The Compact Bedford Introduction to Literature Twelfth Edition
In a carefully structured five hundred word essay fully discuss the following three poems, “Because I could not stop for Death” by Emily Dickinson (p.736), “Do Not Go Gentle into That Good Night” by Dylan Thomas (p. 681) and “Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening by Robert Frost (p. 768). Prepare by first reading the poems then consider the questions that follow each poem in the book. After you have read the poems and considered the questions for each, begin your essay with a focus on what specific imagery each poet employs to treat the subject of death. Feel free to use both class notes and the questions that follow each poem. Conclude your exam with a discussion of how each poet’s treatment of death is quite different.
