  • Bryant Vs Dickinson - 1,367 words
    Bryant Vs Dickinson Emily Dickinson presents death in the poem "Because I Could Not Stop for Death" through the use of personification and the use of extended metaphor. William Cullen Bryant presents death through the use of the analogies in the poem "Thanatopsis." Although each poet presents death differently, the meanings are similar. In "Thanatopsis, " Bryant influences the reader to accept death as all living things' fate. Bryant explains death by nature's laws and the fact that nature's creatures must abide by these laws. In lines 26-28, Bryant explains how an individual must abide by these laws and surrender to the earth that nourished the living. "To be a brother to the insensible roc ...

    Dickinson #389 Emily Dickinson (#389) The speaker in Dickinsons poem is noticeably outside the main action of the poem. The first line makes that clear: Theres been a Death, in the Opposite House. Dickinson creates a patchwork story that the reader and speaker create through Dickinsons poem, based on outside clues and speculation. In Dickinsons poem, each stanza has a central focus; the focus is an action or an image, each one providing more certainty to the belief that there has been a death. These images and actions lead up to the eventual, haunting realization that there will be a funeral procession. Dickinson also cleverly plays with words, puns, and sound associations.

  • Dickinson And Hughes - 709 words
    Dickinson And Hughes After reading both "Tell All the Truth but Tell It Slant" by Emily Dickinson and "Harlem" by Langston Hughes, I determined that the main difference between the two poems is both poets use of diction. Dickinson makes use of abstract diction in her poem, using words like bright, delight, superb, and dazzle. Using the word "truth" in itself is an enormous abstraction. Hughes, however, uses more concrete diction, with words such as raisin, fester, sore, meat, and load. These are actual, physical things that exist. I see this as the most significant difference between the two poems. At first glance, Dickinsons poem made no sense to me. I then, however, tore it apart and came ...

    Emily Dickinson Emily Dickinsons Views on Death Emily Dickinsons views on death, as conveyed through her poetry, changed from poem to poem depending on her mood. Her writings also span over many years and one can see a progression in her thoughts on the subject of death as she matures as a person. Dickinson was not as interested in detail, but in the circumference of the idea. Many of her poems leave the reader lacking a definite answer to the issues of death brought up within the poems. As with most poetry, Dickinson often writes about subjects and activities that relate her thoughts in a roundabout way. For example, in her poem I Heard a Fly Buzz a dead observer watches a fly buzzing aroun ...

    Emily Dickinson Emily Dickinson is one of the most well known poets of her time. Though her life was outwardly uneventful, what went on inside her house behind closed doors is unbelievable. After her father died she met Reverend Charles Wadsworth.

It is also said that it was around 1812 when he was removed to San Fransico that she began her withdrawal from society. During this time she began to write many of her poems. She wrote mainly in private, guarding all of her poems from all but a few select friends. She did not write for fame, bu ...

  • Emily Dickinson And Harper Lee - 406 words
    Emily Dickinson And Harper Lee In a poem by Emily Dickinson she implies that there is nothing like reading a book to take your imagination to great places. She states, "There is no frigate like a book to take us lands away." Such an idea that excites the imagination to take us places is expressed in Harper Lees To Kill a Mockingbird. In To Kill a Mockingbird there is a great use of symbolism to ignite the human imagination. The title of the book is only mentioned in the story when the father of the protagonist, Atticus Finch, tells his children that if they have to kill birds, they can kill any bird, but "tis a sin to kill a mockingbird." Although this may seem peculiar, the use of symbolism ...
