The Nobody Who Became a Somebody

Using similes and pronouns Dickinson gives a sense of talking to a dear friend, the reader, on why she is happy to be nobody....   [tags: Emily Dickinson]

I Was The Girl Nobody Thought Would Go At College

Poem Analysis : Forever By Emily Dickinson

The line “And Years- exhale in Years-“ is an example in which she uses “exhale in” as if years have an “outward purge” on an internal aspect of now (O’Brien).

The reason Vonnegut’s satire is so popular and works so well is because Vonnegut had personal ties to all the elements that he lambasted in his works. Vonnegut’s experience as a soldier in WWII during firebombing of Dresden corrupted his mind and enabled him to express the chaotic reality of war, violence, obsession, sex and government in a raw and personal manner....   [tags: Satire, Elements, Literary Analysis]
