When i am dead, my dearest Presentation Transcript

  • 1. WHEN I AM DEAD, MY DEAREST By Christina Rossetti
  • 2. When I am dead, my dearest,Sing no sad songs for me;
  • 3. Plant thou no roses at my head,Nor shady cypress tree:
  • 4. Be the green grass above meWith showers and dewdrops wet;
  • 5. And if thou wilt, remember, And if thou wilt, forget.
  • 6. I shall not see the shadows,I shall not feel the rain;
  • 7. I shall not hear the nightingaleSing on, as if in pain:
  • 8. And dreaming through the twilightThat doth not rise nor set,
  • 9. Haply I may remember,And haply may forget.
  • 10. Grief of those who lost their loved oneDoes not want to be missedForgetting would be happier
  • 11. -Born in Victorian Era- Surrounded by the Arts- Imitated favorite poets- As a woman, was not appreciated- Later extremely renowned- Poetry dealt with loss-Does not want to be missed orbecome a painful memory-No need to hold them close
  • 12. Sibilance – Allowing the poem to read on without interruptionBe the green grass above meWith showers and dewdrops wet; And dreaming through the twilight That doth not rise nor set, Repetition of the S soundAlliteration – The repetition ofa sound or consonant shady cypress green grass sad songs
  • 13. Metaphors – To speak of one thing in place of another I shall not see the shadows, I shall not feel the rain; I shall not hear the nightingale Sing on, as if in pain: Poets senses have shut down completely.
  • 14. - Born to the Victorian Era - High Mortality Rate
  • 15. - From four weeks to four years- Black clothes only- Cannot forget
