In Symposium, Aristophanes described how both sexes were so powerful when united; and when they were separated, human beings still strived to be united once more by any means. On the other hand, in Lysistrata the characters were already married and united; however, women found their true strength when they started a psychological war on their men. Even though both works drew the readers’ attention to the need for love, Symposium emphasizes the union of sexes in a way that the characters in Lysistrata will never reach; where love is not only about sex and physical attraction, but it’s also about a healthy relationship occupied with affection and caring.

That’s the case of Emily Dickinson, a really famous North American poet whose poems were released after her decease on May the 18th of 1886. In addition, her style of being very critical about what was around her and the way she expressed this through words, gave her the capability of transforming abstract ideas into rational explanations; which most of the time, and in purpose were interpretations of the reader. Dickinson’s style of writing was strict and with several rules to follow, this pattern was not shared by her colleague Walt Whitman, whose pieces of work were, at a first sight, disorganized and chaotic.
