The Listeners “The Listeners” by Walter Del La Mare is a poem, which has an sudden ending. I'll present how the poet creates temper and environment via imagery, alliteration, rhythm and rhyme. I felt this poem may be very unusual as a result of it's ghostly and spooky. “The Listeners” is a couple of “traveller” who involves an empty home within the forest ground and retains on knocking on the door asking ” I s there anyone there? ” however nobody solutions and he's some how perplexed.
This poem may be very spooky due to the alliteration used: “his horse within the silence chomped the grasses”.
The mod of the poem may be very intense and the depth is created by the imagery utilized by the poet. The environment on this poem is unusual however daring as there are all the time questions left unanswered which the reader has to attempt to work out. The type within the poem is in narrative type as a result of there are not any verses and reads like a narrative.
The rhythm is 12 and seven beats in each 2 strains this implies that there's a rhythm patterns which implies each second line rhymes. This poem is written narrative, which implies that the reader observes the “Traveller” as if from afar.
This poem is stuffed with nice alliteration equivalent to “forests ferny ground” the repitition is within the “F”. I feel it's to make you discover that the forest id delicate and silent. Different examples are “silence surged softly”. That is one other good instance of alliteration because it makes me assume that the silence is surging again when the traveller is gone as a result of there isn't a one left alive. My conclusion for “The Listeners” is that it's a good poem with nice alliteration because it makes the poem a wee bit extra scary.
