Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening' by Robert Frost and 'Because I could not Stop for Death' by Emily Dickinson: A Comparative Study
The study of literature is obviously the study of life and death. Literature deals with several nuances of life, death and the philosophies connected. Literature mirrors life and that is how we can realize what life is in a very meaningful way. In literature most of the poetry enlightens the readers through such meanings. This paper focuses on two eminent poets of American literature, i.e. Robert Frost and Emily Dickinson, whose poetry mainly deals with life and death. Both the poets are known for their idiosyncrasies depicting their own style and content. Their poems are philosophical in nature, visualizing nature, relationship, divinity and spirituality. Both the poets were close to nature and spent their lives amidst the beauties of nature. Their poetry is simplistic and honest expressing the daily activities of life.
