"I will arise and go now, and go to innisfree."
I - alone
Go - determination + repetition adds to the rhythm of the poem + links to start of poem.
Alliteration - adds determination + creates soft and gentle rhythm and mood.
Mood/tone of poem
Relaxed, gentle, peaceful, dreamlike, determination.
How rhythm created
1 - rhythm
2 - alliteration (creates soft and gentle rhythm and mood)
3 - repetition (links to start of poem)
4 - meter
"Nine bean rows will I have there, a hive for the honeybee,
And live alone in the bee-loud glade."
Alliteration - idyllic, perfect, tranquil, - imagining rural Ireland - alliteration creates soft and gentle rhythm and mood.
2nd stanza - uses "peace" twice
This creates repetition for emphasis on rhythm - repetition links to start of poem.
"Noon a purple glow"
Visually stunning (imagery)
"Cricket sings;" "linnet's wings."
"I hear lake water lapping with low sounds by the shore;"
He appeals to our sense of sound - alliteration (creates soft and gentle rhythm) - sibilance (gives smooth flow to poem)
- regularity of the lake water lapping is like a heat beat - it is emphasised by the regular rhyming scheme.
I - reminds us he is alone and its personal.
"I will arise a go now, for always night and day."
Determination connects the poem - the "I" reminds us the narrator is alone and its personal - repetition used links to start of poem.
"While I stand on the roadway, or on the pavements gray,"
I - reminds us he is alone and its personal - the penultimate line jolts us back into the drag of reality - twist in the poem.
