Emily Bronte
the prisoner

summary of the poem;
''The prisoner'' was originally written to be included in the Gondal saga. Bronte creates a heroine out of the prisoner; though she suffers, she has and will fully overcome her prison with the help of a divine power.Though death god will release the prisoner from her confines and justify her wrongful imprisonment.''The prisoner a fragment'' is both about imprisonment and hope. The prisoner suffered great losses unjustly but her soul will be rewarded in heaven.Bronte uses the young man and the jailer to depict all those that had played a part in her captivity and thus the young man will suffer in the future with his realization that man's will always secede to god's
what can we learn from Emily Bronte
Her entire life and work teaches us about how one's voice can help us see the world as it is and how it is also capable of change,
even though she was extremely ill with tuberculosis,she Refused to give in to it and continued to live life as she wanted to.
She was a courageous and strong person until she took her last breath,
Emily's life and death of courage is a lasting example to us all.
poem summary
Hope as she uses it here is a metaphor for hope, the poet is lamenting that through her life hope was no friend,only a false promise and one that never materialized and even in the end, left as she was dying.
Victorian period

Victorian poetry is characterized by poets dilemma of being fixated between optimism and pessimism the poetry has a utilitarian view and does not glorify nature like the romantics
the characteristics of the romantic poetry is that it emphasizes feeling,intuition and imagination to a point of rationalization,individualism freedom.
