Keeping in mind Emily Dickinson was a virtual recluse, I think the first
stanza refers to her feeling anticipation or excitement at the idea of
leaving her self-imposed prison. The notion of flight or escape appeals to
The second stanza, first two lines might refer to the fact that all her
information is brought to her, perhaps censored and softened or maybe that
she doesn’t know firsthand of anyone’s personal, internal victory at
overcoming a fear like her own. The last two lines reveal her sense of
weakness in fighting that fear.

I think this poem doesn’t have any thing to do with war. “Quicker blood”
refers to her anxiety. She wants to escape a situation or state of mind.

O.K. Im not very good at the whole poem thing the only reason im in this
web site is because i'm doing a project, but i think that what she means is
that freedom has never been whithout a fight. She did live during the civil
war so maybe thats why she mentions blood.When she trys to escape and fails
i think that she had in mind the struggle of the civil war.Please make
comments onthis poem it would really help in my project on Emily Dickinson
if i had an idea of what others think.
