Joe Lipsey III 11/15/2010 ENG. 297 Final Exam Part 1 Part 1: 1) Imagery in “Heat” by H.D. The first three lines of this poem allude to the wind being forceful, and since the rend means to separate into parts with force or violence it causes the reader to actually try and picture the wind as if to physically see it. The wind isn't usually thought of as sharp enough to cut something as if it were a knife or something of that sort. Also, heat is not usually thought of as something that you are able to touch or grab or even hold. It is something you feel, however the diction used in the poem allows the reader to somehow envision the wind cutting the heat in half. When I read this the first time through I pictured a stick of butter being cut by a knife; it is the only tangible idea that I felt could illustrate the idea of the wind and the heat. The meaning of this poem is to illustrate the desperateness of the poet for the heat to be subdued, which is better understood because of the imagery of the poem.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
