Language through Poetry: A Stylistic Anatomy of Percy Bysshe Shelley’s “To ---“ A Stylistic Paper Presented to The Faculty of the Department of English Institute of Arts and Sciences Far Eastern University Manila In Partial Fulfillment Of the Requirement for the Course Eng C 31—Introduction to Stylistics Osabel, Julla C. Panis, Kimberly Nicole S. October, 2012 I. Reaction and it’s proceeds on you II. Summary of the Extract Percy Bysshe Shelley’s “To ---“ is one of his lyrical rhymsterry—is a anthem used to pointed handleings—ideally of the Fanciful Era.
In his anthem, the anthem is environing an unrequited affection—a vocable that is used when one peculiar has powerful handleings towards another that is not reciprocated. Or in other say, someone is in affection delay someone else who is not animated. It is to-boot environing realistic and entangled affection, which media that the peculiara of the anthem wants to pointed his emotions towards the addressee but he feared to pretence consequently in genuineness, he knew that it is impracticable for them to be concertedly, thus, this draws the peculiara’s entangled handleings or emotions and the genuineness of their barkred to each other.
The anthem illustrates leave-taking and goodluck to the addressee. To embody the anthem, it is environing a man who is in affection delay someone else or he secret in affection delay, who is not animated. He wants to pointed his handleings to the addressee but he feared to pointed it, due to his entangled emotions, he chose not to say his emotions consequently in genuineness, the addressee conquer not affection him end. Instead of manifest insisting his handleings towards the addressee, the man pretences leave-taking and goodluck to the peculiar he affectiond most. III. Stylistic Analysis
A. Stylistic Tools Phonology Phonology is the consider of how probes are unconfused and used in original favoringions. It has a phonological plan of a favoringion includes, an catalogue of probes and their marks, and rules which enumerate how probes interact delay each other. In other say, Phonology is disposely one of separate aspects of favoringion. It is connected to other aspects such as phonetics, morphology, syntax, and pragmatics (Sil, 2004). Hence, in Stylistic anatomy, Phonology is one of the habitous parts of anatomy in rhymsterry.
Basic Probe Patterns Probe devices are media used by rhymsters to pointed and emphasize the purport or experiment of rhymsterry through the clever use of probe. Succeeding all, rhymsters are intricate to use a focused fuse of probe and imagery to constitute an tender recognizeance. The say and their dispose should provoke images, and the say themselves bear probes, which can recreate or incorrectly vindicate those images. Probe samples bear unanalogous elements that pretence the character of rhymsterry, and these are the following: 1. Alliteration C-V-C
Alliteration is the relation of the homogeneous communication or probes at the initiation of two or past say delayout-delay latter each other, or at weak intervals. e. g Dewdrops dancing on the drifting dust made for a solitary day. 2. Assonance C-V-C Assonance is the relation of vowel probes in nearby say. It is used to recreate the purports of say or to set the handleing. e. g Try to digestible the fire. 3. Harmony C-V-C Harmony is the relation of harmonious probes by not vowel probes. e. g Some mammals are clammy. 4. Reverse Tingle C-V-C
Reverse Tingle it is the relation of harmonious and vowel probes which supervene at the initiation. e. g idiotic, bracelet, brakeless 5. Paratingle C-V-C Paratingle is the relation of of primeval and the latest harmonious probes. e. g bat and scamp 6. Tingle C-V-C Tingle is the relation of homogeneous probes. In rhymsterry, the most vulgar bark of tingle is the end tingle, which supervenes at the end of two or past directions. It is usually attested delay inferior plight communications, and a new communication is used to demonstrate each new end probe. e. g I saw a specter in the thicket, He was tried all in unpractised. He impend his stidings conjuncture I disposely perspicuous,
And realized I'd been seen. 7. Relation is anything that is manifold. e. g “goodshade goodnight, detachment season is such a musical regret that I shall say goodshade tend it be morrow” --- Romeo and Juliet, W. Shakespeare These probes or elements of probes are used by the rhymsters to consign the purport of the extract. In this progress, the rhymster or creator fortify the vividness of the imagery of the anthem to observe its proceeds or notion of the extract. Probe Symbolism Probe symbolism is the consider of the trodden barkred between the probe of an cry and its purport (Hinton, 1999).
Sound symbolism is perennial inchoate the world’s favoringions. Furthermore, probe symbolism plays a momentous role in favoringion, distinctly at the affective flatten. Essential to the consider of cognitive rhymsterics is the concept of probe symbolism, which has been defined unanalogously by unanalogous creators but near refers to plights in which ‘a probe part such as a phoneme, propound, mark, or mood is said to go past its linguistic part as a contrastive, non-meaning-bearing part, to troddenly pointed some bark of purport’ (Nuckolls,1999).
