“Sleeping in the Forest” is about the speaker’s night in the forest and how the speaker did not want it to end with the morning light. “Ode to Enchanted Light” by Pablo Neruda and “Sleeping in the Forest” by Mary Oliver both describe nature as life-giving in a peaceful mood, but the authors portray light very differently. In both “Ode to Enchanted Light” and “Sleeping in the Forest” the authors describe nature as life-giving using figurative language. Neruda, in “Ode to Enchanted Light” uses a metaphor to describe the life-giving characteristic of nature. The author writes, “the world is a glass overflowing with water” (Neruda 13-15).

One text is " Ode to enchanted light" and the other text is " Sleeping in the forest".
Without any attention stressing on the letter, the townspeople hardly acknowledge it anymore. During the election of the new governor, Indians present even misunderstood the symbol as one of high rank. The meaning shifts towards indeterminate and the idea of taking off the letter starts up among the magistrates. “It was debated whether or no, with safety to the common weal, yonder scarlet letter might be taken off your bosom. On my life, Hester, I made my entreaty to the worship magistrate that it might be done forthwith” (Hawthorne 153).

Besides, there is a special admiration for nature, a sense that the experience of a person is equally important as the religious experience inside the world. This point is also sustained by the work of Emily Dickinson. She wrote at the tail end of the Romantic period, and even though she was influenced by some of the ideals of Transcendentalist, is commonly known as a writer from the Romanticism era. Her writing embodies the defining characteristics that were identified with this period. The main characteristic of Romanticism that Emily Dickinson portrayed in her poems is the emphases on how important Nature is for the transcendentalists.
Metaphorically, this completes the theme, as the symbol of hope, peace, and prosperity is revealed behind hardship. There is once more a distinct tonal shift to support this, as the use of words like “green mantis,” and “small blue Namaqualand daisy” indicate the lively tone seen before in the first stanza. This distinct tonal shift brings focus to the contrast between the struggles of war, and the prevailing peace that lays behind it. The repetition of the word “something” in the phrase “answering something, believing something, knowing something,” placed at the end of the poem, creates room for interpretation in the purpose of the daisy, highlighting the fact that its emanating hope can reach whoever it needs to. Along with this repetition, the daisy is personified once again, having human traits that are seen as comforting.

Which in the end resulted in a very unfitting demise for Gatsby and Myrtle. Nick is not an honest storyteller but he is a reliable narrator because throughout the story he has been judgemental towards others and not saying the full truth or truly giving the reader the satisfaction of knowing his feelings. In the beginning, he said this “In consequence, I’m inclined to reserve all judgments, a habit that has opened up many curious natures to me and also made me the victim of not a few veteran bores.” (Pg.1). Thus from the very beginning of the novel, Nick was stating he had to reserve all judgments but as the reader continues to read on this statement turns out to be false as he in multiple occasions judges a character such as Tom, Gatsby, and Daisy. Nick is a reliable narrator though he tells the full truth all the way to the end well at least to the reader not actually to the characters in the novel.

In the text Irwin says, “ the yellow fruit,leaves whose scent/was that of a clove in the godsome/air.. ” (14 -16) . The imagery talks about the fruit sacredly, but also like the narrator is telling a fantasy, especially because of the word “godsome”. Instead of saying awesome they use “godsome” to create an out of this world feeling. The “godsome” air shows the fanciful tone they use with the idea of their father. In “My Father's Hats” Irwin also says “imagine/ I was in a forest, wind hyming”( 5- 6).
