Description:

This paper compares e. e. cummings' poem "somewhere I have never traveled, gladly beyond" and Robert Creeley's poem "I Keep to Myself such Measures." The paper examines how, through the use of a similar technique that uses physical terms and the use of words that suggest a physical state, these poets are able to encapsulate very powerful meaning and emotion.

From the Paper:

"It is clear that the images evoked by e. e. cumming's "somewhere i have never travelled, gladly beyond" and by Robert Creeley's "I keep to myself such measures" suggest a landscape. Each poet uses different styles of language, e. e. cummings being very descriptive and varying, and Robert Creeley being very minimalistic and unchanging. It is apparent that the suggested landscapes do not actually exist in reality, but instead are meant to evoke an emotional state, through the use of physical terms. The poets are similar in their ability to conjure various emotions through the use of physical language, but each poet has created very dissimilar landscapes and thus, dissimilar correlating emotions."
