Buzzing Of A Fly
1,006 wordsGeoff Eng 219 3/4/00 The Fly and #465 Emily Dickinson in her poem #465, covers the subject of death in a way that I have not seen before. She delves right into the last sounds she heard when the narrator died, which was a fly buzzing. The last actions of this world are concluded by the assigning of "keepsakes", the last few tears while waiting "the King". And now, in the midst of this silence, Emily chooses to introduce the buzzing of a fly. This common household pest's incessant buzz becomes al...
0 The Sea
255 wordsPeaceful Dover beach, which was calm the night when Arnold was there, showed us the difficulty of accomplishing something. By using ideational structure full of metaphors and making each stanza to have its own characteristic, Arnold effectively transferred the theme of the poem. The poetry starts with the description of Dover beach at a moment, which would not last forever, directed us to the sadness or disappointment that he would reveal later in poetry. The first stanza is very much about desc...

596 wordsThe Last Night that She Lived After evaluating my perception of The Last Night that She Lived, by Emily Dickinson.

In the first verse Dickinson was saying when she wrote", The last Night that She lived It was a c...
Last Stanza Of The Poem
1,526 wordsJames Dickey's "On the Hill Below the Lighthouse" best reminds me of the Lord Alfred Tennyson. Upon first reading Dickey's poem, a deep yearning and sentimental emotion is achieved. There is a great sense of not regret but of something that the narrator longs for. This can be seen in the last stanza of the poem. "Now that I can be sure of my sleep; The moon is held strongly within it. A woman comes true when I think her. Shade swings, and she lies against me. Let us lie in the returning light; L...

Poem The Author
283 wordsPoem Analysis In Lake Isle of Innisfree, the author becomes inspired to write the poem while walking down a street. The sound of a water fountain captures his attention, and he begins to drift of in a daydream. In this poem the author uses many literary devices to show that this is a place that he would much rather be. In the poem he describes this location (where he has been in the past) by using a lot of imagery, so that his point can reach the reader. He starts by writing "And a small cabin b...
