"Hope is the Thing with Feathers" by Emily Dickinson ,it is simple poem. It is about nice hope and optimism in life . the speaker compare between hope and bird
that perches in the soul. There, it sings wordlessly and without pause. The song of hope sounds sweetest “in the Gale,” and it would require a terrifying storm to ever “abash the little Bird / That kept so many warm.” The speaker says that she has heard the bird of hope “in the chilliest land And on the strangest Sea”, but never, no matter how extreme the conditions, did it ever ask for a single crumb from her

]size=18]Hello every one Smile ,and this is my comment .

"Hope is the Thing with Feathers" is written by Emily Dickinson. The title of this poem describes hope as bird feathers. The main idea in this poem talks about hope. In the first line in the first stanza the speaker rewrite the title and she gives a great example of hope which is like bird feathers that make the soul of bird above to the top. She tries to say that a person who has hope feels happy and glad in his life . Every morning birds wake up and go to look for food and they are optimistic all the day and sing without stopping. Also, the speaker tries to send a message when a person faces problems in his life has to look forward and not to be pessimistic or feel bad because life will continue. Even birds face storms but they continue again .

About for me the hope is a great thing .it helps me to continue in the life . I have many things that I want to achieve but sometimes it is difficult for me but I am optimistic to pass these difficulties and may God help me . I love you

Some of my friends here said , "bird is the symbol of freedom so hope means freedom" ,and I agree with them flower [/size][justify][center]

Hello , flower

The poem " Hope is the thing with feathers " by Emily Dickinson was written in the 19th century . Emily was lonely , she lived her whole life wondering and looking around .
Which made the spirit of sense grow up inside her but she blotted spirit of misery according to her naughty and difficult circumstances in her life . After the war happened she thought that there will be no peace after today .

Dickinsons starts to describe th idea of hope in the free spirit of birds .
Saying that the soul is where hope should be . Birds also sing but with no words , and they continually sing without stopping at all.
Then the speaker mentioned that hope is like the sweetest wind .
Also in the coldest lands and in the worst storms . Hope is heard and it can be found anywhere .

Dickinson uses imagery and metaphore to describe her poem . Beginning with " hope is the thing with feathers " a metaphorical image , the speaker compares hope with the feathers or in other words , birds . It is like hope something that dies and the fly and come out like the angel's wings to heaven and without hope you can simply fall down to hell ." That perch in the soul " , can be seen as both an imagery and a metaphor . Where the speaker continually describes the idea of hope . The birds " sings " ,
hope is not just words it is about the feelings . " sweetest is the gale was heard " , we need hope mostly in hard times when things are going badly .
" chillest lands " , here is also another reason to have hope .

In conclusion , Emily Dickinson was able to handle those powerful combinations with depth . It also tells you how hope is really imortant in life especially in string and hard times .
