  1. I disagree with your answer to #1. Since I have no idea which Whitman or Dickinson poems your questions refer to, I have no idea.

  4. No, I don't think it's "d", either. Don't ask this one again. Remember an appeal to the "head" means an appeal to reason, not emotion.

    Your answer to #3 seems right to me. I agree. I also agree with your answer to #2, comparing the two poems.
