poem sound and sense
Poem: “Sound and Sense”

True ease in writing comes from art, not chance, 
As those move easiest who have learned to dance. 
'Tis not enough no harshness gives offense, 
The sound must seem an echo to the sense: 
Soft is the strain when Zephyr gently blows, 
And the smooth stream in smoother numbers flows; 
But when loud surges lash the sounding shore, 
The hoarse, rough verse should like the torrent roar; 
When Ajax strives some rock's vast weight to throw, 
The line too labors, and the words move slow; 
Not so, when swift Camilla scours the plain, 
Flies o'er the unbending corn, and skims along the main. 
Hear how Timotheus' varied lays surprise, 
And bid alternate passions fall and rise! 

Alexander Pope

poem s connection
Poem’s Connection
  • One of the major unifying principles of art and literature in the 18th century was nature. This poem relies heavily on nature metaphors and imagery from nature.
  • The poem has imagery of smooth streams, ocean shores, and plains of corn. All of these images are inspired by the nature that was found in the new territories.
