4: Robert Frost | Fire And Ice by Robert Frost Some say the world will end in fire; Some say in ice. From what I've tasted of desire I hold with those who favor fire. But if it had to perish twice, I think I know enough of hate To know that for destruction ice Is also great And would suffice. | Page 2

6: In visions of the dark night I have dreamed of joy departed But a waking dream of life and light Hath left me broken-hearted. Ah! what is not a dream by day To him whose eyes are cast On things around him with a ray Turned back upon the past? That holy dream - that holy dream, While all the world were chiding, Hath cheered me as a lovely beam A lonely spirit guiding. What though that light, thro' storm and night, So trembled from afar What could there be more purely bright In Truth's day-star? | Edgar Allan Poe | A Dream Within A Dream | Page 4
7: Edgar Allan Poe's Bibliography | Edgar Allan Poe was born in Boston, Massachusetts, on Jan. 19, 1809, & was the 2nd child of Elizabeth Arnold Hopkins Poe & David Poe, Jr. His father abandoned their family in 1810, & his mother died a year later from consumption. Then, he was taken in by John Allan, & Frances Valentine Allan. The Allans renamed him Edgar Allan Poe, though they never formally adopted him. On May 27, 1827, Poe enrolled in the United States Army as a private. He claimed that his name was Edgar Perry & 22 years old. While he was in the military, he released his 1st book, Tamerlane and Other Poems. At the end of his military career on Apr. 15, 1829, he had earned the rank of Sergeant Major for Artillery & Frances Allan died on Feb. 28, 1829. After that, Poe started to have a write. He because the 1st well-known American to try to live just by writing. Over a period of time, Poe found jobs working for journal companies. The Baltimore Saturday Visiter awarded Poe a prize in Oct. 1833 for his short story "MS. Found in a Bottle". It brought him to John P. Kennedy’s attention; he helped Poe get a job at the Southern Literary Messenger, where he was an assistant editor for a few weeks.

9: Page 7 | Battle of the Seasons Spring and Winter are in a war. They fight for control. Even though it is suppose to be Spring, Winter has taken over the temperature. But Spring is winning this battle because the flowers are in bloom.
10: Analysis: Frost states that the world will end in fire or ice. The world is actually a metaphor for a relationship. Figurative Language: Metaphors: Fire-Hate, Ice- Passion & Desire, World-Relationship. These are metaphors because they are comparing 2/more unlike things. The tone is desire, hate, & passion. The rhyme scheme is ABAABCBCB. My opinion is that the poem is questioning if the Earth is going be destroyed by fire or ice. Some people argue that it's fire, while others say ice. The poem concludes that the world must end in either of them. Found at poetry.org on March 24, 2011. | Fire and Ice By: Robert Frost | Page 8
11: Analysis: Poe suggests that nothing is more real than a dream; time is a powerful, but mysterious; the poem itself is a dream. Figurative Language: Personification-While all the world were chiding, and Though that light, thro' storm and night, So trembled from afar? The tone of the poem is sadness & longing. The Rhyme Scheme is ABAB. My opinion of this poem is that there is a couple on a date. He tells his date that his whole life has been a dream inside a dream. The poem concludes that the man thinks that this is nothing more than a dream. Found at poetry.org on March 24, 2011. | A Dream Within A Dream By: Edgar Allan Poe | Page 9
