Religion is undoubtedly something that is incredibly important for many people. It at times serves as a source of comfort, a sense of purpose, or even a sense of belonging. Because of this, it has been a common origin of inspiration for many poets regardless of origin and time. Anne Bradstreet and Emily Dickinson are no exception. Both reference religious beliefs and God numerous times throughout their works, but they do so in different ways.
“The God that holds you over the pit of hell… he looks upon you as worthy of nothing else, but to be cast into the fire...” Jonathan Edwards addressed in 1741, about 100 years after Anne Bradstreet published “To my Dear and Loving Husband”, making herself the first Puritan women to be writing poetry. Edwards and Bradstreet both wrote for the Puritan community about their religion, making an impact on the world in different ways. Bradstreet and Edwards both had have religious views and used their different styles and personalities to make their impact on the Puritan community. Although Bradstreet and Edwards both expressed their religious views in the Puritan community, they both spoke of religion in different ways then each other.

These are certainly not all of the pagan religions, but they are some of them. So, what is paganism? Paganism is an umbrella term, meaning it is a big category that covers multiple religions and belief systems.
Christina Rossetti The sister of Dante Gabriel Rossetti, one of the founders of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood, Christina Rossetti’s work was influenced by the doctrines of this artistic movement. Her poetry is simple in rhyme scheme and choice of words, conveying the meaning of her poems to the reader with much clarity. The aforementioned characteristics of her poem do not take away from the vibrancy of her descriptions, as she used symbolism to help her paint vivid images in the minds of her audience. Adding to that, she was a devout Christian, and so her poems take on a highly religious, spiritual, and emotional theme, removed from material wealth and earthly possessions.
Despite her refusal to be viewed in a particular sociopolitical stand point, Oliver still remains one of “America’s finest natures poets” (6). Oliver should continue to be thought at college level because of her complex views she has of nature associating it with life, her poetic technique and complex themes, is what allows her to be relevant in this day and age. (and her refusal of conforming herself to a particular “label”, much like people today; of not conforming to the norms of society.)
Heaney uses the English pattern sonnet as a form of ironic gesture towards the English. The poet took a risk in creating a both political, both rape poem, as these two topics are very controversial. He still managed not to become too political, but he let us know his inside thoughts about the matter. He describes women as weak, as someone who is easily oppressed.
She uses very personal attachments and ideas to replicate and sometimes just briefly hint at the events that happened in her life, in her novels. Jane uses superb wording and excellent examples in her novel Persuasion to depict some of the events in her actual life. Jane Austen is a very well educated woman from the 19th century who, even though was not allowed to write back then, did it anonymously. Her work was so good it couldn’t be ignored. Even after people found out it was her, they didn’t believe a woman could write so well so they thought it wasn’t her.
The poem was influenced by the early 20th-century German poet Rainer Maria Rilke, whom she claimed as a role model. The short poem is a lyric poem, it has a single speaker who expresses personal thoughts and feelings of a subject. Therefore the point of view of this poem is first person. This is shown through the uses of pronouns such as I and me.
Creating an uplifting and a positive of the tone. There are many elements that make this poem meaningful, and she used a tone, the onomatopoeia, the alliteration, and the metaphor to made it. Dickinson 's use of figurative language in the line, “I’ve heard it in the chilliest land” gives the reader another reason to have hope and even in the coldest place. Next, she uses sound to tell the reader that there is no question why hope exists, because hope is a non-linguistic, non-rational, instinctive, and it is what I always believe in - in the line “And sings the tune without the words”. Finally, metaphor - “And on the strangest sea.”
Throughout my life time I have been inspired by many great people but the one who stands out the most is Marian Wright Edelman. Marian, born June 6,1939, has been an advocate for disadvantaged American for her entire professional life. She is the president and founder of Children 's Defense Funds, and an activist for the rights of children. I first read about Mrs. Edelman when I came across an inspirational quote from her, "You really can change the world, if you really care enough" This quote spoke to me in many ways. Out of curiosity, I continued to do more research on her and what I learned were things that changed my life for the better.

From the 19th to 20th century, it moved from rural areas into cities such as Guadalajara and Mexico City, along with the Mexican government's cultural promotion gradually re-labeled it as Son style, mariachi becoming the word for the urban term.
