One element of lyric poetry is personal reflection. Which lines in this poem most clearly illustrate that element? I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud by William Wordsworth I wandered lonely as a cloud That floats on high o'er vales and hills, When all at once I saw a crowd, A host, of golden daffodils; Beside the lake, beneath the trees, Fluttering and dancing in the breeze. Continuous as the stars that shine And twinkle on the milky way, They stretched in never-ending line Along the margin of a bay: Ten thousand saw I at a glance, Tossing their heads in sprightly dance. The waves beside them danced; but they Out-did the sparkling waves in glee: A poet could not but be gay, In such a jocund company: I gazed—and gazed—but little thought What wealth the show to me had brought: For oft, when on my couch I lie In vacant or in pensive mood, They flash upon that inward eye Which is the bliss of solitude; And then my heart with pleasure fills, And dances with the daffodils.

Personal reflection into Lyric poetry expresses emotions as lyric poetry always does, but it also reflects on those feelings and makesan analysis of them.

The lines that best represent that element in this poem are:

I gazed—and gazed—but little thought

What wealth the show to me had brought:

He reflects about the wonders he has seen and how they're going to go on with him through his memories at any time, how come did he get this huge gift?

Which pair of uses of figurative language from “The Caged Bird” help support the extended metaphor of freedom versus oppression?

The first two stanzas contrast two birds. Lines 1 through 7 describe the actions of a bird that is free; it interacts with nature and “dares to claim the sky.” The second stanza (lines 8 through 14) tells of a captured bird that must endure clipped wings, tied feet, and bars of rage; yet he still opens his throat and sings.The third and fifth stanzas are identical. Lines 2, 4, and 6 and lines 5 and 7 of these identical stanzas rhyme. This repeated verse elaborates on the song of freedom trilled by the caged bird; though his heart is fearful and his longings unmet, the bird continues to sing of liberty. The fourth stanza continues the comparison of two birds, the caged and the free. The free bird enjoys the breeze, the trees, the winds, the lawn, the sky, and the fat worms; the caged bird with his wings still clipped and his feet still tied continues, nevertheless, to open his throat and sing.  So, "the caged bird sings" - "the free bird thinks"  help support the extended ,etaphor of freedom versus oppresion.

What is a major difference between the poetry of emily dickinson and the poetry of walt whitman?

Emily Dickinson and Walt Whitman are poets that are considered to be founders of Modern American poetry. However, like any other great poets, there are differences in their poetry. An example would be the introversion of Dickinson's poems and the extroversion of Whitman's poems. Dickinson's poems are simple and unique due to her odd placement of punctuation, unusual grammar and simplicity of language while Whitman's poems uses free verse. They are complex and long, more profound than Dickinson's and uses the "taboo" subjects like sex.
