4: TPCASTT ANALYSIS Ode to the West Wind By Percy Bysshe Shelley I O wild West Wind, thou breath of Autumn's being, Thou, from whose unseen presence the leaves dead Are driven, like ghosts from an enchanter fleeing, Yellow, and black, and pale, and hectic red, Pestilence-stricken multitudes: O thou, Who chariotest to their dark wintry bed The winged seeds, where they lie cold and low, Each like a corpse within its grave, until Thine azure sister of the Spring shall blow Her clarion o'er the dreaming earth, and fill (Driving sweet buds like flocks to feed in air) With living hues and odours plain and hill: Wild Spirit, which art moving everywhere; Destroyer and preserver; hear, oh hear!
5: T: An ode to a beautiful western landscape that has a wind P: I think that Percy is talking about death and how death is everywhere, but he is also talking about heaven. I think this because in the third stanza it says "The winged seeds, where they lie cold and low" which could represent angels. C: In line 3 he uses a similie. "Are driven like ghosts, from an enchanter fleeing" this is a simille for how people run from death or this "wind". In line 8, he also uses a simile for how each winged seed is like a corpse within its grave. This could mean that angels are at a stand-still waiting in their grave. In line 5 there is metonomy because pestilence is another word for disease. Also in throughout the entire poem there is rhyme. Some questions I had were why can the wind not be a good thing? Why did Percy not point out the good things that come from winds like carrying seeds for crops? Did he not realize the happy points of the wild winds?? Why is he so negative? I think that the thing that he is celebrating is not happy or joyful at all and that it is the exact opposite. Its cold and dark and the poem is very sad, which is something most people don't celebrate.
6: T: the title might symbolize a disease or epidemic that sweeps over a nation or part of a nation. | A: The attitude in this poem is very meloncholy. In the first and second stanza, its dark and sad, but in the third and fourth it is happy. Then in the fifth again it is midly upsetting. S: There is a shift between the first two stanzas; from sadness to mild happiness. This same shift occurs from the fourth stanza to the fifth. T: The theme of this poem is a disease or epidemic. T: The title could mean that the wind is a a sweeping epidemic throught the west.
8: ODE | Ode to the Earth The sun shines bright and bold, yet the wind is hard and cold. While the wind makes me shiver, The bee's buzz which makes me quiver. The crisp air sitngs my cheeks, the winter could go on for many weeks. The leaves begin to fall apart, And disperse into anothers heart. And yet the pine stays together, Leaves and needles together forever. Though the waves slowly come and go, The sand stays. doesn't even blow. The clear blue sky stays cloudless and white, The storm clouds are out of sight. The rain drips off the branches, But life keeps giving many more chances. To stand around in the cloud-filled sky, And always makes us wonder why.
9: NARRATIVE | I didn't do it. "Hey" I screeched and stomped my feet I did not do this crime you seek. He is the one you desire to verbally punish and again inquire Why he did such a terrible thing, and how he made the bomb go ding. Because honestly the cookies weren't all bad At least the ones I took from Dad.
