Dickinson’s stanza in her poem: We grow accustomed to the Dark - When Light is put away - As when the Neighbor holds the Lamp, To witness her Goodbye – (Lines 1-4). This supports how Emily Dickinson’s poem relates to the universal concept by giving us a situation where one must overcome obstacles (their fears). Dickinson explains how the mind influences how we see things. though the mind gets used to the darkness, so too does the mind change its way of seeing other things. Thus, one must either adapt to change actively, like stumbling in the darkness, but ultimately learning how to walk, or let the problem fix itself, like letting night become second nature over time.
Poe believes that stories that dealt with gothic literature needed to have allegories in them to have a second level of meaning in addition to it’s literal meaning. Theses types of elements were popular in this time period because they taught moral lessons and contributed to the dark feeling a person undergoes when finding the true meaning of not only the story, but are able to personally understand the true feeling the author is trying to make individuals feel. In “The Tale and Its Effect”, Poe stated that he used and supported unity of effect to go about discussing the themes he embedded within his stories in order to make the reader to feel a certain way. He believes that they need to be short and sweet so that the author can get all the details to the reader. Poe exclaims that short stories are superior to novels because one is able to sit down and finish it in one-sitting rather than breaking the experience, with the possibility of forgetting important elements.
She also puts hyphens after words as if there is more to the sentence that isn't included in the poem. By doing this she creates uncertainty and keeps the reader engaged with confusion. Her unorthodox grammar habits also leave room for interpretation, instead of spoon feeding the story she provides an outline and leaves the rest up to imagination so that the we can fill in whatever darkness haunts our own life. Frost uses different methods to leave the reader confused. The title of his poem is “Acquainted with the night” and typically the word acquainted doesn’t instill fear.
The narrator assumes forgetting her lover will make the pain better and is angry at her heart for not allowing her to forget him. She wants to forget him as soon as possible “Haste! Lest while you’re lagging” (7), once again using an exclamation point to indicate anger and hurry, wanting the pain to end. The narrator is angry at herself for not being able to forget him and letting him get to her. Dickinson may have used this poem to express her feelings about an unrequited love interest and the pain that comes with it.
"Either the Darkness alters Or something in the sight Adjust itself to Midnight And Life steps almost straight" (Stanza 5) Emily Dickinson gives a choice at the end the poem to either go back to the light or stay in the darkness. She indicates that most step a little forward and that the light semi near them. Stepping out of the darkness allows a peak of light for an individual. The individuals show that they're starting to move on a straight path. Emily Dickinson's poem "We Grow Accustomed to the Dark" alludes to the human condition by the characteristic aspiration.
Longfellow uses the repetition that could be euphonious for the readers. The repeated part is “And the tide rises, the tide falls.” This line helps understand the message in a significantly better way. The sound and language help inform the readers come to the conclusion that the author's mood is calm, but at the same time scared to see how a beautiful place could do a horrible thing. Longfellow did an excellent job in formatting the poem in a repetitive and mysterious way instead of being direct. A poem uses it’s own language of mystery to help readers solve and comprehend the hidden
To the best of my abilities, I assured her that my friend was not drunk but was feeling sick due to something that she ate. Hoping that the guard bought my story, I smiled and told her that I would stay and make sure that she would be okay. The guard gave me a suspicious look but didn’t bother to interrogate me any further. As she left the washroom I let out a sigh of relief knowing that even though I'm high, I am still able the fully develop an excuse and lie to
Beatrice is Divergent, she has different traits and emotions compared to other people in the society. She was in Candor, a courtroom where she can let her anger out and no one can judge her for what she has done, especially from the ones she loves. When the attention was pointed to her, she was scared to tell the full story about what was bothering her. Beatrice thought to herself, “Safe places, where confessing that I shot one of my best friends would be easy, where I would not be afraid of the way that Tobias will look at me when he finds out what I did.” This quote shows that people shouldn’t hold secrets in, but to let it out even how bad the secret is. The message of the book was to convey the audience to always tell the truth.
In “419,” Dickinson’s darkness is a metaphor for the unknown. Her use of dashes throughout each stanza disrupts their smooth flow and characterizes her narrator, showing the character’s hesitancy when abandoned in the darkness. As the character progresses through the darkness, however, the reader identifies a hopeful and perseverant tone. By expressing that “We uncertain step / For newness of the night,” the narrator shares the feeling of alarming change that is expected to become easier given time.

Doing this will help them to see who they were at that time and allow them to let out any frustrations with their self, but not attacking themselves.

The vignette Born Bad, is important to Esperanza, because it talks about a moment that seemed to affect her a lot and has changed her. This is so, since she talks about how her aunt was nice and caring to them, but is still fragile after she was blind.

Perestroika is a term used to describe reformation when you are changing and improving for the greater good. This is perhaps why Kushner chose to name the second act of his play Perestroika, because the characters embody the meaning of the word in their transformations. Throughout the play it is evident that Harper is absolutely miserable and like many others, turns to her addiction in order to mask the feelings of pain and resentment of her unhappy marriage. Her story does have a happy ending in which she expressed the journey through her affliction in her final scene, “In this world, there is a kind of painful progress. Longing for what we’ve left behind, and dreaming ahead (Kushner 285).” This shows that Harper realizes that life has its downfalls, but in order to be happy we must remind ourselves of the good that is left to come.
