Our particular favorite is Dante's mention in the Empyrean that all the blinding brilliance there is the result of a single ray of light from God. He writes in his Poetics (c. 350 BCE): "Tragedy is an imitation of an action that is serious, complete, and of a certain magnitude; . . . through pity [eleos] and fear [phobos] effecting the proper purgation [catharsis] of these emotions" (Book 6.2). (See tragedy .) Click here to download a pdf handout concerning this material.

April 12, 2015: "Manatee" by Robert J. Some ghazal are written with a theme throughout all the couplets, but that is a fringe trend. Having made us observe that she had assumed one of the most constrained, and, therefore, most ungraceful positions possible, she proceeded to recite the curse of King Lear on his undutiful offspring in a manner which made hair rise and flesh creep, and then called on us to remark the additional effect which was gained by the concentrated energy which the unusual and ungraceful posture in itself implied.

Here, artful use of anaphora and epistrophe combined help Paul make his point more emphatically. Vincent Millay's "Counting-Out Rhyme": reference, often to literature, history, mythology, or the Bible, that is unacknowledged in the text but that the author expects the reader to recognize. Alliteration: the repetition of initial sounds in two or more words. The working the stuffs may be a means of relieving the starving weavers of Spitalfields, and the clothes could be conveniently enough forwarded by the escorts who are to protect the chests of specie.

His shipmates suffered grievously, ``But for my part,'' says the chaplain, ``I bless heaven that I was in a burning fever the whole time, and desired nothing but cold water, of which there was plenty on the island.'' Now, though the good man seems to have been grateful even for his burning fever (having, it must be observed, safely recovered from it,) it will generally be thought rather too hazardous a remedy to be desired by others in similar situations, and those who treat their trees on the same principle ought to remember, that to cure one injury they are exposing their subjects to two.

I picked up one after another all the various objects on the dressing-table. Two or more syllables that together make up the smallest unit of rhythm in a poem. Anyone who has followed the Comedy this far knows that Dante is pretty confident. It is to say, however, that their canvases of exploration are broader than rural black America or inner city urban America. Kemble's sanction; he had too much sense and too much taste.

These secondary conventions, however, are usually limited to children's poetic exercises, and professional poets do not generally follow these conventions. In many Dickinson poems, abstract ideas and material things are used to explain each other, but the relation between them remains complex and unpredictable. This criminal elicited sympathy by his candor, his utter humanity, and his direct appeal to our heart. As a matter of fact the necessity of having to pay, to actually give money to people, infuriated the pious Therese.

Then came a time when the hallucinations of Do a Rita and the faithful Rose left him altogether. The manufacture of Kelp, which is carried on to an immense extent through all the shores and isles of the Highlands, supporting thousands of men with their families, who must otherwise emigrate or starve, and forming the principal revenue of many Highland proprietors, is nearly, if not exactly, on the same footing with the fisheries; is carried on chiefly by the same medium of circulation; and, like them, supplied by the Bankers with small notes for that purpose, at a reasonable profit to themselves, and with the utmost advantage to the country and its productive resources.

We know of this story in Colorado, but she has made it a new telling through the use of poetry and by having the story told with one voice, Mary Ann. A type of poetry consisting of stanzas of seven lines in iambic pentameter with the rhyme scheme ababbcc. In this and other pieces the author seems to have suffered in the eyes of his countrymen by attending too much to the advice of David Hume, in such cases surely an incompetent judge, who entreats him, for heaven's sake, ``to read Shakspeare, but get Racine and Sophocles by heart.''--- (Vol. i., p. 100.) The critic had not sufficiently considered how much the British stage differs both from the French and the Grecian in the structure and character of the entertainments there exhibited.
