Anne Bradstreet states that “when she came into this country she found a new world and new manners, at which her heart rose in resistance” ( Baym, 2013, Pg. 110).

The big message is for the readers to live and learn from experiences. The authors want their audiences to use these tales and examples as life lessons and hope for them to utilize these sources in their future lives. These two ideas are presented through the use of figurative language, mainly metaphors. In addition, the similar tone of these pieces allows the author to connect more deeply with the readers. Toni Morrison’s Nobel lecture, folktales, and several poems illustrate how metaphors and tone are used to describe experience and caution the readers.

Through the use of antithesis, parallelism, and anaphora, Johnson evokes the feelings of inspiration that were once brought to the audience by JFK. Although sometimes in life people are taken away, never lose hope in the midst of sorrow. Use the tragedy as
The reader’s own voice allows them to realize that they do not need to feel trapped or dragged down by the other voices and that “the only thing you could do…to save / the only life you could save”. Oliver’s last two lines show a transformation within the reader as the reader realizes their own needs and self-worth. As the reader continues down the road, they become more free with every step, escaping the prison of the voices. To conclude, Oliver’s poem is a narrative explaining the torment everyone goes through in order to free themselves from the chains of the “voices” dragging them down. Within each stanza, the voices grow dimmer and dimmer until the only voice the reader is able to hear is their own, ultimately freeing them from any impediments.

The last and final segment is the “ Blooming”. The last semne is about all of the past segments but learning that thing where into going to get better from there for them.
