When reading Emily Dickinson's poem "there's a certain slant of light" i can honestly say it wasn't very appealing to myself. The structure seemed disorientated and it didn't flow like most poems. This could be due to her personality traits at the time of her writing this poem. She was depressed and seemed easily interested by small things e.g. a small slant of light. The theme of death also occurs during the poem as she bares witness to a funeral which in my view represents how she is an outsider, due to the dead being alone and separate from the others and how she is watching from afar and isn't part of the funeral. 

p.s: Please change the font of the blog its quite disgusting. :D
