Poetry Analysis Description of Assignment: A literary analysis essay pulls apart a piece of writing to examine its technique and understand its themes and ideas. For this assignment, you will write an analytical essay, no less than 1000 words (with an additional works cited page that includes your two poems as primary sources and at least two secondary sources), that analyzes, compares and contrasts how the poems use two or more of the poetic devices on the Poetic Devices Glossary worksheet (we will address this soon). It will be important to use appropriate terminology in your analysis. Organization: The introduction should focus on the poetic device you will be analyzing in the poems, not necessarily the poets or history of the poems, although a little background on the authors can be helpful in the introduction. Your thesis should focus on the poetic devices you will analyze in the poems. The body should examine different ways the poetic devices show up in the poems; for instance, if you were focusing on theme, then you may look at the way the theme is expressed in symbols, imagery, structure, tone, etc. In addition, the body should help us see what is to be gained by comparing and contrasting the poems’ unique take on your chosen poetic devices. Spend less time on the historical context of the poem or the author. Avoid analyzing one poem separately from the other. Organize the paper point-by-point (more on that in class). The conclusion should restate your thesis and examine any new understandings that arise from analyzing the poems. What should we take with us about the themes? What have you uncovered in these texts that is worth remembering? What do we gain by analyzing the same poetic devices in two different poems? Requirements: · MLA formatted with in-text citations and a works cited page · atleast 1000 words · Two sources in addition to your two poems EMILY DICKINSON Because I Could Not Stop For Death PABLO NERUDA Nothing But Death ...

Generally, poetry can either make use of poetic devices; follow a strict structure or none
at all. Poetic devices are tools used by poets with an aim of creating rhythm, intensify the poem’s
feeling and mood or just enhance its meaning (Bacon, 22). The devices utilized in poetry can
also be used in literature to achieve the same goals. This is undoubtedly the reason why Emily
Dickinson and Pablo Neruda in their poems, ‘Because I Could Not Stop For Death’ and ‘Nothing
But Death’ respectively utilized most of the poetic devices to clarify the message they intended
to pass through the poems. Two of the several poetic devices used in the two poems are imagery
and personification. Imagery includes the descriptions which appeal or evoke the five human
senses (Bacon, 22). The imagery could either be visual, tactile or auditory. These appeal to the
human senses of sight, touch and hearing respectively. Personification, on the other hand, refers
to the attribution of a human or personal character to something that is non-human (Paxson, 43)....
