Trivia: Emily Dickinson uses a metaphor in “Hope Is the Thing With” what?
Correct Answer: Feathers
So why is this answer correct? : Regarded as one of the most important figures in American poetry, Emily Dickinson wrote nearly 1,800 poems, but her work wouldn’t become famous until after her passing in 1886. She titled less than 10 of her poems, so many today are titled by their first line or by a number given by posthumous editors. This poem describes hope as a bird, resting in the soul, that never wavers even in the face of hardships.
