Analysis and comments on In Honour of that High and Mighty Princess, Queen ELIZABETH by Anne Bradstreet

Comment 1 of 1, added on July 22nd, 2008 at 2:38 PM.

In the poem, the author approached the language poorly. When trying to pull
off the classic form, you can immediately tell that the works are forced,
not effortless as they should be. It reads like the words and phrases were
hands picked out of one of Shakespeares sonnets or plays. And at times are
not even used properly and could of used different text and made the work
sound brilliant. The Elizabethan language is not just something you pick a
few words out of. You need to know the language fluently like if you were
to learn french before you even touch it. Here you can tell the author
doesn't even know the general poetics of the language.
