Emily Dickinson’s body of work contains different experiences of death that contain moving reactions to the body’s trek into darkness and madness. Her poems’ magnitude comes from the complicated and deliberate use of literary techniques to breathe life into death, and the uncertainty of meaning that permits different viewpoints of these experiences. Although the views presented by Dickinson can be conflicting at times, they all underline her views that death comes in many forms and in just as many experiences. "I Heard a Fly Buzz – When I Died" gives the reader a view of what death is when there is no afterlife as it spotlights on the decay that happens after the death of the writer, a course that leads to darkness and emptiness. The tone of the poem could, depending on one’s station in life, be about fear or peace.
The two poems, “Do Not Go Gentle into That Good Night”, by Dylan Thomas and, “Because I Could Not Wait for Death”, by Emily Dickinson, we find two distinct treatments on the same theme, death. Although they both represent death, they also represent it as something other than death. Death brings about a variety of different feelings, because no two people feel the same way or believe the same thing. The fact that our faith is unknown makes the notion of death a common topic, as writers can make sense of their own feelings and emotions and in the process hope to make readers make sense of theirs too. Both Dickinson and Thomas are two well known and revered poets for their eloquent capture of these emotions.
Death is a prevalent theme in the poetry of both Sylvia Plath and Emily Dickinson. They both examine death from varied angles. There are many similarities as well as differences in the representation of this theme in their poetry. Plath views death as a sinister and intimidating end, while Dickinson depicts death with the endearment of romantic attraction. In the poetry of Plath death is depicted traditionally, while Dickinson attributes some mysticism to the end of life.

“Do not go gentle into that good night, Old age should burn and rave at close of day; Rage, rage against the dying of the light” (1-3). In these lines “night” and “light” rhyme. This rhyme scheme gives the poem a sense of order which helps to establish a feeling of anger towards death for the reader. These two different rhyme schemes help to establish how the reader feels as they are reading the poem. Each of these poems are different their themes, tones, and rhyme schemes, but they both show how the author perceives death.
Keats uses articulate wording to exemplify his tone, while using images, figures of speech, symbols, and allegory to illustrate his fear of death. His use of rhythm, sounds, and patters also contribute to his concentration of fear and the effects on his life. As one of the most famous Romantic poets, John Keats utilizes the elements of poetry in “When I Have Fears that I May Cease to Be” to convey his fears and allow the reader to realize how much these fears affect him. John Keats employs word choices and word order to illustrate his contemplative and sympathetic tone. The tone could be interpreted as pessimistic and depressing because the majority of the poem focuses on Keats’ fear of death.
Depending on how each individual reads “Annabel Lee”, there could be many different takes on the themes, however, love and death are the two most obvious two in this poem. In a sense, love and death are fused together in “Annabel Lee”. When reading and interpreting the poem, it seems that Poe asks if death can kill love or if love is still carrying on long after death. Poe seems to be obsessed over the death of his love and tries to seek out blame directed towards angels, which seems very
