The author of the story crucible develop both character similarities and differences through figurative language, theme and irony. So as can see elizabeth and abigail don't see eye to eye, especially with the proctor situation. Which created more tension between everyone. Abigail and Elizabeth are very different people with the same motives of getting things the way the want.
Anna Letitia’s mother was a cultivated, strict, neat, and punctual woman with polished manners. She and her daughter never had a congenial relationship, and Anna struggled against the tight rein her puritanical parents imposed. Because she was brought up
Plath was an amazing poet in the modernist period. She was influenced greatly by the era she lived in and her emotions during the time. She went through many hard times in her life, so she wrote to keep her mind off of them. Some of her poems included “Aftermath,” “Lorelei,” and “All Appearance.” She used many types of figurative language to convey the message of the poem.
Their strong religious values aided them in the survival of the struggle they experienced during their lives. They were two different women with similar struggles but with different situations. Although Mary Rowlandson and Anne Bradstreet both had unique struggles, both women were able to overcome their difficulties through similar faiths. Mary Rowlandson was a woman that relied on God. Rowlandson is comforted in her “low estate” by Biblical passages that [take] hold of her heart” and enable her to survive (Mary Rowlanson’s Captivity and the Place of the Woman’s Subject).
They women did not even have rights over their own property. The church also looked down upon a family if the women became in control of certain roles of the house. This time frame was not pleasant to the women, it thrived in the literacy
However, Lorde firmly disagrees with this ‘silent’ attitude and throughout her life she spoke out and refused to stay silent, therefore Maureen Mahoney claims that; “The strength and resistance of Lorde’s own adult voice was no doubt fed by these paradoxes of power and powerlessness, experienced acutely and personally, in a delicately negotiated balance between words and silence” (621). It could be argued that Audre Lorde learned how to find her voice from her sister Helen; “I had finally found out what my sisters did at home at night […], they told each other stories” and “I thought that the very idea of telling stories and not getting whipped for telling untrue was the most marvellous thing I could think of” (Lorde 46). Additionally, Helen is the first out of three women to whom Zami: A New Spelling of My Name is dedicated, and Barbara DiBernard states that; “Lorde’s identity as Zami, a black lesbian poet, is formed through her relationships with other women” (199). Another woman important for breaking Lorde’s silence is Gennie, their connection is crucial in sustaining Lorde as a female writer; “Gennie’s suicide affected Lorde profoundly and has been a major impetus for much of her work” (DiBernard 200). First of all, a poem for Gennie is encountered in Zami: A New Spelling of My Name which Lorde wrote after her suicide.
Jennings sees a relationship between the developments of English literature in general and the development each individual poet has to go through. That was to a large extent the case in her poetry. Whereas her first poems had the directness and simplicity of early ballad poetry, she moved on to elaborate odes and lyrics which can be related to eighteenth century English poetry. In her adolescence her work resembled that of Romantic poets, who were asking questions about themselves and the meaning of themselves and the meaning of life. Eventually she reached the stage where she could use modern language and imagery in order to express her inner experiences, her thoughts about her own time and place (Jennings.

Emily Dickinson’s work is said to be some of the finest in the English language, but she spent most of her life in almost complete isolation. She is one of the most famous poets to have ever lived, and yet much about her life is very intriguing and misunderstood. In fact, the majority of her work was not even published during her lifetime. Over 1800 of her poems were published posthumously by her sister. Her work reflects accounts of life, love, nature, death, eternity, and many other subjects.
Poems are not always literal, in fact statistics show that metaphors and similes are the most used literary terms in poems. In Emily Dickinson’s poem she states, “Before I got my eye put out I liked as well to see as other creatures that have eyes and know no other way. Emily Dickinson didn’t literally get her eye put out but uses it as a metaphor to show that she can longer see things the way they are. She states “The Meadows-mine the Mountains- mine” stating that she owns the mountains which obviously is not true. Of course she states, “so safer- guess- with just my soul Upon the windows pane-“not with literal meaning.
Emily Dickinson is a very popular writer and poet who has many popular works that are read today. Emily Dickinson was very different person, she isolated herself from everyone. Most of her writings were very dark and morbid. Emily Dickinson loved kids and wanted a family but never ended up getting married or having children. As she grew older she became more isolated and started to write more and more about death.
In her poem, #465, Emily Dickinson’s speaker allows the reader to experience an ironic reversal of conventional expectation of the moment of death in the mid-1800s, as the speaker finds nothing but an eerie darkness at the end of her life. Although the author’s speaker reflects upon her life from beyond the grave, she remembers her final moments in the still room and suggests death is not as grandiose as anticipated. In fact, the speaker recalls the room, “like the Stillness in the Air — / Between the Heaves of Storm” (3-4). Here, the speaker compares the aura of the room in which she is dying to the calmness before a large storm.
