The connection between a word and what it is describing is tested throughout her poem. She reminds us how a word can be used to describe many different things. She purposely throws you into thinking it could be anything that she never meant it to be. Dickenson metaphorically describes the train, never giving the name to which her poem so passionately describes. For the most part Emily sticks with iambic meter throughout her poem.
Print.’ The writer also did not include what form of the copy was used. The writer’s name, teacher, course code, and date is also missing in the beginning of the essay, with the writer’s last name and page number on the top right of the page. The information given and the things talked about hardly relates to the thesis, assuming there actually is a proper thesis. The thesis is seen as misleading and might as well be irrelevant to the whole essay, as the writer goes on to talk about the importance of STDs. The writer tries too hard to somehow find a way to relate their body paragraphs to their thesis, with little success.
They both used tone, but they were opposite. Wilbur wrote “the warping night air having brought the boom of an owl’s voice into her darkened room.” (Lines 1-2) By reading the very first lines of the poem, one can tell that the tone is mysterious, dark, and serious. Whereas Collins wrote “he told them that the Ice Age was really just the Chilly age.” (Lines 2-3) Collins is using a more informal approach and a light- hearted, satirical tone. After explaining the “Chilly age” Collins said that it was just a period of time when everyone had to wear sweaters. Both of the poems simplify the truth, or “sugar coat” it.
They either don’t tell you all the facts from the other side, or they just don’t acknowledge the other side of the story at all. In the stories “My side of the Matter,” “Sinking house,” and “Yellow Wallpaper,” from the anthology Points of View which includes different stories that show human nature, and how humans can have a different point of view to a story, and how it personally affects the story as well, sometimes disguising or exaggerating the truth. The short story “Sinking House” by T. Coraghessan Boyle, has two characters who tell the story from their own point of view. One of them, Muriel, a woman who suffers from the loss of her husband tries to cope with the death, and lets all of the water in her house run, not only sinking her own house but the whole neighborhood as well. As readers we also have different points of view of the story, we can either interpret the story as she did this because the sound of the water would distract her from the sad thoughts in her mind, drowning the thoughts with the water, or we can also interpret it as her wanting to forget about her husband and completely ignore his absence because she didn’t want him there either way.
The original work was a unique manuscript bound together with three other poems in which the author is unknown. Because the poem is thought of as a literary masterpiece and so little is known about its origin, speculations are made about where the idea came from and if the Gawain-poet could have combined all the different elements and structured such an impressive tale on his own. Today, translations of Sir Gawain and the Green Knight are an essential part of Arthurian and medieval literature and the Gawain-poet is recognized as an outstanding literary figure of his age. “If ye wyl lysten
It has no meter due to the way it is a story telling poem. In the second stanza Edward Thomas uses the repetition of still to represent winter in contrast with a few lines down, using words such and ‘warmth’ and ‘tenderness’ which are connotations with springtime.

Sophie Cannon March 9, 2014 English 133 Misconceptions of Robert Frost’s “The Road not Taken” The meaning of Robert Frost’s “The Road not Taken” can be interpreted several ways. However, Frost’s intent of the poem is often lost or misinterpreted. More times than not, this poem is printed on graduation cards with an attached message to “size the day” and “take the road less traveled.” These interpretations have lead this poem to become a cliché and steer away from Frost’s actual purpose for the poem. “The Road not Taken” is filled with different literary devices that uncover an alternative meaning of the poem. The opening line of the poem states that the speaker is standing before “two roads diverged in a yellow wood” (Frost line 1).
TJ Rigg Mrs. King English IA 27 Apr. 2009 The Controversial Poem: An Analysis of “The Road Not Taken” In today’s world, there are many people who consider themselves to be a one person, individual, or a loner. Examples of this include people who think that because they have a tattoo, piercing, or something of that nature, then that makes them their own unique person. Robert Frost’s “The Road Not Taken” is about being an individual whose choice has nothing to do with today’s version of an individual. Although this person is never completely identified, there are two possibilities as to who the character could be.
Comparisons have been made and it is my feeling that many of the parts of a tragedy are not met in this work. The lack of royalty and no true downfall of the heroine do not fit, but the moral dilemma and conflict does fit. Part of the reason it does not fit is by design.

In fact, in many ways, A Doll’s House was the antithesis of classic tragedy.
There is the use of subjectivity of dramatic persona. However, the poet doesn’t personalize himself ,he wears a mask of a dramatic character and that’s what can be called depersonalization. It is an Anti-Lyric poem as the poet doesn’t express his dramatic persona .He also uses stream of consciousness which is like an internal monologue . Browning’s “ My Last Duchess “ , reflects the new poetry .It’s considered as a New poetry through the use of Dramatic Monologue. He didn’t invent the dramatic monologue as it was used before in “to his coy mistress” but he brought the form a new level of complexity .
