Question:

In Kate Chopin's short story, "The Story of an Hour," what is ironic about the ending?

Daniel S.
Answer:

The ending of Chopin's "The Story of an Hour" is ironic because the characters in the story likely believe that Louise has died suddenly because she is overjoyed to see that her husband is still alive, when we as readers know that she has actually died because she was excited to live a life on her own free of her husband and is now shocked to find out that he was not killed in the train crash like she previously thought.

Question:

In Emily Dickinson's poem "Hope," what is the author comparing with hope? What figurative language is she using primarily in the poem? What does her use of this literary device tell us about hope?

Daniel S.
Answer:

In Dickinson's poem "Hope," the author is comparing hope to a bird using the literary device of metaphor. This comparison demonstrates that, according to the author, hope is always with us no matter how dire the circumstances. Hope is constant and does not diminish in tough times. It is readily available and hope requires and costs nothing for us to have it, as indicated when the poem states that "never - in Extremity/It asked a crumb - of me."
