"Hope" is the thing with feathers Analysis



Author: poem of Emily Dickinson Type: poem Views: 19

"Hope" is the thing with feathers—
That perches in the soul—
And sings the tune without the words—
And never stops—at all—

And sweetest—in the Gale—is heard—
And sore must be the storm—
That could abash the little Bird
That kept so many warm—

I've heard it in the chillest land—
And on the strangest Sea—
Yet, never, in Extremity,
It asked a crumb—of Me.

"hope is the thing with feathers"- metaphor: hope is being compared to a bird, feathers: symbolizes insulation to the harsher realities
"without the words"- we cant put hope into words but we can feel its effect
"storm": symbolizes hardships
"that kept so many warm"- contant reasurrance
"chillest land & strangest sea"- most threatening and worst circumstances
"yet never in extremity it asked a crumb of me"- people don't realize that hope is always with them/ hope is our motivation, the bird stays with its owner and never asks for anything in return
themes- freedom, free will
surface level of the poem- its about the bird
deeper meaning- its about hope, using the bird as an example
the bird asks for nothing (last lines) is just like how hope is free
hope this somewhat helps :) w.t

hi im jasmine and this is my own opinion
In this poem, hope is described as a little bird: ¡°the thing with feathers¡± that lives in everyone¡¯s heart: ¡°that perches in the soul¡±. The little bird never stops giving hope, no matter what circumstance a person is facing. Nothing can defeat the bird; nothing can put down a person¡¯s hope. The little bird is with its person so matter how difficult and traumatizing life can be, yet it asks nothing in return from its owner. This poem tells how important hope is. It is what keeps us going in hard times, and works its magic the strongest when a person needs it the most. Hope is the thing that tells us to fight whatever is thrown at us. It is nature¡¯s way of keeping us alive and moving during life threatening moments. ¡°Yet, never, in extremity, it asked a crumb of me¡± could mean that we don¡¯t usually realize that it¡¯s hope that keeps us going, it is always there to help us, but do not ask to be helped. This is a very philosophical view of hope, and is true to our everyday life.

The poem is trying to send us a message;
There will always be tough times. And when things seem like they can't get any worse, one hope -small or big- manages to hold through.

I think its a beautiful poem, very well surmised by the first guest. My analysis is just another variation, a second angle.
The poem begins with the hope being likened to a bird except that it is inside of us (ie. hope is a feeling). This metaphor continues with the bird. The bird sings a tune that has no words. Here hope is being described as something that we cannot put into words or understand, yet we can feel its effect. The tune is clearest in a light breeze; This means that our hope is strongest in serenity.
The storm (a metaphor for hardship) must be cruel because it challenges the bird. Especially when the bird is a small delicate creature and it brings joy/ comfort to people. Here the author refers to hardship as challenging our hope. This is almost ironic, since the author knows that a storm does not choose to be cruel. A question about life perhaps? about the indifference of suffering?
The bird/hope exists in the harshest conditions/difficulties (on land and sea) yet the bird/ hope never asks us of anything. Here we can compare between hope and other emotions. Hope gives us a desire to continue and it does not require effort. As opposed to anger which can cause damage to us or happiness which may need hard work.
Throughout, the underlying theme is freedom, and hope a representative of freedom.

Some specialists argue that loan aid a lot of people to live the way they want, just because they are able to feel free to buy needed things. Furthermore, various banks present commercial loan for all people.

This poem is about how one creature cannot just be in one spot with another creature holding it hostage, it has to be let go and it might just come back. Like a bird migrating, it goes someplace for the summer and another for the winter. They cannot just be put into a cage and held as a prisoner they have a mind of their own and they need to live their lives like we have to live ours.

this poem is saying that even though others may have little faith i will still believe even though it is hard for me to.

I think she's saying "Hope" is unforgiving. We go through hardships and get "sore" through the storm, but we will prevail and get through it all as long as we trust that things will get better. The feathers are wings. Wings to soar. To fly through our hard times and all. Things can be shit, but as long as we have hope, we can surpass all of the negative and rise above our potential to be a better person. And hope/bird will not judge us, but comfort and guide us along the way.

This Poem is a metaphor comparing our hope to a bird. The bird perches in our soul and sings continuously,like how hope lives in your soul and it is eternal. The bird sings in the hardest conditions,like in the storm. This is a comparison to how hope is there no matter how difficult our situation may be. The bird ask for nothing, like how hope is free.

In my point of view, I see hope as the eager sound within us that keeps us yearning and wishing for something better. Hope rescues us from ourselves, form our fears, from our nightmares. It keeps us clinging into that imaginary rope, wishing, maybe, in time, someone or something would pull us out of the darkness, pull us out of the trouble we are in, offer us a loving hand, and a warm embrace!
Hope keeps us alive, for there is no life without hope, there is a saying in Arabic that says: “There’s no life with despair, there’s no despair with life”.
