He was not present in her life and now he has passed away, leaving her with a yearning for something that she will never obtain.

Om Prakash Tiwari reveals that in a letter Dickinson wrote that she was still hurt by the deaths even though she was comfortable with it. Dickinson said ‘“The dying's have been too deep for me, and before I could raise my heart from one, another has come.”’ (Tiwari 1) Dickinson’s poetry portrays death as an escape from reality. She related the real world to a place of stress and mayhem. She spent most of her time alone by herself and did not like communication (Tiwari 1). Her isolation from society gave her time to write her poetry and form her thoughts on death.
Hitler also had many statues of himself, or figures that represented him and his rule. Also, in line 6 Plath mentions her father as “daddy” emphasizing on the childlike sounds.

Maya Angelou once said, “My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style.” In her poem called “Alone”, she gives an extended example of a reason as to why some people are unable to thrive in life and why others do. “Alone” is about the fact that no one can survive in this rough, cruel world alone, and Maya Angelou depicts this through mood, figurative language, and symbolism. First of all, stanza one of “Alone” starts off with a mood of isolation and loneliness because it paints a picture of someone soul-searching for an answer to their problems, which they think they may have found: people need each other to make it through life. The author, Maya Angelou, shows this when the poem says, “I came up with one thing/And I don 't believe I 'm wrong” (Angelou 6-7). This “thing” that she is referring to ends up being, “That nobody,/But nobody/Can make it out here alone” (Angelou 8-10).
Social isolation can lead to feelings of loneliness, fear of others, or negative self esteem. Lack of consistent human contact can also cause conflict with the (peripheral) friends the socially isolated person may occasionally talk to or cause problems with family members. Isolation is often seen to bring out the worst out an individual, however in Anne Frank’s case, it brought about the best out of her character since she had all the time in the world to reproduce her flair for writing in the emotional confused situation she was in. Anne’s isolation contributed to the development of her mind and spirit as she began to question, ponder and reflect at the never-ending ordeal she had to deal with. Her isolation gave her time to keep her mind off the constant fear and danger that they were surrounded with, and thus it clearly reflected on her writing as she became determined and hopeful that things would get better sooner or
In this time of need, one would generally feel several emotions including hurt, loneliness, anger, and more. Sharon Begley, writer from Newsweek and author of the article, “Happiness: Enough Already,” critiques the newfound “happiness psychologists” and their views on the topic of happiness. She acknowledges this same scenario for, “Jess Decourcy Hinds, an English teacher, (who) recounted how, after her father died, friends pressed her to distract herself from her profound sadness and sense of loss” (Begley 454). Being in this situation is not desirable but is an event everyone has or eventually will face in the course his or her life. Being told to just ignore or distract themselves from the other emotions they are experiencing is not helpful as this person’s friends may believe.
The modern women poetry reveals the frustrations and tensions which women face because of the difference between the way they want to behave and the way they are made to behave. The well-established patriarchal structure still continues to control and restrict the lives of women in one way or the other. It still considers that women are someone‘s daughters, wives or mothers, minus their own personality. The present paper focuses on the description of 'Father Figure ' in the poetry of Mamta Kalia and Kamala Das.

In my work “Ndiyaphila, Ninjani Nina?” depicts an enchained woman with a frustrated expression on her face. The title of my work when translated from Xhosa to English means “ I’m doing well, thank you, how are you?” which is a contradiction to what you see in my work as the woman doesn’t look very inviting. She is physically and emotionally in a position where she would not be asking how someone else is doing. This speaks of the selflessness women are constantly being taught to have. Even though she is in a painful and unhappy condition she still thinks of others before herself.
