Anti heroes are typically in conflict with a world they cannot control or whose values they reject. An anti hero is presented as a ridiculous character and the plot of the play follows what happens to the hero and is determined by the hero’s characteristics and choices as well as by circumstances.

Emily Dickinson’s Treatment of the Theme of Immortality

Dickinson was preoccupied with the questions of death and immortality. She was inquisitive about any mystery and her perplexity about it caused her poetic tension. The questions of belief and doubt centering round immortality wished that the soul never changed yet she denied the orthodox vision of paradise. However her confidence that love was an enduring entity supported her hope of immortality. She might have been in doubt sometimes that death was the gateway to immortality but she firmly believed that the soul’s identity could never be lost. She seems to have surveyed every domain of immortality and examined its relationship with death and life.

Emily Dickinson’s Treatment of the Theme of Immortality

Dickinson’s early poems depict the progress of her belief from life to death. In some of her poems Dickinson asserts her firm faith in the immortality of soul. ‘Two lengths has Everyday’ logically argues that the identity of soul cannot be lost because it is immortal. The soul not only perceives an object realistically but creates imaginatively its full image.
