i have to write a literary analysis for the poem, "the tide rises, the tide falls". in the poem ive chosen write abt two elements, imagery and symbolism. and ive to analyse their purpose, effect, and place in the literary work's meaning.
thus im just asking where can i get more insight and info for my essay. and could you explain what they mean by saying, analyse their purpose, effect, and place in the literary work's meaning".
They are asking you to explain how the imagery helps the reader understand what the poem is about.
This is an excellent example of imagery.
"The little waves, with their soft, white hands
Efface the footprints in the sands,"
This is personification of the waves. They want you to explain how this type of imagery would make clearer the meaning of the poem.
alright....getting a hang of it.....is there any site that could help me understanding more this poem and its imagery and symbolism?
Yes. The one I gave you in response to your other duplicate post.
duplicate post? of this question or another question???
