Dickson VS Whitman
Must follow the attached paragraph plan. Cited in MLA format.
The poetry of Emily Dickinson and Walt Whitman has been described as being emotionally opposite to each other. Dickinson’s poetry seems at times colder and more ciritical; whereas Whitman’s poetry conversely seems warm and expansive. First of all, do you agree? If so, then, develop for me a case that one of them or both are representative of American literature. Make your case and defend it.

Explain your answer in detail and use specific examples from the text. Remember: to cite and reference any sources that you may use, including the primary text itself. Use MLA formatting and standards.
Notes from the professor on what he is looking for in the writing:
–Use the words of the question in your response. –Use your mind, not your feelings. –If the question has a quotation, focus on it. –If the question does not a quotation, find an appropriate one and focus on it. –Always, always stay focused and stay textual. Finally, while I encourage you to use outside sources, I want you to document them properly. Do not just cut and paste material without proper attribution. Please use the MLA handbook as a guide.
Also if you could pull one or two two quotes from the story itself and another one or two quotes from other sources. That would be fantastic!
