Insert Surname 1 Student’s Name Instructor’s Name Course Date One Art by Elizabeth Bishop One art is a poem written by Elizabeth Bishop as one of the many of her works. Throughout the poem, Bishop is inspired, and she uses various formal strategies to give a structure on the contemplations on misfortune. The structure of the sonnet requires that the first and third lines of the first verse be utilized on the other hand as the third line holds back for the verses that follow until the final one. One Art takes the length that is usually a poetic pattern (Thoss, 2016). Just like the various authors of villanelles, she alters some parts of the retrograded lines as opposed to retrograding decisively. Bishop successfully uses various poetic elements to write about the loss she encountered of a very important person and discusses the loss as an art that isn’t hard to master. The poem uses a tone that can be described as a light, conversational tone suggesting that the author is indifferent regarding misfortune. The audience does not strain to realize that losing keys isn’t a tragedy. Nevertheless, the rundown collects and ascents so rapidly that it becomes difficult to keep on believing uncritically what the author of the poem is talking about. The theme of inevitable loss by Bishop runs throughout this piece.
