Comment on Ethan Hua’s “A Narrow Fellow in the Grass” blog post which can be found here: https://ethansopinion.home.blog/2019/09/01/a-narrow-fellow-in-the-grass/

This poem was really enjoyable to read. I really liked how you not only masterfully imitated Dickinson’s form, but also the complex subtleties that make her poetry so interesting. I particularly found your use of personification, for the valley and the daggers quite complex, and gave a seemingly mundane scene, almost a mystic quality, that I think is what gives Dickinson’s work such allure. The way in which you concluded the poem with the same opening line, gave the poem a natural suspense and climax that made it such an enjoyable read. I look forward to reading your future blog posts.
