With a few exceptions, the poem primarily follows the form of accentual-syllabic verse. The majority of lines are composed of three syllables, most often two unstressed and one stressed. Using a combination of structural technique and descriptive language, Williams emphasizes the action of visual perception.
Strawberry bushes go on for miles, green and red brightening the gloomy sky. Rolling hills of trees and fog surround the strawberry patch as birds come and go. The air has a crisp bite to it. The fresh scent of the air soothes the singing birds. “Strawberry fields Forever” by
One of the first things you notice is the usage of an almost perfect rhyme scheme. Dunbar uses this frequently through the entire poem, using the AABB method. I personally think that Dunbar uses this to fit in well with other poems, so peers understand that it is, in fact, a poem.
The poem also uses end rhyme to add a certain rhythm to the poem as a whole. And the scheme he employs: aabbc, aabd, aabbad. End rhyme, in this poem, serves to effectively pull the reader through to the end of the poem. By pairing it with lines restricted to eight syllables. The narrator creates an almost nursery-rhyme like rhythm. In his third stanza however, his last line, cutting short of eight syllables, stands with an emphatic four syllables. Again, in the last stanza, he utilizes the same technique for the last line of the poem. The narrator’s awareness of rhyme and syllable structure provides the perfect bone structure for his poem’s rhythm.

She also presents a slight rhythm to the reading that allows for smooth reading. In keeping with her open form, there is no set scheme to the rhyme pattern. However, there is a single ending sound constantly repeated without a set pattern throughout the work. She also connects pairs of lines at random just for the sake of making connections to make that particular stanza flow. At the same time, she chose blatantly not to rhyme in certain parts to catch the reader’s attention.

Elizabeth Bishop’s childhood was not the typical mom and dad experience. Her father died when she was 8 months old and her mother, when she was five, was checked in at an insane asylum. She stayed in the asylum until she died. Most of her poems was about her childhood. Her childhood played in a factor for not having a religious connection of some sort. As I was reading her poem, “Roosters”, she refers to the roosters in comparison with a religious event, the denial of St. Peter. Although she had no recorded religious background, I believe the story of Peter’s denial of knowing Jesus. The poem “Roosters”, is a comparison with her life as well as is with the last hours leading to Jesus’ death, regarding St. Peter, his disciple. How this poem relates to her life is quite simple. As a child she was forced move to different homes, all within family relations. She had to have the feeling that her family denied her when things got hard and they acted as if they didn’t know her and shipped her off. This experience made it easy for her to write this poem.
In his essay, “Horse and Gentlemen,” T.H. Breen describes the cultural significance of gambling, specifically in relation to the quarter-horse races, in late 17th century Virginia. Breen primarily argues that the three main aspects of gambling – competitiveness, materialism, and individualism – reflected and reinforced the socio-economic structure of Virginia in this period. The high stakes wagers of the affluent planters reinforced their dominant status in the social structure and the gentry’s right to rule over this colony. Breen’s argument to this effect is supported by letters, court transcripts, documentation of wagers, and other written first-hand accounts. Breen’s case for the cultural significance of gambling has persuasive arguments for its representation of competitiveness and materialism. However, his argument for individualism has contrary elements and his essay would have been improved with the inclusion of women’s role in the gambling culture.
