Each of these poems utilize similar structural and rhetorical techniques – creating characters out of pronouns - to convey their messages. Theme is an important component of any poem. It could be argued that the theme of a poem is what is most essential to poetry – the idea and message that a poem conveys is what poetry is often recognized for. Both authors, Cummings and Dickinson, have very different themes within these poems. “anyone lived in a little how town” appears to be a poem about the passing of time and various stages of life.
Is language limited by convention and sense? Wendy Steiner writes that language can be determined by both society and convention (The Colors of Rhetoric 93). Lewis Carroll’s poem "Jabberwocky" in Though the Looking Glass and What Alice Found There shows this paradox of language, requiring readers to use their imagination and acquire a deeper understanding of the multiple uses of language. The poem illustrates Robert Frost’s "sound of sense" in understanding the general idea of a conversation without ever making out a clear word (Interview with Robert Frost 261). Readers can make out the "sense" of Carroll’s poem without understanding every nonsense word.

At this point, democracy in the shape of Ralph seemed to prevail over totalitarianism in the shape of Jack who faded into the shadows. Overall, Ralph and Jack were very different characters. Ralph began the book as a hopeful leader with high ideals and in the end was feeling hunted and squashed by dictatorship and anarchy. He was motivated by the hope of rescue and was more of a democratic leader.
As civilization loses its dominance in the boys’ society, the conch begins to loose its influence. Towards the end of the novel, Ralph attempts to use the conch in Jack’s camp. “He put the conch to his lips and began to blow. Savages appeared… Ralph took his lips away and paused to get his breath back.

The poem now addresses her directly, as if to say, "This is how it's going to be." A theme that prevails through this poem is the speaker's, or author's, realization of a specific concern. No matter what the author or speaker intends to generate through a work of literaturein general, it is up to the reder to truly decidee its meaning. Again and again in the realm of poetry there lies the possible nabilty for the reader to grasp whatever message the speaker has put forth.
Meanwhile, Charles Mitchell argues that the poem’s strange narrative style has a purpose within the plot, and suggests it is not a monologue at all. “It has been generally assumed that the poem is formally a dramatic monologue. However, that assumption is not easily established, for the disclosure that Ulysses faces an audience comes gradually and belatedly,” (Mitchell 289). He argues that the poem is spoken
Then again, isn’t that what writing is about to begin with? Interpret the story as Mr. Hass told us to do, I did, but I analyzed it as a poem looking for an underlying meaning. There had to be much more than what there than what was told to us. I had a totally different perception. After the discussion, it seemed relevant for me to understand the story in a different way.
The characters represent conflicting ideas, yet neither of which would be conceivable without the other. Both characters can only function in the poem when supported by one another, if one character were to be removed, the binary opposition would be removed and the allegory drawn from either Una or Duessa would be less productive.

Roberts is right in saying “Spenser’s allegorical poem demands the active engagement of its reader to produce allegory”(1). Although he never permits to say it directly, he is also right in noting that close reading of The Faerie Queene provides a much broader ranger of allegory.
