Confessions In Rhyme Essay Research Paper Charlotte

Confessions In Rhyme Essay, Research Paper

Charlotte mixing in with the sailors, is like a drop of gold paint in a bucket

of gray paint. Under all the pressure she must feel faint. No other drops of

gold paint to accompany her. Only a fraud. Gold on the outside, but hateful

clear on the inside. A fraud, trying to be a good captain, but less than the

sailors. Since the golden drop of paint is all alone, it blends in with the

gray. This relates to when Charlotte is coming aboard the Seahawk. Also it

relates to how she becomes one with the crew. This poem is modeled after my

poet?s work because Molly Peacock would use metaphors in her poems. She would

compare two things together to make one. Revenge For each sailor a flag has

fallen and surrender was pleaded, for each sailor a country was overpowered, for

each and every sailor a kingdom was conquered. Pain was planted into their

hearts and minds. A plan for revenge has just been born. Captain Jaggery has

made his last wish. His death wish… This relates to what happened after the

Rebellion, all reactions that became one. Everyone wants revenge! Rebellion The

captain worked them day and night for he had no mercy, because of this they had

a fight though hungry and very thirsty. In that fight two men had died or at

least it was thought to be when they found out one was alive they went on

happily. They tricked the captain and two of the crew into thinking that

Zachariah was dead, but all that was thrown overboard was some cloth in a

hammock bed. Because the captain thought he was dead his secret was very big.

Every day the sailors would bring him food while he was hiding in the brig. This

poem relates to the part of the novel when there is a big fight and two are

thought to be dead. It tells what happens before, during, and after the fight.

Captain?s Triumph The captain?s musket was once useless until the crew

became ruthless. Aiming at all insight, he pulled the trigger with all his might

After thinking he stole two people?s lives he collected the sailors? swords,

pistols, and knives. Now that he has a scar on his face, he thinks Miss Doyle is

a terrible disgrace. The captain?s rage was at a boil, because of the action

of Miss Doyle. Since she hated the captain and he hated her too, She became a

member of the Seahawk crew. This poem relates to the rebellion. It also relates

to the relationship between Charlotte Doyle and Captain Jaggery. Maximum With

fire in their eyes, regret in their minds, and doubt on their faces, they put

her to the test. Can she climb the royal main mast up and down? In one whole

piece. All in one test. Can she sail with the best, live with the men, rough up

her hands and try it again. This relates to when she?s becoming one of the

crew. Also it relates to the test Charlotte has to pass. Struggle It?s the

struggle to get to the top, do not look down or you might drop! Choose to shimmy

up the mast or take the ladder, both ways are fine, neither one is faster.

I?ve reached the top! I feel like a bird about to fly, either that or a human

about to die. This is the test that Charlotte had to take, climb up there and

put her life at stake. This relates to the part of the story when Charlotte

Doyle has to take the test to become one of the crew. She was Struggling but she

made it in the end. Truth On this day a stark truth came to her, she was where

no proper young lady should be. With nobody of her proper station here, She had

felt very queer. Since the captain was very mean, she knew not from good and

bad. So she didn?t sail as a Miss, she sailed as a Lad. The poem relates to

when she became part of the crew and became a mister in the captain?s book.

Hurricane Brig Charlotte Doyle would never give up, but when the hurricane came,

Charlotte took a drop. She hardly got any sleep and was accused of murder, so

now she is in the brig talking with Zachariah. Now knowing that her friend was

alive, she was very happy, but since she was still mad at the captain, her

attitude was very crappie. This relates to he hurricane scene in the book. This

also relates to the murder accusation scene in the book. First Night Though the

first night she felt very sadly, when offered some tea felt delighted and happy.

When given a dirk by the kitchen?s cook, she felt very scared. Although, she

soon discovered it was only for her to bewared. After a few days rebellion is

what she feared. And to be a part of it she never dared. This poem relates to

her first night on the Seahawk. Then goes on to the other days in that week.

Murder Query Who had stolen the knife? Who was where at the time of the crime?

