A family immigrating together displays union, however, the danger is abundant and there is much to lose. Alvarez writes, “Some loss much larger than I understood, / more danger than the deep end of the pool.” (Alvarez, 35-36) In this verse of the poem, “Exile”, the main character, a young girl, talks about how she cannot fully comprehend what is taking place around her. Though, she distinguishes the presence of danger. In spite of being aware of this she is hopeful for what awaits. She says, “Both of us trying to feel luckier / than we felt, both of us pointing out...” (Alvarez, 58-59) In this reference, she is making the most of what she is given, exhibiting that no matter her past, she will be appreciative for her future.

This theme came about in Dickinson’s poem because it explained of the defense that anger could offer her to protect herself, but it also presented problems of being wretched to others. The author can be seen as a somewhat caring individual throughout this poem because she always seems to be caught between being nasty to a person or letting them be nasty to her. She always seems to allow herself to be hurt just so no one else has to be, but eventually her anger overwhelmed her and now anger is not only seen as her enemy but also as her friend. Although Dickinson’s poem “My Life had stood a Loaded Gun” deals with the battle between using and controlling ones wrath; Marvin Gaye’s song “Anger” talks more about trying to conceal and eliminate his old rage. Dickinson can be described as a quieter individual who seems to prefer taking the safer route, yet wants to defend oneself deep down.
