Read "A Psalm of Life" (p. 896) by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. What is his main point here? What lines strike you as particularly meaningful? And how can you apply this poem's message to your life?

Answer these questions and explore any other related ideas in a well developed paragraph. Including quotes from the poem to illustrate your points would be great. Remember you can build upon what others have said as well.

"Thanatopsis"
"Thanatopsis" by William Cullen Bryant
Read "Thanotopsis" (p. 848) by William Cullen Bryant. "Thanatopsis" literally means a "meditation upon death." What is Bryant telling us about death? How is his idea of what happens to us after we die unique? What do you think of it?
