8. “Then I told what a tall, upright, graceful person their great-grandmother Field once was, and how in her youth she was esteemed the best dancer – here Alice’s little right foot played an involuntary movement, till upon my looking grave, it desisted -- “Dream Children”- Visual imagery
9. “And so I interfered, and with the best / Intentions, but their treatment was not kind; / I think the foolish people were possessed, / For neither of them could I ever find, / Although their porter afterwards confessed-- / But that's no matter, and the Don Juan - Satirical; suggests Don Jose and Donna Inez were avoiding the narrator when he tried to interview them

16. “Then felt I like some watcher of the skies,/ When a new planet swims into his ken;/ Or like stout Cortez when with eagle eyes/ He star'd at the Pacific—and all his men/ Look'd at each other with a wild surmise—/ Silent, upon a peak in Darien.” - “Chapman’s Homer” - Personification (planet swimming); Allusion to Cortes and Darien; Similes
17. “The best laid schemes of mice an’ men/ Gang aft a-gley,/ An’ lea’e us nought but grief and pain,/ For promised joy.” “To A Mouse”- slant rhyme; Dialect
18. “The languages, especially the dead, / The sciences, and most of all the abstruse, / The arts, at least all such as could be said / To be the most remote from common use,/ In all these he was much and deeply read: Don Juan- satire (education of the day)

What leaf-fring'd legend haunts about thy shape/ Of deities or mortals, or of both,/ In Tempe or the dales of Arcady “Grecian Urn” - allusion; apostrophe (speaking to urn), visual imagery
Therefore am I still/A lover of the meadows and the woods,/And mountains... From this green earth.../Of eye, and ear, both what they half create,/And what perceive; well pleased to recognize/ In nature and the language of the sense,/The anchor.... “Tintern Abbey”- Personification of nature; Parallelism; Theme (Presence of God in nature)
Women are told ...justly termed cunning, softness of temper, outward obedience, and a scrupulous attention to a puerile kind of propriety, will obtain for them the protection of a man; and should they be beautiful, everything else is needless... “A Vindication on the Rights of Women”- parallelism
O, mighty poet! Thy works are not as those of other men, simply and merely great works of art; but are also like the phenomena of nature, like the sun and the sea, the stars and the flowers,--like frost and snow, rain and dew, hail-storm and thunder... “On Knocking on the Gate in Macbeth”- apostrophe; parallelism (frost and snow, rain and dew, etc.)

30. “He,--- (and not Wordsworth), so pursued / His self-communion with his own high soul, / Until his mighty heart, in its great mood, / Had mitigated part, though not the whole / Of its disease; he did the best... Like Coleridge, into a metaphysician.” - Don Juan - Allusion to Wordsworth and Coleridge; Satire (makes fun of them)
31. “Nor wilt thou then forget,/ That after many wanderings, many years/ Of absence, these steep woods and lofty cliffs,/ And this green pastoral landscape, were to me/ More dear, both for themselves and for thy sake!” “Tintern Abbey” - Color imagery; theme (joy of the shared experience)
Thou wast not born for death, immortal Bird!/ No hungry generations tread thee down;/ The voice I hear this passing night was heard/ In ancient days by emperor and clown:/ Perhaps the self-same song that found a path/Through the sad heart of Ruth... “Ode to a Nightingale” by Keats - Allusion to Ruth in the Bible; Apostrophe (talking to the bird)

38. “She knew the Latin--that is, "the Lord's prayer," / And Greek--the alphabet--I'm nearly sure; / She read some French romances here and there, / Although her mode of speaking was not pure;/ For native Spanish she had no great care, Don Juan- satire (education of the day)

Would men but generously snap our chains, and be content with rational fellowship instead of slavish obedience, they would find us more observant daughters, more affectionate sisters, more faithful wives, more reasonable mothers-in a word.. “A Vindication on the Rights of Women”- parallelism - reiterates the theme (be assertive, remain feminine)
