Comparing Emily Dickinson And A Noiseless Patient Spider

129 Words1 Page
After reading poetry from both Emily Dickinson and Walt Whitman, I found that I liked Emily Dickinson’s poetry more than I liked Walt Whitman’s. I think that I enjoyed Dickinson’s poetry more simply because of the rhyming. My favorite poem that we read by her was #1732 “My life closed twice.” I liked this poem because of the last two lines, “Parting is all we know of heaven, And all we need of hell.” I liked one of the poems we read by Walt Whitman called, “A Noiseless Patient Spider.” I liked this poem because I liked how he related a spider making a web to a soul exploring. I did not like “When I Heard the Learn’d Astronomer” because I didn’t fully understand what he was talking about.
