There's a certain Slant of light

There's a certain Slant of light

by Emily Dickinson

There's a certain Slant of light: Name That Theme True or False

1. Those oppressive "Cathedral Tunes" reflect the poem's theme ofisolation
2. That "Heavenly Hurt" that leaves no scar works with the speaker's sense ofmortality
3. When the landscape "listens," it brings to mind the poem's theme ofawe and amazement
4. The slant of light in winter afternoons is the source of the speaker'slanguage
5. That "seal Despair" is a sort of metaphor for the speaker'ssuffering
