Traditionally, it is taught that death cares and waits for no one; ironically, he ‘kindly’ stops for her, portraying her as though they are going on a date. The speaker then said “‘the carriage held but just ourselves and Immortality’” (lines 3-4), these lines insinuates that they are going for a ride and that immortality is their driver or chaperon, whom she only acknowledges once throughout the entire ride. The reader is then transitioned into stanza too with the description of this ride. Speaker “‘We slowly drove- he knew no haste’” (line 5), these lines bring to the reader’s attention that death had no concept of time and space and moved very slowly. the speaker says “‘and I had put away my labor and leisure too, for his civility’”(lines 6-8), she
She describes him as kind and civil, someone for which she would “put away” (6) her “labour” and “leisure” (7), just to go on a carriage ride with. This is a ride which she is unprepared for. The temperature becomes cold as the sun sets and she is only wearing thin clothing; “only gossamer my gown/ my tippet only tulle” (15-16). This makes death seem attractive, someone whom the speaker could spend the rest of her ‘life’ with. However, “Immortality” is also capitalized and personified (4).
Because I Could Not Stop for Death Emily Dickinson “Because I Could Not Stop for Death,” tells the tale of Death calling upon the speaker as if he is a suitor. The speaker who is either to busy to stop, because she is living life, or because she sees death coming and is afraid. She accepts death as if he is a suitor coming to court and goes with him in the carriage. They are the only two in the carriage along with immortality who rides as a silent chaperone. Death drives slowly, going at his own pace perhaps, signifying how from the time a person is born they begin to die.
During their childhood, Vonnegut states that there was never any talk of love, just a playful and comfortable warmth between the two. Ironically, when the time comes when Catherine is getting married, is the time where both Newt and Catherine decide to express their love for each other. In the beginning of the story, Catherine claims that she is too busy planning her wedding and can't take a walk. Regardless of her farewells and excuses, us readers can see that she truly does love him enough to walk through the infinite colonnade of woods. Also, she does not feel guilty that she allowed Newt to kiss him and felt no guilt even though she is about to get married.Despite Catherine dismissing Newt's perceptions of her, she still ends up in his arms at the end of the story.
The Poem Because I could not stop for Death Because I could not stop for Death- He kindly stopped for me- The Carriage held but just Ourselves- And Immortality. We slowly drove- He knew no haste. And I had put away My labor, and my leisure too, For His Civility- We passed the School, where Children strove At Recess- in the Ring- We passed the Fields of Gazing Grain- We passed the Setting Sun- Or rather- He passed us- The Dews grew quivering and chill- For only Gossamer, my Gown- My Tippet- only Tulle- We paused before a House that seemed A Swelling of the Ground- The Roof was scarcely visible- The Cornice- but a Mound- Since then- ΄tis centuries- and yet each Feels shorter that the Day I first
In the fifth stanza “we paused before a house that seemed” she describes a house, but this house is the same place in the landscape or cemetery, and she describes this house because, she has obsession with of her house, but really it is the resting place and a travel to eternity. In the final stanza “since then tis centuries and yet” is since she died, its feel no longer a day is a significant of every day of her death. In this stanza "tis centuries" is a symbol in the centuries which means the time that it happens in that place are the years that they no longer have any meaning by that are always the same. These years are those which are going to carry it up to eternity. In this poem is a deal for death again and again.
He knows he will have to kill Mr. and Mrs. Coggio also, although they are not who he is after, but he enjoys their perfectionism. He never had a mother and father that loved him, or cared for him like they care for their children. He enjoys knowing all of their secrets, it gives him a feeling of control. He knows he can accomplish the task of taking their life because he says “their father is old, and bowlegged.” Their father is not a threat to his young and strong body.
Not one word will make you, where you are, turn in your day, or wake from your night toward me. The only gift I got to keep or give is what I've cried, floodgates let down to mourning for the dead chances, the end of being young, for everyone I loved who really died. I drank our one year out in brine instead of honey from the seasons of your tongue.

People like Mr. Summers, Mr. Graves and Mr. Martin being in charge of the lottery suggests that they are above everyone, which is not a characteristic of a democracy.

Mrs. Delacroix, obviously a friend and neighbor of Tessie, who just moments before [the stoning] was laughing with Tessie about her forgetfulness, and reassuring her that she was fine for her tardiness.
So already from the poems start the reader gets sympathy for the knight. In the two first stanzas, the scene of autumn is described: The grass stopped, no birds sing, squirrels and other animals have hoarded food to sustain them throughout winter, and the harvest is done. The writer makes the knight look so exhausted and miserable, by saying: So haggard and woebegone. By saying this, it makes the knight seem to be in a terrible condition: “And on the thy cheek a fading rose – the poet is comparing the color on his cheeks with a fast fading rose. The poet also says: I see a lily on thy brow – which means that the knight-at-arms forehead glistens with sweet like a lily (white).
