“The Empty Dance Shoes” by Cornelius Eady My friends, As it has been proven in the laboratory, An empty pair of dance shoes Will sit on the floor like a wart Until it is given a reason to move. Those of us who study inertia (Those of us covered with wild hair and sleep) Can state this without fear: The energy in a pair of shoes at rest Is about the same as that of a clown Knocked flat by a sandbag. This you can tell your friends with certainty: A clown, flat on his back, Is a lot like an empty pair of dancing shoes. An empty pair of dancing shoes Is also a lot like a leaf Pressed in a book. And now you know a simple truth: A leaf pressed in, say, The Colossus by Sylvia Plath,1 Is no different from an empty pair of dance shoes Even if those shoes are in the middle of the Stardust Ballroom With all the lights on, and hot music shakes the windows up and down the block. This is the secret of inertia: The shoes run on their own sense of the world. They are in sympathy with the rock the kid skips over the lake After it settles to the mud. Not with the ripples, But with the rock. A practical and personal application of inertia Can be found in the question: Whose Turn Is It To Take Out The Garbage? An empty pair of dance shoes Is a lot like the answer to this question, As well as book-length poems Set in the Midwest. To sum up: An empty pair of dance shoes Is a lot like the sand the 98-pound weakling brushes from his cheeks As the bully tows away his girlfriend. Later, When he spies the coupon at the back of the comic book, He is about to act upon a different set of scientific principles. He is ready to dance. Can anyone give me a clue how to analyze it?
@jamie2012 HERE IS ONE OF THE QUESTION.. HELP ME PLEASE
this is what i did. Directions: Answer the questions below. Use full sentences when applicable. 1. Give two examples of each of the following elements of poetry from the poems you have read in Units 4, 5, and 6. Metaphor: Romeo and Juliet, 1 Romeo compares Juliet to the sun. But soft what light through yonder window breaks. 2 Romeo compare Juliet’s eye to the bright stats. Two of the fairest starts in all the heaven having some business do entreat her eyes to twinkle in their spheres till they return. Simile: when the nurse says “I’ll warrant him, as gentle as a lamb” she is comparing Romeo to a lamb. Your love says, like an honest gentleman, and courteous and a kind and a handsome and I warrant a virtuous. The nurse is comparing Romeo again, this time to a honest courteous, kind, handsome and virtuous gentleman. Personification: Arise, fair sun, and kill the envious moon who is really sick and pale with grief that thou her maid art far than she. The grey-ey’d morn smiles on the frowning night, check’ring the eastern clouds with streaks of light; and flecked darkness like a drunkard reels from forth day; s path and titan’s fiery wheels. Onomatopoeia: kiss, gallop Imagery: in a vault, an ancient receptacle where for this many hundred years the bones of all my buried ancestors are packed; where bloody tybalt, yet but green in lies festering in his shroud. Sensory Language: Beautiful tyrant! fiend angelical!” For thou wilt lie upon the wings of night / Whiter than new snow on a raven’s back. / Come, gentle night, come, loving, black-brow’d night Rhyme: the entire prologue of Romeo and Juliet is a Rhyme. Two households, both alike in dignity. In fair Verona, where we lay our scene, Alliteration: Now old desire doth in his death-bed lie” what art thou drawn among these heartless hids Assonance: For man so old as we to keep the peace. My young lady asked for the nurse cursed in the pantry. Consonance: the repetition of the “w” sound, where, westward. Walking ware wood. Repetition: O Romeo, Romeo! Wherefore art thou Romeo? O woeful, O woeful, woeful, woeful day! 2. Cite examples from the texts you’ve read in Units 4, 5, and 6 to briefly explain the answers to the Big Questions. A. Unit 4: How does communication change us? We can talk to other and learn from them. When a natural disaster happens we can talk to the people that were there and the news can tells us what happened.
