In the opening stanza the speaker states being too busy for death. Thus, death “kindly” takes the time to stop for her since she has no time to do it for herself. Death stops to pick up the speaker and take her on a ride in his horse-drawn carriage in the form of a suitor along with “immorality” being their chaperon. This “civility” that Death exhibits leads the speaker on giving up what made her busy as Dickinson states “And I had put away / My labor and my leisure too (6-7). The speaker seems completely at ease with the Death as they move along at a relaxed pace.

‘Wish’ by Carol Ann Duffy is about wishing to resurrect a body. It presents death in rewind and undoes all the suffering that has to do with death. ‘Wish’ is a very personal poem compared to the other poems Carol Ann Duffy had written.

In The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald the reader watches as Daisy Buchanan evolves in love, confidence in herself and finally we see her facade drop away. In the beginning, Daisy is a very quiet, submissive women and as the book moves forward so does Daisy. She begins to live her life without her husband, something she has never done.

This relates to the moral of wrath, because she let out all of her feelings and opinions about the topic, just to get to this particular point. Although “The Wife of Bath’s Tale” does connect to multiple morals, the main focus is geared away, but “The Pardoner’s Tale” sticks to one storyline and focuses on one
