Emily Dickinson says that Success is sweeter to the ones who do not succeed often or at all to understand something so sweet required pain full need. She also says that No one who took up the flag today can understand the definition of victory clearly. When defeated and dying- his forbidden ears heard the strains of triumph bursting out loud and clear.
Emily Dickinson uses a metaphor to better explain how success is counted sweetest by the people who are not successful and how it takes painful need to get understand success and she does this by comparing it to nectar. She uses an allusion to explain that not all who try to succeed do. He also uses auditory imagery to create the sound of triumph.
