Text analysis “Song” by Christina Georgina Rossetti Approaching Literary Genres p. 53 Millennium
FOCUS ON THE MEANING 1.Which situation does the poet imagine? Whom does she address? She imagines being dead and addresses her lover, asking him not to sing sad songs for her nor to plant roses on her tomb. 2.Is the woman sure about her lovers feelings? No, she isn’t. She says “If thou wilt, remember / and if thou wilt, forget”. She considers the possibility that her lover might decide to forget her.
FOCUS ON THE GENRE Parallelism= In rhetoric, parallelism refers to using elements in sentences that are grammatically similar or identical in structure, sound, meaning, or meter. In other words, it means giving two or more parts of the sentences a similar form so as to give the passage a definite pattern. This technique adds symmetry, effectiveness and balance to the written piece.
