Transcendentalist Emily Dickinson
A 6 page paper analyzing whether the famous nineteenth-century poet can actually be considered a transcendentalist. Looking at evidence presented in several of her poems, the writer argues that Dickinson would like to have been such, but many of her fears and obsessions rose from her Calvinist background. The paper uses five of her poems -- 'These are the days when birds come back', 'I heard a fly buzz when I died', 'Because I could not stop for death,' 'Further in summer than the birds', and 'Tell all the truth but tell it slant' to support its thesis. No critical sources are cited.
Feminist Symbolism in the Play Trifles by Susan Glaspell
An 8 page paper that argues that Glaspell uses name, bird/birdcage and quilt symbolism to delineate opposing identities between men and women, and freedom of the bird based on what men perceive as 'trifles' and women consider a part of their identity. The paper posits that Glaspell's overall goal was a call to arms for the suffrage movement of her times, but also a wake-up call for men to the plight of women. Bibliography lists 7 sources.
