One Art By Elizabeth Bishop

Created by Lauren Jones

One Aspect of my Literary Analysis


  • A villanelle is a 19-lined fixed form poem that has repeating lines and is composed in five three lined stanzas.
  • It usually concludes with a closing quatrain that ends in a rhyming couplet.
  • The repetition duplicates and divides the main moral in this poem and seeks to provide the readers with the impact of how writing and losing are "one art"

Question seeking to answer

  • How the repetition within the poem creates the story like stanzas to effectively create the mood and tone Elizabeth seeks to convey

Support Quotes

  • “the art of losing isn’t hard to master;
so many things seem filled with the
intent to be lost that their loss is no disaster” (Bishop).

  • “Lose something every day. Accept the fluster of lost door keys, the hour badly spent. The art of losing isn’t hard to master. Then practice losing father, losing faster: places, and names. And where it was you meant to travel. None of these will bring disaster”( Bishop)

Highlight From My Project

  • The rhyming within this poem is what makes it such a fascinating form of literature. The repetition duplicates and divides the main moral in this poem and seeks to provide the readers with impact of how writing and losing are one art. The style of using repetition is a common traditional way to convey a message or moral in a story in a creative way.
