When Rainsford falls off the yacht in to the warm Caribbean ocean, he has to fight his way to shore. When he reaches land, he is so relieved and believes he is out of danger.

The authors also use extended metaphors and fearful imagery to implement the ominous feel that comes with darkness. Although both poems use different devices to achieve their purpose, the message is almost parallel. In Emily Dickinson's “419” she grabs your attention by using the pronoun “we”, in doing this she relates to the reader and makes the poem more personable. Her point of view allows her to describe just how vast her darkness is, all the while putting us at the center of the action.

After Rainsford reached too far for his pipe, he was sent into a life or death situation while his “cry was pinched off short as the blood-warm waters of the Caribbean Sea dosed over his head. He struggled up to the surface and tried to cry out, but the wash from the speeding yacht slapped him in the face and the salt water in his open mouth made him gag and strangle” (Connell 2). As the readers read by this section of the story, their eyes would open wide in response to the situation that Rainsford was left in.

At the beginning of the poem, he seems confused and miserable. But his tone gradually changes since he gets angry and more determined rather than just being sad and perplexed. The poem seems to be like an interior monologue in which Kimel reveals his thoughts and internal conflict using first person pronouns.
The symbolism can be very difficult to understand, but if a reader observes the text very carefully, he or she can understand what is trying to be symbolized. Poe loved to add symbolism behind his characters (“Edgar Allan Poe”). He would combine the physical and intangible traits of the characters and make the readers dig deep to discover what the characters are trying to portray in the story (“Edgar Allan Poe”).
