ME I LOVE
TRUE "The Guitarist Tunes Up"
page 61 Sound and Sense CALL
LOVE Poems Excerpts Crystal King "Living in Sin"
page 55 Sound and Sense
Laurence Perrine "Not that at five each separate stair would writhe
under the milkman's tramp; that morning light
so coldly would delineate the scraps
of last night's cheese and three sepulchral bottles;
that on the kitchen shelf among the saucers
a pair of beetle-eyes would fix her own-" Imagery
This makes you feel that the speaker is unaware of their sin, and you can feel that they expect things to be right on their own without any effort for themselves. The author makes you feel bad that this is going on, and that they are abusing their power. He is showing tyranny. "Over his instrument;
Not as a lordly conqueror who could
Command both wire and wood," Simile:
Using as, a guitar is being compared to the player of the guitar. "I felt a funeral in my brain"
page 69 Sound and Sense "As all the heavens were a bell" Metaphor:
The heavens are being compared to a bell.
The sound is of a song, and the motions are quick.
Together, they can make a harmony. "The Sheaves"
Edwin Arlington Robinson
page 43 "As if a thousand girls with golden hair" connotation- the implied meaning of "golden hair" is saying that it is very valuable, not actually real gold. Sound and Sense
Laurence Perrine Edwin does this to show how valuable the world is by comparing it to gold. "Spring"
page 10 Sound and Sense
Laurence Perrine "And cuckoo-buds of yellow hue
Do paint the meadows with delight" Personification ~ Flowers can not really paint anything.
The author is implying that the garden is like a beautiful painting. "Earth"
John Hall Wheelock "The Martian astronomer, gazing off into the air" Allusion: Wheelock shows from an alien's point of view.
"Martians" means "aliens".
Only some descendants of another planet can look upon the intelligence of humans and their planet. Sound and Sense
Laurence Perrine "Southern Cop"
Sterling A. Brown
page 116-117 "It was unfortunate" Sound and Sense
Laurence Perrine Understatement: A man was standing with a gun waiting nervously, and it was unfortunate that he shot and killed an innocent man.
It was definitely horrible and more than unfortanute that an innocent man died for no reason. Sound and Sense Symbol: Tone: Death is the tone of this poem. The emotional feeling from the reader is melancholy. Sound and Sense
Laurence Perrine Sound and Sense Form: The author uses the understatement to show how tough a situation can really be for a cop. "For a Lamb"
by Richard Eberhart "I saw on the slant hill a putrid lamb,
Propped with daisies. The sleep looked deep." The author uses this tone to show the contrast between life and death. Copyright 1992
Laurence Perrine The author uses this simile to show how a player can be similar to their instrument. Copyright 1992
Laurence Perrine The author uses this metaphor to give good feelings about this place. The reason Shakespeare uses gives the flowers personification is to show the artistic creation of the garden. He uses this allusion to make you realize that what he is talking about is not human.
