transition from the Biblical and ancient examples he gives to the allusions
of more recent acts of hatred. The lines also allude to the fact that these
Russian Jews who were murdered at Babi Yar were .....

Dickinson begins death's journey with a slow, forward movement, which can be
seen as she writes, "We slowly drove-He knew no haste." The third quatrain
seems to speed up as the trinity of death, immortality, and the speaker pass the
children playing, the fields of grain, and the setting sun one after another.
The poem seems to get faster and faster as life goes through its course. In
lines 17 and 18, however, the poem seems to slow do .....

There comes a time in life when it is necessary to conclude that the focus of existence is complete and decide what to do with the times that follow. The speaker considers the time following this conclusion a period for closure while waiting for her death to arrive. In lines 2-4: “The Stillness in t .....
