Brenda Perez Sunflower Sutra
-by Allen Ginsberg
1955 Analysis Contemplations Sunflower Sutra Links Language Imagery Details Diction Diction Details Imagery Definition: visually desciptive of figurative language
->"under the cooling shadow of a stately elm close sat i by a goodly river's side, where gliding streams the rocks did overwhelm, a lonely place, with pleasures dignified" Definition: an individual feature fact or item
-> And then the earth (though old) still clad in green.
the stones and trees insensible of time nor age nor wrinkle on their front are seen;
-> Under the cooling shadow of a stately elm close sat i bay a goodly river's side. "same thoughts of the soul, bleak and blue and sad-eyed"
Ginsberg choses to use these words to create a setting of despair "corolla of bleary spikes pushed down and broken like a batteretd crown, seeds fallen out of its face, soon-to-be-toothless mounth of sunny air, sunrays obliterated on its hairy head like a dried wire spiderweb"
Ginsberg uses imagery to help the audience imagine wha the sunflower looks like -> Jack Kerouac sat beside me on a busted rusty iron pole
-> The oily water on the river mirrored the red sky,
-> we're not our skin of grime, we're not our dread bleak dusty imageless locomotive, we're all beautiful golden sunflowers inside, we're blessed by our own seed and golden hairy naked accomplishment-bodies growing into mad black formal sunflowers in the sunset Bradstreets poem is about nature and god
She basically says that without the world there is no nature
We believe that Bradstreet is trying to make the same point that hawthorne made; that to believe in God we just have to look at his creations Ginsberg's writing is about beauty
There is beauty in all things even those that others do not find pleasing to look at www.poetryfoundation.org

->"the earth (though old) still clad in green, The stones and trees, insensible of time"
Bradstreet says that the stones and trees are insesible of time however stones breakdown and trees eventually get old and stop growing. i belive bradstreet chooses these words to make it seem like nature itself is insensible of time Contemplations
1981 Language Syntax Tone Style Syntax Tone Style
"crackly bleak and dusty with the smut and smog"
at the begging the tone is very subdued
"A perfect beauty of a sunflower! a perfect excellent lovely sunflower existence"
at the end the tone is hopeful and joyful Definition: accent or inflection expressive of a mood or emotion
"O happy Flood, quoth I, that holds thy race
Till thou arrive at thy beloved place,
Nor is it rocks or shoals that can obstruct thy pace. "
the tone in Bradstreets poem is awe because she is amazed by the beauty of nature Definition: The arrangement of words and phrases to create well-formed sentences in a language definition: describes the ways that the author uses words
Bradstreet mainly uses language and imagery to write about the greatness of God and his many creations in Ginsberg's writing he uses many details to help his readers picture in their head the sad "battered old thing" of a sunflower, but he also uses details and language to help readers see that "we're all beautiful golden sunflowers inside" Definition: words that describe the entire body of words in a text Symbolic: representative and metaphorical Passionate Repetition
