Which of these excerpts from poems by Emily Dickinson uses irony?My cocoon tightens, colors tease, I'm feeling for the air; A dim capacity for wings Degrades the dress I wear. Could she have guessed that it would be; Could but a crier of the glee Have climbed the distant hill; Had not the bliss so slow a pace, — Who knows but this surrendered face Were undefeated still? One dignity delays for all, One mitred afternoon. None can avoid this purple, None evade this crown.There's a certain slant of light, On winter afternoons, That oppresses, like the weight Of cathedral tunes..Heavenly hurt it gives us; We can find no scar, But internal difference Where the meanings are.Exultation is the going Of an inland soul to sea, — Past the houses, past the headlands, Into deep eternity!
