Homework Help: Literature

Posted by Dylan on Thursday, January 17, 2013 at 9:03am.

I just can't seem to figure this out.

In the poem "On this wondrous sea" by Emily Dickinson, which live indicates that the speaker has encountered challenges in her life?

A. On this wondrous sea
B. Sailing silently
c. Their anchors fast
d. Where the storm is o'er


Maybe its just because I'm looking at the poem and answers too literally, but even when I try to look at it figuratively it doesn't make sense. For me, this is not just about getting the answer. I have never understood this even when teachers tried to explain it. I'm a mathematical type person and need a step by step approach to understand sometimes and haven't received that yet.

Thanks for any help!