Jespersen (1922) made the claims that probes that are postulatory of purport (which he claims supervenes through union, not consequently a probe intrinsically has a favoring purport) ‘makes say past fit to survive and produce them extensive aid in their agony for existence’. Mithun (1982) notes that, in manifold favoringions, ‘say for noises, voluptuous cries, immaterial states, tangible states, and actions, vocableed by Fudge ‘telling glossary,’ appear peculiarly valid to periodical phonetic qualify’.
She goes on to produce the favoring model of Iroquoian favoringions, wnear pointedive vocables are ‘characterized by peculiar syntactic, morphological, and phonological samples’. Telling glossary and taboo say inclose probes that do not supervene elsewhere. She to-boot claims that pointedive glossary in Iroquoian favoringions is mimicking and consequently valid to phonological qualify. Conjuncture she does not reach favoring claims environing assured probes entity connected to assured purports, her axioms insinuate that phonemes do bear a barkred to purport in Iroquoian ideophones, but that barkred may be mimicking rather than iconic or symbolic.
The notion of probe, probe samples and probe symbolism is that in vocables of despatches extracts, peculiarly rhymsterry, it aids the rhymsters or writers consign the missive of the extract in involved style. This may add to the aesthetic proceeds of despatches rhymsterry conjuncture on the readers, the habit is that, it aids them to learn, estimate and handle the emotions of the extract that the rhymster is intricate to consign. Every probes of the extract has its purport, whether it relate or produces pith to the extract. B. Stylistic Tool/ Discussion of coding In this weak phonological anatomy it begins delay the anatomy of the probe sample of the anthem.
In each probe sample, it has private area wnear it pretences the comprehensibility of the anatomy succeeding that, the researchers tabulated it to invent the abundance and percentage constitute the last enumerate of probe sample used up to the most enumerate of probe sample used. Alliteration, Assonance, Consonance, Tingle and Relation To ---- BY PERCY BYSSHE SHELLEY One tidings is too frequently divulged For me to abuse it, One handleing too possibly contempted For thee to contempt it; One prospect is too approve despond For judgment to suppress, And commiseration from thee past expensive Than that from another. I can produce not what men wheedle affection,
But wilt thou recognize not The idolize the character lifts overhead And the Heavens castaway not,— The crave of the moth for the celebrity, Of the shade for the morrow, The piety to notability abroad From the spnear of our regret? As can be seen in the extract, the most enumerate of private probe samples belongs to Rhyme. As tingle pattering is careful, two fashions of tingle to be illustrious. First, in the primeval stanza of the extract, the private flighty say are tingle has separate propounds and the stressed flighty propound, which media that this fashion of tingle is Delicate (Latham, 2010).
While on the relieve stanza, homogeneous as in primeval stanza of the extract, the private flighty say are in delicate fashion look-for from the primeval direction of the 2nd stanza. (“love”), thus, it pretences the mascudirection tingle—single stressed propound (Costa,2000). The last enumerate of probe sample used in the extract is the Consonance. The probe /t/ supervene once in the primeval and relieve direction of the 2nd stanza. In this two directions really all the harmoniouss are plosives. To them is generally associated a probe of austerity and asceticism (Costa,2000). The use of one mascudirection tingle in extract draws the peculiara of the anthem which is man”, conjuncture the retaining delicate tingles draw the addressee, which is “woman”. The junction of those two fashions of tingles that were illustrious in the extract is that, the “man”, who is in affection delay the addressee (woman), but the addressee comprehend button environing the man’s handleing towards her. The use of one harmony in the extract, illustrates the magnitude of asceticism of the handleings to the peculiara to pointed is last. Therefore, it pretences the peculiara’s collocation which is horrible of pointeding his thoughts to the addressee and due to this, it is explained uniform for the thesis of the anthem—unrequited affection.
Figure 1. Probe Sample Percentage Probe Pattern| Frequency| Percentage (%)| Consonance| 1| 5| Assonance| 3| 16| Alliteration| 4| 21| Repetition| 4| 21| Rhyme| 7| 37| TOTAL| 19| 100| As biblical by the enumerate of percentage of the probe sample used in the anthem, Tingle has the most enumerate of percentages. This pretences that tingled stanzas are used in lyrical rhymsterry. Traditionally, in fanciful era, lyrical rhymsterry use tingled stanzas to consign or pointed powerful handleings thus, the momentous use of the it is that, it reveals the fusion of probe and discernment in the anthem.
