Hope is the Thing With Feathers : Hope is the Thing With Feathers Emily Dickinson A close reading of a poem Slide 2: Hope is the thing with feathers That perches in the soul, And sings the tune without the words, And never stops -- at all, Rhyme- ABCB Iambic trimeter that expands to include a fourth stress at the end of the line– it modifies and breaks up the flow with long dashes indicating breaks and pauses The entire poem is an extended metaphor– hope is a bird Slide 3: And sweetest in the gale is heard; And sore must be the storm That could abash the little bird That kept so many warm. Rhyme- ABAB The metaphor continues– she describes how the bird reacts to hardship– it must be a terrible storm to deflate the little bird Evidence of Dickinson’s maturing style in this early poem- while the bird can not actually be abashed (humiliated) by the storm, the reader feels the “bash” the poor bird experiences by the storm, and the metaphor is complete- because hope can be humiliated/deflated or abashed. Slide 4: I've heard it in the chilliest land And on the strangest sea; Yet, never, in extremity, It asked a crumb of me. Rhyme- ABBB The little bird can be found in many places- the chilliest land and the strangest sea, providing the listener with a song But the bird, and hope, ask nothing of us in return