Who decided to take Mr. Hollybrass? life? Who is to blame? All suspects are

the same. The Captain is to blame. The Captain is an animal untamed. He tried to

pin it on Doyle, ?cause his anger is at a boil! This poem relates to when

Charlotte is accused of murder. It also relates to when they have a trial to

discover if she is guilty or not. TAKE HEART Poems By: Molly Peacok Blank Paper

This poem is about a girl who?s inheritance is just blank pieces of paper. On

the paper her name was not mentioned like other names of family members. She

said the blank paper has the life she tried to restore after feeling like a

nobody. She thinks the true gift of inheritance is to recreate her past. She is

going to ?re-blanken? her life and fill it in with the right life

experiences. I think this poem is fantastic. It is creative and well written and

is also realistic. I like the way that the poet expressed so much in such a

short poem, she had a problem and a solution. I think it takes a great writer to

do something like that. I also liked the way that she entitled her poem because

the title ?Blank Paper? means the paper might as well be blank to the poet

because her name has been excluded, it also means that her life is like a blank

slate that she must now fill in. The Valley of the Monsters This poem is about

the author?s life experiences. She is comparing a fictional valley of monsters

to her childhood. The fictional valley of monsters is a place where rocks form

into monsters? shapes. In her real life experience it was the minds of her

family that were formed into monstrous shapes. Both the stone statues and minds

of her family were very permanent. When she wrote this she was comparing the

monsters to shapes in the clouds that people pointed at and made fun of. She

said that the rocks that form the fictional valley of monsters are statues meant

for tourist attractions, but the valley of monster she grew up in was tough

slice of life that became part of her normal existence. The monsters in her life

were ?two dinosaurs… guzzling beer and crushing the cans with their scaly

thumb-equivalents.? This poet is creative in the way she compared fictional

and non-fictional matters of consequence in one poem. I like the way that this

poem is partly realistic and partly unrealistic. If you really think about the

poem it is very sad, especially since it is partially biographical. I liked the

way that she used so many metaphors to compare the two subjects. It was kind of

like a mystery to figure out what she was trying to say. That is why I did not

understand the poem at first. I have never read a poem that was more original.

THE BOOK OF LIGHT Poems By: Lucille Clifton Thel This poem is about a landscape

called Thel. The author said that it was her first landscape, probably meaning

where she was born. She described it mahogany as the clay of Georgia. This is

also about a woman who has sweet attic of a mind, a safe place to keep of old

songs. There was music inside her; she would sit down, shy as ever, humming

alone among broken promises and among sweet broken bodies of birds. This is the

type of poem known as ?short and sweet.? This poem is one of the shortest

written in The Book of Light. Although this poem is short it is quite sweet. It

is as if Lucille Clifton?s words just make you imagine what is happening. Even

though this poem is beautiful and short, I bet if she added more details and

story line, then she would have just as beautiful a poem. Imagining Bear This is

a poem basically about imagining things about somebody. It seems to be a bear,

but could possibly be a human. In this poem the author is imagining him too tall

and too fat to enter into the parlors. She imagines his hide as tough and his

walking clumsy, with his grown filling the wind. ?Give him an old guitar, give

him a bottle of booze,? she said. The author gets you to imagine his children

and his wife sighing and laughing. We imagine him singing and his granddaughter

remembering him in poems. The first time that I read this poem I thought that

this poem was about a man. I thought this poem was about a man. I thought this

because in the poem she always addresses the character as him. Also she would

mention his children, his wife and his granddaughter in the poem. She said

?Give him an old guitar, give him a bottle of booze.? Those are thing that

men use! The second time I read the poem I thought the author was comparing a

man to a bear. The words that she used in her poem are what made me think that.

She would say things like ?imagine his hide gruff, the hair on him grizzly

even to his own hand.? Or, ?Imagine him lumbering as he moves. I imagine his

growl filling the wind.? Alas, the third time I thought it could be a man or

bear and that the poet wanted to demonstrate the similarities in both.
