Students complete their analysis of “I felt a Funeral, in my Brain,” by considering the structural elements of Dickinson’s poem including the use of capitalization (both at the beginning of each line and for key details), rhyme, and rhythm. This lesson will employ a combination of focused annotation and questions to guide students to an understanding of Emily Dickinson’s structural choices.
