Author's Notes: I wrote "Bryant's Necropolis Conceit" as a Double Dactyl poem. I developed the idea for this write based on the poem, "Thanatopsis," written by the 19th century American romantic poet, William Cullen Bryant, beginning in 1813. Death, and the transition to it from the world of the living was a fascinating theme to Bryant. "Thanatopsis" is a Greek-derived title meaning "meditation on death." Bryant's style of poetic expression in Thanatopsis and his other poetry is definitely reflective of the Age of Romanticism. I touched on a few aspects of key symbolism here in my Double Dactyl interpretation that had some relational significance to Bryant's most well-known work.
