In the end, he states “and so live ever or else swoon to death” (14). He accepts the fact that death is inevitable and he chooses to spend his dying days in the arms of his lover. Similarly in “When I have Fears,” Keats expresses his emotions towards death, except this time, from the perspective of a poet. Through alliteration and personification he relays his fears of not being able to write all his knowledge on paper and his fears of death denying him fame and love. As with “Bright Star,” by the end of the poem he comes to terms with death.
Observing the love and affection between others only increases the effect his own solitude has on him. He is aware of his otherness and knows that he is “shut out from intercourse” (84) with the people he holds so dear. It can be argued that this is the point where the creature’s humanity is the strongest throughout the course of story. He has a basic understanding of human societies, he speaks and reads their language, shows compassion and, most importantly, seeks their company and friendship. In his knowledge that social belonging is the missing component to his own happiness, he confronts the people he secretly observed only to, once again, be met with fear and anger (94-95).
Her smooth rhythm a slow rhythm, supports the theme of the poem by creating a slow relaxed mood. On occasion the author cuts a line mid sentence, to put emphasis on a word, like “immortality.” In the poem, the author introduces the concept that death cannot be avoided, and with the personification of Death, the outlook that it should not be avoided or feared. The poem mainly focuses on the afterlife and the inevitability of Death. The narrator of the poem first speaks about the inevitability of Death in the first two lines: “Because I could not stop for death/He kindly stopped for me,” (1-2). Line three indicates a hint of intimacy with the statement, “The Carriage held but just Ourselves,” (3).
He shows what happens to someone when they lose someone that meant a lot to them. Poe describes depression, bleakness, bargaining, but most of all acceptance. Poe writes the conclusions to both of the novels as acceptance because he wants people to know that the suffering only ends at acceptance. The death will always haunt people like when Eleonora comes back from the dead at the end of “Eleonora” but in the end the narrator accepts her death. At the end of “The Raven” the protagonist accepts his love 's death as well with the help of the raven when he tells him that he will never be together with his love again.
Then Owen ends by saying if these events that happened during war are witnessed, then the "lie" that it is glorious to die in war would not be believed. When Owen 's poem and Vonnegut 's insights it shows that war brings anguish to those who fight it. In Billy 's event on the train, the other passengers only allowed him to sleep standing up because he would, "yell... kick... and whimper," from his anguish of war. Combined with Owen 's poem that is full of pain and struggle, there is no doubt about the clear theme, war is misery. Vonnegut 's Slaughterhouse Five has a theme that war isn 't exceptional, contrary to what some might say.
If you give respect you will get respect. " Connect with some who is willing to spend time connecting with you.' so basically give to that to who give to you, be there for the people that are there for you. Partnership is a two way street, and no one should be getting less than what they are giving. Another thing that kept my eyes wide opened what that there was a poem that said "we've become a prison and I am planning to escape from you," and that is so deep to me because o one should feel trapped in a relationship that is not healthy for any one.
Lord Alfred Tennyson’s Crossing the Bar considers the subject of death from the viewpoint of someone experiencing it themselves, and expressing that they hope those close to them can feel the sense of closure that they do. In Dylan Thomas’ Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night tackles the same subject from the viewpoint of someone watching their father die, and asking him to fight against death. The authors different viewpoints and opinions on the subject of death allow them to use similar literary elements in opposite ways. Tennyson uses figurative language in the form of darkness and night to depict the coming of death. “Twilight and evening bell / And after that the dark!” (Tennyson 9-10).
Emily Dickinson became very well known for her fascination with death. Many of her poems focus on loss or loneliness, but the most compelling ones talk particularly about dying, specifically her own death and her own afterlife. Her captivation with suffering gives her poems a rare aspect, giving insight into a mind and a topic we know very little about. “Because I could not stop for Death” closely demonstrates Emily’s fascination with her religious doubts and life continuing after death. In this poem, the speaker is looking back on the moment of death, whereas in “I heard a fly buzz when I died,” the speaker is looking at the moments leading up to death, and in “I felt a funeral in my brain,” the speaker is describing death itself.
However, Emily Dickinson’s poem “Because I could not stop for Death” presents a more undecided perspective on death, and the afterlife, which differs from the grim, Christian perspective in the nineteenth century. Firstly, the final destination is pictured as neither heaven nor hell, but rather as an everlasting journey. In the nineteenth century people believed that after death a person would end up in heaven or hell. Of course there was also purgatory where people would suffer, but after that even those people would go to heaven (Casey 226). Therefore, in Christianity a person’s journey ends at their death.
Throughout the poem, death is personified through the use of capitalization as seen in the quotation “He Kindly Stopped for Me”, implying that the narrator has accepted the idea of death; the adverb describing death as “kindly” indicates how caring and courteous he is. Death leads the narrator into an afterlife through a gradual progression of events rather than an abrupt end, as seen in Heaney’s ‘Mid Term Break’. The end of the poem sees the narrator obtaining immortality and living in “Eternity”. Dickinson hints at the idea of immortality at the beginning of the poem where she describes that there are three people present in the carriage: the narrator, death and immortality: “The carriage held but just Ourselves - And Immortality”. The inclusion of time and the juxtaposition of “Centuries” and how it feels “Shorter than the Day” develops the idea of “Eternity” and immortality as time has lost
