Beauty may be defined as God’s work, it is not simply like the flying birds, the sparkling stars, or beautiful life, but God’s works also includes death. According to II Corinthians 5:8, "We are of good courage, I say, and prefer to be absent from the body and to be at home with the Lord."; In short, death is not something scary or horror as people usually imagine, death is worth to be praised as a “going home experience” which led to God 's house, and known as a gift from God. Beyond the normal standard of beauty, Romanticism develops the understanding of Beauty to include Death and Loss. “Because I could not stop for Death” and “I heard a Fly buzz - when I died” are two poems by Emily Dickinson- is a special woman poet who is described by writer Joyce Carol Oates that “the most paradoxical of poets". Dickinson 's poems contain specific ideas and topics that were written by her special vision which bring to the readers alternative definition about the meaning and also viewpoint about death. Definitely, Emily Dickinson has totally different conceptions which were often encountered at that time through the writings of contemporary writers. Romanticism is a literary intellectual and artistic movement of the late 1700s to early 1800s that originated in Europe, then spread to the other parts of the world especially English-speaking areas, such as America. This movement is a celebration of the Creativity and Imagination as well as a rejection of Enlightenment ideals.
