We will forget Him!” uses not only the words but the punctuation to comment upon the effect of emotion and logic, alluding to Dickinson’s own struggle with anger and love.

Although she spent the majority of her life secluded in her room, Emily Dickinson is considered one of the most revolutionary American poets. Her legacy is one that has transformed poetry and allowed for “modern thought and technique” (Faulkner). Dickinson’s overly imaginative mind forced her to indulge in writing. Language allowed her to transfer these thoughts and emotions from her imagination to poetry.

Thus, it makes her to think she is isolated and feels loneliness. In short, the feelings that both Holden and the girl feel when they struggle
Opening The History of Mary Prince, a glimpse of Mary’s early childhood depicts just, humane treatment bringing her joyful satisfaction in her life. For example, Mary describes the wife of her master, Mrs. Williams, as “a kind-hearted good woman, … [who] treated all her slaves well” (pg. 7). Consequently, Mary recalls her willing dutifulness to Mrs. Williams’ directives, where neither fear of mistreatment nor hesitance from violent punishment lead her actions.

Now, in the funeral prayers, in the 103rd Psalm, and above all in Kaddish, she found the right and only words for her comfort and lamentation. During the intervening months (between my first seeing her, in April, and her grandmother’s death that November) Rebecca - like all our ‘clients’ (an odious word then becoming fashionable, supposedly less degrading than ‘patients’), was pressed into a variety of workshops and classes, as part of our Developmental and Cognitive Drive (these too were ‘in’ terms at the time). It didn’t work with Rebecca, it didn’t work with most of them. It was not, I came to think, the right thing to do, because what we did was to drive them full-tilt upon their limitations, as had already been done futilely, and often to the point of cruelty, throughout their lives We paid far too much attention to the defects of our
