3.2 The Form of Aggression in Emily Dickinson and Sylvia Plath’s Selected Poems Both Emily Dickinson and Sylvia Plath have an immense part in their unconsciousness that recognize the death instinct urge as seen from their work especially most of their poem. Death instinct and aggression have a tight connection that is undeniable. Aggression is the real output of death instinct urge occurs when death instinct appears and dominates in human unconsciousness. As previously stated in the first chapter of this thesis, the atmosphere of their literary work often about death, suffering, loss, anxiety, unfaithfulness, loneliness, rebellion and another negative impulse that lead to aggression. Quoting from the second chapter, aggression can be said as any emotion, behavior, an attitude that explode from human unconsciousness, calculation of anger and pains, which gives consequence in destructive or harmful action toward self or others.
It is then hinted to be a sad poem almost initially by just reading the title. The latter is quite different however, where the title is more of a line taken from the poem itself but nevertheless suggests some kind of advice of not treating the night within one’s comfort zone. It is important to know that when one speaks about the topic of death, it is almost also expected to talk about life. Both poems, as seen in their tone, share three important ideas on the subject of life and death. First is the acceptance of the inevitable death, second is living life to the hilt, and finally, death being wasted on the good.
Dickinson on Death An analysis of the perspective on death and the afterlife presented in the poem “Because I could not stop for Death”. Death, and what happens to us afterwards has always been a much debated, highly controversial topic. Every era has its own take on it. This view on death is often reflected in the art and literature of that particular era. However, Emily Dickinson’s poem “Because I could not stop for Death” presents a more undecided perspective on death, and the afterlife, which differs from the grim, Christian perspective in the nineteenth century.
Edgar Allan Poe has earned titles such as the Master of American Macabre and the Father of Short Stories, during and even decades and decades after his prime. His trademark is founded on his deep understanding of what are typically considered to be negative parts of human psychology and emotion. He has outlandish views on common human concepts or beliefs, and gives light to these through grotesquely detailed situational stories. He 's far from a stereotypical writer— Poe has brought out very distinct and unconventional opinions about death. This could be attributed to the fact that Poe has been surrounded by and affected by the workings of death almost his whole life.
The aim of this paper is to find out whether there are some aspects, themes or symbols of the motif of death that appear in the poem ‘Lady Lazarus’ by Sylvia Plath and if so, what role they play there and to what extent they influence the understanding of the poem. Confessional Poetry began as one of many artistic movements in post-war twentieth-century America. This style of writing emerged in the late 1950s and early 1960s and mainly focused on the poet’s own experience and real situations which were mirrored in their works. As Gill points out: Confession, then is not a means of expressing the irrepressible truth of prior lived experience, but a ritualized technique for producing truth. [.
Psychoanalytic poets are Kamala Das, Shiv K. Kumar, Eunice de Souza, Mamta Kalia, Sunita Jain and Gauri Deshpande.Shiv K. Kumar’s poems are born out of his own personal experiences. His own personal experiences form the basis for his poems. He underwent a lot of sufferings and faced several crises of great intensity as a Psychoanalytic poet. Suffering is as integral to life as death. Mulk Raj Anand believes that, “Suffering is born of the experience is being plunged in the world in which there are senseless killings.” (Vijay 75).
Poets throughout history have also waged war on social ills and crimes against humanity through their verse. Poets have taken their knowledge, and at times personal experience, of this dark practice and turned it into a spotlight to shine the truth on this blot on the soul of humanity. Poetry is a perfect example of how the personal is political--there's nothing more relatable than someone's story and emotions. Before individuals can take part in any kind of action, they first have to become aware of the issues around them. The emotional connections that arise out of reading and listening to poetry simultaneously spark enlightenment about social and political issues and serves as an effective form of consciousness
The aim of their life is not all about material success rather be a balanced lifestyle. They do not always aims for the highest position. If the current position is already satisfied with their need and they are happy then they likely to stay in that position rather than go for higher position.

Rationale I chose to write a news article about the double suicide in William Shakespeare’s “Romeo and Juliet” in order to touch on the main themes expressed in the play and illustrate their perpetual relevance. Shakespeare’s work is fascinating to me as it is timeless and distinctive in the way it addresses universal themes. In my assignment, I aim to portray the lessons one can take away from the play and discuss the correlation between love and hate. I chose to do this by reflecting on the double suicide, starting with a description of the situation—emphasising the roles love and hate played in the tragic affair—and then becoming more general, discussing their effect on Veronan society. I link the past with the present through a statement made by Prince Escalus in commemoration of the suicides.
