For Angela And Hannah
the Poem 'safe in their alabaster chambers' is about her perspective on the
resurrection. It is a wonderful poem I believe and helps put 'Papa Above'
in context.

Emily Dickinson, obviously is not a believer (Christian, Catholic,
Jewish etc...) one can notice this by looking into her other work. Emily is
refering to herself as a Mouse, but quickly degrades to a Rat. She knows
that she isn't religeous but she wants to go to heaven badly. "Rat" also
refers to her as A Sinner, she probably says that because she knows that
she herself is a sinner, and that the only way to get to God is to ask him
to save her a spot. Simular to her poem "I got so I could take His Name",
Emily states that she has tried to give God a chance but she didn't feel
anything, so she just pretends. But, I think that after living longer she
realized that there infact is a God but she doesn't want to fully except
Him in her life so she has to result in Asking Him to save her a spot, so
she doesn't have to go to hell.
