In her lyric, "Since I couldn 't stop for Death" Emily Dickinson utilizes exemplification, symbolism, and imagery to recount a lady 's quiet excursion from life to death and after that to endlessness. In the principal stanza, when she says" I couldn 't stop for death, He mercifully ceased for me", she 's not prepared to bite the dust but rather acknowledges the way that it is a characteristic thing that happens to every single individual, and comes at its own opportunity, regardless of what you are doing or where you are it will come and take you, to which she appears to be content with. She represents passing as though it
The poem Because I Could Not Stop For Death by Emily Dickinson reveals the calm acceptance of death and transition into the afterlife whereas Mid-Term Break by Seamus Heaney conveys his view towards the tragic death of his younger brother.

In Mid-Term Break, Heaney writes in the form of a lyric poem and is written retrospectively in order to encapsulate the tragedy of his brother’s death.

The speaker seems completely at ease with the Death as they move along at a relaxed pace.

Being able to relate to how the character is feeling helps draw the reader in.
