Transcript of As Imperceptibly as Grief

As Imperceptibly as Grief
The theme of
As Imperceptibly as Grief
that Emily Dickinson is trying to get across is that time will go by fast in life but we need to let go and just remember the memories we have.
Stanza 4
And thus, without a wing,
Or service of a keel,
Our summer made her light escape
Into the beautiful
Stanza 1
As Imperceptibly as grief
The summer lapsed away,--
Too imperceptible, at last,
To seem like perfidy.
Stanza 2
A quietness distilled,
As twilight long begun,
Or Nature, spending with herself
Sequestered afternoon.
Stanza 3
The dusk drew earlier in,
The morning foreign shone.--
A courteous, yet harrowing grace,
As guest who would be gone.

Presentation by: Peyton Risselade

By: Emily Dickinson
As impossible to notice grief
The summer went away
It was to impossible to notice at last
Summer seemed untrustworthy
A perfect quietness,
the night began,
or nature spending time alone
hidden away all afternoon.
The night went fast
the unknown morning started to show
in a polite yer intensely depressing grace
as a guest who would be gone.
And now like a bird without out a wing
or a boat without its support
Summer made her light escape
Into the beautiful.
Tone: The poem starts out with a very sad and somber tone that leads into a positive feeling.

Alliteration: There is one example of alliteration at line 9 stanza 3 "dusk drew"
Personification: At the very end of the poem, second to last line, Emily Dickinson writes "Our summer made her light escape" using personification through telling us the summer is a person and summer had the human like quality of leaving.
Imperceptibly: impossible to be aware of.
Grief: Deep Sorrow.
Perfidy: Un-trustworthiness.
Distilled: Purified.
Sequestered: Isolate or hide away.
Courteous: Polite.
Harrowing: Intensely Depressing.
Keel: A part of the boat that supports the hull.
Hull: The main body of a boat.
The relevance of this poem is how in life we must slow done and enjoy the time making memories because the time goes fast and when its gone all we have are the memories that we made.
