It is waiting for the owner to return because without them it has no purpose; this relates to the article by Schaper. In line 7-8, “Or crust and sugar over-/like a syrupy sweet” (Hughes 426), the poet uses alliteration to put an emphasis on “syrupy sweet.” In this line, Hughes also compares a deferred dream to a sweet that has crusted over. In relation to how one needs to break the harder layer to get the sweet, this
It interprets that the bravest people deal with the unknown and are not afraid of the mistakes they make in the future. Emily Dickinson used the metaphor of people walking around in the dark, searching for what lies before them, but only the brave ones are able to move forward without fear holding them back.

This associates with how humans finally learn from mistakes and have the ability to see what aspirations they might have for the
In “Bedecked”, Redel raises attention about the different approaches to parenting in a situation when a parent’s son is more flamboyant than society would deem acceptable. Redel can handle the criticism and “other mothers looking”, but wanted none of it to change the purity of how her son “loves a beautiful thing not for what it means- / this way or that”(16-17). She ends her poem by asking readers if their “heart was ever once that brave”, for going against social norms and not confining to them (21-20). In addition to the older woman and younger man double standard, Calbert's “In Praise of My Young Husband” lists examples of the world’s different romances to note that there is not just one single type: “young lovers like to drink too much / and make a drunken, careless love, / why couples always cook so much” (19-22). Romance comes in all different forms and sizes, and Calbert understands that along with these she apprends why people fall in and out of love.
Allow this writer to recite a little parable/ poem written by this writer, You can chuckle if you like, but always take heed; Without Sin You know living life without sin, Is kind of like pissing against the wind. There really is no way for a mere mortal to win, Than to go through life totally without sin. Now some of you might grin, And some even pretend, But the fact of the matter is, We all know what waits for us at the end. So
She makes it clear when she also uses uncertainty in a universal way because of “We”. Dickinson is also so critical about her emotions and feeling in the poem by expressing:” The Bravest – grope a little.” (Emily Dickinson 13).

On the other hand, Robert Frost only talks about himself, which makes it first person, by seeing at the poem, “I”.
He implies this sense of darkness as a way of “fun” as he describes acres of land and houses being reduced down to “..only dirt..wet or dry..” (line 24). The meaning is misunderstood as the “...blady carouses” contradict the importance of the land with the final line, “...you can hang or drown at last..” (line 28). The reader comes to the realization after the last line of the stanza is that the writer was trying to warn him of the things that may possibly burden him later. The poets lack of respect in his tone along with the irony of his counsel get across to the reader in an indirect yet effective
It is free verse and written in the vernacular, implying that it emulates the examples of discourse and lingual authority of discussion. Hughes then builds up the metaphor of a staircase further, as the mother portrays the challenges in her life using images like tacks, fragments, uncarpeted floor, and dark, dim corners. She urges her son not to turn back, in light of the fact that she never will. The expression crystal stair is captivating. It can be found in an assortment of writings from the nineteenth century, a few religious and some mainstream, and it is frequently used to propose the superb association or parade from earth to paradise.

Her different way of thinking when it comes to mortality and the afterlife, really adds to this poem when realising Dickinson did not live in a time or culture which allowed for much open-mindedness. Expressing these thoughts through this poem shows her courageous and unique character. It also makes the reader think about their own perspective on death and the afterlife. It is way too easy to just accept the common ideas without giving it any proper thought. The reader is urged to be as brave as Dickinson and dared to think individually, however scary the subject might
Shreya Kashyap elaborates saying that “it only describes the pictures of how tired and jaded they were”(3). With the use of similes Shreya comments, “the poet takes help from the outside to actually describe what he was feeling”(4).

Instead of the actual catcher “[meeting] a body” in the “poem,” Holden thinks that “[catching] a body” in a “song” (Salinger 191), is the correct version. With the help of Phoebe, it is important to see how Holden manipulates the poem into the fact that he is the catcher, who saves people from falling into the corruption of adulthood. Holden does not refer to the poem, he refers to his own version of it. Near the end of the book, Holden persuades Phoebe into getting onto the carrousel. At this rate, Phoebe believes that “[she] is too big,” but Holden assures her that he “[will] wait for [her]” (Salinger 231).
