In “A Noiseless, Patient Spider,” Walt Whitman suggests that to survive and achieve emotional fulfillment, connections must be present. In stanza 1, the author mentions a spider trying to make a web on a “promontory” over the sea (1.line 2). The spider is personified in the first stanza and described as “noiseless [and] patient”, which helps the reader discover the spider’s initial personality and instinct. In lines 2 and 3, the writer uses the repetition of the word “mark’d” to signify the importance of the next lines, in which he parallels the speaker to the spider through word-choice and further repetition. The words “vacant” and “vast” provide the reader with a sense of the spider’s precarious nature and the words’ alliteration add emphasis to the magnitude of the setting and

In Beulahland, Janisse describes the human reaction to seeing snakes as a “cold irrational panic.”

Additionally, both these story tellers used similar word choices, that help create the theme a single story has more to it. Susan Power had used many interesting words to refer to different things. In her story she used the words “blue period” to emphasize the sadness that she and her mother saw in the paintings in the museum. She also describes her mother and her hair as snakes.
