"
Dominant words: Glory, fame, joy, dreams, hero, truth, strong, and mighty
Historical Connections: During the Industrial Revolution there was a new middle class that was working and thriving in England. Trade became so important that merchants were now seen as an important, necessary part of society leading them to go out and conqure and be great
Theme: The theme shows honor and how proud the people of England were and still are due to the stragtries that lend them to greatness
When shelly uses the mataphor saying that "Bees of england" he is illustrasting that the workers of this day and age were pratically working bees. He refers to them in that manner because he believed that they worked very hard to get by on a every day basis to practically survive. Even though they worked that hard they were mistreated by the upper class men and werent given the respect that he believed they deserved. In Benson's poem he uses the metaphor "Mother to the free" which in my eyes means tha the land doesnt have mistreatments that are accuring that everyone is treated to the up most standard and has the freedom to do what so ever that might be to make money fortheir family and themselves.
In Shelleys poem he uses anger and a form of drakness explaining what he feels. He elaborates that the "freedom" of england was only possible for the people of the rich and the poor had to work over the minimum just to be able to survive. He uses words such as Grave, tomb, and chains to show the inprisionment that the workers upheld. He later begins to show encourgment for the people to stand up for themselves because the upper class men do not care, they only praise themeselves and hold their nose to the poor. For example, during the 1800s The disparity between the upper and lower classes became more exaggerated. Instead of extending a hand to those in the most desperate of situations, the upper classes left the poor to fend for themselves. This shows the anger that Shelley held towrds the upper class even though him himself was part of the upper calss. In Benson's peom he uses a differnent method. He shows the pride of England, and joyfulness. For example, in the last stanza he states "Thy fame is ancient as the days,As Ocean large and wide:A pride that dares, and heeds not praise,A stern and silent pride.Not that false joy that dreams contentWith what our sires have won;The blood a hero sire hath spent Still nerves a hero son." This statements goes into the joy that the people uphold, that although their victories and achievements might have been decades ago the heroism tht was shown and trust fot their country well continue to be carried on no matter what. Benson uses words such asGlory, fame, joy, dream, hero, truth, strong, and mighty, these words to him not only describe england but the words were made for england. Benson's approach makes you appericate the greatness that they achieved in that short period of time.
