(Ahmadzai and Emal 1) When Layla's parent died with her husband she was sentenced or forced to make a promise to spend two years of isolation and solitude mourning, she compromised with the death of a broken heart. Which as previously mentioned she possibly killed the well being of herself through destructive emotions. Shortly after, Munjan died where to next to her. Both motives of death were caused by the irrational feeling of love, of each other. After Layla’s husband died, the reader finds “two more years without her beloved was enough to cause the women to give up on life” (Ahmadzai and Emal 2) This completely proved Layla's desperation.
The death was the earliest incident of losing a loved one who Poe cared deeply about in his life. The angst he felt for the casualty of his mother was put into his poem “To My Mother.” He wrote, the angels in heaven could not find someone “none more so devotional as that of ‘Mother’” (Poe 1). Poe loses his mother at the age of an infant,
Poe’s poem “Annabel Lee” is published two years after Virginia 's death. “Annabel Lee” is a poem about a beautiful young girl who dies, and the narrator describes her death and how much he misses her. Researchers have examined Poe’s work and have come to the conclusion that the main character named Annabel Lee represents Virginia: “His wife Virginia had died in 1847 after suffering a prolonged illness, and many readers have believed that the poem was written in her memory” (Johnson 1). Virginia dies at the young age of twenty-four, but that does not stop Poe’s ongoing love for her even after her death. Similarly, the narrator in the poem explains that their love is stronger than relationships that are older and wiser than theirs, and how the angels in heaven are jealous of their love even after death.
In the poem the speaker or writer makes the reader feel saddened about his life around his family. The speaker feels saddened around his family because he knows that he is dying and that he will be leaving his family soon. An example of this would be on line thirty-two, the speaker states “I am the invisible son,” (Hemphill 32). The speaker tells the reader that he will be invisible soon, which one would indicate that he is dying. One might think that he is dying from AIDS.
Her poems mostly consist of dark tones and moods, with light messages here and there. This kind of poetry was probably the outcome of her difficult life as a child and adult. Her mother died when she was the age of five, two of her sisters died shortly after that, her aunt of whom she was very close with died when Emily was twenty-four, and her brother died due to overdose when she was thirty. Also, during the time she lived, women inequality was very influential, and it most likely manifested itself into self doubt. In conclusion, given everything that Emily Brontё went through growing up, the emotion of her poetry definitely reflects off of
She chafes against restrictions put on by society, and is even buried in her original homeland. The female characters of As I Lay Dying do face hardships, but characters such as Dewey Dell and Cora set themselves up for it, rather than following in Addie’s footsteps. They are controlled by the patriarch-driven society and chose to accept it. Addie however, refuses to conform to this norm and ultimately leads her to not face the hardships the other women

Ambiguity in John Keats poems Applied to the poems To Autumn and La Belle Dame Sans Merci The following essay treats the problem of ambiguity in John Keats poems To Autumn and La Belle Dame Sans Merci. Ambiguity is treated by the structuralism school and is presented as an intrinsic, inalienable character of any self-focused message, briefly a corollary feature of poetry. Not only the message itself but also its addresser and addressee become ambiguous. Besides the author and the reader, there is the ‘I’ of the lyrical hero or of the fictitious storyteller and the ‘you’ or ‘thou’ of the alleged addressee of dramatic monologues, supplications and epistles. Empson said that: „The machinations of ambiguity are among the very roots of poetry”(Surdulescu, Stefanescu, 30).
In the poem, “Daddy" by Sylvia Plath, the speaker, a young girl, shows herself as a victim who trying to once and for all set herself free from her “daddy 's” grasp. Though her daddy died when she was only 10 years old, the ghost of him still haunts her. In this poem the speaker creates a figurative image of her father, using strands of metaphors and analogies, to describe the relationship she, the speaker, had with her father. The girl in the poem seems to not know sincerely how to feel towards her father as she ends up going through this journey throughout the poem, discovering just who her father truly was. At a young age, the narrator viewed her father as this godly figure, to her, he was a “bag full of god”.
As she puts: “My relationship with my father was a strange one. In my extreme childhood, he was a remote and much revered figure. As I grew older and saw more of him, he became rather a frightening person (Jennings, “Autobiography”) In the poems and elegies she wrote after his death she confronts after his death confronts the ambivalence of her feelings about him. In the final lines of one of these poems, “For My Death Father,”“she creates an image which evokes a sense of their troubled relationship. “There was love now I see of a strange kind./We could move about in each other’s mind”(Jennings, TCP 261).
I attended the Ipswich Female Seminary, where I befriended Emily Dickinson and ever since we helped each other in writing and progressing in our poetry. Tragedy marred my childhood, I witnessed my two baby brothers die as infants. My mother passed away when I was only 14 years old. And my father died three years later. However, my aunt orphaned us which helped my sister and I obtain an excellent education, which was unusual for women in

In the poems “Upon the Burning of Our House” and “In Memory of My Dear Grandchild Elizabeth Bradstreet, Who Deceased August, 1665, Being a Year and Half Old”, which was a poem about a grandchild that had passed away, she expresses multiple emotions she may not have been able to articulate publicly. In “Upon the Burning of Our House” she expresses the sadness and fear she had initially for the things she had lost and the situation as a whole. She then turns her attitude toward that of how a Puritan was supposed to respond and
To add on to her situation, her father had been found dead, seeming to have killed himself. As I reached the end of the journal, I felt more connected with my mother than I had ever been. I now knew who the man named Tom was, and the struggles she had gone through. Reading the diary pages, I had realized that the kind of guilt that my mother had for what she had done was so deeply rooted inside of her, she would have never recovered or let go of that overwhelming feeling. In a way, her death had torn her away from the clutches of self-condemnation she had put herself in ever since the incident with Tom
They say world war one had a big impact on families, well this is how it impacted on my mine. When my dad left for the war I thought I would never see him again. I had been crying for a half-an-hour, and now it was time for him to go. I gave him the biggest hug I have ever gave to anyone and he said to me “I will be back don’t worry, I love you bumble bee”. Bumble bee was his nickname for me, and hearing it for, for what I thought would be the last time, brought me in a river of tears.
