1 The Raven Musical Devices Presented by: 陈玉燕

2  Poe’s strong belief about poetry  The function of musical devices  Musical devices used in The Raven  My opinions towards Poe’s writing style

3 Poe’s strong belief about poetry  A conscientious artist  Art for art’s sake  Literature should focus on style and use of languages  Literature is for enjoyment  Three elements: beauty, purity, melody  “poem is the rhythmical creation of beauty”

4 “ We have taken it into our heads that to write a poem simply for the poem's sake, and to acknowledge such to have been our design, would be to confess ourselves radically wanting in the true poetic dignity and force …” ----The Poetic Principle, by Edgar Allan Poe

5 The function of musical devices 诗歌是一种文学精品,格律诗是内容与 格律形式并重的诗。在这里,形式并不是内 容的 “ 束缚 ” ,而是其恰如其分的合理载体。 什么是神韵?对我来说,格律诗的格律就是 其神韵中的一个要素。 …… 黄杲炘

6  Thyme: 尾韵  Repetition: 重复  Refrain: 叠句  Alliteration: 头韵  Internal rhyme: 行内韵  Feet: 步 / 节  Meter: 律

7  Form the poetic beauty  Beautify the sound effect  Reflect the ethical feature, the Zeitgeist ( 时代精 神 ), the mood of the poem, the writing style of the poet

8 Musical devices used in The Raven A.Rhyme: over many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten lore, … as of some one gently rapping at my chamber door, ‘tis some visitor’, I muttered, tapping at my chamber door…(stanza 1, P 39)

9 B.Internal rhyme: a.Ah, distinctly I remember it was in the bleak December, b.… Eagerly I wished the morrow;--vainly I had sought to borrow From my books surcease of sorrow— sorrow for the lost Lenore…(stanza 2, P 39)

10 C.Alliteration: weak and weary rare and radiant thrilled me and filled me grim, ungainly, gaunt …

11 D.Repetition a.“nevermore” b.… Tis some visitors entreating entrance at my chamber door Some late visitors entreating entrance at my chamber door…(stanza 3, P39)

12 E.Meter: iambic ?? anapaestic ???

13 My opinions towards Poe’s writing style  Mannerism, sing—song  “Jingle man” -- called by Emerson  A genius  A real poetry maker  Words and melody’s perfect combination

14 Thank you!!!
