Her poetry is often deeply autobiographical, political and often displays a radical, globalized notion of solidarity amongst the worlds oppressed. “Poem about my rights” by the poet, June Jordan can be seen as spoken word poetry rather than page poetry where oral performance and repetition are used to convey her feelings and messages to the listeners. Poetry can be divided into two groups; written poetry and spoken word poetry. Written poetry, also known as page poetry, is written and is analysed by the reader.
There is also some fear in the book at the beginning people in Churchill were spreading rumors about the wolves because they were scared, and at the end when Mowat went into the wolf den he and the wolves were scared.

Trethewey immediately uses imagery to set the scene inviting your senses to help illustrate the image she has already relayed. This helped depict a more in-depth image of her poem “elegy”. After reading this poem several times, to build understanding, and break down literary elements; I came to the conclusion that Trethewey emphasizes the struggle to find balance.

For as long as man has known fear, lusus naturae have terrorized our imaginations: some entirely legendary; others based on bigoted knowledge. Folklore of many ancient beasts, for instance dragons, have lasted generations. Indeed we know devils do not exist, but they serve purposes other than scaring; they educate. From monumental leviathans, such as Ishirō Honda’s Godzilla, who informs of fissionable threats, or Ray Bradbury’s plesiosaurus, who gives a window en route lonely minds, to insentient revulsions, exemplified via Robert Louis Stevenson’s Mr. Hyde, monsters give mosaic slants that allegorically educate.

The speaker is remembering the life of the athlete, and is describing their death as a positive aspect of their life. He goes even farther than just describing their death by telling the reader why the death of an athlete is a positive part of their life. The elegy shows the relationship that the speaker might have had with the athlete, who has died and gone on to the grave. Housman’s use of metaphors, tone, and rhythm are all aspects that develop the theme of the troubles of becoming famous, and the eternity of fame that a life cut short brings.

It's because they have tried to blend into the world before, and people continue to disappoint them.” The novel, The Heart is a Lonely Hunter, written by Carson McCullers, highlights the theme of isolation throughout. In most cases, an astute listener helps ease a person’s feeling of isolation. John Singer, the town’s deaf mute, represents a confidant to the other protagonists, Dr. Benedict Copeland, Biff Brannon, and Mick Kelly as they struggle with their isolation.
