Tone is the attitude of the poem and it is perfectly clear that this tone is a mixture of tragedy and depression. I get the clue of depression from the accident, family reaction to his death, and the title. The title is a wee-bit depressing because of the background to it. The title is from a Shakespeare piece called “Macbeth” the actual verbalization of the title is “Out, out, brief candle!” and that certain line is presenting the pointlessness of life, which does refer to the poem and creates an allusion. The sense of tragedy is also from his treatment by his family, but also, his death.
Nathaniel Hawthorne, an author during the dark romantics, secluded himself in a room for ten years, dedicating his time to literature and his writing. It was in this environment that he wrote several novels and short stories on the nature of the sinful man. In a specific allegory titled, “Young Goodman Brown”, a man loses his faith and innocence throughout his encounter with the devil in a forest.

Abstract: North of Boston is Robert Frost’s second volume of poetry, published in 1914.If his first volume A Boy’s Will(1913)is an expression of his lyric genius in his next anthology he shows his skill in composing dramatic narratives or verse tales. They give a picture of the people living in the north of Boston in New England as seen by the poet. Each poem (with a few exceptions) seems to be a self- sufficient episode of a novel written in verse form. The episodes may be unconnected but they are held together by one common thread- the setting being in the northern part of Boston.
The Death of the Hired Man, indeed almost all the poems in North of Boston, Out, Out and Snow in Mountain Interval, the first one missing melodrama, perhaps, only by its terrible brevity and economy. The Witch of Coos in New Hampshire – the only thing that can be said about these poems is that they stand with Chaucer’s and Browning’s, a little less in good cheer and gusto, and a little more in sensitive and reserved
Blake’s work was mentioned as ‘diseased and wild’ by John Ruskin, even though Ruskin noted that Blake’s mind as ‘great and wise’. However, it was only in the Twentieth century that Blake was acknowledged as a notable poet and artist. Blake’s poems are simple and lyrical in form, but there are complex works too, which needs the reader to work hard to understand what Blake means.

"To think or speak poetically is to adopt a distorted stance toward the ordinary world..." and to do so is with the use of figurative language (Gibbs 1). Figurative language is the point at which you utilize a word or expression that does not make use of its literal meaning. Authors who utilize figurative language, use this to make their work more fascinating or more emotional than the exact language which essentially states simple facts. Authors frequently use figurative language to make unfamiliar things, settings and circumstances more relatable for the reader. Poems, specifically, depend intensely on figurative language.
That same year, he found himself under attack for his stinging criticisms of his fellow poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. Poe claimed that Longfellow, a widely popular literary figure, was a plagiarist, and this written assault on Longfellow created a bit of backlash for Poe. Continuing work in different forms, Poe examined his own methodology and writing in general in several essays, including “The philosophy of composition”, “The poetic principle” and “The rationale of verse”. He also produced another thrilling tale, “The cask of Amontillado”, and poems such as “Ulalume” and “The bells”. Poe was overcome by grief after the death of his beloved Virginia in 1847.
branching off of the trees that are darker in color. Frost uses juxtaposition to show the contrast of the darker trees amongst the white bark. The bark of birch trees can vary in color, white to darker ones such as black. Although the ones he specifically describes are the darker birches, which helps develop the connection to stressful times.
