Description of Music in A Poem The Lake Isle of Innisfree Discussion
I’m working on a english question and need an explanation and answer to help me learn.
OPTION A: In introducing “The Lake Isle of Innisfree,” Yeats said that it was the first poem he wrote in which he made his own music. Describe this music in the poem. Where do you hear it? Pay attention to meter, line length, rhyme, assonance, alliteration, and other uses of sound.
OPTION B: In “Adam’s Curse,” Yeats strategically repeats the word “together” in the first verse paragraph. How does he use this word and how is the theme of being together or putting things together (or alternatively, of being apart) important to the poem as a whole? What other repeated words, images, or motifs do you notice, and why do they matter?
