Offer an interpretive analysis of the poem.Get your essay started by responding to Vendler.So: for the first paragraph, I am NOT asking you for a "thesis" or a "topic sentence." Iwant you to begin with a quote from Vendler – something you want to respond to.(Never just "drop" the expert’s ideas into your paper; maybe you disagree, maybeyou want to elaborate, complicate or enrich a point she is making about the poem.)That’s how you’ll get started! Then: anything in the poem is available fordiscussion. Nothing is "off topic" as long as you focus on the poem itself. (You cancome back to Vendler’s essay, too, if you wish; that’s up to you.)No sentence should be redundant. A lot of students have a tendency to make apoint, and then make it again and again. Please don’t do that. This essay should bedynamic and full of surprises. Don’t repeat yourself! Every paragraph shouldmake a new point. Even your "conclusion." In fact, don’t think of it as a’conclusion." Most conclusions are repetitive and just a bunch of fluff. Your lastparagraph should be like any other paragraph – it should make a new pointDo not talk about yourself. Do not refer to "me" or "I" or "my." Focus on thelanguage of the poem. Be sure to offer direct quotations from the poem (no pagenumbers necessary). I suggest you offer short direct quotations – moments fromDickinson’s poem that you really want to draw attention to. And then follow upwith insightful analysis. Don’t summarize. Don’t give the obvious. Focus onshowing off your interpretive skills. Dive into the mystery. I ask that you payattention to the poem’s FIGURATIVE LANGUAGE – the language that only makessense to us if we use our imaginations. Don’t rush the small details – the curiouschoice of word, a surprising bit of diction, or a delightful, musical phrase – oftenyour most subtle insights come from being patient with such "small" details.I ask for polished, crafted sentences. I shouldn’t see grammatical mistakes.Tip: the last 2 stanzas are particularly complex, full of wonderful, figurativelanguage, so give special attention to the last 2 stanzas. Be patient. Be curious!SEE BELOW FOR DICKINSON’S POEM AND THE ESSAY BY HELEN VENDLER.Land. Chaos has no Eternity, not even an Eden; since there was nothing tohope for in the first place, there is nothing to be in despair about now. Dick359inson is brave in facing a wholly indifferent Chaos as the place to which shehas been brought by insupportable agony.he only anomalous line in the poem, metrically speaking, is line 13.A Bird, came down the Walk -which instead of its proper four beats has only three.

The narrative be-gins with "Nature red in tooth and claw" (Tennyson)-and here we wouldadd "beak." Like a news reporter observing low life, Dickinson talks of thehardened criminal she saw, who, thinking he was unobserved, committedmurder and cannibalism on a hapless feeble creature, an "Angle Worm": like156Selected Poems and CommentariesSelected Poems and Commentaries . 157
