Emily Dickinson
The Soul selects Her own Society
By Emily Dickinson

The Soul selects her own society,
Then shuts the door;
On her divine majority
Obtrude no more.

Unmoved, she notes the chariot's pausing
At her low gate;
Unmoved, an emperor is kneeling
Upon her mat.

I've known her from an ample nation
Choose one;
Then close the valves of her attention
Like stone.
If you were coming in the Fall
By Emily Dickinson

If you were coming in the Fall,
I'd brush the Summer by
With half a smile and half a spurn,
As Housewives do a Fly.

If I could see you in a year,
I'd wind the months in balls,
And put them each in separate Drawers,
For fear the numbers fuse--

If only Centuries delayed,
I'd count them on my Hand,
Subtracting till my fingers dropped
Into Van Diemen’s land.

If certain, when this life was out,
That yours and mine should be,
I'd toss it yonder like a Rind,
And taste Eternity.

But now, all ignorant of the length
Of time's uncertain wing,
It goads me, like the Goblin Bee,
That will not state its sting.
Describe Walt Whitman's Background.

SLANT RHYME:
(also known also as half-rhyme or imperfect rhyme)

* refers to words that almost rhyme (farm, yard) or appear to the eye to do so (said, paid).

* Many poets use slant rhyme to introduce an element of the unexpected and prompt their readers to pay closer attention to words themselves rather than the sounds of the words.

* Dickinson, for example, pairs "soul" with "all" here:

"Hope is the thing with feathers/
That perches in the soul,/
And sings the tune without the words,/
And never stops at all."
1.) Describe Emily Dickinson's background.

2.) Identify theme(s) in poems and explain Dickinson's use of slant rhyme and
figures of speech to convey message.
