    POETIC LANGUAGE IN NAZARETH’S “LOVE HURTS”

    Get PDF
    This study is concerned with how language is poetically used in one of Nazareth’s song lyrics, “Love Hurts”. The language encompasses a series of figures of speech. This study was performed as an alternative practice in teaching English poetry. Figures of speech intrinsically compose English poetry. Because the figures of speech contain implied meaning, they might not be easily meaningful to a reader of the lyric. This study is intended to describe the figures of speech so that the language becomes more understandable to the reader. This study applies a textual analysis, and it adopts Leech’s linguistic guide to English poetry. The linguistic guide includes absurdity in the language of poetry; transference of meaning; and over and counter statement. The discussion works on each of the lyric’s lines, and it results in the series of figures of speech, comprising oxymoron, paradox, synecdoche, metaphor, metonymy, hyperbole, litotes, and irony. The figures of speech indicate that the language is arranged to sweetly sound a melody. Besides that, the figures of speech indicate that the language is also used figuratively to contain the meaning. In other words, in the lyric, the language was used not only to be sung melodically, but it was also used to be written poetically

    Get PDF
    As in other early language traditions, premodern English poetry was written out with very light punctuation. The sparsity of manuscript punctuation appears especially problematic in the period before 1200, when poetry in English lacked visual linebreaks. The difficulties of parsing this poetry are substantial. Modern editors of Old English verse must decide, on a case-by-case basis, where clauses end and how verses relate to one another syntactically. This paper grapples with the consequences of this situation. The paper has two sections: Challenges and Strategies. The first section is descriptive, and the second is analytical
