Dickinson's "Because I Could Not Stop For Death" And "I Heard A Fly Buzz When I Died"
Words: 622 / Pages: 3

.... soul to another place, usually a heaven or a hell. In the fifth stanza, Death and the woman pause before "...a House that seemed A Swelling of the Ground- The Roof was scarcely visible- The Cornice in the Ground-" (913). Although the poem does not directly say it, it is highly probable that this grave is the woman's own. It is also possible the woman's body already rests beneath the soil in a casket. If this is at all accurate, then her spirit or soul may be the one who is looking at the "house." Spirits and souls usually mean there is an afterlife involved. It isn't until the sixth and final stanza where the audience obtains conclusive evid .....

Emily Dickenson And The Theme Of Death
Words: 621 / Pages: 3

.... vivid imagery in this poem functions to enhance the reader's perception of the poem. The following passage conveys a resplendent physical sense of coldness as someone is frozen to death: "This is the Hour of Lead-- Remembered, if outlived, As Freezing persons, recollect the Snow-- First--Chill--then Stupor--then the letting go--" The innovative diction in this passage creates an eerie atmosphere all by itself. The effect of this passage is reminiscent of the famous macabre monologue at the end of Michael Jackson's Thriller. Dickenson also excellently portrays the restlessness of the mourners in this following passage: "The Feet, mechanical, .....

My Interpretation Of Frost's "Birches"
Words: 871 / Pages: 4

.... causes the ice to move and crack certain parts of the bark, creating the crackling effect. "As the [ice] stir cracks and crazes their enamel." He also compares this image to that of breaking glass and compares it to the "dome of heaven" shattering. I enjoy how he offers such different interpretations for the appearance of the bark. My personal favorite is the shattering of the dome in heaven. I think this creates a vivid image for the reader. He goes on to say that once the branches are bent, they never return completely upright again, but they are so flexible that they never break. “You may see their trunks arching in the woods/ Years afterwar .....

Analysis Of The Poem "The Soldier" By Rupert Brooke
Words: 487 / Pages: 2

.... England in his ninth line by saying, "And think, this heart, all evil shed away." These are the words of a man who truly believes that his land is the greatest of good. Images in "The Soldier" are extremely strong and persuading. One image is the line "Gave, once, her flowers to love, her ways to roam." This line evokes images of a beautiful woman cherishing and caressing the man who stands at her side. Another line is "Washed by the rivers, blest by suns of home." This line creates a feeling of tranquillity and a unity with nature. Another line that evokes a feeling of peace and happiness is, "Her sights and sounds; dreams happy as her day." W .....

A Critical Analysis Of "The Parting" By Michael Drayton
Words: 861 / Pages: 4

.... version of his feelings. Often, he has to sum up in one line of the poem what he would normally have written a paragraph or more on. For example, "Shake hands forever, cancle all our vows" sums up very concisely the idea of the break being forever, with no possibility of a reconciliation, whilst also adding to the ease of understanding and therefore also to the meaning of the poem. Another constraint of the sonnet is the length of the lines themselves. In a sonnet, the rythem is always iambic pentameter, which means that there must always be ten syllables per line, with each second syllable being stressed. Where the author breaks this pattern, .....

Dulce Et Decorum Est: Analysis
Words: 1155 / Pages: 5

.... at them, and as a result of this, one of the platoon was fatally gassed. Owen has arranged the poem in three sections, each dealing with a different stage of this experience. He makes use of a simple, regular rhyme scheme, which makes the poem sound almost like a child's poem or nursery rhyme. This technique serves to emphasise the solemn and serious content, and the irony of “the old lie,” of the title. In stanza one, Owen describes the soldiers as they set off towards the army base camp after a spell at the battle front. His use of similes such as “Bent double, like old beggars,” and “coughing like hags,” help me to depict the soldier .....

Analysis Of "13 Ways Of Looking At A Blackbird"
Words: 571 / Pages: 3

.... symbolizes the thoughts and the consciousness of the blackbird. It is also a transition from the observer's perception to the blackbird's perception. In the second stanza, Stevens goes on to say that he was of “three minds, Like a tree, In which there are three blackbirds.” This was the first time he makes the connection between seeing the blackbird and him himself metaphorically being the blackbird. He makes this connection even more clear in the fourth stanza when he says that “A man and a woman Are one. A man and a woman and a blackbird are one." In the sixth stanza he goes back to being the poet observer as he watches the blackbird fly .....

"Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night": Death Through Repetition And Diction
Words: 563 / Pages: 3

.... stanzas, the final lines match. The final stanza combines the last lines from the odd and even-numbered stanzas for an additional line. This portrays the ongoing war between life and death. The old man went back and forth between life and death as the stanzas' last lines switched back and forth. In the end, the two last lines join together as the old man and his son accept that death is a part of life. Next, the references to "good men," "wild men," and "grave men" display the three basic stages of life: birth, life, and death. In stanza three, the stanza pertaining to "good men," the portion "the last wave by" depicts the old man's generation as .....

.... And the rain came out to play The sun was hidden for many days But once again the sky turned blue And all the little children came out To play, with the sky so blue With its pretty picture of laughter Haiku I went on a walk And saw all that I can see From flowers to trees The grass was bright green And the flow .....

Easter 1916 By William Yeats
Words: 462 / Pages: 2

.... splashing and other disruptions to the stream. These animals represent the pivotal uprisings and revolts made by the liberty seeking Irish rebels. A horse-hoof slides on the brim, And a horse plashes within it; The long-legged moor-cocks call; Minute by minute they live: The stone’s in the midst of it all (932) Here is an example of events supporting the stone’s cause, in which the overall constancy is maintained. This constant is the underlying strive of the stone to disrupt the stream enough to cause a response that will favor the stone’s well being, that is independence. Indeed the disturbances and splashing caused by the anima .....
