In Robert Frost’s poem, the imagery brings about a sad and depressing mood. In the line, “I have looked down the saddest city lane.” You can observe that the character is taking in his surroundings, which prove to be gloomy and depressing. It almost shows that he has a very negative outlook on life, like he’s stuck in a state of depression. On the other hand, in Dickinson’s poem the imagery brings about a state of confusion almost as if the narrator is lost in the darkness. This can be seen in “The Bravest – grope a little – And sometimes hit a Tree Directly in the Forehead – But as they learn to see –” This line shows that the narrator is lost in the night and doesn’t know where to go, due to the inability to see anything in the dark.
It is purely human nature to be disturbed by the slowest of all runners, Death. Seeing the impermanence of the world about them, humanity is not used to the finality of death, and is therefore confused by it. Walt Whitman also felt this loss of direction when Abraham Lincoln died, and he dealt with it by writing “When Lilacs Last in the Dooryard Bloom’d.” In this poem, Whitman incorporates Lincoln’s legacy and his won personal feelings through the vivid imagery of lilacs and the symbolism of the hermit thrush. Whitman’s elegy bears many commonalities to Lincoln’s life. At the beginning of both the poem and Lincoln’s life, he was born on a farm, “near an old farmhouse” (Whitman 12).

Since the prison is a place of darkness and sin, the beauty of a wild rose bush growing in such an unexpected place symbolizes God's grace. By starting off with a prison door and beautiful rosebush, Hawthorne is letting us know that the issues punishment versus forgiveness and judgment versus grace are going to be super important. Like I said earlier even though Hester went through many hardships she was able to overcome and bloom just like a rosebush would. The Scarlet Letter is a dark book at the beginning because the setting of the prison makes me think of sadness. When the prison is being described Hawthorne names everything that makes it such a sad place.
3.05 Fascination with Fear Part A The theme I developed from Edgar Allan Poe’s “The Premature Burial” is Man must ignore the darker possibilities in life in order to survive. Examples from the text include the narrators experience he told about in the story. He awoke to the smell of dirt, nothing but darkness, the feeling of wood all around him, and silence of a sea that overwhelms. Since he cannot open the coffin he thinks he is in, he realizes that he must have fallen under an attack catalepsy in the presence of people who knew not of his condition.

It has a strong message but it leaves people feeling depressed and fearing death. Making the mood of the poem depressing, Frost is able to get his point across that eventually everything will die.
