Back in December, I tweeted about Emily Dickinson's use of the words "calm" and "wild" in her poems.
Well, true to her "Wild Nights! Wild Nights!" Ms. Dickinson did, in fact, use the word "wild" in more poems than she wrote about the "calm." As a matter of fact, she used the term "wild" in 11 poems, while she only used "calm" (or some form of it, like "calmness") in 6 poems.
Okay, so what about other opposites?
Was Dickinson more "hot" than "cold"? Was she more "day" than "night"? And what about "war" and "peace"?
I've looked into other sets of opposites below.
Let me know (via Twitter: @The_Dickinson) if you'd like to know about any other opposites.
