    I'm not clear on what you mean by "opposition." Do you mean contrast? Or maybe "juxtaposition"? http://thesaurus.com/browse/opposition

    2)The poet teaches men how to understand themselves better. The subject of a poem is often a normal man with his problems.

    3) The use of black acquires negative connotations, whereas white becomes negative.<~~??? This happens because Marlow is against colonialism.

    4) The Romantics exalted the individual, the rebel because these people<~~Who are "these people" - the Romantics? or the rebels? rebelled against society, which was viewed as an evil force.

    5) One of the most important characteristics of a child was his uncorrupted sensibility, which brought him nearer to God.

    6)) For the frame narrator, the light was associated with calm, beauty, and peace, while darkness was associated with the evils caused by European colonization.

    Please note the addition and correction of all commas. All are needed; you have several parenthetical clauses in there, and they need to have commas setting them apart from the rest of the sentence.
