Images and Their Implications in Elizabeth Bishop's Poetry
- Elizabeth Bishop; poetry; images; Emily Dickinson
Elizabeth Bishop was one of the most influential and important poets in the 20th century in the United States. She is an American poet laureate and won the Pulitzer Prize. Her works have been paid more and more attention by scholars at home and abroad. Bishop's poetry based on traditional American poetry, following Dickinson, Stevens, and Mary Moore, uses a similarly reliable technique to express more clearly personalized rhetorical position than peer poets including Lowell and Berryman... Her poems are full of imagination and music rhythms. With the precise expression of language and the perfection of forms, moral allegiance and new ideas are combined to express confidence in upholding justice and a sense of responsibility of poets. Bishop's style of poetry is rigorous, deep in imagery, more precisely, inseparable from objective perceptions and moral illusions. In her poetry, language, skills, and imagery all come together in harmony to produce a very high artistic effect. Her poems are refined and precise, but the internal meaning of the expression is very vague. Therefore, her poetry has a large number of rich and vivid images. The true meaning of poetry is often left to the reader to understand.
