In Chapter 5 of Literary Theory: A Very Short Introduction, Jonathan Culler discusses some of the ways poetry asks us to think about how language works. This week you are also annotating the two poems that are the subject of your first paper. For this blog post, I would like you to consider the chapter from Culler’s book alongside your reading of the poems. Find one or two places in one of these poems and identify a rhetorical or poetic technique Culler describes in Chapter 5. Why does this technique jump out at you as being important or interesting? How does it help shape the meaning of the poem?

– One most important fact in chapter 5 of “Literary Theory” Culler stated that they provide a visual image to the reader through to instance there experiences by connecting knowledge with the readers such as “sea” to be understood by the reader and acknowledge what the reading is trying to state.
