After reading poetry from both Emily Dickinson and Walt Whitman, I found that I liked Emily Dickinson’s poetry more than I liked Walt Whitman’s. I think that I enjoyed Dickinson’s poetry more simply because of the rhyming. My favorite poem that we read by her was #1732 “My life closed twice.” I liked this poem because of the last two lines, “Parting is all we know of heaven, And all we need of hell.” I liked one of the poems we read by Walt Whitman called, “A Noiseless Patient Spider.”

His gloomy and dismal style was displayed with a seamless and beautiful incorporation of elaborate diction and a dramatic tone into his already lovely poetry.
