In the poems Hawk Roosting and Golden Retrievals, Ted Hughes and Mark Doty, respectively, gift differing views of the world from the perspectives of two different animals. Hughes depicts a haggle as omnipotent, cunning, and sharp in its actions and motives whereas Doty conveys the animal perspective finished a golden reco actually depicted as carefree and joyful. Through utilization of poetical devices, two authors offer contrasting characterizations of the two animals and distinct perspectives of the world. Through use of poetic devices, Hughes and Doty, respectively, characterize the vend and the golden retrieval in different lights to in the long run reveal the animals views on themselves. Hughes poem, the Hawk Roosting, features a self-obsessed and demanding Hawk. The author characterizes the hawk through the use of first person point of view. The use of personal pronouns mine, my, and I furthers the authors point that the Hawk believes the world revolves around it and it alone. It seems forgetful to the importance of the world around it. It takes on the position of a queen the hawk presides over everything. Furthermore, the Hawk never seems to mention any new(prenominal) living beast. As far as it is concerned, every some other creature is entirely irrelevant and has no place in the world. Moreover, the hawk sees itself as a God- identical creature. The hawk may kill where it pleases and in the most unbalanced manner,...tearing off heads. The hawk seems to have declared itself grim reaper at this point in the poem. The hawk has no one to answer to and thence does and plans accordingly. It almost brags to the audience about its unique ability of killing other creatures in the most brutal way possible it enjoys the viciousness of... ...ife, demonstrating that military personnel also calculate and systematically plan for the future, collectively trying to be the best of the best at all times much like the hawk. Hughes systematic hawk makes Dot ys golden retrieval seem very much lost and distracted as each day passes. The hawk would like nothing more than to fly alone and dictate the universe, whereas the quest after simply travels with his master as nothing more than a companion. The hawk recognizes the world around him with a callous superciliousness and deliberate overture for the future while the dog lives in the present and concentrates on the small, tho valuable things in life. Both animals live their lives differently and individually as benignants do. The utilization of an animals point of view is ended completely in both poems as the poets connect the animals thought processes to that of the human race.
