This poem illustrates traits of aspiration. At the beginning of the poem, Dickinson has a darker tone. She discloses that people adjust to the dark. Literally, our eyes adjust to different shades of light, but also figuratively. What she proposes in lines 7-8, where she says “Then - fit our Vision to the Dark / And meet the Road- erect” (7-8), is that the darkness is the unknown and the road is our future.
In life, we lose things that are very important to us. Emily Dickinson’s poems show us how we must get accustomed to a new way of life. In her poems, she compares losing her sight to perhaps losing something very important to her. In order to grow after losing something very important, we must be brave and courageous to adapt to the new way of life. You must fully appreciate everything you are given in life because you never know when it may be taken away.
Life is full of inevitable change ad it is not always easy in order to understand our lives and ourselves, we much understand the sacrifices need to be made and this can mean having to face the unknown. Harwood’s collection of poetry explores the understanding that comes with change, despite the challenges it presents. Through her use of memories and the experience of losing what is valued in life, Harwood teaches readers that although the inevitable changes of life will not come easy, it is important to find ways to cope and move on with our lives. Being introduced to new aspects in life such as; marriage and children, a part of our lives can be taken away and sacrifices are to be made. “The Lions Bride” gives readers the understanding of a female point of aspect when life is changed
When writing the journal entries, which I intended to be more personal and insightful into Meursault’s character than the novel. I wanted to demonstrate how the actions from the past, such as having to quit school, affected him and turned him into the character readers see in the novel by taking away his meaning to life, getting an education. I did this by creating a shift in Meursault’s speech. In the first journal entry, Meursault is introspective focusing more on his dreams and ambitions. When having to quit school, Meursault’s speech becomes more like in the novel, monotone, simplistic, and focusing on the world around him and how he feels at the present.
In ‘We grow accustomed to the Dark’ the speaker believes that we can adjust to the darkness or it can adjust to us and then we will be fine and continue with life. “The Bravest - grope a little - And sometimes hit a Tree, Directly in the Forehead - But as they learn to see -” People who make attempts whether or not they are certain are the ones who are brave and they are the ones that learn to adjust. This poem has a motivational attitude because the speaker says that if people are brave enough to make attempts to adjust to the darkness they may end up finding peace with it and it motivates people to try different activities whether they are certain or
Yes, Dickinson’s poem is not just about losing of sight or darkness, it also is telling you different things. The poem “We grow accustomed to the Dark” beside dark it is also saying that people that goes to a different place, a new place, with new things and item. “Before I got my eye put out” is not only about losing the sight, it is also about that with your
For some people, their lives may be just starting or they are still on the road to discovery. As for me, my experiences had taught me to learn to appreciate what I have. Additionally, I also learned to not be afraid with facing reality because there will be many setbacks that will happen in our life, but it does not mean we have to drag down ourself to that path instead just be patient and have faith. Like in Jane Kenyon’s poem, where she said to “let evening come” because there is goodness after every darkness. We just have to take a moment, focus on the now, and hold on.
This selection determined the difference between life and death for several individuals. One instance of this is a Jewish survivor known as Elie Wiesel. His first person narrative Nigh publishes his horrific experiences during the Holocaust. The memoir discusses the impressions the event had on him. Upon analyzing Night for the personal or cultural principles that were prioritized during the Holocaust, Wiesel utilizes literary devices to reveal that humans begin to lose faith, hope, and morality when subjected to circumstances of injustice.
Happening-in-the-present and fate can be affected by one simple method prayer. They should also have spotted the slight difference between a child’s fear and an adult’s fear. Fear from childhood and adulthood may have unique levels to overcome, but the person affected by the fear needs to decide to take the control out of fear’s hands. The child in Nowlan’s poem has only just started down the path to conquer the fear of fate. Conquering fear is not nor will ever be a smooth path, mountains and valleys are a part of the path.
For instance in “We grow accustomed to the Dark”, darkness is portrayed as an obstacle that only brave people can face without fear: “The Bravest - grope a little -/ And sometimes hit a Tree”. (13-14) From these lines, the reader can then gain a sense of confidence that they are not alone in their anxiety riddled fears. Because the darkness is given a negative persona by being a representation of the challenges and uncertainties humans face, the reader is given insight on how confidence and sight can still be obtained even in darkness. Similarly, in the poem “Before I got my eye put out” the sun and the vision-loss represent an obstacle the reader faces on a daily basis much like the darkness in the other poem. As a matter of fact the speaker demonstrates a longing to be able to see the sun and all the beauties that the light holds by lamenting, “I liked as well to see --/As other Creatures, that have Eyes/And know no other way” (2-4) By using this past tense of “liked” the speaker is explaining their wish to see again to the reader; therefore, the reader can see the speakers resentment towards the light since they can no longer see whenever they choose to.
