Focus Correction Areas - 3 Quotes - Clear explanation of my view of life and death - Creativity - 2 pages standard paper form My View On Life And Death Thanatopsis a poem by William Cullen Bryant tells about how when one dies the grave becomes an endless world how the deceased become one with the earth the trees and everything that is great within the earth and how when one dies they do not die alone He uses strong words to describe the feelings and visions one sees when they are in their last hours and even after they have passed away The author makes death seem like something that should not be feared and should almost be looked forward to When thoughts of the last bitter hour come like a blight over thy spirit and sad images of the stern agony and shroud and pall and breathless darkness and the narrow house make thee to shudder and grow sick at heart- Go forth under the open sky and list to Natures teachings while from all around- Earth and her waters and the depths of air- comes a still voiceBryant 153 I think that Bryant is taking what can be considered the stereotype of what death and dying feels like and putting it in some very descriptive and strong words He then goes on to show from what I gather how one should really feel when dying I think the authors opinion of death is that it should be a happy and relaxing experience He tries to show that when dying instead of feeling deep sorrow and pain you will become embraced by mother nature and her calmness and it will be a soothing experience rather than a painful and devastating experience After reading this poem and seeing such strong descriptive words I can understand and almost invision how dying could be a pleasant experience rather than going along
