Anachronism is a sensually gritty collection of poetry that is filled with sincerity, anger, trauma Matteucci holds nothing back. The poems are filled with a distinctly strong and beautiful personality. Words are used as weapons against injustice and superficiality and shallowness, as /5(8).   Answer Wiki. In some ways this is present in Harry Potter, given the lack of electricity, etc. in the wizarding world and the continued use of quill pens. Similarly the Percy Jackson/Heroes of Olympus books have a lot of ancient Greek/Roman stuff in modern times. Anachronism in Poetry John Keats, in his poem Ode on a Grecian Urn, makes use of anachronistic diction. Words like thee and thou are used in the poem very often, however they do not belong to the same period () and were used in earlier centuries.   The use of the name Pharaoh in the Book of Abraham easily fits the context of a royal household rather than singular person. At first, the Book of Abraham talks about the “god of Pharaoh,” “priest of Pharaoh,” the “court of Pharaoh,” all references to the position of Egypt’s rulership–specifically the “house.” This is correct usage for the time.
