Emily Dickinson shows rebellion as she talks about wild nights figuratively. At the time the story was written, her wild behavior would have been frowned upon since she is a lady. In Dickinson’s first stanza, an image of two lovers is visible as the audience reads “were I with thee” and “our luxury”. In comparison to the theme of Emily Dickenson’s “Wild Nights”, William Shakespeare’s “Let Me Not to the Marriage of True Minds” shows readers the theme of true love with the help of metaphors, personification, and symbolism. William Shakespeare talks about what love is, what love isn’t and what love cannot possibly be.
Shall I compare thee to a summer’s day? Thou art more lovely and more temperate Here in line one and two, the speaker talks out loud and start with comparing the person he is talking to to the summer. Then he jumps directly into describing his lovely person how she is lovely and temperate. In this lines we can see a bit of foreshadowing, when the speaker said “I” is a stressed syllable in the first line, but he did pronounce “thou” as an unstressed in the second line. And here the simile is Shall I compare thee to a summer's day?
In Shakespeare 's time, Beatrice and Benedicks relationship was rather unordinary.

They are also interested in reading literature and expressing their own thoughts on the arts. These females have rhetorical skills that allow them to converse nimbly with men; readers recognize this in Sense and Sensibility, but Austen breaks boundaries when expressing how women were treated and thus placing them in a situation where they felt hopeless.
Ms. Sylvia Plath, an acknowledged poet and the English lecturer at Smith College, has been an inspiration to the youth in poetic realm. The varied assortment ranging from “Pursuit”, to “Mad Girl’s Love Song”, to “Spinster” has given the poetic foundation a varying aspect of confessionalism. Although of providing a new paradigm for poetry, Ms. Plath’s course is so indulged in expression that is making poetry excessively subjective. The use of poetry as a form to express personal emotions is recognized, but lack of reason and overwhelming depression with gender bias is hurtful for all. Subjectivism is an integral portion of poetry to express human emotions.
Poetic devices are important in literature because they help to convey a message, add spontaneity to a poem, and give the reader a strong visual. Some poems are lengthy, and some poems can be very short, however when analyzed, they all express a deeper message. For example, when examining the poem, "The Changeling," by Judith Ortiz Cofer, the reader can easily spot the important message which the author is trying to reveal to the reader through the use of poetic devices. When closely reading this poem, the language and the terminology applied by Cofer enhances the readers ability to make connections between the theme of this poem and how it can be applied to real world scenarios. The poetic devices incorporated into the poem, "The Changeling," reflect on how young children interpret gender roles in their own way.
Collins opens up with this to show how important his lover is to him, by doing this he sets the tone of the poem. People tend to do this as well, often people tell each other how important or valuable they are to them to create a sense of love. Collins refers to Shakespeare when he compares a woman to his favorite season (1). As humans, love is a natural thing, and Collins makes that very prominent in the way he flatters his lover so easily. This is relatable because when people love each other they often say sweet complements.
Anne Bradstreet used false modesty to avoid criticism from a male-dominated society that did not accept women as equals. Anne Bradstreet metaphorically referred to her book of poems as an “ill-form’d offspring” (line 1) as a judgment of its poetic worth. The constant repetition of the book being in critics hands, due to “errors were not lessened (all may judg) (line 6), demonstrated the fear she has to the judgment of her lack of resources and abilities from the press. She instead, judged all her poem’s errors because she had knowledge that her book would be published. In addition, she was not ambiguously sincere, since she bragged about her impressive poetic ability and stated her work as awful and shameful for critics to highlight her virtues.
The tone ii the poem is immensely important because it tells the reader the attitude or feeling the poet takes toward a theme or subject. In other words, how the author feels about the subject in the poem. This is done by the choice of certain words or the inclusion of certain details rather than others. There can be two poems that are written about the same subject, but mean entirely different things because of the tone conveyed by the poet. For example, Richard Lovelace “To Lucasta On Going to the Wars”, and Wilfred Owen’s “Dulce et Decorum Est”, are both poems written about war, but the poems’ difference in tones make the two very different pieces from each other.
