Both of the works focus on what the morning means on a deeper level. They make the recipient deliberate the meaning of nature and its beauty by using their imagination. Emily Dickinson’s Will there really be a “Morning”? is incredibly short, and that is what makes it brilliant. The author uses very few words, but the questions the poem asks really makes you ponder what morning and other times of the day really mean.
In the context of the poem, gold is not a precious metal, but rather the precious moments that we experience during our lifetimes. Fleeting sunsets, and the innocence of youth will not last very long, but that gives us more reason to cherish them while they do. Though all good things must come to an end, as Frost writes, a sincere appreciation for the impermanence of what is “gold” ultimately develops
American poet, Robert Frost in his melancholy poem, “Nothing Gold Can Stay” presents the idea of nothing good lasting forever while using nature as a paradigm. This is represented through seasons with each season representing a different mood or stage in the cycle of growth. He develops his message through the personification of nature to show the drastic changes of plants. Specifically, this is presented in first couplet of the poem “Nature 's first green is gold, Her hardest hue to hold.” The line mentioned is giving nature human characteristics of possession and movement to enhance the meaning behind the words relating to the spring season. Additionally, symbolism is scattered throughout like the use of the biblical paradise Eden.
Within the first section of “Success is Counted Sweetest” by Emily Dickinson, the author suggests that the notion or idea of success holds more value to those who cannot achieve it. The author continues onto to compare the sweetness of success to that of nectar because of its rarity/ value. The connotation and word choice employed at the beginning of the poem varies from that of the end of the lyric poem. Dickinson begins by using words with a more positive connotation such as the first line of the poem and then comparing success to nectar.The connotation and overall theme of the poem after the first stanza becomes increasingly melancholy. In addition, she included words like… mostly likely to convey how at first success is thought of as
In the poem Nothing Gold Can Stay by Robert Frost has many similarities to The Outsiders . The poem represents the cycle of life through many seasons . Spring represents rebirth and renewal of life. The poem uses many literary devices such as personification and simile for example line one “Nature 's first green is Gold”(Frost).This means that spring is gold because it doesn 't stay for a long time ,Just like the sun rises and doesn 't stay for a long time .green has the meaning of fresh or new and gold . Another Example of personification “Her hardest hue to hold “(Frost).which means that the beauty of the first flower doesn 't stay for long .” Leaf subsides to leaf “(Frost).
This is expressed in line two, “some corner of a foreign field that is for ever England.” Within the first two lines, Brook already creates an uplifting and nationalistic tone, eliminating the hopelessness originally associated with death. Brook additionally uses punctuation to create short sentences, giving the poem a peaceful flow. For example, “gave, once, her flowers to love,”. The use of commas allows the reader to pause and consider the text tranquilly without the rush of a run-on sentence. Moreover, through the metaphor, “a dust whom England bore, shaped, made-aware” (line 4), Brook compares England to a mother bearing “dust” (a literary metaphor for the body of a soldier).
The writers tone fluctuates from happiness to sorrow and hopelessness with a tonal shift to nature and becoming one with nature. Freneau’s tone is philosophical from the vastness of life using nature, then upbeat reverting back to the soul encouraging one to make one's mark in life. The emphasis in the last stanza “So live, that when thy summons come to join the innumerable caravan” (lines 73-74) is one of encouragement and in the final line “and lies down to pleasant dreams” (line 81) portrays a calming and accepting tone towards
“Nothing Gold Can Stay” Most people have heard the saying, “All good things must come to an end.” Robert Frost explores this idea in his poem, “Nothing Gold Can Stay.” This poem, written in the 1920s, which began as a time of economic prosperity and ended with a time of economic depression, uses gold as a metaphor to explain the idea, nothing “good” will last. Robert Frost’s enjoyment and observation of nature causes him to ponder a far deeper thought of possibly his own mortality, which is, everything has its own time and will eventually perish. This relatively short, eight line, poem packs each line to the brim of imagery and symbolism. The first sentence, which consists of two lines states,”Nature’s first green is gold,/ Her hardest hue
Robert Frost once said in a poem, “Two roads diverged in a wood, and I - / I took the one less traveled by, / And that has made all the difference” (The Road Not Taken 18-20), and what he means by this is that taking the riskier or harder path can yield a better outcome. A different route that nobody takes is a change that potentially can be positive. This is demonstrated in the texts, The Metamorphosis by Franz Kafka and We grow accustomed to the Dark by Emily Dickinson because both show mostly positive changes in the characters. In The Metamorphosis by Franz Kafka, change is portrayed as mostly positive. The text states, “The office assistant was the boss’ man, spineless, and with no understanding” (Kafka 95).
Emily Dickinson also proposes an ironic twist, with immortality in the afterlife, while most people look for immortality in life. The speaker of her poem insinuates that Death should not be thwarted, and is not worth the labor. The theme of her poem suggests that humanity should be less worried about slowing Death down, or diving headfirst into it, that Death will come when it will come. According to her poem, life should be enjoyed and savored, not spent avoiding Death, or
